WP:V[edit]

Hello, Mightymights.

Thanks for your edits, which are clearly made in good faith and are generally constructive.

However, you have the habit of changing content in articles, such as numbers, without making any change to the sources, as you did here. Often, the numbers you change are already sourced, so even if newer figures exist, you have to cite a newer source or keep the old content. That's per the verification policy.

Thanks. SamEV (talk) 00:49, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at Islam in Nigeria, you may be blocked from editing. Are we doing this AGAIN? You've added that Muslims make up %45 of Nigerians. Except that the source you gave doesn't say this. It says %45 of respondents to a survey were Muslim. It is, in fact very clear about that. So why do you continually revise downward Muslim population figures from countries around the world? And why do you cite sources (long pdfs with no page number given) that do not support your numbers? T L Miles (talk) 08:20, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Please see this page : http://pewforum.org/future-of-the-global-muslim-population-nigeria.aspx The 2003 Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS), estimated that Muslims made up 50.4% of Nigeria’s population. But the results of the 2008 Nigerian Demographic and Health Survey, which were made public after the release of the Pew Forum’s 2009 report, contradicted the 2003 NDHS, saying Muslims accounted for 45% of the population. Mightymights (talk) 10:23, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize pages by deliberately introducing incorrect information, as you did at Islam in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, you may be blocked from editing. You wrote that the source said 1.5% of the DRC population is Muslim, when the actual figure, which you removed, was over 10%. The source you cited, a 500+ page pdf for which you gave no citation page, CLEARLY says (pp. 25, 27, 381, 458) this was the percent of RESPONDENTS TO A SURVEY, not the percent of actual population. T L Miles (talk) 08:31, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

«the actual figure, which you removed, was over 10%» This actual figure is also the percent of respondents to a survey (outdated). Same as Nigeria (see above). Mightymights (talk) 10:15, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Religion in Africa, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Same misrepresented source for Congo T L Miles (talk) 08:41, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Same issue with [1]. Also a great deal of removal of stats for different Christian groups, consolidating them in to a single percent of population for comparison -- more favorable -- with Islam and other religious groups. T L Miles (talk) 08:59, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
You must understand that we will never know exactly what is the percent of actual population that is muslim or christian, since there aren't religious censuses in nigeria or dr congo. That's why we use the percent of respondents to a survey. Mightymights (talk) 10:28, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
As would be clear if you pointed to the actual place in the text, these are explicitly surveys of health and other social problems. They are not, nor do these sources attempt to argue, demographic samples or an attempt to extrapolate national census data, let alone religion. Hence the dramatically lower percent of responders who are Muslim. The sources you cite are explicit on these points.
So are you simply misunderstanding the sources you are using? For example, the page from which you draw religion % in the Nigerian example, is titled "Table 3.1 Background characteristics of respondents. Percent distribution of women and men age 15-49 by selected background characteristics, Nigeria 2008." On page XXV, the FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THE FIRST PAGE OF THE SUMMARY reads "The 2008 Nigeria Demographic Health Sur- vey (NDHS) is a nationally representative survey of 33,385 women age 15-49 and 15,486 men age 15-59. The 2008 NDHS is the fourth comprehen- sive survey conducted in Nigeria as part of the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) pro- gramme. The data are intended to furnish pro- gramme managers and policymakers with de- tailed information on levels and trends in fertil- ity; nuptiality; sexual activity; fertility prefer- ences; awareness and use of family planning methods; infants and young children feeding practices; nutritional status of mothers and young children; early childhood mortality and maternal mortality; maternal and child health; and aware- ness and behaviour regarding HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. Addition- ally, the 2008 NDHS collected information on malaria prevention and treatment, neglected tropical diseases, domestic violence, fistulae, and female genital cutting (FGC)." Did you not read this? Or the heading of the table from which you drew these figures? Why did you not go to similar effort to find limited surveys with smaller christian pools of survey respondents.
While I am attempting to give you the benefit of the doubt here; the repeated, continual, large scale misquotation of religious statistical data over a series of months and often marked "Minor" strains credulity.
The example from the Congo is equally explicit.
So did you not read the sources you've cited to provide dramatically low revisions of non-christian population? And why do your edits regarding religious demographics consistently lower the percentage of Muslim populations? Why, when you first did this in many national articles in May, did you cite lower percentage figures that were not in any form in the references you cited?
Assuming this is just a consistent, long term pattern of errors on your part, perhaps you should not be editing these articles. At very least you need to cite specific pages of huge pdfs you link to -- but do not read -- so that editors do not have to stay up all night reading book length multi-lingual health survey documents to correct your figures. T L Miles (talk) 18:18, 3 July 2011 (UTC)


I am not going to get in an edit war with you, but the statistics you cite are clearly not borne out in the sources you cite. I don't have time to police you dozens of revisions (all downward and unsupported) of Muslim population from nations and regions across the globe. I am referring this to other editors to deal with.

Template:Ancient Roman religion[edit]

You are invited to discuss your recent change to this template. The image you chose is the main image for the Roman mythology article, and should not be used for the religion template, because it should not confuse religion and mythology. I agree that the image of the Mysteries is not the best choice either, since it would be better to illustrate Rome's traditional religious practice and not the imported (but very popular!) mysteries. Therefore I've replaced the mythological scene with Marcus Aurelius conducting a sacrifice in front of the Temple of Jupiter. Cynwolfe (talk) 18:39, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Re: Borders on the North American Union map[edit]

Hey there, sorry for the delay, I don't really check my Wikipedia account that much anymore, regarding the map, when I made it I remember that I left the borderlines on because it was illustrating the North American Region, not the hypothetical union (like the EU) that's why I thought the 3 countries should be clearly separated.

