Disambiguation link notification for August 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Merion Estes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page M.F.A.. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:28, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

spaces in the cite web template[edit]

Hi Spray787, would you mind not to remove the spaces before each "|" in the cite web template as you have done it in St. Gallen?! Besides that it helps to read it more easily, it is necessary to have the long reference text more accurately word wrapped in a source editor. Please, would you mind to reverse it, thanks. -- ZH8000 (talk) 18:21, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Notice[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Maxine Grimm shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your 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.

Arbitration case request declined[edit]

Hi, Spray787. I'm Kevin, an arbitration clerk. In response to your recently-filed request for arbitration, members of the Arbitration Committee have determined that arbitration is not required at this stage. Arbitration on Wikipedia is a lengthy, complicated process that involves the unilateral adjudication of a dispute by an elected committee. Although the Committee's decisions can be useful to certain disputes, in many cases the actual process of arbitration is unenjoyable and time-consuming. Moreover, for most disputes the community maintains an effective set of mechanisms for reaching a compromise or resolving a grievance.

Disputes among editors regarding the content of an article should use structured discussion on the talk page between the disputing editors. However, requests for comment, third opinions and other venues are available if discussion alone does not yield a consensus. The dispute resolution noticeboard exists as a first point of call for disputes that are not resolved by discussion, and the Mediation Committee provides formal mediation for advanced content disputes.

For grievances about the conduct of a Wikipedia editor, you should approach the user (in a civil, professional way) on their user talk page. However, other mechanisms for resolving a dispute also exist, such as raising the issue at the administrators' noticeboard for incidents.

In all cases, you should review Wikipedia:Dispute resolution to learn more about resolving disputes on Wikipedia. The English Wikipedia community has many venues for resolving disputes and grievances, and it is important to explore them instead of requesting arbitration in the first instance. For more information on the process of arbitration, please see the Arbitration Policy and the Guide to Arbitration. I hope this advice is useful, and please do not hesitate to contact a member of the community if you have more questions.

For the Arbitration Committee, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 16:13, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

  • I left a comment at the request, which subsequent to the decline of the case is no longer present on the page. I said there, "As to the issue itself, I refer you to Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Days where it says "Articles on topics with strong ties to a particular English-speaking country should generally use the more common date format for that country". This bears out that you are wrong. She is an American citizen, and the ONLY English speaking (primarily) country she has ties to is the United States. In the end, this is an empty dispute. It doesn't matter what format the dates are in. Everyone will understand it, regardless. " This may help give you some insight regarding the issue itself. I also heartily encourage you to read the advice above about dispute resolution. ArbCom is a last resort, not a first step. --Hammersoft (talk) 16:32, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Guasdualito runway heading[edit]

Hi Spray787

I changed the runway heading for Guasdualito back to 06/24. West variation is added to the true heading to get mag runway headings. Regardless, whatever they paint on the runway becomes the runway name even if it isn't the real mag heading. Feb 2016 image: https://www.google.com/maps/@7.2059834,-70.763773,229m/data=!3m1!1e3

Beulah Bettersworth[edit]

Can you please explain why you converted the referencing on the above referenced file from Harvard referencing? It is much easier to read and edit the file if the referencing is not part of the text of the body certainly accepted by WP MOS. Please ping me with your response and note that if I do not hear back from you, I will revert the changes, as they have no apparent value and did not add substantially to what was already known.

Speedy deletion nomination of Cherry Peak Resort[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 Cherry Peak Resort requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 "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, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 16:28, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

John Varah Long copyright problem[edit]

I have removed content you added to the above article, as it appears to have been copied from http://www.kensandersbooks.com/shop/rarebooks/john-varah-long, a copyright web page. All content you add to Wikipedia must be written in your own words. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions or if you think I made a mistake. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 00:38, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Tiger Style![edit]

Hello, Spray787. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Tiger Style!, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.
