August 2013[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that the username you have chosen, "Lilyweeds", seems to imply that you are editing on behalf of something other than yourself. Please note that you may not edit on behalf of a company, group, institution, product, or website which relates to the entity in question, and Wikipedia does not allow usernames that are promotional or accounts that are shared. If you are willing to use a personal account, please take a moment to create a new account or request a username change that represents only yourself as an individual. You should also read our Conflict of interest guideline and Plain and simple conflict of interest guide, and remember that promotional editing is not acceptable regardless of the username you choose. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. Thank you. Alexf(talk) 18:53, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello Diana. An administrator has decided that your username can be considered a pseudonym, so it's OK. However, we like to inform new users that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia not a business directory and not a place for promotion or advertising. However, if you're interested in writing about notable topics that are verified by reliable sources, then you're quite welcome to stay. --Drm310 (talk) 14:50, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. Im sure as I'm new to putting my business online, that I've made mistakes somewhere. :) I will not use Wiki to promote my business, but will keep it strictly as a pseudonym. I appreciate all your help. Diana Lilyweeds (talk) 20:19, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
