IP warning[edit]

Maybe it would be better had I started with a higher-level warning, but it doesn't seem right to post two consecutive warnings when the IP, however bad, made no edits in between. Should one of the warnings be removed? Thanks. Dustin (talk) 14:44, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

If you want to. I don't think it's a problem. ... discospinster talk 14:46, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Oh, okay then. Dustin (talk) 14:48, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

sesselmann[edit]

So how can I word her performance in the Fifa WWC 2015 ,and the goal in the quarter final, and be "neutral" at the same time.

This is part of her career history and one of her defining moments. It needs to be part of her page in some form. Wikipedia is not intended to stroke egos or "only write good stuff so we don't hurt anyone's feelings".

Is there a reliable source that describes this as her "defining moment"? Otherwise you're just adding your opinion. ... discospinster talk 20:55, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

"defining moment" you can argue is an opinion. Fair enough. But, the play did happen, and is a factual event. It should be allowed on her page at least as a factual description. This isnt' a "Wikipedia so people's feelings don't get hurt". There are plenty of athletes who have made mistakes and it is reported on their wiki. I can put up the facts only which is in the spirit of Wikipedia.

Thanks![edit]

Ya i made a mistake. my appologies.

I moved it to your userspace for now. See User:Sibipaul/Fastunlocker. ... discospinster talk 12:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the correct one is Cool for the Summer (song) and it was created BEFORE Cool for the Summer who copied what I had begin editing on the page. When mine didn't have the picture yet, there's did not either.

The other one has a title consistent with the style of naming articles. So further information you have about it can go on that one. ... discospinster talk 14:23, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Wut Hmone Shwe Yee[edit]

An article that is already has about wutt hmone shwe yi is wrong. Her name is not Wut Hmone Shwe Yee. That wrong article's display title is Wut Hmone Shwe Yee. Her right name is Wutt Hmone Shwe Yi. So, I am trying to get a right wikipedia of Wutt Hmone Shwe Yi. If you let not me to create a new article about her, pls delete her wrong article named Wut Hmone Shwe Yee that has already in wikipedia. if not, your wikipedia information cannot provide right information to users.

f I can possible, I want to edit that wrong title Wut Hmone Shwe Yee to right title Wutt Hmone Shwe Yi. But I cannot edit that tile because I am not the author of that article Wut Hmone Shwe Yee. That author at also do not edit that wrong display title of his article. He ignore his wikipedia page. He also do not edit for a long time.

I said this case repeat and repeat to your wikipedia admins. But anyone don't care my apologize. Whenever I say this case to wikipedia admins, your admins always admonish me to block my account. This is disappointed to me. So, please I hope you will help me.

To rename an article you have to move it instead of copying the content under a new name. If you can't move it yourself you can ask an admin at WP:REQMOVE. Since I am an admin I can do it. ... discospinster talk 17:29, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Origin of the Fête de la Musique[edit]

Dear Discospinster,

I am surprised that the correct narrative regarding the origin of the Fête de la Musique has been deleted. The story has been authenticated by several journalists, most recently by the Telévision Suisse Romande. Here is the link: http://www.rts.ch/play/tv/mise-au-point/video/comme-si-cetait-hier?id=6884761

Joel Cohen, the originator of the basic idea in 1976, and the author of this communication, is thanked at the end of the clip for his concept by Jack Lang, who had previously claimed its paternity.

Thanks very much for your attention to this matter. I believe the documentation concerning the origin of the Fête is now sufficiently clear and definitive. Please restore the accurate text submitted on June 30, 2015. 68.163.231.28 (talk) 14:15, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

The content was originally unreferenced. You can reinstate it and add the link that you noted above, by placing it after the text between these two tags: <ref>[link]</ref>. ... discospinster talk 19:22, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Block[edit]

Hey. Would you be able to block this IP for the exact same reason as this user you just blocked. Cheers. DaHuzyBru (talk) 14:20, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Done. ... discospinster talk 14:21, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Safiye Sultan[edit]

This is not truth that she was of Albanian descendant. She was Venetian: Sophia Baffo...this is not an Albanian name. Also Albanians are Muslim, and no Muslim woman came as a slave to the Ottoman Harem.

