October 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm GraemeL. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added, because they seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you.

Information icon Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated (whether as a link in article text, or a citation in an article), and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the page, please discuss it on the associated talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. -- intgr [talk] 20:11, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Sign. Why am I getting link warnings for adding a RELEVANT link to RELEVANT articles. Are you aware Fushi Copperweld is the patent holder for copper-clad steel. They invented the process. It's named after their company 'Copperweld'. This just ridiculous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Adding external links to companies selling related products is not a useful way to contribute to Wikipedia. Read the guidelines you've already been pointed to twice. IBM has 40,000 patents related to computers, but you don't see them linked in every other computing-related article. -- intgr [talk] 09:35, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
