August 2013[edit]

Information.svg Hi. Welcome to Wikipedia, and thanks for working to improve the site with your edit to The Real World. However, the edit had to be reverted, because Wikipedia cannot accept unsourced material or original research. This includes material lacking cited sources, material obtained through personal knowledge, or which constitutes the an analysis or interpretation by the editor that is not found in cited sources. Wikipedia requires that the material in its articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable (usually secondary) sources explicitly cited in the article text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here.

In addition, please understand that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and should be written with care taken in adhering to basic principles of writing. An event or status cannot be described as "this has been removed ever since", since "this has been removed" indicates a singular event, whereas "ever since" implies an ongoing status. You can say "this was removed in [year]", or "this has not been the case ever since the fourth season", but you can't put the two together because they are not compatible. In addition, the word allowed is not spelled "alloud". If you're going to contribute to an encyclopedia, then you should be able to compose sentences with proper syntax and spelling.

In any event, I have removed the entire passage, because the source cited for it, Hello Giggles, is a website that accepts contributions from users, and sites with user-generated content are not considered reliable under WP:USERG.

If you ever have any other questions about editing, or need help regarding the site's policies, just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 18:49, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
