Teahouse talkback: you've got messages![edit]

WP teahouse logo 3.png
Hello, GinnevraDubois. Your question has been answered at the Teahouse Q&A board. Feel free to reply there!
Please note that all old questions are archived. Message added by Joe Roe (talk) 21:36, 4 September 2016 (UTC). You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{teahouse talkback}} template.


Hello! You need to cite your sources when you add new information to the encyclopedia. Please see WP:V for more information about that. I have reverted your changes at William Terriss until you can cite your sources. If you need help with formatting, don't worry -- just add the information, and we'll format it for you: author name, name of the article (or chapter and book), url and/or page number, publisher name and city, date of publication. Also, we don't need to give the street address of his birthplace, although you could name what part of London it was in. Thank you, and Happy Editing! -- Ssilvers (talk) 20:13, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Ginnevra, and Welcome to Wikipedia. Please read the Welcome message at the top of this page, and explore the links about editing, which are good for newcomers. Yes, you can post to my talk page, but we may as well keep the conversation here in one place. Also, when you want to suggest changes to a particular article, it is best to post to the Talk page of that article (there is a Talk tab at the top of every article.). Always sign your name at the end of your message by typing four tildes, like this: ~~~~. That will automatically add your name and a date stamp.
Anyhow, you wrote that you had seen this:
"In 1868 he obtained at the Prince of Wales Theatre, Birmingham, his first remunerated engagement (not a very lucrative one, I8j. per week) as "Chouser" in The Flying Scud. In this he had a most important speech to deliver, which, in his nervousness, he forgot. He managed to blurt out, "Lady Woodbee has come to town"; and when told by a fellow-actor to go on with his part, he said, "and the rest," and retreated. From that day he was known among his comrades by the sobriquet, "The Rest." "
I saw that you added the name of the play, but you did not state your source. Where did you read this? (Include the author name, name of the article (or chapter and book), url and/or page number, publisher name and city, date of publication). BTW, Talk page messages on Wikipedia look better with fewer spaces, so it's better not to make lots of little paragraphs. Thanks! -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:28, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Dispute resolution[edit]

When you make a change on Wikipedia, if another user disagrees with you, they may revert the change. Pursuant to WP:BRD, if you continue to disagree, you should open a discussion on the article's Talk page. Do not re-revert; that is called WP:EDIT WARring. I do not agree that the image that you added to Arthur Sullivan is better than the signed image that we already have from earlier in his career at Leipzig. If you disagree, you should make your argument on the Talk page, and other editors can then join the discussion. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:38, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
