October 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. However, I noticed that your username (YahwehSaves) may not meet Wikipedia's username policy because it appears to state as fact a hotly-contested opinion. If you believe that your username does not violate our policy, please leave a note here explaining why. As an alternative, you may ask for a change of username, or you may simply create a new account to use for editing. Thank you.   — Jeff G. ツ (talk) 02:55, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

I think his username is perfectly acceptable. JORGENEV 06:27, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I agree. There are many users with the name Yahweh, God, Buddah, Jesus, Allah, Satan, et cetera. This username does not mislead, promote, offend, or disrupt Wikipedia. Granted, the purpose of Wikipedia is to provide an objective encyclopedia, their allowance of free-will and liberty only promotes a username indicating one's higher-power and other discussable usernames (Christ, Savior, Lucifer, Demon, Devil, Pastafarian {Flying Spaghetti Monsterism}, alcohol, marijuana, motorcycle). In my opinion, this username is in accordance with Wikipedia's username policy. Bullmoosebell (talk) 00:24, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
I also expressed my doubt to the accusing editor, who inexplicably responded that it is "disruptive and promotional". But not to worry, this incident has been reviewed by an administrator and shown to be innocent. Elizium23 (talk) 00:31, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Hello User:YahwehSaves, I received your message recently. If you do believe that you are being hounded, you could bring up the situation to the administrator's noticeboard. However, perhaps the user who is reverting you, honestly finds some of your edits to be problematic; I would recommend discussing the situation with that user first before going to the noticeboard. I hope this helps. With regards, AnupamTalk 05:50, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

Information icon Hi there!

When editing an article on Wikipedia, there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

I noticed your recent edit to Manuel J. Fernandez‎ does not have an edit summary. Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! Chris Troutman (talk) 16:21, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Half Million Award[edit]

Million award logo.svg The Half Million Award
For your contributions to bring Medal of Honor (estimated annual readership: 814,448) to Good Article status, I hereby present you the Half Million Award. Congratulations, and thanks for all you do for Wikipedia's readers! -- Bobnorwal (talk) 13:01, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
After looking at the revision history for the Medal of Honor article, I've decided — in my infinite wisdom — that you deserve this award for your contributions to that article. Thanks a million! (har har) Bobnorwal (talk) 13:01, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Fergie Jenkins / Mantle[edit]

In an effort to avoid an edit war, I'm hoping to talk with you about the lead format on Jenkins's page, specifically the opening line. As I'm sure you've seen, the majority of active and former player pages use the format "(Name) (birth date) is a/an (nationality) professional baseball (position) for the (team) of Major League Baseball". Variations of this format are also the standard for hockey, basketball, and American football player pages. A person doesn't play MLB, they play pro ball for MLB, and it's an important distinction. Major League Baseball is the league, not the sport, and thus should not come first in the lead, or in place of professional baseball. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 00:56, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

How about this: Andrew McCutchen is an American professional baseball outfielder for Major League Baseball's (MLB) Pittsburgh Pirates.
vs Andrew McCutchen is an American professional baseball center fielder for the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball (MLB). This just don't flow or sound right to me (of MLB). YahwehSaves (talk) 06:24, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Bill Genaust[edit]

I notice that you have been adding a lot of information to this page, yet you have not updated the cites and references which only cite the book "Shadow of Suribachi." Trouble is, this new information you've added is not in that book(I wrote the original version of the article and used that book). Please add refs and cites for this new info. Thanks. Sir Rhosis (talk) 07:30, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

I added the Smithsonian 2008 documentary "Shooting Iwo Jima" (Genaust biography and his films on Iwo Jima) documentary reference. Hope its not any trouble.YahwehSaves (talk) 06:47, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
