I'll stop I am the artist and there is information on my VV Brown page that is incorrect. My team keep trying to change it but it always goes back to the wrong information. Lollipops and politics was never released so was never a second album. Samson and Delilah is my second album.There is also other information that is 100% wrong and needs changing. How can I inform you on this so its correct ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.70.169.94 (talk) 01:02, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Vancouver School of Economics

Hello, For some reason you have restored old content onto a page I updated regarding the old Department of Economics at UBC. I am the Marketing Manager for the School - thus I want to ensure the public has the accurate information for contacting us or researching our School. Please immediately put back the content I published as it is the accurate information about the School.

Global warming controversy[edit]

Hello, There are several notable scientists most notably the great physicist Freeman Dyson and the physics nobel laureate Ivar Giaever who oppose the mainstream opinion about our role in global warming and claim the models are too simplistic and are irrelevant for predicting what the future will hold. I think it is only fair to mention these views on the global warming controversy page, and instead of saying no controversy exists among scientists in the preface note these scientists. I would love to get a hand in editing this page (as I obviously am a beginner). — Preceding unsigned comment added by MrWorshipMe (talkcontribs) 09:22, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

regarding the change I made in Flagellation[edit]

Thanks for keeping Wikipedia a reliable reference, actually you removed all the paragraph that I added a correction sentence to it,the paragraph said that raped women are to be punished in Islamic countries. A statement that I have doubts about it but what I'm sure about is that is not in Islamic law so I only added the sentence but this is against Islam as I remember. now as you removed the paragraph I replied to, I find no need to add my comment but still you can have the reference of my editing http://www.muslimaccess.com/articles/Women/rape_in_islam.asp . thanks again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amanyda (talkcontribs) 23:58, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Jprg, you are well respected member, Probably impossible to understand by anyone, who lied to you so that you protect a misogynist RooshV who was named the most hated man in the world, part of extremist and hate group, who is on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s extremism report, a privilege usually reserved for neo-Nazis and terrorists

Maybe you should read more about him, before editing his page and removing important information about him.

Do you realize the effect that it has on your reputation, to support an extremist, mysoginist, have you even read his hateful works and the interviews for Washtington Times or Daily Dot magazines and what RooshV constantly promotes? Have you read his books and his articles and what Roosh constantly promotes? Do you realize the effect on your reputation to associate yourself with RooshV ?

Books were missing from Richard Paul Evans bibliography and they were in the wrong publishing order. Also added a quote directly from his website about Christmas Box House charity which is very important to him. As well, added the basic biographical info found on the flyleaf of his books re wife Keri, five kids, residence in Salt Lake City UT, and (as visitors to Wiki would be curious and assume as much geographically) confirmed he is LDS (as am I). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.51.113.187 (talk) 20:48, 5 November 2012 (UTC)


Regarding your recent edit in Kingdom of Rajarata page. This is the summary by the obi2canibetal. Talk:Kingdom_of_Rajarata I believe this article is a hoax and have nominated it for deletion here.--obi2canibetal He also believes the Kingdom of Rajarata = Kingdom of Anuradhapura.But in Sri Lanka it is not. http://www.sundaytimes.lk/111030/Plus/plus_01.html. All the 5 kingdoms are part of the kingdom of Rajarata. It is like Roman Empire (Western + Eastern). Using same logic someone can argue that there is no such thing like Roman Empire. But considering the extend of the period Roman empire we need everything to identify patterns,similarities. If someone nominate to delete Roman Empire and merge things to the western (Rome) , eastern (Constantine) empires it would be a joke. That's why I am saying we should not argue for this kind of topic. Other thing is obi2canibetal don't know anything about Sri Lanka. He lives in Western country and trying to analyse Sri Lanka from internet. In Sri Lanka many people feel the rajarata is the kingdom and Anuradhapura, Pollonnaruwa are administrative centers. In many local references about kings who rules from 543BC-1215 are introduced as rulers of Rajarata. Rajarata (raja-king, rata-country or kingdom).

Also you must watch Rajarata page created by obi2canibetal.

