Marshall & Founding of Israel[edit]

Nice references on Marshall and Israel founding. Especially: http://www.wrmea.com/backissues/0591/9105017.htm I'm currently finishing up reading Isaacson's book "The Wise Men", which I'm sure you've already read. Thanks. Corregere (talk) 23:08, 7 January 2010 (UTC)


Morison reference at Battle of Midway[edit]

Do you have a specific page number for the Morison reference you used at Battle of Midway? The article is a Featured Article, and the bar is correspondingly higher for additions to the text. Every new addition needs a reference in the same style as existing ones. Binksternet (talk) 02:15, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

No - how about Herman Wouk's "War and Remembrance" page 324?

Comment[edit]

Hi. Regarding the Judd Gregg addition, the source seems to be the documents themselves. But a citation to a reliable source discussing the issue is needed. I've posted the content on the article talk page and would be happy to discuss it there. Cheers. ChildofMidnight (talk) 05:38, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Oops. My apologies. Must be time for bed. I see you added a source. Sorry about that. ChildofMidnight (talk) 06:07, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Ronald Reagan and WP:BURDEN[edit]

Hello, as a Wikipedia editor, it may help if you familiarize yourself with Wikipedia policies and guidelines. Reading WP:BURDEN may help, as it states: "The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material."

Information added that is unchallenged is perfectly acceptable to stay. Information added that is challenged, whether it be over verifiability, undue weight disputes, etc., needs to be either discussed or removed entirely. Therefore, according to WP:BURDEN, you must begin a talk page discussion and establish justifications as to why the information that you added is necessary for the article. I don't dispute the average level of unemployment; my disputes lie elsewhere. --Happyme22 (talk) 21:36, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

WP:BURDEN refers to the burden of providing a citation for material, not things like Undue Weight (which is another topic). Happyme22 didn't read the whole section and it's not a relevant point for his argument.Mattnad (talk) 21:38, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Notice of 3RR complaint[edit]

Your edits to Foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration have violated WP:3RR. You've been unilaterally reverting to the version that you and you alone prefer, so I'm bringing the dispute to the attention of the admins. See Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:Cgersten reported by User:JamesMLane (Result: ) for the report. JamesMLane t c 20:13, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Stop x nuvola with clock.svg
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours to prevent further disruption caused by your engagement in an edit war at Foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration. During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If you believe this block is unjustified, you may contest the block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below.

The complete report of this case is at WP:AN3#User:Cgersten reported by User:JamesMLane (Result: 48h). EdJohnston (talk) 16:37, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

IMO I believe the blocking is unjustified as all I did was post actual and undisputed news items from the New York Times, USA Today and Clinton's Radio Addresses. At no time did I attempt to editorialize the items, and presented both sides of issues where available.
Two posters kept undoing my posts by demanding additional citations and information, which I would then present, and they would demand more, which I would then present. The result, because they apparently didn't like the infomation, they undid the posts.
BTW - the Clinton Radio Addresses about Black Chuch burnings generated considerable news when broadcast to the nation, and the Bush ordering of bombing in Feb. 2001 did also.-
I don't believe individuals should censor history.--cgersten --tuco_bad 17:58, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Gersten, your history shows four edits marked 'Undo' on March 10, i.e. you made four reverts that day. Four reverts in a 24-hour period can lead to a block, per WP:3RR. Do you believe that the 3RR rule should only apply to other people? EdJohnston (talk) 18:06, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree I violated the revert rule and should be blocked by regulation, but if extenuating cuircumstances is a defense, then I believe I deserve a waiver.
1, My posts were deleted for spurious reasons – check out the history.
2. Defense of entrapment -Jojhutton wrote: I have been slowly trying to remove this information for over a month now.

Did you consider the possibility that the others may know Wikipedia policy better than you? In an extremely general article that covers a wide span of time, not every single thing that was ever said in the New York Times may be worth including. Check out the policy on undue weight. EdJohnston (talk) 18:49, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
The article about Bush ordering the raid on Iraq beyond the "no fly" zone in Iraq (first time in over 2 years, and seen as an escalation) occured on only one day, February 16, 2001, not a "wide span of time", and was ordered by Bush while in office less than 30 days. cgersten--tuco_bad 18:57, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
It is not up to you to make a unilateral decision on which quotes from the New York Times belong in the article. You are expected to defer to the consensus of all the editors. If you can't persuade them of the value of the quote, it should be left out. EdJohnston (talk) 19:24, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
That is fair and logical, deferring to a consensus of all the editors - but how does, and when do the consensus of the editors vote?cgersten--tuco_bad 19:59, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
When you observe that your change to the article is reverted by more than one person, that should be an indication that at least two people disagree with you. You are expected to use the Talk page to see if you can persuade them, and not simply continue to revert your own version back into the article. EdJohnston (talk) 20:15, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Okay - then two or more people reverting is the standard for persuading on Talk page. cgersten--tuco_bad 20:27, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
If you are editing very-high-profile political articles, such as Presidency of Bill Clinton, it is wise to ask on the Talk page before making any change that could be controversial. EdJohnston (talk) 20:35, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Don't understand why one should be reticent about posting an unquestioned fact on any article. In fact just the reverse, it should be wise to ask on the Talk page before removing an uncontested fact. cgersten tuco_bad 02:50, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Edit warring at Douglas MacArthur[edit]

