May 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Blackguard SF. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Arizona Diamondbacks without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Blackguard 23:21, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

I think I made a mistake on that one, sorry. Megacheez 03:05, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Number sign[edit]

I have changed "#" back to "number" in List of National Football League retired numbers. It appears that you have been inserting "#" in place of "number" or "No." in many NFL-related articles. This appears to me to be contrary to MOS:NUMBERSIGN. It may be that there is some sports-specific standard that overrides this general style rule; if so, please let me know. Thank you so much for contributing to Wikipedia in our joint effort to make this online encyclopedia a great place to go for information. Cheers! YBG (talk) 05:32, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

@YBG: Is there anyway to mass revert the edits? He's done it on so many pages that reverting all of them manually isn't the best way to handle it. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 06:16, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure how one would go about that, though I'm sure there would be a way. YBG (talk) 18:37, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
I have also reverted some pages manually, as there have been intermediate edits on some of these pages since then. Zzyzx11 (talk) 10:49, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of baseball parks in Cleveland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page FirstEnergy Stadium. 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.

Please use edit summaries[edit]

Information icon Hi there! Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! UW Dawgs (talk) 19:47, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

September 2015[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Rogers Centre, disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. See MOS:NUM Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 13:58, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

  • I also thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia, though I too have the same concern. Your recent edit to Ricoh Coliseum did not conform to the Manual of Style. Two editors have now cautioned you about the exact same issue. I strongly suggest you take a moment to read the Manual of Style. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 13:40, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Please stop making changes to number styles in violation of MOS:NUM. You are merely making a mess of dozens of pages that other editors will now have to clean up. Please stop. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 04:24, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Manual of style[edit]

Thank you for doing a lot of grunt editing. Much of it has been helpful -- for example, adding spaces where they are required. But a lot of your edits are violating MOS:NUM, which explains how numbers should be formatted in Wikipedia. Please take the time to read this carefully. Personal taste is different, and so organizations like WP with many contributors adopt stylesheets to preserve a common look. Please, please, please, PLEASE take the time to read and understand our Manual of Style. If you will do this, your contributions to wikipedia will be greatly appreciated by many people. But when you go against our established style guidelines, you are not improving this encyclopedia, you are actually making it worse, and wasting your time and the time of others who have to clean up after you. My personal preferences do not always align with what the MOS says, but I try to follow the MOS in what I edit, and I try to change things only when they are clearly violating the MOS. (And if I really didn't like the MOS, then I would start a discussion someplace to change it.) There are some things where the MOS gives two alternatives -- for example, we are required to use one, two, ... nine, but are allowed to use either 11 or eleven and so forth. In those cases where the MOS allows two alternatives, you would better use your capabilities if you would refrain from changing what other editors have already used unless there is a clear case of making a given article internally consistent -- i.e., in one article with eleven, 12 and ninety-nine, you would change 12 to twelve, but in another article with 11, twelve and 99, you would change twelve to 12.

It is my earnest hope that you would use your energy and talent to help make WP closer to conforming to the MOS, not making it worse.

You have so much to offer WP. Please use your energy and talent to make WP better. YBG (talk) 05:45, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Stop icon
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for refusal to communicate despite repeated requests; refusal to stop editing despite repeated requests. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

Please note to any admin (or anyone else) who comes by here to respond to any potential unblock requests. This block may be lifted at any time by any administrator so long as Megacheez agrees to stop making the rapid MOS-violating edits he's been warned about above, AND agrees to discuss the matter with others. Once he starts communicating, and agrees to stop the problem, this block may be lifted. --Jayron32 16:12, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Request reason:

I really got carried away, so I will never make anymore disruptive edits, what I intend to do differently is proofread and communicate often. Also, I want to know how the communication thing works. And I apologize for any wrongdoing. Besides, I just launched my account 5 months ago.

Decline reason:

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Comment: This as good news; as I have said above, I believe that you have much to offer to help us build a great encyclopedia. Please note that the above comment says "AND agrees to discuss the matter with others". To me that means that you will agree to respond (and do so politely) when others initiate discussions on your talk page or on article talk pages. I'll let @Jayron32: chime in case the intent was something different than my interpretation. YBG (talk) 04:37, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Megacheez, I find the above comment unsatisfactory, as it is far too curt to be useful in helping us understand that you recognize what the problem was. Can you explain, in some detail 1) why you did what you were doing 2) what you intend to do differently going forward and 3) that you recognize and understand the importance of returning communication with others if you wish to continue to work here? The main issue is a total lack of communication on your part, and right now, in all the time you've spent on Wikipedia, we've only got 7 words of communication from you, the 7 above in the unblock request. I'd like to see some further assurances that you're capable and willing to communicate with others and advocate for yourself, both so we can understand you, and so that we know you're willing to take input from others and change if others note problems. --Jayron32 13:45, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Note: Megacheez has amended their unblock statement so it is now 18 words, after I initially made the above comments, which is 18 more words than they have ever attempted to use at Wikipedia when communicating with other editors. However, the additional 11 words does not adequately solve the problem. A lengthy explanation as I outlined above is what is needed in light of the lack of communication that lead to the block. No thought has been given yet to explaining himself. --Jayron32 06:47, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Megacheez: With regard to your statement

