Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Terry Kath, 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. Hi there. You're adding lots of diligent and good content to Wikipedia. But unfortunately, you're not only adding unsourced fan-cruft to Terry Kath, but you're repeatedly doing so after having been undone. See WP:3RR. You really should make an account and be a full participant in the community! Thanks.Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 05:32, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Smuckola. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Katherine Jackson, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. You have established a trend of adding very specific, and sometimes contentious, content which has no citations. Sometimes, it has an unencyclopedic tone which is more akin to trade journalism. Sometimes, you're referring to specific sources which you don't actually cite, so you should learn how to create citations. It looks like that'd be within your ability, because you are doing many competent edits. Please be very careful not to keep repeating these. Lots of your contributions are being undone by various people. You really need to make an account! Thanks.Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 05:55, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page.

Various Personnel[edit]

Hi, I've noticed you've added a personnel section to several Chicago songs as well as Genesis and Fleetwood Mac (both great bands BTW). Although your edits are probably correct, I would like to know where you got your information. Rock on! Dobbyelf62 (talk) 00:49, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

Hello, please stop adding unsourced and encyclopedic text, as you did to Malcolm McLaren and Joan Armatrading. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked. Graham87 14:37, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Your edits[edit]

Hi. I can see you like editing classic rock music articles, which is great. However, unless you read up on referencing for beginners, you're likely to get frustrated, as we require facts to be verifiable to good quality sources. Even if you think you know something, quite often it turns out you've got it from second-hand information, and even if you were present at the actual recording session, gig or event in question, if it's something from 40+ years ago, memories have a nasty habit of actually being wrong.

To see why this is problematic, have a look at this rant from Rick Wakeman, who was so fed up with people adding unsourced or poorly sourced content that he was led to exclaim : "It’s well known I loathe Wikipedia (I have given up correcting it as complete nutcases just change it back to a pack of inaccurate rubbish within minutes). I actually tell journalists not to go anywhere near Wikipedia". Not a good result. --Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:00, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Your edit of the John Jarratt article - June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Melbourne3163. I noticed that you made a change to the John Jarratt article on 13 June 2014, but you didn't provide a reliable source to support/verify the change. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so. Thank you. Melbourne3163 (talk) 12:15, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing.

Your edits are causing problems. They are not vandalism, we can tell you want to help and contribute positively to the encyclopedia. That's great. However, you aren't communicating with anybody, which means when there's confusion or disagreement over things, we can't tell what your intent is, which runs the risk of your edits getting reverted.

So, in summary, can you please :

  • Don't add information that is contentious or questionable without a reliable source on articles dealing with living people.
  • Read this talkpage. (I have seen editors indefinitely blocked to force them to read their talk page, and I really hope we don't have to get to that stage)
  • Use edit summaries when making changes. Then we can see whether change was cosmetic, substantial or controversial.
  • If somebody writes something on an article's talk page, read it and take note. Respond if you can. But don't just blindly change the state of an article back to the way you want, as that can get you blocked for edit-warring.

I see other editors have tried to tell you the same thing to no effect. That means, if I see it again, I might have to file a report at WP:ANI. However, I can guarantee you here and now I will not do this if you either reply on this talk page or another talk page. We just want to get you communicating - that's all.

@Ritchie333, Materialscientist: It's nonstop. He's moved over to User_talk:115.64.25.61. The rampage of reverted edits continues. Would you be so good as to file that complaint? — Smuckola (Email) (Talk) 04:46, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to James Taylor, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Binksternet (talk) 06:33, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
