Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to introduce inappropriate pages to Wikipedia, as you did at Claremont Primary School, you may be blocked from editing. If you need guidance on how to create appropriate pages, try using the Article Wizard.

Many different editors have offered you guidance and information about how to create new articles. You have been given the link to the Article Wizard several times. Yet you continue to create inappropriate pages. It's true that it can be difficult to understand all Wikipedia's rules at first, but at some point you need to stop and learn how to do it, because you don't seem to pay any attention to the guidance you've received so far. Why not visit the Tea house, which is a great place for new editors? You have a link there at the top of this page. There's a lot of really helpful and nice people there, who can help you create articles that won't get deleted immediately. bonadea contributions talk 15:00, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on 2004 - 2075 birthdays, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 15:47, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you create an inappropriate page, as you did at Talk:Italian Club, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

You have made a few constructive edits, but you apparently pay no attention at all to the many requests that you stop creating nonsense pages, pages about subjects that are not notable, and other inappropriate pages. You will be blocked if you keep creating such pages. bonadea contributions talk 16:27, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Greg, please listen[edit]

I've put the warning back. This is serious, now. You should be understanding by now that posting stuff about yourself and your school is not what Wikipedia is for. I don't want to discourage you completely from editing - North British, Arbroath and Montrose Railway was started by you and has been turned into a useful article by others. But most of the stuff you are posting is not stuff that belongs in an encyclopaedia. You seem to be young, and you seem to be keen. Good. What you must be too is ready and able to learn. 'Wikipedia is free to edit' - yes. But Wikipedia has rules. Schools have rules, too, don't they? What happens if you keep on breaking them? Well, what happens here is that you get blocked from editing. Usually for a short time at first, but then for longer and/or indefinitely. That doesn't mean 'for ever' - that would be 'infinitely'. It means until we think you are ready to come back and fit in properly. I can see you being a part of the future of Wikipedia as a good editor. Don't blow your chances now. Talk to the people at the Teahouse WP:TEAHOUSE. They can help to find things for you to do as you learn more about this very complicated place. OK? I'm watching this page and want you to leave the warning for a couple of weeks to remind you of this. If you take it and this message down, I'll know you don't want to be helped. Up to you, then... Peridon (talk) 11:13, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

I just want to second what Peridon said here. I didn't place those warnings on this page because I think you are a bad person - I definitely don't think that. And like Peridon, I think you can become a really good editor. It's just that an editor who keeps making edits that are not constructive or positive for the encyclopedia creates a lot of work for other editors. That means that even if such an editor doesn't mean any harm, if they don't stop and listen to advice (and warnings) they will unfortunately be blocked in the end.
Try the Teahouse - the people there are really helpful. Maybe you could try asking about how to help improve Wikipedia's articles about Scottish railways? That seems to be something you're interested in. Just a suggestion. But talk to more experienced editors first, to find out how you can edit without having your edits reverted. --bonadea contributions talk 11:06, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
