Award-winning[edit]

Please take a look at the Film Style Guidelines. The terms 'award-winning', 'Academy Award-winning', 'Academy Award-nominated' etc., have no place in a lead sentence. WikiKingOfMishawaka (talk) 23:32, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

August 2008[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop your disruptive editing, such as the edit you made to The Incredibles. If your vandalism continues, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. You've been warned about adding 'award-winning' to lead sentences. Further instances will get you blocked. Understand? WikiKingOfMishawaka (talk) 13:52, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

November 2008[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of previously published material to our articles as you apparently did to Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Please cite a reliable source for all of your information. Thank you. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 23:44, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Awards in intro[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to point out that for film/TV articles that the intro sentence should not include information about the awards it won/was nominated for. If we include it, the article is not following WP:NPOV. It's fine to mention it later in the intro with more explanation, along with other awards it may have won. We don't want to favor one award over another since we're doing an impartial look at the topic. Let me know if you have any questions. Happy editing! --Nehrams2020 (talk) 23:19, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

january 2009[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did to Spider-Man 2, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. --duo (talk) 21:44, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the only warning you will receive for your disruptive edits. You will be blocked from editing the next time you vandalize a page, as you did with this edit to Trauma: Life in the E.R.. Ipatrol (talk) 22:03, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

June 2009[edit]

Information.svg Please do not add content without citing verifiable and reliable sources, as you did to The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009 film). 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. Cirt (talk) 21:59, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please do not add unsourced or original content, as you did to Lakeview Terrace. Doing so violates Wikipedia's verifiability policy. If you continue to do so, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. — dαlus Contribs 00:34, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

RMS Titanic[edit]

Your edits to the RMS Titanic article do not match the numbers shown within the cited source for that data. If you have a change to the data, please provide a reliable source which backs up that change. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 22:49, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

August 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, please cite a reliable source for the content of your edit. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. Take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources for information about how to cite sources and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

June 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. One of the core policies of Wikipedia is that articles should always be written from a neutral point of view. A contribution you made to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 appears to carry a non-neutral point of view, and your edit may have been changed or reverted to correct the problem. Please remember to observe this. Thank you. Aaron Booth (talk) 22:00, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

August 2012[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at List of Presidents of the United States who died in office, you may be blocked from editing. Neelix (talk) 20:28, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited A Night to Remember (1958 film), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page British (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.

Generally mixed to negative[edit]

Hi, I reverted your edit at Hey Arnold!: The Movie here, but I thought I'd drop you a direct note to explain my rationale a little better than the edit summary. While used quite often on Wikipedia, the phrase "generally mixed" doesn't really mean anything. People use it to imply that critical reaction was mixed, but ALL critical reaction is mixed. Editors also misuse the phrase "mixed to negative" or "mixed to positive", which again doesn't mean anything. If the response was mixed, that implies both positive and negative. So what are we really trying to say by "mixed to positive"? More positive than negative? At least that says what we mean. Also, when we make these "generally mixed to" claims, we get into a weird area where we as editors are drawing conclusions that may not be explicitly stated in any of the sources. This constitutes WP:SYNTHESIS. WikiProject Film is formally against the use of these phrases. Anyhow, hope that explanation helps more than my edit summary. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:49, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to WGBH-TV 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:

Reverting of Edits[edit]

Just a note that if you encounter this particular person's reverting what has been contributed it is not unusual, even for the reason why he stated. There are a couple cantankerous and somewhat possessive about some articles and he is one that receives support for a few other contributors. You might want to include that trivia in M's article. Hope this is useful.

October 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did to The Brady Bunch, without verifying it by citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. -- Winkelvi 18:08, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm SummerPhD. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to The Iron Giant seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. SummerPhD (talk) 19:52, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

July 2015[edit]

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Lamb Chop's Play-Along. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. SummerPhDv2.0 05:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

August 2015[edit]

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) 13:55, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Editorializing about a film's reception[edit]

Hi. I wanted to explain why I reverted your edit to Jetsons: The Movie. The problem is that you added unsourced editorializing to the reception. We already have a review aggregator, Rotten Tomatoes, cited in that article. We don't need unsourced analysis of the film's reception or interpretation of Rotten Tomatoes' score. This would be original research and is forbidden by Wikipedia policy. What one person considers "negative reviews", another person considers "mixed reviews", and vice versa. This way, we just report the facts. If you can find a reliable source that explicitly says the film received negative reviews, you can certainly add that. Sometimes you can find such articles at Entertainment Weekly or Variety. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 08:10, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

June 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Compassionate727. I noticed that you made a change to an article, The Land Before Time: Journey of the Brave, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. –Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:20, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
