Batch undo?[edit]

Hi, I noticed you quickly undid scores of edits by user Doodifools. Is there a way to quickly undo a given user's edits or did you just do that manually on each article? Thanks! Henry chianski (talk) 12:29, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

I sometimes use this tool, but it is very tricky because it may revert all contributions, or it may not revert some. Materialscientist (talk) 01:07, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

As a Ranidu fan and Sri Lankan,[edit]

Ranidu never released singles. The person who made the article has no idea about what a single is. Also Ranidu entered his career in 2006, not 2003. Every source in the internet is unreliable. Ranidu is not a singer as his batchmate is Iraj (rapper) and he is a rapper. Ranidu is not considered a singer as he doesn't have a musical voice. Please do not revert edits or add protection in the article as I'm editing it honestly. Please stop your disruptive editing. (talk) 10:40, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

My edit to biography of Rick Roberts (musician)[edit]

Thank you for your message to me. As noted, this was my first edit ever, so perhaps I'm not doing things correctly. I'd like to discuss your stated concern with you.

My edit was to the entry for a living musician, songwriter and author, Rick Roberts. The intent of my edit was to correct the Wiki page in a most significant way - prior to the edit, there was no reference to a most important event in Mr. Roberts' life. That is, a traumatic brain injury that he suffered approximately 10 years ago, and which has affected his ability to perform in public.

You note that I failed to include a "citation to a reliable source". I'm an attorney, so I do understand the concepts of citation and sources. I believed that I had made clear that my "reliable source" was my own personal observation at a recent live performance by the artist, and the artist's own statements made at that performance. I identified date and place of the live performance. I also noted that the subject, Mr. Roberts, has written 2 published books on his life, which I suppose could be the "reliable source" that you suggest.

All that being said, how would you suggest I revise my edit, to correct the deficiencies? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks much!

Edits to the Bio of Kayzie Rogers[edit]

Hey there, Kayzie Rogers, here. I have noticed that someone has been fooling around with my Wiki bio. For instance, my credit for Pokemon has been removed twice, and I have had to edit it back in. I am one of the original actors on this popular show and worked for 20 years and voiced over 100 characters. I think that rates a credit, don't you? Also someone keeps putting "she announced her retirement in 2017." I have not announced anything of the sort. I have stopped doing Pokemon, but that does not mean I am retired. Having this sentence on my biography has most likely cost me auditions, and perhaps income. Also, I have added my birth name, Katherine Anne Freeman and moved my professional name (Kayzie Rogers) to"other names." I certainly hope that the person who keeps changing my bio will be blocked. Thank you.

Kayzie Rogers.


Hello,Materialscientist, I'm unitsdone. And you did make a mistake and i know that because I'm a Maldivian myself. But I don't know how to cite, and my parents won't allow me to. But, still, I want to find a way to put the information back. And where can I find this "Page history"?

  1. ^ My source is myself, as I am the subject of the biography. I know what is the truth about myself.


Hey bud, I am concerned with User:Joep41 recent edits. He basically reverted me to favour his own images. This is a violation of WP:OWN, as he is favouring his own images. I have sent him numerous warnings and I am really concerned that his constant reverts are just causing his images to be displayed in honour of him. Please can you either warn or block him to teach him a lesson :) Cheers --EurovisionNim (talk to me)(see my edits) 14:54, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

I have contacted Nimisha to try to discuss the poor quality pictures she is adding. Unfortunately, she is not open to discuss and instead is sending messages pretending to be an admin. I encourage you to look at both sets of photos and choose the ones that add the most value. i will honor your judgement. I admin sever Kia clubs around the world, I am trying to represent the wishes of the Sorento enthusiasts, vs attempting to proliferate my own work or name.

Happy to discuss Joep41.

