Teahouse HostsEdit

Hi! Minecrafter0271, thank you for volunteering to be a host at the Teahouse. We really appreciate your willingness to help! However, we see that you are pretty new around here and have not edited very much in mainspace yet. It takes a lot of time, background knowledge and patience to answer new editors' questions effectively. So you should probably edit for a while longer before you sign up to be a host. That said, you're still very welcome to answer those questions that you can, and we hope you continue to participate and spread the word about the Teahouse to other new Wikipedians. Come back soon!


Thank you for your keenness to help others, though. Nick Moyes (talk) 00:19, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 8Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Comparison of project management software, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page AGPL (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 14:19, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

February 2020Edit

  Hello, I'm Magnolia677. An edit that you recently made to Mississippi River seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want to practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Please see Template:Infobox river for template details. Magnolia677 (talk) 21:57, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Arbitration Committee RfCEdit

Hi. I see that you have been posting endorsements on different sections of Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Arbitration Committee. I'm one of the arbitrators and I appreciate your interest in our work. However, that request for comment was posted in 2008 to discuss the Committee as it existed at that time, more than eleven years ago. It is no longer being read or updated and it is not useful for you to be editing that particular page now. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 06:34, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

@Newyorkbrad: Oops. I thought the ones on the top were the newer ones, or they would be archived or something. Sorry. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 16:34, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
On the top where? Let me know where you were looking and I'll see if that ought to be clarified. Thanks, Newyorkbrad (talk) 17:12, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
@Newyorkbrad: On the top of Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Arbitration Committee. Please get that sorted out. And, aren't discussions from 11 YEARS ago supposed to be closed and archived? It was still open! Please get that clarified, thanks. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 17:37, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

February 2020Edit

  Hello, I'm S. M. Nazmus Shakib. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/K. G. Marar have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you have any questions, you can ask for assistance at the help desk. The discussion is not finished yet. Even, it was relisted. Why dou you keep it? If you do it again, your activities will be complained. S. M. Nazmus Shakib (talk) 03:20, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

@S. M. Nazmus Shakib: I use the XFDCloser. I accidentally clicked "Quick Close." Unfortunately, there was no "confirm" message, it just got closed right away. I tried to undo it, but I couldn't find out how to. Thanks for the warning, though. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again. Also, you might want to change the tone. It is very harsh, and kind of intimidating. Just for future reference. Thanks. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 03:26, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
For future reference, if you appeal to WP:BITE, either implicitly or explicitly, it doesn't apply to you. TonyBallioni (talk) 03:31, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@TonyBallioni: What do you mean? Minecrafter0271 (talk) 03:35, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Slow downEdit

You're moving too fast. At the current rate, you're very likely to end up blocked for disruptive editing while trying to be very helpful. Yes, we block people who are trying to be helpful when they don't listen to the advice like Newyorkbrad is giving you less bluntly above and I'm giving you more bluntly here. Focus on content, then move on to maintenance tasks later. I unfortunately mainly deal with WP: space these days, but no one gets respect on this project for only dealing with behind the scenes stuff. We are here to build an encyclopedia and content comes first. Focus on that, and then eventually you can move to other areas. If you want to look at this as a "warning" you can, but it's really meant to help you, and not in a mean way. TonyBallioni (talk) 03:21, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

@TonyBallioni: Okay. You say that it's not a warning... RIGHT AFTER YOU THREATEN TO BAN ME! Sorry, but I'm getting kind of angry. I don't need a ban right now, actually, that's the LAST thing I need. I know you're trying to help, but this isn't the right way. I will focus on content though, so I don't get banned. Which, if I DID get banned, I would probably appeal unless the blocking admin provides a substantial amount of evidence. Other than that, I have nothing else to say. Bye. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 03:41, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
No, actually, I said it was a warning but to take it as my trying to let you know that you're on the path to a block so you can avoid it. If you want it more explicit, I can do that was well: stop getting involved in areas over your head where you have no clue how it works or you'll either be blocked by an individual admin or by a thread at ANI.
You're not the first user to act like this and you won't be the last. Those who take the advice to slow down tend to do well here. Those who don't tend to exit on the community's terms rather than your own. As for your question above: you're pretty clearly playing appealing to the principles in WP:BITE both here and in your response to the warning above, and doing it in a way to try to distract from the fact that people have pointed out legitimate issues with your approach (namely, you're doing things you have no clue how to do.)
If you know enough about Wikipedia to know that being kind to new users and helping them grow is one of our behavioural norms, you know enough about Wikipedia to not really be considered a newcomer and to know most of our other behavioural norms. (See this essay which I just wrote on the topic since it comes up frequently enough.) TonyBallioni (talk) 03:57, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Minecrafter0271, I actually came here to give similar advice. TonyBallioni didn't threaten to ban you - the point of what he's saying is that you're jumping into things too quickly and you're not really listening to experienced editors (I count at least four on this talk page) who are gently trying to tell you that you need to slow down. I get it, you're new and want to help out, but right now the problem is that you're not listening, and not listening + over-eager new editors often equals disruptive editing. Please just take some time to work in article space - write an article, improve an article, clean up vandalism, whatever suits your fancy - and just watch Wikipedia space so that you can learn what the norms and culture are. creffett (talk) 04:05, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

