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

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]

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. 180.149.53.194 (talk) 20:51, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

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]

Hi,

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)

vandalism?[edit]

Hello,

You sent me a message saying that my correction was a vandalism. However, it was not. The definition of vandalism according to Wikipedia itself is : "any addition, removal, or change of content, in a deliberate attempt to damage Wikipedia. Examples of typical vandalism are adding irrelevant obscenities and crude humor to a page, illegitimately blanking pages, and inserting obvious nonsense into a page. Abusive creation or usage of user accounts and IP addresses may also constitute vandalism." My change doesn't fit with this definition at all. I saw today in a shortcut in the Manual of Style of Wikipedia that : "Any person whose gender might be questioned should be referred to by the pronouns, possessive adjectives, and gendered nouns (for example "man/woman", "waiter/waitress", "chairman/chairwoman") that reflect that person's latest expressed gender self-identification." Link : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Identity However, this is not an absolute rule, as most of rules on this manual. We can even edit them ourselves. You can also see this link, when they say that if a rule prevents we from improving or maintaining Wikipedia, we must ignore it : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Ignore_all_rules To refer a trans person as "she" when this person is biologically "he" is not neutral, because it implies the acceptation of the hypothesis that the gender can be different from the biological sex. And that is only a hypothesis, by the way highly contested. To be neutral, it is therefore better to refer to the biological sex of the person, regardless what the gender is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.57.197.163 (talk) 19:30, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your message! I apologize for labeling your good faith efforts vandalism. That said, blatant transphobia that goes against policy is never welcome on Wikipedia, and I do see it as vandalism. If you think that Wikipedia needs to change how we deal with trans people, you're more than welcome to take that up over at WP:MOSIDENTITY, but those sorts of changes to the biographies of living people without the consensus behind you will continue to be seen as vandalism and, consequently, reverted. -- Irn (talk) 00:41, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf edits reverted[edit]

I was just wondering was the reason for reverting the updates I made to the Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf page was for? Was it because the content was taken verbatim from the source? If so, would it be more appropriate to rephrase in my own words while mentioning the original source?

Let me know. Thanks.

AlBaraa (talk) 01:00, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the question! In my edit summary, I cited WP:PEACOCK. In my opinion, the wording strayed from a neutral point of view and was too laudatory. I actually hadn't realized that the information was taken verbatim from the source; that is also problem. The information itself seemed okay, so if you want to try to just re-word it in a more neutral tone (or maybe even put some of it in quotations where appropriate), I think it should be okay. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 04:05, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Lili Elbe[edit]

The changes I made on the Lili Elbe page were not intended as vandalism. I merely wanted to correct a number of historical inaccuracies: The name she was given at birth is Einar Magnus Andreas Wegener. The name she chose for herself in November 1930 is Lili Ilse Elvenes, despite the fact that she is know as Lili Elbe today. She died on September 12th, 1931. She had four, not five surgeries. Warnekros never attempted a uterus implant. That is a myth. Her last surgery was a vaginoplasty. Also the marriage to Gerda Wegener was resolved in court and not by the Danish king. I would kindly ask you to withdraw your veto on my changes and allow for her to be represented in a historically accurate way. Thank you. 78.52.10.31 (talk) 13:43, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

I moved your comment to the article's talk page and answered there. Cheers! -- Irn (talk) 01:39, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Sofia Carson Early life[edit]

I feel uncomfortable writing info sourced in a language I am not fluent in as auto translate misses a lot but the reference you provided seems to have a good amount of info to populate an "Early life" section in the article.

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.

Yeah, I just Googled it quickly, and that's what I found. It is strange to link to a porn site as a reference. For what it's worth, you might want to be a bit more careful about how you insert things going forward - the way you did it there, it made it look like the source at the end of that sentence supported your claim, which the other editor didn't think was the case. If you'd put it as its own sentence, it might have gotten a "citation needed" tag, but probably wouldn't have been removed outright. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 13:30, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Stop undoing my edits you really think the creator of one of the biggest shoes ever to grace TV . Paul Daniels and slylia Anderson who starred in well known shows fail a fame test.

