Although my edit count entitles me to be “A Tutnum”, I make so many small, incremental edits, that I think I should be a “Half Tutnum”, in keeping with my WikiGnome status! WikiGnomes are rather short in stature.

A few facts...[edit]

References...I actually like to read them! At this point, much of my editing is wiki gnoming to format, reFill or rescue citations. I like the challenge of hunting for sources to resolve missing citations. Editing for grammar, spelling and sentence clarity is also a favorite. I'm not doing very much actual composing, just now, because I'm hunting and pecking on an iPad.

I was born the same year this territory became a state. So when I vacationed there many years later, it seemed most appropriate to go swimming in my birthday suit; once on this beach, and numerous times on another one. Thankfully, cell phones did not have cameras, at the time. This city, which was the site of a well-known Civil Rights Movement sit-in, is my birthplace.

Some good work[edit]

Articles where I have edited well...

  • Alan B. Scott Lent a hand to a COI, but entirely good faith, editor
  • Gerald Bonner Began as a COI rescue, but I did a great deal more actual editing and good research here, and even learned how to add images! Before:[1]After:[2].
  • Atsuhiro Osuka I really made a difference with this article, because I added the Festschrift, which an Admin stated was the deciding factor, in terms of proof of notability. Because of this, he moved it to Mainspace! Before:[3] After: [4]
  • Kerala snakebite murder Much copyediting, and well as adding sources, and a great deal of text, etc. I truly made a large contribution here. Yes, it is a weird sort of article, but I am pleased. Before[5]. After:[6].

Userboxes[edit]

Many years ago, there was an adage which stated: “At a dinner party, never discuss sex, politics or religion.” Now, in September 2020, there has been a controversy concerning userboxes. I have no desire to infringe on an editor’s personal beliefs. But it seems to me that if we “banned” userboxes which refer to these three topics, we could avoid a source of contention, or at least reduce the risk of offending our fellow editors. I have my own strongly held beliefs on some of the three topics. I do not feel that it is necessary to declare my beliefs on Wikipedia. Surely, we can define ourselves in positive declarative words, rather than resorting to negative declarations regarding people we oppose.

The Wikipedia Adventure!

The Wikipedia Adventure (TWA) is a seven mission interactive tutorial that introduces new editors to basic Wikiquette, policy, and editing skills while earning sixteen editor badges along the way. TWA is a great way to learn the basics fast, without trial and error and is even a great way for experienced or returning editors to freshen up on their skills. Wikipedia is not a game, but a fun way of learning. TWA only takes about an hour.

Humor on the Wiki[edit]

A few of my favorites, spotted through the years....

At the Teahouse[edit]

Why do u guys have to ruin our fun — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.255.13.111 (talk) 17:27, 7 March 2018‎ (UTC)

Because we're awful, terrible people, who really only set up this site in the first place to attract vandals so we could annoy them. GMGtalk 17:28, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
I cannot speak for the group, but I ruin your fun because I take riotous relish in your disappointment. I live for the ecstatic high that is correcting factual information. Your pain, my friend, is the field in which I frolic, and even the most verbose vocabulary is unable to adequately explain just how must joy I derive from reverting vandalism. Every edit is a sign that I, and that all those who defend this bastion of human knowledge, am winning, and ruining the fun of those who seek to demolish this great enterprise brings sheer joy, like that of a kestrel in flight. So, my friend, fall, gall thyself, and gash gold-vermillion, for there are but three mere constants in this celestial voyage we label life - death, taxes and editing spoilsports. Stormy clouds (talk) 17:58, 7 March 2018 (UTC)

Request for Boomerang site ban[edit]

It is now crystal clear that [...] has taken a flying leap over the bar of WP:NOTHERE and is enthusiastically setting out for the outer rim territories of time-wasting tendentious editing. Their complaints that started this thread have little, if any merit. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 16:44, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Bishzilla[edit]

It isn't often that I chortle with glee, while reading WP. But the appearances of Bishzilla make me laugh aloud!

Ohh, the raptures... her graceful snout, her fiery eyes, her learned and idiosyncratic discourse! She brings joy to the hearts of all who love her, and worship from afar. (Like *really* far away, those flames look dangerous!)

With gratitude, Tribe of Tiger

Resurrection: From talkpage of Pontius Pilate[edit]

  • So you want us to ignore mainstream widely accepted consensus because........? No reason pretty much. I'm an atheist and I accept Jesus existed, same way I accept Caesar was real, even if I don't belive their devine parenthood.★Trekker (talk) 22:20, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • What consensus? That Pilates really ordered to crucify Jesus?--Paul Siebert (talk) 22:23, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • The consensus that Jesus existed.★Trekker (talk) 22:24, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Really?--Paul Siebert (talk) 22:31, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Yes, really.--Ermenrich (talk) 22:33, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Had he been crucified, and after three days revived?--Paul Siebert (talk) 22:39, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • The article nowhere claims he was resurrected, nor do historical Jesus scholars say this. But the crucifixion is accepted as historical fact by the overwhelming consensus of scholars. Crucifixion does not necessarily lead to resurrection as far as I know.--Ermenrich (talk) 22:42, 29 July 2019 (UTC) [My bold, Tribe of Tiger]
  • Nowhere does it says he was revived. Stop making nonsense claims.★Trekker (talk) 23:02, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Proper English, from Fish and Karate's talk[edit]

