To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your user page. By the way, seeing as you haven't created a user page yet, simply click here to start it.

December 2014[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Cross Ange. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. -- Orduin T 22:41, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of minor DC Comics characters, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Starfire (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:53, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

How I Met Your Mother edit[edit]

Thank you for trying to help at How I Met Your Mother (season 1), but I'm afraid I've reverted your changes. The article is currently a featured list which means it's undergone a rigorous process to make sure it's just about as good as it possibly can be. This doesn't mean you can't still edit the article, but it means you should be very, very careful when editing. Your edit added a more detailed description of one of the show's episodes ("Milk"), but season articles are not for detailed descriptions. The individual article for the episode is where more complete descriptions of the episode should be found (and even then, try to stick to 200-400 words); season articles just give a quick overview, so people don't want all the details there. Thanks for reading this — if you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. — Bilorv(talk)(c)(e) 08:39, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

Hi Tophet, I've reverted your removal of red links from List of legendary creatures from Japan, as they are usually there for a purpose - please see Wikipedia:Red link. It would also be helpful to other editors if you provide an edit summary to explain why you are making a particular change. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 14:15, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyright[edit]

Control copyright icon Hello Tophet, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to List of Lab Rats episodes 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. Geraldo Perez (talk) 14:34, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Moria (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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. 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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:07, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Citations needed![edit]

Hi Tophet. You keep having contributions reverted because you don't back them up by citing reliable, scholarly sources. I see what you mean by your descriptor of Atlas (mythology) as the "Titan of Endurance"; but that's a poetic, mythic term. It doesn't justify your giving any formal or divine status to Atlas as a personification or patron deity of endurance - the same applies to the material you wrote on constellations - unless you can give a citation. By the way, please note the request that you give an edit summary for every edit you make. That can save a lot of time and trouble all round. Haploidavey (talk) 14:08, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Well...ahem - I see you've given a sound source for at least one of your additions; so I've now restored it. Reversion in that instance was an error on my part. Sorry! Haploidavey (talk) 14:27, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

But another editor, having access to the source you provided, has now reverted my self-reversion. It seems that your citation does not support your edit, after all. Haploidavey (talk) 00:05, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Okay[edit]

Please fix up your edit by Removing The Unnecessary Capitalization. link (I don't know if your edit is accurate or not so I'm still thinking it's dubious but I haven't the time to check right now.) Next time please don't revert someone's revert with no edit summary. It can make people cranky. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 20:25, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

Tophet: I understand, though in fairness, those in capital letters are the names of the demonic orders that I wanted to emphasize.

How to sign[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 20:56, 23 February 2016 (UTC)

March 2016[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Tophet, but we cannot accept original research. Original research refers to material—such as facts, allegations, ideas, and personal experiences—for which no reliable, published sources exist; it also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. Ogress 17:28, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 31[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Unspoken, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Inhuman and New Avengers (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.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of demons in the Ars Goetia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Spectre (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Proposed deletion of Unspoken (comics)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Unspoken (comics) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

non notable character with only primary sources

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
