Welcome to Pensapedia and thanks for your attempt to contribute to our project. We're glad to have you. May I ask, though, how does the Laura Sjoberg article you created relate to Pensacola? Is she a Pensacola resident or was she born here? The article does not make that clear. I would ask that you revise the article to clarify, because at current it does not meet our standards for inclusion. If you do not take steps to clarify the article's relation to Pensacola, it will likely face deletion. Again, welcome to Pensapedia! dscosson ··· talk 08:00, 14 March 2008 (CDT)

She's a Pensacola native. I think Laura was a couple years ahead of me at PHS. However, the connection to Pensacola should be stated explicitly in the article. Also, based on the username of the contributor, this article likely represents a conflict of interest. I don't think we need to delete it, per se, but while I congratulate Laura on her successful career, the level of detail in the initial contribution is unnecessary and probably aggrandized.
I've updated the article with what I believe is a reasonable compromise. Please post here if you have any objections. --Admin 11:26, 14 March 2008 (CDT)
I thought the name sounded familiar (a Sjoberg is the proprietor of Ideawörks) but Pensacola wasn't mentioned in the article as written, and it seemed vanity-ish, so I thought it was maybe some of that random spammy stuff we had awhile back. As the article is now I have no objections and feel it certainly qualifies for inclusion. Thanks. dscosson ··· talk 11:39, 14 March 2008 (CDT)
