March 14/15/2014[edit]

Would you like to stop vandalizing wikipedia?, it destroys the filipino and the country's reputation. I work on behalf of the Spanish embassy in Manila and your stubbornness result's the foreign people's bad oppinnion towards the philippine people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.174.240.211 (talk) 15:52, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

First off, you can't even type in proper English. Second of all, it is you who is "opinionating" the article by filling it up with Mestizo Catholic priests, whereas I actually took the time to include notable natives from all regions of the Philippines, and yes that includes the Moro regions. Third of all, I am Filipino American and have been years into World History, and yes that includes Philippine history (among others including Arab, Spanish, Malay, Eastern European). So quit it with this nonsense, or else I will request to issue a block against your account. Other people have already seen your unnecessary edits. If you really do work for the Spanish embassy in the Philippines, it seems obvious to me that are trying to force a "pro-Hispanic" gimmick to the mosaic. It is very simply, I just revert your edits and it's DONE. I will keep doing it, unless you actually keep doing something that's productive and helpful. There is a talk page for the Filipino people, go express your problems there. You come from an un-registered account and an IP account, which probably destroys your validity. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 16:44, 14 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
hey! listen! All the people I contribute to the Filipino category are Filipinos of Spanish descent, the important thing is we have an example of Authentic Filipinos and not only the native people of the country who revolted against the Spanish empire, the Spanish history accounts doesn't include Asians as Filipinos, the History of the Philippines or Filipino people never accounts "Indios", their only part of the history is after the independence, Their history begins on the Philippines republic, they don't have any accounts in Spain, and the Philippines history. The King of Spain is going to read your messages and this article, so you better stop your stupidity. code name: amor — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.174.240.211 (talk) 18:33, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Now that you are mentioning the King of Spain, I can see that an obvious troll is an obvious troll and I shall now report you to Wikipedia. Yes, and the Sultan of Brunei is going to "read your messages". I can see that all that Filipinos you are including are all Mestizos, duh....and that's a problem. This article is about natives of the Philippines, NOT Catholic Mestizos. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 18:49, 14 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
Oh yeah, and you are impersonating an embassy worker. I would quit that nonsense if were you.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 19:05, 14 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
the people of the Philippines are unbelievably stupid, maybe you should clean this country because it's a paradise.

Of course it is! Thank for you for your insult, now I shall report you to the administrators at once.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 03:31, 19 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

You are disrespecting Wikipedia by making edits without summaries and sending me useless personal attacks.

March 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Slavic peoples. When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. AFAIK, you're aware of the talk page discussion going on about the undue weight towards some groups, and the frivolity of some of the inclusions on the gallery. Please use the talk page rather than reverting to the disputed version, which could constitute a display of article ownership. Львівське (говорити) 20:03, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Slavic peoples[edit]

Please do not attack other editors, as you did at Talk:Slavic peoples. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing. Thank you.

Please stop making edits which do not reflect established consensus that has been discussed at the article's talk page. Such edits may constitute vandalism and can result in the loss of your editing privileges. Please discuss controversial edits on the talk page. Thank you. --Eleassar my talk 20:10, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

This is your last warning. The next time you make personal attacks on other people, as you did at Slavic peoples, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Comment on content, not on fellow editors. You know how you're behaving. [1], [2], [3] and [4]. Cut it. Львівське (говорити) 20:16, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Vandalism? How are any of my edits vandalism? I am simply, reverting edits back to my original version. I'm simply sick of people messing with my infobox, nothing more. I told people, to tell me if they wanted to edit my infobox, but people just went ahead and started deleting and replacing stuff. I don't appreciate that. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 05:56, 25 March 2012 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
It isn't your infobox. Reverting consensus for the sake of self proclaimed ownership is disruptive editing, and can be construed as vandalism.--Львівське (говорити) 06:10, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
I created it. ME. Before this, there was NO infobox. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 06:38, 25 March 2012 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
That's fantastic.--Львівське (говорити) 00:03, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
I know it's fantastic! My creation! MY OWN. You know nothing. На Владимир (talk) 02:31, 8 April 2012 (UTC)НаВладимир!
You know what, you're using a comment that's a month old as an example. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 06:49, 25 March 2012 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
From the same talk page, you should have been called on it earlier, and you've shown a trend here. There isn't a statute of limitations on this.--Львівське (говорити) 00:03, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Called what on earlier!? A trend of what? I'm not the one posting blasphemous crap. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 05:11, 26 March 2012 (UTC)На Владимир
Your personal attacks and lack of civility. And no, the only one posting "blasphemous crap" is you so far. -Львівське (говорити) 05:16, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
Well I lost my civility long ago! Because people like you proved that you don't deserve my civility! Don't even start with this whole "You can't lose what you never had" BS because I'm out of it.

