Deletion of my adding to Naqvis page on 7th September 2013[edit]

Respected ... ``` Dear I have made book reference printed in Urdu language in Lahore (Pakistan) most of the names quoted in naqvis page with heading Naqvis of Darul Ijtihad Jais and Nasirabad Contains Shajras (Pedigree) of these notables before my first adding. As English is not my mother tongue so I study book in Urdu Language, which I can quote you as reference. I request you not to delete my adding and leave them open for challenge which may be considered, if it is denied by any descendant of Naqvi family. However, I am taking liberty of saying that you should care of my personal sentiments, as presently I am unable to give you electronic media reference. If desired by you, I can send you scanned copy of relevant pages in Urdu Language print. You may please contact me via email too for scanned copy. prefix:User talk:Dawnseeker2000/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nannadeem (talkcontribs) 17:14, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Editing of Jason Pearce page.[edit]

I'm not vandalizing the page of Jason Pearce. I am correctly editing it, there was incorrect information on said page. There is no need for warning me as my edits are factual. I am an expert is this field and mean no harm, I am just trying to prevent misinformation — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpblackwell (talkcontribs) 17:40, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Disruptive editing.[edit]

I apologize if my editing has appeared as disruptive, untrustworthy and suspicious. I don't edit articles often would regard myself as rather a novice who is still learning how to do so. I did not know about the edit summary, although now I see it and promise to use it. I will ensure that I add references to my edits where appropriate. I do understand people vandalize Wikipedia but I honestly have no intention of doing so. Sorry for any inconvenience. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jpblackwell (talkcontribs) 17:53, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Raul[edit]

I'm a little concerned about your interactions with RaulRomero. So far as I can see, you left a warning on his page by mistake. When he asked why you had left the warning, you reverted him [1] and then left him an edit summary warning, reverted him when he asked again, and then banned him from your talk page saying that your message should be "fairly clear"?

Here's a fairly clear message: when you leave a warning on someone's talk page by mistake, apologizing for it is a lot more appropriate than banning the victim from your talk page when he protests.—Kww(talk) 17:04, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

I thought my accidental reversion & misplaced warning was clearly rectified by undoing my edit on the article and removing the message from his talk page. Yes, an apology would have been great, but was just moving along at a quick pace and chose not too. Dawnseeker2000 17:11, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
So banning him from your talk page instead of apologizing was faster? Don't place such a premium on speed.—Kww(talk) 17:14, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Yes, of course. Slowing down to place a proper handwritten explanation of how working too fast had caused an accidental reversion and a misplaced warning. Sometimes I do this, and this time I didn't, and will keep this in mind for next time. Thank you, Dawnseeker2000 17:36, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Indus Valley Civilisation[edit]

Dear Dawnseeker, You didnot answered my question. I asked you to see deer image encrypted on throne/seat of Proto Shiva or pashupati seal. same seal is 100% symbol of 16th jain tirthankar shantinath too. Please verify my claims. can you trust your eyes? if yes than please see pashupati seal and tell me if it is a bull or deer? If great authors did mistake in seeing things , doesn't mean that we must continue the same mistake. Can we blind ourself if others cannot see?

I also asked you to look at ancient/modern images from google of jain tirthankar with symbol of deer below his seat, you will see that i wrote truth. Moreover you can clearly see difference between bull and a deer. the pashupati seal/proto shiva in wiki article clearly shows exact figure of deer...so why are you confused? There is more than 1000 pictures of centuries old temples of jain tirthankar shantinath. Please see those images.

One more thing,all jain texts are not available on net like "agams", you can read on wiki that jain texts like "agams" were written 1000-1500 years back.But nobody has put it online.

Source : More than 10,000 ancient places, pictures of centuries old Jain tirthankar Shantinath on google with symbol of deer.Also there is not even a single picture or temple of shiva with deer on his seat. Can you dispute my findings now? Should I stop trusting my eyes and say that pashupati seal/proto shiva has buffalo seal when I can clearly see it is a deer? I gave two sources..did you see them before deleting my script?

I believe new findings & concepts should always be a welcome. So if you have a policy of citing resource than please look at those sources provided . After that start commenting.

warm regardsDr Prashanna Jain Gotani (talk) 20:33, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

It looks like this is the discussion you were having with the other editor on your talk page. I had asked that you not remove talk page content. He was asking about your sources on a separate article. Thanks, Dawnseeker2000 20:37, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Westmount Secondary School, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wei Chen (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:35, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Links Removed from Near Field Communication Page[edit]

I'm new to editing Wikipedia, so appologise if my edit is classed as vandalism? I just linked out to a relevant blog post about the topic of "Smartphone automation and NFC tags" as that's something that my company has recently implemented and so I thought it would be a good example to insert. I read through the whole post and checked the types of links posted out to other websites and thought that mine was no different from the existing links. Can you help me by specifically highlighting why mine was vandalism and the other links on the page are not? 217.34.130.129 (talk) 11:55, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

