Amazing how one thing leads to another -- setting up an area to keep track of my edits.

Connected Contributor disclosure and redaction
Concerning recent developments concerning Wikipedia:Paid editing (policy).
I recently declared a Template:Connected contributor involving paid editing for a firm (10 West Studios). The Director (Harold Cronk) appreciated my freely contributed film article Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy. I was contacted about additional articles. I did accept payment for an article, created via WP:AfC, Jerusalem Countdown (film). (It appears that the talk page with my Cc declaration was not moved with the article.)
As a result of budget issues, I was not compensated for several finished draft articles and the development concerning Wikipedia:Paid editing (policy) forbids me from accepting payment for services. The new paid editing policy severs my only "Connection" with the subject. (As per WP:NOPAY, I have no external nor financial relationship with the subject.)
I have no expectation of being compensated for several finished articles concerning The Michigan Film Incentive, the resulting creation of 10 West Studios, and the biography WP:BLP about the director. After letting the dust settle for two months, with no expectation of being compensated, I am voluntarily contributing several works under the Creative Commons agreement and in "advancing the aims of Wikipedia", rather than deleting these works.
- A clean up of Film industry in Michigan concerning the State of Michigan's experiment with Film Incentives.
- 10 West Studios
- Harold Cronk
I will continue to respect the rules concerning paid editing, I will not be accepting commissioned work as per Wikipedia:Paid editing (policy)
Beyond having advanced content knowledge, I am no longer connected with 10 West Studios, affiliates and associated topics. I will continue my neutral writings as a volunteer.
I am a freelance writer, I write when I want and about the topics that interest me. Generally, I write about the Entertainment Industry: artists, musicians, composers, producers, directors etc. In almost every case, I do not personally know these creative individuals and I may or may not contact these subjects for clarification(s).
In most cases I write about a topic because:
- I enjoy the work, or contribution of the creative individual.
- They have interesting story concerning their rise to notability, either in old media, new media or both.
- One of these creative personalities experiences a milestone, film/album, or other career advancement.
- The subject is an integral and notable part of a story that is likely to become a Wikipedia Book.
Other personal interests and areas of expertise:
- Information Systems
- Labor Statistics and Global labor arbitrage
- Postsecondary Education
- Fiat currency and monetary policy
- International trade agreements and tariffs
NPOV on two articles
Hello, I recently tagged a few articles that you contributed for NPOV. Just to expand on why I placed the tags, I wanted to mention there are only a few places in each that seemed, to me at least, to be outside the guidelines of NPOV. Thanks JanetWand (talk) 21:37, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
