close paraphrasing[edit]

Hi Bukrafil,

The "Views" section you added to the article Efraim Karsh (see: this diff) has some problems with the use and attribution of sources.

For instance, Karsh says:

"there is an overwhelming and incontrovertible body of contemporary evidence - intelligence briefs, captured Arab documents, press reports, personal testimonies and memoirs, and so on and so forth."

Your text says:

"He says there is an overwhelming and incontrovertible body of evidence to back this up, including intelligence briefs, captured Arab documents, press reports, personal testimonies and memoirs."

If you're going to use someone else's words, you need to put them in quotation marks to indicate that it is a quote. Alternatively, you can rephrase what the original author said. I'd recommend reading Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing for more detailed guidance.

Disambiguation link notification for November 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Yissum Research Development Company of the Hebrew University, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Merck (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.

March 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Yissum Research Development Company of the Hebrew University, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, or giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your removal of this template does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Thank you. Nomoskedasticity (talk) 08:51, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

To enforce an arbitration decision, and for casting aspersions about another editor (he has quite a bit of nerve lodging complaints against someone for doing what he does himself) after I explicitly warned all contributors that doing so would result in a block on the page WP:AE, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and then appeal your block using the instructions there.

Reminder to administrators: In March 2010, ArbCom adopted a procedure prohibiting administrators "from reversing or overturning (explicitly or in substance) any action taken by another administrator pursuant to the terms of an active arbitration remedy, and explicitly noted as being taken to enforce said remedy, except: (a) with the written authorization of the Committee, or (b) following a clear, substantial, and active consensus of uninvolved editors at a community discussion noticeboard (such as WP:AN or WP:ANI). If consensus in such discussions is hard to judge or unclear, the parties should submit a request for clarification on the proper page." Administrators who reverse an arbitration enforcement block, such as this one, without clear authorisation will be summarily desysopped.

As an addendum, if you wish to file a request at AE concerning IRISZOOM, please do so once this block has expired. As long as you provide evidence for your claims, I will defend you as I have him, and I will block anybody who seeks to cast aspersions on you, and of course, if your complaint has merit, I will sanction IRISZOOM.

Your use of multiple Wikipedia accounts[edit]

Hi. An editor has opened an investigation into sockpuppetry by you. Sockpuppetry is the use of more than one Wikipedia account in a manner that contravenes community policy. The investigation is being held at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Gilabrand, where the editor who opened the investigation has presented their evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to investigations, and then feel free to offer your own evidence or to submit comments that you wish to be considered by the Wikipedia administrator who decides the result of the investigation. If you have been using multiple accounts (in a manner contrary to Wikipedia policy), please go to the investigation page and verify that now. Leniency is usually shown to those who promise not to do so again, or who did so unwittingly, but the abuse of multiple accounts is taken very seriously by the Wikipedia community.
