{{helpme}} {{helpme}} I am the sole source for reference for this new resource tool. I care to add this under the description.

Thank you!

Hello, see the bottom response. In addition, if you cannot find any other information about the tool other than yourself, it is unlikely that the tool is notable enough.  fetchcomms 21:12, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Also, the article seems little more than a dictionary definition. Keep in mind that Wikipedia is not a dictionary. Thank you,  fetchcomms 21:15, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Hello, Damefrank, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions.

I notice that one of the first articles you have edited appears to be dealing with a topic with which you may have a conflict of interest. In other words, you may find it difficult to write about that topic in a neutral and objective way, because you are, work for, or represent, the subject of that article. Your recent contributions may have already been reverted for this very reason.

To reduce the chances of deletion, you might like to draft your article before submission, then get me or any other editor to proofread it. To start creating a draft article, just click your user name at the top of the screen when you are logged in, and edit that page as you would any other. If the page you created has already been deleted from Wikipedia, but you want to save the content from it to use for that draft, don't hesitate to ask anyone from this list and they will copy it to your user page.

The one firm rule we do have in connection with conflicts of interest is that if more than one person is using this account to edit, then unfortunately it will be blocked from editing.

If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!

I am the sole source of reference for this new reference tool. May I be cited as a reference? I am the creator/author/publisher/distributor. It is listed on Amazon.com. How do I tell the world about this if I comment and definition aren't citable? Please advise. Thank you very much!Damefrank (talk) 21:06, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

You cannot cite yourself as a reference, and it is discouraged to cite works of yours as a reference (this is a conflict of interest.  fetchcomms 21:09, 8 January 2010 (UTC)Damefrank (talk) 21:11, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
