July 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. I have noticed that some of your recent genre changes, such as the one you made to So... How's Your Girl?, have conflicted with our neutral point of view and verifiability policies. While we invite all users to contribute constructively to Wikipedia, we urge all editors to provide reliable sources for edits made. When others disagree, we recommend you seek consensus for certain edits by discussing the matter on the article's talk page. Thank you. Dan56 (talk) 19:34, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

I now use edit summaries to explain the edits without leaving them blank. THANKS!

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to change genres without discussion or sources, as you did at The 411, you may be blocked from editing. Binksternet (talk) 00:01, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

This is the final warning that you will receive regarding persistent genre changing without discussion on edit summaries or reliable sources from websites. If you continue, as you did at I Thought It Was Over, you WILL be blocked from editing without further notice. Binksternet (talk) 00:50, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Reply: I know, this was from the time when MalmsImp was in its infancy and I didn't know what to do with Wikipedia. I used to edit genres without sources, so that is why I got these 2 messages up there. I wasn't a fully fledged user on Wikipedia at the time. :( JG Malmsimp (talk) 22:29, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rave, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hardcore. 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.

Refactoring talk page comment[edit]

Hi, is there a reason why you refactored a user's talk page comments in this edit? Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:16, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Reply: I deleted a portion of Talk:Peep and the Big Wide World, because it seemed very civil to me. I have reverted it for now. Thanks. JG Malmsimp (talk) 16:43, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Your removal is disruptive. The comment is 9 months old, is wrapped in collapses, and isn't directed at anyone specific. And, your edit leaves messy scraps behind, like a partial comment from the editor, no signature, and a slew of replies. That's not constructive. Since you don't seem to have the hang of policing talk page comments, I have to ask you to leave them alone and instead report comments you find objectionable to senior editors or admins. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:42, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

THANKS! JG Malmsimp (talk) 19:55, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Bernard Sumner (New Order vocalist)[edit]

Hello! I am researching your request for semiprotection of the article Bernard Sumner. I am having trouble with it. The way I read the history, this is not a case of clear-cut vandalism, but rather a content disagreement between you and the IP about the appropriate genres for this musician. I see that you have made no attempt at the talk page to discuss this - just threats on the user's talk page, and SHOUTING and name calling in the edit summaries when you revert. (Word to the wise: your edit summaries and protection requests will be taken more seriously if you make them in a more calm and professional manner.) So: Semi-protection is not supposed to be used as a way of favoring one side (the regular user) over another (the IP) in a content dispute. See WP:Page protection: "Semi-protection should not be used... to privilege registered users over unregistered users in (valid) content disputes." The recommended approach to such an edit war is to fully protect the page, in hopes of getting the combatants to talk about it. I doubt if that will work in this case, and I fully understand that you believe your version of the genres is correct and the IP's version is wrong. So I have puzzled about how to respond to your request. Here is my conclusion: I will semiprotect for a few days, but I request you to change your tone toward the other person (that is, the IP, who is in fact a person). Stop shouting at them, stop calling them a vandal. Instead politely invite them to the talk page, and post a discussion there explaining why you believe your version is the correct one. I realize they are using multiple IPs so a usertalk page request may not work, but at least suggest the article talk page in your edit summary when you revert. If they don't respond on the article talk page, or if they respond but are not convincing - then you have a much stronger case now and in the future. --MelanieN (talk) 18:38, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Reply: I'm not shouting, OK? Thanks.

P.S: This and other New Order/808 State articles are done by a Japanese LTA vandal by the way.

Malmsimp (talk) 10:18, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Talk page comments[edit]

Stop Please don't refactor other users' talk page comments as you did in these 3 edits at Talk:Oggy and the Cockroaches. Talk page formatting isn't particularly difficult. When you wish to reply to a discussion, indent your comment on a new line by adding a colon like this:

I'm tired.

:Why are you tired?
::I didn't get enough sleep last night.
:::Get some sleep tonight!
::::Good idea, thanks!

