Hilton Daytona - External LinkEdit

HI i have added things to do page to Hilton daytona beach , I think that was useful for people searching for things to do near the beach. And i found the link useful

Let me know why it is considered wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Because Wikipedia is not a guide book and articles aren't meant to be travel tip sites. Articles are about the subject, not what is near the subject that tourists might find fun to go do. What you added violates our policy on WP:SPAM.Heiro 18:04, 14 April 2021 (UTC)\

Ok Thanks understood. Thanks for the guidance.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 1:55. 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Exact ramifications of 3RREdit

Hi Donald, I'd just like to know what exactly are the criteria for what constitutes the 3RR. I believe I have someone who may have broken the rule, but I am unsure if it infringes upon the rule. Thanks Ddum5347 (talk) 22:01, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@Ddum5347: The 3RR rule is stated at Wikipedia:Edit warring#The three-revert rule. If you observe edit-warring, and warning notices to the participants have not stopped the edit warring, you can report it at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring. - Donald Albury 00:18, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

The Signpost: 25 April 2021Edit


Hello. I know that the word "moors" is equivalent to Arab but the word "moor" was an insult and must be corrected as will it was called to flipino , sri lankas , indian and many of diffrent people the article should be more clear and wrote "arabs". The word "Nasrid" is the name of the kingdom, or at least "Emirate of Granada" should be written instead of the word small moor state Samlaxcs (talk) 21:17, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

Samlaxcs, please discuss this at the article talk page. - Donald Albury 21:45, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

After their latest shenanigan's, I took it to ANI. You are sort of mentioned, so weigh in if you wish   There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Heiro 06:46, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

@Heironymous Rowe: Well, that went fast. Thank you for doing that. I see that Epictrex has "retired". We shall see. - Donald Albury 12:45, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, went faster than I thought it would. Blanking the ANI twice didn't help them any. And re: retirement, in the short time they have been here they have retired several times. I'm more worried about the multiple IPs they have been using, I get the feeling we'll be playing whack-a-mole for awhile. If you look at the IPs here from May 5-May 8, those are all Epictrex. And most of those IPs were used to edit other pages, along with their named account. All of their IPs geolocate to Sparks, Nevada. They have been using IPs and their named account to edit a whole host of articles for at least a week, apparently. I'm not sure if it was nefarious, to avoid detection since so many editors were starting to scrutinize their edits, or they just didn't bother to log in 3/4ths of the time.

@Heironymous Rowe: Yeah, half the retirements I've seen over the years lasted less than a month. Considering the cluelessness involved, I don't doubt we'll be seeing more of his work. - Donald Albury 17:14, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
