Information.svg Hello! On Wikipedia, I spend most of my time patrolling recent changes. If, while doing so, you believe I have made a mistake, please note:
  • I am only human, I sometimes make mistakes. Edits I revert, I generally revert as they appear to be vandalism of some sort. If you believe I have made a mistake, just undo my edit, and leave me a message pointing it out to me here. Please don't leave me a template message, if I've made a bad edit, chances are it was a mistake. And, if I have reverted your edit, whether vandalism or a mistake, please don't abuse me with vandalism here. It will be quickly reverted.
  • I am not here everyday. If you leave me a message and I don't respond immediately, don't panic! I will get back to you the next time I am online and see your message.

User:The BB Edit[edit]

Please can you give me some feedback on why 'The BB Edit' was flagged for deletion? Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:56, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

1) You created a user account for an organization, and that is not allowed. 2) The user page you have created is merely a promotional article about a non-notable entity. 3) You have attempted to create a new article in the wrong place. --| Uncle Milty | talk | 17:08, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

About blocking page created by me.[edit]

The page created by me about Rakesh Metha was blocked from your side. Rakesh Metha is a well known person from Walchand College of Engineering Sangli, and he has achieved a lot during his engineering. We just want to share about him with the world. Why are you stopping us from doing so? Sakarega (talk) 14:37, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

I only pointed it out to the admins, who then took over from there. I suggest you discuss it with User:JohnCD, the administrator who deleted the page. If I was wrong with my assessment, he will be able to restore the page for you. --| Uncle Milty | talk | 17:07, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
@Sakarega: That was an attack page, and was quite rude about its subject without citing any sources for what it said. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a gossip site for you to write about your friends. I suggest you read WP:Notability (people) and WP:Biographies of living persons which includes:

"Contentious material about living persons... that is unsourced or poorly sourced – whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable – should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion."

New on Wikipedia[edit]

Hello Uncle Milty,

I am new on Wikipedia and if I have violated Wikipedia’s guidelines it was just a mistake.

What should I change or delete for my sandbox page in order to be encyclopedic? If I create a page telling people what OffersAroundME is, what it does, when the company was founded and who are the cofounders is it going to be characterized as promotional? If yes is there any way to create an encyclopedic page informing people are interested in to learn some for this company in Wikipedia?

Thank you for helping me create an encyclopedic page. OffersAroundME (talk) 10:51, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not the place to list new or not-yet notable business ventures. If you've chosen to create an article here as a way to let the world know the company exists, then that article can be nothing other than promotional. Please visit this page for more information. --| Uncle Milty | talk | 12:56, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
