In my younger years, I have maliciously edited a page, disagreed with views on another page, and edited a page I thought was another (which I think I reverted). So to everyone, I have vandalized before. However I would like to move on and fix articles (after knowledge is power). However if you prefer I did not, I will discontinue my use of Wikipedia.

Knowledge is power
Well, I do not know if you are familiar with Francis Bacon and/or Idealism, but fixing articles (as much as I appreciate you doing it) isn't really empowering people to overcome nature or any of that sort. Greetings Mallerd (talk) 22:11, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
PS: I wouldn't care as much about vandalism as you do if I were you. Mistakes happen, don't let anyone else decide for you how to do things

I have so much on my plate right now I can not remember any of my wikipedia edits, would everyone mind from now on giving me more information than "Homer Lea"?
I was reading an article about a children's toy. It was basically a snow-globe like thing, except there was not glitter and plastic objects floating around in the globe; but living creatures. I believe there was aquatic plant-life, shrimp, tiny snails, and gravel. The globe had no openinings in it to feed the animals because the bi-products of the creatures feed each other. Anyway, I can not remember the name of this article and that simply bugs me. Does anyone know the name of this article? Kostantino888Z (talk) 22:58, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Kalimera Kostantino, I reverted your edit only because this is the translation of an article, and I don't think that one should change it. The italian word used there was "fattucchiera" who is a woman who does exactly what you say, and not a witch...Maybe my translation was wrong...
Yes, the translation is terribly wrong. Though I might be an American, I do know quite a bit of superstitions of at very least the Island of Euboea and other parts of Southern and Central Greece. I cannot stress enough that these women are not shamanka, they only have memorized prayers (not spells or incantations, prayers) for warding off demons and the like. They do not believe spirits have possessed them as shamanka have, or that they were given their power by nature or a dark force like Wiccans or witches.
- Obviously there's a cultural clash going on here. If you want, you can find another Greek wikipedian with knowledge on this subject and ask them.
Voyage of the Arctic Tern
I posted a really brief reply about Voyage of the Arctic Tern over at WP:REFUND, but I wanted to expand it a bit here. The easiest way to show notability for books is professional reviews, and this one seems to have a ton. Gnews (google news) is often the best way to find reviews, and it's coming up with a lot. Of course, those behind paywalls are problematic, but the first hit, The Telegraph gives us hope by saying that the book was well received by critics. I'm too lazy today to do the registration, but School Library Journal looks pretty promising, and while I could make a ton of jokes about the Lodi News-Sentinel, it does meet the definition of a professional review.

Thank you so much! The funny thing is when I googled it, only two obscure awards came up that didn't seem to have websites. Thanks for suggesting Google News, never in a million years would I have thought to use that :) Kostantino888Z (talk) 16:51, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Mark-Paul Gosselaar, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Indonesian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio a Trevi
Hi Konstantinos! I'm aware what the article says, I started it and wrote that specific bit :) I have absolutely no problem with the article being categorized in Category:Orthodox churches in Rome other than the fact that the category does not exist, and if it existed, would only include this same article. In fact, Italy is entirely missing from Category:Eastern Orthodox church buildings by country, what's left for Rome.
Of course, you could always create the whole "infrastructure" required to have a functioning Category:Orthodox churches in Rome or at least Category:Eastern Orthodox church buildings in Italy, but I'm not a fan of one-article categories, personally. Still, I'd have no problem with that.
Sorry if my reverts were unclear, I've never doubted your intentions to improve the article!
Ah, see, I thought you just doubted it was an Eastern church at all, my apologies! I'm only cleaning for a party today, so I can get to work on it in a few hours. I do believe that there's a monastery of ours in the south of Italy and we Greeks have a church out in Venice, so the category won't only have one article at all. I'll just have to do some research, first. Konstantinos (talk) 18:52, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
- Oh, there's definitely quite many Orthodox churches in Italy, the problem is to find/write the articles! I've added another one to the category, and I have to admit the task seems much more viable than I originally thought :) — Toдor Boжinov — 21:47, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Help with translation from Greek to English
Hello. Πρόσεξα ότι γνωρίζεις πολύ καλά ελληνικά. Θα ήθελα τη βοήθεια σου. Έχω μεταφράσει δύο λήμματα από την ελληνική Βικιπαίδεια στην αγγλική. Δυστυχώς, υπάρχουν κάποια λάθη, κυρίως συνταχτικά. Δεν έχω μεγάλη ευφράδεια στην αγγλική. Θα ήθελα να τα διαβάσεις και να κάνεις τις απαραίτητες διορθώσεις, αν μπορείς. Αν δεν ενδιαφέρεσαι, απολογούμαι για την ενόχληση. Xaris333 (talk) 13:14, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
I made one quick edit (I'm sorry for using English, it's just that I don't have time to manually use a Greek keyboard and then transfer my response here and I don't particularly like using Greeklish), but I will go more in-depth as the week progresses. This'll really be good practice for me because my reading and writing skills as of now still aren't perfect, so thank you for this opportunity. Konstantinos (talk) 02:19, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.
Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. AndyTheGrump (talk) 19:02, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Not only are you edit-warring on a biography of a living person, you are also ignoring a talk page discussion and imposing a new edit when, per WP:BRD and WP:CONSENSUS, the old version has precedence and the new edit should not be made until consensus to include it is clear.

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Hi, at Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge we're striving to bring about 10,000 article improvements and creations for the UK and Ireland and inspire others to create more content. In order to achieve this we need diversity of content, in all parts of the UK and Ireland on all topics. Eventually a regional contest will be held for all parts of the British Isles, like they were for Wales and the Wedt Country. We currently have just over 1900 articles and need contributors! If you think you'd be interested in collaborating on this and helping reach the target quicker, please sign up and begin listing your entries there as soon as possible! Thanks.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:41, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
