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 Titanic (1997 film) , did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use your 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. -- Doniago (talk) 14:05, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Hello, I'm Jesse V.. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! • Jesse V.(talk) 14:59, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
I undid your edits because the picture that you put at the top is already in the article, along with several other similar views of the exterior.
The reason that the Panini picture has been used as the lead is that it is one of the highest quality depictions of the interior, showing the details and the grand scale better than any photo does. Good external views, on the other hand, are a dime a dozen. Every tourist has them.
Another reason why the painting is in top place is that it doesn't fit conveniently into the tightly organised text of the article. The interior views that are reproduced, further down, have been carefully selected as a "set" of images. To a graphic designer, making the layout and sections look good is part of creating a successful article.
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Top Crime (TV channel), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cold blood (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
I removed the Colosseum photo - and shall do so again - because it's uninformative and overcrowds the article. It shows only the outside of the building; the details are further concealed by darkness and the shape is completely distorted by the wide-angle view. One might say that it's all atmosphere and little substance. For the most part, article lede sections are best supported by very clear, well-chosen images that illustrate the topic. The Arles amphitheatre picture is particularly clear, well framed and appropriate - it offers a vantage point that reveals both the inside and the outside of an ancient amphitheater building still in use. In other words, it's both ancient and modern, and covers the topic rather nicely. Please could you also remember to always use edit summaries when editing articles - when you simply revert like you did, it starts to look like edit warring. Thanks for reading this.

Doing the right thing
Adriano, you have been editting for two years now. And after two years you are still not looking carefully at the articles that you edit. You have to start looking at the way that articles are put together. They do not start with a quote, regardless of how good the quote is. Every single article starts by telling you what the subject of the article is. That is because this is an encyclopedia, not a work of creative literature.
Secondly, as I have said to you before, look before doing. If you had looked, you would have found a section specifically for quotations.
Also, "Without having seen the Sistine Chapel is not possible to form an idea of what a valuable man alone is able to obtain." The quotation is wrong in two places. The word "valuable" is incorrectly translated, and the word "obtain" is incorrectly translated. You are most welcome to add the quotation, if it is not somewhere in the article already. But firstly, find a good English translation of the German, because a man is not usually referred to as "valuable", and the word "obtain" means to "get something", not to "do something" or "achieve something".
- Adriano, your conduct is really odd! You have an explanation as to why the quote doesn't go at the top of the article. You have a direction to look for the quotation section, which is the right place to put it. And you still put the blinking quote at the top of the article. What is your problem?

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Italian food products, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages PGI and PDO (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to 2014 Nuclear Security Summit may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Please source your edits
Hi. You have been editing Wikipedia for two years, and your contributions are appreciated, but I noticed you have added content in several places without verifying it by citing a reliable source. For instance, this (no, Nanjing wall is longer) and this very recent edit (surely that's Rome, not Jerusalem?) have been reverted, as not only unsourced but apparently not factual. To be frank, I can't find anywhere where you've actually added a source; please correct me if I'm wrong. These edits seem made up. No canals on Bornholm! Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources. Bishonen | talk 09:39, 20 August 2014 (UTC).
- Re you latest edit, here: Yes, I said the Nanjing wall is longer, but *I*'m not a reliable source. And I don't know if it's the longest. You need a source before you say that. I repeat, read Wikipedia:Citing sources and don't add material without sourcing. Please. Bishonen | talk 13:46, 20 August 2014 (UTC).
And again. You have given no reference for that edit, and the reference that was already there doesn't support it. Also your change doesn't fit with the article title. Look, you'll have to stop making these unsourced and dubious additions. Since you never respond to comments here, I don't even know if you're aware that you have this talkpage. I'm sorry, but the next unsourced edit you make, I'm going to have to block you from editing. Bishonen | talk 14:03, 21 August 2014 (UTC).
Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to America's Stonehenge. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --Ken Gallager (talk) 18:41, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
