Fun and interesting pages

And several pages on what to avoid:

One more thing is that you are an unregistered user on Wikipedia. I'd recommend you create an account (which is free and requires no personal information), because there are more benefits for you as a registered user and that your IP address ( will be concealed.

II hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian. You can start of learning about contributing to this encyclopedia by reading the Introduction. If you have a question about Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Questions or feel free to ask me a question on my talk page. If you would like to be a great and helpful contributor to this encyclopedia, there are alot of tasks to help out to this encyclopedia here, or clean backlogs, and you will be a helpful editor. One more thing, remember to sign your posts on Talk and discussion pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~ it will automatically insert your signature and the date, and remember to fill in the edit summary field. Good luck and good editing. Cheers. JoeSperrazza (talk) 17:12, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

April 2012[edit]

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, such as those you made to Virginia v. West Virginia‎. Such edits constitute vandalism and are reverted. Please do not continue to make unconstructive edits to pages; use the sandbox for testing. Thank you. - Tim1965 (talk) 13:32, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

October 2012[edit]

Hello, I'm DVdm. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made to List of Pokémon (52–101), because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks, DVdm (talk) 06:51, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Up the warning; BLP violations at Kai Greene (in that context grapefruit is a slur), and Ash Ketchum[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. Churn and change (talk) 04:03, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

December 2012[edit]

Your recent edit to the page Iowa class battleship‎ appears to have added incorrect information, so I removed it. If you believe the information was correct, please cite a reliable source or discuss your change on the article's talk page. -Fnlayson (talk) 16:50, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to Bradley Manning. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. – S. Rich (talk) 17:52, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Biblical Magi has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or 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 a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Wikipedia: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 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.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk 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 without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in 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. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:48, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Peter Lorre, but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. -- DonIago (talk) 14:45, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Sunflower Showdown. 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.

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. CorkythehornetfanTalk 21:05, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Information.svg Hello, and thank you for your recent contribution. I appreciate the effort you made for our project, but unfortunately I had to undo your edit because I believe the article was better before you made that change.
