ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:04, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

June 2016[edit]

Hi, I reverted your changes to Michael Jordan's accolades.

... five Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards, 10 All-NBA First Team designations, nine All-Defensive First Team honors, fourteen NBA All-Star Game appearances, three All-Star Game MVP Awards, 10 scoring titles, three steals titles, six NBA Finals MVP Awards, and the 1988 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Wikipedia's of Style, Dates and numbers 'Numbers as figures or words' says, "Comparable quantities should be all spelled out or all in figures" and "Integers greater than nine expressible in one or two words may be expressed either in numerals or in words."

I also reverted your "Bachelor of Liberal Arts in cociology" change to Alexandra Stevenson rather than correct it to your intended "Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Sociology" as I couldn't find any references for that degree from University of Colorado, or for what degree Stevenson actually earned, beyond a generic "online Bachelor of Arts". I flagged it with 'citation needed'. Crētus (talk) 01:44, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism warning (June 2016)[edit]

Reply from SnoozeKIng: Huh? Not sure what you're talking about, Robert. My editing is always constructive and productive; it's kind of what I do for a living. Please desist from sending me nasty messages.

August 2016[edit]

January 2017[edit]

Information icon Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in Kurt Cobain. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. - Mlpearc (open channel) 15:49, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

As I've said, suicide is a manner of death, not a cause. I'm just correcting someone's error.

I sympathize with your position, but "manner of death" is not a valid infobox parameter, so it therefore won't show up. I would suggest you go to Template talk:Infobox person and make a suggestion there to modify the template. Then perhaps you can gain consensus to change the infobox at Cobain, and other appropriate places. (By the way, you're edit warring over this, even if it isn't "3 in a row". Additionally, calling other editors "jokers" could be construed as a personal attack. Please stop.) 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 20:37, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
I'll second what both other editors have said. Replacing "death_cause" with "death_manner" does not help because it is not part of the infobox and does not appear to the reader. See here. The template would need rewording. If you restore that it will be edit warring and you will be blocked. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 22:07, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

February 2017[edit]

Stop icon You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at Kurt Cobain. Seattle (talk) 16:15, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

I simply corrected an error; do you really want to penalize me for trying to make Wiki better? SnoozeKing (talk) 21:12, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes. Seattle (talk) 05:38, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

November 2017[edit]

Please use edit summaries to explain why you are making changes. You changed the text in article Bill Gates, where the text was associated with several references. Did you check those references before substituting your own words? Ideally you did. Shenme (talk) 06:07, 18 November 2017 (UTC)


Information icon Hello, I'm Shenme. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to k.d. lang have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

Do not change people's quotes. Do not substitute different words merely at your whim. Wikipedia articles are not your playthings. Shenme (talk) 06:14, 18 November 2017 (UTC)


Sometimes you get it right. Sometimes you get it wrong. Sometimes you are technically correct, such as changing "eighty-third" to '83rd', but really? And a lot of the time you are just shuffling new words in to replace others.

If you must work off energy by word fiddling, try fixing misspellings. 'Comission' is good for ~70 edits, 'tthe' for another 70 edits, 'laywer' for 15 or so. Pick a word and drop or add a letter - often times that goof is in some articles. Search using ~"tthe" in the search box. Nice thing is, an article with one goof often has others, like grammar problems, and then you're fixing lots of real problems. Now a real challenge is something like ~"tahsil" for 500 edits - should be 'tehsil'. Or "promotor", which only sometimes should be 'promoter', because of valid uses of 'promotor' in Latin and other languages and/or countries. Is it right, is it wrong? Depends on the context.

Edit summaries[edit]

Can you please start using edit summaries? Some of us frequently go back and review articles, to check the quality hasn't deteriorated, and it takes orders of magnitude longer to look up a change, think "does this comply with the manual of style or not" and "will anyone complain about this"? Remember that vandals don't use edit summaries either. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 10:54, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

New Additions to the O'Farrell Theater Article[edit]

If you have a questions about any of the sourced additions and edits that I made to the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater article, please first discuss them with me on its Talk Page before you do major changes -- other editors may want to get involved as well. I have carefully checked my statements with 3 books, and feel that they are accurate and in good faith. Cheers. James Carroll (talk) 07:18, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

April 2018[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing.

If you continue to disrupt Wikipedia, as you did at The Social Network, you may be blocked from editing. Given your Talk page history I'm forced to assume you know when you may be being disruptive, and it would take you all of thirty seconds (it took me ten) to verify the capitalization on website. Please stop. DonIago (talk) 19:06, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

I am also in agreement with User:Doniago concerning your disruptive editing, but this time upon your invalid edit today to the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater . The issue in question was resolved months ago, but you went ahead with a repetition of an earlier, invalid edit to that article. If you again repeat this action I also will have to make a disruptive editing complaint. James Carroll (talk) 23:10, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
How many times are you going to continue to falsely substitute the term 'striptease club' for 'strip club' in the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater article ? What is this, the third time, you have tried to force this incorrect term? Disruptive Editing could cause you to loose your account. James Carroll (talk) 17:09, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
