December 2011[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, but at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Circuit diagram, did not appear to be constructive and has been automatically reverted (undone) by an automated computer program called ClueBot NG.

  • Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Note that human editors do monitor recent changes to Wikipedia articles, and administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism.
  • ClueBot NG makes very few mistakes, but it does happen. If you believe the change you made should not have been considered as unconstructive, please read about it, report it here, remove this warning from your talk page, and then make the edit again.
  • If you need help, please see our help pages, and if you can't find what you are looking for there, please feel free to place "{{helpme}}" on your talk page and someone will drop by to help.
  • The following is the log entry regarding this warning: Circuit diagram was changed by 128.187.97.20 (u) (t) ANN scored at 0.963939 on 2011-12-31T01:56:23+00:00 . Thank you. ClueBot NG (talk) 01:56, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

January 2012[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Fold (higher-order function) with this edit, did not appear to be constructive, and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

March 2012[edit]

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. —Eustress talk 19:40, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. —Eustress talk 19:44, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Carey High School (Carey, Idaho), you may be blocked from editing without further notice. A. Parrot (talk) 01:48, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at ZIP code, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. - Pointillist (talk) 10:52, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello: Is there any way to see the edits from this IP address? It's kind of sad that so much vandalism has appeared from this address, and I'd be interested as a member of this school in seeing the ratio of vandalism to beneficial contribution. It's kind of scary to see such dire warnings on a page that represents an entire community. 128.187.97.18 (talk) 22:23, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for asking—the situation is a bit complicated. You can see all the anonymous wikipedia edits from an individual IP address by browsing to a topic in the form Special:Contributions/128.187.97.20. "Anonymous" means an edit made by someone who either hasn't registered a Wikipedia account, or who has an account but is editing without having logged in. According to WhoIs, Brigham Young University has the range 128.187.0.0 - 128.187.255.255, so contributions could come from any of over 60,000 different addresses. If you register an account, you can request the Javascript-enhanced contributions lookup feature, which allows you to examine all contributions from a range of IP addresses. But remember that this does not represent the entire community, only the edits made anonymously. According to the notes at User talk:128.187.97.6, there was an open proxy on the Brigham Young University website until last year, so some of the older contributions may have come from outside anyway. - Pointillist (talk) 23:12, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Please stop trying to push content into an article without acquiring WP:Consensus for your inclusions after several editors have reverted you. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. --Grotekennis (talk) 17:21, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

I notice you have reverted yourself. Thank you. Please continue discussion on the talk page. You need to acquire WP:Consensus to include your content in the article. Without consensus you should not be adding these in. --Grotekennis (talk) 17:23, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Apologies; My computer was acting weird, so my intent was only 2 edits today. 128.187.97.20 (talk) 17:39, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

Welcome![edit]

Broom icon.svg

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, such as the one you made on Mortimer J. Adler. I greatly appreciate your efforts to fight vandalism and make constructive edits on Wikipedia. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages you might like to see:

You are welcome to continue editing without logging in, but many editors recommend that you create an account. Doing so is free, requires no personal information, and provides several benefits such as the ability to create articles. For a full outline and explanation of the benefits that come with creating an account, please see this page. If you edit without a username, your IP address (128.187.97.20) is used to identify you instead.

In any case, I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your comments on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your IP address (or username if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question and then place {{helpme}} before the question on this page. Again, welcome! S.

QUESTION[edit]

check-mark
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Is there a link somewhere to this page so I can find it again easily, or do I have to make some sort of external bookmark? Do I get some sort of alert when people try to contact me here? There seem to be multiple people editing from this address. 128.187.97.20 (talk) 18:48, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

You have a reply at the Help desk from me. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 19:26, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
This address belongs to a proxy server, which means many people do indeed use it. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages) 19:51, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
How do you know it is a proxy server? 128.187.97.20 (talk) 19:56, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
The rDNS refers to it as "filter" and there's about five or ten consecutive IPs with that in the rDNS, so I'd say there's a pretty good chance the institution is running everything through a webfilter on a proxy server to block out things they don't like.

Information icon Hello, I'm Meteor sandwich yum. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Names of God without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry: I restored the removed content.

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to 2012 Packers–Seahawks officiating controversy‎‎, but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Will need sources that "Fail Mary" is commonly used. It's already mentioned in the article that some have used the term.Bagumba (talk) 07:51, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
