Questions and Answers (Q&A)

If I write a Wikipedia article about you, would you write a wikipedia article about me?

No, this would be unethical.

Quoting Wikipedia: “Wikipedia is foremost an encyclopedia, and not a vehicle for advertising or promoting organisations, companies or individuals. You may wish to review Wikipedia’s guidelines on conflict of interest and external links, as these may help you decide whether the information you want to include is appropriate for Wikipedia.

You should not create or edit articles about yourself, your family or your close friends. If you or they are notable enough, someone else will create the article.

Disambiguation pages on Wikipedia are used as a process of resolving conflicts in article titles that occur when a single term can be associated with more than one topic, making that term likely to be the natural title for more than one article. In other words, disambiguations are paths leading to different articles which could, in principle, have the same title.

A few words about biographies
Before placing a request for a biography, make certain that the person meets the notability requirements for inclusion in Wikipedia (see notability criteria). Why do you want to know about them? Why would anyone else want to know about them? Also, if you are requesting an article on a living person, please see Wikipedia’s policy on biographies of living people and neutral point of view.
