Hello Sheen1013. The nature of your edits gives the impression you have an undisclosed financial stake in promoting a topic, but you have not complied with Wikipedia's mandatory paid editing disclosure requirements. Paid advocacy is a category of conflict of interest (COI) editing that involves being compensated by a person, group, company or organization to use Wikipedia to promote their interests. Undisclosed paid advocacy is prohibited by our policies on neutral point of view and what Wikipedia is not, and is an especially serious type of COI; the Wikimedia Foundation regards it as a "black hat" practice akin to black-hat search-engine optimization.

Paid advocates are very strongly discouraged from direct article editing, and should instead propose changes on the talk page of the article in question if an article exists. If the article does not exist, paid advocates are extremely strongly discouraged from attempting to write an article at all. At best, any proposed article creation should be submitted through the articles for creation process, rather than directly.

Regardless, if you are receiving or expect to receive compensation for your edits, broadly construed, you are required by the Wikimedia Terms of Use to disclose your employer, client and affiliation. You can post such a mandatory disclosure to your user page at User:Sheen1013. The template {{Paid}} can be used for this purpose – e.g. in the form: {{paid|user=Sheen1013|employer=InsertName|client=InsertName}}. If I am mistaken – you are not being directly or indirectly compensated for your edits – please state that in response to this message. Otherwise, please provide the required disclosure. In either case, do not edit further until you answer this message. 331dot (talk) 16:32, 24 January 2022 (UTC) Sheen1013 (talk) 16:46, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello EN-Jungwon. I am wondering how I can go about disclosing my employer information (HAUSER) to Wikipedia so that I am allowed to make this edit, as it has been requested from Stjephan HAUSER himself (my employer). We believe that my edit is fairly neutral, and the only intention of the edit was to update the false information that is listed in the current version of the Wikipedia article. If you could please help me understand how to go about making the changes that we would like to have on the page, that would be great. I appreciate your help!

Thank you! Sheen1013 (talk) 16:46, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Sheen1013: to make the required declaration:

  • click on this red link : User:Sheen1013 to start to create your user page.
  • add information about yourself to your user page if you wish
  • add the following syntax, exactly: {{paid|user=Sheen1013|employer=Stjepan Hauser|client=Stjepan Hauser}}
    • (or modify the "employer" portion if you work for an agency, etc.)

If you wish, I can do this for you: just leave a message here. -Arch dude (talk) 22:21, 24 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for getting back to me regarding my request. I respect your decision. I would like to ask what portion of the article that we had edited was seen as "overtly promotional", if possible? I am curious to know so that I can make more reliable edits in the future.

I would just like to note, the HAUSER management team and myself feel that what we had written was not promotional in any way, as we simply took the current version of the article and adjusted/deleted false information (Source: Stjepan Hauser). I understand that beforehand, I had not stated my employment status with HAUSER and so therefore that might have been a problem when editing the article, however I have now correctly stated that I am employed by him.

Any guidance you could provide to help us move forward would be great.

Thank you! Sheen1013 (talk) 16:05, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I really hope I am not coming across as condenscending, but this is an encyclopedia, not a promotional brochure. If you were coming to an encyclopedia, which is an unbiased presentation of facts related to a topic, would you really want the encyclopedia that read such things like "HAUSER’S performance style may only be described as electric; a unique pairing of cello pyrotechnics that align beauty, elegance and true rock muscle". That is giving a (very favorable) opinion, presented in the encyclopedia's voice. That is not encyclopedic, it is promotional. That's the problem with a conflict of interest, when you can't see the bias in your own writing. Now, if Hauser is on the cover of Rolling Stone, and a staff writer pens something similar, we can say "As reviewed by Rolling Stone, Hauser is the best thing that ever happened to the 'cello." But that is in Rolling Stone's voice, not Wikipedia's. However, if Rolling Stone gave a terrible review, we would likewise need to put that in the article. Many living people are accordingly not terribly pleased to have an encyclopedia article written about them. I hope this is helpful. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 19:03, 25 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for your response. I do agree that this type of text from the first edit is not the type of information that Wikipedia is looking for, and in retrospect, I regret attempting to make such an edit. However, this type of language was NOT used in the most recent edit that I attempted to make, and that is why we feel that Wikipedia prematurely removed the edits to the article this time around, as it was purely informational. It seems that the most recent edit I attempted to make was not even read. For reference, I have posted the text from the most recent edit that we attempted to make below. Please let me know if you think that this is overtly promotional as well. However, we feel that it is not, and the only edits that are being made in this version are ones that fix outright misinformation that exists in the current article for HAUSER.


