Bronx intro[edit]

In reverting the edit about the West and East Bronx instead of fixing the minor error, you reverted it to include the much larger error the the West Bronx is 1/8th the size of the East Bronx and took out a bunch of internal links to Bronx neighborhoods and reverted them to plain text. What is the point of that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:21, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

It isn't that size? Sorry. I thought the Bronx's east side was considerably bigger, but did not know the ratio. Epicgenius (talk) 11:03, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

They are about the same size. The Bronx River pretty much bisects the borough evenly (the East is a bit bigger). The entire South Bronx is part of the West Bronx ... a fact that folks in the northern part of the West Bronx really tried to de-emphasize after the really bad years in the South Bronx in the 1970s through 1990s. I think the edit I've made satisfies your concerns. If it does not, please just make the necessary edits rather than reverting.

Request for comment[edit]

As someone who has edited the article Asian American this year, I am seeking your input on a proposed change to remove a reference to epicanthic eyefolds. This topic has prompted discussion in 2009, 2010 and most recently in 2013.

There's a fine line between being WP:BOLD and subverting WP:CONSENSUS. Given the history of this topic, I'm hoping that a robust discussion, for the record, would improve the article whether this reference stays or goes. Ishu (talk) 13:50, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I'll make sure to stop by there. Epicgenius (talk) 11:03, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Oh, I just realized how much of a genius you really are, with the code in your userpage? And when typing this, I just realized that your username contained the word "geniuss" in it.  ΤheQ Editor  Talk? 16:46, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Epicgenius (talk) 23:40, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Overland Park, KS -Reform or Orthodox Jews[edit]

Why do you only want to list Orthodox congregations in Overland Park when anyone who really knows the area realizes that the a Reform population is much larger? Are you one of those Haredim who doesn't recognize Reform asJews? You clearly know very little about Overland Park. Have you ever left Brooklyn? I am about to send the "corrections" you made to the Kansas City Jewish Chronicle, which is published in Overland Park. I should have done that months ago. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Apace361 (talkcontribs) 13:43, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

I live in Queens (explained above), I am Chinese, and I don't know what you are talking about (for example, what are Haredim?). Could you please show me the edit where I made such an overture? Anyway, I'll check that article out, and see what exactly it is that I did wrong. Epicgenius (talk) 23:40, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
