Thanks for the help.[edit]

I have noticed that I don't do that, and it's for many reasons. One is what you said, about finding the right template. (So I usually just leave a personal message.) Another is that I've found that certain times, it doesn't make a difference. I know that may make me sound like a "bad editor", but I find it either starts a "war" or people leave multiple messages and it still doesn't help. But I do thank you for trying to help. --JpGrB 21:25, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

RE: Partipolistikt obundna i svenska kyrkan[edit]

It's nothing wrong with my correction. The split was because of several issues (of course) but same-sex blessings was the main, not women ordination where there is not much difference beetween FK and POSK. There was also personal conflicts within POSK which led to the split. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me. This mistake with reverting would not happen if your change were accompanied by providing source to verify validity.
So far I was able to find one article that seems to support it: Hallands Nyheter: Homosexuella välkomnas men partnerskap välsignas inte.
Please inform me if you think this source is sutable or you have other links.

The sources in English are prefereble, but in Swedish would do too. Skarebo (talk) 00:39, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

It works as a source. It's an article about the split and the main focus is same-sex blessings. I haven't found any information in English, but maybe you can use and to get a clue about the article. Thanks for looking into this. (talk) 12:01, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

California CASA[edit]

Hi Skarebo - I must admit I am new to article writing, so I appreciate your input. I looked over the article, and made some changes. Please let me know how you think I can make this more neutral. I am an attorney and have been doing child advocacy for several years. This is an organization that is a stakeholder for child welfare in Calif. and CASA is set up by statute and court rule, which I cited (and linked). After reviewing the article, I do not find anything that says that CASA's does a good or bad job, just that the law gives them a duty as listed.

The stats listed are reported by the Courts, and are actually lackluster in my opinion. I linked all the programs because I thought it would be helpful to those who looked up "CASA."

Also, I looked at the "CASA" page and it is woefully inadequate. I was going to do something there, too, but I decided not to until I go some feedback from you. Thanks for your time and help. 400lbs (talk) 08:09, 11 November 2008 (UTC)400lbs

Your request for rollback[edit]

Wikipedia Rollback.png

After reviewing your request for rollback, I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback can be used to revert vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback may be removed at any time.

If you no longer want rollback, then contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some information on how to use rollback, you can view this page. I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, just leave me a message if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Happy editing! —αἰτίας discussion 17:15, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

CSI edit[edit]

i erased the CSI paragraph because it is false information: william petersen still stars in CSI season nine and lawrence fishburne is nowhere to be seen . lady heather never apeared in episode 5 of the ninth season —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:45, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Well… you erased it without explanation—definitely unconstructive. btw, it's not exactly false information. It's somewhat mistaken, because the new character will be introduced in season 10 (CNN: Fishburne joining 'CSI'). Little advise: In the future you should try to improve instead of tearing down.

Peter Lavelle's page[edit]

You recently edited back Peter Lavelle's page. I ask you, do you know anything about the man whose reputation you are protecting? He is regularly seen around moscow entertaining prepubescent girls (this is not a joke), and is almost certainly abusing them - he clearly only lives in Moscow as such behavior is more acceptable than in the States. Please take responsibility for your actions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ronaldoron (talkcontribs) 12:59, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm protecting reputation of Wikipedia.
What Wikipedia is not: “Wikipedia is not a soapbox, a battleground, or a vehicle for propaganda and advertising. Therefore, content hosted in Wikipedia is not: Scandal mongering or gossip. Articles about living people are required to meet an especially high standard, as they may otherwise be libellous or infringe the subjects' right to privacy. Articles should not be written purely to attack the reputation of another person.”
Besides… this your edit was a blatant vandalism. Skarebo (talk) 13:43, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Courchevel Ski Resort Guide[edit]


It appears as if you have removed the link to our resort guide to Courchevel ( I am unsure as to why as it is a comprehensive resort guide to Courchevel including catered chalet accommodation not featured on Courchevels tourism website.

Do Ya/Stay With Me[edit]


Some days ago I edited the page "Do Ya/Stay With Me", the single of the band McFly. I changed that fact that on the Single the song "Lies" would be there, instead of "The last Song(Live)".

