June 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Coo coo pigeon. I wanted to let you know that I undid one or more of your recent contributions to I Look to You (song) because it did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks!

Rest of the edit summary[edit]

For some reason, my entire edit summary will not display, so I will just give the full edit summary for this edit here instead:
Reverted good faith edits by WhyHellWhy: Look, I completely understand why you are doing this, but there is currently a discussion on the linked page's talk page regarding language-mixing. Redo (but don't revert) if you are sure, and we can attempt to further discuss, although it would be preferable if we discuss first. (TW) Dustin (talk) 17:31, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

The page has been renamed and the discussion has been closed. --WhyHellWhy (talk) 17:53, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia process[edit]

You need to read WP:BRD before continuing to reinsert your POV edits about Crimea in various articles. The process, in a nutshell, is Step 1) Be bold and edit. Step 2) If another editor reverts your edit, then do not simply reinsert it. Step 3) Discuss and build a consensus. While you have started a discussion at Ukrainian language, you have not, in any sense of the word, built a WP:CONSENSUS for your change. Do not reinsert your controversial material until that consensus has been built. A consensus for "disputed" has already been built at Ukraine. Until you can build a consensus otherwise, then that is the consensus that holds for now. --Taivo (talk) 05:51, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. --Taivo (talk) 07:00, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Stop icon with clock
You have been blocked from editing for a period of ten days for edit warring and violating the three-revert rule, as you did at Russia. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}. However, you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.  Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 07:31, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Discretionary sanctions notification[edit]

Commons-emblem-notice.svg Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding Eastern Europe, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

This message is informational only and does not imply misconduct regarding your contributions to date.

Non-free rationale for File:Cissy and Whitney Houston I Know Him So Well.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Cissy and Whitney Houston I Know Him So Well.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 19:04, 20 March 2015 (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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:04, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
