February 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to the page Category:Shepherd University alumni. Blank pages are malicious to Wikipedia as they often confuse readers. If it is a duplicate article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate revision. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please use the deletion process for how to proceed. Geoff Who, me? 02:02, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Regarding your proposed deletion of Category:Shepherd University alumni[edit]

Hello, I have removed your proposed deletion from Category:Shepherd University alumni, as prod tagging may only be used on articles. As this page lives within the Category namespace, the correct location to nominate it for deletion would be at WP:CFD. Hope this helps, feel free to contact me if you have any questions. --Taelus (talk) 09:46, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

March 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not delete content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Anarcho-pacifism, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.--Edward130603 (talk) 21:01, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

July 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Andrés Nin, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.

Information.svg Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Victor Serge, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you. Please leave an edit summary - especially when removing content. Technopat (talk) 14:12, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

August 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to the page Template:Age of Enlightenment. Blank pages can confuse readers, and are overall not helpful to the Wikipedia project; furthermore, blanking a page is not the same as deleting it.

If the article you blanked is a duplicate of another article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate revision. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please use the appropriate deletion process.

Norman Spinrad[edit]

Please note that political or religious alignments cannot be added as categories to the article unless there is cited text in the article supporting the subject's self-identification as such. Thanks. Yworo (talk) 02:56, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Charles Baudelaire has been reverted, as it appears to have removed content from the page without explanation. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, please ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you. Donald Duck (talk) 02:57, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Deletions[edit]

Hi, Woland1234. You deleted the relevant categories and assertions from the articles:

  1. deleted Category:Phenomenologists from the article about the director of the Institute of Phenomenological Studies;
  2. deleted Category:Libertarian socialist organisations from the article Zapatista Army of National Liberation;
  3. deleted the assertion that Frantz Fanon was considered an important existentialist; this assertion was confirmed by source;
  4. deleted Category:Existentialists from the article Frantz Fanon.

Could you explain reasons why you did it? Psychiatrick (talk) 00:10, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes, not sure about these deletions and many others that you make. Please add an edit summary to your edits Woland1234 Christian Roess (talk) 09:17, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Funny how I came here for the same thing, only to note two other people already at it! Indeed, I discovered the same peculiarity and began restoring his deletions of categories. I meant to come and leave a friendly explanation of my actions... but it seems Woland is not responding to the existing, open query. Let us hope he is more forthcoming now, with three agitators on his doorstop. —Zujine|talk 04:51, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Please respond before further action is taken.[edit]

User:Woland1234:

  • Please respond to this message. It will demonstrate a willingness to act in good faith. If you continue to make edits on Wikipedia without explanation or rationale, then I will need to take this to arbitration. Here's one of my concerns: from looking at your past History of Contributions:
  • you have never left a message on a Talk page; and
  • you have never left an edit summary.

If you continue with these actions, making indiscrimate edits and deletions on Wikpedia pages, and that would include not responding to messages on your talk page, let me say now:

  • out of courtesy to you, and in the spirit of good faith here on Wikipedia, I am informing you that I have assembled a dossier (sort of) on your potentially harmful deletions and edits of Wikipedia articles.
  • If this continues, I will bring your actions up for discussion on the Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.
  • Finally, as you will note in the section above this, "Deletions", others have also addressed in detail some of the things which are of concern. I am not the only concerned party here. If I can be of assistance, or help to clarify any of this for you, or give you a helping hand, with the attendant good will and hope that you may conduct more honorable work in your editing strategies (I say this with no condescension meant, implied, or directed toward you) let me know. Christian Roess (talk) 16:35, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Deletions and edits made by Woland1234 in articles seem indiscriminate and have no edit summaries or explanations on the talk pages of the articles. Therefore, I agree with what Christian Roess noted and suggested. Psychiatrick (talk) 18:50, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry guys, I disagree! I think it's too funny and unusual to really want to put my foot down on it. As Roess points out, this is obviously a man in the grips of a kind of mania... I'm getting my popcorn out and watching how the story unfolds~! —Zujine|talk 23:48, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

February 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Hannah Arendt. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. RashersTierney (talk) 21:59, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Please do not remove content or templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Post-Marxism, without giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your content removal does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Please make use of the sandbox if you'd like to experiment with test edits. Thank you.

March 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Wikipedia. When removing content, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page. If this was a mistake, don't worry; the content has been restored, as you can see from the page history. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you.

Bohemianism in List of subcultures[edit]

A search in google books gives lots of sources saying that there is a bohemian subculture, and that it has spawned or inspired other subcultures. --Enric Naval (talk) 09:14, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

File copyright problem with File:JoeyTravolta.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:JoeyTravolta.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright and licensing status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can verify that it has an acceptable license status and a verifiable source. Please add this information by editing the image description page. You may refer to the image use policy to learn what files you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. The page on copyright tags may help you to find the correct tag to use for your file. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please also check any other files you may have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:55, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

San Francisco Renaissance - The Beats[edit]

I ran across your dispute with an ip over this section of San Francisco Renaissance. I've restored it, not seeing any secondary sources cited to outweigh the others. Could you comment at Talk:San_Francisco_Renaissance#The_Beats? --Ronz (talk) 17:55, 20 March 2012 (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.
