5 supports and 1 oppose which turns out to be by a sockpuppet. Can you please unclose and relist. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:24, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Same at Talk:Ok (glacier) I'm afraid. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:35, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
And Talk:Choi Soo-young. Which was a second bite at the apple. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:52, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for fixing Bingo album, can you please unclose and relist the other two. Thanks. In ictu oculi (talk) 15:51, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
    • I have closed and moved the Ok discussion because, without the sockpuppet, there was only support for the move. Choi Soo-young is another matter: while this was nominated by the sockpuppet, other editors supported the nomination too. Do you disagree with that move, setting aside who nominated it? Ground Zero | t 18:49, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I do mildly disagree with the move now I look at the bulk of sources. But that isn't the reason for relisting/reopening it. The c-banned user had already tried once with that article, to succeed again with a sockpuppet sets a bad precedent. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:14, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
I see the merit in your argument, but I also see that oitehr editors have voted for the move in good faith, and I am concerned about ignoring their views on the matter. The sock is now banned, and most of his work undone. Ground Zero | t 13:02, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

REPLY: Referring to Toronto's Subway/RT lines[edit]

The Toronto Transit Commission refers to subway lines by numbers more often now a days rather by name according to their website which is why I tried them out on several on Wikipedia articles, by replacing line names to line numbers as a pilot project to see if it will work. Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Toronto#Referring_to_Toronto_subway_lines. Alex R. (Toronto) (talk) 15:36, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

The TTC's preferences are not our concern. We're not writing the TTC's website. We're writing encyclopeda articles to inform readers around the world. Which is more informative -- "Bloor-Danforth"? Or "Line 2"? Ground Zero | t 16:14, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Alberta separatism[edit]

Random idea I just want to bounce off of someone, should Alberta separatism and Western alienation pages(both of which seem to be mostly a relic from 2005) be merged? Knoper (talk) 22:30, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

Same frequent tags relating to Jalpaiguri[edit]

See, I know that u r an administrator, and I'm sorry for being a bit rude previously ..but being an administrator does that mean that u wud revert edits of just anyone simply.. Whoever, u may be u r NOT from Jalpaiguri or nearby.. & u have NO right to comment or to fix up any such issues related to these articles on which u're NOT involved.. U r NOT to simply abuse or revert such just like that, u get it?? & taking 'bout Jalpaiguri,'s my hometown & I don' t wish to see any of ur stupid tags hanging within or around the article's page relating to neutrality dispute or edit warring, etc etc .. Therefore, I wud like to request u to see to the matter and I don' t blame u for dis, coz it's just dat I don' t think if it's ur fault since u r just an administrator ..Anywayzz, if u do wish to keep the page secured and keep it's privacy I wud lyk to cooperate as well ..:) .. Android9 (talk) do reply for sure,, if in mood :p :))

Disambiguation link notification for November 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David Grubbs, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page North (film). 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.

About the List of U.S. Wilderness Areas=[edit]

Your correction for Congress was appropriate - I shouldn't have undone that. The issue of the designation date, however, is more complex. When an area is expanded or the boundaries changed, a new law is passed. Thus there may be multiple designation dates for the same area. For example, the Black Forest Mountain Wilderness was first designated on 10/19/84. It was expanded through a second designation on 10/18/88 and was expanded again on 10/7/98. So there are three designation dates for this same area. In creating this list I entered what I called the original or earliest date for the area. The second sentence does explain some of this but I felt it was not quite clear. Perhaps you could find better language to explain my point, or perhaps it is not as vague as I thought it was. Either way, I'm not going to change it again. Lexaxis7 (talk) 16:27, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Global account[edit]

Hi Ground Zero! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement). By looking at your your account, I realized that you don't have a global account yet. In order to secure your name, I recommend you to create such account on your own by submitting your password on Special:MergeAccount and unifying your local accounts. If you have any problems with doing that or further questions, please don't hesitate to ping me with {{ping|DerHexer}}. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:02, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Leadership conventions[edit]

Thanks. I am also working on the 1973 Liberal convention which will be available soon. When I can find the time I will be adding more details on the significant Ontario leadership contests. EncyclopediaUpdaticus (talk) 03:00, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
