Red links[edit]

I have reverted your edit to the Prism dab page. Red links are not necessarily a bad thing. If the term may become an article in the future it is useful to leave the link in. It also affects statistics pages such as WP:Most wanted articles. Thanks, SpinningSpark 19:42, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Please don't create pages with TBA. If you want to write an article, please write it and then post it. There is no deadline... — This, that, and the other (talk) 04:05, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

Greetings, MikeyMouse10. Please note this English-language Wikipedia serves the entire English-speaking world, and that American English is only one variety which is neither more nor less correct than other varieties. Per WP:ENGVAR, we do not "correct" spellings and usages simply because they do not accord with whatever which version of English we happen to speak or prefer. Nor do we go through and change articles from one to another version of English. Moreover, when contributing to an article written in any particular variant of English, that is the variant that we continue to use in that article. Thank you for understanding. —Scheinwerfermann T·C21:34, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

January 2012[edit]

In a recent edit to the page J. R. R. Tolkien, you changed one or more words or styles from one national variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. GimliDotNet (talk) 18:50, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, you also did the same thing here and here, "correcting" some spellings that were already correct, and this edit introduced quite a few errors.

I see you've made a lot of good corrections to other articles - thanks for that! But please make sure that you're not 'correcting' something that's already fine. --GenericBob (talk) 10:31, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

...and again [1] here ("labelled") and here ("skilful"). Both of these are standard British spellings - your other edits are welcome, but unless you are editing an article that is specifically about a US subject, please do not 'correct' it to US English. --GenericBob (talk) 13:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
...and again here. In an article about British and Australian sport, please respect the British/Australian spellings. I realise you're trying to improve articles, but you seem to be adding almost as many errors as you correct - please be more careful in your edits. --GenericBob (talk) 01:45, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Leonardo da Vinci[edit]

I noticed that you changed a word, which was in the context of a quotation. It is better not to change anything that is a direct quotation, even if the grammar appears poor, or there seems to be an error. You need to find the quotation first, and discover whether the original writer made the error (which should be maintained) or the person transcribing the quote made the error.

In this case there was no error at all. The quote used the words "....painting, sculpture and architecture.....". You changed the word "sculpture" to "sculptures".

What the three words refer to is 1. the art of painting, 2. the art of sculpture 3. the art of architecture. To say that Leonardo "knew about sculptures" does not mean the same thing as to say that Leonardo "knew about sculpture".

Orbis Pictus (film)[edit]

Nope, this movie is not related to the book of the same name. The film is an original story about a 16 year old girl who searches for her mother after being released from institution, in which she was raised from early childhood.

Foreign language edits[edit]

If you cannot read or write Persian, please refrain from such edits. Thanks Americophile 08:19, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Likewise, if you don't speak Danish, probably a good idea not to 'correct' the name of a Danish film - especially when there's a cite there confirming "Andersens" as correct. --GenericBob (talk) 09:45, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Editor MikeyMouse10 is introducing errors[edit]

In the following edit by MikeyMouse10 today 6 Apr 2012, "Laon and Cythna" is wrongly changed to "Laon and Cynthia"; "create" is wrongly changed to "creates"; and most insidiously zh:珀西·比希·雪莱 is wrongly changed to zh:珀西•比希•雪莱. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Percy_Bysshe_Shelley&diff=485913993&oldid=485686572

The same bad edit to the Chinese is made two minutes earlier at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Oliver_Goldsmith&curid=58038&diff=485913583&oldid=483376570

Two minutes earlier, benign grammar-checker edits are made at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Shakalaka_Boom_Boom&diff=prev&oldid=485913136

I haven't spent enough time looking at this editor's edits to know if it's an incompetent robot or a sly vandal. If the editor continues with changes such as the above, I will enter a Wikipedia:Blockuser request with the administrators at either

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents
or
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism

