Geological Formation article imagesEdit

Please stop making changes to these articles without discussion. Actual photographs of fossils are generally preferred over life illustrations by Wikiproject:Dinosaurs. This is especially true for rock formations where it is more helpful to see what the fossils found in the rocks look like, their state of preservation, etc. than an artist's interpretation. Also, adding images for every fossil listed is not good practice because it breaks the table in many browsers making the page difficult to navigate. MMartyniuk (talk) 23:23, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Again, please stop doing this. I'm adding a warning template next time. MMartyniuk (talk) 16:41, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

MassospondylusEdit

Hello, Wesley J M;

Why are you removing the image of Massospondylus from List of African dinosaurs? It is most definitely an African dinosaur, and it's not an inaccurate restoration. J. Spencer (talk) 21:18, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Response to MassospondylusEdit

I'll tell you why J. Spencer, I am removing it because it was taking up a little to much space. Wesley J M 6:46, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I can't do anything about the height of the image, given the pose of the animal, but the column of pictures itself is shorter now without Barosaurus (exclusively North American, African species in Tornieria). J. Spencer (talk) 23:07, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Wesley, this is ironic considering that you continue to add as many images as possible to tables of limited height in articles like you just did again to Paleobiota of the Yixian Formation. It is not necessary to illustrate every taxon by breaking the tables. MMartyniuk (talk) 01:14, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

HomosexualityEdit

Don't do this again. You should know better what to add to articles. And for certain, what not to add. --Moni3 (talk) 21:51, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Response to HomosexualityEdit

You Better not be thinking opinion-wise Moni3.

What? Don't people usually think in opinions? Aren't opinions made up of thoughts? Is there a clearer way you should phrase what you're trying to express? --Moni3 (talk) 21:56, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

That is true, but I focus mainly on facts.

Except when you insert your own opinion into articles, as in what you did to Homosexuality? It's ok to be honest about it. --Moni3 (talk) 14:52, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I have a question...or a fewEdit

Your talk page is on my watchlist because I sent you a message, so:

  1. Do you capture pedophiles, or pedofiles? If the latter, is that an organizational system for this guy?
  2. It is unclear in your user page statement if you capture homosexual men, women, and pedo(f)iles, or homosexual men, homosexual women, and pedo(f)iles, or if the folks you capture are simply people who "com(m)it beastiality and incest", regardless of sexual orientation. That is confusing and Wikipedia in general should know of your doings, particularly if you are enough to post them on your user page.
  3. What is the goal of the brainwashing? I'm just terribly compelled to ask if spelling and grammar is a part of this treatment or if that is complimentary.
  4. How does the brainwashing take place? What methods do you use? Nonstop airings of Left Behind or Fireproof? Similar to the way Manuel Noriega was prised from his palace in Panama, do you blast dc Talk at the subject for weeks at a time? Or is this more hands-on kind of brainwashing, the kind that Jeffrey Dahmer attempted?

I appreciate your offer to field questions and eagerly await your responses. --Moni3 (talk) 21:08, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Response to: Yes, I have a question...or a fewEdit

  1. When I mean "pedofile/pedophile (same thing)" I mean people who try to do child sexual abuse. You know, far apart ages, like a 50-year old guy or gal with a 12-year old guy or gal (I know, ew).
  2. This society/academy thing dosn't actually exist, but I wish it did, i'm a baptist.
  3. We brainwash these UL (unnatural love) people to turn them naturally normal.
  4. We use a brainwashing machine. All you do is put the person in the machine, put a sample of DNA from someone of the oppisite gender of the one to be brainwashed in a little test tube thing on the side of the machine, presh the activate button, there is like electric-like zap type thing happening inside the machine to the person, they finally come out "reborn" with NL (natural love) and go out with that person we got the DNA from.

Edit summariesEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary for your edits. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page.

Disruptive Editing WarningEdit

  Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive; until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. MMartyniuk (talk) 14:58, 29 May 2011 (UTC)


Ok, i'll do better at what you're telling me to do MMartyniuk.

