Categories[edit]

Please do not add religion, ethnic, or descent categories or information to biography articles without first ensuring that 1) the category is supported by reliably sourced article content and 2) the individual identifies as such. Please see WP:BLPCAT and WP:EGRS for additional information. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 18:41, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Seems you've already gotten a note about edits like this. Let me repeat:
  • Use edit summaries to explain your edits.
  • Changes to categories need to reflect the content of the article and be sourced. Not just at editorial whim.
  • If you cannot or will not do this, your disruptive editing can and will likely see you ability to edit temporarily suspended to stop the disruption and give you a chance get up to speed on how things are done on Wikipedia.
Thanks,
- J Greb (talk) 22:22, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
This is not appropriate. Consider this a final warning - adding categories in this manner again will result in you being blocked.

May 2012[edit]

Welcome, and thank you for your attempt to lighten up Wikipedia. However, this is an encyclopedia and the articles are intended to be serious, so please don't make joke edits, as you did to Asian American. Readers looking for accurate information will not find them amusing. If you'd like to experiment with editing, try the sandbox, where you can write practically anything you want. --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 18:05, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 20[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Portrayal of East Asians in Hollywood, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John D'Arcy (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Stereotypes of East Asians in the United States[edit]

The section you added into the article, Perception of Femininity, was reverted because I noticed it was mostly a direct copy from a single and relatively obscure study and the main points are already covered in the article through various parts, not to mention it would be undue weight, the content is already up and a sentence or two will suffice, not paragraphs. I took the main conclusion from the study and added it to the existing Emasculation and asexuality section. Also I undid your bolding of various organizations in the article as that would be superfluous bolding. The OC edit I left in, but it could be argued that it's unnecessary as well as we don't need multiple examples of the same point (i.e. there is already the example of The King of Queens).--Nippler998 (talk) 02:14, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm RightCowLeftCoast. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Demographics of Asian Americans without explaining why.

If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Please discuss the content on the article talk page, removal of verified content should be discussed, and a consensus reached whether the content is outside of the article's scope.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:30, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Recent edits to LGBT rights by country or territory[edit]

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Asian American, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Removed content was reverted per WP:BRD. Continuing to remove content without reaching a consensus could be seen as beginning an edit war. Please discuss the content in the section which already exists on the talk page.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 21:27, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Final warning[edit]

Stop icon

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to Atlantic slave trade, please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. Dougweller (talk) 10:37, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

May I suggest moving the article Portrayal of East Asians in Hollywood to Yellowface in Hollywood?[edit]

The entire article focuses on the racial injustices against East Asians in Hollywood. If you're that keen on keeping the page with only yellowface-related material than I suggest you move the page. It is important to list East Asians characters that aren't subjected to yellowface. So before we start an edit war, what do you think? I would need some help on starting a non-yellowface list. Lhw1 (talk) 08:36, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes it seems like the current page has all of its focus on yellowface and discrimination and everything else about portrayals of East Asians have pretty much fallen by the wayside. We can move what we have now to Yellowface in media or something similar. And then just have yellowface as a sub-section in the current page, which should really be an article about portrayals of East Asians in general.Lhw1 (talk) 09:14, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Feel free to take the initiative. I only really identify and tweak articles for mistakes and inconsistencies, but this is a step in the right direction I think. I'll keep an eye out. Lhw1 (talk) 09:52, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

September 15, 2013[edit]

Hi I've noticed that more than few statements you have added to the Stereotypes of East Asians in the United States are not supported by reliable sources and instead have citations which have nothing to do with the added content. This is a violation of Wikipedia policy and although this is happening on this article frequently, I will assume good faith and not assume that this has occurred on any other articles. Some of it appears to be POV and original research with each edit lacking an edit summary. I've noticed this has been ongoing for some time. In the future, please have a reliable source supporting each statement as it is getting to be a pain for me to review and find out much of it is not supported by sources. I don't think this is done with malice, but just that you aren't as familiar with policy, I don't have time to review every edit so I'll ask another edit or an admin to take a look and clean up if needed. Thanks. Nippler998 (talk) 18:43, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

How about copying and pasting from one Wikipedia article to another?[edit]

Yes, you can copy parts of one Wikipedia article into another, but you must link to the source article in your edit summary. Original content contributed by users can be freely used if the original author is properly attributed. -- Moxy (talk) 05:01, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

If your not willing to follow our basic policies I will have to bring this to admins attention - up to you at this point -- Moxy (talk) 06:14, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Ok then[edit]

After reading the reply on my talk page - I am not sure what to say - I will say you need to work on your social sills here - as profanity filled rants wont get you far. So since its clear your not sure what to do - I will be blut - I dont care what your copy and pasting all over ... If your going to do it try doing in a manner outlined in the policy I listed above then it may not be reverted. Also try to be balanced in your approach to the content size. Sorry to hear your having trouble - if you need help best you try asking at the WP:Teahouse as i am not to inclined to help at this point Moxy (talk) 06:54, 6 November 2013 (UTC)


There is lots to rap your head around here. I see by edits like this made a few days ago you still need some guidance - you could look over Wikipedia:Tutorial - I really do suggest you stop by the Teahouse - the people there can help you with your Dominant minority problem and show you how to copy and paste within the Encyclopedia. -- Moxy (talk) 07:27, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

In 99.9% of cases, you may not copy and paste text from other sources into Wikipedia as you did from here. Doing so is a copyright violation and may constitute plagiarism. Always write the articles in your own words and cite the sources of the article. Copyright violations are often speedily deleted. -- Moxy (talk) 20:16, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries, why not?[edit]

Hello IceBrotherhood
Many editors have come to your talk page to ask you to use edit summaries so I will just ask why you don't use them? When you make a large edit to a page as you did recently to Argentina as seen here it's hard for other editors to know what you are up to if you don't say anything.

I also see that although you have been editing Wikipedia for about a year, you have only made 16 edits to talk pages. These seem to only add up to about 5 or 6 messages to other editors. There are however many messages on your talk page that you don't seem to have replied to.

You will likely find things go easier if you communicate, collaborate, and listen to the advice of more experienced editors. 220 of Borg 12:49, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

How can you get your edits from being reverted all the time? Got to admit its a waste of your time if your edits are reverted just because your not willing to add edit summaries. All you need to do is explain your edits and maybe they wont be reverted all over.

Your WP:UNDUE additions to leads[edit]

Please stop adding those "hungriest nations" rankings to the leads of many articles. They are undue weight for one statistic from one relatively obscure and lesser known source, and at most they can be added to a relevant section in the body. If you continue to re-add them to the lead an administrator will be forced to deal with you accordingly, which of course includes blocks. If you have objections, concerns, or questions you can take it up with an administrator but please follow the general guidelines. Cadiomals (talk) 08:49, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

While I wouldn't rush in and be talking about "blocks" and administrators, I must say that Cadiomals does have a point about the hunger edits, at least in the lead, being undue. kind regards --Merbabu (talk) 10:30, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Magiciandude. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Latin American music, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Latin American music, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. You need to include a source in the lead that supports Asian music being part of Latin American music. Erick (talk) 08:11, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Languages of Africa[edit]

Request for comment[edit]

Request for Comment[edit]

As someone who has edited the article Asian American this year, I am seeking your input on a proposed change to remove a reference to epicanthic eyefolds. This topic has prompted discussion in 2009, 2010 and most recently in 2013.

There's a fine line between being WP:BOLD and subverting WP:CONSENSUS. Given the history of this topic, I'm hoping that a robust discussion, for the record, would improve the article whether this reference stays or goes. Ishu (talk) 13:38, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
