Talk Page N0n3up[edit]

User page.

Your request on my page[edit]

Hi, N0n3up! Welcome to Wikipedia. How can I help you? I notice that you're currently edit warring with User:BilCat on Americans with regard to the religion/ethnicity of Einstein. Is that what you're worried about?

I have to say, I don't quite understand your view there. Your note on the article talkpage is very short and general, and you don't offer any sources for what you say. Considering that the article Albert Einstein contradicts your claim that Einstein was a Jew "religiously", you really need to offer some evidence for your view. I note from Albert Einstein that Albert's parents were non-observant Jews, that he went to a Catholic elementary school, and that he's in the category Category:Jewish agnostics (plus various other kinds of agnostics). What's your basis for saying he was a Jew "religiously"? Did you notice that BilCat referred you, in an edit summary, to "his bio article" (i.e. Albert Einstein) and sources there? (N.b., please don't edit war.) Bishonen | talk 13:14, 30 September 2013 (UTC).

Michelangelo requested to be buried in "his beloved city of Florence". Can I ask you why you changed a referenced statement that was quite specific to a generalised statement? I don't think it had anything to do with his "birthplace". It had to do with his love and loyalty for the city where he was educated as an artist. Amandajm (talk) 00:44, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Your change to the article seems to be quite arbitrary, and I cannot understand why you made it, or why you imagined that what was stated in the article might be erroneous, since it was referenced, and since it was so very obviously correct, from the context of the article itself!
  • There is a whole section in the article about Michelangelo's apprenticeship in Florence.
  • There are three sections in the article in which the city name '"Florence" is given.
  • There is a sentence in the article that states: "A siege of the city ensued, and Michelangelo went to the aid of his beloved Florence by working on the city's fortifications from 1528 to 1529. "
So why would anyone who had actually read the article, imagine that the region of Tuscany (which includes the rival city Siena, among others) be what was meant, instead of "Florence"?
The source is Coughlan. The page number is given. The exact words, as written by Coughlan are "As he wanted, his body was taken home to Florence". Coughlan's source is Vasari.
Please don't make changes like this unless you really know the subject, know that what you are reading is wrong, and can reference the change you have made. You can do a lot of damage to an article by stuffing up referenced material. If your change is slight, you allow the reference to remain, and the person who watches the article doesn't have detailed knowledge and presumes your change has been sourced, then you have lost an accurate fact, in favour of an inaccurate one.

Disambiguation link notification for July 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Peru, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Paracas and Moche. 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.
