Excessive number of sources[edit]

Hello. Your search for numerous sources is quite laudable. But I think there is actually a problem with a too large number of sources you provide too rapidly, without checking their accuracy. May I recall that when you provide a source, you are supposed to have carefully read and understood it. But you flood some articles with heteroclit links (which include blogs, advertisements, and other un-encyclopedic material), which you apparently find with a search by keywords, and from which you infer inappropriate and even absurd deductions (as you did in your contribution to Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin which I reverted). The links you find are sometimes not even accessible, you yourself didn't read them, and there is no way to check they are really appropriate. As in Venatio where you provided 31 additional links to the existing one which was quite sufficient. I think your attitude is quite counter productive.Sapphorain (talk) 22:28, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

I have found the same problems mentioned by Sapphorain. Two articles you have edited recently, Mark Twain and Cuisine of the Southern United States. I have reverted your edits in these two articles. In the Mark Twain article you created a new subsection with a single sentence: 'Coon, possum, partridges, prairie hen, and frogs were among the fare Twain recorded as part of American cuisine.', followed by eleven citations (4,000 characters). The citations were as described by Sapphorain, and the sentence did not really belong in the higher level section Views since the sentence was just a list of foods mentioned by Twain. In the cuisine article you inserted ten sentences under the subsection Lowcountry cuisine that were not specific to the subsection or the article (one sentence was 'Jimmy Carter killed opossums.'). Another sentence had fifteen cites; the total number of cites was near fifty, amounting to 10,000 characters. Again the cites were all URLs for the results of key word searches. Please take more care with your edits. Have concern for the time and effort contributed to Wikipedia articles by editors who find WP:RS, read the material, and then make appropriate additions. Have a concern for readers of Wikipedia. — Neonorange (talk) 08:43, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Not reading the sources is one thing that I did not do. The text from Limited preview on google books is accessible in the original search. I read the references before using them since they supported the content.

Pan's travail: environmental problems of the ancient Greeks and Romans Johnson Donald Hughes - 1994 - ‎Snippet view - ‎More editions

Soon afterward, Pom- pey had 20 elephants and 600 lions killed by armed Gaetulians. ... At the dedication of the Colosseum under Titus, 9,000 animals were destroyed in 100 days, and Trajan's conquest over Dacia in a d 107 was celebrated ...
Every sentence that was made which was referenced, was referenced with a RS source and if there were any non RS sources tacked on after that they could be removed with the RS and content still remaining with nothing deleted. I find some of the RS sources after finding them from the blogs and looking them up.
The complaint here is really about WP:CITECLUTTER and human error in misreading the source for Brillat-Savarin. I stopped adding extra cites but you could easily delete extra citations without mass reverts. Jimmy Carter hunted opossums for food and its part of lowcountry cuisine.
I just deleted a list of extra cites I added from Edible dormouse and left two RS citations. It doesn't require a mass revert to deal with.Rajmaan (talk) 22:04, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
You don't seem to understand that stuffing excessively cited factoids into articles degrades the encyclopedia. It calls into question whether you are here to build an encyclopedia. — Neonorange (talk) 22:40, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
  • It is disruptive and dumping that many of them may be borderline vandalism... even if they are legitimate citations. I'm the only one that did a semi-mass-revert but it was for slightly different reasons; also because if I've to click every section anyway, it's easier to just revert and have pristine version immediately that can be patched and added on to. -- dsprc [talk] 23:29, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Anyway I cleaned some of them up. I think for short simple lines only a few are needed but for complex matters many might be permissible (just not a metric tonne of them). You can group multiple references into a single inline citation; usually this is best done by sorting them vertically and encapsulating with a single <ref> tag. Something like:
* {{cite web|}}
* {{cite web| //}}
* {{cite web| http://invalid.invalid}}
Or whatever, can work fine for those purposes and keep the clutter down. It's hackish but it gets the job done. In general please try to use as few as possible, however. (it is very annoying) -- dsprc [talk] 01:30, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
@Rajmann: The inserts you defend: you have not understood the sources nor the article. The Jimmy Carter sentence you mention. The lowcountry is in the U.S. state of South Carolina, not the U.S. state of Georgia where Jimmiy Carter grew up and now lives. Blogs are not WP:RS; just because you can search and find online does not mean the content should be in an article. The entire mess you added is in an inappropriate place, all 11,000 characters and 50 cites. It is unreadable. Even if it were readable, it woul add nothing useful to the article. Please don't continue to edit without taking the time to understand the subject. If you don't wish to spend the time, don't do the edit. This applies to a large percentage your edits. If you can't acknowledge these limitations, then this discussion needs a wider audience. Don't make it necessary for other editors to clean up the results of your sloppy edits. — Neonorange (talk) 04:10, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
I didn't say Carter lived in the lowcountry. I said Jimmy Carter hunted opossums and that opossums are part of Low country cuisine. Both are correct facts and weren't reinserted into the article. Jimmy Carter grew up in inland Georgia. FYI Lowcountry includes coastal Georgia. I checked the sections at Cuisine_of_the_Southern_United_States#Southern_cuisine_by_region and there isn't a section for inland southern cuisine at all. There's only Louisiana Creole, Lowcountry and Appalachian. Nothing on inland Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri.
I know blogs aren't RS, I said there is at least an RS source for a sentence and that if you removed all the blogs the content could still remain because all the sentences have an RS source as their main citation with anything secondary tacked on after.
EditExample sentence< re f name="333" >RS</re f>< re f name="444" >BLOG</re f>
Blog deleted in Edit 2 Example sentence<re f name="333"/>
I didn't add information that was exclusively sourced by a blog. That was the meaning of my statement. You can delete the all the blog links and the content remaining would still stand on RS grounds because it has an RS source. I said the blogs contained some of the RS sources like citations to books from university presses and I got the RS from reading the blog. The blog cited an RS book written by a specialist which I looked up and used as the main citation. I know what an RS is. An academic journal, a book published by a university press, or written by a historian or specialist with a university degree in the field. Not random people with no qualifications. When I add sourced content, I never add it if its only sourced by a blog and not backed up by an RS. The blogs are all in secondary citations which are completely expendable and don't affect the content if they are deleted.
I'm not going to tack on large amounts of secondary citations after a few main citations anymore.Rajmaan (talk) 04:23, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Falun Gong[edit]

