- Honest to god, this article was approved by consensus through Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/Mikhail Youzhny career statistics/archive2.. You may not agree with that, but that is fact. Secondly, read Wikipedia:WikiProject, then look at the guidelines. --TIAYN (talk) 15:27, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
- Just because it was approved doesn't mean it's the only way it would have been approved. It's not like you own the article forever. Editors are going to add things and delete things from that Youzhny article regularly, and you can't stop them unless it blatantly goes against policy or guidelines. If they make an edit that you disagree with and you revert it, then unless others join in, they should take it to the talk page and try to convince others why their way is better. We follow Wikiproject Tennis guidelines until consensus says otherwise. You have made a good point on the problem with the blind and colors, so we are attempting to remedy that by consensus at Tennis Project. But don't put the cart before the horse. We are working on that item and we MAY make additional changes at the same time. Fyunck(click) (talk) 22:49, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
- We don't follow WP:TENNIS guidelines, read Wikipedia:WikiProject (or also known as Wikipedia regulations); "WikiProjects are not rule-making organizations. WikiProjects have no special rights or privileges compared to other editors and may not impose their preferences on articles.")... Yes, you read correctly. --TIAYN (talk) 06:06, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
- Baloney... yes we do! Administrators have upheld it many many times. The project has no special authority but the guidelines work as any other guidelines in keeping things on the straight and narrow by using consensus to end disputes. Only policies are iron-clad. But your attitude of forcing changes against consensus and guidelines will lose in the end. It is far better to work together where some changes will take place and some will not, and if you don't get your way, one doesn't throw a tantrum and start demanding things.

I notice you keep changing the instances of "world no." to the uppercase form of "World No." throughout the lead section. It is in lowercase in the lead because the rest of the article is written that way. If you'd like to change it to uppercase, please make the same changes throughout the whole article for consistency. -- James26 (talk) 05:21, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
- Only way I know of is using your page's search function. Thanks. -- James26 (talk) 12:15, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
world not World
Per proper grammar and if I recall correctly Wiki MOS, it's "world No. 1"... not "World No. 1". The word World is only capitalized at the beginning of a sentence. Just a heads up for other articles. Fyunck(click) (talk) 08:32, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi. I'd honestly try to go for legit reviews from critics. I'd follow the basic strategies:
- Try to find prose describing the song genre first over a bullet form. It's stronger.
- Per issues with Allmusic describing Rhythm Killers as not a reggae album in the review but having the sidebar say reggae, we don't use allmusic's sidebar as a source for genres.
- Find things that actually have authors listed. Not just some iTunes list or discogs.
That's basically it. Since genre is subjective, there no 100% fact that songs belong to specific genres. We can only give interpretations of a sound from a critic. I think that pretty much covers it, just read through reviews of songs, albums. If you don't find anything, leave the genre field blank. Simple as that. Andrzejbanas (talk) 04:28, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
- I gave an answer at the help desk before seeing X201's suggestion here. That's not a bad idea. Apart from the suggestions I had at the help desk I can also offer two more possibly helpful links. First: I have seen cases where WP:PEND (a specialized form of WP:RFPP) works. Second: It's no coincidence that this IP vandal is targeting childrens television programming. That is one of the most problematic areas in the encyclopedia. It's really hard to determine whether edits like represent good faith original-research-based efforts to improve the encyclopedia by actual children or whether they represent dedicated vandalism. You might consider bringing it up at WT:SVT. -Thibbs (talk) 12:26, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

conflicts in editings
Hi Jay, nice to meet you, Silas here. I can see that you want to prevent Petra Kvitova's career highlights in Petra Kvitova career statistics from being too lengthy. I was actually extremely offended at first as I have took the trouble and inserted all of her notable achievements since the start of her career in 2006 and you persistently kept changing and removing the edits that I have contributed. In your non-lengthy version, there are spelling errors for third round in the 2009 section. Furthermore her most recent title is Madrid not Wuhan 2014. You have overlooked this statement as well. Third, her 2013 highlights are a little ambiguous. And she has won the 2012 U.S. Open series which is a worthy highlight as well. All her career titles and year end ranking should be mentioned as they are the highlights of her career. You should edit other lengthy career highlights like Azarenka's which is much longer since you don't favour career achievements that are too lengthy. Hope we can tolerate each other in this matter as I no longer insert her pre-2009 highlights that included her ITF titles and Grand Slam debut in my edits since you want it to be not too lengthy. Lastly, the more an athlete achieves, the longer the list of achievements are and they should never be left out. Thank you Jay and good day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Silaslej (talk • contribs) 14:27, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
thank you and a few minor editing
Thank you so much for understanding Jay. Really appreciate it. I will just do a little bit more of the editing, add titles etc. Will not be too lengthy don't worry, good day! Silaslej (talk) 15:06, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I have improvised by adding the titles won and year end rankings and some punctuation edits for consistency, did my best to make it short and sweet and not too lengthy. Most of your major points are still there. Hope the both of us can appreciate both of our contributions. I can see you are a tennis fan as well. Who is your favourite player? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Silaslej (talk • contribs) 15:29, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for creating Kei Nishikori career statistics, JayJ47!
Wikipedia editor Sulfurboy just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

If and since you restored "inappropriate removal of content", it would be nice if you could at least update the statistics tables when reintroducing deprecated formatting (compare: style="background:#afeeee;" / bgcolor=afeeee). Could you also check that the tournament statistics are correct? That's probably too much for me (it's huge)! Many thanks! Jared Preston (talk) 09:38, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
- What has narked you this time? That I removed the "No."? I think it's superfluous. Or was it my edit summary? "Miscellaneous" simply means "consisting of a variety of parts"; seeing as I also corrected the file caption and tweaked the paragraph mentioning her sister for better readability. I also removed 8x whitespace and corrected overuse of capital letters. But as I see, you disagree with all of that. This must be rather irksome for you, but I urge you to have a proper look next time. Have a nice weekend. Jared Preston (talk) 17:55, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Australian IP vandal
Hi, glad to see that you started Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Teenage Fairytale Dropouts vandal. I brought attention this person last year at ANI, but nothing came of it. I've added those IPs to the LTA report. Since a lot of the edits consist of plausible misinformation, they often slip through the cracks. And there's so many of them -- I just looked at one article and found misinformation that stuck around for 9 days. Fortunately none of these articles are important, but still.

Casey Dellacqua career statistics
I must admit to being a bit confused by your reversion of my edit to Casey Dellacqua career statistics and the subsequent instruction to "re-add the Tier I events as a new section in the table". I'm not sure if you're aware, but what are now the Premier Mandatory and Premier 5 events are the same, in essence, as the Tier I events, having been rebranded in 2009. As such, it seems to me that having these events listed on the same rows as their modern day equivalents is both appropriate and logical - especially given that nearly all tournaments that were Tier I have since been Premier Mandatory/5. If I was to "add a new section to the table" it would end at 2009, whilst the Premier Mandatory/5 would be blank until that same date - surely not good formatting. Is there something I'm missing here? It may be that I have misunderstood your comment.
- Could you show me an example of how you believe the table should be formatted? I don't really get it tbh... E.g. why are Dellacqua's results from the 2008 Miami and Indian Wells tournaments listed given that these were Tier I events (before Premier 5/Mandatory existed)?

There needs to be a lot more disruption than that to require protection. Especially indefinite which would require multiple edits per day and for it start up as soon as the previous protection expired. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 11:53, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
