August 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 British Royal Family. 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.

Diana, Princess of Wales[edit]

...was styled, after her divorce, like a divorced peeress – [1]DBD 14:12, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

"The" before Prince or Princess[edit]

Hi, I saw your edit at Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and I wondered was it correct. I think Catherine would only be "The Princess William" if her husband were "The Prince William" (leaving aside his Duke of Cambridge title). And I think he'll only become "The Prince William" when Charles becomes King. I've left a query at the article's talk page. Thanks. Girlwithgreeneyes (talk) 23:28, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Template:Angels in Abrahamic Religions[edit]

So, why did you remove the italics again? Or add them, in the case of Michael and Gabriel? Are you suggesting that they are not "recognized by all denominations."? StAnselm (talk) 10:26, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

EIIR infobox[edit]

Please stop reverting at Elizabeth II. There was a long-standing consensus version for that infobox section that you overrode a month ago without a new consensus and are trying to impose again over a subsequent change. I am almost finished putting together something at Talk:Elizabeth II. You should undo your last revert; but, at least please discuss the change you want to make at the talk page. --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 16:58, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Your edit to the infobox was correct, Keivan. Except that you should've placed it below the image. GoodDay (talk) 23:59, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

OK! I think that's rightKeivan.fTalk 09:56, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

I believe you've been on Wikipedia long enough to know that, when your edit is quickly reverted, you should be seeking a consensus for your change at the article's associated talk page; you saw that only just a few days ago when you tried to alter the infobox at Elizabeth II. The infobox you are now trying to replace at List of titles and honours of Charles, Prince of Wales has been in place since November of 2008; consensus by silence is obviously well established. Please take the matter to the talk page, thanks. --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 16:12, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Corbin Bleu[edit]

I can't help but notice your sudden interest in Corbin Bleu, which seems completely different from your normal field of interest. We have a problem with a banned Farsi-speaking editor that occasionally contacts people and attempts to get them to edit Corbin Bleu related articles on his behalf. He is a banned editor, and no editor should edit on his behalf. Has he contacted you?—Kww(talk) 12:34, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

I don't know his real life identity. We primarily deal with him under his Chace Watson account, but he has falsely claimed to be dozens of people, include me. What prompted your sudden interest in Corbin Bleu?—Kww(talk) 17:11, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Damon Salvatore Page[edit]

I dont know what gave the impression but I haven't made the current Damon Salvatore page. Yes I made it a long time ago but that was deleted by a moderator so i never tried to get into it again. Nasirakd (talk) 15:05, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Why did you revert my edits? It is not necessary to specify that their occupation is the Prince or Princess of Japan. This is not cited on other royal articles of other nations. Furthermore, both the infobox and article already make the statement perfectly clear. These people do not have occupations, they are born into royalty. Dasani 03:57, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Princess Takamado[edit]

Hello! A widow is only called dowager if the new holder of the title is married. For example, if the Duke of X dies and his successor is unmarried or he has no successor at all, then his wife remains Duchess of X. Anyway, having a succession box makes no sense if there is no succession, don't you think? If a person is the first and so far only holder of the title, there is no need for a succession box. Cheers, Surtsicna (talk) 10:26, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi again! When the subject of the article is a consort, the parameters 'predecessor' and 'successor' are not used. Infoboxes are supposed to contain essential information only and when it comes to consorts, that's hardly essential. I think there is a manual of some sorts somewhere. I'll look it up if you wish. Surtsicna (talk) 12:01, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

I think other articles are fine. If you encounter one that's not, feel free to fix it :) Surtsicna (talk) 12:23, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Shigeko Higashikuni. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. --DAJF (talk) 00:39, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

That wasn't an unsourced edit. I just added her Royal name in Japanese and of course her full name. Keivan.fTalk 05:11, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
OK, but you'll need to include a source for any claimed religious affiliation. --DAJF (talk) 05:30, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
Yes, of course but for example about her title or royal name there are enough sources in the article. Keivan.fTalk 05:34, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Lady Ogilvy[edit]

Hi, re this undo, this is a title assigned to a royal, this is Her Higness' official title making it royal. See her official title on the title and styles section of her article. I didn't want to undo your undo as I thought it would be better to come to a mutual agreement! Cheers--Chip123456 (talk) 15:23, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

Ancestry charts[edit]

