May 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Imogen Stuart has been reverted.
Your edit here to Imogen Stuart was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed ( is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a blog, forum, free web hosting service, fansite, or similar site (see 'Links to avoid', #11), then please check the information on the external site thoroughly. Note that such sites should probably not be linked to if they contain information that is in violation of the creator's copyright (see Linking to copyrighted works), or they are not written by a recognised, reliable source. Linking to sites that you are involved with is also strongly discouraged (see conflict of interest).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 20:44, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure if this is the way to reply to you. If not, my apologies.

I added two links to the Imogen Stuart page. As it happens they are both to pages of my own on the internet. The first is to my web page on St. Stephen's Church in Killiney, where Imogen was the resident artist when the church was being built. So she is responsible for the overall effect. It is a beautiful church and the purpose of my interting the link was to draw people's attention to the church and not to myself. I can vouch for the page as I took the photos myself.

The second link is to the men/women/disasbled signs on the public toilet in the Killiney Beach public carpark. I was taken with them, photographed them and subsequently discussed them with the local Dún Lasoghaire & Rathdown County Council who told me they had commissioned Imogen to do them. I thought they represented a very unusual, and humorous, aspect of her work and blogged them at the time. They are close by a 6th Century monastic site which explains the religious figures. Again my purpose was to draw attention to an aspect of Imogen's work rather than to myself.

If these external links are not acceptable, then more's the pity, but I will not pursue them further. As I said it was to illustrate Imogen's work rather than draw attention to myself that I inserted them.
