Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Lifestyle Lift. While objective prose about beliefs, products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for soapboxing, advertising or promotion.

We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, 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.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content 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 a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 20:35, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

April 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Lifestyle Lift shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Your addition of promotional content to the article has been disputed repeatedly. As the user wishing to add disputed content, it is your responsibility to discuss and reach consensus for all changes before re-adding them. You may discuss them at Talk:Lifestyle Lift if you wish, but reading our neutrality policy first might give you all the information you need about why your edits aren't acceptable encyclopedia content.

April 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, but at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Lifestyle Lift, did not appear to be constructive and has been automatically reverted (undone) by an automated computer program called ClueBot NG.

  • Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Note that human editors do monitor recent changes to Wikipedia articles, and administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism.
  • ClueBot NG makes very few mistakes, but it does happen. If you believe the change you made should not have been considered as unconstructive, please read about it, report it here, remove this warning from your talk page, and then make the edit again.
  • If you need help, please see our help pages, and if you can't find what you are looking for there, please feel free to place "{{helpme}}" on your talk page and someone will drop by to help.

fluffernutter[edit]

How am I doing? Maybe I can be an editor now :-) question I have a large document I want to cite but its not online. Is there a place on wiki I can upload it to so I can cite it?

Carguy, I'm unfortunately not able to monitor your edits and the Lifestyle Lift article constantly. I very strongly encourage you to use the resources available to you at WP:Paid Editor Help to get input about the changes you want to make to the article, rather than continuing to try to go it alone. You need to edit according to our rules, and if you're not sure if you're doing that, you should ask for help, not just take a shot in the dark. A fluffernutter is a sandwich!

Lifestyle Lift[edit]

Hi there, Carguy. I wonder if I could help you explain your situation a little more clearly to other Wikipedia editors. Since we haven't talked before: I happen to work on a lot of articles where I'm representing an interested party and need to work with other editors to solve problems, so maybe I can help you out.

I read a bit of the discussion between yourself and Fluffernutter on the Lifestyle Lift discussion page, however I think I still need some assistance understanding what your concerns are. It appears that you are proposing new article text, but the reasons aren't clear. In general, I've found that other editors can be most helpful if they have a good understanding of what changes you want to make and why.

Perhaps if you break those issues down into smaller requests, and take a more incremental approach, you'll have better luck. Here's my advice:

  1. Visit WP:PAIDHELP, and click on the large "Click here to leave a new message" button.
  2. Pick just one or two aspects of the current Lifestyle Lift article that you think are handled incorrectly, and explain why you think this is the case.
  3. Include embedded links (using the [http:///www.example.com Example.com] format) in your request to verify specific facts.
  4. Based on those concerns, ask for just two or three specific changes, even though it may not address everything you wish to ask for. The less you ask for at any one time, the easier it will be for other editors to review and consider your requests.
  5. When you're finished, end your message with the following code, which will auto-generate a signature, so others can see where your message ends: ~~~~
  6. Allow at least 48 hours for someone to respond and begin the discussion. Perhaps they'll make some changes, but they may also ask questions or advise on why some changes aren't possible. Either way, clear communication will give you the best chance to make something happen.

If you have any questions, try me on my discussion page, and I'll try to offer the best advice I can. Cheers, WWB Too (talk) 14:00, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Lifestyle Lift[edit]

As you are a paid editor (the client had approached several individuals at the same time you started), please abide by the proper Wikipedia guidelines and stop trying the break protocol by multiple reverts. I have deleted the parts of the article that have no business being there and given guidelines in my comments for each deletion as to why. Please either communicate with the client as to why you cannot make the edits or kindly provide proper referencing. Paid editing is fine in my books as long as protocol is followed--no single purpose accounts, no adding of promotional material, and everything must be referenced to reliable sources. Its easy enough to get the important things down within the rules of Wikipedia.Jeremy112233 (talk) 05:41, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

I am not a paid editor but a plastic surgeon trying to work on my company lifestyle lift. I cant seem to find anyone to help me or how to contact people like you.
