Pawn Stars[edit]

Information.svg Hi. Welcome to Wikipedia, and thanks for working to improve the site with your edit to Pawn Stars, as we really appreciate your participation. However, the addition was moved to the list of experts who have so far appeared in only one episode on that article's talk page, since the list in the article is only for those who have appeared in two or more episodes, as is indicated at the top of that section. Although you indicated that Gottlieb had filmed numerous episodes, you provided no source for this assertion. Wikipedia requires that all material added to articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable (usually secondary) sources explicitly cited in the text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here.

In addition, here are a few tips to make your editing go more smoothly:

  • If you're going to add material to a list, then please try to take a look at that list to see how it's presented. You'll notice that episodes are cited in references, as mentioned above, there are no dates given in those episodes, nor notes about who is the "newest", etc.
  • Dates must be written out, and not abbreviated.
  • Please proofread your edits, in order to check for things like "http://www.hiostoryhunter.com.com", which both misspells the word "history" and placed a redundant "com" at the end of the url.

If you have any other questions about editing, or need help regarding the site's policies, just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 17:29, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Information.svg Please stop adding unsourced material to Wikipedia, as you did with this edit to Pawn Stars. Adding material to articles that is based on your personal knowledge, and not published sources, is called original research, and is not permitted. If Craig Gottlieb is due to appear in additional episodes (which I do not dispute one way or another), then they will be added after they air. Thank you. Nightscream (talk) 07:27, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the last warning you will receive for your disruptive edits. The next time you violate Wikipedia's No Original Research, Verifiability or Reliable Sources policies by adding unsourced material to articles, as you did with this edit to Pawn Stars, you will be blocked from editing. None of the bios for the other experts mention the number of episodes they have appeared in, so there is no reason for this to be mentioned for just one of them, especially since it's not sourced, and the episodes given in the citation do not number 18.

Craig Gottlieb[edit]

Information.svg Hi. Thanks for adding that material to the Craig Gottlieb article. I'm glad that you've adhered to Wikipedia's sourcing requirements, and your addition really improves the article? I thought I'd provide you with a few tips for future edits:

  • Try to avoid dated wording like "recently" or "most recently", since Wikipedia is not a periodical, and such wording can be vague, date quickly, and may go unupdated by other editors who may add material in the future on more recent events, but neglect to notice and update that wording in your passage. This is explained further at WP:DATED.
  • When citing a source more than once in an article, you don't have to write out the full citation each time. You can use the ref name tag, which prevents the need for this.
  • Try to remember to add the full publication info in your citations, in particular, the author, publisher and date. If the date is not given, you can provide the date you accessed the source ("Retrieved January 26, 2014").

For now, don't worry about this; I fixed these things for you. If you ever need help or have questions in the future, feel free to leave me a message on the bottom of my talk page. Thanks again! Nightscream (talk) 17:47, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Information.svg Hi. Please do not cite one Wikipedia article as a source in another, as you did with this edit to Craig Gottlieb, as this is circular sourcing. If the other Wikipedia article has a citation for the information in question, you can simply copy and paste that citation into the second article, but the Auction Hunters articles gives no source for this information either.
