December 2013[edit]

WP:ABOUT WP:NOT and WP:COI are at least 3 of about 5 basic principles you need to understand very clearly before accusing a WP:ADMIN of anything (viz your conversation with Graham).

If I was an admin I would have blocked you outright If you want to know whay, I can explain but...

  • (1) even if you are new user you need to see that WP:en is not a log of adventures on the CSR, you are much better to inhabit blog sphere than try to edit on wikipedia about such nicieites of peoples behaviour out there on the CSR (I know a few anthros who know where some real dead bodies are if you wish to know where I come from)
  • (2) using your real name as your user name and writing about your exploits (or others) is close to being given a lecture similar to the links I have given first. You are in effect giving wp editors the option of the option of the message: -

what you could have been sent[edit]

(substitute first article for CSR)


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

I notice that one of the first articles you created appears to be an article about yourself. This is a common mistake made by new Wikipedians—as this is an encyclopedia, we wouldn't expect to have an article about every contributor. Your user page, however, is a great place to write about yourself, making sure to stay within user page guidelines. Just click your user name at the top of the screen when you are logged in, and edit it normally.

The page you created about yourself may well be deleted from the encyclopedia. If it is deleted and you wish to retrieve its contents, don't hesitate to ask anyone from this list and they will copy it to your user page.

Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{help me}} before the question. Again, welcome!

It simply is not done and there a number of procedures that you can be led through if you wish to continue editing and not attract negative sanction.

  1. change your user name
  2. find WP:RS about what you are writing
  3. check wp NOT and ABOUT - given above

There are other guidelines, but that is enough for the moment satusuro 09:57, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Another welcome[edit]

Gaynor Schoeman, To quote directly from Wikipedia policy (see WP:SPS) , "anyone can create a personal web page or publish their own book, and also claim to be an expert in a certain field. For that reason self-published media—whether books, newsletters, personal websites, open wikis, blogs, personal pages on social networking sites, Internet forum postings, or tweets—are largely not acceptable." end quote. Your chosen user name is the same as the name of the subject of your recent edits to Canning Stock Route, thus indicating the edits fall into the category of self published media. Graham87 who is an administrator is simply following Wikipedia policy. You have not been blocked from editing Wikipedia, it does take time though to understand what Wikipedia represents.
