Speedy deletion of Vmoto[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Vmoto requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a company or corporation, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 03:59, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Transformers (film)[edit]

I noticed you had a little problem reverting completely. What I do when reverting vandalism or a mistake I edit the revision before the first piece of vandalism or mistake happens. Of course if there is a valid edit in-between I copy and paste that to make sure it will appear. Hope I'm not sounding confusing. TheBlazikenMaster (talk) 15:30, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

I have nothing but sheer gratitude for you stamping out rumours. Keep it up. :) Alientraveller (talk) 10:26, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Ah man, you missed the guy who added Jazz based on the idiot who thought the Solstice was the new Corvette. Still, thanks for everything in keeping the speculation away. Alientraveller (talk) 12:08, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of List of Celica GT4 miniatures[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Stop using original research to spread disinformation[edit]

If you did quick actual research, instead of playing original research (which is something you should NEVER do), you'd find out all the sources using "Q" are never say "Q4", but "Q3" instead.([1][2][3] etc.)

And once again, STOP USING ORIGINAL RESEARCH. Even if it somehow won't result in disinformation like this.

Just NEVER. DO. IT. EVER. --Niemti (talk) 00:23, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

I'll be "happy" if you NEVER USE ORIGINAL RESEARCH again. --Niemti (talk) 00:34, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

You need to get a better handle on just what original research is before you start bleating about it. This could have been resolved much earlier if you'd acknowledge and accepted my core argument instead of constructing a strawman distraction and focusing on the minutia. -Oosh (talk) 00:36, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

I'll tell you what original research is:

"The only way you can show your edit is not original research is to cite a reliable published source that contains the same material. Even with well-sourced material, if you use it out of context, or to advance a position not directly and explicitly [bolded as in original] supported by the source, you are engaging in original research". Also your spread of disinformation because of your original research is not "the minutia". --Niemti (talk) 00:52, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

See Civilization (video game)[edit]

This is how every other Civ article should look like. --Niemti (talk) 05:03, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Civilization II is generally fine too (more reception is needed, and more references, and there is no development section, but the gameplay is short and I think with no game guide material). --Niemti (talk) 05:05, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

I know the articles need a lot of work, I welcome your input and I think you'll find we agree on a lot of things re: it, but it needs to be done incrementally and requires discussion prior to major changes. Have a look at the Talk pages and you'll see there is a long and contentious history here. -Oosh (talk) 05:10, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

I did nothing "indiscriminately", just put the tags and removed the sub-sections (and also the input line from the infobox, and OF COURSE the tables that I think everyone had anough time to copy them anywhere they wanted). There's nothing to discuss, Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not is "a widely accepted standard that all editors should normally follow." --Niemti (talk) 05:13, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Tags go for it, but the sub-headings were useful for comprehension and navigation, as for the tables that's not the point. There is always something to discuss, you can't apply 'guidelines' rigidly and blindly, please join the discussion regarding them on the Civ V talk page and you will likely find me in agreement with you. Don't make me play devil's advocate. -Oosh (talk) 05:18, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

No, are NOT useful for comprehension and navigation. Because the section should be completely rewritten, now it's a game guide, and getting away with the sub-section it's a first step. Once again, see the articles for the first 2 games in the series. This is how it should look like: a few short paraghraphs. And no, I'm not discussing. I'm only informing. --Niemti (talk) 05:22, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

While the article remains bloated as it is they help. Chop down the headings as you prune their text. Doing one without the other works to the detriment of the article and doesn't improve it. If you don't have time to do that then flag it and leave. You needn't be so confrontational about this either. -Oosh (talk) 05:26, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

June 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Civilization V 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. MASEM (t) 05:36, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Just FYI I also warned Nietri too. --MASEM (t) 05:40, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Niemti has missing the Civilization V list again[edit]

Niemti has did it again and the list of Civs in Civ5 are hiding, can you revert it back? ApprenticeFan work 21:48, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Planetary Annihilation, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kevin Francis (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.

