I'm not sure why am I blocked

I want to edit some wiki page, I am not a spammer (I guess all spammers say that but honestly I never did something wrong) Can someone help me and explain to me what is going on? I used to edit in wikipedia for a while, so you'd think I'll know what to do and I try it now.

I'm trying to apply to a rapid grant and it says it's spam

Hi. I'm working on a draft to apply to a rapid grant. I clicked on "publish page" but it says it's spam. I don't know what to do. Thanks! — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mgonzalezmillan (talk) 02:38, 20 mai 2017 (UTC)

Creating a new page

Hello, I have Just created the page "2017 Super 8s" but for some reason, it isn't showing up on Wikipedia search. I have created it and saved it but unsure as to why it isn't showing. Can you help please. Thank you. L1amw90 (talk) 11:02, 26 May 2017 (UTC) L1amw90 (talk) 11:02, 26 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. A Wikipedia-page is normally only searchable on that wiki, not from here. Is it this page that you are looking for? You have to ask on that wiki if there is any problem since it's nothing we can help you from here. Here we can only help you with issues related to this wiki. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:09, 26 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
User:L1amw90, just FYI new articles on the English Wikipedia do not get index by external search providers for 30 days, or until the article is patrolled by page patrollers. — xaosflux Talk 03:37, 29 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Spambot".

For some reason the abuse filter thinks that I'm a spambot, I wanted to leave a message on the Stewards' noticeboard but for some reason get seen as "advertisement". -2405:4800:1484:93BC:2C52:2D10:79E6:22F7 06:48, 19 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MarcoAurelio: it is your filter. Re the statement, and your xwiki abuse block, you would be best to talk to the blocking steward, Ruslik0.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:23, 19 August 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor spelling fix

In this bullet point in the header template:

Requests for CentralNotice banners and campaings

the word campaigns is misspelled. Could it be corrected? Thanks, I JethroBT (talk) 18:44, 8 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
