I am still editing the document (just started). No need to delete contributions posted just a minute ago. ~30min later: I am still editing and adding references. Why did you revert the document back to its earlier version? Please elaborate.
Hi, Materialscientist. I'm reaching out to you b/c you're an admin at Commons and I have a question about "gifted" images. I'm writing a biography on a Mexican outlaw (deceased since 1984) and was thinking of reaching out to his family to see if they can provide us with an image of the subject. I do volunteer research with a group of unpaid journalists for a news blog called Borderland Beat and they've requested images for other subjects we've reported on in the past. The criminal was alive in the pre-Internet era so no good pictures exist online. What do I have to do on my end to ensure this image(s) are uploaded within policy once I get a hold of them? Thanks in advance. MX (? o ?) 16:04, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
Hey can you or another admin review the following users?
These four were declined on the username page [] but the reason declining was a little on the well intended but BS side, no reason to wait with obvious WP:CORPNAME and misleading vios. Hell in a Bucket (talk) 17:00, 2 March 2020 (UTC)
You've deleted part of my contribution on the grounds that it was unsourced.
I find this grossly unfair and rude. - first, the reference given supports the text. I had in mind to add more when I have more time. - second, you might have asked to add further references. I would have been happy to oblige - third, I have had in the past material removed on the ground that there was too much detail. What is right seems to vary with reviewers
Such deleting is a very efficient way of discouraging contributors. I am spending time trying to contribute on a topic I have been working on for many years as research metallurgist and as product development manager before I retired.
Now, what happens? How many references do you want to bring back the text you deleted? 4? 10? more?
Thanks for this bock - I was just about to take it to AIV myself. I wonder if you'd also consider revdelling some of that user's edits and summaries? There's some grossly offensive material and BLP violations in there. Thanks for your help. WJ94 (talk) 15:32, 3 March 2020 (UTC)
Relating to an IP editor I reported at WP:Administrator_intervention_against_vandalism. After more thorough check, I see a few have issues, but others were not completely bogus. I'd just remove it, but since there are your replies to it, I'm not sure the appropriate way of removing it without confusing the bot. How do I remove it properly?

Thank you for reverting the vandal edit at Special:Diff/943761738. Kudos to for your efforts.
By the way, since you seem to monitor and revert vandalism regularly, do you want to try WikiLoop Battlefieldactively seeking new namehttp://battlefield.wikiloop.org, a crowd-source open source tool for patrolling and reverting vandalism on Wikipedia?
...the indefinite protection on the DNA article. Five years is a very long time. Despite the continuing FA status, datedness of the article is beginning to set in, and there are persistent small issues with poor citations (e.g., whole book, rather than book pages) or content lacking sufficient secondary sourcing (and so WP:VER / WP:PSTS violations). Many faculty members will not register. We should not throw the baby (sources of good edits) out with the bathwater (the inevitable vandalism that attends high profile articles). The bots can now, in 2020, catch most instances of vandalism--aren't the good quality edits that might come worth the work required to revert the stray, last few that the bots do not catch? 2601:246:C700:19D:EC05:D6AB:3F04:2E0A (talk) 01:35, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

In regards to Bryan Emmett Clark,
Please permanently remove:
"In February 2020, Clark was arrested in Arizona on multiple felonious drug charges that took place between January and April 2019. His charges include conspiracy, transporting and/or selling narcotics, and possessing a weapon during a drug offense."
This is an ongoing investigation and are based on false allegations and are slanderous. Meanwhile you are adding to the ruination of this man's reputation that he spent years building. He has a very loyal fan base and they don't need to see this misinformation. I have removed it several times, but it keeps coming back. PLEASE REMOVE IT
You are still negatively impacting his life and reputation. Why don't you wait until there is a final outcome!!! How would you like to be in his shoes and have a complete stranger do this to you
Varma kalai is traced back to 250BCE, malayalam has a written proof from 9th century, how can varma kalai is malayalam traditional art? most of the core components of Varmakalai are traced back to ancient Tamilkam and Sangam literature. The Varma kalai page has significant reference to Siddha medicine, Agastya, Bogar who all are linked to Tamil. even then you will mention it as malayalam Tradition. Truth will prevail one day.
Where were you when this page was edited https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?s=Varma_kalai&oldid=943804300 by unknown person to malayalam language
Since the last 10 years the Varma Kalai page was refering to Tamil Traditional Arts, Some unknown person has edited it to Malayalam Trandition art and you didn't seen to bother, when I reverted his distructive edits you say My edits where not constructive.
The reason why I deleted the part is because those information are outdated. Season 18 will have finale on 13 March 2020, while season 19 is now casting. I will delete this again.

