Welcome!

Hello, Electricmaster, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, like Jacks wine, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines for page creation, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

Speedy deletion nomination of Jacks wine[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Jacks wine, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Netalarm 10:12, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

July 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from a page you have created yourself. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, you can place a {{hangon}} tag on the page, under the existing speedy deletion tag (please do not remove the speedy deletion tag), and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. Netalarm 10:17, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg Please stop removing speedy deletion notices from pages that you have created yourself, as you did with Jacks wine. If you continue, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Kotiwalo (talk) 10:22, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Stop hand nuvola.svg This is the last warning you will receive for your disruptive edits.
The next time you remove a speedy deletion notice from a page you have created yourself, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia. Netalarm 10:26, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Josh Saunders[edit]

Hi there, a couple of things about making articles about draftees like Saunders. Most other sports around the world are fairly strict on not making articles on new recruits until they have played in a fully professional league. We are generally a bit more lenient, but it is really important that you find some significant coverage in independent reliable sources. That means not just a brief mention in a match report, not just on the club website and definitely not from a forum or Facebook. Speaking of Facebook, did you get the photo of Saunders from Facebook? Do you really own the rights to it or know that it has been released into the public domain? You can't just copy photos from other websites. Regards, The-Pope (talk) 14:34, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Josh Saunders (Australian footballer), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Victoria (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Category:American men by occupation[edit]

Hi Electricmaster. Please don't add any more articles to Category:American men by occupation. As stated in the category header, that category should only contain other categories. Individual articles should be added to the appropriate subcategory, e.g. Arj Barker, Jerry Seinfeld and Marc Maron belong in Category:American male comedians. (I have fixed these three articles). Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 08:52, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

thank you. I thought I had put them under the relevant subcategory. Thanks for fixing my mistakes.

FYI : Acceptable date styles[edit]

There are only two acceptable date styles in Wikipedia articles. Today's date, for example, can be either "18 August 2015" or "August 18, 2015". The second is usually used in articles related to the United States. Afterwriting (talk) 08:32, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

February 2020[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Four color theorem a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. Cheers, Polyamorph (talk) 14:02, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

Youtuber/streamer katerinos video called "an update" has, of April 27th 2020, 422,000 dislikes. I feel like this should be added as it is a very heavily disliked video Koolaidjammers69 (talk) 08:35, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 1[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Motivation (Sum 41 song), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page In Too Deep (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Tigran L. Petrosian[edit]

Hi Electricmaster! I've reverted your edit to Tigran L. Petrosian but improved the article in this edit, with the edit summary: Reddit is not a reliable source because anyone can edit. Instead, sources published by respected publications with editorial fact-checking policies - such as The Guardian and specialist source ChessBase - can be used to determine which content we should talk about in this section. Let me know if you have any questions, about this content or about any other aspects of editing Wikipedia. Thanks! — Bilorv (talk) 23:57, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Eddie Izzard[edit]

Hey there, I just wanted to let you know I have moved your edit to Eddie Izzard further down the article lead section. This is to reflect previous reverts of this statement.

Cheers,
