RfC in Dave Brat[edit]

As someone who previously participated in the article Dave Brat, I am letting you know a RfC has been opened on an issue regarding that article. BlueSalix (talk) 18:30, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Your interpretation of WP:BLP is incorrect. The burden of proof means that the content needs to be verifiable, which in this case it is:
 The [[Wikipedia:Verifiability#Burden of evidence|burden of evidence]] for any edit rests with the person who adds or restores material.

List of wars involving the United States edit warring[edit]

Hello. I'd like to start off by telling you that your previous edits to the article have been reversed due to the fact that they are inaccurate, and I'd like to describe to you how. There has been no regime change in the United States from its inception during the Revolutionary War to the modern times. Therefore, adding slots to distinguish the eras of government in which each conflict has taken place is not a logical edit. I know how it feels to be blocked for mistakes you are unaware of, so I'd really like to avoid going down that path. But now you know, and if you continue edit warring, I'll have no choice but to do just that. I apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused, thank you.

  • THEN TAKE OUT THE SECTIONS!!!! Don't randomly add back in all the content I vetted out. And please save your empty block threats. Lithistman (talk) 02:40, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Dave Brat bet[edit]

I'll take you up on that bet! :-P $10 that, assuming Brat wins, it's still there by 11/4/2015? Λυδαcιτγ 04:27, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

  • I doubt that it will go out without fight, but go out it will, at some point. It's just such an utterly trivial thing: newsy, not encyclopedic. Lithistman (talk) 02:52, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

[Removed nonsense templating of an established editor. Don't do this again.] --Stefan2 (talk) 17:47, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

I've converted the embedded image to a link - it's just a colon at the start of the wikicode. This avoids the NFC issue, but it's a bit more visible than commenting it out or removing it entirely. Unfortunately it doesn't work as a link when there are wikilinks within the caption as well (they get linked, rather than the image). I hope this is slightly useful to you. Andy Dingley (talk) 17:59, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Andy. I still feel like this is pettifoggery of the highest order, given that it's in a sandbox, where I'm trying to rewrite the article. Nothing in the NFCC that I've been able to find mentions this type of situation in any way, so I'm not sure why it's even a problem. Lithistman (talk) 23:21, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

List of wars involving the United States[edit]

For the content that was removed, was it relocated to a more appropriate article or completely deleted. If it has been deleted, then can a new article titled "List of military battles, skirmishes, and expeditions involving the United States" or something else be created?

  • @Mitchumch: This very issue has been discussed on the article's talkpage. Take a look at that discussion, and see what you think. Lithistman (talk) 17:59, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
