German train axe attackEdit

Your edit to the article relies too heavily on one soruce only, and one which is not held in general regard to be very factually correct as a tabloid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Egroeg5 (talkcontribs) 22:57, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 2015 Las Vegas car attackEdit

 

The article 2015 Las Vegas car attack has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Hardly notable enough for a stand-alone article

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Do you mind helping a fella' save his sanity?Edit

Well, I don't know if some of the editors noticed, but with the least arrogance, I updated most of the list of terrorist incidents since Setpbember 2015 and you may imagine what is it to be constipated with terror attacks and giving the fact editors including me have documented more then 50 terror attacks in 22 days (that's more then two per day), I kinda start to get sick of it. So I thought to my self, since you seem to have added some incidents, I should give you some of the tools I use to find terror attacks.

  • This website, is an indicator. It is not a source, but you can use it to find attacks and then search them in mainstream media.
  • This is kind of a dubious website, but it is also a good indicator, never use it a source, extremly biased.
  • This website is good for India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, it has information about Naxalite-Maoist insurgency in India and Taliban conflict in Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as Blochistan.
  • I also find Yahoo News a very good source since it collects reports from several news agencies altogather.
  • For Israel news, well, if you want, from time to time, to see if I am doing a terrible job, you can use this website as an incidcator or a source (I never used it as a source anyways) for Israel.

I really hope to see more editors working on the list since I am starting to loose it really.. Thanks anyway.--Bolter21 (talk to me) 20:49, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Kalamazoo shootingsEdit

I want to thank you, and by extension the other editors working on it, for creating a fair, balanced and most importantly, calm and non-sensational article on the above. As a former long time Kalamazoo resident, I'm too emotional about this to involve myself directly. The young lady in the side story about the couple that cancelled their ride is my ex-fiancee's daughter. Some of the other editors on the article will tell you that I am strongly opposed to articles on current crime stories here. There are several reasons, but the main two are:

  1. Sadly, mass casulty incidents have become so frequent that they have ceased to have historic impact except to those involved, or at least to those in the locale they occur.
  2. Inevitably they become a quagmire of rumors and POV.

Good editing practice has avoided the second here, thank you. And as far as historic impact, well I'm sure Uber's bottom line will see some impact for at least a couple quarters. John from Idegon (talk) 05:42, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

About repeatedly reverting ISIL-related articlesEdit

 Please read this notification carefully, it contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

A community decision has authorised the use of general sanctions for pages related to the Syrian Civil War and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, such as 2016 Brussels bombings, which you have recently edited. The details of these sanctions are described here. All pages that are broadly related to these topics are subject to a one revert per twenty-four hours restriction, as described here.

General sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimise disruption in controversial topic areas. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to these topics that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behaviour, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. An editor can only be sanctioned after he or she has been made aware that general sanctions are in effect. This notification is meant to inform you that sanctions are authorised in these topic areas, which you have been editing. It is only effective if it is logged here. Before continuing to edit pages in these topic areas, please familiarise yourself with the general sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

Edit war warningEdit

Join the discussion on Talk, or do not edit the article.

 

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Alternative for Germany ‎. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. 17:31, 10 May 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Euro 2016 riotsEdit

Hello Rossbawse,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Euro 2016 riots for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, 2016 Marseille riots.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

Your contributed article, Orlando massacreEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Orlando massacre. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. General Ization Talk 21:51, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

July 2016Edit

  Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. Thanks! 220 of Borg 16:40, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at 2016 shooting of Baton Rouge police officers, you may be blocked from editing. Obama was clearly not the perpetrator EvergreenFir (talk) 16:35, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

  Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page, as you did at 2016 shooting of Baton Rouge police officers. Content of this nature could be regarded as defamatory and is in violation of Wikipedia policy. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. This edit is unacceptable. Wikipedia is not for WP:ADVOCACY, especially at the expense of WP:BLP. FourViolas (talk) 16:36, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

QueryEdit

Ross, can you explain this edit? SarahSV (talk) 16:56, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

I came here yesterday to block you, assuming you were some drive-by vandal, but I discovered instead that you're an experienced editor, so I asked for an explanation. The only person you harm with an edit like that (which I see is not a one-off) is yourself, because it reduces people's trust in you. I hope you'll try to restore that trust from now on. SarahSV (talk) 16:58, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 23Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of terrorist incidents, 2005, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Caucasian Front. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Speedy deletion nomination of 2016 Ansbach bombingEdit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on 2016 Ansbach bombing requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. 186.6.37.112 (talk) 00:25, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Merger discussion for 2016 Ansbach bombingEdit

Nomination of 2016 Milwaukee riot for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article 2016 Milwaukee riot is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2016 Milwaukee riot until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 05:09, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

August 2016Edit

  Please do not remove Articles for deletion notices from articles or remove other people's comments in Articles for deletion pages, as you did with 2016 Milwaukee riot. Doing so won't stop the discussion from taking place. You are, however, welcome to comment about the proposed deletion on the appropriate page. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 04:29, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

  Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give 2016 Manhattan bombing a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into 2016 Manhattan explosion. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. epicgenius (talk) 23:54, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

December 2016Edit

  You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you add unsourced material to Wikipedia, as you did at Faithful Word Baptist Church. This edit was not properly sourced and you gave no indication in your edit summary where it came from. In a similar vein, This edit makes no sense. If you do not understand that "2 people missing" is not a type of non fatal injury, then you should consider whether editing on Wikipedia is for you. You have been warned several times before, and you seem uninterested in communicating with other editor about these concerns, so consider this a final warning that if you continue to make unconstructive edits; add unsourced material; or engage in antisemitic vandalism, I will seek for your account to be blocked. - MrX 21:46, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

I-65 Killer moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, I-65 Killer, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.
