Contact information[edit]

I want to talk with Muninnbot, why am I here?[edit]

Muninnbot is not a real person but a bot performing automated edits. You can talk to the human handling this account on this page.

I cannot edit this page![edit]

On 2018-11-07, an administrator semi-protected my talk page because of some vandalism. You can head to User_talk:Tigraan/unprotected_backup to contact me if that affects you.

Simple instructions for new editors[edit]

Although you should probably look at WP:TALK, please at least do the following:

  • For a first contact, create a new subsection: the easy way to do so is to click on the "new section" tab above the editing area.
  • For a follow-up, indent your posts: use ':' to indent once, '::' twice, ':::', etc. - indent once more than the thread you are replying to.
  • Sign your posts, using four tildes (~~~~) at the end of them.

If you refer to a specific existing article page (e.g. Tiger), discussion of general interest should take place on the article talk page (e.g. Talk:Tiger). I will usually know by my watchlist that the page changed, but you can "ping" me by including the code {{U|Tigraan}} in your post and signing it by four tildes (cf. above).

You may still have reasons to contact me more personally, in which case it can be done on either of our talk pages. In that case, please keep the discussion where it started.

Old timers[edit]

I watch all pages that I edit in article/article talk space and user talk pages, except the ones with lots of traffic. In other cases, please ping me if needed.

Khanyisile Motsa[edit]

Hi Tigraan

Thanks for your comments on my article on Khanyisile Motsa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khanyisile_Motsa

Having read the advisory on WP:PAID, I wonder if I have correctly described myself as having a conflict of interest. This is someone that I know and admire and as such I must admit bias and difficulty with NPOV. But I am not paid, a client of or in any business way connected with the subject. (In fact, the opposite is true, any monies flow in the opposite direction.)

Can I renege my conflict of interest declaration and will this ease my ability to provide edits to this very short article?

Thanks again,


tmcann

  • @Tmcann: All paid editors have a conflict of interest, but some unpaid editors can have conflicts of interest, too, due to various reasons (for instance, being a relative of a person, an employee of the company, a follower of a religion, etc.). See WP:COI for details. I do think you should keep your COI disclosure (but not make a paid-contribution disclosure since that is not what happened).
Also, it is better to exercise caution, or to refrain altogether from editing in areas where you have a COI, because it is hard to write from a neutral point of view when you have strong feelings about a subject. (The first draft of the KM article sounded so much like a press release from her foundation that I strongly suspected you were a paid editor; please accept my apologies for jumping to conclusions.)
Although disclosing your COI can expose you to more scrutiny from other editors, your edits will (or should at least) stand or fall on their merits. On the other hand, hiding a necessary COI is grounds for blocking.
Finally, could you take one minute to review our guide about talk page usage? (Here, you failed to create a new section, and signed manually instead of using four tildes ~~~~.) TigraanClick here to contact me 08:18, 16 May 2019 (UTC)


Hi Tigraan
Thanks, I will get this eventually!
As you suggest, I will maintain my COI.
I am continuing to add references and NPOV comments as best I can. But my biggest problem is poor citing as identified by your colleague theroadislong. This is a serious problem in Africa where news internet usage is in its infancy. Wikipedia may need to allow some leniency for African related input?
I am happy to accept syntax related instruction.
Thanks again,

@Tmcann: Wikipedia will not allow some leniency over its fundamental policies (such as verifiability), but we are already aware this leads to a surrepresentation of certain topics (see Wikipedia:Systemic_bias#Availability_of_sources_may_cause_bias). Note that offline sources (such as a print-only newspaper) are acceptable, having a link is just a convenience. TigraanClick here to contact me 08:23, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
@Tigraan: Okay, I've updated and referenced the links on the page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khanyisile_Motsa) as best I can find them. Could you please have a quick look and let me know if its appropriate to remove the Maintenance Banner yet?
