July 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to National Security Agency may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Polygraph video[edit]

Hi! Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia!

I found this edit and I have reverted it

  • 1. The video works, but in the settings you have to click "WEBM source" and change it to either WEBM option or OGG - However I do prefer that it works from the get-go so I can look into that
  • 2. The video is the object of discussion so by definition it is necessary (otherwise people will ask "where can I see it?")
  • 3. As the video contains some copyrighted material, it has a fair use rationale that requires it being used in an article, or else it gets deleted - It is also used in Polygraph#United States but removing it from one article removes a "protection" against the file being deleted

Dia[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Dia a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Dia (disambiguation). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. 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.

Disambiguation link notification for August 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Defense Intelligence Agency, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page FOIA (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.

Disambiguation link notification for September 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited DIA in popular culture, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page NCIS (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Dia[edit]

Your requested move of the Dia disambiguation page was unsucessful. Please do not attempt to subvert that consensus by copying and pasting the pages. olderwiser 02:02, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Once again -- your requested move was unsuccessful. If you persist in attempting to move it by copying and pasting the content, you may be blocked from editing. olderwiser 10:32, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Patrick Hughes (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.

October 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Besieged. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to Defense Intelligence Agency, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. besiegedtalk 19:44, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Defense Intelligence Agency 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. Dpmuk (talk) 21:33, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

As an aside to the above I actually think your current version is a reasonably fair representation of the source and much more WP:NPOV although I don't feel strongly about either current version. I also wonder if it's too much detail for a summary that links to the main article. Dpmuk (talk) 21:33, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

DCS[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give DCS a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into DCS (disambiguation). This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. 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 (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). 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.

Apart from being a cut/paste move I am disputing whether Defense Clandestine Service is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC for DCS. Please do not move the contents again but start a proper discussion using the WP:RM process. Tassedethe (talk) 13:44, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
