From Feedback - Should agencies avoid pitching during Games?

Clients should use London 2012 to test agency skills

What utter nonsense ('AAR warns against new business pitches during Olympics',, 14 June).

Government says Games can boost businesses

Rules on Wikipedia brand page editing are clear

There seems to be a lot of confusion and misinformation about how brands can edit their Wikipedia pages, but it is very straightforward ('Brands suffer on Wikipedia, study reveals',, 14 June).

If you have any kind of professional relationship with a brand, you have a conflict of interest. It is against Wikipedia's terms and conditions for you to directly add or edit any content relating to that brand.

A PR person is allowed to edit a Wikipedia page to correct obvious vandalism, minor errors in spelling, grammar, usage, or facts, as well as providing accurate references for information that is already in the article.

As with any kind of social media channel, you should understand and engage with the community before you start trying to push your own agenda.
