Incorrect claim of external link to self-published book[edit]

Hi! In one of your edits to Caterina Sforza, you removed a link to http://www.kleio.org/en/books/caterina_symbols/, with an edit summary of "emoved external link, as it was a direct link to sell a self published book." However, that was inaccurate & I reverted it. The link itself cites a symposium program, Caterina Sforza – 500° Anniversario Della Morte (28 Maggio 1509), pag. 77 - 85, Atti del Convegno di studi e della Tavola rotonda internationale, Forlì, 16 maggio 2009, a cura di Silvia Arfelli, Gilberto Giorgetti. You can view the bibliographic record for this at http://scoprirete.bibliotecheromagna.it/SebinaOpac/.do?idopac=RAV1752121, then choosing the Dettagli tab.

Giulia de.’Medici[edit]

You removed cited material. I oppose your removal of that material from the article. It came from an article that was published in a journal. The woman has also been interviewed by various news organizations. Bookworm857158367 (talk) 00:20, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Juliette Benzoni Comment[edit]

Great job on editing this article! I agree with your observations regarding the Press Section, and so noted on Laramie's TP. I removed the section and the fan site tag. and the copy edit tag. Do you think the article really needs a tag for additional references? It looks good as is, IMO. Thanks, Tribe of Tiger Let's Purrfect! 23:10, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Curdle,

actually I would have loved to send you a Barnstar for your friendliness and helpfulness. I have not seen one here. But this little Barnstar is just perfect for all you do for that article (and what Tiger does) I am sure its going to be an excellent job at the end. Once more, thanks so much for your kindness and time, new Wikipedia Users who come to read it, will be thrilled. Laramie1960 (talk) 14:19, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Somaratne Dissanayake, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Saroja (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.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:07, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Curdle, you have added a dead ref to the above article. Please remove it. Also you sign your name at the end of the text you enter, using ~~~~ Thanks for updating the article. scope_creep (talk) 15:27, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Sorry I thought you added that dead ref in. I'll take it out. scope_creep (talk) 15:29, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Referencing[edit]

Posted Content added & reference correctly & have had the same couple of people deleting my information consistently. Then have had contributors who apparently have been around awhile, thankfully, correct what these people continually delete & basically put back what I started with. I just started doing this the past few months so I admit I'm still learning but don't know how to stop these people from messing my information fairly regularly. At this point, everyone is confusing me. What are rules regarding people changing information that is validated in references? Thank You!(2PacKidada (talk) 07:53, 13 July 2018 (UTC))

Curdle-I'm not sure if this is how to reply to your response to my initial discussion but thank you very much for your information. I appreciate you helping me out with my input. Hopefully you've received this. Thank You! (2PacKidada (talk) 02:54, 14 July 2018 (UTC))

Manjari fadnis[edit]

you removed promotional language from the article Manjari fadnis but not the template that lies over it creating page issues , Please have a recheck for fresh edits , also any such wording exist in context of her relevant or successful films and not the subject itself Crispgatoglitz (talk) 20:21, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for doing some checking into Win This Record. After reading the response at the Teahouse I've decided not to do any more on this album. While I understand the reason behind this subject I don't agree with it. My feeling is any artist should/could have all of their albums available as articles here at WP. I think this is especially valid if said album is mentioned in the article for a particular artist. I've seen many other articles of the same quality as the two I mentioned in my original question and get that their existence does not provide a mandate - or template - to be followed as policy. No worries. It's not a "battle" I want to fight. Again, thank you for the time you spent looking into the matter. I sincerely appreciate your effort! THX1136 (talk) 00:27, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Editing[edit]

you cannot just edit out references to someones page just because you dont like the content. this would also be a breach of wiki policy. do you have a vested interest... are you employed by someone to do this? I have reported you to wiki — Preceding unsigned comment added by Majikalex32 (talkcontribs) 07:14, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for clearing that up. How about you add the references to her recent personal life how she was arrested, charged and convicted for drunk driving in November 2017, and how she was once again arrested, charged and convicted in early 2018 for assault, assault police resist arrest and disorderly conduct. And whilst you at it, delete the reference to her receiving $250,000 settlement from James Packer because her saying this in a media report doesn’t necessarily make it truth. Instead of being a sugary feel good story that barely represents her life filled with unicorns and fairy dust You seem to like to be thorough. Looking forward to reading these updates to her page. It’s relevent information I’m sure you can find good sources to reference.

Sorry, but who cares? This is a tidbit from an entertainment page. Drmies (talk) 15:31, 27 September 2018 (UTC) Who cares about Bill Cosby going to jail? Who cares about Phil spectre arrested for murder? What a cop out. This is meant to be a discussion about accurately and fairly editing this page and posting relevent and up to date information about a persons life. Who cares if she worked in health care who cares if she converted to Judaism? Tell the whole story not just half of it. I have given you opportunity to edit this page as you profess to being a wiki dungeon master level 37.

