Geoff Cameron played for Bayside United not Bayside FC under coach Stacey DeCastro as you will see in the attached link, if you click "read more", under youth club.

Atatürk[edit]

Hi

what kind of reliable source do you expect in changing the pronounciation of mustafa kemal atatürk?

the name is kemal, kemal is pronounced kemal as in english

the name Cemal is a different name, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cemal_Gürsel here the right ipa is given its pronounced DJEMAL, because C is pronounced DJ [dʒeˈmaɫ ɟyɾˈsel];

as you see in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_Turkish,_Azerbaijani_and_Turkmen

there is no ä either in turkish ipa [musˈtäfä ceˈmäl ätäˈtyɾc]

so which language is portrayed?

Kemal is pronounced K as in Kind

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiceless_velar_stop

and in ipa it is the letter K, not C, in turkish AND english

and the ä are not right either, it is A, as it is written and pronounced, nothing strange

Feel free to reopen the request, but if you include the detail level you gave above, it is far moer likely to be accepted. --Mdann52talk to me! 15:53, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Frank Thelen, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Doo. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:55, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

User:Mdann52 bot is tagging incorrectly[edit]

I found a bunch of beauty pageant articles that I believe are being erroneously tagged "{{Pageant-bio-stub}}". The pages (for example Miss Dominican Republic 1963) are not about the winner, but all the contestants for that year, so I think should not be tagged as a bio. (perhaps "pageant-stub" instead). Some also have obsolete persondata (I don't know if that's due to this bot or not?).

There are quite a few (see the letter 'M' at Category:Beauty pageant contestant stubs), so if you could get a bot to fix them again that would be ideal :D.

Thanks, —Msmarmalade (talk) 10:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

@Msmarmalade: hence why I have stopped the bot. It appears the code line I set up was too sensitive, but I'll fix this before I restart the bot. I will also run through with AWB later and fix the errors. --Mdann52talk to me! 11:13, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
According to it's page, the bot is still running - also I've noticed some edits since I last messaged you. —Msmarmalade (talk) 10:33, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
That is a standard template, which I can not change that particular section of. Additionally, Special:Contributions/Mdann52_bot shows it stopped editing shortly after you brought this to my attention, and has not resumed editing since. I manually stopped the bot at 1PM, which was when I noticed your message. For future reference, if you edit the bot's talk page, it will stop straight away, as is described on the user page. --Mdann52talk to me! 12:43, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

File:Community of Democracies Logo.jpg[edit]

The current jpg has poor quality. Their website uses http://www.community-democracies.org/App_Themes/cod/images/CoD_logo.png. I suggest uploading that instead. PrimeHunter (talk) 15:04, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Michael Henderson[edit]

Please don't restore the birthdate. It is a WP:BLP issue and we should assume good faith that the editor is who they say they are. You mentioned a consensus to keep it in. Where is the consensus? The only thing I saw was at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Removal of information from Michael Henderson and there is nothing there. Thanks. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 20:09, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

@CambridgeBayWeather: I fail to comprehend how this is a BLP issue. The entry is sourced, and per WP:DOB, as it is covered in multiple sources, inclusion shouldn't be an issue. The benefit of directing them through WP:OTRS is that it is easy to verify identity, simpler than finding the relevant on-wiki venues, and reverting is a blockable offence, so prevents edit wars such as this. I am always sceptical in cases where the user in question does not email us on request, as it (IMO) can suggest someone is impersonating them, or just messing us around pretending to be someone they aren't. Additionally, at the time of the revert, there was consensus (per WP:BRD and comments made at ANI) to include the material.

TLDR: OTRS is the next venue for this, and consensus existed when i made the edits. --Mdann52talk to me! 20:48, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

It appears that I'm not the only person to see this as a BLP. Look at the remarks made on closing the ANI section. There is no harm to Wikipedia by assuming that the editor is Henderson and thus removing the date. They have been told to take it to OTRS. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 21:19, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Unless your skepticism has a concrete justification or if getting it wrong has actual adverse consequences for the person or the article, the site-wide AGF guideline says what to do in when in doubt. Can removing the DOB harm the subject? Farfetched. What is the encyclopedic value of the DOB? Not much--the article is fine without it. There was certainly not consensus at ANI to include the DOB, as a numerical majority (maybe not enough for consensus) of commenters supported removal or appeared to be ok with it. OTRS has enough workload with real problems to have to be bothered about stuff like this. 173.228.123.145 (talk) 22:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Werieth ANI closure[edit]

I kind of wish you hadn't closed that--there were still some pending issues and it's best to keep the discussion in one place. I may at some point ask for it to be reopened or transferred to a sub-page; let me know if you have any objections. Thanks. 173.228.123.145 (talk) 22:03, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

I closed it to prevent too much of the WP:DUCK evidence becomming public knowlegde, as it is best to retain some. In terms of the CU, that is being dealt with over at Meta, so it is kinda out of our hands now. If you wish for that section to be reopened, I will happily move it to WP:AN, as I feel it is no longer an "incident" and more of a proposal. --Mdann52talk to me! 07:07, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
