Speedy deletion nomination of ARCE Cal PolyEdit

 

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 ARCE Cal Poly requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from http://arce.calpoly.edu/about. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Managing a conflict of interestEdit

  Hello, ARCECalPoly. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution which forms all or part of work for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. KarlPoppery (talk) 03:25, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on ARCE Cal Poly, 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, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

  Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you have created yourself.

This will allow you to make your case on the talk page. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. KarlPoppery (talk) 03:38, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Copyright and conflict of interestEdit

  Thank you for your interest in creating an article for ARCE Cal Poly on Wikipedia. There are multiple problems with your submission. You cannot post copyrighted material on Wikipedia even if you are the copyright holder. In short, a copyright owner cannot offer Wikipedia a one-time license for use. Rather, the copyright to the material has to be released – permanently and irrevocably – into the public domain or under a free copyright license that is compatible with Wikipedia's licenses. This is because Wikipedia aims to be freely distributable and copyable by anyone, so all content must be licensed for that purpose. You can learn more about this policy at Wikipedia:Copyrights.

The second problem is conflict of interest. Writing an article about your own organization or that of a client is strongly discouraged, as it is difficult to maintain the required neutral point of view.

If you'd like to use the copyrighted content in an article, you can follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission on how to obtain the proper licensing. If you are the copyright holder, refer to Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for how to grant us permission to use your content. Alternatively, you could write a new article that does not closely paraphrase the material available online. However you would then still have to abide by the conflict of interest guideline. In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

I'm sorry this message could not be more favourable. If you have any questions, you can leave a message on my talk page. Thank you. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 04:10, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

BlockedEdit

 

There have been two problems identified with this account: the account has been used for advertising or promotion, which is contrary to the purpose of Wikipedia; and your username indicates that the account represents a business or other organisation or group, which is also against policy, as an account must be for just one person. Because of those problems, the account has been blocked indefinitely from editing.

If you intend to make useful contributions about some topic other than your business or organisation, you may request an unblock. To do so, post the text {{unblock-spamun|Your proposed new username|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page. Replace the text "Your proposed new username" with a new username you are willing to use. See Special:CentralAuth to search for available usernames. Your new username will need to meet our username policy. Replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason to be unblocked. In this reason, you must:

  • Convince us that you understand the reason for your block and that you will not repeat the kind of edits for which you were blocked.
  • Describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked.
If you believe this block was made in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Username implies shared use, as well as being promotional. User has made promotional edits, introducing copyrighted text. DES (talk) 04:30, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

{{unblock-spamun|callmeAl110B| I understand that I was blocked because the article I wrote was copied from another website, and that it was advertising instead of informing. This was clearly wrong, and in my future articles I will not copy other's materials, and keep it strictly informative and without bias or conflict of interest. The contributions I make will be purely to educate the public.}}

Could you describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked? PhilKnight (talk) 22:43, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

@PhilKnight: In general, I would like to make contributions writing articles about educational opportunities and different unique programs in California. I would first like to write another article about the architectural engineering program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo because it is a little known program that I think the public should know about, and that it should come up when it is being "googled". I am not affiliated with the program or being paid to advertise it, I just want to inform about it in an unbiased fashion, and then possibly write more articles relating to other educational opportunities. I regret that my first attempt to write an article about this was ill-advised and had disregard for the potential consequences. I have really learned my lesson going through all this and I am determined to write a new article that makes valuable contributions. CallmeAl110B (talk) 01:29, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Please note that Wikipedia is not for merely providing information; this is an encyclopedia, where article subjects must be shown with independent reliable sources with significant coverage to meet Wikipedia's special definition of notability. Wikipedia has no interest in enhancing search results; if you just want to spread the word about academic programs, you should use social media. I see that you copied the article from the program's website; please indicate that you understand WP:COPYVIO. I am curious as to how you came to know of this program if you are not affiliated with it. 331dot (talk) 08:47, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
