I'm afraid I've had to revert you. I fully believe everything you say, but that's not the point. Wikipedia is not a research journal, it's a record of what other authorities have said. Since the KJV uses Hammelech, we must record that, since it is information that has been widely disseminated, however false you may believe it to be. SamuelTheGhost (talk) 15:13, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Amos Yarkoni[edit]

Hi Bazuz -- I think the edits to the Amos Yarkoni article with respect to his coffin being carried by officers of a higher rank lacks context without the additional facts. It's like saying "It was partially cloudy on the day of the funeral".

The sentence as originally cited provided the facts (his coffin was carried by officers of a higher rank) and provided the context (having the coffin carried by soldiers of a higher rank is against military tradition, and was done as a mark of respect), but is devoid of emotive language ("poignant"). Let me know what you think -- I'd like to change it back to that sentence, so that it conveys the facts surrounding his cortege.

Cheers, AWN2 (talk) 05:04, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi AWN2, Sure, go ahead. I think I messed up something back then and it's good that you came back to fix it :) Bazuz (talk) 05:56, 31 May 2011 (UTC)
No problems -- will do it now :) Thanks for getting back to me! AWN2 (talk) 01:19, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dorimachus[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Dorimachus requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Quiggers1P (talk) 20:07, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Fall of the Western Roman Empire[edit]

Thanks for your attention. I look forward to any comments you may find time to make on User talk:Richard Keatinge/Fall of the Western Roman Empire - on my talk page is probably best. Richard Keatinge (talk) 09:14, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

It may not be finished but I hope it's ready for mainspace and all that that implies. I will continue to work on it but would very much appreciate your comments. Richard Keatinge (talk) 20:49, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Have your tried contacting the administrator who deleted the article, one user:Explicit? This seems like a honest mistake. Bazuz (talk) 10:31, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Bazuz,

Thanks for your advice. I contacted the administrator who deleted the article and the article is up again.

Glad to have been of assistance! Bazuz (talk) 01:21, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

2012 Nuevo Laredo massacres[edit]

Hey, thanks for the clean-up in the 2012 Nuevo Laredo massacres! I just wanted to know exactly what is your reasoning behind this removal.[1] If you ask me, experts' analysis on the Sinaloa cartel incursions are usually beneficial, since it is impossible to understand the criminal underworld and we can only interprete what happens before our eyes. Best, ComputerJA (talk) 12:45, 13 June 2012 (UTC)


I thought those specific analyses were not contributing anything material in the form they were written. They were just tossing around speculations. I may be wrong about this, of course.

Incidentally, I think the whole article needs some change of perspective. While the cartels are sadly a fact on he ground, I do not think the wikipedia needs to record their history in such meticulous detail - the overall contours yes, but the precise detailing of which crimial subgang slightered which rival, when and how, can be left to police reports or very specialized books.

What do you think?

Bazuz (talk) 12:59, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it really depends on how the speculation is written. Wikipedia has a strict guideline for speculations (see: WP:SPECULATION), and only predictions, speculation, forecasts and theories stated by reliable, expert sources or recognized entities in a field may be included. And in this case, we MAY allow for the two speculations in the article to be left, but I don't know. It works both ways.
As for the detailed writing... I guess that's just me being all ref-ninja and meticulous :p That's my style. If something I deem important is missing, I always make sure to write it. I don't know what to say about that, LOL. What about you? ComputerJA (talk) 18:31, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 25[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Wolverhampton Riot, 1835, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Whig and ?? (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

SMoS: Schellenberg's niece[edit]

Reference added. Thanks for the attention, I probably thought the one in the end of the section covered it. Bahavd Gita (talk) 10:54, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

generalissimus vs. commander-in-chief[edit]

The lead section had this recent addition: "(though with power not delegated from outside the military power structure, as commander-in-chief often is; i.e., an elected official)[citation needed]. " (by 22:15, 22 February 2011 I deleted this as it's not very clear. However, did raise an interesting question: what is the difference between the two terms? Bazuz (talk) 20:35, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Commander in Chief is the generic name for a head of the armed forces most commonly associated with a head of state. It is a position or appointment and does not infer a nor carry the substantive title or insignia of a specific military rank. Much in the same way a Chief of Staff as an appointment can and has been held by different substantive grades of general. Dainamo (talk) 14:11, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Lightsaber, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Edward Hamilton (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