You reverted that and accused me of vandalism. This is wrong.

On all the webpages, including McFly's myspace, they say that on the single, the song "Lies" will be included. NOT "The Last Song".

Please remove that accusation of vandalism of my IP address. Thank you and have a nice day. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:48, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me. I believe that your edit was made with good intentions. The problem is that you faild to provide any edit summary, so I had to base my decision on available information. Before I reverted the change I checked the reference in the article – it shows 4th track as “The Last Song (Live)”. Now I've investigated this issue a little bit more – it seems that CD track list was changed somewhat late (club-mcfly) and quite a few music stores still show the old one. You may want to replace the reference in the article with something more current. Regards, Skarebo (talk) 14:54, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

American Pie[edit]

How does the removal of excessive Madonna information from the Don McLean American Pie article constitute vandalism? The information regarding her cover is excessive and if valid should be moved to a seperate page, originally her version took up more room on the page than the original, all links at the bottom where in relation to other songs by her with no links to any other Don McLean work —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:25, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi Skarebo,

Careful with reverting to the correct version of the article when rolling back vandalism. Sometimes the vandals are a little crafty... Hiberniantears (talk) 13:36, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, I've noticed it. It's just Huggle is not so good for digging through article's history. I was looking at it in the browser—to finish with Twinkle, but you did it faster! :) Skarebo (talk) 13:43, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Please do not revert this page back to its original content. I have made minor changes excluding an affiliation between Mr. Coulson and a former employee. He no longer has an affiliation with this employee and I would like the wikipedia page to reflect that.

Thank you!

Danny Gosser (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 20:40, 24 March 2009 (UTC).

The only reason for my revert was page blanking. I've assumed that either it's a mistake, or you're going to update this artile. But it's not a good reason to leave it empty for an hour… Even if the changes are major, an article should not be blanked. In the future, please, use the proper maintenance messages. Another option is to prepare the new version in the sandbox or by using “Preview” button. Thanks, Skarebo (talk) 22:00, 24 March 2009 (UTC)


Hello. With regards to this ACC request, you made a mistake in creating it. Because the username sounds like a company name or a self-promotional name (especially when the email is considered), it is a violation of the username policy, and thus should not be created and should be closed as UPolicy. In the future, please be careful not to make mistakes like this, as access to the tool can and will be revoked. --FastLizard4 (TalkIndexSign) 07:51, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Since the name in question was a user's real name (Firstlast) + profession, it didn't seem to fit “promote a group or company”. As far as I understand, the personal names are not prohibited by username policy. While this may be a result of me overanalyzing the available info, imho to call it a mistake is a stretch. On the other hand—if you consider it as a proper approach, I will apply the username policy in a more narrow way from now on. Thanks, Skarebo (talk) 08:44, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

'Weasel words' on the entry for the Spanish-American War[edit]

Your description - 'weasel words'- would rather suggest your particular bias in this matter. I have none except that wherever and whenever possible Wiki entries should be balanced and truthful. I am, at present, on holiday and am paying for net access. Once I am home again and can collate references, I shall supply all necessary citations and then some. But for starters, how about 'The Meaning Of The Maine' by Louis A. Perez, Jr? Broadly, I have for some time been alarmed at an often pro-American bias on Wikipedia, which, if it exists as I suggest, contradicts completely the avowed aims of this website.

"This article is about a living person, and must adhere to the policy on biogrpahies of living persons. Controversial material about living persons that is unsourced or poorly sourced should not be added and if present, must be removed immediately, especially if potentially libelous." - Wiki policy

The article is about a living person: Ted Schmidt (Talent Agent) It has been repeatedly edited, and redirected to a fictitious person, Ted Schmidt (Character in "Queer as Folk). This character has personal problems including drug and pornography addictions which make this listing libelous to the living person Ted Schmidt (Talent Agent).

As Wiki articles typically appear in the top search engines, I am respectfully requesting that the living person be granted precedence over the fictitious person. Failure to do so is libelous, negligent, and reckless; resulting in an undetermined amount of financial damage to the living person.

