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 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfrJ2rBobGs&feature=related) 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.

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)

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.

November 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 Dwayne Johnson. Thank you. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 22:21, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Re: Unwarranted reversion[edit]

Well, I'm glad you added sources, good for you.

As for edit warring, don't worry, I don't intent on going to any edit wars. I usually just revert someone once, and that's about it. If I disagree with something, I always go to the talk page and talk about it there. Oh and regarding my history. Yes, it is true that I went to many edit wars in 2007, but that was a long time ago and I assure you I'm nothing like I was back then right now. Blaze The Movie Fan (talk) 01:17, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Feedspot logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Feedspot logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Not a big deal, the article for which the image was uploaded for was deleted at AfD so there's no article using the image now. Elaenia (talk) 06:48, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

UFC 205[edit]

Hello. I supposed that you know how Wikipedia works, right? As I've seen lately, you have a tendency to try and keep articles 100% as they were after you made major edits. You can't accept changes and engages in back-and-forth reverts. Anyway, focusing on this event: only you show up adding rankings. Plenty of veteran MMA editors do not add them. They have no relevance to match-making or plenty of other functional stuff. They barely appear in medias just to "give some north" to casual fans. That being said, you have the right to propose such changes. BUT they must follow procedures, something you seem to avoid. WP:JDL fits exactly your behavior here. You "just don't like" the fact that we tell you to not add rankings and keeps getting them back. So gather a discussion (per the rules) so you can propose it. I can call the editors that have been on mma articles lately and we all discuss. I believe the outcome will be the same, but it's done by proper means and the discussion ends. Thanks. Gsfelipe94 (talk) 16:11, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Reply when talked to here instead of bringing that conversation over to an article talk page. This one belongs here and there is the place for you to work by the rules - something you haven't done. You now bring "harassment" to the table? Where is your part of gathering a discussion because you're the only one proposing changes? You will only accept your version and that's it. You're not the first to add rankings (unregistered users and other registered have done it in the past) and I'm not the first/only one to revert those edits in the last months. Yet, you're the first acting as a victim. Stop that, it's lame. I don't care who you are and what you edit anywhere. I'm simply reverting that based on what I said, not your username. If somebody else did it, I would do the same thing. So you have no solid points other than "they are offered by the ufc and are relevant info, let's add rankings and if you don't agree, let's add them anyway". I wonder why always an editor shows up out of the blue, engages in big arguments (like this one) and they never - NEVER - do their part of gathering a discussion for proposed changes. Even if they were right or just partially right, they never do it properly. And then they vanish like nothing happened. You're following the same steps. So please, stop the drama of pasting one-on-one conversation there and gather a discussion with proper arguments. Keep our conversation here as I won't fill a talk page with our specific discussion not-100% directly related to that issue. If anybody want to see it, this page is public anyway. Gsfelipe94 (talk) 21:04, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Gsfelipe94 again you're making false accusations. I am demonstrably not the only one "prospering" changes. And as I said before, it is demonstrably false that I will accept "only my version and that's it." And it's ironic that you would openly admit that I am not the only one to add rankings, as just a moment ago you claimed "only you show up adding rankings". So which is it? Those two statements are in direct contradiction. Further you claim I am acting as a victim. When a person continuously reverts edits that have absolutely nothing to do with the point in question (in this case rankings), and yet cites rankings as a reason for reverting every single edit by a particular editor (whether those edits had to do with rankings or not), yes, I don't see how that would not be considered harassment. You are directly targeting my specific edits (all of them, not just rankings), and reverting them with no reasoning (or pretending that you are only reverting rankings). Either you are being totally negligent and reckless in your editing, or you are engaging in classic harassment.
As far as "gathering a discussion on proposed changes", that is not how Wikipedia works. Anyone can edit pages for a reason. If there was a discussion needed for any change on an article, then only specific users would be able to edit articles (and the encyclopedia would virtually never go live.) Again, you type plenty of text, but nowhere have you offered a valid reasoning as to why such information should not be included. Everything you have offered is nothing more than assertions, accusations about me personally (which are demonstrably false), and now stories about other users. As I said before, the closest thing you have offered that might even resemble a reasoning for excluding such info is "it hasn't been included before" and/or "I just don't like it." Those are not reasons to exclude information from Wikipedia. One more time, either provide a valid reasoning, or stop deleting verifiable, and relevant information. And definitely stop reverting my edits that have nothing to do with rankings, as again, this is either negligent/reckless, or intentional harassment. --Wikisian (talk) 21:22, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
I said you're not the first to add them. You're the only one in this case right now. Pay proper attention to what is written. If it happened one year ago it still has nothing to do with the fact that you're the only one at the moment doing it, so there's no contraction there. Stop creating scenarios that don't exist, like your "harassment" card. I won't waste any other time here. As I mentioned previously, you're showing up out of nowhere, only caring about keeping your edits and not engaging in discussions about it. You're the first though to add the victim role to it, but it's ok. I'll do your job here and call some people for discussion. Btw, is that harassment as well? Should I be worried then? Gsfelipe94 (talk) 21:29, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Gsfelipe94 Even if you meant that I am the only one to do it here, that is also demonstrably false (again, anyone can view the history). So you can take your pick of which false statement you actually made. As for harassment, again, constantly reverting every edit someone makes on any article and then only citing an issue with one specific edit is either harassment or negligence and recklessness. Again, take your pick. As for calling other editors for a discussion on the matter, "harassment" would depend on how they behave. However, you would be advised to be careful there as well, as it would not seem out of the question for you to now engage in WP:CANVASS. I'm sure you'll contact editors who have added rankings in the past, and ask them to come weigh in on the matter as well, yes? --Wikisian (talk) 21:51, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
Then it's a matter of me not noticing/remembering that. Still, that does not mean I would waste my time coming here to harass someone that goes by "Wikisian" and I have no clue who that person is. And stop sitting on your chair and waiting for things to be done. You should help the discussion as I'm not the only one responsible here. I'm bringing editors that constantly update. I can't bring IPs here that have made one-and-done edits or users that I can't find in history of pages. I had arguments with several of those users in the past, so that can't be canvassing. I'm not responsible for their opinions and if they don't agree with you (or if they do) it's not my problem. Check their talk pages, I simply added a talkback to this page.