Replaceable fair use File:Brian Viloria.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Brian Viloria.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 07:58, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Marking edits as minor[edit]

I noticed that you marked several of your recent edits as minor. I realise they may seem quite minor and obvious to you, but just as one editor to another, may I recommend that you read WP:MINOR and mark a lot less of your edits as minor? The basic principle is that we shouldn't mark an edit as minor if it changes the meaning. Removing content, such as mentions of this or that religion in an article on a particular people, may well be an improvement and may not seem contentious, but it's not something for which we use the "minor" mark. NebY (talk) 17:16, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

Listen, I'm into many languages. When it comes to figures of such ethnicities and religions, I simply add one or two translations that I feel is necessarry, that I MAKE SURE doesn't harm the article's meaning. Not to mention that I go around correcting articles such as Kapampangans and Ilocanos because some of the information about the religions are just completely unsourced. So quite frankly, yes I am doing "minor" edits. You need to specify which articles you are being diva-ing me about, I'm only human and I can't remember every single edit that I do.

Thanks for uploading File:East Asia mosaic.jpg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from, who created it, or what the copyright status is.

Mizrahi Jews[edit]

You unilaterally made a huge change to the infobox by significantly enlarging the number of people. I reverted you, indicating in the edit summary that you should first obtain consensus. What word didn't you understand, first or consensus? Debresser (talk) 18:10, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

You did not mention consensus, I checked it. I added an extended people, ranging from the Israeli society's reference of "Mizrahi" (as those who come from Arab and Muslim nations, with the exception of Maghrebi Jews), as well as the overall definition as those Jews who come from the Far East, such as Central Asia. You're reverting to an old crappy and unorganized mosaic that shows like four or five that nobody knows about, save for Ovadia Yosef and Paula Abdul. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 19:06, 15 April 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

Nope, I have been using Wikipedia for about two years now, and am very familiar with how infoboxes work. I am reverting the other user's edits, because he is being biased as to who goes into the infobox and does not seem to have a full knowledge of Filipino history.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 13:51, 14 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

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. The thread is Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:PacificWarrior101 reported by User:G S Palmer (Result: ). Thank you. G S Palmer (talk) 19:37, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry to do this, but both of you are well past the three-revert limit. G S Palmer (talk) 19:44, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
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 Filipino people. 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 adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

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.  Atama 21:08, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Just a note[edit]

Hey PacificWarrior, just wanted to give a bit of advice outside the context of ANI. I know dealing with people like that makes things hard. Just keep in mind that you shouldn't indulge in edit warring in cases like this; the edits the IP is making aren't bright-line vandalism, or as far as I can tell otherwise exempted from the edit warring policy. So to go back to the same revert patterns right after coming off a block or warning for the same is likely to just result in a longer block.

I don't personally think a reblock is merited in your case at least in part because of the surrounding circumstances (i.e., the personal attacks). While you shouldn't let yourself be goaded into edit-warring even more, I think in light of what was being said some leniency is reasonable. Feel free to let me know if you run into further problems with this issue. While I'm not an admin, I'd be happy to help out however I can. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 13:18, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Also, I saw that you added a response to the old, archived thread at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive840. I reverted that response since it was to an archived thread... you really aren't supposed to add responses to archived threads. While minor corrections or clarifications may be appropriate at times, substantive responses in archives are in my experience highly discouraged. —/Mendaliv//Δ's/ 13:27, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Hey, sorry, I accidentally blocked you PacificWarrior while trying to block the IP. Too many windows open at once, etc. I unblocked you right away with a note that the previous block was by accident so it shouldn't count against you. In any case, the IP is blocked for a week. I'm hoping that they'll either go away from the project or at least move on to something else that doesn't cause them conflict with another editor. Basically I'm hoping that they'll get bored and find someplace else to troll people. -- Atama 15:30, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Also, just an FYI, this comment on the article's talk page was technically a personal attack, I know it was made a long time ago (two weeks ago) but please try to make sure that you don't do that. That may have egged on the IP to start trolling you in the first place. The cleaner you keep your actions and comments, the easier it is to make a case against editors you come into conflict with. And it reduces the chances for conflict to start in the first place. Also, you did resume edit-warring again at the Filipino people article, and though you didn't breach 3RR this time it still wasn't a good idea (for the same reason, you don't want to be engaging in the same breaches of policy that the other editor is doing). -- Atama 15:36, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I did make a couple more edits, simply changing a few images here and there. Things any Wikipedia editor would do to an article. As for as the IP user continuing, we shall see in one week.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 16:49, 19 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
Thanks for the help. I'm not "trying" to edit war, I was just making a couple changes to the infobox mosaic, I had a few constructive images, I did make sure that I didn't three-vert again but I did read rules regarding trying to "game" the season, that's not what I'm trying to do which is why I simply stopped after the first revert in the post-block situation. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 16:20, 19 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
Your new section on the article talk page was a good one. I have no reservations about blocking just the IP and not you, because you are sincerely trying. The IP clearly isn't. -- Atama 17:23, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Indeed. Again, thanks for the help. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 18:13, 19 May 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