February 2020Edit

You have been blocked indefinitely from editing because it appears that you are not here to build an encyclopedia.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:14, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
 
This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Minecrafter0271 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


Request reason:

Okay. I understand what I did wrong. I tried diving into behind-the-scenes editing too soon. I understand everyone's frustration. I swear I will change. If I don't, I will leave Wikipedia forever. Just please give me a second chance. Thanks. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 04:18, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Decline reason:

You will have to show a much higher level of self-awareness and caution than you've displayed so far in your editing career. Your declaration immediately below that you're just misunderstood doesn't advance that cause. Everybody else here is a volunteer, and you're using up time and patience with a bull-in-a-china-shop approach to the encyclopedia project. Acroterion (talk) 04:44, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Minecrafter0271 (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


Request reason:

Per what I've stated below. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 04:50, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Decline reason:

This unblock request has been declined due to your history of vandalism and/or disruption to this encyclopedia. However, we are willing to give you another chance provided that you can earn back the trust of the Wikipedia community. To be unblocked you need to demonstrate that you are willing and able to contribute positively to Wikipedia. You can do this by:
  • Familiarizing yourself with our basic rules.
  • Read our guide to improving articles.
  • Pick any pre-existing article you wish to improve.
  • If you have trouble choosing an article to improve, see this index of articles needing improvement for ideas. Once you have decided on the article you will propose improvements to:
    1. Click the Edit tab at the top of that article;
    2. Copy the portion of the prose from that article that you will be proposing changes to. However:
      • do not copy the "infobox" from the start of the article (i.e., markup like this: {{infobox name|...}});
      • do not copy any image placement code (i.e., markup like this: [[File:Name.jpg|thumb|caption]]);
      • do not copy the page's categories from the bottom of the page (i.e., markup like this: [[Category:Name]]);
      • do not copy the stub tag (if there) from the bottom of the page (i.e., markup like this: {{Foo stub}});
    3. Click edit at your talk page, and paste at the bottom under a new section header (like this: == [[Article title]] ==) the copied content but do not save yet;
    4. Place your cursor in the edit summary box and paste there an edit summary in the following form which specifies the name of the article you copied from and links to it (this is required for mandatory copyright attribution): "Copied content from [[exact Name of Article]]; see that article's history for attribution."
    5. You can now save the page. However, if your edits will include citations to reliable sources (which they should), add the following template to the end of your prose: {{reflist-talk}}. Once you have added the template, click Publish changes.
  • Now, edit that content. Propose significant and well researched improvements by editing the selected portion of the article. Please note that we are not looking for basic typo corrections, or small unreferenced additions; your edits should be substantial, and reflect relevant policies.
  • When you are done with your work, re-request unblocking and an administrator will review your proposed edits.
    • If we (including the original blocking admin) are convinced that your proposed edits will improve Wikipedia as an encyclopedia, you will be unblocked.
If you need help while working with your proposed edits, you may add "{{Help me|your question here ~~~~}}" to your talk page. Thank you. Reaper Eternal (talk) 05:33, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

