One comment, one question[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia! If you have any questions about how it all works or anything please feel free to ask me. I just have a few things I wanted to say to you.

  1. Your edit made me want to point out that Spider-Man is the proper article title and "Spider-Man (comics)" is just a redirect to that page.
  2. Do you know how the "Show preview" button works? Your extensive number of edits repeatedly on the same section shows that you may not, and it is helpful to everyone else editing if edits are done in as few as possible.

Keep up the good work and let me know if you don't understand what I said. Spidey104 21:50, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

May 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to If You Leave Me Now, as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Gyrofrog (talk) 18:00, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Please be aware of Wikipedia's policy that biographical information about living persons must not include unsupported or inaccurate statements. Whenever you add possibly controversial statements about a living person to an article or any other Wikipedia page, as you did to If You Leave Me Now, you must include proper sources. If you don't know how to cite a source, you may want to read Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners for guidelines. Thank you. Gyrofrog (talk) 18:01, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. bodnotbod (talk) 08:09, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

October 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article 2112 (song), please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Wisdom89 (T / C) 03:46, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to 2112 (song). Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Wisdom89 (T / C) 04:20, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at 2112 (song), you may be blocked from editing. Wisdom89 (T / C) 05:17, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

Please stop re-adding comments that I have removed from my talk page, especially since you are merely copy and pasting from something written on an article talk page. It can be construed as a form of WP:HARASS. Wisdom89 (T / C) 06:18, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

article on Chicago[edit]

I see you worked on the Chicago (band) article and wanted to give you a heads up. I edited out unsubstantiated material which may have been true but had no sources listed. I am a Chicago fan as I suspect you are, but the article should reflect Wiki policy on sourcing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wemonk (talkcontribs) 18:10, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Tommy can you hear me?[edit]

No welcome, no B.S., just outside tips which have worked. We’ve been there and done that, check our “contribs” to see how bad it can look. Or disregard completely, no expert opinions here.

In order to keep small edits down, some hit edit, copy the section, then paste it into Word or whatever. When it looks better, paste it back into “edit”, and use “preview” to see what it looks like. If minor work, change it in edit, if major, copy and paste into Word again. If it’s not going well, hitting “cancel” next to preview, or just closing the window, leaves the article as it was. Just remember to copy the last version before you do. No pressure on you, just try again later. And you still have it in Word, where nobody can see your screw-ups. Just don’t hit “save” until you’re happy.

Do not edit one section, edit the whole article. That way, when you “preview” you can see what the references look like, they are where some have the most trouble. One extra space can really screw you up, be especially careful where lines break. And by doing the whole article, you can copy something good somewhere else in the article, and paste it into your stuff.

Side note, are you aware that Pete has just released an autobiography named “Who I Am”? Just arrived here. Appears revisionist and self-serving, all autobiographies probably are. Who can be really objective in first person?

For what it’s worth, good luck. Sammy D III (talk) 21:06, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
