Newfoundland and Labrador[edit]

I understand what you are doing and agree that is the title that article should be at, but a copy and paste move over a redirect loses edit history as a consequence. I'll place a request to delete the redirect to make way for the move. Hwy43 (talk) 04:52, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. I didn't realize that would be the case. I'm doing little things to the remaining provinces/territories that are hopefully time savers when it comes to cleaning them up properly. Thought this would be one of them. Mattximus (talk) 04:55, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
I've requested what I anticipate will be an uncontroversial technical move. This process is explained at WP:RM/TR. Cheers, Hwy43 (talk) 05:50, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of municipalities in Nova Scotia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Halifax (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.

Tiruchirappalli FAC[edit]

Hi, would you mind having another look. Vensatry (Ping me) 06:51, 6 December 2013 (UTC) From what I've read, it's pretty good. Much better than many of the other pages for cities in Tamil Nadu. Unfortunately I do not have that much time at the moment to read the whole article (it is quite long!). If time permits I will try for another section. 15:18, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Sure you can have your own time. But could you strike out the resolved issues, so that I can understand if everything is fixed. Vensatry (Ping me) 17:16, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I've responded to your queries there. Vensatry (Ping me) 08:11, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, but I'm very busy in real life at the moment, no time as of yet to go through the whole article. So far it looks very good! The prose just needs minor clean ups, like the ones I've been making so far in the first 3 sections. Mattximus (talk) 19:07, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Hope you'll re-visit when you get time. Vensatry (Ping me) 08:28, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Hi, since your comments may have been resolved, would you mind re-visiting the page. Vensatry (Ping me) 07:04, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Hi, looks like you're back after the vacation. The nomination has been sitting up for a while, awaiting your responses. Happy new year too :) Vensatry (Ping me) 10:53, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi, sorry I've not had much time here, and to be honest, it's a bit daunting to read such a large article. I do believe it's close to pass, it just needs some minor tweaks like the ones I've been suggesting. How long before it's booted off the featured list? I will try to maybe do a section or two if time permits. Mattximus (talk) 22:00, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Thanks for the response. Though I'm not forcing, you could collapse the comments if you feel that they're addressed, else there is a chance that delegates might think they're not resolved. Two of the three reviewers who had took part earlier are yet to respond. Vensatry (Ping me) 13:31, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Falun Gong (run, just run)[edit]

Trust me. It's a bad article and it'll probably never improve. I've seen user accounts deleted over this article, ip blocks established, epic edit-wars and it never really gets any better. I'd say just try to minimize the damage by removing links into the FLG article wherever you find them. Simonm223 (talk) 19:19, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

DA Neuron diagram[edit]

Hi Mattximus, I'm planning on re-nominating the diagram I drew for FP again, but I was wondering if you could review it at your leisure prior to the nomination. I just noticed your follow-up comments on the closed FP nomination - Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/TAAR1-Dopamine neuron. I made a slightly different tweak to the image to expand upon its ability to diffuse through membranes and uploaded it to the unused png version: File:TAAR1 Amphetamine Dopamine.png (current annotated SVG version: {{Amphetamine pharmacodynamics}}).

Do you think I should use this version, or just move both entry points to the right side? Should only take me around 10 minutes to move everything if it's better on the right.

Also, thanks for all your feedback so far! It's been quite helpful in improving the image. Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained) 20:16, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Ah, also, here's the references again just incase: my file locker. Seppi333 (Insert  | Maintained)
Yes I would think it would be most logical if all amphetamine points of entry are beside/near each other. Specifically, it would reduce the number of pathway arrows that cross over each other, since I'm assuming the amphetamine that diffuses across the membrane and the amphetamine that passes through the dopamine transporter have the same pathway once inside the cell. The changes you made already considerably improve the image, so the rest is just nit-picking. Mattximus (talk) 21:19, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Codrington Library[edit]

Hi Mattximus- I have added an alternate version to my FP nomination. I hope the crop makes the presentation of the facade less ambiguous. Thanks.--Godot13 (talk) 19:52, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

