January 2014[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Broadway Media Centre a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. -- 70.50.148.122 (talk) 07:22, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Shelford Priory, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Moiety, Saint Katherine and Rauceby (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

How to react on confusing interference in the article on PINK de Thierry[edit]

Dear Rushton, An editor named https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Miniapolis interfered in the article on PINK de Thierry. And i think that his changes don't do any good to the article at all. How do i have to react on this? Just undo it? I don't even think that his so-called improvements are worth to duscuss. So what do you advice me?? Thank you in advance, Donald Donald.louw 15:13, 3 February 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Donald.louw (talkcontribs)

Please assume good faith User:Miniapolis is an admin with a lot of editing experience and meticulous copyediting skills. He is a member of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors and the article has been greatly improved by his "interference". Theroadislong (talk) 21:11, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

A bit of help[edit]

Hi Rushton2010, I apologize if my question repeat something that has already been asked, I am trying to figure my way around Wikipedia and it's a bit confusing.

You have reviewed an article that we have submitted awhile ago and I am trying to figure out what to do to improve it. Can you help me out? This is the page that I am talking about: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Stjudepr

Since it is my first time logging in the account ( the article was submitted by someone else and I had no access to this account prior today), I just want to know what needs to be fixed so we can move along with posting the page. Any help will be appreciated! Thank you, Saint Jude Retreats

( PS: I already submitted a request for changing the username, I asked in the forum and I was advised to do so) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stjudepr (talkcontribs) 20:05, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Black Adder I ---> Princes in the Tower and the ePetition for DNA testing[edit]

Was watching pilot of The Black Adder, The Foretelling, and bounced around refreshing my memory of the Battle of Bosworth and who the heck is Brian Blessed playing (King Richard IV of England who???) but finally got interested in why they haven't DNA tested the possible skeletons of the boys bodies. Looks like the e-petition at Her Majesties Government website has been closed without reason some months before the 12/02/2014 expected closing date. Sent an email response asking and will see what they say. It's a shame but this article in The Guardian explains the motivations of her majesty and the church. I went back through the history and found that you had first inserted the sentence about the ePetition so figured I would let you know. Alatari (talk) 23:12, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

To an old friend and ally[edit]

Hi Rushton. Hope you are well. If you have nothing better to do - and I am sure you have!! - but if you have a spare minute or two can you cast an editorial eye over a couple of my pages - Kevin Howarth and Simon Rumley - and see what you think. I have been having some disagreements about notability and references - again! - and would value an opinion from a fellow Wikipedian I know to be trustworthy and commonsensical. Feel free to maker any edits you think might improve either Picknick99 (talk) 18:26, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Rushton2010. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).

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.
