Account blocked because of promotional useEdit

There have been two problems with this account: the account has been used for advertising or promotion, which is contrary to the purpose of Wikipedia, and your username indicates that the account represents a business or other organisation or group or a web site, which is also against policy, as an account must be for just one person. Because of those problems, the account has been blocked indefinitely from editing.

If you intend to make useful contributions about some topic other than your business or organisation, you may request an unblock. To do so, post the text {{unblock-spamun|Your proposed new username|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page. Replace the text "Your proposed new username" with a new username you are willing to use. See Special:CentralAuth to search for available usernames. Your new username will need to meet our username policy. Replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason to be unblocked. In that reason, you must:

  • Convince us that you understand the reason for your block and that you will not repeat the kind of edits for which you were blocked.
  • Describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked.
If you believe this block was made in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:45, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
This blocked user's request to be unblocked to request a change in username has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request.

Requested username:

Request reason:

I wish to update incorrect information

Decline reason:

Procedural decline only. This unblock request has been open for more than two weeks but has not proven sufficiently convincing for any reviewing administrator to take action. You are welcome to request a new block review if you substantially reword your request. Yamla (talk) 12:35, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Do you understand what was problematic about your edits, and why that won't be permitted? What do you intend to edit about if unblocked? 331dot (talk) 10:45, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Re "incorrect information" it would probably be best if you do not edit directly given your connection with the subject. You may suggest edits on the article talk page. I suppose red and heed WP:COI and WP:PAID are reasonable expectations. Also, we will need content not sourced from the subject. We will need information cited from reliable sources that are unconnected with the subject and have a reputation for fact checking. Can you provide such information.-- Dlohcierekim (talk) 13:46, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

I’m sorry if the information that I provided was viewed as spam. I am the owner of several websites and do not have any intention of promoting them via Wikipedia. As I was unsure about how the system works here, I inadvertently referred to the same link several times on the same article and consequently the update that I was trying to achieve probably set off the warning. The Wikipedia article that I am referring to is about ring sizes and much of the information is highly inaccurate. I frequently refer to articles on Wikipedia concerning many subjects and find it an invaluable source of information. However I found that the information regarding ring sizes is very misleading and is in serious need of correct and useful information. I have been selling rings for over 40 years and it is obvious that almost all information that is available online is contradictory to any standard of measurement. I don’t think there is much point in posting updates on the talk page as many users including myself are unaware of it’s existence. I feel that the best option is to edit and update the original article so that everyone can benefit. If my username is a problem I am quite willing to change it if required.
