Information.svg We like and strongly encourage helpful changes to Wikipedia, but an article you created was directly copied and pasted from the main English Wikipedia. Please do not do that. Such articles are usually too complex. They need to be simplified before or immediately after being added to the Simple English Wikipedia. In addition, be sure to include attribution on the article's talk page. Thank you. Additionally, since you're currently blocked on at least one other project, you may be subject to the ONESTRIKE rule on this project. Operator873talkconnect 15:56, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. I noticed that you recently made a new article or made changes to one, for example "Martin Garrix", by adding things copied from a book, magazine, newspaper or another website without the permission of the copyright holder. Many sources, including websites found on the Internet, are copyrighted. I'm afraid Wikipedia cannot accept any things copied from these sources as it can get Wikipedia into serious legal trouble. The article or changes have been or will soon be deleted. Next time, please look up sources to find out information for articles and explain it in your own words, and don't copy sentences or images from them. Thank you. You can't copy and paste information from other sources into Wikipedia. You must write the information yourself. Operator873talkconnect 16:00, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Musical groups[change source]

When you have an article like The New Barbarians (band) that is in a category like Category:Rock bands, it does not need to also be in Category:Musical groups. That is because the rock bands category is already under musical groups. For more information on this, see Wikipedia:Categories#Choosing the correct category. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:50, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

Additional note: the kind of overcategorization I mentioned above applies to other kinds of categories, too. For example, you had the following categories on Martin Garrix: Dutch people, Dutch musicians, and Musicians. The Dutch people and Musicians categories aren't needed because the article is already in the Dutch musicians categories. Please pay attention to this when you create articles. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:30, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
