What is classed as Advertising on Wiki? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried to change an external reference link from an existing link to a better and more relevant link, yet Wiki always changes it back due.

    It believes that I am adding a link for advertising purposes but this is definitely not the case.

    Is there any way of stopping this?

  • What is the article URL? I don't see your name as a user name on the wiki to follow up and see what the problem might be. Alternatively, why change someone else's link? Why not add yours instead

    Just to clarify for all: the wiki does not do this, a human does it after looking at the link and attempting to contact the poster to work out whatever the issue might be.
