All editors on Troubles-related articles are directed to get the advice of neutral parties via means such as outside opinions.
All articles related to The Troubles, defined as: any article that could be reasonably construed as being related to The Troubles, Irish nationalism, and British nationalism in relation to Ireland falls under WP:1RR (one revert per editor per article per 24 hour period). When in doubt, assume it is related.
Clear vandalism of whatever origin may be reverted without restriction. Reverts of edits made by anonymous IP editors that are not vandalism are exempt from 1RR but are subject to the usual rules on edit warring.
Editors who violate this 1RR restriction may be blocked without warning by any uninvolved administrator, even on a first offence.
If you are a new editor, or an editor unfamiliar with the situation, please follow the above guidelines. If you are unsure if your edit is appropriate, discuss it here on this talk page first. You may also wish to review the arbitration case page. When in doubt, don't revert!
Is this really necessary? Didn't I read somewhere that only the most notable names should be kept unless it's a standalone list? SonofSetanta (talk) 17:03, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
Whilst a list is merited, an article such as this will always receive an unmerited amount of republican bias and defence from sympathetic editors. Best thing to do is ensure that what is being claimed by the sources is actually in the sources, as no doubt some manipulation and word-play is in play. Mabuska(talk) 00:20, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
I agree. The article, as it stands, isn't written in a way which gives any dignity to the dead. SonofSetanta (talk) 08:40, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Only negative gunshot results mentioned in list of dead.
In the list of the dead, for those whom the gunshot residue tests turned up negative, it's mentioned. The positive results aren't. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:56, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
126.96.36.199 might give greater detail of the positive results. No British soldier was killed or injured, as far as I can see. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:18, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Notable "Cheifly" because of the Paras did the shooting?
Last line of intro states:
"Bloody Sunday remains among the most significant events in the Troubles of Northern Ireland, chiefly because those who died were shot by the British army rather than paramilitaries, in full view of the public and the press."
Bloody Sunday had one of the highest death tolls of any single action. I don't think it is a "man bites dog" type of significance. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:39, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
According to most sources, William McKinney was not shot while stooping over the body of Gerald McKinney; he was shot at the same time as Quinn, Mahon and Wray in Glenfada Park prior to Gerald McKinney. Gerald McKinney and Gerald Donaghey were both shot in the same location afterwards with some sources stating the shot which hit Donaghey in the abdomen travelled through Gerry McKinney's body. Eamonn McCann's book clearly states William McKinney was shot while fleeing through Glenfada Park and before Gerry McKinney was shot in the same location, as do several online sources. One can be found here (check the text and the imagery indicating positions of wounded and fatalities). One more here.
I was considering adding the above references, plus McCann's book, to an adjustment to the circumstances surrounding William McKinney's death, but thought it more appropriate to place this info. on the talk page 1st.--Kieronoldham (talk) 23:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
