August 2019Edit

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. Additionally, if you receive, or expect to receive, compensation for your contributions to Wikipedia, you must disclose who is paying you to edit.

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. To do so, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page, replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason for thinking that the block was an error, and publish the page.

Bishonen I'm not clear on what the username issue is. Shelly, please understand that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and not a place to merely tell about a subject. I'm glad that your organization does good work, but Wikipedia is not the place to tell about it. Wikipedia is not interested in what an organization wants to say about itself, only in what independent reliable sources with significant coverage state about it. Please review conflict of interest and paid editing(even if you are not being paid in money). Is there any other subjects that you want to edit about as an individual contributor that are unrelated to your organization? 331dot (talk) 10:50, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

@331dot: I'm not clear on it either — I must have clicked on the wrong block reason. Sorry, Shelly2dollar! I probably meant to block you for advertising and likely conflict of interest. As far as I can see, there's nothing wrong with your username; feel free to keep it. Please just reply to 331dot's question and read the links they direct you to. Again, I'm sorry about the username thing. Bishonen | talk 11:06, 3 September 2019 (UTC).
Bishonen No worries- I could have always missed something! Thanks 331dot (talk) 11:08, 3 September 2019 (UTC)
