Grammar Correction Correction[edit]

Remember, you can use "because" at the beginning of the sentence if it begins a subordinate clause followed by an independent clause.

Venezuela's Multi-ethnic population[edit]

Is there any way that you could explain Jaam0121, that multi-ethnic differs from mestizo. Considering the fact in the 2011 census, the term mestizo(the meaning differs from country to country) was disbanded, and that Multi-racial pride was put into effect with the support of Hugo Chavez, the 50% of Venezuelans that labeled themselves multiethnic (Euro/Afro/Indi), should be displayed. I've tried to explain the best I could that past census numbers are meaningless now, and the new number should be listed instead. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.210.128.53 (talk) 01:29, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Stephen Levine (author), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stephen Levine (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Proposed deletion of Chahal clan[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Chahal clan has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non notable article, possibly directory, several of these article are just stub unsourced, an article (list) containing all these entries would suit better. All these articles were kept under the moniker that they would be eventually expanded, which clearly they did not.

While all constructive 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. Eduemoni↑talk↓ 14:26, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

How images work[edit]

Please take this in the good faith spirit as it is intended. Per Wikipedia:Images "Images are stored on the Wikipedia website or the partner Wikimedia Commons website. All free content is stored on "Commons" and images that have a copyright are stored on Wikipedia, under a fair use rationale. Also, images that are used on the Main Page have a local version to prevent vandalism from appearing. Editors can also choose to have a local version stored on Wikipedia." Embedding a Commons picture uses the exact same syntax as embedding a local picture. If a local picture exists under that name, it will take precedence, otherwise the Commons picture will be used. To the reader and most editors, there is no difference - same wikisyntax, same URL. The only way to see where a picture comes from is to go to the image link and see where it's hosted. With the picture we are discussing, there is no local copy (there's no need to as it's free from copyright) and any copies of it will come from Commons. Here is an example of an image stored locally [1]. No reference to Commons and no Commons logo in the upper right corner like this one: [2] --NeilN talk to me 22:55, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

You may wish to reformat your remark in the traditional WP:!VOTE format since clearly you're expressing not just comment, but an actual position. Typically, this would take the form:

  • Oppose. I would strongly oppose this. ...

I've already replied to your post, so technically, you shouldn't change a comment once it's been replied to. But since I'm the only one who's replied and I'm obviously okay with you making a change, please feel free to do it, if you like. Regards, Msnicki (talk) 20:42, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Not good faith? This from the editor who offers no evidence whatsoever and claims I'm "making this up as I go" even though I'm doing exactly what WP:COMMONNAME asks? WP:AGF, dude. Just because you're losing doesn't mean it's unfair. Msnicki (talk) 17:19, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Your response merely confirms to me your bad faith. trying to Americanize the encyclopedia in the way you are is simply unacceptable from my point of view. Commonname does not demand we Americanize international articles which is what you are claiming, then you have the cheek to tell British ppl you know better than us about British culture, doh. And what do you mean, I am losing? Its not about winning and losing, and even if it were by no stretch of the imagination are you "winning". The fact that you think it is about winning and losing again confirms to me you are not a responsible editor but acting in a bad faith way here. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 16:31, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Edit war on Fantasy defense[edit]

Hello. You appear to be involved in an edit war on Fantasy defense.

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 edit wars may be slow-moving, spanning weeks or months. Edit wars are not limited to 24 hours.

If you are unclear how to resolve a content dispute, please see dispute resolution. You 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.

If you feel your edits might qualify as one of the small list of exceptions, please apply them with caution and ensure that anyone looking at your edits will come to the same conclusion. If you are uncertain, seek clarification before continuing. Quite a few editors have found themselves blocked for misunderstanding and/or misapplying these exceptions. Often times, requesting page protection or a sockppuppet investigation is a much better course of action.

