Orphaned non-free media (File:Manitoba_CHT_logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Manitoba_CHT_logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 22:46, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Gary Doer[edit]

Hello,

I should let you know that I've (provisionally, at least) re-added Doer's non-portfolio ministerial titles to the infobox. I understand your point about the box appearing cluttered, but I also think that these positions are significant enough to include, and I've included them on several other pages in the past. I'm open to suggestions as to how to take both of our concerns into account. CJCurrie (talk) 01:13, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Good work on the Broadbent Institute! Pburka (talk) 00:48, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

You want me to cite the english language?[edit]

Where is the citation for the claim that "Brigette DePape is a Canadian activist"

Is she certified by the Canadian Board of Activists? I inserted additional information about her interruption of the 41st Parliament of Canada, you want me to cite what exactly? Why is this woman on Wikipedia? What are her accomplishments...? Showing up on the newscycle for two days?

Fucking biased piece of garbage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.244.26.200 (talk) 08:31, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Some bubble tea for you![edit]

Bubble Tea.png For your exceptional googling skills (better than mine, apparently Smile.png ) that discovered the meaning of "DU" as post-nominal letters in Canada. LukasMatt (talk) 04:58, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Green[edit]

Hello! I actually wasn't the one who added the Greens to the infobox (I just added the "GRN" since no picture of Alain Landry is on Wikipedia) but from what I remember the reasoning behind it was that the Greens are doing well enough in the polls (as they are likely represented by most of the "Other" voters) that they've met the general consensus for being added to the infobox (as I recall, I think it's something like if a party is continually polling above 5%...). Anyway, hope that helps. Tholden28 (talk) 04:03, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Federation of Canadian Municipalities, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages English, French and Halifax. 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.

UE[edit]

What is your rationale for adding "UE" to this post nominals page? This term has no official recognition and has no standing with the provincial/federal government.

Your supporting footnote does not even reference a post nominal. Lord Dorchester's pre-confederation decree allows the use of the term "United Empire Loyalist" and not a post nominal. The supporting footnote uses the term "based on" meaning that thee letters UE were never officially granted by Lord Dorchester. UE is merely a modern day interpretation of a historic decree. It is recognized and used only within the private UELAC organization. If a private group can create its own post nominal than what is to stop this page being flooded with every creation of the human imagination? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 113.162.131.222 (talk) 17:22, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Elections and Referendums article tagging[edit]

Hi Graham. Sorry to have to post directly on your talk page, but you may have noticed (on the WP:Elections and referendums talk page) that I am trying to get all the election and referendum articles tagged for the project. Unfortunately this is not making any progress, as people are claiming there is no consensus to do this, as no-one has responded on the Project talk page. Could you possibly comment on the proposal at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Elections and Referendums#Bot to tag articles for the WikiProject, as I'm getting rather frustrated by the attitude of the people at WP:BTR.

Proposed deletion of Gerald Morin[edit]

Question about academic postnominals in info boxes[edit]

Hello, I've noticed that you've been removing academic abbreviations after names in info boxes. I am also not a fan of this custom but I am not sure that it's actually contrary to the MOS guidelines (unlike using them in the opening sentence or elsewhere after names in the body of articles. So I've been giving the inclusion of them in info boxes the benefit of the doubt. I would be interested in whether you know if there is anything somewhere in the MOS about using or not using them in info boxes. Thanks, Anglicanus (talk) 10:58, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

I've been omitting them per WP:POSTNOM. The first sentence ("Post-nominal letters, other than those denoting academic degrees, should be included when they are issued by a country or widely recognizable organization with which the subject has been closely associated" [emphasis added]) doesn't make any distinction between whether they're in the lede or elsewhere (eg, the infobox). While it doesn't explicitly say that they're impermissible, I think the intention is quite clear. That being said, I've had more experience editing political biographies than religious biographies. I know this is standard practice with political bios, at least. Graham (talk) 20:02, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I think you are probably right about the intention being anywhere in an article. Some editors, however, take the view that if something isn't explicitly frowned upon then it is permissible. Cheers, Anglicanus (talk) 12:09, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