FLN[edit]

Hi, I implemented the change you recommended at Wikipedia:Featured list candidates/List of currencies in North America/archive2, please can you take another look at the article? Thanks, Matty.007 16:32, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

List of tallest buildings in Portland, Oregon and crystal[edit]

As you seem to have a thing against the "future" buildings section, note WP:CRYSTAL is not applicable. I know many people are confused about what CRYSTAL means, and generally they think it is some sort of prohibition on future things. What it really is, is a prohibition from Wikipedia editors speculating. As in I can't come up with my own ideas about the future and added them into an article (in many ways CRYSTAL is repetitive of OR). But we can regurgitate the speculation about the future found in RS, which should be clear by the very first sentence of CRYSTAL: "Wikipedia is not a collection of unverifiable speculation." (emphasis added) So we can have a section entitled "Tallest under construction, approved and proposed" and not run afoul of anything. Individual entries may run afoul if not sourced, but the section itself does not. Aboutmovies (talk) 04:08, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

I have went through a few of the list of tallest buildings pages and removed approved/planned not normally because of wiki crystal ball, but because they are either completely unsourced, or the source is out of date, and the projects became stale. I would say this accounts for 95% of the cases. Consider the alternative. Every architect's plan should have it's own wiki page? What criteria would you use to say a plan is worth writing about, or just one in a million of plans that never see fruition? In going through the lists for "approved" buildings written usually around 2007 I noticed almost none were actually built or under construction 5 or 6 years later. So approved is not a criterion for inclusion. Because of this, I firmly believe that unless something is being constructed, it's speculative or worse, advertisement. Mattximus (talk) 20:40, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
"Every architect's plan should have it's own wiki page?" - No, and that's not what anyone would argue except as a strawman. Instead we generally do what we always do, reliable sources from sources independent of the topic. To which, the architect's plan would not be. Should they be removed if nothing has happened after a few years, certainly. But that's not all you did on the above list, where you removed the entire section, including one in which construction had begun, just to later be stopped. By the time you removed it and the entire section it had already been announced construction would resume, and it has. Aboutmovies (talk) 03:51, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Coeloplanidae[edit]

Please note that the species are now listed on the genus pages. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 12:26, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Yeah I did see that, but if you delete them all, then it's just a stub with nothing on it. Why not keep the links there for now, until more actual content is added. This way it's useful in the meantime. Mattximus (talk) 20:04, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Review of scallop diagram[edit]

Hi, I read your comments on my illustration of neurology of a giant scallop, and believe I have addressed all of your very good points. Any chance I can get you to vote "Support" for the image now? Am hoping so! KDS4444Talk 16:11, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

All and none.[edit]

Not sure I understand your reversion about lower-tier municipalities. If all of them are lower-tier, it should go without saying that none of them are upper tier, right? Like, if you have five cats and all of them are black, you wouldn't need to say no white ones are present. Or orange or anything. Because all cats that are present are black. Same deal, or no? InedibleHulk (talk) 21:43, October 15, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply InedibleHulk! I was hoping you would discuss to make sure my reasoning is correct. My logic is that since all municipalities are single-tier in the north, then they are either all lower-tier or all higher-tier. So you have a bifurcation, and that's why there is the phrase "upper-tier municipalities are not present" is present. So in your metaphor you have five cats and some are long haired and some are short haired. Sure they are all cats, but if you cared about the length of hair you would have to add "short hairs are not present" to "all the animals are cats". But you bring up a good point, would it be more clear to say "and all are lower-tier municipalities?" I would go for that change, just to get rid of the negative. Mattximus (talk) 00:58, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

No, you're right. Just realized I was seeing "single-tier", but reading "lower-tier". I'm not completely stupid, but when I am, I really am.
Sorry to waste your time! InedibleHulk (talk) 01:47, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
Not at all, I enjoy the collaborative aspect of wikipedia! Mattximus (talk) 01:54, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome, then. That proposed change sounds OK, by the way. InedibleHulk (talk) 03:41, October 16, 2014 (UTC)
