Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, TRBP, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, like Jeffrey scaperrotta, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles. See the Article Wizard.

Thank you.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of Jeffrey scaperrotta[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Jeffrey scaperrotta 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 a person or group of people, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 07:42, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Policies[edit]

If you're going to revert changes based on policy, you need to cite reasons based on policy. The content you're restoring is in violation of WP:N and WP:INDISCRIMINATE. Articles require notability to be established. -- James26 (talk) 05:39, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

To give a second opinion, James26 is right that the community expects article topics to show real-world notability, which isn't currently shown in the One Tree Hill character articles I looked at.
It's not impossible to do that; we have for example articles on Kurt Hummel and Artie Abrams. You'll note though the amount of references and the strong real-world reference in those articles. If there is little real-world relevance and the articles focus on character development, then the community usually agrees to shorten and merge them into one character list article.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask! Amalthea 08:42, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Fußball-Bundesliga tables[edit]

I'm curious - why do you unnecessarily add lines to all league tables? --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 13:14, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Please be aware that these tables follow a very general concept which was applied to thousands of league season articles (see 2009–10 Premier League, 2007–08 La Liga or 1999–2000 Serie A for examples) throughout Wikipedia a few years ago, with almost no problems. So, please stop adding needless additional grid lines to the Bundesliga tables. If you do not agree with the layout, please discuss it at WT:FSATF before doing any more changes. --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 13:36, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
It's alright. Hope the stuff above did not sound too harsh, that was clearly not intended. If it did, sorry for that. :-) --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 13:46, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Template "Imdb name" vs "Imdb"[edit]

Please do not change the invocation of the Template:Imdb name to {{Imdb}} as you did in this edit of the article for Cornelia Froboess. The former is the correct name, the latter is a REDIRECT to the former. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:55, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

July 2010[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For subjects exclusively related to Britain (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to other English-speaking countries, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the appropriate variety of English used there. If it is an international topic, use the same form of English the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to the other, even if you don't normally use the version the article is written in. Respect other people's versions of English. They in turn should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. If you have any queries about all this, you can ask me on my talk page or you can visit the help desk. Thank you. Shadowjams (talk) 09:36, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Logan Lerman[edit]

I have reverted your edit[1] to the Logan Lerman article. The edit added unsourced material information - per WP:V requirements a reliable source needs to be provided for this kind of information. Note that even IMDB does not yet list any information about the Percy Jackson sequel, and it certainly does not mention the name or the year of the sequel. Nsk92 (talk) 13:04, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Huggle[edit]

Hey there. I saw that you left a question on my talk page asking about Huggle, citing that you had recieved an error message when you attempted to access the program. The reason this message is appearing is because you have not been granted rollback rights by an administrator, which are required before you can use Huggle. Before you can use Huggle, you must apply for these rights here. However, before you apply for said rights I strongly reccomend you do some work on Twinkle, a program similar to Huggle, but in some cases not as powerful. Importantly, before you use Twinkle, or apply for rollback rights, you must make sure you are familair with Wikipedia's vandalism policies, since you will likely not be granted rollback rights. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on my talk page. Good luck! WackyWace converse | contribs 09:31, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Edits[edit]

Please do not "disambiguate" links on User:RussBot/DPL/from portals. The purpose of the page is to list links to disambiguation pages; "fixing" the links defeats the purpose. It would be more appropriate to delete entries entirely if the portal page in question has been revised. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 11:14, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Four clubs?[edit]

You support four English league clubs? What do you do if Chelsea play Hull or Newcastle play Sheffield United? Hope for a draw? – PeeJay 00:07, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Erm, OK. I was only asking. No need to get snippy. – PeeJay 11:20, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Re:Disambiguation[edit]

My apologies - put it down to having been a long hard day :) Grutness...wha? 11:19, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

September 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to User:Trafford09/Leah McSweeney. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Trafford09 (talk) 18:04, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Re wp:ES#Always provide an edit summary[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Cueball Carmichael. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page.

Wikipedia relies on wp:consensus, and our all adhering to its guidelines.

One such is wp:ES#Always provide an edit summary. Please adhere to it, or state why the consensus doesn't apply in your case. Trafford09 (talk) 06:53, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for discussing this (on my talk page).
I fully accept that your mission to avoid disambiguation pages is a highly-commendable one.
However, if you do 200 edits a day, to different articles, and each article is on one editor's Watchlist, that's 200 editors a day who (should) feel they should check your edit.
That being so, don't you think you could put (say) wp:DAB as the summary?
It's not a lot to type, and you could have it (or a lengthier version even) as fixed text on your user page, to copy & paste?
Over to you. Regards, Trafford09 (talk) 11:32, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that compromise. I altered your fixed text - are you ok with that? It means the reader(s) will see a clickable blue link, in the article's History. Best wishes, Trafford09 (talk) 12:01, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Looking great now - here - nice one :) Happy editing. Trafford09 (talk) 12:12, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Reminder[edit]

By the way, in case you were unaware, to avoid accidentally leaving edit summaries blank, you can select "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary" on the Editing tab of your user preferences. Regards, Trafford09 (talk) 11:23, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

TOTD[edit]

Tip of the day...


Please summarize your work using the Edit summary box

If you make anything other than a minor edit to an article, it helps others if you fill in the edit summary. Edit summaries are visible in the page history, watchlists, and on Recent changes, so they help others users keep track of what's happening to a page. If you use section editing, the summary box is filled in with the section heading by default (in gray text), which you can follow with more detail. You also can put links to articles in the edit summary. Just put double brackets around [[the article title]] like you would normally. The summary is limited to 200 characters, so many people use common abbreviations, such as sp for correcting spelling mistakes.

Anderson Field (Nevada)[edit]

Please be careful when you fix dabs as you did in this article. You pointed the article to the wrong airport, I think. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:44, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Also, your changes to AEX do not follow the guidelines for dab pages where piping of links is generally not permitted since the real link should be displayed so that it can be copied directly. Vegaswikian (talk) 18:47, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Fran Allison[edit]

TRBP: You recently made a revision on the Wikepedia page regarding Fran Allison. I am curious as to your knowledge with her. I have a family connection and need to fill in some blanks if you can help —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.84.1.250 (talk) 23:11, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I write and edit a lot of[edit]

an award I occasionally pass out


sculptor and sculpture articles and my watchlist has been ringing off the hook with a bunch of solid, cleanup edits that you have been doing. For that upi are awareded the Seldom coveted Thumbs Up Award.
Wear it with pride, or if you do decide to toss it out, please re-cycle. EInar aka Carptrash (talk) 18:34, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Luka Kovac's wife and daughter[edit]

Regarding your edit reversing the names of Luka's wife and daughter, based on "City of Mercy" -- the names in that episode were a continuity error. Beginning from the four-episode "Bishop" arc in season seven (see "The Crossing" in particular) they were as listed in the infobox, and are considered canon, and thereby what should be in the article and infobox. Writers make mistakes when they don't check their past episodes, and I gather even GV couldn't persuade them that they had it wrong. As a result, I've reverted the edit. Drmargi (talk) 18:41, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

No sweat on the edit. Thanks for being cool about it. It was a fairly dumb mistake on the show's part. Drmargi (talk) 19:55, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
