Notice Coming here to ask why I deleted your article? Read this page first...

If that doesn't help, read these FAQs.

1. Why did you delete my page when I hadn't finished writing it?

Answer: Don't create new articles unless you are sure they meet wikipedia's criteria, particularly notability and verifiability. If you want to practice, there is the sandbox facility and Wikipedia:Articles for creation where you can get a second opinion from a more experienced contributor. And if you really can't help yourself, use {{underconstruction}} so other people will know you are still working on it.

2. Why did you delete my page for advertising? I wasn't trying to advertise!

Answer: Read Wikipedia:NPOV for guidance on how to word an article so that it doesn't sound like an advertisement.

3. Why did you delete my page for advertising? It was about a non-profit organisation!

Answer: Non-profit organisations advertise all the time - it's still promotion and the rule applies to them just as it does to commercial bodies. See no 2 above.

4. Why did you delete my article without warning?

Answer: Because you are not entitled to a warning if you don't follow the guidelines. See no 1 above.

5. Why didn't you do a google search and find references for my article and put them in for me instead of just deleting it?

Answer: Because I don't have time to do the boring bits for you. I have enough boring bits of my own to work on, thank you.

6. You have a very interesting view of neutrality. The authors you give credence to have a definite point of view and you discount those that disagree.

Answer: There is of course no answer because this is not a question. It's a snide comment added by someone who doesn't understand the NPOV rule. Possibly a Ricardian revisionist.

And please SIGN YOUR POSTS, otherwise I don't know who is asking me the question!


Please don't waste your time trying to steal my wikipedia ID. Mr in Sydney, Australia, is just one of many who have tried and failed to do this because it didn't occur to them that the new password would be sent to my e-mail address, not theirs. Mr in London is another. And now Ms in Wisconsin. And Mr in Kansas (this guy was so stupid he tried a second time using And here comes the latest chumpion, Mr in Kolkata. Today's nitwit is Mr, somewhere near Pittsburgh. And now Mr 2607:FB90:8A2:7CF2:0:2D:55C2:101 in Washington state.

Photos of Wales[edit]

Hello, your name is listed here which seems a good way of reaching out to people editing articles related to Wales. As such I thought you might be interested in a notice at WikiProject Wales highlighting some newly available photos of buildings and places across Wales.

Tag on Renaud Piarroux page[edit]

I am not used with wikipedia but have carefully read the wikipedia pages and can't really see why the tag on Renaud Piarroux page was put. All the words in this article can be verified. He is currently helping Haitian authorities eradicating cholera. In the last two weeks, many newspapers and TV have cited his work (see at the end). This work is resumed in a book intitled "deadly river" written by an emeritus professor of epidemiology at UCLA, which seams to be necessary to appear in Wikipedia.

So please could you be more specific and help to improve this article? Which part has to be deleted?

I try to delete some details. Would the following version agree to you?

Dark Series, Books 24-30[edit]

That would be this list:

I got everything from the official site of the author, Christine Feehan. Thought putting the link to read the first chapter directly from the site would be enough to show where I got everything from. I'm sorry for assuming. It is my fault. Please tell me how to fix this so that others may learn about her wonderful books. As for Dark Legend, Dark Symphony, and Dark Hunger, they didn't go to their own pages on the books, but sent people back to Christine Feehan's wikipedia page. This is all so confusing. I even put their awards and everything. What was wrong with them?

Hey Deb. I've tagged Emilywake's articles for WP:RD1. All of the plot sections were copyright violations. — JJMC89(T·C) 21:30, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi there. I've started a new initiative, the Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. It's a long term goal to bring about 10,000 article improvements to the UK and Ireland. Through two contests involving just six or seven weeks of editing so far we've produced over 1500 improvements. Long term if we have more people chipping it and adding articles they've edited independently as well from all areas of the UK then reaching that target is all possible. I think it would be an amazing achievement to see 10,000 article improvements by editors chipping in. If you support this and think you might want to contribute towards this long term please sign up in the Contributors section. No obligations, just post work on anything you feel like whenever you want, though try to avoid basic stubs if possible as we're trying to reduce the overall stub count and improve general comprehension and quality. So any time you feel like doing work on Welsh history or whatever just add your entries to the masterlist with a brief description like "destubbing by Deb" etc. Thanks.

I'll update that main list once the West Country challenge is complete though so don't worry about adding your entries for the contest to it!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:19, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
