I may just be an IP number to you but I've been on Wikipedia for years and made thousands of edits (not all with the same account). I don't judge people by their username (or lack of one). Unless you've been shadowed and harassed by another user, don't judge me for using an IP.

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Elizium23. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Christina Applegate without 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: I restored the removed content. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Elizium23 (talk) 18:14, 13 June 2013 (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.

Sea[edit]

Hi, I reverted your edit (WP:AGF) as it fundamentally misunderstands what the article is about. I have responded on the talk page so won't say much here, except to say that "the sea" is a common usage in many parts of the world - maybe less so in yours - and it means what the article says, not "an individual sea or lake" which is however discussed in the article if you read on. Thanks. Chiswick Chap (talk) 16:02, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm MusikAnimal. I noticed that you made an edit to a biography of a living person, Kieran Culkin, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source. Wikipedia has a strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. — MusikAnimal talk 15:22, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Skyfall[edit]

Don't edit war: it's utterly pointless and only causes people to get annoyed about your actions. Read WP:BRD and if one of your edits is reverted, go to the talk page of the article to discuss. I've reverted your edit again: it's pointless plot bloating and your additions add nothing to the article as a whole. - SchroCat (talk) 16:09, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm not edit warring. You reverted my addition and I reverted back. ONE reversion on my part, TWO for you (not counting the many other editors you revert). Now that I know you are insistent on being the only editor for this article, I'll move on to others where my contributions won't be automatically reverted due to feelings of ownership.
There's no reason to insult my editing: "pointless plot bloating and your additions add nothing to the article as a whole". Just state what's obvious: You own this article and nothing appears on it without your approval. That's the only fact that matters. It doesn't matter what content I had added, you clearly would have reverted any edit I made.
It's no big deal! If you want to police "Skyfall" (a tedious responsibility, I imagine), that's fine. I'll go on to some of the thousands of articles that don't have a guardian. It's all yours, and I'm sure you're continue to revert any good faith edits that occur on this page. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 16:20, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I reverted your addition (on the basis that it adds nothing). You reverted: that is the definition of edit warring. You can also cut the rubbish about ownership and try and keep a civil tone: there is no ownership here: your additions were just not up to scratch, that's all. - SchroCat (talk) 16:39, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I'll keep it civil. But since you are being so unpleasant, I will now be watching that article to make sure no one violates 3R rule. See, I was indifferent before and never planned to revisit that page again but now you have me engaged. I'll be monitoring it as well. Cheers!  ;-)
You are more than welcome to "monitor": a search of the article's history will show no breaches of 3RR, except by IPs who don't understand the guidelines of WP:FILMPLOT. As to your suggestions of me being "unpleasant", I'm bemused at where you think you can see this. - SchroCat (talk) 18:35, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Seriously? You're going to try to insult me because I'm using an IP number instead of an old username? As if that makes any difference! 69.125.134.86 (talk) 20:30, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
eerrrmmm.... Really not sure where you're getting this from at all: as per my last message, I am not and have not been unpleasant and I have not tried to insult you at any point whatsoever. The point I made was that the only people who have been guilty of breaching WP:3RR on Skyfall have been IP editors, to the best of my knowledge: I did not state, infer or imply that you were one of those editors. I suggest that you move on from this and try and concentrate on something more constructive. - SchroCat (talk) 21:13, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Noah[edit]

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Noah (film). This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Elizium23 (talk) 18:00, 17 July 2013 (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.
Warning retracted; this editor claims he has never been warned ("threatened") before - per WP:AGF and per discussion at User talk:Elizium23 and WP:Help Desk he has had this edit explained to him in clear terms. Elizium23 (talk) 05:27, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm XLinkBot. I wanted to let you know that I removed an external link you added to the page Anne Bonny, because it seemed to be inappropriate for an encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page, or take a look at our guidelines about links.  
Your edit here to Anne Bonny was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://maryread.weebly.com/) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia.

Genderqueer actors[edit]

While I agree with you in principle that the category should be deleted, please be aware that it's bad form to empty a category of its articles before nominating it for deletion or while the discussion is ongoing — unless the category is actually violating WP:BLP, you should leave the category populated and allow the discussion to take its course. Bearcat (talk) 02:24, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