Equal time for a living person to avoid libel should be enough justification. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:11, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

"Permission has been verified…" — permission to use the text from website, that's it.

Okie Dokie, kind of lagging it with Mortum Crypt. However, this all began with the band Crematorium, when I googled them and found that they were NOT on wiki.

The Qur'an explicitly states that the earth is flat: "'And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (spread out), (71:19) 20:53 "He Who has made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky." and some other interesting cosmology: 'See ye not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another' (71:15) (which actually confirms to the Ptolemaeic world view). See Qur'an text Also mainstream Islamic scholars believed that the earth is flat.

I do not believe that correcting misleading or even false information, however embarrassing or inconvenient it might be for religious apologists, constitutes vandalism according to Wikipedia policy. (talk) 11:14, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Not every addition to Wikipeida requires one to cite their source[edit]

No one with any knowledge about the subject matter at hand would dispute the veracity of what wrote. It is all easily verifiable. I doub't you could find single Lubavitcher on either side of the issue who disagreed with any of it. You can easily find the source for the material I added by merely Googling it. What specifically do you object to? There is another Wikpedia rule about reverting material when you the option to edit it. It is considered bad form to just revert material. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:52, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

“You can easily find the source for the material I added by merely Googling it.” — Good, then it should be easy for you. Just google it and add the source. Skarebo (talk) 02:03, 6 December 2010 (UTC)


Oops. My mistake. I'll be sure to look more into it while reverting. Got a bit confusing with all the IP edits. ΣПDiПGSTΛЯT 01:59, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

"American Nationalism"[edit]

I put some stuff on the American Nationalism page. You changed it because it was biased, but it was not as biased as the stuff that was on the page when I got to it.... Someone should fix that. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:04, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

You put not “some stuff”, but your opinions. Such comments are more appropriate for the article's talk page. Skarebo (talk) 06:11, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Preterist view on Seven Seals page[edit]

Hi Skarebo, I posted the preterist section on there and have been working on that page. I was trying to revert that guy from deleting that section off the page. But somehow there was an edit conflict. I wasn't trying to delete that section as it appeared in your comment.Jasonasosa (talk) 11:55, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I think you've misunderstood the revert comment — it simply means that I've reverted this article several versions back and your edit was one of them. You've missed some changes, so I had to dig deeper… :) Skarebo (talk) 12:02, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh, okay, thanks Jasonasosa (talk) 12:15, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

"I'm not vandalizing!"[edit]

Vandals really hate you, don't they? :P --* Galilsnap - [ TalkContribs ] 03:48, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

It can't be helped… ;-) Skarebo (talk) 05:49, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

I removed the last paragraph on Haris Vlavianos's page becauase it is based on a false accusation which underimines the integrity and reputation of this well-known poet. In an old collection of his he adapted a poem by an Irish poet, who is a close friend of his, to his knowledge. This poet, Michael Longley, not only knew about this adaptation but a few years later he wrote the introduction to Vlavianos's "Selected Poems" volume that was published by "Dedalus Press" in Dublin in 2008. Moreover, he was invited to Athens by Vlavianos himself to be present at the launching of his book of poems, entitled "Homer' Octapus", that Vlavianos translated. The unknown person that keeps editing Vlavianos' page [he signs as "Agnostosgnostos", which means in Greek, "Unknownknown"] obviously wants to cause damage to this person by lying about his work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:11, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

maybe I am vandilising[edit]

but I'm also a qualified expert, more used to writing academic papers than wikipedia articles. I removed material within my area of expertise that I consider encourage illegal activities.

the material was also uncited. are you telling me I need a reason other than the material have no citations to remove it? when the material is considered by most experts in the area to mislead the public, possibly into illegal, immoral, silly behaviour? like keeping large wild animals from tropical jungles as pets?

I guess I do. I'm one of those vandals that hates you it seems.

