Your edits to Norman Lebrecht[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Norman Lebrecht 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. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Voceditenore (talk) 04:09, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Account unvanished[edit]

As you have decided to continue editing and have thus violated the terms of WP:COURTESYVANISHING, all of your edits to this page have been unvanished. While the edits from your previous account are still linked with the vanished username, this notice is to serve as a pointer to those edits in case they are needed. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 02:56, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

tyvm (thank you very much). I was not aware of these terms — WP:COURTESYVANISHING — I was not given them. I was given a very nice - in its completness - the simple word, "done."
There was no decision involved in breaching the laws of allowed knowledge according to what we have here within Wikipedia. The opportunity for me, as i could perceive it to be, as it was presented to me, was the opening to recommence on a what would be a clean slate of wiki contributions. regards. --Laurencebeck (talk) 03:14, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Thrilla in Manila[edit]

Information.svg Hi. Please do not add or restore unsourced material to articles, as you did with these edits to Thrilla in Manila, as this violates Wikipedia's Verifiability policy. That material was moved to the talk page for a valid reason: Wikipedia requires that the material in its articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable (usually secondary) sources explicitly cited in the text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here. The fact that you think such material is "the requirement of this encyclopedia" does not mitigate the need to adhere to those policies.

In addition, please do not add notes to the reader or arbitrary indentations in the body of articles, as you did with the above edits.

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. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 16:33, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

thank you very much, Nightscream.
I placed the added information on rounds 9 – 14 because there was no description of them in the article which led to the last round, round 14, and particularly round 14. I am by no means a fight follower but a general reader and on behalf of other general readers I took what was on the talk page to the article page.
Presently there is no description of those rounds and a paragreaph begins as it had before
Seeing the results of round 14, Eddie Futch decided to stop the fight
Well, thanks very much, I said to myself, what happened in round 14?
So that the reader of the article would know what the quality of the new information was from the talk page there was added by me the information to keep the reader alert and the indentation was intended to give further clarity to the, by Wikipedia standards, second grade information. ( which information gave the reason for the Frazier trainer Eddie Futch to call the end to the bout.) --Laurencebeck (talk) 20:26, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
". . . but a general reader and on behalf of other general readers I took what was on the talk page to the article page."
Thus undoing what I did back in January when I moved that material from the article to the talk page in the first place. Again, did it not occur to you that it was moved here for a reason? Did you not read what that reason was at the top of the section I began for it above?
Seeing yourself as acting "on behalf of other general readers" does not allow us to violate Wikipedia policies, including the Verifiability, Citation and Reliable Sources policies, which require that material in Wikipedia articles be accompanied by citations of reliable, verifiable sources. Nor does it justify bad formatting or addition of notes to the reader. The information in question was not "new", as it had been removed from the article almost a year earlier, and your note had no bearing on its "quality". The quality of material included in articles is predicated on its verifiability, its support by inline citations, its proper weight, and the quality of its writing and its presentation/composition. Indenting a chunk of the article and placing a note above it stating that it was previously on the talk page does not ensure its quality; it lowers the quality of the article.
If you find sources for that material, please feel free to re-add it, with citations of those policies. Thanks, and Happy Holidays. Nightscream (talk) 01:02, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Verify that now is added: Not exactly bridge work from rounds 8,9 to 13,14 but rounds 13,14 given description from the Daily Mirror sports writer of the day. --Laurencebeck (talk) 02:10, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Non-free image of Medesa book cover File:Medea_Diana_Rigg_programme_lo_res.jpg on Diana Rigg[edit]

Hello Laurencebeck, that non-free image of the cover of Medea booklet is not permitted in the article about Diana Rigg because it violates copyright. Please read Wikipedia:Non-free_content#Images policy which states:

Cover art: Cover art from various items, for visual identification only in the context of critical commentary of that item (not for identification without critical commentary).

So it's ok on the Medea (play) page itself, but not on the Diana Rigg page.

Thanks, Optimale Gu 14:37, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

The photographic representation of the Medea programme for the 1992 production at the Wyndham's Theatre is placed adjacent to the paragraphs and within the section which is given to that part of Diana Rigg's career devoted to her life as a theatre actor.
It is commentary on the whole aspect of theatre and theatre going, and that is the theatre going experience of all those from the Upper Balcony to the Dress Circe to the Stalls.
I will give consideration to this later. --Laurencebeck (talk) 20:49, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm IronGargoyle. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page George Cole (actor) because it seemed inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links. Thanks.

Don't edit war. If you want to add an Idiotbox, go to the talk page and DISCUSS, rather than edit warring. There is a consensus not to have the box there, so edit warring to add one in is inadvisable. - SchroCat (talk) 23:58, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Diana Rigg photographed by Patrick Lichfield, 1981.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Diana Rigg photographed by Patrick Lichfield, 1981.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image licensed as "for non-commercial use only," "non-derivative use" or "used with permission," it has not been shown to comply with the limited standards for the use of non-free content. [1], and it was either uploaded on or after 2005-05-19, or is not used in any articles. If you agree with the deletion, there is no need to do anything. If, however, you believe that this image may be retained on Wikipedia under one of the permitted conditions then:

  • state clearly the source of the image. If it has been copied from elsewhere on the web you should provide links to: the image itself, the page which uses it and the page which contains the license conditions.
  • add the relevant copyright tag.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. January (talk) 18:55, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
