Edits on Tuber's articleEdit

Hey you reverted one of my recent edits. I think I have fixed it now. Can you take a look and let me know if that works? If not, what should I fix? Was the problem all the references cited, or some of them? Thank you!! tsoukali 18:22, 29 November 2020 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tsoukali (talkcontribs)

@Tsoukali: You used (at least) one rather unreliable source for the article (discogs, see the entry for discogs on Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Perennial_sources), which is why the bot reverted. --Dirk Beetstra T C 05:25, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
@Beetstra: Thank you for your response. Hmmm, I'm a little surprised, as discogs was already used as a reference in the original article (see reference no.8 here), hence I thought it was ok to cite another entry from that website. Anyway, I think I fixed it along with some other issues (mainly on the Bio section). If my edits are still on the wrong, I'm happy to stand corrected and welcome further guidance.User:Tsoukali 07:15, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

National Hand Touch Football LeagueEdit

National_Hand_Touch_Football_League: I hope this is acceptable for an article it’s a Hand Touch version of the football game we play in Upstate New York? Demons24 (talk) 17:08, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Demons24, that version, no. The one in Draft-namespace is better, please wait for the review (though you can improve it in the meantime). Dirk Beetstra T C 08:47, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Thank you Demons24 (talk) 10:48, 1 December 2020 (UTC) Is this safe to post on it now just wondering I have been working hard on it Demons24 (talk) 10:57, 1 December 2020 (UTC)

Loretta GoggiEdit

Ok for Discogs link but, why you have removed the other changes that i've added? They are full of precise and correct sources, like "gay icon" part and Versace part and the Maledetta Primavera part...--Melfi1980 (talk) 09:59, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Melfi1980, please see User:XLinkBot/FAQ#REVERTALL. Dirk Beetstra T C 10:20, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Van Halen (Album)Edit

I apologize. I thought that it was important to list the switch on most US Cassettes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:30, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

@ yes, that is important, but referenced to a reliable source, not discogs. --Dirk Beetstra T C 09:08, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

Jim McGovern (politician) for supporting impeaching Donald Trump again.Edit

Hello, I'd like to apologize for making that edit that's on me. When he announced his support for impeaching Trump again for inciting the violent riot that stormed the capitol, I felt like I needed to edit that. I'm sorry. - E.M. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:30, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

@ I reverted the bot, thanks. --Dirk Beetstra T C 09:05, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
