If you are new here, and feeling angry, please read Tips for the Angry New User before explaining to us how terribly wrong and messed up Wikipedia is. Would you believe, we probably already know? You can also familiarise yourself with Wikipedia culture via these policy links ->

What's goin' on...[edit]

June 2016[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Cheyenne may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • {IPAc-en|ʃ|aɪ|ˈ|æ|n}} {{respell|shy|AN|'}}) are one of the [Indigenous peoples of the Great Plains]] and their language is of the [[Algonquian languages|Algonquian language family]]. The Cheyenne
  • the Missouri River, the Cheyenne came into contact with the neighboring [[Mandan]], [[Hidatsa]] (Tsé-heše'émâheónese - „people, who have soil houses (that is, [[earth lodge]]s“) and [[Arikara]]

Native American Music Award page[edit]

I see what has occurred on the page(I think) since I edited it earlier today; so is the issue the IP editor has with the page is that it contains the term "Nammy"? 331dot (talk) 20:57, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your explaining the legal threat issue to them. I think their issue is that they are being prevented from using WP as a place for press releases and other non-critical promotional content. Reading their edits, I am pretty certain the IP edits and the new account are the same user. Check the contribs on both. I think they don't understand what WP is about and are WP:NOTHERE to create an encyclopedia but to spam. The semi may help for now, but we will probably wind up having to do some blocks. - CorbieV 21:16, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for what you have done on this matter; I appreciate you telling me your impressions of the situation. 331dot (talk) 21:27, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

Serena Williams[edit]

Why do you keep re-editing Serena Williams' biographical article in a disruptive and negative manner?? Most of the wording and grammar doesn't make any sense and you are putting her Grand Slam achievements at the bottom of the page. Achievements of an athlete should follow immediately after the name introduction, as it with most tennis players, but you have decided to put Serena's achievements on a lower paragraph where users cannot see it, which only makes me conclude that you are a racist! And you NEED to get your facts right -- Serena Williams is WIDELY regarded as the greatest female tennis player of all time. Not just by "some" commentators and sports writers, as you would like. So get your facts right on that!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aries009 (talkcontribs) 21:36, 22 July 2016 (UTC) :

I invite you to take a deep breath and have a cup of tea. Click on the tab on the top of the Serena Williams page that says, "history." If you peruse this, you will see that I made no changes to the text on that page. What I did was perform an administrative action and semi-protect the page to stop the new and logged-out users from endlessly edit-warring over the same word order and word choice. I have no opinion on which version is WP:The Wrong Version. Take it to the talk page of the article, and discuss with the actual people who are working on the content how the article should read. When you reach consensus, one of the more experienced editors on the team can make those changes. May I also suggest these helpful tips? Peace. - CorbieV 15:23, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
