A mention at Military history[edit]

I mentioned a revert edit that you made to the Battle of Marengo at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Military history#Unexplained edits -- PBS (talk) 09:14, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Centralia mine fire[edit]

Okay I'm a pretty reasonable guy, but I will not tolerate my last name on the internet for everyone to see easily. Please do a man a favor and honor that request. To be honest, I don't even know how the editors found my last name, but I don't want it up for display online. I want to keep myself private and I won't put up with this. I'm asking you man to man here to respect my privacy morales this once.Leoesb1032 (talk) 23:42, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

You put your own name there. Nobody else, you did that. Then you got caught with your sockpuppetry in an effort to manipulate the discussion, and now suddenly it's "private" information? I will remove it with a note explaining why it was removed, but don't try to lie and manipulate, and then come back later complaining about honour and "being a man." If you want to "keep yourself private" that is your responsibility. Don't try to manipulate talk page discussions, and don't put your name out there if you don't want your name out there. - Aoidh (talk) 00:21, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Removing talk page comments[edit]

I'm not sure if you're aware, but User:Matthewb103 is a blocked sockpuppet account of User:Leoesb1032, so it's the same person. Removing one's own Talk page comments is allowed per WP:Prune, especially private information like a user's real name. I believe that, at the time, Leoesb1032 was trying to justify his argument by introducing a fake source. It was misguided, sure, but we shouldn't punish him by requiring that his real name remain when he obviously doesn't want it there. Woodroar (talk) 23:52, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I just saw the topic above. Please consider reverting your edits. Woodroar (talk) 23:53, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
He was the editor that made that information public, but I've removed it with a note explaining why. - Aoidh (talk) 00:21, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. I know I didn't agree with removing news stations staff members, but I have recently decided to agree, and that it makes much more since now. So with that being said, I've started to remove non-notable staff members (per WP:LISTPEOPLE) from the articles as well as unsourced titles/slogans. Right now, I have a user (User:Jamesbondfan) that keeps reverting my edits without a valid reason. I had left a message on his talk page today explaining why and a quote from you from the WIBW-TV talk page. I don't want to get in an edit war with this user, so I'm reaching out to you who knows much more about these things than I do. I hope you can help. Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 19:41, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Question II[edit]

Hello. Recently I have removed the staff from KRBK and this user (Ciller) keeps reverting them, saying that I didn't say the same thing in my reverts (no reliable source and not notable). I explained to him that I said that I removed it the first time because the staff were non-notable (I even linked it to WP:LISTPEOPLE) and the second time explaining the same thing with a quote from you and the list of discussions saying that there have been discussions and there is a valid reason as to why I am removing them. He claims I'm taking ownership of the article, which I'm not. He said that he works at the station. He goes on and on and threatened to report me (here) and the list can go on. I'm not going to revert his edit because I don't want to get into an edit war. I was hoping you could explain it more to him, although I don't think he'll get the point.

P.S. – Looking at his contributions, it looks as though he hasn't been on Wikipedia long enough to know about the situation (He's been a member since 2006). (Although I hadn't heard of it either until you and Spshu told me about it.) He took a two year break, and and a two month break this year. He also makes about three–four edits a month. Just a heads up! Thanks, Corkythehornetfan (Talk) 23:49, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "KRBK". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 25 September 2014.
