Your inaccurate post[edit]

Re. this edit. You are factually wrong to claim I am the only editor doubtful of the bestseller claims (apparently you did not even look on the relevant talk page before saying such a thing). I would add that your taunting me about my topic ban, and continued assumptions of bad faith are in very poor taste. I believe that a retraction, and an apology on this page would be in order.

I read the talk page and stand by my claim - you are the only one who is currently still doubtful. You were banned for POV pushing, and it seems you are still at it, so no, there will be no apology, and no retraction. Firkin Flying Fox (talk) 05:04, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
You are mistaken. BTW might I ask, Have you ever edited under a different username/account? Prunesqualor billets_doux 11:36, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

East Berlin[edit]

I saw that you were previously involved in editing the infobox of East Germany, to remove a qualifier that another editor added to the capital ([1]). That issue has resurfaced, so perhaps you woudl like to participate in the discussion here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:East_Germany#Capital_city Jeff Song (talk) 22:42, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

I'll provide my input there, thank you. Firkin Flying Fox (talk) 01:53, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

1rr[edit]

You have violated the 1 revert rule, you are only allowed to revert one time within 24 hours. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 22:49, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I see one revert, of your edit. Where is the second one? Firkin Flying Fox (talk) 22:52, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

The inaccurate and unaffiliated category's were removed on 10th march: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Qal%27at_Bustra&diff=543220218&oldid=523467185

your reverted twice:

1st revert:http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Qal%27at_Bustra&diff=553843716&oldid=553842192

2nd: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Qal%27at_Bustra&diff=553856258&oldid=553854524

--Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 23:21, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I see my change was already undone by someone else - Good luck with the claim that my edit that partially undid something you wrote over two months ago is a "revert" in this context.Firkin Flying Fox (talk) 12:25, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Discretionary sanctions warning[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg The Arbitration Committee has permitted administrators to impose discretionary sanctions (information on which is at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions) on any editor who is active on pages broadly related to the Arab–Israeli conflict. Discretionary sanctions can be used against an editor who repeatedly or seriously fails to adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, satisfy any standard of behavior, or follow any normal editorial process. If you inappropriately edit pages relating to this topic, you may be placed under sanctions, which can include blocks, a revert limitation, or an article ban. The Committee's full decision can be read at the "Final decision" section of the decision page.

Please familiarise yourself with the information page at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, with the appropriate sections of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Procedures, and with the case decision page before making any further edits to the pages in question. This notice is given by an uninvolved administrator and will be logged on the case decision, pursuant to the conditions of the Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions system.

WP:ARBPIA3#500/30[edit]

Pr WP:ARBPIA3#500/30, all "accounts with fewer than 500 edits, and accounts with less than 30 days tenure are prohibited from editing any page that could be reasonably construed as being related to the Arab-Israeli conflict. This prohibition may be enforced by reverts, page protections, blocks, the use of pending changes, and appropriate edit filters."

And yes, that means you at the moment, as you have less than 200 edits. Please edit in a less contentious area of Wikipedia, until you reach the required limit, thank you, Huldra (talk) 22:06, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

I have been editing for several years now. . Firkin Flying Fox (talk) 08:58, 10 July 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, but according to this, you have less than 200 edits. A minimum of 500 edits is required to making edits "related to the Arab-Israeli conflict", Huldra (talk) 21:35, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Attention required[edit]

Hi. I have provided three strong reference for the article Saba Faisal nominated for deletion. check the article page for references. Sneha Hurrain (talk) 06:41, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
