Hello Huangdi, welcome to Wikipedia. Here are some useful links in case you haven't already found them;

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

Re: A few minutes please[edit]

since your first comment was under a different name on the talk page I thought you were two different people and you just saw the discussion and decided to add it. plus I always add the source at the same time I write the passage I am taking from it.- Moshe Constantine Hassan Al-Silverburg | Talk 12:22, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

As I just mentioned, on your page, I reverted and saved first. Then I added the new cite and, at the same time, a more fleshed out statement from the defense attorney. And I did note beforehand on the talk page that such a cite existed. In fact I noticed my "new" cite has been among the external links for a long time. Huangdi 12:33, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Madeleine Peyroux[edit]

Your edits (of which the only edit summary was: "no promoting commercial/other interests") needed considerably more explanation. It's not at all clear what commercial interests you think were being promoted in the large chunks of text that you removed. Also, youe claim that Got You on My Mind "has not seen wide release" needs a source; it's certainly widely available here, including being sold in HMV, etc. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 13:24, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

My last edit says "commercial release". The record company the musician apparently sued 1) had a contract with Peyroux not to release it and 2) was dismissed from the case. Perhaps a better word can be used. HMV - is that mainly in Britain? Anyways, I made a number of other edits unrelated to the circumstances around this third album/EP, which I hope will not be deleted again. Huangdi 13:34, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
HMV is a major international record company and retailer, based in the U.K. I've now expanded the article, and rewritten parts of what was already there.


The quote you grabbed from regarding the queen's experience governing during 1881 seems like it should be quoted, rather than slightly paraphrased. Although I also have some problems with some of the citations in that blurb - the U.S. peacekeepers did not take up hostile positions towards the palace, she did not surrender at gunpoint, and the McKinley Act was in 1890, not two months after her ascension to the throne as stated. It seems like the program being cited wasn't well researched, and was primarily a propoganda vehicle for sovereignty activists working through Vivian Ducat...see for some information regarding other false claims made in that program. We should probably find original sources to reference, rather than getting information 3rd hand.

Also, on the other edits I've reverted, I'm more than happy to work together on making the language acceptable to all sides, but let's work together on it, instead of just competing with edits. I'm sure that together we can help make all of these articles better! --JereKrischel 05:12, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Mahalo for your concern regarding POV on the liliuokalani page. I think we can successfully work together to put proper citations and bring balance to the article, but I think we'll need to do so one small concern at a time. Would you like to start raising specific concerns on the liliuokalani talk page so we can work on this? Thanks! --JereKrischel 02:29, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
Gladly. I will edit no more than one paragraph at a time. I was simply surprised and dismayed to find that most of my changes from a few months ago had been wiped out without much comment. I put a note on the talk page as well. Huangdi 02:32, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
If I could make a suggestion for both of us to follow, it would be helpful if instead of paraphrasing something, we simply make quotes with citations. So, for example, instead of making a claim directly (the overthrow was illegal), we can say "person x said the overthrow was illegal" and use a "ref" tag to cite them. Of course, we'll have disagreements as to what is a reliable source and what isn't, but I think we can work those out faster if we get to them directly. I'll try going through and making clear citations as well. --JereKrischel 02:48, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Ken Rosewall article[edit]

I have never seen before a relatively complete article about Rosewall's tennis feats and in particular concerning his pro career before the open era in 1968 so when I've seen the embryo of article written in Wikipedia last September, I've decided to entirely rewrite it. So for once there is a valuable (in my mind) article about Rosewall. Consequently I'm not eager to make some clean-up. Nevertheless if this article require cleanup to meet Wikipedia's quality standards it has to be changed. But perhaps those modifications will be done by others than me because I haven't the courage to do it. What do you precisely suggest ?

cmt on CFD[edit]

Huangdi, your comment on the PETA supporters CFD left me a little confused -- are you saying that Animal rights activists should be kept? Either way, you might want to doublecheck your comment -- there are two verbs in the last sentence that leave it a little confusing. --lquilter 01:19, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, I'm saying that the category Animal rights activist should be kept. I've amended my comment to indicate that. Huangdi 01:37, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

The Black Stallion[edit]

Thanks for being my spellchecker :) --Edokter (Talk) 12:48, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Blount Report[edit]

