Edit War on Lost: What They Died For[edit]

I had understood that Wikipedia discouraged edit wars, preferring editors to resolve with discussion. I am currently trying to find the Wikipedia policy in *untransmitted* spoilers. I personally can't see the justification at all for including this in an encyclopaedia. I don't think it's appropriate to call my edits vandalism or to threaten to blok me while you take part in an edit war. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.111.47.43 (talk) 13:54, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

I have asked on the Editor Assistance Requests page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.111.47.43 (talk) 14:07, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

I have added to Talk page on the advice of one of the Editors. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.111.47.43 (talk) 14:50, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Spaceinvasion logo.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Spaceinvasion logo.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 15:13, 30 August 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  ono  15:13, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Spaceinvasion logo.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Spaceinvasion logo.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  ono  15:13, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay, im sorry.[edit]

I just thougt the discussion page would be easier to navigate if I cleaned it up a bit.

Btw, Would you consider adding back the text that mentions Britney as the best-selling teenage artist?

Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.100.49.241 (talk) 23:55, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

I saw that you added back the text about Britney being the best-selling teenage recording artist in her discography article. I appreciate it!

Interview[edit]

Hi, I am a Wikipedian and researcher from Carnegie Mellon University, working with Professors Robert E. Kraut and Aniket Kittur. We’ve published many scholarly papers on Wikipedia and are partnering with the Wikimedia Foundation on several new projects.

I have been analyzing collaboration in Wikipedia, especially Collaborations of the Week/Month. My analysis of seven years of archival Wikipedia data shows that Collaborations of the Week/Month substantially increase the amount and nature of project members’ contributions, with long lasting effects. We would like to talk to Wikipedians to better understand the processes that that produce this behavior change.

We’ve identified you as a particularly good candidate to speak with because of your involvement with the WikiProject Video games' Collaborations, which is one of those we’ve been investigating. It would really help us if you would be willing to have a short talk with us, less than 30 minutes of your time. We can talk via skype or instant messenger or other means if you’d prefer. Do you have time at any point during this week to chat? If so, please leave a message on my talk page.

Thanks! (This my personal website)Haiyizhu (talk) 04:45, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

List of The Legend of Korra episode[edit]

I disagree with your decision to cut down the size of the summaries. The previous summaries are far more comparable to the summaries of Avatar: The Last Airbender (1 2 3).

On top of that, you can hardly compare Korra's list to one with 7 seasons, now can you? Brightgalrs (/braɪtˈɡæl.ərˌɛs/)[1] 21:49, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

I just wanted to say thank you for editing the post I made on the Holocaust page. I meant no disrespect, and the only reason I added that stuff was because my English teacher had us do an assignment that included adding random stuff to a wikipedia page on our subject for our term paper. Mine happened to be the Holocaust. She wanted us to see that anyone can edit a page and Wikipedia is not a reliable source. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

Speedy Deletion of Treet.TV[edit]

Hi there, I set up the article as a stub as it is no where near finished and I was posting it online as we were asked to publish what we have so far as a stub online for our assignment, I'm sure you have good reason for wanting it deletion but this is why I shall attempt to amend any problems.

Disambiguation link notification for May 9[edit]

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

Proposed deletion of SpaceInvasion[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article SpaceInvasion has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG. Lacks significant coverage from 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. The1337gamer (talk) 15:03, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of SpaceInvasion for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article SpaceInvasion 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/SpaceInvasion 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. The1337gamer (talk) 23:23, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

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.
