However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Tiananmen Square protestsEdit

I reverted the edits you had made, because the reference of "Tiananmen Square protests" seems to be very off topic regarding the subjects of Libya, it's already noted that Gaddafi no where mentions to kill any civilians, but he said "peaceful protests are one thing, and armed rebellion is other"[1], That's it.

If I can get consensus, I would like to list you all under Category:WikiProject Japan participants. As of now, you will not be listed unless you switch to the other User box {{User WP Japan}}.

And if you really do not want to get listed, would you still mind switching to the other User box and use the feature that suppresses listing?

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability 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. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

June 2016Edit

  Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow, or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus. This includes making page moves while a discussion remains under way. We have some guidelines to help with deciding what title is best for a subject. If you would like to experiment with page titles and moving, please use the test Wikipedia. Thank you.

Asian 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:59, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Invitation from Wikipedia Asian MonthEdit

Based on your interests here on Wikipedia, you've been invited to join Wikipedia Asian Month!

Wikipedia Asian Month is an annual online edit-a-thon aimed at enhancing the understanding among Asian Wikipedia communities. Taking place through November 2016, the purpose of Asian Month on the English Wikipedia is to improve the quantity and quality of articles about Asian countries and regions. Last year, over 7,000 articles were contributed in 43 languages in Wikipedia Asian Month.

As a symbol of friendship between Wikipedia's Asian communities, each participant who create at least Four (4) articles that fulfill the criteria will receive a special designed Wikipedia postcard from Asian participating countries.

Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors".

Thank you for considering! AddisWang (talk) 17:13, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Edit summaries at tendentious articleEdit

  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)
 

I noticed your recent edit to Presidency of Donald Trump does not have an edit summary. 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. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing →   Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary.

When you make large or small changes, but especially large ones like this it's important to say what you did so others don't have to go through the article history to figure it out. Thanks. - Brianhe (talk) 21:28, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

ReferencesEdit

Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:00, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

LA ethnic sidebarEdit

Hi! Regarding this edit I re-nested Taiwanese with Chinese because by Chinese I mean all Huaren (ethnic Chinese), not just people from the People's Republic of China.

While there are some Taiwanese Aboriginese, almost all Taiwanese in the US are Han Chinese, so "Taiwanese" is a subset of "Chinese" which also includes Mainlanders, Hong Kongers, and those from Southeast Asia (Malaysia/Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, etc) WhisperToMe (talk) 17:17, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Public display of affection and DisgustEdit

Wildcursive兄, please give me a hand on watching the recent edits by user:Cold Season ([3][4]). This user favors Chinese culture and is deleting the content that is related "disgusting" Chinese culture, but specifically single out Manchu and Japanese ones. All the sources he is citing about Manchus actually came from one - Shirokogorov's, Social Organization of the Manchus: A Study of the Manchu Clan Organization which is based on Shirokogorov's visit to Northern Manchuria (not all Manchus) in 1900s and is obviously out of date, too. He has been doing this for years, so he will be doing this back and forth. Thanks!遇到中国主义者挑事,只删减对中国不利的内容,还请老兄帮忙监视回退。--Šolon (talk) 12:59, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Asian Games medal tablesEdit

I think it doesn't hurt to check more carefully before just reverting edits. I spent lots of time checking every single medalists for every single sport to have the accurate medal table for all Asian Games. unfortunately OCA website was (and still is) very careless and there are so many mistakes in their medal tally. as I wrote in 1994 talk page I have the complete list of medalists from China, they won 126. and for 2002. there is a mistake because they took a gold medal from India but later gave it back to them. actually that accident had been mentioned in the article you probably didn't even read that.

UMT and barnstar for you!Edit

Hey wildcursive, I am writing to let you know i restored a lot of the material you wrote that got reverted by those two possibly COI ip accounts - 173.73.93.149 and 38.118.25.194 - who had been edit-warring with you on the umt page. I have kept the page on my watchlist and i trust you will do the same - i have a feeling they will stop edit warring. I also reverted what this user wrote because it is just trash written by an account that is most likely a sockpuppet of the same two accounts.

And as the title says on a personal note...

If you think this was a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Zanhe (talk) 02:55, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Wildcursive, please be aware of the WP:3RR rule which limits how many times an editor can restore the same material in face of opposition by others. When there is a disagreement, people are expected to search for agreement on the talk page and not to keep on reverting. Edit warring can lead to blocks. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 03:28, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Commission on Presidential DebatesEdit

Another user explained why your changes were unnecessary, convoluted, and poorly written. I have told you the same. I am not sure if English is native to you, but this is not good English In October 2020, Bob Dole, the Republican Party's presidential nominee in 1996 and vice presidential nominee in 1976 who had joined two and one debates, respectively, expressed that "I am concerned that none of them (commission members) support @realDonaldTrump. A biased Debate Commission is unfair."[26][27][28][29]. We are asking you simply to write it in plain English better than you are doing. You are also using deprecated sources, which should not be used on wikipedia. You can see this list here. Koncorde (talk) 22:12, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

