Hello, Padmacharan123. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Artabalabha Mohanti, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Artabalabha Mohanti to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.
If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.
I've removed the references you added to Bibhuprasad Mohapatra, because you were using Wikipedia pages as citations. This is problematic for two reasons:
- In an odd twist of logic, Wikipedia pages are not considered a reliable source for other Wikipedia pages. This is because of the "anyone can edit" nature of Wikipedia. While we strive to keep Wikipedia factual, we can't guarantee it, so other, less ethereal sources are required.
- The pages you cited did not actually verify the facts in question. Neither page actually mentions Mohapatra, so they couldn't be used to verify either his profession as a writer or his status as an alumnus of a particular school even if we could accept Wikipedia pages as valid sources.
Because the article has no valid sources, it runs afoul of Wikipedia's biographies of living persons policy that requires that all biographies of living persons created after a certain date must contain at least one valid source to verify at least one fact stated in the article. Since your article does not contain a valid source, it has been proposed for deletion. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 17:53, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
Nomination of Bibhuprasad Mohapatra for deletion
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bibhuprasad Mohapatra until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 04:41, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Wikipedia pages as citations
Please do not use Wikipedia pages as citations in other Wikipedia articles. Because anyone can edit Wikipedia, it is not considered a reliable source. For example, in your article on Biphuprasad Mohapatra, you referenced the page Oriya literature to verify the fact that Mohapatra is a popular science writer. The Oriya literature page does mention Mohapatra as a popular science fiction writer (a different category), but even this fact is not reliably sourced, so in the end, we are left with no reliable source for the fact that Mohapatra is a popular writer. I have removed this reference twice before with edit summaries explaining why. I hope this not clarifies the matter for you. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 11:59, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Bibhu Prasad Mohapatra
A tag has been placed on Bibhu Prasad Mohapatra, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:
- It appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. (See section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) If an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.
- It appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), individual animal, 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. (See section A7 of 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 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, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.
