Hello to all fellow Wikipedians. GoodDay 22:40, 17 November 2005 (UTC).

Noia 64 apps karm.svg This user has been on Wikipedia for 9 years, 4 months and 15 days.

You may be wondering why my archives only start at August 2007. The reason: I didn't archive my pages before that date, I merely deleted them (as I didn't know how to archive). Therefore, if anyone wishes to see material before August 2007? check out this talkpage's 'history'.


I've an Awards page, where I keep a list of Wikipedia awards bestowed upon me.

Notice of Neutral point of view noticeboard discussion[edit]

Hello, GoodDay. This message is being sent to inform you that there currently is a discussion at Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

Politician infoboxes[edit]

I know you've previously expressed the opinion that the leadership of a political party should not be listed in a politician's main infobox — but firstly, the consensus went against you on it, so no such rule exists anywhere outside of your own personal beliefs. And secondly, in the particular case of George Key, since he failed to win election to the provincial legislature and Summerside is not large enough a city to get a person over WP:NPOL just for being its mayor, his leadership of the Progressive Conservatives is the crux of why he gets to have a Wikipedia article at all — so it does need to be present in the infobox, since it is the core notability claim. Bearcat (talk) 22:15, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

If you're going to add them, then it would be best to add them to all the PEI party leaders bio articles. Personally, I don't see them as necessary, now that we've got the navboxes in place. GoodDay (talk) 22:17, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
The problem with relying exclusively on the navboxes to cover a party leadership position is that the navboxes just indicate the names of the leaders, but not the dates of their terms in the leadership. Which is why the navboxes complement, but can't entirely supplant, inclusion of leadership information in the infobox. Bearcat (talk) 22:27, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
You've the dates in the content. Again, if you're going to add such info to an infobox, you should be doing it for all those bio articles. Consistency is the idea. GoodDay (talk) 22:29, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Template:Ontario MPPs[edit]

I reverted your removal of the cabinet members from this template. I like to see at a glance who is in cabinet and who isn't. This template provides that. Cabinet members are still members of the the Legislature. I don't need or want a separate template for that. EncyclopediaUpdaticus (talk) 17:01, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

The majority of these Templates didn't highlight cabinet members. Consistency is prefered here. As for the Ontario cabinet? that's handled at Executive Council of Ontario. -- GoodDay (talk) 17:03, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

"Right you are, good sir"[edit]

We have done nothing wrong. I just had a premonition that, one day, he might visit here, see our conversation....and blow a gasket. Ive dealt with him a bit. He doesn't trust the world...even the one he himself creates. TRA!. Buster Seven Talk 21:10, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Cool. GoodDay (talk) 21:15, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

The place names were already in the intro. I merely replaced the commas, which is what's done for most biography articles. GoodDay (talk) 19:59, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
The problem isn't with the commas, the problem is that the article has no references on the all. I should have tagged the article instead of simply reverting your changes.

Note though, I didn't add the place names :) GoodDay (talk) 02:04, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

March 2015[edit]

I am very concerned by this edit - for several reasons. Firstly, that your edit summary ("per WP:MOSNUM") does not accurately describe the edit; secondly, in WP:MOSNUM, which you claim your edit is conforming to, the section entitled Strong national ties to a topic says, “Articles on topics with strong ties to a particular English-speaking country should generally use the more common date format for that nation.” Ireland uses Date, Month, Year i.e. his date of birth should be shown as 28 March 1895, not March 28, 1895; thirdly, (and far more importantly), that you have changed his place of birth from Limerick, Ireland, to Limerick, Ireland. i.e. pipe-linking Ireland to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, directly contravening the Ireland MOS. The Ireland MOS Place of birth, death etc. section says “For people anywhere else in Ireland at any time, "Ireland" should be used.” It is inconceivable that you would be unaware of the contentious nature of this edit. Please now self-revert. Furthermore, please also self-revert any other similar edits you may have made to Ireland related biographies. Daicaregos (talk) 13:30, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Most bios go with MDY Place. As for the links to the correct countries? You can revert whatever you wish. PS: FWIW, I don't make provocative edits. GoodDay (talk) 14:44, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
History tells us otherwise. Thank you for self-reverting on William Roche (rugby union). Please confirm you have made no similar edits to other Ireland related biographies. Are you still under probation on Britain and Ireland articles? Daicaregos (talk) 15:04, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
I can't remember if I have. But, I'll avoid making those 'country' corrections in future. MY British/Irish topic-ban expired in April 2014. PS: Note that the dates were already MDY, before I moved them ahead of the birth & death places. GoodDay (talk) 15:21, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. I was aware they were already MDY. However, as your edit summary suggested the edit was made in order to conform with WP:MOSNUM, that is really what it should do ... and it doesn't. I remain concerned that your edit summary did not reflect the edit. And, especially, that you should have contravened WP:IMOS, particularly after having been involved in a discussion where it was highlighted so often. Were you somehow unaware it would be contentious? Daicaregos (talk) 15:44, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that it would be contentious. Of course, it's been years since I been involved in such discussions. Again, I avoid making such country corrections in future. GoodDay (talk) 15:50, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
It is not years since you have been involved. It is three weeks. Such a contentious edit (changing a place of birth from Ireland to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland) contravenes your site-ban suspension. Would you consider a voluntary Britain and Ireland topic ban? Daicaregos (talk) 16:04, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
That discussion was about Derry/Londonderry. If you had reverted my changes, I wouldn't have protested. GoodDay (talk) 16:08, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
IMHO, you're over-reacting. However, I'll try to stay away from British & Irish articles, 'til May 21. GoodDay (talk) 16:11, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
The discussion links to WP:IMOS four times - all before your final comment. You may not read discussions you involve yourself in, but you would have been aware that changing a place of birth from Ireland to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland would be contentious. Had you not tried to hide your edit with a misleading edit summary, I would have just reverted, but here we are. I was thinking more along the lines of a permanent Britain and Ireland topic ban. It isn't as if this is your first disruptive edit since your site-ban suspension. Here, for example. Daicaregos (talk) 16:29, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
I will try to avoid British & Irish articles until May 21, 2015. GoodDay (talk) 16:31, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Howdy, GD. This guy Daicaregos. It's best not to enter into conversation with him (don't feed the trolls). I suggest you delete anything he posts on your Talk page. PeterPunch (talk) 20:49, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

It's likely best that I don't delete. GoodDay (talk) 01:15, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Anyways, I'll avoid linking pre-1922 Ireland to United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Although, I don't understand what's wrong with linking to Republic of Ireland for that area post-1949. Meanwhile making 'DASH' edits isn't disruptive. GoodDay (talk) 15:57, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Mutual Admiration Society[edit]

I was looking over archives of my talk page when I stumbled upon the following:
Thanks for the compliment, Buster7. You're cool under fire, as well. GoodDay (talk) 19:45, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
It was about something that happened at the Sarah Palin talk page back then. I have no idea what it was that I complimented you on but it was the beginning of our Mutual Admiration Society which, sad to say, still has only two members after almost 7 years. . Buster Seven Talk 18:24, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Wowser. GoodDay (talk) 01:13, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