Shawn Marion[edit]

Shawn Marion has not officially signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers. If you see here, it states "Shawn Marion To Sign With Cavs". The Cavaliers have not announced anything about his signing, he is not listed on their roster nor has anything been mention here. Just be patient; now the Cavs have acquired Kevin Love, the signing will likely be announced soon. DaHuzyBru (talk) 10:36, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Note that all your references you provided state similar things: this states "to sign contract" and this states "To Join Cavs". It's just a rumor at the moment, no deal has been made yet. DaHuzyBru (talk) 10:39, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Alright I see. You should also remove part of the section on the Cleveland Cavaliers article about Shawn Marion, because those editors in that article are already acting like the Cavs signed Marion.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 01:00, 27 August 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
I would, but whoever added that did word it as "it was reported that the Cavs had signed", not "the Cavs signed" so that's alright. Thanks for your understanding. DaHuzyBru (talk) 08:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Belarusians,[edit]

Hi,

I don't oppose all of your ideas for the collage and actually support most of them, but regardless of it, by Wikipedia procedures you must have a discussion on the talk page of Belarusians before any change you want to make.

Kamusta ka na[edit]

My dear friend, User:PacificWarrior101, I have seen your edits on the Yemenite Jews main article, and being an Israeli citizen and related to the Yemenites, I find it very offensive that you will insist on placing a photograph of a male-made-female on the page which should otherwise have the intent of capturing the general essence of the Yemenites, rather than some idiosyncrasy and one that will cause general shame to the Yemenite Jewish community in Israel. Your choice of this photo shows "bad taste" and inconsideration for the feelings of others. The photo that you wish to show conjures up shame in the minds of the vast majority of Yemenite Jews here, in Israel, and is tantamount to placing a photo of a notorious person (e.g. killer) on the main page dealing with ethnicity. One simply does not bring out the bad side of a society. If you wish to mention the person in the Main article, you may do so - where appropriate. I hope you can understand our sensitivities. Be well.Davidbena (talk) 06:27, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't matter "how hated" or "ruthless" one person may seem. Unless you can give me, a legal or Wikipedia-related reason (such as image copyright issues) there is no need to be deleting famous Israeli singers because of some religious opposition. I too, a conservative American (of Filipino descent) am opposed to homosexuality and for this case, trans-gender change. Look at the article about Georgians and it shows Joseph Stalin on their infobox and look at the Austrians article it shows a picture of Adolf Hitler and there are obviously people probably complaining about how ruthless they were, because they were. Neutrality does best, and you simply cannot delete people because they piss you off.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 06:56, 29 September 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101
It's called insensitivity. People view the Yemenite Jews page to feel proud of their ancestral heritage, but you decide to make them feel ashamed. There are far better photos. Editors must be considerate. You would never put up a notorious serial killer, as an example, on a main article page that speaks in general terms about ethnicity. The only place for recalcitrance is with the administrators. You have thus far shown total disrespect for people's feelings.Davidbena (talk) 12:23, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

What are you smoking? It's Dana is already down in the infobox.PacificWarrior101 (talk) 00:03, 1 October 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

Question[edit]

Hi, Pacific Warrior. In our current discussion on the Yemenite Jews Talk page, can you agree on a compromise that will have Dana's photo placed deeper down in the article, rather than at the very top in the collage?Davidbena (talk) 19:23, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Arabs infobox[edit]

Hello Pacific Warrior, the arguments that you are making for the Arabs infobox, are essentially, very subjective. My reasons for including Marrash and Al-Himsi are the following: 1) Both made undeniably important contributions to the Arab world. 2) The Arabs hail from different backgrounds and religions, it is a noble thing to keep the infobox as diverse as possible. 3) I don't understand why you insist on categorizing Arabs based on their religious affiliations and their accomplishments. If you look at pages such as the American people, no one is making arguments that "there could only be 2 Hispanic-Americans" in the infobox, there is no Wikipedia rule that states such a thing. 4) I wholly agree that the 3 Arabs you mentioned are just as worthy of being placed in the infobox, however I don't see why they have to be added per se, just because the other two are there. Look, Wikipedia is a community based project, that receives input from other editors, therefore the Arabs infobox is not subject to the ideas of only one editor. Therefore, I kindly ask you from refraining from removing the two Arabs I have placed, and you are free from adding those who you feel are representative of this large world. This reverting business doesn't make sense. If you remove them again, then I have no choice but to take this to the notice board, because I clearly don't agree with your reasons for removing the said people.George Al-Shami (talk) 21:55, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Nobody is opinionating anything. That was the consensus decision to include ONE representative from each Arab state because much like you, I had tried adding many good Arabs but they were reverted as well.

