Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia. While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion. Thank you. DMacks (talk) 01:59, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
Angusmccoll, you are invited to the Teahouse
This is your last warning. The next time you use Wikipedia for soapboxing, promotion or advertising, as you did at James Cook University, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. As has been noted repeatedly in edit-summaries, here on your talk-page, and now in response to your question on the article talk-page, you appear to be the one making this article unencyclopediac in an attempt to promote your school.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited James Cook University, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mike Reynolds (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Thanks, the problem is now fixed.
Hello, Angusmccoll. 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 James Cook University, 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.
- Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
- 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.
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. Flat Out let's discuss it 00:54, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
