BlueStacks License section removed.[edit]

What specifically are you objecting ? If there is something specific please consider editing the content rather than removing it.

  • Anyone who has considered using it or read the existing wiki knows that it runs android.
  • Android is licensed under Apache license.
  • Android runs the Linux kernel(GPL).
  • it uses an open-source zip and unzip utility just to start amongst other things which can be found by simply looking at the files.
  • Virtual Box is Licensed under GPL.

If such a simple inference cannot be stated, then I'm not sure how any page on Wiki would operate. Please clarify.

If it's true and relevant to the article it shouldn't have to be "inferred", that's a synthesis of sources. There's also no source that I could find saying that "most of it is actually open source software". - Aoidh (talk) 04:08, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
In case you believe that there is something lacking in the text that's written, the best course of action would be to edit and correct what you think is not correct. Reverting an entire edit is not a acceptable course of action to be adapted by a seasoned editor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.110.196.11 (talk) 01:50, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
The entire edit was the problem; the sum of the text was written in a way that accused the article's subject of something that reliable sources do not verify. That's why the entire edit was reverted, because the entire edit was the problem. - Aoidh (talk) 04:39, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
actually I cited proper sources for that, they are also presented at the begining of this talk. But since you object I'll put the edit back in minus the inference.Philosopher kat (talk) 08:29, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
You did indeed cite proper sources, but the way it was worded was pure WP:SYNTH, which is not permitted. Merely having sources isn't enough, it has to reflect what the sources are actually saying, not combined to present a viewpoint not given by any of the sources. - Aoidh (talk) 08:36, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

LARP DAY[edit]

Lazlo070808 Hi I noticed that you cancel my note on larp day. I get you another reference. http://nordiclarp.org/2014/03/26/international-larp-pride-day/ (all Nordic Larp Site: Danmark, Sweden, etc...) and the about page of larpday.org: http://larpday.altervista.org/about.html - I can't get you the Italian discussion on Facebook ‘cause I think it will be unuseful. Is that sufficient for a reconsideration? Anyway By and thanks for you work.

Wow[edit]

Discussing bitcoin on the talk page is "edit warring"? Who am I at "war" with - according to you? Various editors are discussing bitcoin´s status as a currency or not on the talk page. Is that not what is suppose to happen. If I am not allowed to discuss the question on the talk page, then what must I do - according to you? TwoEscarf (talk) 15:54, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I really truly have no idea what you're talking about. Are you sure I'm the editor whose talk page you intended to place this comment on? - Aoidh (talk) 19:14, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Spam?[edit]

Before stating an assumption as fact, be sure you know what you are talking about. You stated that I was "adding inappropriate external links" intended to "advertise" or "promote" and implied that I was somehow doing this to "alter search engine rankings". In the article in question, Massage, I simply linked to a webpage with information on the "Benefits of Massage Therapy". It is true there were products for sale on the site, but then again, you can also buy things at Encyclopedia Britannica, The Wall Street Journal, and National Geographic. The information was completely relevant to the article and not intended to be promotional in any way.

As for trying to influence "search engine rankings", that is the least of my concerns, as I am in no way affiliated with that website. I simply saw some good information I thought would improve the article. You can believe whatever you want; this is a free country. But before you start making accusations and pointing fingers, you may want to be sure that what you're saying is accurate.

To be completely honest, I can't help but laugh when I see self-proclaimed "super mods", like yourself massively overhauling the content other people add here. You probably have no real life and sit at your desk all day looking for things to attack in Wikipedia. Your self-inflated ego makes you a jerk and you do it all under the guise of "protecting" the integrity of Wikipedia. I'll probably get a ban for this, but I really don't care. I actually have a life and being unable to edit content on Wikipedia doesn't bother me a bit...

