Welcome[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions, especially what you did for Romani people. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Here are some other hints and tips:

  • I recommend that you get a username. You don't have to log in to read or edit articles on Wikipedia, but creating an account is quick, free and non-intrusive, requires no personal information, and there are many benefits of having a username. (If you edit without a username, your IP address is used to identify you instead.)
  • When using talk pages, please sign your name at the end of your messages by typing four tildes (~~~~). This will automatically produce your username (or IP address) and the date.

If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or type {{helpme}} on this talk page and a user will help you as soon as possible. I will try to answer your questions as best as I can. Again, welcome, and I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian. Endofskull (talk) 19:48, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

In a recent edit, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. Falcon8765 (TALK) 23:22, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

May 2011[edit]

Please don't change the format of dates, as you did to Windows 3.0 unless there is a valid reason to do so. In general, date formats in articles should correspond to the variety of English that the article is written in. This means that if an article is written about a British or European topic, the day-month-year format should be used, e.g., 12 December 1904. If an article is about an American topic, the month-day-year format should be used, e.g., December 12, 1904. If neither, the dates should be left in the format they were originally written in.

Please also note that Wikipedia does not use ordinal suffixes (e.g., st, nd, th), articles, or leading zeros on dates. For more information about how dates should be written on Wikipedia, please see this article.

If you have any questions about this, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Enjoy your time on Wikipedia. Thank you. Fleet Command (talk) 09:16, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page.

Archives, Charts and Cheats[edit]

I prefer your edit on the Elector vote in NJ over the latest Ben-change. Unfortunately, though I am trying to support your previous edit, I am both INTJ and aging badly. What I intended to convey may not turn out to be so on publishing, unfortunately. Just in case, as a personal courtesy to you, here's what I posted in the discussion page, 1860 Presidential election


On the edit by Ben76266 of 16 Jun 2011, I am reluctant to change what is in the primary documents. By New Jersey law, on December 7, 1860, Lincoln won 4 electoral votes, Douglas won 3, as found in New Jersey archives, | “Electoral College Minutes”. The U.S. Congress certified the count on February 11, 1861 as found on |“Map: 1860 Election Results”.

I thought editor 96.25.248.210 rendering ½ to ½ was generous since Lincoln won 3/5 of NJ electors. But If we must round one way or the other (per POV?) for editorial economy of style in a chart, can there be some sort of asterisk-note to explain the historical detail?

Please discuss how there were 'Faithless' electors in this 1860 New Jersey elector count, along with references that dispute the findings of the U.S. Congress. There were federal court challenges in Illinois and Texas for the 1960 election, but I have not run across any for 1860. Were there charges of 'faithlessness' in the contemporary newspapers? What can be found in the record?

Apart from the article discussion, California’s 2008 winner-take-all count effectively disenfranchised five millions who would have been more nearly represented with a district plan. Rats, that is SOAPBOX. But I do apologize that New Jersey’s 1860 experiment in Electoral College fairness does somehow disappoint. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 12:24, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Mitchell and Martin Defection[edit]

You changed N.S.A. to NSA in a quote. I reverted your edit. The quote is a quote is a quote... Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 00:44, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Douglas MacArthur[edit]

Please don't change the format of dates, as you did to Douglas MacArthur unless there is a valid reason to do so. In general, date formats in articles should correspond to the variety of English that the article is written in. This means that if an article is written about a British or European topic, the day-month-year format should be used, e.g., 12 December 1904. If an article is about an American topic, the month-day-year format should be used, e.g., December 12, 1904. If neither, the dates should be left in the format they were originally written in.

Please also note that American Military History articles use American military dates, the day-month-year format should be used, e.g., 12 December 1904.

If you have any questions about this, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Enjoy your time on Wikipedia. Thank you. Hawkeye7 (talk) 01:19, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Hello. Please don't change the format of the date articles as you have done here, here, here, and here. The format of the date pages is governed by a template so that all of the articles are consistent. If you have questions or concerns about the format, please discuss it at WT:DAYS. Thanks. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 09:17, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

October 2011[edit]

Welcome and thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test on the page Mobutu Sese Seko worked, and it has been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment further, please use the sandbox instead. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. -- Donald Albury 12:31, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

January 2012[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Professional wrestling holds. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in you being blocked from editing.
Per WP:R2D, "There is nothing inherently wrong with linking to redirects. Some editors are tempted, upon finding a link to a redirect page, to bypass the redirect and point the link directly at the target page. While there are a limited number of cases where this is beneficial, it is generally an unhelpful exercise, and it can actually be detrimental."

Except this was a helpful edit. And it's not like I really did anything like change [[apple]] to [[washington apple]]. I just changed [[Harry Smith (wrestler)|Harry Smith]] to [[David Hart Smith|Harry Smith]]. First, that is NOT disruptive editing and you don't know how things work, so stop with the BS warnings you know nothing about. I shouldn't be surprised though since the quality of this website has been tainted for quite some time anyways. Second, it was a helpful edit. 96.25.248.210 (talk) 18:08, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/TJ Spyke[edit]

Puppeter template.svg

Your IP has been mentioned in connection with a sockpuppetry case. Please refer to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/TJ Spyke for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to cases before editing the evidence page. — Amalthea 13:36, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

If you want to provide input to the discussion, this is probably your last chance. WP:R2D is an editing guideline supported by community consensus. You've been ignoring that guideline for years, have been blocked for it, and are now also violating WP:SCRUTINY as well. This is a community project. Don't put yourself above the community, please. Amalthea 10:52, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
I really don't get why you think you are right and everyone else is wrong, and apparently feel compelled to make these changes. I have now blocked this IP for the continued inappropriate use of multiple accounts. Anon only, so you can still edit with your named account. If you continue to ignore community consensus on WP:R2D I see no choice but to block that account as well. Amalthea 12:05, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of video game exclusives (seventh generation) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 08:22, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
