Iris fulva[edit]

I put this picture in the article. I took it about a week ago. Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 16:29, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

I have re-weaked the article to match wiki plants method of style - includes a lead paragraphDavidAnstiss (talk) 14:30, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

That's great. Thanks again for your contributions DavidAnstiss. I'll have to upload a picture I recently took of Iris fulva. The only other thing I'd mention about your style that I think can be improved upon is to avoid wp:citation clutter. The article I have worked on most extensively is deep vein thrombosis (keep active to prevent DVT! =) — blood flow through the calves helps prevent blood clots). You'll notice there that I never have more than two inline citations at a time. That's my preferred method. Thanks again.

Your deletion of material from the lede here on the basis of your POV that it is not good for the lede is belied by wp:lede. This is perfectly appropriate for a lede. The lede serves as an introduction to the article and a summary of its most important aspects. Of course, this -- which bears on motive -- is one of its most important aspects. --Epeefleche (talk) 07:42, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello Epeefleche. Unfortunately, I made a quick scan of the article and I thought it wasn't covered in the body, thus I thought its existence in the lead violated wp:lead. I'll note your use of the words "deletion", "POV", and your tone generally, come off, to me at least, as running counter to wp:agf. Sorry I have to say that. But I can't expect much from Wikipedia, I guess, generally speaking, unfortunately. Biosthmors (talk) pls notify me (i.e. {{U}}) while signing a reply, thx 15:19, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Next time, since your quick scan missed the material that drives home the fact that it complied with wp:lede, you might consider doing a word search within the body of a material word in what you are considering moving out of the lede. That will aid you in finding the material in the body, and avoid unfortunate improper moves like the above. Epeefleche (talk) 19:31, 6 May 2015 (UTC)


What are you thinking here? You deleted clearly material information. Such as the timing of the post. And that Baghdadi is an ISIS leader. And the fact that the declaration of allegiance related to the other gunman? Please ... other explain, or stop. This sort of editing is not helpful. --Epeefleche (talk) 19:29, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Epeefleche, I clearly didn't think it was important enough for the lead. There should have been no deletion as that is impossible from the lead. Content is in the body. The lead is a summary. What to put in the lead is an editorial decision. Unfortunately, I do not find your comments on my talk page beneficial for the project. Please refrain from ever posting here again. Thank you.

Well, I'll try to remember not to post here other than to give you a warning -- because we don't like to report editors to a noticeboard without having given them a warning, and their talk page is the place to do it. Please take this as a warning. The reason I am warning you is as follows. If I assume good faith, which of course is a rebuttable presumption -- one could conclude from your pattern of editing that you have rebutted the assumption -- then I have to assume extraordinarily poor judgment. Leading to disruptive editing. You don't think it is important enough for the lede that the attacker posted that information directly before the attack? That the attacker pledged allegiance to an ISIS leader? That he also did so on behalf of the other gunman? If you continue editing in this manner, my warning is that I will have to elevate this to a noticeboard to discuss your behavior. Best. Epeefleche (talk) 17:49, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I'm busy. I haven't read or thought about this yet. I'm sure I will later. But please stop posting here. I see you've already posted here once after I've asked you nicely to stop. Please don't post here again. I don't want to have to report you for such a silly thing as harassment. Thanks.

I saw your comment here :). It is indeed an interesting idea, especially if we can make a list of redlinks, whether articles you want to create, or existing redlinks that you want to stub. Lets see how this would work :) Thanks for suggesting nice stuff.--Melamrawy (WMF) (talk) 11:08, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Redlink in lede[edit]

No addition to add a redlink in the lede of a person of questionable notability, as you did here. Especially in the lede -- let's not add a redlink unless there is confidence that the person is notable. --Epeefleche (talk) 04:12, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

reaching me[edit]

Hello, Biosthmors. :)

I've just seen your ping at village pump. I'm happy to see that User:Whatamidoing (WMF) stepped in there and helped you connect with the right staff person to talk to about that issue. I just wanted to let you know that I am not that often on Wikipedia with this account and so pings may generally not reach me quickly. I hope if you need me you will feel free to nudge me at my talk page. I'm happy to try to assist. :) --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 14:27, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