Joep41, why can't you just do an edit revert? – The previous images were fine --EurovisionNim (talk to me)(see my edits) 15:13, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Nimisha, the pictures your adding are of Kia's sitting in car parks, the ones your replacing are showing the Kia driving. that one was just reverted to the picture before you changed it. the Gold Kia show another aspect of the Sorento, one that is mentioned in the Article. One of the draws of the Kia enthusiast, is Green Laneing or Off Reading, that was not depicted in any of the "car park" shots. While I understand your desire to be a photographer and a Wiki Admin, you don't have an understanding of the Kia Sorento or its enthusiasts. I noticed you update pictures of just about everything, ve a vested interest in specific vehicles and their uses. Some vehicles like the Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Brands and even the Kia mean more to people. than just a venue to Proliferate your pictures. I am an enthusiasts and represent people who are passionate about this vehicle, where as you seam to be just pushing for volume of edits. Would it hurt to leave a few posts to people who care about the topic? There are plenty of buses and Minivans that nobody would care about you changing. your pictures fail to capture the essence of the subject, they just represent the basic appearance. Excuse typos, i'm old and my eyes suck. Thanks Joep41

Nimisha, Why are you reposting my picture and passing it off as yours?


I give up, if posting pictures on random article is what add value to your live, I feel bad for you. i'm going to play with my kids. JoeP41 out

Boston Herald Edit[edit]


You mentioned my edit was removed because it "wasn't constructive".

Check the diff above, see the changes I made/lines I removed at the time. Furthermore, the criticism sections I removed were verbatim copy/paste text criticizing Ron Borges specifically from his own Wikipedia entry, not the Herald; these weren't, and still aren't, relevant to the Herald, nor are the bits about Borges' credits in video games and other, non-Herald media.

I wasn't sandboxing, or shitposting. I was removing vandalism, as I clearly cited in the comment before committing the changes.

Edits to Bio of Kayzie Rogers[edit]

Hey Materialscientist,

Yes, I am trying to make edits to my own bio.

I want to at least replace a Animation credit that has been removed: Pokemon

I was one of the original actors on the show which debuted in 1997. I continued to work on the show until this year. That's 20 years of working on a television series which had close to 50 episodes per season, and now my credit has been deleted. My credits for the many Pokemon movies have remained, however. The show and the movies are not the same thing.

This is the reason I keep trying to change my bio back to the original. I see no "conflict of interest," here, but rather, the "whole truth."

Here are some references:

Behind the Voice Actors:

Here is my IMDb Page:

I sourced Bulbapedia yesterday, but that did no good, my television credit for Pokemon was reverted anyway. Today I am going to try to replace it again with all three references.

Thank you

Kayzie Rogers

Hi, received a noticed that you are under the impression that I tried to make an alteration to a wikipedia article. I have not done so, nor would I imagine any circumstance in which I would wish to do so. So, I am a bit concerned about your message. Is there a possibility that you have mistakenly misidentified me, or is there a possibility that someone else has gotten ahold of my .. have no idea how one would even begin this procedure, so I'm not sure what one would fraudulently require to exploit this situation. Either way, would appreciate a reply to help clarify this situation.

Hi there Materialscientist,

I have a feeling that the headline IP address has been used by Killer Wiki Busters as it keeps on vandalizing pages beginning with USS and replaced content with the same word, which then gets caught automatically by ClueBot NG. That is to me some sort of sock puppetry and hence should also be blocked for block evasion. This is the one you've blocked and this is the proof as to what I am on about.

Wrestling vandal[edit]

Trackinfo (talk) 06:50, 3 September 2017 (UTC) again. On another subject, you seem to have found a treasure trove of old pictures for track and field athletes. I saw the protected eBay images but I don't know where you are finding them clean or who is processing them into the commons. I saw some images that will certainly improve articles I have worked on. Trackinfo (talk) 09:11, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Uploading images is my top priority. If you find what you need, I can upload and clean up. I do all image processing. If you follow my uploads on Commons you know how all this works. Typically I upload watermarked images and clean them up later, offline. 10:41, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

OK, based on what I saw in the ebay ad, I started with a google search and found we already have better, posted at [3] but when I posted it to en, it didn't work. Something more is wrong. Trackinfo (talk) 16:35, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
I looked for some other people and found my way to this site which has a treasure trove of images all unsourced uncredited but clearly are from before 1977. Another one is from this site covering two athletes I'd like to see images of. But looking further there are a lot of images on this site. Trackinfo (talk) 22:46, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

