June 2014[edit]

Your account has been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia because it appears to be mainly intended for publicity and/or promotional purposes. If you intend to edit constructively in other topic areas, you may be granted the right to continue under a change of username. Please read the following carefully.
Why can't I edit Wikipedia?

Your account's edits and/or username indicate that it is being used on behalf of a company, group, website or organization for purposes of promotion and/or publicity. The edits may have violated one or more of our rules on spamming, which include: adding inappropriate external links, posting advertisements and using Wikipedia for promotion. Wikipedia has many articles on companies, groups, and organizations, but such groups are generally discouraged from using Wikipedia to write about themselves. In addition, usernames like yours are disallowed under our username policy.

Am I allowed to make these edits if I change my username?

Probably not, although if you can demonstrate a pattern of future editing in strict accordance with our neutral point of view policy, you may be granted this right. See Wikipedia's FAQ for Organizations for a helpful list of frequently asked questions by people in your position. Also, review the conflict of interest guidance to see the kinds of limitations you would have to obey if you did want to continue editing about your company, group, organization, or clients. If this does not fit in with your goals, then you will not be allowed to edit Wikipedia again.

What can I do now?

If you have no interest in writing about some other topic than your organization, group, company, or product, you may consider using one of the many websites that allow this instead.

If you do intend to make useful contributions here about some other topic, you must convince a Wikipedia administrator that you mean it. To that end, please do the following:

  • Add the text {{unblock-spamun|Your proposed new username|Your reason here}} on your user talk page.
  • Replace the text "Your proposed new username" with a new username you are willing to use. See Special:Listusers to search for available usernames. Your new username will need to meet our username policy.
  • Replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason to be unblocked. In this reason, you must:
    • Convince us that you understand the reason for your block and that you will not repeat the edits for which you were blocked.
    • Describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked.
If you believe this block was made in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. Bbb23 (talk) 22:40, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Your reason here: HI, I apparently choose a user name that was too general, my apologies I thought it would be easy to remember es with the EACC being my first ever entry at Wiki, I was planning to start a couple of others with co-editors if thats possible (happy to elaborate) and started with the one about the European American Chamber to get some experience and the ropes of how these entries work including fine tuning the pages once they are up. the reasoning behind the EACC page was that I felt the information about the existence of the chamber[s] would be useful in the light of current TTIP (transatlantic trade & investment partnership negotiations between Europe and the US - I took a lead from the International Chamber of Commerce and the US and Amchams that are listed on Wikipedia as well. I felt, while the page was a start and not as elaborate as the ICC that it kept a similar tone at other chamber pages without being promotional. Which wasn't our intend in case the page came across that way. Is there anything I can do to rectify this? Thank you, YvonneEACCNY (talk) 01:56, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Per below. You may write a new request taking that critique into account. — Daniel Case (talk) 04:15, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
You realise that you have to leave the PR speak like 'dynamic' behind when you cross the threshold here? And that any co-editor will have to have their own individual account? The name wasn't blocked for being 'too general'. It is the name of an organisation, and that is not allowed. I'd advise you to read WP:COI. I won't ask you to read WP:SPAM, but would suggest WP:RS (reliable independent sources) and WP:CORP and WP:GROUP if you're planning other articles. Peridon (talk) 18:41, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
Collaborate with pleasure, but ensure those collaborators have their own accounts. We have a firm policy: one person, one account, one account, one person. I suggest you conform here, literally here, (well below this) that you will be the sole user of an new account. Fiddle Faddle 19:20, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Peridon & Faddle: Thank you so much, you are right the 'dynamic" is a tad over the top, I will be happy to take that out and review the rest. Re the username usage - thank you for the clarification also on the one login one person rule. Should have been obvious, my apologies. Again I am trying to make this informative and was a little over enthusiastic ;-). Going forward should I re-register with a new name and adjust the EACC listing and work on the other ones I had planned? YpsbEACCNY (talk) 19:46, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

What you need to do is to look at Daniel Case's brief note and re-apply for an unblock in order to change your user name. In this you should acknowledge explicitly that you understand that conflict of interest is important to avoid (there are mechanisms for this which work well and which I can explain to you after a putative unblock, message me on my talk page), that you understand one user/one account as a rule, and other items raised by me and by Peridon. It is important that you do no just re-register. Users who do can find themselves blocked indefinitely for block evasion, something hard to appeal with success. So be wise, be humble and be correct Face-smile.svg Fiddle Faddle 21:29, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Daniel Case (talk) I did some reading up and consulted a few Wiki users/writers and I think I now have a better understanding of etiquette and the user/editor rules esp. in terms of the one user one account rule. My apologies that should have been obvious. As I explained to Faddle and Peridon I just started wiki and I was planning to start a few pages that I saw missing, and I decided to started with the one I felt I had the most information, references and background on. I was wondering if I should also start a profile page (like Davids). I think its a great idea to engage other editors and if I get readmitted am planning to reach out to collaborators I already have a few in mind for the other pages I was looking at. I will be careful that there isn't a conflict of interest. Faddle (talk), thank you so much for your offer to help. I will definitely take advantage of that.

I have to say I'm still concerned - WP:COI still appears to be at play here. You should not be editing any articles that you have direct involvement with the panda ₯’ 18:57, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

July 10[edit]

Completely different subject - Wiki page on Patents. Can someone check out: http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/ido/oeip/taf/cst_all.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Intellectual_Property_Indicators There seems to be a discrepancy. I can't go in an edit it as we haven't resolved the above. but maybe another editor can take a look. Thanks, ypsb EACCNY (talk) 15:17, 10 July 2014 (UTC) EACCNY (talk)
