September 2013[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Moreno Valley, California does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Please, this applies to all of the various changes you've made. A short note as to how the figure was obtained/calculated or from what source is important for other editors to understand why the change was made. Thanks.S.

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 100 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:24, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you vandalize Wikipedia again, as you did at Castaic, California, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. You have been inserting unsourced census information into many different articles. Kindly go back and revert all that you have done, or else provide your sources. Thank you.

Please stop adding unsourced content. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. JamesBWatson (talk) 21:22, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for two weeks, for disruptive editing. You have been told that adding unsourced content to articles is unacceptable, yet you have continued to add highly dubious content to articles, without ever giving any indication whatever where the information comes from. In a number of cases I have searched for confirmation that the figures you give do indeed come from the census. Not only have I not found confirmation even in a single case, but in some cases I have found sources which directly contradict what you have claimed. It may be that the sources I have seen have somehow misreported the census figures, and you have a more reliable source, but if so you need to say what that source is, so that your changes are verifiable. It is a fundamental Wikipedia policy that any article content which is challenged, or which is likely to be challenged, must be provided with reliable sources. The length of the block takes into account the fact that there have been several gaps in your editing of a week to two weeks, so that any shorter block might be over before you attempt to edit again, which might mean that you would not even realise you had been blocked, so that you would not get the message. I would be happy for the block length to be significantly reduced if you can indicate that have read this notice, understand why you were blocked, and will try from now on to comply with Wikipedia's policy on the need for reliable sources. If that is so, you may request an unblock by adding the text {{unblock|2=reason=Your reason here ~~~~ }} below this notice (Replacing the words "Your reason here" with your explanation why you think an unblock would be reasonable), but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.
