Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. 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 (71.191.95.5) 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!

Categorization[edit]

Categories should only be added to an article if the subject is known for that characteristic per WP:CAT. Simply having had a job doing something once is not a sufficient basis for putting someone in the same category as people who are actually noteworthy for having been in that career. If there are people with that category for whom that does not apply then the categories should be removed from their pages as well.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 01:55, 17 April 2013 (UTC)


Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/And we drown, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.

August 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm 117Avenue. I noticed that you made an edit to a biography of a living person, Arden Cho, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source. Wikipedia has a strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. 117Avenue (talk) 03:22, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you violate Wikipedia's biographies of living persons policy by inserting unsourced or poorly sourced defamatory or otherwise controversial content into an article or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Brittany Snow, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

September 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Tgeairn. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Carly Simon, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Tgeairn (talk) 05:26, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification on this. It would be helpful if you could also correct the citation for that statement (the link is dead, but a quick search indicates that there are likely other sources). Cheers! --Tgeairn (talk) 05:31, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Kate Bush. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. Elizium23 (talk) 02:34, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

ethnicelebs.com[edit]

Hello. I've reverted several of your recent edits regarding celebrity ethnicities because of the source you used - ethnicelebs.com. The site states that its info is for entertainment only and not necessarily factual, meaning it fails WP:RS. This RSN about the site backs this up.  Mbinebri  talk ← 13:37, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

American Horror Story: Murder House[edit]

Only one episode of American Horror Story: Murder House, "Spooky Little Girl," refers to the Black Dahlia case, so I added the category there. Goustien (talk) 23:25, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Look, I've read all of your edit summaries, and I'm quite aware of the issues you're concerned about, but the bottom line is that categories of this sort have to be used with great restraint, regardless of how strongly one feels. When they are applied in cases like these they most asssuredly do come across as "attack categories". Category:Denialism should only be used in connection with certain very particular topics where the holding of such views is generally recognized and widely described as "denialism". It has to be more than just the personal opinion of one or another Wiki editor. Category:Anti-intellectualists is especially problematic because, in addition to what I just said, it also raises very serious WP:BLP issues. In all likelhood, it won't survive at CFD. However much you may be inclined to add these categories back all over again, please take a deep breath and exercise some self-restraint in your future edits. Cgingold (talk) 14:21, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

PS - You may be interested to know that I noticed your edit placing Tyler Perry into Category:Rape victims, and was ready to back you up on that if it had proven necessary. Cgingold (talk) 14:30, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Your additions to Category:Rape victims are likewise troubling. The category comes with a history, and the conditions in the headnote are the bare minimum. Note that I will have no problem blocking you for refusing to abide by those conditions. Drmies (talk) 16:18, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Stuff like this, with no verification--unacceptable. Drmies (talk) 16:34, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 3 days for continuing to violate WP:BLP as explained by User: Drmies. I understand that you think you're doing something useful here, but for living people we cannot casually throw around categories like this. Please rethink your approach and engage in some dialogue rather than trying to edit war in your preferred categories to articles. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  Qwyrxian (talk) 22:40, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
