Welcome[edit]

Hello, Lukekinzel, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of your edits have not conformed to Wikipedia's verifiability policy, and have been reverted. Wikipedia articles should refer only to facts and interpretations that have been stated in print or on reputable websites or other forms of media. Always remember to provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is likely to be challenged, or it may be removed. Wikipedia also has a related policy against including original research in articles.

There is a page about the verifiability policy that explains the policy in greater detail, and another that offers tips on the proper ways of citing sources. If you are stuck and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!  RadioFan2 (talk) 12:18, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Kiev Christian Academy Alumni Association[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 Kiev Christian Academy Alumni Association 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 a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, 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 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. Pol430 talk to me 17:06, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Kiev Christian Academy Alumni Association[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, thank you for taking the time to create a page here. It might not have been your intention, but you recently removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you created yourself. Because Wikipedia policy does not allow the creator of the page to remove deletion tags, an automated program has replaced the deletion tag you removed from Kiev Christian Academy Alumni Association. Please do not continue to remove the deletion tag, instead, if you disagree with the deletion, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the page by clicking this link. Once there, select the button that says Click here to contest this speedy deletion.
  2. This will take you to the talk page, where you can make your case by explaining why the page does not meet Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do. For further help about the deletion, you could contact the user who first placed the tag or a highly active user who is willingly to help with deletion. This message was left by a bot, so please do not contact the bot about the deletion. Thank you, - SDPatrolBot (talk) 19:15, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

First of all, we do not encourage professional editors on Wikipedia (and I am pleased that you aren't one). Wikipedia has a very small number of employees, some of whom edit as well - but their editing is not done as employees. There are some people who create Wikipedia pages for money, and their efforts usually get deleted fairly quickly. The rest of us, admins and bureaucrats and ordinary editors, are all volunteers. Secondly, you show no notability for the association. Not every group is notable, and if Facebook is the best reference you can find, then this one probably isn't. Look at WP:CLUB about notability, and WP:RS about the sort of reference you need to prove the notability. References that are reliable and independent are also needed for the Academy's article, without which it could be nominated for deletion. If you try again, read those policies first. Find the refs before you post anything. At one time, articles with no claim to notability for their subjects could be created in the hope that someone would get round to it later. Now, we need there to be a sound basis for an article at the start. Otherwise, we'd be overwhelmed with articles that would never be fit for inclusion. Peridon (talk) 20:12, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
