How you can help

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We appreciate your contributions, but for legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must include on the external site the statement "I, (name), am the author of this article, (article name), and I release its content under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 and later."

You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here. You can also leave a message on my talk page.--PMDrive1061 (talk) 03:28, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Tagging again[edit]

We really don't appreciate your over-zealous tagging, the latest one in Old Dominion (band). If you know any different numbers from what's indicated in the page, then change it, otherwise please stop doing this. I did not see anything that needs updating. Hzh (talk) 01:02, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

If it is the new single you are referring to, it is only a day, so you are misusing the tag. Wikipedia is not a news service that needs up to the minute update. Hzh (talk) 01:08, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

So you know it is the single. And what is the problem with you adding it yourself? You do know that WP:OUTDATED is about deleting article and absolutely has nothing to do with this? We actually prefer to have official confirmation (e.g. an add date), so it might not even be regarded as a missing information, therefore may not be outdated at all.

If you cannot edit properly, then I would suggest that you don't. Hzh (talk) 03:57, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
I have to say now that you constantly adding tags is becoming disruptive. Hzh (talk) 10:45, 10 March 2017 (UTC)

Your recent edits on Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:Parenthetical referencing. It is not true that Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science relied only on a single source. There were three inline citations, in two different but equally-valid formats (one footnote, two in parenthetical format). In addition there was a fourth source listed in the references section but not cited inline For such a short article, that does not seem like a too-low level of citation. —David Eppstein (talk) 20:33, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Again, see Wikipedia:Parenthetical referencing and read it this time. Parenthetical citations are valid as inline citations. —David Eppstein (talk) 03:49, 14 March 2017 (UTC)


Please don't place histmerge templates on articles I created where you obviously just want to take credit for creating a wrong namespace and overwrite what I did. If you think I copypasted anything from what that IP address created at your erroneous name space, I think that's a bit rich considering it was a stub, it was unsourced, the information was simple and what was there in the infobox could be typed out again in a mere minute or two with additional and complete information, which I did. Don't try and take credit for something you didn't do. What I wrote has no basis in the history at your redirect. Ss112 16:49, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

The only similarities I see are "[title] is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Brett Eldredge." Which I got as the lead sentence from looking at Wanna Be That Song. Ss112 16:59, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
The admin Anthony Appleyard has rejected your histmerge proposal, saying there is "no evidence of a cut-and-paste event" and cited WP:Parallel histories: "If the two pages have separate origins and simultaneous separate parallel histories before they were text-merged, they should not be history-merged, as that would shuffle the parallel editing histories together in one list and make a mess."
