Holiday Swap Disclosure[edit]

Hi Drm310,

Please be advised that I have received no payment, direct or indirect for the writing/editing of the Holiday Swap page.

A copy of this disclosure will be posted on the Holiday Swap talk page - please advise as to whether I need to take any further actions in order to stop the page being deleted.

Regarding the social media pages you have discovered, if you could be a little more specific, maybe I could alleviate your scepticism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by W0tti (talkcontribs) 17:01, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
The WP:PRIVACY policy prevents me from specifying this publicly. I contacted the administrator DGG with my concerns and perhaps he could weigh in on the matter. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 17:11, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
What I suggested doing in this case , and what is being done, is to deal with the article in our usual fashion, which in this case is the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Holiday Swap (2nd nomination). Articles as promotional as this, will almost always be removed no matter who wrote it. DGG ( talk ) 18:19, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

@Houston-media: Please review Wikipedia:Notability (organizations and companies). A company is generally considered notable if it has been the subject of significant coverage in reliable, independent secondary sources. Trivial or incidental coverage of a subject by secondary sources is not sufficient to establish notability. All content must be verifiable. If no independent, third-party, reliable sources can be found on a topic, then Wikipedia should not have an article on it.
The sources you provided have only brief mentions of the company, so they lack the required depth of coverage to establish it as notable. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 14:43, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

108th Aviation[edit]

Sir or Ma'am,

I am a member of the 1-108th Aviation, Kansas Army National Guard.

I am direct copying the information from the Unit History, attempting to update the Regiment's Wikipedia Page to contain accurate information and not be blank and empty.

Please let me know how I can help others who may be seeking out the History of this Regiment via Wikipedia. If needed, I can gladly provide my .mil email address and Office Phone Number to corroborate my authenticity.

Thanks in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Coigligh (talkcontribs) 11:53, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

For starters, I would review Wikipedia's plain and simple conflict of interest guide. We advise users not to edit articles where they have a personal or professional connection with the topic. It is not prohibited outright, but discouraged because of the inherent difficulty in adhering to the required neutral point of view.
You should also place this code on your userpage (User:Coigligh):
{{UserboxCOI
|1=108th Aviation Regiment (United States)
}}
This will visibly disclose your connection to this topic. Other users will appreciate your honesty as a sign of good faith.
Most importantly, you cannot post copyrighted material on Wikipedia even if you are the copyright holder, unless special licensing permissions are in place. In short, a copyright owner cannot offer Wikipedia a one-time license for use. Rather, the copyright to the material has to be released – permanently and irrevocably – into the public domain or under a free copyright license that is compatible with Wikipedia's licenses. This is because Wikipedia aims to be freely distributable and copyable by anyone, so all content must be licensed for that purpose. You can learn more about this policy at Wikipedia:Copyrights.
If you'd like to use the copyrighted content in an article, you can follow the instructions at Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission on how to obtain the proper licensing. If you are the copyright holder, refer to Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for how to grant us permission to use your content. Alternatively, you could write a new article that does not closely paraphrase the material available online. See Wikipedia:Copying text from other sources for more information. However, be aware that any content you submit can be edited by other users at any time, and can change substantially over time. Article content is arrived at by consensus, and no single editor has any right of sole ownership or editorial control.
My recommendation is that you use the article's talk page and use the {{request edit}} template to post your proposed changes for other editors to review. This will guarantee that an impartial third party will critique your additions, and make any changes that will lessen the likelihood that they are challenged in the future. Good luck. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 14:36, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Problematic username[edit]

Hi there, Vayyar2019 seems to have an organization for a username and links to that company from his userpage. They also seemed destined to violate COI rules, ARBIPA and a bunch of other stuff which gets newbies templated to death. Mind taking a look? Hydromania (talk) 17:21, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

It's a pretty obvious WP:CORPNAME problem, and the userpage is spam and can't be left up. Aside from the warning you left them already, there's not much to do until they (hopefully) change their username. If they don't, I would take it to UAA. If they do, I'd remind them of WP:COI and WP:PAID. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 17:45, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I just didn't want to bite, as they seem to so far be editing constructively and don't seem to be an SPA. Hydromania (talk) 17:58, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

City of Clyde Texas[edit]

I am working on writing new material so please be patient. This is my job but I only work part-time. The City Administrator just wanted our material to reflect more accurate information about the City of Clyde, Texas. City of Clyde (talk) 15:48, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

@City of Clyde: You should be aware of a few important points:
  1. Copyrighted material that has not been properly released is not allowed on Wikipedia - not even for a short time. Copyright violations are removed as soon as they are discovered.
  2. Your account name violates Wikipedia's username policy. We do not allow accounts to represent organizations, only individuals. Please request a change of username, as your account as it's currently named will be blocked from editing.
  3. Article content is not owned or controlled by the subject of the article. Please be aware that any content you submit can be changed by other users, perhaps substantially over time.
  4. We discourage users from directly editing articles where they have an inherent conflict of interest. Instead we advise them to request changes on the article talk page with the {{request edit}} template.
  5. As you have stated that you are working for the city, you will need to declare yourself as a paid editor per Wikipedia's paid editing disclosure policy.
  6. Wikipedia expects that content added is verifiable by providing citations to reliable sources that are independent of the article's subject. Primary sources can be used for basic facts and figures, but not interpretations of those facts.

Signing posts[edit]

Tks for letting me know about signing articles. Saskatoon, by the way, had an excellent tram system, which seems to have been torn out for no other reason than "going along with (er, modern???) trends." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tramfish (talkcontribs) 15:32, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes, the streetcar system was discontinued sometime in the 1950s... long before I was born. By the way, you didn't sign your comment above... --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 16:05, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
