The article Louis Dallara has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Also, please read WP:COI. NawlinWiki (talk) 01:37, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

As stated above, the article, when posted, needs to show how its subject is notable (see WP:BIO), and needs to show that the subject has been recognized as notable by reliable independent sources. Also, you appear to be writing about yourself, which is not a good idea. See Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. NawlinWiki (talk) 01:50, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

U don't give anybody any time to add any notable information. you just delete it. I guess one should write the whole thing so you don't delete it. I'm new to w and this is how you treat people.

Hi! Writing autobiographies is not usually a good idea for an encyclopedia; a great article that helps explain about notability is Wikipedia:Other stuff exists. Welcome to Wiki, I hope you decide to stay. EBY3221 (talk) 03:42, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

I am reading information which describes writing Biographies and self published biographies, Is this information not true ??? I'm confused by the admins responses. I just joined biographies group. maybe I didn't put it into the right format. See Article below:

Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search This page documents an official English Wikipedia policy, a widely accepted standard that all users should follow. When editing this page, please ensure that your revision reflects consensus. If in doubt, consider discussing changes on the talk page. Shortcuts: WP:LIVING WP:BLP

This page in a nutshell: Wikipedia articles can affect real people's lives. This gives us an ethical and legal responsibility. Biographical material must be written with the greatest care and attention to verifiability, neutrality and avoiding original research, particularly if it is contentious.

   If you are a user who is concerned about the accuracy or appropriateness of biographical material in a Wikipedia article about yourself, please see Dealing with articles about yourself, below.

Report any BLP incidents at the biographies of living persons noticeboard.

Editors must take particular care adding biographical material about a living person to any Wikipedia page. Such material requires a high degree of sensitivity, and must adhere strictly to all applicable laws in the United States and to all of our content policies, especially: Wikipedia policy Article standards Neutral point of view Verifiability No original research Biographies of living persons Working with others Civility Consensus No personal attacks Dispute resolution No legal threats Global principles What Wikipedia is not Ignore all rules

   * Neutral point of view (NPOV)
   * Verifiability
   * No original research

We must get the article right.[1] Be very firm about the use of high quality references. Unsourced or poorly sourced contentious material about living persons — whether the material is negative, positive, or just questionable — should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion, from Wikipedia articles, talk pages, user pages, and project space.[2]

Biographies of living persons (BLPs) must be written conservatively, with regard for the subject's privacy. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a tabloid; it is not our job to be sensationalist, or to be the primary vehicle for the spread of titillating claims about people's lives. An important rule of thumb when writing biographical material about living persons is "do no harm".

This policy applies equally to biographies of living persons and to biographical material about living persons on other pages. The burden of evidence for any edit on Wikipedia, but especially for edits about living persons, rests firmly on the shoulders of the person who adds or restores the material.
