Description flwolf 2009-08-18 23:48:59 UTC
I have entered in Wikipedia an auto biography article on myself under the name "flwolf" twice and saved it each time. After exiting Wikipedia, I went back and searched for "flwolf". In both cases there is no article to be found, not even the name "flwolf". Can somebody please tell me why this is and/or what I'm doing wrong? It is getting very annoying!

Perhaps it's being deleted, as writing your own autobiography on Wikipedia is generally not recommended.

However, no such page exists even in the deletion archives on
