November 2007[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from America's Next Top Model. When removing text, 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 text 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.

-Hi, i reverted an edit made by another user as I felt that the Judges table was a useful feature and still believe it is. Could you give a reason for its removal when many other pages use such a device see Law & Order cast list for reference. (Richardm9 (talk) 21:43, 26 November 2007 (UTC))

I put it back already -- but you removed other content when replacing it -- see diff. Just be careful not to do that in the future. Thanks! Gscshoyru (talk) 21:46, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
If you look at the article you will see that that information on the writers strike is repeated a few sections down, where it fits much better within the article. I was trying to clean up duplicate information which you have now restored. I think you need to re-read the article before correcting other peoples edits in future. Thanks! {Richardm9 (talk) 21:50, 26 November 2007 (UTC))
Oh, is it? Ok then. If you explain yourself in the edit summary, though, then stuff like this won't happen. When vandal fighting, I don't actually have the time to read the whole article every time someone removes content -- and when I make a mistake, like now, someone usually tells me, so I know. Ok? So explain yourself when you're removing content in the edit summaries, so I and others like me know. Thanks! Gscshoyru (talk) 21:56, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

No problem, I will add more info to my edit summary. Apologies for the confusion, I guess we're both just trying to make wikipedia better :) (Richardm9 (talk) 21:58, 26 November 2007 (UTC))
That we are :) Happy editing! Gscshoyru (talk) 22:00, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Valentine (TV series)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Valentine (TV series), and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Valentine, Inc.. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 21:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Mate! You undid me before I even had a chance to explain why you can't just copy-and-paste move pages! And also there's now too much page history to perform a legit "move". Basically, you always need to use the "move" tab at the top next to "history" to keep the page history together, which is needed for legal reasons (GFDL copyright). You can't just cut and paste the content without a wikilink to the original page. - Toon05 21:36, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Again my apologies, it was my haste in changing the title that made me miss you (and miss this message as I was typing on your user pages). Sorry about that, I will use the move tab in future, again my apologies! {Richardm9 (talk) 21:38, 6 August 2008 (UTC))
No worries, I've tagged the page for a history merge... someone should be round shortly with the mop and bucket :) - Toon05 21:40, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
Cheers for that, I will hopefully do better next time a dodgy american telly show changes it's name :) {Richardm9 (talk) 21:41, 6 August 2008 (UTC))


I'm simply editing with a bit of boldness given the rumors flying around message boards, etc. resulting unsourced edits abounding on the main and Season 15 pages. You made two edits but didn't source them - I simply checked NBC, found no support for your edit, reverted and requested a source. Likewise, production codes don't correspond with episode numbers necessarily - remember there's also a retrospective special that night. The finale is running as one episode in the US. If you choose to see that as imposing my views on you so be it, but it doesn't make it so. My edits are entirely within Wikipedia guidelines. I see no need to step back, and I have no interest in starting an ER page. Drmargi (talk) 21:14, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Valentinetv titlecard.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Valentinetv titlecard.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).


  • I am a bot, and will therefore not be able to answer your questions.
  • I will remove the request for deletion if the file is used in an article once again.
  • If you receive this notice after the image is deleted, and you want to restore the image, click here to file an un-delete request.
  • To opt out of these bot messages, add {{bots|deny=DASHBot}} to your talk page.
  • If you believe the bot has made an error, please turn it off here and leave a message on my owner's talk page.

Thank you. DASHBot (talk) 15:15, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
