Your recent activity

You are suspected of sock puppetry, which means that someone suspects you of using multiple Wikipedia accounts for prohibited purposes. Please make yourself familiar with the notes for the suspect, then respond to the evidence at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Bender235. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sniffer3282 (talkcontribs) 04:59, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Pfft. Good luck with that. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:04, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
No evidence presented by a new editor with only two edits to his name, one here and one at the SPI report, where no evidence was presented. Is there any question as to who the sockpuppet really is? --AussieLegend () 08:27, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Not surprisingly, the SPI report has been rejected and Sniffer3282 has been blocked as a sock. --AussieLegend () 08:52, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Cyphoidbomb, no, you're not allowed comment in that section. Usually, I move any non-admin comments above, but in your case I left it because I felt bad about picking on you so much. I, of course, know you're a very good editor and an asset to the project, and your responses to my "criticism" were examples of that (very professional). Anyway, the report is now closed, athough I'm afraid we haven't seen the last of his socks. Regards.--Bbb23 (talk) 15:32, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Bbb23 I've moved it! I have pretty thick skin and don't usually mind friendly corrections, but thank you for erring on the side of not picking on me! I appreciate your input and acknowledgments, also. I had to vent a smidge, but I understand also that your job as CheckUser requires that you have a legitimate reason to poke through the technical data, and that you can't do it simply on the assertions of a couple of gnomes. I'll try to be more consistent about being specific. Probably need to keep better offline notes. Face-smile.svg Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:42, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
It wasn't necessary to move it, but thanks. Just for the record, I'm not a CU. I'm a clerk and therefore work with/for the CUs. I also endorse or decline the running of a CU on a particular case.--Bbb23 (talk) 15:45, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Mea culpa! Point noted. Thanks, Bbb. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:54, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

No consensus

Thanks for giving me praise for reverting the edit I made - I realized it would be better to talk to the editor who made it first rather than keeping it. I did so, and the user who made a "decision", Cuchullain, did explain how a consensus was never reached (see his talk page for how he said a consensus never emerged and he jumped to a conclusion). There was exactly half of the voters on the Wonder Pets! talk page for both options (half was supportive, half was opposing), and I do believe that a move review showing how the "decision" made by the user Cuchullain was inconsistent with the spirit and intent of Wikipedia common practice, policies, and guidelines for other pages (All Grown Up!, The Mighty B!, and Yo Gabba Gabba!) have the exclamation marks in the titles. Leave a comment on my move review showing your support, if you can :) Momsandy (talk) 18:41, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Most discussions can be closed after 7 days, so closing a discussion after two weeks as no consensus is appropriate. That wasn't Cuchullain jumping to a conclusion. Note that the number of votes is irrelevant. Consensus is determined on the strength of the arguments. --AussieLegend () 18:52, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

RP

There were positive and mixed reviews, but not so many of them however, and the ones I found don't think are the right sources since they are basically anonymous usernames instead of a full heading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JT904 (talkcontribs) 18:49, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Roger Craig Smith - Batman

But the opening paragraph on Roger Craig Smith's page even mentions that he is the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Arkham Origins AND Arkham Origins Blackgate. What more proof do you need? Wikipedia is a user contributed site the last time I checked. Are there any other sites I could use as sources? Would the game's Wikia page do - http://batman.wikia.com/wiki/Batman_(Batman:_Arkham_Origins). Because despite the sources I gave not being considered "reliable", Roger Craig Smith did provide the voice to the character in question. As I mentioned before, it even says it in the opening paragraph of his Wiki page. Just not in his video games section, that's all. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by THGhost (talkcontribs) 20:53, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Korra table

I apologise for my incorrect boldness, as I had skipped over the Miscellaneous section and read the home media section, believing it be within the series overview info. I now have a better understanding of the MOS, and will attempt to improve the pages with this in mind. - adamstom97 (talk) 03:25, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Adamstom.97 I appreciate your note! No probs. The changes are brand new. We're BFFs. It never happened! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 03:27, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

/* Series 5 (2014) */ Plot Summary

Hope my last and final edit was satisfactory. I will leave any future input to others more experienced than I.

I am new to all this stuff, and I wish you all the best with your excellent site.

The style of writing I will admit was more in tune with seeking to entice viewers to watch a TV episode rather than a factual summary in an online encyclopedia.

Re: Roger Craig Smith - Batman

I've added this as a reference - http://www.joystiq.com/2013/05/20/batman-arkham-origins-stars-roger-craig-smith-as-batman-troy-b/

That is the exact same reference that Smith's Wiki article uses in its opening paragraph. Surely you should have no problems with that source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by THGhost (talkcontribs) 14:38, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

THGhost Nope. I have no problems with that source. Good job. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:15, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Spacing

I'm not trying to get into an edit war. I just double spaced because a few years ago some editor (that was an administrator) decided that he "owned" the article (it was Care Bears) and double spaces were a must. I followed that rule since then, and learned last year in Creative Writing at college that double spaces were supposed to happen after periods. But since this is Wikipedia it doesn't matter, from what I gather. Thanks for posting the link to that article about the spacing by the way. 47.55.234.102 (talk) 18:24, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

I thought this was funny

I'm not asking you to get involved in this but FleetCommand is back, this time on his talk page, as well as List of The Big Bang Theory characters. Another editor has chimed in and apparently took exception to your use of "rude words" in this discussion. I can't believe she actually said "siding with a person who uses one of the seven dirty words is simply inexcusable".[1] You bad person you. --AussieLegend () 10:40, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

New sock?

