Just a thought - it might be better to hold of any more reverting until the SPI result is in, just to be sure we have a solid case and a block. (I don't really have any doubt, but it would avoid possible wikilawyering and counter-accusations) -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 02:53, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

No surprise, the SPI confirmed the socking, and his latest account has been blocked. I've reverted his edits - some of them might have been good, but we don't reward socks by allowing them to edit. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 07:50, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

NPV issue[edit]

Thank you for updating the section →First name on The reason why the two boxers were removed previously was because literally every other line in the article was a boxer! Most of these were one-liner articles, which clearly did not reflect an NPV regarding the usage of the name itself globally.

In the meantime Nobel Peace Prizes, statesmen, major figures from the literary world and from the sciences were simply missing; and this is an encyclopaedia entry after all...

I have a PhD in History and Philosophy, I have done some boxing in my day, and I'm not acquainted with any of the two links you included. But I am just concerned that in previous versions, half the name list was being used to spam advertise fighters. Again, every other line was a Hispanic boxer. Two of the fighters weren't even 21yr-old. I did leave two notes on the Talk page at the time. And again, this is not an article about boxing! It's an article on the name José. (talk) 00:55, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Just read your message on my talk page. Thank you for that. You'll notice that I have kept the changes you made. Sorry for the mishap. Cheers. (talk) 20:12, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Sourcing Videos[edit]

Yes, I see that I had written of music videos on pages and you deleted them, so do I have to put links to the video on YouTube for it? Caughtinmosh88 (talk) 13:39, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Judgement/Judgment on POI[edit]

The correct spelling of the word judgment and the episode title are the same -- no 'e'. We hashed that out a while ago. Evidently there was a press release with the erroneous (or alternate) spelling early on which some media sites pick up (and I believe at least some have subsequently corrected), and some WP:SPA made a HUGE stink about it, so a couple other editors and I did some research to sort it out. CBS and the DVD as well as the TV Guide and TitanTV (which sends descriptions to your cable box) listings have the spelling Judgment. Some of the discussion may still be on the talk page, but I'll have to double-check; it got a little weird and a lot was removed because of WP:NPA violations. If not, I can direct you back to roughly where it is in the page history if it matters. --Drmargi (talk) 18:33, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Under the Influence[edit]

Is it considered unreliable because it's in another language or is it just flat out unreliable? Caughtinmosh88 (talk) 16:16, 4 March 2013 (UTC)


Megadeths website also says that Cryptic Writings hit Platinum[1] which isn't the case. Unfortunately, not everything on Megadeths website is correct. The originals Dates were right Caughtinmosh88 (talk) 01:26, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

How bout allmusic then? Is that ok? Caughtinmosh88 (talk) 02:03, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
I get what you're saying about trusting the bands website but as you'll see in the link posted above, they say Cryptic Writings hit Platinum in 1998 but here at the RIAA database it's still gold [2] not only that it also shows the release date for the album which matches the one that was originally put. I think the band is wrong on this one unfortunatley (as much as they deserve that platinum record) and I would think that RIAA could be trusted. Caughtinmosh88 (talk) 10:55, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Rock Hard[edit]

Hi there! "Rock Hard magazine not on the list of approved professional reviews per WP:ALBUM/REVSIT." Rock Hard meets every guideline listed here. Thanks. LordRapture (talk) 17:56, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

No problem. ;) LordRapture (talk) 18:30, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Re: Youthanasia[edit]

I just did it because there are only two extra tracklisting templates, and most of the rest of the articles on Megadeth's albums have the bonus track things shown. If you want to hide it though, that's fine. If you do, please just put a hidden note there though so that i don't inadvertently unhide them in the future at some point.--L1A1 FAL (talk) 01:59, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

It's about the album. Can you expand the lead or you think it summarizes all aspects of the article in its present state?--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 15:35, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the little corrections and advices pal. I'm sure the article will pass the GA review.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 15:43, 20 September 2013 (UTC)


Why shouldn't I respond? I simply use the names as used in BoxRec. Isn't that good? claudevsq (talk) 07:42, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

First of all, "Carlos Molina" points to the American boxer. Carlos Amado Molina points to the right one, the Mexican boxer. "DEU" is the abbreviation I found here on Wikipedia under Template:flagicons... As for accents, they are commonly used in spanish names, but accents create problems in BoxRec systems... Saul Alvarez is not chamion for the moment anyway... As for Sergio Gabriel Martinez, threre is an ongoing dispute between two editors at BoxRec (not me), it should soon be resolved...

Greetings, claudevsq (talk) 17:52, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

"Oh Claudie lad"? You do not really expect an answer to that, do you? claudevsq (talk) 18:16, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

The earliest mention of George Groves vacating his EBU was on 3rd November.

