A summary of site guidelines and policies you may find useful[edit]

  • Reliable sources typically include: articles from magazines or newspapers (particularly scholarly journals), or books by recognized authors (basically, books by respected publishers). Online versions of these are usually accepted, provided they're held to the same standards. User generated sources (like Wikipedia) are to be avoided. Self-published sources should be avoided except for information by and about the subject that is not self-serving (for example, citing a company's website to establish something like year of establishment).
  • Please do not add references which serve no purpose, such as adding sources made redundant by already existing sources, particularly without adding any new information. Ian.thomson (talk) 17:15, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

February 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Archaeology and the Book of Mormon‎ shows that you are in danger of breaking the three-revert rule, or that you may have already broken it. 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. Breaking the three-revert rule often leads to a block.

If you wish to avoid being blocked, instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to discuss the changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. 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 may still be blocked for edit warring even if you do not exceed the technical limit of the three-revert rule if your behavior indicates that you intend to continue to revert repeatedly.

Deleting comment[edit]

Hello, Tapirrider, unfortunately there seems to be a misunderstanding. I did not delete your comment, I moved it to a new section (at the bottom) so we can discuss it. Please refer to the Talk:Archaeology and the Book of Mormon page. Again, sorry for the misunderstanding. -- Lindert (talk) 12:20, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