Rajarata (Raja = king, rata = country, or preferably land, thus the Land of Kings) is the name given to the region of Sri Lanka from which monarchs ruled the country from approximately the 5th Century BCE to the early 13th Century CE. It is centered around the ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka. Uttaradesa is the northern portion of Rajarata which includes the Jaffna peninsula. Now he is playing a game. So do I needs to argue whether it is a kingdom or anything else(anyone haven't proposed what it is) with a someone who have little knowledge on Sri Lanka and no knowledge on Sinhala ? --Himesh84 (talk) 09:23, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

CSD tag removal warnings[edit]

Hi! Thank you for the putting the csd tag back on Knight Legends as the user that removed the tag has not made any arguments for its removal. I am writing here to let you know that the user you warned at User talk:VanessaLu92 is not actually the creator the page. Only the page's creator is technically not allowed to remove the tag, while anyone else may do so but most provide a reason for it. Another user made the same mistake as you, so I am writing just to hopefully provide a reminder that when using the uw-speedy tags be sure to check to make sure they created the page. Cheers. --Odie5533 (talk) 04:10, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the note.
I used a standard template (in Huggle), which seems to just assume anyone deleting a CSD tag needlessly is the page creator. --04:12, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

removal of derogatory remarks from kamal salibi's page.[edit]

I removed the remarks because they are viewed as derogatory. Kamal Salibi was not only an outstanding professor, but an incredibly intelligent scholar and his legacy should not be downgraded by some pompous inaccurate, internet flously with no intimate knowledge of the man. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.2.22.179 (talk) 04:09, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

The content you deleted may not have been kind to Dr. Salibi, but it was reliably sourced and therefore shouldn't be deleted because of your personal opinion. On Wikipedia, what the sources say dictates what stays. If you'd still like to contest the inclusion of this content, start a discussion on the article's talk page. --Jprg1966 (talk) 04:14, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Hello Jprg1966, please feel free to weigh in on the discussion regarding the Kamal Salibi edits, here. Thanks. Yazan (talk) 16:42, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
I appreciate your notice, although I'm not sure how much I have to add to the discussion (as I am clueless about the topic). I reverted the edits because I was not satisfied with the rationale for their removal. I trust you to abide by the proper Wiki procedures here. And I have also said on WP:AN3 that I'm OK letting the editor continue unpunished if they play by the rules. --Jprg1966 (talk) 16:46, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks Jprg1966. I appreciate your patience and AGF. I think we've reached a reasonable compromise on the language, that I've gone ahead and implemented in the article. Do let me know if you have any concerns with that. Other than that, have a lovely day! Cheers! Yazan (talk) 17:29, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

I know you're only trying to help. I'm sorry it seems like as soon as you start editing you get hit with a ton of rules. There's a tradeoff between comprehensiveness and orderliness that needs to take place here. That's why we have the guidelines about notability. Just because the articles on episodes don't belong (and who knows, maybe an admin will overrule me and keep them) doesn't mean there aren't things you can't do.

Mercury Poisoning[edit]

I think you could have left the link to Bhasma in the see also of Mercury Poisoning. Bhasma and pishti are a common ingredient in Ayurvedic and Unani medicine systems. The heavy metals are "purified" in ancient method, such as dipping in milk, cows urine, ghee, buttermilk....etc. They are then mixed with sulphur, or some herbal extract (Tulsi juice...etc) or powder and it is then heated for several days with burning cow dung. The result is some calcination. and as such it can be absorbed by human intestines. It is considered "safe for human consumption" in India only. However, long time use if mercury bhasma (the most common bhasma) can lead to mercury poisoning. Please note that many millions of people self administer these over the counter drugs (without medical supervision). I have an idea, that adding a link to Mercury poisoning on the Bhasma page would have lead to outrage and caused more trouble, so I added a link to Bhasma on Mercury poisoning instead. It is that what you consider not constructive? Sir, what do you think? 78.94.33.52 (talk) 10:18, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Addendum: I suffered myself from mercury poisoning after taking a medicine called Mahayograj Guggulu for 5 years. It was an Ayurvedic medicine intended for joint pain and rheumatoid athritis. As a result I suffered from seizures and other neurological damage. My Ayurvedic doctor should have warned me about the side effects, and have me switched to Yograj Guggulu (the same medicine minus the bhasmas and pishtis), but for some reason he didn't. There was no warning on the packaging either. The mercury blood levels were only detected once I travelled to a Western country and had my blood checked for it. 78.94.33.52 (talk) 10:32, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes, you are right. I added a section "Toxidity" to Bhasma and also stated a discussion on it's talk page. Seasonal Greetings.78.94.33.52 (talk) 12:22, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Saraiki language.[edit]

Dear some one is writting wrong information about Saraiki Language. Kindly confirm these.This is pasted in so many pages. What is this?

Language[edit]

Dialects of Punjabi

Following are the demographics of the Rajan pur district, by spoken language:

Inhabitants of Rajan pur District speak a great variety of Punjabi dialects, although few of these dialects are called as separate language “Saraiki”, but because of good and loving nature of people there is no distinction or hate among different dialects and have a mix culture of Great (North and South) Punjab.