High Noon[edit]

Just to expand on the discussion about High Noon, a section on "flaws" is trivia, which is discouraged on Wikipedia. Assigning "flaws" to a movie is also original research, unless the flaw is big enough to be notable in reliable secondary sources.

High Noon and 3RR[edit]

Just so you'll know, you're in violation of the three revert rule on High Noon. I'm not going to revert you, as I've edited that article enough. I do encourage you to self-revert (as encouraged on WP:3RR, and continue the discussion on the article's talk page. As two editors have reverted your addition, there's obviously opposition to the addition. Dayewalker (talk) 16:42, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

You're being discussed by administrators[edit]

See WP:AN3#User:Cgersten reported by User:Daedalus969 (Result: ). It is claimed that you engage in long-term edit warring. (I see four reverts by you since 01:17 on 7 July). You have been restoring a 'Flaws' section which you originally inserted on 12 June. This does appear to be edit warring, and you may be sanctioned by administrators if you will not deal with the situation. You may add your own response to the AN3 report if you wish. EdJohnston (talk) 20:34, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

It is my understanding they I may not revert 3 or more times in a 24-hour period. tuco_bad 21:06, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Three reverts of any kind per article per 24 hour period is a bright line, not an entitlement. Continually reverting an article to your preferred version over the articulated objections of your fellow volunteers may still be edit warring. This is a common mistake, but please read that policy. Currently, the consensus at Talk:High Noon#Flaws indicates that that section should not be included, putting the burden on you to establish how this point is covered and considered important by reliable sources. Would you be willing to refrain from editing High Noon for one week, focusing on the talkpage instead? - 2/0 (cont.) 22:44, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
YES! tuco_bad 23:49, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Hedy Lamarr - ca. 1930.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Hedy Lamarr - ca. 1930.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 16:01, 20 November 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ⋙–Berean–Hunter—► ((⊕)) 16:01, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Hedy Lamarr - ca. 1930.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Hedy Lamarr - ca. 1930.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. ⋙–Berean–Hunter—► ((⊕)) 16:05, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

In our discussion at Talk:Anthony Weiner I mentioned a signature problem. There are five messages from SineBot on your talk page, and at Talk:Anthony Weiner you can see four cases where SineBot has added "Preceding unsigned comment added by Cgersten". You are probably typing "--tuco_bad " then five tildes. However, a signature is required (see WP:SIG) to have a link to the user concerned. You achieve a proper signature by appending four tildes. It is possible to customize a signature (see WP:SIG) but you are supposed to use a name that clearly identifies you. There is no point having user name Cgersten and signing tuco_bad (and doing so is unhelpful for other editors). Johnuniq (talk) 06:37, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Johnuniq - I changed my preferences, so hopefully this problem will be corrected. Thanks for your suggestion.--Cgersten (talk) 12:26, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Still not using a proper signature.[edit]

I'm not clear what the problem is here, or why you apparently refuse to just do it the easy way. When you add your sig by typing it out and then leaving a timestamp behind it, there is no link to your user or user talk pages. Per WP:SIGLINK: "Signatures must include at least one internal link to your user page, user talk page, or contributions page; this allows other editors easy access to your talk page and contributions log. The lack of such a link is widely viewed as obstructive." So it would be really great if you could just sign your posts in the normal manner. This has been mentioned to you many times over the course of the last several years. If there is some aspect of it you still do not understand please indicate what the problem is so it can be clarified for you. Thanks. Beeblebrox (talk) 20:50, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm SummerPhD. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Andrea Mitchell, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. SummerPhD (talk) 18:32, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Re Aretha Franklin[edit]

I have reverted the edit you made to the Aretha Franklin article, stating that she died yesturday. You cited no source, and I can find nothing via Google to confirm it. As you should be aware, per WP:BLP policy, such material needs firm citations - can you provide a link to the source of this information? AndyTheGrump (talk) 06:37, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Jack Kemp[edit]

I am unable to WP:V the paragraph that you added to Jack Kemp and have removed it. Please find something with a link.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 05:41, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
