Adding references can be easy[edit]

Just follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 as shown and fill in the details

Hello! Here's how to add references from reliable sources for the content you add to Wikipedia. This helps maintain the Wikipedia policy of verifiability.

Adding well formatted references is actually quite easy:

  1. While editing any article or a wikipage, on the top of the edit window you will see a toolbar which says "Cite". Click on it.
  2. Then click on "Templates".
  3. Choose the most appropriate template and fill in as many details as you can. This will add a well formatted reference that is helpful in case the web URL (or "website link") becomes inactive in the future.
  4. Click on Preview when you're done filling out the 'Cite (web/news/book/journal)' to make sure that the reference is correct.
  5. Click on Insert to insert the reference into your editing window content.
  6. Click on Show preview to Preview all your editing changes.
  • Before clicking on Save page, check that a References header   ==References==   is near the end of the article.
  • And check that   {{Reflist}}    is directly underneath that header.
7.  Click on Save page. ...and you've just added a complete reference to a Wikipedia article.

You can read more about this on Help:Edit toolbar or see this video File:RefTools.ogv.

@gtw - is there a substing template for this? I think that I know a few editors that could use the same message. anyhow, I use Proveit for all my citing. far faster and easier. -- Aunva6talk - contribs 18:33, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Indians question[edit]

Sure, you can just look it up here: 1920 World Series, 1948 World Series. They have the opponents and the scores of each game. If you're interested in looking up stuff like this, in addition to Wikipedia, has great info. Delaywaves • talk 22:09, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Changing your username[edit]

Hi. You can find instructions and advice for changing your username at Wikipedia:Changing username. It should have all the information you need, but just let me know if you have questions. - Eureka Lott 23:41, 14 August 2014 (UTC)


What are you doing? I removed the tag because it is not longer needed. The Cavs trade is done; read the tag, it says "The subject of this article is in the news regarding a reported trade". It is now official so it is no longer needed. DaHuzyBru (talk) 18:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiggins did not play a regular season game for Cleveland, so it does not go in the infobox. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:12, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
And, another random revert for no good reason. Why are you doing that? DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:17, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Shawn Marion status[edit]

Hello. News sources say that this player has *committed* to sign. He has not actually signed. - Hoops gza (talk) 02:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Your recent editing history at Shawn Marion shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.
