Rollbacker[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. 02:09, 23 January 2015 (UTC)– Gilliam (talk)

The Act of Toleration in Maryland[edit]

Only mentions Trinitarians, not even all Christians, much less "all faiths." The text as it was had no source to back up the previous claim you erroneously restored. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.43.118.16 (talk) 16:16, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

As to de Sousa:

Rollback abuse of good faith edits already! Good for you!

First point: you didn't mention a source - here or in the topic which you edited. Use the topic's discussion page for this type of issue. Third point: did not use rollback (perhaps your other comments are equally factual) TEDickey (talk) 16:25, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Second point: there's no WP:RS for the "Cape Verdean" (the stray comment isn't usable for this purpose). TEDickey (talk) 16:28, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Maybe you should have questioned the good faith edits on the talk page, rather than outright reverted. Because this is a characteristic of deletionist, revertist Wikipedians, like yourself, I took it to your talk page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.43.118.16 (talk) 16:31, 25 January 2015 (UTC)


Maryland Toleration Act clearly states freedom for all Trinitarians, but death sentence for deniers of Christ's divinity. Trigger happy revert warrior. You are not an asset to Wikipedia, by a quick peruse of your edits. What percentage of your edits are comprised of composition, rather than attacking the edits of others? This is what is wrong with Wikipedia. You know nothing, not even what has already been vetted on this website, and still judge out of your own ignorance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.43.118.16 (talk) 16:40, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

The act doesn't use that term. Wikipedia is not a reliable source TEDickey (talk) 16:42, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

The article you reverted falsely claimed freedom for all faiths. You reverted back to a clear lie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.43.118.16 (talk) 16:44, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm curious if you have anything constructive to add. TEDickey (talk) 16:46, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

I already did, but you were not satisfied, like with all the other editors you have attacked in your edit history. You obviously don't have anything to add to this website from your own efforts as a student and scholar. Instead of making constructive edits, you revert everything you see that you are ignorant about. You abuse other people in doing so. Take the heat. You earned it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.43.118.16 (talk) 16:50, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Revert on vi editor[edit]

Thank you for reviewing the edit/update made to vi on 24 January 2015. The page already discusses the difference in interface between vi commands and GUI editor but lacked specific examples. I think it is very helpful for someone trying to read about vi for the first time to see some examples comparing it with a GUI editor. So my intent was to enhance that aspect of it. The added content is extracted from the external link and wanted to give its due credit/reference. In my opinion, the content itself is not promotional. It's more detailed information and is appropriate. However, if you were concerned about the link, you could have only removed the link and retained the content. --Ash zz (talk) 11:00, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

To the extent that your suggested edits do not duplicate material already in the given topics, they are (WP:NOTMANUAL) outside the scope of Wikipedia, not encyclopedic TEDickey (talk) 11:17, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the time to respond but I don't fully understand. I had added a few examples and nothing like in a manual. Are you suggesting that those examples are not encyclopedic? --Ash zz (talk) 08:35, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. 2602:306:CC2E:EFB0:BD8C:1E99:DE0A:7A04 (talk) 22:01, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, discussion was closed faster than a liquor store in Saudi Arabia. Ian.thomson (talk) 22:08, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
thanks TEDickey (talk) 22:56, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
And re-opened and closed again. --QEDKTC 05:47, 9 February 2015 (UTC)


On Crimea and SourceForge.net[edit]

Hi! I'm the one who added text about Crimea being blocked by SF.net. I am Crimean. I first saw Crimea blocked on SF.net on 1 Feb (here is screenshots https://vk.com/wall-18411185_1173). You saying there is need a more reliable sources, but Crimea is not so geeky and press didn't put a lite on this subject nearly at all, so I can't find a better links than some minor posts on this from separate individuals. I'm not a Wikipedia editor, but I think this SF Crimea block should be mirrored in Wikipedia. So please tell me what should I do to make a notice stay on page about SF? — Preceding unsigned comment added by AnimusPEXUS (talkcontribs) 11:14, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

We're looking for reliable sources, as noted. That means: no blogs, no comments by anonymous people (particularly on a community-edited website). Sources in foreign languages are useful only as supplementary sources (if there are none in English, this is probably the wrong place to put it). Traditional news media is a place to start. And by the way, singling out one instance and putting it into a section with general information is promotional editing. TEDickey (talk) 11:47, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok. I can't find reliablier sources. Remove it if You think it should be removed - I will not edit it again. AnimusPEXUS (talk) 13:53, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
thanks - will examine TEDickey (talk) 16:20, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
