Recent edit to Westwood Plateau[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Westwood Plateau, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you!

Population sources[edit]

I noticed that you updated some population numbers on articles from the 2016 census without providing a source. Providing a source for information like this is a Wikipedia policy WP:VERIFIABILITY and most importantly it gives credibility to Wikipedia when people can easily verify information that they find here. Please go back to your edits and include your source. Thanks a lot. Air.light (talk) 21:46, 12 February 2017 (UTC) Sorry. I was in a rush. Socialistboyy (talk) 20:25, 2 March 2017 (UTC)socialistboyy

If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. TheCoffeeAddict talk|contribs 12:57, 9 March 2017 (UTC) Not constructive? Seriously? Thats the actual population as of the 2016 census. Socialistboyy (talk) 13:01, 9 March 2017 (UTC)socialistboyy

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. I am glad to see that you are discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:MPLA are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic or unrelated topics.

Did you try it ? --Itu (talk) 10:16, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

No, sorry. Couldn't really figure it out. Alex of Canada (talk) 20:17, 10 September 2017 (UTC)Alex of Canada

Updating climate charts[edit]

Thanks for updating the climate charts like you have been. When you do update climate charts, please make sure all of the data on the chart comes from the same station. For example, on the Salt Spring Island chart I noticed you updated some figures but didn't change the extreme temperatures which were from a different station on the island. Also if you add a new record high into the chart please be sure to add a reference for it from the daily data for that station. Thanks a lot! Air.light (talk) 00:38, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. Will do. It should be noted I won't be on for a while, as I'm going on vacation tomorrow. Alex of Canada (talk) 02:43, 12 September 2017 (UTC)Alex of Canada

Nope, it ain't a prank unfortanely. Peep died of an overdose of xanax x fetanyl. So goddamn sad, the guy is gone too soon and I miss him already--Macadam1 (talk) 20:35, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Shit. I'll probably not be on for a while then. Alex of Canada (talk) 20:48, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Hayman30. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rockstar (Post Malone song), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so!

Clarification[edit]

Hi, the lists that we have that use M6 as inclusion limit were not set by WikiProject Earthquakes (or anyone for that matter). That just came about somehow during the early days of WP. You know how most things developed (or continue to be developed)? People just duplicate what someone else has done. In other words, no consensus was ever established about this issue. I am not even sure which editor was the first one to start that practice :) but I have been active with WP Earthquakes for several years and have put some effort into stopping it. We should not be listing earthquakes that meet some arbitrary minimum magnitude. There's no real reason to. Effects are what should limit whether an event should be listed or not. Dawnseeker2000 01:05, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

I understand. My problem is, deadly earthquakes are rare in Canada, so the list is quite empty only including those. Magnitude 6 earthquakes are quite relevant here when they happen, and are put everywhere on the news. Alex of Canada (talk) 03:01, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
I've opened a discussion on the article's talk page, which is where this should be thrashed out. Mikenorton (talk) 15:41, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Richard B. Spencer shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your 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.
Richard B. Spencer is under WP:1RR, since it is under Discretionary sanctions.

Discuss on the article's talk page. Thank you. Grayfell (talk) 07:21, 19 February 2018 (UTC) Grayfell (talk) 07:21, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Edit war? It was two edits. That's hardly a "war" of any sort Alex of Canada (talk) 07:22, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Again, since the article is under discretionary sanctions, even a single revert is a problem. I strongly recommend you self-revert and resolve this on the talk page first. Grayfell (talk) 07:23, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
I agree. Thanks for the quick reply, I made a discussion on the talk page. Alex of Canada (talk) 07:24, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Did you miss the part about WP:1RR and self-reverting? By self-revert, I mean that you undo the contested edit until this is resolved. Grayfell (talk) 07:28, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 2018 Vienna stabbing[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article 2018 Vienna stabbing has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability, this looks like something you might see on the local news channel. To avoid this possibly going to AfD this should be left up (this template stays for 7 days) for possible article improvement.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

A complaint and two notes of thanks[edit]

First, since it's said too rarely, I see you editing a lot so thanks for all your hard work.

As I'm sure you know by the fact you self-reverted this is not on; don't talk to other editors like that, no matter how frustrated you may get.

With that said, thanks also for realising the need to remove it again. Too many people dig their heels in when they make a mistake.

Happy editing! -- BobTheIP editing as 88.111.218.152 (talk) 22:16, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Consider providing reliable sources to strengthen the page's verifiability.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Albany limousine crash moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Albany limousine crash, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.