I have made a comment on the Talk page of the article Falun Gong. I think it is not appropriate to pay heed to what Jimmy Wales says is admissible or not as a reliable source for what he called Falun Gong. He called it a "religious cult", and there is no harm in Wikipedia saying that's what Jimmy Wales described it as. - (talk) 13:52, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Xiaoerjing was specifically used for Northwestern Mandarin (Lanyin Mandarin Central Plains Mandarin) and there have been changes in phonology of Northwestern dialects which differ from Standard Mandarin. You better read up on all the specific spelling rules at baike.
According to a post on the forum above modern scholars invented a standard Xiaoerjing system presumably for Standard Mandarin and the poster linked to the cover of a book by someone named Yusuf. The only way to make sure you got the right spelling is to buy the book.Rajmaan (talk) 09:08, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Is the Xiao'erjing used in this tool based from Standard Mandarin or a Northwest dialect? Also, can Xiao'erjing be typed using an Arabic keyboard or does it have a special keyboard package of its own? --JackonLee54 (talk) 12:06, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Hanyu Pinyin is only used for Standard Mandarin so its presumably for Standard Mandarin. This is not a government regulated system and there is no central academy regulating spelling. And no, you need to create your own special keyboard package because it has extra letters not found in either the Arabic or Perso-Arabic alphabets. See Arabic_script#Special_letters. Using an Arabic or Persian keyboard would not be sufficient. Email me and I will explain how this works.Rajmaan (talk) 21:54, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Full Citations PLEASE[edit]

I've put [full citation needed] templates on your (very interesting) additions at History of the Ming dynasty. In the past I have taken the time to add the author/ title etc. myself, and I have asked politely that you do it. Putting a bare citation link into a footnote is uncivil.

I swear that in spite of the high regard I have for you, I will in future delete material that is added without full citations.

I'm pretty clumsy, but even I can use the templates at Wikipedia:Citation templates. You are smart and competent and should be able to figure it out in short order if you set aside some time to do it.

All the best and in Wikipedian solidarity! ch (talk) 19:23, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

PS I mean it!!! ch (talk) 19:23, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

For instance, you can copy the template in the table, then just fill in the author etc.:

July 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)


I noticed your recent edit to Aurangzeb does not have an edit summary. Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! Kautilya3 (talk) 00:57, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Yuan Shikai into The Mutual Protection of Southeast China. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 21:20, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Rajmaan for backing me up.

Could you please keep an eye on these page, I know that Spartacus! will be back messing with it again.

His mainly mess with:

1. Sino-Vietnamese War
2. Sino-Soviet border conflict
3. List of wars involving the People's Republic of China

I am almost certain that he will be back messing those articles.

Thank you,
