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 following the 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.
A cup of coffee for you!

Hello SolTimor! I am member of a newsgroup for Timor-Leste and got a lot of news from there, but I never heard of Verde Revolucionária de Timor Leste or that Alfredo Pires will candidate. I couldn't find sth about that online, except of Facebook. Do you have any reliable source for that? Greetings from Germany, --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 05:54, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
