Languages other than English: English is the only language in which I am fluent. Although a user talk page has been created for me in another language, I did not create or request it, only found out about it after the fact, and generally have not contributed to Wikimedia in another language (except for quoting). Unfortunately, while I wish I knew many languages, I don't. Also, I don't generally trust translation services. Please communicate in English and I will do likewise. Thank you very much.

I am not a lawyer.


Proposed change to Consensus for a unified approach to bias categories at Category:Antisemitism[edit]

Due to your involvement in the 2011 CFD that decided on a unified approach to bias categories, you may be interested in a current proposal to change that approach with regard to the Category:Antisemitism. Dlv999 (talk) 15:38, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Done on this page. See the linked-to page for a response and respond there if desired. Nick Levinson (talk) 20:11, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

New word for you to chew over[edit]

"Gynecism" / "Gynecist" has received some media coverage over the past few days. (Please don't apply your dictionary triangulation method to it, however.) AnonMoos (talk) 05:58, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks and it's rather funny (I Googled both), but too trivial either to add to Wikipedia or to dig into for general or feminist interest anytime soon. A glance through Google results leads me to guess it originated or was renewed with a blogger criticizing a candidate. I haven't checked dictionaries and perhaps an online dictionary of neologisms will have them but no other dictionary is likely to carry either form. This kind of invention occurs often and in many fields and most of those forms don't last or are limited to contexts like newspaper headlines or a few writers. Proportionately few neologisms in any field grow to be significant in usage. Thanks again. Nick Levinson (talk) 02:50, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

On "what links here" being overpopulated by template entries[edit]

I am curious. Was there a solution to this problem you raised in Wikipump? I was working on entries for churches in Naples, and some had orphan problems. Now I can't tell if any do because they have all been subsumed into templates. Rococo1700 (talk) 23:32, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

So far, no, and it may be a while, if ever, but the discussion has been continuing. Participate there, if you wish. Nick Levinson (talk) 00:03, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
