De facto prod challenge

Hello,Ohnoitsjamie. :) I wanted to let you know that an article you prodded, and which was deleted as a result of that PROD, has been recreated by its original creator at Patrick McCauley. I've restored the history for attribution reasons (even though all creative content may be attributed to the individual who restored it) and wanted to drop you a courtesy notice (now that I've correctly identified you - I first thought the PROD placed by another user) in case the changes do not address your concerns. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:30, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Socks?

Hi Jamie. I noticed this edit while checking out the owner of that page, a new editor who is already seeking adminship. I thought that was odd, considering this is their record at the moment "83 edits since: 2015-07-31". Their stay here hasn't been without problems.

Is he actually using socks (in a good hand / bad hand fashion), and his sock User:Marcos13525 is now blocked? -- BullRangifer (talk) 05:34, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

It wasn't clear to me if he was using a good hand/bad hand sock, or (perhaps more likely) a buddy was on his wifi or school network. I have no doubt that at the very least Randomstuff207 and Marcos13525 know each other. I wasn't too concerned about the RfA given how ridiculous and WP:SNOW it is. OhNoitsJamie Talk 13:29, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
We definitely have a strong connection here: 173.63.208.216 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · edit filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log)
Is it strong enough to block all concerned for socking? -- BullRangifer (talk) 16:32, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Well...could just be forgetfully editing while logged out. If the user continues to push the RfA thing after being warned not to, I'd say block 'em all and be done with it. OhNoitsJamie Talk 16:51, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Dear Jamie, I have never been using sockpuppets, EVER. And I also do not use a shared network. The user Marcos13525 is a person that I know that was at my house and decided to vandalize Wikipedia. Just to let you know. And also, I will also stop sending ridiculous RFA requests. R@ndomstuff207 w (talk) 01:32, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Odd choice

Hello. I found this to be an odd thing for an administrator to do. Fortunately, a helpful IP user with no prior editing history saw the page as you left it, recognized the absurdity of the extraneous material, and re-deleted it. Methinks perhaps you haven't had enough sleep lately :) Etamni | ✉   06:51, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes, that was a mistake. I reverted my warning to the IP. OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:48, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
LOL no worries. I first noticed it as an IP user deleting lots of bytes from purple, then saw what was being deleted and thought my pet sockmaster was back (i.e. the now-blocked user who originally posted all the donuts), but when I saw it was someone else and checked your page, I realized it was just an accident. Etamni | ✉   09:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Signature

Dear Jamie, I customized my signature on a CSS style sheet and got the results that I wanted. But today, I just found out that my customized signature could only be viewed by me and not by other people. How do you make your CSS custom signature so that it can be viewed by other people? R@ndomstuff207 w (talk) 17:31, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

I don't use a separate style sheet. My signature is HTML using inline styles, set on my Preferences/Signatures page. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:25, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Landlord

Seems, Kingshowman is back with a bang. I undid their reversion of your edits in good faith, but it seems they are hell bent on having it 'their way or the highway'. I don't want to engage in an edit war, so I leave it up to you, as an admin, as you would have a better judgement of the situation. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 18:45, 1 September 2015 (UTC)

Well, that was mercifully quick. It would have been unfortunate to see time wasted on another ANI thread. Cheers, OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:41, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
This has been one of the most interesting blocks I have come across. I'm going to study the userpage and edits for behavioural patterns now. :D --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 06:31, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Would you see here [1] and Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Mailzzang+aus?--Altostratus (talk) 10:49, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I communicated with them at a venue at the same time. I persuaded them legal threats can be much bad and not to solve any problem. It was hard, but they now understand what faults they make and regret to you and others.-Altostratus (talk) 10:52, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm not interested in communicating further with that user or any of his friends trying to promote him on Wikipedia. OhNoitsJamie Talk 14:36, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
You did blocked them. You have to take responsibility for your behavior.--Altostratus (talk) 23:10, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
There is no "behavior" here for me to take responsibility for. I'm not discussing it further. OhNoitsJamie Talk 23:13, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Chet Baker

Thanks for spotting the wrong reference. It was a honest mistake. I do not understand what you mean by "one line" Or capitalization. As far as I know the title of the record was all in Capitals if that is what you meant. ( at least according to Billboard)

If only one line has the historical content and is acurate i don't see the issue.
Chet's tour in Europe was a big deal at the time and an amazing album came out of it. Billboard is a great source for music and muscians.

