This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. Take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources for information about how to cite sources and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

- Hello. Of course, there are severel. Just google the subject.
By the way: Most of the sources give his middle name as Brodrick instead of Broderick.
- Thanks. In the future, users are expected to add citations to any content they add; just a word to the wise :). Enjoy the remainder of your weekend! Ironholds (talk) 20:29, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi and thanks for locating middle names in the Homer Davenport article, but can you tell me the source you used to find them? The source we have in there doesn't verify the info and as Homer Davenport is a featured article, we have to verify EVERYTHING. So if you could, pop by that talk page (or answer here) and let me know the source. Montanabw(talk) 21:24, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Hello, I'm TJRC. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Stirling Silliphant, 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.

- Hello. Well there are several sources on the internet, for example [this one] or [this one]. Maybe that helps. Thank you. OfficeBoy (talk) 15:25, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Hello, I'm Egghead06. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to River Deep – Mountain High because it did not appear constructive. 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. Please read WP:SONGCOVER Egghead06 (talk) 05:14, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
Please do not add or change content without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Egghead06 (talk) 11:44, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
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.

Did you attempt a legitimate (sourced) edit in the Peg Entwistle article, or was your mention of 1888 and the USS YALE meant as something else? Peg Entwistle was not yet born in 1888, and she never sailed on the YALE. This is clearly shown and sourced in the Ellis Island Foundation records and a biography detailing her family and their arrival to America. The edit you attempted has been reverted. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 06:31, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
- I can read and therefore I am well aware that Entwistle was not born in 1888. 1888 is simply the year in which the ship on which she "reportedly" emigrated to the USA was put in service. I don't know what this has to do with her DOB. The linking was (obviously) intended to be an improvement of the article. I googled it again and I think I was mistaken. I guess it was probably rather the City of Paris which was named Philadelphia around the time the Entwistle family relocated to America. But of course I will refrain from any further editings of the article. English-speaking Wikipedia is surprisingly hostile, ungrateful, and bitchy. Thank you and good night.

Clark edit Suggestion
- For example Titanics passenger manifest which is all over the internet. Just check the 'First Class passengers' section on Encyclopedia Titanica. You're welcome. OfficeBoy (talk) 20:08, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to William A. Clark. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. OfficeBoy, you have a long history of adding material without sources and leaving it to others to clean up after you. There are numerous comments above explaining the problem to you. Please stop doing that. TJRC (talk) 19:06, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open!
When we have two reputable sources that contradict each other (the Baltimore Sun clearly says she was 48 and a dozen years older), we cite them both.
Please do not add or change content, as you did at River Deep - Mountain High, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Egghead06 (talk) 02:30, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
- If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor, discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page, and seek consensus with them. 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, seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.
- Darling, excuse me, but are you fucking serious? Didn't I just tell you that I've got the very records in my hand? Just google it, goddammit. I don't understand what you want. I add cover versions to Wikipedia articles all the time and you, yes YOU are the only one that keeps deleting it. No-one else is such a PAIN in the ass. What's your problem? Don't get me wrong but you really are an egghead. But okay, I'll try. I mean, you certainly know about discogs.com (I'm not entirely sure though as you seem to be quite limited and unwilling to do research). You can look for the artists in question on that website. You can also take a look [] and yes, there are at least 68 motherf***ing cover versions of this song. And I only added a handful. It's all there. And, I'll say it again, I got these records in my collection and, surprise, they include versions of "River Deep - Mountain High". Jesus Fucking Christ. Please someone take this person off Wikipedia.
