May I suggest that you stop editing the Canada article?[edit]

First, you're at three reverts (and so am I). Second, you're making fundamental mistakes in WP:OVERLINKing and like italicizing songs, which are to be quoted instead. Third, you're going against consensus reached on the talk page in linking North America and other changes. You should feel free to discuss your proposed changes on the article's talk page though. 21:26, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to an article, specifically Canada, may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. See Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2013 July 31. --Stefan2 (talk) 09:29, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello there Azertopius - you may have noticed your new additions to the Canada article have been reverted. At this point can we get you to propose changes on the articles talk page. Being an FA country article there has been many many talk about how to present the article let alone the many policies we should follow. -- Moxy (talk) 11:20, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
Need you to listen to others please - do not make the same edits over and over when they have been contested. -- Moxy (talk) 19:21, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
You have been asked here before. Your changes are not correct. Please do not make them any longer. You may be blocked if you you continue. Walter Görlitz (talk) 06:11, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

And one more thing, edits like this, where you pretend to work on one section of the article but actually edit other parts as well, are not acceptable. The fact that the edit is against two separate MoSes is also unacceptable. Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Music states that songs, whether classical or popular, should be contained in quotes, not italics. Also WP:QUOTEMARK, which is part of Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Titles states that songs should be in quotations. Rather than state (or think, since you don't tend to use edit summaries) that other articles use italics for their national anthems, simply change those that use italics to use quotes and applying the MoS to them rather than applying something wrong to the few that are correct.

Come on. WP:OVERLINKing and other bad edits. Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:20, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

You did it yet again. Canada did not become independent from the UK in 1867. You even incorrectly changed content that was referenced. Walter Görlitz (talk) 04:13, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Information icon Constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, but a recent edit of yours to the page Canada has an edit summary that appears to be inaccurate or inappropriate. Please use edit summaries that accurately tell other editors what you did, and feel free to use the sandbox for any tests you may want to do. Thank you.

April 2014[edit]

I've Had to undo your last few edits. In the case of the 'nation ' changes a simple check on the talk pages would have pointed you to previous discussions. The other two appear to be your unsupported assertions. One edit was incorrectly labeled as minor. Please be more careful in future and if you need help ask ----Snowded TALK 09:49, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

United Kingdom[edit]

Hi, I see that you have re-inserted the word 'unitary' in the infobox - I've suggested people supporting the use of that term post their reasoning on the talk page. You will need either convincing references or else substantive evidence that it is in common and widespread usage. Thanks. Jamesinderbyshire (talk) 10:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Robert McClenon. I noticed that you recently removed some content from United States without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Removal of content from the infobox should be discussed on the talk page. Please discuss the infobox issue on the talk page. Robert McClenon (talk) 22:56, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
