May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm 331dot. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Hainault tube station without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! 331dot (talk) 23:44, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Newbury Park tube station, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. 331dot (talk) 23:49, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates, or other materials from Wikipedia, as you did at Barkingside tube station, you may be blocked from editing. If you have a reason for removing the tables and putting a line of text, please state it here or in the edit summary. 331dot (talk) 23:52, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Tlesher. I noticed that you made an edit concerning content related to a living person on List of people from Tower Hamlets, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source, so I removed it. Wikipedia has a strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. tlesher (talk) 13:15, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Inappropriate capitals[edit]

We don't scatter capital letters at random around an article. Please read the Manual of Style, and in particular WP:MOSCAPS. --David Biddulph (talk) 16:07, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Generalisations[edit]

Please keep articles specific. Atopical generalisations stating that roads can be used by buses, cars, cycles, skaters and/or horseriders are not appropriate to encyclopedic articles. 19:07, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Walkers[edit]

Hi. I think it's fine to add connections to long-distance paths but I don't see why we need to say they are "for walkers" when you have already given it a "walkers" subheader AND said that it is a "long-distance footpath". The next bit feels like overkill. I hope you can agree and stop adding this. Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 21:58, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

No, we should not pad out our articles on London stations with mentions of every long-distance path that might pass near them. Wikipedia is not a travel guide, but even if it was, the reader wishing to use a long-distance path would not seek through each station article to find one that connected to the path. These rapid additions of the same pieces of trivia to multiple articles, like the breaking of sections into one-line sunsections, are just giving fellow editors the trouble of studying Hopeful2014's contribution history to discover how many articles need cleaning. NebY (talk) 13:43, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Please talk[edit]

Wikipedia's a collaborative project. We build on foundations laid by other editors, we correct each other and we learn from each other. We don't do that, we can't do that, just by editing articles. We have to talk together on article talk pages and on user talk pages, like this one. We also leave edit summaries explaining our edits. @Hopeful2014:,you need to start doing these things. You could be a great contributor to the encyclopedia if you'd talk with other editors about what you're doing, about what needs doing and about what shouldn't be done. If you don't and other editors have to run after you cleaning up, then eventually you'll be seen as a problem, called "disruptive" and even prevented from editing. If you do discuss, you'll be welcomed, you'll be helped, and you'll have the pleasure of seeing other editors building on the foundations you've laid. So please, talk.

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at the welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. Thank you. By re-making the same edits (to e.g. Royal Victoria DLR station and North Greenwich tube station) that others have previously reverted, you are clearly ignoring the advice previously offered on this page. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:48, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Guidance on links[edit]

We don't wikilink words and terms in section headers. Indeed, we take care to avoid confronting the reader with a sea of blue links. Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Linking is worth reading, most particularly WP:LINKSTYLE and WP:OVERLINK. NebY (talk) 17:08, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
