Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week for your long-term efforts to improve Wikipedia. Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Yash submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

Allow me to introduce User:IllaZilla. I remember when I first saw this award, his name poped right into my head. IllaZilla is a true, hard working and dedicated content writer. He has been here for 9 long years and has written over 200 articles, started and maintained a WikiProject (Alien), worked extensively with articles related to the Alien films (1 FA and 2 GAs), punk rock (especially Blink-182), emo and has indirectly contributed a lot to a number of articles that are GAs today. Nearly 60% of his 59K edits come from the main space. He has dedicated a great amount of his time to many articles which is evident from the fact that he has an impressive 100+ edits to about 60 articles. Other than that, he has provided more than 70 photographs of a number of bands and musicians. IllaZilla has been an excellent long standing editor and a very valuable asset. It is my pleasure to nominate him; he truly deserves to be rewarded. This nomination was supported by User:Titodutta and User:MelanieN.

Multiple nominations[edit]

I've just replied to one of your speedy deletion notices, but rather than reply to them all, I thought I'd just ask instead: why are they being nominated for deletion? It doesn't make sense to me; all of these things are important parts of my life and I don't see why people shouldn't be allowed to know about them. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 07:11, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Please see WP:NOTWEBHOST. Wikipedia is not a web host for your fiction writings or promotion of your band. These things may be important to you, but they have nothing to do with Wikipedia. If you want people to know about them, I suggest you use another avenue such as a blog; Wikipedia is not the place. See also WP:UPYES. Please delete these pages by placing {{Db-u1}} on them, otherwise I will likely nominate them for deletion at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion. --IllaZilla (talk) 07:15, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I know what you're thinking now... please understand that these pages are by no means a WP:SELFPROMOTION or anything of the sort. Let me talk to a couple of other editors first; if these pages are to be deleted, I don't want to be doing it in a hurry. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 07:25, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Since you are directing other editors to look here, I'll list the pages in question for reference:
This all seems to be blatant WP:NOTWEBHOST stuff to me. --IllaZilla (talk) 07:45, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree with IllaZilla. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 10:03, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
All right, all right, I'm going to do it in the morning. But you don't seem to have put much thought into how long these pages have been up and how long other editors have known about these pages, which is the only reason why I'm disappointed that it's come to this point (basically, because I put a lot of work into them). That was the only reason for my hesitation, and that's why I wanted to confirm first. Thank you for your time. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 12:57, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. I'm not trying to be a buzzkill, it just seems you've got the wrong idea regarding the purpose of userspace and are treating it like a personal website. How long you worked on the pages isn't really relevant if they've got nothing to do with Wikipedia or its goals. I think "how long other editors have known about these pages" is a spurious argument...these pages have only existed for a few months, they're tucked away in userspace (user subpages are seldom visited except by the user who created them), and they have very few page views (what page views they have are probably from you). With respect, I doubt any other editors did know about these pages, or they'd likely have been nominated for deletion sooner. Again, no disrespect intended toward your creative endeavors, but this content doesn't belong on Wikipedia. Best of luck with both the music and the writing. --IllaZilla (talk) 15:22, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
