July 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Fred Figglehorn. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. 117Avenue (talk) 04:38, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Comedy Central Roast[edit]

Please do not add your own personal analyses, observations or opinions to Wikipedia, as you did with Comedy Central Roast. Wikipedia requires that the material in its articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable (usually secondary) sources explicitly cited in the article text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here. If you ever have any other questions about editing, or need help regarding the site's policies, just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page.

Your Template:Grammy Award for Best Spoken Album changes[edit]

I have reverted them. You gave no discussion, you gave no reason, you did not cite any policy. The existing Templates are modeled on Template:Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the associated decades. Please raise your reasons and discuss the issue and wait until some consensus is achieved. I recommend using Template talk:Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album or perhaps better would be on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Awards and prizes/Grammy Awards task force.
