I noticed that you edited Sabrina Jeffries and suspect from your username that you may be the author in question (if so, thank you for many hours of enjoyment!). For your own protection, you may want to read the conflict of interest guidelines, just to make sure that you don't inadvertently break the rules. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Wikipedia editing!

April 2009[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Sabrina Jeffries has been reverted.

Your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove unwanted links and spam from Wikipedia. The external link you added or changed is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. The external links I reverted were matching the following regex rule(s): \bfacebook\.com (links: http://www.facebook.com/pages/sabrina-jeffries/128419930393?ref=ts/).

If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.

Essentially, what the robot is trying to say is that we aren't allowed to post links to Facebook. Karanacs (talk) 16:51, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia, as you did to Sabrina Jeffries. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include (but are not limited to) links to personal web sites, links to web sites with which you are affiliated, and links that attract visitors to a web site or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Since Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by some search engines, including Google. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page rather than re-adding it.

COI guidelines explained a little more[edit]

Hi Ms Jeffries. So far, you haven't done any editing that would violate the conflict of interest policy. It is fine for you to change uncontroversial facts (like a birthdate). The policy is really warning more about potentially controversial edits. It would be unwise to remove potentially negative information that was published in a reliable source (like a newspaper or magazine). It would likewise be unwise to fill the text with flowery language describing how wonderful an author you are - that would be self-promotion. If you ever have a question on whether a potential edit would be inappropriate for you to make, you can leave a post on the article talk page. There are several of us who watch the page and would be able to evaluate your proposal as neutral editors and then make the changes in the article. Happy editing!
