  Please do not introduce incorrect information into articles, as you did to Tijuana. Your edits could be interpreted as vandalism and have been reverted. If you believe the information you added was correct, please cite references or sources or discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them again. If you would like to experiment, use your sandbox. Thank you. Caius G. (talk) 20:00, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Edit

Thank you for your helpful guidance for me a newbie poster, although i am most definately not a vandal! Re Stonyhurst College I had to go back several times to incporporate the original posters comments which were factually incorrect- plus his refs were right but i did not think i would have to repeat them as you just need to link into his refs to see how his comments were misleading!I then added some more- i did say that the first letter quoted was published in the catholic herald december 2 2002 and the second one was published on the blog of Bishop Pat Buckley- just googe him to get his blog. I hope this is ok? regards Monty 330Monty330 (talk)I —Preceding undated comment added 22:18, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I am not sure I understand fully what you are saying. Your edits are unnecessarily long, they quote too much directly, references are inside brackets instead of inline citations, and

Stonyhurst is a very difference place today compared with 40-50 years ago. Nonetheless, in summarising a history, it is important to accept the good AND the bad, and, in particular, give a voice to abused victims who hitherto have largely been ignored or (ahem) swept under the carpet.

is definitely not neutral or appropriate for an encyclopedia. There are also not enough inline citations supporting individual statements. It also reads to me like you may be copying this from another source, rather than something you have written yourself, which is not allowed per WP:COPYPASTE.

Bar Fruit (talk) 21:10, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi Dylsss, I have already submitted the link to the FL DBPR (Florida Department of Business Professional Regulations), and have uploaded documents from this government-run licensing agency with regards to confirmed thoroughbred deaths. I receive these notifications via public records requests. It is unclear to me why you are suppressing the truth, but indeed you are. I have submitted multiple examples to Wikipedia of the results of such public records requests, but you are classifying this as “disruptive”. Your deleting them is not only egregiously inappropriate, but counter to what’s Wikipedia stands for- which is disseminating the truth from all perspectives. Are you truly impartial? Kindly leave my edits. Else, Wikipedia’s Gulfstream Park page is just a free advertisement for the racing industry. Thank you.

@Bar Fruit: Thank you for contacting me via my talk page. Personally, I think horse racing is a cruel industry, which results in unnecessary horse deaths. However, there are multiple issues with your edits, which is why they have been reverted by me and other Wikipedians multiple times. Firstly

Gulfstream Park regularly edits the replays of horses with catastrophic breakdowns. Below is a small sample of this activity: AUGER collapsed 7.8.29 FULL: https://vimeo.com/436599337 EDITED: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlzLtXAqJvc RUN DEVIL “awkward step” 8.20.20 FULL https://vimeo.com/449856744 EDITED https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFeDtDhO0bo ALLURSTRA 8.28.20 Breaks a front leg FULL: https://vimeo.com/452689543 EDITED: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpzxlrIdeq8 CHANNELED’S ANGEL 8.30.20 Breaks a front leg FULL: https://vimeo.com/453111300 EDITED: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VYWdRvjdT0.

Is inappropriate because it violates WP:OR, it has not been cited from any reliable source, it is not encyclopedic, and is your own commentary, Wikipedia does not conduct original research. Secondly

Racetracks have 18 hours to file death confirmations with the FL DBPR of horses killed or found dead on the racetrack. Horses that end up in kill pens to be purchased by kill buyers are not kept track of. There is no legal obligation to report on these horses’ whereabouts, and commonly horses end up on cattle cars on a train, destined for slaughterhouses in Mexico and Canada. While not illegal to slaughter a horse for human consumption in the US, the USDA has defunded inspecting the meat. This is why the death toll will always be higher than what is reported by the racetrack.

is not relevant to the article, nor is it backed up with any sort of citation, also not appropriate for Wikipedia.

2019: 58 deaths of thoroughbred horses on this racetrack, as confirmed by the FL DBPR (Florida Department of Business Professional Regulations) pari-mutuel wagering division via public records requests. Http://www.myflorida.com/DBPR/

is uncited, and constitutes WP:ORIGINALRESEARCH, since in your above reply, you state yourself that

I receive these notifications via public records requests

it appears that the death amount is your own research, and you have not cited any source, http://www.myflorida.com/DBPR/ is a dead link for me, and does not link to the amount of horse deaths at this entity.

