I have sent you a note about a page you startedEdit

Hello, JackFromReedsburg

Thank you for creating Housing in the United States.

User:Doomsdayer520, while examining this page as a part of our page curation process, had the following comments:

Thank you for starting this new article, but it feels woefully incomplete. It is a large topic but only has one brief paragraph on how to build a house, then some stats about homelessness. To be honest, the point of this article is tough to pin down.

To reply, leave a comment here and begin it with {{Re|Doomsdayer520}}. Please remember to sign your reply with ~~~~ .

We will begin the event with the debut of a new video celebrating our community. This will be followed by a panel discussion with some of the people you'll see in the video talking about Wikipedia's 20th anniversary, Wikimedia New York City, and the amazing work they do on Wikimedia projects.

The event will be broadcast live via YouTube. Feel free to ask questions for the panel through the chat!

We will also have some NYC wiki trivia you can participate in, with confectionery prizes.

GA review of Nuclear powerEdit

Hello, just checking if you are still planning to review Nuclear power. It has been over a week since you started the review page, but haven't heard anything since then. If you are not planning to review the article soon, please notify this at WT:GAN so that another user can review it. Thank you! --Ita140188 (talk) 09:08, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

@Ita140188: my bad, I've been busy this past week and haven't had the time for a review. I'll see if I can do it later today, otherwise I will let someone else do it. JackFromReedsburg (talk | contribs) 11:39, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Response to the withdrawal of the edition of the article "Wikipedia: Link rot"Edit

Dear Mr. JackFromReedsburg,

Thanks for your welcome to Wikipedia.

I am writing in connection with reject my edition of article 'Wikipedia:Link rot'.

I wonder what better archive sites are there than Internet Archive, which:

  • you can search by typing the url of the page you want to browse free, also at home,
  • accept multiple archiving requests of any web pages for free,
  • ensure the long availability of their resources:
  • theoretically, because that's their mission,
  • practically because:
  • they are not a commercial entity, but have (fairly) reliable (and different) sources of funding,
  • if they are a commercial entity, they plan to donate the files to someone who will keep them for a long time.

If you know such archives, I would be grateful if you could write them all for me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

--Failure9x (talk) 14:39, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Hello @Failure9x:, while I do agree that the Internet Archive is a very good archive, it is not the only one. A list is available here: Wikipedia:List of web archives on Wikipedia. Now for your edit, the bullet point right above that lists the major web archiving sites, so I find it redundant to list them again. --JackFromReedsburg (talk | contribs) 14:54, 17 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the free kittens, but I am not happy that they urinated on my talk page. Could you please clean it up? Thanks, JackFromWisconsin (talk | contribs) 01:20, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Corona (beer)Edit

  It might not have been your intention, but you recently removed maintenance templates from Corona (beer). When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Please see Help:Maintenance template removal for further information on when maintenance templates should or should not be removed. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Thank you. — Smjg (talk) 21:27, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

my bad, while I was removing the overly crufty material, I must have accidently deleted the template. thanks for putting it back JackFromWisconsin (talk | contribs) 03:10, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

May 2021Edit

Your recent editing history at May 10 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Toddst1 (talk) 15:55, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

@Toddst1: my bad, i was working in the pending changes backlog and wasn't fully aware of your WikiProject's standards (regarding section subheadings). I won't revert again, and apologize for making the mistake. Have a good day and happy editing. JackFromWisconsin (talk | contribs) 20:02, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
