Disambiguation link notification for January 7[edit]

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

January 2013[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Sonicsgate. 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. SudoGhost 18:50, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

12th man (football)[edit]

Appreciate the advice but there was nothing in my edits at 12th man (football) that constitute "vandalism". In fact, I provided explanation and justification for each change I made and those were based on the actual content of the recently provided reference sources. There were claims made based allegedly on those sources when in fact, the source information actually refuted the claims being made. As such, it is reasonable to edit the article to match the information within these sources. Thank you.Macae (talk) 06:19, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

In reference to your edit at Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor, my edits were in reference to comments[1] made by Shane Hinckley, Director Collegiate Licensing Texas A&M System, regarding current legal proceedings with the Indianapolis Colts.

Your continued support of Randolph Duke, a Texas fan who is a well-known internet troll that has made a personal crusade to bash and destroy everything and anything "Aggie" is troubling, as is your repeated use of "cited material" that is nothing more than the user citing himself. This is the equivalent of allowing Osama Bin Laden to edit pages related to Israel, Judaism, the United States, or anything that doesn't subscribe to Wahabbi Islam. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.132.44.241 (talk) 00:03, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Note, the related 12th man (football) article is now in protected mode due to the level of edit warring by anon IPs, sock puppets (WP:PUPPET), and such. FYI. You're welcome to create an account and/or join the discussion. UW Dawgs (talk) 03:01, 2 February 2014 (UTC)


just wanted to add that I noticed Randolph Duke is editing Texas A&M 12th Man related pages. I don't normally question the motivations of Wiki edits but in this case the guy is a blatant internet troll who went to the University of Texas (A&M's major rival FYI) who goes around to various message boards/articles/and comment sections, all under the same name, with the specific intent to bash A&M.

You can find examples of him doing these things with these links

http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-military-schools.php/3 in the comments section

http://www.shaggybevo.com/board/showthread.php/141664-aggy-spreads-their-cheeks-on-the-national-stage/page9 a Texas message board

http://www.latechbbb.com/forum/showthread.php?109523-The-Top-Ten-Things-You-Didn-t-Know-About-Texas-A-amp-M/page2 posted on a La Tech message board just before A&M played them in 2012

http://www.goodbullhunting.com/2014/1/27/5348976/12th-man-history-texas-am-aggies-e-king-gill-seattle-seahawks# again you can find him in the comments section

I just can't see letting him edit A&M related pages when he so clearly has a seemingly obsessive bias. Kentatm (talk) 19:32, 2 February 2014 (UTC)kentatm

Usernames aren't proof of identity or intent. Wikipedia has robust policies on WP:Conflict of interest issues. As of 7 January 2014 (25 days ago), welcome to Wikipedia! UW Dawgs (talk) 19:49, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

A username by itself is not proof of identity. However, in this case, there's a known pattern and consistencies across multiple platforms. His edits have absolutely nothing to do with ensuring accuracy; rather the need to "Bring Aggy down". THIS is the actual person http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_13651540 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.132.44.241 (talk) 20:00, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

understood on the Wiki username policy but I just wanted to bring to your attention that the specific username Randolph Duke has a long history of attacking Texas A&M on the internet. Perhaps it is not enough to ban him from editing A&M related articles however I do think it should be noted that specific name has been involved in countless attacks on A&M in many different internet locations. Is it possible that multiple people use that name and have all happened to constantly attack A&M? Sure. But the odds of that are... well... Just a heads up is all. Thanks for responding so quickly. :-) Kentatm (talk) 20:19, 2 February 2014 (UTC)kentatm

Randolph Duke, A/K/A CHARLES M. SATTERFIELD, graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, first semester Fall 1980 last semester Fall 1984, BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION major PETROLEUM LAND MANAGEMENT Dec 22, 1984, is a well known A&M detractor. His identity may be readily discovered using his IP address. He will likely cause you more trouble than his ability to edit is worth. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mccrex (talkcontribs) 17:28, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

I welcome (yet another) WP:SPA and possible WP:PUPPET with a minute edit history, solely focused on TAMU, coming to my talk page to "warn" me about a human I've neither met, nor corresponded with. UW Dawgs (talk) 17:46, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pacific-12 Conference, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages David Shaw and Mark Helfrich (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

NFL Draft section format[edit]

Hey, I saw that you're a contributor to college football articles, so could you leave your opinion here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject College football#NFL_Draft_section. I'm trying to get responses. Kobra98 (talk) 05:19, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at my talk page. Your edits appear to be disruptive.

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. Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.31.187.169 (talk) 03:05, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

By the way, based on the 12th Man section above, it appears you have some major issues with a certain school from Texas. Your most recent attacks lend further support to your bias and raise very serious questions about your ability to edit in a constructive manner. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.31.187.169 (talk) 03:11, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Reverted[edit]

Hi thank you for your message

I have reverted your decision to revert my edits.

I hope you don't mind but I have now listed the reason for these changes in the edit summery.

Kind regards Lukejordan02 (talk) 04:09, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

I have reverted an edit you made to Indianapolis Colts. A discussion was brought up to include or not include him in retired jerseys on the article's talk page. It is not officially retired by the Colts and should be left out. Chambr (talk) 22:35, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Super Bowl XLVIII[edit]

Hi, I saw you reverted the anonymous edits to Super Bowl XLVIII earlier today. The weird thing is, the IP was technically correct, since one of the turnovers was a fumble. I realise the IP's wording was a little – well – crappy, but we shouldn't be saying that Kaepernick threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter if he didn't. – PeeJay 19:10, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Max Unger[edit]

I thought about that. If there were only two Max Ungers, I would have given the ball player preference, but with three? That would require two hatnotes on every article. I dunno...I'm sure someone will change it at some point. I'm going to make certain that every reference to him leads to his article, not the dab page. (Max doesn't exactly look like he's headed to the Football Hall of Fame, anyway) WQUlrich (talk) 21:34, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

PS: Most of the links that lead to the dab page seem to be connected to navboxs (three, maybe four) if those were changed, all those links would disappear...but I can't figure out how to change them. WQUlrich (talk) 21:49, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Yah, I'm having second thoughts myself, going through all these links. Now, however, I'm afraid I'll really mess things up trying to undo it. WQUlrich (talk) 22:07, 23 June 2014 (UTC) (How do we take care of the disambiguation page?, for example) WQUlrich (talk) 22:10, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
Feel free to involve an administrator in this...If he/she can tell me how to undo this without really screwing everything up, I certainly will. My apologies...(can you guess that I'm not a sports fan?) WQUlrich (talk) 22:16, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I hate to sit by while someone cleans up after me...let me know if I can assist. I use library computers, so I only have an hour left today, then I won't be back until 11:00 AM (PDT) tomorrow. WQUlrich (talk) 22:31, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Thanx for the heads-up... Not only do I agree with you, I am opposed to User:Msjraz64 going ahead and making the changes he has recommended... GWFrog (talk) 23:44, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Southern Conference 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.