Wesley, do you understand why what you're doing is always being reverted? You cannot add an infinite number of images to the tables in articles about rock formations. Adding too many will break the table: that means, the row of images will become much longer than the actual information, which conflicts with the way the table format works. I and others have tried to explain this to you but you keep doing it anyway. The next time you add a lot of unnecessary images to a formation article, I will begin adding vandalism templates to your page and you may eventually be banned from Wikipedia. Again, please stop adding so many images that the tables break. MMartyniuk (talk) 12:58, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Okay, i just wanted to entertain myself with clear-to-see images but the table things are a little tricky to deal with i know. So I'll keep it low on the editing for a while. I promise I'll be good MMartyniuk.

And yet you've just done it again at Vertebrate fauna of the Maastrichtian stage. wikipedia is not for your personal entertainment. Marking as vandalism. MMartyniuk (talk) 13:05, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

  Please stop your disruptive editing. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in you being blocked from editing.MMartyniuk (talk) 12:51, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia and copyrightEdit

  Hello Wesley J M, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your addition to List of creatures from The Spiderwick Chronicle has had to be removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. While we appreciate your contributing to Wikipedia, there are certain things you must keep in mind about using information from your sources to avoid copyright or plagiarism issues here.

  • You can only copy/translate a small amount of a source, and you must mark what you take as a direct quotation with double quotation marks (") and a cited source. You can read about this at Wikipedia:Non-free content in the sections on "text". See also Help:Referencing for beginners, for how to cite sources here.
  • Aside from limited quotation, you must put all information in your own words and structure, in proper paraphrase. Following the source's words too closely can create copyright problems, so it is not permitted here; see Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. (There is a college-level introduction to paraphrase, with examples, hosted by the Online Writing Lab of Purdue.) Even when using your own words, you are still, however, asked to cite your sources to verify information and to demonstrate that the content is not original research.
  • Our primary policy on using copyrighted content is Wikipedia:Copyrights. You may also want to review Wikipedia:Copy-paste.
  • If you own the copyright to the source you want to copy or are a designated agent, you may be able to license that text so that we can publish it here. However, there are steps that must be taken to verify that license before you do. See Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
  • In very rare cases (that is, for sources that are public domain or compatibly licensed), it may be possible to include greater portions of a source text. However, please seek help at the help desk before adding such content to the article. 99.9% of sources may not be added in this way, so it is necessary to seek confirmation first. If you do confirm that a source is public domain or compatibly licensed, you will still need to provide full attribution; see Wikipedia:Plagiarism for the steps you need to follow.
  • Also note that Wikipedia articles may not be copied without attribution. If you want to copy from another Wikipedia project or article, you can, but please follow the steps in Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

It's very important that contributors understand and follow these practices, as policy requires that people who persistently do not must be blocked from editing.

Orkoraptor is a MegaraptoranEdit

Two independent studies, one by Benson, Carrano, & Brusatte and the other by Porfiri et al. have explicitly found Orkoraptor to be a Megaraptoran. Benson, Carrano, & Brusatte found Megaraptorans to be Allosauroids, yet Porfiri et al. found them to be Tyrannosauroids. It is more certainly a Megaraptoran than it is an Allosauroid.

And please stop reverting the addition of the citation I added to Porfiri et al. 2014. This is removing useful information.

Shuvuuia (talk) 15:51, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Repsponse to Orkoraptor is a MegaraptoranEdit

But Shuvuuia the link you keep posting does not talk about Orkoraptor, it talks about Megaraptor, not Megaraptorans.

