United Kingdom of Great Britain (1707)[edit]

Howdy Spiritofstgeorge. Thank you for your kind, polite, and civil demeanor that you have shown me on the Wikipedia Article page entitled Great Britain (1707), or whatever they decide to call it. I am fed-up with DeCausa, and Moonraker. Simply put, I can not reason with them. Anyways, thank you for being pleasant to talk to, and take care, Don ("from Across-the-Pond"). Best wishes, ArmchairVexillologistDonLives! (talk) 18:30, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Years in England[edit]

Hi Spiritofstgeorge.

Thanks for the message - glad to see that others agree with what I started. As I get time I would intend to do more, and add more detail in to the Scottish, English, Welsh and Northern Irish articles. Cheer Fishiehelper2 (talk) 11:11, 19 October 2011 (UTC)

Rangers FC dispute[edit]

I'm not sure if you aware that there is a discussion about the Rangers dispute at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Football#Rangers_F.C to discuss whether there should be a single Rangers FC article instead of the two that presently exist for Rangers 1872-2012 and the Newco Rangers. Regards Fishiehelper2 (talk) 21:54, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

You are currently canvassing on the talk pages of numerous editors - please cease at once. GiantSnowman 12:59, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
Read the description of canvassing - "done with the intention of influencing the outcome of a discussion towards one side of a debate" - exactly what you have done. GiantSnowman 15:38, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
You have NOT been even handed - it doesn't matter who or what you target, it's your tone. You have said that "an attempt is being made to undermine this article by pushing through a 'same club' approach despite many of us believing this is heavily biased and very selective use of the sources" - that is one of the most biased things I've ever seen on here. GiantSnowman 15:47, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm uncertain how Wikipedia actually works but judging by the absolute rubbish spouted on the site regarding Rangers FC and the childish continual use of "newco" then I will regard any Wiki entry as doubtful in future. I will certainly not trust any entry to be actually correct. I have no wish to debate anything about Rangers FC. The club was founded in 1872 and is still in existence to date. There is no debate. Voting on something like this is akin to voting on whether the Earth is flat. No matter what majority of people would vote that it is flat it wouldn't alter the fact that the World is round. My use of Wikipedia after this nonsense will be extremely limited and always require a double check from an alternative and more reliable source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JCDBigBear (talkcontribs) 17:23, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Let me guess JCDBigBear, you're a Rangers fan? Oh wait, you're called "Big Bear". If you're not sure how wikipedia is run, well, it's run without bias. Andevaesen (talk) 05:16, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Rangers F.C.". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 16 August 2012.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

August 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Rangers F.C. shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. You have been asked more than once to stop edit warring on this and warned of the possible consequences. Escape Orbit (Talk) 10:11, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Reported for Edit Warring[edit]

You seem to be following me around the Rangers pages and undoing all my edits, no matter how small. The sub-section title "adminsitration & liquidation" you seem intent on using the term 'relaunched club' even though this issue was raised on the talk pages, and that term did NOT reach consensus for it's use. I've reported you for edit warring. Ricky072 (talk) 14:58, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

he isnt edit warring in fact i would suggest to spiritofgeorge to report you for POV pushing and ingore sources and not gaining consensus to change things--Andrewcrawford (talk - contrib) 16:15, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
if you have reported him where have you done it ic ant find it, and you should hav notify him with the code it tells you to notify the user with--Andrewcrawford (talk - contrib) 16:27, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rangers F.C., you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Charles Green (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.

No problem, I probably wasn't very clear. I'm trying to get the article to FA status but I'v not got a lot of time for editing it at the moment, so I'v just been adding minor things and reverting anything thet may be controversial unless its already got consensus on the talk page. Hopefully I'll get some time in the new year to sort out all the minor problems and nominate it for GA status at least! Cheers, VanguardScot 19:27, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Roll of Honour (song)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Roll of Honour (song), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion debate, such as at articles for deletion. Under the specified criteria, where an article has substantially identical content to that of an article deleted after debate, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. ww2censor (talk) 21:40, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation[edit]

Do you have a citation to a reliable source to back up the statement that you keep adding? If you only have Russian propaganda sources to back up the statement, then it could still be OK, though you would need to discuss the exact wording.-- Toddy1 (talk) 12:59, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Do you have citations to reliable sources for your other controversial edit?-- Toddy1 (talk) 13:08, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
  • I agree that «annexation» seems to be a non-neutral word — at least with some negative connotations. Since the UN is involved, and General Assembly doesn't recognize the acquisition as legal, I think, it's generally correct to say that reliable sources consider these acquisition illegal, because where do we get the international law from, if not from the UN? It's the UN who decides, what is legal according to the international law, and what's not. But if in Wikipedia, according to NPOV, we should present even more neutral view, so to mention all the existing opinions, then as long as "annexation" is a non-neutral term, I would agree to replace it with "acquisition", since Russian government prefers not to call this "annexation", and this view, as it's a side of conflict, should also be represented. Otherwise, if "annexation" is really neutral term, which means "acquisition", then there is no point to discuss. But in this case we should remove the paragraph, where it's said that Russian government denies that it's was an annexation, because then the Russian government just denies the meaning of the word. And also in the article about annexation we should remove the word «forcible». SkipTheRules (talk) 00:52, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
