Why? Why not just write an encyclopedic article based on good references? Why must it be copied from this website? Sounds promotional to me.--RadioFan (talk) 22:49, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
This IS meant to be an encyclopedic article about ANF based on references that include the most prestigious charity rating organizations in the world. ANF helps over 300,000 impoverished Nicaraguans a year. But this entry is not meant to promote ANF, but for purely informative purposes for those who seek it. If there are any promotional aspects of the page, which would they be? Chamorrom (talk) 22:58, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

An email has been sent indicating that ANF allows the use of any information from its website for this Wikipedia entry, for informative purposes. Therefore it is not a copyright issue. Chamorrom (talk) 22:58, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Copyrighted text has been removed so there is no need for permission. This subject can meet notability guidelines so deletion is not necessary, however the previous version of the article used words like "we" which indicate a conflict of interest and generally read like a promotional newsletter for the organization. Also most of the articles claims were unreferenced with 3rd party sources. If this information is added back to the article, it needs to be cited in sources not written by the organization. Anyone directly connected with the organization should avoid editing the article as well, if it's notable, someone will write about it.--RadioFan (talk) 23:36, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

If there is written permission for this content to be used, why would it be removed? Chamorrom (talk) 00:19, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

All claims made on the article can be reviewed on ANF's Annual Report, which is revised by an internal and external audit team before publication, as per required for every IRS registered 501 c 3 organization. That can be found at: http://www.aidnicaragua.org/annualreport Chamorrom (talk) 00:17, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

The organization's annual report is a primary source is not suitable as a reference. All claims of notability must be referenced in a 3rd party source not affiliated with the organization.--RadioFan (talk) 02:05, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
OTRS has been confirmed. If any content from the website is restored to the article please add {{Dual}} to the reference section on the page. This is done by filling out the following and pasting it: {{Dual|source=SOURCE WEBSITE NAME|sourcepath=URL|sourcearticle=ARTICLE NAME AT SOURCE|date=date}}. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 17:31, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
