Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Gary Stewart (politician), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page John Baird (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Template:Canadian federal by-election, November 25, 2013/Toronto Centre – Candidate's name[edit]

In April, you updated Template:Canadian federal by-election, November 25, 2013/Toronto Centre (∆ here) to change a candidate's names from [[John Turmel|John "The Engineer" Turmel]].

Normally, I would agree with you that the use of this oddball name is rather unencyclopedic; however, in this case, the official name of the candidate, as listed by Elections Canada, is “John "The Engineer" Turmel” — See "November 25, 2013 By-elections".   Given that Elections Canada calls him that, it seems appropriate that the election results on WP should match.

I've changed the candidates name back to …"The Engineer"…; if you disagree, go ahead and undo my reversion of your edit and I'll leave it that way, no offense taken.

Collapsing Election Results templates‽[edit]

Why are you changing all the election results templates to collapsed (like here, here, & here)?  The whole point of moving them to transcludable templates is so that they can be included in multiple articles.  In long articles with multiple election results, Ottawa—Vanier is a short one, the reader will need to click sometimes dozens of "show/hide" links in order to view the information.  I'm not sure that there is an advantage to that?  — Who R you? Talk 05:11, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

I added this question and another topic to the main template's talk page.  Perhaps you'd care to provide additional comment on Use of “Election results” tables in politician articles and maybe you also have an opinion on Calculation of Swing.  I'm just seeking a consistent look that everyone agrees on before we invest the effort making any major changes.  Cheers  — Who R you? Talk 18:06, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
