Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Highbridge Park, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Washington Heights (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

You're pushing a fringe theory, and if you won't talk about it, you're liable to end up getting blocked. So stop it NOW. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 14:57, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

(Don't Fear) The Reaper[edit]

Please stop adding pop culture items to this article without including sources establishing their significance. You may wish to review WP:IPC. Cheers. Doniago (talk) 16:18, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Changes to (Don't fear) The Reaper[edit]

Sorry friend, I don't subscribe to the 'significance theory' of 'pop culture'; I deal with fact only. Just listed the media sources where the song was used.

'More Cowbell;' has its own page, and I placed a link to the entire segment. A description of the SNL skit is unwarranted on the page itself; the skit is subservient to the song, not the other way around. Please respect the song, and the edits. thanks.

You're welcome to believe what you'd like, but this matter was discussed at the article's Talk page previously and is supported by WP:IPC. Please discuss at the article's Talk page before reverting and inserting pop culture items w/no clear significance. Thank you for your understanding. Doniago (talk) 14:45, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello The rakish fellow, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II‎ has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied or translated without attribution. If you want to copy or translate from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Fnlayson (talk) 15:58, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Pluto, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Titan.

Leave Description[edit]

I noticed that you recently edited the Boston Celtics page while you removed content from the introduction paragraphs. You did this while not including a description of what your edit was about. In the future, please leave a description of your edits so wikipedians can understand your changes more easily. I have temporarily reverted your edit because of the lack of description.--RichieConant (talk) 18:37, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

July 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm A guy saved by Jesus. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Shane Victorino without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content.

Your draft article, Draft:Dyckman Street Fault[edit]

Hello, The rakish fellow. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "Dyckman Street Fault".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Puffin Let's talk! 08:53, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

References[edit]

Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:29, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

WP:COMMONNAME – Fat Lever[edit]

Please do not move Fat Lever to Lafayette Lever, per COMMONNAME: Wikipedia generally prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in a significant majority of independent, reliable English-language sources). He was/is known professionally as "Fat". Also, Google hits are 44,300 ("Fat Lever") to 12,100 ("Lafayette Lever"). It's why Doc Rivers' article isn't titled Glenn Rivers, for instance. I can see you're new at editing Wikipedia, but please familiarize yourself with some of the core naming conventions before moving articles. Thank you. Jrcla2 (talk) 05:19, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Lafayette Lever ‎. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.Bagumba (talk) 16:31, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
