Hipster edit War[edit]

Your recent editing history at Hipster (contemporary subculture) shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you 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. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. -- Irn (talk) 23:26, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

I've never heard of this "three edit rule" before. I only made one reversion on that page in January because another user vandalised the page by removing the gallery. I simply restored it to its original state and gave a short explanation: there were too many photos cluttering the page — Preceding unsigned comment added by Osama57 (talkcontribs) 23:46, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

No worries. I figured you hadn't heard of the three revert rule, which is why I posted the message on your page - to let you know about it. Also, don't forget to sign any comments you make on talk pages (user talk, article talk, whatever) by including four tildes like so: ~~~~ Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 00:13, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Uploading photos[edit]

Hi Irn, I'm a Wiki newbie and have a question -- hope this is the right place. I have a few photos to upload to accompany pages I am editing. They are a mixture of screencaps from music videos I directed and press shots of me. I have the copyrights to all the materials. How do I go about uploading them in a legal and issue-free way? Thanks! NogaP (talk) 19:05, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey there. When I want to upload photos, I use the File Upload Wizard, which I find to be very easy. For your purposes, you'd want to mark the work as free, and then select that it is your own work and proceed from there. I hope this helps!
(If you're not already familiar with it, you should probably also check out the guidelines on conflicts of interest because it sounds like that might apply to your editing.) Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 13:31, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Hey Irn, thanks for the quick response! Another related question -- if I want to post pictures of known/famous person (properly cited from an article online) to add to their pages, what is the proper copyright choice for that? Thanks again! NogaP (talk) 00:23, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
That's a little tricky. Since the photos aren't yours, you need to prove fair use, which can be complicated. Beyond that, according to the non-free content guideline, the photos also need to be "used for a purpose that cannot be fulfilled by free material". As far as I understand it, since all living persons can have their photos taken, and, as such, their photos could be provided freely, it'll be pretty hard for you to justify the use of non-free images. More generally, Wikipedia:Media copyright questions is an excellent place to go for photo-specific questions. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 01:28, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

RE: "Associated acts" guidelines[edit]

The "guideline" which I've indicated can be found in Template:Infobox_musical_artist#associated_acts. Thank you. Myxomatosis57 (talk) 20:36, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Edit request: Real full name of Arundhati Roy in her article[edit]

This edit request has been pending on the article's talk page for almost an eternity now (in the meantime you seem to have answered many others, but for some reason you never even reply to this one). The real full name of Arundhati Roy is Suzanna Arundhati Roy. Even her Encyclopedia Britannica article uses this correct full name, but not so Wikipedia (which one thought was supposed to be more agile than good old Britannica, LOL). Even a trivial cursory google search will bear out that the subject is well known as Suzanna Arundhati Roy, which is her real full name. Hence, I have two requests: (1) change the name of the article from "Arundhati Roy" to "Suzanna Arundhati Roy", and (2) make the relevant edits (Arundhati Roy -> Suzanna Arundhati Roy) to the page.

south bronx birthplace of hip hop[edit] because it says that that the sedgewick address is the birthplace of hip hop and its truly not. hip hop did not start from one house party, it started from the block party culture - when dj's didn't even use the turntables. please read the rolling stone article or atleast include the fact of the article to the true roots of hip hop thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hiphopwikileaks (talkcontribs) 02:59, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Ft. Lean Edit[edit]

Why does my edit have to be constructive? The statement was factual (source, I was that Confidence man) I could provide many details about that night and exchange. This was in reguard to Fort Lean Frontman Keenan Mitchell. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:23, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]


Keep up the good editing work!

small edit to hip hop page[edit]

Dear Irn, I just felt the main paragraph on the entry about hip hop culture involved a number of contested historical readings of the whole phenomenon. Claudioiglesias (talk) 00:49, 6 April 2014 (UTC)Claudioiglesias

No worries. I see that you've made that same change but using the edit summary this time, which is great. When people remove portions of text for no apparent reason (especially new and/or anonymous editors), it often looks like vandalism. Using the edit summary shows that you're making a good faith attempt at improving the encyclopedia, and it gives other editors the opportunity to see your reasoning. -- Irn (talk) 19:46, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

User:Inittowin edits on Karen Stintz mayoral campaign, 2014[edit]

Maybe we should do a complete revert of the edits the user made. At least some of the edits clearly looks like a conflict of interest. Kingjeff (talk) 02:46, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

It definitely looks like the user has a COI, but I'm personally not too worried about the rest of the edits. The ones you already reverted seemed to be pushing a POV, but the others didn't strike me as inappropriate. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 15:08, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Karen Stintz page.[edit]


I am not working with Karen Stintz although I do support the policies she's launched. I came across this page when I was trying to find more information about her.

I have a few issues with the page because there are a few incorrect details:

1. The source you have for the statement "She was a key ally of Ford and stated that she would never run against him for mayor" is a statement from Doug Ford and not Karen. If Karen said it, it would be fair to use. Karen did not say that.

2. The second debate was at Ryerson University in which Karen attended.

3. In the 3rd debate at U of T, Sokancki's team was told that he was invited and then he was uninvited when the official list of participants was posted. According to the article sourced, the other participants pulled out because they were misled by the organizers.

4. As for the ice storm, Stintz did state that her lights came back on at the same time as others. Making an accusation like that is not fair when the facts are not known.

Those are my issues with the page.

I will continue correcting the page because I find that the concerns listed above important details that need to be addressed.

Responded to on the user_talk: page, and moved to article_talk: page. -- Irn (talk) 15:47, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
