May 6[edit]

Your additions to May 6 have been reverted for the following reasons: First, the events added do not meet the inclusion criteria per WP:DOY; second, you grouped multiple items together which is against the formatting guidelines per WP:DAYS: third, you added unnecessary references. References are not used in the DOY articles. If you have questions, please ask, but please do not add the content again. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 09:50, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Daniel Craig, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page British. 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Nick B 1993 Autumn & Winter 1.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Nick B 1993 Autumn & Winter 1.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

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 "Click here to 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 removed 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.

DRN[edit]

Hello! There is a DR/N request you may have interest in.[edit]

Peacedove.svg

This message is being sent to let you know of a discussion at the Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute discussion you may have participated in. Content disputes can hold up article development and make editing difficult for editors. You are not required to participate, but you are both invited and encouraged to help this dispute come to a resolution. Please join us to help form a consensus. Thank you! Robert McClenon (talk) 15:49, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

An editor disagrees with some edits that you made about an association football game and wishes to discuss at the dispute resolution noticeboard. Robert McClenon (talk) 15:49, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Have you seen this message, Chris Tomic? Or can we take your silence as tacit approval of the article as it stands? – PeeJay 08:47, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, my godfather died of cancer recently and I've been at/dealing with funeral business and grief. You'll understand my silence of course. I only ever go silent in discussions when serious issues arise in my life.
What you have done is totally disproportionate. We had a discussion on the relevant talk page and we were making good progress with it. We don't need ADR. Chris Tomic (talk) 12:40, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't know what ADR is, but you may mean DRN. I understand that this is a case where life trumps Wikipedia. However, if there is no reply at DRN, I will close the thread as a general close in about 24 hours. My sympathies about the death in the family. Robert McClenon (talk) 15:35, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Sympathies from me also. —  Cliftonian (talk)  16:30, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your understanding and sympathies. I'm sorry, I'm a law student and I'm prone to use legal terms; by ADR I did indeed mean DRN. I was saying that PeeJay has dealt with this issue disproportionately in bringing it here. The talk page discussion was perfectly sufficient in resolving this issue. Chris Tomic (talk) 21:37, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Circumstances appreciated. But I don't think the talk page discussion was sufficient as the only other third party so far (User:Cliftonian) expressed no interest in continuing his involvement. Therefore I sought a party more willing to help us reach a suitable compromise. DRN was the right place to go. – PeeJay 22:13, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
He was more active than you during your very recent period of silence. Chris Tomic (talk) 22:33, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Like yours, that was an enforced silence. Besides, that conversation was going round in circles and I very much doubt anything would have come of either of us re-hashing the same arguments over and over again. – PeeJay 23:05, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
You should have made more of an effort to stay in the loop. Arguments weren't being recycled, just clarity of points was being ameliorated. Progress was made, your petulant self just couldn't stand the fact that my contributions were prevailing. Chris Tomic (talk) 23:45, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
I have no interest in feeding your delusions over who was "prevailing" or otherwise. Of course you believe your arguments were stronger, you're biased to believe as such, just as I am inclined to believe my arguments are stronger; that's why I requested third-party intervention. I'm not party to what's going on in User:Cliftonian's head, so only he can say who he thought was more in the right. Regardless, the DRN discussion has now been started, and as User:Robert McClenon says, if you choose not to reply in the next day or so, the discussion will be closed. There's no policy for what I'm about to say, but I believe if you choose not to participate, you forfeit your rights to complain when the original version of the article remains in place and your changes are consigned to the annals of the article's edit history. You don't win arguments on Wikipedia simply by being stubborn, so if that's your plan by ignoring the DRN discussion, you might as well give up now. – PeeJay 00:12, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Exchanging snarky comments at DRN results in the comments being hatted (partially suppressed). Exchanging snarky comments at a talk page only results in advice to stop exchanging snarky comments. Robert McClenon (talk) 00:37, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
I haven't alluded once to what my 'plan' is. I have merely said and indeed standby now that DRN is not needed in this instance. You alone invoked mild issues with my edits and fuelled a furore to get rid of them which was totally disproportionate. We argued for days and no one but you opposed my edits as fiercely as you have and it must have come up as notifications for dozens of users. Of the points of argument, the talk page discussion resolved most of them and if you could just persevere with it a little longer we can assign this needless debate to the annals of history. Chris Tomic (talk) 00:55, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Follow-up[edit]

I was asked by one of the editors of Battle of Old Trafford about efforts to discuss your edits to the article. I have replied on the talk page. I haven't seen any efforts at real discussion on the talk page, and failure to participate in dispute resolution was not helpful. It looks as though you have "blown off" previous requests to discuss your edits. Please engage in real discussion on the talk page, because the only real remaining venue now is WP:ANI, which could result in you being topic-banned from the article.

Your recent editing history 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.

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Daniel Craig. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been or will be reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. No, it was not approved. Reach a proper consensus first. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 23:04, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

December 2015[edit]

Please stop attacking other editors, as you did on Talk:Vedad Ibišević. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. Sir Sputnik (talk) 21:08, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

@Sir Sputnik: Knee-jerk reaction for which I apologise; it doesn't better anything or anyone, least of all myself. Out of deference to myself, you and others, I have retracted the statement. My apologies once again. Chris Tomic (talk) 21:42, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Conversation on WP:CHU/U[edit]

Hello Chris Tomic. May I kindly ask that you refrain from conducting extensive or heated discussions on the changing username pages, and carry out any user-to-user discussions on your or the other user's user talk page? A bureaucrat has, in the past, commented that these discussions unnecessarily clutter up the page and are detrimental. Thanks, —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:59, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