  • Derawali (Mainly)
  • Majhi or standard (Sizeable population in cities also in newly cultivated areas)
  • Raangri (A mixture of Punjabi and Urdu spoken by sizeable population in cities)
  • Riasti (Border areas near Rahimyar khan district)
  • Thalochi (Border areas near Muzafargarh district)

Other Languages include:

  • Urdu is mother tongue of few people but being national language is spoken and understood by the sizeable population.
  • English is also understood and spoken by the educated elite.
  • Baluchi is also spoken by sizeable population in the district.
  • Sindhi is also spoken by few population in the Sindh province border areas.

Edits[edit]

Hello,

I made an edit to the description when reviewing the Little Three Defintions; I didn't see how that public safety tidbit was relevant at all in the preliminary description of the university.

See the other two Little Three universities and notice that there is no Public Safety section randomly allocated in the first bullets of the Wiki. It seems rather out of place.

Page moves[edit]

Unfortunately, rules of Wikipedia do not provide personal sanctions for ignorant mass actions with misleading summaries. A good Wikipedian always cites a concrete rule and never says anything like per MOS. The only thing I can do is this request to exterminate all your page moves since December 7, 2012. I hope that you'll become wiser and will cease to think that you are better MoS expert than hundreds of users who edited and watched numerous "Anglo-" and "Italo-" articles and universally preferred the hyphen, before your advent. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 20:01, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Excuse me? If you're going to lecture me on what a "good Wikipedian" is, you should probably first internalize WP:AGF. I don't think I've ever described another editor's good-faith actions as "ignorant." I did not claim to be better than the "hundreds of users" who edited those articles. I had thought there was an oversight in many of these pages regarding the hyphen. My summaries for these moves were not misleading; apparently you were not satisfied with their specificity. And while we're talking about "concrete rules," why would you not include in this message the concrete rule you think I ignored? Instead of making this about the specific rules regarding page moves and titles, you've chosen to lament how little power you have to sanction me for easily reverted and ultimately harmless page edits.
I encourage you to re-read what Elen of the Roads wrote to you on September 28:

On the English Wikipedia, calling another editor anything uncomplimentary can be a breach of the policy on personal attacks and is best avoided. Sentences that start "you are a...." are not appropriate when uncomplimentary. If you feel a user is making bad edits - and it seems that you often have a point here - the way to express that is "these edits are not good because....(no source/misinterprets source/doesn't make sense/ect)." Discuss only what the content should be - make no comment about the competence, intelligence, motivation or attractiveness of the other editor, unless you want to say something nice about them.

If you can demonstrate to me the reason you believe the pages' titles were correct before my edits, I'd be happy to change them back. --Jprg1966 (talk) 20:41, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
The relevant provision in MOS:ENDASH says Wrong: Franco–British rivalry; "Franco" is a combining form, not independent; use a hyphen: Franco-British rivalry. If you could rework your moves to be consistent with that, it would be greatly appreciated. We get enough trouble using en dashes where concensus says they belong; using "per MOS" to justify more than that is a bad idea. – Dicklyon (talk) 03:01, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

section headings spacing, blank lines, template name case, and encoding characters[edit]

I noticed your edits partly because they contradict similar kinds of edits that are likely done by other editors.

While section headings may have spaces between the heading text and the equals signs or not have them, I prefer spaces for readability while some editors may prefer nonspacing for server storage compactness. When new talk sections are created by clicking a "New section" tab link, MediaWiki spaces them. I suggest leaving the spacing the way it's found, unless inconsistent within a page.

Template names officially begin with a capital letter but usually aren't typed that way. My understanding is that the latter adds a burden on the servers as they must translate from the latter to the former, making the capitalized first initial preferred.

Replacing ".2F" with the slash it represents when done within link text likewise burdens the servers. Hovering the mouse shows that a server translates the slash back to .2F before the link can be followed. That is likely to prevent a link from being misunderstood as a link to a subpage separated by a slash.

When sections are consecutive with nothing in between except perhaps a blank line, I used to omit the blank line, but then I noticed persistent addition of blank lines by other editors, and so now I add it, too. It has the benefit of readability in edit mode.

Invitation to look at edits on IQ reference chart[edit]

I see the article IQ reference chart has been tagged for expert review since October 2012. As part of a process of drafting a revision of that article in my user sandbox, I am contacting all Wikipedians who have edited that article since early 2009 for whom I can find a user talk page.

