Biases[edit]

I have outlined several of my political & personal preferences above. Please take them into account when reviewing any edits i have made for biases.

Notability[edit]

I believe that the demand that Everything covered on Wikipedia must be notable is misguided. Here are the comments I made regarding Darkmoon Ritual, but they apply elsewhere too. Thanks.NHCLS (talk) 15:22, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

  • The Wikipedia:Notability (music) page says "Please note that the failure to meet any of these criteria does not mean an article must be deleted; conversely, meeting any of these criteria does not mean that an article must be kept." In this case, yes, the group may not be that notable, however, Wikipedia appears not to have any other coverage of this group, and, it is my belief that a person should be able to research anything & everything on Wikipedia, including this group. Also, please note that "Determining notability does not necessarily depend on things such as fame, importance, or popularity—although those may enhance the acceptability of a subject that meets the guidelines explained below."[1]

As well, "If an article fails to cite sufficient sources to demonstrate the notability of its subject, look for sources yourself, or:

  1. Ask the article's creator or an expert on the subject for advice on where to look for sources.
  2. Place a tag on the article to alert other editors. If the article is about a specialized field, use the tag with a specific WikiProject to attract editors knowledgeable about that field, who may have access to reliable sources not available online." This would be a better way to proceed than deletion.

Thanks.

Neolithic architecture[edit]

When I started editing Wikipedia, my original intention was to vandalise the Neolithic architecture page. The introduction has since been changed, but I thought I should put it back here: it is a very good example of useless redundancy. So here it is:

Neolithic architecture is the architecture of the Neolithic period. To compare, modern architecture is architecture of the modern period, or, for another example, Medieval architecture is architecture of the Medieval period. Neolithic architecture is most probably a derivative of Paleolithic architecture, architecture of the Paleolithic period. Once again, to compare, Roman architecture, architecture of the Roman period, is highly probably a derivative of Greek architecture, architecture of the Greek period. Both Neolithic architecture and Paleolithic architecture are forms of Ancient architecture, architecture of the ancient period.