I didn't know this and I won't do it again. I was trying to "be bold" but clearly, this is something that needs some further discussion. Thank you for your polite correction. It's appreciated! 69.125.134.86 (talk) 02:26, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
P.S. I do raise questions on Talk Pages where there hasn't been activity for years. It's not always clear to me where to go to get some issue addressed. This is the first time I've listed a category or page for possible deletion. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 02:28, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
No worries, it happens. Is there any chance that you remember which four articles were there before, so that you could at least list them in the discussion for clarity's sake? (That's one of the main reasons that it's not advised to empty the category in advance of the deletion discussion — other people viewing the discussion have no way of being able to tell what articles were involved.) Bearcat (talk) 02:37, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, I'm used to more zealous editors responding to edits with a hammer, not a polite request!
I'll try to recall those four actors. They are all listed under either the "Queer Men" category or that of "Queer women" so I'll just look for those people who are actors in those categories. I know definitions are sensitive subjects, it just seemed like too small of a group to create an entire category for especially since the "LGBT Actors" category is used to cover so many other types of orientation. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 02:55, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
Please comment on content, not contributors. Elizium23 (talk) 05:47, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
Where did I talk about you, Elizium23? We were talking about sorting gender categories and you inserted yourself in the conversation. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 21:04, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

twinkle[edit]

Hi - I've seen a couple of your nominations at CFD. You may want to consider using twinkle, which does nice stuff for CFDs, including notifying the category creator and properly tagging the nominated categories. I find it useful for all such XfD discussions. Best, --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 17:22, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I've noticed you, too. You're one of the few people who comments on my suggested deletions, mergers, etc. ;-)
What is twinkle? Is there a website/webpage for it? 69.125.134.86 (talk) 17:25, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
It's something you can turn on in your preferences. It can automatically add templates, report vandalism, nominate things for discussion, or speedy renaming, etc. Wikipedia:Twinkle. Quite useful - I would never do a CFD without it - too much work. It looks like it only works with confirmed registered users however. It seems you don't want to register a name. In that case, you can't use it :( BTW, there is also Category:Fictional killers, which I think we should probably purge and just retain as a container - otherwise every action hero and superhero would be in there - way too generic... There is a lot of violence in fiction! --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 18:34, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
I had a registered name when I first started editing (2007?) but then I was Wikistalked and it just wasn't fun any more when every edit I made was reverted or challenged. I didn't know anything about the Wikipedia/Wikimedia portion of the site where I could try to get this harassment ended. So I just quit instead.
When I came back, I just stuck with my IP and, aside from some "IP putdowns" by other users, everything has been fine. I've occasionally been challenged but, in most cases, it was justified and I can understand the reason. It hasn't been personal.
But the other day, I had to have a registered account (I think to propose an article for deletion) so I created a new account. And, wouldn't you know it, within the day, I had someone reverting almost all (90%?) of my edits. For some reason, once you have a username, people personalize things and want to find out who you are, what you've been editing, form sort of conception of what kind of person you are. With IP numbers, people just don't remember the numbered accounts and I haven't had anyone follow me around, checking up on my edits.
I edit enough now that I should realize be a registered account. But my goal is to make a lot of simple edits (typos, fix grammar, add/delete categories, complete infoboxes, check citation tags, etc.) rather than participate in involved debates. Being an IP helps me get more work done, faster.
Also, when I created the new account the other day, none of my editing history was carried over into the new account. I often refer to my contribution list to recheck certain pages so the fact that information wasn't there was disappointing. </end of my long, Wiki story> 69.125.134.86 (talk) 18:55, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your discovery on the Fictional killers. I guess that could be the parent category and also be a place for fictional characters who just commit one act of murder. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 18:59, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. I've actually seen the opposite, where IPs get a bit more of a raw deal - they're seen as less trustworthy - fair or not. I think the benefits of registering outweigh the costs, but there are also several IP editors who are quite happy - but they can't use all the tools. But I have trouble believing someone would revert edits from a username, but would not have reverted those same edits from an IP. I think your initial edits may be tagged as newbie, so that may be why... In any case, if you have an old account, and want to bring it back, you can rename it, then undo the redirect from the old name to the new name. That way, you will have your contribution history and watchlist/etc, but it will be a bit harder for people to tie you to the old name (though not impossible, it's all in the records somewhere). If there is a serious wikistalking problem again, you can get it reported and dealt with.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 19:15, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, that's what I meant by "IP putdowns", as in, "You reverted my edit, IP, and I'm a well-established editor. Who the hell do you think you are?" That kind of thing. I figure it's younger users who are taking themselves too seriously. I'm sure they'd be surprised to know I have three graduate degrees and I'm not a teenage vandal.
As for the recent incident, where this user reverted SEVEN back-to-back edits, I can see by looking at her/his contributions Special:Contributions/Flyer22 that they spend most of their time reverting other people's edits. That's a crappy job to do, but I guess I shouldn't have taken it so personally. They probably annoy a lot of more experienced users than I. Still, when I'm on a roll editing, seeing 7 changes immediately reverted back just makes me take a time out and come back later. Even when she/he and I "talked it out", I got a feeling my edits were being watched.
Sorry to be so chatty. But no one has come to my Talk Page with a friendly comment before so it's a pleasant surprise! 63.143.228.85 (talk) 19:56, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

