Eton[edit]

Please stop changing the classification of Eton College as a public school; it is the most famous school under this category. If you believe this label needs to be debated, please do so at Talk:Eton College. Otherwise, you may be temporarily blocked from editing Wikipedia for vandalism. Harro5 06:16, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Is the Dragon no longer a prep school?[edit]

I thought the term prep school was still current. Could the Dragon not be a prep school and independent? Jpaulm 02:23, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Naparima College[edit]

Regarding this edit: the independent school article describes an independent school as "a school which is not dependent upon national or local government for financing its operation and is instead operated by tuition charges, gifts, and in some cases the investment yield of an endowment." On what basis do you believe that this applies to this school? Guettarda 18:15, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Barack Obama[edit]

Please stop characterizing Obama's high school as "exclusive private." That may well be the case, but in order to make characterizations such as these, reliable sources must be provided as references in the article text. In any event, the proper place for that type of information is most likely in the article on the school, not articles on persons that happen to have attended it. · j e r s y k o talk · 14:18, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

LocationFree[edit]

What is this license of which you speak? I am a long-time PSP user and I have no idea what you mean, so many others may be similarly confused. Please explain in article. Thanks. 86.17.211.191 22:22, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Couch (Korean punk rock band)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Couch (Korean punk rock band) 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 a band, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. chiefhuggybear (talk) 04:08, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Heroes Article[edit]

Hello

I appreciate your enthusiasm for the BBC information on the HEROES page, however, all content added to wikipedia needs to be presented at high standards. Please make sure that anytime you add new information to the HEROES page or any page, that you provide a verified source from a verified reference. Your information on HEROES airing in the UK is very informative, however, it has no sources to prove that what you are saying is correct. If you want to add information, it should be sourced. Also, remember that wikipedia is presenting an entire scope of the series. HEROES is an American Television series, so it is not important to add detailed information about it airings in every country around the world. If we added detailed information about HEROES airings in every country in the world, the HEROES article would be too long to contain. It is not necessary to add information to the HEROES page about the detailed airings of HEROES in the UK. I have provided a brief summary on the main page that is substantial for this encyclopedia. If you have any questions, need advice or mentoring on how to use wikipedia, please feel free to write me back. Reliable sources must be provided as references in the article text. I reverted your edits. Please do not take them personally, but rather, consider the entire scope of the HEROES series, rather than just what is happening on the BBC. Thanks...CHEERS!--ChrisisinChrist comments and complaints here! 00:16, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Seb Clover[edit]

In this edit a while back you added that he was educated at a certain school. Can you tell me where you got that information from? - Mgm|(talk) 23:09, 17 November 2008 (UTC

Yes, certainly. It was named on both BBC News and by ITN (Independent Television News), which both featured reports in which Clover's school colleagues at Ryde School were interviewed in the classrooms, on Clover's first day back at school. Tai kit (talk) 17:47, 8 December 2010 (UTC)Tai Kit

British vs English[edit]

Please don't change people's nationalities from English to British. Respect how the article was originally written. People have very strong and opposing views on this topic and you should not impose your own view by changing established articles. Take a look at Wikipedia:Nationality of people from the United Kingdom, which might explain why articles should be left alone. --TimTay (talk) 10:03, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Westminster School[edit]

Please stop changing the classification of Westminster School as a public school; it is one of the original public schools under the Public Schools Act 1868 and falls under this category. If you believe this label needs to be debated, please do so at Talk:Westminster School. Tmwerty (talk) 15:09, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, you changed it again. I've told my reasons for its labelling, and I can see that the term public school can cause problems, but it is linked to page that explains it and I will change it back. If you disagree, please leave a message on me talk page; I don't want to start an edit war. Tmwerty (talk) 19:23, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Malvern College[edit]

Information.png Hi Tai kit! Malvern College is an article you have edited or contributed to concerns an important school. It still needs some urgent attention. If you can help, please see Talk:Malvern College#Lead Section regarding how it may be improved. --Kudpung (talk) 08:13, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Changes to UK school infoboxes[edit]

