Vandalism?[edit]

Greedo8, why did you remove my edit on Hillsboro, Oregon page?

The nickname is definitely NOT 'The Hub City', and is 'Hillsburrito'. Do you live there? In fact, if you Google 'Hillsburrito', everything references Hillsboro, Oregon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.144.156.122 (talk) 20:13, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, 198.144.156.122. Sorry if you're upset. Being that Hillsboro, Oregon is today's featured article, there have been many attempts at vandalism. If you have a credible source for the "Hillsburrito" nickname, please cite it when you edit the article so that there will be no confusion. Greedo8 (talk) 20:20, 5 February 2014 (UTC)


Not to mention, you removed my edit on the PaRappa the Rapper wiki. There was a sentence that had incorrectly quoted Dred Foxx as confirming the game being made, even though no such confirmation ever accorded. If you paid attention to the facebook fan page, this rumor was addressed and confirmed that he never claimed it was being made. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.7.69.130 (talk) 02:18, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi there 24.7.69.130, I'm assuming you're referring to this edit [1], in which you removed a large amount of content that was sourced correctly. Any unexplained content removal has a high chance of being viewed as vandalism and reverted. Next time you remove content, please be sure to give a reason in the edit summary. Thanks!

Username[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that your username, "Greedo8", may not meet Wikipedia's username policy because your name is deemed offensive by some editors. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. As an alternative, you may ask for a change of username, or you may simply create a new account for editing. I'm here to ask you to consider changing your user name. "Greedo" is close to "guido". Thank you.Hoops gza (talk) 18:17, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

"Guido is a given name Latinised from the Old High German name Wido." "Guido" does not violate the username policy, and a username that merely has a phonetic similarity does not violate it either. I am sorry if you are offended, but I will not change my username. You may have better luck with your templates on the Greedo talk page. Greedo8 (talk) 18:46, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Are you Danish? Jonas Vinther (talk) 14:00, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

I thought you were done with Wikipedia? Greedo8 21:08, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

A friend of mine convinced me otherwise Jonas Vinther (talk) 14:00, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm glad. No, I'm not Danish. Greedo8 15:42, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Okay. :) Jonas Vinther (talk) 21:50, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Re: Thylacine.[edit]

How can I cite myself? I was adding accurate, pertinent info. into the BENJAMIN and SEARCHES section. Plz. advise. Thank you. Tom mendelson — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.229.110.100 (talk) 06:51, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi there Tom, thanks for your message. There's a few policies on citing sources that you should take a look at: WP:NOR, WP:VER, WP:SOURCE. Usually citing yourself as a source isn't acceptable, it's better to find a reliable 3rd party source containing the information. Let me know if you have any more questions after reading those, and I'll do my best to help. Thanks! Greedo8 20:48, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

IP I blocked[edit]

He violated 3RR, which makes it academic that he backed off after being warned. Daniel Case (talk) 19:09, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Works for me. Thanks! Greedo8 19:15, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

How to cite changes[edit]

Good morning, you recently undid several of my changes to disambiguation pages. Can you show me how to cite these changes so they won't be undone? Thanks (pages: CBI, XPN, TRW, TUC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rchoate (talkcontribs) 14:06, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi there Rchoate, for information on citing sources I recommend you take a look at WP:Cite and Help:Referencing for beginners. The links you were adding didn't appear to be related to the disambiguation pages, adding sources would definitely fix this. You also might want to take a look at WP:Disambiguation. If you still have questions after you've read those, feel free to leave me another message. Thanks! Greedo8 15:43, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Please specify your objection to the source, with regard to the material being cited, on the article talk page. Marxists.org is one of the largest online collections of documentation from the Marxist tradition and I've never heard of them falsifying a document. 66.87.119.109 (talk) 18:35, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
