Orphaned non-free image File:Golden Axe character select.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Golden Axe character select.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 20:20, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Jake Adelstein‎. Thank you. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 03:07, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Neither poorly referenced nor controversial. bridies (talk) 10:00, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Jake Adelstein. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. About Goto, not about Adelstein. Clearly poorly referenced (sourced only to Adelstein), and clearly controversial. Please do not re-insert this material again. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 19:56, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Again, verifiable and uncontroversial. I await that block... bridies (talk) 21:03, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Fighting game[edit]

It's not a proper noun, it's not a mass noun, and it's singular. I don't see how "a" isn't the right determiner. TheStickMan[✆Talk] 15:27, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

A fighting game is a singular, non-mass noun. "Fighting" is the genre. Unless you want to change the article title to something like "Fighting (video game genre)" (something that I don't think would be a good idea), the lead should probably begin with "A fighting game is a video game which ..." instead of "Fighting game is a genre".

Hi Bridies, I saw you reverted my edit on China on the basis that I have somehow upset the "current article status quo". Wikipedia is based on facts, not opinions, and my support of the change that Trust Is All You Need made is based on the facts documented in the constitution of the People's Republic of China. I suggest that anyone who wants to discuss this should do so on on the Talk:China page. Best,  Philg88 talk 22:34, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

South Yemen[edit]

Hi Bridies. Noticed you have been dealing with User:Trust Is All You Need's recent "People's Democratic Republic" crusade over at China and Vietnam. Wondering if you could give me a hand dealing with him over at Talk:South Yemen? Keep up the good fight. GrahamNoyes (talk) 20:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Because you thanked me[edit]

Thanks extension ThankYou.png Bridies, you thanked me for one of my recent edits, so here is a heart-felt...
It's a pleasure, and I sincerely hope that you enjoy your continued improvement of this inspiring encyclopedia! – Paine Ellsworth CLIMAX!
