Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged. If you create such an article, it might be listed on articles for deletion. Deletion is not certain, but many feel strongly that you should not start articles about yourself. This is because independent creation encourages independent validation of both significance and verifiability. All edits to articles must conform to Wikipedia:No original research, Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, and Wikipedia:Verifiability.

If you are not "notable" under Wikipedia guidelines, creating an article about yourself may violate the policy that Wikipedia is not a personal webspace provider and would thus qualify for speedy deletion. If your achievements, etc., are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later. (See Wikipedia:Wikipedians with articles.) Thank you. (talk) 00:05, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Wikipedia

I would like to request that the block for spam / advertising / sockpuppeteering be lifted against Sarina Russo.

A previous person uploaded information on Sarina Russo early in 2010 and obviously did the wrong thing in terms of sockpuppeteering.

As a leading female business identity in Australia I believe users of Wikipedia would benefit from factual background on her and her business.

Please see my suggested entry below - I hope it meets with your satisfaction and I would be happy to take your advice if any changes need to be made

regards Brenden Brien
