List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Re. WDAS Page[edit]

As you have noticed, someone, we only have an IP, tried to complete the history for the WDAS page. This user's writing style lacks context (this was a critical/financial _______ is not suitable). I think the timeline we had to break up the history was right because decades aren't the best way to organize the history of an organization like WDAS. I'll post some of the completed sections (Move to CG and Lasseter/Catmull) that I've worked on to the rewrite page. Let me know what you think.

WP:MOS on trans women[edit]

Where in the WP:MOS does it address the gender appropriateness of a transsexual? I don't see it mentioned at all. I have no issue with sex changes or gender identity issues, but the Alexis Reich article becomes very confusing when feminine pronouns are used with someone who was a man at the time the article refers to. It appears, by looking at edit histories, that I am not the only one who has seen this as confusing. It would only make sense that one refers to the biological gender identified at the time the event happened--When Reich is John Mark Karr, Reich is a "he", and when Reich is Alexis Reich, Reich is a "she".

Logging in[edit]

(1) You have asked me several times to log in. I have heard and replied to your requests. Further such requests are not needed. I understand that you would prefer that I log in.

(2) Editors are not required to log in to make edits.

(3) Because I have a dynamic IP address, it changes often, but the first numbers are always "99.192". I make a point of indicating where I am the same person who made a previous edit in the same discussion or on the same page with a different IP address signature by using an "(=99.192...)" style indicator. Knowing which edits are mine is not difficult to determine.

(4) Wikipedia does have policies against people making edits using different logged in names or different IP addresses, but only when it is done to deceive other editors. You can have two different logged in names if you like, one solely to edit articles on classical music and one solely to edit articles on the American interstate highway system. Making edits with different IP addresses is similarly permitted provided there is no attempt to deceive. By indicating where I am the same editor as one who made previous edits in the same conversation, I clearly am not trying to deceive. I am doing the opposite.

(5) You have said you want me to log in "so that [my] edits will be kept together." But edits are not kept together by logging in, only a person's edit history is. In my experience, the only reason people have for wanting to know about my edit history is when they want to make a discussion personal rather than about the subject at hand. If I made edits 6 months ago to update the filmography of Meryl Streep, that is immaterial to the discussion here and so it is odd that you would care about it. If it is important to you to know something about my past editing, you can always ask. But expect my first reply might be: "Why does it matter to you?"

(6) If it is really very important to you to keep a list of all of my edits on the current discussion at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style, just search the page for all instances of 99.192, click in the IP address, and you will get the lists. You can then copy and paste the information from those pages onto a sub-page on your own user page that you can create for yourself. But why you need to have a master list of all my edits is beyond my understanding.... Unless you want to stalk or harass me.... Which is one more reason not to want to log in.

Male to female[edit]

Hello, I wanted to discuss this with you here. I assume you are a resonable person. My question to you is, do you understand the difference between gender and sex as I have described it to you? I have endeavored to make it as simple as possible. Sex is biologically based, it is the body, the genitals and the secondary sex characteristics. Right? Gender is the social construct of being man or woman. It is in the mind. Transsexual minds are wired differently than cisgender minds. Most people have a congruence between the two. They have a male body and they have a man's mind, or they have a female body and a woman's mind. It is all very straightforward for them. They give it not a second thought. But transgender individuals find that there is a disparity between their body and their mind. Those male bodied may feel that they are more like the women and girls around them, that their thoughts and feelings align more with the thoughts and feelings of a female. Transsexuals report this feelig very early in life, under 7 years old, usually around the time of the first memories. This causes a horrible condition that can only be cured with medical intervention. To treat the condition, the body is made to correspond to the person's gender. Hormonal intervention and surgeries allow the individual to have the body that matchess their gender. Then, they are congruent, a woman in a female body.
There is really no problem with the term male to female. What test do you propose so that I might prove it to you? Would you want to leave the term there if it were reasonable and properly the way to describe the condition of transsexuality? I ask you to consider what I am saying to you and to look into the matter for yourself. If you do, you will find that my description is very close if not exactly what medical professionals would say on the matter. Let's settle this as reasonable adults.

Traditional animation[edit]

You previously participated in a discussion of the title of traditional animation. There is currently a move discussion at Talk:Traditional animation you might be interested in. —  AjaxSmack  00:53, 4 September 2013 (UTC)


I just wanted to point out that transwoman is most often one word. Once again I am annoyed by your trivial edits, because it seems that you WANT there to be confusion. 'trans' is not a word by itself. Actually, using it that way violates key rules itself. Yet, you say that it MUST be used that way. That is false. Once again, you are misinformed. I am just baffled.

hyperbolic tilings with Euclidean polygons[edit]

(Many months late...) Actually, it's not a completely mistaken assumption. Some hyperbolic tilings like {3,7} or {5,4} can be made this way, but that concentrates all the curvature at the vertices of the tiling. Double sharp (talk) 15:37, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Northeastern United States[edit]

Thanks for your note. I added an explanation on the talk page as to why not Indiana and Michigan (or Illinois, for that matter). There is currently nothing in the article (other than listing definitions that include them) relating to any of those states. Ohio seemed like a borderline case, since the only information in the article that is inclusive of Ohio is about Federal Prisons. If it were up to me, I would subtract out any Federal Prisons in Ohio for the figures in the article, but I'm sure that would result in someone crying about WP:OR.

P.S., I would love to hear your take on the most recent brush-up over the addition of political party strength and election results. Maher-shalal-hashbaz (talk) 15:20, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Chelsea Manning infobox[edit]

The image caption in the infobox at the top of the article Chelsea Manning says "Manning in 2012". Please don't undo the text that says "as a male", as the image is clearly not of a female. Thanks. Epicgenius(give him tiradecheck out damage) 01:03, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Angelina from "Giants"[edit]

Ok I'll talk, there's a rumor going around that the female lead named Angelina from the upcoming 2016 Disney film "Giants" based on "Jack and the Beanstalk" is going to join. I just wanted to warn people not to add that to the "Future Princesses" section just like Moana. - JaDangerz (talk) 01:41, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sesame Workshop funding sources[edit]

Degen's eight-square identity[edit]

As there is no chance of this being deleted, I think it would be a good idea if you would withdraw your nomination. That would of course show good faith. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 17:02, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Just add a line at the bottom withdrawing it, I'll close it. Dougweller (talk) 18:36, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, it's closed. Dougweller (talk) 18:52, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

"Birmingham City"[edit]

What do you think about Birmingham City (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views) ? It currently redirects to a soccer team, but this is a different target than City of Birmingham (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views) redirects to. As you implemented a solution to the flag requiring disambiguation problem, I thought I'd ask your opinion. There are quite a few incoming links on this one though. My personal view is that "Birmingham City" should redirect to Birmingham (disambiguation). -- (talk) 23:43, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