2020: Through July 30th there are 35 confirmed deaths of thoroughbred horses.

is also uncited. Do not add information without being able to WP:VERIFY it, whenever you make an edit to Wikipedia, it is expected that the statement is verifiable, if it is not, you should expect it to be reverted. I've already reverted 4 times, constituting an edit war, I encourage you to add references, otherwise I will revert it again in 24 hours, or another editer might revert it sooner. Addtionally refernces are not in the correct syntax, they are in plain text. Thank you. Dylsss (talk) 21:53, 3 September 2020 (UTC)



I have carefully reviewed the editing disputes page, your comments, and have repeatedly provided “balancing material” citations, as the Gulfstream Park page is biased. I have also edited what I provided, as I am learning the Wikipedia rules and am interested in adhering to them. Further, I have not deleted a single item from the page. I am being respectful to both you and the site. My material is from the government run licensing agency that keeps track of thoroughbred race horses euthanized on racetracks. The material I have provided is in succinct fashion, and can be fact checked. How are these confirmed deaths that have occurred at Gulfstream Park as a direct result of horse racing, not relevant to the page? If this isn’t “balancing material”, then please explain what is.

The Public Records Act, Chapter 119.07 of the Florida Statutes entitles individuals to submit public records requests to state licensing agencies. [1] Such requests are sent to the Florida Department of Business Professional Regulations (FL DBPR) pari-mutuel wagering division. Racehorse deaths must be reported within 18 hours to the FL DBPR according to Florida statue rule 61D-2.023(7)(c), [2] , and in 2019 Gulfstream Park has reported 58 deaths to the FL DBPR. The public is entitled to this information. [3] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bar Fruit (talkcontribs) 18:55, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

@Bar Fruit: You have not reviewed the links to Wikipedia policies which I have given to you, so instead I will quote the important parts On Wikipedia, an inline citation refers to a citation in a page's text placed by any method that allows the reader to associate a given bit of material with specific reliable source(s) that support it. Your citation verifies that I can make a public access request, not how many horses have died at this venue, and as such, does not satisfy the verifiability policy which says In the English Wikipedia, verifiability means other people using the encyclopedia can check that the information comes from a reliable source. as said in the policy All content must be verifiable. The burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with the editor who adds or restores material, the burden lies with you, not me. Additionally Source material must have been published, the definition of which for our purposes is "made available to the public in some form"., the material you're adding, you claim comes from a public access request, and as such is not published or verified by an inline citation. The verifiability policy also says Any material lacking a reliable source directly supporting it may be removed and should not be restored without an inline citation to a reliable source., which is why I've removed the material, and why you should not be adding it back unless you can satisfy the Wikipedia policies verifiability and original research. Your material is original research, because as said in the policy The phrase "original research" (OR) is used on Wikipedia to refer to material—such as facts, allegations, and ideas—for which no reliable, published sources exist, it also says Do not add unsourced material from your personal experience, because that would make Wikipedia a primary source of that material., which is what you are doing. While what you are adding may be true, the original research policy says Even if you're sure something is true, it must be verifiable before you can add it.. You seem to be a single-purpose account focused only on adding this material, rather than contributing constructively to Wikipedia. Dylsss (talk) 20:07, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
Also, this is not "balancing material", NPOV is about how we write about and summarise what reliable sources have said, but your material has no source, so NPOV doesn't apply here, and adding negative unverifiable content does not somehow make an article more neutral. Neither is your information "confirmed", it's confirmed by you, so it is primary original research. Dylsss (talk) 20:37, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you help me change my user name and publish my article for my new client? JabrielAtOmoMusicGroup (talk) 18:42, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@JabrielAtOmoMusicGroup: Hello, I do not have the rights to change your username, only users in the global renamers group or stewards can change usernames on Wikimedia projects, and as said on your talk page, you do not need to change your username. While I do have the rights to move your draft to article space, it should be reviewed by an Articles for Creation reviewer, you can submit it for a review by placing {{subst:submit}} at the top of the article and clicking the "Submit your draft for review!" button, there is however currently a backlog of 3,300 articles waiting for review, so it could take up to 2 months for the draft to be reviewed. Additionally, I do not believe this person is notable enough to have a Wikipedia article per WP:MUSICBIO and WP:ARTIST. Thanks. Dylsss (talk) 20:25, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Jessica HarpEdit