Silent mocker (talk) 12:59, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Hey there! I'm really sorry that my edits bother you so much and that you feel so frustrated by Wikipedia. As you note, those are the rules. If you want to edit Wikipedia, you have to abide by the community's consensus. If you think that consensus is wrong, there are measures you can take to address that. However, getting into edit wars over your preferred version of an article isn't going to do anything other than frustrate everyone involved and could easily get you blocked and potentially even banned. -- Irn (talk) 13:20, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Wikitree[edit]

Whoa! Who put that in there? Why is it part of my email? I am not Silent Mocker and I do not wish to be confused with that editor above. KinCityKitty (talk) 02:49, 5 April 2016 (UTC) Hi Irn, I am so sorry I created problems this morning with the WikiTree link. I was so excited when I read this Genealogist2Genealogist message on WikiTree, I thought it was ok to add: http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/236796/template-to-link-back-to-wikitree-from-wikipedia?show=236944#c236944

I am not sure why you want this wonderful addition deleted from the Wikipedia articles or what WP:ELNO actually means. I looked through the list of Links Normally to be Avoided and I think WikiTree is not a conflict to any of the items, 1 through 19.

1 Any site that does not provide a unique resource beyond what the article would contain if it became a featured article. The unique resource is the individual's twig on the worldwide WikiTree.

2 Any site that misleads the reader by use of factually inaccurate material or unverifiable research, except to a limited extent in articles about the viewpoints that the site is presenting. No, not WikiTree.

3 Sites containing malware, malicious scripts, trojan exploits, or content that is illegal to access in the United States. Suspected malware sites can be reported by following the instructions at Wikipedia:Spam blacklist. No, not WikiTree.

4 Links mainly intended to promote a website, including online petitions. See Wikipedia:Spam § External link spamming. No, not WikiTree.

5 Individual web pages[6] that primarily exist to sell products or services, or to web pages with objectionable amounts of advertising. For example, the mobile phone article does not link to web pages that mostly promote or advertise cell-phone products or services. No, not WikiTree.

6 Sites that require payment or registration to view the relevant content, unless the site itself is the subject of the article, or the link is a convenience link to a citation.[5] See § Sites requiring registration. No, not WikiTree. WikiTree is FREE.

7 Sites that are inaccessible to a substantial number of users, such as sites that work only with a specific browser or in a specific country. No, not WikiTree. WikiTree is a one, worldwide family tree.

8 Direct links to documents that require external applications or plugins (such as Flash or Java) to view the content, unless the article is about such file formats. See § Rich media for more details. No, not WikiTree.

9 Any search results pages, such as links to individual website searches, search engines, search aggregators, or RSS feeds. WikiTree is not at search engine. It is a family tree.

10 Social networking sites (such as Myspace, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram), chat or discussion forums/groups (such as Yahoo! Groups), Twitter feeds, Usenet newsgroups or e-mail lists. No, not WikiTree.

11 Blogs, personal web pages and most fansites, except those written by a recognized authority. (This exception for blogs, etc., controlled by recognized authorities is meant to be very limited; as a minimum standard, recognized authorities who are individuals always meet Wikipedia's notability criteria for people.) No, not WikiTree.

12 Open wikis, except those with a substantial history of stability and a substantial number of editors. Mirrors or forks of Wikipedia should not be linked. Our tree includes 11,043,210 profiles edited by 317,151 genealogists from around the world.

13 Sites that are only indirectly related to the article's subject: the link should be directly related to the subject of the article. A general site that has information about a variety of subjects should usually not be linked from an article on a more specific subject. Similarly, a website on a specific subject should usually not be linked from an article about a general subject. If a section of a general website is devoted to the subject of the article, and meets the other criteria for linking, then that part of the site could be deep linked. The template links are directly to the individual's WikiTree profile page.

14 Lists of links to manufacturers, suppliers or customers. WikiTree has none of these.

15 Sites already linked through Wikipedia sourcing tools.[5] For example, instead of linking to a commercial book site, consider the "ISBN" linking format, which gives readers an opportunity to search a wide variety of free and non-free book sources. Map sources can be linked by using geographical coordinates. No, not WikiTree.

16 Sites that are not reliably functional and/or not likely to continue being functional. For example, links to temporary internet content, where the link is unlikely to remain operable for a useful amount of time. The WikiTree website has been operational since 2008.

17 Affiliate, tracking or referral links, i.e., links that contain information about who is to be credited for readers that follow the link. If the source itself is helpful, use a neutral link without the tracking information. No, not WikiTree.

18 External links on Wikipedia navigation templates or navigation pages such as disambiguation, redirect and category pages. No, not WikiTree.

