Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation[edit]

Hi, I'm a paid editor working on updating the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation page. A few weeks ago, I posted a draft article updating material that has been on the IHME page for several years. I have not yet received no response. Hoping I can get some assistance here. I have studied the COI policies and intend to comply. Thanks in advance, Wikipedians! Savannah38 (talk) 17:32, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

@Savannah38: I have moved the draft from the talk page to Draft:Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. I have also done lots of cleanup. If possible could you remove the external links from the main text (they're fine at the end), and then it should be pretty ready. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 17:33, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@EoRdE6: Thanks so much, EoRdE6, for taking the time to go through this and clean it up. I'm a little confused by what you're asking me to do, though. Take out all of the external links from the article? I guess I'm confused by the term "main text." In the top section, I don't believe there are any external links - there's just internal links to Wikipedia articles. If you're saying I need to take out all the external links from the entire article, then should I put them in at the bottom somewhere? Please let me know what this needs and I'll get right on it. Thanks again. Savannah38 (talk) 23:24, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
@Savannah38: Basically there shouldn't be any external links anywhere except the external links section at the bottom and one in the infobox to the companies website if needed. Read WP:ELPOINTS, specifically #2. Thanks for your contributions! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 00:22, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
@EoRdE6: OK, I think I got all of the external links out of the body. Thanks for all your help on this. Do you think it's ready to post? And is that something you can/will do? Or do I do it? Savannah38 (talk) 20:00, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
@Savannah38: Looks good, I have made the move, and you can edit it at the main page (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) if needed. Thanks for your contributions! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 22:16, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