I am not aware that looking at Billboard for histoical content is contrary to the spirit of Wikipedia. I will be trying the edit again with the proper citation as i think it is good content ThanksAircastle (talk) 14:13, 3 September 2015 (UTC) I know see that the alblum was not all in capitals. ( i checked the album artwork) My apolgies. Thanks for the correction. I tried the edit again with the proper citation. Please let me know if there is any problem this time. Thanks for comments. Aircastle (talk) 14:37, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Just a suggestion; your paraphrasing is a little too close to the original quotes in several cases. This is obvious when you re-use less common or colorful words like "triumphant" or "crumpled the cars." Stick to more neutral language unless you are quoting directly. Cheers, OhNoitsJamie Talk 14:39, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice. I am fairly new to Wikipedia but the subjects i try to contribute to hold a deep interest for me. I really appreciate your help as i want to contribute in a concise and meaningful way. Thanks and still learning. Aircastle (talk) 15:56, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your contributions; it takes a long time to get really familiar with all of the policies, and I still learn new things all the time after almost 10 years. Let me know if you ever have questions or need additional advice. OhNoitsJamie Talk 16:03, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

I wanted to ask you if you would be willing to have a discussion with me re: this issue given that we don't agree in hopes that maybe my ideas for editing the page might change your mind and we could reach consensus? Honestly feeling a little intimidated by some of the mods. I wrote on DOC James talk page too. I'm not asking for anyone to just do it my way, I just am trying to explain my idea and be heard...

Help Akshardham Environment Violation Section

Hello,

I noticed that you reverted an edit at the Akshardham article. If you have time would you please take a look at it again and the discussion. The users there are hell bent on removing the correctly cited and sourced criticism regarding their building because they do not want to see any factual information regarding the overall impact of their temple. Here are the links [2] and this discussion [3] and if you have time pleas provide your input. There is a cited content dispute I am having on the talk page and I feel you can help with some clarification for this topic. Thank you

Confusion

Hello, You said that I added "commentary and your personal analysis into articles," calling it "disruptive editing." However, I am completely confused. I simply stated facts.

Let's start on the "Adam Lindgren" page; I said that he won two major tournaments, but you reverted it. You could go check for yourself. He said on his AMA (which was approved by moderators as legitimate) that he considers himself a "duo main" (which I edited), but you completely took out the whole thing. Even when citing my facts, you still edited it out. You even edited out well-known facts about this player that I didn't even add in. Those are just a few of the problems I have with this article.

Next is the "William 'Leffen' Hjelte" page, or, more specifically, the "Controversy" section of this page. I cited the "Controversy" with several sources. Leffen was considered a villain in the Smash community and he was eventually banned by the European Smash community until he wrote a detailed apology. On the Smashboards page, he was banned and Lindgren himself posted my facts. None of the things I posted was an opinion. [5]

Lastly, we have "Joseph Marquez." I understand that you would delete "He is known for making Jigglypuff a top five character in Melee" since I failed to find a source, but the other ones do not make sense. The fact that he holds positive records over almost all Smash players getting deleted? How is that biased in any way? I'm simply stating a fact! Another thing I want to talk about is the HTC Throwdown paragraph. Mango did indeed attend this tournament and did played in it. It was also cited by many commentators on the Twitch tournament stream (I did not reference this since it might look like advertising). Also, while "many have criticized the list that Mango should be ranked behind rival Hungrybox" may look like an opinion, it is a fact. On the MIOM page, many people have expressed their disapproval of the ranking! The last thing I want to talk about on this page is you deleting the tournament results. Battle Arena Melbourne 7 is the formal name of BAM7. For whatever reason, you also deleted the CEO 2015 and the WTFox tournament results as well.

