May 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Religion in national symbols, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Got sources?[edit]

I see you've made lots of edits like this. Do you have supporting sources? It's very easy to assume that a country's armed forces simply carry their national flag and that the commander-in-chief is simply the head of state; however, in reality, there are exceptions. An encyclopædia shouldn't be built on assumptions; lacking sources, I will remove this stuff. bobrayner (talk) 10:45, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Further to what Bob posted above, lots of military services have their own flag/ensign or a symbol which is used for identification purposes which is better suited to being added to the infobox than the national flag. Nick-D (talk) 11:56, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Hey dude, guess what[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Someone just wants to let you know you did something silly.

I whacked you beacuse of what you did to Huon! NewFranco (talk) 20:16, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

That's enough broadcasting on The Nightmare Room! — Preceding unsigned comment added by GeorgeOfThePurpleBananas (talkcontribs) 14:40, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

December 2012[edit]

Please stop:

A) adding presidential/governmental standards to infoboxes

B) adding national flags as the flags for non- or anti-governmental groups

Yes, presidents have personal ceremonial standards. Congratulations, you're so smart for knowing that! Wow! Great! But unless Barack Obama is flying fighter jets over Libya, he's acting as C-in-C of the armed forces of the United States. So we use the country flag. Same goes for every other head of state. And these flags are generally restricted to organisations that use them officially. The fact that a rebel group operates within a country does not mean that it uses that country's flag. Don't enforce your own weird personal preferences across dozens and dozens of articles. ~~ Lothar von Richthofen (talk) 15:47, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Northern Mali conflict[edit]

Canada, UK and Germany all contribute transport planes so far. Germany+UK will also send military advisors as part of the EU mission. Anyway, either we include all three national leaders or none of them. Cheers, --Hisredrighthand (talk) 02:31, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

April 2013[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to an article may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Werieth (talk) 16:14, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I reverted your recent submission at Fairly OddParents because the information does not meet the guidelines in the Manual of Style for Television, which states:

When detailing a show's international broadcasting, simply listing every channel the series appears on is discouraged, Wikipedia is not a television guide. Apart from the channel of origin for the series, editors are encouraged to instead detail English-speaking countries that the series appears through prose form.

When the International broadcast information was removed a few days ago, the editor included a link to WP:MOS:TV in his edit summary. It's always a good idea to check the article edit summaries before resubmitting content that has been removed. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:05, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm MelbourneStar. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Goosebumps (TV series) because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! —MelbourneStartalk 14:32, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Yintan. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks,  Yinta 11:12, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

List of TV Networks airing The Fairly OddParents[edit]

Per the Manual of Style for television articles, "When detailing a show's international broadcasting, simply listing every channel the series appears on is discouraged, Wikipedia is not a television guide. Apart from the channel of origin for the series, editors are encouraged to instead detail English-speaking countries that the series appears through prose form."

Also, I noticed that your edit summary was in French, not English. When on the English-language Wikipedia, please always use English, no matter to whom you address your comments. This is so that comments may be comprehensible to the community at large. If the use of another language is unavoidable, please provide a translation of the comments. For more details, see Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines. Trivialist (talk) 17:33, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

I speak French somethimes 99.229.41.79 (talk) 17:34, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps you could translate what you said? Trivialist (talk) 17:45, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Also, The {{infobox tv}} parameters "channel" and "network" are only for "the original channel/channels or network/networks on which the show appeared or appears. Do not add foreign broadcasters here." Trivialist (talk)

Any user can post on user talk pages or post template messages. Trivialist (talk) 19:00, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

I"m sorry, I still don't understand why you're asking that. (Also, are you connected with User:NewFranco? Trivialist (talk) 22:28, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

I don't know what it has to do with anything, but I'm not British. Trivialist (talk) 00:57, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Per the Manual of Style for television articles, "When detailing a show's international broadcasting, simply listing every channel the series appears on is discouraged, Wikipedia is not a television guide. Apart from the channel of origin for the series, editors are encouraged to instead detail English-speaking countries that the series appears through prose form." What part of this don't you understand? Trivialist (talk) 01:17, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

You're missing the point -- it's not that it's controversial, it's that it's unnecessary detail. This is a general encyclopedia, not an indiscriminate collection of information. Trivialist (talk) 02:16, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Stop icon This is your last warning. The next time you make disruptive edits to Wikipedia contrary to the Manual of Style, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:12, 8 May 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.

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Qing Dynasty may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s and 1 "<>"s likely mistaking one for another. 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) 01:21, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in Animaniacs. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. SQGibbon (talk) 01:52, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Animaniacs in Singapore[edit]

You saying you saw it is not enough, we need a source. Please read Wikipedia policy on verifiability. Also, according to the guide that controls TV shows we are only to mention English-language broadcasts (click here). Finally, Wikipedia is not a TV guide, you did not mention if this was first-run or syndication, we should only list first-run broadcasts. SQGibbon (talk) 02:22, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Animaniacs shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. SQGibbon (talk) 02:23, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Three revert rule[edit]

You asked what the "three revert rule" means. The notice states it pretty clearly but basically editors are not to fight over edits by reverting each other multiple times. When an editor reverts another editor three times within a 24 hour period the reverting editor can be blocked. Unless, of course, the editor is reverting vandalism.

In this case I have explained to you what MOS:TV states about the subject as well as the lack of reliable sources you've supplied. Your edits are inappropriate. However, if you think they are justified according to Wikipedia policies and guidelines then instead of continuing to revert my edits, discuss it on the talk page. If a consensus view is reached that your edit is appropriate according to Wikipedia policies and guidelines then it will be integrated into the article.

In summary, discuss on the talk page before making the same edit again. SQGibbon (talk) 02:41, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to List of municipal flags of Hokkaidō does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! Cnilep (talk) 01:38, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

2004 Summer Paralympics[edit]

Hello, the links you added in your edits to your edits to 2004 Summer Paralympics were grossly inappropriate per the relevant Manual of Style. Such detail is completely unnecessary, anyway. You have been warned many, many times about Manual of Style violations; please pay attention to these warnings. Graham87 08:37, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, they were; they constituted the most extreme form of overlinking I have ever encountered because there is absolutely no need to link each of the letters of the word "flag" to a different article. What is so magical about the 15th of May, that makes all the warnings before that time invalid according to you? Graham87 11:58, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Flag icons - please stop[edit]

Please do not add Flag icons to articles, as you have done at List of reportedly haunted locations in the world, and at Reportedly haunted locations in the United Kingdom, and at List of reportedly haunted locations in Canada. This is contrary to the Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Icons and the consensus of many past discussions. Thank you. –Quiddity (talk) 20:42, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Per your reply on my talkpage, I can see that an editor from this IP is making the changes, via the "History" of any article, and from this IP's Special:Contributions/99.229.41.79 page. –Quiddity (talk) 20:52, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