Hello! The ancestry of the Empress of Japan is nothing but trivia. You will find no reliable source mentioning her mother's father's mother or any great-grandparent whatsoever. The Queen of Spain's ancestry is notable, however, as she was not a commoner before marriage but a princess of Greece and princess of Denmark. There are no ancestry sections in articles about other former-commoner-consorts (and if there are, there shouldn't be); see, for example, the articles about the Queen of Sweden and the Queen of Norway. Surtsicna (talk) 11:50, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Of course, this is true for Japanese princesses by marriage as well. Surtsicna (talk) 12:32, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

I really don't understand you. About Michiko you were right, but about Masako you are wrong. Firstly, her ancestry isn't trivial secondly Masako is a daughter of a famous diplomat and she comes from a notable family. Keivan.fTalk 12:45, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
The Crown Princess's father is notable, of course, and he is mentioned in the article. His father's mother, however, is not (just an example). There is no reason to have the ahnentafel just to show her relationship to her father, who is already mentioned several times in the article. Besides, such unsourced and contentious information must not be inserted into the article about a living person per WP:BLP. Please don't revert anymore; if you believe the ancestry chart is useful for some reason, find reliable sources and we will discuss it. Surtsicna (talk) 12:49, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
As for the ancestries, I hope you understand my point. If their ancestries were significant in any aspect, I wouldn't oppose including the ahnentafels. However, they did not become what they are due to their ancestries; the fact that the Crown Princess's mother's father's mother was a woman named Yoneko is not relevant to any aspect of her life. Wikipedia is not a geneaological database. Surtsicna (talk) 13:11, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

I must tell you I was under impression that you were French. I do not know why. I had no idea Keivan was a Muslim name. What language does it come from? Surtsicna (talk) 12:56, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

I was asking because I am Muslim too and I had never heard of it before. I like it nevertheless :) Surtsicna (talk) 13:06, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Masako Sen[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Masako Sen has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Photo of Duke & Duchess of Cambridge[edit]

Hi Keivan,

You took a good photo of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but unfortunately it was added to an inappropriate part of the article - ideally we should have had a picture of the chateau at that place as that would link into the section.

Good luck with your photography - why don't you look at articles connected with the area where you live - some are probably lacking good photographs - in that way you can make a real contribution to Wikipeadia.

Date format[edit]

Hi! I saw this edit of yours. I restored the original date format. See WP:DATE. Please do not change the date format. If you have changed the format of other articles without checking the original format, please check it and undo your changes if necessary. Please remember, most of the Japan-related articles use the mdy format. Thank you. Oda Mari (talk) 06:46, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Well! I don't understand why the Japan-related articles use the mdy format but I think you are right.Keivan.fTalk 15:28, 13 January 2013 (UTC)


Until Princess Yoko dies, pictures of her are replaceable. There are probably thousands of private snapshots. You could fly to Japan and take one yourself if you so chose. NFCC#1 doesn't mean that you have a replacement handy, it means that one could be made.—Kww(talk) 14:57, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Firuze / Hümeyra[edit]

Selam Keivan,

Only in the last episode she appeared, it was mentioned that her real name is "Hümeyra". During all the episodes she was called Firuze. If you would ask people who follow the series, more than 90% will not remember the real name. Several Women in the Harem changed their name, Aleksandra/Hürrem being the most prominent one. So i don't think it is necessary to mention this name here. Arved (talk) 10:18, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

I also checked Turkish Wikipedia and I saw that that name was written in her roles. But if it isn't really necessary, you can remove that name. Keivan.fTalk 08:19, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Unsourced personal info[edit]

Hi Keivan.f, note that I partially reverted your edits at Nur Fettahoğlu as some of the personal info (including spouse names, marriage dates and parent names) you added was not supported by sourced article content. In addition to the BLP issues, the instructions at Template:Infobox person note that height should only be included if the individual is noted for their height or if it is particularly relevant (e.g. for sports figures or models). The names of family members are generally only included if they are independently notable (per WP:BLPNAME). --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 19:35, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

It's not better for me to "to search about her in internet", it's better (and policy) for you to include your sources when you add the material. If the Facebook page confirms the details of her second marriage, then include the source when adding the material. You also added the name and marriage dates of her first marriage, this requires a source as well. The Turkish wikipedia entry is irrelevant as wikis are not reliable sources, and the information there is equally unsourced. The onus is on the individual adding or restoring content to verify the content, so please ensure you include a citation for each of the claims being made. As the infobox is supposed to be a summary of article content, it would be beneficial if the material is added as prose to the article (with the relevant citation), then added to the infobox if relevant. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 22:14, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Hello, and thank you for all the good work you are doing!

