Welcome!

Hello, Steven Gazeas, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

Two more bits of advice[edit]

  • WP:Your first article is a good general guide to writing Wikipedia articles, and worth reading carefully
  • Remember that Wikipedia is a global encyclopedia - readers will not necessarily know what "AFL" or "2009 NAB National Draft" are. As a Brit, I thought initially that you were talking about American football, or maybe baseball, and it took me some research to find out that it was actually Australian Rules. Imagine a reader who knows nothing about your subject - you have to make clear to him what the context is.

Speedy deletion nomination of Steven Gazeas[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Steven Gazeas requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. 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. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), 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.