Continued edit warring on Fantasy defense or any other article may cause you to be blocked without further notice. As stated on the talk page, there is only 1 R in BRD. Toddst1 (talk) 22:40, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Err, I invoked WP:BLP which you need to answer as BLP is exempt from 3RR. I suggest you take it to the BLP noticeboard, if you engage in the behaviour you are accusing me of though be assured I will go to the BLP board rather than revert you again but I would also remind you that not only are you in exactly the same position as me re edit warring and 3RR but your case is worse as you havent invoked BLP, which is the only policy which can avoid 3RR when an editor believes a serious BLP violation is happening so please familiarize yourself with the policy. Were you to continue edit warring you would inevitably violate 3RR first, the maths is simple. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 23:07, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

The Blakes' picture[edit]

Hello, I am the user who added all these materials and corrections. I think the list page looks far more appealing and I am glad a few truly remarkable artists I admire and respect are there in their photogenic glory as well. It is a far more pretty page now for a day's work.. Although I used the photo of Bobby Blake and Flex Deon Blake together and added on the the Listing of actors, I too have some doubt about the photo Bobby&Flex2.jpg being really free, although the photographer (named as Ken Kavanagh or user: kenk8 claims he works at times for Black Inches magazine amongst other outlets and did take the photo and made it available through Wikipedia. Unfortunately his last edit was 24 June 2009, so it very unlikely he will know of the notice to respond to your note. It is a shame, but if the picture has to go, it has to go. In any case, many thanks for your keen interest and attention. Incidentally this photographer exists in real life and has lots of pictures of male models. So it is not surprising if he took the photo concerned. See: http://www.modelmayhem.com/797032 or https://www.facebook.com/ken.kavanagh.33 werldwayd (talk) 17:06, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Scatology‎ edit[edit]

I'm wondering why you removed (only) one of the three that were tagged with a cite request at the same time, especially when that one was the most recently added.

Now, I tried looking for a solid reliably-sourced cite (did you?), but gave up (perhaps I don't know the best place/way to find it). The best I could find was a law in New Zealand. --Musdan77 (talk) 22:42, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

The simple answer is cos I am focussing on pornography articles right now, that is the reason I edited that article. Good luck with the rest of the article though♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 16:29, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Image not working on article[edit]

This was a new thing to me as well, so now that I figured it out, I thought I'd share. If you look on the image page for File:Wiki-fellatio02.png, you'll see a notice that it can only be used on certain pages. Well, apparently they really enforce that, and it won't even show up on non-approved pages. To have an exception made, you have to post on MediaWiki talk:Bad image list (which I've already done for this one). RobinHood70 talk 11:38, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, i think we could arguably remove the other image anyway as it implies DT is a necessary part of A to M which it isnt♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 14:43, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
I hadn't thought of that, but you probably have a point. Assuming it gets approved, I'll re-make the change if you don't beat me to it. RobinHood70 talk 01:12, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, my typing isnt always brilliant, fortuantely my efforts arent being wasted though cos the encyclopedia is being improved. All this edit warring by you and Guy makes me feel very uneasy when all I am doing is trying to improve the articles by ensuring they are BLP compliant. It is not a lot to ask. Given all the accusations of wikipedia sexism IMO we absolutely need to get it right on BLP when dealing with this mysoginist subject (ie mysoginist in the world), that is not about censuring our porn coverage, it is about improving it♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 00:16, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Why do you not just nominate for deletion the article and let the community decide, then? Blanking a page and edit warring for keeping it blanked is disruptive and lacks sense, too. --Cavarrone 13:14, 3 August 2014 (UTC) I am waiting a reply before starting a WP:ANI thread, to be clear. --Cavarrone 13:21, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Because I dont want to see the article deleted, that was Andy's suggestion. I want to see the article as full of names as it was, each one referenced for BOTH porn star and mainstream film star. Having an article does not of itself indicate that any individual is a porn star or a film star and therefore we MUST source these in every case where somebody is alive, this is our BLP policy. I dont wish to see any reduction in our coverage of porn, what I want is to see our coverage being BLP complaint and that is all I want♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 13:24, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome to post on BLP noticeboard or ANI but be aware that having an article is not an indicator of being a porn star or a mainstream film styar and therefore I am within my rights to remove this material citing BLP before discussing it. On the other hand "Users who persistently or egregiously violate this policy (BLP) may be blocked from editing." this policy referring to "Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced – whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable – should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion." Being labelled a porn star IS contentious. Why do you think my argument is a joke?♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 13:27, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

How is it possible to collaborate with encyclopedia-writers who feel perfectly at liberty to pass their personal judgement on my faith just because it is not on their "Short list of approved religions"?[edit]

Thank you for your kind invitation extended to me to mentor me in the ways of wikipedia since you know how they work. There are indeed several curiosities I have encountered in this area that you may be able to help navigate.

