Actors by gender[edit]

There was a long discussion at both CfD and RFC last fall that resulted in a decision to create actress and male actors categories. More recently there were discussion of such categories as Category:American male child actors which closed to keep. This issue has been discussed multiple times with each time a decision to keep the category. I think will give you a sense of how this was discussed at multiple levels in multiple forums.John Pack Lambert (talk) 18:38, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Additionally, Category:American television actresses is 95%+ diffused from Category:American television actors. The most immediate question is, should we diffuse male actors out as well, or have the oddity of treating men as the norm and women as the exception.John Pack Lambert (talk) 18:45, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
  • For now, to have balance, we need categories like Category:Male actors from Fresno, California. Otherwise we will end up with women in Category:Actresses from California and the Fresno category, while men will be in just the Fresno category. The bigger question is do we need these actors categories at all. However, considering that Fresno is much larger than Hollywood, and considering that Category:Male actors from Hollywood, California seems to be reasonably sized, I would guess the Fresno cats can stay.John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:17, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Actually, now that I have fully diffused it Category:Male actors from Fresno, California is larger than that for some other cities. My general take on the issue is that gender is controlling to actors. Not only in both specifics and general details, but different awards are given to males and females. Having read through as many actor bios as I have, I can say that there are career paths for males and females, and they tend to be very different. Male actors are much more likely to start out in sports, and to go on to be directors and producers, although not quite as overwhelmingly so now. However, what is clear is that if we have any by city actress categories, we should split all by city categories into male actors and actress sub-cats. At one point I proposed to upmerge some categories like Category:Actors from Modesto, California, but was persuaded that the issue was much too big, and should be taken to an RfC. That has not happened, so we have no clear guidelines on what size is good for these categories.John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:36, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Accidental rollback[edit]

I rolledback your edit in Jahi McMath ‎accidentally - fat fingers while accessing WP from a mobile device, sorry about that. Nthep (talk) 09:34, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Jahi McMath[edit]

respectfully requesting that you consider that you appear to be exhibiting ownership issues with this article. I can see that you have blanked-out substantial amounts of other editors work and pushed your point of view on the article. In my opinion it is not helping Wikipedia or the article and I am asking you to please allow other editors to contribute. Can you please take a break from the article?

Disambiguation link notification for February 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Neutrois, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Genderless (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I want you to know that despite our disagreements I hold great respect for you and am happy to see another non-binary identified person on here. I'm speaking in the afd from a strictly sociological perspective not from an attacking perspective towards you.-Rainbowofpeace (talk) 18:27, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, appreciate the note. I know you're not attacking me, we just have differing views of whether the article belongs in Wikipedia or not. Funcrunch (talk) 18:56, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Funcrunch we have to talk[edit] OK-here is the thing. You said "Reference is to New Jersey, not "some states", and does not mention "clinical death""....actually yes, NJ is some states, as-in one example from one of the states that follow the federal law that says that states get to choose. NJ just happens to choose that familys get to decide when to pull the plug or not. There ARE "others" since each state decides in their own state statues/health codes. That cite does not mention "clinical death" because it doesn't have to, brain-dead, legally dead, as long as they are NOT permanently clinically dead-----the family decides. (talk) 06:13, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

I will discuss this with you on the talk page of the article. Funcrunch (talk) 06:17, 6 March 2014 (UTC)


Information icon Hello. It appears that you have been canvassing—leaving messages on a biased choice of users' talk pages to notify them of an ongoing community decision, debate, or vote. While friendly notices are allowed, they should be limited and nonpartisan in distribution and should reflect a neutral point of view. Please do not post notices which are indiscriminately cross-posted, which espouse a certain point of view or side of a debate, or which are selectively sent only to those who are believed to hold the same opinion as you. Remember to respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building by allowing decisions to reflect the prevailing opinion among the community at large.

How is this productive and what exactly is the goal here? (talk) 22:43, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with working on an article. I am collaborating on an RFC/U on your conduct with users who were directly involved in recent interactions with you. This is an established procedure and there is nothing hidden about it. Once the RfC is public you will be invited to comment on it. Funcrunch (talk) 22:50, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
What is the desired outcome? (talk) 22:52, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
I will not discuss this with you further while the RfC is in draft form. Once the RfC is certified and published you will be notified and invited to comment. Funcrunch (talk) 23:19, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Funcrunch. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 18:33, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