HAUSER (Croatian pronunciation: [xǎuser]; born 15 June 1986) is a Croatian cellist.

Early life and musical training HAUSER was born in Pula, Croatia, into a musical family, where he began his musical education.[1] HAUSER finished secondary school in Rijeka, he completed his undergraduate studies at Trinity College of Music (now Trinity Laban) London. He completed his postgraduate studies with Ralph Kirshbaum as a Dorothy Stone Scholar at RNCM in Manchester and with Bernard Greenhouse in USA.[2]

Career HAUSER has performed in more than 70 countries including debuts in Wigmore Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Southbank Centre, Sidney Opera House and many more.[3][4] In October 2006, HAUSER was chosen to perform at the gala at Palazzo Vecchio in Florence for the late Mstislav Rostropovich.[5][6] Following this appearance, HAUSER was invited to perform in numerous festivals in Europe. On 11 June 2009, HAUSER launched his channel on YouTube, which had since reached over 580 million views by January 2022.[9] In January 2011, HAUSER, along with friend and fellow cellist Luka Šulić, performed a cover of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" which was played solely on cello. In just a few days, the music video became a YouTube sensation.[10][11][12] The album HAUSER Classic was released on 7 February 2020, in which he plays alongside the London Symphony Orchestra. The album was produced by HAUSER and Nick Patrick.[13] During the COVID-19 quarantine, unable to tour in support of his solo album, HAUSER released three performances via live streaming. The first, HAUSER: Alone Together, released on 27 April 2020 was performed at the Arena Pula, in HAUSER's hometown of Pula, Croatia, on the Istrian peninsula. The second, also titled HAUSER: Alone Together, was performed at Krka National Park, at the Krka Waterfalls in central Croatia. The second video was released on 15 June 2020, to celebrate the artist's 34th birthday. The third, again titled HAUSER: Alone Together, was recorded at Fort Lovrijenac in Dubrovnik, Croatia, recognizable to many fans from the HBO series, Game Of Thrones. A special 2 disc edition of HAUSER Classic was released, it includes a DVD of the three HAUSER: Alone Together videos. The album HAUSER plays Morricone premiered on YouTube on 27 October 2020.[14] Collaborations

In the spring of 2011, he recorded an album with Croatian pop star Oliver Dragojević. The album, Noć nek' tiho svira, was released in October 2011. That fall, 2CELLOS began touring with Elton John. Since then, he has performed with the band hundreds of times, on tour all around the world, and in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the Million Dollar Piano concert performance at the Colloseum at Caesar's Palace. In 2018 and 2019, HAUSER released a series of videos with Uzbek-American pianist Lola Astanova on social media. Greenwich Trio Together with the Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovsek and Japanese pianist Yoko Misumi, HAUSER was a member of the renowned Greenwich Trio described by legendary cellist Bernard Greenhouse as the "New Beaux Arts Trio".[15] The Trio won a series of first prizes in the international chamber music competitions in the UK, Belgium and Italy. The Greenwich Trio had masterclasses with Amadeus Quartet, Alban Berg Quartet, Guarneri Quartet, Beaux Arts Trio, Trio Fontenay, Menahem Pressler, Bernard Greenhouse, Ivry Gitlis, Stephen Kovacevich, Ralf Gothoni, Niklas Schmidt, Arnold Steinhardt, Valentin Erben, and Eberhard Feltz. They performed in some of the most prestigious European international music festivals.

2CELLOS Under the name 2CELLOS, HAUSER and Šulić recorded an album with Sony Music Entertainment, which was released in July 2011.[16] In January 2012, they appeared as the special musical guests on Fox's hit TV series Glee where they performed "Smooth Criminal" in the Michael Jackson tribute episode. This was the first time that an instrumental duo had performed on the show in this coveted guest spot.[17] The 2Cellos' arrangement of the song, which featured actors Grant Gustin and Naya Rivera, sold incredibly well debuting at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landing their debut album in the Top 100.[18] In late 2012 and early 2013, a second 2CELLOS album, In2ition, was released. After the release of the second album, HAUSER spent several years touring, either as a member of 2CELLOS or with Elton John. A third album was released in early 2015 called Celloverse, just prior to a 38-city US tour. From 2014 through 2016, HAUSER performed with Oliver Dragojević on at least 5 occasions, including the 2014 Split Festival, with Luka Šulić appearing briefly to join them, in free concerts in Rakalj and on Korčula, also in 2014, and as a guest at the 2CELLOS 5th anniversary free concert in Tomislav Square in Zagreb in 2016.
