Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting[edit]

Please stop "correcting"--"twenty" requires no correction. It's perfectly fine and it's been discussed on the talk page. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 05:13, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

December 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you 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. Please stop. You've been reverted three times now. Drmies (talk) 05:17, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. —David Levy 05:26, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

(edit conflict)Your continued reversion of the number of dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School goes against Manual of Style guidelines concerning the agreement of compared quantities within a sentence, either both have to be spelled out or both have to be rendered as numerals. Shearonink (talk) 05:39, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Redd Foxx 1991, you also need to read up on WP:3RR to understand why you were blocked. After you first changed "twenty" to "20" and your change was reverted, you proceeded to override other editors five times with five reverts of your own: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. This is known as edit warring and a clear cut violation of the WP:3RR rule, hence you need to read up those policies before you return to editing.

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. WP:MOSNUM. Also consider that you've been blocked because od edit-warring. Tbhotch.

Weren't you just blocked for this exact same thing? - MrX 05:54, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. 5 cats and 32 dogs or five cats and thirty-two dogs, not five cats and 32 dogs.

Numbers as words[edit]

Hi. I notice that you are changing many numbers written as words to digits (e.g. I noticed this one, and then checked your edit history). Could you please read Wikipedia:MOSNUM#Numbers as figures or words and appreciate that it is not wrong to write something like "fifteen"? Also, common sense should prevail in some types of articles that favour numbers as words: for example historic articles, or articles with a lot of written-out numbers already in the text (to which the occasional number as a digit can appear jarring to the flow). Thanks in anticipation of your consideration of this issue. Cheers. GFHandel   02:52, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

January 2013[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to use disruptive, inappropriate or hard-to-read formatting, as you did at Eenie Meenie, you may be blocked from editing. There is a Wikipedia Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 05:48, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at Ironic (song), you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 03:43, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

A cheeseburger for you![edit]

Cheeseburger.png So when I see in Wikipedia:Recent Changes that someone has edited Sodomy laws in the United States, I clicked on the link expecting a highly inappropriate vandal. Imagine my surprise when I found it was a constructive edit! Keep up the good work! Howicus (talk) 00:35, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Hot August Night, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary.

Disambiguation link notification for May 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Keyed Up, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stranger in My House (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.

August 2013[edit]

Please stop. Continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Xylophagia, Human Clay, There's Gonna Be a Storm: The Complete Recordings 1966–1969, McJob, Mick Jagger, and so forth, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your account being blocked from editing.

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you remove the maintenance templates from Wikipedia articles without resolving the problem that the template refers to, as you did at Parity (mathematics), Integer, and Awesome God, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.
