Disambiguation link notification for March 5

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited History of the Jews in Russia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington Heights (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Rocky Williform

Hi. I found out the you have edited the article. Just wondering why you keep changing the lead paragraph description from 'American Entrepreneur and political activist' to 'Investment Banker, businessman, and activist'? He is not an investment banker, well... in the past he was one. But, I think it would be best not to include it anymore since it does not reflect the occupation of the person. Thanks! :) --AR E N Z O Y 1 6At a l k 14:24, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

All right then, since I have to respect the Wikipedia's lead paragraph policy, We'll keep it at entrepreneur and activist then. Backendgaming (talk) 20:56, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Was there some reason for this removal that I am missing? The subject is most certainly both African-American and a writer; I can't seem to understand what is inappropriate about this category designation. Could you explain? I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 20:09, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Certainly wasn't a removal, I moved it to a more precise category, hence "Category:African-American non-fiction writers" instead of the former child category "Category:African-American writers".Backendgaming (talk) 20:12, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Ah, well, the edit above only showed the removal, and with all the categories there, it was difficult to see the move you discussed. I've reverted it back to your version. I, Jethrobot drop me a line (note: not a bot!) 20:18, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

December 2013

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Celebrity, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.

You have previously removed relevant content from the article with edit summaries that indicate that you believe that the Celebrity article should not include celebrities from non-Western countries. That is a misunderstanding of the article's subject. Celebrities exist in all (or most) cultures and the article is not about Western or Anglo celebrities, but about the concept in general. In order to counter systemic bias, which is extremely important, it is vital that images of celebrities from outside the Western (and English speaking) world be included in the article. If you disagree, please discuss on the article's talk page before you remove the images again. Thank you. bonadea contributions talk 22:01, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Trump Productions

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Trump Productions has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Mostly a Ad. References don't have any Secondary Sources.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Mariah Carey

Backend, you really should stop adding improper content to the above article. You are continuously pushing some artists as associated acts based on your own whim, but that is not how Wikipedia works. More than two editors have been reverting your addition so that must be reason enough for you to pay attention. Please raise a discussion on the talk page and gain consensus of this addition before even attempting to add it again. You are under violation of three revert rule already and any revert will be reported and lead you to get blocked. Again, go to the talk page. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:04, 16 June 2014 (UTC)


Clearly, there are other artists she is associated with that just as important as Jermaine Dupri. And I'm not pushing when the respective artists clearly had an impact throughout her entire career.Backendgaming (talk) 05:06, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Again, there are editors who have reverted you continuously. Yes you are agenda pushing these artists and in the politest way possible, either discuss and gain consensus, else get blocked. Now go and pick. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:07, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Definitely not pushing an agenda of any sort here. Just wanted add some extra notable information. I opened a new talk page section to discuss the reverts and like I said last time, go to the infobox section of the other articles of the associated acts I added. They are clearly notable. Backendgaming (talk) 05:11, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Editors including myself have responded on the talk page. Please explain your points with third party sources. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:35, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

