Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Why did you revert my edit because I didn't provide a "reliable source"?

I reverted your edit because on Wikipedia we are required to cite reliable secondary sources. In addition, we cannot accept original research. You might want to read:

Thanks!

I cited a source in my edit summary! Why did you revert my edit?

I reverted your edit due to concerns with verifiability. Readers only can verify the information they read if you provide an in-text citation using a template such as {{cite web}}. You can read more about how to use those templates at Wikipedia:Citing sources. If readers do not see a relevant in text citation, often they will distrust the information they read or remove it entirely. Thanks!

What does it mean when my edit "Fails WP:BLP"?

It means that your edit was reverted do to the lack of a reliable source, see the first FAQ above. Thanks!


You have "accepted" an edit that is vandalism[edit]

It appears you have accepted this edit by IP 190.151.175.221. If you take a look at the page history and observed 190.151.175.221 gross alteration of the title of cited source to fit his edit you would have understood it is vandalism. I would have expected an experienced user to be more careful when accepting edits of blue-linked IP. Sincerely — Dentren | Talk 01:24, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

@Dentren: Hi, it seems that acceptance of that edit was made in error, and if you look to my log entry that I made for this acceptance, you can see the reason why I accepted it. It was my understanding that the IP was only fixing the name of the chapter (and to be fair, it looked real since the country names were in Spanish). It would have also made sense that those countries would have looked to the Galapagos. Thanks for your feedback, as I have not come by a situation like this before. By the way - could you explain what link you're referring to when you are talking about a "blue link"; the IP user talk page or contribs? P,TO 19104 (talk) (contribs) 01:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
I mean that the link to the talk page is blue. IPs with blue-linked talkpages have often warnings. This kind of stealth vandalism is among the most dangerous. I am glad you are aware now. Hope you have a nice evening. Dentren | Talk 01:47, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I did not edit the page, “Jane Swift,” insofar as I can remember. I do need help with citations! Thanks for the link.

@67.149.220.166: Hi, the reason you were given that warning is because someone from your IP address, did in fact make an edit to Jane Swift, though it may not have been you personally. P,TO 19104 (talk) (contribs) 20:04, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

Untitled[edit]

Hi you sent me a message as to revisions to the Ilfracombe website. I am a town councillor since 1999 and was the first editor for the Ilfracombe, site developing it in the early noughties. I also chaired the district economic development board The revisions I was making were to update the details and the progress changes made in the many years since. e.g. proposed developments are now either concrete structures (skateboard park) or not and people and their businesses have come and gone i.e. Hirst's restaurants etc Ta. --Frankpearson1

@Frankperson1: Hi, please see the User talk:P,TO 19104/FAQ; you are required to cite sources regardless if you are an expert on a certain topic, please see WP:RS and WP:NOR. Additionally, please declare your conflict of interest in accordance with the WMF's terms of service. It is recommended you do not edit articles directly.

Correct ping @Frankpearson1:. P,TO 19104 (talk) (contribs) 22:14, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Ilfracombe[edit]

The process required to make the changes means I'm sorry to have neither the time nor skill set. The page on our community Ilfracombe is simply way out of time with now incorrect, misleading legacy information. These legacy defects explain the negative comments as to Wikipedia made in several recent council meetings and the amusement at my championing Wikipedia. I've been a Wikipedia champion for near 16 years. As this will not be unique to this page I cannot use Wikipedia as a reference site All things come to an end. Best of luck.

@Frankpearson1: Hi, I am sorry to see you leave Wikipedia, however, you should know that the policy of using reliable secondary sources has always been in place. You can get an introduction to editing at Help:Introduction, if I could convince you to stay. P,TO 19104 (talk) (contribs) 01:20, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Ilfracombe[edit]

There is content in the above referenced site which is incorrect and misleading. It should be either corrected or removed until corrections are made as it contains misleading false information. The Wiki claim to be accurate is a misnomer, as is your claim modifications need to be referenced without specification as to what is a reliable source. The local written media has significantly changed and sadly much of its content is scraped from other sites which have scant regard for facts. The claim made there has always been a requirement for referenced sources and it was ever thus is factually incorrect since when I developed the entry from a stub in early noughties it was then not a requirement, nor at other times since.