I do not see how I put my own personal bias into this. I would like a response ASAP.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drwoo217 (talkcontribs) 19:16, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Some of your additions were fine, but statements like He is also considered to be the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) are violate neutral point-of-view policies. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:45, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Template protection

Hi Ohnoitsjamie. I see that you recently template protected User:StaufferBuddy and User talk:TokyEoul‎ – presumably you meant to select a different protection level?‎ Thanks, Evad37 [talk] 15:14, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I had intended to apply a higher level of protection to them so socks couldn't edit them. I'll fix that now. Thanks! OhNoitsJamie Talk 15:17, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

Administrator Barnstar Hires.png The Admin's Barnstar
Unblock requests are not easy or fun to review and there is little reward in the work. In fact, they can be so unenjoyable that the backlog accumulates not as a result of an unreasonably heavy workload, but simply due to the lack of administrators willing to deal with them. Luckily for the project, you're usually around to take a look at them. If there is an unblock request, you are very often the one to review it. Your responses virtually always seem fair, straightforward, and well-reasoned. In the multitude of your responses I've come across, I never recall encountering one that struck me as lazy, unfair, or harsh. Editors and admins alike can rest easy knowing that unblock requests are being seen to by a grounded and reasonable administrator such as yourself. Like I said, it's an utterly thankless job that most people don't want to do, so let me be the one to sincerely thank you for your effort in this area. Wikipedia is very fortunate to have such a great administrator and great person dedicated to its cause. Keep up the great work, and thanks again! Best regards, Swarm 05:18, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Trust on ALLAH

As I noted at User talk:Trust on ALLAH (where I maybe should have pinged you) I'm tempted to accept the unblock request and give them a second chance.

User: User talk:Doctor Franklin

As was clear here, he never acknowledged being wrong for his block, and then retaliated by opening this ANI for which he probably should have been sanctioned, but instead (perhaps because nobody looked in detail into his editing history) his claims were merely rejected. Since then his disruptions have continued. Another editor opened up a Reliable Sources Noticeboard discussion about a source Doctor Franklin complained about: [6]. Doctor Franklin disputed the source, nobody else did. After the discussion was archived, he went ahead and blanked the info referenced to that source with the misleading edit summary "remove comments by Eberhardt as not RS per failed discussion on RSNB " diff: [7]. He's also started a one-against-all struggle to include claims by some sort of extreme Russian nationalist posted on a Russian nationalist website, described briefly here: [8].Faustian (talk) 06:06, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Yet Another CaptainHog Sock

Diwali

Could you please explain the reason for auto removing corrections in Diwali page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neil2000 (talkcontribs) 18:14, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

(1) There is nothing inherently "chronological" about motivations behind Diwali and (2) "In all interpretations, one common thread rings true—the festival marks the victory of good over evil" violates WP:NPOV and doesn't add anything. OhNoitsJamie Talk 18:17, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

There is diversity in celebration of Diwali. Please look at Ten Avatar's of Vishnu, and then you will see that Lakshmi's reason is number 1, then comes Rama Avatar the reason for celebration is due to his return to Ayodhya (certain parts of India celebrates for this reason). then comes Krishna Avatar, again some parts of India celebrates due to the reason Krishna kills Narakasura. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neil2000 (talkcontribs) 18:23, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Bottom line; your change added nothing to the article, and was distracting at best. I'm not going to discuss it on the talk page further. Take it to Talk:Diwali. OhNoitsJamie Talk 18:25, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

New article question

Hello. As you are an administrator, I thought I'd pose this policy question to you. I recently added a new article, but it was blanked and a redirect added in it's place. At the time it was blanked, there was no discussion and no AfD. What is the proper protocol in this situation? Other new articles I've created and/or worked on involved at least some discussion before it is removed. Thanks for your time.--Surv1v4l1st Talk|Contribs 20:54, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

There isn't a policy forbidding changing a small article into a redirect if the topic of the new article (1) isn't particularly notable on it's own or (2) could easily be covered in the main article. If the community deems it to be a controversial claim, then it would usually end up in AfD. OhNoitsJamie Talk 21:59, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for letting me know.--Surv1v4l1st Talk|Contribs 22:14, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Lexus unsourced material

Hi there.

