Categories in article drafts[edit]

Hi George, I came across User:George8211/Open projects/Space 3 while browsing Category:Compositions by Robert Schumann and discovering that your user subpage was in that category. I have commented out all the categories from all the drafts in your userspace, because categories intended for main namespace articles should not be used on userspace pages. Happy editing! Graham87 06:50, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll remember to remove draft articles from categories in future. I was just wondering, why did you review my map of subpages? George8211 (talk | mail) 17:22, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Because I wanted to find out if there were any more examples like the Schumann one. Re: the GNG tag, that's part of the {{Authority control}} template, which you pasted into your userspace draft. Graham87 03:13, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Samara Chopra[edit]

Hi George8211, I have had a bit of a look around for reliable sources on this subject. It seems she is a TV anchor, actress, musician and yoga instructor. There is one bio in the external links section that I will cite later. Nothing to set the world on fire but I think it's worth giving this one time and see what appears in terms of better sources.

Foreign languages in file talk pages[edit]

Hi George, in future if you see pages like this you can tag them with {{db-g6}} to get them deleted under criterion for speedy deletion (CSD G6) G6. I've deleted the first two under that criterion and the other two were tagged under CSD G11 by another user and deleted by an admin. An alternative solution is to replace the page with {{talkheader}} like this, but I personally dislike that template so I wouldn't use that solution. Graham87 00:53, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus[edit]

Can you please keep an eye on Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus? I've reached my revert limit and don't want implicate myself. Many thanks. Jamesx12345 12:21, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Will do. George8211 12:27, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

A note[edit]

This was not a helpful edit: if you look at it you will see you just restored some serious unverified claims and likely BLP violations. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 17:27, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia is losing visitors[edit]

You are spreading wrong information about Hazrat Abu Zar Ghaffari, a reputed and respected companion of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad(Sallallaho Alaihi Wa’alihi Wasallam). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.31.7.32 (talk) 17:19, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Why?[edit]

Why on earth did you revert an edit that itself was reverting vandalism at 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.67.255.230 (talk) 13:40, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks for answer and sorry I forgot to sign my question. 188.67.255.230 (talk) 13:46, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Ruby (disambiguation) may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Usernames for administrator attention[edit]

Hi, just here to pass along some advice when submitting usernames to WP:UAA. Unless a username is obviously offensive (racist, homophobic, etc.), the admins usually won't take action unless the user has made at least one edit. I used to report all kinds of users whose names sounded like WP:CORPNAMEs, some of whom I even found with web sites to confirm the fact. However, the admins won't move to block the user unless they've made edits that are promotional. A couple of alternatives you could try on those zero-edit accounts are {{uw-username}} or {{uw-coi-username}} - that might nip them in the bud. Good luck! --Drm310 (talk) 19:35, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

@Drm310: thanks for the advice! George8211what did I break now? 19:40, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Just wanted to endorse Drm's advice. I declined several of your UAA reports for the very reason that the accounts in question have made no edits. In most cases that's going to be the outcome. If the name is obviously defamatory toward an individual or otherwise blatantly problematic, that's a different story. Thanks for understanding. – Juliancolton | Talk 21:53, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the warm welcome![edit]

Virginia Organizing page[edit]

Hi,

I'm editing the Virginia Organizing page to have it more up-to-date and useful for Wikipedia users. Virginia Organizing has given me permission to use text from their site, so there is no copyright issue. Thanks for what you do--

- Nicholas — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki user 843 (talkcontribs) 20:24, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

@Wiki user 843: sorry! I've just realised that the page isn't actually copyrighted. I'm sorry if I seemed a bit harsh on you, but on Wikipedia we normally write stuff ourself, rather then copying stuff from other websites. However, don't feel put off: I can clearly see that you wanted to expand the article with good faith. George8211what did I break now? 20:26, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
12/11/13: I'm using information from www.virginia-organizing.org because it is not copyrighted and provides the only detailed information concerning the history of the organization. I hope to go through the page in the near future to paraphrase more but wanted to get the details on the page ASAP. I think I've done a decent job so far but need a little more time. -Nicholas — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiki user 843 (talkcontribs) 00:04, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
@Wiki use 843: I'm sorry, but even though it's not copyrighted, VO have given you permission and the current revision of the article is out of date, we don't normally use material copied from other websites. ChrisGualtieri will be able to give you more info. George8211what did I break now? 10:53, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

User talk:205.124.35.206 Warning[edit]

Thank you for trying to warn this user. I put a 4im warning for personal attacks on other editors, but removed it because they were already blocked for it. Not sure if it should stay there for history, but the 'last warning' i put was pointless because they were blocked. Not sure if yours should stay I'll leave it to you. NDKilla 20:56, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

@NDKilla: thanks for that. I'd just been checking through my watchlist and found the attack. I think I'll remove it - no point in duplicate warnings. George8211what did I break now? 21:03, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Primary Sources[edit]

You tagged Academic Hall for relying on primary sources. Neither of the references provided would be considered a primary source in my view. Would you take a second look and see if you agree? Thanks. Grey Wanderer (talk) 03:04, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

@Grey Wanderer: upon a second look, I think you're right. While they are from the University of Missouri, they don't look like they are from the time. George8211what did I break now? 13:22, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Your posting on my page.[edit]

Thanks for that valued input half a year after that conversation ended. Nothing like chiming in after the train left the station 9 months late. You're brilliant. DOCTOREdna. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 10:56, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Respond to why you posted 8 months late. Is it because you crave power? You're a joke. And yes this conversation is being documented for our viewing pleasure. DOCTOREdna — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 05:05, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
@DrEdna: the reason why I placed the warning so late is merely that I forgot to check the timestamps of the comments. I do not "crave power"—Wikipedia is about building an encyclopedia, adminship is for those who do more housekeeping (still a vital part, though). Also, please keep cool while posting comments, assume good faith and do not use improper sarcasm. May I also ask what you mean by "this conversation is being documented for our viewing pleasure"? George8211what did I break now? 13:26, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
You're amazing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 23:49, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Stop talking and just proceed to block me genius. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 02:23, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
@DrEdna: we only block users after they've had a last warning. This way, they have time to stop their actions. George8211 02:27, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Go ahead brilliant boy. You amazing attention to detail like chiming into conversations 9 months late shows me you make great judgement calls. Stop THREATENING and just DO IT!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 12:30, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
@DrEdna: see my reply at your talk page. George8211 14:24, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Who cares?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 14:52, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
It's been great talking with you! :) Feel free to stop by again in 9 months wonder boy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DrEdna (talkcontribs) 15:33, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Appreciation Token of Helixsoft[edit]

Hi, George8211 Thank you for your contribution to the article Zoho Office Suite, and I sincerely thank you that you edit an article that really needed some improvements.

I hope you have a good time on Wikipedia, and may you have a wonderful day.

RE: Fix[edit]

Hi!

You seem to have reverted Wikipedia back to the version before you accidental deleted most of it. So you are doing fine on that point. Don't worry you haven't messed it up!

Can I recommend you go into preferences and under 'Editing' tick the box next to 'Enable section editing via [edit] links'. This will mean you can edit each section (IE the text under each individual heading) separately and not the whole page as a massive block of text.

This will help if you want to try adding the {{clarify}} template again.

If you need any more help just ask, Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 00:17, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
