Some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Jason hunt may not be sufficiently well-known to merit articles of their own. The Wikipedia community welcomes newcomers, and encourages them to become Wikipedians. By starting an account or logging in, each user is entitled to a user page in which they can describe themselves, and this article's content may be incorporated into that page. However, to merit inclusion in the encyclopedia proper, a subject must be notable. We encourage you to write or improve articles on notable subjects. --Ryan Delaney talk 04:31, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

Advocate[edit]

Hi. I've agreed to act as your advocate. You laid out your problem pretty well, and I think I understand what you want to get out of the AMA. Over the next couple of days, I'm going to see what's happening on the article's page. Please do not make any edits regarding this issue at the time. In many cases where a single user is constantly deleting another editor's updates, a brief cooling off period helps to facilitate a speedy and satisfactory outcome. I'll get back to you with any questions I have. If you prefer to contact via email, please let me know by posting a message below (I will watch your talk page). I'm sure we'll get this matter wrapped up quickly. Bobby 15:35, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Update - Just to get a feel for the current dispute, I adjusted the Addictions section to give each side (Addictive v Not Addictive) some coverage. Please let me know if the current passage would be an acceptable final product (pending further studies). Bobby 16:24, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Closing Case - The changes I made to the article space remain pretty much as I left them. In fact, a few folks dropped by and expanded on them. I'll keep an eye on the page for a while to see if anyone tries to revert, but aside from that there's not much more to do. I'll close your case (archived here) in the mean time. Please feel free to contact me if you need anything else. Bobby 18:53, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your help. The changes are fine. Much appreciated!Janhunt 18:59, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions, including your edits to Noriko Watanabe. However, please be aware of Wikipedia's policy that biographical information about living persons must not be libelous.

Natural Child Project[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Natural Child Project, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising that only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of Natural Child Project and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from independent reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. De728631 (talk) 16:34, 21 August 2008 (UTC)


Information.svg Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! I noticed that you recently added a {{hangon}} template to an article. In order for an administrator to evaluate whether the article should be speedy deleted or not, we request that you provide reasoning, on the article's talk page, for why it should remain. Thank you.ArakunemTalk 16:39, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I can't figure out how to leave a note on your talk page, so I'll leave one here.

The Natural Child Project is a well-established parenting and unschooling organization. Though the website includes a fundraising shop, the vast majority of the pages are comprised of free articles and advice for parents, and an art gallery for children. We are well-known and respected in the attachment parenting and unschooling communities. Please contact me if you need more information.

Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. Thank you. [1] MrOllie (talk) 20:41, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Hello Janhunt. If you are affiliated with 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, 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.

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --Orange Mike | Talk 16:10, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Self-advertisement[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to add soapboxing, promotional or advertising material to Wikipedia, as you did at Unschooling, you may be blocked from editing. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I find this process quite frustrating. I am not a business person trying to advertise a product to make money; I am trying to provide material that I think will be helpful to your readers. I have been an unschooling parent for 30 years, have written dozens of articles on the subject, and have given many interviews to the press. In short, I am an expert on this subject and believe that The Unschooling Unmanual (which I co-edited with my always-unschooled son) and a link to our website articles (which has also been removed from the Unschooling page) are completely relevant and would be useful to readers looking for material on this subject. I'm sure that you want your encyclopedia to be thorough and relevant. Why are you rejecting help from someone who is a recognized authority in this field? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Janhunt (talkcontribs) Janhunt (talkcontribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

Please refrain from writing autobiographical articles, as you did at Jan Hunt (psychologist). Creating an article about yourself is strongly discouraged; if you create such an article, it may be deleted. All edits to articles must conform to our policies on no original research, neutral point of view, and avoid conflicts of interest. Please remember that Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia, not a personal webspace provider. If your achievements are verifiable and genuinely notable, and thus suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later.

Self-advertisement redux Dec 2011[edit]

I've removed a self-promoting link. Looks like you've been through this before.

Links to thenaturalchild.org were added on 13:19 15 May 2010 by 216.87.230.212 which resolves to Bend OR, within the margin of error of free IP geolocation as the Sunriver location found on the website itself.

An additional link by that IP on 2 March 2011 added the Unschooling Manual to the Further Reading section naming Jan and Jason Hunt as editors.

On 13 March 14:42 a link to the Unschooling Unmanual was added by user Janhunt.

I notice that you also have self-promoting links on the articles Babywearing, Tough love, Methylphenidate, Learning disability, Parenting, Learning, and Homeschooling.

You might wish to read up on The Five Pillars of Wikipedia which introduces in point two "Neutral Point of View" as one of the most important features of Wikipedia. One of the things this means, is that verifiable authoritative sources should be cited. This concept is expanded on in the Neutral point of view Help page.

One of the ways to maintain NPoV is avoiding Conflict of Interest. There is a set of guidelines on Wikipedia, one of which is the Conflict of Interest Guideline. This is a good page to look at to understand why adding links to your own books is not a good idea in Wikipedia, even if the books themselves may be very pertinent to the topic.

Reading up on the Five Pillars, NPOV, and Conflict of Interest will help make you a better editor. Mathglot (talk) 23:25, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
