Thank you. I am gaining knowledge of fairly advanced orthopedic treatment and believe it is appropriate for Wikipedia; I just hope I can write it in the style required. Tom Gavea (talk) 21:09, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Widefox; talk 10:31, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, Tom Gavea. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with some of the people, places or things you have written about on Wikipedia, you may have a conflict of interest. People with a conflict of interest may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic. For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, see the conflict of interest guideline and frequently asked questions for organizations. In particular, please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, its competitors, or projects and products you or they are involved with;
  • instead, propose changes on the talk pages of affected articles (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, the Wikimedia Foundation'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.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing, and autobiographies. Can you explain this edit [1] ? Do you have any connection with that account? Is it yours? I notice you made 10 edits then David W. Lowry and LLamasoft‎ . Those articles have been edited by editors with a COI, you have not disclosed one - do you have one? Widefox; talk 10:47, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
