Why can't I edit some particular pages?
Some pages that have been vandalized repeatedly are semi-protected, meaning that editing by new or unregistered users is prohibited through technical measures. If you have an account that is four days old and has made at least 10 edits, then you can bypass semi-protection and edit any semi-protected page. Some pages, such as highly visible templates, are fully-protected, meaning that only administrators can edit them. If this is not the case, you may have been blocked or your IP address caught up in a range block.
Where can I experiment with editing Wikipedia?
How do I create an article?
See how to create your first article, then use the Article Wizard to create one, and add references to the article as explained below.
How do I create citations?
  1. Do a search on Google or your preferred search engine for the subject of the Wikipedia article that you want to create a citation for.
  2. Find a website that supports the claim you are trying to find a citation for.
  3. In a new tab/window, go to the citation generator, click on the 'An arbitrary website' bubble, and fill out as many fields as you can about the website you just found.
  4. Click the 'Get reference wiki text' button.
  5. Highlight, and then copy (Ctrl+C or Apple+C), the resulting text (it will be something like <ref> {{cite web | .... }}</ref>, copy the whole thing).
  6. In the Wikipedia article, after the claim you found a citation for, paste (Ctrl+V or Apple+V) the text you copied.
  7. If the article does not have a References or Notes section (or the like), add this to the bottom of the page, but above the External Links section and the categories:
==References==
{{Reflist}}
What is a WikiProject, and how do I join one?

Speedy deletion nomination of Draft:Hoda Abdel Nasser

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 Draft:Hoda Abdel Nasser 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 https://www.hindustantimes.com/world/nasser-s-daughter-house-raided/story-wfZGYFF8uLf7F0dG50C8nM.html, https://www.egypttoday.com/Article/4/39859/Release-of-1st-Arabic-version-of-Gamal-Abdel-Nasser-biography, and https://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Egypts-presidential-offspring-patch-up-cat-fight-150202. 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 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. -- Asartea Talk | Contribs 07:01, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Justiyaya. I noticed that in this edit to Draft:Hoda Abdel Nasser, you removed content without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, the removed content has been restored. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Justiyaya (talk) 09:35, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Snyk

Thanks for the work you do cleaning up pages that shouldn't be here. Saying this, I'm not sure what you nominated Snyk not just for deletion but speedy deletion. How exactly does it satisfy WP:G11? It's exclusively promotional?? Which part of it isn't written in a neutral tone? MaskedSinger (talk) 09:45, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

MaskedSinger It's purely based on funding and announcement, nor it seems notable. Behind the moors (talk) 16:07, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
You don't think a billion dollar company is notable? MaskedSinger (talk) 15:39, 4 December 2021 (UTC)
Wikipedia doesn't work like that. Check this afd [1] even, people are discussing that this billionaire is notable or not. Luckily, she is notable. Behind the moors (talk) 09:55, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

BLPPROD

Hi, I'm guessing that this was a mis-click in Twinkle? It isn't a biography, and there are references, so BLPPROD isn't applicable. I draftified it again because it has serious issues, which had been ignored by the editor who moved it into mainspace without a review. So I'm not debating the fact that you thought it was not good enough, just the actual tag you placed. --bonadea contributions talk 15:45, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

By mistakenly I chose the wrong option. Behind the moors (talk) 17:11, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

Could you explain why the article Nikhil Prasad doesn’t meet the WP:GNG

Hi there, My recent article Nikhil Prasad was nominated by you as it's not meet's GNG. Did you check the additional notability for people? SEE WP:CREATIVE. As per this, he is falling under notability, also what's lacking for WP:GNG. Awaiting your response. Thank you. Happy editing. Onmyway22 talk 18:08, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

From nowhere it is passing WP:CREATIVE and it fails GNG due to in-depth, independent coverage related to him. It's mainly about company. Behind the moors (talk) 18:42, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
@Behind the moors: So do you think a person who meets additional criteria isn't notable? Also the company is the first ever digital platform in Kerala and established as the top digital company in the state. The company page and even the series' page is as notable as being on Wikipedia and it's here. So you it seems you didn't WP:BEFORE. I strongly recommend it to you before you nominate articles for discussion. There are additional criteria other than GNG. Happy editing Onmyway22 talk 02:10, 15 December 2021 (UTC)
These are not Wikipedia criteria and stop debating with me here. Let everyone and admin decide this now. Behind the moors (talk) 08:11, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
