The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

@Jax 0677: Thank you! I indeed value Wikipedia's intended standards and sincerely make every effort to make worthy edits and contributions and only citing trustworthy print and/or web sources. Again, thanks for the welcome. I do hope I am properly formatting my reply to your Welcome message. I look forward to impartial, seasoned expert Wiki editors to please point out to me if I accidentally create any formatting (or other) mistakes, so I fix them and avoid repeating the error.

Hello, CulturalShock. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "V-A-C Foundation".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Request reason:

It appears perhaps my IP address may be blocked for uploading files? I would like to properly upload relevant & permissible images that will improve existing articles. CulturalShock (talk) 07:45, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Without your IP - there isn't anything we can do to help. If you are still blocked, you can find your IP at http://whatismyip.com - or in the block message. SQLQuery me! 21:08, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

  • So we can help you, you will need to tell us the IP address you are using that seems to be blocked(as your account is not blocked directly). If you do not wish to do this publicly, you may use WP:UTRS to request unblock. Also, please copy and paste the message that appears when you attempt to edit. 331dot (talk) 10:36, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
I think Category:Requests for unblock might be a bit broken. It says that this unblock request was posted 48 years ago. Lavalizard101 (talk) 10:52, 17 June 2018 (UTC) Now Fixed. Thanks User:Primefac. Lavalizard101 (talk) 11:02, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
Is this still an issue? You have edited since this appeal. MER-C 19:14, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:The art organization-institution V-A-C Foundation logo circa 2018.jpegEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:The art organization-institution V-A-C Foundation logo circa 2018.jpeg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:40, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Art Prison moved to draftspaceEdit

While the article's content may be sourced, it does not appear to meet the general notability guideline. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. I've moved your draft to draftspace, and the script I used to do it has added AfC headers to it as well. signed, Rosguill talk 07:33, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

Also, you should remove the Autopatrol userbox from your user page, as it does not appear that you have that user right. signed, Rosguill talk 07:36, 11 December 2019 (UTC)
