Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia

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).

November 2013[edit]

Information icon 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.

The main issue aside (thank you for clarifying that), the links you are adding are point to a 403 Forbidden error. Broken links should not be added to Wikipedia as sources, since no one can access them to verify their reliability and content. RA0808 talkcontribs 17:50, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi RA0808, the website appears to just have had some server down time right now. If you check it now, 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 (talkcontribs) 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"

you have made were simply changes from British to American English, which are not a good idea here. Graham87 09:22, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
