Do I have to disclose my relationship with my organization?
Paid contributions without disclosure
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.
- 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.
Editors who are not paid to edit to Wikipedia, but have a different kind of conflict of interest, should disclose their interest on their user pages and on the talk page of the article in question, under Wikipedia's conflict of interest guideline. They may request changes or make suggestions on talk pages. Using the template
will help draw attention to the request.
If you hire someone to write an article, then you should verify that they follow the above rules, and you probably shouldn't pay the full price until it's stayed un-deleted for at least 90 days.