Morning, I've not been wrong yet but I would put money on this user being a sock aswell. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Karlhard , https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Karlhard User only joined 2-3 weeks ago and yet if you look at his log and the amount of "Notifying author of deletion nomination" That is pretty high for someone just joining.

Bottom enquire: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Jim_Michael&oldid=630053176

Hi Crazyseiko, thanks for the note. Got any idea who they might be a sock of? Or are you just saying that their pattern of behavior in so few edits suggests they've been around for a while, potentially as a different user? Update: Oh yeah, look at all those AfD noms! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:29, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
I dont know who it might be, but as you say the amount of AFD is bit weird and their pattern of behavior does make it look like they've been around for a while. --Crazyseiko (talk) 13:06, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

The Black Dynamite edits.

The edits I made were true. Williams Street is involved on the show. Watch the Season 2 premiere online. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1990Moot (talkcontribs) 13:22, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

1990Moot, the issue isn't truth, the issue is WP:VERIFIABILITY. You keep adding that Williams Street is involved in the production, but you haven't supported that with a source. If you add a [[WP:RS|reliable source, the matter is over. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:07, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

List of The Walking Dead (TV series) characters

Thank you helping with the "Gareth/Chris" stuff on List of The Walking Dead (TV series) characters. As I stated at the talk page, as long as it is properly sourced, then there should be no problem with WP:SYN. I wonder if the IP who reverted you is also the same one who made these edits ([2], [3] and [4]) as well. The addresses are the not the same, but the approach seems similar. I am assuming good faith, but it might be easier to discuss this with the IP(s) if we knew whether they were all the same person. Do you know of a way to do this without biting anyone in the process? - Marchjuly (talk) 02:55, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

FleetCommand ANI notice

This is just an FYI to let you know that I've had to report FleetCommand at WP:ANI. In the report I've mentioned you calling him out over his edits on my talkpage and Codename Lisa's comments about you. Cheers. --AussieLegend () 14:51, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

OK. I was hoping to smooth things over, so I apologized to him for the sharpness of my tone in that reply. Lisa apparently believes that I "gravely insulted" another user, which I find silly since the sharpness of my reply was directed at Fleet's inappropriate comments, not at him as a person. Lisa tried to explain this grave insult assessment, but I couldn't follow her train of thought, so I abandoned the convo. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:57, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
I thought it was just me. In the past I've never really had a problem with Lisa at Windows XP but her involvement here has been "peculiar" at best. Her explanations don't make sense. She seems to be acting more like FleetCommand's mother. I don't know what's going on with those two. --AussieLegend () 16:04, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Her original comment is insulting toward us both, so I'm not sure how she retains moral superiority. You're an idiot because you "sided with" the f-word guy. I'm an idiot because I'm the f-word guy and as such I have nothing to contribute. I don't even know what she means by "sided with". Anyhow... Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:14, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
It is very easy to get Lisa off your case. He/She isn't "peculiar" or Fleet Command's mother. She is traditional. You can't set her off even if you called her "Codename M****rf***ing Lisa; but defending or justifying it is probably a deadly sin or something. Just say "I apologize". She'll probably say "no prob" or makes you retract. Or maybe says something biblical that stings. But she forgets and leaves you and AussieLegend to deal with The Commander of His Majesty's Fleet however you wish. AussieLegend's case is a bit harder. First, he/she must find out what set off Lisa. (But Aussie can ask her directly, say in an email. You know... the value of true repentance is not marred by what brought about the guidance to the path of salvation... Or something to that effect. Anyway, you can't make her madder. Traditionals don't have that state.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.57.62.63 (talk) 08:27, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Ha! Interesting insight. I appreciate the note, mysterious IP. Face-smile.svg I have nothing to apologize to her for, since I committed no wrong against her or Fleet. Contrarily, she's insulted me at least twice and she's repeatedly insulted Aussie. The good news is that I have a thick skin, and I'm immune to bible quotes. Thanks for the note! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:28, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Of course, you are more than welcome to do as you wish. But if I were you, I wouldn't think of it as an apology; just a matter of divide and conquer. (You did it once with Fleet, didn't you?) If you say she insulted you, I have no cause to doubt you. But, it is strange; uncharacteristic of her. Traditionals don't do that. And while we are at it, I tried to guide Aussie by helping him consolidate his sentences. He just took offense instead. So, I guess you guys must mind friendly fire a bit.
I'm not mysterious. I have an account here. You even know me – I think. I just don't log in, for the obvious reason. And since I am in another country right now, I am not giving away my true IP; just a dynamic IP, whose last two digits changes every now and then. This was my last message to you two; I'm departing tomorrow. 86.57.53.155 (talk) 19:06, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I didn't take offence, I just disagree with you about your interpretation of how to use "completely". --AussieLegend () 22:31, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Mysterious Persian IP, I don't even know what such a proposed apology would look like. "Dear Lisa, sorry you incorrectly accused me of grossly insulting someone who unambiguously insulted AussieLegend, and sorry that you subsequently insulted me." The suggestion that I should kowtow for the sake of kowtowing seems a little bit dick suck-y to me. Anyhow, this shit happened weeks ago. Not interested. Side note: If Lisa finds out you "sided" with me, a known potty-mouth, you're cooked, so you might want to distance yourself ASAP. That's the problem with "traditionals" I guess.

