Managing a conflict of interest
Hello, Quaveduchess. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Zera Yacob Amha Selassie, you may have a conflict of interest.
All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.
If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:
- Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
- Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
- Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.
For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. Gyrofrog (talk) 15:24, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
- I would encourage you to post your comment on the relevant talk page(s), for example Talk:Zera Yacob Amha Selassie and/or Template talk:Imperial Family of Ethiopia. That way other editors will see it. As the edits involve living people (see WP:BLP) this would need to be corroborated with reliable sources (See WP:RS, WP:THIRDPARTY). -- Gyrofrog (talk) 13:29, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