You were adding inappropriate links to various articles, all from the same website. A message was therefore placed on your talk page asking you to stop, and explaining why, if you did it for certain reasons, it wouldn't be effective. I'm sorry that you feel the need to attack others to make your point, but you persistently added an inappropriate external link for a specific business to multiple articles on Wikipedia (even reverting others who removed it), and this business just happens to be in the same exact location that you're editing from; that does raise a few red flags concerning spam. However, if this is your reaction after being asked to stop, that speaks more to your behavior than anything else. Please stop adding that link to Wikipedia articles, that's all I was asking and all I continue to ask. If you feel that it does belong, you're more than welcome to start a discussion at the external links noticeboard. - Aoidh (talk) 05:40, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
I believe we are already having a discussion. You speak of my behavior and insinuate I am "attacking others", but I am simply calling it like I see it. Take a moment to review the other complaints you've received, some of which seem pretty credible to me. Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you have gone a little overboard with your editing at times? Stating to another complaint that "the entire article" was your problem after deleting it seems pretty overkill to me. As someone who both creates and edits content for a living, I have come across very little that cannot be fixed or improved. To simply delete the article because you don't like it seems lazy to me, especially with the term "editor" in your professed Wikipedia designation.
As for the links I added, despite the fact that the pages were on a business website, the content being linked to was informative and totally relevant to the articles I added them to. And they were added to the "Further Reading" section, located after the actual article. On the Massage article, I linked to a page that discussed the benefits of massage in detail.
Let's take a moment to switch places. I am the "editor" and make it my job to weed out everything I find inappropriate or irrelevant. Now, let's take your [WikiProject Buddhism] for instance. By all rights, I should completely delete that "Buddhism articles by quality and importance" section because not one of the links you've added work. In fact, I'd wager that were I to sift through everything you've contributed to Wikipedia, I'd find quite a few things to "edit".
The funny thing about people is that they love addressing the faults and problems of others while completely overlooking their own...
74.100.109.136 (talk) 18:30, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
You don't seem too interested in discussing the merits of the link, but rather attacking others ("calling it like I see it" doesn't suddenly make it otherwise). I do not have the technical capacity to delete an article, so it's pretty obvious that you're jumping to (inaccurate) conclusions based on assumptions; when you said "before stating an assumption as fact, be sure you know what you are talking about," that's advice you should probably follow. You added spam to multiple articles, that you think it's relevant to those articles doesn't make it so, nor does it make it a reliable source of information. Phone books are "informative and totally relevant" to articles, that doesn't make them appropriate for inclusion in an encyclopedia article. If I were to start spamming a business that's in the same exact city as I am, I'd quickly get called out on it, and if I resorted to attacking others in response, it would be very difficult for others to take me seriously.
I'm rather confused by your reference to WikiProject Buddhism; if you think content there doesn't belong, please start a discussion on that talk page and explain you're reasoning so that others can explain to you why your "by all rights" reasoning is inaccurate. Otherwise, I can only assume that you're just on my talk page lashing out because the links to your business were removed after you added them, and now you're grasping at straws as a result. Again, I'm going to point you towards Wikipedia:External links/Noticeboard, as that would be the place where you can ask other editors whether that link belongs or not. Since you've made it clear now that you're not interested in productive discussion here, I'm going to ask you to please refrain from commenting on my talk page. Thank you. - Aoidh (talk) 21:03, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Please forgive my final intrusion here. Just wanting to clarify my comment about the [WikiProject Buddhism] Page. On that page, there is a section entitled "Buddhism articles by quality and importance", in table format, with a bunch of links. As someone who is fascinated by religion and having studied Buddhism pretty extensively, I was curious about those articles. At the time, none of those links worked. Every one of them lead to a blank page, which is why I referred to the page. I just checked the page again and the links now work; not sure why they didn't work before, unless someone fixed them. In any event, I apologize for being a jerk and taking up so much of your time. take care... 74.100.109.136 (talk) 01:51, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Flipnote Studio 3D / Leopard[edit]

Unfortunately, that "leopard" was definitely me. (Insert sheepish grin.) I too am an xkcd fan, and occasionally use a browser plugin to find and replace words. Including "keyboard/leopard." I don't know how long ago it was, but in the future I will remember to turn that off before I edit Wikipedia!

I'm sure you've noticed by now but most of my Wikipedia editing has been focused on Flipnote Studio 3D, and I'd like to improve it in any way possible. If you could look over the article and let me know if there are any problems (anything that would stop it from becoming a Good Article) that I can fix, I would appreciate that a lot!

Angelo Rules removed[edit]

Hello Aoidh,

You've removed some sections of the article Angelo Rules. I don't understand what's the issue about the information I put on this page. They are neutral informations such as the list of episodes or description of characters and it's not a promotional content at all. My source is indeed the official website of the series but as I sent recently an email to 'permissions-en@wikimedia.org' to allow the uses of this copyrighted content without rewriting it with other words, I would like to ask you to delete your removal. Thank you, Constance — Preceding unsigned comment added by Constance Lassort (talkcontribs) 09:30, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
