Speedy deletion nomination of Drei Marc[edit]

Hello Mauls,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Drei Marc for deletion, because it seems to be inappropriate for a variety of reasons.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:11, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Local Nature Reserve[edit]

Mauls, you might have looked at the talk page — or at least at the history, where my move in September was just three lines down — before unilaterally moving Local Nature Reserve back to the lower-case version. There's discussion there. Please take part. Meanwhile, I've reverted your move. Bishonen | talk 11:08, 30 July 2014 (UTC).

Strongly agree. The capitals are significant, they indicate a significance that goes beyond the meaning of the individual words, and should not have been removed. There's a difference between a "local nature reserve" and a "Local Nature Reserve". My local nature reserve is Kinder Scout – but Kinder Scout is a National Nature Reserve. This modern obsession with minimizing capital letters is a nonsense (I disagreed with WP:BIRDCON too – not all common gulls are Common Gulls) and we lose a shade of meaning – and gain nothing in return – by this weird obsession with removing capitals.

So I see you've ignored my suggestion at Talk:Local nature reserve and you're continuing to make these contentious edits before consensus has been established. Nice. Dave.Dunford (talk) 20:39, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Strongly agree with comments above. Mauls must not make these edits, unless consensus is established for their changes. I have reverted their edit to Stokenchurch Gap for the same reason. David J Johnson (talk) 13:26, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

National Character Areas and Natural Areas of England[edit]

Hi Mauls. I'm sure you changed these titles to lower case in good faith, but I think you'll find that they're officially spelt in title case by Natural England (who designate them) even in the middle of a sentence. See [1] and [2]. Would you be kind enough to revert the changes. --Bermicourt (talk) 13:31, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Absolutely agree with Bermicourt's comments above and the comments in the previous paragraph. I have reverted Mauls edits to Stokenchurch Gap, pending consensus. David J Johnson (talk) 13:22, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Links to the articles under discussion are being left whilst being debated, pending consensus, but the revert was in relation to a completely different article, national nature reserve (United Kingdom), and a correction of a link to the generic national nature reserve. There is no open discussion of the capitalisation of this article. There were also copyedit changes that were improperly reverted. Check before snap reverting! Mauls (talk) 10:34, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I did check and the article states "National Nature Reserve (United Kingdom). Please stop lecturing and discuss. David J Johnson (talk) 11:25, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
There is no discussion on the talk page for national nature reserve (United Kingdom). The previous comments related to three entirely different articles; if you want to start a discussion relating to the national nature reserve article, you are welcome to do so.
I also don't understand your claim to have checked what you were reverting - why did you point the link back to national nature reserve, the generic article rather than the UK designation? Also, why did you capitalise 'public enquiry', and why did you revert a correction of a missing apostrophe on 'inspector's decision'? You can see what you changed at [3]
Mauls (talk) 13:48, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I realise they are different articles. My concern in all articles concerned is that you seem to be obsessed with reverting titles to lower case without sufficient explanation. I really feel you should be answering the various editors concerns listed in the above paragraphs. Please don't lecture me about "starting a discussion", I have plenty of experience of editing here. Regarding "public enquiry" it can be used either way - which once again - shows your obsession with reverting to lower case. Frankly, I have more important things to do both in business and Wikipedia - but you need to answer the other contributors points. David J Johnson (talk) 16:15, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
I have already contributed multiple times to the ongoing discussion. Mauls (talk) 11:01, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