Nobody is categorizing anything. John of Damascus was an early Christian saint and Asmahan was a Syrian Druze, that seems pretty diverse to me. Still, as significant as Marrash and al-Himsi were, much of their contributions is confined to Syrian history. Also, there is Philip the Arab who was a Pagan (some say an early Christian convert) and the Queen of Sheba, who was a pagan and then a convert to Judaism (according to Islamic sources). Personally, I don't believe Queen of Sheba was even an Arab, as she was an Ethiopian or didn't exist at all, but I don't delete that.

As for your argument, "Both made undeniably important contributions to the Arab world", I don't doubt that but I already have stated that countless numbers of Arab poets and literary figures are labeled with this, being "greatest" or "most influential". In fact, almost all Al-Nahda members made contributions, we can't add them all that would expand the infobox to well over 40 people.

Just so you know, I'm not the one who decided this "22 people" limit thing. PacificWarrior101 (talk) 04:35, 31 October 2014 (UTC)PacificWarrior101

I looked at the archived talk pages, and I didn't see a consensus on how large the infobox should be or if there should be one representative per country, rather I saw how contentious this very subject is. Look, I'm open to compromise, I insist on Marrash being kept, because she wrote in books and in newspapers that were most likely read outside the historical borders of Syria. She is a female Arab writer in a time when the majority of men could not read and write, that in itself is extremely significant.

I support the current 5x5 format and thus there should be 25 images, to keep the appearance of the infobox, as aesthetically pleasing to the eye as possible. The infobox doesn't look nice with 22 images and 3 slots missing.

Take the conversation back to the talk page and let me know who you insist should be there in the infobox.George Al-Shami (talk) 03:54, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

By the way I have no problem with John of Damascus and Asmahan, if you want to replace Al-Himsi with Asmahan that is fine by me, as long as you keep Marrash, and you could add John of Damascus by removing somebody else. Just, please, don't put back Saddam Hussein, that's not a nice man :) You're not going to find Hitler in the Germans infobox.George Al-Shami (talk) 04:02, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

December 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Arab citizens of Israel 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.
As you have been informed in the above warning, this article, like all articles related to the Israel-Palestine conflict, is subject to a special one-revert rule. You have just breached this with your latest edit, and I advise you to revert it yourself before you are reported to the Arbitration Enforcement noticeboard.

Israeli Jews[edit]

I reverted the changes you did with Israeli Jews collage. I understand you were trying to contribute and came up with ideas you thought were good, but in order to make any changes you must suggest them on the talk page and wait for a discussion. The people in the collage were established by a long discussion and consensus, and to change that you need to achieve a consensus.

I will explain why some of the changes you made are impossible:

  • Omri Casspi is completely useless for the collage. We already have Yossi Benayoun to represent sports, so why do we need Casspi as well? And Benayoun is Mizrahi, which is important for representation.
  • Also, who did you remove for Casspi? Ephraim Kishon, the greatest Israeli director ever and one of the greatest Israeli writers, twice nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and three times for a Golden Globe Award (he won two Golden Globe Best Foreign Language Film Awards). And you deleted him for Omri Casspi? Pardon me, but how does that make any sense?
  • Aaron Ciechanover instead of Robert Aumann. Why? Ciechanover is not adding anything to the collage as we already have a scientist, Ada Yonath. ANd unlike him, Ada Yonath is a female, which is good for representation. Unlike Ciechanover, who is certainly notable but unknown for most Israelis, Aumann is a famous figure thanks to his speeches on politics. Also, he is important as he represents the religious people.
  • Removing Achinoam Nini for Bar Rafaeli. Achinoam Nini is Mizrahi and female, which is good for representation, and had achieved more international success than any other Israeli singer. Bar Rafaeli, an Ashkenazi, damages the Ashkenazi-Mizrahi Balance and to be fair her nomination was declined in the past for simply not adding anything to the collage.
  • Removing Shai Agassi is not good for the Mizrahi-Ashkenazi balance.
  • Abie Nathan is important for the Ashkenazi-Mizrahi balance. Also, Shimon Peres said of him: "He was one of the most prominent and special people in the country... He is the man who dedicated his life for other people and for a better humanity."
  • I agree Ilan Ramon is good for the collage but you can't just add him, you need to do it through the talk page. In any case, removing Yitzhak Kaduri is certainly a bad idea as he is the only representative of Charedis and he is Mizrahi. He is also the only rabbi on the collage. I don't think we need any more, but one is needed.

Please take this as constructive criticism and not in a negative way. Whatever change you want to do, run it through the talk page first. The current collage was established after a long discussion full of compromises and changes, please make sure to continue the same way. 90.212.48.112 (talk) 15:20, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