Hi, since you're also pretty active on the Pirates of the Caribbean film series site, especially for part 5, I thought I'd let you know that I created a draft article for the film, since principal photography will start in a few months, which you can of course feel free to edit.

Rugrats in Paris

Much of the time, unless there is a source that backs it, the BBFC are pretty reliable when it comes to runtimes, both in the UK and the US.

Inappropriate edits response

In regards to Silver Surfer's voice actor in Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., he did not sound like Diedrich Bader as an anonymous contributor says. It was almost Dwight Schultz at first, but then the person was speaking as if they are the late Michael Rye. All I can tell you is that the voice did not sound like one of Diedrich Bader's voice meaning that someone else voice the character. The anonymous contributor has made some inaccurate voice role guessing to the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. page and the Avengers Assemble page where that contributor had suspected that John DiMaggio would voice Thanos where it turned out that Isaac C. Singleton, Jr. voiced him while the link that was left near Maurice LaMarche's page did not have any evidence that he is voicing Ultron. Did I leave anything out? --Rtkat3 (talk) 15:05, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Edit Warring on Ryō Hirohashi

I agree that not everything needs to be cited, but the correct course of action is to add a citation, not delete everything. Don't do that again. You sure as hell know better. --Tarage (talk) 10:22, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Tarage You might wish to re-evaluate your admonishment, both in substance and tone, as I did not "delete everything", and I shouldn't be admonished as if I did. The user submitted unsourced content. We cannot base the majority of an article on primary sources per WP:PRIMARY. Their rationale for reverting, "...this was directly from the Japanese Wiki" was insufficient and didn't address the lack of sourcing. I reverted, then explained thoroughly on their talk page. What they did after that was off my radar and is entirely on them. I didn't delete the content, and I didn't instruct the other user to delete the remaining unsourced content. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 15:36, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, looking at it again, it does appear the other editor is the one who deleted everything. I apologize. However, there are numerous unsourced roles on that page, and on every page. Not every role needs a direct citation, otherwise half the page would be citations. The point is, it belonged, even more so now that I've cited it. I'm asking everyone to leave it alone. --Tarage (talk) 03:17, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

LG Williams

just created the article's deletion discussion page, sorry for the delay.- Baronosuna (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 20:52, 29 October 2014 (UTC)


Dear Cyphoidbomb, clearly you should be not taken in by this repeated attempt at this latest attempt at vandalism.
Baronosuna is a sole purpose Vandal and Sockpuppet. In fact, the new and sole purpose user's name itself points directly to the ruse: "Baron Osuna" is the artist's friend and gallerist, Baron Osuna -- see Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/baron.osuna. Obviously, a gallerist would not delete information from a friend and associate; only someone with a vendetta would create such a blatant ruse.
Moreover, the fraudulent use of a living persons name in Wikipedia, unbeknownst to them and without their consent and authorization, should not go unpunished.
This page is under constant and repeated attempts at vandalism. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this vandal and how we can remove deletion from this page. --Xxxartxxx (talk) 16:00, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Dear Cyphoidbomb, thank you for your assistance with LG Williams. Now that the sole-page vandal Baronosuna account has been blocked, can I remove the vandalism / damage caused by Baronosuna? And, can we protect the page from further repeated abuse? --Xxxartxxx (talk) 17:37, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Made-Up Production Codes

Sorry for that. I thought that the airing order of episodes corresponds with it being an "A" segment or a "B" segment. Thank you for the advice for overviews, too. Dcbanners (talk) 20:05, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Dcbanners No probs. We're good. Thanks for adjusting. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:07, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

The reason that I deleted a reference is because I don't need a reference for an episode airing when it is clearly on my tv. I have edited over 500+ television shows and absolutely NONE use references with episodes airs, because it is specifically for when the episode airs. So, unless you can learn how people edit their pages, you can quit having an attitude. You clearly have not edited anything on here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MattNichols47 (talkcontribs) 04:40, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Can I still edit the cast list as long as I do not add new cast members? I don't understand.Batman1601 (talk) 21:12, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Batman1601 I removed the cast section. If an article has a character list or a List of characters article, we don't need a cast list because that is redundant. Wikipedia is also not an indiscriminate list, and we don't need to list every voice actor or role under the sun. We are not a replacement for IMDb. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:17, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Question

Why do the Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Omniverse pages get cast lists if they already have character lists.Batman1601 (talk) 03:37, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Batman1601 You're asking me to explain why articles that do not conform to MOS:TV do not conform to MOS:TV. That's like asking why there are drunk drivers if drunk driving is illegal. The simple answer is that there are numerous users who either do not know the guidelines, or who don't know there are guidelines, or who know there are guidelines, but don't care, and instead are intent to disrupt articles with their personal visions for various articles. It's all a pointless exercise in speculation. What we care about is that TV articles conform to the Manual of Style for Television. As for your other questions, I haven't yet figured out the best approach to fixing those articles. Patience. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:33, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Your Vietnamese friend

