Hi, the Philip Weller article just needs some independent sources, as explained here WP:RS. So if you could find references to Weller in books other than his own, news articles, journals and the like that would help. (I'd also point you to our conflict of interest guidelines, here). There are many articles tagged for improvement in Wikipedia, so if you are unable to add independent sources yourself, then in time someone else may. I think the article is a very good start.

Hello and thanks for your reply and help; technically, the article quoted here is an independent source: A magazine targeting decision makers in water management in Europe, published by the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River before Philip Weller took office in 2003. I will add suggestions for further references to the discussion page of the article.

Another warm welcome[edit]

Hello, Icpdr-pp, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions.

I notice that one of the first articles you edited 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 reverted for this very reason.

To reduce the chances of deletion, you might like to draft your article before submission, then ask me or any other editor to proofread it. To start creating a draft article, just click your user name at the top of the screen when you are logged in, and edit that page as you would any other. 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.

The 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. It is also worth noting that Wikipedia generally does not allow editors to have usernames which specifically link them to one company or corporation. If your username does have such a name, it would be advisable for you to request a change of username.

If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! You can also just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Welcome to Wikipedia. Because we have a policy against usernames that give the impression that the account represents a group, organization or website, your account has been blocked; you are welcome to create a new account with a username that represents only you. You should also read our conflict of interest guideline. If your username doesn't represent a group, organization or website, you may appeal this username block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice. Thank you.
