Welcome!

Hello, TGalanoy, 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, such as User:TGalanoy/Terry Galanoy, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of User:TGalanoy/Terry Galanoy[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 User:TGalanoy/Terry Galanoy, 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 an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} 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 hang-on 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. WuhWuzDat 21:25, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

November 2010[edit]

You should wait for others to write an article about subjects in which you are personally involved, instead of writing it yourself, as you did at User:TGalanoy/Terry Galanoy. This applies to articles about you, your achievements, your band, 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. WuhWuzDat 21:25, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

User space[edit]

Please be aware that user space is to make a short description of yourself, for networking purposes with other Wikipedians, for the indirect goal of improving the encyclopedia. It is not for a resume, c.v., spam, or free webspace. If you want to advertise yourself for free, there are many social networking websites for that purpose, including MySpace, LinkedIn, FaceBook, etc. Wikipedia is not a webhost; it is a IRC 501 (c) (3) corporation, and you must abide by its tax-exempt, charitable status. I am sure that you are not so poor as to have to take charity, but if you do, the Salvation Army and the Episcopal Church of the United States of America are two such religious charities that may help you with financial and spiritual needs. The United States Department of Labor also assists many persons in securing employment. If you wish to remain and to edit other articles, please feel free to stay, and welcome! However, if you continue to self-promote yourself, you will be blocked without warning. Bearian (talk) 22:35, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