Hi, I've blocked 113.178.48.0/21 and 113.190.128.0/18, each for a year. That seems to catch a significant chunk of the IPs on your list. Have any of the others edited recently? If not, they're probably best left, but feel free to let me know if they crop up again. If you get two or three IPs in the same block, it's quite easy to calculate a rangeblock (but the more the merrier, because it might be necessary to split a big range into to two small ones as in this case—the software won't allow massive rangeblocks to prevent admins accidentally blocking entire countries!). Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:16, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Hey, that's awesome, HJ Mitchell! Thanks for that. I believe 123.16.135.166 edited in the last few days, so if you can do anything about those ranges, that'd be awesome! Thanks again, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:21, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
That's quite a big range, 123.16.0.0/16, but it doesn't seem to be populated by anyone else so I've blocked it for a year as well. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:30, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Nice! I'm coming to you for all my IP blocking needs in the future! Face-smile.svg Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:43, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Happy to help. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:03, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi HJ Mitchell could I bug you to take a look at this new Vietnam IP? 14.162.198.40. Still seems to be editing obscure Disney articles. Here they modify an embedded note without actually taking heed of the "must be sourced" nature of the note. Also here they inexplicably add new months into a template and @Tokyogirl79:'s edit. They also still add unsourced gibberish, for example here. These edits are consistent with other edits from the Vietnam IPs, for example here by 14.162.204.238 and this edit by 113.190.221.190. Any rangeblock magic you can perform would be awesome. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:19, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Addendum: I'm starting to see weird edits coming out of Canada now, for example IP 132.219.129.149 and 173.179.9.201. I'm not sure if they're related to the Vietnam vandalism yet, though. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:17, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Right, a kind person has pointed me to an alternative range calculator that isn't hosted on the unreliable labs (you'd think with all the money in the movement somebody would be able to keep a few tools up; I don't begrudge the things the WMF does, but the lack of tech support for established editors, and especially admins, does get on my nerves). Thus, I've blocked 14.162.192.0/20, which will deal with the two 142.162... IPs (and any others in that range). One of the Canadian IPs is registered to university, so I've blocked it until January. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 23:39, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
You're killing it, HJ! Thanks again, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 23:42, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
A thought occurs: we ought to document this somewhere, so that other admins know what's going on if they wonder why I'm rangeblocking half of Vietnam and so that other editors know how to deal with this person if they encounter them. It also means I don't have to go rummaging through the archives to find the ranges if the blocks need renewing in a year's time. Would you be up for creating a page in your userspace that documents the IPs you know of and the pattern of their edits, and maybe any particular favourite articles? I'll add in the ranges I've blocked and I might link to it in the block log if I make any more blocks. Best, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:14, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
Sure! It may take a little while, but I can put that together. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:40, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Hey HJ Mitchell, I've got the framework up here. I can't do anything about the articles yet, since the edit summary search feature isn't working (grumble grumble) and I tagged most of my reversions with "Vietnam IP". Will check to see if the tool is working later. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:18, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Twenty:20 (film)

Hey, you had made a serious mistake when reverting an edit in Twenty:20 (film) of UniGuard. The line you reverted to The film was produced on behalf of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA), as a fundraiser to support actors who are struggling in the Indian film industry. The actors[clarification needed] worked without payment in order to raise funds for the AMMA. Actually "AMMA" is the an association only for Malayalam film actors and it is the 1st type of it in India cinema. They made this film to financially support struggling actors in "Malayalam" film industry not the whole "Indian". I don't know where you are from, but India is a country with many regional "languages" and "culture" in each state and thus seperate film industries, try to understand that. Thanks (UniGuard)27.97.192.102 (talk) 08:12, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Also "all" the actors worked without payment there can be found a lots of citations in the net and it's a commonly knowing fact to all Malayalees. Also you removed the statement Mother of all multi-starrers there is also lots of citations for it. So don't remove anything without knowing any shit. That's why i added the template "experts" on the subject are needed to avoid babysitting editors on that article like you and TRPoD. Still beleive you are a good cotributer to "that" page ? you are wrong you misrepresented it, sometimes the good is not enough, experts on that subject is needed to improve it. Thanks (UniGuard)27.97.192.102 (talk) 08:12, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm not concerned with your opinions. I don't have any regard for disruptive users who resort to sockpuppetry to perpetuate infantile long-term edit wars with other users and who, by way of these childish edit wars, repeatedly insert problematic content into articles. If I suspect you're editing again, I will revert ALL of your edits per WP:RBI, even if you insist they are constructive. Nobody is to be expected to sift through an indeffed user's sockpuppet edits to figure out what is constructive or not. This is a problem you have created yourself.

