Your username suggests a conflict of interest[edit]

Information.svg If you have a close connection to some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest. In keeping with Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy, edits where there is a conflict of interest, or where such a conflict might reasonably be inferred from the tone of the edit and the proximity of the editor to the subject, are strongly discouraged. If you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when:

  1. editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with;
  2. participating in deletion discussions about articles related to your organization or its competitors;
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam); and,
  4. avoid breaching relevant 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 conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for businesses. For more details about what, exactly, constitutes a conflict of interest, please see our conflict of interest guidelines. Thank you. EdJohnston (talk) 19:38, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Request reason:

I am new to Wikipedia, and now more aware of policies. Firstly, I would like to request a change in username to jsperry. Bio-IT World is a publisher for the life sciences, and it was my intention to provide links to the site as a relevant reference for those seaking further information on the tipics the pub covers. I now see that this is considered External Link spamming and I will cease this practice. I understand that edits submitted on 10/30/2008 are link spamming. Articles I submitted today reference specific companies conducting advances in technology, e.g. Applied Biosystems advances in genome-wide association studies. Would providing this type of link be acceptable? Please advise and accept my sincere apologies for my previous offences.

Decline reason:

No, users are prohibited from adding links to their sites at all. MaxSem(Han shot first!) 17:18, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

Account blocked because of promotional use[edit]

Stop x nuvola.svg
This account has been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia, because it has been identified as an account used for promotion of a company or group, with a username that implies that this has been done by that company or group. See Wikipedia:Business' FAQ and Wikipedia:Conflict of interest.

This kind of activity is considered spamming and is forbidden by Wikipedia policies. In addition, the use of a username like yours violates our username policy.

You may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below or emailing the administrator who blocked you.

Your reason should include your response to this issue and a new username you wish to adopt that does not violate our username policy (specifically, understand that accounts are for individuals, not companies or groups, and that your username should reflect this). Usernames that have already been taken are listed here. Gogo Dodo (talk) 16:10, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
