Conflict of interest[edit]

Hello, Dr John Wells. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article West Lothian Archaeological Trust, you may need to consider our guidance on conflicts of interest.

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. Please review the comments I have made on the article talk page, which addresses several issues with your edits. --Drm310 (talk) 20:57, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

West Lothian Archaeological Trust[edit]

Thank you for the question. I did not add most of the tags that appear on the article page, and I would ask Drm310 about the improvements done on the article (it appears this user did most of this tagging). The only tag I can recall adding to the article is the conflict of interest tag, which should stay in place until someone other then yourself makes significant contributions to the article. If you have further questions, feel free to talk to me again. Rushbugled13 (talk) 20:56, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Re: Scottish Hill Forts[edit]

Took me a while to work it out but I think you must mean these edits: [1] ? Glad it is appreciated. Not sure which are 'my' hillforts, but fun as kite aerial photography appears to be, I'm afraid I've no time at present. If you need any help with WP editing and adding pages on hillforts, I may be able to offer more useful assistance, just let me know. Regards, Jonathan Oldenbuck (talk) 13:29, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Tom Hanlin[edit]

I noticed from your page edits that you might have an interest in the new Tom Hanlin article - I have copied some of the text you added to the Armadale, West Lothian page to the talk page there, so it can be referenced and added to the new article as appropriate. Any help that you can give on this subject is very welcome. ---- nonsense ferret 01:39, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