Additionally, there is no value to responding to a discussion that is four years old, as you did, or to conversations that have already been resolved. For these reasons, and since your reasons do not actively address ways to improve the article, your changes have been reverted. Please familiarize yourself with Wikpedia's talk page guidelines, as problematic talk page editing can become disruptive. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:01, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll try again
JG
Malmsimp (talk) 21:04, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Your edit here was also inappropriate. You don't have the authority to tell someone not to remove warnings from their talk page. They have a right to do that, even if irritating, however they cannot remove active sanctions, i.e. active block notices from their page until the block is over. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:34, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Striking out first part of warning above. In retrospect, I see that you were removing a comment that you found to be completely off topic. I get that. However, until you are familiar with normal talk page standards, like indenting, and things like that, I don't think it is wise for you to be removing content. I also stand by the second and third notes: there's no point in responding to 4 year old conversations, and users have the right to remove warnings from their talk pages. Apologies for my confusion. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:42, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

THANKS YOU TOO! :)

The Techno genre[edit]

Hello,
I've noticed that you've been removing techno genre from some of the electronic music group articles. In most of these instances, the genre label was unsourced (so their removal was fine). However, the genre was sourced in 808 State and Round & Round articles; I wanted to notify you that I've re-added the genres.

Also, can you please use the standart font size on the talk page discussions? I appreciate your work and caution, especially on battling the vandals. Thank you. Myxomatosis57 (talk) 21:07, 12 April 2015

I see. Thanks JG Malmsimp (talk) 07:53, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

JG

Malmsimp (talk) 18:44, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

Haha, so Orbital contain 'small traces of techno'? I think you need to re-educate yourself on what techno actually is, rather than removing every mention of it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.129.115.207 (talk) 01:33, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Purple Haze (Groove Armada song)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Purple Haze (Groove Armada song) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable song. No evidence of awards, charting or in depth coverage in independent reliable sources.

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.

Proposed deletion of Don't Look Now (Way Out West album)[edit]

Hello, Malmsimp. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Don't Look Now (Way Out West album), for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Sulfurboy (talk) 20:32, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Phil Drummond[edit]

Hello.

Why don't you do something about paring down the text in the Phil Drummond article that you removed the plagiarism banner from? If you look up Phil Drummond on facebook you'll find that most of the text is just copied from his facebook's "About" section. This is pathetic for an enyclopedia. Does his article even deserve to exist at all? If so, much appreciated if you cut it down a bit to non copypasted text 149.78.31.167 (talk) 18:45, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

WP:BITE[edit]

I'm not going to patronise you with a template, but your warning here was unduly harsh for a newcomer. Please start at Level 1, or Level 2 if it is obviously vandalism, and work through the warnings gradually should an editor continue to edit disruptively. Your use of BOLD ALL CAPS comes across as "bitey" and may put off new editors, and starting at Level 4 was uncalled for. Please be civil at all times - we are all humans on Wikipedia, even the anonymous IP editors, and the bots are operated by humans too. Bear this in mind. --Ches (talk) (contribs) 10:38, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

I gave a Level 2 caution on him owing to his techno genre vandalism on Snap!'s Rhythm is a Dancer. (9th February 2016) He has been doing that for the last 1 1/2 years.

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.

Proposed deletion of Duran Duran's former guitarist Alan Curtis[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Alan Curtis has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no reliable references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Wgolf (talk) 04:32, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Malmsimp, I've put a 7 day PROD on this article,which you recreated, but has had no sources on it since 2009, when it was created. If the prod is removed with no sources added, then the article is going in to the Afd process, with a probable delete. Please add source as soon as possible. scope_creep (talk) 12:12, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

January 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm McGeddon. Your recent edit to the page Duck as food 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. Unclear what you thought your edit was doing when its edit summary was just "FIXING", but "fattier" means "having more fat", in this context, not "being fatter and physically wider".

Nomination of Intensify for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Intensify is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Intensify until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. - TheMagnificentist 11:18, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Djum Djum[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.