"What I did was unknowingly, so I will never make anymore disruptive edits, what I intend to do differently is proofread and communicate often. Also, I want to know how the communication thing works"

here are a few comments:

  • Starting at the end of your comment, you say you want to understand better how communication on WP works. Ideally, the people who post on your talk page will assume good faith and reach out to you politely. If they do, then respond in the same way. But even if they don't, your best response to them is to rise above it all and assume they have the good faith that they failed to assume you had. Assume the other person is doing their best to make WP a better encyclopedia. So whether someone speaks politely or impolitely, you should respond politely. If you don't think you can respond politely, then take a wikibreak from all editing for a while until you feel you can respond politely.
  • But what do you say when you do respond? If you understand their point and see their point, tell them so and thank them for helping you. If you don't understand or don't agree with their point, then ask them to please help you understand by explaining more. And don't be slow to look up WP policies. If you don't know what the policies are, then ask. If no one responds to you, then put {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will drop by and help.
  • With regard to your first statement, you say it was unknowing. I get this for your first big batch of edits, but I'm trying to understand how this can be for the subsequent edits, which occurred after others had already tried to reach out to you by posting on your talk page. I am not doubting that it was unknowing; in fact, I can readily guess two or three different ways in which your subsequent edits would have been unknowing. But it would help me if you would actually tell me in your own words how it was unknowing.

So, in this last bullet, I'm giving you a chance to practice communicating with me. Your answer should follow below, on a new line after my signature. Start with an initial colon (:) to indent your comment, and don't forget to sign your answer with four tildes (~~~~). There are more hints on how to use talk pages at WP:TP. I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Cheers!! YBG (talk) 04:45, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello, YBG how are you?
Megacheez 23:16, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm fine, and I'm here, though I've been off-wiki for a few days and expect that the next few days will not allow me much wiki time.
(Notice how I've added colons to your signature line to make it correctly formatted. Then each of my lines of response began with two colons to provide additional indenting. Your response to me should consist of one or more lines, each indented with three colons. This is the convention used to carry on discussions on talk pages. If the indents get too unwieldy, one or the other us will include {{outdent}} on a separate line and then begin the stair-step indenting all over again.
I hope this helps to begin to explain how the communication process works on talk pages. YBG (talk) 00:14, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

────────── Thanx!!! Megacheez 02:45, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

OK, you seem to get the hang of back-and-forth and indenting and so forth (except you really didn't need to {{outdent}} quite so soon; usually it isn't done until the indenting is several levels deep).
I have one comment and one request. The comment is that I would like to discourage you from trying to change your username. My reason is that I'm hoping that your username and edit history can become a wonderful example of how a problematic editor can be engaged and then be transformed into a valuable WP contributor.
The request is with regard to your continued problematic editing after people had tried to communicate with you. I'd still like to understand what was going on in your head and how this was "unknowing" as you have said. For reference, you can refer to the chronology listed at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard § IncidentArchive900#User:Megacheez. Thanks! YBG (talk) 03:52, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

YBG, I think I got carried away when I started almost 5 months ago and I apologize for any wrongdoing that I caused. Megacheez 02:25, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your edits[edit]

Thank you so much for your patience with WP while you were blocked, and your willingness to jump right in and start editing constructively. It is much appreciated.

I have two relatively minor comments:

  • I added {{cn}} to your addition to the Oakland Athletics article.
    I think it is great to add information based on your personal knowledge even without a reference -- especially if it is well-known by people familiar with the subject. With or without the {{cn}}, unreferenced material is subject to being deleted. But if you are careful to always add the {{cn}}, you are acknowledging the fact that a reference is needed. This notifies other editors, making it more likely that someone will add a reference.
  • I notice that in several places (e.g., American Airlines Center, Toyota Center, Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame, Anaheim GardenWalk, AT&T Stadium), you have changed an article from saying something like "event-E is scheduled for date-D" to something like "event-E happened on date-D" when the date has passed.
    Please only do this when you have personal knowledge that the event occurred or you have verified it in a reliable source. (In this latter case, why not add the reference?) Otherwise it might be better to simply change it from "is scheduled for" to "was scheduled for" without actually saying tat it occurred. I say this because of a personal experience I had several decades ago -- I wrote an article about an event scheduled to occur after the paper was put to bed but before it was scheduled to appear. Well, what do you know, the event got cancelled -- and I was very, very embarrassed.

