Terms of Service for Wikipedia Writing
Before contracting Wikipedia writing services with your organization, we will have an initial consultation with the client. The consultation is to determine the project scope and begin the process of drafting a proposal. After the consultation, our writing staff will determine whether the client’s article meets the criteria for Wikipedia inclusion. After the initial consultation, we will invoice the client for the Initial Consultation Fee.
FAILURE TO MEET INCLUSION CRITERIA
If the article does not meet the criteria, we will notify the client and explain the reasons why the article does not meet the standards for inclusion. If the article does not meet the criteria for inclusion, the client is still obligated to pay the Initial Consultation Fee, and no refund will be given.
In order to be included in Wikipedia, the subject matter must be considered notable by Wikipedia standards. Please review http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability) Before your initial consultation to get an understanding of the notability requirements.
SUCCESS IN MEETING INLCUSION CRITERIA
If the article does meet the standards for inclusion, then we will draft a contract for writing services. The contract will include the scope of the project, the time frame for completion, and the hourly rate for the project.
FIRST DRAFT/UPLOADING INTO WIKIPEDIA
Next, we will proceed to writing a first draft of the article. After we complete the first draft, we will send the draft to the client for review and approval. The client will have the opportunity to provide feedback and request editorial changes. Once the first draft is approved by the client, the article will go to our Quality Control department. Our editor will then proceed to upload the article into the main Wikipedia site.
Wikipedia has very strict guidelines on the use of images in your Wikipedia article. If you would like to include images, you must first upload the images to a personal Flickr account. Then, provide us with the Flickr URL(s) of the images for use in Wikimedia Commons. If the images do not exist in Flickr (or some other file sharing site where a Creative Commons license is attached) we will not include photos or images in your article.
The client will get two (2) courtesy edits after the article is uploaded into the main Wikipedia site.
Once the two final edits are completed, we will invoice the client for the contracted writing fee. After the invoice is sent, no more edits can be requested. Additional edits will require a new, separate contract to be made between Gnosis Arts and the client.
NOTIFICATION OF PREVIOUS ARTICLE ATTEMPTS
It is the client’s responsibility to notify us if the article we are about to write has already been written in and/or deleted by Wikipedia. Failure to notify us that an article was previously written and/or deleted is grounds for termination of your contract with us.
DELETION OR ABRIDGEMENT OF ARTICLE
In addition, Gnosis Arts does not guarantee that the article we write and upload into Wikipedia will not be deleted, edited or otherwise altered by the Wikipedia editorial staff. Once the article is up on Wikipedia, whatever happens to it is out of our control. While we do our best to adhere to all Wikipedia editorial standards, we cannot be held liable for a subsequently deleted, abridged, edited or vandalized article. If you article is changed in any way after upload, you will NOT be eligible for a refund.
