My stress level


Hey I noticed you've been going through dead links and trying to archive them. That kind of work is very underappreciated and of great value on Wikipedia. The process can be quite tedious since you have to check each link individually and hope that the Wayback machine caught it and a new domain owner didn't lock out the archives. (It also doesn't help that Japanese sites are atrocious at maintaining links) Keep it up! Opencooper (talk) 01:08, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

@Opencooper: Thanks! =) Yeah it is quite tedious but it opens up new anime/manga for me to browse upon while doing a helpful thing. I am also tagging sources which do not appear on Wayback, these will most likely have to be replaced by other sources. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:11, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Yeah I noticed your comments. And ideally alternate sources will be able to be found for those for verifiability purposes. Opencooper (talk) 01:21, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Most of the dead links I am finding that I have noticed repeats of include TokyoPop, Amazon, Oricon, and eBOOK Japan. For TokyoPop, and Amazon hopefully ANN has release dates in their news section that would cover those. As for Oricon I know there is a way to fix the links I just don't remember how to. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:29, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
For release dates, other resellers might also be usable in lieu of the original retailers. And I remember reading someone explaining how to find titles on Oricon on the WP:A&M talk page so it might be worth searching the talk page archives. Regardless, do keep in mind that dead links are permissible as sources so don't stress it too much since I doubt release dates are controversial. Opencooper (talk) 02:01, 4 January 2016 (UTC) and New England Anime Society[edit]

FYI: Although I was one of the founding members of the New England Anime Society and am the admin for, I do not currently hold any positions on the NEAS. I am indeed on staff with Anime Boston, but only as Game Shows Manager and not in any sort of "executive" or "director" role. As far as being a "primary source", this page says, "A primary source may only be used on Wikipedia to make straightforward, descriptive statements of facts that can be verified by any educated person with access to the primary source but without further, specialized knowledge." In stating the stats about Anime Boston, it's pretty easy for any person to verify since Anime Boston posts the same attendance numbers on social media every year. I put them on to make them much easier for people to find ...and there are really no other sources out there except Anime Boston itself and It's not like someone is out there doing any sort of third-party auditing for attendance at anime cons. It's quite likely that any other article you'd find attendance numbers in would have pulled them from anyway. the tag that "This article relies too much on references to primary sources." on the Anime Boston article is pretty unnecessary. It's not like anyone is saying the facts presented are not accurate. PatrickD (talk) 04:34, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

@PDelahanty: I have no problems with as a source, and would not encourage anyone to remove it from the article. The problem is that in general the article needs more third party sources. Okay per your discussion here I have removed my hidden comment there must be something though that was picked up by the globe or even by the Metro. On a different note I have been going to Anime Boston since 2007, and want to thank you for what you do. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:17, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Talk:Syrian Civil War[edit]

Do you have special powers bestowed, giving you special rights to close discussion sections, like you did here on Talk:Syrian Civil War yesterday? If people want to have a discussion somewhere, why forbid them to do so? If you suggest that the topic has been discussed before, you at least could have the politeness and helpfulness to tell us where and when that took place. --Corriebertus (talk) 14:11, 6 January 2016 (UTC)