You are removing content that has sources, and you are not explaining why in the edit summary. That is why I reverted your edits. ... discospinster talk 22:04, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

IP editor on Bernie Sanders[edit]

I have to question whether it is worth responding to that kind of comment. The IP used multiple profanities to refer to other editors, expresses its personal political hatreds, and doesn't seem to want to attempt to be constructive. Dustin (talk) 22:03, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

I just looked at the IP's talk page and see that it has been blocked. Sorry to bother you. Dustin (talk) 22:04, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

No problem. ... discospinster talk 22:05, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm just noting that you're not supposed to remove speedy delete tags on articles you created. You have to wait for someone else to review it. ... discospinster talk 14:55, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Question re: recent deletion[edit]

Hi, Discospinster. In following edits by an IP with whom we've both recently crossed paths, I tend to agree with their removal of content and edit summary here: [1]; is there any rationale for keeping this controversy section? Thanks, 2601:188:0:ABE6:99FD:4E02:9E12:4A31 (talk) 22:30, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

If it's kept it would have to be severely pared down (WP:UNDUE) and accompanied by more secondary reliable sources to show that it's a significant event. ... discospinster talk 22:32, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for writing me? I was communicating with Dr Frank, and noted it was incorrect as 1972. I now see it is corrected, so it doesn't matter if who made the fix. Joel

OK. It's always a good idea to fill in the edit summary when you make a change to an article, to let others know what you're doing, so they know there's a reason for it. ... discospinster talk 11:29, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi - I note you blocked the IP, however, they have just left an edit warring warning at my talk page with a new IP. -- WV 01:50, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

OK I'll keep an eye on it. ... discospinster talk 01:51, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Why am I the bad guy when Mr. WV blindly reverts anything he doesn't like? He's just as culpable as I am, and likely related to this dude. 107.107.59.114 (talk) 01:53, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

If you think that's the case then open a sockpuppet investigation instead of continually adding it under different IPs. ... discospinster talk 01:57, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Right. I'm the Best Known For Vandal who typically uses IPs from South America but has also been using a registered account to occasionally remove "best known" from articles because with three years of experience and more than 14K edits to my credit I want to be caught and have my account blocked for socking. You can't be serious. -- WV 02:20, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Well maybe this personality doesn't but one of your other ones does. Why should I know what's going on in that head of yours. 107.107.56.130 (talk) 02:40, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Question about edit[edit]

Hi, Where in the policy and guideline pages is the rule below? Thanks,

Debates internal to Wikipedia are not appropriate in the articles themselves (unless they've been noted in reliable secondary sources) . . .
"Wikipedia articles (or Wikipedia mirrors) are not reliable sources for any purpose." There's also the policy against original research, so everything has to be attributable to an external source. And it's just not something that is important to the article itself. ... discospinster talk 20:36, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

The Terror from Terre Haute[edit]

Hi Disco, thanks for this revert. The IP is one of many hoppers from Indiana, US bent on article disruption. This IP geolocates to Terre Haute. This report might help you to visualize the scope of the disruption. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 14:28, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

At least the user is not out... killing people or something. ;-) ... discospinster talk 14:29, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

white[edit]

the point of it is that White is not a professional curator, and that he's best known for his libel on Nordegren. Nobody know of him besides for that fact.

So that goes in his own article, not the one about Byrne. ... discospinster talk 14:52, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Kennedy Meeks[edit]

Hi Discospinster, thanks for your message. Can you explain why you are opposed to this picture being removed if another is added? The picture is old and outdated as the subject of the article has worked hard to lose weight during his college career. I would like to add a more up to date picture. Please stop reverting my edits. Mwrcwms (talk) 14:54, 9 July 2015 (UTC)Mwrcwms

So wait until you have the new picture and then add it. The one that's there is perfectly appropriate and there is no valid reason to remove it. Besides, we don't know that he wants the picture removed. ... discospinster talk 14:55, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Discospinster, thanks for your reply. I am working to add a new one. Yes, I do know that Meeks wants the picture removed.
But how do you know this? ... discospinster talk 14:58, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
Discospinster, I know this because I taught a class about Wikipedia yesterday. Meeks attended the class and said that he wanted the picture from his page removed. Mwrcwms (talk) 15:01, 9 July 2015 (UTC)Mwrcwms
Even if that is true it doesn't justify removing it. Like I said, the subject of the article doesn't have control over what's in it if the content is appropriate. ... discospinster talk 15:04, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Gerald Green[edit]

