Five Pillars of Wikipedia

Float around for awhile until you find something that tickles your fancy. One easy way to do this is to hit the random page button in the navigation bar to the left. There are also many great committees and groups that focus on particular jobs. My personal favorite stomping grounds are Wikipedia:Translation into English and Wikipedia:Cleanup for sloppy articles. Finally, the Wikimedia Foundation has several other wiki projects that you might enjoy.

There are a few crucial points to keep in mind when editing. Be civil with users, strive to maintain a neutral point of view, verify your information, and show good etiquette like signing your comments with four tildas like this: ~~~~ If you have any more questions, always feel free to ask me anything on my talk page or ask the true experts at Wikipedia:Help desk. Again, welcome! -- Draeco 07:29, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Join WikiProject Koei Warriors Games![edit]

Would you like to join the Koei Warriors Games WikiProject? It is everything Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, and Warriors Orochi! To participate, add your name to the list of participants and apply {{User WPKoeiWarriors}} to your user page.

If you are not sure what a WikiProject is, it is a club of Wikipedians interested in the WikiProject's subject and helping to improve articles of or related to that subject. I saw you greatly contributed to the Samurai Warriors article, so I figured I'd ask if you wanted to participate in Wikipedia:Wikiproject/Koei Warriors Games. You do not have to, and neither are you obliged; I am just asking. -BlueCaper (talk) 00:10, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Your approach to contributing[edit]

Looking at your edit history, you seem to spend an awful lot of time removing stuff, and almost zero time adding content. I find that... unfortunate. Not to insult either, but it does seem to be an attitude that gets Wikipedia a fair amount of grief when Wikipedia in general is discussed on other sites. Positive public perception is good, right? You particularly seem to have something against xkcd. I can see the argument of xkcd strips being below a relevancy threshold, but at the same time, it seems like overkill to be pursuing these references. I personally don't bother with removing stuff. I feel it's at least as useful to simply add the occasional referenced details, or fix links. (And in specific reference to an xkcd link of mine that you removed, you did a sloppy job by removing the References section too.) Sorry for preaching. ~Gertlex (talk) 05:37, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia can be improved by removing content added by idiots like you. Fancy that. 90.219.166.246 (talk) 19:08, 22 February 2010 (UTC)


Dear god but this page is full of faggotry coming from every side. Honestly, on the one hand, he have a contributor who acts and speaks like he's a member of the fucking Cosa Nostra, e.g "I find that... unfortunate." I was expecting to see that followed up with something about protection money and made men. Now, on the other hand, we have a random idiot coming in and doing the wikipedia equivalent of thread necromancy, and his(Females shouldn't be insulted by this, as he's a fucking idiot.) head is so vacuous and empty that he can't even bother to state how wikipedia will be improved or even why Signor Mafioso is and idiot(He is, but that's beside the point.)

I was the one who finally killed the worthless In Popular Culture section of the Jimmy Carter Swimming Rabbit Incident page in Dec 2009, and I wanted to thank you for helping to keep that page XKCD-free. You made that edit a year ago, which I only noticed now because I forgot to check if my edit had stood, but I am glad there are people staying vigilant for XKCD vandalism. 108.28.44.31 (talk) 16:10, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm just wondering why you would categorize XKCD as vandalism. In many cases, Randall Munroe's cultural references bring light upon subjects that readers may not have otherwise known. It's prejudicial to remove something simply because it comes from XKCD; why don't you try -- I dunno -- looking at the context in which the reference was included? Just a thought. (p.s. I have a rather low opinion of people who judge and criticize others, but yet will only sign with an IP number, and not a username.) --Magmagirl (talk) 17:54, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

RM notification[edit]

Since you have participated in at least one Requested Move or Move Review discussion, either as participant or closer, regarding the title of the article currently at Sarah Jane Brown, you are being notified that there is another discussion about that going on now, at Talk:Sarah Jane Brown#Requested move #10. We hope we can finally achieve consensus among all participating about which title best meets policy and guidelines, and is not too objectionable. --В²C 17:13, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation contest.[edit]

Hey, look - you had better fix some more links for the contest, because I have already won a t-shirt for coming in the top three, and I would feel awkward winning another one so soon. Try to top a thousand. If it helps, here's the list of pages with the most bonus links. Cheers! bd2412 T 23:29, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Can I request that, if you want to take issue with an editor's behaviour that, as well as pinging other editors, that you also either directly contact or ping the editor concerned. Notification had to be provided by another editor. GregKaye 09:25, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm assuming this is in reference to Wikipedia talk:Requested moves#Request to revert a whole bunch of undiscussed moves? Firstly, I must take objection to the statement that I "ping[ed] other editors". I made three pings in that conversation, two of which were to you, and the third was in the most recent of the five comments I made, well after you joined the conversation. Secondly, I was not attempting to start a discussion of anyone's behaviour, I was attempting to place a request to revert undiscussed moves. The main RM page has a space, under the subheading "Requesting technical moves" for "Requests to revert undiscussed moves". Had there only been a few moves in question, I would have filled out the appropriate template and listed them there, and an admin would have moved them, or not moved them and converted them to RM discussions. Either way would not involve pinging anyone or a discussion of anyone's behavior. I left a note on the talk page instead because filling out the same template one at a time for hundreds of articles would have been an incredibly tedious undertaking, and I was hoping that admins had access to an automated process that could do the reverts much more easily if they agreed my request had merit. Egsan Bacon (talk) 16:32, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
I note, even following a request regarding pinging, that you don't ping with your reply. [Wikipedia_talk:Requested_moves#Request_to_revert_a_whole_bunch_of_undiscussed_moves The thread] that you raised is exactly as I described and it was only after I had been made aware of the content that you started pinging me. Your selective pings have appeared in threads found here. here and here.. This after you made no contact with me when raising complaint.

I repeat:

"Can I request that, if you want to take issue with an editor's behaviour that, as well as pinging other editors, that you also either directly contact or ping the editor concerned." Is this unfair?
In my recent extension of the first thread I have raised other issues with, what I contested to be, your misrepresentations here, none of which you have replied to.
You have fairly called me to account in regard to some of my earlier behaviours and your corrections have been appreciated. You present "undiscussed moves" when almost all the moves made had made reference to that first supportive discussion (as the immediately following editor also pointed out), you say that I am starting a fourth discussion when what I was doing was continuing the first of the three discussions that I had started, when you present "that this is simply a religious issue and nothing more" when there are clearly a very wide range of cultural connections to the divinities mentioned. Your arguments include, relating to figures in religion "This isn't a religious issue". Do you say that it purely mythological? (I would like to propose a great many tons of masonry and countless artefacts as evidence to say that it is not). Is this really what you are saying? If so then please substantiate. I have previously left you the above. A motivation behind the issues raised here is that I would genuinely like you to come sunny side up. GregKaye 13:57, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