Hello Dylsss, I note you removed the update I made to this article yesterday; the Myspace was nothing to do with me, but given that her "official site" is now evidently defunct, and she has the link to the site I added at the top of her Twitter bio, I can't help but feel that it's more-or-less her "official site" now. Not the end of the world either way, but just thought the context might carry some value.78.144.76.44 (talk) 15:31, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Biased viewsEdit

Hi Dylsss

The amendments made by me to two of the wikipedia pages are factually and widely accepted view and therefore. The French Govt. Chevalier award is not given to any tom, dick and Harry and just becuase an actor comes from outside the Bollywood fraternity, edits which is widely accepted and does not cause harm and hurt to anyone should not be rejected. this could create an impression that the contents are controlled to promote a particular view point and you must be aware, majority of media course in the World is biased and wither support a school of thought or of a particular Government or organisation.

The edits on Jayalalitha, a popular Chief Minister of the State of Tamil Nadu in India, is all factual and can be verified from multiple sources.

Please therefore accept the edits made by me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by REALPATRIOTICINDIAN (talkcontribs) 00:02, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Rollback grantedEdit

Hi Dylsss. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! ~Swarm~ {sting} 01:28, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Re- Sexual OrientationEdit

The Sexual Preference (Early 2000's Term) page is missing, and no longer redirects to the page (Modern Term) Sexual Orientation. There's current political unrest causing old definitions labeled as offensive to be deleted despite there being historical significance for outdated terms. Wikipedia has a duty to denote all changes to history, including those which might be seen as offensive or inappropriate. I have reason to believe it may be best to review edits to the Sexual Orientation page without official federal linguistic and librarian feedback as to which term should be utilized. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AKB769 (talkcontribs) 20:46, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@AKB769: I'm not an invloved editor and I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean. Regardless, blanking a page is disruptive in most cases. Sexual preference does redirect to Sexual orientation, Sexual Preference with a capital P redirects to a book. Dylsss (talk) 21:10, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Not really used to the layout, but when I searched with Sexual Preference, it autodirected to Orientation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by AKB769 (talkcontribs) 21:20, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Feedback Regarding My Request For a Rebuild of Musical Acts That Played the OmniEdit

Yea, so you have classified my desired page reset as irrelevant and directory material, appears you are the judge of relevancy. In that case, type in Wrigley field, and notice the entire section of musical acts that happened at that arena. Try that on a few more stadiums, and perhaps question yourself perhaps its just you....its on the majority of stadium/arena pages that host concerts, but ONLY stricken from the Omni page. People actually USE that reference. I hate basketball. I find no relevance in it whatsoever, and to me the Omni was a concert hall. Quite relevant and NOT directory material as I feel a sports team should be. And look over my lack of knowledge with regard to how to navigate through this rat nest of a site and not be rude with my incorrect placement of information, I will figure it out. Its not a paying job so I probably will not put that many hours in. You can delete this message as soon as you read it and there is no need to reply. But if you removed it, ask yourself why it was removed from that one, and the others were left alone. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Krautank (talkcontribs) 02:42, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia Page - WPI Energy SolutionsEdit

Hi Dylsss,

I am requesting some guidance and/or assistance with my draft on WPI Energy Solutions. This is a company I am trying to write about. It is a private family owned company.

I looked at Exterran Energy's Wikipedia page and tried to write similar to their page.

Any guidance or assistance would be greatly appreciated on how to get this page to not be such an advertising piece.

