Stylization of the "common name"[edit]

In January 2013 there was a "RfC on COMMONSTYLE proposal" at WT:AT in which you expressed an interest. FYI there is a similar debate taking place at the moment, see Wikipedia talk:Article titles#Stylization of the "common name" -- PBS-AWB (talk) 12:13, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Away team[edit]

Am I guessing right in assuming you never watched Star Trek? Because this is just wrong. Viriditas (talk) 01:51, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Please see the requested move discussion here. My concern is not with the formatting of the dab but with the target of the title. In your previous edit, you mistakenly removed one of the major uses of the term. Regardless of the primary use, the video game is not the target. Viriditas (talk) 02:15, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Your guess is wrong. I'm guessing you've never read WP:MALPLACED, though, nor the edit summaries directing editors to WP:RM instead of creating the malplaced disambiguation page. Also, no uses were mistakenly removed. The article Star Trek does not MOS:DABMENTION "away team". -- JHunterJ (talk) 14:04, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
JHunterJ, your edits, your removal of accurate information, your reverts to incorrect primary topics—all of it was unsupported and basically irrational. This is not the kind of behavior we expect from an admin. The video game has never been the primary topic at any time. Why you would restore this inaccuracy when informed of it is mind boggling. You appeal to rules as if they somehow allow you to do wrong things. I've seen you do this before. Viriditas (talk) 18:12, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Viriditas, your edits contrary to the consensus guidelines after those guidelines were pointed out was irrational. This is not the kind of behavior we expect from editors. The video was the primary topic for some time. You ignore rules as if they somehow don't apply to you. I don't remember our previous interaction, but I'd guess you were wrong then too. -- JHunterJ (talk) 13:25, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
What part of the word "guideline" is giving you difficulty? My edits were entirely in concordance with the facts and the consensus now formed on the RM discussion. 1) The video game has never been the primary topic, yet after this has been explained to you, you keep adding it back, in error. 2) Your removal of key entries from the dab page is in error, and your removal of those entries demonstrates you are more concerned with following the letter of the guideline rather than keeping Wikipedia accurate. This edit demonstrates poor judgment, and in the future, I will not be relying on your judgment again. Wikipedia is not a bureaucracy. That's the policy you violated by insisting we follow a guideline over good judgment. Viriditas (talk) 04:42, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Consensus is forming in the current discussion. Once the discussion is closed, then the consensus will have been formed. It's not a complicated distinction. Your addition of incorrect entries demonstrates that you disagree with the disambiguation guidelines but haven't gotten consensus for ignoring the rules here. You're more concerned with your opinion that keeping Wikipedia accurate. -- JHunterJ (talk) 14:56, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
