I must admit that I temporarily edited the article for a screen capture.

Next time, either use the sandbox or the preview window. All edits made to an article are saved and published immediately and anyone viewing your edit will have a negative view of the standards of Wikipedia.

Sorry. It will most certainly not happen again. Thanks for being cool about it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:05, 29 May 2013 (UTC)


I've reverted the change you made to "These Boots Are Made for Walkin." The previous information was incorrect, as the three cites demonstrate. I provided three cites because I know some editors are uncomfortable with profanity, but accuracy is one of the tenets of Wikipedia. Please contact me about anything else that concerns you. Thanks.

Thanks for letting me know. Having reviewed the sources, you are indeed correct. In my haste, I saw the language used and assumed it was vandalism. Thanks for helping make Wikipedia better! Griffinofwales (talk) Simple English Wikipedia - Come and join! 02:06, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Slalom Information[edit]

Hi there -

Noticed you have contributed to the Slalom Consulting Page. Would you be interested in receiving factual information from Slalom to contribute to the page in the future? I work on behalf of Slalom representing their communications program. Ktgeralds (talk) 18:44, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

My edits were strictly focused on reverting vandalism, which is why I visited the article. If you would like assistance in creating a neutral article on your company, may I suggest talking to the folks at WikiProject Companies? We take our neutrality and conflict of interest policies seriously, and we want to make sure that none of users or articles violate these. All members of your program editing your company's article should read and understand our FAQ for organization editors to know how to work within our policies. Let me know if I can be of more help!

Interested in adding more content to Slalom website?[edit]

Please let me know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JRYamani (talkcontribs) 22:18, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
