Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hasbro Studios, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Burbank (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.

|On 12 August 2014, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Walt Disney Animation Studios, which you recently created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that Walt Disney Animation Studios has released 53 animated features to date, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) to Frozen (2013)? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Walt Disney Animation Studios. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
Query on reversion
I noticed that you reverted my edit on the grounds of following normative writing conventions. Is not a prominent guide for media writing from a well-known national body basing its recommendations [off research|http://www.samaritans.org/media-centre/media-guidelines-reporting-suicide/new-advice-journalists-suicide-reporting-academic] (World Health Organisation), and that have been adopted by a national press standards body (UK Press Association) not a suitable reference to show that such use is conventional (even if others do continue to use "commit", which implies criminalisation from its etymology)?
Please change the tone of your posts
Dear UCLA corporate lawyer,
No need to use the term "INCOMPETENT" on edit summaries when reverting good faith edits or leaving remarks on how ignorant a user is on their talk pages, especially of people you don't know anything about. I realize Wikipedia may be your personal playground and outlet to channel your legal and excellent editing skills, but also realize it is shared by others and a more civil tone would be better for everyone. Best wishes.Gugvista (talk) 23:16, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Dear Coolcaesar, could you please take several pictures of the KABC-TV studios in Glendale. If you do the travel, please also make a stop to take picture from 1402 Flower Street (Disney Animation Research Library) and the 1300 Flower Street (Disney Day Care Center). It would be great and mostly complete the Disney offices in Grand Central Creative Campus. Sincerely --GdGourou - °o° - Talk to me 21:50, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive behaviour. Your behaviour is verging on harassment. Wikipedia prides itself on providing a safe environment for its collaborators, and harassing edits, such as the one you made to Disney Renaissance, potentially compromise that safe environment. If you continue behaving like this, you may be blocked from editing. TJRC (talk) 23:41, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
US vs U.S.
You aren't exactly right there. See MOS:NOTUSA. "In American and Canadian English, U.S. (with periods and without a space) has long been the dominant abbreviation for United States. US (without periods) is more common in most other national forms of English. Some major American style guides, such as The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.), now deprecate U.S. and prefer US. Use of periods for abbreviations and acronyms should be consistent within any given article and congruent with the variety of English used by that article." Dougweller (talk) 16:09, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Your material added to Delegated legislation is contradictory and misplaced. As Wikipedia is not a US court, American courts are nothing more than mere commentators, and their opinions should not be afforded any more deference. IMO the quote clearly concedes that the executive branch legislates and adjudicates, and should be left on its own without commentary, as an obviously underdeveloped legal theory would deserve nothing more than a "C-" in an undergraduate political science course at a community college. More analysis is needed than the opinion of a single court focused norrowly on fitting a square peg into a round hole. Int21h (talk) 07:14, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Personal attack in edit summary at Circle 7 Animation
07:37, 15 June 2015 Coolcaesar (talk | contribs) . . (8,273 bytes) (-1) . . "Countermand good faith edit by Spshu. The version without the hyphen has been prevalent in formal business English for almost 20 years. Try reading Fortune or Bloomberg Businessweek more often."
- Spell check shows that is not spelled right. And you cease making personal attacks hidden behind "Countermand good faith edit" as you have no business telling me what to read or to assume that I do or don't read a particular publication. WP is not a "formal business" publication in any case. Nor does "companywide" show up in dictionaries, dictionary.com, the Free Dictionary, Webster-dictionary.com, Merriam-Webster. Cambridge business dictionary says they are equal valid. Oxford dictionary (through One Look) indicates "company-wide" while Wordnik indicates both. Businessdictionary.com does not come up with "companywide" but either "company-wide" or "company wide". Spshu (talk) 14:11, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Came here to discuss the same edit] as Spshu (currently directly above this), but not quite the same aspect, so starting a new section... Might be worth noting that CMoS says for -wide constructions, according to this PDF: "Closed if listed as such in Webster's. If not in Webster's, hyphenated." Wikipedia does not use CMoS exclusively, but the main MOS references it as one authoritative source among several, so it appears to carry more weight than various business publications. Just my two cents. --Fru1tbat (talk) 18:04, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Coolcaesar. I thought I should let you know countermand means to revoke (an order) or declare (a vote or election) invalid, not just "to oppose" or "counter" something, according to the New Oxford American Dictionary. Cheers! ;) —zziccardi (talk) 14:27, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Listen, the only reason why I add informations from Forbes contributors is because others have used and done it vehemently and severely in many other wiki pages most notably pertaining to superhero pages. For example, look at The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice among others, they have been quoting either Scott Mendelson or Mark Huges (from Forbes). From poster reviews to trailer reviews. And it's not just once. If the trailer for the film, say Civil War, comes out three times, they always add his review of all the three trailers and quote him. Why isn't that being checked? The only time I'll stop adding from Forbes is when Justice and equality prevails. U can't target some users for doing an illegal thing (I assume) and go on living knowing that there are others out there committing the same mistakes. Yes, I am fully aware that I have been warned perhaps once or twice. In the page, Frozen Fever I was not to add reviews from Mendelson, I accept that that, but then I go on reading other articles but found his reviews to be in some of them. I don't think is unfair to take box office information from them. Because they have accurate data and are professionals at what they do. Infact Scott a Mendelson is one of the best box office pundit out there, comparing to the likes of Nany Tartaglione, Anita Busch and Anthony D. Alesandro of Deadline.com, McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter and Brad Brevet of Box Office Mojo. So I feel it's not wrong to take box office information from him. Yeah maybe reviews. Infact the exact figures for the most expensive film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strangers Tides was provided by Forbes contributors and they are still out there in numerous pages and no one is having a single problem. I don't think so Forbes company would wanna pay their employee if they circulate inaccurate information. Who wants to be besmirched right?. So please, put checks on those who put reviews on those superhero pages as well. I would like to see them (the reviews) being vanished then I can be content that equality prevails.

