Reverting back ? Why?[edit]

I am trying to clean up the Odissi dance page. Why are you reverting it back?

oops![edit]

I had no idea. Thanks for pointing it out. I will not use this account again then. But it will be great if you can leave the edits as they are. Some people pretty much messed that page and put their website links randomly at several place and I spend so much time cleaning them up :( Thanks again, Signing out for one last time: Editbot3  :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Editbot3 (talkcontribs) 22:26, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Odissi. Also, remember to sign your messages on discussion pages using four tildes. Thankx, Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 22:41, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

autoconfirmed[edit]

Just an FYI - autoconfirmed will kick in at 4 days/96 hours after an account is created (with the minimum # of edits, which you have surpassed), so it will happen automatically sometime on the 21st - you'll need to count hours to figure that one out :) Skier Dude (talk) 07:10, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Hours, lol. I didn't like that I had to make a new account. I forgot my password to my od account and, now, I have a new e-mail account. I have been with Wiki since Jan, 2007. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 07:13, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

"SliderAsia" article...[edit]

What's next for my article about "SliderAsia" then? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanleywlchen (talkcontribs) 14:54, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

An Administrator will view and give the final say. At the bottom of the message I placed on your TALK PAGE entitled YOUR FIRST ARTICLE explains the do's and don'ts when creating an ARTICLE. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 15:06, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

I have already followed through the "Your First Article" page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanleywlchen (talkcontribs) 15:16, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

You might would like to read COPY AND PASTE Wikipedia does not allow that. Not even if you "change the text a little bit". The best idea, since you made the claim that you are the copyrite holder, is to have someone else write the article. If your article does get deleted, don't take it personally. Who knows, they may let you rewrite it yourself. It's always good to be possitive. :) Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 15:28, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey, this is unreasonable. This is the whole thing I have written all by myself in addition to I'm the copyright owner. And I expanded the whole explanation by my own writings except the purpose of the program which is solely not amendable. I don't see any reason why you guys don't allow this article to go through and I feel sorry about this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stanleywlchen (talkcontribs) 22:25, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Gender and Social Capital[edit]

As reviewing administrator, I did not delete it, but made suggestions at Talk:Gender and social capital. BTW, when you greeted the new editor, you seem not to have told them you were placing a deletion tag on the article. As a concern of the overall general project goals for Wikipedia, we need to make special efforts to accommodate the work of new editors, and deletion is the last resort. DGG ( talk ) 13:30, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

I can't seem to find one for db same talk page. Can you point me to one? I suppose I could just tell the contributor. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 13:34, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Your rollback request[edit]

Hello Planetary Chaos Redux, I have granted rollback rights to your account in accordance with your request. Please be aware that rollback should be used to revert vandalism/spam/blatantly unconstructive edits, and that using it to revert anything else (such as by revert-warring or reverting edits you disagree with) can lead to it being removed from your account...sometimes without any warning, depending on the admin who becomes aware of any misuse. If you think an edit should require a reason for reverting, then don't use rollback and instead, use a manual edit summary. For practice, you may wish to see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback. Good luck. Acalamari 14:12, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. Advice duly noted. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 14:15, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Why do you keep reverting?[edit]

I added a link to http://all-tag.com which manfucatures security labels and security tags among other EAS products. How is this considered spam? 1). The site does not have a shopping cart. 2). the site provides information and technical specifications about EAS products.

Please advise.

Please review, LINK SPAM. The links that you have placed on several articles violate (please see YOUR EDITS HERE ) Wikipedia Policy. Please don't do that because, you can be blocked from editing Wikipedia and, we don't want that. Instead, please read the links I have provided for you so that you can be better informed on what is allowed and, what's not allowed here on Wikipedia. Thank you. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 16:56, 21 July 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for the prompt reply. I will have a look at the links. The intention is not to spam but to provide information direct from the manufacturer - especially since we are getting ready to do a series of articles and videos on EAS.
I can appreciate that, however, it is still not allowed here on Wikipedia. Sorry. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 17:18, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Could you have a look again on what you reverted in Plovdiv? Why you are actually removing foindation name wothout any provided reason in the intro and after placing on my talk page warnings for disruptive edoting. Pleasw provide om what grounds and on what Wikipedia rules you are removing this information and if not I wil recover the disruption tommorow, Regards — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.77.25.241 (talk) 14:55, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