Huangdi, thanks for the supportive comments. I certainly agree with you that getting a critical mass of editors interesting in working on Hawaii-related articles is important -- as probably needs no further elaboration, there has been a certain POV pushed by a singularly tenacious editor, and so more minds focused on the material would no doubt help improve the accuracy and fairness therein. Unfortunately, I've got something fairly major on for the next couple of weeks, so won't be able to do a thing until mid-April, but would appreciate been (loosely) in touch as things progress. In the meantime, good luck and aloha. Arjuna 01:27, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Huangdi, I could use your and others' assistance in attempts by a certain editor to protect the existing POV tone of several Hawaii articles. I merely inserted a POV tag to reflect the current sad state of the articles, but even this minimal step to flag the material as NPOV to outside readers is challenged. It seems that there are basically two people -- including myself (on the moderate side as I am no radical) -- interested in improving the article, and as others have already noted, the other editor's political ideology seems all-too-evident in the tone of the articles. In any event, your help in monitoring -- not getting into further edit wars, which frankly I don't have time for at the moment, or at all actually -- would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers and aloha. Arjuna 09:29, 23 June 2007 (UTC)


Aloha Huangdi. Thanks for your comments, and although I realize there's quite a bit to wade through to get up to speed on the latest, your help would be much appreciated! I'm taking the overthrow article as the main front to get things back to a fair and accurate representation. Cheers, Arjuna 01:28, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Overthrow article (again)[edit]

Hi Huangdi, I noticed (and agreed with) your recent edits on the Blount and Morgan Report articles. As you may or not be aware, we have another (new?) "difficult" editor, Yosemitesam25, bent on pushing a very Grassroots Insitute-like POV on the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom article. I and certain other editors feel it may either be an old friend or a new one, but suspicious of his/her possible COI issues. See User_talk:Yosemitesam25 for details. Certainly their edits have been highly tendentious, and your help and input would be very welcome. You may wish to refer to the back and forth discussion on the article's talk page. Given where things are (YS seems unamenable to logic if you ask me) it would have more weight if further reverts to his reverts had the consensus of other editors, so again, your help would be appreciated. Cheers and mahalo, Arjuna (talk) 02:50, 29 February 2008 (UTC)


Hi Huangdi; When I made my reverse I forgot to put a "?" behind "Vandalism". Sorry. Hope you agree with my "POV" remark. --Floridianed (talk) 20:26, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Your edit to Crossing Over (film)[edit]

Information.svg Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Crossing Over (film), as minor if (and only if) they genuinely are minor edits (see Help:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting changes, or rearranging of text without modifying content should be flagged as a 'minor edit.' Thank you. Andjam (talk) 09:54, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Please see the response on your talk page. Huangdi (talk) 21:29, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

H. Dale Cook[edit]

H. Dale Cook is of marginal notability and I'm not sure he meets either the general notability guidelines, guidelines for people, or the guidelines for academics. Being appointed to the federal bench is not in and of itself notable. Other than his obituary and pro-forma articles where he is only mentioned because he happens to be the judge on a particular court case, has he gotten much press coverage? Did he oversee any particularly notable cases, publish any particularly notable opinions, or write any notable books? Was he generally considered notable among his peers? If any of these are true, please expand the article. If not, please consider having the article deleted. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs)/(e-mail) 04:27, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Bosley Crowther[edit]

FYI, I just re-examined this artilcle after a long absence. I see that a few weeks ago you attempted to fix the article's problematic content (accusing Crowther of pro-left leanings). This was reverted. I've asked the Biography noticeboard for assistance. Stetsonharry (talk) 20:28, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

June 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not use styles that are unusual or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in First Amendment to the United States Constitution. There is a Manual of Style that should be followed. Thank you. This is meant to be advice, not a criticism. SMP0328. (talk) 20:31, 4 June 2009 (UTC)


That term is a perfect description of how user+network gives usenet and how simultaneous+broadcast gives simulcast. I'm not sure why you removed that term (in some cases putting in an incorrect word, in other cases leaving no word and thus an incomplete sentence). I have undone your changes of this type. Please don't continue with this pattern of edits without a good explanation. Thanks. DMacks (talk) 23:38, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

You can easily show the origin of the word, where one is needed, without actually using 'portmanteau' to describe it. Have you ever considered how many times 'portmanteau' would be, and indeed, has been overused (and mis-used) here? Huangdi (talk) 00:01, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Potter's House[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added such as to the page Potter's House Christian Fellowship do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Forum's cannot be used as external links or sources anyway. The other link would by category come under the external links critics section anyway. There is no reason why that cannot be added, the reason I have not included it was to prevent an edit war with an anon editor that I know of that does not approve of that particular site.

