April 2014[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page List of deceased hip hop artists has been reverted.
Your edit here to List of deceased hip hop artists was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links in references which are discouraged per our reliable sources guideline. The reference(s) you added or changed (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=9553707) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. The site you were adding contains information which is in violation of copyright. Please check if the information on the page is not in violation of copyright before considering to re-add the link.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page.

July 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm DVdm. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Time, but you didn't provide a source. I’ve removed it for now, but if you’d like to include a citation to a reliable source and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. DVdm (talk) 19:23, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Phoney accuracy[edit]

Please stop adding wrong wikilinks as you did in the articles: Metaphysics, Measure (mathematics), Magnitude (mathematics), Philosophy of physics. --Omnipaedista (talk) 01:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Please stop adding wrong wikilinks: Gödel metric, Problem of time, Quantum Turing machine, Quantum logic, Interference (wave propagation). You clearly have no idea what you are doing. --Omnipaedista (talk) 15:01, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
You should assume good faith, and don't make this about me. Some of those articles have confusing terms inside them which may require further explanation/detail. Adding wikilinks, when correct, might help people better understand what they are talking about. If wrong, clarification i.e. a unique definition of said term is probably still needed within the article, as well as the incorrectly linked article. In other words, do not just revert constructive edits while leaving warnings. Explain why the Wikilinks were unrelated, and help clarify the terminology within the context of the article. 71.82.112.140 (talk) 16:18, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
You have been editing Wikipedia since 24 April 2014 and you have already been messaged about your activity; you never replied. So it is not reasonable for you to complain about "biting the newcomer". Besides, I am not talking about bad faith, but about competence. In the case of 8 articles (I exclude 'Problem of time'; this was a hasty revert) you added wikilinks that were plain wrong. You clearly had no idea what you did. That should be obvious if you take the time to read the articles you linked to in every case, but I will provide detailed explanation if you want me to. To sum it up: when in doubt about the meaning of a term, do nothing or ask someone who knows what they are doing to add wikilinks. --Omnipaedista (talk) 23:01, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
You wrote "If you notice something that is incorrect or incomplete, please fix the information and explain why on the talk page." But in some cases there is simply no wikilink. The term is too mundane to have a wikilink (see WP:OVERLINK). The wikilinks that you add refer to more technical meanings of the term than the meaning that the editors of the article you are editing intended. Furthermore, it is not reasonable to make bad edits and demand others to fix them (per WP:BURDEN). Wikipedia is a voluntary project; no one is obliged to follow other editors around to fix their edits. However, in effect someone will do it ("tracking a user's contributions for policy violations" is permissible per WP:HA#NOT). --Omnipaedista (talk) 23:39, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Again, you are making this about me. Please stop trying to claim that this is a case of overlinkage because it is not. The number of articles and wikilinks being added is not excessive (or too many). It is perfectly reasonable. This is not about me being a "newcomer" nor the time and date of my edits, so please stop trying to act like it is some sort of behavioral or timing issue. It is also not about me being incompetent, or "not knowing" what I'm doing. As I mentioned on your talk page, I know exactly what I'm doing. You might know much more about these subjects than the average reader, so that enables you to fix incorrect linkage and other errors. Please do not use that as an opportunity to warn me about misconduct and policy violations. What is mundane to you might be complicated to the reader, and that's why articles exist for all of those linked terms in the first place. Please stop calling my edits bad. I have made at least a few improvements to articles like MTIE and Problem of time by adding Wikilinks. The goal is to understand the scope of the information, not to be a burden and I would be more than willing to work with you if you can provide concrete proof for some of your claims. I will get back to you about the rest of the ones I have questions with, but I expect to keep adding Wikilinks where I see the need for them in articles lacking certain detail. 71.82.112.140 (talk) 01:22, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
It is something worse than "too many". They are wrong (not in all cases, but in the eight cases above they were). As I said more than once, it is obvious why if you take the time to read the articles you linked. I am willing to co-operate with you. Basically, I am asking you to be more careful when editing articles for the reasons explained above. --Omnipaedista (talk) 01:35, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
