April 2014Edit

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development has been reverted.
Your edit here to Novartis Foundation for Sustainable Development was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o1Zq3mA9LA) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.

Elizabeth Holmes reversionEdit

I reverted your AGF edit. Dropout is pretty disparaging for the first sentence. That's not how we open the Bill Gates & Steve Jobs articles, nor do we mention that Steve Wozniak was expelled from U. of Col. in the 1st sentence. Dropping out from Stanford is covered sufficiently later in the Elizabeth Holmes article as it is in the other three articles.

What Elizabeth Holmes did with her company disgusts me, but it is important to open a lead section with a neutral tone.

While I respect the be bold editing guideline, I also operate by Wikipedia's consensus policy. The edits that I restored were placed by other editors who believe Elizabeth Holmes to be a chemical engineer. If you think that all mention of that needs to come out, please discuss it at the Talk:Elizabeth Holmes page. I tend to revert IP editors when they want to make substantial changes that can affect the tone of an article without discussing it first on the article's talk page.

P.S. If you to get an editor's attention on a talk page, use the {{ping}} template, as in {{ping|Peaceray}}.

February 2018Edit

  Hello, I'm SummerPhDv2.0. I noticed that you made a change to an article, List of Berklee College of Music alumni, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.