Broadchurch, series one

Wanna take a look at Broadchurch series one? I used information from the existing article (Broadchurch), improved citations in some places, and greatly expanded it. My immediate concern is: What should be moved over to the Broadchurch article and what should stay in "Series One"? Series One-specific information should not be in the main article, but what do you see moving over to main? I'll work on a Series Two article, but probably not for a while (and not post it to wikispace until we have a potential air date). - Tim1965 (talk) 00:19, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

New names / IP address for previous user

Hi Cyphoidbomb,

I am wondering if we have a return of a previous user wearing different socks (User:86.72.115.135, User:Ratbastardassn) - the IP address certainly seems so. Just thought I'd ping you on this - because it's something that it seems we need to watch out for. There should be some correlations of Ratbastardassn to previous users, because this was a favored topic.--CaroleHenson (talk) 14:38, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Actualy I know who is User:86.72.115.135 ! It happens to be me. I didn't bother login in or signing, that's all (maybe your' right, I was hiding somehow...). I'm just upset to see how far goes this LG Williams hoax on Wikipedia, and I wanted to mock it. Jean-no (talk) 19:53, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
That clears up some of it. Any idea who Ratbastardassn is? or Baronosuna? Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:29, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Nope ! I must confess I didn't read the talk page a lot. Jean-no (talk) 21:13, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Phineas and Ferb articles

Another editor has appeared today. My spidey senses tell me it's a sock SPA created to deliberately change the episode numbering in all of the articles, but it has changed a few other articles before doing so to draw attention away from the obvious. --AussieLegend () 04:02, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

AussieLegend I have asked Dcbanners to consider changing back the numbering as a show of good-faith and to help curtail the bickering since the matter is in dispute and maybe the previous version should be maintained until a consensus for change exists. I'll keep my eye on any shenanigans. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:22, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
WikiEditor2016 has already reverted. Interestingly, as you'll see at the SPI, that account was created 4 minutes after Chasbo123's most recent edit and Chasbo123 hasn't edited since. The ducks are really quacking loudly. Unfortunately there seems to be a backlog at SPI. --AussieLegend () 16:19, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Given Chasbo's early history of inflicting his font choices on everybody, which resulted in him being brought to ANI for what is essentially stubbornness, I would not be surprised that he is socking. Unrelated, please pronounce "Melbourne, Florida" properly, not the way you might instinctively pronounce it. Smile eye.png Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:42, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Just an FYI, I've already left some warnings on WikiEditor2016's talk page, but he just deleted them. The last reversion at Phineas and Ferb (season 4) was a blanket reversion[5] without any consideration of the other edits which were made.[6] That's beyond disruptive. BTW, I don't pronounce Melbourne the way that you might think. I usually call it "Melboring", since that best describes the place. --AussieLegend () 17:55, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Ooh, I shoulda looked at the talk page history. What do you think of my idea that we restore the old data until the RfC closes? I'd like to discourage the vandalism and socking if possible, and that might be a harmless way to do so. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:15, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
That should stop the edit warring, but it will probably also make certain editors think they've "won" something. That's why I asked for page protection. --AussieLegend () 18:21, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't particularly care if they feel that way, but I'll hold off. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:06, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Cartoon Network category

Just to mention that I've suggested renaming the category to "Cartoon Network original programs", per WP:TVINTL, to make it clearer to readers and editors what the category is for.

Hey @McGeddon:, I'll chime in. I think all the various TV network categories need a clear scope, which has been sorely lacking for a long time. The Cartoon Network programs category seemed to be centered on US broadcasts of original content, but I don't get the sense that the comparable categories for Adult Swim, Nickelodeon, and similar have the same scope.

