Hello I wastrying to change the title from 'creole french' to 'french creole' last last one makes more sense and more in tne to what people say in real life. Sorry if I caused any issues. Is it possibe for the edited page to replace the other?

February 2013[edit]

Your recent editing history at Man shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Jetstreamer Talk 00:11, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

I have reverted four times an edit by a now indefinitely blocked user, who was making unsourced changes without comment, apart from commenting that everyone who was changing his edit was a racist. Cst17 (talk) 10:36, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
It was not obvious vandalism, though, and you reverted their edits more than three times in less than a 24-hour period. Given that the user has been blocked and you hasn't, it is appropriate for you to had a warning too.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:08, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I see at the user's talk page that s(he) has been blocked indefinitely after their very unfortunate reaction.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:13, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
I miscounted the reverts. I had one revert and later 3 reverts in a row. After the three reverts I stopped, I forgot about the earlier revert. It was maybe not obvious vandalism, but mainly baised on his violating reactions towards other users and later on also towards me. Cst17 (talk) 23:37, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Tiwest Joint Venture[edit]

Cst17 Back on 7 Aug 2012 I left a similar message.

This concerns the TIWEST Joint Venture wikipedia page created by you. I am asking for you to delete this page. There is no more Tiwest Joint Venture. I am an employee of Tronox and have been asked to help facilitate the removal of this page. Please send me a message back on what it will take to remove this page.

Attached is the News Release on June 15, 2012 where this was dissolved and now 100% owned by Tronox. This can be found in paragraph 3 of the announcement. Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page).

I didn't create the page. You can nominate the page for deletion if you want. Cst17 (talk) 22:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Uhm... notability is not temporary. If the topic Tiwest Joint Venture was at some point in history Notable enough to deserve a wikipedia article, and reliable sources WP:PROVEIT, we keep, eh? Your response is not incorrect... just, well, incomplete, I guess is the word I'm looking for. Am I wrongheaded here, or were you just in a hurry, and maybe paying out some rope? JCockrum had blanked the page, with an edit-summary of 'no longer exists' which you then reverted using STiki as 'unexplained'. That's what they meant when they said '[re-]created by you' above. I've edited the page to the past tense, and cited the press-release per WP:ABOUTSELF, which is borderline since another company was involved, but WP:REQUIRED and all that. Hope this helps.

He Cst, you reverted an IP at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/IIMSAM, that reverted two accounts that had magically shown up at the AfD with the modus operandi of user:Jageshwar, so I have in name of RBI reverted again and started an SPI... Feel free to undo if you think I was wrong, but I think the IP was doing the right things here (with the wrong reasoning; and a clear lack of competence...) L.tak (talk) 08:56, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Secretary of the Army Career Counselor of the Year[edit]


When you edited this page, you took away the actual meaning of the award (there's no such thing as "Component Career Counselor of the Year") and your removed much of the guidance that's posted for Career Counselors that want to compete.

I can move the technical information to the bottom of the page, but it's important it remains to preserve the award's history.

--Armyreenlistment (talk) 18:10, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Therefore I have immediately undone my own edit. Cst17 (talk) 19:38, 17 July 2013 (UTC)


You've previously had interaction with User:Thomasfan5034, who is indefinitely blocked, or one of his alleged sockpuppets. There is now an SPI discussion in progress that you may be able to provide some insight into. If you are interested, the discussion may be found at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Thomasfan5034. Thank you. --AussieLegend () 11:50, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Relax Your Mind[edit]

I've changed this entry to a disambiguation page which lists articles associated with the same title. That is why the stub tags are displaced. Bye --Popmuseum (talk) 13:09, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

the secret life of Bukaneer Minimus[edit]

Special:Contributions/Bukaneer_minimus Somebody came through wikipedia on halloween, playing trick-or-treat at several user-talkpages, for 13 minutes. <gasp> Thirteen! Eeevvviilll....

And then they were perma-banned, including denial of the ability to edit their own talkpage, as well as send and receive their own gateway'd emails.

So, what's up with that? I recognize at least three admins on the trick-list, slakr / Durova / newyorkbrad, and I know the last one is arbcom clerk or arbcom member or something like that. But wikipedia is the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Even if they disagree with arbcom. Obviously something set this person off, and it seems doubtful that they will be a useful contributor to the encyclopedia.

But I don't really like the whiff of let-us-silence-this-dissent-so-that-none-may-ever-know-the-name-Herostratus. Is there some kind of WP:PG that explains what one can do in 13 minutes, that will accomplish a permaban with history-deletion? Or can you just explain it to me? I don't really care about the specifics of this particular case; this is a meta-concern. Danke. (talk) 17:08, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

MPLS reference[edit]

Hi CST17,

Thankyou for your message. Do you think my link to IT Knowledge Exchange is better placed elsewhere within the article? The actual content should be very aligned to the Wiki page since it covers longform content regaring MPLS procurement. No pressure but would love to contribute.
