Welcome!

Hello, Lexusperplexus, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, like BaseKit, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.
Thank you.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article.

Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of BaseKit[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on BaseKit, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Sockpuppetry case[edit]

Puppeter template.svg

Your name has been mentioned in connection with a sockpuppetry case. Please refer to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Stanwriter for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to cases before editing the evidence page.

  • To expand on the above message: Ecw.technoid.dweeb noticed a pattern in the edits made by this account and by Stanwriter (talk · contribs) that suggest that one person might be using both accounts. The general rule of thumb is that each person should have one account. The more stringent rule is that a user may not use two or more accounts to abuse the system—and, in my opinion, no abuse has occurred with these two accounts yet, and I've recommended that there be no further investigation or potential sanctions.
That said, there are some common reasons why this situation may arise:
  1. A user could have forgotten the password to his old account, created a new one, and then recovered or remembered the password.
  2. Two users with a common interest could be editing the article at the same time—including two friends, coworkers, or other associates.
Do either of these two situations apply to you? Again, there is no potential penalty for admitting that you've used two accounts or know the other editor. Quite the contrary: admitting the connection between the accounts (should one exist) would be viewed as a show of honesty and willingness to work within the guidelines and earn you some goodwill from many editors on here.
I do ask for the courtesy of a reply to my question here. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask, either in your response here or on my talk page. Happy editing! —C.Fred (talk) 14:51, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi there!

Stanwriter (talk · contribs) is a colleague of mine and we work in the same office, so will share IP addresses when we're both at work. I hope this helps! :-) Lexusperplexus (talk) 15:36, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for clearing the situation up. Again, as long as you two go about your individual editing paths, there's no problem. If you were to periodically "gang up" on certain issues, that could raise eyebrows. However, I don't see any evidence of that. —C.Fred (talk) 15:52, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
