Teahouse logo
Hello! Wikiman103, you are invited to join other new editors at the Wikipedia Teahouse! The Teahouse is a friendly space on wiki where you can ask questions about editing and receive support & help from experienced editors. I hope to see you there! Sarah (talk) 23:29, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also 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 useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when they said it. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 16:45, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

Character actor[edit]

Please don't add "character actor" to the lead of articles, as whether someone is a character actor is usually a subjective judgment. Thanks. Trivialist (talk) 15:38, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

Please don't assume character acting is subjective. In acting, film and theatre, a "character actor" is one who is not a "leading man" or love interest type – such as Christopher Lee, Alex Rocco, Aubrey Morris. It is more a position according to roles, mostly secondary roles suited to someone unusual,[1] in contrast to the lead who represents an "ideal" or hero. A character actor is often clear about that classification in their resumé. It's not an insult, nor is it so subjective; and a pity to delete a fact on a false, even subjective, idea. Manytexts (talk) 22:59, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

January 2014[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. I notice you've had a previous message for this, so please head it. :) Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 18:45, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Will Ferrell[edit]

Hi, I'm the editor who is currently in disagreement with you over the inclusion of Will Ferrell's nationality on his article. I reverted your edit again, but I shouldn't have without discussing with you first, and I apologize. I would greatly appreciate it if you read through the parameters section of the Infobox person template, specifically through the nationality section. The description for using nationality clearly reads:

In this case, Ferrell was born in the United States, and therefore his nationality as an American can be clearly inferred. If he was Canadian, or German, or Czech, or Icelandic, we would include it here. For instance, Bruce Willis's page includes his nationality because he was born in West Germany, but is American. However, this doesn't apply in Ferrell's case. Corvoe (speak to me) 00:04, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Infobox cleanup[edit]

Hello, we have a major clean-up of the video game infobox due to start. In order to make it go smoothly we're having to edit occurrences of the template on user's sandboxes. So this is just a note to let you know that I've had to remove a couple of old none working fields from the template that you had on your sandbox. Hope that's OK. - X201 (talk) 13:39, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Irish American, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chris Evans (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.

Spencer Adams[edit]

Yes![edit]

Yes, I didn't mean you. But some editors are so picky about "jots" they don't bother to check the facts themselves. There are a number of jerks around. Be encouraged, Manytexts (talk) 06:19, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Gerry Rosenthal[edit]

Hello, Wikiman103. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Gerry Rosenthal, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Gerry Rosenthal to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

If you don't understand this message, you can leave a note on my talk page.

October 2015[edit]

Information icon Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living (or recently deceased) persons, as you did to Max Thieriot. See WP:BLPCAT and ensure all bio categories are well-referenced Geraldo Perez (talk) 15:57, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

November 2015[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

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) 16:55, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Hi there, re: this when prompted to discuss, not discussing is rarely the community-friendly option. I don't have an opinion on it beyond what I've posted on the talk page, but another editor did, and so the status quo should remain until the matter is resolved. It's nothing personal, but please discuss. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:14, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:08, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Disruption[edit]

You've got several "final warning" messages on your talk page, yet you've just blanked reliably sourced content from an article and changed the release date. You also blanked content from Ghostbusters (2016 film) last week. If I see any more disruptive edits from you, I'm going to block you. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 01:38, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

You are on really thin ice here. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 01:43, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
I found a few more articles where you blanked reliable sources. Bizarrely, you also cited the European Audiovisual Observatory in some articles as a source when you changed the countries – a source that you called unreliable when you blanked it in other articles. I would advise you to simply stop editing the countries in film articles altogether until you can understand how reliable sourcing works on Wikipedia. By this point, there really isn't much hope that I can argue that I'm uninvolved, but I will raise this issue at WP:ANI if I see you blank any more reliable sources. In short: take it to WP:RSN if you think a source is unreliable, because your track record is terrible at identifying them. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 02:27, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Christopher Kromer[edit]

Hi, I'm CaroleHenson. Wikiman103, thanks for creating Christopher Kromer!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. It would be better to use sources from newspapers, magazines, books and other reliable sources that are independent of Kromer. See Find sources: "Christopher Kromer" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Trump[edit]

Hi Wikiman103, thanks for your recent interest in the Trump article. FYI, I don't think the category you added should remain there. According to WP:SUBCAT, "a page or category should rarely be placed in both a category and a subcategory or parent category (supercategory) of that category". What do you think? That guideline also says, "an article should be categorised as low down in the category hierarchy as possible."Anythingyouwant (talk) 17:56, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Sue Jean Kim[edit]

Hello, Wikiman103,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Sue Jean Kim should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sue Jean Kim .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

Speedy deletion nomination of Evan Weinstein[edit]

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 Evan Weinstein 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 credibly 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 20:01, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of Lori Funk for deletion[edit]

This is a courtesy message to notify you that the article Lori Funk is being considered for deletion. All editors, including you, are welcome to discuss this at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lori Funk until a consensus is reached. The nomination and discussion are expected to focus on the quality of evidence and the policies and guidelines which are of concern. Please be aware that there are a number of arguments to avoid in a deletion discussion.

Users are encouraged to edit the article during the discussion, particularly in ways that address the concerns raised in that discussion. However, please do not attempt to remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article— doing so may be considered an act of bad faith and will not halt the deletion process. Thank you!

Sunny Suljic[edit]

Hello. I noticed that you changed this redirect into an article about an actor by this name. Although creating articles is appreciated, as is your editing, this does not appear to be a notable person or notable actor. Brief mentions and spare physical details in the sources you provided are not enough to demonstrate notability. I also did some checking and cannot find any independent reliable sources that discuss this person in depth. I am thinking this is a case of WP:TOOSOON. This person may yet become notable, but presently this is not the case. I request that you change the page back to a redirect. When this person has garnered enough notice, then go ahead a recreate the page. Thanks. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 00:48, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Elena Franklin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Elena Franklin has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable actor lacking in-depth, non-trivial support.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. reddogsix (talk) 23:48, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of Elena Franklin for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Elena Franklin is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Elena Franklin until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 23:17, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