I would not advise that. Aside from, three-revert rule, you have also added your own point of view to several articles as seen HERE , please review, neutral point of view policy. Also, remember to sign your messages on discussion pages using four tildes. Thank you. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 15:00, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

User talk:77.77.25.241[edit]

Note: users are free to deleted notifications from their own talk page. They may not refactor, but they may delete. Undoing such deletions is disruptive. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 22:10, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Am I not correct for following this, WP:Removing warnings? Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 22:19, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
That is, as the top indicates, outdated. General consensus is that an editor removing a warning means that they have read it. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 22:23, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
More importantly, you all have a content dispute and should seek the appropriate channels for resolution. I see discussion on Talk:Bulgaria but not on Talk:Plovdiv. After that, there's Wikipedia:NPOV dispute and a few other ways. But vandalism, that's not what we have here, according to the definition at WP:VANDAL. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 22:36, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
After further reading, I could't find a clear consensus about removing warnings from user pages. I did however, find the poll that was taken. Wikipedia:Removing_warnings_poll#Deleting_valid_vandalism_warnings_is_always_wrong,

Wikipedia:Removing_warnings_poll#Deleting_valid.2C_recently_given_vandalism_warnings_is_wrong Wikipedia:Removing_warnings_poll#Deleting_valid_vandalism_warnings_related_to_ongoing_disputes_is_wrong. If you can point me to the consensus, I would appreciate it. I would like to read it for my own growth and understanding. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 22:47, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

From what I have read, no consensus was reached (failed) as mentioned on a tag at the top of the page.Wikipedia:Centralized_discussion/Removing_warningsPlanetary Chaos Redux (talk) 22:57, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
I think there needs to be some kind of uniformity on this matter. Some Admins say yes, while others, say no. I feel, that if consensus failed, the policy reverts back to the current (old) policy on deleting warnings on user pages. Thoughts? Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 22:57, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

(OD) It's at WP:BLANKING. Dayewalker (talk) 23:15, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I read that. However, Now, I was acting on the only policy I know about warning removal and, I adhered to WP:AGF. I can not speak as to User:Jingiby but, I assume that he was acting on the old (current?) policy. I can't say much to WP:AFG on the annon with Edit summaries not exactly being Civil and the removal of the warnings looked, like Vandalism based on what the annon said in his/her edit summaries followed by their actions. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 23:29, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

No problem, now you know. WP:BLANKING is universal, any editor can remove comments from their own pages anytime they like, for any reason they choose. Archived is preferred, but IPs don't archive anyway so it's not worth edit warring over. As for vandalism, that has a very specific definition on Wikipedia. The IPs edits to his own page weren't vandalism. They may have been aggressive, but if you look at it from the other side, he's suddenly getting editors edit warring warnings on to his talk page. You gave him four of them in quick succession, if I'm reading that right. Dropping that many templated messages onto anyone's page will make them feel attacked.

I haven't looked into what the dispute was over, but those are settled by discussion, not just templated messages on talk pages. I understand you were acting in good faith, and I assume the other editors were as well. Now that we've all learned a little bit, I want you to feel free to drop by my talk page anytime you have a question. I'm certainly not an expert, but I'll be glad to help with any questions you guys might have. Good luck! Dayewalker (talk) 23:41, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Ah so true. I have been reviewing the history page for WP:Blanking and there seems to be alot of discontent over changes. I'm still trying to find the consensus for the policy change so that I can better understand it. When I left afew years ago, the policy was that only after an Admin delt with the user that disrupted after final final warning or removed warnings was a bad thing. It seems I missed alot while I was away. Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 23:50, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
I agree that it would be more helpful if those messages remain--sometimes you have to dig through the history to find out what's been going on. But blocked editors, for instance, are not allowed to remove the block notice as long as the block is active. I concur with Dayewalker's reading, above. Replacing those templates just adds to the general pressure, and the other editor called the removal of those warnings vandalism--small wonder the IP is getting upset. I hope, in the meantime, that y'all are talking. Also, in case this wasn't clear, I'm not accusing you of acting in bad faith, I hope that's clear. Thanks, and good luck, Drmies (talk) 00:00, 24 July 2011 (UTC)
I hold no hard feelings for anyone, lol. Yes, It is hard to dig through some one's history. I have found that out several times. When someone deletes, let's say, a warning 3, then some one like me, places a welcome on their page, then, that user disrupts again, well the RC patroller only see's that welcome and, places a test 1. In theory and in practice, annons and new reg user can be around awhile causing havoc because their slate looks clean. I think the new policy works more in the favor of dubious edits rather then constructive. It makes it easer for them and harder for us. Seems like the policy went backwards a bit. I do say, (see other IP I reported at AIV, two IP's but, one in the same) but, the same) I agree with User:Chillum.

