Thank you for Zoo flak tower. When you create a long article with inline refs, don't hesitate to nominate it at T:TDYK for front-page exposure! Also, please add categories. I've added the assessment template (Talk:Zoo flak tower), it is quite simple and I'd encourage you to do so to your future articles as well. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 15:05, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Zoo flak tower

Are you sure that the publisher and the date is correct for this reference "Beevor Antony “Berlin the Downfall” Penguin, London. 2002, p 372"? Other pages that use this book have it as Viking publisher for 2002 (1st hardback edition) and Penguin for 2003. -- PBS (talk) 05:05, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

When you put in a citation as "Vol. 118 Issue 3, p51, 2p" does the 2p stand for paragraph 2? -- PBS (talk) 00:43, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Me again! Do I assume that you wish to go ahead, because the clock is ticking now but there is one final tweak to make to the tranclusion (I could do this for you), but you have not yet made the required self-nomination statement. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 11:00, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Moral support

I'm posting here because I can't bear to post in the Oppose section.

I think the general subject of military history is one of the strengths of Wikipedia, so I want to be encouraging to anyone who wants to work in that area. As you note, Aussie coverage is weak, so that's another point in your favor. When I see "I work in Information, and web publishing, and my main drive is a love of history." my main thought is, how do we make sure to keep someone like this interested.

I looked very briefly at a couple of the articles you've created, and it reinforced my beliefs.

(As an aside though, I urge you to look at Wikipedia:Citation templates, your refs are OK, but not best practice.)

However, I am wondering, as are some others, if you have a clear understanding of the nature of being an admin.

It has nothing to do with "formatting corrections". It has something to do with disputes, but resolving disputes is a function that can and should be undertaken by non-admins, and other that the power to block, being an admin doesn't bring much to the table. More importantly, that only touches on a tiny portion of admin actions. In the past month, I have deleted thousands of old versions of images. This is exceedingly boring, but does require a knowledge of image use policy. I try to help when help is needed, but unless one is very specialized, one ought to have a broad understanding of many policies, and how things are handled. Personally, I didn't think I had a handle on that until I had 10,000 edits, and I still run into areas where I have to treat carefully, because there is a lot to learn. I simply don't think it is possible to have an adequate breadth of experience with roughly 2,000 edits. I realize your calendar time is long, and perhaps you've done a lot of reading, relative to your editing, but I didn't hear you say that.

I hope the almost inevitable result of the RfA bid doesn't discourage you. We want more people like you. I urge you to become more active - perhaps get involved in a Wikiproject such a Military or Aussie or History. Spend some time contributing to Afd (I see a few edits, but only a few) to see if this is the type of thing you like. (Although, this is not a requirement. I did, and didn't like it so I generally stay away.) Help out with CCI, an area you can work on as a non-admin, but can work more effectively as an admin. I'll be happy to add other suggestions if you want.--SPhilbrick(Talk) 14:56, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Your RFA

Hello. I have just closed your RFA as unsuccessful. Thank you for volunteering as an admin candidate. It seems that other editors just feel that it's just a little too early, but you could try again in the future. It often takes several attempts at RFA for folks to be successful and the key to success is to take the advice from the folks who opposed your candidacy and apply it to your editing. If you would like to reopen your RFA, please let me know. But I'd strongly recommend that if you would like additional feedback from the community about your editing, consider WP:Editor review. Please don't let this stress you out or change your interest in contributing to Wikipedia. Good luck and happy editing.--v/r - TP 19:55, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Your RfA

I am sorry that your RfA wasn't successful. As the first person who voted, let me give some advice to help make your RfA more successful in the future. First off, admin tools are NOT used in article creation and dispute. An admin has just as much power in discussions as other editors do. In other words, of you were an admin involved in a discussion, other editors will treat you like an editor and not an admin. Being an administrator of Wikipedia means you have an extra set of tool that allows you to edit fully protected pages, protect pages, delete pages, an block users. It also gives you many more rights to Wikipedia. It appears your focus is only on content creation and editing them. This is somewhat important to becoming an admin as it shows you know its editing policy however, it is not limited to that. If you really want to be an admin, start off by patrolling new pages, participating in WP:RFPP, WP:PERM, and so forth. Also, up the edit count. 2,700 edits in 6 years is a bit small. I hope this helps out a bit. Consult other administrators for more advice. The best one I can recommend to you is User:Xeno. Have fun and happy editing. Oh yea. Your talk page is rediculously long. I would consider archiving some threads. I could help set up an automatic archiving system on your talk page for you that will automatically move old threads to the archive.—cyberpower (Talk to Me)(Contributions) 21:54, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Battle of Wareo