How is it possible to collaborate with encyclopedia-writers who feel perfectly at liberty to pass their personal judgement on my faith just because it is not on their "Short list of approved religions"? --- and they spend up most of their energy attacking Rasta theology without sound logic or valid points, in an attempt to argue for excluding all mention of it from related wikipedia articles? But clearly these guys run the show on wikipedia, and they dance in contemptuous rings all around Jimbo's well-intended policies, since as anyone can see, they've got it fixed for the time being in 2014 so that if anyone dares call them out for their egregiousness it is only the messenger who gets shot and takes the fall, is threatened, and obligatorily accused of being the wrongdoer. So for the time being I will maintain a low profile while people like that are allowed to "rule the roost" until something is done about it that needs to be done from the top down. Thanks, Binghi Dad (talk) 14:52, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Porn and BLP". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 31 August 2014.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Kum Nye[edit]

Please do not engage in retaliatory reversion of my edits simply because we had a disagreement and I tagged one of your created pages for deletion. That's really unprofessional behavior. Ogress smash! 06:36, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Making silly claims is not helñpful. I have no issues with you having PRODed the Karuna article though I was somewhat taken aback when you showed your complete lack of understanding of PRODs (and you aint a newbie) by reverting my deletion of it. Then you come here with a load of bull about retaliation in order to justify edit warring. None of which is good or makes for a pleasant atmosphere here. Please dont come making wild accusations to my user page again. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 21:41, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I see someone else has also disagreed with your deletions at Kum Nye, making a complete mockery of your bad faith claim that I merely reverted you out of retaliation rather than because I was unhappy with the edits you were making to an article which has long been on my watchlist. You need to look at your own lack of professionalism, both in reverting a PROD removal with an outraged edit summary and in making nasty and false accusations against those who disagree with your edits. Both actions fall well below the standards of professionalism I always try to live up to while editing here. Retaliation would likely have involved reverting you on articles I have no interest in, but as Kum Nye is taught at Karuna this is obviously not the case. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 22:47, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
The only person reverting my edits is you. My "bad faith" claim was based on your edit "rv massive unexplained deletion by unreliable (ie PROD restoring) editor)". I might be a long-time editor but I haven't had a lot of conflicts with other editors.

Your removal of all of my edits is not constructive. If you object to something in particular, replace that section. I cleaned up quite a bit of that page; do you seriously object to my employment of the Wikipedia standard of the use of THL, the addition of {{bo}}, and the other bits?

Finally, your own indication that you are involved with Karuna raises my eyebrows. Ogress smash! 06:33, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

The talk page consensus is against you, I can see nothing of value in your edits having analysed every last one of them. Can you giver me one specific example of your cleaning up as I am struggling to find even one. wWhat with you ignoring talk page consensus and attacking me over the PROD you seem very interested in having a conflict for the sake of it with me. You need a talk page consensus for any changes you make. I was thanked for my revert of you last night by an editor who supported that edit on the talk page. Why do you think it is okay to defy multiple editors? And what are you talking about with your knowingly false assertion that I am involved with Karuna. I never said that. Just stop, I have warned you about your behaviour on my talk page and my patience is running out.

The meaning bit of your sentence is your original research. You removed a reliable source, obviously you have no interest in either verifiability or truth. At least I know who you are now. Why not try contributing to the Holt talk page rather than pretending that you know and that reliable sources can be picked and cosen entirely at your convenience.