- Ok, if Forbes is such an unreliable source, then why don't u try reverting those informations taken from Forbes, like the trailer reviews in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice etc, you'll have legions of writers attacking u, legions I'm telling u. I don't have any problem, but they will, so PLEASE I insist u to revert those edits taken from Forbes, if it is such an unreliable source. Please go revert it and see multitudes of contributors pitting u. And yes the exact figure for the "most expensive film ever made" which is held by Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is given by Forbes, so please, talk is cheap, go here, List of most expensive films and go revert the edit because Forbes is so unreliable to u and let's see how u hold up to those contributors argue with u. I don't have any problem. But they will so good luck. I'll just sit back, relax and enjoy the conversation. Go on. Also try reverting to the $279.9 million budget of Avengers: Age of Ultron (also from Forbes) and see how ur edit will be revert more quicker than "blink-and-you'll-miss" moment of Rita Ora on Fifty Shades of Grey.

Reference errors on 20 March
Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:
- Just stopping by to say I agree, Coolcaesar can you please stop it with edit summaries like this. This is unacceptable. 1. The way you name the users you correct makes it seem like you have a problem with them as people, not their actions. 2. Calling it "Engrish" can be very disheartening to editors actually trying to learn English. 3. It just has a rude and condescending feel to it. And I see you've had issues with this in the past. Maybe now is the time to start a new leaf. Sro23 (talk) 08:31, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
I do not appreciate the abrasive tone of your comments aimed at me on the US state talk page. Your disparaging words were both uncivil and unconstructive. Please remember that Wikipedia is not a scholarly journal and that not everyone is as steeped in the law as you are. Drdpw (talk) 19:31, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
Furhter participation from you at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Common_law#Proposal
My note, asking for your further participation --
Thanks Coolceaser. I added that very explanation in a footnote as soon as the issue surfaced -- I didn't discuss it on the Talk page because I engaged with it in the text. I can't do it now, but I'll move the footnote into the text within a day or so. Does that close out the "connotations" issue? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:18, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I see Qexigator already took care of it. Thanks.
Now we come to the other problem. This is another round with an editor that is singing the tune of the Cliven Bundy / no Sixteenth Amendment crowd, the folks that insist that the common law ended with the American Revolution, that we still operate under the common law as it existed in 1789, and all subsequent legal developments are unconstitutional. Up the page, you'll see that Qexigator pointed us to the National Liberty Alliance web site. Whether Qexigotor is or is not part of this bunch, I don't know -- but the points he wants to introduce are the same ones that Coolceasar and Famspear and I have repelled in the past.
I believe the article should, first of all, be accurate. As one example, "the common law" is as recent as the Supreme Court's opinion from 10AM this morning, not frozen in time in 1789. In today's world, Antonin Scalia and Steven Breyer are the relevant authors of the common law. Coke or Blackstone are not "law" -- they're just commentaries. Etc. etc. The article should not imply otherwise.
Similarly, other artifacts of the 1890 description from Black's 1st Ed -- which had carried forward almost verbatim though the 1969 edition, despite Erie, FRCP, merger of law and equity, and the Field Code and all the rest -- should not be presented as current fact. Fine to discuss historical artifacts if they are labeled as obsolete, but it's not OK to present them as current reality.
That's the current point of disagreement.

Later same day --
If you have any questions about who's acting in good faith and who isn't, take a look at this  -- Qexigator proposes to remove all cites to the current edition of Black's, so that he can run with his agenda.
I think it's time to ask to have Qexigator banned. I have no idea how any of that admin stuff works.
Just a quick ping here, since I know a revert of a revert  can be seen as antagonistic/aggressive. I do understand that story titles are denoted by quotation marks; my (rhetorical) question in my original edit was as to why they were being used in this case. The particular usage here indicates a character name, not a title. I was choosing to remove the quotation marks and leave the wording alone, but it would be equally valid to leave the quotation marks and delete the preposition (based on the story "Rapunzel").

Regarding your edit of my typo. I noticed that you called it a "weird typo." It was a lower case "p", and you simply changed it to a capital "P". There was absolutely nothing "weird" about it. I'm not sure why you chose that adjective (or why you even felt the need to describe it at all) I notice that you have previously had comments on your talk page about your tone. You should really heed those previous comments. Thanks for your time.Wikicontributor12 (talk) 03:24, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
University of California
Hey, thanks for your additions. I wanted to make some edits to what you wrote. I think some words should be taken out to preserve the objective feel of the article. Like taking out 'desperately' form "supporters desperately believed" and 'extraordinarily' from "become an extraordinarily long constitution". Would you agree?

Hello, I'm Contributor321. I noticed that you made a change to an article, University of California, Merced, but you didn't provide a reliable source.