I have access to the full paper by Porfiri et al. 2014, not just the abstract on that link, and it not only discusses the new juvenile Megaraptor remains, but also the classification of Megaraptorans. It contains a phylogenetic analysis containing data from the new remains, and the analysis clearly places Megaraptorans as Tyrannosauroids. Said analysis also contains Orkoraptor and places it right in the middle of Megaraptora. Here's a screenshot of it (Proceratosauridae is largely cropped out, Tyrannosauridae is abbreviated as Tyradae.) Shuvuuia (talk) 05:39, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Then tell me, why is there also an article link there that talks about Orkoraptor being an allosaur?

That paper also calls it a Megaraptoran. In fact it's the paper that names Megaraptora, and the five taxa referred to Megaraptora in the description (found to be in it by a phylogenetic analysis) are Aerosteon, Australovenator, Fukuiraptor, Megaraptor, and Orkoraptor. At the time (2010) analyses returned Megaraptorans as Allosauroids (more specifically Neovenatorids), but the juvenile Megaraptor hadn't been found yet and wasn't factored into the analysis. Porfiri et al. 2014's analysis did include the juvenile, and with its data Megaraptorans returned as Tyrannosauroids. But no matter what Megaraptorans are, it's pretty likely that Orkoraptor is one.

User pageEdit

Hello, I find the statements, possibly intended to be humorous, about the "Anti Unnatural Love Society" on your user page to be inappropriate. Both trapping and brainwashing people are acts of violence and you appear to be advocating those acts. I have no objection to you stating your beliefs, but I think you should remove statements describing violence. Wikipedia's guidance on this issue is expressed at Wikipedia:User pages#Statements of violence. Thank you.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  06:46, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Alright, it's deleted. I was a little immature then.
Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  15:11, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Vertebrate fauna of the Maastrichtian stageEdit

You have added a LOT of information to that page. I applaud you for your diligence and effort. But perhaps the descriptions have a little too much information? Several genera have full paragraphs. This is probably not the place to list, for example, all of Quilmesaurus's diagnostic features. Would it be okay if I trimmed it down a bit? Shuvuuia (talk) 17:11, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

I think that those descriptions were needed because they discuss the uniqueness of each species. You can't just reduce it to just what classification they are with no period at the end.
Please respond to me.
((talk page watcher) @Shuvuuia: - this will create a notice for Shuvuuia.  SchreiberBike | ⌨  01:57, 22 March 2015 (UTC))
Admittedly, lack of periods was my personal sloppiness. I confess, I shaved them down too much. I apologize. But this page appears to be intended more as a simple list of what lived in the Maastrichtian stage, not a huge repository of information about them. And not every species needs a unique description. For some species the descriptions delved into detailed anatomical jargon, which is probably not what people going to this page want to see. If a reader wants to know what makes each species unique, they'll probably go to their articles, which are literally linked to right there on the page. In at least one instance, the article didn't have much more information than the description on this page did! And more than once there were descriptions of traits in a species that were kinda unnecessary and redundant because said species has a picture of it on the page which clearly shows said traits. If descriptions are required at all I personally think they shouldn't be more than a couple sentences long, to avoid excessive detail and an overly long article.
But if you feel obliged to revert to the longer descriptions, go ahead.
Shuvuuia (talk) 04:39, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

I apologize for what happened last time. But I'm going to try again to make the descriptions shorter. I copied the sauropod section to a user page and trimmed it down to something I feel is appropriate for the article - definitely more information than last time but less than what there was. It's at User:Shuvuuia/Sandbox. You are welcome to review it and give your opinion. If you feel it's satisfactory, I'll copy it to the main article and continue with other sections. Shuvuuia (talk) 17:16, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Also it probably isn't a good idea to directly copy blocks of text, which may have unnecessary anatomical jargon or other details that aren't required, from other articles. In the future please put it into your own words. Shuvuuia (talk) 17:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

I guess we have come to an agreement.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Re: MegaraptoraEdit

Hi Wesley, I notice that you have reverted the megaraptoran taxonomy template to displaying them as neovenatorids. There is no consensus about its position at present, and explicitly naming them as neovenatorids blatantly contradicts the text of Megaraptora. Lythronaxargestes (talk) 03:20, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
