Today I made my very first edits to the page for Marquese Scott, but they were reverted by XLinkBot. If I understand correctly, they were reverted perhaps because they link to copyrighted material? It was certainly not intended to be spam, sorry I'm new at this. Can you give advice on what to do in this situation? Perhaps I should include the new content I added (a short list of the person's most viewed videos) without including external links? I also wrote a fair amount of text and added some new sections to the page, and I'd like for these edits to be included in the page. I can put these back in, but I'm worried I'll be breaking rules again. In general, should I avoid adding links to YouTube? (Much of the information about this person comes from interviews found on YouTube, so as far as I can tell it's accurate and verifiable, but I'm just not sure how to cite these videos.) Thanks in advance for your help! --GuineaPigC77 (talk) 18:43, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Resolved via IRC. Avoid linking to the subject's own videos; instead provide reliable third-party sources that discuss him. Huon (talk) 19:14, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Marquese Scott has been reverted.
Your edit here to Marquese Scott was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXO-jKksQkM&list=TL2fEBlrxoKnw1Ck6AHddTd4g9BCBUabw0, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_0dLDsc-Vw&list=TL0gLY-zYwn94sWq3n_Y-xTBeyJ_47K_xd, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZQ_RDb0lcE&list=TLAYDda7OPomNl8f3vM_5CyhXU6-VPxaz6, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhEAs2pfL5c&list=TLUnESkXrsOp-Ac6t5pqeq5aB2Gl54tQrW, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pyCI_intrQ&list=TL7105uy3dBX2TbVRnMrsEfMNWQ5W70oee) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 18:15, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
