Editing articles in order to promote the specific interests of a candidate, group, company, or individual rather than contribute to Judgepedia's common goals is a conflict of interest.
Editors who contribute to Judgepedia with an agenda have a tendency to cause disruptions and to run afoul of Judgepedia's ideals of neutrality, fairness, balance, reliability and accuracy.
It hurts Judgepedia as a reliable resource when people who have a conflict of interest edit. Judgepedia's staff is responsible for detecting violations of neutrality and balance, and the organization suffers when too much time is spent correcting conflict of interest editing.
If you have a conflict of interest, but you want to add information in a spirit of impartiality consistent with Judgepedia's goals, please provide information about yourself on your talk page.
Editors who fit these descriptions should particularly take care to identify themselves:
- If you are, are related to, or work for the campaign of a judicial candidate
- If you work for a political campaign that has some special interest in a particular event covered on Judgepedia
- If you work for an organization and you are editing an article on Judgepedia about that organization
