Internet censorship[edit]


Thinking for a while seriously; the actual internet censorship cannot be controlled or suppressed directly just like an 'Ad hoc' is used for applying extra purposes about what the article means itself. So the first line becomes too fallacy. That's the point for changing the text that should be read like "is the inquiry of interventional control or suppression".

Anyway thanks for your work and kindness. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:41, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Well, i have seen how you won't answer my section, but i must add this point: what can't you ensure about Internet censorship will: could be called as well under control and suppression from order people? isn't right? or from offenders?. It is fallacy. Have a nice day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:15, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia's policies on original research dictate that you can't just change the definition of a term only because you think that there is something wrong with it. You must provide a reliable source that directly supports the claim that "Internet censorship is the inquiry of interventional control or suppression of what can be accessed, published, or viewed on the Internet". Your IP address is from Spain, so I'm guessing that you're not a native English speaker. Perhaps what you mean to say is that the goal or purpose of Internet censorship is the control or suppression of what can be accessed, published, or viewed on the Internet? "Inquiry" is far from the correct word to use in this case, because it is synonymous with "investigation". Either way, your edit is archived in the page history for now, and you are free to re-add it if you are able to include a citation. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 11:37, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

TAILS page edit adding ver 2.5[edit]

I added it because it lets people know what bugs are currently being worked on and when they can expect the fixes to be released.

Thank you for reverting my mistake. I was trying to use the new 'visual editing' feature. Then went back to code editing. I caught my problem, but you caught it 1st. :)

Hopefully you will re-add or allow me to re-add the ver 2.5 post. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Whiterussian1974 (talkcontribs) 16:25, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia's WP:BALL policy states that individual scheduled or expected future events should be included only if the event is notable, and that dates are not definite until the event actually takes place. #4 of WP:IINFO states that Wikipedia articles should not list software versions that haven't been the subject of independent, third-party coverage. Version 2.5 is an upcoming minor release that hasn't been the subject of third-party coverage. Wikipedia policy is quite clear that it should not be listed until it is actually released, and that once it is replaced by version 2.6, it should be removed from the table if it hasn't been the subject of third-party coverage. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 16:46, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

JA page[edit]

Hi Dodi,

Thanks for removing that text. I'm admittedly frustrated with the guy; I didn't intend to be uncivilized, but it's hard to be patient with his constant POV-pushing. QuelleChose1 (talk) 19:02, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

North Central College edit[edit]

Hello Dodi 8238, when I edited North Central College and added Ann Durkin Keating as a faculty, is because she is a noteworthy person. Google her and you'll find that she edited the Encyclopedia of Chicago and was named Chicagoan of the Year in 2005 by Chicago (magazine). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:302:D131:DB30:C516:88CF:B14F:5E26 (talk) 15:25, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

As I said in my edit summary, please see WP:ALUMNI. People who are added to such lists should have pre-existing articles before they are added. If you wish to create such an article, please first confirm that the subject qualifies for a separate, stand-alone article according to Wikipedia's notability guideline. People are presumed notable if they have received significant coverage in multiple published secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent of each other, and independent of the subject. Alternatively, the subject must meet at least one of the conditions listed in WP:NACADEMIC, as substantiated through reliable sources. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 16:05, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

I wanted to share something on wikipedia[edit]

Hi Dodi, I'm new here... I just wanted to share WhatsApp Status encyclopedia on the WhatsApp page. Kindly suggest the proper way as I'm not aware about the Wikipedia rules... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Faiz7869 (talkcontribs) 19:40, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

I'm glad you asked. Wikipedia is not a social networking service like Facebook or Twitter. The external link that you would like to add to the WhatsApp article appears to be a personal website, and is therefore inappropriate. Please do not add it to the Wikipedia article about WhatsApp. Wikipedia is not a collection of links, nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Inappropriate links include, but are not limited to, links to personal websites, links to websites with which you are affiliated (whether as a link in article text, or a citation in an article), and links that attract visitors to a website or promote a product. See the external links guideline and spam guideline for further explanations. Because Wikipedia uses the nofollow attribute value, its external links are disregarded by most search engines. My advice is to use an alternative outlet to share your link. Thank you. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 20:00, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Zeek Wikipedia Page[edit]

Hi Dodi. I've been following your edits on Wikipedia and I wanted to ask if you could assist in improving the article about Zeek an award-winning Israeli start-up. The company's coverage is far more notable than it appears in the article. Since I have COI regarding this matter I seek the help from experienced Wikipedia editors to help improve the article Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Eddard 'Ned' Stark (talk) 21:46, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

The article appears to have been improved somewhat since you asked for my assistance. I appreciate your openness regarding your conflict of interest. I have taken the liberty of adding your username to the {{connected contributor}} template at the top of the Zeek talk page. You are welcome to propose changes on the Zeek talk page (see the {{request edit}} template) or on the conflict-of-interest noticeboard; keep in mind that your proposals may or may not be acted upon. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 10:57, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Tense in biographies[edit]

Thanks for fixing Moxie Marlinspike. I believe present tense is not just a good idea but actually part of the MOS, at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Biographies#Tense. Kendall-K1 (talk) 19:42, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. I'll try to refer to the MOS if something similar comes up in the future. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 19:58, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

About the recent edit in " List of free and open-source Android applications"[edit]

hi dodi, I would not want to challange your decision. But i would surely like convey everyone that the edits i made was not a promotional content.

Open Source projects generally dont produce any profit or commertial income for the creator. And they are mostly for the benefit of the public and they can be used freely by the people without paying any money to the creator of the project. Even though the topic doesnt have a third party sources but its not a promotional content. Treeofkarma (talk) 10:55, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello! I'm guessing that you are referring to this edit, in which I reverted the addition of an application called Nearby Shops to List of free and open-source Android applications. As you can see from my edit summary, I did not revert the addition because of WP:PROMO, but because of WP:WTAF. That list is not meant to be a directory of every free and open-source Android application in existence (WP:NOTDIRECTORY). There is a concensus among the editors of that list that we should only include applications that already have their own Wikipedia articles (WP:WTAF). If you can find significant coverage about a free and open-source Android application in reliable sources that are independent of the subject (WP:GNG), you are welcome to write a Wikipedia article about it and include it in the list. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 12:47, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
