Feel free to drop me a note on this page. (Old discussions can be found here: Archive)

Hi Deli nk

Did our new contributions to the IP Code page break any guidelines? We did place one reference back to a page on our site that holds similar information to our Wikipedia contribution - isn't that suitable as a reference?

We feel that the IP Code page is lacking in information regarding the fact that Ingress Protection ratings are now used heavily in consumer electronics.

Can we please publish our contributions.

It looks like the "edit filter" prevented you from saving the changes you wanted to make to IP Code because your edits included adding an external link to a website that matches your username. Such edits are generally not acceptable because self-promotion is generally looked down upon here. As the note I left on your talk page outlines, editing with a conflict of interest (such as sourcing your edits from a website that you own) can be tricky and the guidelines that note link to should be helpful. Also, usernames are not permitted to match the name of a website, so it is likely that you'll be asked to sign up with a different username. I don't know that much about the topic area of IP Code, so I'm afraid I can't be too helpful on the merits of the actual information you were trying to add to the article.
