Questions? Comments? Advice? Talk to me.

Hello! Welcome to my talk page!

Please feel free to to leave me a message, whether it's informing me of something I screwed up, just to say hello, or anything else! I won't WP:BITE!

I have a few requests that I hope you'll respect while posting here:

  1. First and above all, be civil.
    • If you don't agree with an action I made—be it reverted you and left a warning, marked your page for deletion, or anything else—please be calm and polite. I am a reasonable man, and we'll straighten it out a lot quicker without screaming and name calling.
  2. Please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~)
  3. Please start new conversations at the bottom.
  4. I generally like to keep conversations together.
    • If you post here, I'll reply here and leave you a message informing you of my reply.
    • If I leave you a message on your talk page, I'll keep watching it, but if you want to make sure I notice it quickly, leave me a {{talkback}} template (although not necessary).
      • I'll admit, I don't always keep conversations together, although I try to. If we separate the messages, no big deal, I'll probably go back and cross post here.

Since that is out of the way, please click here and leave a message!

Talk Page[edit]

Since I help out a lot of times here (which I hope is okay), if you're not already watching my user space, you're more than welcome to answer queries on my talk page if you have some time and think you can answer them, especially after some drama a while back here (it was more than just that, obviously), where having an uninvolved voice could really come in handy. Amaury (talk) 01:30, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

@Amaury: Of course it's okay, all input is welcome here :) Yep, I still have it watchlisted and do check it from time-to-time. Much of the time, especially when it's TV related, I can't add much to the conversation. It's out of my realm of expertise, both the actual subject matter and how WP handles it (at least in the past, I know that policies and guidelines were often overlooked in that area to say the least). I might try to chime in when there is something that I can add though :) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:58, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

External LInks[edit]

Hi, In reviewing the various External Links I noted that other sites are allowed their links. We are a legitimate resource as all of the other 3rd party sites. Why is my link inappropriate, while the others are accepted? Thanks for your time. Spring5409 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spring5409 (talkcontribs) 12:26, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

@Spring5409: Hello. Up to this point, every one of your edits has been to add that link. This edit seems to confirm that you are here to add that link instead of being here to build an encyclopedia. The external links in those articles do appear to need more scrutiny, and many should likely be removed as well. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 13:14, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

" The external links in those articles do appear to need more scrutiny, and many should likely be removed as well" Fair enough. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spring5409 (talkcontribs) 14:41, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

@Spring5409: No problem. Unfortunately, Wikipedia attracts a lot of unwanted external links and, especially on articles that have few editors watching, a lot slip through the cracks and stick around for a long time. When I get home, I will try to go through a couple of those articles. Thanks for understanding. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 14:49, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

No worries. ICD-10 is an interesting topic. It's "hot" right now, because all clinicians in USA have to transition from ICD-9 code set (approx 16k codes) to ICD-10 code set (approx 60k codes) as of Oct 1 2015. I will say all of those 3rd party links, as well as ours, do provide a needed resource to the doctors. Most of us added value to the official (CMS) provided files to help the doctors codify their diagnosis for billing purposes. That's why we see ourselves as useful links that add to the wiki. You can use our tool to lookup and see the official coding rules for diagnosis such as diabetes, as a simple example. The doctors have their hands full this month (launch is Oct 1) to use totally different codes with different definitions and rules. We help with that. Hope this info helps as you review the value of the external links. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spring5409 (talkcontribs) 17:48, 1 October 2015 (UTC)


Hope you remembered your manual clocks today! Backward one hour. Amaury (talk) 20:00, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

@Amaury: :) Thanks, I just did that a few minutes ago, but appreciate the reminder none-the-less. Personally, I wish that they would just do away with daylight savings time... It messes with my internal clock too much :) Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 20:07, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
I've been up since 5:00 AM because I've become used to waking up at that "time" for college (it's actually 6:00 AM). I don't personally mind it, though. Extra hour of sleep when we go back; more afternoon fun when we go forward. It takes me, at most, a week to get used to it, personally. Amaury (talk) 20:17, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

No heading[edit]

Why did you revert my edit on Genius, mate? There was no reason for you to do that. Is there a thing on this site that i can report people on? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrossey (talkcontribs) 01:13, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

@Patrossey: Because your content was not backed by reliable, third party sources. Additionally, it seems that you have an interest in adding Patrick Rossey to Wikipedia. You also did this in this edit to Gazebo, which was completely irrelevant to the article. Self-promotion is not allowed at Wikipedia. Article talk pages are the best place to discuss content disputes. WP:DR explains more about dispute resolution. WP:ANI is a place for "reporting" people; however, I would not advise you to pursue this avenue, as it does not handle content disputes and WP:BOOMERANGs can happen. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:19, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

You shouldn't have done that

Why did you revert my edit on Genius, mate? There was no reason for you to do that whatsoever. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrossey (talkcontribs) 01:21, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

@Patrossey: I just explained this. You might need to read WP:5P to get an idea of Wikipedia's mission. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:23, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Changed it. Don't revert it straight away if you don't like it. Just tell me if its not okay first — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrossey (talkcontribs) 01:28, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Patrossey: That's not how it works. You must provide proper and reliable sources; otherwise, your edits are pretty much guaranteed to be reverted. At that point, the onus is on you, not the person who reverted. Amaury (talk) 01:31, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict)@Patrossey: Please discuss on the talk page instead of edit warring. There is a guideline called the bold, revert, discuss cycle. If you make a bold edit and are reverted, you discuss it instead of reverting back. Users who use a feature alot is not a notable addition. Basically, if your edit includes your own name, you are not editing for the right reasons. If the edits includes usernames of forum buddies, you are not editing for the right reasons. This is an encyclopedia, not a fan site. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:36, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

It's how it should work, you passive aggressive prick. I've made new users for Wikipedia and started to fuck around on it, so get ready for a world of pain dude

But i'm a big part of the Genius website. There's no problem in saying that i'm an editor and do a lot of work with Sports Genius (or should I say 'alot' like you do, you illiterate motherfucker)

@Patrossey: Can you confirm it using reliable, third party sources? Without those, it is pure WP:FANCRUFT. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:47, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes i can prove it is a reliable source. How can I prove it without you reverting and deleting my edits? the sources were from the website I was talking about, what more do you want? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrossey (talkcontribs) 01:49, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

@Patrossey: We need a third party, reliable source. That means someone not involved with the website needs to have written about it and have it published in a source with a history of fact checking. If you provide sources on the talk page, then we could discuss it. If there are third party, reliable sources, then we can work it in. If there are none, then it has no place in an encyclopedia. Apparition11 Complaints/Mistakes 01:53, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Is this a reliable third party website? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Patrossey (talkcontribs) 02:53, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

@Patrossey: As long as you don't throw in the examples of users who use it or your own research and stick to summarizing source, then yes, it is definitely a third party, reliable source. The content added needs to be verified using the source. If you propose the text that you want to include at Talk:Genius (website), we can integrate it.
