User talk:Wconnolly648

Hi there,

Welcome to the site!

When editing pages, please remember you are writing on behalf of a large website. Everything must be fact - not opinion which can be argued or get us into trouble - because otherwise it's not clear who said what.

Of course we'd love to hear your opinions on different services, but please keep them to the forums or Facebook page. You can also update your user page and add your opinions there.

Unfortunately, opinion pieces placed on the main part of the website will have to be taken down. Johnathan404 (talk) 08:37, 1 April 2016 (BST)

Edit Warring[edit]

Please do not make the same edit repeatedly. It was removed, every time, for a reason: as explained, the linked article does not qualify as a suitable survey (it wasn't a formal review; it was a collection of user opinions).

This is a serious matter. I note this is not the first time. It certainly will not be happening again.

Copyright Violations and Lazy Editing[edit]

Good morning,

As much as we value contributions here, if you can't think of anything to say which isn't:

  1. 1 Copied from another website
  2. 2 Pointing people to another website probably isn't worth writing anything at all. There's no rush. I have hundreds of pages I need to write but will only post when they're ready, but instead of getting them ready, I'm having to spend my time investigating content being stolen from Wikipedia.

There are lots of websites which steal, it's irritating, we are better than that. Stealing from any website is bad, but copying from Wikipedia, which is often inaccurate and irrelevant, is ridiculous. That's not just something teachers say: I know Wikipedia has lots of wrong information about MSAs.

As for pointing people to other websites, that's what people use Google for, not us. If you need to use another website to complete the article it's probably not worth starting it, especially if the other website is either a hastily-written newspaper article or an unofficial industry insider. There are hundreds of the latter, including us.

It's all about quality. Take a read of our Featured Content: there's more like that to come.