I have read all the diffs of all the edits committed to the article since the beginning of 2009 (since before I started editing Wikipedia). I see the great majority of edits over that span have been vandalism (often by I.P. editors, presumably teenagers, inserting the names of their classmates in charts of IQ classifications) and reversions of vandalism (sometimes automatically by ClueBot). Just a few editors have referred to and cited published reliable sources on the topic of IQ classification. It is dismaying to see that the number of reliable sources cited in the article has actually declined over the last few years. To help the process of finding reliable sources for articles on psychology and related topics, I have been compiling a source list on intelligence since I became a Wikipedian in 2010, and I invite you to make use of those sources as you revise articles on Wikipedia and to suggest further sources for the source on the talk pages of the source list and its subpages. Because the IQ reference chart article has been tagged as needing expert attention for more than half a year, I have opened discussion on the article's talk page about how to fix the article, and I welcome you to join the discussion. The draft I have in my user sandbox shows my current thinking about a reader-friendly, well sourced way to update and improve the article. I invite your comments and especially your suggestions of reliable sources as the updating process proceeds. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 20:56, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Pamella D'Pella - Advise[edit]

The person who blanked the page is the main contributor and creator - so on the one hand should that not be allowed? It's one of the speedy tags..And all the content is either unsourced or from IMDB which is not considered a suitable source for BLP. So I'm wondering if I should go back, blank the page and request a speedy = or not - She is an actress who should probably have an entry and should she be able to request her page get deleted? Should I instead source info for the page and make sure it is kept? -- 🍺 Antiqueight confer 20:16, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't know they did that. Theoretically, the main contributor blanking the page would qualify for G7 speedy deletion. Let us see if we can engage this editor to create a neutral, well-sourced article in AfC. That's my two pennies. --Jprg1966 (talk) 20:23, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
I didn't until I looked again - there were enough contributors in the preceding pages that I took it to be an unexplained blanking. But when I looked again, further back this was the user who created the page and is the main contributor. So I wasn't sure what to do and then you commented so I figured a second opinion would be good. I'll go ask why they can't get the article sourced - there is at least an official website for the woman and there must be new reports of her.. What would be needed to make a BLP sufficiently sourced? (PS, I'm watching here for the moment..)-- 🍺 Antiqueight confer 20:27, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Ideally, the official website would not be used as a source. Newspapers, magazines, and books independent of the subject are much better because they are less likely to be promotional. I'm not an expert on BLP sourcing, but WP:SELFPUB seems like a relevant guideline. --Jprg1966 (talk) 20:34, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
I know the website can't be used to show notability but can't it be used for personal details? Meanwhile someone else just undid the blanking again..What is the correct course of action - since he is the creator he is entitled to blank it?-- 🍺 Antiqueight confer 21:00, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
I guess flag it for G7 speedy deletion. See what an admin thinks. --Jprg1966 (talk) 21:56, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

ENTERPRISE page[edit]

Corrected and added references from the FAA History of aircraft use of the N callsigns to the page. Jefferies, who was quoted in the original article, evidently was NEVER a pilot...Use of Nx on US aircraft has not been done since 1950 and NC was not used for civilian or commercial aircraft. The "C" stood for airworthiness...in this case, "standard". Other letters used were R, L and X for Restricted, Limited, and eXperimental, respectively. Also something I did not include or correct but Russia does/did not use CC CC for their aircraft. The prefixes RA and RF are assigned to Russia.

Disambiguation of link to Broughton on article Wade's Causeway[edit]

Hi, you have edited Wade's Causeway and asked for a disambigutaion for "Broughton" link in the article. My understanding is that the Broughton referenced is no longer a current-day settlement, it does not appear on Google Maps or my current OS map of the area, but appears to exist now only as a legacy parish, with the village/hamlet/township having disappeared. Would you prefer to unlink this entirely or redlink to a not yet created article?

Hasty judgement by IP editor?[edit]

I hope it's not bad form to post here, but I noticed you left a message on the talk page of an IP editor who has make a quick judgement (against my position) on an edit raised at ANI (Andrew Gilligan). He's entitled to do so, but it's hard to see how he could have read all the discussion on the talk page, with the associated sources, in the few minutes between the issue being raised and his edit of the article. Indeed, discussion on ANI had just kicked off. Naturally, I feel aggrieved because I thought I had made a very, very strong case against the position of the other IP editor who wanted the text removed. Would you look at the issue?

