Hello, TeoDut, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

About Cyberkwoon: I'd advise you to look at WP:WEB for website notability criteria; if you can show that the Cyberkwoon site satisfies those criteria, you should do so on the article page. But in any case, it's pretty obvious you're here partly to promote the Cyberkwoon forum, and you should stop that: see Wikipedia:Vanity -- promoting things you like leads to bad articles with a lack of neutrality, and articles on subjects that aren't notable. But I hope you have something else to contribute and decide to stay.

Again, welcome!  Mangojuice 20:38, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Martial arts forums[edit]

Thank you MangoJuice for your message. I will get in touch with you shortly about the Cyberkwoon article. I skipped over the links you send me and while I am enthusiastic about Cyberkwoon and it might not fully adhere to the Notability rules (though I will have to look at them in more detail), I certainly do not feel that it breaks the Vanity rules.

As a matter of fact, I was looking to write about another MA forum, emptyFlower because I feel that sometimes interesting ideas arise out of all the discussion on this kind of media. While it might not be traditional media, such as book, magazine or movie, online discussions about martial arts is certainly an engine for change in that community. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TeoDut (talkcontribs)

Probably not a good idea. Generally speaking, web forums are very rarely notable. There are a gazillion of them out there, and they're mostly only important to their users. What I would suggest: talk about whatever MA forums you want on your user page User:TeoDut; you get to say pretty much what you want there, and it's not an article so nobody cares. As a former MA-ist myself, I personally don't find forums on it very useful: basically, you have no idea whether people have an actual rank, and cross-system differences make people have different perspectives. But that's just me. Anyway, if you put the info on your user page I doubt anyone would bother you about them. Mangojuice 21:17, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Hi there. I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Cyberkwoon, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Importance). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree, discuss the issues raised at Talk:Cyberkwoon. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

I think your aim to inform people about Martial arts forums is noble and reasonable, but as an encyclopedia, we have to conform to certain standards concerning the quality of information. The most important ones are notability and verifiability. WP is meant to be informative and useful, but it's not meant to be a collection of all useful information, because this is an encyclopedia.

Proposed deletion of Kwoon[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

This is rather a wiktionary entry than an encyclopedia entry. See Wikipedia is not a dictionary

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 {{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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. 小龙 (Timish) # xiǎolóng de xìnxiāng 10:12, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
