On regards to what you told me on the RfC reply.[edit]

Hello GenQuest! This is Keeby. I just wanted to let you know that I understand wholeheartedly what you were telling me back on the Sasanian Empire talk page. :D

But I must ask. When you said that you were referring to the above debates, you meant the edit war? Correct? If so, then yes I do admit that back then I did have a serious issue with citing any reliable sources.

However, you have to admit that I pin pointed reliable boundaries and cited pretty reliable sources on the current RfC proposal?

Overall, I do thank you for the advice that you have given me and I thank you for you support for a new map! Cheers! Keeby101 (talk) 13:30, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Keeby, let's please keep the discussion on the article talk page so we are not talking past each other, OK? Thanks. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 03:56, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

The Basketweave[edit]

I've temporarily reversed the mergers to Ontario Highway 401 and Ontario Highway 427. Floydian had indicated that most of the content did not need to be copied into the 401 article. As he was the primary contributor to a Featured Article, a little deference to his opinions in how to deal with a merger is in order, I think. Sometimes, the best course of action in performing a merger is to summarize the content to avoid issues of undue weight. Imzadi 1979  02:35, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

There is no source regarding the "basketweave" on Highway 427, so it shouldn't go in. Regarding Highway 401, it is briefly mentioned in the Route description. However, the only reliable source that mentions it, aside from newspapers mentioning upcoming lane closures, is my MapArt atlas, which it is cited to. Cheers, Floydian τ ¢ 03:38, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
This is all fine. I am simply clearing mergers by moving content into the article per an AfD result. If you then feel the content is non-notable or unsourced, simply delete it (which the AfD probably should've done in this case) or correct it. Regards, GenQuest "Talk to Me" 04:44, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello and thank you for your note. The link I removed from the Bachelors Grove Cemetery page was placed to direct readers to slander against someone and is not useful to the topic. I added a better site which is relevant to the topic and, as a longtime historian of the cemetery, made a few notes in a couple of sections, with references added.

Middlefaire[edit]

As I don't want to get in an edit war with another user, I asked admin BOZ for help in resolving the addition to the List of Renaissance fairs as you can see here. Thanks for your understanding. Alden Loveshade (talk) 01:54, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

No problem, Alden. The number one reason the revert happened was that the edit was inserted in the middle of another entry in the table. That way, you can fix it and see what you did wrong. However, the fair that you inserted doesn't seem very notable, (probably due to it being a new one). That is why the criteria in the article was established about entries being established for so many years, etc. I will take some time tonight/tomorrow to see if I can possibly find additional sourcing, and you can do likewise, but the newness of the event will probably preclude finding much. There's no war here. Regards, GenQuest "Talk to Me" 02:10, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
I concur - no war here, and talking it out is always the best way to go. :) BOZ (talk) 03:01, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you both for being courteous, helpful editors. I think I see where I may have caused a problem. I probably should have put a note in the talk page explaining my edit. Middlefaire is a privately-owned, permanent setting created by Paul Delacroix and others. It has a number of permanent, Renaissance fair buildings. The fair there is held at different times of the year and with different themes. These include Middlefaire Renaissance Festival, Texas Pirate Festival, and now Texas Fantasy Festival. The site has been featured in several newspapers including The Dallas Morning News, one of the largest circulation papers in the United States; on Texas Country Reporter (both the online listing and the TV program--note it was one of the few events listed on the TV show one week but was not a featured story); and (ahem) was the subject of a 'ren faire speak" article written for Yahoo! that appears here. I would have added the Yahoo! article as a source if not for the fact I wrote it--feel free to add it if you like. Note that I do not own the Middlefaire site or any part of it (you can see the disclaimer I was required to make for Yahoo! on the article), but have been a visitor there. I hope this claries my edit, and that the Texas Fantasy Festival part of Middlefaire can be added back in. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to let me know. Alden Loveshade (talk) 06:01, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done. Re-inserted with changes per conversation. Regards. GenQuest "Talk to Me"
Thank you very much for the re-insertion. Again I'm sorry for any confusion I might have caused. Alden Loveshade (talk) 04:27, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Where's Cars of the Philippines discussion?[edit]

You merged Cars of the Philippines into Transportation in the Philippines after a discussion according to the edit summary. Where is the record of that discussion? The merger created a very long article consisting mostly of a list of car names and I am wondering why that list shouldn't be either in its own article (which would recreate the cars in... article) or simply deleted. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 13:19, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

@Iloilo Wanderer: see the talk page of the source article for the link to the discussion(s). In this case, it would be the template on top of the Talk:Cars of the Philippines page. I agree the article probably should have been deleted instead, but that's not what AfD reached consensus on. You can ask one of the AfD admins to resurrect the original article (de-merge), but the reason for deleting most articles of this nature usually centers on reliable sourcing, or, rather, the lack thereof. Regards, GenQuest "Talk to Me" 00:05, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
You actually have to go there and scroll throught the Talk Article history. The link is: Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Cars_of_the_Philippines. Hope that helps @Iloilo Wanderer:. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 04:08, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. I hadn't thought about looking at old Talk pages. I did some digging but not there. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 07:48, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Merger of Calculus and Infinitesimal calculus[edit]

I would be glad to help. Should I just be WP:BOLD, or would you like to assign me a specific task so we are not duplicating effort? Thenub314 (talk) 20:11, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Be BOLD on this. You probably understand the math better than most here, so have at it; and, Thanks. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 20:14, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
PS: I can do the redirects, etc. if needed after you move the necessary content over. Just let me know. Thanks again. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 20:16, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Shapeshifting, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Countenance (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.

Possible system gaming[edit]

I would like to return your attention to template:Location map Israel incident, where Sepsis II modified a long-standing version of Israeli map to "1949 borders" version without any discussion, suspiciously naming it File:Neutral Israel location map.svg instead of File:Israel location map.svg. I would like your feedback at WP:ANI following your remarks at the talk page. I shall also inform other administrators and editors involved in that incident, now posted at ANI - Gaming the system.GreyShark (dibra) 18:07, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

I have given my opinions and reasons at the ANI and the talk page's discussion area. Although Sepsis II seems to be an uncivil pain to deal with, and he went about implementing his new map additions in the wrong way, I think a blending of existing maps and his maps can be useful in bringing the article maps into something approaching NPOV. Good luck. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 16:32, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com. Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Extant Organizations/Noticeboard[edit]

Someone suggested at the Village Pump that I boldly create Wikipedia:Extant Organizations/Noticeboard, a noticeboard to discuss articles about organizations that may be subject to non-neutral editing. Basically it's the corporate version of BLPN, where both adverts and attack pages can be brought to the community for broader scrutiny. Except this board does not currently relate to a specific policy like BLPN does, except NPOV, V, etc. (though it could refer to this essay I wrote or something). You participated in the prior village pump discussion that led to consensus for Template:COI editnotice, which is now widely used. Although this noticeboard is not COI-related, I thought you might have an interest in this as well, in whether the noticeboard should be kept and/or in participating in it generally.
