if your boy was such a great editor what? was he off on the day you guys allowed somebody to post nonsense about my team on their page or did he just forget how to read that particular day? sure didnt take him long to change my edits did it... — Preceding unsigned comment added by SYDEWAZE (talkcontribs) 02:48, 20 August 2017 (UTC)


Hey Dude! May I ask why you removed the picture of this place which I added couple of hours ago

Redirect Vandal[edit]

Could you look at User_talk:Hotandminty if you are online? They are vandalizing Rick's talk page. Dolotta (talk) 07:15, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Dolotta: Already reported at WP:AIV. Eagleash (talk) 07:25, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
Dolotta - Oh dang, that guy was persistent lol. Sorry I was late to the party; looks like it was already taken care of. Do let me know if you need me to step in on things like this and I'll be happy to :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:35, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Rene Rivera Catcher for the Cubs[edit]

Rene Rivera was claimed off waivers from the Mets by the cubs.

He's starting for the Cubs today. Someone needs to chanhe that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:387:8:11:0:0:0:63 (talk) 15:23, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Gerald R Ford Intl Airport[edit]

Just delete my addition and I will be content with that outcome. That was my addition (done 8/7) so just delete it. But there should be a space in the second paragraph between the words became and Kent. Have a good evening. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:581:8501:870E:304C:CD3D:3958:6A95 (talk) 22:55, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Fixed :-). You're more than welcome to edit the page! I will never discourage you from being bold - that's a core Wikipedia principle and it's important to us! If you need assistance with editing the page, please do not hesitate to ask me and I'll be glad to help you :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 23:38, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

You said I vandalized a page.[edit]

I edited the feminazi page saying that [REDACTED] - Oshwah. I was in no way vandilizing. Maybe add to the page that the feminazis are power hungry extremists instead? Thanks. Anti-SJW (talk) 23:23, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) You will want to read WP:NOTAFORUM. There are plenty of places on the web where you can rant. Wikipedia is not one of them. I know you may need to R/D this whole thread Oshwah and that is fine by me. MarnetteD|Talk 23:28, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
Oshwah, you may have thanked me too quickly. Take a look at the contributions from the trash and the contributions for Anti-SJW.  — Myk Streja (beep) 20:27, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Gerald R Ford Intl Airport[edit]

You are in disagreement with my original addition. I have been a responsible Wikipedia editor and contributor for 7 years and I can tell you my original addition was 100 percent correct and I stand by it. I have made additions like this many times as I said. I know a little about airports. I like making additions and edits but if you are in disagreement with what I originally entered then just delete it, simple as that and call it a day. There is plenty out there for me to edit and add. But it was interesting as this is the first time I used the talk page on Wikipedia. So it was nice talking to you and have a good night. (The comment below is not me). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:581:8501:870E:304C:CD3D:3958:6A95 (talk) 23:56, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Can you guys fix your website many things are wrong also the Wikipedia grammar is crap — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:59, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

Your recent block of User:TheJimmyFund[edit]

Hello. I'd like to make a comment with regards to your block on this user for "Vandalism and incivility." I couldn't help but notice after seeing the edit this user made on Super Mario Odyssey that the username might also be a violation of the username policy as it closely matches the organization of the same name based in New England and implies usage by the group, even though it wasn't. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 00:18, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi jd22292! Interesting find... you might be right. The account is indefinitely blocked; I don't think we'll need to worry about it editing anymore ;-). The username from the get-go reads suspiciously like an organization or fund; I didn't bother looking due to the fact that I was blocking the account indefinitely for other violations. However, I really appreciate your observation and for giving me a heads up. Please do not hesitate to message me if you think I may have missed something somewhere - I'll definitely be happy and appreciative to have it brought to my attention. Have a great rest of your weekend! :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 00:27, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Quick question[edit]

Hey Oshwah, hope you're well. Could you please email me? My email is on my user page.

I see you've worked on 21 Savage’s Wikipedia and had a question I wanted to discuss. Thanks!

