Hi, I'm the one who keeps on removing the stuff you add to the Australia's Surfing Life article.

Wikipedia is a encyclopedia, so the articles have to be serious - the short version I keep putting it back to does that by sawing what the magazine is. The other bits you add are something that belongs elsewhere like your own website. WP:NOTADVERTISING has more about why. Wongm (talk) 10:03, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Conflict of interest[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. --Matilda talk 01:12, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
