Malakia[edit]

Why have you reverted my last edit? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.110.9.18 (talk) 00:05, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps it would be good to have a look at the RfC on Talk:Malakia regarding an article that was/is supposed to be about the Greek word. Esoglou (talk) 06:51, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Motion Picture Association of America film rating system[edit]

In regards to your revert of my edit to the Language section of the article, exactly how was the article "better" before my edit? There have been many PG films with uses of the word "shit," a noted example being The Sandlot. Please review your revert and get back to me on why it is valid.

Accidental reintroduction of vandalism[edit]

Hello, you seem to have accidentally re-introduced vandalism in this edit. Please be more careful in the future. Graham87 01:43, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. Thanks for notifying me, and for not getting angry. I guess I was way too hasty on that one. B14709 (talk) 22:25, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Tariq Chow article[edit]

Hello. Thank you for leaving me a message about my edits, but I believe the changes I made were in line with policies regarding WP:BLP and WP:NOTE as explained in the edit comment I left.

The links provided as sources do not mention hardly any of the content the article claims they cite, and as a result most of the information is unverified. Is it not policy to remove articles about living persons if they are not verified or notable? The BLP policy states that ALL un-cited info should be removed immediately, which I did, so I consider your revert to be incorrect and not taking these things into account. Please do correct me if I am wrong.

Here's the line in the BLP policy: Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced – whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable – should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.200.22.131 (talk) 22:37, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me of your rationale. I incorrectly assumed that you were removing content without good reason, but I now realize I was wrong. Feel free to revert my edit or delete the unsourced material. Again, thank you for helping to make Wikipedia a better place, and for putting up with idiots like me.

May 2014[edit]

Good morning person. Whilst my previous edits may have appeared to be vandalism, it is aimed at the Scottish National Party; a poitical party that spreads so much blatant lies and, pardon my French, bollocks that their dark underbelly should be known to the whole world and it's occupants. The SNP are a bubble of propaganda and I will make it my duty to burst them. Before you wonder - No, I am not drunk. Much censored love, person. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 31.53.172.103 (talk) 00:22, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Please see WP:NPOV --Lixxx235 (talk) 20:33, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. While you may find the SNP demagogic and deceitful, Wikipedia aims to be both neutral and inoffensive. Thanks for notifying me of your rationale. B14709 (talk) 22:19, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

I can add whatever I want[edit]

I can add whatever material I damn like and I don't care what anyone thinks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.83.253.184 (talk) 00:47, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)You can add whatever you want, at risk of being blocked and reverted for not following WP:POLICY. Or you can conform to WP:POLICY and be a contributing member of Wikipedia. --Lixxx235 (talk) 20:36, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Krav Maga[edit]

University of Oregon page revisions[edit]

Appreciate the feedback about the edits.

My point in making them is to point out that the U of O's claims of being a "flagship" university are patently untrue, and that by any meaningful measure, that distinction belongs to Oregon STATE University. The fact that "flagship university" is boilerplate language on their press releases simply does not make it so. Hopefully that language will be edited from the original page, or at least noted as a disputed claim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.25.123.137 (talk) 03:13, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry about chiming in, but I did always think it was strange that OS and UO claimed flagship status. Besides: OS was first: but the VERY first was Western Oregon :D Corporatemonster (talk) 04:16, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining your edits. I reverted them not because I'm pro-UO or anti-OS, but because I thought that they were pushing a certain viewpoint (WP:NPOV). If you want to clear this up and discuss this on the talk page, that would be great. Again, thanks for responding! B14709 (talk) 22:13, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Article refused for publication[edit]

Dear B14709 Thanks for the review of my article submitted last month. I'm not sure to clearly understand why the article was refused for publication. Could you please be more clear in your comments? See below the actual comments:

User:Dinignako/European registry and network for Intoxication type Metabolic DiseasesBold text


Submission declined on 11 May 2014 by B14709 (talk). This article is unstructured and does not effectively confirm the subject's notability. Declined by B14709 15 days ago. Last edited by B14709 15 days ago. Reviewer: Inform author.

Resubmit Please note that if the issues are not fixed, the draft will be rejected again.


Thanks again and hope to ear from you very soon. Dinignako — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dinignako (talkcontribs) 15:40, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for asking me after I accidentally confused you! I responded with another comment on the submission's page, and hopefully I cleared up any uncertainties. If you have any questions, then just ask them here. Again, thanks for responding, and for creating the submission in the first place; it is editors like you who improve Wikipedia.

Historical Changes to iXsystems (formerly known as BSDi)[edit]

Hey, thanks for keeping the peace! I meant no harm with my update. Just attempting to include the historical evolution of this company. It's been around since 1991, was acquired by FreeBSD Mall in 2002, and then FreeBSD Mall was acquired by OffMyServer (iXsystems) in 2003. With that kind of corporate hot-potato going on it's been super difficult to keep this page up to date. How should I proceed with these updates in the future? Including the most current and missing historical information about the company makes for a better and more accurate representation of reality. How should I proceed from here? I'm just trying to be a helpful citizen :)

Namesjixon (talk) 00:50, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Whoa, I don't know. iXsystems seems like a successor to BSD, so I think we should probably keep it as a separate section for now. Personally, I'm not very familiar with the company, so if you could help, that would be awesome! B14709 (talk) 00:55, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, okay... No worries. I'm here to help! So when a company gets acquired, the new company becomes the "Successor" and a new wiki article should be created? Sorry for the noob talk, still getting acquainted with my sea-legs.
The problem with creating a new article is that iXsystems currently redirects to BSDi - is there a way you can revert that?
best,
Namesjixon (talk) 01:09, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, via WP:CORP, a company is not notable if it does not have significant coverage from third-party sources. I Googled iXsystems, and the first twenty were either reviews or non-independent sources. For now, we should probably just keep it as a section of BSD. But if we do find more good sources, than iXsystems would definitely be a viable article. B14709 (talk) 01:21, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
And thanks for reminding me of the redirect. I'll improve it by linking it to the section! B14709 (talk) 01:23, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Awesome! You may find more more notable sources by Googling for "FreeNAS" and "PC-BSD" both of which are iXsystems sponsored open source projects. FreeNAS in particular seems to be a very well-known and established project in the realm of Network Attached Storage. PC-BSD, while not as well known, is another long-running open source project independently operated by Kris Moore of the FreeBSD community. Namesjixon (talk) 01:46, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. If you want to create a submission to Articles for Creation, then feel free to do so. It would be much appreciated. B14709 (talk) 01:09, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

JFRD Article[edit]

Thank you for reviewing the suggested additions to the article. The added work was removed by someone for copyright violation. I'm still trying to figure out what can and can't be added. Because the vast majority of the information is coming from the city's site. I'm not a seasoned editor, but would like to develop the JFRD article. However, I don't know what permission is needed to use that information. I have verbal consent, do I need written consent as well? Kendrick528 (talk) 05:55, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

@Kendrick528: Thanks for asking! Unfortunately, I can't answer your question very well. I declined the article because it already existed, not because of anything else. I probably don't know any more than you do in terms of copyright violations than you do. However, I'd suggest reading WP:CV for more information. Thanks, and have a good day!
