Block-evading IP hopper[edit]

Hi, JamesB. I was just perusing Recent Changes and noticed 39.38.44.81 started making similar edits as 39.38.1.98, which has been blocked for a month. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 16:37, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Also 39.38.16.12, 39.38.30.112, 39.38.34.158, etc. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 17:34, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
Range-blocked. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:27, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Found another one: 184.185.133.191 got blocked and 184.185.133.197 took over. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 16:37, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

@Skywatcher68: Those two IP addresses are in a range that has made over 100 edits since 2012, and on the basis of a sample of edits I reckon something like 99% of those edits have been vandalism, so I have blocked the range for a fairly long time.

Block request[edit]

Morning (perhaps?), JBW. Could you review the requests at User talk:Mrwoogi010/Archive 1#HELP: Merging Accounts and User:Caninecrew#Help Please and the discussion at User talk:Mrwoogi010#September 2018 and if you agree, soft-block Caninecrew? Thanks. General Ization Talk 14:49, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

I have responded at User talk:Mrwoogi010. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 16:05, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@General Ization: The editor has now marked the Caninecrew account as inactive, and noted the connection between the accounts on both user pages. I don't see any need to block at present. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:34, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Warning on conflict of interest[edit]

Dear JamesBWatson, thanks a lot for your detailed message. We totally respect Wikipedia Terms of Use, thus my profile includes the details of my relationship with Sustainable Energy for All as a paid editor. Since the organization went through some major changes in recent years, we would like to make sure that the info on our Wiki page is accurate -and while doing that, of course, we try our best to have a neutral/evidence-based tone. Any further advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. "Gizemdumlu" (talk) 12:45, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Name policy[edit]

Hello and thank you for the information. The linked page say that new user should create a new accout, so i ask if i should do so or i should change the name? Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiworkbot2.0 (talkcontribs) 15:29, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

@Wikiworkbot2.0: You can either request a change of user name or create a new account. I think it's better to have your user name changed, because that way the history of your edits under the old name is kept along with the edits from your new account, but it's not a difference of great importance, and it's up to you. If you do create a new account then you should put a note on your user page saying that the other account is yours too, to avoid the risk of anyone thinking you have created two accounts dishonestly, with the intention of giving the misleading impression of being two different people.

Copyright Violation[edit]

Hello. I am here to request that you hide [[1]] because I recognize the content as lyrics of the opening song of Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. Also, what should I do in the future if I spot a copyright violation that should be hidden? CLCStudent (talk) 15:55, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

@CLCStudent: I can't find the lyrics anywhere to confirm the copyright infringement. Can you point me to a source that shows they are the lyrics of that song? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 15:36, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
[[2]] starting with "When a couple of guys who were up to no good". CLCStudent (talk) 22:47, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
@CLCStudent: I actually doubt that such a tiny quotation counts as a copyright infringement, but I have got rid of it anyway. Certainly it was vandalism. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:33, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Editing Correction[edit]

I am ready to correct it. Being a newbie,I am not having idea how to give copyrights practically.Please help. Do not give links.I have neutral point always. I want to know how can we do it practically. If u think I am wrong ,kindly guide me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saee Patil (talkcontribs) 11:23, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

@Saee Patil: I will be happy to try to help you if you make it clear what help you want. As far as copyright is concerned, it is simple: post only content you have written yourself, not content you have copied from anywhere else. I am not sure what you mean by saying that you "have neutral point always", but if you mean that you write from a neutral point of view then I suggest you consider the following quotes from your editing, all of which unambiguously express opinions: "the Challenger fits the bill", "excellent", "we couldn’t find much to pick fault with", "feels more modern", "we would take the Avanté over and above its Compass Casita 860 cousin". The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 11:43, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
How can I go back to the article which I need to change,Like you have mentioned, not to include words excellent n all.. I want to correct it.How do I edit it now? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saee Patil (talkcontribs) 12:40, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
Since the page in question was a copyright infringement it has been deleted, and you can't go back to it. Copyright infringing content may not be restored.
My advice to new editors is that it is best to start by making small improvements to existing articles, rather than creating new articles. That way any mistakes you make will be small ones, and you won't have the discouraging experience of repeatedly seeing hours of work deleted. Gradually, you will get to learn how Wikipedia works, and after a while you will know enough about what is acceptable to be able to write whole new articles without fear that they will be deleted. Over the years I have found that editors who start by making small changes to existing articles and work up from there have a far better chance of having a successful time here than those who jump right into creating new articles from the start.

Okay.But,That Copyright infringement I was ready to edit,in fact was about to edit as well.I have a slow Net connection. Also, Its lagging here.But, then how will I know how to edit the links or resources or external links! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saee Patil (talkcontribs) 12:59, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Correction for Deleted page Ubong King[edit]

Greetings James, Thanks for the efforts to keep Wikipedia Safe, I created the page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubong_King and although used some contents gotten from a Website but I have the Copyright permission to use it and the owner of the website is ready to provide any necessary copyright permission to use the contents from his website. I seek to request for a re-uploading of the page also if there is a need for me to edit the content in my own words I can still edit it to avoid a repeat of this. Thanks and hoping to read from you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Delords (talkcontribs) 18:57, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

I have answered at User talk:Delords, in this edit. The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 20:03, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

The owner of the Copyright has his contact details on his website and i reached out to him and letting him know about it and he agrees to give the permission and knows what it entails. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Delords (talkcontribs) 20:20, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Comment on InsideSales.com Draft[edit]

Hi James, You left a comment on my page, with no reference. you said not to "add promotional material" to Wikipedia. I don't understand where this has come from. I have not added any "promotional material" to Wikipedia. I have been trying to create a page about a company, but it's not promotional, it's informational. Can you please expand on your comment? Thanks, Ryanbreneman (talk) 23:12, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

@Ryanbreneman: Are you seriously suggesting that text such as "InsideSales also provides strategic consulting to optimize the people, processes and opportunities of customer sales organizations, and builds and deploys custom AI models that leverage data from any customer data source" is anything other than pure marketing-speak? Have you ever heard language like that other than from a marketing professional? The editor who uses the pseudonym "JamesBWatson" (talk) 13:23, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
