Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to David Cesarani. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Binksternet (talk) 07:04, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy by adding commentary and your personal analysis into articles, as you did at Justin Tomlinson, you may be blocked from editing. Binksternet (talk) 07:08, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at League of Saint George, you may be blocked from editing. Binksternet (talk) 07:11, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you violate Wikipedia's biographies of living persons policy by inserting unsourced or poorly sourced defamatory or otherwise controversial content into an article or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Searchlight (magazine).

I have drafted an article about the British 1950s singer, Yana and submitted it for review. Someone unknown to me has now helped by editing it to put it into the correct format on the page (thanks for that), but how do I change the name of the article to "Yana" (stage name) rather than "Pamela Guard" (her real name)?
- Helped Renaming an article is performed by moving it. In this case to e.g. Draft:Yana (singer). Let me know if you want me to do it for you. Sam Sailor Talk! 10:34, 27 December 2015 (UTC) (please WP:PING when replying)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dan Eliasson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Somali. 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.

Your edits to Amanda Solloway
Hello, I have reverted your edits to Amanda Solloway since the article read more like a tabloid scandal piece than an encyclopedia article. You also used unreliable sources to cite some details and added some information that seemed like original research. Please familiarise yourself with our policy concerning biographies of living people before editing the article again. Thank you, This is Paul (talk) 17:59, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
- Your efforts in expanding the article are appreciated, but at the same time it's important to stay neutral. Several of your edits were sourced from the Daily Mail, the use of which is a definite no no on Wikipedia, especially when dealing with a controversial topic such as her husband's business affairs. Much of the rest was bordering on the trivial, a case in point being: "Amanda Solloway's maiden name was Solloway, according to her official Parliamentary biography, but newspapers refer to her husband's surname as also being Solloway...During the election campaign, she claimed 10 years' residence in or around Derby, though her present party literature online increases that to 20 years." I hasten to add that you didn't cite anything giving the ten year claim. Also, the stuff about her voting with the government on the changes to Employment and Support Allowance is not a specific thing to her since all but a few of the Parliamentary Conservative Party voted for them. What would have been worth noting is if she had either spoken up in defence of the changes, or against them. This is Paul (talk) 13:25, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the name of Conservative Friends of Israel on Stephen Crabb's page. However, it is never appropriate to cite Wikipedia as a source (see Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a reliable_source). I've updated the article to isntead use the source used by the other Wikipedia article.
It's generally fine to copy references across from other articles, and this is usually the best alternative to citing Wikipedia - provided you've checked out that the source does indeed say what you're using it to reference. It's generally a bad idea just to copy a source without checking it, as this can amplify errors or introduce misunderstandings. TSP (talk) 10:59, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Ségolène Royal, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Melle (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.)
