January 2015[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Operating system advocacy 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. -=# Amos E Wolfe talk #=- 17:42, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Ncdu screenshot.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Ncdu screenshot.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Textadept[edit]

Hello, OMPIRE. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Textadept, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Irondome (talk) 21:01, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Edit war at Operating system advocacy[edit]

In the future, please attempt to engage in discussion with the editor and explain your rationale for removal, and Wikipedia's criteria for content inclusion. Should discussion prove to be fruitless, you may request a third opinion from an editor not involved in the dispute by going to WP:3 (this is often helpful to diffuse situations). Should this fail, you may bring the matter to the Administrative noticeboard at WP:AN3 for a more formal process. WP:DR details many avenues an editor may explore for dispute resolution, please review that document. I've also replied to the editor in question on the article's talk page which contains additional information as well; you may wish to review this and take part in the discussion. Should you have additional questions or need anything at all, feel free to reach out on my talk page or respond here by using {{U|dsprc}} as it will alert me via notifications. Thank you and Namaste. -- dsprc [talk] 11:54, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Utility software. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount and can lead to a block, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. Codename Lisa (talk) 03:24, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

@OMPIRE, remember that part about engaging in discussion? Please do not continue the back and forth reverts; work it out. -- dsprc [talk] 08:58, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

ST or Amiga[edit]

Regarding the undo of my last commit, you stated that: "no ST or Amiga was not a home computer". However before my changed they are reported as home computers. I've just changed some small parts of the article to introduce some clarifications, since the low-end models of both personal computer families were considered home computer. If you think that they aren't home computer, I personally agree (even the low-end models have advanced, powerful hardware) and I propose you to completely remove their references on this page.

ST and Amiga: home computers or not?[edit]

Regarding the undo of my last commit, you stated that: "no ST or Amiga was not a home computer". However before my changes they were reported as home computers in the page. So, I've just changed some small parts of the article to introduce clarifications, since the low-end models of both personal computers families were considered home computers.

If you think that they aren't home computers, I personally agree (even the low-end models have much more advanced, powerful hardware, and cost greatly more than the home computers models that they supplanted) and I propose you to completely remove their references from the page.

Your contributed article, Hans Solo[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.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Hans Solo. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Han Solo. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Han Solo – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, 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. 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. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. 331dot (talk) 22:47, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Rapidshare notice.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Rapidshare notice.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 14:05, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Stop icon This is your only warning; if you remove or blank page contents or templates from Wikipedia again, as you did at Cowboy coding, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:51, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

You really need to write better edit summaries[edit]

Hi.

An edit summary is "a brief explanation of an edit to a Wikipedia page". Your edit summaries, however, seem more like a restatement of the obvious. They always raise the question of why. For example, see the case that lead to the exaggerated and misleading warning above from Walter Görlitz: You deleted several templates and your edit summary ("rm old tpl") does not explain why you deleted those old templates.

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Kaya (programming language) is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kaya (programming language) (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. ― Padenton|   08:29, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of PerversionTracker[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 PerversionTracker requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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".

Main point being that REPLs are characteristic of scripting languages: they typically go together, and are cited when people call X a scripting language. I'd be happy to revise or incorporate other suggestions if this doesn't address your concerns. Thanks!

Proposed deletion of Goo gone[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Goo gone has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unremarkable product. Not notable

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you.

July 2015[edit]

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule, as you did at Console war. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  —Darkwind (talk) 05:28, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

August 2015[edit]

Information icon Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow, or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus, as you did to Easter egg (media). This includes making page moves while a discussion remains under way. We have some guidelines to help with deciding what title is best for a subject. If you would like to experiment with page titles and moving, please use the test Wikipedia. Thank you. McGeddon (talk) 08:24, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

File source problem with File:SHRDLUs World.gif[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:SHRDLUs World.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Non-free rationale for File:PageSpinner icon.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:PageSpinner icon.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:10, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Clarification needed regarding an edit[edit]

I just wanted to get a clarification from you regarding this edit you did in the Web 2.0 article. In the comparison linked, it's clear that you have just added quotations around the Web 1.0 title. Can you remember why you added those? There's no obvious reason I could guess of. Don't get confused as I am asking about a very old edit. I wanted to know this because, there's a problem with redirection of Web 1.0 article to that section. To get a rough idea visit this link. I could give you more information if you need. Please reply with what you remember about that edit. --Kaartic (talk) 03:14, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

File:Text windowing in GNU Emacs.png needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Text windowing in GNU Emacs.png appears to be missing information as to one (or more) of the following :

  1. The author or creators of the work, (including information as to the author's lifespan).
  2. Where and how this particular version was obtained.
  3. When the work was created,

If you did provide such information, it is currently confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|OMPIRE}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.

Please also add authorship and sourcing to other files you created or uplopaded. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log.


If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:20, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
