White Croats[edit]

I rewrote the article White Croats with over 120 ref-notes. Previous had templates of Original research and Refimprove, for obvious reasons, but don't understand their return by you for current revision? Is there some issue I didn't notice? As for the infobox, it's just unnecessary as there's no info to put in it, and if was (and don't know which - previously only under language Lechitic, which is obvious OR), don't see how much it would improve the article.--Crovata (talk) 11:21, 5 January 2016 (UTC)


Can you be specific and tell me what is the wrong with my edits? because my first edit i reverted the content which was removed by IP address [1], and the second i fixed the problems of references [2]. I think you made a mistake and you should restore my edits on Al-Nassr FC. Hazel (talk) 15:02, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi, this is Hsiao-Hung Pai. The reason why I removed the picture was because I don't want to use any picture for the Wikipedia entry. Hope that is acceptable. Apologies for the inconvenience caused! Secret red (talk) 07:46, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

you reverted my edit?[edit]

How was that vandalism? Sorry I'm new to editing wikis, but it's a proven fact that cyclobenzaprine is significantly less effective at treating skeletal muscle pain than carisoprodol. I didn't say cyclobenzaprine wasn't safer, I said it was less effective, which is true.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Wrong number - haven't edited Carisoprodol or Cyclobenzaprine, at least in recent times. @Jytdog  reverted your edit because you did not provide a source for that "proven fact". Without such verifiability, anyone could declare "facts" such as Elvis Presley inventing the Nitrogen laser. Dl2000 (talk) 15:21, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Kota Hazrat Nizamuddin Jan Shatabdi Express[edit]

Hi there,

Could I have your opinion on Leo Frank's edit for Kota Hazrat Nizamuddin Jan Shatabdi Express. My opinion is that it removes a large amount of information that makes the page what it is.

My apologies.[edit]

Dear Dl2000,
I apologize for removing this template, thereby causing you some unnecessary work to re-instate it.
I think it was only in the 'W' list, which is why I removed it, for consistency. Again, I am sorry if I did something wrong.
Please let me know if it should also be inserted in all the other lists, and I'll propagate it across there too. Thank you.
With kind regards;
Patrick. ツ Pdebee.(talk)(guestbook) 21:22, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Article Inykhnum[edit]

Hi there. I undid your revert on Inykhnum. The changes I did are part of an update project. Our portal is working on meeting a new and more reader friendly standard. As a member of this project I work especially on early dynastic nobles and officials. My changes are always patrolled by my co-authors, thus no vandalisms. Regards;--Nephiliskos (talk) 09:21, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Content for WMH[edit]


Thank you for your message. I've requested a username change purely because I take your advise it could be misconstrued as COI - which it isn't. This article and any amendments are purely for factual purposes, not promotional. No monies or any other kind of promotion has taken place with the items cited. Perhaps a little too much citing has taken place; however that was purely to ensure that the content remained factual and not "fluffy" or "promotional" in anyway.

Please advise further with any further recommendations. I wish to follow all guidelines.

Many thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wmhagency (talkcontribs) 16:24, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Disclaimer above CityFALCON article[edit]

Dear, Dl2000!

Above the article on CityFALCON ( there is a window which state, that the article uses unreliable sources, but there are links on such sources as Forbes, Businessinsider etc. What shall I do to make sources more reliable? Thank you in advance! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gevlare (talkcontribs) 08:46, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Disclaimer CityFALCON[edit]

DI2000 thank you for the reply and for the link! I have read wiki article on reliable sources. Now I suggest to delete any links that you consider not to be reliable. They are almost duplicate each other so any valuable information won't be lost. Thank you in advance! Preceding unsigned comment added by Gevlare (talkcontribs) 10:47, 9 February 2016 (UTC)


Greetings. I have a couple of queries about your edits to Daulis Prescott: 1. Could you point me to a list on WP where it says that Colombia uses DMY instead of MDY, or other such regional variations (as in what they use in the rest of South America, Africa, etc.); 2. What is a "timewarped ref"? At WP:CITESTYLE and WP:CITEVAR, it clearly states that any style may be used, so why change it to citeweb after I spent all that time overhauling the article? (i.e. [I]t is normal practice to defer to the style used by the first major contributor.) Mac Dreamstate (talk) 23:47, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

That explains it—I thought "timewarped" meant a broken ref or something, rather than a numerical error. Mac Dreamstate (talk) 17:27, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Policy discussion in progress[edit]

There is a policy discussion in progress at the Manual of Style which affects the capitalization of "Someone like You", a question in which you previously participated. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. — LlywelynII 02:21, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Conflict of interest[edit]


Thank you very much for your notification about my edits to the "Stefan Reif" article.

