Speedy deletion nomination of Georgia's 6th congressional district special election, 1999Edit

 

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 Georgia's 6th congressional district special election, 1999 requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 deleted 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Non-Dropframe talk 05:28, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

June 2018Edit

  Hello. Your recent edit to Downers Grove, Illinois appears to have added the name of a non-notable entity to a list that normally includes only notable entries. In general, a person, organization or product added to a list should have a pre-existing article before being added to most lists. If you wish to create such an article, please first confirm that the subject qualifies for a separate, stand-alone article according to Wikipedia's notability guideline. Thank you.

August 2018Edit

  Hello, I'm MutchyMan112. An edit that you recently made to Ohio's 12th congressional district special election, 2018 seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! MutchyMan112 (talk) 21:11, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Shire of Pine RiversEdit

Just to explain that I restored the federal divisions in the infobox, but added "(as at 2008)". I think removing the divisions takes information away from the reader (which is not a good thing) but equally I could understand the concern that someone might think that the shire is currently within those electorates, so I hope you like my compromise solution.

IP AddressEdit

 
This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

ELPEN62 (block logactive blocksglobal blockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


Request reason:

Caught by a colocation web host block but this host or IP is not a web host. My IP address is 10.192.0.94 Place any further information here. I have been constantly on and off for about a year, and how I am seemingly blocked permanently

Decline reason:

You seem to be editing OK now. If you're using a VPN, you should disable it. If you're editing from work, you should maybe contact your network administrator and find out why your traffic is being routed to ServersAustralia. If you continue having problems, and you can't figure out how to fix it, I can give you IP block exemption. If I don't see your unblock request, use {{ping|NinjaRobotPirate}} to alert me. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 06:48, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

I don't think that is actually your IP address; please give the exact message that appears when you attempt to edit. 331dot (talk) 23:49, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Editing from 221.121.128.0/19 has been blocked (disabled) by NinjaRobotPirate for the following reason(s):


The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because it is believed to be a web host provider or colocation provider. To prevent abuse, web hosts and colocation providers may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. You will not be able to edit Wikipedia using a web host or colocation provider. Since the web host acts like a proxy, because it hides your IP address, it has been blocked. To prevent abuse, these IPs may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. If you do not have any other way to edit Wikipedia, you will need to request an IP block exemption. If you do not believe you are using a web host, you may appeal this block by adding the following text on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Caught by a colocation web host block but this host or IP is not a web host. My IP address is _______. Place any further information here. ELPEN62 (talk) 01:07, 28 April 2019 (UTC)}}. You must fill in the blank with your IP address for this block to be investigated. Your IP address can be determined using whatismyip.com. Alternatively, if you wish to keep your IP address private you can use the unblock ticket request system. If you are using a Wikipedia account you will need to request an IP block exemption by either using the unblock template or by submitting an appealing using the unblock ticket request system.
