March 2011[edit]

Please stop. Continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Behind Enemy Lines (film), without resolving the problem that the template refers to may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your being blocked from editing Wikipedia. BLGM7 (talk) 12:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed maintenance templates from Behind Enemy Lines (film). When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. BLGM7 (talk) 18:52, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to Jesse Ventura, please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. I've reverted you as the YouTube videos were all copyright violations. Also, if you replace your edits with non-copyvio sources, can you make sure that you don't add anything not in the source, I wasn't sure if the comparison with Washington was your comment or in the source.

Opie & Anthony Show on YouTube[edit]

Where is it clear that this is not copyvio? Dougweller (talk) 06:11, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Jesse Ventura, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Rocky Horror and Jim Norton (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.

Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura[edit]

I suggest you read Wikipedia:Offensive material on the use of profanity in articles. Although Wikipedia doesn't censor articles, the use of profanity should be avoided unless it's pivotal to the article content. Mentioning that Icke told Ventura to "fuck off" (which was bleeped out on the show anyway) is trivial info. Cyberia23 (talk) 09:24, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Dumb and Dumber may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

September 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Amortias. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Megadeth, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
