Comment from Rodney11128[edit]

Do I talk to you on here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rodney11128 (talkcontribs) 16:51, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

You can, but if the question is about an edit to an article, you should go to that article, click on Talk near the upper left of the page, then click on New Section and ask your question. (If this is about the article that you created for K.J. Brent, click on these two links to find out why he doesn't meet WP's notability requirements right now: WP:NGRIDIRON, WP:GNG) EricEnfermero (Talk) 17:00, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Ok so it is gonna be deleted cause he has not played in a game yet and my sources were not good? Rodney11128 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 17:09, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Playing in an NFL game is the easiest way to meet notability guidelines, because it doesn't look like Brent has received enough third-party coverage to meet WP:GNG. To me, it's not about the sources you put in the article; there are not enough available sources anywhere to say that he gets coverage beyond routine sports reporting. He left South Carolina after getting only a handful of receptions a year, didn't impress enough at Wake Forest to even get drafted, and now is on an NFL practice squad. The article will be deleted unless the PROD is challenged, and even that would likely lead to a separate deletion process called AFD. If we were talking about someone on the active roster who would probably play in a game in the next few weeks, it wouldn't be worth the hassle to pursue deletion. This is clearly a different case though. EricEnfermero (Talk) 17:27, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Because Brent performed well in the pre season there is a chance that he gets picked up by another team off the raiders Practise squad but I guess I could store the page somewhere until that happens and if that happens — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rodney11128 (talkcontribs) 18:18, 5 September 2016 (UTC)


I see that you have the article Nursing assessment on a to-do list on one of you user pages. I did a search of what links to that article and your user page appeared. Just thought I would let you know and if you have ideas for improving what I'm trying to improve, just jump right in and we can make it even better. The Best of Regards,

Barbara (WVS) (talk) 23:15, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for this note, Barbara. I remember placing a few nursing-specific articles on a user page of mine for planned cleanup, but then I became very interested in writing or expanding biographical entries of nurses and doctors, and somehow I just never came back to that one. I have a bunch of clinical topics on my watchlist, but I have mostly done minor cleanup (caps/punctuation fixes, etc) on those. I will have to peek in on the assessment article, but it seems like it's already a lot better than it was when you got to it. EricEnfermero (Talk) 03:01, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Lor. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to New Orleans Saints— because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. LorTalk 00:32, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Lor - My edit to that page today cleaned up obvious vandalism (another editor had changed the name of the Saints to the "Aints"). I know it gets a little confusing when there's a lot of back-and-forth vandalism though. EricEnfermero (Talk) 00:36, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

How am I vandalizing the encyclopedia?[edit]

Hi Eric,

I notice you've given me a total of three messages regarding "unconstructive" and "disruptive" editing to the encyclopedia on my talk page. However, I've only been editing the "Wikipedia:Sandbox" page (indeed, on the days you issued the warnings, that was the only activity I was engaged in). How is this "unconstructive" or "disruptive"? I'm very curious as to the reasoning here, as I've contributed to Wikipedia under a variety of pseudonyms since 2004, and never once have I been warned for any edit in the Sandbox (indeed, issuing warnings for Sandbox edits contradicts the very purpose of its existence). Looking forward to hearing back from you!

DaveedDiggs (talk) 18:09, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

I may have misunderstood your intent. Are you asserting that an editor with 12 years of experience, even off and on, requires a sandbox to test out plain text edits about cat litter and workout routines? EricEnfermero (Talk) 01:41, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

DaveedDiggs (talk) 18:09, 22 September 2016 (UTC) I've used the Sandbox as a notepad for 12 years (especially during times when my phone is not working, as is the case now), and I've literally never had an issue before. The Sandbox is constantly changing (literally, several times an hour), so my edits are washed away almost instantaneously. Furthermore, none of my edits are inappropriate, racially-charged/sexually explicit, or contain any sort of private information. The Sandbox is not an area that can be "vandalized," by it's very definition; why is policing it a priority for you? And why are you warning me for something so useless? No content on any webpage is being erased, and in 12 years of using this website, I have never once incurred a warning for anything that's occurred inside the Sandbox. DaveedDiggs (talk) 18:28, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Please consult this: None of my edits broke any of the policies for the sandbox laid out within Wikipedia's own policies. DaveedDiggs (talk) 18:28, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Not really a priority for me to patrol any particular area, but because of using the watchlist, I see certain edits because of having edited those pages previously. Not that big of a deal in the big picture though. EricEnfermero (Talk) 02:24, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
@DaveedDiggs: This edit and this edit would definitely be considered vandalism. If you need to have something to use when your phone isn't working, get a paper notepad and a pencil or pen. While your edits to the sandbox do not technically constitute vandalism, the other two edits do. So far, you have contributed exactly zero constructive edits to Wikipedia. We would be happy to have you do so, but your track record speaks for itself. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 19:33, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
