Help me call[edit]

what exactly do I need to do to libre knowledge? I have added a lead section, and removed the wikify alert. Is that okay, or is there more I should do? Thanks Kctucker 11:52, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

I'll take a look at the article in just a moment for you. In general, "wikifying" an article means re-writing or re-organizing it to make it fit Wikipedia's Manual of Style, the formatting that all articles are expected to meet. Hersfold (talk/work) 15:18, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I've taken a look and it looks as though you've done a fairly good job. I fized the section heading for you just now - so that articles are organized properly, we use two equal marks to create main level headings and more for lower level headings, like so:
==Heading Level 1==
===Sub-heading 1===
====Sub-sub-heading, and so forth====
There are still a few things that may need improvements in the article which I left because I wasn't sure how they should be handled. I figured I shopuld leave them to someone who actually knew how the article was supposed to appear. Just take a look at the Manual of Style (linked above), and you should be fine. Please let me know if you have any more questions, either by adding another {{helpme|question}} template or by leaving a comment on my talk page. Happy editing!

deletion[edit]

I'm not sure which article you're referring to, but here's what I do when I look at pages to delete.

  • Check the speedy deletion template to see the reason
  • Check the article history to see if it's just accidental vandalism
  • Check "what links here"

If a page meets the speedy deletion criteria, then I delete it. As an admin, that's all I'm doing. It's probably the people who put the speedy deletion template on the article in the first place that you'd want to talk to.

And yes, it does help to have the article more or less prepared before you create it. Doing a little more work ahead of time before hitting the submit button will save a lot of time in the long run. Let me know if you have any more questions. Have a great day and happy editing! ~ Amalas rawr =^_^= 20:36, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Object International Software Ltd[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.

A tag has been placed on Object International Software Ltd requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Cntras (talk) 09:27, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

In the old days a page like this would be found by someone else with an interest in the topic. That person would edit and improve the article. So would the next person, and the next, .... Nowadays new pages disappear so quickly that this process of iterative incremental improvement, which made Wikipedia great, is broken. New knowledge resources get killed before anyone gets a chance to exercise their freedom to enhance them. - K (talk) 11:30, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
