February 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Ralph Fasanella do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. TeapotgeorgeTalk 20:54, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Bascove. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. TeapotgeorgeTalk 20:56, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Ming Fay. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. TeapotgeorgeTalk 21:00, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Your account has been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia because it appears to be mainly intended or used for publicity and/or promotional purposes. Please read the following carefully.

Why can't I edit Wikipedia?

Your account's edits and/or username indicate that it is being used on behalf of a company, group, celebrity or other well-known individual, or organization for purposes of promotion and/or publicity. The edits may have violated one or more of our rules on spamming, which include: adding inappropriate external links, posting advertisements, and using Wikipedia for promotion. Wikipedia has many articles on companies, groups, and organizations, but it is considered inappropriate for such groups to use Wikipedia to write about themselves. In addition, usernames like yours are disallowed under our username policy.

Am I allowed to make these edits if I change my username?
Probably not. See WP:FAQ/Organizations for a helpful list of frequently asked questions by people in your position. Also, review the conflict of interest guidance to see the kinds of limitations you would have to obey if you did want to continue editing about your company, group, or organization. If this does not fit in with your goals, then you will not be allowed to edit again. Consider using one of the many websites that allow this instead.
What can I do now?
You are still welcome to write about something other than your company or organization. If you do intend to make useful contributions on some other topic, you must convince a Wikipedia administrator that you mean it. To that end, please do the following:
  • Add the text {{unblock-spamun|Your proposed new username|Your reason here}} on your user talk page.
  • Replace the text "Your proposed new username" with a new username you are willing to use. See Special:Listusers to search for available usernames. Your new username will need to meet our username policy.
  • Replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason to be unblocked. In this reason, you must:
  • Convince us that you understand the reason for your block and that you will not repeat the edits for which you were blocked.
  • Describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked.
If you believe this block was made in error, please see how to appeal a block.

Requested username:

Request reason:

I am aware of the reasons for which I have been blocked. The first user name that I had choosen to use was directly related to the external links that I was attempting to add. On that note, the links that were added were not intended to be spam or to promote this organization, but to provide further information on the artist's pages about important public work that they have created. For people interested in searching these significant artists these links provide access to further information on public art projects that they have completed, some of which have been mentioned within their articles. I believe that it is important for people searching these artists to be able to research further into their entire oeuvre. Please let me know if there is a better way I should do this via this encyclopedia.

Accept reason:

Allowing username change to requested username, on the understanding that you will edit as described in your comment below. You will be blocked again if you continue in the same way, but I am expecting that you won't. Please put this request in at Wikipedia:Changing username as soon as possible to avoid re-blocking.

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

Here are a few key questions:

You are currently blocked because your username appears directly related to a company, group or product that you have been promoting, contrary to the username policy. Changing the username will not allow you to violate the three important principles above.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 22:31, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

I would like to change my username, please provide information with how to do so, so that I will not be in a conflict of interest when creating further posts. I do believe that the information that I was providing to these articles was very relevant and appropriate as I was providing further information on significant artwork created by these artists, work that was often already discussed in the article prior to my postings. Please allow me to change my username as I believe it is in the best interest of these artists to have information on their pages about these great works they have completed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MTAartsfortransit (talkcontribs)

Your sole edits have been to add the link to a website, contrary to WP:EL, which makes them WP:SPAM and WP:PROMO. As such, they won't be permitted, and you risk having that website blacklisted from use. If unblocked and allowed to change your name, what types of edits to you intend to make and towards what types of articles? (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 14:25, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Instead of just placing these links to an outside website I will add information to the body of the artists explaining these important public art projects that they have created (as they are important piece of art in the artists entire body of work, and they deserve to be recognized for them), and either cite this website as a source, or leave any link to the website out completely.. whichever is more preferable.
