Your contributed article, School violence in japan[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, School violence in japan. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – School violence in Japan. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at School violence in Japan – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. PamD 23:09, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

user:PamD, I appreciate your courtesy. I think that I inadvertently created two entries. One in which I capitalized "Japan," and one in which I used the lower case, writing "japan." I think it is appropriate to delete the entry "School violence in japan." Iss246 (talk) 01:23, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Thank you for your recent articles, including School violence in Poland, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. For example, WikiProject Poland relies on such templates to generate listings such as Article Alerts, Popular Pages, Quality and Importance Matrix and the Cleanup Listing. Thanks to them, WikiProject members are more easily able to defend your work from deletion, or simply help try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information about using those talk page templates. PS. Also please note the stub template and location category I've added in [1], if you could go and add those elements to your other articles it would help to increase their visibility.

Thanks. Can you add categories to School violence in Bulgaria? They are very useful. Category code is very simple, see [2], and check out the Wikipedia:HotCat gadget. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:28, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

October 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Elizium23. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Personality test, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Elizium23 (talk) 02:22, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

User:Elizium23, you are right. Thanks for remedying the situation. Iss246 (talk) 18:56, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Mittal spam[edit]

Hi I noticed your edits and I double-checked what's going on. On one hand, Vikas Mittal http://business.rice.edu/Vikas_Mittal/ claims to be notable] in the area of marketing research. On the other hand it seems to be a major campaign tnow o spam wikipedia with Mittal's references:

I don't have time now to think how to handle such situations. At the first glance, the additions may be relevant, but I feel uneasy at such massive infusion of a single name. Which discussion boards do you think will be relevant to notify? WP:COI comes to my mind. - üser:Altenmann >t 22:44, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

User:Altenmann. It seems as if we have a professor of marketing, who is marketing himself. Iss246 (talk) 01:34, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

keen observation :-). - üser:Altenmann >t 17:20, 8 November 2015 (UTC)
