Spam in Usmt[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Usmt, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Usmt is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Usmt, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

Proposed deletion of USMT[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article USMT, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

non-notable software

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

AfD nomination of User State Migration Tool[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated User State Migration Tool, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/User State Migration Tool. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Being that you you've asked me how to write an article about USMT so it would be within Wikipedia standards, may I suggest:

  1. Do not write it as a FAQ sheet. Look at Wikipedia articles (preferably ones without tags atop them) to get the feel as to their presentation.
  2. Include information from articles covering it that have nothing to do with Microsoft and not coming from blogs. Reporting coverage from magazines, (non-self-published) web news (but not blogs), and newspapers or books would help.
  3. Write only in the third person and restrict external links to the bottom of the article. Cite footnotes.
  4. Write an introduction that summarizes the subject of the article (What is it? What does it do? What is its significance?).
  5. When the article is completed, it should not read either like a Microsoft pamphlet or a news release.
  6. Restrict "see also" to a separate section in the bottom. "See also" should contain only wikilinks; "External links" may contain a few links that are not used for references. Once you insert footnotes, you'll need to add a "References" section consisting of the template {{reflist}}.

I hope this helps. As the article stands now, it seems ready for Microsoft publication, but it's not beyond help or hope. Best of luck! B.Wind (talk) 03:40, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

September 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to User State Migration Tool. While objective prose about beliefs, organisations, people, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. You have mentioned in various places that the GUI wrapper at is one you've designed. Since this is not a free product, it can be seen as a form of advertising, and per WP:ADV, you should refrain from linking to this site. Thank you. GoneIn60 (talk) 08:45, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your heads up on this matter. I did not originally setup the links but as they pointed to a wrong page I updated them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:39, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
