Username policy[edit]

You've been constructive on Wikipedia so far. Therefore, rather than block this account as a violation of Wikipedia:Username policy, I'll leave it unblocked so that you can go to WP:CHU/Simple to request a change of your username. Your contribution history will be retained under the new name.

User names must represent only you as an individual. They can't represent a company or other organization, or a role that could be occupied by anyone. Thanks for your understanding. ~Amatulić (talk) 19:53, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

The ironic thing is, the conversation you had about confirmation requests built up sufficient edits for you to be auto-confirmed anyway.
By the way, if you do anything on Wikipedia regarding topics to which you're associated, please read and abide by Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. It's also a good idea to disclose your conflict of interest on your user page if you will be editing in topic areas close to you. ~Amatulić (talk) 23:11, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Your submission at Articles for creation[edit]

AFC-Logo Decline.svg
Thank you for your recent submission to Articles for Creation. Your article submission has been reviewed. The submission has not been accepted because it included copyrighted information, which is not permitted on Wikipedia. You are welcome to write an article on the subject, but please do not use copyrighted work.

Possible conflict of interest[edit]

Hello, KevinSpiro. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article NioGold Mining Corporation, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • You need not declare your conflict of interest, but we recommend it.
  • Do not edit articles about yourself, your organization, or your competitors. Do not edit related articles. (Exceptions.)
  • Post suggestions and sources on the article's talk page, or create a draft in your user space.
  • Your role is to summarize, inform and reference — not to promote, sell, or whitewash.
  • If writing a draft, write without bias, as if you don't work for the company or personally know the subject.
  • Have us review your draft.
  • Work with us and we'll work with you.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. NioGold Mining appears to be a client of Viral Network of which Kevin Spiro, this account's namesake, is an account manager. Jojalozzo 19:02, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