Hey i just wanted to let you know, Gerald actually plays for the Heat as of today. i saw that the person who edited it made some sloppy editing, but he's right. 75.64.131.87 (talk) 20:35, 9 July 2015 (UTC)anonymous

It wasn't that it was sloppy but it was unsourced. ... discospinster talk 21:54, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

well maybe you're right, but nba gametime, espn, and yahoo sports all reported it. but i guess you're deleting it so people won't jump the gun, like with DeAndre Jordan. 75.64.131.87 (talk) 02:30, 10 July 2015 (UTC)anonymous oh wait lol yeah he didn't put the source i guess i didn't understand what you were saying haha whoops2601:3C0:4000:5278:8D32:319D:F596:11B9 (talk) 02:32, 10 July 2015 (UTC)anonymous

So if all of these sources are reporting it (that it's taken place, not that there are "reports" of it), then those should be added and there won't be a problem. But there's often an issue with editors adding deliberately false information, and that's why there's an insistence on having a secondary source. ... discospinster talk 03:10, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

Mimas and the Death Star[edit]

You reverted 173.21.188.179 for making a change noting a resemblance to the Death Star. Upon examination, I noticed that it indeed does bear a great resemblance to the Death Star, so great that I decided to check the rest of the article for relevant information. Indeed, a later part of the article notes the resemblance to the Death Star. I may question whether that addition belongs in the lead, but it actually might not have been with malicious intent that the IP made that edit (although there clearly was vandalism coming from that IP just earlier today). In any case, I just thought I'd notify you! Regards, Dustin (talk) 23:05, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

July 2015[edit]

Information icon Hi Discospinster. Thank you for your work on patrolling new pages and tagging for speedy deletion. I'm just letting you know that I declined your deletion request for Beware of the penguins, a page that you tagged for speedy deletion, because the criterion you used or the reason you gave does not cover this kind of page. I didn't actually decline this one personally, but I noticed the removal of the tag and support it. There is no doubt this doesn't belong in the project, and I've PROD'd it as such, but there is no promotional language at all in this stub. As such, it does not meet WP:G11. Let me know if you disagree, and I'm happy to discuss it. Thanks! Please take a moment to look at the suggested tasks for patrollers, criteria for speedy deletion, and particularly, the section covering non-criteria. Such pages are best tagged with proposed deletion or proposed deletion for biographies of living persons, or sent to the appropriate deletion discussion. Thanks! ~ RobTalk 04:48, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The article is written as if he were real. That's why it's a hoax. ... discospinster talk 20:44, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
You do not know the meaning of the word hoax. There is no reason for you have deleted this article without even having a discussion about ways to improve the article. What happened to assuming good faith? Calm down FFS. RealDealBillMcNeal (talk) 20:50, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
No reason to discuss joke articles. ... discospinster talk 20:52, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Again, you're assuming bad faith in presuming it is a joke article. I guess there's a reason Wikipedia editors have a certain reputation. RealDealBillMcNeal (talk) 21:17, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

I have now added the caveat that Ivica Strok was a character in the video game Football Manager. Thanks.

Dude, I added the caveat that Ivica Strok was a video game character and you still deleted it. Come on man. And now it's locked and I can't add it again like wtf. It's written like a footballer's wikipedia page because he's a football character. It isn't a "joke" article, it's an article about a video game character - you going to go delete the ones about Mario or Sonic now? He's had articles written about him, come on man. T0TheBitterEnd (talk) 20:52, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Your so-called caveat was that he appeared in the video game. You did not note that he is fictional. You added categories that are meant for actual persons, like Category:Commanders of the Order of the British Empire. Your intention was clearly to imply that he's real. How about you write a draft in your user space, that makes it more clear that it's a fictional character, and have someone review it to see whether it's ready for the main article space. ... discospinster talk 21:02, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

STARKILLERS[edit]

Hi, I've made several edits to the music wiki page of starkillers only to have been reverted by a rookie editor. I seek your assistance. This article is full of wiki:puff including talks of funding from (fictional) gangsters, unsubstatiated claims of chartings, an un-notable podcast internet radio show, etc. Its clearly authored by the dj himself as in the ASSOCIATED ACTS section, when you check to edit it, it states 'please don't add associated acts here as starkers is a freelance producer'.

It is a ridiculous promo piece.

Please check it out and revert the page back to my edits.
