Please bear these points in mind while editing Wikipedia:
- Respect intellectual property rights - do not copy and paste text or images directly from other websites.
- Maintain a neutral point of view - this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
- Take particular care while adding biographical material about a living person to any Wikipedia page. Particularly, controversial and negative statements should be referenced to multiple reliable sources.
- If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
- Do not add troublesome content to any article, such as: copyrighted text, libel, advertising or promotional messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Deliberately adding such content or otherwise editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism, doing so will result your account or IP being blocked from editing.
The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ (the software will replace them with your signature and the date). Again, welcome! —Amplitude101 (talk) 06:56, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Roh Moo-hyun, but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses novel, unpublished syntheses of previously published material. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. —Amplitude101 (talk) 06:56, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Dear Justiceandjustice, I noticed that you added something of an essay to the bottom of the page on Roh Moo-hyun explaining your theory that Roh Moo-hyun did not commit suicide. While I don't have any opinion on the validity of this, one of Wikipedia's policies involves the exclusion of original research from article mainspace. The policy expalins "Wikipedia does not publish original research or original thought. This includes unpublished facts, arguments, speculation, and ideas; and any unpublished analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to advance a position. This means that Wikipedia is not the place to publish your own opinions, experiences, arguments, or conclusions." I would advise you to post your theory on the Roh Moo-hyun's discussion page, so that you and other editors can discuss your argument and reach consensus about its inclusion in the article mainspace. Please understand: this is not to discourage your opinion about Roh Moo-hyun, but merely to ensure that opinion goes in the right place. Rising*From*Ashes (talk) 07:13, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
