A reference problem[edit]

Hi! Some users have been working hard on Category:Pages with broken reference names.

Here you added a new reference <ref name="BCC archives"/> <ref name="UB archives"/> but didn't define it. This has been showing as an error at the bottom of the article. "Cite error: The named reference REFNAME was invoked but never defined (see the help page)." Can you take a look and work out what you were trying to do?

Reference problem again[edit]

Hi! Some users have been working hard on Category:Pages with broken reference names.

Here you added a new reference <ref name="BCC archives"/> <ref name="UB archives"/> but didn't define it. This has been showing as an error at the bottom of the article. "Cite error: The named reference REFNAME was invoked but never defined (see the help page)." Can you take a look and work out what you were trying to do? Thanks --Frze > talk 12:45, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Baltimore News-American[edit]

Hi Duane, welcome to Wikipedia and thanks for your edits! The trouble is you are not citing any references or sources, or giving reasons for any of your edits. Unsourced and unexplained edits tend to get reverted, because there is no way or verifying whether or not any of it is true. Do read these pages:

Baltimore City College[edit]

Hi Duane, I read your recent contributions to the Baltimore City College and while I find the more detailed history of some of the early buildings interesting, the descriptions tend to diverge from the actual purpose of the article. Several editors, including myself, several years ago worked to bring the article to featured article status. One of the criticisms we had to overcome was that the article was too long. Your edits increased the length of the Baltimore City College article from roughly 70,000 bytes to 85,000 bytes without making references to Baltimore City College itself. I hope this note is helpful in provdiing some insight as to why the edits were reverted.«Marylandstater» «reply» 17:42, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Welcome!

Disambiguation link notification for January 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Education in the United States; and many others, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. You seem to be operating to a different drummer, which is fine, but before additional edits, you really need to fix the wide-spread errors you have introduced into numerous articles. Slowdown and read some of the guides that have been provided to you. Sorry to sound harsh, but if you continue to break article styles, adding capitalization and other grammatical errors into multiple articles, your editing privileges will be suspended or blocked. If you need guidance, I can help guide you. Thanks. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 09:16, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Daniel Ullman. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Administrators can block users from editing if they repeatedly vandalize. Thank you. Disruptive: Introduction of non-sourced minutiae and opinion; weasel wording; grammatical errors and punctuation; soo; over-linking; link-breaking. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 19:14, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Extraneous information and formatting[edit]

Thank you for your edits to Education in the United States.

The text of an article should really be directly relevant to that particular topic. I have removed some extraneous information you added; for example, we don't need to know detailed information about a promoter of an education amendment (Blaine) -- that's what links are for. Anyone who is interested can just click to find out more.

Also, capitalization is reserved for proper nouns. The states of the United States, a federal tax is imposed by the Federal Government.

I hope this is helpful! HGilbert (talk) 21:34, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

I notice that your latest edit (to John Boynton Philip Clayton Hill) has a problematic Wikilink. Perhaps you can fix this, and -- as many of your edits have had problems with Wikiformatting -- I strongly recommend using the Show Preview button before saving a page; you will then be able to review your work first.

Warning[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to use disruptive, inappropriate or hard-to-read formatting, as you did at Thomas Sumter, you may be blocked from editing. There is a Wikipedia Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 17:58, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Robert Oliver, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Although I believe you are trying to do good, your edits are becoming disruptive; too numerous to fix; and therefore must cease; you are breaking WMoS; you are breaking templates; you are breaking info-boxes and REFUSING to fix your own messes or discuss. This is, unfortunately, going to have to go to administrative intervention, as you are harming the project. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 05:06, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Somerset County[edit]

Thanks for your edits. Please stop referring to Somerset in England as "Somerset County" it is a phrase that is never used. It relates to a ceremonial county but Bathampton Down is actually in Bath and North East Somerset.— Rod talk 13:57, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Quasi-War. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. You must stop adding so much detail to articles. Others have warned you against this recently. If you don't stop you will be blocked. Binksternet (talk) 04:42, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Final Warning[edit]

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Montgomery C. Meigs, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Your continued editing of multiple articles, leaving scores of broken templates and brackets; and additions of off-topic trivia, life-span dates, and over-linking in your wake amounts at this point to vandalism. Your refusal to discuss any of this with me (or any of the several other editors who have been correcting your damage) is further indication of a basic non-caring attitude towards the articles you, on the surface, seem want to help, but which, in reality, you are damaging. You really, really need to educate yourself about what proper encyclopedic content is. The first step to that is discussing this issue with those that can help you Further refusal to do so WILL RESULT IN AN ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW. Sorry it has come to this. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 22:38, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

I've come here as a result of a report at the Administrators' noticeboard for reporting vandalism. Unlike GenQuest, I don't see your edits as vandalism per se, and so I'm not going to block your account at this time. However, your editing, whilst presumably well-intentioned, is causing a lot of work for other Wikipedia users, and is becoming disruptive. Could I therefore please ask that you refrain from adding technical markup elements (such as wikilinks to articles for the time being, and that you discuss any potentially controversial changes in wording on article talkpages before implementing them. If your current pattern of editing persists, you will be blocked from editing in order to protect the encyclopedia. Yunshui  12:54, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

You may not wish to communicate with other editors, but I'm afraid that collaborative editing is a core element of Wikipedia - if you aren't willing to discuss your edits or refrain from introducing inappropriate markup, then your presence here is more disruptive than productive. As a result, I have blocked your account again, for a week this time: if, after the expiry of this block you continue to edit in the same manner you will be blocked for increasing periods of time, culminating in an indefinite block. Please - communicate. It's the only way that you're going to be able to continue editing here. Yunshui  10:38, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