AutoEd changes to Pseudoscience[edit]

Greetings Jprg1966, I noticed some of the changes you made with AutoEd to the article Pseudoscience may not have been the best. One broke a url see line 140 section. Several of the others changed every word of journal and magazine articles to capitals. For smaller works like articles only the first word of the title is capitalized. Here is the diff. Please use care and review each change when using a script or automated editor. I bring this comment as only minor and in the best of spirit as I use AWB and have found some guidance from other editors helpful. If you disagree about article title capitalization please respond, references are a particular editing interest of mine and I would like to get them right and follow policy and consensus. Best wishes and thank you for your substantial contributions to WP. - - MrBill3 (talk) 07:34, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi, MrBill3. Can you please specify which URL was broken? In the line 140 section, I only see a Google Books URL that was changed (but still works as before). Sorry for the unintended disturbance. --Jprg1966 (talk) 07:41, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
My bad, the link does still work. My internet can be flaky. What about caps for articles, am I mistaken? Is it generally flexible leading to leaving it as is most common for the article or is there a consensus on format? MOS:CT isn't entirely clear to me. Also aren't templates capitalized? I thought putting in templates without capitalizing the first word caused extra server work. Thanks for all your work and sorry about my mistake. - - MrBill3 (talk) 07:50, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
Hey, mistakes happen. You were gracious in your opening note and I didn't take it as an attack.
I honestly don't know about caps for articles. The only guideline I see is for titles of "works," which encourages full capitalization. In the case of {{cite}} capitalization, I typically use wikEd for my citations, and wikEd does not insert caps (although I know some services do). Do you know where it recommends capitalization for technical reasons? I don't see anything in the template:citation page. --Jprg1966 (talk) 01:45, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Regarding caps for articles, my personal preference is first word only (and first word after any punctuation). I base this on the distinction between longer and shorter works (italics vs quotation marks) in MOS, WP:QUOTEMARK. It also is somewhat supported by the PubMed format and this is sometimes transcluded by Bots. Regarding caps for template names, I may be a victim of wikirumour, Help:Template actually specifically says, "an initial capital is not necessary" Help:Template#General. I thank you for your cordiality given my beginning with an erroneous accusation of link breaking and for taking the time to discuss these matters. I feel I should again apologize for promulgating the idea of needing to cap templates without doing the research. Thank you for your input on capitalization of article titles. I think it is of some importance and continue to seek the opinions of the WP community. Best. - - MrBill3 (talk) 02:04, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I do see many pages where the minimal caps is used—as you said, some medical article titles are quite long. Perhaps it is something of a "page consensus" issue. So I will try to see to it that a page consensus is not disturbed that way. And I accept your apology without hesitation. You assumed good faith throughout. --Jprg1966 (talk) 02:10, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Military history additions[edit]

Hello Jprg1966, thanks for the note on my talkpage. I am aware of the need for inline citations but in case of the Italian Army brigades and regiments I am not sure how to use them, as the information I added to the articles comes from the official homepage of the Italian Army. On the homepage every corps, division, brigade and regiment has its own subpage with lots of information (i.e. [2] the history section of the Mechanized Brigade Pinerolo). For the wiki articles I translated and summarized these history sections, expanded them (when useful/appropiate) with the information found in the regiments history sections (i.e. [3] the history section of the 9th Infantry Regiment Bari) and then wiki linked them to the events mentioned in the text. Basically about 80% or more of the history additions comes from one source - namely the units official website. If you look at the articles I have edited, you will find that I always put a link at the bottom (under Sources) that leads to the units Italian Army homepage. I did this because I did not want to put the same inline citation at the end of each paragraph - always leading to the same site on the Italian Army homepage. If you happen to have an idea on how to improve the system I used, please let me know. best, noclador (talk) 10:28, 17 November 2013 (UTC)

I have a suggestion. If you don't want to have the page littered with the same [1] everywhere, you can use it maybe once per section visibly, and then <!-- hide it --> anywhere else that reference applies. That way, editors will be able to see what the reference is when they are editing, while readers will not be confused. How does that sound? --Jprg1966 (talk) 01:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Yep, that's sounds better! I will add refs over the next few days and play around with them a bit to see which way is the best. cheers, noclador (talk) 08:19, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Flora Philip deletion[edit]

I am a new editor who created this pages as part of the "Women in Science Editathon" at the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Regarding my sprint biomechanics page[edit]

Hello, Jprg- I apologize for all the confusion surrounding my page, I had originally created it for a school assignment (which is why I had a bunch of edits trying to add my name to the site, so I could prove to my professor that it was my page). I was writing up a grant document that contains a great deal of information from this page that I had originally created, so I wanted to remove the content until my grant had been approved. This may just be me being paranoid, but I did not want them to randomly come across this page and think I copied a bunch of stuff off of wikipedia ;) I will be putting it back up once all the paperwork goes though in a few weeks.

