New WikiProject Novels initiative[edit]

We have begun a new initiative at the WikiProject Novels: an improvement drive. As a member listed here, you are being notified. Please see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels#5-5-5 Improvement Drive and Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Collaboration for more details. Also I would like to remind you to keep an eye on the project talk page at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels. Thanks, Sadads (talk) 01:56, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Manuel Klein[edit]

Hi. You added information to this article but did not add a citation to the source where you got this info. Please add a ref. Thanks! -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:46, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Best regards, -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:00, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Oz[edit]

Hi. It's important to introduce background information for musicals. Please don't delete it. See, for example, Hair (musical), Flower Drum Song and Carousel (musical). All of these have been reviewed by numerous editors and promoted to GA-class or FA-class. Also, please see our guidelines at Wikipedia:WikiProject Musical Theatre/Article Structure. Also see WP:LEAD, which explains that there should be a summary of the whole article in the Lead, and then the article is laid out at full length below. I know the article is just a short article now, but eventually it will be expanded with more information. WP:MUSICALS guidelines about background/history sections says that the section should answer the following questions:

  • What is the source material for this work? What is notable about the older work or how has the musical changed its focus?
  • How did this musical come to be written and/or produced?
  • Whose idea was it to make this musical?
  • Was this musical started in any workshops or previews? What was unusual about them? (For example, in a workshop of the precursor to Dreamgirls, Nell Carter's performance influenced how the show developed, and this should be addressed in this section.) -- [User:Ssilvers|Ssilvers]] (talk) 21:08, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the message. Please explain what you see as resembling "advertising". I don't see it, but I'd be happy to discuss it and try to solve your concern. -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:13, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we need the word "famous" to describe the film, if that's what's bothering you. I'll delete it. -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:24, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the message. Yes, that's ok. Of course the film IS famous, but we don't need to say so: we can give the evidence instead - that it won the Academy Award. Personally, I think we should add that it continues to be broadcast on TV, but I'll leave it to you as to whether you want to add that now. I think it's worth noting, as it also makes it crystal clear to most readers that we are, indeed, talking about THAT version.  :-) -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:34, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Do you know how to collapse the big Oz navbox at the bottom of these articles? It seems very obtrusive. Best regards, -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:21, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

I suggested, as a compromise, that the 1939 film adaptation bore a stronger resemblance to the original that "many" previous versions. Does that work for you? -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:49, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your patience in this discussion. I will copy the new sentence to the 1987 article. I understand that you are familiar with the literature in this area. Can you find a citation for the sentence? We should give a page range from a source that compares these versions and notes which of them were more or less similar to the original book. Perhaps we can cite to a chapter or two in the Swartz book? Thanks for any help! -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:41, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

I added a plot summary. Can you check it and add any important details? For instance, after the Wizard takes off in his rocket ship, does Glinda show up, like in the film, or does Dorothy make a journey to Glinda's home, like in the novel? All the best! -- Ssilvers (talk) 17:35, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

I removed the information that you disputed. Is it ok now? All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 05:20, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Mo[edit]

I am very skeptical about the suitability of the Baum book being in the Alice template. -- Evertype· 15:52, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Can you edit the comment you made on my page? There's a syntax error and I am not sure what you intended to say. -- Evertype· 18:06, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Carolyn Sigler lists Baum's Dot and Tot of Merryland, The Magical Monarch of Mo, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz all three in her bibliography (though she does not annotate it)... indeed the Wonderful Wizard is a story about "girl who goes to otherworld and has adventures" while if I understand it the Magical Monarch is a set of stories without a common character through them. (I could be wrong; I haven't read it). Is there more in Baum criticism that discusses the nature of the imitation or influence? -- Evertype· 19:19, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject Novels Collaboration for February[edit]

Thank you everyone who participated in the January Collaboration, it was quite a success with 5 new C class articles, 3 stub kills and several articles were removed from our backlogs. In support of the Great Backlog Drive, the WikiProject Novels Collaboration for February is going to help remove backlog candidates in the backlogs related to WikiProject Novels. Please join us, and help us wikify, reference, clean up plot sections and generally improve Novels content, Sadads (talk) 21:36, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Oz deletions[edit]

