Speedy deletion declined: Vengeance (2013 film)[edit]

Hello Eventhorizon51, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Vengeance (2013 film), a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Is a plausible, useful redirect or is not a redirect at all. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Cindy(talk) 01:41, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David (name), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Anna David (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.

Move to Rosanna Pansino[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give User:Eventhorizon51/sandbox a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Rosanna Pansino. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Len Ford[edit]

May I ask why you reverted my edits on Len Ford? Esszet (talk) 00:59, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

I apologize. From what I saw in the comparison between revisions of your edit, I thought you removed a quote from the article. I just took a closer look and it looks like your edits were in fact constructive. I'll undo my revision to the page. Eventhorizon51 (talk) 01:50, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Notifying authors[edit]

Hi. Thanks for patrolling new programs, a tedious and depressing but essential task. When you PROD an article such as Andover HSx, please notify the author by copying to their talk page the notice that is generated at the bottom of the PROD template when it expands on the article and, if the author is new with a blank talk page, make it less WP:BITEy by preceding it with {{welcome}} or another welcome message, to give them some links to advice on how to do better next time. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 16:03, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Tippets+random+no.[edit]

Hello Eventhorizon51, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Tippets+random+no., a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not nonsense - there is meaningful content. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. Jackmcbarn (talk) 04:18, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Your sig[edit]

Your signature at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/也是醉了 seems to be causing problems in the edit window by taking up far too many lines. It should take no more than two or three, per WP:SIGLEN, and should not be more than 255 char. It's not obvious why it's doing so: your signature looks very straightforward with just custom colours and could probably done with much simpler HTML.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 00:34, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I have no idea why it's doing this. All I typed in for my signature is [[User:Eventhorizon51|'''{{fontcolor||yellow|Event}}{{fontcolor|#00FFFF|black|horizon51}}''']] <sup>([[User talk:Eventhorizon51|talk]])</sup>. Is it supposed to automatically change into whatever it is in the edit window? Eventhorizon51 (talk) 00:45, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Also, it doesn't seem like my sig is doing the same thing on this page (or any other talk page I've edited). Eventhorizon51 (talk) 00:47, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
You should never include templates in your signature. There's not one reason but a whole list: WP:SIG#NT. If you are trying to achieve some formatting then do it using raw CSS/HTML; look at the output for where your sig worked as expected and copy and paste that. If it's too long, i.e. if it exceeds the 255 char limit, you'll have to find some way to shorten it even if that means losing some of the formatting. But your sig doesn't look as if it's doing anything too fancy that would need more than 255 chars.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 03:33, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

I fixed it at the AfD by substing the parser functions. If you replace a template or call, {{...}} with the same but prefixed by 'subst:', i.e. {{subst:...}}, the template is replaced by its output as you hit save. WP:SIG#NT strongly discourages but does not disallow substing, for the reasons given. In this case I think using HTML/CSS is far better as then you can be sure what you'll get, and again I don't think you are doing anything that can't be done that way.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 03:42, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll keep this in mind. Eventhorizon51 (talk) 04:09, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
I fixed a couple more instances of it too: [1], [2]. Whatever the cause it's possibly something you changed around that time; earlier pages seem not to have the problem.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 04:26, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
