Cite journal[edit]

Is prefered over cite doi. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 15:32, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

  • To Jmh649: Could you at least subst: the {{cite doi}}s, rather than reverting? The way the {{cite journal}}s are done at the moment is sloppy (some fields left out; e.g. "Surname AB, Lastname CD" rather than "Surname, A. B.; Lastname, C. D."). That's why I used {{cite doi}}: to get a bot to fill the template out to ensure that it would be formatted correctly. It Is Me Here t / c 17:02, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Most editors want the details of the refs within our articles. How does one substitute the details within the article? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 18:11, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
It took a bit of jiggery-pokery, but it's been done now. Is that now OK? It Is Me Here t / c 21:45, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
We like the refs formatted the same as the ref tool bar formats them: over one line. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 03:02, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Is it OK now? It Is Me Here t / c 22:00, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
The refs were standardly formatted before. I do not understand why the reordering and the adding of the unneeded url? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 03:46, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
Because the formatting of them is slightly more accurate, as I intimated above. But, since you keep objecting to my edits, I will no longer be pursuing this. It Is Me Here t / c 12:19, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

So my questions are: 1)Why the url? 2)Why change the ordering of the sections within the ref? Overall the refs got less not more consistent. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 13:22, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

RD[edit]

Please replace Di Stefano to RD. His death is not "stale". Thanks. The Rambling Man (talk) 21:09, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, I've done it. Suggest your familiarise yourself with the way ITN works before wading in and making obvious mistakes. The Rambling Man (talk) 21:16, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Anwar al-Awlaki[edit]

Re your message about U.S./US and U.K./UK, I did know about that MoS rule. I cannot remember now, but going by my edit summaries, I clearly thought consistency with the rest of the article was more important. I have reverted my changes, but there still remain a lot of U.K.s and U.S.s in the article. I would have altered them now, but the "search and replace" tool in the edit box does not work, or not on my laptop at least. I have been meaning to report it for some time to the Village Pump HD and will do now. If I get it sorted out, I will come back and do those other changes. --P123ct1 (talk) 13:32, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab[edit]

I saw your post over on Talk:Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab about the lede, so I made a suggestion for more neutral language. Just giving you a heads up in case you want to check it out. If no one objects, we can replace the old one with this (slightly) modified one. Ljpernic (talk) 11:55, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Cascading Module:Citation/CS1[edit]

I could be wrong, but I think the only effect of adding cascading protection to Module:Citation/CS1 was to full-protect the doc page (Module:Citation/CS1/doc) and all of the templates that appear on the doc page (e.g. {{high-risk}}, {{module rating}}). As best I can tell, cascading protection applied to modules doesn't extend to any of the submodules that the module dynamically loads. So I don't think it has the effect that you imagined it would. As describing at CASCADE, we don't generally apply cascading protection directly to templates because it doesn't work well, and I believe the same it probably true for Lua modules as well. Dragons flight (talk) 19:36, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. Yes, you're right, my idea was that it automatically protect pages like Module:Citation/CS1/Arguments, and any such pages as might be created in the future. If it didn't work, please feel free to revert. Best, It Is Me Here t / c 19:44, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

ISIS[edit]

We are trying to reduce the number of footnotes in the Lead, not add to them. See #65 "Great article" on the Talk page. --P123ct1 (talk) 18:41, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
