Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Lucas González Amorosino. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:32, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Richard Kingi. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 07:48, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Francois Hougaard[edit]

Hi Stevestraw, if you take a look at Francois Hougaard, I've added some of the useful features that Wikipedia articles can have. If you can incorporate them into the articles you are creating, and it will make them even better! Happy editing! SGGH ping! 12:50, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Also, please make sure you don't copy and paste content from their player profile pages at sarugby.com, because that's against the law. :) SGGH ping! 12:51, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Quality vs. quantity[edit]

Hello! While the subjects you're writing about seem notable, simply writing a briefe sentence or two is insufficient content for an article. Rahter than creating so many "nanostubs," please review WP:YFA and concentrate on expanding what you've written. Remember: Keep the end user in mind. Thanks. --PMDrive1061 (talk) 17:07, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Samuela Bola[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Samuela Bola requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also 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), 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.

Speedy deletion of Pablo Henn[edit]

Hello Stevestraw, this is a message from an automated bot to inform you that the page you created on May 21 2010, Pablo Henn, has been marked for speedy deletion by User:Anowlin (page has mainspace links, and 4 edits). This has been done because the page seems to be about a person, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant (see CSD). If you think the tag was placed in error, please add "{{hangon}}" to the page text, and edit the talk page to explain why the page should not be deleted. If you have a question about this bot, please ask it at User talk:SDPatrolBot II. If you have a question for the user who tagged the article, see User talk:Anowlin. Thanks, - SDPatrolBot II (talk) on behalf of Anowlin (talk · contribs) 12:00, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia entries cannot be used as references[edit]

I noticed in some articles you created, such as Saula Radidi and Ropate Ratu, that you listed Wikipedia articles as references. That is not allowed, per WP:CIRCULAR, even if you code them as external links. I changed the ones I saw to "See also" entries. References are indeed required in articles about living people, but those references cannot be Wikipedia articles. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:23, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
