Hello, Owlsfan, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions; I hope you like the place and decide to stay. We're glad to have you in our community! Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Though we all make goofy mistakes, here is what Wikipedia is not. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to see the help pages or add a question to the village pump. The Community Portal can also be very useful.

Happy Wiki-ing!

WANdisco, again[edit]

Hello; you said on my talk page:

Rewrote WANdisco WANdisco and the link from distributed computing. Let me know what you think and if it passes the intgr test.

The problem is, you didn't rewrite it, you just added a single statement and copied the remaining advert from Replication (computer science), which is also marked with {{advert}} already. And you were so blatant at it that you forgot to remove the citation mark "[1]", and misplaced a link.

I also have a feeling that you never actually paid attention to my message on the talk page, and nor the neutral point of view policy of Wikipedia (which is so helpfully pointed out by the advert box). The article also falls short of notability and verifiability.

Your behavior and attitude ("and if it passes the intgr test") seems to imply that you are not here to write an encyclopedia, but just to get the article over with, presumably for advertisement. This is a conflict of interest, so perhaps you're better off not editing it in the first place. And note that Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertisement.

I will list the article for propsed deletion. If you remove the tag without actually improving the article in an encyclopedic sense, I am going to pursue articles for deletion. If I was correct about your conflict of interest, I would advise sparing the effort. -- intgr 10:22, 15 February 2007 (UTC)
