Please fix your signatureEdit

Your signature is currently producing several lines of wikitext (e.g. Special:Diff/914527744), which makes discussions harder to follow when looking at the wikitext. Please fix it so it comes out as a single line in the wikitext. If you need help, you can post what you have in your preferences and we can help you come up with a solution. Thanks.

2019 in American televisionEdit

Sorry, I was just trying to accept the pending edits my way. I should've waited until it was accepted by a admin or another user. --Keith Okamoto (talk) 01:53, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

October 2019Edit

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring, as you did at 2015 in American television. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.
During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.
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 ~~~~}}.  NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 16:12, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

@NinjaRobotPirate: Although this may do nothing to get me unblocked, I would like to say that Simmerdon, ever since this mess started, has played the victim card, tried to shift the blame onto me, and has repeatedly dismissed warnings, concerns about behavior, and policy citations as "unsourced claims" ([1], [2], [3]). I am concerned that Simmerdon's behavior may resume after his block expires, and that his behavior indicates there is no intention of ever changing.

So let the admins handle it, then. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 22:50, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Re:October 2019Edit

Heeeeeeyyyyy!!! You're wrong this time!! I did not do any vandalism and/or distruptive editing on Cartoon Network Studios! I removed those three links because that two titles, Adventure Time: Elements and Steven Universe: The Movie, have "already" been premiered an aired on TV. So, like a new series that premiered its first episode, they're announcement web links no longer needed. Luigi1090 (talk) 21:47, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

@Luigi1090: I still think it's uncalled for to remove sources, exacerbated by how you removed them without giving a valid reason for doing so in the edit summary. Unexplained content removal is frowned upon by the Wikipedia community, especially if it's reliable sources or if the content is properly sourced. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 19:51, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
Of course it's required to remove them, because those web links already also in their pages. Luigi1090 (talk) 22:03, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
@Luigi1090: Where in Wikipedia policy does it say this?
Also, can any admins confirm if this is true? NinjaRobotPirate? Bbb23? Anyone? The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 20:53, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
I have no idea what this is about. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 21:00, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
@NinjaRobotPirate: This is about Luigi1090's unexplained removal of sources from Cartoon Network Studios, which he tried to justify by saying 1) the sources were for the announcements and were no longer necessary since the TV movies/miniseries already premiered, and 2) the sources were in the linked pages. I would like to know if his actions are justified. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 21:09, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
Personally, I think content should be properly sourced on every page where it appears. You never know when someone is going to remove citations from the article, or the linked page could be deleted, etc. I guess you could skip adding a citation if it's obvious enough and supported on the linked page, but that's different from actively removing citations. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 21:37, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
@NinjaRobotPirate: No need to say "You never know when...", because those two linked pages will never be erasable: Adventure Time: Elements is in "good" article status (Steven Universe: The Movie not again but it will be shortly)Luigi1090 (talk) 18:32, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

October 2019Edit

Hi, I am BaldiBasicsFan. I just want you to know that the American release for 101DS was delayed to another date. See here:

1) source does not explicitly mention a delay. 2) source is likely self-published - self-published sources are largely discouraged. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 15:24, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

The Powerpuff Girls 2016 & Gumball Outdated Pages + Message About TV Show CancelationsEdit

It's Never Gonna Get Updates Last Time I Checked The Amazing World Of Gumball Had It's Final Episode Back In June Go See Proof On Google And As You May Know That The Powerpuff Girls 2016 Is Not Even Mention By Cartoon Network Since June 16 2019 Also Known As My 16th Birthday So Start Going Through The Internet To Find The Latest Info And Add Them To Wikipedia Also TV Shows Do Get Canceled Without Notice Because TV Shows Get Canceled Anytime The People Want To.

Infinity Train and Summer Camp IslandEdit

This is getting really tiresome. Stop reverting the pages back to outdated info. They are confirmed for HBO Max, they were at the presentation for Max Originals with the HBO Max logo on them. This isn't some speculation, it was by WarnerMedia themselves. See for yourself. Furthermore, the creator of Infinity Train himself said it's coming to Max after retweeting it. Again, see for yourself.

