March 2016[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Princess Margaretha of Sweden may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

The ANI[edit]

Hi SergeWoodzing! I wanted to leave you a message to give you a hug and offer my empathy regarding your frustration at the ANI today. In the thread, I tried to provide a level-headed response and explain where opportunities could have been improved on both sides of the table. However, before I could offer you my personal assistance and diffuse the situation for everybody involved, other responses were posted on the ANI that were absolutely not constructive or acceptable from a participant at ANI, and they made the situation much much worse (the opposite of what I was trying to do). I completely understand your frustration today, as well as the fact that the ANI thread left you feeling even more frustrated, even more attacked and criticized, and with your feelings left completely ignored.

Speaking on behalf of the administrators and experienced editors that participate at ANI: ...we are expected to assume good faith, listen to both sides of the story, diffuse the situation, offer a level-headed and local analysis of the situation without jumping to conclusions or taking sides, and do our best to make sure that the discussion ends with everyone involved feeling satisfied and listened to. I feel like this did not happen in your ANI discussion today. And for that, I'm very very sorry, and I feel very disappointed that you were treated the way that you were. While I feel that the discussion started off in a fair manner, and with fair statements made, it certainly did not end this way. We missed an opportunity to demonstrate the leadership and maturity that comes with being an experienced editor, and we failed at our job.

I encourage you to take some time, let emotions and frustrations cool down, and allow yourself to move on and (hopefully) take some part of this (even if it's very small) and see it as a positive learning experience. I also want you to know that my talk page is always open to you, and that you're more than welcome to message me if you want to talk, if you have concerns that you want to express, or if you need someone to help you with anything. I promise that I will treat with respect and I will do my best to help you with anything that you need regarding Wikipedia. I hope you have a good weekend, and I wish you happy editing :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 03:09, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

This is the nicest thing that has ever been done to me by another Wikipedian. It's been many lonely years. My heartfelt thank you! --SergeWoodzing (talk) 12:59, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

ANI[edit]

If you falsely accuse others of OWNing an article with no proof ("You yo not own this article") I will happily file a report on you at ANI. there is no OWNership here, but there is some disrtuption caused by uncivil editors making false accusations. - SchroCat (talk) 15:33, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

I pressed enter too early, by mistake, and removed that at once. You weren't supposed to see it. I'm amazed you even did. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 21:42, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Sydney Onayemi[edit]

The source you provided is probably not a lasting source, since that list in the margin will have him bumped down pretty soon. Any other more reliable source at hand? His fame should have garnered some attention by media. Strangnet (talk) 19:45, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

No, but that's an official site of the City of Stockholm. If the city of Stockholm says he died on May 1st, he died on May 1st, and that's reliable. And this belongs on the article's talk page, not here. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 19:50, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
No, it is not the official web site of Stockholm, which is stockholm.se. And the data is retrieved from an external service called Ratsit. --Strangnet (talk) 20:28, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
I repeat: this belongs on the article's talk page, not here. Please do not continue it on my talk page, it does not concern me personally. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 22:14, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Commoner, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Royalty (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.

Please add full citation to Faust Landmark[edit]

You added a partial citation to Faust Landmark that does not enable readers to find the book. The title is incomplete, the author is missing, and the ISBN is invalid. Can you please complete the citation? Thanks. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:25, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

The title of that book of memoirs is complete, exactly like this: "Det var en gång ...". The author's name is not missing, it's Carl Johan Bernadotte. The correct ISBN is 91-0-046018-4, which was the victim of 2 typos on my part. Sorry! Thank you for pointing that error out to me! --SergeWoodzing (talk) 23:14, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
PS Actually, only one typo, now that I checked. You added the 2 dashes at the end of the number. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 23:16, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Neutral user[edit]

To me it seems that you take prince Bernadotte very personell.we did not have any "issue". We discussed if the source was good or not. You did not agree with us, although we gave good reasons. Of course you have the right to ask others to say their opinion, and that was good. By doing so you saw that those people also thought like we did... Which means that we were not wrong, and then it was not an issue. By writing "other neutral users" all the time makes it very personal against the first users who objected against that specific source. You writes very nice not to write personal on the talk pages, but by writing that way you do it your self. And yes, I am neutral. Adville (talk) 18:28, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

Yes, you were right, and I was wrong about how that source was cited.
I will continue to ask for neutral comments, which I find the most helpful to all of us, whether or not you choose to take offense at that, which I think most anyone else can see is not what I intend. It's one of the cornerstones of progress on English Wikipedia, as far as I have seen and learned: neutral comments - asking and waiting for them.
If it is so important to you to keep rubbing it in that all you Swedes (since "we" is what you write) were right and I was wrong in this case, I must tell you that at this point in time I find it (1) extremely (!!!) tiresome and (2) uncessarily aggressive of you to keep repeating that in different wordings, time and again. Please stop it! I'm sure you don't agree, but I'm telling you how I feel, and you can only change that by getting off my back. As I've just recently been through quite a traumatic ordeal on svWP, of which you are very much aware, and which damaged me psychologically, I'd appreciate it very much if you'd leave me alone for a while now, 100%. Is that too much to ask of you? I won't stalk you, harass you or look for any arguments with you at all, and I hope you can find it in the goodness of your heart to be kind to me now. I'd sleep better at night, that's for sure.
Please do not reply!--SergeWoodzing (talk) 20:05, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