Two things:

  1. Remember the General Notability Guideline. Being a character in a book ≠ being noteworthy enough for a Wikipedia article. The threshold is sources; all the nominated articles have source problems; and in addition were stubs and are from some of the lesser-known books
  2. Questioning my competency can be construed a personal attack

February 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Human feces, please cite a reliable source for the content of your edit. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. RadioFan (talk) 01:38, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Please do NOT add unsourced information about living people to articles. Watching a video and claiming you saw something is not a WP:RS by wikipedia standards. Again, do NOT add potentially damaging information about living people to articles. You will be blocked if it continues. Please read up on WP:BLP, and it wouldn't hurt if you reviewed our sourcing and verifiability policies. -Andrew c [talk] 16:16, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

This is your last warning. If you continue to add unsourced, especially possibly damaging or negative information, about living individuals to Wikipedia articles, you will be blocked. If you don't understand the policy, please ask questions. This is a matter we take very seriously on Wikipedia. -Andrew c [talk] 00:45, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I'd be glad to discuss article content further. And I'd also apologize and retract my warning above if proven wrong. But the text you added, the actual content, could in no way be derived from the 'source' in question. If I am wrong, please quote me the portion of the source that I am apparently missing. I don't see specific actors named, I don't see specific sex acts named, I don't see anything about closeups or anything that you added. I'd really like to know how you found that in the source. But again, let's continue this on the article's talk page. -Andrew c [talk] 01:30, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Inappropriate edits[edit]

This seems nothing short of childish vandalism. You will be blocked from editing if this or other disruption continues. Toddst1 (talk) 19:10, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Scott Walker (politician), please cite a reliable source for the content of your edit. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Request reason:

I thought Yahoo! News qualified as a reliable source. Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 20:05, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Decline reason:

It depends; there's nothing inherently flawed about Yahoo News, especially in that they frequently host AP and Reuters content, among others. The issue is that nothing in the yahoo source says anything to support the claims you made here, where you accuse a living person of illegal conduct. Ignoring that, you don't cite the article - you very specifically cited a comment on the article. Comments of this type are absolutely not reliable sources - anyone can post anything. This is a gross violation of WP:BLP. UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 20:22, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

'This source says the same thing that I said on my edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpUWM1EtJCs . Is The Young Turks not considered a reliable news source, either? A citation error is not a valid reason for a block.'

Decline reason:

But you are not blocked for citing "Young Turks", whatever that is, but for citing an anonymous comment about a living person as the source for derogatory information about that person. You still do not seem to understand the problem.  Sandstein  21:58, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

I understand the problem. I made a citation error. The Young Turks does specifically state that using state troopers to bring Congress back into the state is illegal. You are in severe violation of WP:civility in doing this to me. Todd's comment regarding the David Friedman citation is an outright lie. And besides, David is openly gay. I have his e-mail address, and I am sure that he will find it asinine that you have blocked me for mentioning his partner.--Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 04:25, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

You were not blocked for mentioning his partner - you were blocked for synthesizing that he shares a house - an assertion clearly not supported by your source - after numerous warnings. You seem to continue to be having great difficulty complying with WP:V and WP:SYN despite numerous warnings and attempts to clarify the policies with you.

The nonsense at Scott Walker, human feces and other pages, just illustrate a broader instance of this problem. Toddst1 (talk) 05:28, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Request reason:

What did I add that was unsourced? The only thing I can think of is on Black Orchid. There are two issues of Suicide Squad where Black Orchid's disappearance is mentioned, but I haven't been able to determine the issues, although they were within The Janus Directive.