When making drastic changes however, such as removing relevant coats of arms that have been there for years from the templates of royal families, or such as applying your own name formats to them, you should be more careful to have consensus with you. That is normally done by starting a discussion to which any and all interested editors may contrubute, best done on an article's talk page.

On the subject of royalty, just as an example, it is not WP policy that a few select royalty editors, with whom you might communicate exclusively, decide any- and everything that goes into or out of those articles. All editors have a right to be heard and to contribute as well as they can, in the same way that you or I do. If you continue to do things your own way, and the results are drastic changes to Wikipedia's contents, you'll find yourself at odds with other editors who may feel your good faith actions are offensive and destructive, not to say vandalism (yet). That will then lead to disagreeble situations that nobody will enjoy.

WP:Bold is not meant to encourage editors to get themselves in trouble by habitually appearing headstrong and inconsiderate.

Keep up the good work, but please be a bit more considerate and careful! Discuss openly before you remodel extensively! Sincerely, --SergeWoodzing (talk) 16:54, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

"Headstrong and inconsiderate"? "Offensive and destructive"? "Vandalism"? Whooaaah. Did two edits, easily undone with a single revert, really warrant such strong words? And "drastic changes"! Really? A drastic change would be translating the template into Thai, not this. Nobody appreciates condescending lectures on her or his talk page, especially not over something blown out of proportion. I believe you've been told that when you left a similar message on another user's talk page. Surtsicna (talk) 18:11, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
You have either misread what I wrote or else you are just trying to pick another fight with me again. There is no personal attack here. I'm trying to tell this young and enthusiastic user to be more careful lest he be misunderstood as a problem user, and to use the talk pages of involved articles to avoid such problems, which I believe you have been told many times. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 18:48, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Dear SergeWoodzing, I understood what you said, but what about you? Didn't you just change the names of Swedish royals to the format you like and revert my edits? I didn't find any discussion about this. Also what was the purpose of those images that were in royal families' templates? Of course if anyone feels my edits are offensive and destructive, s/he can discuss it with me. And about the infobox of Carl Gustaf, I should say that I changed the name formats, for example I changed Prince Carl Philip to Prince Carl Philip, Duke of X, because the children of sovereigns and consorts are mentioned by their titles in their parents' infoboxes. Take a look at George VI's infobox. Her second daughter's name is written like this: Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon not just Princess Margaret. And also we are friends here, and there's no personal attacking as you said. Keivan.fTalk 19:42, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I have been told that. By you. Who else on Wikipedia enjoys lecturing others more than writing articles? Oh, good thing you said there was no personal attack here, because the words "headstrong and inconsiderate" and "offensive and destructive" were quite troubling. Allow me to remind you of that the next time you try to lecture me about my tone or something similarly trivial. Wikipedia needs "young and enthusiastic" users to do exactly what Keivan.f is doing - contribute, do whatever they believe will improve an article, and they do not need to seek anyone's permission or blessing beforehand. Surtsicna (talk) 21:27, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Wow, thanks. ;) Keivan.fTalk 21:34, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

"Who else on Wikipedia enjoys lecturing others more than writing articles?" ~ gross exaggerations, overly familiar insults and personal attacks like that are what you get if/when you ever disagree with some editors. Best of luck to you, Keivan.f, I mean that. I've seen how you in fact do seem to feel you need to "seek ... permission or blessing beforehand", and that's very good, but all I'm saying is: do it on the talk pages, not in messages to other users. Just my advice, take it or leave it. And you'll also see that I in fact do use the talk pages of articles as a basic rule whenever any reverting is done. That's what we're supposed to do, no matter what you see some other editors doing. Try to forget all the nasty animosity that was created here. That was really not my intention. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 02:28, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

He/She should be asked why he is reverting so many approved articles and erasing info without explanation. (talk) 00:53, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

@ Adding unnecessary photos that have no purpose is not a precious information. Stop adding pictures to the articles of Ottoman consorts with explanation like this: Murad III, son of Nurbanu Sultan. If someone really wants to see his photo, s/he can visit his article's page. Keivan.fTalk 06:28, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
And also I find no rule in Wikipedia that we should always explain the other users why we edit an article. Here's not a primary school. We don't need the others permissions on talk pages before a little edit to an article. Also reverting an IP user's vandalism doesn't need explanation. Keivan.fTalk 07:21, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

The sources say that she was born Orpah, but because it was difficult for her family to pronounce this name they changed it to Oprah after a while. Keivan.fTalk 22:43, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia is very good tool!I enjoyed it soon much and its writers r also very intelligent but I want Wikipedia to show pictures also by the way it is very informative and detailed and it tells about every point.By using it I got so many information. Please show pics of everyone's. I like Wikipedia! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:30, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

It's good that you have become interested in Wikipedia and I hope you like the place. Actually, we can't add images to every article in Wikipedia because of copyright licenses that they have.