Thank you very much! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ckentstow (talkcontribs) 18:52, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Ckentstow, the Exterran Corporation is better, but it's not a great example either. As I've said, the PR language needs to be removed, the use of "solutions" which is a buzzword, needs to be removed, the use of "we", "us" and "our" throughout needs to be removed, this isn't your page, there is no "we". Since early 2015, WPI and TIW had been working hard to build-out their product and service infrastructure across the entire U.S. and Canada., product and service infrastructure are buzzwords, how has this company been "working hard", this is subjective and needs to be removed. better serve our customers in the oil and gas exploration and production industry., this whole line is promotional and should be removed. The whole operations section is trivial and should just be removed all together. maximizing productivity and uptime by partnering with some of the largest names in gas compression to offer solutions for the most demanding applications, this whole line is blatantly promotional. The whole overview section is a copyright violation and needs to be re-written so that it isn't. And finally the references aren't enough to meet the Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies) guidelines, as the references are the companies website, press releases, and an entry in a business directory, none of which establish notability.

Ruby Mace caps for England under 17sEdit

Hi, hope all is well can you please tell me where you have been finding the extra two caps and goal for Ruby Mace from as I've looked on both the FA website and UEFA and they only have her playing twice and scoring the one goal. If you have found it elsewhere then I'm more than happy to keep it as four caps and two goals. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reganw77 (talkcontribs) 23:18, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

Of courseEdit

If the channel only has one subscriber, how do I get more people to know about the channel and subscribe to it? Oh, also, you should subscribe to the channel, because it only has one subscriber, so how do I get more people to know about the channel and subscribe to it?

@YacinePedia: That's the point, Wikipedia is not for promotion, it is not for getting people to subscribe to your YouTube channel. The actual amount of subscribers doesn't matter, but the fact that the channel has so few subscribers, indicates that there is not chance of the topic being notable. Dylsss(talk • contribs) 20:14, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

OkayEdit

At least that doesn't matter, but maybe if the series wasn't discontinued, the channel could get a Million Subscribers in 2030 or after a decade, but I don't think I'm gonna keep my hopes up too high. Anyways, bye. YacinePedia (talk) 21:30, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

Dimensional InsightEdit

With respect, Dylsss, I am surprised you would write that "the previous revision was not vandalism"! Removing almost an entire article, which has been there for many years and has been reviewed by dozens of editors, is not vandalism? And, again with respect, your description of sections that provide factual information as "promotional" has me scratching my head. By your definition, 90% of what is on the Wikipedia could be labeled "promotional"! I am not sure why this particular page is suddenly under attack, but it is nonetheless suspicious. Pasquale (talk) 18:31, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Pasquale, any good faith effort to improve the encyclopedia is not vandalism, if you are suggesting that Mean as custard was acting in bad faith, well, I'm not sure how you could even argue that, nor would that be a good idea.
In terms of the actual article content, Dimensional Insight's products receive a high level of user feedback. doesn't mean anything, it is just fluff. Diver can be delivered as an on-premise installation, with the complete Diver suite of tools; an appliance installed on-premise but managed by Dimensional Insight; or a software-as-a-service application. has been tagged as CN since 2014. Dylsss(talk contribs) 18:41, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
Regarding your second deletion, Dylsss, that sentence seems to be a simple statement of the different ways their flagship product can be made available, so hardly a promotional pitch. I'll see if I can find a suitable citation for it. As for the first sentence you deleted, far from being fluff, it seems to serve as an introduction to a paragraph about user satisfaction awards. As you may know, in many lines of business, user satisfaction is carefully monitored and quantitatively measured, not by the companies themselves, but by independent services, such as the ones referred to in that very same paragraph. By the way, the leader in that category of independent services is KLAS Enterprises, LLC, whose "Best in KLAS" award is mentioned in several software companies' pages on the Wikipedia, but for which there is no Wikipedia article. As I recall, I created one myself some 10 years ago, but it was promptly ganged up on and permanently deleted by a bunch of Admins, who, quite honestly, were completely ignorant on the subject matter. Make no mistake about it, the Wikipedia is poorer, not better, for that omission. Pasquale (talk) 21:51, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Trans Provincial Airlines (TPA)Edit

Hi! Only to point out that the correct denomination is Trans Provincial Airlines (TPA) and not Trans-Provincial Airlines! As you please. Sincerely,Chesipiero (talk) 18:45, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Article titles should be as concise as possible, adding (TPA) is over detailed as the title describes the article fine without it. For example, TPA is a disambiguation page, it could mean multiple things, so adding TPA wouldn't help the reader understand the article contents. If the airline is known as TPA, then the proper way would be to add (TPA) to the bolded name in the lead of the article, e.g. like in British Airways, All Nippon Airways or Japan Airlines. If you want, you can move the page to Trans Provincial Airlines, but please do this using the move tool, you can do this by clicking on the move link under the "more" menu at the top of a page, this moves the page history with it.

