September 2009[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Video High Density has been reverted.
Your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline from Wikipedia. The external link you added or changed is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. I removed the following link(s): http://disclord.tripod.com/vhddiscworld/id16.html (matching the regex rule tripod\.com).
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 12:13, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, please ignore this notice.

British Rail[edit]

Your edits to British Rail were good, but I can foresee that they won't be popular in some quarters. It would be really helpful if you would create an arbitrary ID for yourself so that you can engage easily in debates on them.--John Maynard Friedman (talk) 00:09, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

June 2010[edit]

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 Stanley Watras, 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. The consensus in the talk page of Stanley Watras was to do the redirect. If you disagree, please do so at the talk page and discuss this with other editors. Thanks.

If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.

For those unaware of the context of the above accusation, the redirect I reverted redirects to a page that doesn't actually in any way discuss "Stanley Watras", leaving anyone who clicks on a link to it utterly confused. I reverted it to the last version that did, and explained my reasons in the summary.

Apparently making an article useful and explaining why it isn't is "vandalism". This is why Wikipedia is getting increasingly useless to its readers. --66.149.58.8 (talk) 00:51, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Article is now AfD. Feel free to participate, your input is valued. --Mr. Vernon (talk) 01:16, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

February 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Rhapsody (online music service), please cite a reliable source for the content of your edit. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.

The above refers to the removal of uncited, outdated, information from the Rhapsody page and replacement with current information without a cite. As most Wikipedians are aware, it is not mandatory to include cites in edits, especially when anyone interested can very easily verify for themselves the information, which applies here - indeed, if Logical Cowboy was being consistent he'd have removed the offending part of the article, rather than reverted my edits to it.

Hello, it was not an unusual request to ask you to provide a reference when you deleted material. Here is the reference you provided on my talk page.
http://rhapsody.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/187/session/L3NpZC9jTlVsUVhsaw%3D%3D/c/1017/kw/AAC/p/1062/r_id/166/sno/1
The problem is that this is about streams, not downloaded files. Your reference did not show that WMA downloads are no longer available from Rhapsody. They still are. My computer and MP3 player are filled with WMA downloads from Rhapsody, but that's neither here nor there. Here's another reference, showing that there are various formats for streams versus downloads.

Actually, yes, it is unusual to ask for a reference when uncited material is deleted and replaced. As for your second reference, the document is clearly out of date, given this sentence "Downloaded subscription tracks can be 160 Kbps WMA or 128 Kbps RAX (Rhapsody 4.0 only)" - ironically the one I assume you believe asserts that WMA is still a supported format. Neither AAC+ nor MP3 are mentioned in that sentence. http://rhapsody.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/250/kw/RAX/r_id/166 has a more up to date list.
I think that file is out of date, or incomplete. It's not great to use forums for references, but here is a quote from a Rhapsody employee, three months ago. "Subscription tracks are DRM protected, and will be in either .rax or .wma, depending on your portable device." The original problem was that you were giving information about streams, which are different than downloads.
