Thank you! I will try to make my best. I already read part of the pages that you have mentioned. Please note that I want to write in the English Wikipedia, after all she is the most popular, but my English is not at the same level as my Russian and Hebrew. I will pass my edit in spell check but if there will be some errors do not be too hard.

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello אלכסנדר סעודה, and welcome to Wikipedia. All or some of your addition(s) to Effects of global warming have been removed, as they appear to have added copyrighted material without evidence of permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributions to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from sources to avoid copyright and plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify the information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a legally designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. Understand, though, that unlike many other sites, where a person can license their content for use there and retain non-free ownership, that is not possible at Wikipedia. Rather, the release of content must be irrevocable, to the world, into the public domain (PD) or under a suitably-free and compatible copyright license. Such a release must be done in a verifiable manner, so that the authority of the person purporting to release the copyright is evidenced. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are PD or compatibly licensed) it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions, the help desk or the Teahouse before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you must follow the copyright attribution steps in Wikipedia:Translation#How to translate. See also Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. — Ninja Diannaa (Talk) 00:41, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I tried to make the edit according to these rules.

August 2018[edit]

Hello, I'm Jim1138. I noticed that in this edit to Effects of global warming, you removed content without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, the removed content has been restored. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Jim1138 (talk) 07:35, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jim1138:

When I write all this information about the heatwave in 2018 before 2 or 3 days, there was some plaint that this is a summary article and there is an exess of information. So i preferred to give in thise page more short end "summary" information and the more detailed information copy to the page "heat wave" to a special section that I created "Climate Change and Heat waves". You can see it here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_wave#Climate_Change_and_Heat_waves

I think it better like this so please returne my edit to his place. I would try to explain my edits next time. אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 07:48, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Your spelling and grammar are quite off on Heat wave with this edit. Do you have a spell-checker? Jim1138 (talk) 07:57, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jim1138:

There is a lot of free spell chekers in google. If you think I should use it, I agree. But what about the page effects of global warming? I think it will realy be better if we put there more general information and the news in more specific page. Can you returne my edit or allow me to do it? Also it is important to give a link from this page to the section of heat waves that I created. I do not sure how to make it in the most effective way. Can you help me with that? --אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 08:05, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Your edit needs a lot of work. This: Extremly hot summers are observed in territory 50-100 time bigger. doesn't make sense. (Extremely is the correct spelling). 50-100 times bigger? Area? One of the major factors is that humidity is considerably higher. The humidity and the temperature combine to make it lethal. Go ahead and change it. I'm to tired to copy/edit. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 08:11, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jim1138:

I made the changes that the spell checker say me to do. Now can we returne the information about the effects in global scale to the page Effects of global warming? You understand that it is important that this infirmation will be in this page? I mention humidity. The detailed news should be as I think in the page heat waves in the special section... What do you think?

אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 08:46, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jim1138:

Look how it is writed here:

https://www.cancilleria.gob.ec/en/ecuadors-maritime-territory-will-be-5-3-times-larger-than-the-continental-national-territory-once-the-agreement-enters-into-force-with-costa-rica/

"Ecuador´s maritime territory will be 5.3 times larger than the continental national territory" Is there another way to write it?

אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 08:58, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Ecuador's exclusive economic zone will be over five times its land area? Jim1138 (talk) 09:13, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

@Jim1138:

I only want to show that this is how it written when talking about bigger area. So, can I return my edit to the page Effects of Global warming?

אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 09:17, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm not going to argue about it. Someone else might. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 09:19, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
I'm willing to fix the occasional typo or grammar error. I'm not willing to spend oodles of time deciphering incomplete translations. In our infospace pages is the principle that "There is a presumption that people who contribute to English Wikipedia have.... the ability to read and write English well enough to avoid introducing incomprehensible text into articles. Wikipedia welcomes any text that is easy to understand but if a person's inability to use the English language prevents them from writing comprehensible text in articles or from communicating effectively with other members of the community, it can create problems for others." The guideline goes on to suggest such editors post to the talk page in hopes another editor with better English skills will take time to follow up on their suggestions.