User talk:187.17.52.174

Leave it be: not your talk page. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 02:19, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Nvm, seems like a lot of tension on that page. I'll stay out of this. Backendgaming (talk) 02:20, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Why did you even bother to revert my edit to my talk page? You thought it would help what, exactly, and how? When you said "You're obviously violating blanking rules", were you being deliberately dishonest or were you simply ignorant about what those rules are? 187.17.52.174 (talk) 02:37, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Not being ignorant of the rules at as I simply jumped in and didn't realize what was going on as I saw a tension building between you and several other editors. Backendgaming (talk) 02:40, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
So, you knew that the rules say "Users may freely remove comments from their own talk pages". Your edit summary must then have been deliberately dishonest. Did you really imagine that doing what you did would reduce the tension you saw, or were you just joining in the attacks on me for the fun of it? I am genuinely interested in your thinking and appreciate your responses. 187.17.52.174 (talk) 02:51, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Like I said earlier, I jumped in abruptly from the recent pages portal as I didn't realize what was going between you and the other editors. I admit the edit summary was dishonest as I initially thought the blanking was inappropriate and I initially perceived it as vandalism or disruptive per WP:DISRUPTSIGNS. Backendgaming (talk) 02:57, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
I can't see which parts of WP:DISRUPTSIGNS you thought might apply. I do see that you were trying to be helpful, but I think that trying to apply rules when you don't know what they are is not likely to be productive. People here like to have fun with IP editors - they like to throw rocks at them, provoke an angry response and then attack them repeatedly and sanctimoniously for getting angry. I thus assumed you were joining in with this behaviour.
Please see WP:INDENT by the way. Failing to indent your comments makes discussions needlessly hard to follow. 187.17.52.174 (talk) 03:23, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
I'll be more careful next time I arrive to revert user talk pages. I initially regarded it inappropriate blanking per Wikipedia:User pages#Removal of comments, notices, and warnings, not WP:DISRUPTSIGNS as I wrote in my previous message. And I did not join in the verbal quarrels on your talk page and mingle with the other editors to provoke any response nor did I nonchalantly want to exhibit any sort of sanctimonious behavior of any sort. For the previous blank, I apologize for my mishap as I initially didn't realize the reason and the overall legitimacy of the blanking until another editor reverted mine. Backendgaming (talk) 03:43, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Glad to have sorted this out amicably. Thank you again for your responses and your willingness to have a civil chat with a short-tempered anonymous editor. I know of a lot of people who should strive to follow your example. Happy editing. 187.17.52.174 (talk) 03:54, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

I made a mistake on the Finger Lakes AVA page which you (fairly) reverted. Did you also revert the other changes I made today? I just checked, and several hours of my work has been undone. The polite version is to say that "I'm a little hurt". I'm still quite new to Wiki, and that's really not a pleasant early experience. Jeeves79 (talk) 05:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

No problem, I only reverted your changes to Finger Lakes. The others reverts were made by User:Discospinster according to your edit history.Backendgaming (talk) 05:05, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/User talk:220.255.1.27

Hello. For the simple vandalism you reported in that case, the best venue would have been WP:AIV rather than SPI. Those IP addresses can change frequently, so it's not really a case of sockpuppetry, but they have been blocked by other admins for the vandalism. Best ​—DoRD (talk)​ 14:53, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Stevens Point Area Senior High School

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Stevens Point Area Senior High School: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. This is becoming a nusience, this guy adding this name over and over...don't you agree? The problem is, since you have not been warning him when reverting his vandalism, it is going to be hard to report him to WP:AIV. Consider using WP:TWINKLE. it automates the process and makes things much simpler. John from Idegon (talk) 22:31, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll take your suggestion and look into it. Backendgaming (talk) 03:28, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Niyogi

your version looks like totally biased, may i know your details and how you are to tell others, noyogis came through satavahans earlier there were no brahmans in south india and noyogis do practice preist hood and later in course of time they concentrated on administration and niyogis don't know who are bhumiharis.

follows rig veda and sukla-yejur veda. for time being i am making some modifications later i will change the whole. prathamasaka niyogis do found in maharastra and UP and M.P parts of india — Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.133.58.23 (talk) 02:35, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

How am I biased against your article considering the fact that you are adding unsourced information and your POV personal analysis. The previous information was well sourced and you keep pushing your POV agenda toward the article and accuse of bias. Any further beef with me is going get you blocked.

