Information.svg If you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Aldous Huxley, 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.

Aldous Huxley[edit]

Hi there. I for one think that the boilerplate warning you received may seem unnecessarily harsh, but it was done in response to your posting details about audio recordings which your company is selling, which the Wikipedia community considers spam and conflict of interest editing--both of which are looked down upon, and in many cases, forbidden. But don't despair! At User talk:Rees11, you identified yourself as an expert on Huxley, and rest assured, Wikipedia needs experts like you. I encourage you to improve the Aldous Huxley article using your lifelong experience and access to reliable sources. If within these audio recordings exists information that can add to the depth of the Aldous Huxley article, it may be possible to include that information, and then cite the recording as a source. Merely stating that the recordings exist will undoubtedly lead to their removal, as the folks around here are fairly convinced that you're only doing it to promote your company (and take note that if you cite these recordings, please resist the temptation to include a link to where someone could buy the CD). I also greatly encourage you to go one step further and contribute to the article using sources with which you have no affiliation. This is the very best way you can use your expertise to Wikipedia's advantage. Hope this helps. Cheers, Steamroller Assault (talk) 06:30, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

In addition, if the recordings have received reviews or have been discussed in the press, you can WP:CITE these press reports, adding all bibliographic information available: author name, title of the article or book referenced, url if available, date, pubisher name and city, and ISBN number if any. Feel free to ask me if you need help with reference format. Best regards! -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:01, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
