How to use Wiki[edit]

How do i edit and create new pages on Wikipedia without them being deleted or me being banned? i want to help SpecialHelper234 (talk) 14:27, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I've put a Welcome message on your talk page. Have a look at the links in it, in particular "How to edit a page" and "How to create your first article". Happy editing! —Bruce1ee 15:20, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requested_articles/music/Performers,_bands_and_songwriters edit[edit]

You deleted my suggested addition of an article Steve Spurgin for lack of reliable third party references. If I had known of reliable 3d party stuff, I'd've gone ahead and written the article. I added this guy (who is referenced in seven other Wiki articles) here in hopes that someone would look for and find reliable information to compose an article. How else should I suggest this?Fitzaubrey (talk) 00:40, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

FAC Closure[edit]

Hi, why did you do this [1]? Graham Beards (talk) 09:04, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't realise you were archiving – your edit summary said "added one". —Bruce1ee 09:06, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
No problem, sorry for the confusing edit summary. Best wishes. Graham Beards (talk) 09:09, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Reverted edit[edit]

I just want to know why you reverted my edit in "October 10" Thanks for your answer Santillago (talk) 12:14, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I reverted your edit here because, the release of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is not a notable enough event for this list (see Wikipedia:Days of the year), and you removed three entries under Births: 1857 – Yusuf Izzettin Efendi; 1959 – Arif Peçenek; and 1994 – Bae Suzy. I don't know if the deletions were intentional, but they had to be reinstated. Feel free to try again, but check your edits before saving by clicking the "Show changes" and "Show preview" buttons. —Bruce1ee 12:43, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Henry Cow edit[edit]

Hi Bruce, I came upon the Henry Cow information a couple of weeks ago. I used to know the band, and am still friends with Dave Attwooll the old drummer. I changed the spelling of his name from Dave Atwood to the correct spelling, and unfortunately you changed it back. No worries, however I will be happy to have Dave get in touch if necessary if that'd help ? Many thanks Bruce Best Tim

I'd love to update the article with the correct spelling of Dave's name, but it needs to be verifiable. I can't find any sources that say his name is spelt "Attwooll" – do you perhaps have any? The Henry Cow article uses this source, and there are several others that also spell his name "Atwood". —Bruce1ee 05:46, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Usman Khan: why reverted?[edit]

May I ask why you reverted me here? You say "no sources" but most of the article requests lack sources. I work mainly on Commons these days, and don't have time to write an article myself, but sources are abundant: Usman Khan has albums on major labels including Columbia, a quick Google search should turn up plenty. - Jmabel | Talk 15:25, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

create a reference to an external page wikipedia[edit]

Greetings, I would like to know how to create a reference to an external page wikipedia, I was doing the tutorial but I could not answer this question. Could you help me? I do not know English, I use the Google translator, excuse meMegatela (talk) 12:52, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

You can place them in the "External links" section of the article (see Wikipedia:External links). If you are citing a source for text in the article, have a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources. I don't know which tutorial you are using, but why don't you use the one in the Wikipedia of your language. —Bruce1ee 13:08, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

yes, it telling and showing the GPS. On toilet or in a forest wherever only I have worked to describe it. I hope, you can approve it.--85.104.180.25 (talk) 12:29, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
I know what it is, but it doesn't improve the satellite article. —Bruce1ee 12:38, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your reversion at July 14[edit]

Bruce1ee, thanks for reverting the edit attributed to me (User:Neonorange) at this article, made on July 16, that rolled back to revision 729828111 by User:198.223.239.133. Given three choices, operator error, software error, and hardware error, I must go with door number one. But I have no idea how I could have created the problem. Thank you for assuming good faith. — {{u|Neonorange]] (Phil) 01:28, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

(PS: I noticed, from your user page, your interest in science fiction. I read C. J. Cherryh's Downbelow Station when it was first published—it's still my favorite of her novels. Neil Stephenson's Seven Eves and William Gibson's The Peripheral are my favorite, recent science fiction novels. — Neonorange (Phil) 01:28, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

No problem – clearly it was an honest mistake. There was a time some years back when the only sf I read was Cherryh, and I've read many of her books. I've read Stephenson's Cryptonomicon and Anathem, but not Seveneves. Maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks. —Bruce1ee 05:06, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requested articles/music/Performers, bands and songwriters[edit]

Jacob Collier - is this source reliable enough ;) https://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/jul/03/jacob-collier-review-ronnie-scotts-jazz-new-messiah

I think there is also a NYT article, or ask Herbie Hancock, David Foster, Quincy Jones

His debut album peaked on #1 itunes jazz in more than 20 countries after a few hours.

So if he gets a Grammy next year and you have no,article - itbshould be embarrasing for wikipedia ;) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eifelochse (talkcontribs) 19:41, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

There already is an artice for Jacob Collier. —Bruce1ee 06:00, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, I have to be blind, perhaps I mistyped in the search field. Have a nice day!

How can you be so stupid? Are you trying to suppress the truth? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.1.124.175 (talk) 09:17, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

I take it you're referring to this edit. I can find nothing linking Wales to Wiccapedia, and besides your edit breaks the {{CURRENT*}} templates. —Bruce1ee 14:29, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