yes, you made blatant mistake, you mention your sources — Preceding unsigned comment added by Truthprevailsforever (talkcontribs) 06:20, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't need to since the article is of no interest to me but seeing from your previous edits you clearly contravene Wikpedia policy of adding unsourced material. I can easily retrieve plenty of third party sources from different media streams across the internet at my fingertips but I have no interest. I'm no expert on the article but you're the one who keeps adding uncited material to the it. It's your responsibility to supply the third party sources as you're the one who keeps adding all the unsubstantiated claims. Keep adding uncited material, get reverted, and have yourself blocked by an admin. Backendgaming (talk) 06:36, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

can you come out of that disguised way, we will discuss and i think there is no authenticity in your rhetoric. whats your sources — Preceding unsigned comment added by Truthprevailsforever (talkcontribs) 06:31, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm just a patroller, not the babysitter for the material you keep adding to the article. Resolve the dispute with another editor that has more expertise with the article. Backendgaming (talk) 06:38, 4 July 2014 (UTC)


in the below references nothing was specified that these are of bhumiharis or dravida like that you may pick at finger tips then go head but mention the source. you neither belong to that community then how would you know the things. come to public or otherwise go to the temple and ask the priest — Preceding unsigned comment added by Truthprevailsforever (talkcontribs) 06:48, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I meant I can easily find reliable third party sources at my fingertips to substantiate the expansion of article material. The previous material was added by other users, not me. I revert unsubstantiated claims without reliable sources and you have been doing just that. I have no desire to do so as the article is of no interest to me. Resolve your dispute with another user and supply sources to prevent from being reverted. Backendgaming (talk) 06:53, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

how can you judge it is reliable or not and under what circumstances, your are hurting religious feelings.

Under any circumstance when one is unable to provide a third party reliable source to back up their claim. More religious feelings will be hurt if such claims so unsubstantiated.

Admin shopping

Hi Backendgaming. It is not necessary - not is it considered particularly good practice - to make individual requests to multiple administrators for administrative action. The best place to alert admins to a problem is th appropriate noticeboard - if you go to the main admin noticeboard you will see a box at the top listing all of the boards on which you can post. Vandalism gets reported at AIV, edit warring at EWN, username issues at UAA and so on.

Messaging multiple administrators about the same issue is regarded as a form of forum shopping, and is not helpful in fostering a consensus-based editing environment. Whilst you are welcome to contact individual administrators about issues or events you feel they may have a particular insight into, once you have done so there is no need to go elsewhere to report the same thing (save, perhaps, to the appropriate board).

How can you be so sure of the veracity regarding your personal POV pushing agenda? You're the one who keeps removing well sourced information already added into article despite the fact you have no have no reliable third party source that backs up your claim. You already got reverted by three different editors already. Backendgaming (talk) 03:15, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, i dont know how to use this. :, basically the article is wrong. girlicious has never been or developed into girls united. they are two seperate groups. basically nichole cordova left to start a new group, called girls united who auditioned for the x factor. they have no affiliation with robin antin(owner and creator of girlicious) or their management.

just because nichole started a new group does not mean that the new group is girlicious. check both nichole's and girls united instagram, nichole is no longer part of girls united, therefore any information in regards to girls united must be removed from this page.

once again i am sorry for my ignorance on how to use this, truth is i have nothing to do with my time since im on summer holidays but my information is accurate.

please consider correcting the information on this page.

kind regards.

--Matt.c.edward (talk) 03:24, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Giving other editor's warnings

Hi there,

In future, could you perhaps not spam another editor's talk page with 'final warnings'? If you have to give them a final warning, please come and find an administrator, as there's really only one place you can go to after 'final'. It makes the warning more effective too.

Thank you! Happy editing. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 22:22, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I've seen you're doing it to the user above too. Please especially don't do this to a user whose inappropriate conduct is aimed at you. That's the clearest conflict of interest that ever did live. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 22:25, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Warning re: violation of WP:3RR rule

I just wanted to let you know that I've posted a warning of your violation of the "three edit rule" to the following article talk page: Talk:Arnold_Chan#Warning re: violation of 3RR rule. Cheers. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:00, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

