HI Jim - Paul Oakenfold
Hi Jim -
I work for Paul and Perfecto Records, I need to have those revisions made, as requested by Paul himself. It's his updated biography.
- Hi Carl. As it is becoming clear that we cannot assist you further in this matter, I would suggest looking at this section of Wikipedia's Biographies of Living Persons policy in order to get in touch with an administrator, OTRS, or the Wikimedia Foundation. They should be able to answer your queries. SMC (talk) 12:32, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
india and weapons of mass destruction
Thanks Jim1138 Please Save Mujeeb Zafar Anwar Hameedi , great teacher of all nations
Hi Jim, I did not realize I made a personal attack. I'm new to Wikipedia and I mean no harm. I simply did not know how to handle another user waging an edit war on my edits. I repeatedly requested for specifics for the edit reversals from that user and got none, which frustrated me and I made a comment which summed up what I believed was the her personal motive behind the edit warring. I realize now that is unacceptable. Is it normal to administer a 'final' warning to a new user that has made an ad hominem attack with no previous warnings for such a thing? Please be kind, I mean no harm and I'm new to this.
Jim, recvd your msgs this a.m. I want to focus entirely upon the wiki page "social promotion" and the entry www.writingachievement.com/Retention.htm
You have apparently labeled the page as "spam" and I need more info from you as to how that occurs to you.
I think we need to have a discussion, focus on that page and its contents, and that this discussion should precede summary judgments made by anyone about the contents of the page.
I realize it will be better for us to have a discussion rather than to do the undo/undo back and forth. I am just now learning how to use this talk thing and will try to sign off now. Betsaari (talk) 15:39, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
If the pages you are concerned about appeared as stand alone pdf's w no links to the website would that suffice? The content really needs to be out there, even as a stand alone. Betsaari (talk) 17:37, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
- Note: I've already responded on my user page, as has C.Fred on their talk page. This discussion should be centralized on the article talk page at talk:Social promotion. As it is, it appears the user isn't happy with one response, so it "asking the other parent" to forum shop for someone who may give a response they prefer. --- Barek (talk • contribs) - 17:41, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for reverting the vandalism to my user page yesterday. It is a shame that someone who knows how to change a user box would not make a positive contribution to Wikipedia. Donner60 (talk) 03:51, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Thomas Meyerhoffer Edit
- If you click "What links here" on the Thomas Meyerhoffer page, there are three user pages (including this one) listed. No articles link to Thomas Meyerhoffer, which makes it an orphan. I don't think links through user pages count. Did you add an external link to Thomas Meyerhoffer from another article instead of a wikilink? Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 02:57, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
I am sorry. I was mistaken. I thought an orphan page meant that the article itself did not link to any other article and not the other way around. I apologize for the inconvience. --That1user (talk) 03:54, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Hello Jim1138, thank you for your message on Aleksandrovac wikipedia page, www.aleksandrovac.co.rs is not in function, www.toa.rs could replace official site. Bye — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:30, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Pearl High School shooting
View all versions prior to 8 DEC 2012. They all cite the assistant principal stopping the shooter with a .45 caliber pistol. 18 DEC 2012 (today) the story has been changed repeatedly to delete this fact. Many times with blatant vandalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JAK29349 (talk • contribs) 10:21, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Jim, the reliable source is the 30 something versions of the original story prior to today, I merely undid changes that delete part of the original story. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JAK29349 (talk • contribs) 10:25, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm the unregistered cat who ended up involved in the Pearl High School Shooting edits tonight. Many people are going to be searching for information on the Pearl Highschool Shooting due to the recent tragic events in Connecticut and the political issues they're bringing up. I'm not a wiki-user regularly and I probably did much more harm than good before you came along, but now I feel like something got accomplished at least 'til someone starts linking random .txt manifestos again. Seriously though big thanks to you, salt of the internet you are. ~Rob — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 11:14, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
The Hunger Games
Your recent undo of my edit
Yes you bring up some valid points and i learned something about Wikipedia editing. But you also said "Your other sources on that page: social media (youtube) is not considered a reliable source and should be avoided. I did not view the video, was I supposed to see the similarities myself? Requiring the reader to make such a decision would likely be considered original research." and that is incorrect. The video is a review from established expert in the relevant field. See reliable source. Please do not be so hasty in your undos. If you see mistakes please correct them, not delete the whole thing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:30, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
and if you think the third reference i used, metacritic, is unacceptable. I suggest you go through every video game articles on Wikipedia since almost all of them uses it as a source. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_2#Reception http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_of_Duty_2#Reception for exmaples 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:36, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Little talks edit
Hey there Jim, I tried to edit the certification for the song (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Talks) in Sweden but I don't know how to edit the citations. The information is taken from the site http://www.hitlistan.se/ in the section Vekans singellista and in position 41 you can see that the single is platinum but the url doesn't seem to change when you navigate the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:26, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
- I sort of fixed it by linking to the main page of hitlistan.se and informing the reader "Artikelinformation: Of Monsters and Men - Little talks (must search for and navigate to specific album information)" What a pain! Took me awhile to discover the change from 10,000 to 20,000 was automatic. Please let me know you received this message? Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 06:00, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Freelancer.com Criticisms edit
Hi Jim, I deleted that section because it points to links which are speculative/dubious, from anonymous sources - clearly a violation of Wikipedia terms which prohibit "engaging in False Statements, Impersonation, or Fraud Intentionally or knowingly posting content that constitutes libel or defamation; With the intent to deceive, posting content that is false or inaccurate; Attempting to impersonate another user or individual, misrepresenting your affiliation with any individual or entity, or using the username of another user with the intent to deceive; and Engaging in fraud." Carlosyrastorza (talk) 05:30, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
I made those changes because I followed the links to the Citations, and found nothing in the sources that indicated her ancestry with complete accuracy.
One citation pointed to a death record which indicated the residence of a relative (Italy) and the other was an article in which she mentioned "She grew up in a large Italian home". I chose to lift that sentence verbatim and replace the less-than-accurate original with that.
I hope that isn't too much of a problem! I would revert the changes you made, but I think that would be disrespectful of me. If you are satisfied with my explanation, just let me know and I'll revert them immediately.
Hello, as you warned Ddorai1 But you made the level of the warning higher higher, When you warned the user (s)he didn't make further contribution, please take care when you warn user according to user's contribution, when you reply me do it on your talk page and leave me a talk back, Thank's Greatuser (talk) 08:36, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
- Yes, I agree that I / Huggle should not have added those warning messages. I removed them and apologized to Ddorai1, also asking to be careful to check sources. Thanks for letting me know. I wonder how often this happens? Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 08:49, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your work within the Wikipedia community. The reason I removed that portion relating to the completion of the project is that it is not completely factual, and links to a article which is basically a blog and represents an opinion piece. Dubai Chronicle is a website operated by a single person who writes articles based on whatever sensational aspects of the story divert readers to the site, as in this case. If the person who edited it wants to link to a proper news article from a reputable and public news entity, and wants to properly reference it as such, then I believe it would be much more justifiable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:40, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
- Does not seem linke a blog. Article mentions other sources which seem to back it up. Jim1138 (talk) 19:41, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Questions are standing front of this article
could i get the clarification?
I have questions in the article ofTirumala Venkateswara Temple .My first question is In the part of "Etymology" Tiru means 'Holy' or 'Sacred' and mala means hills/mountain in Dravidian Languages. Therefore it translates as Holy mountains.May i know which Dravidian Language that is? Second question is the article mention the poet Annamatchariya.He is the poet of Telugu Language.Then May i know other Dravidian language poets where they missed for this temple article ?!why they are not mention . Why the Questions are raising Because in this article mention that Dravidian architecture,Dravidian Languages used.But May i know the Reason why the given important for only Telugu Language in this Article. Then what about other Languages part and role of this Temple ?Enough reliable proof available for reference.even though keep on destroying the records from the article.could you take any action for this?and May i know about your part with Wikipedia? I hope wikipedia people are working with true not for advertising ?Is it so?so i believe that will wiki people support in this for me.Lets see! Eshwar.om (talk) 12:18, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

