2. please create your own user page so there will be no missunderstanding about sockpuppetry and/or vandalism, show to everybody who you are and that way everything is all clear.--Cap. Mitchel (talk) 02:49, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
You have been accused of sockpuppetry. Please refer to Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Cocoliras for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with notes for the suspect before editing the evidence page. the Dúnadan 17:00, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Stop edit warring
From your edits, you have a history of persistently including edits that add no value in certain sites. Please refrain from trying to force your edits in the Panama City page. The edit that you are trying to force does not belong in the introduction of the article. It seems that you are trying to make the article look more as an advertisement, instead of an encyclopedia--Schonbrunn (talk) 15:46, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Please stop making test edits to Wikipedia, as you did to North America. It is considered vandalism, which, under Wikipedia policy, can lead to blocking of editing privileges. If you would like to experiment again, please use the sandbox. A consensus was achieved at talk:North America, verified by credible sources, that your edits exclude. Also of note, your self-reference to other large central American cities is not acceptable per policy.
- I though that we reached a consensus, I left the message which no one responded, I do agreed with them and left them the message saying what would I do. There's nothing bad about it, if you are against those changes discuss them. But please, do as soon as you can cause I really need to do this quick. Cocoliras (talk) 18:18, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
- No, nothing terribly wrong with it, except that it isn't relevant to the North America article, given that it is mentioned in the page that you linked to. The article mentions the largest cities according to reliable sources, of which none are mentioned in central America.
- And why do you need to do this quick? There needs to be consensus and discussion, which can take time and shouldn't be rushed under any circumstances. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 18:24, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on North America. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions in a content dispute within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. Please revert to the last edit at North America, as you have reverted five times:17:55, 8 January 2008, 13:59, 9 January 2008, 14:38, 9 January 2008, 14:57, 9 January 2008, and 15:22, 9 January 2008. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 18:26, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, it now has a citation that redirects into a reliable source. If that is what you wanted?, if you need me to do another thing, contact me, and forget about that quick thing, its already done. Cocoliras (talk) 18:34, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
- Sorry, that's not a reliable source. You have also edit warred and violated WP:3RR, for which you have been notified of previously. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 18:39, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

- You have been reported to 3RR again, which can be viewed here. I highly suggest that you stop edit warring and discuss your proposed edits on the talk page, for which you have no consensus towards. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 22:37, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Gwernol 23:09, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Cocoliras, please stop trying to force your particular edits into the North America article. It is obvious that you don't have consensus for your proposed changes. Continuing to edit war over this has become disruptive. I have given you an extended block. Please note that when your block expires, you may not immediately start reverting in your change again. You must obtain a valid consensus for these changes; given the current opposition you are going to need to modify your proposed change in order to achieve that. If you continue to revert in your change without consensus you will be blocked on sight for disruption.
Please take the next week to calm down and seek a better approach to your editing. Thanks, Gwernol 23:16, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Not surprisingly, after your block for edit warring at North America, where you were trying to force additions without consensus or even discussion, you have begin anew with the same edits. I will not hesitate to recommend another block if this continues; please seek discussion and if there is consensus, let another editor add in the proposed changes. Seicer (talk) (contribs) 21:13, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
- Please Cocoliras, stop re-inserting your disputed edits into North America. The hatnote you are using is clearly not appropriate, per WP:HATNOTE. It is also disruptive for you to continue to edit war on this article. You are about to be blocked again for disruption. Please stop, please abide by Wikipedia's rules. Thanks, Gwernol 16:40, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
- Regarding the hatnote: the opening paragraph of the article already describes the content of the article. There is no compelling reason to repeat that information elsewhere, that I can see. As for the link, there are two problems. First, Wikipedia articles are not reliable sources that you can use in the North America article. The other is that, as you have noticed ("I tried to explain everyone, but without success") you do not have consensus for your change. Given your history of editing, you seem to be determined to push your own point of view into articles, including North America. This is not the way Wikipedia works. For controversial edits, which yours clearly are, you cannot just continue adding your opinions to articles when others disagree with you. Until you have consensus your edits are extremely disruptive.