This is clearly your violation since you been reverted by me more than 3 times without reaching a clear consensus and considering the fact you got into another edit war with another editor. Backendgaming (talk) 02:02, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Nope - first, whatever edit war I had with another editor ended last week and achieved a resolution prior to reaching the 4th revert, so that's irrelevant to the current discussion. Second, you reverted the exact same edit four times consecutively without even attempting to reach a consensus on the talk page. And you're the one who initiated the reversions, not me - so if you disagreed, then it's incumbent upon you to initiate the consensus-building process. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:07, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

I think your previous edit war is relevant to this current discussion considering the fact you clearly have a POV pushing agenda, and no, you never reached any final consensus with the previous editor. I checked the article edit history. Check the article edit history again, you were one who started reverting my edit yesterday. Now with your "ethnic Chinese" pushing agenda, I already explained my reasons for my revert and initiated a consensus-building process though the Chinese surname romanization assertion, which clearly your POV pushing logic is flawed. If the subject's surname was Chen, then it the subject would considered of ethnic Chinese descent or even Taiwanese descent. Go and read the article and look at the Cantonese Romanization standards, you can easily see why I reverted and your logic is flawed. Backendgaming (talk) 02:12, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

  1. "I think your previous edit war is relevant to this current discussion considering the fact you clearly have a POV pushing agenda, and no, you never reached any final consensus with the previous editor." - first, I have no idea what you mean by "POV pushing" agenda. Second, a consensus was reached - while it's true that I still disagree with the other editor's rationale (which is my prerogative), I have let the matter go and have not made any further edits to the article in that regard, and will not be doing so unless a consensus supporting my original position is reached. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:30, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
  2. "Check the article edit history, you were one who started reverting my edit yesterday" - I don't know what you're talking about. The only edits I performed on the Arnold Chan page yesterday were: [1] and [2] BOTH of which added content, but did not either remove or change any other content to that page. In fact, the first reversion was yours: [3] by changing my prior addition of "Category:Canadians of Chinese descent". -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:30, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
  3. "I already explained my reasons for my revert and initiated a consensus-building process though the Chinese surname romanization assertion" - Really? I didn't see any talk page activity. All you did was put your reasoning in the Edit summary, which doesn't leave me any room to discuss my concerns except by another edit. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:30, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
- So why didn't you? All you did was report me in the talk page. You did nothing else to help with the consensus building. Backendgaming (talk) 02:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
"So why didn't you?" - first of all, I explained my reasoning in my edit summaries, which is what you were doing as well ... and second, because if I'd continued to revert, then I would also have been in technical violation of the three revert rule, but I stopped because you reached that threshold first. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 04:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
"All you did was report me in the talk page" - which I only did after you reported me for "vandalizing" the article (didn't think I would notice that, did you?). In fact, you're lucky that I didn't file an Administrator report of your 3RR violation, which I would have been within my rights to do. I would have happily engaged you on a talk page (either this page, my page, or the article's talk page preferably) if you'd started a discussion therefore before hitting the 4th reversion. I also note that you had no real desire to "discuss" this until I had pointed out your violation and you were in danger of being sanctioned for that violation. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 04:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
  1. "If the subject's surname was Chen, then it the subject would considered of ethnic Chinese descent or even Taiwanese descent. Go and read the article and look at the Cantonese Romanization standards, you can easily see why I reverted." -- that's irrelevant, because the Romanization of "Chan" vs. "Chen" is based on dialect concerns, and not whether the subject hails from Hong Kong or the Mainland, because Chinese people with ancestry from the Guangdong province of Mainland China speak the same dialect as those from Hong Kong, i.e. Cantonese. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 02:30, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
- Just because there are dialect concerns doesn't mean the Romanization standards doesn't mean they play a significant role. They are the same between the two regions. Chan is widely used throughout Hong Kong regardless if one's ancestry comes from Guangdong, Zhejiang, or Shanghai while the Mainland equivalent is Chen. See MOS:ROMANIZATION. Backendgaming (talk) 02:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
"See MOS:ROMANIZATION" - if you really understood the point of the Manual of Style, then you'd realize that the purpose of MOS:Romanization is to provide guidance on how to render names that are not originally in a Latin-script alphabet into English. However, the spelling of Chan's name in English is not in question. What MOS:Romanization is not meant to do is to be used as "proof" of a person's ethnic or geographic origin. I would also note that your attempt to do so could be considered a case of WP:NOR. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 04:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Though I still prefer sticking to the specifics and the proper Romanization standards, I reverted to Chinese descent for now as there isn't any relevannt information at the moment regarding the ancestral origins based on several searches across the net. Backendgaming (talk) 02:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Now we're talking. Honestly, if I knew for certain that Chan's family is originally from Hong Kong (i.e. I could find a verifiable source for it), then I wouldn't have stepped in when you reverted my edit - heck, I would probably have gone with "Category:Canadians of Hong Kong descent" right from the start. Keep in mind that since "Hong Kong descent" is a subset of "Chinese descent", it's not wrong to use the latter category, but it may very well be wrong to use the former. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 04:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Good morning. I just wanted to let you know that the vandalism report you filed against me yesterday has been adjudicated and rejected. Cheers. -- 24.212.139.20 (talk) 15:31, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Arnold Chan shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