A tag has been placed on Djum Djum requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, 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. MassiveYR 09:45, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that a recent edit of yours to the page Modeselektor has an edit summary that appears to be inaccurate or inappropriate. The summaries are helpful to people browsing an article's history, so it is important that you use edit summaries that accurately tell other editors what you did. Feel free to use the sandbox to make test edits. Using "FIXING" as a catch-all edit summary for 90% of your edits is very near to meaningless. McGeddon (talk) 08:40, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Well, how was I to know? Malmsimp (talk) 08:15, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
I was assuming that you didn't! That message was to let you know. --McGeddon (talk) 17:27, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Malmsimp (talk) 11:07, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Looks like you're still doing this, including on music-genre edits, on which you attracted a "final warning [for] persistent genre changing without discussion on edit summaries or reliable sources from websites" a couple of years ago. Please provide clear edit summaries for this kind of edit in future. --McGeddon (talk) 16:45, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply - I didn't know Wikipedia at the time - I was new there - but... my new edit summary will be more understandable to everyone.

THANKS!

1. I'm off this weekend.
2. I am away in Spain from 3rd-9th May (returning very late)

As a result, I am taking 1 MONTH off from Wikipedia - don't expect anything from me for a very long time I will return to Wikipedia editing on Tuesday 16th May

Thank you guys for everything - GOODBYE

JG

Malmsimp (talk) 10:59, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

16th May 2017 - WELCOME BACK![edit]

After being away for 1 month - I AM BACK! - WELCOME BACK TO WIKIPEDIA
After a negative complaint from McGeddon regarding "FIXING", from now on when you come into this website - my edit summary will change to "A general edit on article"
That way, I can tell other editors on the website what you did, so it is more understandable, rather than using "FIXING" as a catch-all edit summary for 95% of the edits.

Once again, thank you and welcome back again to Wikipedia

October 2017[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you change genres in pages without discussion or sources. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:44, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

I haven't done anything - in most instances any unsourced genres will be removed.

Malmsimp (talk) 09:20, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

You did do this. Is this really "a general edit on article"? I could see "removed unsourced genres. I could see many other options, but WP:GWAR is a problem and that's what this looks like. Better edit summaries might be appropriate. Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:09, 19 October 2017 (UTC)

November 2017[edit]

Please stop using "a general edit on article" as your edit summary. That tells editors nothing about what you've changed. Please describe what changes you have made. As Walter Görlitz noted above, you look like you're genre-warring when you don't explain exactly what you've done - selectively choosing which genres to retain and which to remove is genre-warring. You've been asked multiple times by editors to stop using this catch-all summary and you appear to have ignored every single one of them. See WP:Edit summaries. Ss112 09:51, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Hmm, in most instances any unsourced genres will be removed - you see - and yes it tells editors everything rather than leaving the summary blank.

JG

Malmsimp (talk) 20:50, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

They're all unsourced—you pick and chose which to retain, so I don't "see". And it's not a general edit, it's a controversial edit, as are quite a few of your edits, evidently, and you need to start describing what it is you're doing. I just pointed out you've had multiple editors tell you it doesn't describe what it is you've actually changed on the page. "General edit" doesn't say what you removed or added. Ss112 02:06, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

4th November 2017[edit]

New edit summary update once more - more specific than the last ones. "Miscellaneous information edits on article (spelling, vagueness, etc.etc) - JG"

I'm sure you'll get used to it.

Edit summaries and genres[edit]

Hi. Please read further down articles before removing genres thinking they are unsourced, as you did at Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control). You do realise the lead section of an article is a summary of the contents of the article, and does not need to be sourced directly—infobox included—right? If not, you should. The genres are sourced in the "composition and lyrics" section. Furthermore, you edited Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) and claimed in your edit summary you were editing for clarity. Well, maybe to you, but to others, it looked like you were adding further unsourced commentary to an already unsourced sentence. Just because it's already tagged with a "citation needed" notice does not excuse further additions to it. It would also be helpful to be more specific in your edit summaries about what exactly you did instead of a catch-all summary. You were asked to do this before and you just switched your summary for another generic one. It doesn't take that long to summarise what you did on that specific article. Thank you. Ss112 12:29, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Edit summaries like this are also not helpful. If you're telling yourself to go to sleep, that's great—you don't need to type it out for everybody else to see. This is also objectively not a minor edit. Ss112 12:33, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
Well I have told myself - not anyone else to go to sleep.

JG

Malmsimp (talk) 12:08, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

That is not addressing the issue whatsoever. It's not an appropriate edit summary, and it doesn't excuse what else you did on these articles. Also, don't edit others' talk page comments. I guess you also don't know talk page etiquette on WIkipedia. Read WP:Talk page guidelines. Ss112 17:02, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