We need to have a back side of the photo, otherwise it is difficult to prove it was published without copyright notice. This is why I use ebay (for this particular license, {{PD-US-no notice}}). Materialscientist (talk) 23:10, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

ITN image[edit]

Greetings. We customarily display portrait-oriented images at 100px in width, landscape-oriented images at 100px in height, and square images at 120x120px. I selected a square image because the 120px width enabled the caption ("Floyd Mayweather Jr.") to fit on one line under the default settings. You switched to a portrait-oriented image and retained the 120px width, resulting in an unusually large size. That particular shot doesn't lend itself to a square crop, so I've substituted a similar photograph from the same event (which apparently hadn't been uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons until now). —David Levy 03:59, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

I'd resize my image - yours has a poor composition (symmetry, head tilt, stray woman on background). Materialscientist (talk) 05:01, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
I'd resize my image -
As noted above, the 120px width is necessary to properly accommodate a single-line caption (the aesthetic significance of which is relatively high in the case of a person's name).
yours has a poor composition (symmetry, head tilt, stray woman on background).
I'd hoped to avoid raising the subject, but I regard this crop's composition as poor. In particular, Mayweather's eyes are too low.
After typing the above, I remembered a previous discussion that covered similar ground. As in that instance, no offense is intended. This is a subjective area (in which it seems that our respective sensibilities tend to clash). —David Levy 07:06, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Warning Received[edit]


I received a warning to refrain from posting uncited information, with an emphasized warning with respect to anything controversial.

I believe I have never posted any uncited information (although apologies if I'm incorrect), could you please provide to me the specifics and the basis for the warning as I do not think the warning is well founded. Apologies if this information was included in some link related to the warning- I did not see any reference to my post or anything, but do understand that perhaps I missed it (in which case, apologies).


To respond to the footnote ^1 below (if that footnote is a response to my post immediately above)-

I did not ask the basis for your information- I asked which article it is that I am alleged to have edited, and - critically- the instance of me supposedly posting information that is uncited. To be clear I am stating that I have never posted uncited information. If you have removed information that I posted on an article about yourself, that is fine- but of course I object to a warning which claims that I posted uncited information when I believe I did not. I symphathize if the information I posted was incorrect- in which case I don't mind whatever I supposedly posted being taken down- but believe that I have never posted any uncited material whatsoever. Could you please, for transparency's sake, cite the alleged uncited post that I made and explain the context of the warning that you sent me?

Thanks, my bad. Materialscientist (talk) 23:10, 12 September 2017 (UTC)


Hi, OK, my apologies ! GraemeKad (talk) 23:04, 12 September 2017 (UTC)


Just in case you've missed it, I asked you a question a few sections up. That man from Nantucket (talk) 23:36, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Eimukas22 is back with yet another sockpuppet[edit]

Looks like Eimukas22 is back with this and this users. The registered user is continuing the same editing pattern as Eimukas22 and the IP user has made only 2 edits so far, but at same article and section. The registered user is also impersonating other user with similar nickname. Can you take a look at this? – Sabbatino (talk) 07:26, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

I am his son and I was witness to and victim of the behavior that I described. How much stronger can a source be? What would you consider substantial citation. I can put my hand on a bible and speak the words. I'm absolutely serious. I feel that it is important that the quite serious abuses my father subjected myself and my sibling to are documented if he is going to have a wiki with all of his plaudits.

To the person who says he is "his son" I have no knowledge of this article, you or your father. What is considered a reliable source on the English Wikipedia is something like a newspaper. Do you have anything like that? If you have a problem with the article, you should send an email to this address: They will try and help you and will explain why or why they can't make the changes you want to make to the article. Good luck! That man from Nantucket (talk) 19:56, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

User:Big man sergio[edit]

A few days ago, you blocked User:Big man sergio. Today, User:Big man Sergio reborn was created. Related? Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 00:26, 14 September 2017 (UTC)[edit]

Would you mind taking a look at this IPs recent edits? They've since continued editing straight after your {{Checkuser block}}, so it may be the same person back again (whoever the intended target for the block was when you last blocked them). Thanks. (talk) 04:23, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

My blocking[edit]