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. 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.
I understand that you're just trying to correct an errant IP editor, I really do, and you have my sympathies - but edit warring is unproductive. Please allow other users to wade in or use the talk page to discuss this. PanydThe muffin is not subtle 15:36, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

When does having Marxist radical parents and uncles NOT make one a scion of the ULTRA left-wing, as opposed to, say, left-wing (e.g., progressive/liberal Democrat)? Can you get much further to the left than this, or do you need to be related to Lenin, Trotsky, Marx, Mao or Stalin to make it into the Ultra-left? I also re-added the snippet on his adoptive parents being members of the Weather Underground, as there's absolutely nothing POV about that unless, maybe, you are wishing to minimize the association. One has to wonder what kind of person will result growing up having only been exposed to violent, convicted violent criminal radicals for their entire upbringing, but that's definitely speculation on my part. --74.215.242.83 (talk) 09:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Lake Michigan

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Lake Michigan. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. -- Diannaa (talk) 02:01, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Why target me? Edit warring or whatever you want to call it, I'm absolving myself from any further escalation of tension on that article. Backendgaming (talk) 02:08, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations, you have survived! You are not being "targeted". It's just that you exceeded 3RR. There are many edit wars on Wikipedia and being a-retentive about 3RR is sometimes the only way to stop them. I would strongly suggest reading wp:EW and the WP:3RR subsection. Caulk it up to a learning experience. 3RR can bite. I was blocked once for repeated vandalism reverting, though the block was lifted after my explanation. I probably should have been blocked several other times (well, maybe numerous times). Using Huggle and many reverts, one can lose track of the number of reverts made to a specific article. Good reading: WP:BOOMERANG aka WP:PETARD, aka WP:OUCH and others. Commonly cited, so there are many shortcuts. I like the expression Hoist with his own petard That would have been a description of your fate had you been blocked. Being blocked isn't the end of the world. Being blocked repeatedly for the same thing might be. There have been whoopsies: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/block&page=User%3AMean+as+custard Mean] You can find if a user has been blocked by going to their contributions page and clicking the block log. Learn and enjoy! Jim1138 (talk) 07:44, 22 July 2014 (UTC)


I'll be aware of this. Lot's of stuff to read through but I'll definitely keep the 3RR in mind more strictly in the future. Backendgaming (talk) 08:12, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at The Social Network. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus.