All changes I have made were to standardize what´s written in the Wikipedia. The pages for both Lexus CT and IS were shown only as "Lexus (manufacturer)" and there was no mention of Lexus being the luxury division of Toyota, something that pretty much everybody knows in the English world (Lexus dropped its name tag around 2010 for new models). Furthermore, I don´t see why Audi doesn´t have the same treatment by calling themselves the "luxury brand of VAG".

Regarding the unsourced material, which part exactly do you mean? The "RC has design cues from both the IS and GS?" You can clearly see that yourself by I can add the source for that if it´s needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asoksevil (talkcontribs) 16:42, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

If you want to talk about the design cues of the IS and GS, feel free to find a source for that without removing the Toyota connection. Lexus has always been the luxury division of Toyota, the same as Acura/Honda and Infiniti/Nissan. If you removed well-sourced material like that again, you will be blocked. OhNoitsJamie Talk 17:08, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

The IP you blocked is back. I can't do anything, I live here and edit it regularly so too deeply involved. He didn't even try to make a comment at the talk page after the block expired, just made the edit, so intent is crystal clear, imho. Adding to the blacklist might be the most effective means of managing the problem, but I would leave that to your discretion. Ping me if needed. Dennis Brown - 02:06, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Difference between sock tags

It's better to use {{IPsock}} for an IP address, as {{sock}} says "this account", which can be confusing to editors (including me and the other IP's who reverted you). 166.197.134.140 (talk) 22:32, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

That's fine with me; my objection was to moving the sock tag to the bottom with a heading. Sock tags are by convention placed at the top of a page. You are correct that an IPsock makes more sense than the general sock template; I'm just more accustomed to using the latter. OhNoitsJamie Talk 00:20, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

User talk:24.63.116.248: Update

It looks like another IP editor from the same general range as before has changed the sock tag to be established. The editor said in the summary that it's obvious because the first block was made aganist this IP following the blocking of Mister Encyclopedia, which is a confirmed sock account of I Love Bridges. Just so you know. 166.198.83.102 (talk) 02:49, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

More over the person Kimberly Jesika is a childrens comic book author and a Animation film director. Entertainment host is her secondary job . You highlighted that only ??? I want to make my points .

That was a mistake. I meant to use the WP:PROD template; it is now corrected. If that prod tag is disputed, I will then send that article (and any other disputed prods you've recently created for your clients) through our WP:AFD process. OhNoitsJamie Talk 19:45, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Nobel Oil Group

I've noticed you made some edits to the Nobel Oil Group [10]. The "deadlinks" are only dead as of yesterday, since the Nobel Oil Group has been putting pressure on Azerbaijani media to remove the reports. Due to such extraordinary pressure, the already strongly pressured media removed critical reports. However, I have them saved in PDF and TXT formats. So what is the best process to make these reports available, or at least to remove the "deadlinks" tags?

Second, the Financial Times report about corruption payments in the oil industry is applicable to Nobel Oil Group, and was properly cited. Perhaps we can reword it somewhat, so that all readers could benefit from this oil industry knowledge?

Finally, the listed owner of the company does not have any oil or energy experience prior to founding the company. It is not listed anywhere, he did not have any companies. And then in 2005 suddenly established this fairly large, by domestic standards, oil company and started getting contracts. Nobel Oil Group itself does not list any bio of its founder and beneficiaries. Redzed9876 (talk) 18:34, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

The statements about the owner and what Nobel is not listed in clearly violates our WP:SYNTH and WP:OR policies (i.e., does not come directly from reliable sources. OhNoitsJamie Talk 19:32, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, fair enough. I haven't yet posted several authoritative sources that show exactly that. Please consider the fact that there is not a single independent, authoritative source that shows the company or its owner as transparent, non-shadowy, non-murky, non-secretive. But the 3-4 independent news sources that are from well established sources and are the only one's that write anything based on investigative reporting, all agree that Nobel Oil Group is a secretive, mysterious, non-transparent, shadowy company. Redzed9876 (talk) 19:54, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
The burden of proof is on you to find sources to say it is murky or secretive, not on Wikipedia to find sources that say it isn't those things. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:37, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Very true. Which is why when I find those sources, verify them, make sure they are accessible, that they are independent and authoritative, they should stay. The edit [11] was about Nasib Hasanov and his office that dealt with oil. It has direct relevance to the Nobel Oil Group article. Why remove such well-sourced, accessible, verifiable, independent, authoritative information? Redzed9876 (talk) 21:21, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
thank you for protecting the article. Redzed9876 (talk) 20:52, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
It was becoming obvious that a concerted effort to whitewash the article was occurring; full protection should take care of that for awhile. If you find additional sources (for anything related to Nobel) that meet WP:RS guidelines, please feel free to suggest them on the article's talk page. Thanks, OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:57, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

