==[[ ]]== Hi. I have reverted an edit of yours on this article, and would like to remind you about [[WP:BRD]]. When your '''''B'''''old edit has been '''''R'''''everted by another editor, the recommended next step, if you continue to think the edit is necessary, is to '''''D'''''iscuss the dispute on the article talk page with other editors, but not to re-revert it, which is the first step to [[WP:EW|edit warring]], a [[WP:Disruptive editing|disruptive activity]] which is not allowed. Discussion on the talk page is the only way we have of reaching [[WP:CONSENSUS|consensus]], which is central to resolving editing disputes in an amicable and collegial manner, which is why [[WP:ENGAGE|communicating your concerns to your fellow editors is essential]]. While the discussion is going on, the article generally should remain in the ''status quo ante'' until the consensus as to what to do is reached (see [[WP:STATUSQUO]]). To help move things along, I have started a discussion on the article talk page about the disputed edit, which you will find [XXXXX here]. Please take the opportunity to make your views known there. It is best not to restore the material you added until there is a consensus among the editors there to do so. Thanks, ~~~~
==[[ ]]== Hi. Thank you for your edit pointing out parts of the above article which you feel do not adhere to the [[WP:Manual of Style]] (MOS). I'm sure that you are aware that MOS is not a mandatory Wikipedia '''''policy''''', it is instead a non-mandatory '''''guideline to editing'''''. At the top of every MOS page you will find the following information: <blockquote>This [[Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines#guide|guideline]] is a part of the English Wikipedia's Manual of Style. It is a generally accepted standard that editors should attempt to follow, though it is best treated with [[Wikipedia:What "Ignore all rules" means#Use common sense|common sense]], and [[Wikipedia:Ignore all rules|occasional exceptions]] may apply.</blockquote> You have come across some of those common sense exceptions, which I'll be happy to explain to you on the article's talk page, where they can be discussed, and other editors can weigh in with their opinions about whether these particular exceptions are acceptable or not. Through that discussion, [[WP:ENGAGE|which is an essential part of the Wikipedia process]], the editors can reach a [[WP:CONSENSUS|consensus]] about what should be done. Please take the opportunity of going to the talk page and taking part in that discussion. Thanks, ~~~~

Paid editing
== Considering your history of contributions here... == ...I need to ask you this direct question: Are you paid for your editing on Wikipedia by the companies you write about, or any companies associated with them? If so, you need to be aware of this: The [http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Terms_of_Use Wikimedia Foundation Terms of Use] (which is '''''our''''' Terms of Use, since we've never adopted another one), says: <blockquote> <u>'''Paid contributions without disclosure</u>{{parabr}}These Terms of Use prohibit engaging in deceptive activities, including misrepresentation of affiliation, impersonation, and fraud. As part of these obligations, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation. You must make that disclosure in at least one of the following ways: *'''a statement on your user page,''' *'''a statement on the talk page accompanying any paid contributions, or''' *'''a statement in the edit summary accompanying any paid contributions.''' '''Applicable law, or community and Foundation policies and guidelines, such as those addressing conflicts of interest, may further limit paid contributions or require more detailed disclosure.{{parabr}}A Wikimedia Project community may adopt an alternative paid contribution disclosure policy. If a Project adopts an alternative disclosure policy, you may comply with that policy instead of the requirements in this section when contributing to that Project. An alternative paid contribution policy will only supersede these requirements if it is approved by the relevant Project community and listed in the alternative disclosure policy page.{{parabr}}For more information, please read our FAQ on disclosure of paid contributions.{{parabr}}We reserve the right to exercise our enforcement discretion with respect to the above terms.'''</blockquote> If you are a paid editor, you '''''must''''' comply with these terms, '''''as well as with''''' our English Wikipedia-specific policy on [[WP:COI|editing with a conflict of interest]]. This is not a matter for debate, it's part of the contract you agree to by editing here. So, again, a <u>direct answer please</u>: do you get paid for editing here?
Soft warning to possible trolls or vandals
Hi. One of our cardinal principles here is that we should, whenever possible, [[WP:AGF|"assume good faith"]] of other editors. In this spirit, I'm going to assume that you were unaware that the username you chose, "XXXXXXXXX", is sending up flares which announce "I am not here to improve the encyclopedia, I am probably a troll or a vandal." Given that, you might want to consider a different username.{{parabr}}I'll be standing by if you need help, watching your edits to make sure that, as a "newbie", you don't have any problems. ~~~~
Blocked and banned
==People who are blocked or banned from Wikipedia...== ...cannot edit here no matter what identity or IP they use. Your edits have all been reverted. ~~~~
User:Daniel C. Boyer
Regarding [(DIFF HERE) this], a reminder that you are indefinitely blocked from editing Wikipedia, in furtherance of a community-imposed site ban, and that, further, you are "topic banned from creating, editing, or attempting to delete articles about [your]self. Furthermore, [you are] banned from inserting [your] presence into other articles as well as banned from removing [your] presence from other articles. Any edit that appears to be WP:PROMOTIONAL about [your]self is to be considered a violation of this topic ban." ~~~~
Bunting for a home run
==Hello== I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that you are banned from posting comments on my talk page, unless, of course, you are '''''<u>required to</u>''''' by Wikipedia '''''<u>policy</u>'''''. If you are required to post a notice on my talk page, please '''''clearly indicate <u>in the edit summary</u> what policy''''' you are doing so under. Any other posted comments will be deleted without being read.{{parabr}}Please note that this ban also applies to pinging me.{{parabr}}Also, if you email me to get around this ban, I will assume that you are agreeing in advance that the entire contents of the e-mail can be released to anyone I wish to.{{parabr}}Thanks. ~~~~

No meta-discussions
In general, please do not contact me in regard to previous disputes, sanctions, blocks and bans involving other editors. I am attempting to keep my involvement with Wikipedia and Commons on the level of creating, editing and uploading content, and trying to stay out of meta-discussions of all kinds. I hope in this way to avoid disputes, and especially to avoid having my name brought up on ANI every couple of weeks, therefore making my Wikipedia experience more rewarding and less aggravating than it has been at times in the past. Thanks. ~~~~