If you read the source I provided you, it clearly states his agent confirming his death at 2:40 AM London time on Sunday. Rusted AutoParts 18:18, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
I know it does. But equally reliable sources say different. There is the problem. Why you think you need to treat me as a five year old cos you have failed to grasp the problem, though, is what I would rather talk about with you here. Until you are willing to talk about this do not come back to my user page. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 20:48, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Please share those "equally reliable sources". Using Google News, I rounded up every possible obituary for Holt, and only came up with 2 supporting your claim. And to be honest, I kind of find you acting like a child. "Do not come back to my user page"? We're discussing something. I found you to be unnecessarily hostile by throwing accusations of me reverting without discussing, something you saw fit to continue on with, as well as what's bordering on edit warring. So, please offer up your sources, and perhaps I'll see why you doubt the official DOD a bit better. Rusted AutoParts 21:02, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
You need to ask for sources on the talk page. This is not even an issue I brought there. You really are a very hostile editor, get off your arrogant high horse and stop treating me like I am some kind of fucking imbecile. And dont come back here, we have talk pages to discuss John Holt and Deaths in 2014. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 21:14, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Dude, be WP:CIVIL. "Get off your arrogant high horse"? "Stop treating me like a fucking imbecile"! I'm not treating you like an imbecile at all. You're the one who just immediately decided you didn't want to consider me cooperative. "Users like you make collaboration very hard". Buddy, I only learned this was a problem yesterday. You don't seem to want to accept another's viewpoint, you don't want to acknowledge you being hostile (not me) and most of all you don't seem interested in resolving the issue either. So please, I say this not to be mean, grow up. Stop taking everything so personally. And FYI, I've asked you to provide sources on Holt's talk page already. You don't seem to want to, or you realize that you are either lying or can't find any. Rusted AutoParts 21:23, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

You began this conversation saying you had to explain to me like to a five year old then you go on about WP:CIVIL, like who are you? Stop treating me like I am an idiot or five years old cos. As a result of the fact that you have been doing so I am not interested in your opinions on any subject, I would just like you to stop posting here in your usual aggressive manner. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 22:46, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Also if you were anythign like the experienced editor you are acting as being you would not send me a silly link tpo a policy page which I, as an experieinced editor, am already thoroughly familiar with. That kind of patronizing behaviour is more evidence of your treating me like a five year old who needs to "grow up", which you are not empowered to do on wikipedia.

Since this is just one more case in your porn/BLP campaign, I made a post[5] about it at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#SqueakBox and porn again. If you want to act righteous, you're obliged to do a minimum of homework. Blanking clearly referenced articles is not constructive.
Peter Isotalo 11:17, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
What campaign is that? Enforcing BLP on porn? What do you sugggest then, that we dont enforce BLP on porn, we just add the names of living ppl unsourced? We make that our standard to encoutrage new editors to do the same? Where is your evidecne for me acting righteously? Sounds like a personal attack to me. The names were not individually referenced, as you can see for yoursdelf, so I have no case to answer but you have a very serious case to answer for adding a BLP violation which has been challenged as such. If you want to edit here you are obligerd to obey the rules. Your other alternative is to change the BLP policy but the last time that hapened re porn the policy was tightened up not loosened. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 16:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
There's a detailed reply over at the AN/I thread. Besides that, my personal advice to you is: control yourself. I'm not going to moralize about acting rashly and carelessly. I've done so on several occasions and regretted it later. I hope I'm improving, though. But you seem to be escalating the manner in which you conduct this particular struggle, and it's needlessly disrupting articles. Mind you, it still is very much an open debate whether porn actors should be singled out in the manner. Blanking out Jenna Jameson's name from a film with her name in the title is the kind of action that undermines credibility.
Peter Isotalo 19:01, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
And you need to change the BLP policy re names in videos being a reliable source or not talk drivel. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 15:55, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Btw, do you realize how potentially condescending you are by equating a feminist project like Dirty Diaries with commercial porn? Not that it's particularly pleasant that you indirectly judge those who do it for a living, but you seem to be upping your game by involving feminist porn. The people involved in DD are ideological activists or artists and most of them identify as female, queer or intergender. Those who have used their real names have been deliberately public about this. As a fiftysomething English-speaking male, you should be a lot more wary of the concept of mansplaining.
Peter Isotalo 19:27, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Iff you think BLP is condescending change the policy. As you know nopthing about my thoughts on feminism you ned to shut your gob re that though, and keep it shut. The day your feminist credentials are better than mine perhaps you can open it again. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 15:55, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
The day that 'mansplaining' becomes an acceptable term to lodge at fellow editors is the day that WP:CIVILITY and WP:NPA has gone out the window. Tutelary (talk) 23:20, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Tutelary, in Dirty Diaries he was so eager to enforce his unreasonable standards of referencing that he simply zapped[6] the first names he saw. That they were specified once more under "Plot" escaped his attention because he couldn't be bothered to read more than five sentences of text. Users who don't read articles have no business editing them for accuracy. This has absolutely nothing to do with servicing either readers or protecting the integrity of living persons.
Peter Isotalo 08:55, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
What I mean by that is that it's a pandora box's effect. 'Mansplaining' becomes 'femsplaining' and 'cunt' becomes an acceptable word along with 'dick' and stuff like that. Sure we can force a dagger into his editing habits, but attempting to say that because he's a 50 year old male that he's not allowed to edit, or should be careful editing is making generalizations based on his gender and age. Not acceptable. Tutelary (talk) 19:06, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Peter, dont come to my talk page with a load of excuses as to why YOU are exempt from our BLP policy. Perhpas you can explain where i our BLP policy it says feminist poorn must be treated differently from commercial porn? I am not interested in tyopes of porn or even porn itself, I am interested in BLP. To suggest I cant edit cos I am male is sexist rubbish and any claims that my age would exclude me from editing needs to be met with well-deserved contempt. A do Peter's personal attacks. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 15:48, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
And the fact that you appear to think admins can override BLP shows you havent fully grasped the policy. IMO editors who dont fully understand or are unwilling to enforce BLP should not be editing articles that mention living people. Check my recent contribs for examples of such articles. ♫ SqueakBox talk contribs 16:32, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
  • SqueakBox, your extreme view of BLP is being soundly rejected at AN/I. I advise you to go there and actually explain the basis for that view rather than falling back on statements that you are simply enforcing policy. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:01, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
Fair enough. Verbal punches have been exchanged. If I phrase my concerns less brusquely, I believe you are manufacturing contention in relation to BLP info. You appear to be doing it specifically to articles that have to do with sexuality. Removing[7] perfectly innocuous, if whimsical, pop culture refs with notable names in bear (gay culture) implies you believe it's a concept that is somehow risqué. Which is pretty judgemental when you think about it. If this was genuinely about just names being named, you'd give the same treatment to all the uncited names in Tim Tolkien, Martin Gillingham and Jimmy Del Ray.
Other than that, you should really just follow Yngvadottir's advice above.

