Welcome!

Welcome to Wikipedia, Shlomif! My name is Ryan, aka Acetic Acid. I noticed that you were new and haven't received any messages yet. I just wanted to see how you were doing. Wikipedia can be a little intimidating at first, since it uses different formatting than other sites that use HTML and CSS. In the long run, though, you'll find that the WikiSyntax is a lot easier and faster than those other ways. Here are a few links to get you started:

There are a lot of policies and guides to read, but I highly recommend reading over those first. If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. Please be sure to sign your name on Talk Pages using four tildes (~~~~) to produce your name and the current date, along with a link to your user page. This way, others know when you left a message and how to find you. It's easier than having to type out your name, right? :)

I hope you enjoy contributing to Wikipedia. We can use all the help we can get! Have a nice day. Sincerely, Ryan. 12:38, August 2, 2005 (UTC)

Nuvola apps personal.png

You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your business, your publications, your website, your relatives, and any other possible conflict of interest.

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. Eggishorn 18:30, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Haifa Linux Club[edit]

Hi, the Haifux page on wikipedia was deleted due to notability. If you could help editing the page to make it clear why Haifux is notable based on external sources, they will allow it to return. The page is now temporarily at User:Alon/Haifa_Linux_Club. Please do not restore it until further editing is done. --epsalon (talk) 19:25, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

WPClipart[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article WPClipart, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of WPClipart.

AfD nomination of Hebrew Programming Language[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

An editor has nominated Hebrew Programming Language, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hebrew Programming Language and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 11:14, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Freecell Solver[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Freecell Solver requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Proposed deletion of Freecell Solver[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Freecell Solver has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unremarkable software product, lacks 3rd party references demonstrating notability

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. RadioFan (talk) 12:12, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

File:User-Shlomif-next-to-computer.jpg[edit]

The file File:User-Shlomif-next-to-computer.jpg has two problems. First the copyright is owned by your friend who took the picutre and modded it in gimp. Your friend has not provided evidence that they release it. Second to be on Wikipedia it needs a free license such as CC-BY-SA-3.0. So please ask your friend to log on and change that license, and add their tag and permission. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 13:17, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Hi! The editing of the photo was done under my supervision and on my computer, and my friend is a nice guy, who is also into Linux and FOSS and I'm sure the copyright is still mine. I don't mind licensing this particular copy under the CC-by-sa. I'll re-upload it to clarify it. I should also note that the primary reason I uploaded this photo was to put on my user-page on the wikipedia because I couldn't find a way to display an external image. I'll appreciate it if you can enlighten me about it Shlomif (talk) 17:07, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

January 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Malik Shabazz. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Post-Zionism, because it seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 11:33, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

User:Shlomif/Neo-Tech, a page you substantially contributed to, has been nominated for deletion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/User:Shlomif/Neo-Tech and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

Speedy deletion nomination of Olamot Con[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Olamot Con, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

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.

October 2014[edit]

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you make personal attacks on other people again, as you did at User talk:FreeRangeFrog, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. --Bongwarrior (talk) 08:50, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Your edit is so far across the line that I need binoculars to see you in the distance. I have blocked your account for personal attacks. If you want to appeal you can request unblock using the template {{unblock|your reason here}}. Spartaz Humbug! 11:10, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Request reason:

Hi Spartaz! I apologise for the strong language on the edit on FreeRangeFrog, and promise I'll refrain from it in the future. A previous comment by your colleague just warned me about it. The comment came out of many years of frustration of dealing with overzealous deletionists on the English wikipedia, and the fact I had intentions of improving the page in the short future once the speedy deletion tag and scary comment at the top of the page was removed. As you can tell by my editing history, I've been making a lot of contributions to the wikipedia in the past. Sorry again.

P.S: also see http://shlomif.wikia.com/wiki/Encourage_criticism_and_try_to_get_offended . Shlomif (talk) 18:55, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Your block expires in around 24 hours, and in all honesty, given the nature of your outburst, I think you need the break from editing. PhilKnight (talk) 11:13, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Proposed deletion of Shlomi Loubaton[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Shlomi Loubaton has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This BLP has been unsourced for seven years. It's too old to qualify for WP:BLPPROD, but I think it's reasonable to assume that if any sources were available, they would have been added by now. No relevant Google hits other than Wikipedia mirrors, his own website and a couple of networking sites (although as an Israeli, it's possible he gets more coverage in Hebrew and Arabic sites which Google isn't noticing).

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.  Mogism (talk) 19:19, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
