RE WVMS article[edit]

I'm sorry for deleting some of your content, but articles on Wikipedia must be verifiable, meaning that they must have outside sources supporting the information in the article. I'm attempting to reduce the article to that content which has outside verification. If you wish to add information to the article, you should find a source to go along with it.

what do u considor verified becuase i go to the school can a teachers eboard created by a school be considered a reliable source
Published information, say, on the school website can be cited to support your claims. You can read here to learn about citing sources on Wikipedia. Ducknish (talk) 04:02, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
  • What you're adding is not encyclopedic information. No one can be expected to care about who does the announcements at a middle school. Reliable sources, those things are not: see WP:RS. Thank you. 66.168.247.159 (talk) 04:37, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

oh and people at my school care and i added citations i will add more later but for now im done

  • We're not writing an encyclopedia for the kids at your school. 66.168.247.159 (talk) 04:48, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Still on Wikipedia. I gave citations and it's for anyone were one of a select number of schools to have this so please stop deleting it do I need to give more citations

  • The information you gave isn't encyclopedic in the first place: it's chit-chat. Your edits are becoming seriously disruptive. I could do what Ducknish did to me and accuse you of vandalism, but for now I'm willing to accept that you are new to the project, and that you probably don't know what an encyclopedia is. But see the notification below: something needs to be done here. 66.168.247.159 (talk) 23:13, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

Hi Ricky, and welcome to Wikipedia. At the top of this page, I put some information and links that you will find helpful. Wikipedia can be a confusing place for a new editor, but don't be discouraged! When you have a disagreement with another editor, it is usually best to start up a conversation on the talk page of the article where the disagreement is taking place. Hopefully, here you can discuss, understand the guideline or policy reasons behind why someone might remove material you previously added, and learn. Wikipedia requires that proper sources be added for any new facts, and there are some limits to the kinds of information that we add to articles. These limits are based on community discussions that have taken place previously. Some examples might be, you wouldn't add a list of every score for every game that a middle school Table Tennis team played, for example. Ok, a little extreme, but you get the idea: avoid trivia type stuff. Sometimes what is considered ok and what isn't ok is pretty obvious, sometimes not, which is why we use the talk page, and refer to the guidelines, and of course, ask other editors. While you are adjusting to being a new editor here, feel free to drop a line of my talk page, and I will try to answer any question you have. I pop in and out during the day, so sometimes I can reply fast, other times not, but I will get to your questions as soon as I can. Dennis Brown (talk) 00:16, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
