July 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm McGeddon. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Reddit, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Reddit posts are sources, but not reliable sources, as anybody can write them and they have little or no editorial oversight - see WP:BLOGS. McGeddon (talk) 09:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

If this is a shared IP address, and you did not make the edits, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.
If "there is no reliable source" for something then it doesn't belong in Wikipedia. This by itself is just an issue that needs to be raised with you, the editor unfamiliar with Wikipedia policy on sourcing, not with the article itself, so it goes on your user talk page. --McGeddon (talk) 11:05, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Reverting other editors[edit]

Information icon You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you.--McGeddon (talk) 11:19, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

You are suspected of sock puppetry, which means that someone suspects you of using multiple Wikipedia accounts for prohibited purposes. Please make yourself familiar with the notes for the suspect, then respond to the evidence at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Themainman69. Thank you.
