July 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Signalizing. I wanted to let you know that I undid one of your recent contributions, such as the one you made with this edit to Michael Tonkin, because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Signalizing (talk) 18:57, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

The recent edit you made to Michael Tonkin has been reverted, as it removed all content from the page without explanation. Please do not do this, as it is considered vandalism; instead, use the sandbox for testing. If you think the page should be deleted, see here for what to do. Thank you. Lugia2453 (talk) 21:17, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for reaching out to me, and for clarifying your intentions. I have placed an under construction template on Michael Tonkin, so that other editors know you're doing major work on the article. I appreciate your enthusiasm to improving our baseball coverage. I'd encourage you to try our tutorial, to hone your skills as an editor. If you're interested in baseball, you may be interested to know that we have a working group of editors that focuses on Baseball, which we like to call WikiProjects. Not only are they more than willing to help you hone your article, but if you'd like to help Wikipedia's baseball coverage, they could definitely use an extra editor's assistance. Finally, one of the key policies I'd like to caution you on as your write this article is our notability policy for baseball players. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to reach out to me. Also, welcome to Wikipedia! Signalizing (talk) 13:45, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Herm Starrette[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your good faith edit but this subject's obituary indicates he was born in 1936, not 1938. Quis separabit? 23:04, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Please use edit summaries[edit]

Information icon 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. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks! 32.218.40.105 (talk) 03:00, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

August 2017[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Doniago. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Rob Pilatus, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. DonIago (talk) 20:41, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

Please stop changing content on Wikipedia without adding a reference to support your changes, like you have been doing at List of deaths from drug overdose and intoxication here [1], here [2] and here[3]. Whether your information is correct or not is irrelevant. If you wish to make changes, you will need to provide reliable sources to support your claims.

Please also start using edit summaries; you have already been told to do this. Freikorp (talk) 09:35, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure what it was about the above message that you did not understand. You cannot change information in the List of deaths from drug overdose and intoxication without providing a reliable source like you have done again here :[4]. Even if Chet did say he would kill himself on stage, that's not a reliable indicator that his death was accidental. He could have changed his mind. In any case, whether you are correct or not is irrelevant. You need a reliable source. Please do not make any further edits to this list unless you find a reliable source to support your claims. Damien Linnane (talk) 09:34, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

List of oldest living Major League Baseball players[edit]

Please stop adding more players to the hidden list. There are many reasons for this, among them WP:SIZE. Please use the talk page for further discussion — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.246.129.15 (talk) 02:58, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello CRussG![edit]

Just today, I read your message posted on March 30. Due to some personal circumstances, I decided to take a break from Wikipedia, beginning in mid-March and probably lasting at least a month. In the meantime, I hope to check in occasionally to do some minor and check my talkpage. I hope to return as soon as possible to continue my contributions. Thanks for your attention. MusiCitizen (talk) 13:39, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

May 2018[edit]

I noticed your recent change to Mari-Rae Sopper, noting that she "...was born here according to the 9/11 memorial". Do you have a link to demonstrate this? Thanks, GauchoDude (talk) 23:11, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Please stop adding unsourced content, as you did to Clay Buchholz. This contravenes Wikipedia's policy on verifiability. If you continue to do so, you may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Magnolia677 (talk) 22:44, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Can you please add your references to George Foss (baseball)? Thanks, Boleyn (talk) 06:45, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello, can you please add your references? 'External links' just means 'suggestions for further reading'; what were your sources? Boleyn (talk) 16:47, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
Can you please respond? WP:Communication is required. Thanks, Boleyn (talk) 17:07, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

George Foss (baseball) moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, George Foss (baseball), 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. Boleyn (talk) 14:19, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

George Foss (baseball)[edit]

Hello, CRussG. I moved the above article to draftspace as part of New Page Patrol. We do this when a topic has merit (a an MLB player, he should have an article) but it doesn't yet meet the requirements for the mainspace. In this case, it is a biography of a living person with no references, so would be at risk of being proposed for deletion. It is a requirement that biographies of living people have WP:INLINECITED references. This only has 'external links' which means 'suggestions for further reading' and doesn't tell us what your sources were for sure. You moved it back to the mainspace with no attempt to fix the identified problem. Could you now please fix it? Before moving it, I sent you a message (which you ignored) giving you extra time to solve the issue. Thanks, Boleyn (talk) 08:45, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Could you please respond? Boleyn (talk) 16:48, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Communication[edit]

Hello, can you please respond to my messages at User talk:CRussG#References? Thanks, Boleyn (talk) 10:26, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

CRussG, please be aware that WP:Communication is required, as part of the policies WP:DISPUTE and WP:CONDUCT. Please respond to the above messages. Boleyn (talk) 21:09, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Preview and consolidate, summarize[edit]

Below are a few editing suggestions to make it easier for you and others to collaborate on the encyclopedia. Please preview, consolidate, and summarize your edits:

  • Try to consolidate your edits, at least at the section level, to avoid cluttering the page's edit history; this makes it easier for your fellow editors to understand your intentions, and makes it easier for those monitoring activity on the article.
    • The show preview button (beside the "publish changes" button) is helpful for this; use it to view your changes incrementally before finally saving the page once you're satisfied with your edits.
  • Please remember to explain each edit with an edit summary (box above the "publish changes" button).

Thanks in advance for considering these suggestions. Eric talk 00:00, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Mel Stottlemyre obituary[edit]

Hi CRG. Thanks for your suggestion regarding this topic. I simply added some omissions and rewrote the text content. Have you a good day. MusiCitizen (talk) 18:08, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Communication and references[edit]

In 6 years you have never responded to a message from another editor. This is a collaborative project - we need to talk to each other at times. WP:Communication is required, it is a key element of the policies WP:CONDUCT and WP:DISPUTE.

Referencing is also really important. Can you please respond to my messages at User_talk:CRussG#References. Boleyn (talk) 17:10, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Ditto. Eric talk 18:11, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
It's been almost a week, please communicate. Boleyn (talk) 20:32, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
I've had problems with this editor changing referenced content over at List of deaths from drug overdose and intoxication for years without providing any sources to support their claims. They are well aware they are causing problems yet they persist in their disruption. I'd say it's time to block them from editing. Damien Linnane (talk) 09:38, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
CRussG, this has continued long enough that it may now need to go to WP:ANI. Can you please respond to my messages - I am trying to work with you. Boleyn (talk) 06:29, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
CRUssG, please respond - we are trying to work with you but it can't go on like this. The issues could be easily resolved - please just communicate. Boleyn (talk) 13:05, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

2019 in Baseball[edit]

Hello CRG. After a short break, I resumed my activity on Wikipedia today and updated the obituary section of the aforementioned page, something that is of interest to you, so I added four entries for the month of March.
