December 2016[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Annie Lennox. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been undone.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive. Continual disruptive editing may result in loss of editing privileges. You need consensus for an image change - Mlpearc (open channel) 02:49, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Hmm. Disruptive editing? I don't see how it's fair to accuse my edits as being "disruptive"? I am clear on guidelines and polices. Thank you. Goodreg3 (talk) 02:52, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
Did you read my edit summaries ? You need consensus for an infobox image change. - Mlpearc (open channel) 02:59, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I did read the edit summaries. Thanks. Goodreg3 (talk) 03:23, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Troon, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page P&O. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Thanks for uploading File:EastAyrshireWhiteLogo.jpeg. The image has been identified as not specifying the copyright status of the image, which is required by Wikipedia's policy on images.

Scotland "politics and governance" edits[edit]

I have reverted these because I believe they do not adhere to WP:NPOV or WP:UNDUE. The "international diplomacy" section largely details what Nicola Sturgeon has been doing since becoming First Minister (visiting California, New York, Ireland and Germany). That might be relevant to her own article, but I don't think it is relevant in a more general article. The first two paragraphs ("devolved government relations") are only sourced to the governments themselves. Is this notable, worth detailing in what is supposed to be a general article about Scotland as a whole? Jmorrison230582 (talk) 11:19, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Scottish cuisine into Scotland. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 19:33, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

South Ayrshire[edit]

Just a heads up as it seems unlikely the contributor in question is going to notify you of this: Sport and politics has replied to you on her user talk page and has added three sections to the South Ayrshire talk page. Brythones (talk) 13:41, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for working together on this one for the better of the South Ayrshire article. It seems anything on the article is not good enough and the user is willing to through any excuse into the pot to argue her case for removal of the content. Goodreg3 (talk) 19:55, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Nicola Sturgeon, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Democratic, Better Together and Edinburgh Agreement (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Proposed deletion of Billy Gilmour (Scottish footballer)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Billy Gilmour (Scottish footballer) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article about a footballer who fails WP:GNG and who has not played in a fully pro league.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Sir Sputnik (talk) 18:47, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

The article is currently stubbed and as I made clear I will be adding to this article over the coming day which will pollute it further in terms of useful information. The article has barely been created for an hour. With the little information on it already, its already being nominated for deletion, but as I said it will be getting added to over the coming days. Please bare with me. Goodreg3 (talk) 18:50, 17 October 2017 (UTC)


Please stop the aggressive personal attacks on this page, and the childish threats. Please use talk to agree what is allowed to be posted on the page before making changes to unsourced claims. If we work together then we can get the age looking better and stop the edit wars you seem to be attempting. Please assume good faith from all other editors. There is no need to just start accusing me and being offensive because I asked for a source for the record label claim. Thats what you are supposed to do on wiki. Once we have a source then we can add this back to the page, but not without oneSimply-the-truth (talk) 20:01, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Simply the truth obviously has an agenda against McManus, which is damaging the credibility of her article. WP:NOTHERE clearly applies. Thanks for keeping an eye on this troll. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:C7D:6A60:8000:1D17:78DA:875C:2EA1 (talk) 21:14, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

It’s a two way street and I can just as easily turn the “personal attacks” rubbish back onto you. You are on my talk page and I could easily accuse you of being abusive. Follow your own advice, provide references to otherwise dispute the claims on the article. If you actually read the edits rather than edit war (yes, you are engaging in an edit war) then you will see a reference had been provided to support the stabilisment of her own record label. Goodreg3 (talk) 18:11, 7 November 2017 (UTC)
Errr? Do you understand what a personal attack is? Please feel free to point any of mine out, ill wait???? There is not source at all anywhere that she set her own record label up? She said she would, that is not a source, you understand that right? I have reported you for making threats that you have the power to ban me etcSimply-the-truth (talk) 14:45, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
Aw please. Get over yourself. If, according to you, I don't have the power to block you, then I highly doubt you have the power to report me for making "threats" (Please, point me to any threat worthy of being reported. Wikipedia Community Guidelines have long been established and there are strict rules and protocols against trolls and sockpuppets such as yourself). So, if I were you, I would quit whilst you are ahead! Goodreg3 (talk) 20:43, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
so you admit im ahead (ie your losing), good, then I will quitSimply-the-truth (talk) 21

Stop threatening me and leaving your "word of warning"[edit]

Your constant harassment has been reported, and your childish threats just literally make me lol. Simply-the-truth (talk) 20:17, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