Request reason:

I broke none of the guidelines on WP:EL that I can see. Please identify which one I broke. I needed to source the claim that the cited article did not support. Also note Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not censored: "However, some articles may include text, images, or links which some people may find objectionable, when these materials are relevant to the content. Discussion of potentially objectionable content should not focus on its offensiveness but on whether it is appropriate to include in a given article. Beyond that, "being objectionable" is generally not sufficient grounds for removal of content.". In addition, she told Sean Hannity on his show just what she was doing in the video, although she did not mention she was viewing pornography and claimed to have been alone in the room, while someone is clearly there with her moving the camera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSLKmnAACKI I did not state this, because it might violate WP:OR, but it cannot be argued that it is an irrelevant link, nor can it be considered a BLP violation (its inclusion could be a topic for debate, but since there is no discussion of this matter on the talk page, it is an extraordinary stretch to consider my edit a violation) considering she has gone on international television and talked about the video in question.Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 14:41, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Enjoy the remainder fo your time off. Before you come back please review this matter and reconsider your approach to sourcing and synthesizing content or you will be blocked again. By the way I am revoking your ability to post further unblock requests, you may contact WP:ARBCOM by email if you wish to appeal further. Beeblebrox (talk) 19:37, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Nomination of Knook for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Knook is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Knook until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Purplebackpack89 22:50, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Objection to Oz deletions, removal of content[edit]

this and this indicate that you have neither familiarized yourself with the policies surrounding deletion, nor the guidelines for notability. Just because a character is in a book or two does not automatically qualify it for its own article here; just because a character is in one chapter does not mean it should appear without any contex. Note that you being blocked and therefore unable to participate in the discussion is probably not a good reason, nor is “this is idiotic”, but you could try a Deletion review anyway. Have a nice day!

Calling me a vandalizing deletionist[edit]

Excuse me? If you haven’t noticed, I’ve added 32KB of content to this article even if you take off the list, and 56KB of content if you don’t. That doesn’t sound like vandalizing deletionism to me, that sounds like talking a craptacular list of redlinks and making it into a decent article. And just because you haven’t written the blurbs (I’ve been the one writing most of the blurbs around here), you can just add the blurbs as you write them Purplebackpack89≈≈≈≈ 18:52, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Calling good faith edits vandalism[edit]

Please do not use the word "vandalism" to describe good faith edits in a content dispute. "Vandalism" has a very specific meaning on Wikipedia, which you can read about at WP:VANDAL; the quick summary is that vandalism is something which indisputably is done to damage the encyclopedia. Purplebackpack's reversion of your addition is a content dispute, and clearly not vandalism. Calling another editor's good faith edits vandalism is generally considered to be a personal attack, and thus not allowed under WP:NPA.

Furthermore, you need to respect the standard BRD editing process--that is, if you add something to an article, and another editor reverts it, don't re-add the information and thus start an edit war. Instead, discuss it on the talk page until consensus is reached (which is clearly not the case yet). Thanks. Qwyrxian (talk) 21:18, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello. You appear to be involved in an edit war on List of Oz characters ‎ . While the three-revert rule is hard and fast, please be aware that you can be blocked for edit warring without making 3 reverts to an article in 24 hours. You are not entitled to 3 reverts and are expected to cooperatively engage other editors on talk pages rather than reverting their edits. Note that posting your thoughts on the talk page alone is not a license to continue reverting. You must reach consensus. Continued edit warring may cause you to be blocked.

Re: Snake deity[edit]

Replying to your post at Talk:Egyptian pantheon:

There were a lot (a lot) of gods that could be represented by cobras (Meretseger, Wadjet, and Renenutet, for example). You say the snake god didn't have a cobra hood, but it's possible that it was a cobra depicted without its hood spread; I've never heard of such a thing, but there's tremendous room for variation in Egyptian art. The only god that I'm sure was consistently shown as a snake without a hood was Apep, but I've never seen him in human-animal form, just as a really long snake. My best guess would be one of the bizarre demons of the Duat, who are shown en masse in funerary texts but don't have much individual identity.

