Welcome to Wikipedia...

...but [[User:{{{2}}}]] has added the "{{prod}}" template to your user page ([[{{{1}}}]]), suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. The reason is given in the deletion notice on that page (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy).

Please note that I did not add the {{prod}} myself, nor am I expressing an opinion about [[User:{{{2}}}]]'s addition of the template.

In general, user pages are not considered as mere personal homepages or used as a part of a general webhosting service, but as way for active editors of Wikipedia to introduce themselves to other editors. If you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues on the [[User talk:{{{2}}}|user talk page]] for the person who is proposing the deletion. You may also remove the deletion notice, and the page will not be deleted for the moment, but note that it may still be sent to Miscellany for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria.

If you wish to contribute to Wikipedia but your page has already been deleted, you can ask any administrator to undelete and restore the page: if necessary, leave me a message and I'll see that your request is acted upon. To begin editing, here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Thank you, and happy editing.

This template is intended to be used on user talk pages to warn contributors that a) their User Page has been proposed for deletion using Wikipedia:Proposed deletion, but who have had no previous messages welcoming them or advising them about editing on Wikipedia; and b) that the tagging of the page was done by someone other than the person leaving this message. Please remember to sign it with your full signature (~~~~). This emerged from a discussion of just what to tell these people on Wikipedia talk:Proposed deletion. You're encouraged to modify the template as appropriate for unique circumstances.
