Please consider removing your notability and citation tag on this page[edit] as i do believe it's a much more fleshed out article now. (talk) 10:15, 19 December 2012 (UTC)


Thank you for your anti-vandalism contribs recently. I personally found that rather frustrating as an anon editor, but... Pinkbeast (talk) 14:59, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

You reverted my edits to Mobile phone tracking[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your struggle against vandalism. However, I would appreciate if you could explain why you has recently reverted an AlterGeo-related part of my edits to the Mobile phone tracking article? It is unique in the number of approaches it has developed and implements to be "hybrid". It is backed by Intel and Esther Dyson. TechCrunch and Financial Times write about it. Experts are used to giving international awards to AlterGeo and recognizing it in other forms. Etc. Thank you for your kind response, in advance.--Andreykh (talk) 19:17, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi and thanks for your note! Just a quick background question: are you in any way involved with the company in question? Do you work there, or have you been hired to provide corporate advertising for them, or paid Wikipedia editing for them? Or are you a completely disinterested third party? Just curious. Thanks in advance for your hones answer, and thanks for your contributions! (talk) 20:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi, thank you for replying quickly. I have been researching location-related solutions for several years, so I just know the founders of this company in person quite well. I am excited with their company's performance, so I think it would be honest for their technology to be mentioned where appropriate, and that is why I decided to start the AlterGeo page here as my first experience. Why do you think those addings to that article were no good? I think AlterGeo is much more than just a small startup if we take a look at what they are doing and how they are recognized...--Andreykh (talk) 13:49, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
No, Wikipedia is not a place to advertise small companies. Spamming Wikipedia about a small startup constitutes undue weight for it, misleading the reader about the importance of the company, and is thus the exact opposite of "honest". (talk) 16:17, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
No, I am not advertising a small startup. I am honest and do not express my personal opinion neither in those big-topic articles, nor anywhere else on Wikipedia. This is a prominent company with a unique technology. This is a great pity you do not understand this. And I am not affiliated with them in any way. I am just a researcher that decided to contribute to Wikipedia. Sorry for that. However, I will make those edits again, but with some reference links and a link to AlterGeo's page on Wiki. If you revert them again, I am afraid I will have to ask more experienced people from here for a help because I am sure you are wrong. Thank you. Best regards, Andreykh (talk) 18:16, 28 November 2013 (UTC) is pretty experienced, and quite correct in this case. You have an obvious conflict of interest and should avoid editing articles on this subject. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:57, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Addendum; from Special:Contributions/Andreykh there's quite a bit of this stuff (the account exists only to promote this company) and it might be worth stripping more of it out. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:59, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
For the record, Andreykh's claim that I reverted his edits is not true in the first place. I edited text in an article he had edited before but I did not revert his edits. (talk) 17:05, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Dear friends and Pinkbeast, the fact that I know somebody does not mean that there would be a conflict of interests if I mention this person or entity somewhere. As I said, I am a researcher, and location-based matters are of the greatest interest to me. That is why I started my life on Wikipedia from these things. Now I am working on another article about a completely different subject. And that is it. No paid work. No ads. I appreciate your opinions anyway, and thank you for them because they really shed light on some certain matters here to me. However, could you please help me again and tell me where I can ask other people to explain me who is right. Am I right thinking that such a request should placed here, in Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration? It goes without saying that I will accept any decision/recommendation of the experienced and disinterested Wikipedia people. Thanks in advance for your kind help. Andreykh (talk) 17:39, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
If you'll accept any recommendation of experienced and disinterested Wikipedia people, accept mine; don't edit articles where you have an obvious conflict of interest, and I do mean these ones. But presumably you actually mean "any recommendation I like". Pinkbeast (talk) 17:42, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
I do not have a conflict of interest. Please read again carefully. Thank you. And no, I mean any recommendations from not you. You are rude, and your harassments of new users like I am are unacceptable. Andreykh (talk) 19:32, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Your contribs on go back a few months into 2012; plenty of them, over a period of more than a year. (And no prizes for guessing what they're about). New user, are you? Pinkbeast (talk) 19:50, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Will your "completely different subject" be a company called Gvidi by any chance? (Hint: (talk) 18:58, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Ah, no, sorry, that's not a company, that's a product of the company in question. You have no interests besides this company and its products on the Russian Wikipedia either. (talk) 19:06, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
No. Stop that, please. I do not understand what a problem it is to start with one thing, not a bunch of them. Yes, I created an article about AlterGeo on first. Then here. What's the problem?! You are ridiculous. The fact that you have been editing Wikipedia for a long time does not allow you the right to continue offending me and lying on and on. Andreykh (talk) 19:32, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Well spotted. Pinkbeast (talk) 19:52, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Well echoed. I found time to create an article on one subject. I put it on Russian Wiki, then on the English one. What's the problem? Don't you think that a responsible person needs some time to get into one subject matter, get all done with it, and just after that proceed to the other stuff? Of course, you don't, unfortunately.
