Thanks for your edits on List of aircraft losses during the war in Donbas article. I would appreciate if you could help me keeping an eye on that article, because from time to time a Anon IP, previous Banned user Vnkd‎ tend to make disruptve edits.Mr.User200 (talk) 20:05, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Mr.User200: see this. Removed defence-blog (again!), but not too sure about what needs to be done with the rest of the edit. FDW777 (talk) 20:18, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Quote from FOARP - "Roughly 2/3rds of the edits to this map appear to be based on Twitter accounts...of which @Suriyak is the most common". I think it speaks volumes what has been the general attitude of editors regarding his reliability/usage as a territorial changes source when almost 2/3 of all edits were based on him. I also think its not a proper consensus where only three editors were involved in the discussion about the reliability of a Wikipedia source that has been used for more than half a decade by dozens of editors. That editors who are familiar with the source's background, including those who actively updated Wikipedia's Syria or Iraq maps during the years, were not involved in the discussion or were not asked for their opinion, is improper in my opinion, making the presented consensus unbalanced. However, I am not that interested in arguing or edit warring over the issue, so happy editing! EkoGraf (talk) 11:44, 29 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

PS During your revert [1] you also removed my addition regarding the events of March 27th, cited to the Kyiv Post media outlet who in turn was citing the Ukrainian military (not Suriyak). Please be a bit more careful. Thanks! EkoGraf (talk) 11:53, 29 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Apologies, hadn't noticed your other change.
Regarding Suriyak, the small number of participants in the discussion doesn't matter in the slightest considering the nature of the reference. An anonymous Twitter account using unclear methodology is simply not reliable per WP:SPS, which cannot be ignored because a group of editors think it's reliable.

Reynard Sinaga in List of Serial Rapists[edit]

If you find the edit of mine you erased isn't formatted correctly, would you just edit it to better format it to the page instead of wipe it completely? Or at least tell me what you were pointing out so I can go back and do so. ContributingHelperOnTheSide (talk) 07:31, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I never said anything about formatting. My objections are clear to understand, unreferenced and/or incorrect. FDW777 (talk) 07:58, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That was what I meant, my apologies for not wording that well. And for not realizing you didn't erase Sinaga from the list. I didn't look closely enough to see that. Thank you for not erasing Sinaga from the list, that was my biggest concern. ContributingHelperOnTheSide (talk) 08:20, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sinaga's page actually wasn't clear on exactly how many men Sinaga raped, that was my concern in listing several counts of people in the list. ContributingHelperOnTheSide (talk) 08:30, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Michael Martinez[edit]

I think it may now be time to report them, given their latest whataboutism. Slatersteven (talk) 13:24, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll hopefully cobble something together in the next 24 hours. FDW777 (talk) 14:53, 6 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Slatersteven: due to their most recent post on the talk page I'm prepared to hold off for now and see what happens. Obviously if we get more of the same I'll file the request. FDW777 (talk) 14:14, 7 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

IP adding "American" to every company with a tangible connection[edit]

Hi, I came across a weird IP ( that's been doing this to almost every major company in the world, even if blatantly false. Looking at the range (, seems like they have been doing it for much longer, and you have reverted them as "WP:EVASION" as on Spotify and Zoho Corporation. Has this been going on for a long time? Pardon me – but I'm not sure if you're an admin or not, but wouldn't it be wise to just block this range entirely to make it stop? Or would they just return with another IP range.

Thanks for your messsage. I've been tracking this vandal for a while, any help is always appreciated. FDW777 (talk) 19:33, 14 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Flanders campaign.[edit]

It seems like you removed two commanders from the infobox I added. I think that is weird because that they participated isn't really controversial and even on their own wikipages their participatiom is mentioned. I can add a source if you insist but the current sources do the job to DavidDijkgraaf (talk) 22:28, 22 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of city flags in North America, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page San Pedro Sacatepéquez.

Hello, on 9th of January 2021 I made a very disruptive edit to talk page of Antifa article where I essentially attacked you for a response which was a correct response. I don't know how to add a new reply to talk page on the Mobile app, so I am typing here I am very sorry for doing that and my use of abusive words probably wasn't appropriate for Wikipedia, I hope you have a good day BrawlyTheContributor (talk) 19:16, 11 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another Troubles permastub?[edit]

Hi FDW777. You may want to check out the newly-made Mayobridge landmine attack. It looks like yet another non-notable Troubles permastub, made up mainly of irrelevant details of 'background' and 'aftermath', with the classic misuse of '&'. ~Asarlaí 08:32, 15 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

re: Talk:Otoya Yamaguchi

Looking back, you've been involved in numerous edit wars on the article and have been a fervent defender of the paragraph that has caused great controversy to the extent that the article apparently had to be semi-protected. Because you have been involved in this in a matter that is in my opinion unreasonable, I'll be bringing you up in the section regarding a co-editor on the talk page. I don't know how to link sections, so if you ctrl-f "otoya yamaguchi" you should find it.

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. (talk) 18:21, 18 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
