About that vandalism 4im warning you sent me[edit]

Well,i have some questions to you about the vandalism 4im warning you sent me yesterday. How is creating a single redirect page considered 4im vandalism? I dont understand,because one user sent me a level 1 warning before you,not a 4im warning. I would like to know why was it immediately considered severe 4im vandalism. Again,this is just a question,not meant to insult you or offend you. Just asking,anyways,gonna wait for your answer.Eric8123 (talk) 09:03, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

  • @Eric8123: The 4im warning (nice that you know the shorthand term for that...) wasn't only due to a single redirect, even one described as a joke. That redirect just caught my eye and had me look at your other contributions: Adding pornographic pics to a page with the summary "Reverting vandalism", then later saying it was just a prank, prodding articles like Earned run as "not notable", etc. You've made some good edits but too many "playing around" edits, so the warning was to cut out the playing.

About GFL Changes[edit]

@ Crow I just want to know where do you find promotional content? I have gone through different Wikipedia pages for example this page content The same way edited the content from my end. Its a group of companies so I have covered all the topics. Kindly suggest what type of changes do you exactly need since I have added appropriate information at — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:39, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Well, much of the content is pulled from their web site, making it a copyright violation. Other factual (non-copyrightable) material that come across as promotional include parts like their financial condition (cash, credit rating, etc), that is more suited for a sales glossy than an encyclopedia article. The primary problem with the removed content was copyright though. CrowCaw 18:44, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
  • @ See my individual edits which describe the specific reasons for each. I'll be happy to discuss promotional content and how to rephrase it, but please do not re-add copyrighted content. Thanks, CrowCaw 19:09, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

@ Crow I believe there is no such copyright issues. I am bit confused why did you delete "Inox Group" section as its a group of companies and second "product section", It has just one line with appropriate citation. Kindly guide me what should I do to get that section back and avoid to repeat this rework. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:16, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

  • That section was copied from which asserts copyright. You can certainly add a section on the Inox Group, but do so in your own words. The basic facts are free of copyright of course, but text like "INOX Group is a family owned, professionally managed business group, with market leadership in diverse businesses including..." among others, is considered creative content, thus must be written in your own words.

@ Crow thanks for your prompt response, I got your point. Do I need to get content approval from you before I post to the page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:36, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Not at all! I think you understand my concerns, so feel free, and thanks! CrowCaw 19:39, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