Uthman ibn Affan[edit]

I have commented on the talk of this article about changing the title of this Article. I think you belong to Shia form of Islam

@Owais khursheed: Yes, I belong to Shia form of Islam but I have read about Sunni caliphs too and I think it's not really good to have the three others' articles under the titles Abu Bakr, Umar, Ali and then this one as Uthman ibn Affan. You said that Uthman is known under the name "Uthman ibn Affan" but I think Umar is also known as Umar ibn al-Khattab and Ali as Ali ibn Abi-Talib. So I think it's better to move Uthman ibn Affan to Uthman. Keivan.fTalk 15:32, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

yeah they should have these names. you should instead request an admin to change their titles to their proper name. But you are going in the other way. Abu Bakr is popular by this name. you should request Admin for changing Ali to Ali bin abi Talib and like wise for Umer (may allah be pleased with them). Owais khursheed (talk) 15:40, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

But it seems that the other users won't agree with changing the name of these articles (Umar and Ali), so it's better to move Uthman. As I see it seems to be a normal move because you and maybe some other users won't agree with changing the name of Uthman's article. Keivan.fTalk 15:48, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Prince Chichibu[edit]

Prince Chichibu was passed over in the line of succession in October 1940 in favour of his younger brother Prince Takamatsu. I have found several references relating to this matter (in the article Line of succession to the Japanese throne, see the section "Succession debates and conteoversies, reference #12). Please do not make any changes to the article without supporting references. Thank you. Aumnamahashiva (talk) 15:50, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Japanese royalty[edit]

The recent revisions on pages on japanese princes and princesses nearly gave me a fit. The user's rationale seems to be based on information given on the official website of the Imperial Household Agency which doesn't hold up since that information hasn't been updated properly in ages. Besides, official pages for British Royals refer to them by their ducal titles where possible, but Wikipedia pages for all those people don't omit their names -.- . What's your stance on the situation, since you were active on those pages before ? I'm in favour of reinstating their name + title because it's less confusing. --Killuminator (talk) 23:40, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I would also argue Avicenna and Averroes need a move but then again both their latin and real names are kind of equally represented in all sorts of media. --Killuminator (talk) 14:47, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: A few months ago I wanted Roxelana to be moved to Hurrem Sultan, her Ottoman royal name. But users opposed the move and gave examples such as Avicenna and said that in these cases Latin name should be used. Keivan.fTalk 15:25, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Regarding Hurrem, there is this Turkish sitcom Magnificent Century, and since they of course use the Turkish name, the term Roxelana was largely pushed out of use in many places in SE Europe. --Killuminator (talk) 17:09, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
An example of a good move is Uluru. When I was learning about Australia in elementary school, the most common name was Ayers rock and it still is a rather widely used term, of that there can be no doubt. But, our teacher told us that Uluru war the correct name and over time, the word Uluru simply demoted the term Ayers rock. Words and meanings simply change over time, but we people are rather nostalgic beings and it takes us some time to adapt to changes. Anyway, a week has passed for those princely members of the Japanese imperial family, can we move them now ? Also I had a suggestion for this page, check out the last post on the talk page. --Killuminator (talk) 17:25, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: I'll try again to give a move request for Hurrem Sultan in the future. And about the Japanese Imperial Family, well an administrator will close the discussion tomorrow and move the pages himself. I will answer to your suggestion on the article's talk page. Also I posted a paragraph from Japanese Wikipedians on Prince Akishino's talk page that shows why their empresses are called like this. Keivan.fTalk 20:32, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
I asked for help from someone named Ryulong to help me with Japanese empresses' articles but he just removes my messages without any clear reason and escapes from answering. Keivan.fTalk 21:53, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
So much for traditional Japanese hospitality. Sadly, I'm not competent enough to trim down the family tree, do you know someone adequate for the job ? --Killuminator (talk) 22:42, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: Yes, I think I know someone. Keivan.fTalk 22:44, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: Also do you think Roxelana should be moved to Hurrem Sultan? Keivan.fTalk 11:56, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi there, I didn't see your question, I was so busy these day. My last exam was this morning and I hope I pass, yikes. That should clear my semester. I would support moving it to Hurrem Sultan since it's clearly gaining on usage seeing how there's a sitcom that propelled the popularity of Suleiman I and people of that era. There's even a song about it : HUREM . --Killuminator (talk) 13:54, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
And yeah, the admins didn't move those pages we discussed earlier, even though there is a clear unanimous vote on the matter. --Killuminator (talk) 13:55, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for posting three times in a row, my brain is scrambled. A similar person from the same time period as Roxelana would be the infamous Redbeard but still the page is titled by his real name Oruç Reis. --Killuminator (talk) 14:00, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: Hello. I hope you pass your exams. As I said previously I requested moving Roxelana to Hurrem Sultan which was opposed by some users. Many Ottoman sultanas were known by nicknames in Europe but on Wikipedia the form of their articles' titles is "Name Sultan". Her royal and official name is Hurrem Sultan and she is known by this name in Asia, Eastern Europe, and North Africa. Over 300 millions of people in over 50 countries watched the TV series Magnificent Century and almost all of those people know her under the title Hurrem Sultan. It's true that here is English Wikipedia but we shouldn't forget that this language is international. But I think this time you should give a move request and I'll support it absolutely. About Japanese royals, well I think there are too many pages listed to be moved and during these days one of admins close the discussion and move the pages. I'll try to talk to one of them to move the pages sooner. Keivan.fTalk 14:26, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: I think my brain is scrambled too. I wanted to say Africa but I wrote America. However as that TV series is currently airing in USA, so she will become known by the name Hurrem. Keivan.fTalk 14:29, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
@Killuminator: Giving some examples of Ottoman sultanas who also have nicknames: Mihrimah Sultan (Hurrem's daughter) is also known as Cameria, Mahidevran Sultan (Suleiman's another consort) is also known as Rosne Pranvere, and many other examples. Keivan.fTalk 14:33, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm not experienced enough to request it and I think it's a bit early. Regarding the family tree (Japan), some user made it EVEN SMALLER ! It's outrageous to me seeing how I wear glasses and reading such puny letters requires me too get closer to the screen. Can you get that guy to trim the family tree down pleaseeee ? --Killuminator (talk) 20:48, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
I just noticed something regarding Russian empresses, there is no navigational template for consorts. None, zippo, nix. --Killuminator (talk) 23:30, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I saw this discussion here now. I do not agree with it, because you are inventing a format that is incorrect. Gryffindor (talk) 09:29, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Regarding my user talk page[edit]