The discussion has been closed at ANI, as I have said I have nothing more to say on the matter lets both move on okay? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:15, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hello. In this edit, 6Jan2016, on my page, you accused me of being uncivil. Could you please tell me what you consider to have been uncivil of me, and why you judge that to have been uncivil? I’m not aware of having been uncivil recently on pages where I‘ve met you. --Corriebertus (talk) 14:50, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
@Corriebertus: I gave an answer over at WP:AN. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 21:50, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Accusing someone of incivility is the gravest of accusations in Wikipedia. On 6January2016,14:31, you accused me of having been uncivil, without specifying that accusation. So, I asked you here, to corroborate that accusation. For an answer, you said: ‘see my answer over at WP:AN’, which you posted 16Jan2016,21:48.
That answer reads: “I agreed with Legacypac that this edit was not civil: [30]”, pointing at my edit of 6Jan,14:23 at Talk SCW. But at the time of your accusing me (6Jan,14:31), Legacypac had not yet commented on my edit of 6Jan,14:23.
So: your answer(16Jan), that you just agreed(6Jan,14:31) with an (not-existing) opinion of Legacypac is nonsense, a lie.
So, I have to conclude, that you refuse to give any corroboration of your accusing me(6Jan2016,14:31) of having been uncivil. That refusal to corroborate that severe accusation I consider rude and uncivil of you. Furthermore, page Wikipedia:Civility, section 3, identifies lying, harassment, and ill-considered accusations of impropriety as forms of incivility, and you seem to have perpetrated at least one of them at 6Jan2016,14:31. I warn and advice you, to stop those forms of uncivil etc. behaviour. If I see you doing things like that again, on me or on anyone, I’ll have to take it up at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents. --Corriebertus (talk) 14:18, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Corriebertus: Section 3 #1 refers to rudeness, and belittling a fellow editor. Can we just say we were both in the wrong and put this behind us? At this point I don't really care (as you can see I have let the discussion at Syrian Civil War be), I have other areas on Wikipedia I would like to focus my time on. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:31, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

I just filed a complaint on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Incivility of Knowledgekid87. --Corriebertus (talk) 10:15, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2016 January 15#My anus is bleeding[edit]

It takes a great deal of maturity and courage to do as you did here. I sincerely applaud you!

I came across this only because I have User talk:SPUI watchlisted. SPUI's long gone, and I didn't really know him. I don't remember why I ever watchlisted his talk page in the first place. I think he was controversial in his time. That said, he did do a considerable amount of work for the project. Thus, my thought when I saw the notice of the RfD was that there must have been a reason why SPUI would have created such a redirect. That set me to clue finding. I did not see an immediate reason why such a title should be connected to Rejected. This should be corrected in the target article. This is obviously how you, Largoplazo and Lenticel all concluded it was a hoax/vandalism. Searching the web for this title, associated with Rejected, is what lead me to find the crucial information.

Just a mild suggestion; when placing something for deletion (whatever it is), have a look to see when it was created. I tend to do this with things that seem suspect to me. My thought is that if it has been around for years (as it has in this case; 2005), there's probably something to it that needs more looking into.

The Rejected shorts are to me a very base form of art. I really don't see any redeeming qualities to them. Perhaps it's a failing of mine that I can't see through to why these shorts have gained fame. --Hammersoft (talk) 14:43, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

@Hammersoft: Thanks, I had actually heard of the "My spoon is too big" clip via youtube I will do more digging next time. As for the fame yeah I tend to agree the films were okay but nothing that said Bill Plympton to me. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:52, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

What is Considered an Anime Convention?[edit]

Regarding this template edit, what counts as an anime convention? If a convention has an element of video gaming, even if it is Japanese video gaming, does this disqualify it as an anime convention? Where does manga make things fall in this spectrum? What about other non-anime content?

All things considered, perhaps Anime Banzai shouldn't be listed in this template as it has large sections of its convention dedicated to card gaming and video gaming. Anime Expo should be removed as it has "table top gaming, competitions, an arcade, and concerts." So too should Nan Desu Kan which features a large arcade/console gaming area, furry panels, and a dedicated tabletop gaming area.

Nz17 (talk) 04:04, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

@Nz17: It depends on what the convention is labeling itself as. Most anime conventions have gaming, roleplaying, and such but are not advertised as a Gaming convention. @TheFarix: is the person to ask as well as he might have additional info/advice to offer. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:20, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
@Knowledgekid87: Thanks. I was just confused about the classification. I saw this over at Category:Multigenre conventions:
"Note to editors: Please use this category for conventions that focus on three or more genres. Conventions with just two genres, e.g. science fiction and fantasy, should instead be placed in the categories for both the relevant genres."

