Vandalism pt 14[edit]

Here's the 14th iteration of Serge's personal WP:AIV. Let me know if you like me to look into any instances that you feel may require warnings, blocks, page protections, or just general intervention. Thanks! Sergecross73 msg me 12:29, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

  • 2600:1017:B424:866A:A82F:133D:FDB3:1B27 (talk · contribs) The guy from the NX draft... Except the Sonic talk page, the rest of his edits are unsourced stuff about Macy's Day parade floats. Isn't there some sort of Macy's LTA? Anyways, probably could go ahead and block for hoaxes. -- ferret (talk) 19:57, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Blocked. Yeah, I think that's the guy that Salv's always chasing down. Also, even the Sonic one was kind of a hoax, considering it said past tense that it was announced on July 22nd. Sergecross73 msg me 20:05, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks for keeping up with the Macy-VG IP vandal, I have to admit I've been kinda of discouraged off the case for the better part of a year.  · Salvidrim! ·  00:04, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
  • No problem. I don't mind blocking LTA/block evading editors forever (Tripple ddd, Zachary Atlus, that one Sonic editor years back, etc.) I just can't be bothered to keep a running log of it all, especially since I frequently do it from mobile... Sergecross73 msg me 15:06, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
  • I didn't bother blocking, as he seems to stop as soon as you catch him (from that IP address anyways) but I've protected/re-protected some common articles he's targeted recently. Sergecross73 msg me 15:06, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Gave him a stern "first and only" warning. I'll try to keep an eye on him. His user page is rather bizarre too. Might be NOTHERE. Let me know if you see anything else weird from him. Sergecross73 msg me 12:52, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Could you take a look at the List of Virtual Console games for Nintendo 3DS (PAL Region) by this anonymous user: from this edit: He has reverted my edit twice when I added an ACB Rating of the Donkey Kong game on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Thanks. Zacharyalejandro (talk) 18:52, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, in your situation, no one isusing sources, and no one is using edit summaries, so it's hard for me to intervene... Sergecross73 msg me 00:45, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

the redo edit you did you could be right i thought it make sense but it seems like it doesn't at all Sergecross73 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sonicgalaxy27 (talkcontribs) 00:23, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

You'll have to be more specific. Which edit? And what's your stance on it? Sergecross73 msg me 00:45, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Tekken 7's Bob & Master Raven[edit]

You forgot to add time release mark on them. Also, the female Raven, since she is dubbed Master Raven due to her rank as Master is the original Raven's superior. (talk) 03:42, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

I think you've got me confused for someone else. I've cleared out some vandalism and enforced consensus from talk page discussions there, but I haven't been regularly updating the article with new content or anything. You may want to make that comment on the article talk page, and see if someone will alter that for you. Sergecross73 msg me 15:03, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Grading Skid Row[edit]

Hey Serge, if you have some free time these days, can you check if Skid Row fulfills the B-class criteria for albums? I'd normally post a request to WP:ALBUMS, but since no one ever checks there, I thought it would be more practical to ask someone. Thanks in advance.--Retrohead (talk) 19:10, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Sure, I suppose I could be a good person for that - being a writer of album articles, but have no real affinity for or against this band/album. Just so you are aware though - I play it pretty "fast and loose" with that whole WP:1.0 system. Personally, I don't feel most readers know about that sort of stuff, so I usually just clean up an article as good as I can, and I feel like that usually just happens to naturally place my articles into the B-range. So, it might not be real technical, and a pickier person could object, but regardless, I'll still read it over for you. (B-class isn't all that serious anyways, considering you can implement that change yourself even, unlike GA/FA.) Sergecross73 msg me 19:19, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Vic Viper[edit]

You're just a dick. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dasaten (talkcontribs) 20:12, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Rather than pointing the finger and playing the blame game, why not see what you did wrong. If you want to pursue this, I recommend starting a rough draft at Wikipedia's "Article's for Creation", and getting it approved by a reviewer, until you get a better grasp on how to write a proper article. No more name-calling though, Wikipedia has a policy against that. Sergecross73 msg me 20:21, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

It wasn't a personal attack. It was a statement based on observation. You took your time to undo tons of work that I did. There should indeed be a disambiguation page for Vic Viper, as there is a notable band with that name. Just because there aren't a bunch of articles about them to reference doesn't mean they aren't credibly notable. They are one of the most successful and quickest rising bands in the video game cover scene. There are tons of wikipedia articles with far less credibility, why don't you spend your time cleaning up those instead? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dasaten (talkcontribs) 20:40, 19 July 2016‎ (UTC)

I assume you understand "you're a dick" is not a constructive comment, so I'll pass on to your other points. You fundamentally misunderstand how the speedy deletion process works. I did not "single out" your article, someone else tagged it as an article that was so poorly written that it be deleted without discussion. I agreed with this nomination, and thus, deleted it. I was merely working my way through the list/database of articles tagged for speedy deletion, and came across it. You'd have to ask that other person as to why they "singled it out", though you should also know that other article's being in worse shape than yours is not a defense that works on Wikipedia.
If you're so intent that I'm being the bad guy here, then by all means, run your article by the article for creation system, and see what the reviewer says. I guaranteed it'd be rejected in its current form. Articles are supposed to be written around what third party sources say about a subject. You provided zero sources at all. That's an auto-fail.

Is it bad taste to edit an article while it's under GA review when somebody else is working on the article?[edit]

Like if you see these points at Talk:Resonance_of_Fate/GA1, should I fix the points, and write on the talk page that I did it, or let the nominator do it? Catfrog (Edits 🐸 Talk) 04:17, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Catfrog - I don't think it'd be in bad taste, I think that's fine if you want to jump in. I guess it could be considered rude if you started steamrolling people and being difficult, but that goes for anywhere in Wikipedia I suppose. Yeah, just communicate what you're doing, and follow WP:BRD if there are any disputes, and you should be good. Sergecross73 msg me 12:35, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Tangle Teezer[edit]

I didn't list this as A7., but as G11. I agree is passes A7 DGG ( talk ) 22:11, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Gotcha. It survived a recent AFD too, FYI. Sergecross73 msg me 22:57, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

PSP gamesharing list[edit]

hi there! finished the thing. check the page out if you don´t mind!Aldaren (talk) 01:35, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Great! I see your message on the talk page, but I don't see where your actual work is. Looking at your edit list isn't helping either. It doesn't appear you've made the changes yet? Sergecross73 msg me 01:42, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
