Speedy deletion nomination of Ecuador maize varieties[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Ecuador maize varieties requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

I have declined this speedy deletion nomination as the article does not appear to about an organisation or a company, but about varieties of maize in Ecuador. I would, however, suggest adding sources into the article and continuing to work on the article. Happy editing. Regards -- Александр Дмитрий (Alexandr Dmitri) (talk) 08:09, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

New Articles[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Giorgio V. Brandolini, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on discussion 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 {{helpme}} before the question. Again, welcome!

I recently noticed your new articles. A nice start on an interesting topic! I have recently made many changes to some of those articles. When you have the chance please familiarise yourself with Wikipedia's Manual of Style, especially:

  • Italics (They don't need to be used for emphasis nor for names.);
  • Wikilinks (something like "agronomist" should be linked, random dates such as 1908 should not. Also check where the link goes - hybrid, inbred etc go to pages that have nothing to do with the subject. There is no need to continue to wikilink the same word to the same article repetitively, eg maize or Italy.);
  • See also (no need to wikilink an article already linked within the body of the article, some were titled in Italian, some wikilinks were in the external link section.);
  • National varieties of English (systematization, valorization, with a "z" are American English, programme, centre are British English.)

Please don't take any offense, I'm merely offering some of my limited knowledge, always open to correction, and saving someone else from spending time copyediting. Thanks! Jaydec (talk) 22:00, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
