Hi your post on Talk:Jimmy Wales is not quite the correct location to discuss with mr Wales - here User talk:Jimbo Wales - is the location for discussion with him. Regards - note I moved it for you to here - I do think that you should explain your question a little more though. Off2riorob (talk) 16:06, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages, as you did to Culver City High School. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you. Please create an article about yourself rather than promoting your own website. That will help ensure WP:BIO is met. tedder (talk) 03:43, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Mary_Alice_Pearce_DeVane[edit]

Hello, Joefaust,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Mary_Alice_Pearce_DeVane should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mary_Alice_Pearce_DeVane .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks, heather walls (talk) 05:03, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Joefaust, I'm responding to your message from my talk page. "That article effort on the noteworthy person Mary Alice DeVane was probably my last." I'm sorry to hear that. What is going on right now is a discussion about whether the article for Mary Alice Pearce DeVane should be deleted, and you should join that here. Every article in good standing on Wikipedia needs to prove the notability of the subject to certain standards. It is my opinion that Mary does not reach those standards, I looked for more evidence of reliable secondary sources and could not find any. In fact I always look to improve an article before nominating it for deletion. There is still time to support your claims at that link. If you want to discuss what makes something or someone notable and how an article should be built, there are experienced editors at the Teahouse who can talk about that with you. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. heather walls (talk) 23:33, 25 August 2012 (UTC)


Joe, you were topic banned from all hangliding and paragliding-related content in late 2011 because of your habit of approaching it with a conflict of interest to promote your own activities. this is clearly hangliding related, and edits such as this one are a prime example of what got you topic banned in the first place. I have blocked you for a month, and when you return I expect to see a change in behaviour. If this change doesn't appear, the next block will be an indefinite one.

Hello. There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Mangoe (talk) 16:51, 7 February 2013 (UTC) Sorry, I looked on the page and could not find what you might have in mind; help requested; thanks. Joefaust (talk) 16:55, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
