Maps[edit]

The maps work perfectly. Somehow, Wikimedia Commons had zapped the PNG rendering of the locater dot. I've re-uploaded it, and it works fine.

Sometimes a screwdriver is better than a sledgehammer.

Great power[edit]

You made comments on the Great power talk page to the effect that Italy was not a great power, and then you added it to the list of unquestioned Great powers. Am I missing something?

I didn't notice your comments at first (they were interspersed, I only noticed it on the edit history) so I reverted your change a little too hastily, I'm afraid. Was your change intentional? If so, what made you change your mind? If not, my hasty revert ends up working properly by accident.

Forget it, I don't know what I'm talking about. I put the article back the way you had it. I must have been delusional or something... CRGreathouse (t | c) 03:16, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

Please use caution when reverting[edit]

I reverted your senseless reversion the Freedom in the World article. That phrase is already in the intro to the article; there's no need to repeat it four more times. I will be watching the article; be careful not to cross the line between careless reversion and vandalism. 4.226.60.27 03:12, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Please bring your opinions to discussion before reverting. [1] Citing a nearly year old poll is incorrect as, for one, polls are not consensus, and for another... its over a year old. Discussion has occured, and an actual consensus has been formed as well. ~Rangeley (talk) 22:23, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Please bring it to discussion before reverting again. ~Rangeley (talk) 23:09, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Please do not revert without discussing, as you did at Iraq War. There is disucssion ongoing on the talk page, and when we arrive at some consensus, the article will be edited accordingly. Your input would be greatly welcome in the discussion at Talk:Iraq War. -GTBacchus(talk) 23:10, 26 January 2007 (UTC)


Libyan Civil War[edit]

Hey, there was a disambiguation page created for "libyan civil war" located here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libyan_civil_war. Having read your comments on the validity of the pre-2011 'libyan' conflicts I figured you might be interested in weighing in on whether having a disambiguation page is worthwhile or not. The discussion is located here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Redirects_for_discussion#Libyan_Civil_War. 174.114.87.236 (talk) 07:36, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to North–South divide (England) may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Information icon Hello, I'm Iryna Harpy. I noticed that you removed topically-relevant content from Russia. However, Wikipedia is not censored to remove content that might be considered objectionable. Please do not remove or censor information that directly relates to the subject of the article.

The information in question was incorrect.

No, it was correct. Please learn to check cited sources before deleting them. I have now included the PDF source. If you are in doubt, refer it to the talk page. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 09:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)


Disruptive editing in article "Greek bailout referendum, 2015"[edit]

Please use talk pages and put up your arguments if you delete relevant content. If the left-wing professors are grouped in a para here is no sense to delete the essence of the grouping, that they are all left.--EconomicsEconomics (talk) 07:39, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for constructive edits.--EconomicsEconomics (talk) 09:39, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Greek bailout referendum, 2015 edit warring[edit]

You've deleted a tag pointing to a discussion on the talk page. This is three times you have reverted me. Take the matter to the discussion page. I see above you have already been warned of this issue. You'll be reported for edit warring very swiftly if you revert me again.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history 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 get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's 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.

This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Disambiguation link notification for March 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Local government in Northern Ireland, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Bangor and Colerain. 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) 10:37, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
