Sixth generation of video game consoles[edit]

Please do not accuse me of bias. I admit that the Sega CD was a poor marketing choice by Sega, but it's not even on the list of commercial failures in video gaming. ~ TheJoebro64 (talk) 17:11, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

That's irrelevant, and you knew you were going against the previous talk page discussion. Your edits have all centered on removing mention of Sega CD from that portion, despite all the available sourcing that supports it. -- ferret (talk) 17:24, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Sock again[edit]

Hello again, ferret [and lurkers]. Another Hurulu sock, and this time it's an obvious username. Hitting the regular Alien movie series page and some tour pages. Under.cover. Thanks if you can block! --Jennica / talk 22:34, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

@Jennica:  Done -- ferret (talk) 22:39, 10 May 2017 (UTC)

Editor adding content to his own article[edit]

I have seen a policy about this but I don't know if they should be blocked or notified? User Therickdrummer seems to using his account solely to edit his page Sean Rickman. Evidenced here by his edit summary here. I thought someone should know about it. --Jennica / talk 01:14, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

@Jennica: Depending on the nature of the edits, it's not expressly forbidden. For example, if he adds neutral sourced content, it's not a problem per say... Though generally it's discouraged for subjects to edit their own article. I have left him a COI notice on his talk page (Feel free to read over it for a bit more info on COI policies). Now that he has a notice, if his edits seem particularly slanted towards promotion without any effort to be neutral or follow policies, let me know. -- ferret (talk) 11:40, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Dear Ferret,

We are a team of social scientists conducting research on collaboration among Wikipedians and would love your input. We have prepared a very short survey (it takes just a few seconds to a few minutes) that asks about your political preferences and if you had any experiences collaborating with editors with similar or different preferences. Please fill it out here:
