Disambiguation link notification for June 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dave Brat, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Christ Episcopal Church (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Minor cite issue[edit]

Prob. just an oversight but your "Mirkinson|first1=Jack" cite here left off the "http://" prefix of the url; messing up the cite. I don't like it by I always edit "full page" rather than section so I can preview and make sure cites "work". Cheers. Swliv (talk) 22:13, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure, Thanks for the heads up. - Cwobeel (talk)

Joni Ernst RfC[edit]

Do you want to re-write the section header and content for this RfC to make it neutral and accurate? Or would you prefer that I take a shot at it?CFredkin (talk) 04:10, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

@CFredkin: Not sure this is the way to do this. Your deletion of the RFC is really not a nice thing to do. Good night - Cwobeel (talk) 04:42, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Rick Perry[edit]

Since you reverted all of my edits to the Rick Perry article without even attempting to discuss my edits on the talk page. I have reported you to the BLP notice board. You removed notable information that was supported in NPOV manner and with a reliable source, but you just reverted blindly. Please stop editing in that manner.--NK (talk) 20:55, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

I think you need a break. - Cwobeel (talk) 21:32, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

In use[edit]

Did you not see the banner and the edit summary asking for a few minutes to fix some refs?- MrX 15:43, 18 August 2014 (UTC)


@MrX:, nope, sorry. - Cwobeel (talk) 15:45, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

No problem. I'm sure you will be more careful in the future.- MrX 15:49, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, sorry I think I did it again. I am taking a break now.. - Cwobeel (talk) 15:55, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Italics[edit]

"they were the first media outlet to report a photo of Darren Wilson. I think they deserve the italicization."

What does one have to do with the other?

Reuters and the Associated Press have no doubt been the first to report on some news stories. Does that mean they should be italicized? What does italicization have to do with whether an organization first reported on something. Names of specific publications are italicized, but the names of companies or services are not. Do you dispute this? `Nightscream (talk) 01:01, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification. - Cwobeel (talk) 01:03, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm thinking User talk:SCIENCE MEANS REALITY. Pretty much well confirmed with CU block. I'm sure they'll be back, keep an eye out. Dreadstar 03:18, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh my. Thanks for the heads-up.- Cwobeel (talk)

Smoke and mirrors[edit]

I just got a message from an arbitrator: there has been no e-mail from BlueSalix to the arbcom mailinglist, more than 24 hours after the deadline for sending it. So that was just more smoke and mirrors. Hope you feel totally vindicated![1] Mind you, I think it was quite obvious in June that the accusations against you were phoney. Bishonen | talk 12:52, 24 August 2014 (UTC).

I am still puzzled about the whole thing. Why would he do something like this? Is it just that he made a mistake and got into it too deep to be able to apologize and move on? Beats me, really. I guess human nature is complicated. - Cwobeel (talk) 15:11, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Ozone depletion and global warming Environmental policy[edit]

Hallo Cwobeel - if you like my stuff (some do not ;)) I would be grateful if you could have a look on the article i just wrote, as I am not an english native speaker. Best regards Serten (talk) 20:30, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

@Serten: Great article! Corrected a few typos and added a references section, but otherwise it is fine (I am not a scientist so I can't pass judgment on the content). I would suggest you expand the lead so that it is a summary of the article, not just one sentence (see WP:LEAD. - Cwobeel (talk) 20:45, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

EW[edit]

I advise caution. It looks like you may be involved in an edit war with Two kinds of pork at 2014 Ferguson unrest. I'm not posting the in-your-face warning because I know you already understand what edit warring is.- MrX 18:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I am not. I am taking a break from that article for a while. - Cwobeel (talk) 18:12, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  Bbb23 (talk) 21:02, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Request reason:

I don't think I have edit warred, please see my contrib list. In any case, I took a voluntary break from these articles this morning (See [2], and [3]), and I thought that blocks were not punitive.- Cwobeel (talk) 21:07, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Based on your promise not to edit the two articles for one week. Bbb23 (talk) 21:40, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

I looked at your edits in some depth. In the 2014 Ferguson unrest article, you actually breached WP:3RR, but I decided not to use that as a basis for the block. As for your break claim, are you saying that you promise to stay away from both articles for at least a week? Without some sort of condition, a "voluntary break" is meaningless.--Bbb23 (talk) 21:17, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

@Bbb23: yes. I will stay away for a week from both articles. - Cwobeel (talk) 21:18, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I would like to endorse an unblock. Cwobeel has been a great asset to improving these article, but a voluntary break would not be a bad idea.- MrX 21:29, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Bbb23 and MrX. Just to clarify, let me know if contributing to talk is OK, or to stay away from that as well. I'll be happy to stay away from talk, just that I could offer sources, respond to comments, and to help with improvements. - Cwobeel (talk) 21:49, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
The one-week prohibition does not apply to the talk pages. General rules of behavior do, but otherwise you're free to participate in discussions.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:03, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - Cwobeel (talk) 22:10, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

New Page?[edit]

Hello. I believe you stated on my talk page that I could ask questions if I had any? I was considering making an article on 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures 2, the sequel to 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures. However, I am not really sure if it is noteworthy enough to make an article for, as it was not a particularly well-received game. I am also not really sure how to begin creating an article. Icarosaurvus (talk) 21:43, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

@Icarosaurvus: There is a good primer at Wikipedia:Starting an article which may be helpful. - Cwobeel (talk) 21:48, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Rick-Perry.Mug-Shot.81914.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Rick-Perry.Mug-Shot.81914.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a non-free file with a clearly invalid licensing tag; or it otherwise fails some part of the non-free content criteria. If you can find a valid tag that expresses why the file can be used under the fair use guidelines, please replace the current tag with that tag. If no such tag exists, please add the {{Non-free fair use}} tag, along with a brief explanation of why this constitutes fair use of the file. If the file has been deleted, you can re-upload it, but please ensure you place the correct tag on it.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Sorry[edit]

Sorry about the block and me being jerkish. @Bbb23: please consider releasing Cwobeel from his self-imposed editing ban.Two kinds of pork (talk) 06:07, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks TKOP, but I am actually enjoying just watching WP works its magic. I am helping with sources and commenting in talk. (Gesture appreciated, though!) - Cwobeel (talk) 13:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Heh, there's something liberating about not being allowed to edit a controversial article, isn't there? Much less headache, and you just get to step back, watch, and kind of smile at all the drama. Thanks for your comment, Two kinds of pork.--Bbb23 (talk) 22:38, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
@Bbb23: My lesson? WP will do just fine without you :) Liberating indeed. - Cwobeel (talk) 22:50, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
