Ralph Munro[edit]

Dear MelbourneStar,

I work for Mr. Ralph Munro. He wrote his bio, and I said in my comments that I was updating and expanding the text per his request.

How can I convince you that Mr. Munro's revised bio should be allowed to stand? He is a living politician, and he wrote the entry.

Please, please allow me to make the changes he requested. Jannutting (talk) 04:25, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Please note, that simply adding references at the end of the article (instead of citing them as you go --Ie. at the end of a sentence) will not be acceptable, and the content will be removed. Please refer to WP:INCITE. Also, please do not remove content that is already present within the article and verified by reliable sources. Kind regards, —MelbourneStar☆talk 04:21, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Please help me to understand. Is it true that a living political figure cannot modify the information presented about himself? Mr. Munro edited/authored the entire updated article, and I cannot imagine anyone more qualified to verify that the information is correct. I would understand the need to cite individual sentences if they were authored by or taken from different sources, but the entire article was authored by Mr. Munro.

I am sincerely not trying to be difficult. I work for him and am trying very hard to do what he asked me to do.

Thank you. Jannutting (talk) 04:34, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Jannutting: and welcome to Wikipedia!
There are numerous issues with allowing such content to be in said article.
Conflict of interest: the subject of the article should not be editing or having someone add content on their behalf to their article. Such content must be discussed on the article's talk page, wherein an independent editor will either pursue all, parts, or none of the content put forward.
Secondly, the edits one has made are clearly promotional -- Wikipedia is not a soapbox or means of advertising an individual, place, company etc. Content must be written in a neutral point of view, period.
Furthermore, you cannot remove content without establishing consensus supporting your reasoning for removing content.
Please note, that content on Wikipedia depends on verifiable reliable sources – please use inline references when adding citations, so each claim made is verifiable to the reader.
I understand things aren't as easy as they seem -- I assure you I'm not trying to be difficult either, it's just that we have strict processes we must follow on Wikipedia. Best, —MelbourneStartalk 04:38, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi @2405:7F00:A800:132:39FE:FB84:F5AA:7C52: if you continue to make disruptive unconstructive edits as you have done over on the Pocahontas article, you may lose your editing privileges. Regards, —MelbourneStartalk 11:48, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
