If this is a shared IP address, and you didn't make the edit, consider creating an account for yourself so you can avoid further irrelevant notices.

February 2011

Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to V for Vendetta (film), but we cannot accept original research. Original research also encompasses novel, unpublished syntheses of previously published material. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. -- Doniago (talk) 17:57, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

May 2011[edit]

Thanks for your contributions, but you need to read the hidden note. The article list of events named massacres is only for events for which it can be verified that they have been referred to as a massacre. Failing that, we cannot include them in the article. Sorry. --John (talk) 16:37, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

If you can find reliable sources that the event was referred to (named) as a massacre, feel free to bring them to talk. --John (talk) 17:22, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
The sources I referred to where the name "massacre" was used are in Dutch and don't literally translate to the same word but have the same definition in the Dutch language. Many of the other events listed as "massacres" didn't refer to any sources either, so this is a real load of nonsence and nitpicking. Did you go through the entire list of massacres mentioned on that wikipage and see if they listed any sources where they were mentioned as a "massacre" by name...? I don't think so, or otherwise you missed a few ... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:51, 28 May 2011 (UTC)
So please add the sources that name the events you wish to add as a massacre, either to the article or to its talk page? Please also see WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. Do not edit war, please. --John (talk) 01:08, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. --John (talk) 00:33, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
