2008 Summer Olympics closing ceremony flag bearers[edit]

Please don't create and abandon articles like 2008 Summer Olympics closing ceremony flag bearers ever again. The completely incorrect information you added there has been on Wikipedia for more than two years now and been seen by thousands of people. If you don't have the correct information, or don't have the time to add it, then don't create the page or leave the information out. Knowingly including false information is vandalism.

1975 referendum: errors in numbers of YES votes[edit]

The numbers of yes votes were originally shown as: Wales 869135; All UK 17378581: and the numbers tally.

However at some stage you changed these figures to: Wales 865139; All UK 17378851; and the numbers no longer tally.

Will you correct these in both articles?----Ehrenkater (talk) 16:10, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Of course I will correct it as it not a intentional change I just copied it down wrong. (MOTORAL1987 (talk) 12:43, 2 June 2016 (UTC))

Your contributed article, Accession of the United Kingdom to the European Economic Community[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Accession of the United Kingdom to the European Economic Community. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Enlargement of the European Union. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Enlargement of the European Union – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. 331dot (talk) 13:38, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Please note: Per request on my talk page, this article has been restored and the deletion discussion has been re-opened. Thanks. --Randykitty (talk) 14:07, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello MOTORAL1987. All or some of your addition(s) to Results of the United Kingdom European Communities membership referendum, 1975 has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and cite the source using an inline citation. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 00:10, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of British political crisis, 2016[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article British political crisis, 2016 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This appears to be a largely factually accurate account of somewhat related major political events but their portrayal as one recognised phenomenon and characterisation as a crisis seems to be unsupported, novel and POV.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm 87.102.116.36. Your recent edit to the page European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill 2017 appears to have added incorrect information, so I have removed it for now. If you believe the information was correct, please cite a reliable source or discuss your change on the article's talk page. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. The Bill is actually not extended to Gibraltar, and nowhere in the Bill actually says so (mentions Gibraltar). Foreign and external affairs and relations of Gibraltar are already officially handled by the UK (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) and HM Government [in the UK] (the UK (Home)) Government) anyway. This is absolute, patent British (and Gibraltar) constitutional nonsense! -- 87.102.116.36 (talk) 21:20, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Copying licensed material requires proper attribution[edit]

Hi. I see in a recent addition to European Union (Finance) Act 2015 you included material from a webpage that is available under an Open Parliament Licence. That's okay, but you have to give attribution so that our readers are made aware that you copied the prose rather than wrote it yourself. I've added the attribution for this particular instance. Please make sure that you follow this legal requirement when copying from compatibly-licensed material in the future. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 19:50, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Cricket World Cups[edit]

I've reverted all the page moves, as "YYYY Cricket World Cup" is correct as per WP:UCN. Please see discussions here and here and request a move if you disagree. Spike 'em (talk) 10:34, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

On a similar note, regarding your recent move of Grenfell Tower fire, it might be better if you were to raise potential moves at WP:RM rather than moving pages. I've known editors end up at WP:ANI over problematic page moving, with the result that they are either restricted from moving pages at all, or end up blocked. Would rather not see that happen if at all possible. Mjroots (talk) 12:40, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
Point taken look I am sorry for not consultanting the talk page first and I apologise but I don't like some of the personal stuff that has been thrown at me in response, I just have a slightly different view of things but all on the same boat and I think it's really sad that my slight different views can't be quite taken into account what's the difference between using the word fire or disaster? (MOTORAL1987 (talk) 12:44, 24 June 2017 (UTC))
Fire is less "tabloid", but if anyone searches for "Grenfell Tower disaster", the redirect will get them to the article. Have asked at Grenfell Tower fire talk page for people to back off a bit. Mjroots (talk) 12:47, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve European Union (Approval of Treaty Amendment Decision) Act 2012[edit]

Hi, I'm Boleyn. MOTORAL1987, thanks for creating European Union (Approval of Treaty Amendment Decision) Act 2012!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. All articles should have sources. The WP:BURDEN is on the creator to add these when they add the information.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

3RR[edit]

Hello. You've just broken WP:3RR on the referendum articles. Please self-revert or I'm afraid I'll be requesting your account be blocked. Cheers, Number 57 19:03, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

I have reverted as I was not aware of this rule I apologies I am just very frustrated at this problem. (MOTORAL1987 (talk) 19:08, 30 March 2018 (UTC))
Thank you. I'm sorry you're frustrated, but we have a referendum template for a reason – to ensure consistency. When people start making up their own templates, we lose that consistency, and it can then become a problem on other articles when editors see a table in one article and start making arguments along the lines of "if it's ok there, why can't we use it here" etc. Number 57 19:09, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
There is been no problem until today with the template for the EU referendum, in fact I have built on the template and used it in other articles as I think it’s much clearer to see and also it has a nice professional quality to it and I am really upset that it’s no longer accepted when it’s been on the article for about a year. (MOTORAL1987 (talk) 19:13, 30 March 2018 (UTC))
It doesn't matter that something hasn't been identified as a problem for a certain amount of time – some issues on Wikipedia are not corrected for many years. And it was creating problems because people were occasionally trying to copy the format into other articles. Again, I'm sorry that you're upset, but really you should never have created a non-standard table in the first place when we already had an existing one. I think the template also violates WP:MOSICON as there is no reason for the flag to be included. Number 57 19:17, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

Well good luck with all the reverting as virtually all UK referendum articles carry this version of the template and I am very proud of my work regardless of weither it has broken rules or not. (MOTORAL1987 (talk) 19:24, 30 March 2018 (UTC))

Just to let you know, if you revert across any of the articles again, then I'm going to be requesting that your main account is blocked. If you then continue to edit through IPs, all your edits will be immediately reverted and the block on your main account will be extended significantly. Number 57 11:36, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