Categories and puffery

Hey, could you be more careful about the wording of some your edits? Like on JYP Entertainment's page, your addition seemed to lend no more information than was already held in the "one of the three biggest entertainment companies" statement and seemed only to encourage a biased point of view. Similarly, listing Krystal Jung in categories for South Korean pianists and American pianists is not helpful as it incorrectly identifies her: yeah she may play piano, but not professionally. She has never released a piano work. Neither is she a film actress: she "played" herself in a staged documentary. That hardly qualifies. So if you could just be a little more circumspect about some of your edits, I would really appreciate it. Asdklf; (talk) 17:07, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

I'll be more circumspect when it comes to category placement as I thought Krystal was actually considered a "pianist" due to her usage of the instrument but initially didn't check the article thoroughly enough. With regards to previously added statement in the JYP Entertainment article, I'll be more descriptive next time when it comes to adding so-called puffery that was intended for the JYP Entertainment page as both the [YG Entertainment]] and S.M. Entertainment have the "Big Three" statement. Backendgaming (talk) 19:12, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

G-Dragon

Hi! You removed Category:South Korean hip hop musicians from G-Dragon's article. He started his career as a hip hop artist, way before Bigbang debuted as a boy band. His solo albums have hiphop tracks, his solo EP One of a Kind is a hiphop album. He is not a "one time" collaborator in hip hop. [4] Teemeah 편지 (letter) 10:20, 14 January 2015 (UTC)


Ever heard of something called WP:SUBCAT? I don't dispute the fact that G-Dragon is a "hip hop musician", but what classification of a hip hop musician is he? There are a handful of classifications for hip hop musicians across Wikipedia including record producers, beatboxers, hip hop singers, DJ's and rappers. Since I already saw Category:South Korean male rappers in the article, it's redundant to add Category:South Korean hip hop musicians since subcategory Category:South Korean male rappers is a subcategory of Category:South Korean rappers‎ which in turn is a subcategory of Category:South Korean hip hop musicians. Go into the category links and read WP:SUBCAT on why I removed Category:South Korean hip hop musicians from the G-Dragon article.

In addition, the "one time" collaboration statement was referring to the associated acts section in the article infobox, not G-Dragon himself as a one time collaborator. Musicians like Skillrex, Diplo, Flo-Rida, and Missy Elliot that he collaborated with do not qualify as associated acts since he only collaborated with those respective artists only once, hence my previous edit statement "one-time

collaborations". Backendgaming (talk) 11:38, 14 January 2015 (UTC)


4Minute edits

I trimmed down the edits regarding 4Minute's latest album regarding the Youtube views for music videos would need some more notability beyond Allkpop/Soompi blogs. That it had several million views in China would also need some context - is it a big deal that a video there has that many views? It might be better to show reception of the EP and singles in charts. -AngusWOOF (talk) 17:57, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Sunny

According to the Birthright citizenship in the United States article, Sunny is in fact, born American. Another thing is that Sunny's Birth Index indicate she was born in Orange County, California, which makes Sunny an American by birthright. And there are no sources available which suggest she is South Korean either. Feel free to talk to me about it if you can find any reliable sources which back up that Sunny is South Korean, rather than American. Thanks! Tibbydibby (talk) 20:03, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Nichkhun's wikipedia

Hi, first of all why did you undo the edits? Nichkhun revealed that he is ethnically full chinese during his interview with Youku. He also revealed that both his parents are chinese that holds Thai nationality. He quoted this by saying : " I was born in the states, but i'm from Thailand. My parents are Chinese , they were born in Thailand. " He also said that his paternal grandfather is a Chinese but was born in Thailand via Happy Camp.

It's already revealed and cited. There's no need to add further information. Second of all, He's American first by adhering to Wikipedia WP:MOS guidelines, that's has birthright and has been already revealed for the fact that he was born in Los Angeles. Backendgaming (talk) 00:56, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Isnt the reason why wikipedia is created is to ensure people that the informations are well detailed and explained? I would understand if you undid my edits because they were false informations about him. But these are facts that Nichkhun himself stated. Secondly, he was not born in L.A. He was born in Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States. That is what i call false information and you didnt undo it instead undid mine which are real and based informations.