I was reviewing new pages, and I noticed a lot of the text in Battle of Wareo came from [[1]]. What is the copyright status of the source text, is it public domain, or subject to copyright? Monty845 23:04, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

The text is not copied directly from that source, it has been re written using the original as source material, so copyright does not apply. If any of it is the same, and can be claimed to be copied directly, please advise and I will change it. I would include more sources, but unfortunately that is all I could find, including searching subscription databases. Deathlibrarian (talk) 08:15, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

I've tried to re write it a bit more, and included two more references I found, so its not all from the one source.Deathlibrarian (talk) 10:20, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Alf Stewart's Rape Dungeon

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Alf Stewart's Rape Dungeon requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. WWGB (talk) 11:28, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Alf Stewart's Rape Dungeon for deletion

November 2012

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your 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. Nikkimaria (talk) 13:49, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Mark Arsten (talk) 20:16, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

I would like to seek a dispute resolution on the insertion of this section, and to do so, need to have my editing rights reinstated. I have been trying to get the editors on this page to discuss the relevant section on the talk page, however the inserted section continues to be removed without discussion. I would like outside comment on the addition, rather than just the editors who are keen to remove the section without discussion. I think the inserted section has merit Deathlibrarian (talk) 21:38, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that
  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you
    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.
Please read the guide to appealing blocks for more information.

Request reason:

Aren't I supposed to be warned on my talk page before I am blocked on 3RRR??? I understand I have been blocked for continuously re inserting a section, which I will no longer do. I thought it was permissible to do this while the matter was being discussed, but apparently not. I will no longer insert this section. I will instead seek mediation on the matter and get some fresh outside opinion. While I believe the insertion of this reference does improve the article and is a useful contribution to Wikipedia, however yes, an ongoing edit war between myself and the other authors is not helpful. Cheers!Deathlibrarian (talk) 13:32, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Looking above on this talk page I see a message timed at 13:49, 7 November 2012, which makes the situation quite clear, so I find your claim not to have known odd. (Incidentally, it also bewilders me that anyone should think that edit warring is OK as long as the issue is being discussed. If that bizarre policy were adopted, it would just mean that disruptive editors who wanted to edit war could just keep posting more and more messages insisting "I am right" to the article's talk page, and carry on edit warring endlessly.)

Guy Fawkes

I came here to say that I'm pleased we seem to have been able to resolve our differences without either of us being blocked for 3RR, but I seem to have missed the party.

To expand on what I said on the article's talk page, the issue for me is always how can you construct a coherent story, particularly in a Legacy or In popular culture section, which can so easily end up looking like rag bags of trivial factoids. Along the lines of "On John Lennon's solo album Plastic Ono Band, Lennon sings 'Remember, remember, the 5th of November' on the song "Remember"', to be found in an early version of the article. Anyway, don't worry about your block, just a battle scar to be worn proudly. And I say that as almost certainly one of the most-blocked editors still active on Wikipedia; blocking established editors very rarely fixes anything. Malleus Fatuorum 03:23, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

War of 1812

I have been cleaning up some of the citations in the article War of 1812, but for some of them the original editor did not provide enough information for me to be able to do so. You made an edit on 29 March 2010 which included inside a ref-tag pair the following:

Turner (2000) Zuehlke (2007), Hixson (2001); William Appleman Williams, The Contours of American History (1961) p 196; Steven Watts, The Republic Reborn: War and the Making of Liberal America, 1790-1820 (1987) p 316

Please could you supply page numbers for Turner, Zuehlke and Hixson; and also a full citation for Hixson which did not and does not exist in the article, or if they are superfluous to requirements remove them. -- PBS (talk) 14:53, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