Seanwal111111 (talk) 22:43, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't think it's a pure bot. Looking at this edit, there are three changes. The first is a legitimate change to wording that appears to have been made by a human, the second is a mistaken "correction" of 'ejecta' to 'eject', and the third is a change to foreign-alphabet content.
My best guess is that Mikey is a human who is pasting article content into a word-processor, running a spell/grammar checker on the content, and accepting its recommendations without sufficient care before pasting it back into WP. The foreign-alphabet issues might be explained by C&Ping between systems that aren't using quite the same character sets.
But whatever the case, it's annoying for other editors. It fixes some obvious errors in article content but introduces new ones that are harder to spot; several people have mentioned this to him but he hasn't bothered to respond. If he continues in this way, I will second your block request. --GenericBob (talk) 01:24, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

PLEASE STOP breaking foreign-language links[edit]

In this edit you broke four foreign-language links, as well as capitalising a word that shouldn't be capitalised. You have been asked repeatedly to stop editing foreign-language links and you've already been blocked for it once.

If you're having some sort of technical difficulty with editing, there are plenty of editors who'd be glad to help sort it out. But if you keep on breaking links without making any attempt to engage with other editors, you'll get yourself blocked again. --GenericBob (talk) 08:25, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for abuse of editing privileges. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 21:38, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
  • This block is intended to get your attention, as you appear to be repeatedly making the same mistakes. And when people have explained them to you and asked you to stop, you have not replied but have carried on regardless. If you respond here and convince us that you understand the errors and will stop them, I'll be happy to unblock you (or for someone else to). -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 21:41, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for ongoing disruption. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:34, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Hi. I'm sorry to have to block you like this, but you are repeating the same mistakes over and over again, and you are not paying attention to the numerous attempts to explain the problems to you. This block is not punitive, but is designed simply to stop you carrying on making these damaging edits. And it is indefinite, not infinite - once you can convince a reviewing admin that you understand the errors you have been making, and will stop them, you can be unblocked. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:40, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I have also noticed that you are making lots of punctuation changes, and it looks like you are doing them by rote rather than paying attention to the flow of the individual sentences and paragraphs that you are changing - and your changes are not always good. For example, here you changed "The other two genera, cirrocumulus and cirrostratus, are also high clouds" to "The other two genera, cirrocumulus and cirrostratus are also high clouds" by removing the second comma. But the second comma was appropriate, as the "cirrocumulus and cirrostratus" part is a parenthetical clause, and you should not have removed it. English spelling, grammar and punctuation are not things that can be semi-automated the way you are doing it, and to do the kind of work you are attempting really requires the ability to judge things on a one-by-one basis. At this time, I don't think you have that ability. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 08:53, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

I'm sorry for disrupting your wiki by not ignoring punctuations, I'll make small edits instead of big please? MikeyMouse10 (talk) 1:47 pm, Today (UTC−4)

Decline reason:

I am declining your unblock request because it does not address the reason for your block, or because it is inadequate for other reasons. To be unblocked, you must convince the reviewing administrator(s) that
  • the block is not necessary to prevent damage or disruption to Wikipedia, or
  • the block is no longer necessary because you
    1. understand what you have been blocked for,
    2. will not continue to cause damage or disruption, and
    3. will make useful contributions instead.
Please read the guide to appealing blocks for more information. TNXMan 17:52, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first and 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.

  • I'm sorry if my comment about punctuation made you think that was the only problem. In fact, it's a relatively minor problem that I only spotted after I imposed the block. The main problems are those highlighted all over this talk page. You need to read all of the warnings (which you have apparently been ignoring), make it clear to us that you understand all of the problems, and explain what steps you will take to make sure you do not repeat them. (And personally, I'd like to hear some sort of pledge that when you are given warnings in future, you will actually respond to them.) -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 18:02, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Request reason:

I’m sorry I disrupted Wikipedia by breaking foreign language links and making punctuation changes. I believe both are unnecessary to risk damaging the wiki. I understand if you blocked me indefinitely for ignoring all the warnings. I pledge not to repeat these errors and I’ll make small edits instead of big with good intentions. The truth is that I found all of these spellings that I've been changing from Microsoft Word 2010 and I promise not to use that source ever again. MikeyMouse10 (talk) 18:14, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Accept reason:

