Yeovilton & Cam Brook[edit]

Hi, Thanks for all your edits related to Cam Brook, however I reverted the edit to Yeovilton as the Cam Brook which you are linking is nowhere near Yeovilton & as I put in my edit summary this must be another Cam (which doesn't have an article yet).

sawbill[edit]

I'm shortly going to modify your edit to Red-breasted Merganser, but I thought I should explain why so you don't think it's edit-warring.

File permission problem with File:E J Saunderson.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:E J Saunderson.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. eh bien mon prince (talk) 03:36, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of 1793, an Act of Parliament for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article 1793, an Act of Parliament is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/1793, an Act of Parliament until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.Richard Harvey (talk) 19:09, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Nothing rude[edit]

Please allow an engineer to explain to you how it works, reminding you not to blindly revert, and to use technical-academic literature as refs, or for instance army field manuals, or demolition ref handbooks of old days, where these obsolete explosives are still explained in detail.

Edit warring[edit]

Tommy, you are edit warring now; two different users have reverted you; that's a sign that you need to go to the discussion board, per WP:BRD. Please revert your changes, or I will report you to the edit warring board and you will likely end up being blocked. --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 14:30, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at NDE 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.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring.

Moving/Renaming pages[edit]

Hello, Tommy Pinball. Bkonrad (aka Older ≠ wiser) mentioned this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Disambiguation, but it may have gotten lost in the specific discussion of NDE. In order to request that a page me renamed or moved (different labels for the same process), you can initiate a discussion on the article's talk page. Wikipedia:Requested moves describes the process. Happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 02:17, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

I might add to this that the answer you gave a new user at the Teahouse regarding moving a page (in this case, from AfC to mainspace) was entirely incorrect. Cutting and pasting is never the proper way to move a page, as that does not keep its history intact. Since everything here is under CC-BY-SA 3.0 License and GFDL, that makes a page moved by cut and paste a copyright violation. Even though they are available to reuse, Wikipedia articles are, after a fashion, copyrighted in that to freely use them, they must be attributed. Without the edit history, the creators of the article are not getting attribution.
Do you think you helped the new user at the Teahouse by giving her incorrect information? I am at a loss as to why you are there answering questions you do not know the answer to. The purpose of the Teahouse is to welcome and help new users. You are not a new user, but you apparently are not qualified to be a Teahouse host either. There is no shame in not knowing an answer, Tommy. However it is not helpful to confuse new editors by giving them wrong answers. John from Idegon (talk) 10:36, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

I don't understand.[edit]

I'm a disinterested editor echoing a complaint about behavior that strikes me as patently uncivil. I didn't raise the issue at ANI, and - as I have said a couple of times - I'm not sure it really warrants attention there at all. I am content to let the process run, or not. Why are you making this personal against me? Digging up an edit summary of mine, reverting a vandal in 2007. My goodness. JohnInDC (talk) 17:53, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the help at mark's Talk page. JohnInDC (talk) 13:40, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
I don't detect any meaningful improvement here at all. The fellow is very unpleasant, bordering on toxic, and I'm inclined to raise the issue with other editors again to see if he can't be brought to heel just a little bit. Your thoughts? Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 19:55, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours for vandalism and personal attacks. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.  Bishonen | talk 22:35, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Tommy Pinball (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsabuse filter logcreation logchange block settingsunblock)


Request reason:

I have no defence against a block for personal attacks, but I have not engaged in Vandalism: any addition, removal, or change of content, in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia. I request that the reasons for the block be amended to remove Vanadalism and the appropriate sanction for the personal attack be applied Tommy Pinball (talk) 22:48, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Unlike the American court system, we don't acquit due to technicalities. As you at least admit the personal attacks, there may be some hope yet. As for removing "vandalism" in your block log, that is technically impossible for any admin to do, so I haven't tried to determine if there is merit to that request. I am declining the unblock request as I don't see you presenting a clear path forward nor providing assurances the behavior won't be repeated. You are concerned about the details of the block rather than the reasons it was necessary. Dennis Brown |  | WER 23:45, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page for as long as you are blocked.

.

  • An uninvolved admin will review your unblock request, but I believe my recent warning that you removed made it clear what I meant by vandalism: your pasting AndyTheGrump's warning back on his own page. You repeated the same action with my own warning, hence the block for vandalism. You think the personal attack (there were links for all this stuff, again, in my warning) is all you've done wrong? No. I'll amend the block reason to read "disruptive editing" in place of "vandalism" if you like, since it's true that content wasn't involved. Well, content wasn't involved provided I AGF that the "Sammy" business at Osama bin Laden wasn't a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia, which is a bit of a stretch. 48 hours is pretty lenient in any case. Don't remove this comment, please, as it contains information for the reviewing admin. Bishonen | talk 23:02, 15 May 2014 (UTC).
Hey, I don't want to cancel your ego trip; if that means "Disruptive editing"...go for it, I'm just hoping that Due process operates and the vandal accusation is amended . Tommy Pinball (talk) 23:17, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh, if you'd like due process, you might as well wait for the reviewing admin, because that is due process where blocks are concerned. I freely offered to amend the block reason merely to cheer you up, because I know being blocked is a cheerless business. If it's possible for you to indicate whether you wish me to do that or not in a single civil straightforward non-roundabout sentence, I'm still willing to. If not, wait and see if anybody else will respond well to your request. Bishonen | talk 23:48, 15 May 2014 (UTC).
I would like to believe a block log represents a true and fair record of reasons and sanctions. If no one gives a toss about that sort of thing, then I don't either. Tommy Pinball (talk) 23:54, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
I might add that there is no justice at Wikipedia. We might throw around legal terms, tongue in cheek or simply because they are easy to understand, but we are not a court. It isn't about justice, it is about building an encyclopedia built on neutrality and verifiable facts. And block logs are approximations of a situation at best, the history of talk pages is more important. In the larger scheme, the blog log pales in comparison to your actual deeds. Dennis Brown |  | WER 23:56, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
WP:TLDNR Tommy Pinball (talk) 00:13, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Not sure if you mean my one paragraph, or that 2/3rds of a page essay, but both are significantly shorter than most articles. If that is too long, then this might not be the right hobby for you. Dennis Brown |  | WER 01:03, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
In other words, block logs just record a history of blocks, generally with a concise reason attached. That reason is not used as the sole reason for subsequent evaluations of an editor. There is no preclusive effect either. The block at issue here was simply for disruption in the end, and in that vein was rightly issued. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 01:39, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
