Adding references can be easy[edit]

Just follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 as shown and fill in the details

Hello! Here's how to add references from reliable sources for the content you add to Wikipedia. This helps maintain the Wikipedia policy of verifiability.

Adding well formatted references is actually quite easy:

  1. While editing any article or a wikipage, on the top of the edit window you will see a toolbar which says "Cite". Click on it.
  2. Then click on "Templates".
  3. Choose the most appropriate template and fill in as many details as you can. This will add a well formatted reference that is helpful in case the web URL (or "website link") becomes inactive in the future.
  4. Click on Preview when you're done filling out the 'Cite (web/news/book/journal)' to make sure that the reference is correct.
  5. Click on Insert to insert the reference into your editing window content.
  6. Click on Show preview to Preview all your editing changes.
  • Before clicking on Save page, check that a References header   ==References==   is near the end of the article.
  • And check that   {{Reflist}}    is directly underneath that header.
7.  Click on Save page. ...and you've just added a complete reference to a Wikipedia article.

You can read more about this on Help:Edit toolbar or see this video File:RefTools.ogv.
Hope this helps, --Gtwfan52 (talk) 07:15, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

@gtw - is there a substing template for this? I think that I know a few editors that could use the same message. anyhow, I use Proveit for all my citing. far faster and easier. -- Aunva6talk - contribs 18:33, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Indians question[edit]

Sure, you can just look it up here: 1920 World Series, 1948 World Series. They have the opponents and the scores of each game. If you're interested in looking up stuff like this, in addition to Wikipedia, has great info. Delaywaves • talk 22:09, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Changing your username[edit]

Hi. You can find instructions and advice for changing your username at Wikipedia:Changing username. It should have all the information you need, but just let me know if you have questions. - Eureka Lott 23:41, 14 August 2014 (UTC)


What are you doing? I removed the tag because it is not longer needed. The Cavs trade is done; read the tag, it says "The subject of this article is in the news regarding a reported trade". It is now official so it is no longer needed. DaHuzyBru (talk) 18:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Wiggins did not play a regular season game for Cleveland, so it does not go in the infobox. DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:12, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
And, another random revert for no good reason. Why are you doing that? DaHuzyBru (talk) 19:17, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Shawn Marion status[edit]

Hello. News sources say that this player has *committed* to sign. He has not actually signed. - Hoops gza (talk) 02:08, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Shawn Marion shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

July 2015[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you may have recently made edits while logged out. Making edits while logged out reveals your IP address, which may allow others to determine your location and identity. Wikipedia's policy on multiple accounts usually does not allow the use of more than one account or IP address by one person. If this was not your intention, then please always remember to log in when editing. Thank you. —Bagumba (talk) 21:46, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm A guy saved by Jesus. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Mike Miller (basketball player), but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. --A guy saved by Jesus (talk) 02:11, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Kendrick Perkins. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. —Bagumba (talk) 02:05, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Please stop making unsourced changes to The Cavaliers roster. Richard Jefferson hasn't officially signed with the team, Cedi Osman is heading overseas for this season, and Kendrick Perkins has agreed to sign with the Pelicans, but hasn't official signed yet. If you can provide a link from saying these signings are true, then please feel free to change them back, but until then, we can't consider any other source official. Thanks Miamiheat631 (talk) 15:19, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Official Signings and Player info boxes[edit]


I just wanted to let you know, you can only change the status of a player once the team announces on their website, that they've signed/resigned the player. Official announcements are made from the nba teams, because they're official. ESPN doesn't count, and reports don't count, it must be from the team website.

Thank you for your cooperation, Cheers, UVABallers (talk) 04:13, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Winkelvi. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Jared Fogle, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. -- WV 01:26, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

Your sandbox article[edit]

Hi, I saw you posting looking for help about the article in your sandbox. I discovered the reason why the page appeared to be blank, so I have fixed it for you. Regards, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 02:02, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
