May 2009[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; and
  3. linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).

Please familiarize yourself with 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 organizations. For more details about what, exactly, constitutes a conflict of interest, please see our conflict of interest guidelines. Thank you. Siawase (talk) 17:55, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

It's undisputed that I have a conflict of interest with respect to the Webring article. I'm open about that fact, and try to be cautious. --GunnarHj (talk) 21:17, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
That's great! I mostly noticed no one had welcomed you, and wanted to make sure you were aware of the policies related to conflict of interest. Regards, Siawase (talk) 21:31, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Recent Talk:Webring edits.[edit]

I just wanted to explain, that while I agree with you that webrings aren't a form of spamming, and that the recent poster ignored pregious consensus to that effect when he reinserted the spam category to the article, I edited out the citation needed tag you added to his comment for the simple reason that is very poor form and etiquite to edit someone else's comments, ever. It was unneeded, as your arguememnt in your response covered your position perfectly fine, and it was a bit of a misuse, as those tags are meant for calling attention to claims of fact that need verification in articles, not for use on other's opinions on talk pages.

I hope I don't come off as harsh here, my intention is to help you become a better contributor, as I believe all who are willing to edit in good faith are positives for the project, and I wouldn't want anyone to become annoyed at you for making a simple mistake.oknazevad (talk) 20:39, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, I kind of suspected that that's not the intended use of {{citation needed}}. I just felt a little frustrated by the lack of backup of his action. Anyway, I appreciate that you pointed it out; no offense taken, and my apologies to Siawase if you read this. (It's apparent that I'm still a beginner at this very special place.) Thanks! --GunnarHj (talk) 22:58, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Gald to help. And you're right, this place rocks.oknazevad (talk) 23:13, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Unified watchlist[edit]

{{helpme}} I'm currently familiarising myself with Wikipedia and its sister projects, and so far I have contributed within five project/language combinations. My account has been unified, so I only need to log in once, but now I'm wondering: Is there any way to have a unified watchlist displayed with all the Wikimedia pages I'm watching, irrespective of which project or language they belong to? --GunnarHj (talk) 20:09, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Currently, Wikipedia, and the other Wikimedia projects are missing that functionality. So, no, it's not possible at this time. Happy editing. blurredpeace 21:02, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I kind of suspected that's the case, but I thought I'd ask... Thanks, anyway. --GunnarHj (talk) 21:16, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