Red links in year articles[edit]

Per WP:YEARS, births and deaths in year articles should be removed if the person does not presently have a Wikipedia article. Events may be deleted if there is no relevant Wikipedia article. (If it's not important enough to have a relevant Wikipedia article, it's not important enough to be listed.) In other words, on year articles, items with red links should generally be deleted. In addition, you are restoring some vandalism; see WT:YEARS#Bullwinkle is a dope. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 05:43, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

  • I think I can do one better then just not red linking in years, or deaths. Infact, names of persons shouldn't be red linked anywhere on Wikipedia. Something I just read, even though I cite the page often. WP:REDNOT say's, "Red links to personal names should be avoided, particularly when the name is reported in a context which might cause readers to hold a low or critical opinion of the named individual. Frequently a red linked name has been placed in an article, and subsequently a different editor has created an article about an entirely different person with the same or a similar name. Aside from the basic misidentification involved, redlinking has led to notable, but not very prominent, persons being incorrectly identified on Wikipedia as accused or convicted criminals, sex workers, or persons involved in or associated with other forms of disreputable conduct." So, now I know not to red link people, lessen learned. But now, I can perform more efficiently. ;) Planetary Chaos Redux (talk) 09:49, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

Sir, Where i can change username? — Preceding unsigned comment added by DoabaHeadlines (talkcontribs) 10:38, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi! I'm glad you asked. Make sure you read the username policy first to better understand the policy. There are two ways you can change your user name.. If you want to keep your your contributions go here request user name change and follow the instructions. The second way, is to simply register for a new account. Make sure to note on your current talk page that you have changed your user name because of the policy violation. Just, don't use that account after that, you should be fine! I hope this helps!

Removal of maintanence templates in Kagney Linn Karter[edit]

The reason specified on the maintenance template on article Kagney Linn Karter is really inappropriate. Considering the fact that she is a pornstar, it would be difficult (and unwise) to find material about her early life. I guess you were patrolling the pages using Huggle or something, and didn't really bother to see why I removed it. Anyway please take a look and do the neeedful. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.248.114.51 (talk) 13:28, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

I used to edit Wikipedia (User:Finemann), and am well aware about that rule. And I still feel that the maintenance template regarding that particular issue is inappropriate. Such things should go on the article talk page I guess, or on the talk page of Pornography Task Force (dunno if it exists?). Anwyay, don't bother :) 115.248.114.51 (talk) 15:44, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
Maintenance tags (depending on what kind is used) either go at the top of the article or, in a section of the article (like the tags we are discussing) and, there are guidelines for this procedure. Please see, tag placement (one), tag placement (two) and, MOS lead section policy (placement of Maintenance tags). I hope this is enough information for you. Best wishes.

Peter Stanley has no neutral POV[edit]

Here is a question for you PCR. It is asked in good faith and with no hostile intentions (adding that because people can and do often read into what a person writes in a message.

The question is; how would you rewrite the following quote to reflect that there is considerble controversy over what Peter Stanley has written while retaining neutral POV? My bet is that you will not satisfy Nick D and he will just go over your head.

Here is the quote in full. No I have not reverted.

He has recently been a major participant in a public debate regarding the "Battle for Australia", contesting opinions that events in Darwin in 1942 during the Second World War represented Japan's intention to invade Australia. He argues that the wartime slogan of a 'battle for Australia', used by John Curtin in February 1942 in anticipating invasion by Japan, was taken up in the mid-1990s and applied unjustifiably. Furthermore, in his article Threat made manifest (Griffith Review, Spring 2005) Peter describes the desire of Australians to 'want to believe that they were part of a war' to be 'rather pathetic'.

Mr Stanley may very well be correct in his analysis of the situation. I also have no dispute about his integrity or qualification. He is one of our leading war historians. Even if he is wrong he has created considerable debate.

Either war - his statement in "Threat made manifest" is highly controvertial and no matter what he may consider today he cannot withdraw those words. The difficulty that people have at present is creating a balanced POV relating to this issue as no soon as an alteration is made Nick D or another 'Stanley Fan' immediatley reverts claiming that they are protecting neutral POV when in actuality they are preventing a neutral POV from being recorded.