All this assumes, of course, that the wall display was based on genuine Egyptian art, rather than something made up in modern times. A. Parrot (talk) 20:50, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Leonard Kastle has passed away. I thought you might want to know[edit]

His Memorial service is tomorrow in Colonie, NY. I left, under external links, a link to the Albany Times Union Obit. They allow a Legacy book feature for people to leave condolences. I know you admired his work so I felt I should at least tell you this. I also was sent a photo, from his Pastor, with permission to use it in his article. I'm not too sure how to do that. I used to know but my brain overflowed. Can I send you a link to the photo? BTW, I am very sorry for your loss if you also knew him or studied with him as I did. I'm trying to write something to be read tomorrow and get it to them in time. His Pastor also sent me a digital copy of the announcement of his death to his Parish. Leonard's conversion to Christianity is one of the biggest reasons he never made another film. All the scripts he wrote, beautifully written ones, had a redemptive theme to them. When I worked in Development, I passed two of my favorites to every producer I could, including Mel Gibson, but at that stage in his life, he just wanted murder & mayhem as did the others, hoping for the next Honey Moon Killers.

I'd like to see if we can add a paragraph about Leonard's teaching and it's impact. If I manage to wrote my eulogy and it's published eventually, it might be quotable.

Vulva at Vagina article[edit]

Hello, Scottandrewhutchins. What do you mean by this edit? How is it not clear that this particular vulva is shaven? Clicking on the image clearly shows that this is a shaven vulva. It is not a natural state (as though the woman doesn't need to shave), and it is not a child's vulva. Which is why I reverted you on that. If you plan on reverting me without discussion, I will be bringing in other editors on this matter. It's a pretty clear-cut case as far as I'm concerned. Flyer22 (talk) 22:08, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

As I stated on my talk page, "Oh, okay. If you click on the picture, you can see the times it was altered. And at one point, there is a hairy version. Sorry if you felt I was attacking you. With the version I saw, I just couldn't fathom how someone thought it wasn't shaven." Flyer22 (talk) 22:00, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of The Wizard of Ahh's[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Wizard of Ahh's has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Does not meet criteria of WP:NFILM. Google search brings up 95 "unique" results, none of which constitute a significant mention in any reliable sources.

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. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ... discospinster talk 04:32, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

You're invited to the New York Wiknic![edit]

You could be having this much fun! Seriously, consider coming.

This message is being sent to inform you of a Wikipedia picnic that is being held in your area next Saturday, June 25. From 1 to 8 PM or any time in between, join your fellow volunteers for a get together at Norman's Landscape (directions) in Manhattan's Central Park.

Take along your friends (newbies permitted), your family and other free culture enthusiasts! You may also want to pack a blanket, some water or perhaps even a frisbee.

Thanks for uploading File:Wizardofahhs.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

Joyce Drake[edit]

e    I'm undertaking work re Drake which IMO is the friendliest possible approach to your efforts, and it seems worthwhile trying to clarify that for your information.
   (Incidentally, FWIW it may help you to know that it is clearly not "[his] new book" in which she is mentioned, as he wrote -- per the blacklisted URL www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&tag=mozilla-20&index=blended&link_code=qs&field-keywords=%26%2334%3BThe%20Worst%20Album%20Covers%20in%20the%20World%26%2334%3B&sourceid=Mozilla-search -- a follow-on in 2005.)
   The rough-handling approach would be simple reversion of the Dab Joyce (singer) back to the Rdr (which survives to preserve the addressability via external links to the SAmerican singer). This is justified by the guideline WP:DabRL, part of the navigational doctrine that we Dab actual articles (and not potential ones).
   Instead, i intend to apply that only after applying the guideline against WP:incomplete disambiguations (which IMO is based on their dispensibility, and the difficulty of maintaining them). The difference that will make is that the edit history of your and others' reverted edits will be trackable within the Dab page's history, rather than only in the fairly obscure blind alley of the Rdr's history. Without forming any opinion about the notability of JD, i think it will be feasible to write at least a stub about her, and the presence of content from the (restored) Rdr's history in the history of the Dab may benefit an editor working on that.
   If that's confusing, drop me a note; i gotta run right now.
--Jerzyt 00:18 & 00:30, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

   (OK, that didn't save the first time, bcz of the bad URL, & i just found out 3 hours later. BTW, go see The Debt (2011 film), which is worth the while even if you've seen the Israeli original.)
   I'm back at the kbd for a while.
--Jerzyt 00:30, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
   I've done what i said i would; note in case of confusion that i'm not interested in writing a stub on JD.

