Princess Cruises[edit]

First, thank you for asking questions instead of just moving forward and making the edits again. In response to your questions, first I need to know a few things:

  • From how you worded your question I am concerned that this is a group account and controlled by more than one person, which is also against the user policy (all accounts must be controlled by only one person for copyright and attribution purposes)
  • Your edits and question lead me to infer that you are either employed by Princess Cruises themselves as part of the PR department or via an outside agency contracted for their PR.

In response to your actual questions, please read Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations. The answers to all of your questions should be there, and if there are still some things that are not clear, please do not hesitate to ask questions of me as you already have. -MBK004 19:33, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the response. You are correct that proper referencing is required, but that reference cannot be from the company itself per our guidelines which you should read before editing: WP:CITE, WP:RS, WP:SOURCE. As to the best way, you may want to bring up your concerns on the talk page and also present the sources to back yourself up. As a private editor you, of course, are welcome to take the initiative and edit the article, but be forewarned that exclusively sourcing to Princess corporate websites will get your account blocked as a promotional account. -MBK004 20:18, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
