Generally it has to be added by a neutral party (somebody without a
conflict of inerest). There are a lot of websites in the world, and
there has to be some way for wikipedia to sort out which are notable
websites, and which are some bored person decided to put up. If your
website is truly the great portal it claims to be, somebody else will
eventually add it.
Also, please note this is the wikinews mailing list, for a website
called wikinews, which is separate from wikipedia. You will probably
get a better response at info-en(a)wikimedia.org or if you ask the nice
people who left the Conflict of interest message on your talk page for
P.S. Don't take this the wrong way, but your website does not look
like the largest Sri Lanka portal. You don't even have an email with
your websites domain. I can't seem to find these high quality images
you talk about (unless your talking about high quality images of other
websites, and even thoose aren't that great quality). Your website is
of the style that was popular ten years ago (look around at how many
websites use flashing gif animations and a light on dark colour scheme
now a days). There are links and images that are 404 errors. If I was
looking for a portal for Sri Lanka, I would go either
(which while isn't great, is better) or
for a portal, and
for high quality

I have been in the Wikinews mailing list for for many years now.
We have made & are hosting the largest web portal on Sri Lanka. It is a
ever growing Portal & would take many years to complete. It is a sort of a
Wikipedia on Sri Lanka but pictorially described. It is an educational
Portal and the 1st of it's kind in Sri Lanka or in any region covering a
myriad of subjects with images.
Any student could get details of Sri Lanka free of charge. It is with very
hi quality images which Wikipedia does not have.
When I added the name once it said wikipedia does not solicit web sites but
I found that there were many. This is not a PERSONAL website and as anyone
could see - it is an educational Portal.
It appears you got into another language:
Wikipedia doesn't solicit webpages. It ads pages if they are deemed
important enough by people not associated with the websites
Please let me know how we could add the name 'Sri Lanka Almanac Vidyuth
Koshaya' (vidyuth koshaya = electronic encylopedia in Sinhala language).
Please help Sri Lanka develop this massive site by linking Wikipedia and
giving details about it. We have linked Wikipedia to SLAVK.
Awaiting a reply at your earliest.
Thanking & regards from