Hi, I see you've been changing the country field of this infobox in several schools to United Kingdom. However according to the documentation for template:infobox UK school this should be the constituent country (England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland). Also, adding "pupils" or "students" after the enrollment field yields the redundant display "Students 500 pupils". Kanguole 11:35, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Thomas Price (actor)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Thomas Price (actor) 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 a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

Articles for deletion nomination of Thomas Price (actor)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Thomas Price (actor), an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Thomas Price (actor). Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Capitals in names[edit]

Hi, I see that you have capitalized Chinese names in a number of articles. Please do not capitalize these. See WP:NC-CHINA on how names should be written. Do revert all these name changes as soon as possible. Thank you. -- S Masters (talk) 04:12, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Simon King[edit]

Please stop editing Simon Kings page reference his education. He never has attended Wells Cathedral school, despite the wrong information on certain sites, They have been told to remove this false information.  — [Unsigned comment added by Smileeej (talkcontribs) 11:20, 25 April 2010.]

Says who? There are clearly published sources showing that King attended Wells Cathedral school. Where are your sources/proof that he did not? --Simple Bob (talk) 11:04, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Genitals[edit]

Hello, I've noticed in a few articles that you have gone into great detail about actors' gentials in nude scenes, for example: "with his pubic hair, testicles and circumcised penis fully exposed" in Cold Showers. We don't really need this much information in an encyclopedia article, unless you can show that there is coverage of this in reliable sources. It is enough to mention a nude scene, if that is notable; even nude scenes do not always need to be mentioned.--BelovedFreak 11:14, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

April 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits.

Countries vs. Kingdoms[edit]

The Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of England both ceased to exist in 1707, when their parliaments voted to unite to form the Kingdom of Great Britain (which subsequently became the United Kingdom.

Scotland and England are countries. They haven't been kingdoms for several centuries.

Sockpuppetry case[edit]

Your name has been mentioned in connection with a sockpuppetry case. Please refer to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Tai kit for evidence. Please make sure you make yourself familiar with the guide to responding to cases before editing the evidence page. -- AnmaFinotera (talk · contribs) 05:33, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

After looking at the SPI case above, I believe you have clearly used the mentioned IP addresses to engage in edit warring on City Without Baseball. If you do anything like this again, you will have your editing privileges revoked; this is your first and only warning for this. Regards, –MuZemike 02:32, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your remarks. As I have made clear in the User Talk section of 'City Without Baseball', I don't know anyone in Thailand, from where those edits to my Wikipedia page allegedly originated, and have neither the time, technical ability nor the inclination to somehow manipulate the accounts of other users in other countries, or to vandalise my own work. I think it would be better if you were to devote your time to finding and warning those responsible for damaging my work, rather than needlessly tarnishing the reputation of an established user with groundless allegations. I believe I deserve an apology from you, and hope to receive one, once your allegations are proven to be entirely false. Tai kit (talk) 09:05, 7 July 2010 (UTC)Tai Kit

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:14, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit summaries again[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Redruth. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Hi. You are a fellow established WP editor, who should know that Edit summaries are part of consensus. Another editor asked you to supply them, back in April, but was ignored. Wikipedia relies on wp:consensus, and our all adhering to its guidelines.

One such is wp:ES#Always provide an edit summary. Please could you either adhere to it, or state why the consensus doesn't apply in your case.

I note that you've sought to defend your reputation on other matters. I'm glad that you value others' collective opinions.

May I leave you with this thought - for now:

Tip of the day...


Please summarize your work using the Edit summary box

If you make anything other than a minor edit to an article, it helps others if you fill in the edit summary. Edit summaries are visible in the page history, watchlists, and on Recent changes, so they help others users keep track of what's happening to a page. If you use section editing, the summary box is filled in with the section heading by default (in gray text), which you can follow with more detail. You also can put links to articles in the edit summary. Just put double brackets around [[the article title]] like you would normally. The summary is limited to 200 characters, so many people use common abbreviations, such as sp for correcting spelling mistakes.

