January 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Nondestructive testing 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 to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Wizard191 (talk) 14:02, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Wind. 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. Materialscientist (talk) 00:17, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

Please stop adding inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive. It is considered spamming and Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, additions of links to Wikipedia will not alter search engine rankings. If you continue spamming, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Old Moonraker (talk) 10:17, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your advice! It wasn't my intention to "spam" or advertise on Wikipedia. I can understand that external company links seem to be advertisement, but sometimes they do provide useful information. Thus, I cannot understand why you didn't cleave to the rules you've mentioned above and left the link to Bureau Veritas and Intertek... !? Further, I added only valuable information on Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive for RoHS II and other standards. Why did you revert this? Please don't get me wrong - I just like to understand your intentions in order to improve my contributions!!! Portrino (talk) 08:26, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

"Cleave to the rules": valid point. I've now taken a cleaver to a few other links in the section. --Old Moonraker (talk) 09:20, 13 April 2011 (UTC)


Thank you! However, I'm still wondering what your decision is based on... For example: You can still find the Intertek Group in Reference no. 22 which only leads to the their Press Releases. I don't think that this is an appropriate reference.
Many thanks!!! Portrino (talk) 11:23, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
The rules for references are more relaxed: see WP:ELPOINTS #1. --Old Moonraker (talk) 06:06, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Good to know. Many thanks! Portrino (talk) 08:35, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

This is your last warning; the next time you insert a spam link, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Persistent spammers may have their websites blacklisted, preventing anyone from linking to them from all Wikimedia sites as well as potentially being penalized by search engines.

Thanks for your warning. However, I've already had this discussion with Old Moonraker. He/ she told me that "The rules for references are more relaxed: see WP:ELPOINTS #1." ...I'm a bit confused now, as I've only attached references with general descriptions on the amended topics. For example: Within the article on Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive, you can still find the Intertek Group in Reference no. 22 which only leads to the their Press Releases.

Speedy deletion nomination of SGS Consumer Testing Services[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 SGS Consumer Testing Services, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page 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 acceptable page. 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 page is not blatant advertising, Speedy delete contest button.svg. Clicking that button 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. You are welcome to edit the page to fix this problem, but please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. As well as removing promotional phrasing, it helps to add factual encyclopaedic information to the page, and add citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the page will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Zoef1234 (talk) 10:35, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of SGS Consumer Testing Services[edit]

Thank you for informing me on this matter.However, the article has already been deleted without any notion. This is a pity as I have made some major efforts to create this page, and I tried my best to meet the Wikipedia rules. In my opinion, this division of the global industry leader SGS S.A. has some major influence on the sector of certification and testing of consumer goods. The company works with many committees and national organizations to agree on safety standards for all kinds of consumer goods. Much has been achieved, but there are still many safety hazards occurring every day in every part of the world. Therefore, I do believe that it is important to mention this company and its work – at least to some extent. Please advise to which extent I should cut out OR add information. This would be vital for my contribution. Please note that other company pages from the same sector DO STILL EXIST: Bureau Veritas, Intertek or Germanischer Lloyd (here they’ve only made a note to improve the article and NOT to delete it). And I really can’t see any difference to my contribution. …to be honest, I’m quite confused now. Since I’m sure that your decision has been objective, I would highly appreciate any help on this matter from your side. Thank you. Portrino (talk) 11:17, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
