CatchPhrase celebrity section.[edit]

Hi I just had a question about the CatchPhrase Wikipedia page. Recently, SolomanMckenzie added in a section about the celebrity episodes being broadcast and the winnings. and the like. There recently has been a crackdown on game shows like The Chase UK or Tipping Point Lucky Stars, where certain other uses have deemed episode guides and lists of celebrities to be fancruft and NOTSTATS (you can check the edit histories of both programmes). Even after this has been mentioned on both programmes, users like Soloman McKenzie likes to add in lists of Celebrities or episode guides which do get reverted. Would this section that this user has added be considered fancruft as well? This is an article for Deletion discussion that occured for a similar game show discussing it. any advice would be appreciated. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_Hollywood_Game_Night_episodes184.160.203.195 (talk)samusek2~

Batch file[edit]

Please explain how I can properly add the link to www.BatToExeConverter.com to the batch file page. My compiler is my lives work. It started a software category in 2003 and it adds many useful commands to batch files that cannot be found elseware.

It also allows users to hide their batch file code and add an icon. They can raise code to ADMIN level execution status and embed their company name and copyright/version information in the file properties.


I was also trying to remove the part of the article that contains malicious batch file code in order to prevent ignoarant people sharing malicious code to hard working people. This can cost time and money to thousands of people if it is not removed. Someone could potentionally lose their job or even worst. Why was I blocked from making these changes.

I am new to editing wiki articles but I feel my changes are necessary. Please help me make these changes.

Always here to help.

semir osmanagich[edit]

What I really put are FACTS, which are always OBJECTIVE, because they are true and what is subjective is somebody's opinion... I am open to different opinions and I also included some of negative or critical opinions in a text! I have no problems with that... But, if Your whole text is based on negative opinions or few years old information INSTEAD of facts, maybe because facts include for example this person's success in some area or rewards or so then I wish to ask You: does it mean that "objectivity" in case of Mr Osmanagich for You or for the wiki? is that HAVE to be given exclusively NEGATIVE "information" and opinions about that person? Because it is obvious that ANY positive FACT, not to talk about opinion is not tolerating at all... Or?

Reverted Edits[edit]

Hi Amortias -- My edits that you reverted were intentional. The article in question was a sort of odd amalgam of unrelated content, and I was also attempting to add balanced content on both sides of the debate. Thanks for your vigilance, though!

Fantastic Four reverted edit[edit]

You reverted one of my edits on the fantastic four movie page because I did not have a proper edit summary, I don't really know how to do an edit summary but there is false information on that page, the fault in our stars trailer surpasses xmen days of future past and the fantastic four teaser and official trailer in view count, whatever article they referenced was wrong. But since I don know how to properly edit I was wondering if you could do it, thanks.

IP bans[edit]

IP bans may be the silliest idea ever. IP's are very rarely static and most will change as soon as one power-cycles their router. Much love. - Troy

I agree. IP bans are almost pointless. - Albert Einstein — Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.254.127.154 (talk) 20:12, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Fair point. But this assumes the user only cares about one particular article. 176.254.127.154 (talk) 20:18, 25 June 2015 (UTC) Troy/Albert E.

Please double check the edits I made, they are not spams, please undo the deletion.[edit]

Dear Amortias,

I am user VictorAzure. I received a spam warning from you and now most of my edits of the external link sections are deleted. The reason why I entered all those urls in one day is because I am working for teaching cleveland as a summer job. those urls were from this organization, a non-profit educational organization. Please undo your deletion on my edits. It was all my hard work and I put a lot of effort in it.

You didn't say why the edits shouldn't be considered link spam. I understand it was a lot of work, and that the entity being promoted is educational and non-profit. But that doesn't mean it's not link spam. It looks like your primary goal was to promote the web site, and any thought to improve Wikipedia was non-existent or an afterthought. That's just not what Wikipedia is for. Willondon (talk) 16:44, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't understand. This organization is trying to let people understand history better. I do not see why it is spam by providing users more readings and researches. I enjoy wikipedia very much as a place where I can gain knowledge, and all I am doing is proving others to gain more knowledge. Please Please consider undoing your deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by VictorAzure (talkcontribs) 16:58, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

External links need to be for a specific purpose and not be promotional or with the appearance of advertising. One of our fellow editors has posted some helpful advice on your talk page that would be worth reviewing. When you have revised this then you can consider which I any of the links should be added.

Adminship[edit]

Hi. I do a lot of scouting for potential admin candidates. I couldn't help noticing you've got one of thos 'I want to be an admin' userboxes on your user page. You may wish to read WP:RFAADVICE in its entirety including the footnotes. The page has become the main venue for those seeking advice and as I wrote it, if you have any questions you are welcome to contact me. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 12:31, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I'll give it a good look. Not 4 hours ago I asked WormThatTurned for a review of my contributions with an aim of running (subject to someone nominating me).Amortias (T)(C) 12:34, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Kudpung Read, I have a feeling I've read this before but i read so much stuff on here memory passes. Amortias (T)(C) 14:37, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
And can I get your opinion on admins who arent content creators. I fit in this category quite heavily apart forma spate of copyediting in my infancy before I moved onto primarily anti-vandalism work. Amortias (T)(C) 14:38, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
After reading WP:RFAADVICE, the next step is to read user:Kudpung/RfA criteria. It will tell you all you need to know about why and how I vote and how my RfA votes can somtimes have an important impact on an RfA. If you can check all the boxes there you would probably have a 99.9% chance of passing, especially if you were nominated by people like Worm. Candidates who are weak on providing content are sometimes given a hard time, but they might pass, particularly if they have been around for a few years. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 15:58, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Kudpung Statements above in table. Amortias (T)(C) 18:51, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
I'll be having a look soon Amortias (Some of the tools I use are down, making things difficult). WormTT(talk) 08:41, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Appreciated. Take your time if the bits something that I should have to use it'll come when its ready not before. Amortias (T)(C) 21:08, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Epoch Times[edit]

I did include a source in my edits, which is the book Falun Gong and the Future of China by David Ownby, and I even included a page number (238). In fact, the same book was already being used as a source for several other points on the page. You can check it in the history. Snesbogyi (talk) 12:53, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
