NY Harbor School[edit]

Hi! It seems weird that you're taking out the history of the UA NY Harbor School. You're removing the college acceptances, etc. Why would you do that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dustynyfeathers (talkcontribs) 16:09, 26 September 2014‎ (UTC)

Such information must have a source. Besides, it is easier to mention the types of colleges, or even just say the number of colleges, instead of listing them all. – Epicgenius (talk) 22:28, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Besides, I did not remove all the history, as I removed a small section. You should speak to Nikkimaria about that, as she is the one who removed all the content you are disputing. Epicgenius (talk) 01:36, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
The stuff I removed from the history section was copied from an external source without evidence of permission. Nikkimaria (talk) 01:43, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation. I was just explaining to Dustynyfeathers why their content was removed. – Epicgenius (talk) 01:46, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Guiliani[edit]

Hello,

Removing an entire section because you find a given link unpreferable is generally indicative of censorship and not in the spirit of WP. As a New Yorker, I understand you may be dismayed to find out that your former mayor and terrorism hero has openly flaunted federal laws on providing material support to terrorists, I know I was. This ultimately means that this factual news needs to be shared more, it needs to be headlined and not buried. I look forward to working with you through your criticisms to make the article on the mayor as best as possible.

Best Regards, a ferret lover 172.56.2.190 (talk) 13:18, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

I am unaware of my having made such a statement. It is not preferable because the references support a statement not directly connected to the article subject (Giuliani). – Epicgenius (talk) 13:21, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Which statement would that be? You removed the entire section due to a video of the guy linked on youtube, a link to a specific section on the terrorist group that vastly elaborates on their history and a series of links to WL cables which provide better context on the inner monologues of the governments position on the group than an entire array of media sources. You make no reference to a 'statement not directly connected', moreover if that was the case it would be more prudent to improve or modify the section, not remove it entirely.
172.56.2.190 (talk) 13:24, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Several other editors have raised concerns. Normally, I would not remove it, but tag it with {{Unreliable sources}}' however, the removal is due to these other editors' concerns. – Epicgenius (talk) 13:28, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, largely unfounded concerns by people in NY removing the entire section based largely on flimsy arguments. You have not answered the question however, what statement was not supported by the references? Also, note my commentary here, especially the first paragraph: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Barek#edit_warring_-_Gringrich.2C_Ridge.2C_Freehan_support_of_the_PMOI.2FMEK — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.56.2.190 (talk) 13:34, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Didn't say they were unsupported by references. I'll mention this again: The statement was on a tangent, and so were the unsupporting references.

Now, as for the matter of the disputed content, you could either notify all the users who have reverted you so far, or start a request for discussion. Otherwise, you are wasting Barek's and my time. – Epicgenius (talk) 13:44, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

Edit to Kingsbridge Armory[edit]

Just as one note on this, you don't really have to lowercase wikilinked article titles that are to the left of the pipe, as they aren't visible except when rolled over anyway. Daniel Case (talk) 13:59, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks. I was doing that because I was using the pipe trick. Epicgenius (talk) 14:32, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Queens Midtown Tunnel[edit]

Hi, I can't seem to find any official sources that indicates a dash in the name of the tunnel. I am trying my best to reflect this change across the various pages, but I'm wondering if you have any evidence for keeping the dash. Regards c16sh (speak up) 00:01, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

@C16sh: Usually, in casual parlance, both are used. Technically, however, the endash joins two entities, which in this case are Queens and Midtown, so the name with the dash is grammatically correct. However, references to the tunnel with and without the dash are split either way. – Epicgenius (talk) 00:08, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, there is also the fact that it's also referred to as the "midtown Tunnel" very often, too. – Epicgenius (talk) 00:09, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Official sources, such as state and city websites, omit the dash. It's hard to think of what source would be more authoritative. It's their tunnel. SPECIFICO talk 00:25, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Okay. But don't go around changing links just to omit the dash, as it is discouraged. Rather, just add a note on the article showing the name without the dash. – Epicgenius (talk) 00:45, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
