Vandal ?[edit]

As you can read in the official Wikipedia policy on verifiability:

The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth.

I'm sorry if this is news for you, but nobody cares about your opinion on the matter, whether it is true or not. I am somewhat amazed that you do not realize that a sentence like the one you added does not belong in an encyclopedic article. For almost any subject – Brussels sprouts, songs by Frank Sinatra, the leather culture, you name it – there are lots of people who hate it. There are also lots of people who like it. And there are lots of people who are indifferent. Even if we could find reliable sources for these statements, do you think it is worth adding this to the articles on these topics? Most people who "hate math" are taking mathematics in school as a compulsory subject; what they actually hate is not mathematics itself, but the way it is being taught in school. An article on the relationship between how maths is taught and how it is received by the students could be an interesting article in our encyclopedia, but only if it is based on analyses provided in reliable sources.

If you were not aware of the Wikipedia policy on verifiability – but every editor ought to know the five pillars of Wikipedia – then perhaps your second edit was not vandalism. But if you continue to add it, as you threatened to do, not only would you be violating the verifiabilty policy and the policy against "original research", but you'd also be edit warring, which by itself is also against policy. Doing so would definitely qualify as vandalism. Please make yourself familiar with the Wikipedia core policies and guidelines, and always assume good faith and aim at reaching consensus. Happy editing!  --Lambiam 09:47, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

November 2008[edit]

Information.svg Thanks for experimenting with the page Not Another Teen Movie on Wikipedia. Your recent edit appears to have added incorrect information, and has been reverted or removed. All information in the encyclopedia must be verifiable in a reliable published source. If you believe the information you added was correct, please cite references or sources or discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia. Thank you.

January 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not introduce incorrect information into articles, as you did to Not Another Teen Movie. Your edits appear to be vandalism and have been reverted. If you believe the information you added was correct, please cite references or sources or discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them again. If you would like to experiment, use the sandbox. Thank you. This is the second warning you have received about this exact same misinformation. If you believe I am in error, you need to provide a source for this information. (Note: don't bother looking for one because the woman in the movie is clearly not Ally Sheedy.)

Quotes in Watchmen[edit]

You know, when a word appears in the brackets it is because it wasn't part of the original quote. If you adjust a quote to fit a sentence then you must make sure you note that in the quote (i.e. placing brackets around the adjust part). This is done in some instances where the tense doesn't fit the passage it is used in, or a person was not identified in that particular sentence. You are not allowed to adjust quotes without pointing out what you have adjusted (i.e. without putting brackets on). 156.75.192.109 (talk) 15:33, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Superjail.[edit]

You cannot substantiate the edits you are making to the article. Please stop adding your personal opinions and speculation to the article. ThuranX (talk) 20:34, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Again, stop. YOu cannot provide citation that they are scandanavian, you are disrupting the direct quote, and you are adding your opinions. all of these are things which make the article worse, not better. ThuranX (talk) 03:07, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
I have watched the show, you hjave no sources. Further, pelase leave messages on a user's TALK page, not his front page. ThuranX (talk) 05:40, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Stop adding material which cannot be supported by citation to the article, and stop making personal attacks against me. If either event occurs again, I will bring this to the attention of administrators. ThuranX (talk) 19:59, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Your most recent missive to me is yet another annoyingly hostile personal attack. Get over yourself, or you'll find yourself blocked again soon, because maintaining that attitude on this project will rapidly get you there. ThuranX (talk) 21:35, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

June 2009[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not attack other editors, which you did here: User talk:ThuranX. If you continue, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. ThuranX (talk) 01:28, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Superjail!. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. Please stop until you have an actual source to support your opinions. OnoremDil 21:48, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Please read WP:RS. Just saying that the first season is your source doesn't cut it. --OnoremDil 22:04, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Edit warring report is at WP:AN3#User:5150pacer reported by Onorem♠Dil (Result: ) if you're interested in commenting. --OnoremDil 22:09, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
I looked for a proper citation. I couldn't find one. It's original research unless you find a source that comments on it. --OnoremDil 22:10, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


"What i'm saying is that there is no source that comments on it, so there can't be a citation can there"

I suppose that is correct. What I'm saying is that if there is no source that comments on it, it doesn't belong in the article. Promising to continue to edit war to insert your unsourced original research isn't likely to be productive. --OnoremDil 22:21, 2 June 2009 (UTC)


"it's just too enigmatic to leave out of the article."

That's one opinion. I don't see any consensus that agrees at this point.

"I'm ending the war, but the edits will continue. No disrespect, but it is what it is."

In that case, I'm assuming you're looking forward to being blocked. --OnoremDil 22:57, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm happy to be the ass if you're happy with not adding more unsourced info. And by the way, I didn't assume that you took editing seriously. If you took it seriously, you wouldn't be adding unsourced information after multiple editors tried telling you what was wrong with your approach. --OnoremDil 16:06, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 72 hours in accordance with Wikipedia's blocking policy for violating the three-revert rule at Superjail!.

'Citation needed' tags[edit]

Please don't remove 'citation needed' tags without providing a citation. These tags indicate someone has challenged a statement and should remain in place until a citation is supplied, or until they 'age out' (date over a month old), at which time the statement (not the tag) can be removed if an editor thinks the statement is dubious. This is what I have done with the two aged-out tags you deleted in Fight Club. Thanks, CliffC (talk) 04:07, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Just to clarify - on Fight Club, I deleted those two fact-tagged statements because they did seem questionable and no one had come up with a citation after several months. I also undid several other of your fact-tag removals where no citation was supplied.
When you're a busy editor, it is sometimes had to remember where you've been, but you can click on the 'my contributions' link at the top of the page to see. --CliffC (talk) 13:35, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
