Neutral Point of View[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Mr. Guye. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. --Mr. Guye (talk) 23:59, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

No advertising[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Mr. Guye. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School because it appeared to be promotional. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.--Mr. Guye (talk) 23:59, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

No Conflicts of Interests[edit]

Information icon Hello, We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you.--Mr. Guye (talk) 23:59, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