Editor has promised to NEVER use a Word processor for spelling corrections, and will verify every single edit and its potential damage before saving. The editor also recognizes that foreign spellings and weblinks should NOT be spellchecked (talk→ BWilkins ←track) 10:32, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.
  • Well, first, nobody is doubting your good intentions. We just want you to listen and communicate when people draw your attention to problems, and that way you'll get better as and editor and Wikipedia will get better as a result. Anyway, I have a few conditions to suggest, and if you accept them, I'll be happy to unblock you. But before that, I'd just like to ask you one thing - out of interest and to help me understand what's been happening, and possibly to adjust the way I set out the conditions. How do you find all of these spellings that you have been changing? Are you using some sort of automated tool, or do you just come across them when you're looking at articles? -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 19:04, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Hmm, OK, just a follow-up question (and it's better to just put your answer below here, rather than adding to the unblock request above). This is only for my education, because I don't really understand what you mean - were you copying article text into Word 2010, spell-checking it, and then copying it back? -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 19:43, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I literally copied the article text into Word 2010, spell-checked it, and then copied it back. -- MikeyMouse10 (talk) 19:54, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
    Ah, right, that explains it all. That's something that you should never do (with any word processor), because word processors will often make other changes that you don't know about, especially with special characters like foreign-language ones - but you've already discovered that now! It's OK to copy text into a word processor to spell-check, but when you find errors that need correcting, you should go back to the Wikipedia edit window and fix them manually. Or you could use a browser like Firefox, which does spellchecking in edit windows - just edit a section, and you should see spelling errors underlined. Anyway, here's a few tips...
    • Never correct a spelling just on the say-so of the spell checker - only do so if you're confident yourself that it is wrong, based on your own knowledge. If in doubt, just leave it.
    • Do not make a change if it is switching from one version of English to another, eg American to British - spell checkers can be set to accept either, but they'll usually show the other as incorrect.
    • Never change spelling, punctuation, or grammar inside a quotation - we must quote what the author actually wrote, even if contains errors.
    • Never change the spelling in a link of any kind - a wikilink, an interwiki link, or an external URL, because that will break the link. (You can change a wikilink if you're sure it's pointing to the wrong article, but not just because you think the spelling is wrong).
    • Never change anything that's in a foreign language.
    I think you know all those now, so just say if you're happy with those restrictions and I'll unblock you. -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 20:27, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
  • After you've copied your changed text back into the Wikipedia edit box, you need to click on the button labelled "Show changes". That button is near the "Save page" button you've been clicking on. On clicking "Show changes", Wikipedia will present the text to you on screen that looks like the following, which is called a "Diff" screen (where Diff is short for differences): http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=William_Shakespeare&diff=prev&oldid=488827269 . On the Diff screen, you need to compare the left and right sides in the places where the text is highlighted as having differences, and study each of your edits in this context to make sure it's correct, make sure it's what you intended. If it's all correct, you click on "Save page", and if it's not all correct you edit it to make it correct.
Your word processor is automatically changing the format of some foreign character strings, which can be seen for example in the diff screen in this example: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=William_Shakespeare&diff=prev&oldid=488827269 . Here's how to largely avoid that problem: In the Wikipedia edit box, the foreign character stuff largely appears at the last few lines of the text. So don't copy those last few lines into the word processsor. But don't forget that they need to be present in your final edition before you click "Save page". And don't forget to be on the watchout for all foreign character problems when you're looking at the "Diff" of your work. And don't forget to always do a "Diff".
I would like to repeat that you should always review your changes on "Show changes" before clicking "Save page". It's a great way to catch errors.
GenericBob said above on 7 April 2012: "The foreign-alphabet issues might be explained by C&Ping between systems that aren't using quite the same character sets." It looks like MikeyMouse10 did not understand what GenericBob was saying there. MikeyMouse10 makes a bigger mistake when he ignores what he doesn't understand when people are talking to him about his mistakes. Seanwal111111 (talk) 21:03, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Re "After you've copied your changed text back into the Wikipedia edit box, you need to click on the button labelled "Show changes"". My condition for unblocking is actually simpler and stricter than that - MikeyMouse10 should not copy articles to a word processor and back again at all. (But yes, using the 'Show preview' and 'Show changes' buttons is something that should still be done before saving changes.) -- Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 21:15, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. Unfortunately spellcheckers just aren't reliable enough - you can use it as a first step to find things that might be errors, but you should only accept its corrections if you understand for yourself why the new version is better than the old version. I know that's going to slow you down a lot, but it will really improve the value of the work you do on Wikipedia. --GenericBob (talk) 22:23, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Just a little example of spell checking getting things in a mess. I had to do a 'stop print' on something when I noticed that it said 'so-and-so may now do such-and-such.' I contacted the writer and asked if this was right. It wasn't. They were actually forbidden to to it. Should have been 'so-and-so may not do such-and-such'. Look closely. Change of one letter reverses the meaning of the sentence. Spell checkers are for the worst mistakes, but they can't get everything. And there's the problem of varieties of English. I have it the other way - mine checks for Brit English and I have to know which are typos and which are genoowine Americanisms. I support unblocking on Boing's terms, and in the hope that Mikey will learn the variety spellings quickly (but thoroughly). In the meantime, look for things like case and tense mismatches. Plenty of those around - and plenty of sentences with missing words, or that should be connected by comma or semi-colon to the sentence preceding. And when you get messages, ASK someone what's wrong - don't just carry on happily. Good luck, and believe me, we do need text checking and welcome those prepared to do it. The right way, that is.... 8-) Peridon (talk) 19:31, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Ultimate Spider-Man (TV series)[edit]

