Metallica discography[edit]

Hey, Thomas. The style guideline WP:DISCOGSTYLE states that there should be no more than ten charts used in a table in a discography, primarily to avoid the tables becoming too cluttered and easier to navigate. As Metallica's work has charted no better in Denmark than the other territories already found in the table, I've removed the (perfectly legitimate as a chart in the first place) Danish positions which you have, in perfectly good faith, attempted to add. I hope that is a sufficient explanation: if you want to ask me anything else, contact me on my talk page. Have a good day! I Am RufusConversation is a beautiful thing. 17:42, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps I should have explained myself a little more. The choice of charts isn't the problem with the edits you're making: Austria and France are perfectly reliable charts, but my same argument applies in regards to removing them – please stick to ten charts only. I Am RufusConversation is a beautiful thing. 19:23, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Hi, I have reverted this good faith edit: [1] because the album did not chart in Finland. See http://finnishcharts.com/showitem.asp?interpret=Suzi+Quatro&titel=Suzi+Quatro&cat=a. I think that you may have got Finland confused with Norway. Peter Loader (talk) 22:46, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Metal Guru may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"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.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Disambiguation link notification for December 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Marion Rung, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Stamp (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.

December 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Barack Obama. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block.
The edits in question are: [2], [3] JoeSperrazza (talk) 19:33, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Please don't do this. WP:UKNATIONALS is an essay that may help you to understand why it is considered unhelpful. --John (talk) 20:24, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Overlinking and Nationality changes[edit]

Hi Thomas, I see you are a relative newcomer on here so first welcome to wikipedia. There are various guidelines, various group projects, and a lot of different editors.

I will first deal with editors and the human factor on here. Editors may read the same guideline differently, this can come from several reasons- bias from our own experience, a misreading of what is typed (may be as opposed to maybe) or misunderstanding of their application. We use talkpages and discussion to ask for clarity if we dont understand something- if we have edited and being reverted or have the edit undone this is refered to as WP:BRD be bold, revert and discuss. Another reason for discussion is to garner concensus, consensus is not a form of voting but editors will discuss the merits or remits of an edit or guideline and the outcome that is accepted or reached is that which is deem to be neutral, contain clarity and follow the guidelines and principles of the encyclopedia.

I came across your edits on my watchlist today, and I check your contribution history and see you have made some edits in a similar manner that have been reverted. While you may feel it is more accurate to describe places as [[Town]], [[Country]], [[State]] in general the view is that this maybe considered overlinking. There is a link in the title above, and this is its talkpage. If you have any questions a post on the talkpage will lead to answers and clarity.

Changing nationalities with in UK-centric articles could be seen as pointy. Generally consensus should be made prior to altering these. Some are not what you or I would deem correct or appropriate (in my case One Direction are a British band- thats where they come from and Horan hasnt presented any thing for Irish to be included, but consensus says English-Irish) but consensus is different and we are obliged by being neutral to edit accordingly.

I hope this helps you on here. Enjoy your editing on here. Murry1975 (talk) 12:36, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

I have reverted you in several articles where you made nationality-related changes for reasons that were not readily apparent. Bob Dylan's ancestry, for instance, has been the matter of some interest and discussion (see the talk page) and I think your change was rather hasty. I think you need to provide more sources, or at least better edit summaries that give the reasons for your changes.Brianyoumans (talk) 03:39, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