Anyway if you wish to create a new map (based on that one) showing the whole area without the borderlines please feel free to do so, you can make it using Inkscape, it is really easy to use there are a whole bunch of tutorials on Youtube, cheers. Supaman89 (talk) 03:01, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

"List of cities in Michigan by population"[edit]

Could you move "List of cities in Michigan by population" back to "List of municipalities in Michigan (by population)"? The original title was more correct for while townships are municipalities, in Michigan, they are not incorporated cities. The original title was more correct, and "cities" should redirect to "municipalities", not the other way around. Please correct this.

DRC Provinces, current and proposed[edit]

We have been working in parallel. I have merged most of the "proposed province" articles into the "district" articles, seeing no reason for two articles about the same physical place. But you have been removing notes on the proposed new provinces from the existing province articles. I think that is wrong - the splits remain a possibility, perhaps remote but relevant and sourced. I have also put back a couple of lists of towns in a given province, expanding them a bit to add the districts and territories, and expect to do more. The lists seem relevant to the articles on provinces. I do not have a problem with some overlap or repetition. Comments? Aymatth2 (talk) 01:24, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

I agree that the DRC province articles are badly lacking information of any type, including geography, economy, history, demographics, politics, communications etc. Perhaps these aspects will be what most readers are interested in. But a list of the main communities, similar to Crete#Cities or North Yorkshire#Towns and villages but sortable, is relevant and will be of interest to some readers. Some may want to see how large their town is compared to others in the region, for example. There is also value to editors, since the redlinks indicate missing topics. Of particular interest to me is the link map of all coordinates from Google generated by the GeoGroupTemplate, appearing below the infobox in an article like Bas-Congo. This shows the locations of the listed communities, and also shows places like Kwilu-Ngongo and Kolo Fuma that Google sees as significant but that are not in the list. I find this useful. Aymatth2 (talk) 17:28, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
I've noticed in checking new pages that most of the articles have no references whatsoever, nor even any geographic coordinates. This is not helpful. Even the shortest stub must have some information of this sort. If you are writing the articles, you must be adding it from some list or source, and have the information readily available; so please add the references -- and if possible the coordinates-- at the very first edit, because it will be much harder for anyone to do so later.

Your contribution to Religion in the United States[edit]

Thank you for your recent updates to the opening paragraph in Religion in the United States. It is always appreciated when people provide a link to the survey from which the statistics are being taken. When I went to the survey to which you provided a link, I noticed that you apparently misread the table in the survey. The table was Commitment to Religious life among Asian Americans compared to the General Public (I realize that there was also a table which compared Asian American Christians to the Christian population as a whole). The table said that 56 percent of Americans in the general public pray daily, 23 percent pray weekly or monthly, and 19 percent pray seldomly or never. However, the statement in the opening paragraph of the article now reads "23 percent say they pray at least weekly". It should say instead "56 percent pray daily" or it could also say "89 percent say they pray at least monthly" (we don't know how many pray at least weekly). You can decide which of these two statements, or both, should appear in the article (I would be more inclined to the former).JDefauw (talk) 03:07, 25 July 2012 (UTC)JDefauw

Good morning. If you see the table "Unaffiliated, But Not Uniformly Secular" you'll see that 30% of those unaffiliated are absolutely certain about the existence of God and 38% also believe in God but are less certain. So, the percentage of the unaffiliated who believe in God is 68% (30% certain and 38% less certain), 27% stated that they don't believe in God and 5% stated other/don't know.

Your English is very good. Thank you for your participation in English Wikipedia. I would encourage you to continue to participate. When Mightymights undid your revision, he should have provided you with an explanation in his edit summary. It was necessary to undo your revision for two reasons:
1) Your analysis was too detailed for the lead section of the article. It belongs in the section "No religion".
2) The source which was cited by Mightymights said that 68% of those who are not affiliated with any religion still believe in the existence of God. However, to the best of my knowledge (I did not read the entire report) the report did not refer to the increasing number of those who are not affiliated with any religion as a "crisis in religious identity". The Wikipedia policy no original research states that we cannot include any analysis that serves to advance a position that is not advanced in the source.
If the report by the PEW forum did speak of a "crisis in religious identity", then you might be able to include that statement or a similar statement in the article (although not in the lead section). However, you would have to be careful to comply with the Wikipedia policy of neutral point of view. If you spoke of an "absence of religious identity", then you would be making a neutral statement. If you use the word "crisis", then you are stating a point of view, since at least a minority of Americans would not agree with us that the decline of religion in America is a crisis.
If you need any more help, you can leave a message on my talk page. I should be able to respond on Monday.JDefauw (talk) 21:50, 13 October 2012 (UTC)JDefauw

Yann M'Vila[edit]

Hi there. I undid your recent edit to Yann M'Vila, and I thought I should come here to explain why. You changed the country of his father from DR Congo to Congo, without giving an explanation. I have no idea whether his father was from this or that country, but I believe you should write an edit summary and provide a source when doing such a change.

Colors in Statistic[edit]

The color Grey is used for non-religious almost universally in Pie charts about religion in Wikipedia and you can verify it yourself Vargmali (talk) 20:12, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Why did you do that?[edit]

Vandalism? You are the one making vandalism, because I added updated info and sources to Brazil, Indonesia and Pakistan. And you reverted it. Now we have broken links (no sources) to Brazil and Pakistan and outdated info to Indonesia. Congratulations. MarcosPassos (talk) 10:53, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
