- Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia
- Respect copyrights – do not copy and paste text or images directly from other websites.
- Maintain a neutral point of view – this is one of Wikipedia's core policies.
- Take particular care while adding biographical material about a living person to any Wikipedia page and follow Wikipedia's Biography of Living Persons policy. Particularly, controversial and negative statements should be referenced with multiple reliable sources.
- No edit warring or sock puppetry.
- If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to .
- Do not add troublesome content to any article, such as: copyrighted text, libel, advertising or promotional messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Deliberately adding such content or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism; doing so will result in your account or IP being blocked from editing.
- Do not use talk pages as discussion or forum pages as Wikipedia is not a forum.
The Wikipedia tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date).

Hello, I'm RA0808. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions because it appeared to be promotional. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you. The references added in your edits list an author with a name similar to your username, and when the links in said references are opened they point to a 403 Forbidden error.

- Hi RA0808, I was in the opinion that the author name in the references, should be my username.
- Therefore I have been putting my name not the website writer's name. I am correcting spelling mistakes, adding useful information where needed and generally doing good for Wikipedia project IMO.
- I love contributing to the knowledge here and helping enhance and grow this site.
- Thank you for trying to prevent spam, however that is not what I am doing.
- Hi RA0808, the website appears to just have had some server down time right now. If you check it now, easyscienceforkids.com it is back. I went there a few times to read articles for my kids and it is hardly ever down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CrystalSummers (talk • contribs) 18:00, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
- The other major problem with the site that you added is that it is not a reliable source in Wikipedia terms. We prefer things like actual peer-reviewed scientific papers. Also, all of the spelling "corrections"