(I have no idea how to reference the link to you're original note/warning, still learning the ropes of Wikipedia)

Citation Removal[edit]

I had a message from yourself stating that my included citation for the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed-circuit_television page was inappropriate . I definitely think it is a mistake and I can't see how it's inappropriate at all? It was an article discussing the paragraph directly and confirming what the Wikipedia article stated (the citation in question is a few paragraphs down in the blog post, so you might have missed the section that discusses it). If that is an inappropriate entry then i don't really understand what an appropriate one is. Please let me know how i could go about adding the citation in again for you to reconsider. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.232.56.100 (talk) 08:52, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Corruption[edit]

You rm a statement purporting to explain what corruption is. I think I agree with the deletion. You said in the edit summary "don't address the audience." This seems generally like a good idea, like avoiding the use of personal pronouns. Fourth wall?  :) I think "other definitions" are covered in the header to the article

My question: is there a policy about this someplace? Style manual? Sometimes, I have felt obliged to "define out" other definitions by inserting what an article covered. I confess to not feeling "comfortable" about this, but it was that or put up with (later) trying to rm stuff that I thought should be covered in some other (or higher level) article. I wanted my article to be at the "lowest level" and not get sidetracked. Thanks. Student7 (talk) 20:43, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

I may be stretching it a little bit, but yes, I was thinking of WP:TONE when I wrote that. Just thought that specifically stating "this article" feels little bit out of place for an encyclopedia. Dawnseeker2000 02:40, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Enterprise architecture[edit]

Greetings,

Will you please help understand the criteria used to determine "reliable and independent source?"

The quote is from CIO-Index which is a community of 50,000 senior IT executives (http://www.cioindex.com/members) - we are discussing an IT topic and a professional network of the top IT executives is not reliable or independent?

Please explain how these criteria apply to Gartner and "Enterprise Architecture Research Forum?"

Thanks!

Here are Wikipedia guidelines: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Identifying_reliable_sources http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Independent_sources — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.120.26.180 (talk) 02:02, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

The best bet is to always use the best source available (books are a great to use) and what you'd added to several articles didn't look like a source that's easily recognizable (as an authority in this field). All sources should come from a reliable author and publisher. The website provided isn't one that I'd heard of, and many like it probably exist, and that was the the reason for the removal.

Hey man, can you cut the last second from the file bellow File:Last Rites-Loved to Death demo sample.ogg and reduce the sound quality if possible? Thanks a lot.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 14:39, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello again friend. Do you have time go over some audios in the Category:Megadeth audio samples and cut the last second from "Crush 'Em" and "Holy Wars"? They are both over 5 minutes ("Crush 'Em" is 4:57 to be precise) so I think they can be allowed to exist at that length. As for "Symphony of Destruction", I guess the time should be trimmed to 0:25, per WP:SAMPLE. As always, your help is very appreciated.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 22:19, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Follow up to requested page edits[edit]

Hello Dawnseeker2000. I wanted to reach out to you as I notice that you have made several edits to the Naked Juice Wikipedia page over the past several months. I have posted some recommended edits to the talk page but haven't heard any feedback from the editors or Wikipedia community. I want to ensure that I am following the correct process to update the page. Can you please let me know what the appropriate next steps to update the page might be? Would you be willing to make the recommended edits I have to the page? Thanks in advance. Liam Naked Juice (talk) 22:47, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Dawnseek2000 - just wanted to follow up on my above note. Given that I haven't heard back from you I plan on updating the Naked Juice Wikipedia page with my recommended changes at the end of next week (week of December 9th). If you have any concerns with that please let me know. Thank you. 198.231.20.20 (talk) 00:14, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

As I told Jim1138 (in a request for help), IP 103.9.114.58 is acting in good-faith, but really has an English-language issue.

AFD[edit]

Howdy. I didn't see the need for a week-long discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Earthquakes in 1900 when what you were suggesting could be done boldly and in the name of sensible editing. So I moved the content from Major Earthquakes in 1900 to Earthquakes in 1900 as you suggested (replacing the content there) and redirected one to the other. I kept the earthquakes by year template in place. I've also non-admin closed the AFD and redirected the talk page with relevant templates added to the second. Keep up the good work!

Excuse me? How do you know about if this imformation is correct? Dude you obviously aren't from the area and if you look at other articles it has this quake as a 7.7, 7.5 as well. So you tell me how your so sure that this information is correct? Are you from Bakersfield as well? Go on the San Joaquin geological website that talks about it earthquake history there and the southern california earthquake center website. It also does't say it was a 7.3 and it also showed maps of the intensity of the earthquake. Do your research. And get a life.