You will need to include license information and source. It also looks like the images was previously published on the internet, it might be tagged as missing permission or a copyright violation. I would recommend sending an email to the email response team confirming permission, however this will have to be sent by "Paula Goldman" as they appear the author of the photo.

Removed addition to Oded StarkEdit

Hi Dylsss! I recently updated Wikipedia webpage of Oded Stark, which was then swiftly removed by you due to copyright issues. I updated this webpage on Oded Stark's direct request (he wrote the update, which I merely uploaded). Because the update has been dismissed, Oded prefers that there is no webpage of him on Wikipedia at all (if it can't be his way, than better have nothing). Can the current version of Oded Stark be removed altogether? If not, then perhaps we could solve the copyright problems? I looked at Wikipedia:Declaration of consent for all enquiries, which I could get signed by Oded Stark, but I do not know which specific parts of my update of Oded Stark caused copyright issues, and thus do not know what to include in the Declaration. I understand that I should figure this out by myself, but this is simply too demanding, given that I have no experience with editing Wikipedia whatsoever. I was only requested by Oded to edit this one particular webpage. The "entry cost" of learning many Wikipedia rules just for the purpose of editing a single webpage is too much for me.

Sweterkowiec (talk) 21:37, 8 January 2021 (UTC)Sweterkowiec

Sweterkowiec, deletion of biographies of living persons can happen after being discussed at WP:AfD, where the subject has requested deletion who are relatively unknown may be deleted if there is no consensus or no opposition to poorly sourced, relatively unknown BLPs, see WP:BLPREQUESTDELETE. You can nominate the article for deletion and argue why the article should be deleted in regards to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. You should also see Wikipedia:Notability (academics), though I am less familiar with this notability guideline. In terms of freely licensing the copyrighted material, you can see the problem sources at Wikipedia:Copyright problems/2020 November 1. I doubt that the subject would have the authority to freely license everything there, and I don't think that this would be a good idea anyway, as using what a subject has written themselves is rarely appropriate. Dylsss(talk contribs) 00:47, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
Dear Dylsss, I saw what copyright issues caused problems in the revised entry on Oded Stark at Wikipedia:Copyright problems/2020 November 1. However, I do not understand how references to original sources (journal articles) can be causing copyright problems, especially that virtually every entry on an academic professor involves such references, and that the previous version of the entry on Oded Stark, which I tried to revise, contains such references. Or am I taking that what caused copyright issues at Wikipedia:Copyright problems/2020 November 1 too literally? Are references the problem or the text of the revised entry which reveals too much from what is inside copyrighted journal articles? If this is the latter, I can understand that.

Misunderstanding concerning my draft of "Carl Orff Foundation"?Edit

Hello Dylsss, in my opinion I did not violate any copyrights concerning my new draft of "Carl Orff Foundation". On the contrary, I rahter think there that there could be a misunderstanding: My name is Rainer Kotzian, I am member of the Board of Directors of the Carl Orff Foundation (www.orff.de - please also refer here: https://www.orff.de/en/institutions/carl-orff-foundation/statutory-organs/) and I am also the author of the contents of our website. So actually I did not violate any copyrights, since I also wrote the texts included on our website. Can you please tell me what to do now in order to solve this misunderstanding? Thanks! Greetings, Rainer (talk) 17:35, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