Deletion of K-PAX (film) Post[edit]

Dear Oosh,

On Sept. 29, 2013 you deleted my post of Sept. 28, 2013 pertaining to the K-PAX (film) copyright controversy, without the courtesy of an explanation. As I believe the historical information I referenced was on topic and advanced the discussion, would you please help me to understand why you deleted my post?

Thank you, Michael Ronayne (talk) 11:48, 30 September 2013 (UTC)


Oosh,

First my apologies, I missed the abbreviation code, perhaps it was too abbreviated or I am too longwinded. I am not sure what my post even reaches the level of original research. If you had the opportunity to play the “Field Study” recording in Archive.org the similarities are unmistakable. Google Books has a snippet view of “Creating K-PAX” available but Gene Brewer makes no mention of “Field Study” or Peter Phillips in his book. There is no cross correlation of the works on any pages indexed by Google. The simplest solution may be to send Gene Brewer an Email and ask him, in the hope he responds.

Gene Brewer and Eliseo Subiela are of an age where they could have listened X Minus One or read Galaxy magazine and been inspired by Peter Phillips; or there could be absolutely no connection at all. I have not listened to X Minus One in over 50 years and have no memory of many of the shows but I recently downloaded the entire collection and halfway through a recording I remember that “the butler did it”!

I did find this retro review; I will also Email the reviewer. Unfortunately the Kindle edition for Galaxy Science Fiction April 1951 is not available yet.

I will let you know if I find anything,

Thanks, Michael Ronayne (talk) 14:51, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Guardians of the Galaxy[edit]

Thank you for this edit, that was my mistake. I completely forgot about that whole grammatical element, and was focused on the fact that numbers >10 are written out...except when they start a sentence. Thanks for fixing my mistake! Sock (pka Corvoe) (be heard)(my stuff) 12:08, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Yeah... I knew it was the member for Chifley. When I checked though I found Ed Nurredin. So thanks for the correction. TheGRVOfLightning (talk) 08:16, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@TheGRVOfLightning: No worries, his middle name is Nurredin, so that's probably how it slipped in there. -Oosh (talk) 07:00, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Yeah. That would be why. Alas why I hate the: Last, First, Middle Name system. TheGRVOfLightning (talk) 08:16, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

WP:DATERET[edit]

It would be more diplomatic to post on the talk page and gain consensus first before you unilaterally change the date format and remove informational templates. Keep in mind that this can be construed as disruptive if it becomes a habit. Mad Max: Fury Road has had enough nationalistic edit wars lately, and we really don't need another one to erupt over the date format right after we had one over the country of origin and whether it was a remake or not. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:36, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Paddington[edit]

Projects do not own articles and local consensus trumps something that is neither a guideline or a policy. Next time, engage brain rather than knee-jerk edit war, and perhaps try and join in the ongoing thread on the talk page. - SchroCat (talk) 06:32, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I have. It was a matter of timing. But thanks for adding an ad hominem to your list of transgressions. -Oosh (talk) 06:34, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Looked like sound advice to me. The Rambling Man (talk) 06:45, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
I'd expect a more considered approach from an admin. Clearly I was mistaken. Not to mention disappointed. -Oosh (talk) 07:18, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Well perhaps common sense ought to play a part in your decision-making then. I'm incredibly disappointed that an editor of your experience is making such WP:LAME editing decisions. Shocking. The Rambling Man (talk) 07:34, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
I'd happily accept that criticism were it not for the fact this is part of a pattern of disruptive behaviour embarked on by John Snow II which for some unknown reason SchroCat has chosen to tacitly endorse. -Oosh (talk) 07:44, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I reject your use of the term "common sense", it's dismissive and implies I'm out on a limb with no course for debate, the history of this issue and the discussion it has garnered clearly demonstrates your error.
And I reject your use of the term "crusade" amongst others, it's inflammatory and demonstrates that you are not actually applying common sense here at all, in fact it could be argued that you are on your own counter-crusade. Time to move onto something productive. The Rambling Man (talk) 07:56, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps you have a point. It's one I'd happily address if you'd done me the same courtesy. -Oosh (talk) 08:18, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
