Controversial perhaps- but I think it's pretty important they learn the principles here.
I am aware of quite a few PR and SMM agencies that edit Wikipedia and they are generally quite unaware about the principles- and end up being a bigger burden than they would otherwise have been had they known the process ahead of time. I welcome this endeavour by P. and Moksh. I have three suggestions for inclusion here, based on recent experiences: copyrights/copyvio, notability; and some emphasis on verifiability.