Just some friendly suggestions for you to take into consideration as you continue editing. Thank you for showing that Jayron32 made a good decision! Happy editing! YBG (talk) 03:35, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

I appreciate that. Megacheez 03:47, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

One more thing: It might be good to go up and delete your {{retired}} above. I'd do it myself, but it is generally considered bad form to edit someone else's comments on talk pages. But the template page says that if you resume editing (1) you should promptly remove it but (2) any other editor can also remove it. YBG (talk) 03:56, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanx, YBG

Megacheez 03:59, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

I just discovered another option for {{dated info}}. You can even put this in articles ahead of time with the appropriate date on which it should become effective. YBG (talk) 05:59, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
That would be interesting. Megacheez 23:48, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

I started a conversation about the concert section at talk:Tampa Stadium, but I forgot to ping you so I guess you didn't see it. I don't think the table of concerts is a good addition. With rare exceptions (like the famous and infamous pair of Led Zeppelin shows, for example), concerts are not particularly notable events at a stadium, but the table you've created is already taking up a disproportionally huge part of the article. And it's going to be very difficult to make the list complete, with good sources. I grew up within a mile of Tampa Stadium and I can tell you that you're still missing some concerts, but I don't know the exact dates and attendance, etc. You haven't cited sources for most of the info you've included, so I have no idea if the facts are accurate or not.

Anyway, I know you've put a lot of work into that table, but to be honest, I think the original text that listed some of the most prominent shows and performers in paragraph form is better. Zeng8r (talk) 14:14, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

ADDENDUM: Looking over your talk page, I see that you've been making the same sorts of additions to many venue articles. Please look over WP:RELIABLE for details on how to identify and cite sources. Zeng8r (talk) 14:16, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

There are very many concert tour pages that do not exist. Megacheez (talk) 01:00, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

That doesn't have anything to do with adding huge concert tables to many sports venue articles across Wikipedia. Again, I appreciate that you're trying to help, but I don't think your additions are a good idea. As I've said and others have said, there are two big problems with these tables: 1) They have little or no citations. (See WP:CITE for guidelines) and 2) At least on Tampa Stadium, the table takes up an enormous amount of space in proportion to its importance. (See WP:UNDUE for guidelines.)
If these problems are not fixed, the table at Tampa Stadium is going to have to be removed, and possibly on other articles as well. Zeng8r (talk) 14:00, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Houston Astros retired numbers[edit]

A discussion point was raised at Talk:Houston Astros#Retired numbers regarding the images of retired numbers, which seem to impart no information over and above a simple text table and appear to be purely decorative. Though I intended to replace the images with a table, I waited two months to see if there were any objections, but as no objections were forthcoming, I went ahead and made the edit. Then today you reverted that edit, saying "Leave the retired numbers alone". Did you not see the talk page discussion and do you have a better rationale for keeping those images other than "leave them alone"? Thanks. --Jameboy (talk) 19:51, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Why do that? Megacheez (talk) 01:34, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Why do what? --Jameboy (talk) 15:25, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Why replace the images with a table? Megacheez (talk) 02:22, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

The images are purely decorative and don't convey any information that cannot be represented in a table. The text in the table is searchable and the columns can be made sortable. Images have their place in articles for sure, e.g. to show what a person or thing looks like, or to help visualise information better (icons etc.) but I just don't see that here. --Jameboy (talk) 15:44, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Concert sections[edit]

Please make sure you read WP:UNDUE and WP:FANCRUFT. Many of the concert sections you have been adding violate both of these. An article on an arena or stadium is about the facility, not the details of every event that has ever occurred in the facility. The concerts section should largely be prose and mention some of the most prominent concerts that have been held there and when. Attendance and revenue for the facility can be mentioned if they are significant or otherwise unusual. The concerts section you added as Chesapeake Energy Arena, for instance, accounted for almost half the entire article. I would highly recommend holding off on adding these kinds of tables to arena and stadium articles because they're more than likely to be removed eventually, if not right away. Again, making mention of several concerts is certainly appropriate and welcome; details about them, however, are not. --JonRidinger (talk) 20:50, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

They all need seperate pages. Megacheez (talk) 21:13, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

Even so, that doesn't mean the section in the article for the arena should have all the details. We certainly don't include the game stats for every NBA or NHL game at an arena (even though those are often a major American arena's primary tenant or tenants), so why should we include all the statistics for every concert? --JonRidinger (talk) 00:27, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Rod Thorn / HOF[edit]

If you're keen to update NBA team articles with 2018 inductees such as Rod Thorn, you might wish to also update the personal articles as well. The content you're adding to team articles seems uncited in both contexts. UW Dawgs (talk) 15:50, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Rod Thorn was just announced as one of this year's inductees as a contributor. Megacheez (talk) 16:34, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Color in table headers[edit]

I see you adding a lot of color to table headers, e.g. List of Milwaukee Brewers managers. I'm curious as to what value you think this adds. In this case the dark blue obscures the black sort icons, so for clarity I think it would be better just to use the default light gray table header. Would be interested to know your thoughts. --Jameboy (talk) 09:43, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Just to be clear, this is a genuine enquiry and not a criticism of your editing! You obviously do a lot of good work on here. I don't do much with color or tables so I'm not overly familiar with the standards but am trying to learn (or re-learn). My one and only Featured List was promoted 10 years ago so I'm probably a bit rusty and I appreciate things may have moved on since then. Cheers. --Jameboy (talk) 10:11, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

I appreciate that. Megacheez (talk) 02:29, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