Your first edit after my warning above was to request a reliable source for a mathematical fact, while reviewing an edit request. I'll let someone else review this unblock since I just was warning you, but you look to be trolling us. TonyBallioni (talk) 04:22, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Second chances aren't given to people who are just here to troll the encyclopedia. In just over a month you have done nothing in the mainspace but add tags, propose deletions and a tad bit of vandal reverting. Everywhere else you are just purely trolling like the edit request you just declined, asked for a RS when it's a mathematical fact. Beyond that, you've trolled just about every other Wikipedia space available. I wouldn't be surprised if you were someone's sock given the knowledge you put in to your first edits. It just looks like your around to get by 500/30. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:23, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@TonyBallioni: @DeltaQuad: Okay. I AM NOT A TROLL! I am an editor. I'm not a sock. I'm not any of that. I'm not trying to troll anyone here. I'm not trying to get around 500/30. All of those allegations are false. I'm sorry if I made it seem that way, but I can promise, if I'm unblocked, that I will be a better contributor to Wikipedia. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 04:34, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Not addressing your disruptive behavior but claiming our assessment is all wrong is the perfect way to get unblocked. Have a good night. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:38, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@DeltaQuad: I said, in my review summary, that I know what I did wrong. I like to pounce into things to early. That's me. I know I have to change it, and I will. However, calling me a "troll" is completely false. I'm not saying "I'M INNOCENT!!!" Since you want me to address my behavior, I will do that. So, let's talk about the edit request. They provided a number with no citation. They just need to go to Google, find a source (there should be hundreds), come back, then make the request again. Now, about the AfDs and the tags. I admit, I was being a bit obsessive. I shouldn't do that. I'll be sure to cut it down if I'm unblocked. Also, I'll try doing some more mainspace edits. I think I've gone through all of it. Now, once again, I. Am. Not. A. Sock. I just wanted to clarify that. Please consider what I've stated above. Thanks. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 04:49, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Just my two cents, and I may be wrong, but I don't think a mathematical fact should need to be cited. You don't see 2+2=4 being cited anywhere, because everyone already knows it to be fact. Looked at your response to what should've been a routine, easy change. What? 1000 million is never correct. It is always 1 billion. Stuff like that does not need to be cited. It just is. If we needed to cite that, we'd end up having to change like 1000 million pages to cite how numbers work. LanHikari64 (talk) 05:17, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
You also probably shouldn't remove an active block message. Just saying. LanHikari64 (talk) 06:01, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@LanHikari64: I tried removing the retired template, and for some reason, it removed the block message. I don't know what happened. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 06:55, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Minecrafter0271, answer me this - do you think that 1000 million and 1 billion are not equal values? I'm wondering if there's some confusion about that going on. creffpublic a creffett franchise (talk to the boss) 15:41, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
@Creffett: Yes. However, for some reason I missed the "million" part. Probably because I was tired. If I had realized that, then I would have definitely done it. Also, don't mind the retired template. I just leave it there because the block notice above for some reason disappears when I try to remove the retired template. Cheers! Minecrafter0271 (talk) 18:38, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

Birkhoff's theorem (equational logic)Edit

In logic, Birkhoff's theorem states that an equality t = u is a semantic consequence of a set of equalities E, if and only if t = u can be proven from the set of equalities.[1]

According to Birkhoff's theorem, formal languages are considered to be models of natural languages. In mathematical logic, a person creates several classes of formal languages, to which first order logic and equational logic are of the highest importance. [2]

Equational languages are formal languages made up of countable variables, function symbols and an equality symbol. [3]

Equational logic can be combined with first order logic. Much of equational logic is derived from first order logic. [4]

The Encyclopedia of Mathematics is a Wiki and therefore is not a WP:RS. Can you please try to find secondary sources and try to answer the question: "Why do we care?" Take a look at Convex hull, Alexandrov's uniqueness theorem, or Kawasaki's theorem for an examples of what I am talking about.

  • Your offwiki comments that I was pointed to of "fuck Wikipedia" and "fuck DeltaQuad" are really not helping your case, but are just proving my original point. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 01:30, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
@DeltaQuad: Because I am fucking DONE with Wikipedia. I'm tired of you "big bad admins" bossing us newer users around. I don't do what you bullies tell me to do? "You have been blocked indefinitely from editing." What the fuck? By the way, I've never got anything higher than a Level 1 warning (which isn't even really a warning, it's just a general note). And then you call me a sock? Fuck you, and fuck Wikipedia. Block me from my talk page. I don't give any fucks. I used to be of the opinion that admins actually did something fucking useful on Wikipedia. But that has not been the case. They just bully and block. And DON'T use me as an example for what happens to people who don't obey your every command. Have a horrible life. Minecrafter0271 (talk) 05:26, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