L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz[edit]

This title is in the list of Adaptations of The Wizard of Oz#Future adaptations, with a 2012 release date. In the Template:Oz, there's a listing for "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (2011)" in the film section. Are these the same films? And do you think that the film is notable enough yet to belong in the template as an important forthcoming film? and, if the template film is different than the 2012 adaption, which film IS it? As you probably know, templates should generally not have nonlinked or redlinked subjects, unless its patently obvious they deserve an article. in this case, i dont even know what its referring to, let alone if its notable.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:10, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Video Communications, Inc.[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Video Communications, Inc. 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 an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

your new job[edit]

dude that's awesome congrats Nex Carnifex (talk) 09:17, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello Scottandrewhutchins. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Raj Amit Kumar, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. --Orange Mike | Talk 13:58, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Doctor Thirteen, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page House of Secrets (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.

Proposed deletion of Toshimitsu Tanaka[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Toshimitsu Tanaka has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. --DAJF (talk) 06:51, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

You are invited to the Great American Wiknic NYC in Brooklyn's green and lovely Prospect Park, on this Saturday June 22! We would love to see you there, so sign up and bring something fun for the potluck :) -- User:Pharos (talk)


I'm writing an academic article on people-participation in the 'production' of Shakespeare studies.

I noticed that you had recently provided some edits for the Wiki Shakespeare page, and wondered if I might ask you some questions about that?

This project is at a very early stage so I've not yet refined or worked out a fixed methodology. So the questions are also not yet fully formed. (And I am aware that you also contribute to many other pages.)

1. What motivates you specifically to contribute specifically to the Shakespeare page?

2. Do you consider that your skills in this regard are general, technical, or specialist?

3. Have you contributed to other Shakespeare-related pages?

3. What's you opinion on how the Shakespeare page has evolved over time?

4. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the Shakespeare page in terms of its current form and content?

5. Who would you say are the target readers for this page?

6. What have been the advantages and/or the frustrations of working on the Shakespeare page?

7. What are your reflections on the process of wiki-engagement in terms of connection, community and collaboration?

8. In your view, are there any other questions that ought to be considered?

Many thanks for taking the time to read this! TheoryofSexuality (talk) 17:30, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Citrusville for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Citrusville is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Citrusville until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. TTN (talk) 23:20, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Your edit-warring on Tea Party movement is unacceptable. The edit you reinserted is an extremely obvious NPOV violation (presenting a negative evaluative opinion as an undisputed fact and promoting it to the lead as if it were part of the definition), and it has no backing on the talk page. Please self-revert, or you will almost certainly face sanctions under the Arbitration Committee's WP:discretionary sanctions rules for this topic area. Fut.Perf. 17:18, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions (information on which is at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions) on any editor who is active on pages broadly related to Tea Party movement. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, satisfy any standard of behavior, or follow any normal editorial process. If you inappropriately edit pages relating to this topic, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The Committee's full decision can be read at the "Final decision" section of the decision page.

Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, with the appropriate sections of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Procedures, and with the case decision page before making any further edits to the pages in question. This notice will be logged on the case decision, pursuant to the conditions of the Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions system.

Contested edits[edit]

Please review I see that you've had some edits which other users may find objectionable and have created articles which you assert are "clearly notable" without appropriate sources. I suggest for your sake as well as other users' that you review WP:NOTABLE, WP:SOURCE, and maybe a few other bedrock policies and guidelines. There's no purpose in you putting in work to make articles and edits that will inevitably be deleted or reverted. I don't know you personally but language like the ones in these edit summaries will simply not be that welcoming to others, so it's going to cause friction. If you want to respond, please alert me on my talk. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:12, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
