Andover High School[edit]

Why are you undoing an edit that has a clearly attributable source from the school's own webpage?Jakebed (talk) 00:40, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jakebed:See the answer already given you at User talk:John from Idegon. The school's own Web page is not a secondary source for information about the school or its alumni. And if you call any other editor a "dillhole" again I will see to it that you are blocked from editing. General Ization Talk 00:55, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

That's big of you. But, if you were referring to John from Idegon's comment, it was in reference to a completely different page. So, maybe get your facts straight.Jakebed (talk) 00:59, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jakebed: Doesn't matter which page it was in reference to; the Wikipedia policy is the same. Maybe learn about policies here before you edit here, and certainly before you insult other editors. The warning stands. General Ization Talk 01:04, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

But since you're really uptight about it, how about I add an article from the Lansing State Journal? Jakebed (talk) 01:01, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm only going to warn you once more about civility. Read the policy. If the source complies with policy, then it does. If it doesn't it doesn't. You don't need me to vet your sources. General Ization Talk 01:07, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
@Jakebed: Please dial back the righteous indignation. The LSJ article is what you should have used in your first edit on the subject. Then you wouldn't have had to go to all the trouble of insulting people [1]. Acroterion (talk) 01:07, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Star Wars[edit]

My edit is not vandalism. The wording felt usual, sorry. Thanos2556 (talk) 04:22, 30 August 2019 (UTC)

Reply for removing the link from the phrase: " Hill tribe tourism and trekking " in the Vikipedia term "Chiang Mai" with the reason: "Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia"[edit]

Dear General Ization,

This is a reply for Reply for removing the link I have added to the phrase: " Hill tribe tourism and trekking " in the Vikipedia's article for the term "Chiang Mai", from the reason: "Please do not add inappropriate external links to Wikipedia"

My link is not for advertising or promotion at all. It is a story very relevant to the phrase: " Hill tribe tourism and trekking " in Vikipedia's article for the term "Chiang Mai". It is very infomartive for poeple who are interested to visit the hill tribe in Chiang Mai district, hence it had a lot of added value for the phrase " Hill tribe tourism and trekking ". Could we please add the link back? Thank you Royi Avr (talk) 10:03, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

No. See instructions on your Talk page. General Ization Talk 00:48, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Editors using the mobile website on Wikipedia can opt-in to new advanced features via your settings page. This will give access to more interface links, special pages, and tools.
  • The advanced version of the edit review pages (recent changes, watchlist, and related changes) now includes two new filters. These filters are for "All contents" and "All discussions". They will filter the view to just those namespaces.

When "It" is a name, as here, not a preposition, the possessive form is "It's", not "Its"[edit]

Nowhere in the novel did "IT" become ITs name. It was ALWAYS a descriptor, an adjective. Even if it had. ITS/ITs is still the correct possessive form. Do some research and get a clue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GJIMMY11811 (talkcontribs) 00:47, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

@GJIMMY11811: Not going to debate this with you, as it has already been thoroughly debated and consensus established (see the article's Talk page). The change, if made again, will be reverted again, and if you persist you will be blocked from editing. General Ization Talk 00:50, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Carrollton Bus Collision explanation[edit]

If you will please look at the official NTSB report[1] on page 15, you will see that a 1977 Cadillac Sedan deVille is mentioned in the accident. If we have the 1977 Ford B700/Superior mentioned and the Toyota Pickup (year not mentioned, 1987 btw), why not have the Cadillac mentioned on the page instead of "passenger car" and the car is not even listed on the page, but it was in the accident as an innocent victim (and I was just making the page accurate since I read the report a few days ago)

Just my $.02

TVSRR (talk) 21:26, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

@TVSRR: The issue is not that you mention the Cadillac de Ville, but that you didn't mention it. You linked the words passenger car to the article Cadillac de Ville series. As I explained in my edit summary, this is what we call an Easter egg — the reader who clicks on the link (most likely not a native speaker of English, because who doesn't intuitively know what those two words mean?) will most likely be very surprised to end up at that article. If you want to inform the reader that the car was a Cadillac de Ville, use those words, don't hide them behind a link that one would not reasonably expect to link there (and that should lead to the disambiguation page Passenger car or the article Car, if anywhere).
