AJM's advice to new editors[edit]

  • Look at the article to see how it is laid out. The Table of Contents is the best place to start.
  • Read the article to see if what you want to add or remove is appropriate, necessary, or adds value.
  • Search for the right place to put it.
  • Check Use the "Show Preview" to make sure that what you have done is appropriate and correct.
  • Discuss any change about which you are uncertain, by placing your proposed text, or just a suggestion, on the talk page. Someone who watches the article will usually answer in a day or so. You can monitor this by clicking the watch tag at the top of the page.
  • Be aware
    • that an addition inserted between two sentences or paragraphs that are linked in meaning can turn the existent paragraphs into nonsense.
    • that a lengthy addition or the creation of a new sub-section can add inappropriate weight to just one aspect of a topic.

When adding images

  • Look to see if the subject of your image is already covered. Don't duplicate subject matter already present. Don't delete a picture just to put in your own, unless your picture is demonstrably better for the purpose. The caption and nearby text will help you decide this.
  • Search through the text to find the right place for your image. If you wish it to appear adjacent to a particular body of text, then place it above the text, not at the end of it.
  • Look to see how the pictures are formatted. If they are all small thumbnails, do not size your picture at 300 px. The pictures in the article may have been carefully selected to follow a certain visual style e.g. every picture may be horizontal, because of restricted space; every picture might be taken from a certain source, so they all match. Make sure your picture looks appropriate in the context of the article.
  • Read the captions of existent pictures, to see how yours should fit in.
  • Check the formatting, placement, context and caption before you leave the page by using the Show preview function, and again after saving.
  • Discuss If your picture seems to fill a real identifiable need in the article, but doesn't fit well, because of formatting or some other constraint, then put it on the talk page and discuss, before adding.
  • Be aware that adding a picture may substantially change the layout of the article. Your addition may push another picture out of its relevant section or cause some other formatting problem.
  • Edit before adding. Some pictures will look much better, or fit an article more appropriately if they are cropped to show the relevant subject.

Stop messing up the Grand Prix articles[edit]

Stop messing up the Grand Prix articles. The history of these articles have to be structured in a way that goes through history. What you're doing- organizing the articles in such a way that it lists the circuits used doesn't work, and the extent of the mess you've made is really quite impressive, I must say. Some of the titles you've used with nearly all of the individual years listed are also way way way too long as well. So you've been warned- if you do anything like that again, I'm reporting you. Try me, and you'll find out what happens. --Hmdwgf (talk) 15:37, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm really impressed with the quality of your message. Cordially. Trackteur (talk) 15:42, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, you're so funny. Hilarious- a genuine gut-buster. I was going to post this section before you posted that sad attempt at wit, but edit conflicts, oh how they annoy: Another thing- I believe you have tampered with these articles in a similar manner some time ago. That's right- I remember that. No one cares what you think these articles should be or what your feelings are towards editing- because they are not good or constructive edits. Once again- you've been warned. --Hmdwgf (talk) 15:51, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
I will still not respond to your nonsense. Cordially. Trackteur (talk) 15:59, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Personal issues aside, you just did, and I don't want a response from you, just don't do anything like that again. This kind of thing has happened before in a similar manner and it's not appreciated. And you won't be able to respond to any person's nonsense if you keep doing the wrong things- you'll be banned. I hope you're gracious that I'm telling you that- the other edits you've done to other articles are constructive and good- unlike many, many other users. Also- try to keep your same edits to a minimum- you have a tendency to make a lot of edits to the same article in a small amount of time. --Hmdwgf (talk) 16:12, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Please stop conducting an edit war. It can get you suspended from Wikipedia. If you have an issue bring it up on the relevant talk page, like Talk:Italian Grand Prix and discuss it. Please do not try and force your edit into the article, the back and forth can go on foever and the editors just get banned. Talk it up on the talk page. It is what it is there for. --Falcadore (talk) 13:25, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello, the discussion is open. Cordially. Trackteur (talk) 14:43, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
It's hard for anyone to believe those intentions of yours when you were still edit-warring with Falcadore. That's a very frowned-upon practice not just on this wiki, but on any wiki on the internet. --Hmdwgf (talk) 15:30, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

See that Wikipedia:Help_desk#Thinkers_pictures_on_main_subjects_pageLbertolotti (talk) 20:14, 27 March 2014 (UTC) Please stop re-adding the portraits of people, to Operations management as they add nothing whatsoever to the readers understanding of the subject, as has already been explained to you at the Help Desk. Thanks - Arjayay (talk) 16:46, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

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 Operations management. 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.

Don't keep adding the pictures without discussing it. Several editors have agreed that they are not needed in the article. We don't need pictures of every person mentioned in the article. Meters (talk) 17:21, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

I think they have a point, it's better to focus on expanding the history section with more detailed information and cover more historical milestones, and then when the history section is filled with more text, we can consider re-adding some thinkers pictures, so that the operations management article can become more similar in format to general subject articles like economics or sociology.Lbertolotti (talk) 21:21, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Automotive industry, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sell (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at United Kingdom. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Your recent editing history at United Kingdom 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. NebY (talk) 13:48, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Hill of Tara[edit]

Just because the article is entitled Hill of Tara, doesn't mean that all links to it must be worded that way. piped links to preserve the readability and flow of a sentence are perfectly acceptable. If it is to be worded "Hill of Tara" it at least needs a definite article, but in the context of the article "Tara" is better. The article is titled "Hill of Tara" to distinguish it from other things called Tara, but the settlement is usually referred to simply as "Tara". --Nicknack009 (talk) 16:51, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Edit summary[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please make sure to include an edit summary with every edit. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Manual of Style[edit]

I would ask that you please read the Manual of Style that articles need to conform to. Your edits to Prohibition have unfortunately been in contravention to the MOS, which in itself if fine, but you keep reverting other editors when they restore the MOS versions, which is not so fine. Additionally please use edit summaries on all your edits as per Edit summaries, almost none of your edits leave a summary forcing people to go into them to figure out what has changed when a summary would allow people to know what the edit was about.