File:Brad Fiedel - 1994 - The Terminator The Definite Edition.jpg[edit]

This image is too extraneous and essentially equivalent to standard album cover. Can I remove it from the page? --George Ho (talk) 04:18, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Release date of So Far, So Good... So What![edit]

Hi Mac! I noticed that you've adapted the songs duration according to the album's booklet. Since you have the CD, can you check if there is exact release date in the liner notes? RIAA says the album was released on 13 January 1988, but from previous experience, I know that they tend to push the release date one week earlier.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 22:02, 11 November 2013 (UTC)


Have you read WP:NOTBROKEN?--SaskatchewanSenator (talk) 23:15, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

... continued from User talk:SaskatchewanSenator#Re:_Redirects

Well, I certainly am not prepared to concede free rein for anyone to mess up the boxing champions article again, seeing as I had to (figuratively) claw and scratch for nearly a year to get the current level of consistency to stick ("De La Hoya" without the accent, "Mayweather, Jr." with the comma and period, etc). If accents get removed or redirects introduced, I'm reverting that shit without question. If there are indeed discussions to be made, I'll happily sit back and allow that to take place elsewhere on WP. Should any consensus be accomplished as a result, lemme know. Mac Dreamstate (talk) 19:45, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
Yes, Claude's edit warring made it difficult. I've had similar frustrations with him in the past and I hope he learned something from being blocked.
  • There is no consensus on a consistent use of accents in boxing articles. Hockey has developed a Manual of Style to deal with the issue: Wikipedia:Naming conventions (ice hockey). Maybe you'd like to have something similar for boxing.
  • There is consensus that redirects are useful and that it is unhelpful to edit links for no reason other than to avoid redirects.--SaskatchewanSenator (talk) 09:07, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Omar Figueroa/Mikey García[edit]

Omar Figueroa and Mikey García both represent México a they come to the rings with Mexican flags ONLY.

The case of Figueroa is even clearlier as he has the nationallity and grew up in México, he even says it himself that he is a Mexican from Tamaulipas:

“Yo estoy ansioso de ir a pelear a México, que la gente conozca a ‘La Panterita’ en México, que es un país hermoso, estoy bien orgulloso de ser mexicano y mi hijo tiene sangre mexicana y aunque nació en Texas mi esposa es de la misma colonia, del callejón donde vivíamos en Río Bravo y se puede decir que ‘La Panterita’ es también de Río Bravo, es Tamaulipeco." (talk) 22:46, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

That last remark of Figueroa was made by me, who I have just logged in. Daalo194 (talk) 22:48, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Cryptic Writings[edit]

Hey Mac! If you got a copy of Cryptic Writings, can you check whether some citations in the main article are correct? The second paragraph of the section would require some minor input, and the booklet might be helpful. See you.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 23:20, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Taking Over[edit]

Rat Skates was only on 2 Overkill studio albums, Feel the Fire and Taking Over. Feel the Fire was released through Megaforce only. Megaforce formed a partnership with Atlantic records in 1986 to distribute their albums in the United States. Taking Over was Rat Skates' first (and only) studio album released on Atlantic records. Overkill's next 5 albums would be released on Atlantic but Kundrat left after Taking Over. Paranoid90 (talk) 16:59, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Did you even read it? They ask him what he would like to know and he says "Who has my royalty checks! How I could have sold over 100,000 units on Atlantic records and not received one penny!" It's the final question asked. Paranoid90 (talk) 20:40, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
The readers almost never care about the source, they just read it. If they don't understand they can read the explanation I wrote. Paranoid90 (talk) 21:16, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Second diff at SPI[edit]

Per Deskana's comments at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Necroshine95 could you please provide a second diff that demonstrates why the two users are likely sockpuppets? NativeForeigner Talk 19:59, 9 January 2014 (UTC)


Hey Mac, if you're not too busy, can you post an opinion at Megadeth's talk page regarding the genre issue. Thanks in advance.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 10:50, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Mac, how are you? Wanted to ask if you can upload a new version of the cover art of Megadeth's Thirteen? The current one has higher resolution (460x460) than usual (300x300). Appreciate if you can handle this one. Bye.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Please stop reverting my edits without explanation. There's absolutely nothing unconstructive to revert, and no guideline is being breached. Caper454 (talk) 21:12, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Explaining your position from the start goes a long way towards avoiding conflict, rather than reverting an editor's work en masse without proper explanation. Cheers. Caper454 (talk) 21:47, 12 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi, thank you for the message, yes can you discuss with me on the albums talk page cheers. Lukejordan02 (talk) 14:44, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi, could you please provide your opinion over at the Youthanasia talk page when you get chance, thank you. Lukejordan02 (talk) 18:12, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

A question for you[edit]

Hi, is acoustic a genre of music? Lukejordan02 (talk) 23:39, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the reply, do you think it should be included in this aspect Damnation, I don't think it should be labelled as acoustic but another user does! I don't want to get into another edit war so your opinion would be very welcome. Lukejordan02 (talk) 23:48, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your comment, but may I say, the one source is classed as an unreliable source and the other source which is reliable actually is a link to a different album Ghost Reveries, doesn't that give me a plus? Lukejordan02 (talk) 00:12, 19 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi. Could you weigh in on the discussion at Talk:Of Human Feelings#Last sentence in Critical reception? It concerns whether a line detailing a certain critic's grade is off-topic or inappropriate to include. Dan56 (talk) 19:59, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

'I Am the Night' and 'Power Metal'[edit]

Hello, I see you have reverted my two previous edits, noting that the band's (Pantera's, in this case) nationality is on their bio page and that it doesn't need to be included in the albums descriptions. I thought that all albums must include a band's nationality in their description, regardless of wether it's described in their bio or not. Would you care to explain this to me? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teh Thrasher (talkcontribs) 19:55, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Track list numbering[edit]

There is currently a Rfc and discussion at Template talk:Track listing#RfC regarding track listings, about how the songs in a track listing should be numbered. The result could have repercussions for every article of albums originally released in vinyl. If you are interested, please join in the discussion there.