When someone reverts a message you left for them, the general consensus on Wikipedia is that person has read it and simply did not wish to respond to it. Your insistence that I respond to you is not a right you or anyone has as you have so dutifully figured out yourself when you reverted my response to the fact that when you link to someone else's screenname in a thread, it automatically notifies them that they were mentioned like if you tag someone on Facebook or Twitter. I apologize for having not left a more valid reason for the initial revert. I hit enter too many times and didn't get to put in the edit summary that I do not care and do not wish to be involved in your unnecessary request to change several articles' titles.

Also, you are incorrect in your knowledge of rollback. Not only do I not have WP:ROLLBACK (I use WP:TWINKLE) I am free to use it as I see fit in my userspace and I would not be considered edit warring if someone repeatedly posted there against my wishes.

So please, do not link to my userpage again unless you want to get my attention. Do not involve me in your request to move every page on a the empresses consort of Japan. And do not assume I'm Japanese.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 23:15, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

@Ryulong: Hi. First I apologize for saying bad words to you. I became really angry that time. I didn't become sad that why you're not interested in the topic, all I wanted to tell you that you could just say: "No, I can't help you". Since I hadn't heard that reverting someone's edits on your talk page means that you do not wish to be involved in his or her request, I thought that I had written something wrong in your talk page. I'm also a rollbacker but usually I don't use it for reverting the other users' edits and I try to answer them. And my purpose isn't to change Japanese empresses articles' titles, I just want to expand them. I needed a person who is interested in Japan's culture and know Japanese language and I thought that maybe you can help me. I asked some interested users for help and they answered. Again I apologize if I made you sad. Keivan.fTalk 23:32, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Also, before you revert that, the editor was blocked as a banned user's sock. Also he lies about any restrictions I may have not that they're even relevant here tbh.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 16:57, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

@Ryulong: Sorry but I didn't understand what you said. Which editor do you mean exactly? Keivan.fTalk 21:38, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
It's in your talk page history. I would rather apply WP:DENY to say anything further, but I've previously had to eal with editors who constantly restored attacks on me posted by banned editors sockpuppeting.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 23:44, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
