Edit Summaries[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:
Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you. — SpikeToronto 06:47, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Dialogue with God[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Dialogue with God, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.wesayyeslord.com/Sermon%20Notes/dialogue_with_god.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dialogue with God[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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 Dialogue with God, 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. (talk) 14:34, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Waiting on God[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Waiting on God has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability of term, no reliable references

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.

Information.svg Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia. While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you. (talk) 19:42, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

I am sorry to have to give a delete opinion in the deletion debate on your Mysticism article, because it is an impressively-researched piece of work, but I am clear that it is not Wikipedia material, because of our fundamental policy of publishing WP:No original research. You should read the whole policy, but the essence of it is in the first paragraph:

"Wikipedia does not publish original research. The term "original research" refers to material—such as facts, allegations, ideas, and stories—not already published by reliable sources. It also refers to any analysis or synthesis of published material to advance a position not advanced by the sources."

It is possible that your paper might be acceptable to our sister project Wikiversity; I do not know enough about that project to be sure, but it would be worth your while to investigate. Another possibility is Wikademia (not a Wikimedia project) which explicitly welcomes original research. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 22:39, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your encouraging and constructive feedback. I really appreciate it. I do understand where you are coming from and I respect the position of Wikipedia. Please note that I am very uncomfortable with the article "Christian mysticism", for that article is based on the assumption that Christian mysticism is Christian, and the article is not accurate and not neutral the way it is now. Why is that allowed?

AFD[edit]

Regarding the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Differences between Christian mysticism and Evangelical mysticism: I believe we've both made our opinions known there, and any further dialogue will merely distract from the other opinions that have been expressed. I propose to leave the discussion be and let it take its course. As the article's author and advocate, I would suggest you do the same unless you see that there are new comments made that clearly misrepresent some fact about the article or the topic. Your proposal for a new article should probably wait until the result of the current discussion is done. If your current article is deleted, I would suggest you take up the proposal for a new article at WT:WikiProject Christianity. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:11, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
