Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:23, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, please note that there is a Manual of Style that should be followed to maintain a consistent, encyclopedic appearance. Deviating from this style, as you did in Life Is Good (Nas album), disturbs uniformity among articles and may cause readability or accessibility problems.

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to use disruptive, inappropriate or hard-to-read formatting, as you did at P.M. Dawn, you may be blocked from editing.

Editing track listings[edit]

When editing track listings of any album, please make sure that you check after your edit is complete that you have not inserted extra empty parameters (extra1, note1, and so on) and messed up formatting by using VisualEditor, as a number of your recent edits have. When separating songs in track listing sections, length should always come last, after writers and extra columns. Please adhere to this, as it is Wikipedia standard. Thank you.

July 2016[edit]

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing for persistent disruptive editing. 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 to the bottom of your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Laser brain (talk) 21:55, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry to have to perform this block, but I see requests going back three years for you to stop making pointless and disruptive edits like incorrect style changes and introducing extra fields into templates. You have not once bothered to respond or communicate with your fellow editors, which is a requirement for editing here. An unblock request will be considered when you show the ability and willingness to communicate and address the concerns presented here on your Talk page. --Laser brain (talk) 21:58, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Request reason:

Okay, I do indeed have to apologize for this behavior of mine. I just usually edit a page to make more, say, "presentable", if you will, and I usually apply it to certain pages. The reason for my not talking to the other people who complained about the editing I was doing was because:

1. I was too naive to think it would affect me this way.

2. I didn't know how to actually respond to them, exactly. I'm not even sure if I'm doing this response right and if you're actually going to see this.


I mainly edit track listings under mostly compilation albums, but also studio and live albums, too. I've encountered many pages with hardly anything put into them except the basic information, and the song titles don't even have quotations between them (some even were in italics, like I just fixed with Are You Experienced? under the track listing. Not going to lie, I have indeed been here for a few years, and yet I still don't know the "in's and out's" of the rules here and when it's appropriate to edit a page or not. I also forgot to mention that I mainly edit to "finetune" the information presented, such as finishing fragments, upgrading the track listing format, and include quotations and italics when appropriate, etc. Again, I'm sorry about what looks like my insane editing speed. (I sometimes edit multiple pages at once, alternating which ones to edit at what times). If there's a way I can improve my craft here, let me know, and teach me how to respectfully and responsibly edit here on Wikipedia (if not you, then I'm fine with someone else). If you still don't understand...well, I'm screwed until who knows when.

Sincerely,

Progrockdude.

Decline reason:

It is not enough just to acknowledge your wrongdoings, you have to convince us that you are willing to change your behavior if unblocked. If you make new unblock request, be sure to show us your intention not to continue the same way. Vanjagenije (talk) 14:24, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Well, OK, this is a start. You've explained why you didn't respond to anyone. But can you please explain why you've ignored the advice you've been given about paying attention to the Manual of Style, using edit summaries, not introducing extraneous parameters, and so on? Finetuning a page doesn't help us much if you introduce other errors at the same time. Your editing speed means you are being careless and not paying attention to what you're doing. To me you are saying you can't be bothered to pay attention to detail, which means you can't be allowed to edit. --Laser brain (talk) 22:28, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Ah yes...I'm one lazy guy. Yep. There is your reason for ignoring the advice given to me. I just felt like, since, well, I was still in middle school going into high school (I think this alone speaks volumes for you) there's not enough for me to go through the whole manual. You've also got an excellent point regarding my speed, too, as well as the errors coming from my finetuning (which I sometimes struggle with myself to see if it looks right or now, and other times I undo what I did earlier on the same page (at least from what I can recall. My memory's a bit hazy in regards to this stuff.) However, I could've put in the time in regards to the edit summaries, too, which is a shame now that I think about it. Oh yeah, and the extraneous parameters: I have a feeling I heard that term somewhere before, but I can't remember (if at all), which also goes along with not bothering to read the whole thing (I usually prefer to read things along in the same day, which is the main factor in said laziness).

...well shoot. I guess I'm done for, eh?}}

I wouldn't say you're "done for", but so far, to be blunt, you haven't said anything that convinces me you intend to learn to edit by our rules and guidelines. No one expects you to read the entire Manual of Style, but you should review the portions relevant to the types of edits you're making, especially after people point out issues to you. If you carry on essentially saying "Thanks for the note but I can't be bothered to pay attention to what I'm doing" then I'm not sure why we would want you editing here. --Laser brain (talk) 12:12, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Cool to know, good sir!!


...okay, I see my email address has been unsubscribed because of the many email delivery the sender ensured, and I should've expected as such, to be honest. Why? Because...ugh, it was deleted since supposedly it was involved with some anonymous person who was guiding me through something, which led to the computer being contacted with a big virus (and the whole paranoia that ensued with my mother, going all "conspiracy theorist" on this stuff and such). So, that means I may need to sign up for a new account so I can actually contact the emails I've supposedly been getting. Is there any other problems involved that I'm missing out on, exactly, before I do anything else?

You weren't sent emails. Everything you were told is here on this page. Have you ever so much as looked at this page before you were blocked? --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 00:59, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

No, I looked at the messages I've gotten, but I keep brushing off the notices I've been getting on pages others feel like it should stay the way it should be (NOTE: This is just my observation. There may be other factors I haven't even noticed when they're undoing the edits I've done to a particular page(s)). However, I was still just naive to see this even coming. I guess I was not one to interact a lot since I still didn't know how it worked and such.
