Please do not add religion, ethnic, or descent categories or information to biography articles without first ensuring that 1) the category is supported by reliably sourced article content and 2) the individual identifies as such. Please see WP:BLPCAT and WP:EGRS for additional information. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 18:41, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Seems you've already gotten a note about edits like this. Let me repeat:
  • Use edit summaries to explain your edits.
  • Changes to categories need to reflect the content of the article and be sourced. Not just at editorial whim.
  • If you cannot or will not do this, your disruptive editing can and will likely see you ability to edit temporarily suspended to stop the disruption and give you a chance get up to speed on how things are done on Wikipedia.
- J Greb (talk) 22:22, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
This is not appropriate. Consider this a final warning - adding categories in this manner again will result in you being blocked.

Recent edits to LGBT rights by country or territory[edit]

Thanks for your additions to the LGBT rights article. However, I think they may be better suited for our article LGBT history, as a lot of the content you've added isn't really about legal status at all. What do you think? –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 23:34, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Asian American, 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. Removed content was reverted per WP:BRD. Continuing to remove content without reaching a consensus could be seen as beginning an edit war. Please discuss the content in the section which already exists on the talk page.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 21:27, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Final warning[edit]

I've warned you in the past that the addition of ethnic and descent categories to biography articles when the inclusion is not supported by reliable sources is a violation of BLP policy, yet you continue to add the inappropriate categories. If it continues you will be blocked from editing. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 23:36, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Stop icon

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to Atlantic slave trade, please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. Dougweller (talk) 10:37, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

May I suggest moving the article Portrayal of East Asians in Hollywood to Yellowface in Hollywood?[edit]

The entire article focuses on the racial injustices against East Asians in Hollywood. If you're that keen on keeping the page with only yellowface-related material than I suggest you move the page. It is important to list East Asians characters that aren't subjected to yellowface. So before we start an edit war, what do you think? I would need some help on starting a non-yellowface list. Lhw1 (talk) 08:36, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes it seems like the current page has all of its focus on yellowface and discrimination and everything else about portrayals of East Asians have pretty much fallen by the wayside. We can move what we have now to Yellowface in media or something similar. And then just have yellowface as a sub-section in the current page, which should really be an article about portrayals of East Asians in general.Lhw1 (talk) 09:14, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Feel free to take the initiative. I only really identify and tweak articles for mistakes and inconsistencies, but this is a step in the right direction I think. I'll keep an eye out. Lhw1 (talk) 09:52, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Yea, go ahead. Lhw1 (talk) 10:06, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

How about copying and pasting from one Wikipedia article to another?[edit]

Yes, you can copy parts of one Wikipedia article into another, but you must link to the source article in your edit summary. Original content contributed by users can be freely used if the original author is properly attributed. -- Moxy (talk) 05:01, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

‎Casta discrimination[edit]

Can we get you to read over WP:BALASPS before making huge section on over view article. Perhaps best the info is not copy and pasted all over? -- Moxy (talk) 05:16, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Are you reading whats above[edit]

If your not willing to follow our basic policies I will have to bring this to admins attention - up to you at this point -- Moxy (talk) 06:14, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Ok then[edit]

After reading the reply on my talk page - I am not sure what to say - I will say you need to work on your social sills here - as profanity filled rants wont get you far. So since its clear your not sure what to do - I will be blut - I dont care what your copy and pasting all over ... If your going to do it try doing in a manner outlined in the policy I listed above then it may not be reverted. Also try to be balanced in your approach to the content size. Sorry to hear your having trouble - if you need help best you try asking at the WP:Teahouse as i am not to inclined to help at this point Moxy (talk) 06:54, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

There is lots to rap your head around here. I see by edits like this made a few days ago you still need some guidance - you could look over Wikipedia:Tutorial - I really do suggest you stop by the Teahouse - the people there can help you with your Dominant minority problem and show you how to copy and paste within the Encyclopedia. -- Moxy (talk) 07:27, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

White Latin American[edit]

Your recent additions to White Latin American page are not verifiable by a WP:RS. If you disagree please don't just WP:edit war, open a discussion on the talk page and we can sort it out. Tobus2 (talk) 07:43, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Your WP:UNDUE additions to leads[edit]

Please stop adding those "hungriest nations" rankings to the leads of many articles. They are undue weight for one statistic from one relatively obscure and lesser known source, and at most they can be added to a relevant section in the body. If you continue to re-add them to the lead an administrator will be forced to deal with you accordingly, which of course includes blocks. If you have objections, concerns, or questions you can take it up with an administrator but please follow the general guidelines. Cadiomals (talk) 08:49, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

While I wouldn't rush in and be talking about "blocks" and administrators, I must say that Cadiomals does have a point about the hunger edits, at least in the lead, being undue. kind regards --Merbabu (talk) 10:30, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Magiciandude. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Latin American music, 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. Erick (talk) 19:17, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to Latin American music, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. You need to include a source in the lead that supports Asian music being part of Latin American music. Erick (talk) 08:11, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Languages of Africa[edit]

Please stop - Spanish is an official language of the African Union (AU) and of Equatorial Guinea. I'd appreciate it if you'd revert yourself. Dougweller (talk) 09:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

March 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Lion (2016 film), without citing a reliable source using an inline citation that clearly supports the material. The burden is on the person wishing to keep in the material to meet these requirements, as a necessary (but not always sufficient) condition. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Melcous (talk) 07:08, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
