User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1

Archive[edit]

By-the-way: You need to archive your talk page. Pdfpdf (talk) 14:05, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but I've never known how to archive. Jim Michael (talk) 16:41, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
May I help / suggest / advise / whatever? Pdfpdf (talk) 17:02, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
If you want to, you could give me simple instructions on how to do so. Jim Michael (talk) 17:06, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
OK. There are (at least) several methods, and I don't know if or why any is better than any other, but here are the two simplest I know of. Method 1 involves "move". Method 2 involves cut and paste.
1 - Move
a) Move User talk:Jim Michael to User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1
b) Edit both pages.
c) Copy and paste from User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1 into User talk:Jim Michael the stuff you like to have on your talk page.
d) Save User talk:Jim Michael.
2 - Cut and paste
a) Edit User talk:Jim Michael; place "User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1" somewhere on the page; "Show preview"
b) Shift-click on the red link User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1 - you'll then have two pages open.
c) Cut from User talk:Jim Michael and paste it to User talk:Jim Michael/Archive 1.
d) Save both pages.

Hope that's helpful. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 17:27, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks - I'll try that. Jim Michael (talk) 17:31, 26 June 2013 (UTC) I tried and failed because I can't work out how to move text from one page to another. Jim Michael (talk) 17:50, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Would you like me to do it for you? Pdfpdf (talk) 17:53, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Done. Pdfpdf (talk) 18:22, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. Jim Michael (talk) 21:18, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi Jim. It's often very useful to leave a link to your Archive(s) at your talk page . You can even add a tool to search inside your archive if you want to. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:24, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Done. Jim Michael (talk) 21:34, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Drat! I was going to try to use it as a bribe to get you to leave edit summaries. lol. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:38, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Murder of Daniel Pelka, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Waterboard (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

"Lower class" disambiguation[edit]

Hello, Jim Michael. There are currently a large number of pages (more than 50) pointing to Lower class, which you recently turned into a disambiguation page. Any help you would provide fixing those incoming links and making sure they point to the right place will be appreciated. Happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 06:21, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Joe Wilkinson[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Joe Wilkinson has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I simply do not believe that the a single-line stub about a retired footballer is anywhere near as commonly viewed as the comedian. A sort of G6, but is controversial maintenance.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Thank you[edit]

As an 89-year-old, I’ve been revising the Old age article and am just beginning work on “life expectancy.” Thanks for catching errors I would have missed. I’d appreciate your checking all my edits and, if you’re interested in old age, offering suggestions. Vejlefjord (talk) 17:20, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

The variations between life expectancy should be expanded on, both in regard to the present situation and how this has changed over time. Most parts of the world have seen massive increases in life expectancy, but some parts of sub-Saharan Africa, eg. Zimbabwe have seen falls in their life expectancies, due to the AIDS epidemic. Russia and Eastern Europe have the largest differences between male and female life expectancies, partly due to the high male suicide rates there.
Another improvement to the article could include how the elders are the leaders of their communities in some rural parts of the developing and underdeveloped world.
It's difficult to decide which information should be added to the old age article, what should be on the life expectancy article etc. Jim Michael (talk) 21:52, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Problems on the Death of Mark Duggan page[edit]

Jim, in this edit you call the subject of the article an "irresponsible, overbreeding, gun-toting, convicted criminal" and ignore the talk page provided for discussion of the issue. If this is the kind of language you choose to express yourself it will oviously be difficult to edit with neutrality. -Darouet (talk) 16:39, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

The section on the talk page so far supports not having the 'unarmed' category, my removal was supporting the consensus on the talk page, not going against it. I've not ignored anything - I have joined discussions on the talk page, including the one concerning the cat in question. The cat was removed previously by someone else. If he truly were unarmed, then armed police would not have been following him. Duggan was shot because he was armed, so it is ridiculous to claim that he was unarmed. There are many people trying to paint Duggan as an innocent family man who was killed by the police for no real reason, whereas the truth of the matter is that he made a completely free choice to collect a gun from Kevin Hutchinson-Foster minutes before Duggan was shot. That Duggan threw the gun seconds before he was shot did not make him unarmed. He also made a free choice to routinely associate with known gang members, something which innocent people tend not to do. Duggan collecting a gun from drug dealer KHF minutes before his death totally discredits the case of his family and supporters that he was only a minor offender or that he had turned his back on crime.

Bogotá[edit]

(→‎Climate: Bogotá doesn't have winter)... Is this city in some mythical land where there are only three seasons? What do they call the period from 21 December to 20 March? Can you find me a location without a summer, I would so love to move there. (note: I did not revert or anything, just found the rationale amusing)--☾Loriendrew☽ (talk) 17:47, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

You're using the astronomical description of summer, which is not relevant when describing climate. It is four degrees latitude away from the equator; it doesn't have a cold/cool season, it is warm year-round - look at the climate chart, the average temperature of each month is virtually the same. I don't know why you think that everywhere in the world has four climactic seasons. Some parts of the world have two seasons, wet and dry - an example of this is Jakarta. Some parts of the world have no seasons - for example Singapore, which is hot and wet every month. Most of Antarctica and most of Greenland are covered with ice continously - hence they don't have summer, they have a cold season and an extremely cold season. I don't know why you'd want to move to somewhere that is continously frozen! Jim Michael (talk) 18:24, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Tutelary. I wanted to let you know that some of your recent contributions to Rubin Carter have been reverted or removed because they could be seen to be defamatory or libellous. Take a look at our welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Tutelary (talk) 11:38, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

I do not know why you have wrongly templated me. I have been a regular good contributor for years, editing most days. Defamation and libel can only be committed against living people; Carter is dead. BLP and its subsections, such as BLPCRIME only apply to living people. Carter's violent criminality is undisputed; the only dispute is whether or not he committed a triple murder. As I said in my edit summary, he was a serious convicted criminal from age 11 until he died, and would still have been even if he had never been accused of the triple murder. I have never said that he was a murderer. As he has unquashed convictions and he was a public figure for decades, I would not have violated BLPCRIME even if he had not died. Jim Michael (talk) 13:02, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
It still applies. See WP:BDP for proof of this. At least a minimum of 6 months. Tutelary (talk) 14:34, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Canberra. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware, Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made; that is to say, editors are not automatically "entitled" to three reverts.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Bidgee (talk) 11:47, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

A warning from the only person opposing me, the only person in an edit war with me, is inappropriate. You're reverting my factual improvements. I'll reply on Talk:Canberra. See Koeppen climate classification for how to describe climates. Moscow and Calgary have continental climates; Canberra does not. Twice today you've falsely stated that it is my opinion that Canberra has an oceanic climate (not continental), when it is fact. Jim Michael (talk) 12:18, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