This is the only account I have created. I have over 11,000 edits to this account (check my editing history). I am neither a vandal nor a sock puppet, despite the claims of an IP address user who is a sock puppet of TomWatkins1970. You have been duped by them. Please remedy this and remove my name from the block log.Nqr9 (talk) 08:20, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Oh, I see you fixed this/it was a mistake. Thanks.Nqr9 (talk) 08:32, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Furthermore, the issue on the Matt Goss article was not an "edit war", but myself and 2 other editors, with registered accounts and extensive editing histories, reverting the vandalism of TomWatkins1970, who uses multiple accounts and IP addresses. To an outsider it may look like an "edit war", but if you look at the actual content they added, which was merely a copy and paste job from the Bros page, along with some deliberately false information added earlier, it is not a "content dispute".Nqr9 (talk) 08:36, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Your use of revision deletion[edit]

Hi Materialscientist! It's good to talk to you again! I hope things are going well and that wiki life hasn't been keeping you too busy :-P. I'm messaging you in regards to your recent use of revision deletion to Special:Log/Block - where you redacted the logs of your erroneous blocking (and unblocking) of Nqr9. Blocking the wrong user accidentally is a mistake we all make - hell, I've done it a few times... it happens and it's not a big deal at all. I just wanted to remind you that revision deletion absolutely cannot be used to redact or hide logs of erroneous or unfavorable actions. If you weren't aware or had forgotten about this part of the rev del policy, again - shit happens and nobody is perfect ;-). Just take a quick second and skim through this section of the rev del policy for a quick refresher :-). I just don't want to see something silly like this come back to haunt you if discovered and interpreted the wrong way by someone else down the road. Just keeping an eye out for my fellow editors ;-). I hope you're having a great day today, and I'll surely see you out on the battlefield as I always do... lol. Cheers -- ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 11:13, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks (I've never used revdel for this purpose before). Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 11:12, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah that's what I figured. Oh well... you didn't know. No biggie ;-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 11:15, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Block of User:Maréchal oOui Oui[edit]

Hey there, I wanted to know if you'd be willing to review the block of Maréchal oOui Oui, and the unblock request they placed on their talk page. I'm willing to accept that they were testing in good faith and didn't understand quite how Wikipedia worked, and chalk it up to a lesson learned. Feel free to chime in on their talk page when you can. RickinBaltimore (talk) 14:27, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]


Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

Proposed deletion of Masers in science fiction[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Masers in science fiction has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non notable list article that is a violation of WP:POPCULTURE.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. ZXCVBNM (TALK) 22:32, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of Masers in science fiction for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Masers in science fiction 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/Masers in science fiction 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. ZXCVBNM (TALK) 03:36, 16 September 2017 (UTC)


You may or may not answer this but I would like to know why you temporarily blocked In particularly what did he advertise RmelCantrell1 Colored (talk) 03:43, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

He repeatedly recreated article on the band RND Officially and its member Romel Cantrell (Romel Joseph-Maurice Colvard). Both are hardly notable, and Romel Cantrell matches username, hence the block. Materialscientist (talk) 05:07, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

In reply to your request[edit]

"Information icon Hello, I'm Materialscientist. I noticed that you made a change to an article, 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. Materialscientist (talk) 10:44, 4 September 2017 (UTC)"

Im sorry I do not recall editing any pages or information on wikipedia. If only you were to remind me of this fallacy it might help to clear the air. I understand multiple IP(s) maybe causing this error but I couldnt find a link to the article you may/might be referring to.

DreamWorks Animation SKG[edit]

Hello. Regarding this page, DreamWorks Animation SKG, I noticed that you warned an Anonymous IP editor a few times [5], [6], [7]. Well, the IP has shifted to a new IP [8], [9] for 22 edits and still going strong like the energizer bunny. I agree this really needs to stop. I am going to change it back to a redirect, but I expect the IP to revert and continue. ----Steve Quinn (talk) 04:38, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

The IP reverted your edit [10]. This person seems to know enough not to "undo" or explicitly revert. Anyway, I already requested page protection [11] - so if you want to wait for that it could end the problem for the time being. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 05:20, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

I don't have the slightest idea what your message is about: what it refers to, which changes to which text I supposedly have made, not even whom I'm writing this to. I'm not into editing Wikipedia pages, at least not conciously.

