Thanks for the note! There is WP:BURDEN of course. If the source isn't added, and especially is not found by a search, undo it and tell the author to add a source. Unfortunately, removal seems to be the only way to get them to do so. I do this often, and do get flack about it. You can add a subst:welcome-t or a subst:welcome-anon-t to their talk page. I also sometimes add extensive instructions on adding a citation. Cheers! Jim1138 (talk) 18:44, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Objection to your viewpoint[edit]

What do you mean "Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Tsundere. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed."?

A Tsundere is not someone who is cold and hostile to the core in the beginning and then softens up as time passes like the original post says. They were soft in the first place, but for various reasons put up the cold and hostile front to hide their true feelings, especially from the person they like. This is not just my opinion or vandalism, but has been used by others to describe various characters from various manga/anime like Asia is occasionally with Isse in "Highschool DxD" or Liliana from "Campione". That's why I included examples that could be looked up and verified. So how is something that's proven and verifiable considered vandalism and false? If I didn't think something was true, constructive, or verifiable I wouldn't have typed it in. What sources are you using that indicate I'm wrong? Let me know so I can examine them for myself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MathiasonThe5th (talkcontribs) 21:23, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

I accidentally deleted the four tildes at the end, so putting them in the re-edit.

The problem was that your text was just thrown in the middle of the lead paragraph without any sources, including the two examples. Those need to be cited by reliable sources. The original definition is cited by Patrick Galbraith in his anime encyclopedia. The analysis is better left for the body of the text. -AngusWOOF (talk) 21:49, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Please also read WP:NOR and WP:SYNTH. Statements made in the character descriptions should be cited by reliable sources, or in the case of the text itself, by the chapter or volume where it occurs. It should be simplified to what was stated in the text and not be speculated upon.
After re-reading your paragraph, I would like to retract my statement that it was vandalism. You are correct in that it does link to the topic at hand. However, it still needs to be sourced and placed in the right part of the article. The sources need to be coming from writers that quote those examples or propose different definitions. For example: "John Thompson of Manga the Complete Guide provides an alternate definition of tsundere where ...." For High School DxD you need the critic's review or analysis that cites Asia's relationship with Issei as a prominent example of tsundere behavior. Take a look at how the article quotes Excel Saga and Hetalia Axis Powers. -AngusWOOF (talk) 22:31, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
