First of all...[edit]

Don't write about yourself. Autobiographical articles (or "vanity pages") present an inherent conflict of interest, as it is nearly impossible to write neutrally about yourself. If an article appears to have been written for self-promotional purposes, especially if the subject fails to meet notability standards, it will be deleted.

Users are encouraged to contribute about organizations they belong to: non-profits, sports teams, etc. — even businesses, provided the contributions remain informative, not promotional.

Search for the subject[edit]

Use the search box in the left-hand column to see if your subject already exists on Pensapedia. Please make sure to use the correct spelling and capitalization (e.g. "John Doe," not "John doe" or "john doe"). All articles must adhere to our naming conventions.

If no article exists by that name, you can click the red link to create the new article.
