broken citation in Gregory Peck[edit]

Hi, in your edits, you removed a cite definition resulting in an error (ref 229). Please review your edits and restore the definition, thanks. Schazjmd (talk) 17:28, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Actually, what you did is called a named ref that had never been defined. I've undone that edit. Schazjmd (talk) 21:17, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Your partner is editing again[edit]

A while back you had some issues with your partner coming home and editing as an IP on some of the same articles where you were involved in content disagreements. Just a heads up that your partner seems to have returned to this on entries such as Aerosmith. Larry Hockett (Talk) 04:06, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Advice[edit]

Hi, I can see you're still getting into lots of disputes and edit warring, and I think I need to give some further advice.

Part of the problem you're running into is that you're walking up to good and featured articles and making wholesale changes to them, then getting argumentative when you are challenged. As Shshshsh explained when reverting you at Katharine Hepburn, "This lead is the accepted FA version, if you want to change it then discuss it on the talk page." While nobody owns articles, featured articles, and to a lesser extent, good articles, have been vetted by the community and there is a general agreement that what is presented is acceptable. And while it's also possible to do some improvements via copyediting, adding additional content without consensus or sources, and then arguing about it is just going to lead to you trouble.

My advice would be to focus on articles that need attention. A suitable place to start might be Category:Wikipedia articles with style issues by issue When an article has a maintenance tag at the top of the page, it's generally an indicator that nobody has worked on it extensively (or not recently) and therefore it needs work. If you focus on those sorts of articles, you're not going to run into issues.

I'm saying this because I'm concerned that the edit warring and incivility from you is likely to lead to a block if things don't change, and this is one way of doing it. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 13:55, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

Talkpages[edit]

They're there for a reason. Use them. Edit summaries and bluster at ANI are no substitute for consensus and explanation, especially in articles that have been extensively reviewed. Acroterion (talk) 04:26, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 60 hours for persistently making disruptive edits. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.  Acroterion (talk) 14:39, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Since you've made no attempt to discuss your edits with anyone in the appropriate places, and continue to disparage other editors, I've blocked you. I expect that some form of community sanction will be applied at ANI, unless you can provide assurance that you will address the behavior issues (as opposed to the content that you continue to inappropriately argue at ANI) that initiated the ANI discussion. Being convinced that you're right doesn't exempt you from the encyclopedia's behavioral conventions. Acroterion (talk) 14:53, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Note[edit]

I don't get much sense that you've been paying attention to what anyone else has asked you to consider. You appear to be treating Wikipedia as a battlefield upon which you must prevail, on your terms, without any concession to anyone else. You keep arguing about content when you should be recognizing the shortcomings of your treatment of other editors. You are welcome to prove me wrong by visiting a talkpage and cordially and collegially making a case for your suggested changes, convincing people you're right. If you lash out at anyone again, you will just be blocked. Administrators aren't judges of content - we're prohibited from doing so for a host of reasons, and I'm not going to start now. We deal with behavior. Please reconsider your approach to your interactions with other editors. Acroterion (talk) 04:47, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
