CatchPhrase celebrity section.[edit]

Hi I just had a question about the CatchPhrase Wikipedia page. Recently, SolomanMckenzie added in a section about the celebrity episodes being broadcast and the winnings. and the like. There recently has been a crackdown on game shows like The Chase UK or Tipping Point Lucky Stars, where certain other uses have deemed episode guides and lists of celebrities to be fancruft and NOTSTATS (you can check the edit histories of both programmes). Even after this has been mentioned on both programmes, users like Soloman McKenzie likes to add in lists of Celebrities or episode guides which do get reverted. Would this section that this user has added be considered fancruft as well? This is an article for Deletion discussion that occured for a similar game show discussing it. any advice would be appreciated. (talk)samusek2~

Batch file[edit]

Please explain how I can properly add the link to to the batch file page. My compiler is my lives work. It started a software category in 2003 and it adds many useful commands to batch files that cannot be found elseware.

It also allows users to hide their batch file code and add an icon. They can raise code to ADMIN level execution status and embed their company name and copyright/version information in the file properties.

I was also trying to remove the part of the article that contains malicious batch file code in order to prevent ignoarant people sharing malicious code to hard working people. This can cost time and money to thousands of people if it is not removed. Someone could potentionally lose their job or even worst. Why was I blocked from making these changes.

I am new to editing wiki articles but I feel my changes are necessary. Please help me make these changes.

Always here to help.

semir osmanagich[edit]

What I really put are FACTS, which are always OBJECTIVE, because they are true and what is subjective is somebody's opinion... I am open to different opinions and I also included some of negative or critical opinions in a text! I have no problems with that... But, if Your whole text is based on negative opinions or few years old information INSTEAD of facts, maybe because facts include for example this person's success in some area or rewards or so then I wish to ask You: does it mean that "objectivity" in case of Mr Osmanagich for You or for the wiki? is that HAVE to be given exclusively NEGATIVE "information" and opinions about that person? Because it is obvious that ANY positive FACT, not to talk about opinion is not tolerating at all... Or?


Reverted edits[edit]

Hi Amortias,

I didnt know that edit was even real, haha! Thanks for getting rid of it, I was just trying to experiment my powers on wikipedia; Please dont delete any of my other edits though as they were all supposed to be their and they are all factual.

Kind Regards

Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents[edit]

I think you must have accidentally misread the block log for Heraldfranciscojarquin1993 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Jinotega. They were blocked at the end of January but only for 48 hours. I've reopened the section. Cheers. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 18:30, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Applies self trouting mechanism my bad cheers for the fix. Read already blocked in the section as being currently blocked not previously blocked. Amortias (T)(C) 18:33, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Not a problem. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 20:07, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Bobby Sands[edit]

I'm not entirely sure how to cite a Netflix movie, but I am confident in my change - another one of my open tabs is that movie. Any chance you could let that edit stand? I'm sure someone will know how to cite it, and I'm absolutely positive that the edit is correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:07, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Chuck me the link to the movie or the movies name and ill go digging. Will insert it fi i can find something to back it up. Amortias (T)(C) 19:11, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

It is called Art of Conflict - (I also found the IMDB page for it - not sure if the Netflix link will work, since it may be an automatically generated url for viewing purposes for one account) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:15, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

{{cite AV media | people = | title = | medium = | publisher = | location = | date = | url = }} The above would work for a movie (internet based or otherwise). If you want to add it for this yourself feel free. I'll check back in an hour or so and do it mysef if not. best to use the netflix one as IMDB isnt usually considered reliable. Amortias (T)(C) 19:25, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

I'd be more comfortable if you added it - I've always been bad at this formatting business. Also, I don't have a good way of checking if that link works for everyone, or just people connected to my Netflix account. So will you also be re-adding the edit? I figure that being discussed for ~5min in a Netflix documentary narrated by Vince Vaughn probably qualifies as "In Popular Culture" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:31, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Seems reasonable to me, I'll go get it done. Amortias (T)(C) 19:34, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Hydrofluoric acid edits[edit]

Thanks for being pleasant and constructive in reverting those hydrofluoric acid edits right now. Apparently my 8-year-old has just discovered that wikipedia has an edit button, so it's time to have some discussions about how that works :) I appreciate that I can share the revert message with her as a springboard for those discussions and it won't make her feel bad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:49, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

That's ok if you want to register an account there is a Wikipedia Adventure aimed at younger editors that might be of interest to them. I'm not sure it would work with an IP account unfortunately as it asks you to edit some pages that aren't always available for ip editing. Amortias (T)(C) 12:58, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

It wasn't a test![edit]

I was trying to make my own response to the ANI before my OP disappeared. Please leave it alone. (talk) 18:37, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Your edit was reverted as it removed over 18000 bytes of information from the page. I assumed it was a test or accident so reverted it to prevent disruption. Amortias (T)(C) 18:38, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

American Youth Foundation[edit]

Just a reminder to check the page history before CSD'ing a page such as this. You'll notice I already CSD'ed it and the author ahd removed it, so I removed your tag and restored my revision. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 19:09, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi EoRdE6, thats fine I did check the history as was sent their via the edit filter for removal of speedy tags. I didnt restore the tag that was removed as G7 seemed as valid a reason and less open to disagreement with by the editor. No problem with the change though.

Myron Cohen article[edit]

Amortias: My edit was not a test. It was an error I was attempting to correct in the article "Myron Cohen," in which his home was erroneously listed at New York City. It was in fact New City, NY. I referred to the New York Times obituary as the source for correct info, which is listed at the end of the article. In other words, the source for my correction is already listed on the Wiki article. --Mismanagingeditor (talk) 01:55, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @Mismanagingeditor: Then you need to add it to your edit also, see Same reference used more than once. Mlpearc (open channel) 02:15, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
