Wagon Wheel, Oxnard, California[edit]

Good work on the Wagon Wheel, Oxnard, California article. FYI: There was an article in today's LA Times on the future plans.

You should pick one of the interesting facts from the article and nominate it for the Wikipedia:Did you know section on the Wikipedia's Main Page. BlankVerse 12:33, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

San Buenaventura Conservancy[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of San Buenaventura Conservancy, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.sbconservancy.org/mission-statement.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.)

Secretary of the Interior's Standards[edit]

Hi there, Schafphoto. Thank you for your contribution at Articles for Creation. Unfortunately, copying and pasting text from other sources is not allowed on Wikipedia. I understand that you are trying to make the article both precise and accurate, which is admirable. However, it needs to be reworded before it can be accepted on Wikipedia.

Because the article was in violation of copyright, I've deleted it. Please do not let this discourage you—you should feel free to recreate the article in your own words. If you want a place to find friendly help in creating this article, I would suggest you check out WP:Teahouse. Also, please feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you have any further questions. GorillaWarfare (talk) 16:32, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Conflict of interest and username warning[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that your username, "Schafphoto", may not comply with our username policy. Please note that you may not use a username that represents the name of a company, group, organization, product, or website. Examples of usernames that are not allowed include "XYZ Company", "MyWidgetsUSA.com", and "Trammel Museum of Art". However, you are invited to use a username that contains such a name if it identifies you personally, such as "Mark at WidgetsUSA", "Jack Smith at the XY Foundation", and "WidgetFan87".

Please also note that Wikipedia does not allow accounts to be shared by multiple people, and that you may not advocate for or promote any company, group, organization, product, or website, regardless of your username. Moreover, I recommend that you read our conflict of interest guideline. If you are a single individual and are willing to contribute to Wikipedia in an unbiased manner, please create a new account or request a username change that complies with our username policy. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. Thank you.

Information icon Hello, Schafphoto. 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.
  • 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.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies. Note that Wikipedia's terms of use require disclosure of your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation.

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.