AIV reports

Due to the subject matter, I suspect the user is a young person. I realise that's something you see a lot of in your topic area. If they are new users, it's likely that they are not seeing your edit summaries and have no idea why their additions are being removed. Please try to explain to them on their talk why their edits are unacceptable. Ask them where they got the information. Perhaps they have a source? If they don't, explain to them on their talk page that everything needs sources. I have found that communicating via hand-written notes gets communication going much more readily than using templates. It takes more time, but it's a lot more likely to get us some new users who are actually able to help rather than hinder the article building process. To save time, I even have a small collection of hand-written notes in my user space that I customize for image and copyright related work. -- Diannaa (talk) 01:58, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi @Diannaa:, while you were typing this, I was typing a note on your talk page to the effect of "Might I con you to take another look?" The situation at List of Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu episodes has become problematic as well. Before Danbob there were unsourced future dates well into March 2015 at this article. Danbob adds March 22, 2015 to the series overview here, which implies the series is ending. Source provided in the main article says that new episodes will begin in 2015, not that the series is ending. I removed the unsourced future date. It was restored by a single purpose account here, then by Danbob again here. All unsourced, all unexplained. And though I also removed a litany of other unsourced future episodes, another user restored them and added more unsourced episodes here. There are no Google hits for "return of arcturus" lego for example and Rise of the Anacondrai appears to be straight-up fanfiction. I'm just about out of reverts, so that puts me in a disadvantageous position, but I think it's clear that there is disruptive editing occurring. And, to your initial point, I did attempt to communicate with Danbob via a personalized note on his talk page. So I'm not sure what else I should be doing, as sparking another discussion at this stage would seem pointless, although I did open a discussion on Danbob's page about the improperly sourced series end date. And, while we've been chatting, the user, who has never participated in discussion anywhere, has again added the live-action claim at Gumball here. So, I still think I need some sort of admin intervention, even if that means more talk page business. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:46, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't know what to tell you. The whole article is unsourced, so it makes it difficult at this point to demand sources, with a threat of a block. -- Diannaa (talk) 03:30, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
I think it's time for plan B, an SPI report. Not for forum shopping, but because there appears to be a campaign to disrupt this article, what with yet another SPA appearing here [7]. Anyhow, I hope I didn't sound pissy, though I am a little frustrated. :) Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:02, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry about it; i can understand your frustration. I will put some page protection on the page for a week to help things cool down. Regards, -- Diannaa (talk) 20:42, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Cyphoidbomb. Like Dennis and HJ Mitchell I was on a Wikibreak at the time. It’s also interesting to note that there is a marked absence of the other regular RfA stalwarts on your previous RfA. Not all Bureaucrats leave a closing summary, but in this case Acalamari did and it is important to take note of it. I think I would probably have opposed but with a mention that if you were to run in another 12 months you could be almost sure of my support. Is there any reason why you can't wait another four months? --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 01:06, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi @Kudpung:, there's no specific reason why I couldn't wait, but there's also no specific reason to be expected to wait. I didn't have any particular yearning to re-apply except that Secret suggested it and some other respected editors seemed supportive. I'm not sure how waiting another arbitrary time span would inspire more confidence--I seem to recall people telling me to come back in 6 months, but maybe I imagined that. The main issues raised against me were hasty AfDs, which I have been very cautious about ever since, and it has been 8 months since the first run. I knew during the AfD that I would have to adjust, and was immediately willing to do so, except the opposers didn't have faith in me. If you think that waiting 4 more months is symbolic and important, I suppose I'll consider that too along with whether or not I care to participate. People keep talking about how AfD RfA is a flawed system, and I think that some of these arbitrary expectations might contribute to that impression. I was initially told that Adminship isn't such a big deal, but people sure make it out to be. From my perspective adminship is a matter of trust, and I have done nothing but work for the integrity of Wikipedia's accuracy, work well with others, suppress vandalism, keep a level head, maintain a thick skin, and I've never abused the tools at my disposal, be it rollback, Twinkle or AWB. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:55, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
In five months I would most likely support, but I cannot say how I would vote if you ran any sooner. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:43, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I suppose I will take that under advisement, @Kudpung:, thanks. Excluding the users who have written above, I was encouraged by at least five editors to try again in six months or so: [8][9][10][11][12]. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 06:18, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I'm not sure what good an arbitrary period of time would do. Obviously, there needs to be a grace period between RfAs, but three months is usually considered the minimum (for comparison, my second RfA was pretty much four months to the day after I completely cocked up my first one; oh how hilarious that seems now there's a few years' worth of water under the bridge—it didn't seem hilarious at the time!). As I say, I've lost confidence in my ability to spot good candidates, and your last one seemed to revolve around deletion and I don't do much of that, so all I'll say is go when you're comfortable (but don't do it just because people are pressuring you to—do it for your own reasons, when you're ready). You'll have my support, and I'd even consider writing a co-nomination statement, but an RfA is Wikipedia's ultimate display of masochism.

Dc's Talk page

I read your comment and I agree with all of your points. But as much as I am in favor of simple and straightforward formatting of any article, I can't abide by the deliberate removal of sources for unique information or the misuse of a template with established fields.

When I worked at Hanna Barbera and was part of starting the database archival project to track the use of characters, visual props, and backgrounds, we were amazed at how easy it was for information to go missing because no one kept originals. They had just re-used and edited the material over and over, often to the point where it was un-usable and had to be recreated which equates to "time and money" in the production world. Something that the show accountants don't like.

Somebody saying JUST WATCH THE EPISODE is fine while its new and on the air, but months or years from now it may not be possible. If just the right hard drive or server fails, even the episodes posted online can be lost, its just that easy. This is a long term project and things like this need to be taken into consideration.

I'm not saying that you or anyone else does not have valid points in this matter, but challenging an Editor on the INCLUSION of sources is mind-boggling to me given the how Wikipedia operates. As someone who aspires to be an Admin, I would think that you would agree on this point. If there is a distinction that I am missing, please enlighten me. I am always eager to understand differing points of view or at least the logic behind them. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 19:30, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Just happened to see this. Would the IMDb not be the first port of call? Or is their date of birth also suspect? Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 09:43, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi Rui, IMDb is not generally considered a reliable source since it is user generated. (Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Resources, Wikipedia:External_links/Perennial_websites#IMDb etc.) Hi RMS, I won't protest that source, although it does seem a little flimsy, with much of the article written about a cousin who barely remembered her. I was involved in a discussion on the talk page a while back and there was a general rejection of a source because some editors felt that the article derived Kelly's DOB from IMDb. So, steel yourself for some discussion. :) Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:11, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Characters in Malcolm in the Middle.

Hi

I edited this page yesterday, though not as a registered user. I see that the entry I made has been deleted, so I have created an account and re-edited it though not re-referenced IMdb. I have re-entered the fact that the family name is disclosed in the sleeve notes of series five, so I would ask it not be deleted this time. Is there somewhere I can upload an image of the sleeve notes to confirm that what I am saying is true? I was surprised to see 'Wilkerson' there in black and white, but it's there!

I understand that anything promotional is not allowed but I only added the 4 fabrics of our FR range and now I don't see anything.

Can I say that Portwest has a FR range containing 4 key fabrics Araflame, Modaflame, Bizweld and Bizflame?

