May 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Ruhollah Khomeini do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it. Please take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia.  
Your edit here to Ruhollah Khomeini was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed ( is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 22:30, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Frontline (PBS) episodes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hacker (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.

Ice hockey at the 2014 Winter Olympics[edit]

In response to your comments on my talk page, I had not actually looked at the Ice Hockey at the <<previous>> Winter Olympics pages, and so didn't see this consistency. However, I had looked at other articles for the 2014 Winter Olympics, such as curling, which follows a similar tournament style to ice hockey, but does not include the infobox. Scrolling slightly further down the page, to the Medalists section, a clear table can be seen detailing the winners. However, this could be too detailed, with many names per team, and the infobox does appear to fit with previous ice hockey olympic articles, so I am happy for you to reintroduce the infobox, if you wish. If you've got any more comments on this, please reply on my talk page, or if it is more appropriate, on the Ice hockey talk page. 97rob (talk) 16:59, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

TrueCrypt revert[edit]

No need to be petulant. The date format was inconsistent with existing usage in the article, and there was no directive as to which format was preferred. My edit was no more "subjective" than the existing text, but was more accurate in describing what happened. — QuicksilverT @ 19:09, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry if you felt I was being petulant. I saw no other usage of the date format which you switched to, yet every other full date in the article used the format that you switched from. If you can point out any inconsistencies, that would definitely be helpful. As for subjectivity, the text already accurately described what happened. Given WP:SUBJECTIVE I saw no reason to reword it simply to include the word "abruptly". (How does a redirect begin not "abruptly" anyway?) If it's really that important to you, definitely feel free to bring it up on the talk page. --Wikisian (talk) 19:26, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia from the Anatomy Wikiproject![edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia from WikiProject Anatomy! We're a group of editors who strive to improve the quality of anatomy articles here on Wikipedia. One of our members has noticed that you are involved in editing anatomy articles; it's great to have a new interested editor on board. In your wiki-voyages, a few things that may be relevant to editing wikipedia articles are:

Sobo 1909 589.png
  • Thanks for coming aboard! We always appreciate a new editor. Feel free to leave us a message at any time on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page. If you are interested in joining the project yourself, there is a participant list where you can sign up. Please leave a message on the talk page if you have any problems, suggestions, would like review of an article, need suggestions for articles to edit, or would like some collaboration when editing!
  • You will make a big difference to the quality of information by adding reliable sources. Sourcing anatomy articles is essential and makes a big difference to the quality of articles. And, while you're at it, why not use a book to source information, which can source multiple articles at once!
  • We try and use a standard way of arranging the content in each article. That layout is here. These headings let us have a standard way of presenting the information in anatomical articles, indicate what information may have been forgotten, and save angst when trying to decide how to organise an article. That said, this might not suit every article. If in doubt, be bold!
  • We write for a general audience. Every reader should be able to understand anatomical articles, so when possible please write in a simple form—most readers do not understand anatomical jargon. See this essay for more details.

Feel free to contact us on the WikiProject Anatomy talk page if you have any problems, or wish to join us. I wish you all the best on your wiki-voyages! --Tom (LT) (talk) 09:14, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