Hi buddy, yes, I can speak english fluently. Which specific part is not understandable? greetings.--[[User:Sarmiento 007|Sarmiento 007 ([[User talk:Sarmiento 007|talk 12:33, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

@Sarmiento 007: The following bits of your edit were not written in accurate, understandable English:
  • the pirate Trafalgar Law is based in this pirate (presume you mean "is based ON this pirate")
  • Low used to enjoy torturating other pirates (presume this means "Low used to enjoy TORTURING other pirates" - and there's nothing in the article that suggests this is the case)
  • the surgeon of the death (no idea - maybe "The Surgeon of Death"?)
  • because he can split the enemies with his devil fruit's hability (what on earth does this even mean) Note per Tribe of Tiger. Every time I read this, it makes me laugh! Devil's fruit hability.

The very poor English above makes me wonder whether there's a language issue, which would explain things. And the two references you provided are blogs. Blogs are not reliable sources I'm afraid. I'm being very patient here, and I appreciate you are just trying to help, but the edit really didn't improve the article, it made the article worse. fish&karate

Dude, I really appreciate your help, thank you very much, and for your information, Trafalgar Law can divide (split) the parts of the body of the people. You would understand it if you would see One Piece. Hugs, buddy ;) . --[[User:Sarmiento 007|

  • "....the WMF doesn't operate a pharmacy." I'm actually quite reassured by that. Even it is idiotic. Just sayin'. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:32, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Not a personal attack and not even about you. Lets not be the drama llama. Also the comment was pretty silly.AlmostFrancis (talk) 15:35, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    Given the subject matter, surely a pharma drama llama? GirthSummit (blether) 15:40, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
    Or Lama pharma? --T*U (talk) 15:54, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Ah, yes, Burma-Shave No. 64391​23, found here. Lev!vich 02:09, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
@Levivich:, yes, that's it! Many blessings and may the wheel of your llama karma turn smoothly towards rebirth. Perhaps as a giraffe?

Edit warring poem[edit]

To war, or not to war
That is the question
Whether tis nobler in the mind
To suffer the slings and arrows launched by a fool
Or take Arms against a Sea of deletions
And by restoring, oppose them.

      Drmies, Hey, hey, Textile Artist!! I used to resemble that remark! (Actually earned an income, and taught classes that people enjoyed.

So, now, let us consider. Imagine that for one day, the entire US had to do without the products created by "English Professors", created in the last 50 years, or the products created by "textile people" (they don't even have to be "artists") for the last 50 years. Say we chose to do without textiles. No sheets, towels...everyone walking about stark naked, and mostly barefoot. Cars with cloth seats would be quite uncomfortable. No carpet or drapes, or Kevlar vests. Many books would simply fall apart, without some form of textile to hold them together, on the covers and spines. Sailboats couldn't sail. How would a hospital manage without textiles? And now, what about COVID-19 masks, many of which are constructed of textiles?

Wise words[edit]

  • If you throw lots of crap at a wall for someone else to clean up, you can't come back later and complain that the wall is still dirty because they missed some spots. — Marchjuly (talk) 00:22, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
  • I will just add one of my favorite quotes, from the great Leander Hamilton McCormick: "One should beware of those who cannot or will not laugh when others are merry, for if not mentally defective they are spiteful, selfish or abnormally conceited ... Great men of all nations and of all times have possessed a keen appreciation of the ridiculous, as wisdom and wit are closely allied". (Not that I'm calling any of our esteemed fellow editors mentally defective or selfish or conceited, of course.) EEng 07:27, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

When you must use inline citations[edit]

Extended content

Wikipedia's content policies require an inline citation to a reliable source for only the following four types of statements:

Type of statement Policy requiring inline citation
Direct quotations Wikipedia:Verifiability
Any statement that has been challenged (e.g., by being removed, questioned on the talk page, or tagged with {{citation needed}}, or any similar tag) Wikipedia:Verifiability
Any statement that you believe is likely to be challenged. Wikipedia:Verifiability
Contentious material, whether negative, positive, or neutral, about living persons Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons

Other policies, notably the copyright violations policy, prohibit the inclusion of some information, such as too-close paraphrasing, even if the material is supplied with an inline citation to a reliable source.

Our sourcing policies do not require an inline citation for any other type of material, although it is typical for editors to voluntarily exceed these minimum standards. Material not supplied by an inline citation may be supported with WP:General references or sources named as inline citations for other material. If you can't find the source of a statement without an inline citation after a good-faith look, ask on the talk page, or request a citation.

Technically, if an article contains none of these four types of material, then it is not required by any policy to name any sources at all, either as inline citations or as general references. For all other types of material, the policies require only that it be possible for a motivated, educated person to find published, reliable sources that support the material, e.g., by searching for sources online or at a library. However, it is rare for articles past the stub stage to contain none of these four types of material.