As a class at my university we are working to improve the "Beachy Head" entry. Right now we are simply testing the system out - most of us have never entered or edited a popflock.com resource Entry. The little "Adaptation" section was just to show how editing works. We will make major edits this Friday (March 13th) - please bear with us and do not act too quickly to reverse our entries - we're likely going to move in increments in order not to mess up the page or cause chaos in the entry.
Thanks for your edits.

Sorry, I'm just picking on you because I noticed you're currently active and I need to contact an EFM. Apparently I managed to trip a private filter on my own talk page while placing two edit requests, and just now as well, I suspect it has something to do with the userpages linked to, although I'm unsure. Anyway, the original request is here; the pages do need to be g3'd. 2604:2000:8FC0:4:68BA:3B32:8613:8B6D (talk) 14:14, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

You have sent me a message regarding the Pat Day page.
I am a veteran journalist who has covered horse racing and I have put in factual information as edits to the previous user who used vile and hateful descriptions to demean a Hall of Fame jockey who was one of the best in the history of Thoroughbred racing.
If you read the user's comments, they are pure opinion and are meant to degrade this great athlete. The sources he provides do not back up his mean-spirited comments.
Everything I have stated in my edits are factual.
I gather you're not motivated by barnstars, which is fine. Know that I both appreciate the essential countervandalism work you do and regret the personal attacks you suffer from mean-spirited people on behalf of the encyclopedia you protect. While many admins waste their time with political nonsense on noticeboards and talk pages, you actively defend your fellow editors and the effort they volunteered to this website. 13:45, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Please remove this paragraph at the Politics section of Kith Meng's page:
In June 2011, WikiLeaks exposed an American diplomatic cable calling Meng a "relatively young and ruthless gangster". Meng has received particular criticism regarding his land deals and land rights, being accused of using his political connections to forcefully clear questionably acquired real estate of residents and national monuments in order to proceed with development. Meng and his companies have also been the center of controversies regarding environmental issues in Cambodia, most prominently illegal logging in protected areas of the northeast (including Virachey National Park) displacing indigenous villages and destroying rural villages and fishing grounds for hydroelectric projects without compensation or proper environmental assessment reports.
You this accusation about Mr. Meng's character as a gangster is completely unfounded and is based purely on an author's subjectivity. Second, accusations that Royal Group is involved in illegal logging activities have already been unproven in Cambodian Courts and have been retracted by the Cambodian police. These are the article to the links: article 1 and article 2
Rannwas invoked but never defined (see the help page).
Gluckmanwas invoked but never defined (see the help page).
Many companies have carried out logging in this area, surrounding and inside this park, including An Mady Group, Kith Meng Group...

