Conflict of interest policy[edit]

Information icon Hello, Dr Lindsay B Yeates. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, 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.

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. --Ronz (talk) 23:56, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Hugh Boyd M'Neile statue[edit]

Hi Dr Yeates, I went to St George's Hall before the Liverpool meetup, but there was a wedding being held there, so I couldn't get in to photograph the statue. And by the time we'd left the pub, the hall was closed. So unfortunately I wasn't able to get a picture for you. I'll try again next time I'm in Liverpool, but that might not be for a while - next meetup will be in August, and I don't think I'll be able to attend anyway, so unless anyone else is able to take the picture, it might not be till October. I'll put a note on the August meetup page. Bazonka (talk) 13:06, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your effort on my behalf. I'm most grateful. (talk) 14:03, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Your revert of my "typo" fix Fred Swift[edit]

Regarding this please see MOS:QUOTE which suggests that these typos be corrected as they are trivial (but improve readability). --LilHelpa (talk) 23:02, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
