Hi, I've moved the Church of the Creator discussion there, since it was started on the 6th, not the 5th. —rybec 06:51, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia red links[edit]


In this edit you added some text to Wikipedia:Red link without any discussion, however, under WP:BRD this is fine, you were WP:BOLD.

I then reverted your addition. Under WP:BRD my WP:REVERT was also fine, as it says "When reverting, be specific about your reasons in the edit summary and use links if needed" - my edit summary was "Contradicts WP:DDD" which it did, as WP DDD clearly says "Don't add red links that aren't used in any articles"

The next stage of WP:BRD the process is, of course, WP:Discussion, which occurs when the article is back to its pre-bold state

However, you did not discuss, and, despite my having given a reason for my reversion, In this edit, you reverted my reversion; with the edit summary "Reverted good faith edits by Arjayay (talk): Editors are entitled to a justification for reverts for anything that's not obvious vandalism." The implication of this summary is that I had not justified the reason for my revert, whereas the fact that your addition contravened WP:DDD, as explained in my edit summary, is clear justification.

I have, therefore, reinstated the "stable" text, before your edit and look forward to discussing this on the talk page. Arjayay (talk) 14:00, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

OK - now it's my turn to apologize - I had not seen your apology on Wikipedia talk:Red link - and, as you had misspelled my name, I did not get a notification of this either. (I normally apologize on the editor's talk page).
However, as explained, the text you added is not parallel with that at WP:DDD - I need to collect my thoughts on how this could be reworded - or maybe we need to agree exactly what we are trying to achieve, before trying to find the exact words? Arjayay (talk) 14:11, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

ANI thread[edit]

You may be interested in WP:ANI#Bad deletions, WP:IDIDNTHERETHAT, and Personal attacks by admin Jni since you commented in the relevant WT:CSD thread. DES (talk) 00:25, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

World population articles[edit]

Hi, you responded to a post I made at WP:Cities. A discussion is now occurring at [1] regarding the merging of one article into another. Further input would be useful, so please post there if you have any comments to add. Thanks. Eldumpo (talk) 19:37, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

"Creation is not the same thing as deletion"[edit]

I just wanted to say thank you for putting extremely concisely and nicely "creation is not the same as deletion". I wish I could pack so much thought into so few words. It is a very good way to put it. Si Trew (talk) 02:06, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