Hello Materialscientist. Your message says that you have reverted some of my edits, but it seems you have reverted all of them, including my carefully documented addition to the "Date". Is there a reason for that?
Hi, my Kulitan edit of it being used from the 1980s to present is accurate. There was an ancient Kapampangan script used prior to Spanish arrival, but it fell out of use over time with colonization. The script, whose picture you see vertically written out on its page, is a modern take on the ancient script and this was invented sometimes in the 80s. It's name, "Kulitan," was also coined in the 1980s; it was never referred to as "Kulitan" until only within the last 40 or so years.
Please let me know how you want to proceed, because I do believe my edits to be accurate and objectively true.
Please would you kindly consider blocking the above user. Their user contributions page is here. The problem is that this editor makes long edits which may or may not contain valid information, and is often off-topic. It is difficult to assess content because the use of English language is poor enough to be very confusing. It doesn't help that this editor often does not support the long edits with sufficient citations. This editor has recently written a very long explanation of editorial intention on their talkpage, but it was mostly incomprehensible. I replied briefly that short edits and clear English would improve things, but this editor just deleted it. I honestly don't think that it would be possible to help this editor to make useful edits in the short term, because they don't appear to understand what the problem is. I have tried reverting their edits, but they just undo my revert and do another long edit, mostly in incomprehensible English. This is a sad situation - this editor appears to be genuinely well-intentioned, but has been making some very useful articles useless to the public. Storye book (talk) 08:15, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Proposal to move the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Pakistan from semi-protected to extended-confirmed. Currently there are multiple edits on a daily basis with poor sources and redundant information. Newer editors unfamiliar with popflock.com resource seem to edit it as they please with no regard to proper format or respect for what the previous editors have done. This is specially the case with editing the number of overview cases and adding information haywire as it is made available on media without any sources or unreliable ones. I can barely keep up. -- Shawnqual (talk) 18:55, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

RE: Derby Pie - Requesting Citations for article corrections Asking for citations? No citations available. The Derby Pie was created in my grandmother's kitchen! The two women were friends and often 'cooked up' ideas together. In this particular case, what eventually came to be known as Derby Pie was a mutual creation and NOT some idle kitchen musings of the restaurant/bakery's mother and/or father. The family waited until after my grandmother's passing before filing for a patent. But there is no one alive today who had anything to do with the creation of the pie and the mythology surrounding it is absolutely wrong. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:42, 21 March 2020 (UTC)

Greetings and my Salaams. This is a checkuser request to you for User:Authordom (old ID - User:Kutyava). I have been editing popflock.com resource since 2012 and never have made this kind of request or even a minor complaint to any other popflock.com resource administrators against anyone in my 7 years history of editing. Since you are an administrator, you can verify this from my popflock.com resource records and history. But this person has pushed me over the edge. Seems to me - he is systematically and cleverly targeting all Islamic religious groups or sects other than his own religious group in South India, headed by Kanthapuram A. P. Aboobacker Musliyar. From all his Deletion Nominations both on AfD India and AfD Pakistan within last couple months, you can see his pattern of nominations and draw your conclusions. Personally I have never retaliated against him and have never nominated even a SINGLE Wiki article for deletion - religious or non-religious....period! So you can also verify this that I have not provoked him. For example, please just pick up Maulana Asad Madani's nomination by him which resulted as ('Result:Keep') on 12 March 2020. *Asad Madani Ngrewal1 (talk) 01:29, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Materialscientist, we've had three IPs from 103.105.2x.x[x] vandalize the Strictly Come Dancing article over the past nine days, adding an 18th season and competitors half a year before they're known (and with similar names in each edit): first March 14, then March 21, and finally today. The individual IP addresses have only been used once thus far, for editing the Strictly article.
Is there any chance you can do some sort of a range block to stop this editor? Thanks for whatever you feel is appropriate to do. If it's too soon to block, but one or two more will be sufficient, please let me know, and I'll be happy to keep you informed. BlueMoonset (talk) 20:14, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi. Just a heads-up. Based on the comments at User_talk:Nick_Falcão you've already warned this new editor, more than once. The pattern of failing to provide citations is continuing, as well as making claims not supported by the articles he has cited. I just tried to explain to him one more time in Portuguese, to see if that helps, but have a feeling that he may not stop. As these are all articles dealing with venomous animals, I think it especially important to be wary of poorly-sourced edits; it might be worth checking in on him in a few days and see whether he has ignored the most recent warnings, and step in if you agree. Thanks, Dyanega (talk) 23:06, 23 March 2020 (UTC)