Unsourced addition at Julia Moon[edit]

Hey, please do not add unsourced info to articles, especially not to WP:BLPs, as you did at the article Julia Moon. Thanks, Cirt (talk) 15:15, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Huangdi! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. if you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 3,303 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Norman D. Shumway - Find sources: "Norman D. Shumway" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · highbeam · JSTOR · free images · wikipedia library

George W. Bush early career section[edit]

I noticed you recently edited the George W. Bush article, changing the section named Early Career to Professional Career, and also adding subheadings with date ranges. The first date range you entered (1974-1978) is blank. Did you intend to come back to add something to this? Otherwise there's no reason to break up the section by date. LarryJeff (talk) 22:10, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, someone else already fixed it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LarryJeff (talkcontribs) 19:26, 16 January 2010 (UTC)


I've reverted your inexplicable rewording of the definition and origin of the term. Portmanteau is a perfectly good word that applies directly there. --Orange Mike | Talk 00:31, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

It's the use, or rather prevalence, of 'portmanteau' that I find inexplicable. There's no good reason why it can't be replaced by some other word, perhaps one that actually fits into the background of the article. Huangdi (talk) 06:01, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi[edit]

I have reverted certain changes you made to the following page: Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi

Further Information: Megrahi was expected to live for less than three months at the time of his release and the references provided support this.

--tb240904 Talk Contribs 12:19, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

OK, thanks. It's the rest of the material that seemed superfluous. Huangdi (talk) 12:22, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Please don't cite to Google News[edit]

Hi. Thanks for introducing citations to news stories into articles. But please note that you shouldn't introduce cites to Google News into articles as you did here.

Links to Google News break very quickly since only the last 30 days of stories are retained on its site. ( I only learned of this recently myself, btw, when I saw mention of the problem in Template:Cite_news#Optional_parameters. ) Would you please revisit your edits on the article(s) (and anywhere else you might have cited Google News), find direct links to the underlying news article, and substitute the direct link(s) for the links to Google News? I, or other editors, might have already addressed one or more such instances, but it's a time-consuming process, and your review and assistance would be very greatly appreciated.

For content that's available from its original online publisher, it's probably best to find that, and link to it directly, if possible, but you can link to Google News Archive (external link here) for content that's not available online in its original context. Links to to Google News Archive are much more permanent, as I infer. But if you do so, please be careful to do two things:

  1. Please be sure you're using the cite news template for your cite, as you should to cite all news stories. The cite web template should never be used to cite news stories, and a bare http ref doesn't provide fields for metadata that needs to be included.
  2. Please be sure to place the link to the google-archived story in the optional "archive url" field of the "cite news" template, not in the plain "url" template field. If no direct link to the original publisher's site for the content can be found, the plain "url" field should be left blank in this case. Do not put the archived document's link in the plain "url" field. Failing to follow these caveats will cause links to appear in the references section that give our readers a mistaken impression as to the sourcing for the citation.

Most of the preceding is "boilerplate" text, btw, so it's possible that not all of it will apply to your edit(s). Sorry if that's the case, but the use of cites to Google News is such an extensive problem on Wikipedia, and I come across it so often, that it's just too inefficient to write a completely custom message to relay the same facts over and over. Thanks again for adding cites, and best regards,  – OhioStandard (talk) 06:55, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

November 2014[edit]

Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at Blanche Lincoln. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 18:31, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

The information you claim is "unreferenced" or "poorly sourced" is actually JUST A FEW INCHES BELOW in the ELECTION RESULTS section for Blanche Lincoln. If you continue to make false charges and further harass me, I will report you to the appropriate editors, like other people have done with you. Huangdi (talk) 01:34, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Please see WP:BURDEN. It is the burden of the editor to provide reliable sources, to verify the content in question. Content was re-added without said reliable sources. Therefore removal of unverified content is justified.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 19:58, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Sources are cited in ELECTORAL HISTORY section, and also listed at the bottom of the page already. If you were paying attention, I added inline cites yesterday.
