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)

Nights with You[edit]

Just because someone undoes your edit, does not mean that they have actually removed the content you added. It was a way of sending a notification to you that you added a bunch of unnecessary spaces in, and that songs need more specific tags than "stub". If you were editing off a phone, then perhaps you could not see that I did not remove your tags. Besides, the article is not notable and fails WP:NSONGS at the moment, so it's been redirected until it charts or has more coverage added. Ss112 19:05, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

Moving pages to create redirects[edit]

You were previously told, even by an administrator as far as I'm aware, not to move pages to disparate namespaces to create redirects, as this leaves the R from move tag on the page, and also leaves the fact that the page was moved elsewhere in its history. Please stop doing this. Just create the new pages as redirects. It is very easy to do. It is not correct to move pages to different song and album titles to create redirects and has no benefits. You have done it far too often and sometimes it seems you go on a spree of doing this, and do a round robin move to 20 different namespaces and leave a bot to clean up your mess of double redirects. If you continue to do this, I will notify an administrator (seemingly again), because it seems no other option will get you to stop doing it. Ss112 16:31, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

I second this. Moving pages several times solely to create redirects is disruptive. Don't do this. -- Tavix (talk) 14:11, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2017 April 12#Schnabl (surname)[edit]

Regarding your close of Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2017 April 12#Schnabl (surname): Closing a discussion is an assessment of consensus. No one used WP:CHEAP to advocate keeping that redirect. Therefore, saying that it's kept "per WP:CHEAP" isn't accurate. When you close a redirect discussion, you must remove the RfD tags on the redirects. Could you go back and do that? Thanks, -- Tavix (talk) 03:20, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Reply - @Tavix:, I just fixed the issue. Please let me know if this is acceptable. --Jax 0677 (talk) 14:08, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your close of Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2017 April 18#Boom Boom Boom (disambiguation) your closing summary (" Retarget . [Retarget to Boom Boom as the easiest resolution.]" implies that there were multiple options presented with little to choose between them and so you used a bit of discretion to pick one of those options (although simply being the "easiest" is not always going to be the best). However this was not the case - that was the first and only option actually presented and was unanimously supported. Further, when you removed the RfD tag from the redirect you also removed the categorisation template [1] which should only be done if they are incorrect (in which case they should usually be replaced with something that is) but {{R with history}} is clearly not going to cease to be relevant. I've fixed it for you but please take more care. Thryduulf (talk) 00:35, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Reply - @Thryduulf:, thank you very much for your feedback. I am learning about how to close XFD, but I will try to be more careful in the future. Someone told me that if I want my discussions closed sooner, that I should close other discussions by myself, if it is easy enough for me to do so. --Jax 0677 (talk) 00:42, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

List of killings by law enforcement officers[edit]

Please user proper format when adding entries on List of killings by law enforcement officers in the United States, and don't add the name of Jordan Edwards as i have already added it on list of May. Redhat101 Talk 02:28, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Reply - @Redhat101:, if you read the articles carefully, you will see that the death happened on Saturday, April 29, 2017. For this reason, I marked the date with {{nicg}} & {{when}}. --Jax 0677 (talk) 02:56, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
@Jax 0677: Ok, I fixed it.Redhat101 Talk 03:23, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

@Jax 0677: Hi, Again don't throw entries like darts, use proper format like this. Redhat101 Talk 00:20, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Your close. Yung_Simmie[edit]

Hi. I think your close of Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Yung_Simmie is overly bland. A lot more is evident in that discussion than is summarised by the words "no consensus". Could you please expand the close to reflect the gist of all the comments? --SmokeyJoe (talk) 04:18, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Reply - @SmokeyJoe:, I have adding more wording to the close. Please let me know if this works. --Jax 0677 (talk) 13:37, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Well, just my two pence after SmokeyJoe's correct advise. Given that the Afd was relisted multiple times (in other words, the Afd was already in the 'no consensus' range as no clear view was evident), and given that in the final week, there were two 'keep' !votes, the Afd should have been closed as a 'Keep' and not a 'no consensus'. The Afd would have been closed as a no consensus in case nobody had commented in the final week. You may consider changing your close here (you may ignore this advise too; I have no issues with that). Thanks. Lourdes 02:43, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

Hi. For future use, when making an album page with an American artist, please use MDY formatting. If it's a British artist, use DMY. I already fixed it on Love Hope Faith. --Jennica / talk 21:17, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Eve to Adam[edit]

Hi, I tried to move the page to the correct title, per caps, but it said that the page could not be moved because there was a page with the title already. (which was the redirect you made earlier) Hence why I did the copy paste method. I would've moved the page if it weren't for this reason. Daerl (talk)

Disruptive page moves[edit]

You have been warned about your disruptive page moves in the past, but you continue to abuse the page move tool to create redirects. For example, you just moved Korina Evaniuk to Evaniuk, which messes up the history of both pages, adds {{R from page move}} to the redirect (not accurate), and spams the move log. You know how to create redirects the correct way, please do so do in the future. I don't want to have to take further action. -- Tavix (talk) 20:46, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Singles stats on Linkin Park album pages[edit]

We don't need "consistency" in this manner. EthanRossie2000 previously removed the peaks, then you were reverted by me again in April. By restoring them yet again, you're being disruptive. If you really feel they should be included, Jax, you can open a discussion on the talk page. Surely you have noticed album pages moving away from including singles chart peaks on them. They have articles for that. Linkin Park also has a discography. Why album pages need to repeat the chart peaks of the singles when they have articles and a discography for that, you have not explained. Per WP:BRD, discuss on the talk page and stop restoring them when multiple editors have disagreed about its inclusion on One More Light. Thank you. Ss112 17:06, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