My apologies if I stepped on your toes here, while you were editing. I think we have the same goal, but I may have undone some of your work. That was not my intention; but upon reading the sources (opinion pieces, Temple Bulletins, Op-ed pieces) I felt a full reversion was appropriate. Again, I apologize if it interrupted your work in progress. ScrpIronIV 19:08, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

confusion

Dude, what the ______?

Lay out all the rules because this is growing tiresome.

First, some facts....

I wrote an article, all by myself, about a thing called a marijuana dispensary. I cited everything I wrote.

I asked for help.

Then some jackhole came in and renamed my page because he felt like it.

He named it something it should not be named because, frankly, nobody seems to be able to supply any evidence of the actual of the term cannabis dispensary.

Here... a puzzle for you...

I'd like to write an article about a famous Marihuana dispensary (ref link removed) in Michigan. Am I allowed too or is some jackhole going to redirect it to cannabis(drug) because said jackhole thinks it should point there... even though community is 12 to one against said jackhole. Curious minds want to know. --Potguru (talk) 17:25, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

ref link:

Where is the community consensus that it should be marijuana consensus? If there was such a broad consensus, I would think that the article's title would reflect that. As it currently stands, the article is still titled Cannabis dispensary, and as such the first identifying description if there are multiple names should reflect the title. Also, it's not a sound strategy to immediately resort to the same behavior following a block that got you blocked in the first place. OhNoitsJamie Talk 17:30, 22 January 2016 (UTC)


Article was originally in my draft space, then launched as marijuana dispensary. Then viriditas renamed it. There is no concensus on what it should be named. There has never been a vote on the subject.... viriditas just renamed it "because".--Potguru (talk) 17:57, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

I am not the warring party, I am the injured party.

--Potguru (talk) 18:00, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

One of the changes you reverted has no support.

  • "File:Cannabis Station.JPG|thumb|right|Cannabis Station, a medical marijuana dispensary in Denver, Colorado"" my correct statement
  • "File:Cannabis Station.JPG|thumb|right|Cannabis Station, a medical cannabis dispensary in Denver, Colorado"" your incorrect revision, which YOU used to block warn ME.

Look at the reference I included.

"Rocky Mountain High is Colorado’s line of premier, upscale medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries". http://rockymountainhigh.co/about-rocky-mountain-high/

Read the words. It CLEARLY is a marijuana dispensary named cannabis station. It's not a cannabis dispensary as you proposed.

--Potguru (talk) 18:14, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

I'll make this simple for you; until there is community consensus that results in changing the article name (currently named Cannabis dispensary) to another name, the article itself should reflect that name, period. Further discussion on this topic belongs on the article's talk page. OhNoitsJamie Talk 18:18, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Then the article should be deleted, in favor of the original article name. --Potguru (talk) 18:21, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

We don't delete articles for name changes, we move them, and there is no consensus for that. I'm not discussing the name on my talk page further; that belongs in the centralized discussion on the article's talk page. OhNoitsJamie Talk 18:23, 22 January 2016 (UTC)


I'd be more than happy to add such a section but, frankly, I'm afraid you will block me as you have warned me and not given me any belief that I am able to touch the page I wrote at all. So much for being bold, eh? --Potguru (talk) 18:28, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

doubly confused, unfair blocking warnings?

