Conflict of interest[edit]

Hello Andrewlees. If you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Andrew Lees (neurologist), 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 following the 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.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • 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.

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.--Taylornate (talk) 06:57, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Article: Andrew Lees (neurologist)[edit]

Hello, Professor Lees. By now, I imagine you realize that you have inadvertently fallen afoul of one of Wikipedia's guidelines in working on an article on yourself. I'm sorry; I know it must be quite a shock. This happens relatively regularly, and we really don't have a very good guideline on what people in your situation should do now. Obviously, you know now that you should not write about yourself on Wikipedia, but (having done so) it's understandable that you would want to repair any issues with the article that you've created.

First, as you've been notified, you really should not remove maintenance templates from the article without first ensuring that the community does not object to their removal. Helping to bring the article to a state where those templates can be removed will probably require that you work very closely with the community, which means talking to them, here and at the article's talk page. (Talk pages are edited just like articles are. There are a few conventions for answering, but these are fairly simple. We use colons to "thread" our answers beneath the notes to which we are responding, and we sign our notes by typing four tildes at the end of them. That's the basics. You can see examples of this and more at Help:Using talk pages.)

One of the main issues that I see in your biography as it currently is seems to be a lack of inline citations. It may be that all of the content in the article is covered by the existing references, but Wikipedia generally prefers inline citations. It is codified in the "conflict of interest" guideline that it is not a COI issue (here) to add citations, "especially when another editor has requested them." Since the article has been tagged as needing additional citations, these have definitely been requested. :)

Once referencing issues are cleaned up and any lingering issues with clarity (I'm not sure what these are, unless the tagger felt the language was overly technical, which can be an issue for our general readership), we can look at addressing the {{autobiography}} tag. This is slightly more complicated, and it will be easier if all other issues are addressed. Basically, we will need to be sure that the content is neutral and well balanced (including references to any critical material that may be mentioned in reliably published sources) and that content is properly sourced to verify that information has been published and is not original research. Some information can be cited to your own publications (such as your official cv), but generally material that is related to your "notability" (our word to describe the concept of encyclopedic significance) must refer to sources that are not related to you.

I will be watching your talk page and the article for a time. If you would like to discuss any of this with me, please feel free. You are also welcome to come by my talk page, which you can reach by following the "talk" link after my username. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I have restored the tags you removed, although I have subsequently removed a few of them myself with which I disagree. As you have been told, you should not remove these--particularly the ones requesting citations--until the problems they raise have been addressed. The various "citation needed" tags can be removed when you provide an inline citation for the information given. Ideally, you should use sources that are not connected to you for the information. We are not typically permitted to use involved sources for much on Wikipedia. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 10:53, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
The situation is somewhat more complicated Moonriddengirl. Mister Lees tried to reference several statements in the article in these edits, although the method by which he did so is not correct. user:OlYeller21 then added an external links tag and User:Theroadislong then removed them all and replaced them with citation needed tags. I have reverted to the original version and asked Theroadislong to explain his behaviour. Yoenit (talk) 12:45, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, Yoenit! You're right; I did not see that all. My apologies, Professor Lees. I was unaware that the contributor asking for citations had removed them himself. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:56, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
My apologies I should have inserted "failed verification" tags instead which I have now done.Theroadislong (talk) 16:22, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:A J Lees consultant neurologist.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:A J Lees consultant neurologist.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.