CMCreator900 (talk) 00:25, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi CMCreator900! If you need to discuss something that's confidential or you feel must be kept private, please feel free to email me by clicking on "Email this user" on the left side while on my user or talk page, or by clicking Special:EmailUser/Oshwah here. I'll receive your inquiry immediately and respond back to you. Cheers :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 00:28, 21 August 2017 (UTC)


I recently edited the Strait of Malacca page and got I trouble. What I edited and added really happened, 2 ships collided. I don't see how it's unverified but please help me find how to source stuff. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2013AtlantaBraves (talkcontribs) 00:32, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Your edit was fine, 2013AtlantaBraves. The reversion I made on the page was in error, and I apologize for that. I've removed the warning left on your talk page and restored the content you added. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns and I'll be happy to assist you. Have a great weekend, and happy editing! :-D ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 00:35, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Careless reverting[edit]

You undid an edit of mine just now, not even a minute after I made it, accusing me of "Failure to cite a reliable source". Clearly, you did not even look at my edit. If you did, you did not understand it. I reworded a couple of sentences. One does not need to cite a reliable source to reword a sentence.

I trust that you will take more care in the future and revert edits only if necessary and only when you have properly understood them. (talk) 01:04, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

I actually did read the content you changed here to Turbine engine failure, but I just now realized what you were actually changing. You had added quotes to the sentence and I thought you were implying that people have actually described the engines as "contained" or "uncontained" and thinking this was an opinion. Looking at the terms, these are clearly defined and not something people just call them. Please accept my sincere apologies for the mistake on my part. I want to assure you that I read the changes you made; I just incorrectly interpreted what was stated to be based off different assumptions. Please let me know if you have any questions or additional concerns, and I'll be happy to help you. Thanks for messaging me and giving me a heads up about this. I very much appreciate it :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 02:19, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Ironclad edit warring again[edit]

See here. Still no new consensus change on talk page to support changes. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 01:53, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

BilCat - When you attempt to communicate with this user and voice your concerns, what do they say to you in response? ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 02:38, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm not the main person doing the communicating on this one. The discussion is on the article's talk page at Talk:Ironclad warship#Turtle ship again. Frankly, when someone starts there argument with "Strongly Disagree, what you are proposing is disrespectful and degrading to the accomplishments and technological innovation of the Chinese and Korean engineers", I stay out of it as much as possible. - BilCat (talk) 02:49, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
HA! I don't blame you one bit. Keep an eye on things and let me know if the edit warring continues, and I'll see if it might be time for me to step in again :-P. Thanks again for messaging me and letting me know about things. I only have two eyes and 10 fingers, and its extremely helpful when editors such as yourself keep me informed and let me know where I need to go take a look at something. Cheers :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 03:07, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

It was testing[edit]

As I'm Farley new to wiki a curious little chump must try something also will I get a ban if I do this repeatedly or go to jail? XDXDXD — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sugarcake997 (talkcontribs) 02:33, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Taking down my edit[edit]

Hi Oshwah. You recently took down my edit on 4/20 being consisdered a holiday at South Kitsap High school. I can tell you through my ecperience from going to this school, that kids actaully take this day off because it's considered a holiday. Please don't take it down, it's true. :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Shrek1slove69 (talkcontribs) 03:03, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Shrek1slove69! Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your message! Sorry, but adding content citing your personal experience, relationship, or association with the article subject, or even citing your own published work - constitutes original research, which isn't allowed on Wikipedia. You can also call it "citing yourself". This is not allowed because such content cannot be verified for authenticity or accuracy. Please let me know if you have any questions about this policy and I'll be happy answer them. Thanks again for the message, and I appreciate your understanding :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 03:12, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Sorry 😐[edit]

Didn't know that I wasn't supposed to keep that information

Sorry Lilypad123456 (talk) 05:24, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Am i an idiot??[edit]

Say yes or no Lilypad123456 (talk) 05:25, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Very odd[edit]

Any clue what Special:Contributions/ is doing today? It looks like billing information of some sort, but probably not something we want to keep in the edit history. - BilCat (talk) 09:25, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

BilCat - Looks like edit testing maybe? I've warned the IP for this. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:39, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Also, I was concerned about whether apparent names and phone numbers should be kept in the history. -c (talk) 09:40, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
BilCat - Taking a look now. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:43, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
BilCat - Poof! They are gone. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:46, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks again. - BilCat (talk) 09:47, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Not here[edit]

