Matt the knife[edit]

You need to be more careful what you're removing. Citations don't have to contain web links. You removed this citation because it went to the home page[1], yet [2] hpere it is. I'm going to give you a chance to revert the damage you've done to the article, but if you don't, then I'll revert all your edits, as its quite obvious you didn't take the appropriate care in removing those sections.--Crossmr (talk) 05:06, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Wrote on your talk page. Sweetfornow (talk) 10:05, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if the links go to the home page. Wikipedia does not require all citations be readily accessible on the internet. Many things are sourced from books, academic papers, etc which are not available online. You blindly went through and deleted content without even spending 30 seconds to check the site to see if the articles existed there. The names, dates and authors of the articles were provided, that is sufficient to establish the reference. You should not remove referenced content from articles because there is an error in the reference. Take 30 seconds and check them. That is all it took on google to verify the existence of the some of the references you removed.--Crossmr (talk) 10:14, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
just because a link is broken doesn't mean the reference is bad. You could have updated many of those references quickly and easily--Crossmr (talk) 12

What was wrong with my paragraph? Can you give me a specific reason why my paragraph was edited? Did I write anything bad about him? No, I didn't. The paragraph was straight and on the point. I also included sources as well so it's not I violated any Wikipedia rules.

  • Seems like a rather poor block to me. I've left a note for the blocking admin. --auburnpilot talk 03:59, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Irrelevant I suppose, as the block has expired. --auburnpilot talk 04:05, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
Yep, I agree, and I didn't act on the block because it had expired or was about to expire anyway. Enigmamsg 04:29, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
    • I'm sorry as three admins who I respect have said they disagreed with my block, so I have to accept that it was maybe on the harsh side. However, it is important to err on the side of caution when dealing with matters relating to living people. Please bear this in mind in the future. Discussing in talk is always preferable to edit-warring in any case. Best wishes, --John (talk) 05:14, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

2010 FIFA World Cup disciplinary record[edit]

I've reverted your edits to this page as they broke both the references and the page. I'm not sure exactly what you were trying to do but if you were trying to change the three references into one then this is incorrect as they each point to a different page on FIFA's website even if each page has the same title. Dpmuk (talk) 00:49, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Plain Jane article[edit]

Hello, Sweetfornow. I added this back (but in a different way) because it also fits the definition of a plain jane, stereotype or not. As I'm sure you know, not all people who are called Plain Janes are average-looking...face-wise. If anything, that is the bigger stereotype. There are beautiful women out there who have their beauty downplayed by looking frumpy. Flyer22 (talk) 21:03, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

I replied on my talk page. And I thank you for not edit-warring with me. Flyer22 (talk) 21:27, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Status icon[edit]

I was wondering on how you get the status icon on top of your page. You have an icon that says "Status:Online/Offline" on top of your user page and talk page. I was wondering how to get that icon on my page. ♥ SweetfornowTalk Contribs 17:46, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

The only thing that you need is add {{Statustop|offset=1 (Note: You can change this number)}} and create User:Sweetfornow/Status. On it you can add online, offline, busy, around or sleeping, and automatically your status will be visible. TbhotchTalk C. 17:52, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Attack pages[edit]

Hi. When you get a page like "Maya biring" just now which is a personal attack, there is a better tag to use than {{db-person}}. The thing to do is, first blank the page to get the attack off the screen, then tag it with {{db-attack}} (or {{db-atk}} or {{db-g10}} which come to the same thing). That puts it in a high-priority queue for admin attention, and also generates a suitably fierce warning for you to copy to the attacker's talk page. Keep up the good work on New Page Patrol - it needs all the eyes it can get! Regards, JohnCD (talk) 19:19, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Speculative evolution[edit]

I don't believe your {{prod}} on Speculative evolution is valid for two reasons:

  1. You cite WP:SCI, but that proposed guideline was rejected, so it isn't really a valid citation
  2. While the topic of speculative evolution hardly qualifies as a science, it does appear to have a fair number of adherents and would qualify under the umbrella of pseudo-science, of which Wikipedia has lots of articles (see Astrology, alchemy, etc). As long as the topic is handled properly, with reliable citations (which might be the biggest problem) there might be something to be made out of this topic.

AfC[edit]

Hi; thanks for your help in AfC.

When you decline/hold articles, there's no need to add a new template, which keeps it in the pending submissions category if the old one is still there: see you edit and mine (and please leave the "other parameters" intact, not use the words "other parameters". You might want to try a script, User:Tim Song/afchelper4.js. Thanks! fetch·comms 21:40, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Callware[edit]

Greetings,

I saw your message on this, and I'm wondering if you can help me.

There are numerous articles from Business Line, PR Newswire, Network Magazine, and some awards given from PC Magazine, Network Computing Magazine, etc, but I thought they might add extraneous noise to this article. I tried to pick the most relevant information, that being the link to the US Department of Defense accreditation site, as well as the historical link to Infoworld. That represents two 3rd party citations, but as noted, I could come up with more.

What do you think would be the most helpful in this case?

