Information icon Hello, Jeffroorda. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. 2601:188:1:AEA0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 01:21, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Hi Jeff, at this point it would be appropriate for me to post a level three warning to you: your edit history has been to add content you find favorable to your biography--much promotional content was removed by other editors--and delete that which you don't like. Please read the encyclopedia's guidelines, and request changes on the article's talk page. Thank you. 2601:188:1:AEA0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 01:28, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Request reason:

I was in no way trying to be overly persistent or disruptive in the edits I was attempting to make. Much of the accurate, sourced biographical information on the Wiki page "Jeff Roorda" had been removed and replaced with inaccurate, unsourced or poorly sourced editorial commentary. I was attempting to restore the accuracy of the page and thought that I was doing something wrong when attempting to save the restored content. It wasn't until I found my way to this talk page that I realized that it was the administrator removing the content rather than a problem with the way I was saving it. I'm glad to abide by Wiki rules but I also think Wiki needs to abide by its own rules about libelous statements and accuracy of biographies of living persons. Tell me how to do that without violating your rules and I'm happy to comply. Jeffroorda (talk) 02:06, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I agree, accurate, sourced biographical information has been replaced by unsourced or poorly sourced content. By you. While there were some problems with the article, most of your edits did not involve fixing inaccurate or libelous content. It's strongly suggested that article subjects do not write about themselves but propse changes on the article's talk page and leave it to uninvolved editors to decide whether they would improve the article.

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.