October 2020Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, we would like you to assume good faith while interacting with other editors, which you did not do on Commission on Presidential Debates. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Your edit summary. Doug Weller talk 15:56, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

TheNationalPulseEdit

I reverted the changes you made both to Antonia Hernandez and the Debate Commission pages as the NationalPulse is not a reliable source. In particular it is a highly partisan source of pretty much no fact checking standard. If we want to deal with specifics of the article in particular; it quotes two members of the pro-China lobby group and Confucius Institute-sponsoring Asia Society as part of its attack line. These "two members" are Kevin Rudd, the former Prime Minister of Australia, and Orville Schell, a highly respected expert on China and decorated journalist and author. Meanwhile it's five fellows at Chinese Communist Party-funded universities attack line includes a batch of philosophers and a respected political theorist in Rajeev Bhargava who also work at dozens of other universities. In short, its reporting even at a glance should tell you it holds no water. Koncorde (talk) 21:40, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

January 2021Edit

Your recent editing history at Li-Meng Yan 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.
We don't measure content by the persons own claims about themselves. We write based on what third parties say about their claims. Inclusion of significant quantities of her own POV, particularly irrelevant details designed to create an aura of respectability for what is effectively a scientific blog post is not fundamentally encyclopedic. Koncorde (talk) 22:35, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Please stop summarising sources to push your own POV. Please stop writing in wikivoice what is your opinion, or giving weight to claims being made that are unsupported opinions the person. When you push a POV by "quoting" someone extensively you are still pushing a POV as we require secondary sources to analyse. Koncorde (talk) 05:40, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

  You may be blocked from editing without further warning the next time you vandalize Wikipedia by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at Oppah Muchinguri. The opening paragraph of the reliable source provided states "Public health experts in Zimbabwe are condemning remarks by the country’s defense minister who accused China of botched "experiments" as responsible for the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world." any inference outside of this is your OPINION and intentionally trying to push a POV. Koncorde (talk) 06:46, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Final warning from me too. If you keep inserting that kind of NPOV- and BLP-violating material (which seems to misrepresents what the sources say) and write those kinds of edit summaries, I will block you from that article. And if you continue this behavior across other articles, you may find yourself blocked altogether. Drmies (talk) 15:14, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

March 2021Edit

  Hello. I have noticed that you often edit without using an edit summary. Please do your best to always fill in the summary field. This helps your fellow editors use their time more productively, rather than spending it unnecessarily scrutinizing and verifying your work. Even a short summary is better than no summary, and summaries are particularly important for large, complex, or potentially controversial edits. Thanks! - wolf 17:35, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

April 2021Edit

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at Li-Meng Yan, you may be blocked from editing. Please cease pushing your POV and anti-China opinion. We use reliable sources only for the content of our articles. We do not speculate. We do not perform our own analysis. We do not assert universal truths based on an authors opinion - particularly controversial non-peer reviewed pre-print "science" papers which have already been widely discredited and as WP:PRIMARY should never be presented in wikivoice to make inflammatory claims. You have been warned multiple times previously for this. Ping @Drmies: as prior involved Admin for advice. Koncorde (talk) 07:45, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Request reason:

This is an article of the author I quoted! I don’t know from what time the subject of the article’s own words in her own research cannot be edited into the article while others’ words can be put here disproportionally? Then what are those other persons’ words for? Many of those too long paragraphs are neither by this person nor published in any peer-review journal. Is this fair at all? Science is about debate and Wikipedia records the fact and history of what she believes as truth, right? Wikipedia cannot tolerate editors using her own words to introduces her in the article about herself even they are much less than others' crazy-ten-line-long quotes?

The author has both a Medical Doctor's degree and a Ph.D. degree. She worked for the WHO reference lab and her papers have been published before. She knows what you do not know. She presents lots of evidence in English and Chinese. All views and downloads of her 5 papers/reports/responses have exceeded 2.5 million. The latest one deleted unreasonably has gained 128,000 views and downloads in 10 days which means they are gaining huge attention. She has appeared on many media in U.S., UK, Spain, India... Both right and left media had covered the origin of the virus and pandemic with Chinese labs and related findings. Why Wikipedia ignores this purposely? Isn't that strange?
I don’t believe those who tried to cover up have any qualifications to judge these papers. Does he or she know China’s bioweapon plans since decades ago? Do they have any published papers about the topic? We can quote a person’s own words or sentences only after he or she published them in a journal? Then 95% of articles about a person on Wikipedia should be rewritten thoroughly!
This pandemic already killed 3 million people all around the world. Most doubted how this could happen. Many experts in academia in the U.S., Europe, and Asia and governments (including former President Trump, former Deputy NSC advisor, former White House staff, Secretaries of State Pompeo and Blinen, virologist and former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield, WHO advisor & former Biden staff, and the bipartisan Senate/House Acts) already mentioned China’s virus labs and cover-up. Read the papers, not cover up China's bioweapon plans. News:

Yan's papers:

Others' papers:

If Wikipedia censors the author’s wording like China, covers up for the Chinese communist regime, and suppresses open access for further discussion on the important issue, HISTORY WILL SOON PROVE YOU ARE WRONG!