...and what about the reference to her eating disorder. Surely Woman’s Day isn’t a reputable source either. She does do most of her interviews in tabloid mags. I notice you haven’t deleted that reference. Just mine. What’s with the bias?

Living in Toorak working in the health care sector. Another reference from the reputable mag Woman’s Day Majikalex32 (talk) 16:55, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

If you continue to show bias when editing Kate Fischer’s wiki bio I will be opening a dispute resolution and voicing my concerns you have a vested interest in her page. I love the way for instance that you add 500+ words to her bio and then sneakily remove the reference to how much she sold the Bondi unit for, and that she spent 22 months in a shelter for homeless women. I will be monitoring her page closely snd if you continue with your dubious behaviour I will escalate the matter. Majikalex32 (talk) 14:30, 16 October 2018 (UTC)


Erase and Forget - thanks[edit]

Thanks for taking a look at this page Curdle. I will check criteria and update/rewrite where necessary and resubmit.

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. Majikalex32 (talk) 13:57, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

I asked you many times to discuss before editing on the talk page. you chose to ignore me so you have left me no choice. I have also reported you for possible conflict of interest. you need to learn that you are not admin or a moderator, you are just an editor and not an authority.

October 2018[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Kate Fischer shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.
Please stop asap Lourdes 18:13, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

RE Edit on Rajneesh[edit]

Thanks, for your reply , Curdle.

I guess if the text is too long, then I could summarise and shorten it down.

I can tell you that, the editor of the article has been a bit of a historian in his own right, with a keen interest in the actual history of Rajneesh , and the history of sannyas.

He has written many articles and always encouraged balanced, debate among all the issues in Osho`s lifetime, including those that were controversial, or that others tried to ignore.

He always wanted everyone to have their say, no matter whether their opinions on Osho or his movement around him was negative or positive, and was a keen advocate of free speech.

He was independant from the official Osho organisation, who were not in favour of some of his articles.

So, he was a well balanced journalist, who was always open to hearing everyones viewpoints.

Therefore, I can tell you he was a reliable source.

Here is the page again http://sannyasnews.org/now/archives/1899

No, Eternity5090, sannyasnews.org is definitely not a reliable source by Wikipedia's standards. It is a self-published source. It does not meet the standards described in Identifying reliable sources or our core content policy of Verifiability. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 21:04, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Daisy Clover rock band[edit]

Hi Curdle! Thank you so much for your assistance! Yes well you're correct, the time line simply doesn't add up does it. My father was the one who was feeding me a lot of the information. As I have mentioned, he was the drummer of the band. Now he may have it wrong, this was 50 years ago and he is almost 70 years old. Perhaps the band was reformed in 1971 not 1970 and from sometime from 1971 to somewhere in the mid 70s Chrissy was in the band. My dad did say she was only 14 when she was with the band, so that would've been 1973. My dad, Nick Kenos and Colin deluca were not in the band at that stage. This can all be amended, that's why it's simply a draft for now. Now as for my sources, I believe that they aren't too dissimilar to the sources/references provided with the Wikipedia article on the band Town Criers, and yet they are uploaded to Wiki?.. Yes I have about half a dozen newspaper/magazine articles from the late 1960s, the only problem is most of them don't specify the dates and which newspaper/magazine. My dad is able to advise the name of the newspaper/magazine but not quite the dates. Do you think that will be a problem? Also, what am I to do with them exactly? Am I to add some of the information from each article to the draft, and then somehow upload it to the reference section? also, wouldn't that be copyright infringement, just like the issue with the photo? I have a couple of private photos of the band which I can safety use. But this is becoming way more difficult than I imagined so I probably wont bother with the photo for now. I just want to see if i can get something approved, something similar to Town Criers article, as they were a similar band of that time. My dad actually has this book https://www.bookdepository.com/Whos-Who-Australian-Rock-Chris-Spencer/9781865038919 and it has a little info about the band. It has an email address which i might email them and see what info or evidence they can help for this Wiki article, what do you think? I have spoken to my dad and he is still in contact with Greg Hunt, but he apparently he isn't well and isn't able to talk properly. Apparently he can still sing the song 'Tell Me' some how! LOL.. My dad is going to contact him and he's wife and see what information they can assist with. See if we can clarify the time line of when the band actually ended. If or when this is actually approved, are you able to explain to be the exact process? I'm not sure how all this works... Thanks again for all your assistance on this matter!:)Thegman81 (talk) 23:28, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
