# '''జర్నలిజము''': వికీపీడియా ఎప్పటికప్పుడు వేడివేడిగా వార్తలందించే వార్తా వెబ్సైటు కాదు
ఒక దండోరా కాదు ===
Wikipedia is not a [[soapbox]], or a vehicle for propaganda and advertising. Therefore, Wikipedia articles are not:
#'''[[Propaganda]] or [[advocacy]]''' of any kind. Of course, an article can report objectively ''about'' such things, as long as an attempt is made to approach a [[Wikipedia:neutral point of view|neutral point of view]]. You might wish to go to [[Usenet]] or start a [[blog]] if you want to convince people of the merits of your favorite views.
#'''Self-promotion'''. While you are free to write about yourself or projects you have a strong personal involvement in, remember that the standards for encyclopedic articles apply to such pages just like any other. A very few somewhat famous Wikipedians have significantly contributed to encyclopedia articles about themselves and their accomplishments, and this has mostly been accepted after some debate. Creating overly abundant links and references to autobiographical articles is not acceptable. See [[Wikipedia:Autobiography]].
#'''Advertising'''. Articles about companies and products are fine if they are written in an objective and unbiased style. Furthermore, all article topics must be third-party verifiable, so articles about very small "garage" companies are not likely to be acceptable. External links to commercial organizations are acceptable if they can serve to identify major corporations associated with a topic (see [[finishing school]] for an example). Please note Wikipedia does not endorse any businesses and it does not set up affiliate programs.
