Note[edit]

I deleted the first version of your userpage because you made inappropriate sexual comments about specific people. Don't do that. DS (talk) 20:09, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Constructive contributions are appreciated and strongly encouraged, but your recent edit to the userpage of another user may be considered vandalism. Specifically, your edit to User:DragonflySixtyseven may be offensive or unwelcome. In general it is considered polite to avoid substantially editing others' userpages without their permission. Instead, please bring the matter to their talk page and let them edit their user page themselves if they agree on a need to do so. Please refer to Wikipedia:User page for more information on User page etiquette. Thank you. snigbrook (talk) 23:18, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

August 2010[edit]

I've undone your improper cut-n-paste move of Expanding Earth. Please discuss your concerns about the article title on the talk page. Vsmith (talk) 01:34, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Which you did, not only without discussion, but without moving the history, thus copyright violation. And to a title I don't think anyone would ever be likely to search for directly. Dougweller (talk) 05:06, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Midwest High Speed Rail[edit]

Speedy deletion nomination of Shakira (dog)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Shakira (dog) 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. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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 biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles – see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Drmies (talk) 16:36, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

March 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia! I am glad to see you are interested in discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Transit City are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you. Though I agree about your comment that I removed in that article (but not that extreme), it is not a place to chat. Urban Toronto is the correct place to discuss this. Thank you. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 00:50, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Rob Ford, you may be blocked from editing. Materialscientist (talk) 01:47, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

April 2011[edit]

An image or media file has been removed from your userpage, user talk page, or other page because it was licensed as non-free. Wikipedia's non-free policy states that Copyrighted images under fair use are only allowed to be used in articles about the subject of the image, and only if no free equivalent is available. For example they are not allowed to be used on user pages, in lists, or (typically) in biographies of living people.. As a result, although users are often given a great amount of latitude in the type of content that is allowed on their user pages, it is requested that you abide by this policy. Feel free, however, to add images and media files licensed under other terms. For more information, see Wikipedia's non-free content policy and an accompanying essay on the removal of non-freeimages. Further use of these images will be considered vandalism, and shall be treated as such. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. ΔT The only constant 13:45, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

re-adding those images will lead to you being blocked. ΔT The only constant 13:48, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

You've been blocked for 24 hours for edit warring, violating copyright, personal attacks, and failing to get the point. The reason you should not do these was explained to you clearly by Δ, however, you continue to argue. Copyright is not a rule which is up for debate among Wikipedians. Please note that the fair use rationale only applies in very limited circumstances, which using them in your own userspace does not fall within, hence the images were removed. If you indicate that you understand these issues and will not persist in violating policy (the opposite of which is indicated here), then you may be unblocked. - Kingpin13 (talk) 14:35, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia is just crazy. If the entire point of it is to add information to the world, then why are there barriers.ThisguyYEAH (talk) 14:45, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Your userspace is not part of the encyclopedia. We have a strict policy against the use of non-free images outside of the actual article namespace. There's no choice about this. You can either comply with the policy, or not. Your choice. --Hammersoft (talk) 23:42, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Please do not add or change content without verifying it by citing reliable sources, as you did to Rob Ford. Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Wikipelli Talk 20:36, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Scjessey. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to Barack Obama because it didn't appear constructive. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! Scjessey (talk) 15:24, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Your image File:AnglophoneWorld.svg[edit]

There are a few issues with the image that need to be resolved first, which has given me reason to revert its use for now. They include:

  • English, while not primarily used in casual conversation, is still a widely used language in the Philippines with nearly 80% of the population able to speak it fluently, and is frequently used in business and on official documents. So why is it colored light blue?
  • Meanwhile, English is just one of the many languages used in South Africa, alongside ones like Afrikaans, Zulu, and many others with official status. It is not even the primary language of most of the population as only 30% can speak English and only 10% speak it natively.
  • The categorization of the other African countries into widely used (blue) and not widely used (light blue) is also not sourced.
  • The biggest issue is, what exactly is "primary working language" supposed to mean? That phrase is vague, not clarified, and not sourced, and therefore the three categories seem arbitrary without them.

Until these issues are fixed and sources are linked to directly verify the accuracy of this map, it will have to be reverted from English language for now. I am not saying a map like this with three categories shouldn't be used, but it should at least be accurate and sourced. I have posted the same message to Talk:English language where this should be discussed. Cadiomals (talk) 12:55, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
