Speedy deletion nomination of User:Miningexplorer[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 User:Miningexplorer, 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 encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. I am One of Many (talk) 04:25, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Minaurum Gold - speedy deletion[edit]

Hi Jim,

I noticed that my page for Minaurum Gold Inc. was deleted and read the advertising clause for why it was deleted. I was not finished the page yesterday and planned to complete it today, and I was following a similar template "" and "" for the Minaurum page. Why did my page get deleted? Any guidance would be appreciated for improvement on the page.

First and foremost, you cannot use your user page for anything other than to tell us about yourself. To write about a company there is automatically promotional. If you had used the company as your user name, you would have been indefinitely blocked too.

Looking at the text, it's not awful, it's just in the wrong place. I'll soon post the text here because it needs a bit of work before it goes to Minaurum Gold.

  • links to other wikipedia pages just need [[name]] eg Vancouver
  • Refs look better if you do [url description] instead of a bare url
  • If you can add information about the company (employees? Turnover? Profits? Has the company ever received negative publicity? Who are its competitors?) that might help its credibility.

I might make a couple of tweaks when I post Jimfbleak - talk to me? 17:24, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
