Hello, Roserunner12xc. 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, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.
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.
- Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
- 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. --Orange Mike | Talk 02:27, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for the input Orange Mike. All I want to do is add the company name (Moore Engineers) in the box on the right side next to service engineer. And I have substantial supporting evidence to back this up. What more can I do to get this addition to stay on the page? Roserunner12xc (talk) 11:55, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
- Since you apparently have a conflict-of-interest with Lucas Oil Stadium, you should not be editing that article yourself. Make suggestions for changes at Talk:Lucas Oil Stadium, and provide references to published sources for those changes; and clearly identify your conflict of interest when you do so. (It's also a good idea to avoid braggartry like Our stadium wouldn't be the quality it is today if it weren't for Moore Engineers continued service, as we are not to be used for promotional edits. --Orange Mike | Talk 16:04, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
At least I put factual information on the page. As an editor your job is to put true information, with supported evidence, on the web for users to view and learn, not to police others so strictly that you change correct revisions back to incorrect information with no supportive evidence. You changed the page to say Walter P Moore Engineers and Consultants were the service Engineer on the project when that is entirely untrue. Moore Engineers P.C. was the service engineer of record and Walter P Moore Engineers and Consultants were the primary structural engineer. If I'm not allowed to edit the page then pleas at least get the correct information on it. Here are some supporting web sites so you can correct your mistake:
- http://www.lucasoilstadium.com/about.aspx - under "facts and information"
- Thank you. I only put 2 in from your article talk page list. It seems they won an award for it as well. If anyone reverts now they should end up in a deep hole. Some editors are just anal about COI and reliable sources is all. You shouldn't have any more problems.--Canoe1967 (talk) 20:10, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
