Your contributed article, Sony T Series cameras[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Sony T Series cameras. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – List of Sony Cyber-shot cameras. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at List of Sony Cyber-shot cameras – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. --evrik (talk) 05:34, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Haughton Elevator Company[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Haughton Elevator Company, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Triplestop (talk) 07:37, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Loch Ness Monster[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Loch Ness Monster shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

RE: Donetsk People's Republic Flag[edit]

It's okay! The first article was located at Flag of the Donetsk People's Republic; however, since Wikipedia consensus has established that it should be deleted (deletion discussion here), it's no longer available. Hope that helps, § DDima 04:58, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Since the first article was deleted, would that mean the article I created was deleted by mistake? Elevatorrailfan (talk) 05:04, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Well , since the first article was already deleted, creating a second one would not necessarily be correct since Wikipedia editors have established consensus that the article should not exist in the first place. There is a reason why it was deleted, and it is listed in that discussion that I linked to above. I would recommend not to recreate it, or rather place the information somewhere else regarding the DNR... § DDima 07:29, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Minor edits[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Kingdom of Scotland, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Mutt Lunker (talk) 23:19, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Colony of New South Wales[edit]

Please note that the colony of New South Wales is not the same as the present New South Wales. The original colony included most of the Australian mainland, extending west into what is now Western Australia. It's placement in an irrelevant section of New South Wales can be confusing to non-Australian readers.

Infobox successors and predecessors[edit]

I agree with ‎Tóraí, on articles about states, keep the predecessors and successors as states only. Otherwise we could add Scotland as a successor to Kingdom of Scotland, and so on. It's unnecessary and confusing. That said, the obvious exception is when the article's about a subdivision itself, like Southern Ireland. Regards, Rob984 (talk) 10:18, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Your edit at Greek military junta[edit]

Hi there. I have reverted your edit at Greek military junta because most of your revert was not compliant with WP:MOS. You introduced short dashes where years are supposed to be separated by long dashes. Further, year intervals are not supposed to repeat the whole year for the end year. Also you eliminated the definitive article in front of "Turkish invasion", an action which introduced a grammatical mistake to the article. Going forward, please be more careful with your reversals. Thank you in advance. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 18:24, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Breach of the three-revert rule[edit]

Your recent editing history at Polish United Workers' Party shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted.

Request reason:

Your reason here I was told if I CONTINUED to add certain information. I have not re added that information since then. All I did was add a source and remove unsourced information that was separate from the other information.

Accept reason:

After the last warning indeed no unsourced information was added, and if sourced information was removed I didn't see the sources. This seems more of a misunderstanding than deliberate disruption. Huon (talk) 16:29, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Just dropping in to look at this block. There seems to be a bit of a feud between Elevatorrailfan and Nyttend. I think both editors need to stop their edit warring and go use the talk page, or, preferably WP:DRN. Did Nyttend get a block? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 12:09, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Elevatorrailfan has been persistently adding unsourced information to articles, plus hoaxing by adding a source that plainly didn't back up his additions; see the warning I gave just above here for the first, and this for the second]. Following that warning, he immediately began deleting information that was backed up by maps in articles (see the last three edits to Hardy Township, Holmes County, Ohio), embodying the fifth example in WP:POINT.

If I had a penny every time I saw an IP add some unsourced information to an article that turned out to be possible to source and factually true (or at least believable) I could retire. Beulah Beach, Ohio says "It is located within Vermilion Township" so certainly that information added by Elevatorrailfan appears to be plausible from my outsider view. I see good faith attempts to improve the encyclopedia. As I said, I suggest going to the talk page or DRN; remember that new or inexperienced users won't necessarily know the ins and outs of citation templates, and threatening them with warnings and blocks is probably counter-productive.

I have accepted the unblock request but would ask Elevatorrailfan to make sure their future edits are backed up by reliable sources. I would ask Nyttend to be a little less bitey and to try whether others' edits can be improved and sourced instead of blindly reverting. Just to take your own example of Hardy Township, Holmes County, Ohio: All the information about Millersburg, Ohio that Elevatorrailfan added is contained in the Millersburg, Ohio article, with sources. Would adding the sources have been that much more difficult than clicking "Undo"? Huon (talk) 16:29, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Michigan and Minnesota[edit]

I've again restored the information you removed from the Demographics sections of these two articles. The first time, I was concerned that you'd removed valid information without explanation; and the second time because, after reviewing a variety of other state articles, I determined that the information you removed appears to be reported, in more or less the same fashion, in the majority of articles about individual states. (I confess I did not look at all 50 and it is of course possible that my sample was not representative, but that's what I discovered after looking at maybe 8 states.) The information is commonly reported, and is of long-standing in both these articles; that being the case I suggest you raise the issue of its removal on the articles' Talk pages rather than just remove it again. Perhaps too there is a project page that lays out a relevant guideline or practice - I looked at WP:Demographics and WP:STATES but neither obviously would have the right information. I'll keep looking but there too suggest you do the same, while the articles remain as they have been. Thanks! JohnInDC (talk) 10:58, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Slavic Americans, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bessemer, Pennsylvania (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Strange, I thought I reverted the edit that added "Brexit caused this and World War 3 has begun. S*it's gettin real.". I don't understand why it appears that I added it. Elevatorrailfan (talk) 22:47, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

List of active separatist movements in North America map[edit]

Hey, not sure if you got my message on commons but could you possibly add California as well as any other jurisdictions that might be missing to the map on the List of active separatist movements in North America article. Thanks! Prcc27🌍 (talk) 21:38, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

United States[edit]

Howdy. Do we have to add the president-elect & vice president-elect to the infobox? Why not just wait until Trump/Pence succeed Obama/Biden on 20 January 2017. Avoid showing 4 of them simultaneously. GoodDay (talk) 04:44, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

WP:NOETHNICGALLERIES[edit]

Thanks for pointing me to this RfC, I did not know about it, and thanks for correcting the article French Canadians. I went through the RfC and it makes it clear that "photo montage/gallery are not be used to illustrate articles on ethnic groups", but it does not offer a solution on how to illustrate them? What is the solution? Thanks, Amqui (talk) 16:02, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