I'm also genuinely busy. I think you should remove the material. all else being equal, none of it was verifiable.

good luck with the glass bead game or whatever you boys are playing here. It isn't scholarship whatever it is. Duracell (talk) 07:14, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

John Charles Gilkey[edit]

The article is about a living person and is libel. It is defamation of character and copies have been sent to attorneys. THe book is only a certain percentage of truth. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JBURNER666 (talkcontribs) 01:11, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

As you claim to be that person here, you need to read WP:COI and not edit the article further. Please also keep in mind that all legal proceedings are a matter of public record. Please also keep in mind that making legal threats violates WP:LEGAL. You need to change your behaviour immediately. Srobak (talk) 15:01, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Reviewing Dairy Cattle Showmanship[edit]

Hello I am a freshman at Clemson University and in English 103 we are writing articles in Wikipedia. I am doing Dairy Cattle Showmanship which is something that I am very interested in. Attached is the link to my sandbox and I was wondering if you could look over it and give me any pointers? Thanks!

Enrique Gil Page[edit]

Hi, want to clarify something, i didn't even edited the content of Enrique Gil Page. I just made some changes to the format copied the format of "Filmography" and apply it to "Discography". is that a problem? kindly reply :) Thanks :) Double Melody (talk) 15:56, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Nope, it's a misunderstanding. Thank you for clarifying it. Skarebo (talk) 16:43, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I think my comment was constructive[edit]

My comment was very constructive and you are disobeying the wikipedia policy act,section 14 clause 12. I could report you for this but in my good will i won't as long as you don't do it again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:01, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

(Talk page stalker comment) @ There is no such thing as "wikipedia policy act,section 14 clause 12", and if it had been me reverting your blanking on Guatemala I would have given you a considerably more stern warning than the one Skarebo gave you. Thomas.W talk to me 17:28, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

why did you attack my contribution? I only wanted to point out that the humorous attribution of bugs to 'phases of the Moon' has an occasional basis in reality. There is nothing unconstructive about that. (talk) 15:00, 7 December 2013 (UTC)



Watch out when you are making formating about the meaning of the sentences. In this article you use the template CONVERT in order to convert a temperature of 19°C to 66°F. However the sentence in the article was not for a température in Celsius transformed to Farenheit (Celsius multiplied by 1.8 + 32), it was : "this requires 19°C a temperature difference which is 34.2°F (Celsius multiplied by 1.8). I had to correct.

Pierre cb (talk) 04:35, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Yep, mistake. On the other hand, 34 °F is better — precision is not that high. Skarebo (talk) 06:55, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
OK. Pierre cb (talk) 15:28, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

About the update on the Buffalo Niagara Airport[edit]

Hello, if you notice on the article, there are 2 notations. I updated the second notation which just seemed to be a duplicate of the first with the correct information, as US Airways / US Airways Express is merging into the American Airlines group, becoming American Airlines and American Eagle respectfully. Please undo your correction. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:602:C102:CA5A:C5B1:88D1:2321:173A (talk) 07:39, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

I cannot find any confirmation that US Airways Express is to be re-branded as American Eagle. In fact, the reference on US Airways Express page that supposed to confirm this info actually contains nothing about it. Please, provide the better source. It will help both articles. Skarebo (talk) 08:04, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Driving License In Lebanon Article[edit]


Considering you asked about why did I remove the "Obtaining a driver's license" part. Well I noticed that it's already mentioned in the document. Somehow a couple of sections below so it would be a bloat to mention it twice, don't you think?

Have a nice day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:48, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, you right about it. Skarebo (talk) 08:27, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

editing used car article[edit]

i added a ten step to buying a used car to the used car article and i added the source so i hope you will not delete it this time

Used car: edits deletion[edit]

I'm the owner of the content and the owner of that website so why are you deleting my edits — Preceding unsigned comment added by Redjohn11 (talkcontribs) 07:53, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

1) Wikipedia is not a "how to" manual.
2) The content inserted by you is copyrighted, and it does not look like the license is compatible with Wikipedia requirements. Skarebo (talk) 08:00, 13 October 2015 (UTC)


I did not edit this page:, in any manner whatsoever. This is not a shared computer/IP either, so I'm unsure how you attributed the edits to me. Regardless, no harm, no foul, I guess.

Good day.
