August 2010[edit]

Start hand.svg Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that your username,, may not meet Wikipedia's username policy because it appears to be an e-mail address, which are not valid as usernames. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. As an alternative, you may file for a change of username, or you may simply create a new account and use that for editing. Please let me know if you have any questions. Best wishes, Rje (talk) 18:08, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

I have used the same username in Finnish-language Wikipedia since 2006. In my opinion, this is not a proper e-mail address per se because there is no "@" involved, and this also makes it easier to recognize my contributions. (talk) 13:29, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
This account has been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia because your username,, does not meet our username policy.

Your username is the only reason for this block. You are welcome to choose a new username (see below).

A username should not be promotional, related to a "real-world" group or organization, misleading, offensive, or disruptive. Also, usernames may not end in the word "bot" unless the account is an approved bot account.

You are encouraged to choose a new account name that meets our policy guidelines. Alternatively, if you have already made edits and you wish to keep your existing contributions under a new name, then you may request a change in username by:

  1. Adding {{unblock-un|your new username here}} on your user talk page. You should be able to do this even though you are blocked, as you can usually still edit your own talk page. If not, you may wish to contact the blocking administrator by clicking on "E-mail this user" on their talk page.
  2. At an administrator's discretion, you may be unblocked for 24 hours to file a request.
  3. Please note that you may only request a name that is not already in use, so please check here for a listing of already taken names. The account is created upon acceptance, thus do not try to create the new account before making the request for a name change. For more information, please see Wikipedia:Changing username.
If you feel that you were blocked in error, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|Your reason here}}, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first. -- Cirt (talk) 06:29, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Allowing username change to Mlang.Finn (talk · contribs). Please put this request in at Wikipedia:Changing username as soon as possible to avoid re-blocking.

Request handled by: JamesBWatson (talk)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request. (talk) 13:38, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

I am requesting comment from the blocking admin (unfortunately there is no "unblock-un on hold" template as yet; perhaps I should create one). I don't think we block email addresses on sight like we used to. Daniel Case (talk) 14:20, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Comment: I was about to come here and unblock, but I see the user has already been unblocked. No objections from me! :) -- Cirt (talk) 15:58, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Expanding Purge (novel)[edit]

Hey, I am going to expand Purge (novel) per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (novels). Want to help? You seem to be pretty well versed in the book. Sadads (talk) 17:59, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

January 2011[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not replace pages with blank content, as you did with this edit to Category:Films directed by Lucile Hadzihalilovic, as this is confusing to readers. The page's content has been restored for now. If there is a problem with the page, it should be edited or reverted to a previous version if possible; if you think the page should be removed entirely, see further information. Thank you. ” TeLeS (T @ L C S) 13:14, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. - Mike Rosoft (talk) 16:35, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

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 Herr Pastor. 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. Cognate247 (talk) 20:21, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Seppo Heikinheimo, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Otava (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.
