Speedy deletion nomination of Getlenses.co.uk[edit]

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

A tag has been placed on Getlenses.co.uk, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be unambiguous advertising that 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 general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item G11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of Getlenses.co.uk and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. - 220.101 talk\Contribs 14:19, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Hey there; just for the time being, I've moved your article to Wikipedia:Article Incubator/Getlenses.co.uk so that it doesn't get deleted. Thank you for submitting it, and welcome to Wikipedia; I'm sorry your first piece of contact was someone snarking at you!
Now, the main problem is that it looks like advertising. Wikipedia maintains a "neutral point of view"; we try to avoid, at all times, appearing biased or using subjective language. This is the thing that needs to be corrected - once it is, I'm happy to move the article back to its original location where everyone can see it. If you need any help or have any questions, just leave a message here or on my talkpage and I'll be happy to assist you. Thanks, and welcome again. Ironholds (talk) 15:59, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Contact lens do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 18:05, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. Deli nk (talk) 17:36, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on Getlenses.co.uk, 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 and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), 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. 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. Catfish Jim & the soapdish 11:19, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Ignore all of the above tags, Linz; I've reverted their requests for deletion. If you need any help getting this up to scratch (or would like me to look for sources for you) just let me know. Thanks, Ironholds (talk) 10:51, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