According to this citation, http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=2917529 he was born in L.A. The facts are already stated in the article regarding his ancestry but there is no need to dedicate an entire section of his article towards his ancestral origins. As I said before, we need to comply with Wikipedia's guidelines and rules relating to WP:EXCESSDETAIL and WP:DHTM from adding excessive information relating to his ancestry. Backendgaming (talk) 01:09, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

if you type "Nichkhun Birth Place " you'd also get the same answer(Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States), and if you've watched him on Korean variety shows he mentioned a few times that he was born in Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States, he has never mentioned being born in L.A . Also, if you dont mind can i add back the information about him being fully chinese ethnically? I am not chinese but dont you think its misleading when most people assume he's full Thai when in the matter of fact he's not. His ancestors are chinese, having said that his grandfather , a full chinese was born in Thailand, while his grandma is from China. His mother's parents are both from China and immigrated to Thailand. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.164.82.59 (talk) 01:26, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I did a Google search relating to his birthplace and most sites say Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States. I'll change that to Rancho Cucamonga, California with a new citation in place. Regarding his ancestry, he's of Chinese extraction but it's best to acknowledge he has ties and connections to Thailand as well considering the fact he has family there and even studied there during his youth. I suggest instead of adding "Fully Chinese Ethnically", I'll add Thai with ancestral roots from China instead since his parents and grandparents pretty much are from Thailand and Nickhun himself was born in the United States. We cannot just acknowledge his connection to his Chinese ancestry but his connection to Thailand and the United States as well. Backendgaming (talk) 01:30, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I've seen the edits. However, Nichkhun's paternal grandmother isnt "Thai wih ancestral roots from China" , Nichkhun stated that his paternal grandmother is Chinese ( citizenship and ethnically ) . Like most korean sites , the information regarding his ancestry is written as  : " Nichkhun is ethnically Chinese with ancestral roots from Hainan, China and Guangzhou, China. He however can be considered as Thai-Chinese as both of his parents were born in Thailand. Thus, his origin is both China and Thailand. " i highly recommend it to be written like that as well. What are your thoughts? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.164.83.200 (talk) 02:04, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

I'll make the changes regrading his paternal grandmother being Chinese and I'll change the ancestral origins of his parents to Thai Chinese instead to avoid any misconception of his parents being native Thais. My thoughts on Nichkhun would be putting him as American with his origin being both Chinese and Thai descent since he has born in the United States and has spent a considerable amount of his early life there and attributing the fact he has Chinese ancestry and roots in Thailand as well. I changed his ancestry to "ethnic ancestral roots from China" instead of "ethnically Chinese with ancestral roots from Hainan, China and Guangzhou, China" since it pretty much means the same thing but I shortened the sentence to convey his ancestral roots. Backendgaming (talk) 07:37, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

The new edits are great . But theres a mistake though, Nichkhun's maternal grandparents arent Thai Chinese. They are from China as well. His mom stated it during an episod of We Got Married. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.164.87.199 (talk) 08:10, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Those are the last of my edits. Hope the changes satisfy your expectations. Even though Nickhun is of Chinese descent, he was born in the United States and this http://www.soompi.com/2012/02/19/block-bs-controversial-behaviour-in-thailand-outrages-2pm-members/article reveals him self-identifying as Thai as well.

IP sockpuppet tagging

Hi there, I noticed you tagged an IP account as a CheckUser-confirmed sock of a named user. That tag was not correct, as CheckUser evidence is never used to publicly connect a named account to an IP address, due to privacy issues, and the IP was not blocked at the time. I have corrected the tag just now. We appreciate your help and interest, but if you are not sure about this process then tagging sockpuppets is a task best left to SPI clerks. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask on my talk page or at Wikipedia talk:Sockpuppet investigations. Cheers. Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 17:20, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Apologies. I'll be more cautious next time.Backendgaming (talk) 01:09, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Higher education in Japan into Education in Japan. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you.

Information icon Hello, I'm Garchy. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Tissot seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Please do not add "luxury" to specific brands, especially watchmakers. Saying something is "luxury" could be considered original research, as it requires objectivity and cannot be measured.