Wildcursive (talk) 16:23, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Decline reason:

This is a pretty compelling argument that your block should indeed be extended indefinitely. See WP:RIGHTGREATWRONGS, WP:FRINGE, and WP:GAB. You are welcome to request a new unblock request but I warn you, you'll want to read and thoroughly understand everything written in those policies and guidelines before doing so.

Wildcursive (block logactive blocksglobal blockscontribsdeleted contribsfilter logcreation logchange block settingsunblockcheckuser (log))


Request reason:

As the White House, the State Department among many other countries, militaries, and scientists still demand real full investigations, there are no answers for the pandemic at this moment. When there is still no confirmed version of the origin of the virus at all, who can define what are fringe theories and what are not. So deleting her own words as a possible scenario is logically implausible. Even this approach may be fringe before it is proved, other theories are also suspected and challenged by many. Some persons who denied or attacked her are already caught with conflict of interest problems as they are either actually involved in such lab scheme or had taken something from China. If they are capable and trustworthy, the virus cannot claim the lives of 570,000 Americans and punch the country.
The Whistleblower Dr. Yan's papers still can be proved as correct as she provides insights and critical intelligence to reveal what China tries to hide. More and more people, media, and organizations are discussing her approach. The author's view with lots of evidence deserved to be included in the article per WP:PROPORTION. Actually, many experts believe her explanations of the gain of function experiments in Chinese labs make biological sense. There is no reason for her to give up everything she had to flee to the U.S. to tell lies. Judge only after you really read or browse the papers and try to understand them.
State Department website mentions this lab approach in Fact Sheet: Activity at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Ensuring a Transparent, Thorough Investigation of COVID-19’s Origin State Secretary Blinken calls "we’ll keep pushing for a complete and transparent investigation into the origins of this epidemic, to learn what happened – so it doesn’t happen again. ... We’ve got to make sure that we can better detect, prevent, prepare for, and respond to future pandemics and other biological threats. ... This is a pivotal moment – a time for us to think big and act boldly." The author's research obviously fits into this "complete and transparent" spectrum. She and her research fit the requirements of Wikipedia:Notability. Rush deleting and blocking is unreasonable, especially on Wikipedia! Wildcursive (talk) 21:34, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Decline reason:

As noted already, you are lucky the block was not indefinite. This request does not address your actions. If your next request is no different, you will likely be blocked as WP:NOTHERE and possibly have your access to this page removed. I suggest you change course now. 331dot (talk) 07:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Comment - as can be seen, user is unable to not suspend own animus towards China as a topic. Has repeatedly in the past misrepresented sources to that end, and when introducing content cannot avoid inserting own personal take or writing from the a conclusive position based upon their opinion. Yans "papers" (many being open letters) are uploaded to Zenodo and make a series of scientific claims. There is little mainstream coverage post her initial arrival on thr scene last year. Taking her content as written even in her own bio on wikipedia, and then writing it as WildCursive does places her claims in our voice without the mediation of any secondary sources. This is WP:OR, and certainly subject to WP:FRINGE in addition to various concerns over BLP. User is invested in RIGHTGREATWRONGS and SOAPBOX using wikipedia as a vehicle. Demonstrates a largely NOTHERE attitude when it comes to any topic even tangentally associated with China. Koncorde (talk) 16:49, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

fyiEdit

You should stop posting, like right now. While you're blocked, the only thing you're supposed to use your talk page for is to post an unblock request (have you even read WP:GAB...?) Continuing to argue a content dispute will, at the very least get your talk page access revoked, but in all likelihood you will end up indefinitely blocked. If you want to continue editing, and working on that article, you should stop posting and just wait out the two weeks. (Just some friendly advice) - wolf 23:11, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

I follow the suggestion and do not appeal here at this moment. However, I still firmly believe it’s legitimate to have paragraphs to introducing Yan’s works in herown article rather than let attacks stay on the page but not allowing her words to respond and defend herself. It’s a ridiculous and strange double standard to discriminate against her on Wikipedia, compared to most other individuals’ articles.
The U.S. death toll due to the Wuhan virus 561,783 has reached the Spanish flu pandemic. From last January till 2021/4/11, there are 1057 positive cases and 11 deaths in the 24-million Taiwan while there are 2692 confirmed cases and 35 deaths in the 98-million Vietnam (maybe a little bit more as there’s no freedom of speech and press there). How this could happen in the neighbors of China? These two countries are very cautious about China and know well for a long time about its dirty tricks. Taiwanese people and Vietnamese people can control the pandemic from the first step because they don’t trust what the Chinese said. It’s a pity that most Americans are still so naïve today.
I read Yan’s works and understand most of them. Not every person can comprehend now. That’s fine. But the wrong direction wastes time and cannot really solve the pandemic. However, someday in the near future, you will know she is right! These words are for history! --Wildcursive (talk) 12:18, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Reiterating your point of view without using an unblock request is not really the point. Just stop. Meters (talk) 00:10, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
