Howard Wolowitz edit by 98.204.52.153[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your message. I've seen Howard using ASL before, and ASL is its own language, distinct from English, so it is correct to include it in the list of languages he speaks. I think if the biography includes Klingon,a fictional language, it should definitely include a real language used by at least 500,000, and possibly up to 2 million, Americans. [1]LatelyESquared (talk) 23:46, 30 July 2014 (UTC)LatelyESquared

If you are referring to this revert, I reverted the edit because it included the word "hi" and therefore I did not take it seriously. If you can provide a reliable source which shows he uses ASL (an episode of the show is fine) please feel free to add it to the article. BethNaught (talk) 06:32, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure where the "hi" came from--if I entered it, is was unintentional. I will add the ASL information back in with a reference. Thanks!LatelyESquared (talk) 17:33, 31 July 2014 (UTC)LatelyESquared

You are most welcome[edit]

Thanks for the cake, it was delicious. Lovely little article, it's great to see para-sport athlete pages being created with the detail and evidence you have used. I've created a few articles on the topic so if you need any advice, drop me a line. All the best, FruitMonkey (talk) 19:34, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

@FruitMonkey: Thank you for your kind words – so kind in fact, I wrote another one! I would really appreciate you giving User:BethNaught/Samantha Kinghorn a check-over before I move it to mainspace. It's another short one, so not too much bother, I hope. BethNaught (talk) 13:43, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

BookMyShow[edit]

You declined this previously and a new editor seems to have accepted it using the helper scrip despite not meeting the criteria for using it. I would like to defer to your judgement over whether it ought to have been accepted. Fiddle Faddle 18:38, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

@Timtrent: First off, it's kind of you to ask me even though I'm now inactive at AfC and though you are more experienced than I. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
As to the draft, although it has been heavily edited, I stand by my original conclusion: though I believe it has sufficient coverage to meet GNG, and certainly enough to pass AfC, the tone is way off encyclopaedic:
  • It uses lakhs and crores, which I believe are discouraged by the MoS;
  • It has weasel/buzzwords and borderline promotion, such as "The new slogan is My Show. My Time. My Seat" and "And soon as it expanded, it started offering online ticketing solutions".
Furthermore, I believe WP:V is not met: many points which could be contentious (such as the info about the founders, which must be BLP compliant) have no footnote. I have not done a complete fact check, but I think it is likely WP:OR in part. So I agree that it ought not be accepted right now. Hope that helps! BethNaught (talk) 19:04, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
What a shame you are inactive there. I appreciate your work. Never confuse experience with expertise. I may not be all I am cracked up to be. Would you consider taking one extra action and undo the move and review and then re-review it as you just have, above? I can and will do it iof you prefer, but I do think you should have the modicum of credit for the review Face-smile.svg Fiddle Faddle 19:09, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
We have been half pre-empted by another editor. The article is back at Draft, but has not been reviewed further. I'm very happy to leave that to you or another reviewer. Fiddle Faddle 19:20, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
I have expanded and adapted my review and posted it to the draft. Thanks for the offer, but I thought I might as well :) BethNaught (talk) 19:24, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
That calls for a YOOOOOOWWWZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! Thank you. Fiddle Faddle 19:26, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Please look over my article[edit]

Please have a look over my article Mufti Menk i have tried to provide three Refs / sorces for the biography . please do reply to this message REGARDS — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mutaal98 (talkcontribs)

The links you have added are to facebook, twitter and YouTube. None of these are reliable sources which demonstrate his notability. To properly support the article and show why it should be kept in Wikipedia, you need to provide references to multiple independent reliable sources which discuss Mufti Menk in some detail (as a rough guide, one paragraph per ref minimum for notability).

Choripán[edit]

Choripán is a neologism for the ancestral Spanish term bocadillo de chorizo asado/emparedado de chorizo asado.[1][2] 81.39.235.153 (talk) 19:32, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

I can't read spanish well, but it appears to me that the sources may well support your claim. I won't revert your change again, but to explain to others you should explain your edit using the edit summary. Thanks, BethNaught (talk) 19:37, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
These two sources i have provided here are more reliable than all other used in the article, but the argentinian wikipedists here and at Spanish wiki are too powerful to beat. The first source is from a licenciate and the second is from the Spanish real academia de la lengua, equivalent to the webster and oxford dictionaries. Thank you. 88.19.58.125 (talk) 19:46, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Look, I know nothing about choripán, so I'm not getting involved in any content dispute you may be involved in, and as I said, I won't oppose your change. But if the issue is contentious one always ought to raise it on the article talk page. BethNaught (talk) 19:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry about your problems, but I'm not a medical professional. I have no idea what in particular you're suffering from but you should really just see your doctor as soon as possible and ask them all these questions. I hope they can help you and you get better.
