Hello, Engrpeters, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for helping us build a great free encyclopedia. We have five basic principles, but other than that, we advise that you be bold and edit. If you ever have any questions or need help, feel free to leave a message at the help desk, and other Wikipedia editors will be happy to assist you.
Thanks again and congratulations on becoming a Wikipedian!
P.S. New discussion threads for you will appear at the bottom of this page.
This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Olamide Adedeji, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Olamide adedeji. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.
Your contributed article, Olamide Adedeji
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.
Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Olamide Adedeji. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Olamide. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Olamide – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.
If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. STATic message me! 20:40, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Baddo finally got a Wikipedia article. Thanks for writing it bro. The article still needs a lot of work though. You shouldn't use promotional words and don't cite wordpress blogs. I will create separate articles for Olamide's studio albums in the upcoming days. Welcome to Wikipedia and if you have problems with editing or adding info, let me know. versace1608 (talk) 06:12, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Copying and pasting articles can cause problems
Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Olamide Adedeji a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Olamide. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.
In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.
An administrator will be along shortly to merge the history of the older page into the current page. No action is required on your part with respect to this article. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 01:44, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Your recent edits
Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:
- Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
- With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button ( or ) located above the edit window.
This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.
Minor errors you make
Bro, forgot to tell you. You should always add commas to singles and songs. Never italicize singles and songs. Also, always italicize albums and/or movie titles. Lastly, do not italicize musical artists. I corrected the mistakes made to the Headies article and left a message for other editors in the article's edit summary. I am leaving this message on your talk page because you make the same mistakes. One more thing, you are not using the prefer citation template when you add references to articles. When in edit mode, click on the cite tab and select "cite web" (if you are citing a webpage) from the "templates" pull down menu. Fill up the pop up box with info and click "insert". The reference will automatically be added. Take a look at this article if you can:  if you're confuse. Always remember to sign your post whenever you write on talk pages and other special pages. When in edit mode, you'll see a pencil symbol. The four Tildes needed to display your signature will automatically be added once you click the symbol. versace1608 (talk) 17:37, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Please see the message on your commons talk page, commons:user talk:Engrpeters, regarding a file you uploaded that may not qualify as a "free" image. In general, if a photo looks like it was taken by a professional, it is very likely that even if it is uploaded by the copyright owner or with the copyright owner's permission, an editor such as myself will ask that the OTRS process be followed so there is a solid legal "paper trail." When I do this, I do it to protect the copyright owner, the Wikimedia Commons, and anyone who might see the image on the Wikimedia Commons and make a copy for their own web site or other uses (these are called "downstream users"). If you are the photographer, please take it as a compliment on the quality of your work. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 23:03, 25 January 2014 (UTC)
- @davidwr: I told you sometime last week that I would leave a note on Engrpeters' talk page. You beat me to the punch. @Engrpeters: You need to try and read about OTRS before uploading images onto Wikipedia. Wikimedia takes copyright very seriously and it's not good when we (editors) try to violate copyright laws. If you see an image of Baddo you would like to upload, try contacting his management requesting that they send a declaration of consent form to Wikimedia OTRS. As editors, we must learn to do the right thing. I personally know that artists like Baddo do not care where their images are being used but Wikipedia and the Wikimedia foundation cares. Copyright infringement is a very serious issue; it should not be taken lightly. versace1608 (talk) 02:31, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
