Received; may be I'm not too clear what you're trying to imply, but it sounds like taking bits of The Next Doctor and the 8th Doctor and drawing conclusions from them. This is synthesis and not permitted, by policy; if you can find a reliable source who has discussed this somewhere, by all means it can go in. Otherwise, afraid not. --Rodhullandemu 19:44, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Apostolic succession[edit]

Hi! I see you added a number of successions claimed by various churches, which another editor then removed. The problem with your addition is that you didn't cite any reference sources, so the claims you made didn't meet Wikipedia's policy on verifiablity. Please feel free to reinstate your edits, adding a reference to a reliable source for each claim. Don't worry if you're not familiar with the format for references: if you can supply the information and it stands up as reliably sourced then I or any of the other editors who watch the article can help to get it into shape. Best regards -- Timberframe (talk) 07:57, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi again! Thanks for adding the refs. I added descriptors to two that lacked them and in the case of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem I drilled down to the page in the doc you'd cited to direct the reader to the claim. Trust that's OK with you, if not feel free to improve it. Cheers -- Timberframe (talk) 11:29, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Apostolic succession II[edit]

Hi again! Thanks for your suggestions for improving and expanding the article. Rather than putting them in HTML comments within the article, please would you put them on the discussion page where they will be more visible and other editors will be able to discuss your ideas with you. Cheers -- Timberframe (talk) 19:27, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Removal of PROD from Crosslet, Dumbarton[edit]

Hello Dava4444, this is an automated message from SDPatrolBot to inform you the PROD template you added to Crosslet, Dumbarton has been removed. It was removed by JIP with the following edit summary 'removed prod notice, I don't see how being a street automatically means it has to be deleted'. Please consider discussing your concerns with JIP before pursuing deletion further yourself. If you still think the article should be deleted after communicating with the 'dePRODer,' you may want to send the article to AfD for community discussion.

"In my personal note to you, I encouraged you to find an area of Wikipedia that is within your area of expertise and add new material to it. One of those was the Humanist article. I suggested that a common flaw for new editors was to fall into a deletionst role of wanting to remove things they did not agree with. All of this was before your many, many, many posts, and before your crusade to remove both the video and the image from the ejaculation article. I gently recommend, and encourage you again to find an area within Wikipedia that is within your area of personal expertise. Please add new stubs, add detail and references to articles in that area. I don't think that ejaculation should define your contribution to Wikipedia. Atom (talk) 11:46, 22 February 2010 (UTC)"

Hi Atom! er just an FYI, Humanism, is a religion, that some claim is a lack of... but many Satanist are humanists. " a set of core beliefs to define ones life and interaction with the universe/creation" can be applied to both. just to be freer and to not hide anything, I am Catholic. but if I tried to put my perspective on the immorally of a man ejaculating without stimulation from his wife at the top of the article it would (would of as it is locked just now) undoubtedly be quickly moved, so then does it follow a Humanist perspective is as outwardly bias? Dava4444 (talk) 16:50, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Humanism is not a religion, it is a philosophy. There are Secular Humanists and Christian Humanists among others. There are many Catholics that are Humanists. An interest and concern on the human condition does not make one either theistic or non-theistic. Likely the God that mostChristian believe in is a Humanist. I am not sure what to make of your comment. Humanism has nothing to do with whether a medical image of a bodily function is appropriate on Wikipedia. The only reference given was where I gave DMSBel advice to edit within articles that are his area of expertise. He cooicidentally happened to have edited the humanism article once. And for the record, I am a Buddhist (which is non-theistic) as well as being a humanist. Lets stick to the topic though, okay? Atom (talk) 21:14, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi! I really don't want to argue with you and you really have an air of neutrality about you, but Humanism and Humanity are different concepts, (I know you weren't saying that, I'm just making a point) Humanisim is the belief "there is no God so Man is God" to wit they say they can do as they please. (so beware! they have a sinister agenda) Do you believe our Father Adam Kadman acted like this? this is not Zen, this is debase. peace :). on another note I wont be back to that article again because this is depressing me, I felt inspired when I heard "the sum of human knowledge" but ah well ..this is a bit sad.Dava4444 (talk) 23:05, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

I had wondered about what was and wasn't okay to copy. I am a Shaw myself, and finding the information, understandably was very very hard, seeing that the subject is so very very old... so at the time, I guess i just gave up and copied. apologies. I will not do it again. His page is the only complete history of my clan. and other places only have one story repeated over and over.

Apologies again.

Calling people Nazis is unacceptable[edit]

The only context that it works in is actual Nazis. Do not post such grossly insulting things. Zero Serenity (talk - contributions) 12:54, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

April 2016[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Talk:Phil Mason. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi 17:15, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