Hey im all for a good joke, your edit was pretty funny lol but this isn't the best place for it unless you want to get blocked from editing. You should try editing the Unencyclopedia. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:17, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

I think that's fair. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:49, 7 March 2016 (UTC)


I see you've decided to switch the source from Green Papers to the New York Time. Waiting until the discussion was over would've been nice, but at least make sure to leave a source for every contest. Right now, the source you've given for Democrats Abroad and Northern Marianas link to "American Samoa", and that source doesn't provide the popular vote. Abjiklɐm (tɐlk) 07:43, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

@Abjiklam: In the event of a switchback I would be more than happy to take responsibility, and switch the numbers/sources back to the way they were. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 13:13, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

@Knowledgekid87: Thanks for the change from "American Samoa" to "Non-state results", but the problem remains that no source is given for the popular vote. Abjiklɐm (tɐlk) 23:47, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
There has to be a source out there somewhere, I will do some looking. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 23:49, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Which source should we use for the delegate count? (Thank you)[edit]

I'm not sure who to thank, but I saw your post on the section so I would like to thank you for having settled on a source with other users. We will use the Green Papers until official results are announced. Just hope there wasn't too much of a fiasco, as I was the one who first asked the question!

Re: Salt request[edit]

Re your message: I thought about salting it, but then it would inevitably be written under a different name. Leaving it unsalted acts as a canary and the deletion history makes it easier for other admins to figure out who it belongs to. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 02:39, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

@Gogo Dodo: Okay fair enough. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:40, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
I took a look at the SPI archives. It moved as least once before from Criticism of Weekly Shōnen Jump. I salted it, so it will appear somewhere else now. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 02:47, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Well the good news is that there are only so many title combinations out there that can be used. In each case it will be picked up via new articles that need patrolling. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:56, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

i do know that[edit]

Trophy.png i do know that
i do know that but he is not understanding. i did the right thing and there was no wrong. IF I EDITED wrong i would say sorry but there is nothing with it. if you are so understanding pls tell him for me as i PERSONALLY FEEL HE LIKES TO ANNOY me. ALL MY EDITS i DO CAREFULLY.. i do not do trash edits AonoTsukune95 (talk) 14:36, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
@AonoTsukune95: Before making this kind of an edit, [1] please first have a discussion on the editor's talk-page. If you do not receive any communication (Wait 24 hours for a reply as time zones vary) then try bringing it up at WP:ANI. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 14:40, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

well he just undo all i edited yesterday, so you tell me what is wrong?

as i said i do not do trash edit. everything i do i do my best. i correct sentece my own sentence/grammar. provide info without spoiling as much as possible. IF I DID do wrong i get it...the thing that is funny is that nothing is wrong. so i feel he just likes to annoy me. I CAN 100% ENSURE YOU that I WILL AND NEVER DO TRASH EDIT like many other editors. i have my own standards.

THIS CAN GO ON FOREVER IF he do not be more understanding and he call himself a senior editor/wiki editor. cannot even recognise good edits and shit edits AonoTsukune95 (talk) 14:44, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

forgot to mention this btw

and you said keep cool? i do try to be calm but when he keep reundo what i do it piss me off. funny thing like i said all edits i make is off good quality. i never make unecessary edits. EVERYTHING I DO is TO MAKE BETTER READING.

so it kind of annoys me if he wants to go on that way. i will try to cool it but no promises if he intends to keep reundo my good edits and when shit edits happen he does not reundo it.

JUST WOW....WOW.....WOW..... AonoTsukune95 (talk) 14:51, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

are you ok?

huh?? that info was provided by me. i can remove it. what gives you the right to do it when it was done by me?? i am undoing it for the last time. please understand that it was provided by me and i wish to retract it AonoTsukune95 (talk) 07:50, 28 April 2016 (UTC) |}

Death of Prince AFD[edit]

The Death of Prince AFD was improperly closed. For one thing, non-administrative closures are to be done only in non-controversial AFD's. This is far from it. The AFD was also improper because the Reactions of the Death of Prince was nearly simultaneous with the Death of Prince AFD. Since the Reactions of the Death of Prince was a redirect to Death of Prince, Death of Prince cannot be deleted or redirected. If that were the intent, then the Reactions to the Death of Prince, which was closed first, would be a direct redirect to Prince (musician). Furthermore, a DRV is ok if there is a significant change. I suspect there will be when Prince is declared to have an overdose in a few weeks. With all that, DRV would definitely be appropriate and a win for the article.

