Dear fellow Wikipedian,

You have been invited to a meetup and edit-a-thon at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 11 am to 6 pm! This event is in collaboration with MOCA and the arts collective East of Borneo and aims to improve coverage of LA art since the 1980s. (Even if contemporary art isn't your thing, you're welcome to join too!) Please RSVP here if you're interested.

I hope to see you there! User:Calliopejen1 (talk)

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

The LA Wikipedia community has two events in this second half of March -- please consider attending!

First, there is a memorial edit-a-thon in honor of the prolific LA Wikipedian Adrianne Wadewitz, which is being held downtown on March 18 (tomorrow!) from noon to 8pm as a part of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies' annual conference. Please drop by to contribute your own work or teach other users how to write for Wikipedia.

Second, there will be an event at the Redondo Beach Public Library (following up on last month's session), in collaboration with the Redondo Beach Historical Society. Please join us from 10am to noon on Saturday, March 28 at the main branch of the Redondo Beach Public Library!

Disambiguation link notification for March 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited You Gotta Love the Life, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Oscar Hammerstein (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 13:44, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Abandoned drafts[edit]

Information iconHello, 009o9, I saw that you made a draft for a new article at User:009o9/Computer-related occupations. According to WP:STALEDRAFT, "Short term hosting of potentially valid articles and other reasonable content under development or in active use is usually acceptable (the template {{userspace draft}} can be added to the top of the page to identify these)." But in this case, you haven't edited your draft for a long time. If you are done, please donate it by moving User:009o9/Computer-related occupations to a Wikipedia:WikiProject Abandoned Drafts subpage (a participant may help). If you are not done, please finish it and move it. If you abandoned it, you may request it for deletion by putting "{{db-u1}}" or donating it. Thank you. SD0001 (talk) 07:07, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Similarly, you have 4 other drafts (User:009o9/Cooper Smith Advertising, User:009o9/Lindsey Stirling discography, User:009o9/Never Gonna Be the Same Again and User:009o9/Topher Straus) listed at Category:Stale Userspace drafts that were last edited more than one year ago. Please consider donating them to the WikiProject or improving them yourself. SD0001 (talk) 07:07, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, 009o9. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Draft:Draft Mitchell Kriegman, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies. Note that Wikipedia's terms of use require disclosure of your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. CookieMonster755 (talk) 00:45, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

@User:CookieMonster755 The rules you've provided here apply to article space and have been clarified by the Foundation in June of 2014 Terms_of_use#paid-contrib-disclosure. Wikipedia does not have additional policies at Alternative_paid_contribution_disclosure_policies.
Possible COI is exactly why I submitted to AfD instead of moving the article myself. I respect the rules and input from other writers. Kriegman is disclosed on my user page and in the note I left in the top of the draft. I also provide a Template:Paid article on my paid works, but in this case, the talk page should not travel with the draft, because there is an existing article and that talk page should sustain. While I'm on the subject, I will add the additional declaration to the existing Talk:Mitchell_Kriegman talk page. Thanks, resubmitting -- 009o9 (talk) 03:57, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