All you're doing is reverting the page back to an outdated version of it that does nothing but slow progress and inconvenience everyone. If you want this to stop, then stop.

Nights At Nyte (talk) 23:40, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Listen, I am only reverting because a number of editors (me, Drmies, Blue Pumpkin Pie, and Coasterdude1) have all objected to the inclusion of the information. Also, Twitter is not considered a reliable source unless the account is verified - please read Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Perennial sources#Twitter. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 23:43, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
@Nights At Nyte:The image is so small, its hard to see, using images for confirmations, in my opinion is poor method of verifying. All you need to do is find a credible source that can confirm it.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 23:56, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Nights At Nyte, try not to insult people, please. Speculation or not, it needs to be verified properly. It's really as simple as that. Drmies (talk) 01:47, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
  • How on EARTH is the official conference and the creator confirming it NOT OFFICIAL ENOUGH?! Nights At Nyte (talk) 02:18, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
    • @Nights At Nyte: A random blurry photo from a random twitter user is not credible. If what you said is true, there will be credible sources covering it and we can use those sources instead. You could always ask HBO Max on their official twitter if Infinity train (season 2) is coming to HBO max and that would be a better approach.Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 05:59, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

November 2019Edit

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.

@Sir Sputnik: Might I ask which edit war this is referring to? It's not immediately apparent to me what this is referring to. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 19:17, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

You had edit warred with other editors across a number of different pages (Infinity Train, Summer Camp Island, among others) to the point where these pages required full-protection. I had warned you in response to report at WP:ANEW#User:Nights_At_Nyte_reported_by_User:The_Grand_Delusion_(Result:_Page_protected,_Both_warned) that you would be blocked if this behaviour continued, yet your first edit to Infinity Train after the protection expired was to continue the edit war. Since you've clearly failed to heed warning, I have made good on it. You are expected to settle content disputes like this through discussion, not reversion. Sir Sputnik (talk) 19:33, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
My issue was that a number of editors had made objections to the content that was re-instated. The content was challenged. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 19:45, 4 November 2019 (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.

The Grand Delusion (block logactive blocksglobal blocksautoblockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))

Request reason:

I was reverting content that was re-instated despite the objections of a number of editors, which happened to include myself, Drmies, Blue Pumpkin Pie, and Coasterdude1. The concerns were that 1) Twitter, used as a source, is generally unreliable, and 2) the image used in the tweet is blurry and small. I will agree that a discussion on the article's talk page is necessary to reach a consensus, however. The Grand Delusion(Send a message) 04:08, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Decline reason:

Wikipedia's policy on edit warring is, basically, "don't edit war", not "don't edit war unless you are convinced that you are right". Indeed, it would be completely meaningless to have an edit warring policy which exempted any editor who was convinced that he or she was right, as in most edit wars everybody involved thinks they are right. The one thing about this block that might reasonably be subject to review is that, despite your history of edit-warring, being warned, and your previous block for edit-warring, the current block is for only 24 hours. JBW (talk) Formerly JamesBWatson 10:38, 5 November 2019 (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.

  • Sir Sputnik, I can't fault you for the block, but...yes there is a but: edit warring is never right, but this user's opponents are wronger. Look at this one, completely unexplained. I suspect they were blocked for this one, but it was less disruptive than this one. I see that JBW blocked them for it, and rightfully so. The Grand Delusion, a 24-hour block may seem harsh to you, but it's relatively short as a result of, I believe, these mitigating circumstances. If there is a lesson here, it's to stop edit warring in general; what you could have considered was given "vandalism" warnings for adding improperly sourced material, and then reporting violators. Maybe. Anyway, the 24 hours will be over soon. Drmies (talk) 15:45, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Hey, Its Edwordo13. So, the message you sent me, sorry about that. I wasn’t having a good day today. It won’t happen again. —Preceding undated comment added 02:13, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi The Grand Delusion, thank you very much for your contributions and the report at WP:AIV. Please keep the advice from the above section in mind when reverting changes, and seek discussion even if you are right. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 23:57, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
