Incomplete longevity claims[edit]

I was adding some info that was part of a section in the Longevity claims article. These two sections used to match and think it makes sense for them to match. Rpvt (talk) 01:41, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

OK, then, my apologies. All I saw was what appeared to be an expansion of claims in the article but without any sources, which are required to be in this article even if they appear in some other article. Please be sure that whatever you add to Incomplete longevity claims includes citations of the reliable sources given at Longevity claims. If unsourced at the latter, please don't copy to the former, as it will be reverted. Thanks. Dwpaul Talk 01:45, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
I don't know any sources except the Longevity claims article on Wikipedia for that information. If the information needs reliable sources to be there, then does that mean that it shouldn't be there on the Longevity claims article. Rpvt (talk) 20:56, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that's exactly what it means. If there are no sources available, the information shouldn't be on Wikipedia at all. The "incomplete longevity claims" article doesn't get a pass on that policy -- it refers to cases where a person of supposedly exceptional age can't produce documentation to support their claim, but we still need some other reliable source (not another WIkipedia article) to talk about that claim in order to mention it here.

Could you please take a look at two articles that I have created today Jan O. Jansson and Sophia Rosenhane. Thanks!--BabbaQ (talk) 20:10, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

The IndyStar information was as extensively paraphrased as is possible without altering the facts. If you can improve my paraphrasing, please do, but do not revert the edit as it is not a copyright violation in its present form. Dwpaul Talk 15:28, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Meshach Taylor, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page AP (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.

Could you please take a look at Elsa Collin and Brita von Horn. Would appreciate it!--BabbaQ (talk) 23:18, 13 July 2014 (UTC)


Is it just me, or is User:AmySlaterstylist the same as User:Dr. Amy S. Slater? Bearian (talk) 16:47, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

I would say yes, though as I understand it simply editing (even badly) using multiple accounts isn't verboten, only doing so to evade a block, influence an administrative discussion, etc. Dwpaul Talk 18:11, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Please don't remove dead links this way[edit]

Hey. Please don't just remove dead links from articles as you did in this edit. Either replace the dead link with a live one, add a link to an archived version of the original link, or replace the cited source with another source that includes the same information. When you just remove the link, it makes it harder for other editors to fix it in the future. Thanks! —Mr. Granger (talk · contribs) 04:07, 24 July 2014 (UTC)


People with WP:COI kept removing the db tags which is why it was not speedy deleted before. Eventually someone ended up creating an AfD. --Jersey92 (talk) 02:11, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Understood, I was watching. However, once the Afd is created, {{db}} is no longer an option. Dwpaul Talk 02:18, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

2004 numbers[edit]

Hi, the Haaretz article looks a solid source to me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pupamassive (talkcontribs) 18:48, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

When Haaretz says that 848 mortar shells and 377 Qassam rockets were fired at Israel in 2005, it does not support the claim that "1225 rockets were fired at Israel in 2005". It supports the statement that 848 mortar shells and 377 Qassam rockets were fired at Israel in 2005, and that is what the article now states. Dwpaul Talk 18:53, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Did you notice[edit]

That I had just added a sentence on the organization? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 23:26, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Have adjusted the text slightly to be more specific to the ref in question. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 23:35, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