Bret Hart[edit]

Hi its Y2Joel here is this the best and only way to talk to you and leave messages on wiki?

I'm wondering why you deleted my editing on Bret Hart's wiki page when I added the date he was entered into the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame (pictured under legacy)

That is the correct date, I don't know how to tag sources.

I didn't make up Bret Hart being known as The Best There Is The Best There Was And The Best There Ever Will Be, it's a world wide known moniker that Bret has officially gone by since the mid 1990s which is part of Bret's legacy.

The additional information I added were sufficient accurate and relevant.

Is there a specific reason why you removed my information? Specifically with the date? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Y2Joel (talkcontribs) 05:41, 7 December 2014 (UTC)


Kuusamo is a city however since last year they present themselves newly as Ruka, that's why I changed it. (in 2013 still as Kuusamo) (in 2014 as Ruka) (in 2015 as Ruka) Sportomanokin (talk) 16:30, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Create another infobox fields[edit]

Maybe you should add another infobox fields for Ski Flying titles, Ski jumping titles (1996-2000) and Nordic T. titles to complete it.Sportomanokin (talk) 10:12, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Four hills tournament articles from 1980-2001 in english exist.Sportomanokin (talk) 10:13, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

You could also change and shorten the infobox field name from additional podiums to other podimus to get it in one (not two) line.Sportomanokin (talk) 10:40, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Infobox damage[edit]

Can you repair the seasons field which doesn't wanna show up? Sportomanokin (talk) 12:08, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Ok you just reverted everything but at the same time you deleted two fields that I created: official website and ski jump titles. Can you put those two back. What's the catch isn't there enough space, is infobox limited with fields or what? I don't get it? Sportomanokin (talk) 14:05, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Infobox Wintersport World Cup[edit]

I have a request. Infobox Wintersport World Cup needs to be updated. For example take german version of infobox which is perfect. If you know how to split/divided it in two parts for men and ladies. Updated like this if you can: Sportomanokin (talk) 11:02, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Kill 'Em All credits[edit]

Hey Mac, can you check in the CD booklet if Mustaine had written lyrics for "The Four Horsemen" on Kill 'Em All? I think he wasn't listed there few months ago, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Also, please check if the other credits are fine. Thanks and all the best.--Retrohead (talk) 13:06, 2 June 2015 (UTC)


Thank you for not resisting the Eubank nickname. I am sorry if I came off rude. I am friends with him and I know it will mean a lot to him to see it next week. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:32, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Absolutely no problem, it looks fine now. I had a feeling all along that the addition was legit, but I needed to make absolute sure that a reliable and accessible source was on hand to confirm the statement made by him. It's just how Wikipedia works regarding "biographies of living people". Mac Dreamstate (talk) 23:38, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Infobox double winter world cup[edit]

Hey. It's been a long time!

Can you revert back Template:Infobox Wintersport World Cup the way it was if you are not already doing it. It will be need for seasons before ladies were performing. I created/copied double infobox for bothe men and ladies Template:Infobox Double Wintersport World Cup. German Wikipedia also has single and double watersport infoboxes. Thanks. Sportomanokin (talk) 12:52, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Dave Mustaine Credit on Metallica Songs[edit]

Sup Mac, Dave Mustaine did not write the lyrics to "The Four Horsemen" on Kill 'Em All and, if you check the album, the lyric writer always gets first credit on Metallica songs. Hetfield's name always comes first (on EVERY Metallica song other than "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth") and other song contributors come afterward with Mustaine's name coming last on the songs he helped write. Mustaine's name comes last on ALL songs that Metallica gives him credit for. Just like on Metallica's Wiki and on all of the albums. CORE (talk) 14:41, 4 August 2015 (UTC)


I have started a discussion on the talkpage, hopefully it will lead to a consensus, it gets tedious with all the different IPs hoping in and out. Hopefully it will kill any edit wars (hopefully). Murry1975 (talk) 18:23, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Whats wrong?[edit]

Hi there, I am here just to ask some questions actually I want to know what is wrong with you? Why you reverted my all contributions from Deontay Wilder article? Yesterday I have added his next opponent which he will fight next sometime in December and January. Then I have added some other information and lastly I have added a picture as all articles have pictures. I am a huge fan of Deontay Wilder so I was trying to contribute something to his article. I am new here and I don't like articles without images. First I learned how to do yhis editing stuff then I have added info and picture but all my hard work comes to an end with your one click :( from now I will not edit anything here. Thank You TH3 UND3RTAK3R (talk) 09:51, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
