Recent edits[edit]

Why are you removing citation needed tags? And I note that you are adding unsourced material. As well as commentary eg "(incorrect way to call it) in articles that belongs on the talk page. I'm off for a couple of hours but am minded to revert your edits for these reasons. Dougweller (talk) 06:10, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Maya civilization into another page. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. As I couldn't sort out where what was from I'm afraid I've reverted you. I also note that you haven't replied to my concerns above. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. Dougweller (talk) 17:39, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Your email[edit]

Thanks but no need to email me, just click on my name above or reply to me here copying this {{ping|Dougweller}} into your reply and I'll be notified by email that you've replied. I'm sorry to have to revert you, but new editors almost always make mistakes, and even with well over 100,000 edits I still do at times. One of the first mistakes I made was the reason I reverted you, which is copying material from other articles. We all still have copyright to what we write and it is normally possible to find out who wrote each bit of text, but we can't do that if you copy (as I did when I was new) material without showing where it is from. I've told you how to do that above. As for sources, see WP:RS - academic sources are the best for this article. I'm a bit dubious about Richard Hooker as he writes generalist world history books. Sources need to specifically discuss the subject of the article, it's not like writing an essay. Dougweller (talk) 18:38, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
