March 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Biker Biker. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Monkey (programming language) because it appeared to be promotional. Advertising and using Wikipedia as a "soapbox" are against Wikipedia policy and not permitted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about Wikipedia. Thank you.

Hello, MichaelHartlef. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, please read our plain and simple conflict of interest guide.

Everyone must follow our conflict of interest (COI) and neutral point of view policies. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to accidentally add overly-flattering or overly-disparaging content. If you have a close connection to a subject, you are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject. But you must make sure that your edits are verified by reliable sources and are unbiased.

Here's a partial summary of our plain and simple conflict of interest guide:

  • Be transparent about your conflict of interest.
  • Do not edit articles about yourself, your business, or your competitors.
  • 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 promote, whitewash, or sell.
  • If writing a draft, write without bias, as if you don't work for the company or personally know the subject.
  • Get us to review your draft.
  • Work with us and we'll work with you.

Please read the whole guide. Please see also Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, Wikipedia:Verifiability, and Wikipedia:Autobiography.

Thank you. Biker Biker (talk) 13:57, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