I fully realize that many people don't like that article. But that is displeasure at Wikipedia and Prince should not be punished for that. Those people should have a community wide discussion about Wikipedia. If they only want stodgy articles like that found in a book version of an encyclopedia, I would happily live with it.

In the interim, I am starting a bold test to see how much can be merged. I suspect Softlavender and his friends will remove it, being the contentious and aggressive bullies they are. I also plan to start a section on the talk page of Prince (musician) about possible new ideas and news articles about Prince's death. That way, we will have research materials in one place. That is a square wheeled way to edit and is like editing with the secret police standing behind you (inhibits boldness and reduces participation) but that will have to do.

Castle Point Anime Convention[edit]

Want to get your opinion on some sources before I consider taking this to AFD, sadly even with the years since its deletion and recreation I don't think Castle Point Anime Convention has enough sources. This is what I could find:

  1. Thousands flock, in costume
  2. Stevens readies for Castle Point
  3. Artists' alley at Castle Point Anime Convention
  4. Castle Point Anime Convention in Hoboken continues
  5. Hoboken's Castle Point Anime Convention begins

The Stute (Castle Point Colleges Newspaper)

  1. CPAC shatters attendance record
  2. Castle Point Anime Convention Preview

The problems I'm coming up with, is while the articles are ok, and there are several, they are older. I don't think the college newspaper would survive an AFD debate. I've searched deep and couldn't find any other sources that would meet project standards at this point. Esw01407 (talk) 18:11, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

@Esw01407: per WP:NTEMP it doesn't matter how old the sources are, it would be nice though to get some more widespread coverage though. Yes AfD is an option, but there are convention articles that are in far worse shape so I would start with those. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 17:53, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

U.S. House elections, 2016[edit]

I've removed the map but have also posted in the discussions page. (S)he can restore it when deemed appropriate, but I feel it sets a dangerous precedent to keep it up currently when none of those races have actually been decided. In fact, all races are susceptible to Write-In races which can sprout up at any moment, regardless of how unlikely that is to happen.

Reverts on Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016[edit]

Hello Knowledgekid87, I'd hate to fall into an edit war with you because I appreciate your contributions to the topics where we have randomly been in touch. However I must point out that you just violated the 1-revert-per-day rule which is in place at Democratic Party presidential primaries, 2016, so I would kindly ask you to self-revert your latest edits to this version and let other editors apply any changes they deem appropriate. As you rightly pointed out, the presumptive nominee debate will be settled in a few hours anyway but I believe we shouldn't have thrown out our painstakingly agreed consensus on sources just for the joy of being a few hours early; there has been all day a lot of debating among media professionals and Democrats over the AP announcement which may look designed to influence the election -- amazingly, people find convincing arguments for saying it would be positive or negative for either candidate! My opinion is that the announcement was simply sent out to boost media audience, with no conspiracy to help either side. For my part I have reverted you once and won't touch the page further tonight. Kind regards, — JFG talk 23:53, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Utah isn't a swing state[edit]

thanks for updating election articles, particularly polling.

