Speedy deletion nomination of Americans in Kenya[edit]

Hello Rtedb,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Americans in Kenya for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Benboy00 (talk) 00:40, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Your new articles[edit]

I am wondering why you decided to create Vietnamese people in Brunei, Filipinos in Uganda, and Americans in Kenya all within one hour of each other, but did not put any real information in those articles. I think it would have been better to bring one of the articles up to suitable encyclopedic quality first before starting on the next one. --Metropolitan90 (talk) 18:49, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Jab843. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Jab843 (talk) 14:47, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

don't revert before seeing talk page.[edit]

dude! really? consensus pretty much been reached about most sources. if you're can't be bothered to be informed about the issue, don't but your nose into it. SyriaWarLato (talk) 22:52, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

i say again, if you can't be bothered to look at what your deleting/reverting. kindly piss off. SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:00, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Just looked at the talk page, and the consensus is pretty much against you, based on everyone who have commented on the discussion so far. Rtedb (talk) 23:04, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
check again. i pretty much convinced one the editors who reverted my edits. one other brought up a point that was proved to be false, the 65,000 civilian casualties turned out to be not WP:RS. and the last one just thinks Vietnamese government isn't WP:RS. in which he has the consensus against him. SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:06, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
also my newer edits are of consensus accepted info. each one is referenced. i also removed unreferenced edits from infobox. if you have a reason to revert. take it to talk page. SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:08, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

do you have a constructive reason? or do you just delete to amuse yourself? SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:18, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Nope, all your major edits are undiscussed, and you are edit-warring to push your POV when about 5 other editors have already reverted you multiple times. You can't just selectively delete reliable sources, and the stable version should be kept until a consensus is reached on the talk page. Rtedb (talk) 23:25, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
no. i din't delete reliable sources. that's just in your little head. i removed original research(the unreferenced bolded total forces and casualties) i also proved levy's north vietnamese civilians casualties wrong(for the infobox, since it's incomplete). added new troop strength figures, all referenced. SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:27, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
the last guy, who deletes my edits the most, doesn't want to accept Vietnamese government as a reliable source. he won't win that argument SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:29, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
Nope, everything is reliably referenced in the stable version. You are POV-pushing and deleting multiple sources with no discusson or consensus. Rtedb (talk) 23:37, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

tell me where are the references for total troops strength, or total casualties which were bolded. adding the numbers together don't count since that's original research. but of course you knew that already. also, lewy has been proven unreliable(FOR THE INFOBOX) since it gives the wrong impression on total NVA civilian casualties. so far you have nothing useful to add just want to revert for the sake of it.SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:43, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Also, pray tell. what's this supposed POV/agenda i'm pushing for? can you specify my supposed bias? SyriaWarLato (talk) 23:45, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
