Original research[edit]

I see that you have been making contributions recently. Thank you for those, but please be aware that adding original research is not allowed on Wikipedia. Everything that you add to an article needs to be found in verifiable secondary sources. Chances are good that someone will revert your additions if they are not attributed to a reliable source. -Phoenixrod (talk) 01:00, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

March 2008[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you've been adding your signature to some of your article contributions, such as the edit you made to The Fog of War. This is a simple mistake to make and is easy to correct. For future reference, the need to associate edits with users is taken care of by an article's edit history. Therefore, you should use your signature only when contributing to talk pages, the Village Pump, or other such discussion pages. For a better understanding of what distinguishes articles from these type of pages, please see What is an article?. Again, thanks for contributing, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! Thank you. If you believe your edit(s) did contribute positively to the article, please start a discussion on the article's talk page and notify me so I can improve my anti-vandal efforts by learning from my mistakes in order to make less in future.

Please sign your message in talk page[edit]

After a long day's work, SineBot can get pretty stressed.

You can't sign in the article but you are obligated to sign with 4 waves ~ after your message in any talk page. Although user:sinebot can sign your name automatically but it will unnecessarily enlarge the edit history of the talk page. -- 12:18, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Reason for my revert[edit]

Re your edit on Nicholas Kollerstrom - you described your edit as being a minor one, but to change the text from reading "which he argues may not have been" to "which he argues were" makes a substantial difference to the meaning of the content on the page. It should not be done without demonstratrion on the talk page that the change is required to accurately portray the reports of reliable, verifiable sources. -- Zac Δ talk! 19:33, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Unexplained edits on Nicholas Kollerstrom[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Nicholas Kollerstrom, you may be blocked from editing. -- Zac Δ talk! 20:10, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Status of Wilhelm Reich[edit]

Regarding this comment [2]. Can you please provide me references to any peer-reviewed studies that have contradicted the status of Reich's work? If not, then what do you base your claim on that much of his work was "soundly refuted"? I ask this because I'm at present contributing much to articles related to Reich's work and would like my contributions to be as accurate as factually possible - i.e. I'm gathering as much relevant literature as I can. You may respond here or on my talk page.--Gulpen (talk) 15:37, 20 September 2012 (UTC)
