You wrote on the Talk:Liancourt Rocks‎

At the request of the staff of wikipedia I can offer more links to citations to support the information I've given.Clownface 08:49, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Staff do not write Wikipedia articles, we all do all you have to do is edit an article page. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. With rare exceptions, its articles can be edited by anyone with access to the Internet, simply by clicking the edit this page link. The name Wikipedia is a portmanteau of the words wiki (a type of collaborative website) and encyclopedia. Since its creation in 2001, Wikipedia has grown rapidly into one of the largest reference Web sites. See Wikipedia:About for more details. --Philip Baird Shearer


As a courtesy to other editors, it is a Wikipedia guideline to sign your posts on talk pages, user talk pages, and WikiProject pages. To do so, simply add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your comments. Your user name or IP address (if you are not logged in) and the date will then be automatically added along with a timestamp when you save your comment. Signing your comments helps people to find out who said something and provides them with a link to your user/talk page (for further discussion). For further info, read Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. Thank you. --Nightshadow28 19:38, 7 July 2007 (UTC)


You're one of the parties for this arbitration case that I'm filing. The link to the arbitration is at Wikipedia:Requests_for_arbitration#Current_requests. (Wikimachine 03:42, 2 September 2007 (UTC))

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Liancourt Rocks[edit]


An Arbitration case involving you has been opened: Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Liancourt Rocks. Please add any evidence you may wish the Arbitrators to consider to the evidence sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Liancourt Rocks/Evidence. You may also contribute to the case on the workshop sub-page, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Liancourt Rocks/Workshop.

Your behaviour on Liancourt Rocks[edit]

Clownface, as far as I can see, all the contributions to Wikipedia that you've made all this year are on Talk:Liancourt Rocks, arguing to the effect that Korea is right and Japan is wrong. This is disruptive behaviour and if you don't change it I'll recommend to the Arbcom that you be banned from the article. It's not your task on that talkpage to work out which side is right and which is wrong. Please don't sideline discussions there with arguments to that effect. All you are supposed to do on that talkpage is work out how to present arguments in a most balanced and neutral way, not fighting over which arguments are better. Your contributions are unhelpful and will not be tolerated. Fut.Perf. 11:55, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi, there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig2.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot 15:00, 24 September 2007 (UTC)


Hi, I suppose this anonymous edit [1] was you, right? (It was including the image you had uploaded a few minutes earlier.) In that case, please remember the rule that all edits to the L.R. page should have proper edit summaries.

As for your question about the technicalities of image inclusion, there's a good help page at Help:Images. Feel free to ask me if you have further problems. In the case of Image:Japanese-telegraph2.jpg it is crucial that you add information about the source and copyright status, otherwise it will be deleted. Thanks, Fut.Perf. 15:52, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Another reminder[edit]

May I remind you again to please use edit summaries when you make edits to the Liancourt Rocks article. It's that small edit field underneath the main edit box. Please use it to fill in a short description of what your edit does. Thanks, Fut.Perf. 06:13, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Signatures do not belong in articles[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you've been adding your signature to some of your article contributions. This is a simple mistake to make and is easy to correct. For future reference, the need to associate edits with users is taken care of by an article's edit history. Therefore, you should use your signature only when contributing to talk pages, the Village Pump, or other such discussion pages. For a better understanding of what distinguishes articles from these type of pages, please see What is an article?. Again, thanks for contributing, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! Thank you. --  Netsnipe  ►  13:04, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/Liancourt Rocks closed[edit]

The above arbitration case has closed, and Wikimachine (talk · contribs) has been banned from Wikipedia for one year. All parties are reminded that attempts to use Wikipedia as a battleground may result in the summary imposition of additional sanctions, up to and including a ban from the project. For the Arbitration Committee, Picaroon (t) 21:41, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

The user page and images[edit]

I hope you don't feel unpleasant with my edit to create your user page. I believe you're an Asian, so you could understand why I did it. (The red name reminds me of something not good for someone's fortune) If you felt violated, I apologize to you for my bold move.

Btw, I hope you can add the original site info onto the images you uploaded, that can't cause further trouble. The article seems to editors to have so many energies, so I'm afraid to engage in it again (I want just a peace and am tired of edit warring with somebody -_-). Good luck for your edit. Bye. --Appletrees 14:52, 6 November 2007 (UTC)


I have blocked you (and several other contributors) for 24 hours for edit warring on Liancourt Rocks ([2], [3]). Please note that there is a strict zero-tolerance policy against edit-warring in place on that article. Fut.Perf. 08:51, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Arbitration Motion Related to Liancourt Rocks[edit]

An arbitrator has started a motion here which will change the current article probation of Liancourt Rocks into a discretionary sanction on all pages related to Liancourt Rocks. You are notified because you were a party to the original arbitration case. - Penwhale | dance in the air and follow his steps 23:20, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
