Disambiguation link notification for January 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kevin Anderson (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.

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. You appear to be engaged in an edit war with one or more editors according to your reverts at 2013–14 Liverpool F.C. season. Although repeatedly reverting or undoing another editor's contributions may seem necessary to protect your preferred version of a page, on Wikipedia this is usually seen as obstructing the normal editing process, and often creates animosity between editors. Instead of edit warring, please try to reach a consensus on the talk page.

If editors continue to revert to their preferred version they are likely to be blocked from editing. This isn't done to punish an editor, but to prevent the disruption caused by edit warring. In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. Thank you. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 17:55, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Okay. That's fine. Please unlock the page now. MillsyOnWiki (talk) 16:40, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Starting XI[edit]

Please stop adding starting XI. There has been consensus not to add these at WT:FOOTY and your actions block the whole 2013–14 Liverpool F.C. season page. If you feel like it should be there fell free to join discussion on WT:FOOTY or article talkpage instead of just adding content not belonging on that page. QED237 (talk) 21:31, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

There has been discussions on the article talkpage and consensus reached on WT:FOOTY here,here, here, here and know here (I can find much more examples) QED237 (talk) 21:56, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

League Performance[edit]

Hello, On the current Liverpool F.C. season article, could you please use the Statto source given for updates, as we don't use original research and everything must be verifiable. Thanks, JMHamo (talk) 15:08, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I take your point, however we can see that the Statto source is incorrect. As a result, I shall change the source provided to BBC. MillsyOnWiki (talk) 15:32, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately the BBC source wont do because it does not provide a historic League Performance and we should avoid WP:RECENTISM
I'll leave it to you to change, but let's please not be so pedantic that we are willing to have incorrect information on the page in order to comply to the rules. MillsyOnWiki (talk) 15:32, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
This is an encyclopaedia, not a fan site. It would be preferable of you revert your own changes. Thanks, JMHamo (talk) 15:25, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Encyclopaedias contain correct information. MillsyOnWiki (talk) 15:32, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
The statto source is corrct and should be used. It lists the matches at the end of each matchday. QED237 (talk) 22:03, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
And also please stop editing against the given source before the page gets blocked again. You can also get blocked yourself for unsourced/disruptive edits for editing against the given source. QED237 (talk) 22:27, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
Apologies, Sonny Jim. MillsyOnWiki (talk) 16:52, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Your recent editing history at 2013–14 Liverpool F.C. season shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Mentoz86 (talk) 16:56, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

WP:ENGVAR[edit]

Regarding your last two edits to the article on Giuseppe Rossi, I suggest you have a read of WP:ENGVAR. Rossi was born in the United States, therefore his article has clear ties to that nation. For that reason, we should use American English in the article, and that includes spelling the word you and I know as "honours" without a U. – PeeJay 23:19, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
