Welcome to Wikipedia![edit]

Hello, NocturnalDef, and welcome to Wikipedia!

An edit that you recently made to New York City seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox.

Test?[edit]

What were you implying that I was testing? NocturnalDef (talk) 17:34, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

I saw your question on User talk:FlightTime and looked at the edit you referenced there. I can't speak for FlightTime but my concern with that edit is the same as the two edits I have reverted of yours this morning on United States. they are all unsourced. One of the edits I reverted today was actually sourced and you changed the information without updating the source. You changed the data from what the source says to some other number. While it may be true that over the last 3 years the ranking has changed you can't just change it. You need to remove the old source and add the new source. ~ GB fan 12:24, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

I'm kinda new at this...still attempting to deduce on how to add the sources separate from the text. NocturnalDef (talk) 12:40, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

You don't need to start a new section to respond, just tack it on to the section you are responding to. Makes it easier to read. This document, Help:Referencing for beginners, might help you work through the referencing issues. ~ GB fan 18:04, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

November 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm TheOldJacobite. I noticed that you recently removed content from V for Vendetta (film) without adequately explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the removed content has been restored. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

December 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm ChamithN. I noticed that you made a change to an article, United States, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at United States 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 are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the 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.--regentspark (comment) 00:10, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

March 2018[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Andromeda Galaxy, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Please refer to notes on the new refs you attempted to insert.

Understood.[edit]

My goal was to simply gain the attention to the editors at hand. I tried to start a consensus on the revised size of Andromeda and to little success. The article needs to be changed as adromedas true size is 110,000 light-years in diameter. Please take this into consideration.

My regards. NocturnalDef (talk) 08:47, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