Hi. Thanks for adding the bit of info to the Ultimate Spider-Man (TV series) article. However, the edit had to be reverted, because Wikipedia cannot accept unsourced material or original research. Wikipedia requires that all material added to articles be accompanied by reliable, verifiable sources explicitly cited in the text in the form of an inline citation, which you can learn to make here. If you can cite the episode in question, then please feel free to re-add the info. If you want to use the episode citation template in order to give all the info about the episode, it's:

<ref>{{cite episode|title=|series=Ultimate Spider-Man|network=Disney XD|season=1|number=|airdate=}}</ref>

I provided the series, network and season number to make it easier for you. The episode name goes in "title", the episode number goes in "number" and the airdate is self-explantory. If you need help learning how to use it, you can refer to Template:Cite episode, or just let me know by leaving a message for me in a new section at the bottom of my talk page. Thanks. :-) Nightscream (talk) 01:35, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Hello, this edit made one useful change – the change from "well known" to "well-known" – but the other change, where you replaced "occupied Denmark" with "occupy Denmark", turned the text into nonsense. The term "occupied Denmark" refers to Denmark under Nazi rule, not the occupy movement. Are you using an automated or semi-automated grammar checker to make these edits? Regardless, please be more careful, as you have been told many, many times before on this talk page. Graham87 05:26, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Mikey, we've asked you repeatedly, and yet you keep doing things like breaking foreign-language links and 'correcting' material that was already correct (the spelling is right there in the URL). I don't like requesting a block - I believe you're trying to improve Wikipedia - but since you're not paying any attention to all the editors who've asked you to change your habits, I don't know any other way to get through. --GenericBob (talk) 10:53, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Wiki default formatting[edit]

I just noticed that you were making lots of gnomish edits to various articles, several of them on my watchlist. The type of edit you made here breaks the default formatting here. It's not a big deal, except for someone like me whose eyesight isn't as good as it used to be, but you don't need to do it. There are better things to do. The default standard (if you hit the "new section" tab) is for there to be space on each side of a heading and a blank line below it. I thought you might like to know that. I'd appreciate it if you just left those alone, because they make it easier for people like me to edit. It makes no difference in the actual appearance of the article, but when editing it makes a visual difference. Thanks. -- Brangifer (talk) 14:24, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
