September 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to September 11 attacks appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe this important core policy. Thank you. Tbhotch. Grammatically incorrect? Correct it! See terms and conditions. 05:44, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Inappropriate commentary in exit list comments[edit]

Adding "Exit "19" is actually in Mile 18 so 19 is incorrect." is not appropriate nor is it encyclopedic in tone. The better solution would be to provide the milepost measurements along Interstate 25 in New Mexico so that a reader can draw that conclusion for him/herself. If you will notice, I have rebuilt that exit list table using the {{jctint}} templates, which adds a mileage column. Look at U.S. Route 131, and you'll see that all of the exit numbers do not match up with the actual mileage, although they do match up with the signed mileposts. Remember too that some states round the exit numbers; exit 19 might be at MP 18.75. Imzadi 1979  20:39, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

December 2011[edit]

Your recent editing history at North Korea shows that you are in danger of breaking the three-revert rule, or that you may have already broken it. 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. Breaking the three-revert rule often leads to a block.

If you wish to avoid being blocked, instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. 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. You may still be blocked for edit warring even if you do not exceed the technical limit of the three-revert rule if your behavior indicates that you intend to continue to revert repeatedly.

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Chester Gillette, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Reprieve (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.

British vs American English spellings[edit]

Hey! I appreciate the enthusiasm trying to fix misspellings, but please keep in mind that sometimes they aren't wrong at all, but that the article is using British English spellings instead of American English. In British English, Defence is used, while Defense is used in American English. They are both considered correct. Hopefully that all made sense! Jeancey (talk) 06:36, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

February 2012[edit]

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Domestic violence‎. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Binksternet (talk) 19:02, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

And be careful when adding new info! At http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Federal_Bureau_of_Prisons&diff=479537121&oldid=477748944 you added something about high profile inmates, but the source doesn't say anything about that.

May 2012[edit]

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 Donna Summer, makes articles harder to read. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

November 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia!

About this edit keep in mind that even though the street address says "Smyrna, DE" the prison itself it outside of the city limits - Punch the address in a mapping program, compare to the city limits of Smyrna, and you will understand WhisperToMe (talk) 09:30, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Stephen Hawking[edit]

I've removed the 'Dr.' that you added to his name. See WP:HONORIFICS which says "Academic and professional titles (such as "Doctor" or "Professor") should not be used before (or after) the name in the initial sentence or in other uses of the person's name" and uses Hawking as an example.

January 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Lova Falk. I noticed that you made a change to an article, List of phobias, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Lova Falk talk 16:08, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

January 2015[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)

 

I noticed your recent edit to Pope Francis does not have an edit summary. 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! Elizium23 (talk) 21:11, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at List of phobias shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

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.

Please add some sources that cover this phobia in-depth. --NeilN talk to me 04:43, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Please don't delete posts on other editors' talk pages. Thank you. --NeilN talk to me 04:56, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
