3RR[edit]

Please refrain from undoing other people's edits repeatedly. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia under the three-revert rule, which states that nobody may revert a single page more than three times in 24 hours. (Note: this also means editing the page to reinsert an old edit. If the effect of your actions is to revert back, it qualifies as a revert.) Thank you. Joelito (talk) 22:17, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Your Edits to Pluto[edit]

It might not have been your intention, but you recently removed content from Pluto. Please be careful not to remove content from Wikipedia without a valid reason, which you should specify in the edit summary or on the article's talk page. Thank you. -Royalguard11(Talk)(Desk) 02:23, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Removing number on 134340 pluto talk page[edit]

I can understand your bad thoughts about Pluto having a minor planet number associated with it, but that isn't an excuse to remove the number from someone's post on a talk page. Also, you removed some things which contribute to knowledge of the topic, which also should not be done. Please do not remove other peoples posts on talk page, or edit appropriate posts. Thanks! Tuvas 06:26, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Keep cool about Pluto[edit]

It is important to keep a cool head, especially when responding to comments against you or your edits. Personal attacks and disruptive comments only escalate a situation; please keep calm and remember that action can be taken against other parties if necessary. Attacking another user back can only satisfy trolls or anger contributors and leads to general bad feeling. Please try to remain civil with your comments. Thanks! Ryūlóng 00:54, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Please also do not delete content on Wikipedia, particularly in the form of calling Eris a dwarf planet or not. Michaelbusch 03:58, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Misunderstanding[edit]

Our discussion has been removed from that talk page for good reason, but u appear to have misunderstood/misrepresented me, ill clarify:

MOST people are dissapointed but have come to accept the decision (ie. ask people you know from work or somewhere "how many planets are there?", and see what they answer). The MINORITY have taken an active stand against it and actually give more than a passing thought to what pluto is classified as... for various reasons... whether they be personal or problems with what makes the definition. The outright accepting group also fits in there somewhere, but i dont want to start a firefight over where it goes

I never claimed that the outright accepting group was the majority... if that is how you read my post im sorry for the misunderstanding -- Nbound 00:59, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Pluto's Astrological Symbol[edit]

Please comment on Pluto's talk page before removing the symbol again. Bluap 01:13, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Satellites of EL61[edit]

I have reverted your edits to the satellites of EL61 article. The matter of Pluto being a minor planet is simply terminology, and I suggest that it is simpler to not mention it in this article, since there is already a discussion elsewhere. With regards to the second moon, the period was obtained assuming a circular orbit, which is now know to not be the case. According to Mike's website:

The fainter satellite appears to circle 2003 EL61 once every 34 days, though more observations are required to confirm this orbit.

Those observations have not yet occurred. They are scheduled for January and February. We don't have a good value for the period, and won't until we have additional observations to get the three-body dynamics of the system. This is work by Darin Ragozzine, one of Mike's graduate students. I'm debating with myself as to the need for a separate article for EL61's moons. Michaelbusch 19:58, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Pluto[edit]

Please cease redirecting links to Pluto (dwarf planet). This is the name of the article. I'm afraid you'll just have to live with it. Michaelbusch 06:00, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

My apologies. But you have done this before, in various mutations. Michaelbusch 06:03, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Unnecessary redirects[edit]

Please stop creating unnecessary redirects in articles. (Examples include changing links like [[Pluto]] to [[Pluto (planet)|Pluto]], [[Ceres (dwarf planet)|Ceres]] to [[Ceres (planet)|Ceres]], and renaming asteroid links to "X (asteroid)".) These changes serve no useful purpose, and only create extra work for other editors to clean up after you. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a note. Thank you. --Ckatzchatspy 06:51, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Please stop making POV edits at Pluto, Eris, Ceres, and other astronomy pages[edit]

Something14, your actions are now bordering on vandalism. You are repeatedly changing the infoboxes on dwarf planet pages, removing the MPC designation because you don't like it. You continue with this action, despite being reverted by Bluap, Shimgray, Michaelbusch, JEBrown87544, and myself. Even worse, you have just made nonsensical changes to the Natural satellites template, deleting Eris from the "Pluto and Eris" tab, and moving Eris to the Earth-Mars tab. All of this, because you apparently cannot accept that Pluto is classified as a dwarf planet. It was bad enough when you were making nuisance edits such as changing Pluto links to Pluto (planet) redirects. Please, accept that you are not going to change the IAU's decision, and restore Pluto to planethood, merely by editing Wikipedia. All you will achieve is to disrupt the project. --Ckatzchatspy 05:06, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

I have taken the dispute on the minor planet numbering in the infobox to WP:RFC. This should hopefully provide a neutral solution to the dispute Bluap 04:58, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Editors that don't provide an edit summary tend to look like vandals[edit]

I have noticed you commonly don't enter an edit summary as you didn't when you edited New Horizons (see this edit). This causes me problems. When I patrol for vandalism, I use the summary to make a preliminary decision on whether or not the post is a vandal edit or not. If the summary is present (or at least a section header, the part inside the /* */), I commonly decide the edit is legit and move on.

However, if no edit summary is available, I typically resort to loading the diff for the edit. This takes time. For that reason, if your edits are all valid, I ask that you provide edit summaries. For more on how to enter an edit summary, please read Help:Edit summary.

Incidentally, it is not just me that appreciate having edit summaries. When you omit your summary, you may be telling various bots that you are vandalizing pages. For this reason, please consider providing that summary. It is very important. You can enter that summary via the edit summary box on edit pages (as shown below).

Please do not delete content from articles on Wikipedia, as you did to Detroit, Michigan. Your edits could be considered vandalism, and have been reverted. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Hinoa 20:38, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Pluto[edit]

Please do not restore that text without a reliable source. Yes, the individuals are well-known and noteworthy (in fact, several are already mentioned in the article regarding the status) but the site does not meet the requirements of the reliable sources guideline. If this is noteworthy, it should be easy to find mention of it in a reliable news source. --Ckatzchatspy 00:38, 29 March 2009 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of STS-144[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article STS-144 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Suspected hoax article. Absolutely no evidence that this was a real proposal, and has been tagged as unreferenced for over two years.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. GW 19:12, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Goodbye Cressida 6.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Goodbye Cressida 6.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 10:05, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Goodbye Cressida 8.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Goodbye Cressida 8.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status and its source. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

If you did not create this work entirely yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. You will also need to state under what licensing terms it was released. Please refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file.

Please add this information by editing the image description page. If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:46, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

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.
