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. 71.204.176.201 (talk) 05:53, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Notability concerns for articles[edit]

With respect the articles you have created at David M. Sternberg and Thought Genesis, please review the respective notability guidelines that govern authors and books. In order to establish an article on these subjects on Wikipedia, we need reliable, independent sources that verify that the notability guidelines apply. I have done a search of the internet to see if I could help find such sources, but I have not been able to do so. It seems that the book in question was self-published only a little over a month ago, and it may not yet have achieved sufficient notability to warrant an article at this time.

The article on the author has been deleted by criterion WP:CSD#A7 of the speedy deletion guidelines for not indicating the significance or encyclopedic importance of the subject. The article on the book is currently under consideration for deletion by the proposed deletion process. Any editor, including you, may halt the proposed deletion process by removing the "PROD" tag, but I would ask you first to read over the notability guidelines linked above. If evidence is not produced that the book meets these guidelines and the PROD is challenged, the article may be subject to a deletion debate. Since it can be more challenging to establish an article on a subject if such a debate closes with a decision to delete, it may be better to wait to create an article on this subject until it does bear up under that notability guideline.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to let me know at my talk page. Alternatively, you can always ask for assistance at Wikipedia's help desk, typically manned around the clock by volunteers. Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:24, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Nomination of WeWi for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article WeWi is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/WeWi until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. The Banner talk 21:31, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

I tried to work on it a bit as time permitted. Take a look for some ideas of avoiding "promotional language" red flags. One thing that made me chuckle: in computer engineering internal jargon, SOL is a frequent shorthand for "Sh*t Out of Luck", perhaps from a previous military expression like FUBAR or SNAFU. I do get the pun of course, but wonder what it might mean in various African languages. One issue I noted was that date formats were inconsistent. I started changing to the non-US standard of date first, but wonder if at least that part of Canada uses the Month first format (per most sources). Africa perhaps uses the European convention of date first (the Ghana page did), but not sure. Anyway hope it can be saved. If not, move it under your user space (ask me if you need help). Good luck with your contributions. W Nowicki (talk) 00:09, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm The Banner. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to User:MatsTheGreat because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, you can use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! The Banner talk 11:14, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not attack other editors, as you did on Talk:Sol (Laptop). Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you. Arthur goes shopping (talk) 09:02, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Sol (Laptop) for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Sol (Laptop) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sol (Laptop) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. The Banner talk 11:01, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Article has already been voted. And I see you also tried to delete Sol again from Ubuntu and other editors came in and voted you off.

December 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm The Banner. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Sol (Laptop) because it appeared to be promotional. 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. The Banner talk 11:02, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to Ubuntu (operating system). 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. The Banner talk 11:33, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Your edits to Sol (Laptop)[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion pages. Doing so won't stop the discussion from taking place. You are, however, welcome to comment about the proposed deletion on the appropriate page. Thank you. Ivanvector (talk) 15:50, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

In case you did not noticed this article has already been through Afd and voted KEEP. User the banner can't bring it up again after already been voted. DSNR (talk) 15:50, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

That's not correct. The first AfD concluded that the article on WeWi should be moved here, which it was, and that the company is not notable but its product is. Therefore, this page should be about the laptop and not about the company. The Banner apparently feels that enough time passed for the issues mentioned to be resolved; since they weren't, he nominated the article for deletion again. The second nomination may have been in poor form, but he is entitled to do so. You cannot just decide that the discussion is closed, Wikipedia doesn't work that way, and if you continue to remove the template without allowing the discussion to take place, you are being disruptive, and you may be blocked from editing. The discussion is going to happen anyway. Ivanvector (talk) 16:32, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
If you've tracked this page long enough you would have noticed that every time someone adds information about the laptop the banner user deletes it. The user deletes information about the laptop and than decides not enough edits were made? This is absolute nonsense DSNR (talk) 16:32, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I've pointed that out in the AfD discussion. It looks to me like the AfD is moot, the article will be kept, but the process needs to happen. An admin might come by and decide to close it early, but that's not very likely. In the meantime, the right thing to do is participate in the discussion, and improve the article if you can. Keep in mind however that you appear to have a conflict of interest here, so it might be better for you to suggest changes on the article's talk page, and wait for a neutral editor to actually update the article. There are a few participating already. If banner continues to disruptively delete content on the page, someone will point this out to an administrator and he may also be banned from editing. You shouldn't, or if you do, be very clear to point out your conflict of interest. Ivanvector (talk) 17:18, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm giving up, the article is very subjective and uses many references from reliable sources. I'm not touching a thing on this page. Looks like other users are already fixing it anyway. But if I do see that the banner deletes or disrupts again I will undo his activities. DSNR (talk) 16:32, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

It is plain up to you, DSNR. Filing nonsense block-request is not going to help you. Removing maintenance templates and removing AfD-templates neither. You are/were constantly promoting the laptop instead of giving a neutral description.

To my opinion, the information about the company in the lead and under "Developer information" can be cut out or at least reduced. For the laptop it is not interesting to tell that the company is into ad hoc disaster recovery and connectivity services for private and public sector as well as research and development of technology for government, defense and public health sectors. The company specializes in designing and deploying data centers for military and government bodies. That is company promotion. It is also not necessary to tell the world that you founded the company in 2009 because that is not relevant to the laptop. The article should be about the laptop and nothing more. The Banner talk 18:34, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

  • DSNR, I just closed the AfD as keep, but I have one more comment on the topic: I urge you to refrain from editing this and other articles you are associated with in real life. The Banner is not the only one who has noted the COI--in fact, the very first edit on this talk page already points it out. If you continue to edit "your" articles in what is perceived to be a disruptive manner, or in a manner which promotes the subject one way or another, I will block you and/or ask for a topic ban to prevent further disruption. I hope it doesn't have to come to that. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 18:55, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
That COI is an opinion of few individuals. and Thebanner user kept calling the entire thing spam and taking out vital information. You'll notice that the majority of other users have asked him to stop deleting information such as photovoltaic references and such. Disruptive manner? Disruptive manner is thebanner edits - plain and simple. I'm not going to touch this from now on I give up with this thing. It looks like there are other people that care more about this than I do. Maybe take a look at thebanner's other activities like on Ubuntu and than do something about people being disruptive instead of pointing your fingers solely towards one editor.
