Annville Mill[edit]

Hi MCCGgirl,

You seem to be getting overwhelmed with the procedures and practices here at Wikipedia. Hopefully, I'll be able to clear up some of what is happening for you.

You created the article at Annville Mill, but it is now no longer solely your article, but open to every editor of the project to edit and help improve. When some of the content you entered is removed, you can use the history button at the top of the article page to see who made the edit and why the made the change. In this case, your additions are being described as spam.

You have to understand that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and not just a web site with random content. While the section that currently remains in the article is a reasonable start to an article describing the historically important mill, Adding a list and description of its products along with links to the product pages is seen as advertising and beyond the scope of what should be in an article.

Edits to the page are currently blocked because, in your confusion with what was going on, you got into an edit war and the pages was locked to stop the constant addition and deletion of the same content. The page will be open again for editing on 2 November 2013.

Please spend the time between now and the article being unlocked reading the links in the welcome message at the top of this page. They should help you get more of a feel for how to work on wikipedia and turn your article into something to be proud of. You might also want to do a search to find some other company articles and try to get a feel for how those are usually structured.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note on my talk page. --GraemeL (talk) 15:18, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Hello MCGgirl. I looked over a recent version of the Annville Mill article having the most bytes.[1] That version had too much information (1) not directly related to the main topic (the mill itself), (2) not sourced (3) to Wikipedia reliable sources (4) that are independent of the main topic (the mill) and those connected to the mill. These four features are part of what Wikipedia uses to keep article length in check. (1) Much of the removed text went off on tangents, such as discussing details of All - Purpose Flour. The statement "Daisy All-Purpose flour can be used in fine dough" and other references in the article To Daisy sourced to Daisyflour.com violate WP:NOTPROMOTION. (2) Each sentence should have a footnote at the end of it to let the reader know where the editor summarized the information. (3) Generally Wikipedia reliable sources are not websites and press releases. The mill is so old that the article can be build from information in books, magazines, and newspaper articles - yet the sources you chose are others websites (mostly Daisyflour.com) without determining whether those websites met the Wikipedia reliable sources requirements. (4) The Annville Mill flour is sifted and bagged under the name of Daisy Organic Flour, so Daisyflour.com is not independent of the Annville Mill topic. The article could be well written from independent sources. For example, a good source for the article is this. However your choosing sources that are connected to the Annville Mill to write the Wikipedia article creates problems. Please consider GraemeL's advise above.-- Jreferee (talk) 15:47, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm John of Reading. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added to the page Annville Mill, because they seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thank you. John of Reading (talk) 17:29, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

I'm surprised that no-one has yet pointed you to Wikipedia's conflict of interest guideline. Your choice of account name seems to imply a connection with McGeary Organics. -- John of Reading (talk) 17:47, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