I really don't understand why everything we add is being deleted.

I want to add more information about our different product lines, am I just allowed to mention them?

Please advise with a sample of text that is appropriate. I am not trying to bend the rules I am merely trying to work within them

Sincerely Maggie 62.77.167.162 (talk) 16:14, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Maggie, I've attempted to explain to you numerous times why the content is problematic, both on your talk page, the article's talk page and in my edit summaries. Assuming for a moment that the company even meets Wikipedia's notability requirements for corporations, (which it may or may not) the content you kept adding is overly promotional in tone, and I've given examples of promotional statements like "unrivaled customer service" that are not suitable here. The purpose of articles are to explain generally, to laypeople what the company does, and the bulk of this information should be coming from reliable secondary sources that are independent of the subject, what that means is that the bulk of the information should be coming from news articles, magazine articles, television news reports, books, and not from the company's website, press releases, or sales brochures. Which isn't to say that we can't include some information from these sources, but we can't base the bulk of the article on these sources, especially if the content leans toward promotion. The article already contains information in prose about the various brands. I don't particularly see the need to add content about the textile ratios, [14] since there is no context to explain the significance of these blends to the layperson. And then aesthetically, we don't need unique sub-headers for each brand when we only have one sentence describing each brand. Not sure if my response will help, but I hope it does. Also, please note that whomever is editing as Portwest110 has created an account in violation of Wikipedia's username policy. No biggy, but it will likely be blocked.

Sourced prose for Ollie

I read that Robert Queen was conceived via Shado raping Oliver while he was delirious with fever and thinking Shado was Black Canary though, in issue 11 of volume 2 of Green Arrow. Not sure what more is needed, like if you want to see the page itself or something. --Ranze (talk) 04:57, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Ranze Hi there, the text at WP:CAT is pretty clear: "It should be clear from verifiable information in the article why it was placed in each of its categories." If there is no interest in adding sourced content about the character being a rape victim, I don't think the cat warrants inclusion per the categorization guideline. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:03, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

The layout for the Green Arrow article is pretty strange in regard to this. If we search for Robert, the first mention is of the New 52 reboot taking him and Connor out of continuity as the sons of Ollie. There is brief mention of Connor being introduced as son prior to this but none of Robert, so I would like to add this, along with mention of how he was conceived with Shado. At that point I hope category will be okay. --Ranze (talk) 05:19, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

As long as there is context, you won't hear another peep outta me, Ranze. :) Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:05, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Rescue Heroes (TV series)

Saying that Richmond does not belong in Rocky Canyon's name does not make sense to me, due to the fact that in the article List of NCIS characters, It has Ducky listed as Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard. Is the List of NCIS characters article wrong? It seems that one of the articles must be wrong since, to me, saying Richmond "Rocky" Canyon is the same as saying Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard. Please clarify why this is wrong. Saturn 28 (talk) 23:42, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Saturn 28, I can't speak to the relevance of NCIS to this kids' TV article. The fact that the character was not referred to as Richmond for the bulk of the series (or so I assume), and that the name was a one-off revelation make it seem silly to me that we would refer to him by his full name. However, I also note that the MacGyver character list includes "Angus MacGyver" (we learn his first name in the final episode of the series) so I am willing to yield on this. Happy holidays, and thanks for the note. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 23:48, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

reference

I understand your message. Ill try to find a constant reference as soon as i can But one question, can i create a reference like a blog with the new info with links with footage?

facepalm, forgot to put my name in the message — Preceding unsigned comment added by Loo ninja (talkcontribs) 03:08, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi there, @Loo ninja:, thanks for understanding. It's nothing personal--we just need solid sources, and this article has been plagued with vandalism. You can (obviously) create whatever content you want on the internet, but you cannot use that content as a reference. Although it may be boring to read, WP:RS details this. Basically we want secondary sources, and the sources must have some clear editorial standard, and an expectation of journalistic fact checking. Books, magazines, newspapers, news sites, are what we are looking for, not blogs, Wikis, not even IMDb, TV.com, or Wikipedia itself, since all these sites are user-contributed and have no presumption of accuracy. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 03:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks/ Inquiry

Thanks for the clarification you recently made to my edit. Also I noticed that there was a discrepancy on the spongebob season 2 page in which I discussed it in that pages talk section. How does one edit conflicting data correctly when you have equal amounts of sources giving you different information? Thanks for your help! Regards,StevieB5175 (talk) 04:05, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

StevieB5175 You might want to float the question past WT:TV to get the best range of opinions. Sometimes there's no real great way to deal with discrepancies in airdates, since there's little we can do to assure accuracy. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:11, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Reversion in Khuda-Yana

If you do not know Khuda-Yuna is a cartoon inspired by animes. Though this is not written in the article here is proof that I'm doing right in reversing the removal of the category http://www.thebusinessoffilmdaily.com/mipcom2011/images/D1/3Khuda_Yana_BRB.jpg I just can not understand how you let other articles with this category as Big Hero 6 (film) (can even be set in Japan and to have gained a manga, but the film is not inspired by animes) and Turbo FAST (this cartoon demonstrates not be inspired by anime). — Preceding unsigned comment added by João Pedro Senna (talkcontribs) 18:48, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

João Pedro Senna Thank you for the explanation. In the future, please use an edit summary. Also, category additions don't do much to improve an article if there is no content to support it--it just creates confusion. We need content first, then categories. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:54, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring on PK

Your edit You are using wikilinking to Wikipedia as though it were a reference, which is not appropriate. Add new references to support new claims. made no sense. Please do not edit war. Use the talk page to iron out your differences. --08:09, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

@ Cyphoidbomb - Kindly cease and desist. Wikilink was not given as a reference. Do not revert edits without discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sahirshah (talkcontribs) 07:03, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@ Cyphoidbomb - If a reference is required you can ask for one. This style of editing is counter productive and leads to ill feeling between editors -Sahir 07:15, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

I reject the above rebukes.