- I was very clear after your last block that you should not immediately reinsert the same edits once your block expired. Yet you immediately reinserted those edits. Please stop editing that article. If you continue to insert disputed edits to North America you will be blocked for a much longer period. Thanks, Gwernol 17:53, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
The usual custom is to post new comments to the bottom of user talk pages. It's not a big deal or anything, but it's a best practice, and your comments may on occasion be otherwise accidentally overlooked. WilyD 20:28, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Seicer (talk) (contribs) 20:35, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Hi, I'm sorry you feel that way about the CIA data. Unfortunately, that's your opinion and it's not going to be shared by everyone. The point of the map I made is to represent the data that the CIA website released. Whether or not their info is factually correct is not relevant, what's important is consistency. People need to be able to check the data on the map and compare it to the CIA website. If you want to make a map representing UN data, or various other sources, then feel free to do so, but please don't break the consistency of the CIA map. Thanks! Sbw01f (talk) 02:07, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
- Hi again. Please don't clone my map and claim authorship, that's rather dishonest. Further, there is no need for a second map on that article with only two differing countries - that only brings down the quality of the article. The map is a representation of one source, and that point is made extremely clear in the note below. Anyone who wants to see the UN data or any other alternative source can easily do so by scrolling down and looking at the various tables. I understand that some people don't like seeing what they perceive as false information in various wikipedia maps, but you must understand that your opinion doesn't necessarily reflect everyone else's, and you shouldn't edit articles to reflect your own personal point of view (regarding the validity of the CIA data, in this case). The CIA factbook is seen as a reliable source by most people, and while you are entitled to your opinion, you aren't entitled to change statistical articles based on your lone opinion.
- Thank you for your understanding. I assure you that as soon as Brazil and Puerto Rico are updated on the CIA website I'll update the map asap. Sbw01f (talk) 03:35, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Read the history summaries, I've already addressed the problems there. ☆ CieloEstrellado 13:42, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
- ECLAC uses national poverty lines from government sources. You obviously didn't read my edit summaries. The anonymous user (yourself?) is either mis-citing the information or using the wrong information included in the sources. I already checked every single one of them. ☆ CieloEstrellado 03:16, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
"Poverty" includes extreme poverty in ECLAC. ☆ CieloEstrellado 08:27, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Brazil as a potential superpower
The sources cited do not back up Brazil's claim to be a potential superpower. The first source claims that Brazil is "Keen to transform itself from developing nation to world power". The second source suggests that Brazil has become an "agricultural superpower" (and is an article posted in a forum). Nirvana888 (talk) 00:36, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
- That it is your point of view and on Wikipedia we need reliable sources to support any points. The general academic view is that Brazil has the potential to be a great power but not a superpower. I suggest you find some credible, reliable sources to support your statement because your sources so far are not valid. Thanks. Nirvana888 (talk) 04:01, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited San Miguelito District, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page San Miguelito (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.
Hello, I see you uploaded a number of photographs from tripadvisor.com, describing them as freely licensed. While I can see why you felt these were legitimate, we had a bit of a discussion about it over at WP:Image copyright questions#Photographs from tripadvisor.com, and the consensus there has been that the licenses you quoted from that website don't really constitute a fully "free" license in the sense of our image policies here, so we can't use photos from that source.

Template:Largest cities of Panama
Could you please stop adding the number of inhabitants of a province into this list of largest cities?
¿Podrías por favor dejar de añadir 'el número de habitantes de una provincia en la lista de los más grandes 'ciudades?
22:01, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry, I have reverted you edits once again. It is [own source that already gives the 813k inhabitants for Panama Province. Some cities could indeed be with the agglomeration of another big city, but still be an independent city with its own City Council. So please, ONLY add details of cities in the template, not that of provinces. 12:53, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
