How you can help

Hi, Anaphoto! Welcome to Wikipedia! I'd be more than happy to help you with your editing, and I'm sure Plastikspork would too. Before we proceed, let's clarify a few things:

First, Plastikspork never said that he wasn't sure how to gauge the material's validity "not because it isn't true simply because he doesn't know because he isn't in the fashion market, so he doesn't care to know". Whether material is valid for inclusion is based on whether it adheres to Wikipedia policies, such as WP:NOTE, WP:V, WP:NOR, WP:IRS, WP:SECONDARY, and so forth. The validity of an editor's edits is not predicated on personal knowledge on their part, but on whether they examine the material and the sources cited for it. If, for example, someone adds a sentence to an article on space travel, fashion, or 19th century Mongolian transvestism, and cites an online article in The New York Times for a source, all an editor has to do is read that article to see if it supports that material. They do not need to be an expert on those topics to edit articles on it. If this were the case, then I would not be able to edit articles on entertainment or science, as my user page indicates. Similarly, Plastikspork does not need to be a fashion expert, nor you a space travel expert. Disagreeing with one's edits because of your perception that they lack expertise is an ad hominem argument, and actually one of the types of arguments that is believed to typify violations of the WP:OWN policy. What Plastikspork said was that he intended to examine the article in more depth when he had the time, but asked me if I could do so in the mean time, which is the right approach.

Second, I am not aware that Plastikspork does nothing but delete material and does not add to articles, as I've become familiar with his edits over the past couple of years, and have not observed this. If any editor deletes material, the key is to see what policy, guideline or principle of good writing they cited for doing so, and then deciding whether they were properly interpreting that policy/guideline when doing so. If you believe they weren't, try discussing it with them on the article's talk page, and if you can't come to an agreement, then invite others to join the discussion to give their views. You might notice that I myself removed the ciation of Birleanu's official website in the article's opening sentence as a supporting source for calling him a supermodel, because this violates WP:SECONDARY, WP:SELFPUB and WP:NOTADVERT. While sources published by the subject of an article can be cited to support some material, like where they grew up, what their beliefs are, etc., any material that may have the potential to be self-aggrandizing or self-promotional should always cite a secondary source. This isn't because I'm prone to deletion; I was just following a valid policy. Conversely, I would say that I do quite a bit of "replanting", as does Plastikspork.

Lastly, vandalism is a deliberate attempt to disrupt Wikipedia. Good faith edits, even ones you disagree with, are never vandalism, even if it is at some point determined that you are correct and the other editor is wrong. Again, examine what policies or principles Plastikspork cited a his rationales for his edits, and then if you feel he was not adhering correctly to those policies, explain to him why you disagree. Merely being responsible for most of an article's edits is not a violation of any Wikipedia rule or guideline; if it were, well then I'd be guilty where a few articles are concerned! :-)

Regarding some of the edits in question, let's look at some of the examples:

  • The link used to support the assertion in the opening sentence that he's a supermodel appears to be a dead link.
  • The link used to support the quote that characterizes him has a "true bad boy" does not mention this.
  • One passage Plastikspork removed read "With style and confidence in his work and approach on set, Birleanu outsmart and outshoot the entire cast eliminating 14 models." This is clearly an opinion, and the cited source did not support it. Even when a source does support comments like this, it is important to note whether it is one person's opinion, or whether it reflects a widely-held view. This is why, for example, articles on films will often quote the film's score on Rotten Tomatoes, and quote some specific reviews here and there, but will not quote only one review, without placing that review in context of the film's general reception. When a quote like the one that was in the Birleanu article comes from one person, it is highly important to gauge whether that person is an expert who's considered a reputable source on the subject in question, or just one person whose view may or may not do so.

In short, Plastikspork's edits appear to be solid, and do not constitute a "vendetta". In any event, if you disagree with him, then try talking to him. Accusing him of having a vendetta in your edit summary is a clear violation of WP:Assume Good Faith and WP:No Personal Attacks. Try to work things out with him, and read up on the policies he cites to you. Nightscream (talk) 22:54, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I have performed a search with the contents of Supreme Rocket Productions, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Supreme Rocket Productios. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. MadmanBot (talk) 07:37, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Removing AfD template[edit]

Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion pages, as you did with Supreme Rocket Productions. Doing so won't stop the discussion from taking place. You are, however, welcome to comment about the proposed deletion on the appropriate page.

Please stop. Continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Andre Birleanu, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your account being blocked from editing. ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 15:34, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Not your articles[edit]

Please be advised that Wikipedia is a wiki in which anyone is able to edit. To that extent, we have a Wikipedia:Ownership of articles policy that explicitly says that no single person owns articles here. In a sense, articles such as Supreme Rocket Productions are not your articles; once you hit the "save page" button, it becomes the community's articles and may be edited in any way deemed fit and within common sense and our basic guidelines and policies. If you cannot understand that, then I'm afraid that Wikipedia will not be the place for you. Regards, --MuZemike 22:11, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you remove Articles for deletion notices or comments from articles and Articles for deletion pages, as you did at Supreme Rocket Productions, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 04:11, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Andre Birleanu. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 14:28, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. This is not a minor edit, as you have suggested in the editing notes: [2]. ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 14:29, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at Andre Birleanu, you may be blocked from editing. ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 01:46, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
