Does anyone else here think that Wikipedia is run chiefly by losers who have nothing better to do? I have a family, a job, and a life so I don't have time to argue and have constant revision wars with a guy sitting at a computer in his mom's basement.


Hey I'm a total idiot and I don't know how to edit Wikipedia, but you're the guy listed for the U.S. Senate Seniority page, so I figured I'd note here that Richard Blumenthal of CT became a Senator on January 5, 2011, not January 3, 2011, which puts him behind everyone else who was elected in 2010. Thank you in advance for your help with this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.235.45.54 (talk) 01:35, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Issue with content added to conflict article[edit]

Hi. :) If you find a reliable source that discusses "man versus alien", please feel free to add it to Conflict (narrative). However, without one, I'm afraid it's original research, which we can't include. The sources supporting the sentence to which you added the mention here do not mention "man versus alien" as a classification of conflict. For that reason, it's been removed. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 03:14, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Hello, Dr who1975. I'm helping correct some attribution errors in the "List of United States Senators in the Xth Congress by seniority" series and found that on at least one occasion ([1]), the content was added by you. This was obviously quite some time ago, but I just need to stop by to be sure that you are aware that content on Wikipedia is copyrighted. While you are free to reuse it, one of the conditions of reuse is that you must give attribution for where you found it. This is not hard to do; at minimum, we require a note in the edit summary with a link to your source article. As Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia notes, a note on the talk page of the article is also recommended. Without attribution, I'm afraid that content copied from one Wikipedia article to another violates copyright. I have added the minimum attribution in this case - while I'm not sure which article specifically you copied the lead from, I have attributed it to what I believe is the oldest in the series - but need to make sure you are aware of these policies so you will follow the procedure going forward. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop by my talk page. Thanks! --Moonriddengirl (talk) 13:50, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
