Suppression of edits[edit]

Re:2008 PHS[edit]

Because seasons are more often classified by name storms. But, I had forgotten that NHC considers it below average, so I guess you were right. YE Pacific Hurricane 20:54, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

We don't base those decisions on how it looks. We don't know if a "staff writer" wrote it. YE Pacific Hurricane 06:11, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Staff writer as author[edit]

Is there a tool named twikle on wikipedia because i read about it after rumaging through other peoples contributions and how do i turn it On??? BlueTropicalWave (Talk) 07:13, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

There is a tool called Twinkle. I've used it many times. It add commands that let you welcome other newer users, and revert vandalism. You can turn it on by going to preferences, and then going to gadgets. --I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 08:22, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi BlueTropicalWave, I have unfortunately had to suppress some of your edits because they reveal too much personally identifiable information about you. We have a policy of protecting editors' safety by hiding such information if they share it. I'm really sorry about having to suppress your edits, and I know it's annoying, but it's for the best. Please don't re-add the information. For some useful information on privacy and safety, you can take a look at Wikipedia:Guidance for younger editors and Wikipedia:On privacy, confidentiality and discretion. Thanks, and sorry for messing about with your pages! A fluffernutter is a sandwich! (talk) 15:39, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Hurricane Lidia (1993)[edit]

The reason why I revert the fixes you made was because they were not good. you removed non-breaking spaces, played with images, and changed the references, and made the death total in the infobox less specific. In all, can you please stop playing with GA's and instead write an article yourself? YE Pacific Hurricane 01:16, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

What should i write about i dnt kno. BlueTropicalWave (Talk) 01:23, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
See WP:WPTC/R for suggestions. YE Pacific Hurricane 02:34, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. 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.

Why are you editing Lidia's article so much. It's good already. YE Pacific Hurricane 16:03, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