He has recently been a major participant in a public debate regarding the "Battle for Australia", contesting opinions that events in Darwin in 1942 during the Second World War represented Japan's intention to invade Australia. He argues that the wartime slogan of a 'battle for Australia', used by John Curtin in February 1942 in anticipating invasion by Japan, was taken up in the mid-1990s and applied unjustifiably.

There is nothing in the above that in any way indicates what the other point of view is or what it is that Peter has said that people consider controvertial.

Given this I suggest you open the topic up for comments and get a range of views and not just Nick D (the guardian) and other supporters of Peter Stanley who seem to want to monopolise anything on wiki related to him and in doing so prevent a neutral POV from being recorded. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.148.43.180 (talk) 15:45, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello! I wouldn't be a good person to come to about this issue since I have already been involved but, there is a way to get an some help with this issue from someone or, several other editors who haven't edited the article in question. This process would be to file a Requests for comment. It will help bring more people (and maybe some with more insight then I could bring to the table) into the discussion. I know I'm not that much help with this but, maybe the above action can bring a resolution to this. Best of luck. Planetary ChaosTalk 05:50, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I will add a request for content as suggested, although I am quite sure that editor Nick-D will simply remove it and argue that it is an attempt at vandalism. Since I made my last edit I note that someone else has already tried to give the page a NPOV and was defeated by Nick-D each time (although I only read their first attempt, and cannot comment on their other attempts as I did not read them). I have a feeling Nick-D may possibly be Peter Stanley, although I cannot prove that - although it is interesting that in any article related to Peter Stanley the editor controlling the page is always Nick-D and will not allow for any view other than those that agree with Peter Stanley's views.

Francis the Preying Mantis[edit]

I reviewed your talk from the discussion. The wiki was inspired by a recent article about Wiki Project: Public_Art. Francis the Preying Mantis is a 20+ year old piece of public art which, although maintained by the museum, was built by someone outside of the institution and sits on land owned by the City of New York, not the Staten Island Children's Museum (which is a non profit). The mantis has become a local icon and is something that is enjoyed by over 250,000 school children a year. The wiki serves no economic purpose, and was created by volunteer students as merely a way to educate people about the history of this artwork, and as a tool to introduce students to Wikipedia as a teaching tool. I realize now that the article was being edited as a live article and not in the sandbox (my mistake). Should I have the students continue their work in the sandbox and then submit when it is complete? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Falecore (talkcontribs) 21:06, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Falecore and welcome to Wikipedia. To get started, I need to know, are you a teacher or, a student? I would also like you to please review, THIS user name policy regarding shared user names. Planetary ChaosTalk 21:24, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

re: shared account[edit]

I am an educator. I have read the policy on shared user-names. It is understood, and this account will no longer be shared with anyone but myself. Do you feel the topic in question posses the validity to be given its own Wiki? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Falecore (talkcontribs) 22:00, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Great! Now, I would assume that you as the educator would edit under this name? In any case, I will post an informative welcome on the user name you are using now that is designed for teacher/students. About the article Francis the Preying Mantis. As soon as you can, you or your students need to provide multiple reliable sources so that the article can assert it's notability. Otherwise, in time, the article may be deleted.

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the links, I see that I have a lot to read and learn! For the time being, I have added more citations, and replaced

Falecore (talk) 02:26, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

You are very welcome! Just like you, I once was a new Wikipedian and yes, there is a lot to learn but, once you get the hang of it, Wikipedia is a nice place to be. Good luck and best wishes. If you have any more questions, feel free to leave me a message. Planetary ChaosTalk 02:38, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Phantom OS[edit]

Last July you tagged Phantom OS with a copypaste template.[6] I am trying to track down the issue and remove the specific sections that were copied and pasted. Do you recall where the material was first published? Thanks! --Guy Macon (talk) 16:52, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

  • There were "special characters" that were obviously copied from the from the originating source, where ever that was (I couldn't find it at the time). I see the article has been improved. It should be ok to remove the copyvio tag now. Thank you for helping fix the article! Planetary ChaosTalk 22:31, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of A New Love Ishtory[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article A New Love Ishtory has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:TOOSOON, or maybe not at all—is there a movie industry equivalent of vaporware? I'm having trouble finding any substantial media coverage of this perennially upcoming film.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare
