Modern Wiki

Organizations FAQ

Modern Wikia is an incredibly popular website and the fact that anyone can edit means that it attracts many publicity agents and employees and supporters of a variety of organizations, from businesses to governmental agencies (including militaries) to non-profits, who may decide to edit pages about their organizations. Such employees, as well as individuals who edit articles about themselves or friends, obviously have a vested interest in creating or modifying an article and may have a conflict of interest.

If you are one of these people, then this FAQ about how to edit without displaying a conflict of interest is for you.

May I advertise my organization or its campaigns, clients, products, services or leading individuals on Modern Wikia?

Yes. Modern Wikia is not a place for you to post advertisements however we can take ads on the users talkpages. Our policy on neutral point of view makes this impossible and any such edits will be removed. Advertising anywhere else may be in addition considered spam and will likely lead to penalties such as blocking or even banning.

Am I allowed to edit articles about myself or my organization?

You are strongly discouraged from writing articles about yourself or organisations (including their campaigns, clients, products and services) in which you hold a vested interest. However, if you feel that there is material within an existing article which is incorrect, or not neutral in its tone, please point this out on the article's talk page. Likewise, if you have content which you think should be added, please discuss this on the talk page. Editing articles that you are affiliated with is not completely prohibited, but you must be extremely careful to follow our policies. Don't resist when other people edit your contributions. If you follow our basic rules, your edits should be accepted by the community. If you don't, however, your edits may be reverted and you may end up blocked if you do not stop when asked to.