Please I need you help[edit]

@Materialscientist: I know you don't know me but I really need your help. I am a dynamic IP user (my IP address constantly changes for some reason) and have been editing Wikipedia for four years now. Here are some IP addresses that I have used in the past to point out that I am a genuine IP user that is here to make constructive edits.

I have noticed you are a very active, reputable and respected user on Wikipedia so I thought I would ask you for help. I have also seen users ask you for help in the past so I thought I should ask. Face-smile.svg

My Issue: My edits to Losar have been reverted by another administrator who has claimed the sources are not verifiable, I understand that but I'm not sure why sources such as books are being removed or little details such as "Asian festival" which changes the colour of the template are being removed. I opened a discussion at the Administrators' Noticeboard to ask for help but unfortunately nothing happened there, sadly I was assumed to be a notorious IP hopper. :( I explained myself but that didn't lead to anything. Instead I found out later that Drmies (talk · contribs), who initially replied, protected the page without discussing the matter any further. I am truly hurt by this because out of all the times I have come to the Noticeboard for help I have been helped. I wanted help in solving the dispute but that did not happen.

You will see that I reverted edits made by Neutrality (talk · contribs) but I stopped after realising that it was edit warring and decided to open a discussion at the Administrators' Noticeboard instead. Even after doing that I didn't get the response I was hoping for, which was to clarify the removal of sources and hopefully reach a consensus on the issue.

I honestly don't know what to do when two administrators appear to not really care. It's really sad because I have been editing Wikipedia for four years now and have always edited constructively. I don't know why I even bother trying to engage in discussions, or edit Wikipedia for that matter, when I'm constantly scrutinized for being an IP user. It has happened so many times but this time it seemed a little too much. I thought the Noticeboard was there to help solve issues. I have never done this before so I sincerely ask you to please help me, I feel like you're the only one that will be willing to help. ( (talk) 12:20, 22 September 2017 (UTC))

Anon, the user who reverted you is an exceptionally experienced and communicative editor, and I'm sure they'd be willing to discuss the changes further on the article's talk page, which is where users who disagree on content are generally expected to go to reach a consensus on proposed changes. At least some of the content you added does appear to have been sourced to a website that is no longer working, and from an archived version, does not appear to have been the most reliable of sources to begin with. As a general rule, published sources like books are to be preferred over things like generic websites, and you would probably have better luck adding the content if you find some more solid citations for it. GMGtalk 12:28, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
@GreenMeansGo: Thank you, yes I understand but I'm not sure why some books were removed as sources. Their revision shows that they removed some sources that were books in addition to technical changes like "Asian festival" that categorizes the page by colour. For example, this source has been removed:
  • Ligeti, Louis (1984). Tibetan and Buddhist Studies: Commemorating the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Alexander Csoma De Koros, Volume 2. University of California Press. p. 344. ISBN 9789630535731. 
I am confused as to why this is all being removed. I have messaged them about the issue but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to add new sources in if the page is protected. ( (talk) 12:33, 22 September 2017 (UTC))
Probably the best way forward here is go to go the talk page, and take things a bit at a time, rather than trying to discuss almost 10,000 bytes worth of changes all in one big chunk. You can use {{request edit}} there, and provide a source and specific changes you would like made, and an editor with access to the article can review it and implement the changes or offer feedback on why they might not be appropriate or how the suggestion might be improved. GMGtalk 12:46, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
Right, I understand what you're saying. Thanks so much for your help GreenMeansGo (talk · contribs), I appreciate it. Face-smile.svg ( (talk) 13:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC))

Hello, I would like to say that I am sorry for what I did, but I hope that if you accept my point of view and have a constructive opinion or criticism, as you see, this article needs radical modifications to suit the article of other countries in Wikipedia and make this article full of facts and information based on facts that enrich The mind of the reader and develop his thought about that article and pleased to talk to you and also wish that if we become friends in the near future we have a link knowledge of Wikipedia and "opinion and opinion of the other" and thank you very much.
