Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be repeatedly reverting or undoing other editors' contributions at Minecraft. Although this may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is known as "edit warring" and is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, as it often creates animosity between editors. Instead of reverting, please discuss the situation with the editor(s) involved and try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, and violating the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. —Dilidor (talk) 17:42, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @Dilidor: Giving a user an edit war warning for doing a single partial undo on you seems a little disingenuous, don't you think? You might re-read WP:BRD. -- ferret (talk) 17:56, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@Ferret: Indeed it does! Which is precisely why I returned to favor to Jd22292, since he posted this warning on my page after I did a single partial undo. A little disingenuous, don't you think? —Dilidor (talk) 17:58, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@Dilidor: Then tell him that it was, at best, pre-mature to warn you. Let's avoid "counter templating", it's not helpful. -- ferret (talk) 18:00, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Ferret: Jd22292 is coming perilously close to a CIR block, and I'll make this a final warning for them: if they incorrectly warn, revert, or report another user to AIV in the future, I will block them for disruptive editing. I would encourage them to stay far away from any of Twinkle's functions. TonyBallioni (talk) 18:03, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@TonyBallioni: Fair enough, not defending him on that (Didn't see it at the time besides). -- ferret (talk) 18:05, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Not a problem: I know you are a TPS here which is why I pinged you :). I'd agree that Dilidor probably shouldn't have returned the template, but this warning because of one revert could only end badly (yes, BRD and whatnot, but 1 revert does not edit warring make). TonyBallioni (talk) 18:11, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@Ferret:I concur that counter-warning was not the "by-the-book" course of action, but on the other hand, it did demand a response, which a simple posting on his talk page would have not accomplished. @TonyBallioni: Thank you for attending to this problem. There is clearly a pattern here that should be addressed and curtailed. —Dilidor (talk) 18:20, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@Dilidor, Ferret, and TonyBallioni: I'd actually like to thank you all for making me rethink my time on Wikipedia and whether it's right for me to stay. Judging by my own actions in this situation as well as in the past, and after a few minutes of thinking, I feel that Wikipedia is not for me. I have caused more trouble on the encyclopedia than just this incident, and I cannot forgive myself for each of them.
Also, to any other editor that watches my Talk page, thank you for sticking around during my short time here on Wikipedia, and I'm sorry that I let you all down like this. While I will request to vanish from Wikipedia, I don't have to disappear completely, for I have placed on my User page other places you can find me in case you'd still like to communicate with me. Again, I apologize for letting you all down. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk • contribs) 18:55, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
It’s your call: I leave people’s retirement up to them, and don’t pressure to leave or stay when it happens. I’m only commenting to say that my warning was solely related to maintenance tasks and warnings/anti-vandal work. I don’t know how you interact on the content side of the project, but I’m confident you’d not have to worry about a CIR block if you simply disabled Twinkle in your preferences. If that makes a difference, good, if not, I honestly wish you the best. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:14, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Agreed. You just need to step back from the maintenance and reporting work, as previously suggested. Your content work is fine. -- ferret (talk) 19:21, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

I'd just assume you not retire and continue with content work, but wanted to say, claiming retirement then editing while logged out is a little disingenuous. -- ferret (talk) 01:48, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Stewart Levenson (2nd nomination)[edit]

A much needed explanation[edit]

This goes for all my Talk page watchers and other users who are suspicious about some things regarding recent activity with my account post-retirement. Yes, I did edit while logged out, and I can't take back these actions.

Since retirement, I have posted this in regards to some background that occurred during these past few months as I was warned of misusing AIV. The most recent warning (still on this Talk page) did not directly cause the retirement, but rather caused me to think back on the continued stress I was getting while contributing normally to the encyclopedia and what caused it. The memories in turn caused me to finally leave.

While it should be a relief that no one editor caused my retirement (or to be more appropriate, caused me to leave), I am prepared to defend myself at ANI or ArbCom if there's still any suspicion. At the same time, I'm still thinking about whether a return to the encyclopedia seems appropriate considering this situation. Wikipedia felt like an addiction for me since I became active in June, and I had not found the time for moderation solutions until I left.

Again, I'm sorry if I let anyone down these past few weeks (Yes, sorry still seems to be the hardest word for me.) I'm still receiving e-mails about changes to articles I created and fulfilled requests (thanks Zawl for fulfilling my request for Connecting the Dots over at RA) and am pleased with what I'm seeing in terms of maintenance and improvement. If I do decide to return, I will follow the advice given to me weeks ago and not continue with anti-vandal work (I have already disabled Twinkle in case a return ever occurred.)

In the case I don't return, thanks to my watchers and editors I've worked with for being some form of support during my active 7 months on the encyclopedia. I hope our paths will one day cross again off the encyclopedia. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk • contribs) 00:41, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:2017-Overtons-400.jpg[edit]

However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Speedy deletion nomination of Veela (singer)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Veela (singer) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

IP vandalism[edit]

So, I have a sneaking suspicion that you just used an IP address to vandalize your own userpage. I've revdel'd the content, and if this not the case, I'm sorry for suggesting it, but it geolocates to the same area you claim to live and is the same network as other IP addresses that I'm pretty sure you used to restore content people had removed from articles that you were active on and that Ferret hinted at above.

Needless to say, if my hunch is correct, and I think it is, and you continue the self-vandalize, I'll just block this account and semi-protect both the talk page and the userpage, because we don't need people lying to us to make us feel bad about them. It wastes time of both vandal fighters and administrators who have to revdel and block the IP. If you want personal information removed from Wikipedia, I highly suggest contacting an oversighter or emailing the oversight list by following the instructions at WP:OS. TonyBallioni (talk) 18:28, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Re: User page edit[edit]

You vastly overestimate the severity of your "crimes". All anyone has suggested to you is that claiming to be retired, then continuing to edit anyways, is less than honest and potentially wasting time for vandal patrollers and admins. If you want to edit, then just edit as yourself. All the same advice as before still applies: Step away from reverting, AIV, ANI, etc. Focus on editing. -- ferret (talk) 22:26, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, agreed. My note above was only about self-vandalizing. Feel free to also do a clean start under a new name or as an IP. Just follow the advice we gave before. TonyBallioni (talk) 22:32, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Ferret and TonyBallioni: Thank you both. I will notify someone if the clean start ever happens. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk • contribs) 22:33, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Buddy, take care of yourself first and foremost. Don't let some online collection of randos get in your head and heart. Stay frosty! In the meantime you can keep tweeting at me when shitty shenanigans happen around the madhouse and you don't feel like sticking your head in this pig's pen. ;) Ben · Salvidrim!  22:52, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Question about off-wiki harassment[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Within the last 30 days, I've received 2 comments on videos on my YouTube channel that I feel are a violation of Wikipedia's policies against off-wiki harassment. I have since deleted both of these comments, but have managed to take screenshots of both of these comments separately beforehand as evidence. I've already sent this evidence to another user I feel I can trust, but is there anywhere else I can send the evidence? I can't seem to identify possible users here on Wiki that could be linked to each or both of these YouTube accounts. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk • contribs) 01:42, 13 June 2018 (UTC) if it involves any users on-wiki and in general for the foundation’s team on this. TonyBallioni (talk) 01:58, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