I care less about the new username vs. the old username (they are basically identical) than I am with transferring editing history from the IP 69.125.134.86 account to either one of the usernames. But I'm not sure that can be done, even though I believe the "IP" will be identical on all three accounts, just hidden on the username accounts. But even though I have a Talk Page (obviously), I don't have a regular user page, so who knows. 63.143.228.85 (talk) 20:01, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't think you can move your IP contributions, but you can ask a bureaucrat - otherwise, someone with your same IP could claim them as theirs... The IP won't be identical (suppose you logged in from multiple places), I don't think they store your IP once you get a username in any case.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 20:03, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
hehe - you just moved ips. in fact, i could be talking to a doppleganger right now. hmmm... --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 20:04, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
It's because I'm at Starbucks, working on their wi-fi. But I usually work from home so have a stable IP number. By the way, I logged off and logged into my account but I can't find Twinkle in the Preferences. I guess I need to confirm my username or something. But I regularly look over edit history of @69 and I don't see anybody's else contribution. There is one other person who uses the home wifi network and I guess they aren't doing any editing. Newjerseyliz (talk) 22:30, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
It's here: [1]. Are you sure your home ip is stable? If your ISP hasn't given you a static IP (and they usually dont unless you ask), it could change at any time...--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 22:36, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

I haven't asked my ISP for a stable IP but it's always been the same on Wikipedia. At this point though, I've kind of thrown in the towel on being able to merge the accounts. It doesn't sound like it is an option. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 20:24, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

yeah, dynamic ips can stay around a long time. But if it gets released (say you turn off your router), you could lose it and never get it back. I'd suggest talking to some long-time Ip editors about why they do so, and how they manage various things.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 20:46, 27 July 2013 (UTC)ou
I wouldn't know where to find them! But I appreciate your help. By the way, I registered my account but Twinkle didn't appear in the preferences. The Twinkle page said you needed an "auto-approved" account and I'm not sure what that is.
Hope you are having a good weekend! 69.125.134.86 (talk) 21:06, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
you can post at the tea house or the help desk and flush some out of the woodwork with a kindly worded request. Auto approved means some threshhold, just keep editing it will happen eventually I don't know how many edits it takes. Twinkle is awesome tho.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 21:11, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Imaging instructions[edit]

To use a picture on Wikipedia, we need permission from whoever owns it.

  • If it is your OWN picture - then you can just upload it yourself, at "Commons", saying "It is entirely my own work" - at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Upload .
  • If it is NOT YOURS, then the owner can give permission in two ways;
A) They could put it on a website (flickr, or their own site) with an appropriate licence, such as "Public Domain" or "Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike" (that is an option in flickr)
B) They could email us permission. You could ask them to do that, by sending them an email saying something like:
"Hi, I've written a page on Wikipedia, and I'd really like to add a picture - but as Wikipedia is FREE, we can only use freely-licenced pictures. If you have any which you can give permission for, please send me an email back with the text below, and the picture(s) attached."
-Then add a copy of this: http://enwp.org/user:chzz/help/myboilerplate (having filled the form out)
-And send the email (attached picture file + completed form) to: permissions-commons@wikimedia.org

If any of your questions about how to insert images into an article aren't answered in these instructions, please refer to Help:Files and to Help:Contents/Images and media for a master-listing of all pertinent image-use links.
Hope this helps. Shearonink (talk) 22:48, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I've seen so many notices challenging images and the idea of finding one that would satisfy Wikipedia's criteria has been intimidating. I guess I haven't had an article that I cared enough about to go through the process. But, I guess, if I'm going to criticize images, I should be willing to do the work to find a better image. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 22:59, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

CeCe Frey[edit]

Thank you for participating on the CeCe Frey AFD. So you are aware, per WP:LOTSOFSOURCES, suggesting an article should be kept because it is well sourced is considered an argument to avoid. This is largely because having lots of sources does not necessarily mean the subject or person is notable. We have specific guidelines for people and this person does not meet them as per WP:OUTCOMES#Competitors. Secondly, I had a look at the sources and they were not very good. Most of them are not considered reliable secondary sources as they were the from the X Factor's official website. See WP:RS and WP:PRIMARY. Lastly, one of the other sources was a web forum. Just thought you should know before making an argument at AFD. Mkdwtalk 03:07, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Okay. 69.125.134.86 (talk) 09:55, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