You may be interested in this editor also. They left messages at your TP earlier (which BilCat got). Have been warned and seems to have stopped in the last half-hour or so. Thanks. Eagleash (talk) 09:48, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Eagleash - Yeah... that's why I didn't block it. Half the edits were messages on my talk page (meh, whatever); and the user stopped vandalizing articles - so I'm holding off till I see it start up again. Let me know if it does and I'll be happy to check it out. Good to talk to you, Eagleash. Hope you had a good weekend. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 09:53, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! I'm keeping an eye out. Whilst I'm here, am I right in thinking that there's something about removing block notices from TPs whilst the block is in force? Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 17:37, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Eagleash - Users can remove warnings and block notices from their own talk pages, but they cannot remove declined unblock requests from it. See this section of the user talk page guideline for the other items users cannot remove from their own talk pages. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 18:01, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks; that must be I was thinking of...and I could not find the guideline! Eagleash (talk) 18:04, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Eagleash - No problem. It's not the easiest guideline to find, and I honestly think that's the reason why many users don't know it well. I see experienced editors and vandal fighters restoring warnings back on other users' talk pages fairly often, and have to message them and let them know about that guideline section :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 18:07, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I can remember about removing warnings from own TPs (our erstwhile IP hopping disruptive ed. did it all the time!) ... it was the block thing I was unsure of. Cheers. Eagleash (talk) 18:12, 21 August 2017 (UTC)


The information that i added is genuine — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mahira Khan (talkcontribs) 10:58, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Mahira Khan - Yeah... sorry about that. I looked at the article history and you were correct. The subject's birthdate was changed without a reference and you were fixing it. Thanks for the message and I apologize for the confusion. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 11:01, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Article protection log[edit]

Hi, thanks for your protection of Islamic terrorism in Europe (2014–present). Since the article is under WP:GS/SCW&ISIL sanctions regime - perhaps it would be suitable to mention increasing protection level at Wikipedia:General sanctions/Syrian Civil War and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant#2017. Thanks.GreyShark (dibra) 12:07, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi oswah[edit]

The Vegas page doesn't have any citations at all nor it complies with Wikipedia's form of articles. Please check it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:17, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Then why are you adding things such as this and this to the article? Because the article lacks references and citations where it should have them doesn't mean that you should add more unreferenced content... ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 12:21, 21 August 2017 (UTC)


I believe my change to the article Easter egg (media) is justified. My idea was to congratulate people who were curious to look at the out of place image. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:45, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Abhinav Bharat Edits[edit]

The entry I tried to edit is not based on facts. Where does wikis responsibility lie with respect to verifying content thats put on the page. Do I have the option of reporting it somewhere for abuse? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stutimenon (talkcontribs) 18:29, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Total Eclipse[edit]

This is to Oshwah and any TPWs that care to answer, the more the merrier:

In the article 2017, a narrow group of editors keep removing references to the total eclipse claiming it only affects the US. There is a discussion on Talk:2017#Eclipse, but the consensus is being ignored. If I were to start an RfC, should I start a new topic, or can I co-opt the existing discussion? Or should I just ignore the whole thing?  — Myk Streja (beep) 19:30, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Myk_Streja - If there's already a talk page discussion over the very same thing, I'd continue from it. Just make sure to ping those involved so they know to go there and respond :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 19:39, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi there,

I'm changing the page for Gemma Morris, thanks for your message. I'm actually Gemma's husband and am sat with her trying to figure out how to make Wiki changes.

I've figured most of it out but do you know how to change the page name from Morris to Evans?

I'll re-do and add the citations.

Creating a page[edit]

Please reconsider the removal of an external link I added - it fits 100% and abides by the guidelines[edit]

Hey Oshwah, I don't see why you automatically removed the link I added to a large list (3,000+) of animal shelters in the United States. I think it's entirely appropriate to this article and very useful to its readers. Please consider bringing it back. I know you are working hard to fight spam, but this is very frustrating when you want to add something that is of value. Thanks (talk) 20:54, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