Included an edit summary, thanks for the tip, can you help me with one other issue?[edit]

I went back and redid my edit with a summary, thanks for the heads-up! I have an issue that I don't know how to solve. I created a page and then requested its creation. Two users then edited it to clean it up in places/make changes as they saw fit. One of those users then moved the page several times, so far as I can tell with the intent of creating the page. (The edit summary is "oops" on each of the incorrect moves, until the final move which moved the page Wikipedia:Crossover experiment (chemistry) to Crossover experiment (chemistry)). Unfortunately the only thing that this last move did was create a redirect on the article page Crossover experiment (chemistry) to Wikipedia:Crossover experiment (chemistry). Do you know how to fix this (such that the text of the article just appears on the article page Crossover experiment (chemistry)? Any help would be appreciated. - update! another user is helping me with this and it should be cleared up soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akbartholomew (talkcontribs) 04:57, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Cheadle Primary School[edit]

Just a tip - you can't use A7 on educational establishments. While high schools are usually considered notable (but it's custom not policy), and primary schools (barring exceptional circumstances) are not, it has to be prod or AfD. The other CSD criteria can be applied to schools - copyvio, spam, no content, hoax or vandalism - if applicable. But not A7. It doesn't say so in Twinkle or PC (so far as I know), but it does on the actual template. I deleted this one as G7 per a comment on the talk page from the author.

Editing of Bollywood 100 Crore Club[edit]

Hello, I'm BBINDFAN (talk) 15:55, 26 December 2013 (UTC) and the reason why I removed content from Bollywood Hundred Crore Club, I removed the 400 crore club section, is because of Wikipedia rules. Several sites have been saying that Chennai Express has made it into the 400 crore club (worldwide), while other are saying it only made it into the 300 crore club. So many different sites were reporting different numbers. That is why, several months ago Wikipedia came to a consensus to only use one source, that is Box Office India (since it is accurate and trustworthy). According to Box Office India, Chennai Express has only grossed 395 crore. So basically, I was just following the rules that were put in place (that we can only use Box Office India as a source). Thanks for understanding. So I have reverted your edit. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message. :)

Also, I have to talk to you about some films that are listed in the 100 crore club, but Box Office India has said they aren't...(Race 2, Grand Masti, Son of Sardaar and Singham).

William Harold Cox -- you sent me a note stating you edited my changes to his stub. What did you edit? You also said that I didn't cite the statement that you omitted, but that stub currently contains no citations whatsoever. If I remember correctly, probably the only thing I added to Cox's stub was that JFK and Miss. Senator James O. Eastland hatched out a deal for Kennedy to appoint the racist Cox to the southern district federal bench in exchange for Eastland's cooperation on various pieces of legislation.

Removing spaces in cite templates[edit]

Hi, Jprg1966. Thanks for your edit to The Great Gatsby article. I noticed that you are removing spaces that separate the parameters in the cite templates. Although there's no set convention to use or not use the spaces, there are some benefits to keeping them such as ease of reading and better line breaking in editors. This later property is very important on mobile devices that have small screens. The only upside to removing them I am aware of is shortened the file length. In my opinion, the benefits of keeping (or adding them) outweigh the benefit of removing them. I think as mobile devices become even more important, this will become more evident. Jason Quinn (talk) 20:21, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

I had not thought of the effect on mobile editing. The thing that I strive for on pages is consistency, so it is fair to keep the one-space pattern where it exists I suppose. Thanks for raising your concern. --Jprg1966 (talk) 16:59, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism on the reliable sources noticeboard?[edit]

Hi

I'm not a registered Wikipedian, but have edited occasionally over the years. In the past few months I've extensively edited two articles, revising an earlier "History" section I wrote in State income tax, and adding a "History" section to Korean drama. I've been active on several Wikipedia meta-pages recently in the wake of the rapid deletion of a section I added to a different article, Secret Garden (TV series). You appear to have interpreted a long post of mine to the reliable sources noticeboard as vandalism. I'm not clear on whether this is because of its length, because I'm angry, or because, in making that post, I first noticed the instruction to link to external web pages referenced, so went back and inserted links into a previous post.

I've read the document explaining what vandalism is. I'd appreciate it if you'd connect the dots for me, because I don't see what I did that was vandalism. If on further examination you actually agree with me, please remove the tag from the post in question, and get rid of the talk page you set up linked to the IP address of the university computer I posted from.

