Edit to Kevin Maguire (journalist)
- Regarding Kevin Maguire (journalist). I stand by my revert. Geoff Who, me? 04:57, 26 May 2015 (UTC) to
Sir all the edits are real and genion - Mari Khokhran
sir all the edits are constricitve and real. I have a website of the village aswell
- Malimarri, my problem is with the three edits you made to the Mari Khokhran article. First and foremost, what caught my eye was your adding a Facebook link. Links to Facebook are generally discouraged. Second, and more importantly, the additions were largely copyright violations in that they were verbatim copy/pastes of text from the website you cite above. Third, the additions were rife with misspellings and poor grammar. Last, if as you imply, the website from which you copied the text is your own creation, it would be a primary source based on your original research, which is not a proper reference for a Wikipedia article. Try again, but paraphrase and redraft your text, using third party, verifiable sources. Don't give up, just learn how to do it correctly and keep at it until you have it correct!

what is your major?
Good day, I would like to know what is your major or expertise in history to revise such a topic as Adolf Hitler's being? Thank you for your time. -Jeremy — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:58, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
- Are you writing about a specific edit of mine to one of the articles related to Adolf Hitler? Can you tell me which edit of mine you are writing about? For example, I do not see any of my edits to the main article, Adolf Hitler, recorded in its History during the past two months. I'll be glad to discuss any of my edits with you if you can let me know which specific ones are causing concern. Geoff Who, me? 22:36, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi, you reverted my edit to Matild Manukyan. You can find a reference to my edits here http://www.biyografi.net/kisiayrinti.asp?kisiid=1209 (in Turkish you may need to use Google translate)
Usually her ownership of a brothel in Istanbul is used as an insult against her. However, her ownership of this brothel is due to confiscation of a debt holder, who were previously rented one of her properties. Please re-establish my edits and save Wikpedia becoming part of an insult / hate speech against her.
- Well, I have a problem with using that website as a reference, as it appears to be a self-published website or otherwise fails to qualify as a reliable source. You didn't cite the website, or any other source, for your edit. I suggest you open a discussion of the issues surrounding the nature of her businesses on the article Talk page. The article does need additional sources to support its statements and to improve its quality. I encourage you to seek out and add references to such sources as appropriate.

Orphaned non-free image File:V8 vegetable juice.JPG
Thanks for uploading File:V8 vegetable juice.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).
- Thanks, bot. Added a G7 tag to the image. "You may fire when you are ready, Gridley." Geoff Who, me? 14:44, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
- Referring to Gustav Hellberg. The issues I saw with your adding the references were that neither were reliable sources and, less importantly, that they were not added as inline references, but instead were placed in the 'References' section. And the Russian reference to Гибель хоров и художественная провокация ("Death of choirs and artistic provocation") was first, in Russian in an English encyclopedia and second, nothing more than a bare title, offering no help to a reader wishing to pursue sources for the article. As Cory Doctorow wrote: "There are two secrets to doing amazing research on Wikipedia: (1) Check the sources, not the article and (2) Check the 'Talk' link." [Cory Doctorow, "Homeland" (2013) Tom Doherty Associates, LLC: New York, New York (USA) p. 394, ISBN 978-0-7653-3369-8] Which is to say that, ideally, Wikipedia will lead those who use it to the sources cited as references for statements in its articles.
