April 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to University of Otago appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe this important core policy. Thank you. XLerate (talk) 12:40, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to University of Otago. While objective prose about products or services is acceptable, Wikipedia is not intended to be a vehicle for advertising or promotion. Thank you. XLerate (talk) 00:27, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to add promotional material to Wikipedia, as you did to University of Otago, you will be blocked from editing. XLerate (talk) 21:40, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. XLerate (talk) 21:43, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