In any event, banning this computer is not going to stop me from whatever ostensible vandalism I'm engaged in, because I can simply switch to a different computer. (I use this particular machine a lot partly for convenience and partly, lately, because I've been ill and don't want to spread the germs around, but it's not a big deal.) Most of my more substantial work on Wikipedia is accompanied by posts to the relevant talk pages, which I sign as I'm signing this one, complete with discouraged e-mail address (oh, is *that* why you think I'm a vandal?); if for some reason I need to be tracked and stopped, that's a more effective tool. More effective still might be convincing me to stop doing whatever it is that worries you.

(Also, of course, it's at least possible that people other than me edit Wikipedia from this computer.)

I used to volunteer heavily in administrative areas of Usenet. (So you can easily verify that I'm me, and not inviting spam to some innocent third party's e-mail. And you could have e-mailed me your complaint.) I've been tempted to fill some of that time with Wikipedia instead. It's becoming clear that I'm actually something of a poor fit for Wikipedia (I like to do original research, and my standards of evidence diverge spectacularly from Wikipedia's), but accusations like this sure help discourage me.

What? I never accused you of vandalism. The long post on RS/N you may be referring to was automatically labeled "possible vandalism" by the edit filter. There is no need to take a combative and accusatory attitude, although I do appreciate you seeking clarification. There is, additionally, a notice I placed on your user talk page simply stating the host of your IP address. This is to alert other editors to the fact that multiple users may be editing from it. You are not under any Wikipedia sanction and don't need to be, as far as I can tell. --Jprg1966 (talk) 21:56, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
OK, looks like I jumped to a conclusion. Here's the steps: I saw my post tagged "possible vandalism" and was disturbed; then I noticed that this IP address suddenly had a talk page, and wondered what was being said there; *then* I got this warning saying that *due* to vandalism, this IP address might be blocked. Oh, and that warning was attributed to you in the talk page's history. So yes, I assumed you'd done the whole thing. My apologies. I do get very angry when accused of things that are totally out of character for me.
How can I find out what triggered the edit filter?

All-Star Records edit[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you recently reverted my changes to the page for All-Star Records. I'm not too sure why you made these changes. Don Omar's former record label was called All-Star Records, but it is now known by Orfanato Music group. With that being the case, I thought it would be ok to create a page for All-Star Recors from Newmarket, Ontario. Please let me know if you will revert the changes or if I should create a new page. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.129.31.125 (talk) 16:20, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

"Global Advanced Research"[edit]

Hello Jprg1966. I came across this edit: please excuse me for removing the reference to that article from Global Advanced Research Journal of History, Political Science and International Relations. Global Advanced Research is a club that churns out a million journals and spams inboxes with invitations to publish in them. It's a fishy outfit to say the least, and I'll cite you two snippets from their spam. Here's one:

Introducing ‘Global Advanced Research Journal of Management and Business Studies (GARJMBS) ISSN: 2315-5086 With Impact Factor

Dear Colleague,

Am please to inform to you that our April 2014 Issue is out you can view it with this link. http://garj.org/garjmbs/content/2014/April.htm

And here's another:

GARJMBS is seeking energetic, qualified and high profile researchers to submit there manuscript in Microsoft word format to: garjmbs@garj.org garjmbs1@gmail.com , garjmbs@garjournals.org submit.garjmbs@garj.org

I've cleaned up the formatting; it looks much worse in reality. Anyway, I'm not a colleague of theirs--I'm nowhere near business and management. There is nothing academic or peer-reviewed about these outfits, which all appear to come out of Bangladesh or so, and their website is insightful: the submission fee is $450.

In other words, these are not proper academic journals, and any time you run into them you should probably consider removing them--they are a shit stain on the nice white underwear of academia. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 14:46, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I did not know they were a junk journal. Thanks for the notice. I'll try to avoid them in the future. --Jprg1966 (talk) 17:16, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks. Yeah, every now and then I follow up on their spam (from "garjournals" usually; for some reason or other our administrator won't simply block all this crap from that and similar domains) by checking to see if Wikipedia has citations. Last time before this it was someone who had been spamming their own articles into Wikipedia articles--doubly pathetic if these are the journals one gets published in.

