June 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Ebyabe. An edit that you recently made to Ryan Gage seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Ebyabe talk - Repel All Boarders ‖ 18:16, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Ryan Gage. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continual disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. Stop using that photo. It's not appropriate to use it in an article about the actor, and the non-free license does not allow its use here. Meters (talk) 19:33, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Bare link tagging[edit]

Instead of tagging dozens and dozens of article's for barelinks, you might consider using WP:Refill to fix them instead. -- ferret (talk) 15:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. You added it to an article that had two bare links .. out of 40. {{link rot}} is for articles with serious bare link problems. -- GreenC 21:03, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

And you added it to an article with nine (stable) bare links out of 62; an article which is obviously under active revision. If you would like to be helpful, jump in and fill those remaining links. Oddjob84 (talk) 13:03, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Doomdorm64, and welcome to Wikipedia. All or some of your addition(s) to Contrasting and categorization of emotions have been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without evidence of permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:04, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

Asperger syndrome[edit]

Please note that per WP:SPS, wikis are not considered reliable sources and should not be used in citations. Thank you. DonIago (talk) 20:16, 18 October 2017 (UTC)


Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:56, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)


Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks!

That source[edit]

Hi there, regarding my revert: when you find a source such as this, it is always a good idea to go to its main page and check the publishing data at the bottom. In this case it just gives the title of the book and "PediaPress" as a publisher. That should ring an alarm bell Face-smile.svg. Indeed, I searched for a few sentence fragments in the book, and they all pointed to our Time article. This book is based on Wikipedia, so we definitley cannot use it here per wp:CIRCULAR. Cheers - DVdm (talk) 08:52, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

By the way, see also what it says on the first page: - DVdm (talk) 09:02, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

November 2017[edit]

Please stop making disruptive edits, as you did at Mario Kart DS.

If you continue to disrupt Wikipedia, you may be blocked from editing. You have already been warned by @Ferret, GreenC, and Oddjob84: about your needless and senseless use of {{linkrot}}. It's your job to fill in the links (WP:REFILL), and not to put warnings on a minority or nonexistent issue. Stop doing this, and go back and undo it immediately. This is disruptive editing and users can be blocked for this.Smuckola(talk) 07:45, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

And then you just did it again. — Smuckola(talk) 09:30, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

ArbCom 2017 election voter message[edit]

Scale of justice 2.svgHello, Doomdorm64. Voting in the 2017 Arbitration Committee elections is now open until 23.59 on Sunday, 10 December.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

If you wish to participate in the 2017 election, please review the candidates and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:42, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Possible script error[edit]

This edit broke a citation, apparently with some sort of script or semi-automated tool. Can you please fix the script and run it again? Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:39, 20 January 2018 (UTC)


Good point here - you're not kidding! I might try and have a go later and reduce the current, ludicrous, list - or hope that someone else steps in and does so before I get round to it. Thanks and happy editing, DBaK (talk) 14:32, 4 April 2018 (UTC)
