Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a mere directory of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam policy for further explanations. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, then please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. See the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.

Hi Hannahdolly. I tried to send you an email but it appears that your email is not enabled. Anyway, as you have participated in the discussions re Jajouka/Joujouka related articles, i thought you may be interested in reading the following email i've just sent to all concerned parties. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 22:39, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
Hi [sic] X.
Well, after the involvment of a few new editors and the status quo re wikipedia articles, i decided to move forward and sort out the problems once and for all. I'll be sending messages to every user concerned via their talk pages w/ 24h. I'll be citing the policies and guidelines related to the issues and ask everybody to work together to sort everthing out.
I will also ask everyone to divulge any sockpuppet account which may have been used in order to stop that behaviour and reach transparency. I'll not be hesitant to carry a CheckUser option if necessary in case no one wants to tell us about their socks. Divulguing socks would not lead to any punitive action from any admin as it is my promise and believe it would be the same promise Mel Etitis would give. The goal will be to stop that behaviour. I am not accusing anyone of using socks but that should apply to all.
Pls note that a copy of this email is being sent to all involved parties who are (in alphabetical order):
- and admin Mel Etitis
Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you've been adding your signature to some of your article contributions, such as you did to Mohamed Hamri. This is a simple mistake to make and is easy to correct. For future reference, the need to associate edits with users is taken care of by an article's edit history. Therefore, you should use your signature only when contributing to talk pages, the Village Pump, or other such discussion pages. For a better understanding of what distinguishes articles from these type of pages, please see What is an article?. Again, thanks for contributing, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! Thank you. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 23:07, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
Rather than adding external links with lengthy explanations to the Mohamed Hamri article, please consider incorporating any relevant information into the article text, then cite these websites as references. Thank you. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 23:07, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
- I'll ask you again to consider my previous suggestion: If the letters and interviews in these external websites contain information that is relevant to the article's subject, then incorporate that information into the article text, and cite the websites as references. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 15:12, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
