Possible conflict of interest
Hello, Lswuser. 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 Lab School of Washington, you may need to consider our guidance on conflicts of interest.
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:
- Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
- Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
- Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
- Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.
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. - DVdm (talk) 17:34, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
Hello, I'm Excirial. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with to Lab School of Washington, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 19:19, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Please refrain from making nonconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Lab School of Washington with . Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism. Thank you.

I am very thank for your corrections. I'm Matt Frattali, I teach technology at the Lab School. Every year for one day we study Wikipedia. We talk about the accuracy of importance of Wikipedia. We start out in the sandbox to learn the basics of editing. I like students to edit the official Lab School page since authenticity is important. This year, to prevent vandalism, students were instructed to make a single edit: to change the word "learning difficulty" to"learning difference". There were thirty students in the room, the vast majority followed directions, and clearly one or two did not, and I'm very sorry for that. We all used the same login "Lswuser" since it's impossible to create 30 accounts from one IP simultaneously. Thanks again for making the corrections.
