Hurricane Tour[edit]

The tour is not being redirected due to notability but lack of material. At present the article is nothing more than a list of tour dates and a set list, which is not sufficient to warrant an independent article. Such tours that have insufficient material are often merged with the appropriate album article. Please do not revert this again. As for quoting WP:SYNTH, this has nothing to do with this situation. This is not original research, but simply merging related material with a more appropriate article. As you can see from the AfD, merging the material was proposed then. Regards, Nouse4aname (talk) 11:18, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Stop edit warring. I have explained the reasoning perfectly clearly. What don't you understand? It is the tour in support of the album. It fits perfectly well. Try discussing rather than reverting. Nouse4aname (talk) 11:28, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
Edit warring requires two people. However, in the face of a clear explanation, your immediate revert with no discussion was rather rude. I have contributed my explanation both to your talk page and the Hurricane Tour page. If you are able to expand the article, then by all means do this, but please use either a sandbox or a "under construction" template so it doesn't look like you are just reverting to restore the original article. To explain again, as it stands the Hurricane Tour does not need a separate article - this is because it lacks sufficient content. Instead, information should be included on the album page, with a redirect in place on the Tour article. Nouse4aname (talk) 11:49, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

::Please also review WP:BRD. You made a bold edit by removing the tour section. I reverted (with a clear explanation), meaning that is the stage at which discussion begins, not after you revert to your preferred version of the article. As for "reflexively reverting", I'm afraid you are just as guilty as me in that respect. Except I have actually provided reasons for my actions. Nouse4aname (talk) 11:57, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

No need to apologise, we are both just trying to improve things - but for my part I apologise too. Anyway, I won't add the set list etc back to the album as you request. Regards, Nouse4aname (talk) 11:58, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Newton Arvin edits[edit]

You recently edited the Newton Arvin article, removing the {{mergefrom}} templates due to your personal beliefs. These have been re-added to the article.

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:45, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

  • The only "reliable sources" you added are Allmusic listings to albums where the song was covered. That does not fall under non-trivial coverage. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 01:20, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful.

Proposed deletion of Off & On[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Off & On has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Seems failing of WP:NSONG

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for removing my unreliable source. I didn't realize until you removed it that it was from a blog. I hope you understand that although we disagree I hold no hard feelings. :) -Rainbowofpeace (talk) 06:21, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Of course. :) Am86 (talk) 06:29, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Cutaway gag redirecting to Family Guy[edit]

You are the only one that keeps redirecting Cutaway gag to Family Guy. However, the page for Family Guy has "Genre: Cutaway gag humor", which makes the link self-referential. Of course, most of the pages linking there are FG related, so that's understandable. Do you plan on making the new article you suggested in Talk:Cutaway (filmmaking)? --TIB (talk) 14:28, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Please consider my comprimise[edit]

Please read and consider my comprimise on the Racism in the LGBT community page.-Rainbowofpeace (talk) 03:00, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

On the homophobia in the ethnic communities articles[edit]

What is your objection to these articles? I will make sure they are expanded and they are brand new so you can't have a problem with that. As for your why don't we have a "Homophobia in the White community" I could turn it around and ask you why don't we have a "Racism in the Cisgender Heterosexual community"? I will work to make these articles don't become racist attacks but I don't think they will be. You are welcome to make contributions to all of them. So far the Blacks and Latinos are up but after I finish those I will add ones about other American ethnic groups and then European ethnic groups as well.-Rainbowofpeace (talk) 04:11, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Am86. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:30, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
