Hello, Yakuzaguy187, 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 Joe silva, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may not be retained.

Proposed deletion of Joe silva[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Joe silva has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Moved to userspace[edit]

Hey, I moved the article into your userspace at User:Yakuzaguy187/Joe Silva. The problem is that the prior AfD established that his work with UFC wasn't enough to pass notability guidelines and you'll have to show that he's received enough coverage to merit an entry on Wikipedia. I'm sure that you could probably get someone from one of the appropriate Wikiprojects to help you look for sources.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions to the page User:Yakuzaguy187/Joe Silva, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition was deleted under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text—which means allowing other people to modify it—then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later, and the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License." You may also e-mail or mail the Foundation to release the content. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for more.

While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with our copyright policy. Wikipedia takes copyright concerns very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here. You can also leave a message on my talk page. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:45, 11 December 2013 (UTC)
