Promotional editing[edit]

Hello James. Thankyou for looking into my article but James I think you mistook the content of it. IT's purely not for advertising or a promotion of any product or service. As i read the terms of wikipedia. i created that article since it has to be on wikipedia since its major for history of srilanka. As thr oldest and the largest production company of srilanka. That is some information that has to be here. Please look into my matter and consider. thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Roshen Ratnaraja (talkcontribs) 06:23, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

@Roshen Ratnaraja: I'm not sure what you would think would be promotional, if you think a page full of language such as "the most innovative & creative entertainment provider in Sri Lanka", "has made history and will keep striving for success", and so on and so on, wasn't. Every single non-talk page edit you have made has been chock full of blatant marketing-speak. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:52, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

1949-50 Macedonian Republic League[edit]

Hello JamesBWatson,

I'm about to create an article 1949-50 Macedonian Republic league, but I have noticed that you moved or deleted a page with the same name back in 2014 and you have left a notice reg creating a new page, I'm not sure what content you have moved or deleted, but I want to create a page same as 1954-55 Macedonian Republic League which I did it few hours ago, will that be sufficient enough? Kind Regards, F00700I (talk) 12:56, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

@F00700I: That should be fine. The deleted article was created by a highly offensive editor who was blocked because of serious threats of real-life attacks on another editor, and the deletion was to try to persuade him that evading the block by using sockpuppets would not achieve anything. There is no problem at all with you creating a new 1949-50 article similar to the 1954-55 one which you mention. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 21:22, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
@JamesBWatson: That's great, thank you. F00700I (talk) 11:33, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

reflist in the wrong place[edit]

Sorry. Thanks for the edit Buffs (talk) 15:18, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

@Buffs: It took me a couple of minutes to work out what you were talking about, but eventually I got there: the reliable sources noticeboard. Looking back at it now I am rather ashamed of my edit summary, which was much less friendly than it could have been. My apologies for that: I think I was tired at the time.
