Conflict of interest Re: Thrive+[edit]

Information icon Hello, Brookspowell629. 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 Thrive+, 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.
  • 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. 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.--Lemnaminor (talk) 10:21, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

The WP:Plain and simple conflict of interest guide might be helpful as well. --Lemnaminor (talk) 16:22, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Seriously[edit]

[edit]

Hi, Brookspowell629! It seems extremely likely that you are in some way connected with Gary Thomas (author), and that you very possibly receive financial reward of some kind for editing his article here. If so, please read our guidelines on conflict of interest editing with great care, and most particularly where they read:

Paid advocates are very strongly discouraged from direct article editing, and should instead propose changes on the talk page of the article in question. Wikimedia's Terms of Use state that "you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation".

There's more about paid editing in the FAQ on disclosure of paid contributions. You are of course welcome to suggest improvements to the article on the talk page, Talk:Gary Thomas (author). You can use {{Request edit}} to attract the attention of other editors, who will then decide whether or not the proposed edit should be made. Of course, the same considerations also apply to any other article that you edit for financial reward. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 01:32, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
