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 (talk) 20:13, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, 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 (talk) 02:18, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, 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!

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)


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 (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)

iron curtain[edit]

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

Do not revert per BLP[edit]

As per the multiple reliable sources discussing the issue, the allegations made against Zoe Quinn and Nathan Grayson were false. Here's just one for starters — the burden is on you to demonstrate that the mainstream viewpoint of reliable sources is otherwise, given the longstanding nature of the language and its impeccable sourcing. Making unsourced claims that the allegations were not false is a violation of the Biographies of Living Persons policy. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 20:46, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

"General Sanctions" is quite interesting, thanks for letting me know about it. However, my edit is not about Gamergate, my edit is about the claim that something was false without any clear source. As best I can tell from reading the sources is that there is no proof either way regarding the accusations. It is not a violation of WP:BLP: I am not saying the allegations were true, I am not saying the allegations were false, I am simply trying to say there were allegations. I don't see a reason to state they are false, and allegation is not true until proved so. Claiming that the allegations are false seems to me like a violation of WP:Due and WP:NPOV.

If possible let's have further discussion on the article talk page, where it belongs. Greedo8 21:17, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Gamergate general sanctions notice[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please read this notification carefully:
A community discussion has authorised the use of general sanctions for pages related to the Gamergate controversy.
The details of these sanctions are described here.

General sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimise disruption in controversial topic areas.

Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. An editor can only be sanctioned after he or she has been made aware that general sanctions are in effect. This notification is meant to inform you that sanctions are authorised in these topic areas, which you have been editing. It is only effective if it is logged here. Before continuing to edit pages in these topic areas, please familiarise yourself with the general sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

  • Just to be clear, you are now blocked indefinitely for your BLP violations. It will be logged as a Gamergate ban. Risker (talk) 04:02, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
@Risker: I apologize for the delay: I was distracted with real life shortly before the block, and today is my first day back. As such, I was not able to read the now-suppressed discussions, nor participate in them. I am unsure how I violated BLP, although I assume it is related to the previously mentioned discussions. Could you please clarify the specific reason for my block? Thanks! Greedo8 20:05, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello Greedo8; apologies for the delay in responding. Your block is an arbitration enforcement block and it further involves information that has been suppressed from Wikipedia. Because of this, any appeal is pretty much going to have to be made to the Arbitration Committee directly and by email at Risker (talk) 02:03, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
I will look into the ArbCom appeals process and hopefully get this cleared up. Thanks, Risker. Greedo8 00:28, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
