Orphaned non-free image File:Toontown Online, Toontown Central Screenshot 5-25-2012.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Toontown Online, Toontown Central Screenshot 5-25-2012.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 18:32, 19 March 2017 (UTC)


I'm kinda new to wikipedia. Lately I have been working on reverting Vandal edits. While fixing a few articles I saw that you undid the edit before i did.

Any advice on improving efficiency?

Kondavarsha (talk) 21:01, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

@Kondavarsha: Welcome to counter-vandalism. I think based on your edit summaries you're already aware of the tool WP:Twinkle which allows quick reversion of vandal edits (if not you can enable it in your Wikipedia settings). Everytime you revert something that's clearly vandalism you should definitely warn the user by going to their talk page whether or not it exists and clicking the button 'warn' in the top right that Twinkle enables. Start by warning at level 1, and each subsequent vandalism move it up a level. Past level 4 you should then click 'arv' (another button enabled by Twinkle) to report the user to administrators at WP:AIV so that an admin can block them. I'm guessing you're already patrolling recent changes - you can always narrow your searches down to IP editors only if you're looking for more likely vandals.
The key to counter-vandalism efficiency is that after you've built up enough experience (200+ edits) you can request the WP:ROLLBACK user right which allows you to use mass reversion tools such as WP:Huggle and WP:STiki. These tools are very efficient, categorising recent edits by likelihood of vandalism and allowing one button revert+warnings. I'd definitely recommend getting this user right as soon as you can as it will speed things up a lot. Hopefully that's all you need to know, but if you have more questions I'm happy to answer them Face-smile.svg -NottNott|talk 21:13, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
Also how do I reply to talk page replies? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kondavarsha (talkcontribs) 21:19, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
@Kondavarsha: If you're replying to someone and it's not their own talk page, it's a good idea to notify them using the {{re|username}} template so they get notified through the wiki software. This is how I'm notifying you - check the source code of my reply to see how it's used. It's also a good idea to indent your talk page replies using colons - I modified your reply to be indented and commented where I used it. Hope this helps. -NottNott|talk 21:29, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
@NottNott: Thank You!

antifa edit[edit]

You told me I edited something against them, I added information that is being released by cops and local authorities as I have been abused by these people myself. We are being told to do not speak to them as you could be at risk for harm. That is not personal bias as I am on no one's side for it. this group is causing horrible riots and danger for others. People should know all sides do this as men, women and children are being attacked by these people for no reason.

@Nowayjosie: Hey, welcome to Wikipedia. I can understand your frustration with the organisation, and trust me I'm in no way supportive of their actions either (they're a misguided bunch of people, without getting too political). However, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia first and foremost - and rules regarding both sourcing articles and writing it in a neutral way are very important to keep the quality of articles written high. Wikipedia isn't a good place to warn others of potential danger just because it's an encyclopedia first and foremost. If you can provide me with a URL link to the source you mention however, I'd be happy to add the content in a more encyclopedic manner. Hope this is okay with you, and let me know if you have any questions. -NottNott|talk 20:40, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

On JerussalemSa[edit]

I need to upload my profile on wikipedia what can I do??? Or how can I do it — Preceding unsigned comment added by JerussalemSa (talkcontribs) 20:41, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

@JerussalemSa: Welcome to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not a soapbox or means of promotion. WP:NOTABILITY (a Wikipedia policy) states that there must be significant third party sources before an article should be created. A Google search for 'JerussalemSa' shows no significant sources, so unfortunately in your case the article should not be created. If you have any questions please let me know. -NottNott|talk 20:47, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Michael McCann MP[edit]

Deat Nott Nott

I am Michael McCann formerly Michael McCann MP. I am no longer a politician.

The page Michael McCann MP only contains highly biased information.

For example, that I was involved in a planning dispute and that I was charged by the Police etc.

It is also provides a limited and politically motivated summary of my career.

I was therefore in the process of making factual edits to provide a full and accurate picture inclduing citing sources and you have deleted it all.

How is that fair? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Michaelmccann1964 (talkcontribs) 13:10, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

@Michaelmccann1964: I think the user El cid, el campeador has made some edits here that you might find of interest as it appears to change some of the tone of the writing to a less biased form as well as removing some irrelevant material. In addition, I've gone ahead and removed two paragraphs that I believe is in breech of our WP:BLPCRIME policy in an edit which you can find here. Apologies about this situation and if you have any more questions please let me know. -NottNott|talk 13:28, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum[edit]

I'm messaging about your reversion of my recent change to the article on Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum. You said that my change "did not appear constructive." The reason for my change is that the current page has an error. After the name of the temple it has the Chinese name, along with what claims to be the Jyutping romanisation of the name. The romanisation given isn't Jyutping - it might be Yale romanisation, but I don't know Yale so I'm not sure. In any case, the page is currently incorrect, and the simplest fix seems to me to insert the correct Jyutping romanisation (which was what I did in my edit). (talk) 13:57, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

@ Oh, I'm sorry. I've never actually heard of Jyutping in my life or seen how it's typed. To me it seemed like a vandal wrote a bunch of words with random numbers in them, how wrong I was. I've restored your edit Face-smile.svg -NottNott|talk 14:17, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
@NottNott: No worries, thanks for restoring Face-smile.svg (talk) 14:27, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