I'm not clear, however, how my submission is a conflict of interest. Yes, I did write a book on this topic, and I did speak with and exchange several emails with Professor Reif for my book. But since then I've had very little interaction with him at all. I was really just trying to complete the record on his work. Is this a conflict of interest?

Thanks in advance for your response,

Promotional Material[edit]


You flagged my edits on Stefan Reif as "Promotional Material." In reality, I was just trying to complete the record on the work of this important scholar - I have had very little contact with him since I wrote my book about the Cairo Genizah. Is it possible for you to reconsider your decision?

Thanks in advance

Tortilla chip[edit]

Saw your revert and thanks. The article is the subject of a university course and well-meaning efforts by several students ("grumble, grumble, why'd they trash the infobox? sheesh!"). Their instructor posted a rather lengthy outline on the Talk page. The article's on my watchlist, but after one revert, I decided to grit my teeth and wait until the current term passes to go back and clean up the aftermath of the party. Not that I'm against cleaning up as it goes along, but I've decided for the sake of my own sanity to join Mr. Thoreau for the season. Just sayin', is all. Cheers!

Your recent message[edit]

Hi, thanks for your message. The edits to the article in question were made in line with edits made to the world passport article which were made by concensus. Consequently, these edits were necessary on the WSA article as well, in order to maintain cohesion between articles. As I'm sure this is just a good will mistake on your behalf, I've reverted your reversion. --Île flottante (talk) 17:35, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Response to your message[edit]

The edit of mine which you reverted was simply trying to restore the page to its original content. It has since 2014 been hijacked by an IP to create a fake biographical article which I have now nominated for deletion at AFD. Ytfc23 (talk) 21:51, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ytfc23: Fair enough, but next time you replace an article with a redirect to a completely unrelated subject, you need some sort of justification in the edit summary. It would also have helped to verify and tag the refs, raise the hoax concerns earlier, maybe with a talk page discussion. Dl2000 (talk) 22:16, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I realise that, it was a case that I had never seen before of an entirely fictitious page, but yes I should have made it clear in my edit summary the reasons for my edit. Ytfc23 (talk) 22:18, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Visa requirements for Malaysian citizens[edit]

Hi. Do you know what means inuse-section? Why did you amend the article with this warning? --Norvikk (talk) 20:04, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

I didn't put in the inuse-section, but ideally it means it shouldn't be left unedited for about six hours. Dl2000 (talk) 20:15, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Nikki Laoye[edit]

I reverted your removal of copyvio content. is dated February 20, 2015 is the state of the article 2015-01-12T03:47:17. The copy was already present in the Wikipedia article before the article was written. Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:47, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Murat Han[edit]

The creator of Murat Han did keep on removing the BLP unsourced tag-you might want to give him another warning for that! Wgolf (talk) 23:14, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

@Wgolf: Based on this edit, the tag removal coincided with an attempt to add a ref, although that ref link didn't work properly (i.e. did not go to a page relating to Murat Han or the Bliss film). Given the attempt at referencing, a tag removal warning didn't seem accurate at this point. However, will msg the creator with an unref BLP welcome message for now.

Enrique Alfaro[edit]

Hello, I did say why I changed the article: "Redirecting to more relevant Enrique Alfaro Ramírez current municipal president of Guadalajara" I also added another page with the overwritten article content's here Enrique Alfaro Rojas and added a disambiguation template on the Enrique Alfaro. Enrique Alfaro Ramírez is much more relevant than Enrique Alfaro Rojas, you can see it here:

Thanks for checking that everything was alright, but please reverse the change. I think it's justified and according to Wikipedia Policies. --Shishanyu (talk) 03:13, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Reverted your changes, it makes the articles more inaccurate. Also why are you deleting the references? They are valid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shishanyu (talkcontribs) 03:29, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Again, I made separate articles for each person, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez and Enrique Alfaro Rojas the one you are saying should be on Enrique Alfaro. Like I said and proved with just queries in google, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez is more relevant by a wide margin than Rojas. Please stop unfixing this. --Shishanyu (talk) 21:14, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

I'll be moving the page contents to the Rojas article to preserve the history, if that's your concern. But please understand that Ramirez is the most relevant of the two so the redirection should go to Ramirez. --Shishanyu (talk) 21:27, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Willy Fick[edit]