Edit warring[edit]

Hi! I see you're fairly new here. Everyone knows it's hard to get started, so well done for sticking at it. I'd like to draw your attention to WP:BRD. If you make a change to an article and it is reverted, your next step is not to make the same edit again; that's called edit-warring, is generally frowned on, and if kept up can lead to trouble. Instead you can start a discussion on the talk page of the article and try to persuade other editors that the edit you want to make is a helpful one. If an editor has explained in an edit summary why your edit is not a good one, as I did at Florence, you can quote that as a starting-point for the discussion, and show why it is wrong. In that particular case, I've started the discussion for you, though it really isn't important enough to be worth discussing. Anyway, please take BRD to heart. Good luck, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:25, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Thank you for the advice now that you have opened the discussion page of this article, expect further notice as you required. It's me who proceeded to rename the article Uffizi in Uffizi Gallery. Thank you wait until the end of the discussion before undo a new time this last change. Good luck to you too. Trackteur (talk) 07:23, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that and undid it. I suggest you wait until you have a lot more experience here before you move any more high-profile pages without discussion, as you did with both Uffizi and Crimea. You can request moves at WP:Requested moves, and try to persuade other editors that your ideas are correct; you'd need to make a strong case for either of those two. There's a lot of advice to you on this page; please try to take notice of some of it. You don't want to get to the point where your edits are seen as WP:Disruptive. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 08:43, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Michelangelo: David[edit]

Please don't move pics that are above the line. It is done in order to fit the pic in, without creating a huge break underneath the image, or pushing a major heading out of position. If you are editing on a vertical screen, you may not be aware of the layout problems that occur on wide screens. I'm very particular about layout, and generally try to avoid gaps. It all becomes mor difficult when the image, like the statue of David, is tall. There is a problem which the MOS for picture layout does not address, because the instructions are devised very simplistically for absolute beginners. Amandajm (talk) 10:49, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Excuse me, I do not have a wide screen and I moved just to put it in front of the relevant section. Trackteur (talk) 10:55, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
When positioned under the relevant heading, it has the effect of causing a great big gap in the text. That is the reason it is above the content. It is a matter of being pragmatic. It can't be optimised for a vertical screen, so it is made to work as well as possible on an ordinary laptop. Amandajm (talk) 11:03, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I have asked you repeatedly to ease up in your editing of that page - several of your edits have been ungrammatical, or incorrect, or unconstructive, and have had to be reverted. By way of example, we have this ungrammatical addition; this clumsy construction, this edit, which removed an important modifier, these edits, in which you mis-identified the role of these persons at the time of the actions being discussed and - this edit again restoring the incorrect information. Your recent edits are not sound, and you need to stop. JohnInDC (talk) 16:55, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
More generally, you have only been an editor since March, yet in that short time have amassed a pretty substantial collection of warnings and critical comments here on your Talk page. If you want to be an active and capable editor, I strongly suggest that you slow down in your editing, take the time to read up on various Wikipedia policies and procedures (several of which have already been pointed out to you), and learn a bit more about how to edit constructively.

Since the last warning you have - among other things - removed colloquial names for various capital regions without a source and with the perfunctory explanation that they were "unnecessary"; here you added an unnecessary maintenance tag. You make some good edits, but a lot of bad ones, and other editors (as well as bots) have to follow you around and check each one to make sure they are sound. If you keep this up you may well end up blocked. JohnInDC (talk) 11:59, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Editing[edit]

Please stop changing the wordings of things. I keep having to revert your edits because they are either wrong, badly expressed or (in the case of shoving a bracketted bit into a leading statement) in the wrong place. You need to read what you are editing much more carefully than you do. The Avignon edit was a stuff-up. The changing of St Peter, the man, to St Peter's Basilica, the building, was a stuff up. Creating links is a useful thing to do, if you do it thoughtfully. Amandajm (talk) 02:27, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Capital region‎‎. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. NebY (talk) 13:32, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Romanesque architecture[edit]

I have just left you my New user guide at the top of your talk page.

I have just found a change that you made to Romanesque architecture about ten days ago, that I have just discovered. You will notice that one of the sections of my guide for new users concerns images. I'm going to tell you in detail why I removed the image, so that you are more aware of what to look out for.

  • The heading says Typical Romanesque forms. You added a picture where the foreground building is about 600 years too late.
  • Every image in the set shows a detail of a building, not a whole building. A door, a vault, some cloister columns, a tower, a window. Your image didn't follow through with the theme of the gallery, which is quite easy to see, if you look.
  • Every image in the set is a similar shape (vertical, not square or landscape). This isn't essential, but it does look good that way.
  • The headings all tell you what the picture represents "portal, vault, cloister...." and the exact location.
  • It doesn't date the photos, because it is a study of forms, not the history of a particular building.

Yes, Cluny Abbey is important for the establishment of the Cluniac order and the spread of their type of building. That is why it is mentioned in the text. But a general image of the site that mainly shows a building in an entirely different style is not the tiniest bit relevant to discussing the form, structure, and style of Romanesque architecture. In fact, it is very counter-productive for someone who doesn't know the subject. You may not be aware of this, but the greater part of the ancient abbey church at Cluny has gone. Further down the page is an image of that tower that is peeping over the top of the later building, in the section Towers.

Let me suggest that you take a good look around that page, read the headings of the sections, and the captions underneath, and understanding how images can be used thematically to enhance an article. Amandajm (talk) 11:53, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
