July 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Grayfell. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to 2017 Berkeley protests have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Grayfell (talk) 06:11, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Please do not add commentary or your own personal analysis to Wikipedia articles, as you did to The Young Turks. Doing so violates Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy and breaches the formal tone expected in an encyclopedia. Thank you. Shellwood (talk) 06:39, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Edit at Zara Larsson[edit]

Hey ParadiseDesertOasis8888! I reverted your edit at Zara Larsson because that particular section has been somewhat controversial in the past. If you wish to have it changed it is best to discuss the changes you want to make at the article's talk page first so that we can establish consensus. Thanks, Jith12 (talk) 13:53, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Portland Public Schools[edit]

Hi ParadiseDesertOasis8888,

I noticed you changed "Glencoe" to "Blencoe" on the article Portland Public Schools (Oregon). this district website, it seems to be written Glencoe. Where were you getting the source for it being Blencoe?

August 2017[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to change genres without discussion or sources, as you did at Praying (song), you may be blocked from editing. Ss112 09:37, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Casualties in Las Vegas[edit]

ParadiseDesertOasis8888, why did you change the number of casualties at 2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting from 59 to 58? The 58 number is from older articles. All of the most recent reporting says 59 people killed in the shooting. Adding the perpetrator's suicide makes 60 fatalities. Please don't change this again unless you have some more recent source saying the reported number of fatalities has been DECREASED by one. Thanks. --MelanieN (talk) 04:04, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

My mistake, I just heard the sheriff confirm 58 victims plus the perpetrator = 59. Sorry to bother you. --MelanieN (talk) 04:58, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
ParadiseDesertOasis8888 I, mostly, agree with MelanieN, BUT, if you change a figure, you should say why in your edit summary and it should be cited. (See WP: Verifiability)
So just changing the figure is not really acceptable unless the source has also been updated, or replaced with another one that supports the change.
Re your WP:good faith edit here to my update to Paradise, Nevada, note that I was deliberately vague about the exact number of injured because I was quite sure it would change, and it did, downwards. It is now 489, as sourced here. See Wikipedia:Verifiability not truth. Happy editing! Regards, 220 of Borg 05:09, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

October 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello. 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. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks! 220 of Borg 06:50, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Telephone (song). This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Binksternet (talk) 21:46, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Irma (name), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Irmin (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:22, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

Non-free image use[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload files. However, it appears that one or more of the files you have uploaded or added to a page, specifically Flags of cities of the United States, may fail our non-free policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted file of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 12:22, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

January 2018[edit]

Information icon Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that you recently added commentary to an article, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz. While Wikipedia welcomes editors' opinions on an article and how it could be changed, these comments are more appropriate for the article's accompanying talk page. If you post your comments there, other editors working on the same article will notice and respond to them, and your comments will not disrupt the flow of the article. However, keep in mind that even on the talk page of an article, you should limit your discussion to improving the article. Article talk pages are not the place to discuss opinions of the subject of articles, nor are such pages a forum. Thank you. 115.164.190.108 (talk) 14:21, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Big Town Hero[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Big Town Hero, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. reddogsix (talk) 16:59, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Sunnyvale Flag[edit]

You asked about the Sunnyvale flag. When the city's logo changed to the green and white circular logo, its flag changed accordingly. But I was unable to find any images of the new flag in action, sorry. JGriffithSV (talk) 07:42, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

File:Flag of the Village of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:18, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Category:Guests on Dr. Phil (talk show) has been nominated for discussion[edit]

Category:Guests on Dr. Phil (talk show), which you created, has been nominated for possible deletion, merging, or renaming. A discussion is taking place to see if it abides with the categorization guidelines. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page. Thank you. Geraldo Perez (talk) 02:49, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Please stop adding additional articles to this category while it is being considered for deletion. Please see in particular WP:NOTDEFINING. General Ization Talk 03:01, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Please do not bolden the word "stop" when this is a first-time offense. From Wikipedia:Civility: "Try not to get too intense. Passion can be misread as aggression, so take great care to avoid the appearance of being heavy-handed or bossy. Nobody likes to be bossed about by an editor who appears to believe that they are "superior"; nobody likes a bully." and "Be careful with user warning templates. Be careful about issuing templated messages to editors you're currently involved in a dispute with, and exercise caution when using templated messages for newcomers (see Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers). Consider using a personal message instead of, or in addition to, the templated message." Also, remember to assume good faith and not bite the newcomer (or in this case, someone with significantly less edits/experience than you. ParadiseDesertOasis8888 (talk) 03:21, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
The use of bold on the word "stop" is neither an attack nor aggression. It is a call for you to stop a particular editing action that you are engaging in when your previous 30-odd exercises of that action have been reverted (and you have no doubt noted that they were). I also directed you to the particular policy that addresses that action. You are also not a "newbie" after more editing here for more than a year and 3000+ edits. I did not call your good faith into question. General Ization Talk 03:27, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
I was warned originally after adding all but two pages to the category. I added the other two before I realized that the others had been removed from the category (you can even see that I reverted one of my own edits after I realized that the others had been removed). It wasn't done in a rebellious way. Also, by assuming that I knew I wasn't supposed to add them after the first warning, you are calling my good faith into question. Lastly, I wasn't calling you aggressive, the section of the article that I quoted said passion that may be interpreted as aggression. I don't think you were trying to be aggressive, you're just passionate about Wikipedia. I'm sure that you've had to deal with a lot of people who add categories without good intentions and you may have just assumed that I'm one of them. ParadiseDesertOasis8888 (talk) 04:46, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
It's all good then. I suggest, however, that you participate in the discussion about which you were notified above, either to contest the deletion of the category or to acknowledge that you now understand why it may be deleted. General Ization Talk 04:51, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Also be aware that the notification message is a requirement when listing something for discussion. It is also added automatically by the script that makes up the WP:TWINKLE editing help package that I used to tag the category, start the discussion on the discussion page and notify the creator of the item in question that a discussion is taking place. Geraldo Perez (talk) 03:31, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you...[edit]

... for adding references for album and song genres, and adding appropriate categories for sourced genres. Too often I am having to remove unsourced genre fields from infoboxes and corresponding categories, so keep up the great work! ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:51, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

No problem, glad to know I'm doing it correctly! Thank you for taking the time to come over here and write that. It means a lot! -- ParadiseDesertOasis8888 (talk) 00:54, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