19 Websites of organizations mentioned in an article—unless they otherwise qualify as something that should be linked or considered.[5][7] No, not WikiTree.

I hope this answers your questions and that you will accept the links to WikiTree pages. Thanks for your consideration. Kitty Cooper-1 Smith KinCityKitty (talk) 02:44, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the message! No worries about causing any problems. You were just doing what you thought was best, and I don't agree, so I undid it. It looks to me like Wikitree violates ELNO because it's an open wiki. But maybe it does have "a substantial history of stability and a substantial number of editors", making it acceptable. However, for me ELNO was just the most obvious policy the template violated, but I think it's inappropriate for other reasons, too (which I discuss more here).
And just to be clear, I've nominated the template for deletion, but I don't have any sort of additional power on Wikipedia. (Anyone can nominate a template for deletion, just like anyone can create a template.) I'd encourage you check out the deletion discussion over at Templates for discussion and give your opinion there if you want. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 12:56, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Hope Solo pictures edits[edit]

Hello Irn,

I already explained why those 2 photos should not be deleted, i am obviously new to editing. A more detailed explanation as to why/how i can fix the photos issues would be much appreciated.

1st photo: Solo 100 (AP credited photo -- non-commercial) 2nd photo: Photo done by and posted by ussoccer_wnt as stated... why remove it? credit was given. Thank you, --MelM0105 (talk) 16:46, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

In reply to the thing you posted on my page:

How is reverting ?? I clearly stated the sources from the beginning and it is super clear that i don't own any of the images. Also vandalism?? credit was given: especially for the AP photo, on their website it says for "editorial use only" , i assume that a wikipedia page is only for editing... Not one person is getting money from including that picture on that page, if anything it enhances the written paragraph.

If i am still missing out on a point, please state it clearly, you're a human being, i asked you 2 questions you failed to answer. Instead of just deleting editorial errors, help out and state way to fix them.

PS: thank you for the minor edit tip, will keep it in mind from now on... --MelM0105 (talk) 16:58, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Hey, there! Thanks for the messages! Unfortunately, giving credit is not enough for the photos. If you go to the photo pages, you'll see that you have marked the photos as your own. (Under "Licensing" it says "I, the copyright holder of this work, hereby publish it under the following license:" This is because of a box you checked when you uploaded the photo.) This is only acceptable if you yourself took the photo or created the image. This is obviously not the case. Since it's not the case, the images need to be explicitly labeled as free to reuse, in accordance with the Wikimedia Commons licensing policy. The AP copyrights their photos (for "editorial use only" is not sufficient), so this doesn't apply to the AP photo. However, I don't know under what license the USWNT publishes their images. It could be freely available, but you would have to prove that.
All of that is to say, what you need to do is find the licensing under which the USWNT published the image. If it's a free license, as recognized by Wikimedia Commons (see the previous link), change the information on the page to reflect its status, and you'll be fine.
If it's not (and for the AP photo), there is one more thing you can do: you can contact the person who owns the copyright and ask them to change the license so that it can be freely reproduced by Wikimedia Commons.
In general, for photos, I highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the Wikimedia Commons licensing policy. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 17:08, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello again! Thank you loads for the tips, it's Sunday so I'll put all my effort on getting the license of the USWNT image! As for the AP one, I fully understand. Once I get the USWNT approval, where do I go to "un-delete" it?! Much appreciated, --MelM0105 (talk) 17:22, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with the process of undeletion on Commons, but here's the relevant link: Commons:Undeletion requests. Although it might be easier to simply re-upload the image. Cheers, -- Irn (talk) 17:37, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Recent pita bread change[edit]

You've taken the wrong tack with reversing the change. My correction is correct because it's my language so I know what pita is called. Your reference is incorrect, and the Arabic version of Wikipedia does not use the phrase pita at all, since it's a Turkish word it'd be rare and a bit strange to call it pita. Leaving s correct change and putting citation needed is better than reverting it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.216.95.122 (talk) 21:30, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

The term terrorism is completely acceptable to be used in this article.[edit]

It is an antiterrorism assistance program. The units are part of the democratic security policy (an integrated counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency campaign). One of the missions of the Colombian army and Government forces is the fight against terrorism regardless of where comes the threat of terrorism. The term terrorism is completely acceptable to be used in this article.--ControlCorV (talk) 04:10, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