You clearly haven't accepted a word I have said, which clearly shows your immaturity. I stand by what I say because I'm not wasting my time on you any longer as you are the childish one and being threatening here. I actually totally pity you, I really, really do. Take my word of warning as some kind advice. Your time will come anyway and will get blocked, just don't moan when you do because you had plenty of warning. Now, please, go troll elsewhere. Cherio. Goodreg3 (talk) 20:19, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
My advice to both of you, stop arguing and go on with your lives.--Biografer (talk) 20:28, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
Which is exactly what I am trying to do by reaching out to the user and calling quits. Please visit their talk page and you will see this was ignored and actually removed by the user. Goodreg3 (talk) 20:29, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I seen their talkpage, but if they don't want to discuss it there, they should discuss it here. Correct me if I am wrong, but they suppose to discuss it somewhere. My other suggestion would be to seek dispute resolution at AN/I.--Biografer (talk) 16:58, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
What's even more strange is that he leaves the welcome message, although that can be removed as well. But maybe he keeps it because of helpful links, which I can see he is clearly not here to abide by.--Biografer (talk) 17:03, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
@Goodreg3 - Simply the Truth is an immature person who is only here to wind people up - that's all. Best to ignore him and wait for an admin to pick up on his disruption and ban him. His behaviour isn't normal but with people like this, it's best just to ignore them otherwise they will keep going on and on and on and on and on..... Peace! LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 18:23, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
If you really want to call it quits, im all for it mate. Must admit your tone (if you can have tone when typing!!) did wind me up, as im sure I did to you as well. I really was trying to improve that article, and hate unsourced claims as you know now! So, both in the wrong. Apology from my side, lets start again. Friends?Simply-the-truth (talk) 21:01, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
Not sure who you are talking to, but if it's me, no. You are very weird and I have no desire to be your friend. No offence. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 22:36, 20 November 2017 (UTC)
I was replying to the ediditor whos talk page this is, Goodreg3?Simply-the-truth (talk) 13:35, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Who says this talk page belongs to Goodreg3? Do you have a source for it? If not, it's not true. I hate unsourced claims. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 19:19, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
No need to be childish re this? I was trying to start again with Goodreg3, I wasnt talking to you, so please can you stop abusing their talk page — Preceding unsigned comment added by Simply-the-truth (talkcontribs) 12:38, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
Childish? What if I am a child? How dare you assume my age or imply there is something wrong with the way children act? Please stop these unwarranted and relentless personal attacks on my good character immediately. LoveEverybodyUnconditionally (talk) 19:02, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
Dear friends. Can this please be taken elsewhere? Simply-the-truth's statement of apology has been taken in good faith. Thank you. Goodreg3 (talk) 19:37, 23 November 2017 (UTC)


People are free to remove messages from their own talk page. Please don't revert anyone else's cleanup of their own talk page as you did here. Admins can enforce this rule if needed. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 21:29, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Copying licensed material requires proper attribution[edit]

Hi. I see in a recent addition to South Ayrshire you included material from a webpage that is available under an Open Government Licence. That's okay, but you have to give attribution so that our readers are made aware that you copied the prose rather than wrote it yourself. I've added the attribution for this particular instance. Please make sure that you follow this legal requirement when copying from compatibly-licensed material in the future. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 14:53, 2 December 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Believers (Deacon Blue album), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Rock and Pop (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

August 2018[edit]

Information icon Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions, such as the edit you made to Eurovision Young Musicians 2018, did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make test edits, please use the sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Edinburgh is in the United Kingdom. You can also see that the colors in the EYM logo are the ones of the Union Jack flag.Dimsar01 Talk ⌚→ 19:28, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes Edinburgh is in the United Kingdom, and yes the logo shows the British flag colours, however, the argument could also be the host broadcaster is BBC Scotland (only applicable to Scottish broadcasting, therefore, could be argued Scotland is credited with hosting titles). However, to avert confusion, both Scotland and United Kingdom has been added, as no matter what way you look at it, Edinburgh is in Scotland, and the main broadcast itself spoke solely of Scotland and Edinburgh being the Capital of Scotland, no mention of the United Kingdom. Goodreg3 (talk) 19:30, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Goodreg3: As I can see in your user page, you support the independence of Scotland. Your opinion is respected but in WP we try to have a neutral point of view. Also, in all song contest infoboxes, we never add the region of the city; just the city and the country. —Dimsar01 Talk ⌚→ 19:34, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but what has me supporting Scottish independence got to do with correctly displaying the geographical location of cities? That is a rather narrow minded viewpoint if I may say so myself. The adding of this information has absolutely nothing to do with my support of Scottish independence. Also, Scotland is not a "Region" as you describe it, it is a country (please see Countries of the United Kingdom, which refers to the term "countries within a country"}. Granted, the United Kingdom is the sovereign state, but Scotland is by no means a "region". Thanks! Goodreg3 (talk) 19:38, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