Hello Dl2000. I almost made the same mistake (changing the format to DMY because of the template) until I checked the article's edit history, which shows use of MDY format from the start. Here's the edit in which the {{Use dmy dates}} template was added: [3] Note that at this point the article was a tiny stub and there weren't any dates in it at all; therefore the template was improper, as the MOS does not mandate any one style for articles that have no "strong ties to a particular English-speaking country" (quoting MOS:DATETIES). The editor who has helpfully expanded this article can use their preferred format—the article does need more refs though. Ewulp (talk) 06:12, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

2016–17 Azerbaijan Premier League[edit]

Hi Dl2000, please explain how my edit to 2016–17 Azerbaijan Premier League was disruptive? At the moment the page has been created as a pure copy of the 2015–16 Azerbaijan Premier League article, notice the results section etc. My edit removed all of this inaccurate information regarding the 2016-17 season, and also included references as to the reduction of teams from 10 to 8. --Dave logic (talk) 06:51, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Some updates for:

Established in 1987, the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) is the Asia-Pacific’s largest event for documentary, factual and unscripted screen content. [1]

The Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) was first established in 1987 and began life as a biennial conference. Since then it has moved around different regions of Australia, mostly being held in capital cities. Over the years it has grown from being a small conference with a few international guests, to being a major international annual event. The annual event acts as a conference and marketplace that aims to support both the creative and commercial needs of the industry.

The $5,000 Stanley Hawes Award was established in 1997 to honour Stanley Hawes as first Producer-in-Chief of the Australian National Film Board and Commonwealth Film Unit. The award recognises the significant support he gave independent filmmakers in the documentary sector and is thus awarded to a person or organisation that makes an outstanding contribution to the documentary sector in Australia.[2] The award is announced annually at the Australian International Documentary Conference. [7]

I am hoping you can help me update information about the Australian International Documentary Conference. The page hasn't been updated for a long time and a lot of facts are missing. Some of the links are also broken. I understand that it presents as a Conflict of Interest if I update the page, so I'm hoping you can review my proposed changes to see that they represent facts only: Brittarthur (talk) 05:23, 22 June 2016 (UTC) Britt Arthur

Symbols of Indian states and territories[edit]

The edit u reverted is not good. The page i created is both short and more better pls advice how do i better that page --Varun  04:33, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

@VarunFEB2003: Actually, your recent edit to that page had some serious problems. First, you wiped out 84 citations and replaced these with citations of other Wikipedia articles, something that generally should never be done, as explained in WP:CIRCULAR. The one citation which wasn't to a Wikipedia article didn't seem to be there before, and the source ( is a user-supplied blog-type repository that does not seem sufficiently reliable (see WP:RS). Also, some of the table layouts were mangled, with some tables overlapping each other which caused a visual problem. There is generally nothing wrong with making an article more concise and improving the layout, but it is generally not a good idea to eliminate relevant verifiable content without good reason. You should probably test major table and layout changes outside the article e.g. in a "sandbox" or user space page. Better yet, you should probably discuss through your intended changes at Talk:Symbols of Indian states and territories before making further attempts. Dl2000 (talk) 17:37, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

BMW R100[edit]

Hi! Thank you for assisting with the BMW R100 article. The article was altered from the BMW R100S article... the BMW R100S is but a small subset of the BMW R100 series of motorcycles (several references note the BMW R100RS and BMWR100RT were produced in much higher numbers and were groundbreaking vehicles, while the BMW R100S was derivative of the BMW R90S), which did not have its own article, and was subsequently rewritten.

I'll alter the template to fit the BMW R100 generically, vice the BMW R100S specifically. If you have other specific concerns please let me know. Macboots (talk) 05:59, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Subhan Sahib[edit]

Hi, just wanted to give you a heads up that I reverted your changes to the Subhan Sahib page. Just for some history, as it has caused a bit of confusion. The creator of the page had used the Asaf Ali page as a 'template' and then started to modify it. I was one of those who inadvertently and innocently reverted his modifications (with a failure to cite a RS reason), which 'restored' the template close to it's original state. I also tagged it with a CSD, which the administrator Iridescent then knocked back. He also restored the content that I had inadvertently reverted. You then came in and reverted the page back to it's Asaf Ali 'template', thinking that it was vandalism, when it was just a couple of humbled editors trying to make good faith and constructive edits. Quite an understandable mistake. I hope that has somewhat helped. Cheers. David.moreno72 (talk) 04:03, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
