Please Please Me[edit]

What is "the article" on this (excellent) album? I'll be happy to add it if you like. Let's not edit war here. :) --Kieronoldham (talk) 00:44, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

It's Twist and Shout. In the sentence I added, I linked to it… Esszet (talk) 00:52, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Generally speaking, a link to another Wiki. page does not count as a "reliable source" (at least not in my experience with other editors). Found another reference which hopefully will suffice. The word structure of your edit (which I'll reinsert) may need slightly changing. Regards --Kieronoldham (talk) 01:05, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Dan56. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Revolver (album), 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. Dan56 (talk) 15:33, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Amaury. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Sammy Davis, Jr., but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source 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. Thanks. Amaury (talk) 02:35, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

The article says he converted to Judaism. 02:38, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

July 2013[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you deleted a sentence with source in an article, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj without mentioning an identified reason. It has been reverted. Please stop deleting other people's sourced work which is accounted as vandalism. Thank you. Mongolkhun (talk) 00:38, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:10, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

I have reverted your edits[edit]

I have reverts your edits (1 2) to the Leo Isacson article, changing his death date from the 28th to the 21st, which are in clear conflict with a rather reliable source, the US Congress.

Is there a reason you changed this, or was it vandalism? Am I going to have to scrutinize your other edits for similar, unreasonable edits? Int21h (talk) 01:25, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

If you look at his obituary, listed as ‘The New York Times Company’ under ‘External Links’, you'll see that it was published on 25 September 1996, to the 28th date can't be right. I also have a better source: the Social Security Death Index (see here). Please don't assume that edits are unreasonable just because they're in conflict with a reliable source; it could be wrong.

I've initiated a discussion at Template talk:Current#Reworking this template. —David Levy 17:11, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Esszet,
    Apropos your working draft items for an RfC, could you push it into an independent section, or do you mind mind if I sectioned it off?
    I suspect it may be desirable to discuss the RfC headnote for a period, since there are (so far) two proposed paths, in addition to yet-to-be-found other outcomes for changing {{current}}. Perhaps making those two paths explicit would be useful, as well as calling out for additional suggestions that may be a source of movement on the topic..

I grant that a person is not "a current event", but we should have a template that deals with 'hot' topics. Since there is none, "current" seems like the most appropriate for the moment. If you are trying to introduce a new template, it should be easy to use in all sorts of articles, not just those dealing with an event or death. El Alternativo (talk) 19:32, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
There is a template for people affected by current events: {{Current person}}. And as for whether we should have a template that deals with ‘hot’ topics, see Template talk:current. Esszet (talk) 20:20, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Archived references[edit]

I've reverted your removal of the archived reference URL at Guy Paul Morin. One never knows when an original URL will disappear. Having the archive available is always a good idea and shouldn't be removed. Regards. -- Whpq (talk) 13:24, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:King crimson – islands.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:King crimson – islands.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 13:49, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Someone replaced it with a slightly cropped version, so the version I uploaded can be nominated for deletion straight away. Esszet (talk) 14:35, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
