Can you please contact me - thank you. J9 83 (talk) 00:56, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Janine, as the editor who reverted the original addition of the text to the article (made by an anonymous IP), the reason I gave then was on copyright grounds, since the text was directly lifted from Torrens University's website.
However there are other basic Wikipedia (WP) principles at stake here. While there is no need to "ask for editing access" (after all anyone can, and indeed is freely encouraged to, become an editor) there is a WP policy of no paid advocacy according to which you would be considered to have a conflict of interest in editing this article. WP is also not to be used for promotion, and the copy you provided above contains what, according to the WP's manual of style, might be considered "peacock terms", the use of which is also strongly discouraged.

Hi Bahudhara[edit]

Hi Bahudhara, Can you please clarify if you are the owner of this page? Also, do all changes go though you to approve before shooing online?

Hi J9 83, no-one owns articles on Wikipedia - I just happened to be the first editor to respond. as the article is on my watchlist. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 04:21, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
