@Theroadislong: I have removed the line "the world's first commercially available neuromorphic processor." I don't understand your comments about the patents Birdmanoftech (talk) 21:28, 15 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
The existence of patents or patent applications is a common form of puffery for businesses. Avoid giving too much emphasis to their existence or contents. They confer zero notability. Theroadislong (talk) 21:31, 15 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Theroadislong: I have removed the patents, is it now acceptable? Birdmanoftech (talk) 21:45, 15 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to assume good faith after you stated you had no COI (at the WikiProject Companies noticeboard). However, your edits give a huge red flag that you are somehow connected to this company. Regardless of you being paid directly or not, you may have a conflict which is defined by WP:PAID and/or WP:COI. Also, your last edit to that page was unsourced which is not something that can be done. Please ensure that a reliable sources is used anytime there is an addition. CNMall41 (talk) 07:56, 24 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Sir, you seem to have a conflict of interest against me, the edits I make, and the BrainChip page; you exhibit a passion for the belief that I am somehow connected with this company, I may assume there is nothing I can do to convince you of the truth, I am not. I will tell you I am a student in Nebraska with an interest in general computer science. I would ask that in the future before you accuse me again, please run your complaints through another editor. Birdmanoftech (talk) 23:39, 24 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
and having a look at your talk page it looks like this in not a unique occurrence, you seem to have a compulsion towards accusing people of having connections with companies. Birdmanoftech (talk) 23:44, 24 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@CNMall41: Birdmanoftech (talk) 15:33, 26 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
First, if you think I have a conflict, please take it up at the appropriate noticeboard. I simply told you that while trying to assume good faith, your edits give the impression of a COI. Please tell me where I accused you of such. Now, your accusations absolutely cross the line of WP:AGF. I call out what appears to be COI based on my experience here, not just pulling things out of my ass. So again, go to the appropriate noticeboard if you feel I am picking on people. --CNMall41 (talk) 03:34, 27 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
With that aside, you didn't address the issue of adding content that is not referenced. Just want to make sure you area aware that adding information requires a source. --CNMall41 (talk) 03:38, 27 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I do not see a huge red flag here. I removed some WP:NPOV material before I accepted the draft but that's not unusual to see coming from a new editor. Please don't WP:BITE. ~Kvng (talk) 20:25, 1 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Definitely not going to BITE as the same happened to me when I first came here. I will however not be accused by someone of "hav[ing] a compulsion towards accusing people of having connections with companies" without evidence. Especially when that person has given the impression (not just to me but to others as well) as having a conflict of interest. But as stated, they are welcome to go to ANI if they feel I am biting or harassing. I am always open for admonishment if in the wrong. --CNMall41 (talk) 20:36, 1 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@CNMall41 understand that WP:BITE applies specifically to newcomers. Birdmanoftech has been an editor for two months. You have been here for almost 10 years. It is not WP:AGF to start a screed with I would like to assume good faith.... It is not WP:CIVIL to bully then take the position that it is only bad behavior if we can get consensus from a dysfunctional noticeboard to label it as such. Admonishment is not a goal here. I'm hoping for some self awareness and an appreciation that the way you say things (especially to newcomers) matters and then an improvement in behavior. That's my dreamworld at least. ~Kvng (talk) 22:09, 13 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
We work in an environment that requires cooperation from all editors. So, 10 years or not, I am subject to admonishment like all other editors. If you feel I am bullying, then please do what you feel necessary. I will understand and harbor no hard feelings. I will say I am a little puzzled at the accusation of bullying though, especially from an experienced user who understands that AGF is not a WP:PACT. Bullying would be undoing the edits that this user has made (including the promotional edits made today) which I have not. So yes, while a dreamworld would be great (and I would love to share in that dream with you), I am hoping for some self awareness on your end as well.--CNMall41 (talk) 07:34, 14 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Regarding the "promotional edits made today", I made an effort write these as cut and dry as possible, I felt it was important mention these announcements as the global and market response to these announcements was substantial and made headlines. If you have constructive advice on how to integrate this information in a non-promotional way, I would appreciate it. Birdmanoftech (talk) 14:39, 14 March 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Mount Michael Abbey moved to draftspace[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to Mount Michael Abbey. Unfortunately, I do not think it is ready for publishing at this time because it has no sources. I have converted your article to a draft which you can improve, undisturbed for a while.

Please see more information at Help:Unreviewed new page. When the article is ready for publication, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page OR move the page back. I dream of horses (Hoofprints) (Neigh at me) 08:02, 12 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@(Neigh at me)
Hi. Some of this information is from a yet unpublished book manuscript a friend of mine wrote "The History of Mount Michael Abbey". I'm not sure how to site this information as it has yet to be finished/published. I can say that his book is a credible source I'm just not sure how to reference it. any advice you could give would be great.

@I dream of horses
I have added some other sources that verify the information from his manuscript, if they are satisfactory. ~ Birdmanoftech (talk) 09:39, 12 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
We can't use unpublished books to source articles. It limits verification of the information you're putting in the article/draft too much. I dream of horses (Hoofprints) (Neigh at me) 11:22, 12 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@I dream of horses
Do the other sources I have included provide enough verification of the information on the page? I think I found sources that touch on just about everything I put on the page.
~ Birdmanoftech (talk) 13:09, 12 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Well, the sources are one newspaper and affiliated sources, so a reviewer might have issues with that. However, I don't review drafts on demand. I dream of horses (Hoofprints) (Neigh at me) 15:22, 12 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not exactly sure what I should be looking for source wise beyond this, I have articles from the only significant newspaper in Omaha and if I can't use information from other Benedictine sources because they are affiliated what should I use? I could use some guidance here.
