Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 04:18, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Smallville citation[edit]

I'm trying to add a citation to a spot that said "citation needed" in the article, but you keep reverting it. Please leave the citation alone. The citation is to support the assertion in the article that Smallville is the longest-running sf show on TV. Whether you or I think that Smallville is or is not science fiction is a moot point. What matters is what reliable sources say about it, and there are quite a few that call it science fiction, including the one cited.

Thanks. Gorthian (talk) 21:39, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

sourcing[edit]

As you have been told on the notice board there is no requirement to discuss faulty sourcing before it is removed.

And, yes, it is perfectly legitimate to take something that qualifies as a reliably published source with a reputation for fact checking and accuracy and convert it from an optional external link that doesn't meet the guidelines for such a link and make it into a citation to validate article content. External links are optional, sourced content is not. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 00:30, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

regarding your recent comment on my talk page, you are wrong. the burden is on the person wishing to include the material to establish that the content can be verified in a reliably published source. There is no requirement to establish "not reliable" prior to removal. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 02:47, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
you were given this link at the ANI board Help:Page history. Except through administrative action to remove copyright or libel or truly egregious vandalism, all content from all previous versions is always available in the page history. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 03:10, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Removing PRODs[edit]

To object to a PROD, simply remove it, with an edit summary explaining why. Read WP:DEPROD for more help.--Auric talk 00:48, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Regarding AfC and verifying the links[edit]

Ok, so here's the thing, your Space Frontier is being referred to as a subgenre despite no reliable sources confirming that it is anything of the sort. I did verify the removed sources. None of them referred to a subgenre of Space Frontier independent of Space Western - except for the one that was clearly not within the boundaries of WP:RS and frankly, the tags for the deleted content had been there since August. You had plenty of time to go to the talk page and discuss it. Frankly if this page survives PROD (which is up to you) I'll probably redirect it to Space Western as it's otherwise going to end up at AfD and deleted anyway for failing to meet WP:BASIC.

Re: your last edit on halo[edit]

Articles for film franchises may have that, but many video game franchise articles don't (God of War, Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear, Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Dragon Quest, Doom, Dead Space, Dragon Age, Dead or Alive BioShock, Silent Hill, Prince of Persia). A couple I've found do, but they seem rarer (Tales (series), Hitman, Megami Tensei, Mass Effect) It seems generally to be different conventions for different media franchises. If you want, you can start a discussion about it, see if it's unintended or not. --ProtoDrake (talk) 22:46, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

There's a talk about it going on here. You can read what's written so far and contribute if you wish. --ProtoDrake (talk) 08:47, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

March 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at Dyslexia. 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. DavidLeighEllis (talk) 21:06, 8 March 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.
Today you've again edit-warred on Dyslexia by reverting to your preferred version. Wikipedia does not solve editing disagreements by trying to force their version onto the article. The talk page has multiple editors objecting to your misuse of tabloid sources to push your POV about dyslexia that has no currency in mainstream views. You are making no attempt to understand what has been explained to you and you are now risking a block for tendentious editing. --RexxS (talk) 21:30, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Add edit comments[edit]

Please add edit comments to let the rest of us know what you're doing. Better yet, if you must move text around, try to do it all in one edit. Every time you remove a section in a single edit, it gets tagged and will likely be swiftly undone. - Gorthian (talk) 00:16, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Another possibility is to copy the sections you're working on to a sandbox, edit it to your heart's content, then paste it into the article over the old stuff. But you have to watch out for intermediate edits etc. - Gorthian (talk) 00:23, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Denniss. I noticed that you made an edit concerning content related to a living person on Skandar Keynes, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source, so I removed it. 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. Thank you. Denniss (talk) 08:42, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your edit to the disambiguation page Battlestar Galactica (disambiguation). However, please note that disambiguation pages are not articles; rather, they are meant to help readers find a specific article quickly and easily. From the disambiguation dos and don'ts, you should:

  • Be familiar with the guidelines and style
  • Only list articles that readers might reasonably be looking for
  • Use short sentence fragment descriptions, with no punctuation at the end
  • Use exactly one navigable link ("blue link") in each entry
    • Only add a "red link" if used in an article, and include the "blue link" to that article
  • Do not pipe links (unless style requires it) – keep the full title of the article visible
  • Do not insert external links or references

Thank you. TJRC (talk) 23:38, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello I am The Mad Hatter and recently edited Space Opera and proposition to merge List of Space Opera Media and then again I think there is strong military science fiction and possible space westerns articles around. Can you point out how to work it out...? I will realy love to work through it. Thanks and regards, anonymous user.

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 48 hours for edit warring, as you did at Iranian languages. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Fut.Perf. 21:24, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
