How to go about editing/cleaning up the Alvarez & Marsal page[edit]

Hi, Tazerdadog,

I work in the marketing dept. for Alvarez & Marsal New York, and I am tasked with the job of editing/cleaning up this page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alvarez_and_Marsal). Since you are one of the editors who reviewed the draft, I figured you might be a good place to start the conversation. I would like to do things properly so as to avoid any COIs that might arise. Any help you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks, Eric EricArthurA&M (talk) 17:09, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello! Fifst of all, sorry for the delay, and [i]thank you[/i] for being open about your COI. If you follow The bright line rule, which says that you do not edit the article directly, but rather make comments or suggestions on the talk page, it is relatively hard to get into trouble. First of all, if there is any particular pressing point that your employers want addressed, let me know. We will not whitewash the article or make it less than strictly neutral and objective, but we are just as interested in making sure it is clean, error-free and informative as you are. I would recommend moving this conversation to the talk page of the article now, also. I have put it on my watchlist, so I will see anything that you post there. Cheers, and thanks for doing things the right way. Tazerdadog (talk) 17:24, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
You aalso may want to read this, and make an appropriate statement on your user page. Also pinging CorporateM, in case I've forgotten anything.
Thank you, Tazerdadog. I have mentioned my affiliation with A&M on my Talk Page, and I will follow the bright line rule. I will move this conversation to the Talk page as you suggested. Thanks for all, Eric. EricArthurA&M (talk) 18:57, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup 2014 June newsletter[edit]

After an extremely close race, Round 3 is over. 244 points secured a place in Round 4, which is comparable to previous years- 321 was required in 2013, while 243 points were needed in 2012. Pool C's Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) was the round's highest scorer, mostly due to a 32 featured pictures, including both scans and photographs. Also from Pool C, Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished second overall, claiming three featured articles, including the high-importance Grus (constellation). Third place was Pool B's , whose contributions included featured articles Russian battleship Poltava (1894) and Russian battleship Peresvet. Pool C saw the highest number of participants advance, with six out of eight making it to the next round.

The round saw this year's first featured portal, with Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions) taking Portal:Literature to featured status. The round also saw the first good topic points, thanks to Florida 12george1 (submissions) and the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. This means that all content types have been claimed this year. Other contributions of note this round include a featured topic on Maya Angelou's autobiographies from Idaho Figureskatingfan (submissions), a good article on the noted Czech footballer Tomáš Rosický from Bartošovice v Orlických horách Cloudz679 (submissions) and a now-featured video game screenshot, freely released due to the efforts of Republic of Rose Island Sven Manguard (submissions).

The judges would like to remind participants to update submission pages promptly. This means that content can be checked, and allows those following the competition (including those participating) to keep track of scores effectively. This round has seen discussion about various aspects of the WikiCup's rules and procedures. Those interested in the competition can be assured that formal discussions about how next year's competition will work will be opened shortly, and all are welcome to voice their views then. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!