Work vs. Publisher?[edit]

Hi Jprg1966. I noticed that you changed the citations for Shooting of Michael Brown, changing a parameter name from 'publisher' to 'work' for web cites. Is there a guideline somewhere the establishes that as s Wikipedia standard? I looked at WP:CIT, but it didn't really help. Many thanks.- MrX 21:48, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

It's kinda tough sometimes. Newspapers should be "work," while news organizations are "publishers." The "work" field italicizes the text, signifying that it is a "work" the way WP:MOS recommends italicizing (e.g., newspaper, book, movie), whereas "publisher" keeps the text regular. In general I would go with publisher default and make "work" only the things that Wikipedia recommends be italicized in body text. --Jprg1966 (talk) 22:04, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
BulbBOh, that explains it. All this time I've been putting the publication in the publisher field and adding '' '' to italicize it. I learned something new. Thanks again.- MrX 22:23, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Experts, Opinions and all the others[edit]

Your articles on this subject are misleading and down right incorrect. Read the entire books/articles before you make a citation. And if you are discussing Hebrew scripture, know Hebrew. To say that modern translations no longer use a particular word or name is of no use to people researching the ancient and original names and terms and places. The line below speaks as if it is a fact and the citation [19] actually says there is no such Caananite myth about a fallen god but in the Old Testament the Hebrews spoke of such a one! And in context, this is a prophecy by Hebrew prophet for Hebrews and in it a king of Bavel and many kings to come is mentioned. You have translated Heyl-el ben Shachar as Helel ben sahar which is either a typo or you used bible hub which also mistranslates the Hebrew letter Het as Hey, although it's written correctly. The Hey and the Het look similar but are not pronounced the same. Finally, the King James version copied the Latin Vulgate. The Hebrew Heyl-El is a proper name and was not meant to be changed. But the Latin Vulgate did not want the name known and used the word lucifer which can in their own words be a noun or an adjective but not a proper noun. Citation 21 is a Hebrew codex?? Citation [22}. Cannot possibly add to your point in any way.

The term appears in the context of an oracle against a dead king of Babylon,[19] who is addressed as הילל בן שחר (hêlêl ben šāḥar),[20][21] rendered by the King James Version as "O Lucifer, son of the morning!" and by others as "morning star, son of the dawn".

J.Carl Laney has written many books no one has read, not one review on any book and to say that the King of Babylon is a man...duh.

J. Carl Laney has pointed out that in the final verses here quoted, the king of Babylon is described not as a god or an angel but as a man.[24][25]

In a nutshell, the Latin Vulgate was the first to use the word lucifer in place of the Hebrew name Heyl-el. El can mean lord or god and Heyl is the name. The next time the word is pointed to is in Hit Galut, known as the Book of Revelation. In the passages commonly thought to point to the holocaust, its noted that they had the Kokhav Shachar, kokhav means star and Shachar can mean dark, dusky, dawn, early, jetty etc.

And although modern translations use the morning star for Heyl-El, it was meant as a name or sign post in the future.

Interesting to note that Heil Hitler was the Nazi greeting but because of this deception, no one noticed.

Biddle[edit]

Biddle's critique of Goodwood is of an obsolete historiographical school, which judges Goodwood according to a post-war breakthrough paradigm the British weren't using for very good reasons, is used to create a spurious difference between US and British-Canadian tactics and operations and ignores the fact that Cobra was a copy of British methods. The Germans concentrated around Caen because they couldn't afford not to, not because they were ubersoldiers. Goodwood was an attrition operation, not a breakthrough attempt and there is evidence that it's real purpose was to encircle the two SS Panzer Corps.Keith-264 (talk) 18:30, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm not wedded to Biddle's narrative over another, but I thought it might still bear mentioning. The book that he wrote this analysis in won a number of awards, so it's not like a random thing I plucked out of nowhere. Do you think it is so unrepresentative of scholarly opinion that even having an opposing view would be misleading to the reader? I'm not an expert on military history, so I'm just asking. --Jprg1966 (talk) 02:15, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
No, not at all, which is why I tidied it a bit; if you want it in specifically that's a decision for you. I know what it's like for someone to stamp all over work which is added in good faith. When I read the analysis section again, I thought that the specifics Biddle refers to, could well do with a direct reference. Buckley has recently published a book on the late-war British army, which consolidates a lot of the empirical research of the last twenty-years or so but the problem for me is that the US operations aren't integrated into a comprehensive synthesis, so that the context of both ends of the bridgehead and how they influenced each other (and the Germans) gets left out. Considering that the US OHs are free online, this seems a commercial and polemical phenomenon. The real purpose of Goodwood is obviously important in a judgement of its success and the idea that Falaise was never the target is quite new - someone writing a history of the 53rd Division, reckons that Goodwood was a pincer movement with Greenline and Pomegranate west of Caen. I'm rather interested in what he can make of the idea when the book gets into print, because the articles on those operations is a patchwork of what I could find and is quite unsatisfactory. Anyway I look forward to your contributions. RegardsKeith-264 (talk) 08:26, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