Thanks for your help

Redneck Shop[edit]

Hey, i was wondering if the Redneck Shop would be considered a "white supremacist group in the United States", i don't think it would be because it is a store. Chainsawfan1 (talk) 22:54, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

I was also thinking of the same thing for Resistance Records, as it is not a group, but a record label. Chainsawfan1 (talk) 23:43, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

But besides those two (Redneck Shop and Resistance Records), the groups mentioned in "white supremacist groups in the United States" all fit as racist white groups in the US, though i'm on the fence about Project Megiddo, as it was a FBI project on radical groups in the US, not just white racist groups. What's your take on the subject? Chainsawfan1 (talk) 23:56, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Problem has been resolved, thanks. Chainsawfan1 (talk) 06:27, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

My Mommy Manual ineligible for proposed deletion[edit]

I have removed the {{prod}} tag from My Mommy Manual, which you proposed for deletion, because its deletion has previously been contested or viewed as controversial. Proposed deletion is not for controversial deletions. For this reason, it is best not to propose deletion of articles that have previously been de-{{prod}}ed, even by the article creator, or which have previously been listed on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. If you still think the article should be deleted, please don't add the {{prod}} template back to the article, but feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! —C.Fred (talk) 03:35, 14 August 2010 (UTC)

hello[edit]

Why did you not list the so called copyright violation from pinhole camera for deletion??? If you didn't notice it's largely the same as http://www.vistaview360.com/photography/pinhole_camera.htm195.18.216.204 (talk) 22:16, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

I copied the text from the article pinhole camera. If you believe that the article pinhole camera is a copyright violation, which it is if the text that you deleted is a copyright violation, then you need to list pinhole camera for deletion. 195.18.216.204 (talk) 22:36, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

fyi[edit]

I undid your edit here. Inforelay didn't take the original decline off the top, but the resub was not a copyvio. She's been in correspondence with me about fixing the article, so I though I'd just let you know why I undid your edit. Cheers, sonia 03:47, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Emirati_Association[edit]

Dear Sweet xx,

There was a page created: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Emirati_Association

This page is for a Not-for-Profit Organization committed to improving the relationship between two countries.. it is most certainly not spam. It is not selling or promoting any products.

Furthermore the page template is based on several other near identical organizations including

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Industry_Group

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lowy_Institute_for_International_Policy

However, an editor has marked the page as spam and marked it for speedy deletion... wondering if you could help us with editing it to Wikipedia's guidelines to avoid deletion?

Many thanks for your help!

Signing edits[edit]

Hey, I've been trying to find the answer to this in the help file but I can't find anything. Would you happen to know how I can go back and sign previous edits I've made for Wolfblade (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfblade)? And do I sign it in the actual 'what I've edited' box or up on the page? Angela.kelsey (talk) 09:33, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

About Article"list of Punjabi nobel laureates"[edit]

Sweet xx,why you are prejudiced about article,if u say article should not be on ethnic group why do not you DO SOMETHING FOR ARTICLE LIKE"LIST OF BLACK NOBEL LAUREATES"do not take Punjabi as narrow meaning these are people scattered in indian subcontinent like Tamils,Bengalis.Shemaroo (talk) 17:32, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Before He Cheats[edit]

Sweet xx, I simply edited the structure of the information. I wasn't deleting anything; I was simply moving it to a different category on the page. There is a category titled "Charts" and "Chart Performance" which is the exact same thing. The given information under the "Chart Performance" category can be put into the "Charts" tab, and it will collectively become a single category, rather than having two categories of the same use. No need to block my editing when I'm not doing anything wrong. I wasn't deleting anything. I was merging related information together. Undrwood9098 (talk) 23:40, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

AFC-Logo.png

Hi, and welcome to WikiProject Articles for creation! We are a group of editors who work together on the Articles for creation and Images for upload pages.

A few tips that you might find helpful:

  • Please take time to fully read the reviewers' instructions before reviewing submissions.
  • The project's discussion board is the best place to ask for help or advice. You might like to watchlist this page, and you are encouraged to take part in any discussion that comes up.

Once again, welcome to the project. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 16:48, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

Edit summaries[edit]

Was this edit intentional? In future – and except in the case of repairing obvious vandalism – I ask that you please take care not to undo other editors' edits without an edit summary. (Are you using some sort of automated tool to follow the recent changes feed? If so, please be careful.) Particularly where experienced editors (and admins) make an edit accompanied by a clear, explanatory edit summary, it's not a good idea to 'undo' without comment or discussion.

Physical attractiveness article[edit]

Hello, Sweet xx. How is John Wiley & Sons (interscience.wiley.com) an unreliable source? You removed them from the Skin tone section talking about physical attractiveness in women. I added them back. They are used throughout Wikipedia as a reliable source for a number of topics. Further, your redesign of that section made it too POV toward lighter skin being more desired, when before...it had a pretty nice balance talking about how tanned skin is often preferred by Americans. I balanced that section back out, and will add additional sources later talking about tanned skinned being more desirable. Flyer22 (talk) 21:06, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
