Hi, Kayla.mcgeorge. I see that you have been making unnecessary subheadings on articles, and I have approached you to ask you to stop doing this. The ones you added to the Adolescence article, for example, are not needed. This was broached on the article's talk page. (talk) 23:05, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm new and want to help organize pages on adolescent sexuality[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.

I'm concerned because I made some corrections of inaccurate information on the Adolescent sexuality page, as well as the Adolescence webpage, but these corrections were deleted. I understand I made subheadings that were not necessary (this is my first day on this - I am doing this for a class project). I really do want the information to be accurate so I ask for whoever completely changed what I did to please understand that I made other changes as well, besides subheadings that I truly believe are helpful and important. I will be editing the page further to add other information. I'm concerned about this and would like help. Kayla.mcgeorge (talk) 01:08, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle empowered your original changes, but for those that have been reverted, you should now proceed to discussion, preferably at the article talk pages. Your reversion at Adolescence prompts me to warn you of Wikipedia:Edit warring; even if you do not exceed the 3 revert-rule within 24 hours, repeated reversions to undiscussed changes may be seen as Wikipedia:Disruptive editing, which may result in Blocking or Banning. Subheadings had already been discussed on the talk page and rejected as unnecessary. Self-referential phrases including 'For more complete information on how socialization and gender affect adolescent sexuality, please visit the main article: Adolescent sexuality.' should be reduced to the Template:Main format. Do not remove sourced content without consensus. Drafting whole articles in sandboxes is fine, as moving them preserves the required editing history and license, but cut-and-paste page moves do not, and are therefore not allowed.

Editors are permitted to reorganize content, sections, tables, etc., but should check talk page discussions before doing so. See Help:Edit summary; edit summaries help other editors follow the changes you are making, especially when reorganizing; the comparison shows where it was removed and added, but is not yet dynamic enough to show directly that it was moved, which I now see is what you did. Your reversion at Adolescence removed a 'Citation needed' template, although it is still unclear whether that was for Albert Bandura alone or also for Margaret Mead. Cut and pasting is fine for portions, but not to overwrite an article. Dru of Id (talk) 03:24, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
