Sorry, but this simply will not do[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Because we have a policy against usernames that give the impression that the account represents a group, organization or website, I have blocked this account; please take a moment to create a new account with a username that represents only yourself as an individual and which complies with our username policy. It also appears that your account is intended to be used for the purpose of telling the world about an organization, person or cause that you consider worthwhile. Unfortunately, many good causes are not sufficiently notable for their own Wikipedia article, and all users are discouraged from editing in any area where they have an inherent conflict of interest. You may wish to consider one of these alternative outlets.

If your username does not represent a group, organization or website, you may appeal this username block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice.

You may simply create a new account, but you may prefer to change your username to one that complies with our username policy, so that your past contributions are associated with your new username. If you would prefer to change your username, you may appeal this username block by adding the text {{unblock-un|new username|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice. Thank you.

Requested username:

Request reason:

I represent a heritage organisation in Surrey and we have a website which provides free access to primary sources related to the history, culture and communities of Surrey. These are linked to general landing pages describing something of interest related to Places, People and Times connected with Surrey. We are not selling merchandise or promoting a particular cause. I am responsible for content on the website and would therefore be the representative for the organisation. I did not realise there was a usr name policy for Wikipedia and put in what I thought most correctly refelcted the organisation I represent. Having been made aware of the policy I'm prepared to include my name as part of the user name. I hope this is acceptable and that this account can be unblocked.

Decline reason:

Procedural decline; no response to follow up question below for a week. Kuru (talk) 22:07, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, but you recognize that you may NEVER link to your organizations website, use it as a reference, or directly edit any Wikipedia article related to your organization? DP 17:48, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
