{{help me}} Hi Edward, I have made numerous changes to the Crowe Clark Whitehill pages to make them sound impartial and factual. Please could you confirm if this will remove the warning boxes at the top of the page? If not, what else would need amending? I would be grateful if you could assist.

September 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, please do not add promotional material to articles or other Wikipedia pages. 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.

Help request[edit]

The Crowe Clark Whitehill Wikipedia page seems to have reverted to the old version, please could you explain why this is as much of the factual information has been lost? Plese could the latest version be restored and if further editing is required the it can be done to the most current version. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aghattaura (talkcontribs) 12:36, 26 September 2011

If you click "View history" at the top of the Crowe Clark Whitehill page, you can see what changes have been made, who made them, and (if they used the WP:Edit summary feature, as one should do) the reasons for the changes. Your additions to the article have been reverted by administrator JamesBWatson (talk), who left you a warning above on this page: his edit summaries are "Reverting to pre-spam version" and "Removing promotional claim sourced to a "reference" that does not confirm the claim".
The way that Wikipedia works is described at WP:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle: if you think a change will improve the encyclopedia, be BOLD and make it; but if it is then reverted, do not repeat it, which can lead to WP:Edit warring, but discuss it with the other editor(s), and try to reach a WP:Consensus. If you are not able to reach a consensus, there are WP:Dispute resolution processes available.
So your next step, if you are unhappy with JamesBWatson's changes, should be to discuss them with him; but bear in mind that Wikipedia requires a neutral point of view and is very resistant to being used for any kind of advertising or promotion. Also, if you are connected with the company, you have from our point of view a WP:Conflict of interest and should read that guideline and WP:Best practices for editors with conflicts of interest. The WP:FAQ/Organizations may also be helpful. JohnCD (talk) 16:26, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