I am talking predictions not polls, we have The Cook Political Report, Sabato's Crystal Ball, Stuart Rothenberg, and RealClearPolitics. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 00:47, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
And which of those has Utah as a swing state? Tom B (talk) 02:27, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
All four of them, none are predicting it as "Safe", right now Indiana has the same ratings if you look at the table. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:28, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
No, none of the 4 are, I asked which are predicting it as swing state. I agree, Indiana isn't a swing state either, we should remove both, Tom B (talk) 02:38, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I don't think any source is coming out to say "these are the swing states" I cant find it over at 538 other than maps and analysis which is also used over at the other prediction sources. So in short can you tell me where there is a source that in writing says "Yes these are the states"? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:45, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I've already said The NY Times has Utah as the 4th safest republican state: [4]. that is not a poll that is a prediction. You've put in the article that Utah is a swing state. As I asked at the top of this section, please may you tell me/the reader, where there is a source in writing for that? I think we're going to have take this to the article talkpage if you're going to continue to insist that Utah, Indiana are swing states. They are not. Tom B (talk) 03:01, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
I think you are confused, NYT is predicting that Utah is the 4th safest state. This is a prediction, it is not saying "Utah is not a battleground/swing state". As I have pointed above though 4 other sources have also made their own predictions. All three (which we use btw) are pointing towards "Likely Republican" which is not "Safe Republican". - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 03:06, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
No, I'm not confused, Utah is not a key battleground state in this election. All 3 are pointing towards "Likely" not "Safe", no person has been arguing with you about what states are completely safe or not. The section is about the 10 or so key battleground states not for the 38 states that are "unsafe". Tom B (talk) 03:23, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
One innovative method might be to use the top 10 or so of the 'chance of tipping the election' list on 538 [5]? Tom B (talk) 03:35, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

My apology[edit]

I'm sorry of engaging an edit war, but I just want to leave my editing on those articles just the way they are. I never want to cause trouble, I want to prevent people from being misleading and that's why I changed them. I hope you understand the situation I have been through. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anthony Duran (talkcontribs) 16:04, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

@Anthony Duran: You need to discuss your edits before you go ahead. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:09, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

I did. This is my first time doing this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anthony Duran (talkcontribs) 16:14, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Okay, what I need you to do is respond over at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Anime and manga. Rather than blank the discussion which doesn't look good to those around you, respond with why you think you are right. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:16, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Editing a character article[edit]

Look, I don't care if I get blocked every single day. All I wanted to is let the readers know the true facts about this character, I know how a romantic comedy functions, I just want you guys to know that Tsukune and Moka are just friends and nothing else, I've watched the anime and read the manga. Nothing in the world is going to change between the relationship between two characters. Since it is an harem anime, the main male protagonist has more than one love interest and Moka is just one of those main female characters in the show despite being the title character. I could have a chat with the original manga artist, Akihisa Ikeda so I can settle this conversation once and for all. You guys can reach contact with him from Nichinan, Miyazaki, Japan from where I live the address, 3201 W 10th Avenue Pl Broomfield, CO 80020.

If you want this conflict to stop, just leave my editing alone or I'll continue to do this, until you stop. So go ahead, falsely accuse me of harassing some of your colleagues, block me for twenty-four hours, but I'll beat it and we'll start the whole thing all over again.

You have been warned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anthony Duran (talkcontribs) 17:18, 8 September 2016 (UTC)


Let me sort this out later. You are completely right about the use of the images but I have another way of dealing with it.SephyTheThird (talk) 07:19, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

@SephyTheThird: Okay, good luck. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 13:08, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
I've sent two of the images to XFD. We can go from there.SephyTheThird (talk) 18:53, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

WP:VPP discussion about terrorism[edit]

There is a VPP discussion about distinguishing between terrorist attacks and non-terrorist attacks, if you would like to participate. Parsley Man (talk) 23:05, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Demonizer Zilch[edit]

Just wanted to let you know the history behind the inconsistency you found: a few months ago (I think it may have been in June) Yen pushed back the release dates for a bunch of volumes by about a week (I know because I had to go around and update a bunch of articles). However, ANN's encyclopedia didn't get updated with the new dates. This happens fairly often, actually - it's not unusual to see a wrong release date in ANN's weekly schedule. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 19:24, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

@G S Palmer: Oh okay thanks, guess I will just have to wait a bit longer to get my copy then. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:55, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Well, judging form some pictures I've seen, a few pre-order copies may be out early, but if you haven't ordered it yet, then probably... G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 04:21, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
@G S Palmer: I picked up my copy today, will still go with the official release date though. Im looking forward to expanding the article's plot. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:21, 27 September 2016 (UTC)


Can you also talk to him? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 03:59, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

I will try although I don't think it will do much good. Sadly WP:ANI may be the only way to go forward with this as this user has already rubbed more than one editor the wrong way. I see no indication that they are listening to anyone. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 04:01, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
