The local agreement of those who just wants to smear the subject as "pseudoscience" by hopping to unreliable sources are qualifiers of disruptive editing. There was an RFC that opposed any edits involving the "pseudoscience" term anywhere on the article. We had many other recent discussions where about 6 editors opposed any of these edits.
You should revert back to the 31 March again, and tell them to get the consensus from those editors who always disagreed with these edits because the sources are very non-expertized and we cannot give undue weight to a small mention that is not even defining anything. And there should be another RFC and all those who were involved before should be re-notified. Nothing new has been presented, not even 1 reference, so why re-introduce same misleading edits just because 4 of those editors continue to smear same thing while more editors disagree? We are not online 24x7 and there is more life than just wikipedia, if it is said once 'no' after establishing some policy supporting basis, that would still mean 'no', even if opposing editor bludgeons the talk page. నిజానికి (talk) 07:00, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
- I was not aware of that discussion, but while I have no opinion on the matter myself I will point out that (1) it was not unanimous by any means, and (2) consensus can change. I understand your frustration but maintaining an article is inevitably a continuous process and you are never going to be able to rely on a previous consensus to stop other editing changing the article. Having said this, there is little purpose in discussing this here as I will only be able to act on a consensus on the article's talk page. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 07:33, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for removing the Sydney entry in List of Islamic Terrorist attacks .
While I only ever added 1 entry to it, it was part of my fixing up the links from the Sydney siege entry that hadn't been cleaned up from 6 months ago, and it was annoying to have it sneakily reverted (3 times) and then protected in the incorrect state.

Request edit template
Hi, could you take a look at Template:Request edit/answered? Answered requests are not currently being added to Category:Answered requested edits, instead [[Category:Answered requested edits|]] is displayed in the section. See here. Also, the documentation for Template:Request edit says
|A parameter adds the request to Category:Implemented requested edits but in fact Category:Answered requested edits gets (or used to get) updated. - NQ (talk) 09:37, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
- Sorry about that. Hopefully I fixed it yesterday? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:46, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Wikidata weekly summary #159
Hello! I've noticed that the article says that the "Arameans were" a people. We are very much still existent and fighting for our recognition against our politicized Assyrian identity. Would it be possible to change this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:06, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
