I can't see the old versions of the page that you were editing because
I'm not an administrator on the English Wikipedia, so I can't tell
exactly what the content was, but looking at
I see that it was deleted three
times, twice for "unambiguous advertising or promotion" and once for
copyright infringement. The policies under which it was deleted are
linked on that page:
- which links
I'd strongly encourage you to read these policies before returning to
edit again. Whenever a Wikipedia editor sees a new page that doesn't
look like it belongs in an encyclopedia, or which contains text that
was taken from a copyrighted source, it is likely to get deleted
quickly. If the editor who created the page just recreates it without
addressing the issue for which it was deleted in the first place, he
gets blocked. This is normal.
I see on your talk page
) that Kinu removed
your request to unblock you, and looking at the page history I can see
An unblock request is when you explain to an administrator that your
account should no longer be blocked, because:
a) you should not have been blocked in the first place (because you
did nothing wrong: the admin made a mistake in blocking you) OR
b) you understand what you did wrong, and you promise not to do it again.
In your unblock request, you wrote what basically looks like an
advertisement for your company (
This is almost guaranteed to keep you blocked for good, because it
shows that you don't understand the purpose of Wikipedia, or at least,
how to interact properly with administrators.
I hope this has helped you understand what happened: please feel free
to ask for more information.

This is an announcement that preparation for this year's Wiki Loves
Monuments 2015 we have organised two workshops with our event partners
ORMS. Unfortunately the first event this weekend on Saturday is already
fully booked but I will make space for any Wikipedians who wish to attend
and assist in showing people how to submit photographs on commons.
The event is focused firstly on showing people how to photograph buildings
(something that is surprisingly difficult to do) as well as inform them of
Wiki Loves Monuments.
Please let me know if you are interested in helping out.
The next workshop will be held on Saturday the 19th September. I will
forward you all a link to that signup page as soon as ORMS opens up
Here is a link to the workshop page on the ORMS website:
