Medupi response[edit]

Hi Edward Again I can see you are not a South African and do not understand the context. This power station is the most expensive project in SA history, and the interest amoungst the general population as to where their taxes has gone is overwhelming, hence the details on who has gained in terms of the contracts. Secondly the debate on climate change and dirty electricity is also huge, hence the criticism both positive and negative to this project.

You only mention the comments from the financing part of the discussion, not the environmental, the carbon and water reducing technology that had to be retrofitted to meet some of these criticisms. This power station is in our newspapers daily and the expectation for it to come on line is enormous, I believe you should look at this article again to understand what I was attempting to do and not just blow off every suggestion I have made. Kind regards.

Equality is not impossible, and didn't cause torture[edit]

Improper reversion of my edit to remove the absurd, uncited allegations that the search for equality has led to widespread murder and torture under dictatorships. At least have these cited if they are to remain, otherwise let a more neutral comment take its place. Thanks. VelvetCommuter (talk) VelvetCommuter


Sorry hooperag but Mr Edward I would like to talk about you and your theory on esotericism and I have been digging of how this things could become a realty please contact me when possible

Why the removal?[edit]

You recently removed a change of mine saying it was linkspam... I'm not sure I understand. It was on the Bible consistency and criticism pages and linked to BibViz which is on-topic, relevant, uses multiple sources of data and provides a novel way of exploring consistency and other issues. In my opinion it's just as useful as the infidels.org link, and even uses data from infidels.org. I don't understand why new links are considered linkspam but the infidels.org one is allowed to stay... 166.248.130.217 (talk) 00:00, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

About quick revert[edit]

Hello Edward321, I appreciate your contributions. However, I noticed that you generally quickly revert edits/additions by anonymous users in articles like Aisha, Abu Bakr. Yes, most of such edits are wrong and need to be reverted, but not all, for example, this one. This edit is sourced and valid. It needs to be copy-edited, not reverted. The reverting policy also says this. Hope, you will be more careful. Thanks. -AsceticRosé 15:36, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Note[edit]

Hi, Edward321! As you can see, I reverted category spams, overcategorizations etc which Erim Turukku did today. In most cases, he reverted your version of an article and put his instead. I think you should keep an eye on his edits, and if he continue this way consider to report him at ANI. He will be blocked anyway if he continue with edit warring and attempts to push in his versions of articles. Cheers! --Sundostund 20:28, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

As you can see, Edward, today he continue doing exactly the same things as before - category spams, overcategorizations, Turkic/Turkish POV, edit warring, etc... Do what you think is the most appropriate in this case. As you may assume, I have other things to do here than to constantly follow around a category spammer, Turkic/Turkish POV nationalist or whatever he is and to revert his nonsense edits. --Sundostund 15:12, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Edward! I'll do that. By the way, according to what Kansas Bear said on Erim Turukku's talk page, it may be possible that Turukku and User:EMr KnG are the same person. If that's the case, would it be a WP:SOCK? As you know, in most cases its illegal to have two accounts on WP. And, edits of both Turukku ([1]) and EMr KnG ([2]) look really similar... --Sundostund 00:03, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
After some looking into how to do it, I just opened an SPI on EMr KnG / Erim Turukku, you can see it at Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/EMr KnG. If you have something to add, etc feel free to do it. --Sundostund 19:40, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi, Can I ask why you have received new changes back? Erim Turukku (talk) 12:02, 2 November 2013 (UTC)


Greensboro Massacre[edit]

Hello, Edward 321. Sorry to revert your recent edit at the above referenced article, but I believe that it was wrong for two reasons. First, if you review the definition of Commission, you will see that it is a group with some degree of official authority. The Greensboro "commission" was just a private group trying to cloak themselves in this official robe. I left the word "commission" in the section, because that was the name they gave themselves, but did not Capitalize it, as if it was an official authority. The Starbucks reference is not as obvious, and I can see why you would want to trim it. But it goes to heart of the "private group/private protest" nature of the "commission". It demonstrates a pattern of activity on the part of the organizers that is neither local nor spontaneous. Again, I hate to revert a seasoned editor with good intentions, I probably should have left this message first. Hope to cross paths under better circumstances, in the future.

Preston Brooks[edit]

Please stop including BIASED information against Preston Brooks on his wikipedia page. I have included both sides/points of view in the Brooks-Sumner Affair aka The Caning of Sumner.

If you wish to add to that (although I assume you'd be bias there too) edit that page.

I have correctly cited all sources! Preston Brooks never once in congress voted to expand slavery, yet you say he is a huge advocate of slavery. While it is true that he defended states' rights to own slaves he also supported the rights of states to outlaw slavery- this always shined through. Even after some internal struggles, Brooks called for Kansas to be admitted as a free state. One can only assume he would of voted as such if he had not died. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CECD:AF90:93:64EC:DB89:6019 (talk) 00:46, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Preston Brooks, again[edit]

Hello Edward,

This is the same person that messaged you before. Now I have a username. I have the same problem with you as before. I am getting frustrated because I am added the information in the 2 books I read that were listed as REFERENCES in the page.

Would a fair compromise between us be me adding an addition Southern Views section? I am a non-confrontational person and I do not wish to get in a silly online battle that would embarrass us both.

Can we get to a fair resolution between us, friend? — Preceding unsigned comment added by CivilWarBufftradition (talkcontribs) 01:35, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

James Hanratty[edit]

Hello. You reversed my recent edit to this article as being unexplained, and I accept that you made a fair point. I have now provided the explanation on the article's Talk page. To expand a little here, I had myself originally drafted the text saying that no other male DNA had been found (aside from Hanratty's), and that this undermined the argument for "contamination". I made the recent changes for two reasons:

(1) On recently reading the decision of the Court of Appeal in full, I found that I had made a factual error in stating that no other male DNA had been found. This was true for the handkerchief but not true for the panties, where one other male source was found (attributed by the Court to Gregsten). I have corrected the factual statement accordingly.

(2) I had recently been challenged to provide a citation for my statement that a second male source would be expected if the contamination argument was to hold up. While this seems fairly obvious to me, I could not find a statement in so many terms in the Court's decision, or other sources immediately available to me. So for the moment I have dropped the inference that I made before. I still think the statement is common sense. If you can find a source making this statment, please re-insert the statement into the article and provide a citation for it.

Many thanks, Nandt1 Nandt1 (talk) 17:36, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Watch list[edit]

Please could you add List of casualties in Hussain's army at the Battle of Karbala to your watch list. There is an editor who keeps deleting mention that Hussain ibn Ali's father was 4th Caliph. The editor gives different explanations for the deletion. You may wish to express an opinion on the subject on the talk page.--Toddy1 (talk) 20:07, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Saraiki language[edit]

It is confirm that Saraiki is a language. Also Jhangvi dialect is dialect of Saraiki. This article is redundant with the Riasti dialect, Shah puri dialect, Multani dialect, Multani language, Thalochi dialect, Thalochi ,Derawali dialect articles. I suggest merging these articles , as the all these are same. And also be Redirected to Saraiki language. Kindly See these External Links

Notability issue[edit]

Edward 321: I noticed you deleted 3 citations from Cristina Patwa, yet you placed a Notability tag asking for more references. Why is there an issue of notability given all of the citations, particularly the ones from LA Times (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-fi-ct-factorymade-20130910,0,1723531,full.story#axzz2n7egzYJa) and Variety (http://variety.com/gallery/showbiz-strategists-variety-dealmakers-impact-report/#!3/executives-john-fogelman-and-cristina-patwa/) and Cable Fax (http://www.cablefax.com/cfp/just_in/A-Whos-Who-Channel-Guide-of-New-Cable-Networks_60858.html). These are now several, independent, reliable sources. Why would you delete sources? And why do you still have issues with notability? Seems personal.

Edward, your response does not make sense. You simply keep deleting citations that help to establish notability which are precisely about Patwa. Why would you delete those sources when they are secondary sources like the LA Times, Variety and CableFax? And why do those sources not establish credibility? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.197.248.178 (talk)

Turkmen People[edit]

i just added the right figure because here https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/af.html it states that turkmens are about 3% of total afghanistan population and total afghanistan population in 2013 was 31,108,077. The calculation works out to be roughly what i added. You can use this reference to modify the article in the best manner. Thankyou — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saladin1987 (talkcontribs) 19:09, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Reverts[edit]

Why did you go through my list of recent edits and revert them (Paradigm City)? Most had nothing to do with the Greene military strategy book. 174.22.15.64 (talk) 20:37, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Why do you keep on deleting "elite" and "prestigious" on Phillips Exeter Academy's Wikipedia page Edward321?[edit]

I understand why you took the words down last time. I didn't have ample sources to reference the words elite and prestigious. But this time, I had plenty of sources. It's as if you sit there and wait to take the words down. Why? I simply don't understand. Please tell me why you took the words down, because I put sources. I don't know if you didn't see them, and just deleted it anyway, thinking I didn't cite my sources. I did cite my sources. Please stop undoing it, or at least tell me why you keep undoing it.

Ok, I see that you think it's the "better version," but why? If Andover can say they're prestigious than Exeter certainly can as well. It's not like we're being arrogant here, it is true! Both schools are incredibly good schools, and other people should be able to know that.

In regards to Checkuser[edit]

Hello, I would like to point out to you that I am just as annoyed about the current edit warring and sock-puppetry as you may be. I have been dealing with this annoyance for over 10 years. Please see my history of edits and contributions at your own interest. I would never endorse meaningless sockpuppetry myself as I am highly against this idiotic behavior and I myself have been a target of such caliber of foolishness over the past decade. I believe the person you are dealing with is the very same that has been harassing me within this long period of time. Additionally, the user does have a tendency to attempt to infringe my name and pretend to be me. I assure you, this user has been doing this for a very long time and that is not an exaggeration. He has created over 300 accounts on not only the wikipedia primary but on all the wiki sister projects. Any help would be greatly appreciated on your part on maintaining a constant checkuser of suspicious activity. I myself would greatly prefer to halt the threat at a sooner time. In regards to the recent reverting of the article you mentioned, I did revert twice myself, and I acknowledge that, but that doesn't make me related to anyone else. I still believe that if an article exists without unsourced material, then there shouldn't be an exclusion of additional unsourced material. I even brought that up on the article talk page for discussion. I highly recommend that some names be expelled from the list or the article itself merits no inclusion when it is, suffice to say, a half-truth. You will find that I would like to aid the wiki and its related projects but would not go through the hassle of sourcing every tidbit. Regardless, I find that one checkuser will not be enough as you will need to forward all the most recent harassment activity to my talk page by this same sockpuppet in order to halt future activity from this user. I highly recommend that my talk page be protected from new users as this might help alleviate further vandalism. Thanks in advance. - Zarbon (talk) 01:27, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Edward321: Content you posted and posted to page of John Fogelman has been deleted again. The cited reason is that the news media article and organization is not credible, though the article is question is, as you said, is "no worse" than others in the article. The article in question is published by a publication (The Wrap) with its own Wikipedia article, and written by a former NY times journalist. Curious why someone has deleted content citing what appears to be a viable source (The Wrap) while leaving intact citations from its competitor, Deadline Hollywood. Your point that the sources someone deleted "are no worse than the positive sources about the subject" seems right on. Now a new user JSFarman has again deleted the content you posted and reposted. JSFarman appears to be professional fixer of unwanted content in show business Wikipedia articles, and a creator of PR articles, and her service has been described in a NY Times article. Calls herself a propagandist in some posts. I guess that doesn't matter if her articles are accurate. Curious to know why your postings were deleted.

Veggies "Better As A Redirect"[edit]

Hi - I've just gotten done reverting all (I think) of the edits you made on Veggie video pages to delete the content and make them redirects. I'm not sure of your reasoning, since your edit comment was the same and it clearly doesn't make anything "better" especially when you are redirecting to an existing redirect, so I simply rolled back the original. To be honest, I've appreciated your edits over the last several months, since previous to this I was somewhat alone keeping "the wolves at bay", so I was surprised to see this. If you had something in mind when you did this, I'd be happy to hear as I'd prefer to work with you (as a well experienced fellow editor) to improve these pages.

Thanks for your edits[edit]

Hello Edward, I 'd like to thank you for some of your edits in my article Illuminati symbolism, I completely agree that some of my parts were too much of an opinion. I just wanted to say that the part which I wrote about the Simpsons was not an opinion but originated in fact from the newspaper which I referred to here. I think though that the other parts of the article currently used have more relevance and as this Simpsons episode is only mentioned in one newspaper I think that it's better to use references to the illuminati which can be read in multiple sources. I have improved the article and added references to several books, newspapers etc. which aren't from conspiracy theorists. I also think that the links indeed weren't good, so I thank you for this too. Bokareis (talk) 17:15, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't see why anyone else's unsourced opinion should be treated differently from my unsourced opinion. It's also troubling that both the Mahabharata and Ramayana are listed, but not the Bible. This is clearly a Western bias, since the former are sacred texts of Hinduism. We either take out all religious texts, or none.95.150.255.119 (talk) 18:41, 20 November 2014 (UTC)


Thank you for your reply. While I understand your reasoning, the premise of your assumption is wrong. I do not feel that religious texts shouldn't be mentioned. I think they should if it is relevant and I very much regret that they are treated differently. Seeing that the first paragraph had not been significantly changed since 2008, I imagined there was an editorial consensus that such an unsourced listing was ok. Therefore, my approach was not conterproductive, since it wasn't my aim to exclude religious texts. Accusations of bias may in most cases be inaccurate, but considering RLetson's reply here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Fantasy#Religious_Texts , they were certainly appropriate. In 2008, a user had complained that the Bible was not included, while other religious texts (Hinduism) were. He also mentioned apocryphal texts such as The Odyssey. RLetson's response defended the exclusion of the Bible, rightly pointing out that The Odyssey is another kind of text, but omitting the user's legitimate concern about the different treatment of the Hinduist texts.95.150.255.119 (talk) 20:40, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Editors like you[edit]

Hey, thanks for removing the unsourced "and viewers like you" funding content from various articles, like this one. Though I think there might be some value to this information, we are relying too heavily on the primary sources (the episodes) for this content. Anyhow, thanks.

Sockpuppet?[edit]

I have noticed certain IPs[4][5] and editor[6] pushing an "Uzbek" POV over a couple of articles. Starting to smell like sockpuppetry. --Kansas Bear (talk) 20:53, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Baloch people[edit]

In regards to your revisions here, are you actually reading the sources? The first source here says there are 8.8 million. I put that in myself. I don't know where you're getting the 20 million number you're putting in. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 09:44, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

The edit summary of "reverted falsification of the sources and fixed vandalism" seemed pretty clear to me. My apologies though. The article has been a repeated source of all sorts of editors screwing with it. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:24, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Sockpuppets[edit]

I have noticed an increase in sockpuppets pushing an Uzbek POV over numerous articles, including Siktirgitir. Would now be the time to file another sock report? --Kansas Bear (talk) 23:06, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I have filed a sock puppet investigation. If you were interested in adding evidence. --Kansas Bear (talk) 04:24, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Information regarding umar[edit]

Hi edward, you deleted some information i have added on the umar ibn khattab page due to sourcing my information from another wikipedia article. Apologies for that

i have sourced my info direct from sunan abu dawood which is one of the six books of hadith for sunni muslims. I have also added ali muhammad as sallabee book on umar for further information.

Finally there is someone who edited the page after me doing alot of changes and he took out bits from of umar's intoduction. (most powerful/influential caliph?) Tried undoing it but to no avail. Just letting you know edward

I feel its unfair[edit]

Respected Sir,

Greetings,

I am new to editing Wikipedia.I found out that my initial edits were rolled back for lack of references and improper formatting. I totaly agree with those rollbacks and am really grateful to you for your help and valued guidance.

I have done a lot of research on Abutalib bin Abdul Muttalib and feel really sorry when few people quote politically motivated and fabricated narrations about this Holy Personality. A personality who sacrificed what ever he had for the sake of Islam. It was only Abutalib bin Abdul Muttalib who came forward when Islam needed help and all the blood which was shed in the way of Islam belonged to Abutalib his children grandchildren and his family.Islam would not have moved an inch ahead without his help and support.

Beleive me I worte the post not for the sake of any monatary or social benefit.I felt that it was my duty to present the truth in front of the world. The duty of a slave towards his Master.

There can be two view points to any given topic. For Eg: The Christans beleive Jesus Christ to be the son of God, while the Muslims beleive him to be a prophet of God.

Some people beleive that the United States actually went on the moon. While some people beleive that the entire sequence was shot in a studio.

Both have their own reasons and arguements, a fair deal would be to allow both the sides to pesent their arguments and let the readers decide. It was fair when my edits were rolled back for lack of references or for Improper formatting, but rollbacks stating that the previous version was better without going into the depth of the matter is against the laws of natural justice.

If you are a muslim you might be knowing that there are two view points regarding Abutalib bin Abdul Muttalib, If you are a non-muslim then undoing my edits without knowledge is unfair.

Every one is answerable on the day of judgement only upto the extent of his ability.

It was within my capacity to study the personality of Abutalib.........which I did, It was within my capacity to consult scholars to ascertain my findings....... which I did, It was within my capacity to argue with people and present the truth in front of them.......... which I did, It was within my capacity to spread the truth using all possible ways including the Internet ..........which I did (my website www.abutalib.info), It was within my capacity to discuss the matter with you and improve my posts........ which I did.

But to undo your rollbacks life long.......... is beyond my capacity.......this I cannot do

I did what ever I could...... and I am not answerable for what is beyond my capacity.

I am open to discussions and debates but just rolling back my edits stating that the previous version was better is unfair.

I would repost the data one last time after two days. If you feel you still perfer to roll back I would not try again. Allah is the best of all the judges.

I end my post with a pray to Allah : "O Allah ! To present arguments was my job, to change hearts is yours. I might be incompetent but you are not."

Regards

A slave of Abutalib bin Abdul Muttalib

Dele Serom of Zynab Bint Ali in Yazid's Court in the Battle of Karbala Article[edit]

Hi! Why you deleted this chapter from Battle of Karbala? that is historical and unsourced and all of that is quote! Hananeh.M.h (talk) 06:15, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Battle of Karbala
I am rather concerned that you and anther editor may be about to engage in an edit war over the section on Sermons during the journey from Karbala to Damascus in the article on the Battle of Karbala. It looks as if each of you have done one revert already. Please could we discuss this on the article talk page, where there is a discussion - see Talk:Battle of Karbala#Aded the Sermons and separate.-- Toddy1 (talk) 12:42, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Lists of fantasy novels[edit]

Edward, although I appreciate your pruning out the redlinks from the lists of fantasy novels, the general principle is that an entry must have a bluelink for the title or the author. DS (talk) 13:26, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I was thinking that based on the editnotice in list of science fiction novels; it's certainly reasonable to apply it equally to SF and F. DS (talk) 01:41, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

I have suggested to User:Hadi.anani that he paste his revise of the article on the article page. I will have comments on it in due course, but I have not had time so far.

Circassians[edit]

Hello,

I've reverted this edit of yours as the article explicitly states she was a Circassian and born into a Circassian family. The lede only states "Safavid Iranian noblewoman" as she was simply born and raised in Safavid Iran.
