Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, Kittymccaffery. 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 Gary Wales (actor), you may have a conflict of interest.

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.
  • 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.
* Note that I have moved the page from GaryWales to a more appropriate title at Gary Wales (actor). I can see why you couldn't use the title Gary Wales, as he's a soccer player. At least he's also Scottish! ;-) .

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Is there a way someone can email me at kittymccaffery@yahoo.com so we can fix these issues? TY

I'll just go ahead and write about it here. It just seems more transparent that way. Wikipedians like transparency.
Wikipedia wants all information that's relevant for people who have articles, even information that might be interpreted as negative. You, on the other hand, have a motivation, admitted or not, to keep that potentially negative information out of the articles you write for clients. That's where your conflict of interest comes in. If you understand about how Wikipedia works, and a surprising number of people don't, you would realize that there's simply no way to guarantee that reliably sourced, negative information will appear, and stay, in the articles you help write, anyways. Heck, there's no way to guarantee that unsourced, negative information will appear, but we try our best to take such information down, particularly of living people. If this information appears, for any length of time, are you going to get the blame for it, even if you're not at fault? Maybe, if somebody doesn't realize how Wikipedia works.
Unfortunately, the best way to go about this is to not write for clients, or other people you are close to personally, or professionally, at all. So, you probably shouldn't, for example, write about your family, either.
The second best way to deal with it is actually the way you dealt with it. Dealing with it transparently, making it very clear that you are being paid as part of your job to do this. In fact, since you are a "paid editor" you are now required to do this, per the terms of use. Traditionally, however, we looks for such disclosures on the articles talk page, but the edit summary should suffice.
If you want more information, you can look here, or look at a more simplistic version here.I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 01:47, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Ways to improve Gary Wales (actor) pt. 2[edit]

Hi, I'm 220 of Borg. Kittymccaffery, thanks for creating Gary Wales (actor)!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Your edit summary: "created page for my client Gary Alexander Wales with his help" Raises some concerns about Wales' notability, but at least you are being open about it. :-) (The connection that is. :-\ )

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Gary Wales (actor) has been reverted.
Your edit here to Gary Wales (actor) was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://www.twitter.com/OfficialGwales) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a blog, forum, free web hosting service, fansite, or similar site (see 'Links to avoid', #11), then please check the information on the external site thoroughly. Note that such sites should probably not be linked to if they contain information that is in violation of the creator's copyright (see Linking to copyrighted works), or they are not written by a recognised, reliable source. Linking to sites that you are involved with is also strongly discouraged (see conflict of interest).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.

Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism[edit]

You have been tagged as a vandal. Please discuss. Bearian (talk) 20:43, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

That's actually misleading: you haven't been "tagged as a vandal." I believe yours is a promotion-only account and stated as much as the link above, but my request is in process of being turned down, because this is a "noticeboard is for obvious vandals and spammers only." I was told to take my concerns elsewhere, to a different noticeboard, which I don't intend to do. Anyway, I'm sure this is all a bit confusing to you, but you have not been "tagged as a vandal" in any official sense. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 20:51, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks to everyone who has helped with these. Yes, this has all been confusing. I am just given information either directly by celebs, their agents, or managers and I update their pages accordingly. I always try to provide as much proof as possible. I just recently realized I cannot write personal opinions or what the celebs "want" their wiki to say. I realize everything has to be strictly factual with proof and that is what I plan to provide on the accounts I have been asked to update. Thank you.

KittyMcCaffery (talk)

Policy requires that you be open about this kind of editing, and what you've done easily satisfies that requirement. Please continue to be careful not to add anything that's in an independent reliable source. You have a narrow path to tread, but it looks like you know how to follow it; please be careful to continue following it properly. Nyttend (talk) 00:56, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Gary Wales[edit]

Hi. i noticed a request on game of thrones page asking if anyone knew anything about Gary Wales. It would appear that the article you started incorrectly implies he had a starring part in the series, and this has not been corrected despite the problem being pointed out. I would suggest that if you are starting a new article you try to vet it first so that the facts are correct, even if they arent terribly impressive or substantial. If there isnt enough to sound interesting to the general public, then maybe it really isnt enough to justify having a wiki article. Having a striking error is more likely to motivate people here to do something about it than to give it a head start. If you are writing about someone few have ever heard of, then perhaps there is no hurry in posting something containing errors? If you end up in this situation again, then the best thing to do would be urgent action to edit the article in question into a respectable form, addressing objections people have raised, if that is possible. (But I do wish you every success in getting articles started if you can find some respectable facts to pin one around) Sandpiper (talk) 20:17, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