Dear Ohnoitsjamie,

Why was I warned to be blocked, but then this user was allowed to erase my post without a similar warning? https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Viriditas&action=history

Admittedly rules regarding deleting posts have some caveats. (1) You are generally free to remove comments other people make from your own talk page. It's possible that in some cases it may be seen as rude or dismissive, but it is permitted. (2) you are not permitted to remove other peoples' posts from talk pages beyond your own talk pages, or refactor other people's comments (3) when you are under an active block you may not remove declined unblock templates. Hope that helps. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:04, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

my article keeps being attacked by same user

per this edit: (cur | prev) 20:49, 22 January 2016‎ Viriditas (talk | contribs)‎ m . . (18,337 bytes) (0)‎ . . (Viriditas moved page Talk:Cannabis dispensary to Talk:Cannabis dispensaries in the United States: Bold move per excellent talk page suggestion) (undo | thank)

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Cannabis_dispensaries_in_the_United_States&action=history

User (viriditas) is moving the article with no consensus. Now he's moved it to an area it doesn't belong as marijuana dispensaries can be found around the world. Can't he be stopped while my petition is considered?

Should he not be equally warned for edit warring as he clearly is yet you will not let me respond?? --Potguru (talk) 21:00, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

I see no problem with moving it to that target, since (1) "cannabis" has already been established on Wikipedia as the consensus synonym for the substance in question and (2) the article is US-specific. I wouldn't get your hopes up about your petition. You still don't seem to understand that (1) ownership does not exist here and (2) decisions are based on community consensus, not perceived absolutes of correct or incorrect. OhNoitsJamie Talk 21:05, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry Jamie, silly me, I was still of the belief that we followed actual rules and pointed to actual references instead of just conjectured about things. Where is this consensus on cannabis vs marijuana you allege exists?

Did you locate any references to cannabis dispensaries in any meaningful source yet?

And, since you have not done the research, how is one supposed to talk about non US marijuana dispensaries such as the ones in Canada or the caribbean or europe now that the article is (incorrectly) US centric?

--Potguru (talk) 21:14, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

I'll tell you one more time: I'm not going to discuss this with you on my talk page. Use the article's talk page. The makes for a single centralized location for other editors to keep telling you the same thing you've already been told. OhNoitsJamie Talk 21:24, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

With all due respect, this is not about the issue (marijuana vs cannabis) this is about your questionable policy enforcement. I requested you ALSO warn the other user to stop the edit war as you did me. I authored the talk page you are speaking about so... let's deal with the issue I brought to your page. With all due respect. --Potguru (talk) 21:51, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

There is nothing to warn them about. OhNoitsJamie Talk 21:52, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

So just to be absolutely clear...

He moved the page to a place I think it definitely does not belong and there is no consensus or evidence to support that is does and if I move it back, or somewhere else, you intend to block me. right? --Potguru (talk) 22:15, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Yes, there's a good chance that will happen, whether it's by me or another admin. You may want to take a deep breath and read WP:BATTLEGROUND before you continue down this path. Further posts on my talk page about this topic by you will be ignored. OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:22, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

In regards to your rv to my section deletion on the article, there is a current DRN which is hopefully going to start, and I have a section on the article TP about my deletion. Since you have presumed knowledge of BLP, we could really use your help in hashing this out. I actually was looking-for excellent sources for this part of the article when maybe it was a little knee-jerk of me but the link to the author's site where she claims liable, AND that she was allegedly threatened/blackmailed with having her reputation ruined on the "internet"......well, that added to the BLP warning at the top of the TP, made me just blank it because that is how I interpreted "potentially libelous" must be rm------ and we really need editors who have dealt with BLP issues to help us--I hope you can, thanksTeeVeeed (talk) 15:04, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

And re: your recent edit to restore the "cross currents" source, we are discussing not using that source. That is actually why I was looking-for better refs, and I stumbled-upon the authors blog which I have linked on the above mentioned post on the TP---the author claims that crosscurrents blog's owner has some kind-of personal bias, also it is a blog, and if we are going to include the legal at all we are going to have to be scrupulous about sourcing-thanksTeeVeeed (talk) 15:32, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Image

What is amazing is that that cell phone quality photo on the home cinema page was taken just yesterday with a Nikon D5100 with stock lens. It's a haphazard setup and I might peruse Flickr for better image candidates as I don't like using my own stuff too much because it's haphazard, but I'm surprised by the lack of images (and references and up to date or neutral info) on the page. The lead image and image with the wooden TV look even worse than my noise-filled farmhouse free-craigslist setup. B137 (talk) 17:05, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
