JudithFisherFreed[edit]

There is a problem with COI and inappropriately marking edits as minor, but I see nothing that could be considered vandalism. If you disagree, please address this issue at User talk:JudithFisherFreed. Thanks. Sundayclose (talk) 01:54, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Hey Amaury, don't worry man, no need to edit-war on a vandals own talk page. He's just getting off on the attention since that's all he's able to do now.

Moosehadley 03:36, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Reverting obvious vandalism is exempt from WP:3RR. Repeated personal attacks count as vandalism. The user has now been hard blocked and cannot edit their talk page, in any case. - Amaury (talk) 03:42, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Just an aside; You may find User:Jayron32's note on the [log] amusing :)
Moosehadley 03:50, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Yup, gave me a good chuckle as well. - Amaury (talk) 03:51, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Garissa University College attack[edit]

The source is in the edit summary. I added it again to the summary. Please include it in the article.120.62.24.165 (talk) 05:45, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

I hope its all answered now.120.62.24.165 (talk) 05:50, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Is this source reliable?[edit]

Hi, I need your help. I want to add some information on Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University.

I wanted to know that whether this source is considered reliable or not. [1]

Even though website name is Brahma Kumaris, it is not run by the organisation. This website is not associated with the organisation so it is 3rd party source.

I am new to wikipedia. You have lot of experience. I want to know can that source be added as reference?

I will only take information in home page NOT from threads.

Ghostwriters[edit]

New here to Wikipedia editing -- could not find a tab to start a new thread on this Talk: Amaury page, so I am placing this here:

re GHOSTWRITER page:

I did a great deal of work on this page today -- only to later discover 2 changes by Fresh Sullivan and Amaury, and their comments in TALK.

1) No humor was intended. Please clarify what was interpreted as humor. (Fresh Sullivan))

2) Nor was any edit by me considered non-constructive or vandalism. (Amaury) I am new here but can see from a few links that vandalism is a common charge. Please clarify this in relation to what I did today on this page -- unless this was a mistake.

From my point of view, I took this very rough article and remolded it into what I felt was useful, even vital, in an understanding of this business. I kept whatever I could of what was there and tried to work with it. I spent hours on this work, today.

I am a professional ghostwriter. An outsider (non-ghostwriter) cannot comment fully on this business. It is a complex business, and hardly understood by those not in it for a serious long while; nor by those who act merely as middlemen and do not also write; nor by those who perhaps did not have several decades in other aspects of publishing in order to understand the business globally, as I do, and how ghosting fits into the matrix of publishing.

As far as I could tell -- one objection made by Amaury was to making a paragraph that had been taking almost verbatim from the Manhattan Literary website into a quote, attributed to that co. I am new here as a Wikipedia editor and perhaps there is a rule I overlooked. Better to quote it, I thought, and note the source.

Where was the joke? (There is also such a thing as insightful humor; or jokes can be a mere byproduct of a good point.) Maybe this criticism was made in relation to someone else using an IP address confused as mine.

Please clarify. Ghostwriting is my profession and a big part of my life, so I take this seriously. This page was in dire need of help, and I don't wish to be alienated so early in my editing experience.

I am certainly willing to learn rules here -- again, I am new to this. But to do so much work and have people ready to attack it (NB: reverting to what I myself did -- the reversion is to what I wrote, not someone else) and not add anything substantial??? I know this is the nature of the deal here, that anyone can edit -- but please be clear.- Mariwiki77

Reversion - Reply[edit]

No worries, we well-intended users are born to: 1 - get along well; 2 - work for the good of the project. Mission accomplished here, don't be afraid to revert me when I incur in a mistake (which I have/will have).

Happy week, from Portugal --84.90.219.128 (talk) 19:04, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Why did you undo it on DayalBagh page ?[edit]

Tell me very clearly

Whatever i said, was it incorrect ??