Prior tip - Next tip

I would be happy to have your thoughts on ESs, & to discuss this issue with you, here. Trafford09 (talk) 14:59, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi Trafford09,
Thank you very much for your remarks and useful insights. I always value others' contributions, both collectively and individually. I must apologise for having misunderstood one of the aspects of the editing process: I hadn't realised that it was always obligatory to provide a reason for editing, and had understood that whilst it was certainly preferable if, for example, the reason for the editing was unclear, it wasn't always necessary, especially if the editing was comparatively minor. However, I shall try to remember to do so for future edits. But I certainly haven't deliberately 'ignored' an Editor's request to supply them, as you put it, and as I really can't remember having seen one, I think that if I had noticed it at the time, I must have promptly forgotten it. I shall look back through many pages to try to find it, and then to respond to him/her. I really appreciate your having brought this to my attention, and for having taken the time and trouble to do so.
However, I think we shouldn't assume the 'bad faith' of another member here, which is implied in some of your remarks, unless we have definitive proof of malicious intent. There needs to be the presumption of human fallibility in such cases, of honest misunderstanding and the desire to do the 'right thing'. Incidentally, I don't think I had realised that the granting of the status of a Reviewer was the same as that of a fully-fledged WP Editor. I shall read the rules again, this time more closely than before, and endeavour to remember to apply all of them for future edits.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Yours, T.C. Tai kit (talk) 16:31, 8 December 2010 (UTC)Tai Kit

Hi TC. Thanks for the prompt reply - appreciated. I'm glad you don't mind discussing ESs. I always try to wp:AGF, and had not forsaken good faith with you - sorry if I gave that impression - indeed I hoped you would respond. To save you trouble looking up the prior concern which as I said was from April, here it is. Not that that matters - it's just history, if you hadn't seen it at the time, and you're happy to follow the guideline.

BTW, I think we editors all essentially enjoy the same standing, admins. apart I suppose (of whom I'm not one).

As for ESs, well they help vandal-patrollers a lot, and needn't of course be long, just a "+cat" or "c-e" & indeed we registered users also have the 'minor' flag at our disposal. When patrollers see an ES or minor flag ticked, they don't need to open and check each edit for authenticity, you see. I'm sure with your elegance of words you'd have no trouble in thinking up concise ESs.

Thank you for your understanding, and happy editing. Trafford09 (talk) 17:02, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Revived interest in Infernal Affairs[edit]

Invitation to participate in the poll for Infernal Affairs.

From your edits for the film Infernal Affairs there is presently a poll taking place on The Departed film Talk page regarding whether you believe a separate subsection should be included for (a) Infernal Affairs as a source for the plot of The Departed film, and/or (b) a second subsection for the recently captured crime figure Whitey Bulger as the source for the character played by Jack Nicholson in the film.

The recent capture of Bulger has revived the question from two years ago of Infernal Affairs from when it did have a separate subsection on The Departed film page which was deleted by User:RepublicanJ, now known as User:OldJ. Invite to visit The Departed Talk page, to the Bulger section at the end of the Page, to participate in the Poll currently taking place. 208.120.96.227 (talk) 11:09, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Battle of the Somme 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. Chris Troutman (talk) 08:21, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Move reverted.[edit]

Information icon Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Your bold move of Star Appeal has been reverted because an editor has found it to be controversial. Per Wikipedia:Requested moves, a move request must be placed on the article's talk page, and the request be open for discussion for seven days, "if there is any reason to believe a move would be contested". If you believe that this move is appropriate, please initiate such a discussion. Please note that moving a page with a longstanding title and/or a large number of incoming links is more likely to be considered controversial, and may be contested. bd2412 T 14:53, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

As someone who has edited the article Asian American this year, I am seeking your input on a proposed change to remove a reference to epicanthic eyefolds. This topic has prompted discussion in 2009, 2010 and most recently in 2013.

There's a fine line between being WP:BOLD and subverting WP:CONSENSUS. Given the history of this topic, I'm hoping that a robust discussion, for the record, would improve the article whether this reference stays or goes. Ishu (talk) 13:48, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
