May 2008[edit]


Hi, the recent edit you made to Guernica (painting) has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks.

Re: Your WP:AFC submission[edit]

Your submission was declined because you did not include any secondary sources with your submission. We are unable to accept submissions which do not include sources and must automatically decline them. If you include reputable third party sources in your submission and make it clear why the subject is notable, your article is likely to be created. Cheers! Redfarmer (talk) 11:35, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Your submission is a bit better this time but all of the sources you list are primary sources. Please note we need secondary sources, not primary sources, to determine the notability and verifiability of the topic. I'll give you a bit of time before I decide what to do with it if you would like to revise your sources. Redfarmer (talk) 12:02, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

I've created the article with the secondary source you provided. You should note that simply because another article is unsourced does not make it correct. Unfortunately, there are some registered users who create articles with little or no sources and need to be cleaned up. It is of upmost importance that articles have secondary sources to determine the notability and verifiability of the subject. Nonetheless, thank you for your contribution!

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. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.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 (talk) 13:45, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Many thanks for the advice and confirmation! (talk) 14:24, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

July 2008[edit]

Information.svg Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did to Haggis. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.--§ Lights talk 13:53, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edit on Alestorm[edit]

I saw you just wanted to insert an Alestorm image from an external website. It is however not possible to display such pictures on wikipedia, there only remains a link to the specific image (for help on image stuff, see H:IOUF). In order to embed images you have to upload them on wikipedia (for how, see WP:UPIMAGE), but this is generally only legal if the picture is your own work or if you have a permission from the copyright-holder. Coincidentally there was a free Alestorm picture on Wikimedia Commons which I now added to the article. If sth is still unclear, feel free to ask me. -- Lacrimus (talk) 12:17, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

September 2010[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Ullapool, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. The reverted edit can be found here. Thank you. Ucucha 13:29, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