RainerKotzian, either the website needs to explicitly say that the copied text is licensed under a free license, or you can donate the text under a free license by emailing permissions-en wikimedia.org and following the instructions at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. That said, articles should summarise coverage from independent sources, so copying from other sources, even if they are freely licensed, is not always the best idea. Dylsss(talk contribs) 18:21, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Hello! Thank you very much for your ideas, suggestions and information. I have re-worked and written the article now completely new in order to avoid any direct copies and also to give more stringent information. Is it ok now in your opinion? --RainerKotzian (talk) 17:06, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

PlayStation imagesEdit

Please can you hold off the deletions? I don't understand your rationales - there are no other photos of Ian Hetherington on the internet, I cropped that from a 1990 BBC documentary, the same goes with Ken Kutaragi. The advertisement will also come into place when I finish writing the marketing section. Deleting it now would be pointless. I'm flabbergasted to why you would want to delete very pertinent images to the article. ♦ jaguar 23:43, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Jaguar. No, why would we leave a possible legal liability, either it meets WP:NFCC and is kept, or it doesn't and is deleted. It's trivial to simply re-upload or ask for it to be undeleted at a later date. Regarding the rationale for the images of living people, WP:NFCC specifically states no free equivalent is available, or could be created. These are living people, so an image could be created, and there are free images on Commons of Ken Kutaragi, so there is no doubt that it fails WP:NFCC#1, unless there is any reason why those would not be adequate? WP:NFC#UUI further explains and supports my rationale, it says that the following is unacceptable use for images. Pictures of people still alive, groups still active, and buildings still standing; provided that taking a new free picture as a replacement (which is almost always considered possible) would serve the same encyclopedic purpose as the non-free image. This includes non-free promotional images. Dylsss(talk contribs) 00:07, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
There are no free images of Hetherington, what rationale do I put on that image? Look Dylsss I'm not being funny but you must understand it's quite infuriating to have half the images under threat of deletion when two of them are about to be saved. I know you're more knowledgeable on copyright than I am - could you not have put the correct rationale on Hetherington's image instead of nominating it? Kutaragi I can understand as there are other free images. ♦ jaguar 00:18, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
I don't think there is a correct rationale, I think it should be deleted, images like these are routinely deleted for failing WP:NFCC#1, for example see Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2021 January 7#File:Bikay1.jpg or Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2020 November 3#File:2020 Ganja bombings.jpg and via {{di-replaceable fair use}}. The rationale for WP:NFCC#1, would be that e.g. the person is deceased, places which no longer exist, things which can't be adequatley or reasonably be recreated e.g. logos, album covers, video game screenshots. Dylsss(talk contribs) 01:01, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Just to add. Wikipedia:Non-free content specifically states "Non-free content should not be used when a freely licensed file that serves the same purpose can reasonably be expected to be uploaded, as is the case for almost all portraits of living people." Even if you cannot find an image of a living person, the fact that one could be created (as the person is still alive) means that you cannot use a non-free image. -- Whpq (talk) 01:02, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

Request on 17:59:45, 16 February 2021 for assistance on AfC submission by 68.13.195.94Edit


I am requesting assistance because it appears that we need to change the name of our user account. Also, we have been blocked due to advertising? or something like that? Unless someone has hacked our account, I can assure you that we have not been doing any advertising at all. As a matter of fact, our technology is not the kind that you CAN advertise. It is not a click and buy type of offering. We are a pioneering IPaaS tech start up and are on the frontier of some awesome innovation. WE were looking to have a presence to inspire collaboration on tech and humanitarian problem-solving for some of the major SDG goals. Perhaps if you could assist, we would be able to make the necessary changes for a post about the problems being solved and the innovation of technology working towards "Transparency for all". That is a humanitarian theme that a lot of people are working on and not an advertising slogan. But I can understand how this might come across if you are not aware, so if we can work together, hopefully we can manage to edit our piece to fit the wikipedia guidelines. Thank you!  -Nancy

Laumont Truffle, no you don't, that's link spamming, and you will be blocked from editing if you continue. This is beside that fact that your username is a clear violation of the username policy as a promotional username representing a company, and you could be blocked based on that alone, I'd suggest that you request a username change to a username which represents an individual at Special:GlobalRenameRequest if you intend to follow the conflict of interest guidelines and contribute constructively.

I am not an administrator. I doubt the validity of this template, especially in this case.