───────────────────────── Tips

(A) Please add some Latin alphabet characters to your signature. What you're using now is fine, its just polite to supplement with something others can see and remember on the English Wikipedia. Read more at Wikipedia:Signatures#Non-Latin
(B) It's not necessary to use Ping constantly. When you reply to someone, they almost always have the page on their WP:WATCHLIST and will see it. If you add thoughts to a prior comment, so long as no one has replied you can just delete the prior signature and add your comments. That way there is an organized list of remarks. When there are several points, I like to add letters to the points and people can refer to those letters in their own answers.
(C) Read through WP:Talk page guidelines, there is lots of good info there. Click on the links and read those too.
(D) One of those links is about keeping the layout clear. An important part of that is to use good indentation and threading.
(E) The place to have article content discussion is on the article talk page. Sometimes people will start talking content on your user page, and you can start a thread at article talk to steer them there. I see you did that with respect to Heat Waves, thanks. An important essay to review is WP:BRD.
Have fun

NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 10:22, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. I will do my best to write according to all the rules, altough it is difficult to remember all.

Alexander Sauda

Thanks for tweaking your signature to add letters I understand. If that's what you Mother calls you, that's fine. However, have you considered the possible downsides at Wikipedia:Username_policy#Real_names ? (You can copy and paste that text into the search box) NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 10:49, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

original research[edit]

Please read WP:Original research, then study the sources you used in this edit to see if they really truly say what you wrote, or if you connected the dots in your own head. If you can find reliable secondary sources that really do connect the heat wave to the harvest to conflict and climate change, or say there is NO connection between them, then whatever the sources say fact you have found them would be great! And we can go from there. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 09:46, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

use a spellchecker[edit]

Please oh please before posting new paragraphs riddled with spelling (and grammar) errors please run a spellchecker. If necessary, copy the text and paste it into a MS Word or other English-language word processor. Thanks NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 12:44, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

DS Climate change[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svgThis is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have recently shown interest in Climate change. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect: any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or any page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.

NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 12:09, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

comment[edit]

That template is an FYI template. I gave the same one to myself. It means that people need to pay attention to WP:ARBCC#Principles. If there are problems an WP:ADMIN can intervene with little notice, usually by issuing a short WP:BLOCK on offending editors. I think the other regular editors at climate pages where I have seen you have already received this notice, or its equivalent. If not, any editor can post it on another's talk page, so long as its done in accord with the DS procedures. To find out what those are, read the links in the template message.

Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC[edit]

Thanks for your message on my talk page. I explained my edit in my edit summary. The comparison with Canada is not in the report itself so counts as OR. Your subsequent edit is also ungrammatical and contains the same OR. -- Jmc (talk) 06:54, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

The source about the territory of Canada is in the page "Canada" and I gave the link. If I will give special citation with link to good source about this will you accept it? If you do not want the word "territory" may be you will accept the word "area"? Even Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations use it for example in page 8 here:

STATE OF THE WORLD’S FORESTS.

I simply want make the page not only grammaticaly correct but also understandable for all - I want people to understand what area should be covered by forest.

--אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 09:57, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

I've again rolled back your edits because of grammatical errors. Please have your edits edited by a native English speaker before adding them to Wikipedia. -- Jmc (talk) 19:08, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Done.

--אלכסנדר סעודה (talk) 07:16, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

cobenefits[edit]

There are probably high quality RSs out there which talk about biking being a cobenefit of climate mitigation and healthy living, and if you find some please try again. But I had to take out what you added so far. See edit summaries at Global warming article for details. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 19:09, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Plastic Pollution[edit]

Hello אלכסנדר סעודה. I undid your edit but accidentally hit return before including reasons in the summary - sorry for that. However, your edit did not seem to be on the specific topic of plastic pollution, being mostly about chemical pollutants and other environmental issues, and so would be more appropriate elsewhere. Moreover, I could not locate any 2018 survey that the content reports on and the source for the content that you added seemed to be reportage of third-party opinion, which itself was not substantiated. If the survey does exist, it would be very helpful to reference it directly as a source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kraql (talkcontribs) 15:28, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

how to try again[edit]

Option A is to just undo my revert, but that would be edit warring

Option B is to find some decent WP:SECONDARY sources to go with the primary source, and write a paragraph that explains some context and why this matters. Find the best spot in the article to weave it in. I am opposed to just stringing bullet point after bullet point together, as new papers come out. Oh yes... and for heaven's sake, please stop posting garbld@!Q@2 Engiz that no verbally has and must others take time to figure correct out. This is the English wiki. See WP:CIR... respecting the time of English speaking editors is part of the price of admission, and we all know you can translate and rework the grammar of your desired edits by taking your own time, not ours.