Topic ban[edit]

I apologise for being the bearer of bad news during the festive season, but I have closed this ANI discussion (permalink). The community consensus is that the material you were removing was not in violation of BLP, and that your refusal to give any ground or engage in discussion is disruptive. Thus, in accordance with community consensus, you are hereby banned from editing pornography-related articles. You are still welcome to engage on talk pages or project pages. You may appeal this sanction to AN or ANI, though I would suggest leaving a grace period of at least three months. If you require clarification of the scope of the topic ban, you are welcome to ask for clarification on my talk page or AN/ANI, but please note that violations will almost certainly result in blocks.

SqueakBox, I don't think my above post (nor the ANI thread) could have been much clearer that carrying on regardless was not an option. Your edits may actually have some merit, but you've completely ignored the topic ban and totally disregarded the community's concerns about your edits without even so much as acknowledging those concerns. Indeed, your only participation in that ANI thread was to insist that you were right. Thus, I have indefinitely blocked you. In this case indefinite is explicitly intended to mean "no fixed duration" rather than "infinite", and I sincerely hope that an amicable solution can found quickly. In order for you to be unblocked, it will be necessary for you to acknowledge that carrying on regardless is simply into an option, and you need to first edit something other than pornography articles for a while and second dramatically change your attitude to take a less combative, confrontational and much more communicative approach to editing in general and BLP enforcement in particular. Further, I am extremely disappointed that your total disregard came not only almost immediately after the topic ban was imposed, but while another editor was appealing to me on your behalf and I was listening to them and considering loosening the restriction. This comment contains a summary of my thoughts on the issue which you may wish to read. You can of course use the {{unblock}} template to request another admin review this block, and I will make myself available if you wish to discuss the issue further.

Unblocked[edit]

After our discussion by email, I have unblocked you provided that you stick to the terms of your topic ban on pornography articles. For the avoidance of doubt, you may not enforce BLP on such articles. You may, however, take part in talk page or project space discussions related to the topic, and you may appeal the topic ban to AN at any time. Note that you will be indefinitely blocked again if you further violate the topic ban. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 13:23, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
