Conflict of interest[edit]

Information.svg If you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Create Synchronicity, 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, 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; and
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).

Please familiarize yourself with 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 a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. --Orange Mike | Talk 17:55, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for this comment, OrangeMike. I indeed am well aware of the pages that you mention. However, I have tried to write this article from a point of view as neutral as possible. I furthermore didn't oppose that a neutrality tag be placed on my article, nor did I claim that it would be absolutely neutral.Provided that the project has reached a certain number of users, I considered that it would be time for it to have its own Wikipedia page, so as to be included on the list of backup software. I would be delighted, though, if you could participate in reviewing this article, so as to make sure that the point of view is actually neutral. I have made since yesterday a significant number of modifications, that I think have contributed in making this article more informative, and less prone to sounding like an advertising. Please do remember that I do not make any profit whatsoever when my software is downloaded: this is open source software we are dealing with after all :)
Another thing that one could add is that the List of backup software page is unpleasantly unbalanced: it contains almost three times more proprietary software than open source software. Creating this article contributed in restoring equilibrium a bit.
To conclude, I have added to the article that I wrote as many different sources of information as I could. I did my best to stay absolutely neutral, and to not suggest that Create Synchronicity may be better than any other software, except when the speed was due to elements in the .Net Framework itself, and were subsequently unquestionable.
OrangeMike, could you please review this article and tell me which things you consider should be improved in terms of neutrality? Cfpcompte (talk) 18:52, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Features lists, especially bulleted lists are not encyclopedic. Words like "however" "yet" and "finally" reek of the software review, as does the carefully selected pull quote. The stated aims of the programmer are irrelevant: like mission statements they may cover more than they reveal. --Orange Mike | Talk 20:53, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
I see; thanks for your remarks, OrangeMike. I understood however that I have to use quotes while sourcing the writing of this article. I tried to imitate what I could see in other articles about software though. Could you please point me to well-written articles about software, which make little enough use of logical connectors, so that I can draw inspiration from these?
