    • Though I've forgotten what I said in response to the initial invitation to join, I can figure out roughly what I've said, and I think the answer is still that I'm lazy, so there wouldn't really be a point to me joining :P --V2Blast (talk) 00:53, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Alexa Nikolas in TWD[edit]

You need a source. It's not even confirmed in IMDb. 97.85.168.22 (talk) 08:44, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Verified in the show credits. n/m 97.85.168.22 (talk) 09:59, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I didn't make the original change anyway. I just reverted an unsourced change to another part of the page and then re-added the listing. (And yeah, it just took time to show up on IMDb; it was mentioned on other sites as well as (obviously) in the show credits.) --V2Blast (talk) 23:53, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Carnegie Mellon University people, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page George Wood (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.

Your username[edit]

Hello. Your username suggests a V-2 rocket, and therefore violence. Would you please consider changing your username to something more appropriate? Hoops gza (talk) 19:30, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

  • ...No? People have all sorts of ridiculous usernames. I'm pretty sure there are no guidelines against having "V2" in my username. --V2Blast (talk) 20:18, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

I think having "V2Blast" as your username might be a problem.Hoops gza (talk) 20:46, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Doesn't seem to be a problem for anyone but you. --V2Blast (talk) 20:51, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

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.

Template overuse[edit]

Please consider improving articles yourself instead of adding multiple huge templates to the top of every article for trivial issues like "lead too long". 24.224.197.195 (talk) 16:01, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Specifically with the Animelo Summer Live page, I'd like more constructive suggestions than just having "multiple issues" flagged. I've attended in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 so I have some idea of what it's like and the people involved. The Japanese media doesn't have the same culture of reviewing events such as these, so, suggestions on reliable secondary sources would be welcome, as would suggestions on how to better arrange information on that page. PS, I don't usually log in to do edits. Splouge (talk) 20:01, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I agree. These useless templates stick around for ever and that's why I made this edit summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Singapore&diff=next&oldid=710165518
BushelCandle (talk) 10:12, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
The reason I added that template there was because most Wikipedia articles don't need 21 external links (not counting the ones in the boxes on the right), and I wasn't sure which links would be most important to keep - if I knew which links would be best to remove, I would have done it myself... I suspect that the article does not need to link to 9 different government websites, though. --V2Blast (talk) 16:48, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for taking the trouble to explain your reasoning.
Most of Wikipedia's 5 million odd articles are not about whole countries (presumably less than 300 are). Personally I think your suspicions are wrong. Which is why I wrote what I did above and in my reverting edit summary. Vague suspicions are not that helpful when they're enshrined in an overly prominent (but annoyingly vague) template that will endure for years and probably long after you're no longer around to dialogue with... BushelCandle (talk) 07:49, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Could I have some specific pointers on improving the Animelo Summer Live page? If there are no specific suggestions on improving the issues so that I and others could continue to address the issues and improve the references and layout of the articles, I feel that the flagging of multiple issues should be removed as it hasn't helped improve things.

Splouge (talk) 19:16, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Suggestions besides finding more sources... You might want to move the info about title/date/location/list of performers for each year into infoboxes (if an appropriate infobox template exists, or otherwise convert it into prose. You should also convert the track listings to use Template:Track listing and use the "collapsed" parameter to have each track list be collapsed by default (which would also make it easier to read each item in each tracklist). In addition, you should add information about the notability/significance of the event (citing reliable secondary sources as appropriate – I see a few links at the bottom that aren't cited in the article, so those might be a good start). Also, some minor notes... Section/subsection headings should follow sentence case (as per WP:NCCAPS) other than proper nouns, so headings like "Special Guest"/"Secret Guest" should be "Special guest"/"Secret guest" – though honestly, a list of two items doesn't really need its own subsection (that can just be mentioned in prose within the main section itself). And finally, as per WP:EL, external links (i.e. links to pages outside Wikipedia) do not belong in the body of the text; they may be used as references (in footnotes) as necessary, but should not appear in the body text itself. I converted a few into citations, but there are probably others, as I didn't check the whole page. Anyway, hopefully you found my suggestions helpful! --V2Blast (talk) 13:42, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
