November 2008[edit]

Information.svg If you have a close connection to some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest. In keeping with Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy, edits where there is a conflict of interest, or where such a conflict might reasonably be inferred from the tone of the edit and the proximity of the editor to the subject, are strongly discouraged. If you have a conflict of interest, you should avoid or exercise great caution when:

  1. editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with;
  2. participating in deletion discussions about articles related to your organization or its competitors;
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam); and,
  4. avoid breaching relevant 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 conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for businesses. For more details about what, exactly, constitutes a conflict of interest, please see our conflict of interest guidelines. Thank you. --Orange Mike | Talk 02:50, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

October 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Comparison of wiki software. While objective prose about products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Thank you. Greenman (talk) 19:53, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

There are several commercial products mentioned in Comparison of wiki software, so why not one more?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Adriandwalker (talk) 19:48, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
That's got nothing to do with it. You clearly have a conflict of interest, and in spite of being warned and the page protected, have shown no interest in contributing constructively, and insist on re-adding the entry without discussion. It has no article, and, in accordance with the guidelines, will continue to be removed. Please stop re-adding it. Greenman (talk) 23:51, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Comparison of wiki software, you will be blocked from editing. Greenman (talk) 23:43, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

You have been blocked for a period of 1 week from editing for continuing to add spam links. If you wish to make useful contributions, you are welcome to come back after the block expires. Persistent spammers will have their websites blacklisted from Wikipedia and potentially penalized by search engines. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first. tedder (talk) 01:23, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Your edit to List of social networking websites[edit]

Thank you for your edit to List of social networking websites. Unfortunately it had to be reverted, because the website you added to the list does not have a Wikipedia article. Please write the article first, or post to Wikipedia:Requested articles requesting that it be created. Please make sure that the article follows Wikipedia guidelines, especially as concerns verifiability, reliable sources and neutrality. If a website is not notable according to the Wikipedia definition, it shouldn't have an article and neither should it be in the list. Thank you! --bonadea contributions talk 14:59, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not add entries that lack Wikipedia articles to List of social networking websites. Please see the information just above this notice. Thank you. --bonadea contributions talk 18:19, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
