Welcome!

Hello, Harwoodcwebmaster, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions.

I notice that one of the first articles you edited was Eastern Florida State College, which appears to be dealing with a topic with which you may have a conflict of interest. In other words, you may find it difficult to write about that topic in a neutral and objective way, because you are, work for, or represent, the subject of that article. Your recent contributions may have already been undone for this very reason.

To reduce the chances of your contributions being undone, you might like to draft your revised article before submission, and then ask me or any other editor to proofread it. See our help page on userspace drafts for more details. If the page you created has already been deleted from Wikipedia, but you want to save the content from it to use for that draft, don't hesitate to ask anyone from this list and they will copy it to your user page.

One firm rule we do have in connection with conflicts of interest is that accounts used by more than one person will unfortunately be blocked from editing. Wikipedia generally does not allow editors to have usernames which imply that the account belongs to a company or corporation. If you have a username like this, you should request a change of username or create a new account. (A name that identifies the user as an individual within a given organization may be OK.)

Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your messages on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question on this page and then place {{help me}} before the question. Again, welcome!

Username[edit]

Hello. Could you please clarify the meaning of your username? It contains the word "webmaster", which implies that it is tied to a position within an organization and not an individual person. Wikipedia's username policy does not permit "role" accounts. Thanks. --Drm310 (talk) 21:06, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

The username is just for me personally -- that's my name and I am a webmaster -- I tried using just my name but it already existed and just adding numbers was not easy enough for me to remember. The account is not for the college where I work just me. If it's a problem -- I can ask to have it changed or just cancel it and create a new one. I started one article because the college (Brevard Community College) is changing its name on July 1 to Eastern Florida State College. Someone suggested merging the two articles -- the one on BCC is woefully out of date and because of Wikipedia rules it seems like I should not update it if I work there. SO not sure how that becomes accurate. Harwoodcwebmaster (talk) 13:35, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

I'd advise you to request a change of username, just to remove the "webmaster" part. Doing that will alleviate any concerns that your account is shared by others.
As for the article in question, you could suggest changes on its talk page. Please include reliable sources for your suggested changes, which will greatly increase the likelihood that they will be used. Thanks. --Drm310 (talk) 17:47, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
