Please do not add commercial links or links to your own private websites to Wikipedia, as you did in Balanced scorecard. Wikipedia is not a vehicle for advertising or a mere collection of external links. You are, however, encouraged to add content instead of links as long as the content abides by our policies and guidelines. If you feel the link should be added to the article, then please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it. See the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. Thanks. --AbsolutDan (talk) 01:36, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Hello - in response to your message on my talk page, the "References" section is intended for sources of information that were/are used to write the article. Furthermore, the link in question dumps the reader off to a commercial offering at the end of the page, which is generally frowned upon here. I hope this explains the reason for my removal of the link. --AbsolutDan (talk) 02:14, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Parveson! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,643 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

June 2011[edit]

Your addition to Ra has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other websites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of article content such as sentences or images. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. In a addition, this was what we call original research - see WP:NOR as the book reerenced, or at least the page referenced, doesn't mention Ra. We also should not use words that suggest the biblical accounts were actual history Dougweller (talk) 20:02, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Solar cooker, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. These weren't minor edits [1] Dougweller (talk) 20:55, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Fair use[edit]

How did you find that subpage? I don't think I even knew it existed. Anyway, fair use is a bit tricky. Read Wikipedia:Non-free content. One problem is that we have over three million articles, so a quote used many times raises the question of whether it is fair use. A short quote in an article, in quotation marks, with inline citation - see WP:CITE including page number, is fine. Several quotes from the same source, probably not. You also need to understand that we are pretty strict about paraphrase. See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing - don't take the bit about it not being policy too seriously, close paraphrase gets deleted and editors who ignore it do it at their own risk. I'm not suggesting you would do that of course. If you have questions about specific edits please use my talk page, not that subpage which I think I'll delete.

2010 Flash Crash[edit]

Your personal assessment of the market is more than likely accurate. However, being your own view, not supported by any external sources, it doesn't belong on Wikipedia. Owen× 17:50, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited National Presbyterian Church, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Greystone (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)