Only yes or NO.

i posted correct information as per my opinion, and also i posted various LINKS too , that too from the WebSite of this Organisation, was it all incorrect ???


please reply, — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.143.240.5 (talk) 20:01, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Occold[edit]

Hi there, I am the person who edited the page on the village of Occold.Unfortunately there was not much to go on with the history of the village, so I had to put a past residents extract on so there was a brief history of the village on the page. The extract is from http://historyofsuffolk.co.uk/Occold/index1865.shtml. The other information is general knowledge, e.g. I know the dialling code and postal town. All the information I have stated is completely correct, so if possible can you undo your edit. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.4.76.117 (talk) 20:45, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

I do not understand why all these warnings[edit]

I've edited the article (Jalil Hanoon) and then asked for me to add sources and I do, why all of these warnings and threats? ميناء (talk) 21:21, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hello. Thanks for this edit. The user is not understanding what I'm saying and is just mad that it can't be listed like that in the Today Show article. I'm not sure how to get it across this editor, and as I told him/her, I might take it to a noticeboard. I'm done reverting for now as I don't want that to cause a problem if I do take it there. Corky | Chat? 01:52, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Edward Snowden[edit]

Your revert to my edits of Edward Snowdon page are inaccurate, there are new interviews out and this man has committed negligence, please desist from reverting my edits! 86.134.169.7 (talk) 06:08, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Please provide reliable sources, then, to back up your edits. Otherwise, they are considered disruptive. - Amaury (talk) 06:10, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Serfdom in Russia[edit]

Dear Amaury, your reverts to Serfdom in Russia are very wrong: the user wrote a paragraph, then added a correction to that paragraph, was (erroneously) reverted by the bot, reverted back, and you wrote him a scalding message reverting the changes back to the bot version. This is wrong, because the bot was clearly in error. Please try to be more careful when you revert. Thanks. Tiphareth (talk) 06:16, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Still figuring things out[edit]

Hi hope I am doing this right. I am getting warned for making a bad change. But I don't understand why - could you please explain. SOmeone is making the article totally untrue - and in the talk page everyone agrees. Then the man called the other people "idiot" and "ass" but I amm the Oone who got warned!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cavalierman (talkcontribs) 06:03, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Coert[edit]

I am new to Wikipedia, fixing my schools page per asignment and also doing a bit of history my own, and i accidently made the Coert page meaning to make a Coert Van Voorhees page which I have subsequently made. The Coert page can be deleted for the information has been moved to the correct page at Coert Van Voorhees. Thank You.MattVoorhees15 (talk) 00:59, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

British Academy Film Awards[edit]

Hello, You are right concerning the article relating The British Film Academy Awards, it makes the page look untidy, BAFTA is just the nickname ,like some people call the American Academy awards as Oscar. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.15.25 (talk) 03:30, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hounding[edit]

I understand your post to my talk page. Dougweller and Shibbolethink have been hounding me. I asked them nicely to stop even letting them know I would seek disciplinary actions if they didn't. Instead of stopping they've gotten worse. I am new to Wikipedia and you can follow my editing history for only a few days about topics I believe wikipedia users may be interested in more information. You will see they hounded me from the first post and have continued to do so. Instead of encouraging me to do better these two editors inject their personal points of view through disruptive editing and eliminate well sourced citations if they are critical of their point of view. This does not enhance Wikipedia, in fact it perpetuates one of the greatest criticisms and that is editors who bully others into either leaving entirely or giving up. It in no way improves the neutrality of the articles. In fact, one article I was working on sounded so much like a press release it was disgusting and include virtully no citations yet these two Wikihounders were perfectly happy with it. All I've done is reply in the same way as they have replied to me. I would expect better from experienced Wikipedia users.66.190.249.59 (talk) 22:14, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

@66.190.249.59: I can certainly understand your frustrations, but inappropriately templating a regular is not the way to go. If you personally feel these users have stepped out of line, you're more than free to create a report at WP:AN/I or WP:AN/EW (whichever you feel is appropriate -- the latter is for edit-warring) and get opinions from uninvolved editors. - Amaury (talk) 22:19, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Puberty starts at age 9 for girls[edit]

It does your incorrect and boys start at age 10 and girls start at age 9. Read the internet puberty usually occurs at age 10 for boys and 9 for girls. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jordanandpeopleyaywoohoo (talkcontribs) 22:27, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

