Notice Coming here to ask why I reverted your edit? Read this page first...
Welcome to my talk page! I am an administrator here on Wikipedia. That means I am here to help. It does not mean that I have any special status or something, it just means that I get to push a few extra buttons to help maintain this encyclopedia.

If you need help with something, feel free to ask. Click here to start a new topic.
If I have not made any edits in a while, (check) you may get a faster response by posting your request in a more centralized place.

You can email me from this link but in the interests of Wiki-transparency, please message me on this page unless there are pressing reasons to do otherwise. Comments which I find to be uncivil, full of vulgarities, flame baiting, or that are excessively rude may be deleted without response. If I choose not to answer, that's my right; don't keep putting it back. I'll just delete and get annoyed at you.

Doug_Weller The references there don't mention such information though also why is the information even included in there its not even realted to the topic in hand? bolanriver (talk) 9:11, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Was blocked unjustly, and via circular reasoningEdit

Hello! You blocked me. This I circular reasoning for the first delete by Yaniv was inappropriate. He called my post “garbage”. I have a right to appeal to the editors board and speak, and people have been siding with me, but you and others keep blocking me! For nothing I’ve done on the administrators page! This is not okay! You aren’t using logic or sources, but ridiculous rules that you use whenever you feel it meets your agenda! STOP! Thank you for your time!— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:05, 4 September 2018‎ (UTC) constant vandalismEdit

The Manuel da Silva Rosa pageEdit

Doug Weller, I have no understanding as why you keep undoing my edit on page. You requested the source and that who I provide is the University of Azores own website shows the Manuel da Silva Rosa is a PhD lists on the page under "DOUTORAMENTO EM HISTÓRIA INSULAR E ATLÂNTICA". I still confused what is unreliable source? Maybe just prejudice against? Or maybe your unfamiliar with Portuguese language to read the source page? and that NIEHS works not minor, you said minor, for 8 years works from Lockheed Martins awarded highest honors Lithning Award for NIEHS career. What is that needed for the wikipedia article to be made current? Reynatour (talk) 01:34, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

@Reynatour: the fact that he is studying simply isn't relevant to an encyclopedia. If he does get the qualification it should probably be listed then. We don't list awards unless they have their own article showing that they are notable awards. Do you have a source saying he worked for NIFHS for 8 years? You mentioned a contract. What was the period? Doug Weller talk 13:58, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Gatestone Institute - Amir TaheriEdit

Snooganssnoogans deleted Taheri's birth place (Iran) based on his personal opinion that this information is "unnecessary" and then you said the Amazon source is not reliable. They're both conflicting feedback. The information posted on Amazon is Taheri's profile that's printed in all of his 11 published books during the past 30 years by publishers who normally fact-checked authors background before printing their information in books. The information is correct and valid but if it's incorrect and Taheri was born elsewhere then the information can be modified with proper citation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peaceonearth20 (talkcontribs) 17:40, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

@Peaceonearth20: they aren't conflicting. I agree it doesn't belong in the Gatestone article - it's in his article and that's where people should look for his biographical details. I'm not convinced that publishers don't simply take an author's word for where he was born. I would always want something better. Doug Weller talk 18:16, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

2nd chanceEdit

Note that you removed an article copied to User talk:Shadowzpaev. While nobody appears to have extended the 2nd chance to that user, you may want to read Template:2nd chance which encourages limited copying of an article into a talk page. If the person follows the instructions, it shouldn't result in a copyright violation. The template isn't mine and I'm not saying you should revert your changes, just pointing out what the template says. --Yamla (talk) 13:48, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

@Yamla: they didn't follow the instructions at all. I have reverted and added a comment. Thanks for pointing this out. Doug Weller talk 14:06, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
