Dominique Robinson[edit]

Hi! It seems you recently created an unreferenced biography of a living person: Dominique Robinson. The community has decided that all new biographies of living persons must contain a reliable source that supports at least one statement made about the person in the article as per our verifiability policy. Please add references as soon as possible. Thanks! --LaraBot (talk) 00:10, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Dominique Robinson[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Dominique Robinson has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

MMA record table format[edit]

Hello, you may want to read or join the discussion at WT:MMA#MMA record table problems regarding capitalization and flag icons. Thanks. —LOL T/C 21:25, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Flags in tables[edit]

As per your question on my talk page, the reason we don't put flags in the tables is because of the Wikipedia Manual of Style (MOS) which says here "Flags should never indicate the player's nationality in a non-sporting sense; flags should only indicate the sportsperson's national squad/team or representative nationality. Where flags are used in a table, it should clearly indicate that the flags represent representative nationality, not legal nationality, if any confusion might arise." In other words if the person represents a country at a national competition then the flag icon is used. In the case of these wrestlers, they are not wrestling for their countries but only themselves, therefore the flag icons do not belong. Thanks. SQGibbon (talk) 02:57, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

K22UFC: If you didn't ignore the discussion I linked in my message above, then you possibly wouldn't be making counter-productive edits and orders such as [1][2][3]. —LOL T/C 03:22, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

March 2011[edit]

This is your only warning; if you make personal attacks on other people again, as you did at Dominique Robinson, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. SQGibbon (talk) 03:09, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Flag icons in tables discussion[edit]

Hello, there is currently a discussion going on at the MMA project page here about whether flag icons should be used in infoboxes and tables in MMA articles. Your participation in the discussion would be very helpful. Thanks. SQGibbon (talk) 19:53, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Personal attacks[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is User:K22UFC personal attacks. Thank you. —LOL T/C 20:59, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

re:What[edit]

You said "Did you say I can change it. How do I do that?" I'm not sure what the "it" refers to. SQGibbon (talk) 18:59, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes, consensus can be changed. Please read WP:CONSENSUS and WP:VOTE for more information. SQGibbon (talk) 19:05, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
OK, just got another message from you. Basically the idea in consensus building is to engage in discussion with other editors on the relevant talk page like what is happening on WT:MMA. Following Wikipedia policies and guidelines we try to reach an agreement on the best way to handle points of dispute. If consensus cannot be reached despite the good faith efforts of the people involved then we can try to seek outside help. An important thing to note is that it's not a vote. Wikipedia is not a democracy. Consensus is reaching agreement. SQGibbon (talk) 19:10, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Why do you always remove the for instance UFC: Shogun vs Jones vs UFC 128 in the record box. It looks awful. Look at Jon Jones page. This is just one of many examples. WHat idiots made MOS. It sounds like a joke to ruin all wiki pages.

I'm not sure what example you are referring to. The Wikipedia Manual of Style was created by consensus of over 2,000 editors over nine years of discussion. You might not agree with some decisions that have been made, I know I don't, but because we're a community we have to work together in order to change the MOS or ignore its guidelines. And remember, just because you think something looks good or bad doesn't mean everyone else agrees. Or sometimes maybe people do agree but that there are other overriding reasons for doing something a certain way. SQGibbon (talk) 19:16, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Also, please don't make comments about other editors as you did here. It is considered uncivil. I'm assuming that Dachknanddarice was unaware of the relevant Manual of Style guideline about names. That happens to all of us all the time -- there are tons of guidelines concerning editing Wikipedia. People make honest mistakes. Thanks. SQGibbon (talk) 19:26, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

User talk:24.15.163.102[edit]

Please try to be more polite when interacting with other editors, calling someone an idiot as you did at User talk:24.15.163.102 is unlikely to help the situation. Monty845 19:22, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others and avoid editing disruptively.

In particular, the three-revert rule states that:

  1. Making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you continue to edit war, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Dachknanddarice (TC) 01:10, 15 April 2011 (UTC) What the hell are you talking about. You were doing the exact same thing. Do you think the rules aply to everyone besept you?

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for edit warring over flag icons. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. - 2/0 (cont.) 05:55, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

  • You were previously blocked for edit warring over flag icons, but you appear to be doing it again. Please discuss the situation at the relevant talk pages (e.g., Talk:Jake Shields) before re-adding the flags. Continuing the pattern of reverting without discussion could lead to a longer-term block of your account. —C.Fred (talk) 19:07, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Flag icons[edit]

You're aware that Wikipedia and MMA consensus is to not use flag icons in tables like you're doing. You've also been asked on many occasions to discuss the issue if you feel that there are good reasons to go against Wikipedia guidelines with respect to flag icon usage. So again, please discuss the issue with your fellow editors before making all these changes like you're doing. You do not own these articles and yet by ignoring the consensus view of Wikipedia and other MMA project editors it certainly seems like you feel like you do. Please stop this and work within the system to effect the changes you want instead of continuing this edit war which gets us and the project nowhere. SQGibbon (talk) 13:27, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

If you can come up with a compelling argument as to why Wikipedia guidelines should be ignored in this case then the rest of will agree with the change. The key is that it needs to be a compelling argument. Saying that you think it looks better with the flags or that it looks "drab" without them is you stating your opinion and is not the same thing as supplying a compelling argument. I think the flag icons look gaudy. Without them the articles look clean and professional; with them they look closer to really ugly Myspace pages. Obviously we're not going to be able to change each other's mind with respect to the aesthetics of flag usage. This means we need to shape the discussion around Wikipedia guidelines which is something you've not done so far. SQGibbon (talk) 18:42, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Future fights in fight records[edit]

Please refer to the MMA WikiProject in which a two-year old consensus has been revived to not allow future fights to appear in a fighter's record table. If you have arguments against this consensus, it would be best to to the project page and discuss it there. Thanks. --TreyGeek (talk) 15:21, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

I'll ask again for you to not add fights that have not been completed to a fighter's record history table. This is because of a consensus within the MMA WikiProject. Continuing to add future fights without discussing the issue will result in my interpreting your edits as unconstructive and possibly vandalism. Again, take it up with the WikiProject --TreyGeek (talk) 18:25, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Using different styles throughout the encyclopedia, as you did in Vitor Belfort, makes it harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. SQGibbon (talk) 16:02, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Marius Žaromskis. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive; until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. Jfgslo (talk) 18:52, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