@Jordanandpeopleyaywoohoo: You changed info that was properly sourced. If you can find another reliable source that backs up your claims, then feel free to change it or add new sentences explaining your claims. - Amaury (talk) 22:32, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Jordanandpeopleyaywoohoo (talk · contribs), you should reply in this section, not how you did earlier; therefore, I removed your "I will report you" text. If you report Amaury, or me, it will backfire on you; see WP:BOOMERANG. The Internet is not a reliable source by itself. Sources found on the Internet, however, can be reliable. For what Wikipedia considers a reliable source, see WP:Reliable source. I already pointed you to the WP:Verifiability policy on your talk page. The content that you are changing at the Puberty article does not state that girls never begin puberty at age 9 or that boys never begin puberty at age 10; it's stating that girls usually begin puberty at age 10 or 11, and that boys usually begin puberty at age 11 or 12. And, as mentioned above, it's sourced. Flyer22 (talk) 22:54, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Imaginaerum Article[edit]

@Amaury:

Hi. What am i doing wrong? I did cite the sources for the changes i made. Please see below:

During the USA tour, singer Anette Olzon fell ill at the show in Denver on September 28th, 2012. Elize Ryd and Alissa White-Gluz, the back-up singers for Kamelot, stepped in to help perform the show. After the Denver show, NIGHTWISH posted the following message on its Facebook page: "We were in hell [yesterday]. Vocalist in a hospital. Show about to be canceled... But nobody gave up an inch. With the help from the ladies Elize and Alissa from KAMELOT, we actually managed to pull of a relaxed and great show! The crowd doing the mass karaoke with the band playing was absolutely amazing. We were humbled and grateful at the same time. This is unity and help from friends and fans."<ref>http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/nightwish-in-denver-a-night-without-anette-olzon/</ref> Two days later, Anette Olzon was let go from the band with Floor Jansen being called to finish the tour in her place.<ref>http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/it-s-official-nightwish-parts-ways-with-singer-anette-olzon/</ref> Floor Jansen was announced as the new singer of Nightwish in October 2013.<ref>http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/nightwish-mainman-says-floor-jansen-was-asked-to-become-permanent-member-in-june/</ref> — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.71.46.189 (talk) 03:01, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

User talk:4rallyhealth[edit]

I just wanted to clarify the high level vandal warning for this edit. I know the username is a violation of policy which they were already warned about, but this edit was a good faith edit following policy for a COI editor.- McMatter (talk)/(contrib) 00:19, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Mcmatter: Not sure why it did a level four. I don't see any active warnings on their page, so it should have been a level one warning. - Amaury (talk) 04:34, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Clarification on requested article[edit]

I'm trying to request an article so I made an edit to the article Wikipedia:Requested articles/Business and economics/Companies per the instructions on Wikipedia:Requested articles. I was not trying to engage in vandalism. Please advise if there's a different process I need to follow in order to request a new article. Thanks! 4rallyhealth (talk) 00:22, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Shyama Mukerjee 'chalenge'[edit]

Thanks for your help[edit]

Thank you for your help in keeping Don Lane (Santa Cruz)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Lane_%28Santa_Cruz%29 honest and as negotiated on October 15 2014. They have added this sentence: "The following paragraph was written by a political opponent of Lane who has decided to take up 25 percent of Lane's biography with his obsession with a minor event from more than 25 years ago that is not accurately described. The references cited do not actually verify all of the contents of this paragraph:" which is patently untrue. I am not the political opponent they are referring to though I do oppose many of Lane's policies and decisions. I have added this after the above inserted sentence: "The previous sentence is not true as evidenced by the following links and direct quotes."

It's funny how Don Lane and his team are so upset about this episode that they lie about it. It's also funny that Don Lane refers to it in a jokingly condescending manner in a recent fluff piece about him in a local paper: http://www.gtweekly.com/index.php/santa-cruz-news/santa-cruz-local-news/6203-on-his-terms.html

I think you're playing wikipedia like a game. It's not a game.

You are probably a nice-enough person, but you're playing me like you'd play space-invaders. Maybe I'm actually trying to do something here - certainly not 'vandalising'.

I'm happy to discuss it, but I think it's likely you'll just revert this without answering - let's see...
