January 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Theroadislong (talk) 21:06, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of published material to articles as you apparently did to Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto. Please cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. MikeWazowski (talk) 23:58, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

In response to your feedback[edit]

As the warning on your talkpage suggests, please see the guidelines for external links and What Wikipedia is not pages. The contribution where you submitted several links overloads the page, although I assume they were good intentions. The welcome page may be helpful as well.

Please do not add unsourced or original content, as you did with this edit to Pride Week (Toronto). Doing so violates Wikipedia's verifiability policy. If you continue to do so, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Calabe1992 01:52, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

COI[edit]

McKinnon, it is pretty obvious from your edits that you are here to promote Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto. I'm at least the second editor to point this out: there must be something to it. I've already blocked your other account, SMCKINNON SBCCT (talk · contribs) (and FWIW, editor also uses 173.32.178.184 (talk · contribs · info · WHOIS)), and now I would like to give you some advice. A quick Google search easily reveals that you have everything to do with the organization, and if you continue to edit the article in a non-neutral manner, I will block you for abusing Wikipedia for promotional purposes--and you may find that the article you cherish is disfigured by a big, fat CONFLICT OF INTEREST tag. I hope you understand or will come to understand the difference between objective information and promotional content. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 16:38, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

I highly recommend reading Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations and WP:COI to understand Wikipedia's conflict of interest guidelines. Ask if any part of those two pages is unclear. Cloveapple (talk) 19:09, 9 March 2012 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm Musicfreak7676. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made to List of Days of our Lives cast members, because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks!

Hello, I'm Musicfreak7676. I noticed that you made a change to an article, List of Days of our Lives cast members, but you didn't provide a reliable source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks,

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to List of Days of our Lives cast members does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Musicfreak7676 my talk page! 21:40, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:TAFMF LOGO.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:TAFMF LOGO.jpg, which you've attributed to Paris Roger www.torontoafricanfilmmusicfest.com. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Dianna (talk) 14:09, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Notice of Conflict of interest noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Conflict of interest/Noticeboard regarding a possible conflict of interest incident in which you may be involved. Thank you. LaMona (talk) 16:00, 9 April 2016 (UTC) Lamona,

I wanted to discuss this situation, I wanted to clarify your concerns, the information pertaining to Caribana page is nothing that is conflict of interest nor anything promotional, this information is valid and accredited and wasn't deemed promotional as it has been on that page for last 3 years and now a concern.

Now on to my page , there is nothing promotional, how you expect to get information if you do not have contributions from people involved to input them in. Yes me being a CEO of my company we own the festival and have new sources and reliable citing in the document.

   You should take these comments to the page linked in the message I left you. We can discuss it there so that the noticeboard is aware of the discussion. LaMona (talk) 00:33, 10 April 2016 (UTC) SMCKINNON (talk) 07:24, 10 April 2016 (UTC)SMCKINNON