the background run
Thank you for making a report on Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. Reporting and removing vandalism is vital to the functioning of Wikipedia and all users are encouraged to revert, warn, and report vandalism. However, it appears that the editor you reported may not have engaged in vandalism, or the user was not sufficiently or appropriately warned. Please note there is a difference between vandalism and unhelpful or misguided edits made in good faith. If the user continues to vandalise after a recent final warning, please re-report it. Thank you. Specifically, the single edit the user made was not vandalism but rather the addition of an inappropriate external link to a website the user likely owned, operated or worked for and there was no warning to the user about it. How can we expect users to mend their ways if we never even tell them that their ways are wrong? :) Snowolf How can I help? 11:31, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
hi there; you recently posted a notification about this user at AIV. you are clearly correct in reverting the spam link which he added, but referral as a vandal is possibly an over-reaction? His spamming is certainly not acceptable but is not, I think, meant to deliberately harm the encyclopedia. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 11:47, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
- I do try to double check when Huggle adds a notification and remove if inappropriate such as with this removal. The Huggle notifications are not easily seen and I often miss them. Huggle needs a lot of fixes. The only alternative, I think is to not use Huggle. As the article was deleted, I am not able to see what happened. RymJym was blocked. Should s/he be unblocked? Not sure why Lancasterestates was blocked either. Thanks for the note. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 19:09, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

This is a serious question
A beer for you!
you wrote to me that its bad practice to delete comments. I deleted my own comment, that I wrote to the editor who helped me to create this page. I deleted it because of safety concerns, since I wrote about what some would consider a terrorist organization. How did you know that I deleted it? are you an editor? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zahav511 (talk • contribs) 01:56, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
this is a reply to your last comment. I didn't realize that when I have a discussion it stays there permanently. I don't appreciate your attitude. If you want to close my account go ahead. I invested many hours to write and improve pages about topics that I know well. Instead of thanking me to my contribution you are threatening me? That organization also sees these comments. why would I want to advertise that I wrote that page? Michal 02:30, 2 January 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zahav511 (talk • contribs)

Actually Jim1138 I am a chartered accountant (the highest qualification in Pakistan) but language research is my hobby from childhood, Additionally I can speak a lot of Pakistani languages(also few foreign) because I have spent time in almost all parts of Pakistan due to my father postings. In year 2000 i visited Library of one of the most reputed Quid e Azam university in Pakistani Captial Islamabad, where i found District profile booklets as per National Census 1998 for each district of Pakistan issued by Statistic Division of Pakistan. I noted language data of each district. With GOOD FAITH i updated on Wikipedia district figures for all noted districts in year 2012. Additionally to stop ethnic hatred, where ever (Saraiki Vs Punjabi) conflict could to be avoided, I gave a common percentage under the head PUNJAB LOCAL PEOPLE DIFFERENT DIALECTS, who live together with love and friendship. Unfortunately I could not find a link on internet where these District profile booklets as per National Census 1998 are uploaded. Neither Pakistan Statistic division has uploaded them on there web site, the Statistic division has only given a very brief detail on each district on line with out any language information. The only option we have is that we need to contact Pakistan Statistic division and request for uploading in PDF format each District profile booklet. Saraikistan (talk) 02:44, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
