Just GuessingEdit

I"m guessing this sort of thing: Dick (slang) is why wiki has a large reputation for not being able to retain editors. WhoAmIYouDoNotKnow (talk) 17:40, 29 May 2022 (UTC)

I wouldn't know. But there is already an article for Dick (slang) so there is no value in an additional blue link for the entry. olderwiser 20:01, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
So? WhoAmIYouDoNotKnow (talk) 23:54, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
So stop adding an irrelevant link to the disambiguation page. olderwiser 01:00, 30 May 2022 (UTC)
It's not irrelevant. You need to stop acting like a sole arbiter. WhoAmIYouDoNotKnow (talk) 13:46, 5 June 2022 (UTC)
So you seriously think someone coming to the disambiguation page for "dick" might actually be looking for dysphemism. Sorry , but that is not only against WP:MOSDAB but also rather ridiculous. olderwiser 15:41, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

Not following instructions after warningEdit

I warned User: Elly Mar Banay Cuenca to refrain from putting a year on the series article that says upcoming or released series like what he just did with The Broken Marriage Vow. I warned him in his talk page and he should follow the guidelines. He still does the same thing after I warned him. Is there a way that we can block him for his disruptive edits? Thanks.

If the edits are disruptive (as in being incorrect or not accurate) then you might try the incidents noticeboard. If it is matter of coaching an inexperienced editor, you might find editors willing to help at the teahouse. olderwiser 13:28, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Maga pageEdit

Why do you keep undoing my edits and calling them disruptive? I would think in the spirt of open and free communication you would at least reach out or ask a third party. Please reference a policy it may be breaking and not one persons opinion of what may or may not be deemed helpful. I found this information circulating on social media, and I’m merely presenting a possible definition others may find helpful.

  • (talk page watcher) @Smader12: The excessive detail on the lead of the dab page is covered by WP:DABNOT; as for the alternative definition, if you have reliable sources about it you could start an article on it or mention it within the article on the more common definition, and then link to that from the dab page. But a dab page is not the place for unlinked content. Bkonrad is familiar enough with Wikipedia policy to not need to consult any third party on these two very clear points.

Thank you for reply, it would have been much easier if new users were treated a little better in this environment. I’m asked donate here all the time, and when I finally make an edit, it feels like the entire site is controlled by a few people who feel they control they information—at least without any courteous comment or reply. What I had read prior to this was a link was encouraged but optional (my words based on my recollection). I will take your advice. Best regards. Smader12 (talk) 11:08, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

  • (talk page watcher) @Iupohfxbgiosvk5hyen: Sorry, but I have reverted your edit as it did not improve the encyclopedia - you added a misspelled and unsourced sentence and removed valid categories from the existing redirect. Welcome to Wikipedia, but please take more care with your edits and remember that everything you add must have references to reliable independent published sources which support what you type. Thanks. PamD 17:51, 14 July 2022 (UTC)
