External links[edit]

Hi, Pedia07, and thanks for your interest in contributing to Wikipedia! I've noticed that in your contributions, you've added a number of links to articles by a particular author. While you should definitely feel free to improve Wikipedia by adding appropriate references, we do try to make sure that external links are highly relevant. Accordingly, I've reverted a few of your changes I've brought the subject up here, and you may want to participate in that discussion.

Additionally, you might want to take a look at our policy on external links. --RobthTalk 05:32, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm afraid that I have to agree with Robth. It seems fairly obvious that you are mostly plugging the work of Vivian C. McAlister. If you have a personal connection with Dr McAlister, please also be aware of our conflicts of interest policy. JFW | T@lk 15:41, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Thank you for the welcome and advice. I have read the policy pages as advised and will modify accordingly. I am editing a chapter on surgery and used resources to hand. I thought the contributions are all pertinent and used only open access papers that will be available to anyone anywhere free of charge. Pedia07 (talk) 18:53, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
