April 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm Yobol. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Edit-warring[edit]

There was no "edit-warring" going on. The article was biased and inaccurate, which really surprised me because I usually find Wiki info very interesting, easy to access and helpful (one of the reasons I stop to edit and improve an article when I can) and as a review of my edits shows, I tried to improve the Orthomolecular article without deleting salvageable text (even if I thought the "salvageable" text was awkwardly worded). I wasn't as familiar at that time with referencing and my edits would be improved with references but I have not bothered to improve the section because it took considerable time and thought to "improve" the article the first time, only to end in reversion without any prior discussion of the improvements and merits. Because the internet has some excellent sites (including all the Nobel Prize references to the 2X winning Father of Orthomolecular Medicine) the biased and inaccurate Wiki page just gives readers a bad impression of Wiki -- as they click out and move on to more accurate and informative sources). Wiki is only as good as its editors/authors and I think that is why Wiki has a hard time raising money to keep Wiki going. Startarrant (talk) 05:35, 30 January 2015 (UTC)startarrant

                  ---------- reply to extremely biased edit warriors below ------------

Your recent editing history at orthomolecular medicine shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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.

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. MastCell Talk 19:19, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Orthomolecular medicine with this edit. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Yintan²  19:21, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to blank out or remove portions of page content, templates or other materials from Wikipedia, as you did to Orthomolecular medicine with this edit, you may be blocked from editing. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 19:56, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Seed of the woman, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page House of David. 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.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Nuesta Madre 01.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Nuesta Madre 01.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

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.

Orphaned non-free image File:Rev Mother Maria Concepcion of the Perpetual Help of Mary 1971.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Rev Mother Maria Concepcion of the Perpetual Help of Mary 1971.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 00:08, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Name of God[edit]

Thanks for the note. I meant the Talk:God page. It sounds like you think the I Am that I Am should change its name, but that article does say that it is "the common English translation..." In any case, you will need really good sources saying that "I Am Who Am" is the better translation. StAnselm (talk) 12:13, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

No more infoboxes[edit]

For being a person of "God", you sure do lie thru your teeth and love deceit.

Stop emailing and bothering me. Stop leaving messages on my talk page. Stop adding the infobox. Stop with the copyright problems. Stop saying "Our Lord" and "Our God" in the article. This is not your personal page to play with. I'm not going to help anymore as I don't take well to lies and harassment. Bgwhite (talk) 05:33, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of María Concepción of the Nativity and the Perpetual Help of Mary[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article María Concepción of the Nativity and the Perpetual Help of Mary has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Only her own book is the reference for the article. There needs to be multiple, independent and reliable sources about here. Her book doesn't count as it is not independent.

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Bgwhite (talk) 06:35, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

File source problem with File:MSchwartz 6-6-1970.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:MSchwartz 6-6-1970.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file 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. 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 refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

[1] Please do not reupload the image to circumvent the closed discussion. Edits like this will not have any traction. You posted on the image this image is my own work; source no longer exists; etc—if so, you need documentation of owning the image, since it is clearly a scan from another source and you have not explained how you hold the copyright. (It doesn't fall under fair use, public domain, wiki commons public photo, etc.) The image likely belongs to its photographer or the originating newspaper unless it has been expressly transferred. If you hold the copyright, email your consent and open license declaration from an official email. If you don't hold the copyright, then you can't publish it under a free license. I am no longer watching this page—ping if you'd like a response czar 13:47, 21 June 2017 (UTC)


I really need the vandalization of this page/photo ended: The discussion and action taken on the talk page for the site is clear --

  • Sfan00 -- I MAY have located the "source" problem as the wizard did not indicate this info was required and I uploaded the file using the wiki wizard which clearly specifies the copyright and content are public domain wiki common usage and yes, I created that particular file from archive material that is also within my own publishing company's copyright domain but the photo belongs to universal historic material that is public domain and wiki common usage. Therefore, I don't even limit it to my copyright privileges. I thought that when we upload using the wiki wizard that the wizard shows the copyright status and that it would also show that I created the content and uploaded it (as it must since you contacted me).
  • But I am not an expert and would appreciate any help that fits my pay grade so that that photo is not "vandalized" by deletions when it is clearly apropos to the subject and readership of that wiki page and content. I've used the wizard several times and I thought I got it right this time and that there would be no confusion about the public domain wiki common usage nature of the photo. I hope I have clarified any "source" questions as both the publication and photographer no longer exist. (This is the only hotlink that directs me to any substantive person or discussion on this matter.) Thanks, Sfan00 for your interest and help. I hope my edits have resolved the matter and there is no need for any further bother over this. Readers of wiki pages (myself included) appreciate all the effort that page editors muster to make wiki the accurate, complete, excellent and the "instant" resource internet users expect. As a part-time editor, I appreciate any help and corrections to make my edits as accurate and complete as possible Startarrant (talk) 08:20, 6 December 2016
  • (UTC) startarrant Startarrant (talk) 12:30, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

I will redo yet another form and upload but all of the previous have been correct and sufficient as per the very clear explanations. So vandalism by bots that cannot read or think and any others needs to stop. I don't think the template on the discussion page is necessary for this but I will submit the email since artificial intelligence does not seem to be able to accept what is clearly acceptable for all other similar public domain photos on wiki pages -- but IF more dots and tittles or template emails are needed for ai comfort and an END to ai vandalism ...