  1. There is no "edit warring", @Rsrikanth05:. I made only one reversion. I would expect someone with 44,000 edits to know not to carelessly throw around the term as if there were actually any bad faith on my part. Anybody who has edited Bollywood articles for any length of time knows that there are serious problems with reliable sources, and that editors are paid to inflate and promote certain movies, while deflating and making other movies look bad. The bar for Bollywood movies needs to be raised, and we need more scrutiny of content, not less. You may wish to keep that in mind instead of resorting to absurd "edit warring" accusations. Where was your admonishment for the other user?
  2. I don't need permission to revert, @Sahirshah:. See WP:BRD. Your insistence that I discuss before reverting is meaningless, and not the norm.
  3. Quite to the contrary, this reversion without explanation or discussion, plainly contravenes WP:BRD and normal editing behavior. We don't revert with no explanation, so you should be warning yourself, not me.
  4. There was no reference provided to support the claim "Within two weeks of it's release date this film has made it into it the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time in international markets" Instead, you added a wikilink to another page, which appeared to be an attempt to use Wikipedia to support the claim. Hence my edit summary: "You are using wikilinking to Wikipedia as though it were a reference, which is not appropriate. Add new references to support new claims." Does that clear things up, Rsrikanth05?
  5. It is completely legitimate to remove unsourced, controversial statements. Your admonition, "If a reference is required you can ask for one" is utter nonsense." According to WP:BURDEN, "The burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and is satisfied by providing a citation to a reliable source that directly supports the contribution." If you care enough about the content to add it, you should care enough about the content to support it with references at the time you submit it, instead of getting upset at other editors when they revert your unsourced content, then placing ridiculous demands on them to do all the busy work for you. It's not rocket science: You add a fact, you add a source. Not: you add a fact, you wait until someone reverts your unsourced fact, revert them, post a meaningless warning on their talk page, then finally add a source. The latter is a tremendous waste of time, which actually is "counter productive and leads to ill feeling between editors". Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:55, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
By continually reverting each other, both of you are edit warring. Period. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 17:59, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@Rsrikanth05: Yes, and if I had continually reverted the editor on this matter, I would agree with you. However,b I made ONE REVERSION. Period. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@ Cyphoidbomb. Peace. Had a look at some of your recent edits. See a lot of WP:WikiBullying and a tendency to cite the rule book to support your actions. A little bit of civility goes a long way. Peace again man. May the force be with you :) -Sahir 00:00, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
@Sahir: There was nothing incivil about my reversion. It's a normal part of the BRD process. It's disingenuous to ask for civility while you simultaneously issue a backhanded insult by accusing me of Wiki bullying. You were wrong in this situation and you should be meditating on that, not psychoanalyzing me. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 00:20, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
@Cyphoidbomb:No insult intended and let's not descend to a "who's wrong" debate. This is't a war zone, it's Wikipedia :) Hoped my comments would help you introspect a little. Um!! Aggressive undoing is one of the things on WP:WikiBullying. I used the wrong word earlier. I should have said "a little friendliness goes a long way". Nevertheless, appreciate your efforts in fighting vandalism. We need you on that wall Col. Jessup so that we can sleep under the blanket of freedom you provide :) Peace and cheers -Sahir 10:38, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

TfD comments

Discusssion at xfD is open to all editors and, in many years of project experience, I've found that everyone has something to contribute, even if they don't completely understand the intricacies of proposals. I once had a project that started off with a $20,000 budget but ended ended up costing $750,000. In the process though, it allowed us to shelve another project saving $3.75 million and all because one person said something that at first seemed silly and impractical. Your comments at TfD were not silly or impractical, nor did they make you look like an idiot.[16] You were spot on in everything you said. --AussieLegend () 00:10, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

RfC Phineas and Ferb

I see that you have made an edit to Talk:Phineas and Ferb (season 4) with the edit summary "The RfC has indeed ended and consensus was not on your side" although I cannot see how this is true. My side was to pair like all reliable sources say against split all episodes except for the 30 minute ones and sometimes counting two episodes as one with no sources. user HH (talk) 01:04, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Second half of TMNT Season 3

Cyphoidbomb, I was wondering if you are looking forward to the second half of Season 3 of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when it airs in January. We already know that Hun will debut as the new leader of the Purple Dragons, Mondo Gecko, Muckman, and Joe Eyeball will appear at some point, and that Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko will be mutated into the show's version of Bebop and Rocksteady. During that time, the Turtles will return to Manhattan to fight the Kraang and the Foot Clan. --Rtkat3 (talk) 00:50, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
