Notice Coming here to ask why I reverted your edit? Read this page first...
Welcome to my talk page! I am an administrator here on Wikipedia. That means I am here to help. It does not mean that I have any special status or something, it just means that I get to push a few extra buttons to help maintain this encyclopedia.

If you need help with something, feel free to ask. Click here to start a new topic.
If I have not made any edits in a while, (check) you may get a faster response by posting your request in a more centralized place.

You can email me from this link but in the interests of Wiki-transparency, please message me on this page unless there are pressing reasons to do otherwise. Comments which I find to be uncivil, full of vulgarities, flame baiting, or that are excessively rude may be deleted without response. If I choose not to answer, that's my right; don't keep putting it back. I'll just delete and get annoyed at you.

I have continuously tried to enhance the Wiki Encyclopedia via research I have discovered. If I am doing it incorrectly, please help !e do it correctly.

The information is well documented, cited, and makes a valuable contribution. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ameninhat (talkcontribs) 20:47, 13 April 2017 (UTC)


Could you run a quick checkuser for me, please? I have a probable DUCK sock of an indef blocked user and I need to confirm. The sock is Sjick14, the indef-blocked user is CaptainHog. SPI at the far bottom will have the most current IP and account information, of course. Also, could you check for any sleepers while you are at it? Diannaa usually handles these, but she is offline at the moment. Much appreciated. - NeutralhomerTalk • 13:06 on September 3, 2016 (UTC)

I filed an SPI related to the above request. Just letting you know. - NeutralhomerTalk • 15:25 on September 3, 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! - NeutralhomerTalk • 16:09 on September 3, 2016 (UTC)

Why I Chose Opposition to Trump[edit]

The reason I put the category Opposition to Trump on the pages is because some of these people criticized his polices and behavior. I thought that counts as opposition.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:37, 5 June 2017‎


Sir, @Bloodofox: keeps on reverting to the version he likes, putting back original researh and removing sourced material. So far, he has not put forth an argument for how Edith Hamilton, the most renowned classicist of her era, is a supposedly "poor source", and he keeps on saying buzzwords like "inaccurate". Judging by the content of his user page, it seems futile to reason with him. Do you have any suggestions for what can I do?Music314812813478 (talk) 07:59, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Oh looks like he already responded. Sorry about this.Music314812813478 (talk) 08:04, 16 July 2017 (UTC)


When we type Aheer ,No informations are there for our caste/Tribe. There is a page Ahir but it does not contain informations about Muslim Aheer in Pakistan.Whenever I tried to add or edit ,informations were deleted. How can i do this that they exist. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mujahid.iqbal.aheer (talkcontribs) 11:55, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

@Mujahid.iqbal.aheer: This is because of our fundamental policy WP:VERIFY which means that information has to have been published in reliable sources. You haven't provided any. Doug Weller talk 12:33, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #269[edit]


Hi. I have a quick question: Is the case is explicitly about me or it will examine the other party's behaviour too? -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:59, 17 July 2017 (UTC)


I accidentally reverted one of your edits to a talk device snafu...but promptly restored it. Sorry about that! Clean Copytalk 13:01, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

@Clean Copy: mobile reversion? Been there, done that, got the whole damn wardrobe. Doug Weller talk 13:06, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

Can you help to solve the dispute[1]? Regards, (talk) 16:25, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

The notorious Fertile Crescent map is back[edit]

Hey Doug, checking through some of the Caucasus pages (Ingushetia, Chechnya, etc), I noticed that that good old map that weasel-ishly uses Nichols to attribute the Fertile Crescent civilizations to Nakh peoples is back. I removed it everywhere I could find it. Ironic that I'm always the one dealing with this as my own personal POV is that it is noteworthy that they've been theorized to have come from the Fertile Crescent and be related to its ancient peoples, but obv not in the nationalist POV-pushy way that the map embodies by claiming it as established fact, plus all the other issues with the map. The way it's drawn is bad and pedantic like a child's textbook, Nichols talked about languages not actual peoples which don't always match 100% so its effectively SYN, anachronism as the map is extended south to include Mecca which is given a special note, yet the city likely didn't even exist for the relevant time period of the migration, etc...). I think you know which user I'm talking about. I'm gonna be really busy the next few weeks potentially-- do you have a bit of time to deal with this if it comes back? Cheers. --Yalens (talk) 19:19, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

unreliable refs[edit]

This ip don't want to stop adding this unreliable ref in Battle of Río Salado ([2]). I think it's the ip of this account (Iconic272). Kind Regards -Aṭlas (talk) 19:01, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
