Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited 2012 Copa del Sol, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cartagena (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Stade de Lattre[edit]

A tag has been placed on Stade de Lattre, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect to an article talk page, file description page, file talk page, MediaWiki page, MediaWiki talk page, category talk page, portal talk page, template talk page, help talk, user page, user talk or special page from the main/article space.

If you can fix the redirect to point to a mainspace page, please do so and remove the speedy deletion tag. However, please do not remove the speedy deletion tag unless you are fixing the redirect. If you think the redirect should be retained as is for some reason, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. --UnbelievableError (talk) 02:27, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:44, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

I offered the reason on the talk page. Please read it and supply official standings from the tournament organizer or FIFA, not WP:OR as you are doing. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:24, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

I'll say this nicely. You should not call other editors vandals when you are adding incorrect information. If you add it back again, I will be forced to tag the material and then remove it after no reference is provided. --00:29, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

  • I had replied there. No reason for deletion. NickSt (talk) 00:30, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I replied there too. No reason for inclusion as it's leaving readers with the impression that this is an actual tournament and not just a series of friendlies. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:48, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

2014 olympic hockey[edit]

Russia did not qualify as host in the men's, the IIHF decided that following 2006 they would review the hosts status on a case by case basis. Please return the page to the correct format, or provide evidence for the changes you have made.18abruce (talk) 10:28, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

  • You think Russia qualify as host in the women's but not qualify in the men's?! If Russia is not in Top9, they will play qual. tournament? Give me a link about it. NickSt (talk) 10:32, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Ok, maybe you are right taking into account next link [2] But it's a very strange. NickSt (talk) 11:17, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
There is no rule that states that the host qualifies automatically in olympic team sports, each sport's governing body has to decide for themselves. Take into account the Greek field hockey team in 2004 who took their exclusion to the Court for Arbitration in Sport, and lost. Additionally, read this article, and it explains the issue as it relates to South Korea. The difficulty even with the women's page is that initially the IIHF said that the Russians qualified as hosts, however the current olympic summary states that the top six ranked teams qualified directly, and says nothing about the host. And their statutes and bylaws state "top six", so there may be some further argument on that page, the IIHF routinely contradicts itself so it is a challenge. I personally believe that the IIHF would have included Russia's team regardless of ranking, but that is my belief, and it will be interesting to see what happens with the Koreans.18abruce (talk) 19:39, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Thx for your info. NickSt (talk) 19:43, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Christmas in the news[edit]

Current Events is not a news source like BBC or any of those other ones that you recently added. Those news sources need to produce things that their readers want to read about, and people like reading about their own holidays. The Current Events section, on the other hand, is for writing about unique, non-recurring events. Christmas is something that happens every year. You do not need to write a news line about it for people to know what - they just have to read Christmas once and they will know that it happens every year.

Another reason not to list holidays is that there are way too many to list and we will never satisfy everybody. For example, where is Hanukka? Thanksgiving?

I am going to revert your change again. Do not add it again.

Linkminer (talk) 21:20, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Some other things to note: Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were both noted in the "On this day..." section on the main page. Also, in terms of actual policies about Current Events, we can look here and page that is linked to in that section. Granted, this is for the In the news section of the main page, but it's all we've got. Note that the page of allowed recurring events does not include any holidays. Linkminer (talk) 21:50, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't agree. Worldwide coverage of significant event. Many refs are present. See also second part of sentence. Plz start a discussion at the portal if you want to delete such referred item. NickSt (talk) 02:40, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
I won't revert again immediately, but please explain why you "don't agree", and explain to me why other holidays are not worthy of the Current Events pages. And do not repeat your nonsense about "many refs". It is, as I said, completely irrelevant. Linkminer (talk) 07:06, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
And explain to me what is "significant" about an event that happens every single year like clockwork with absolutely no variation. Linkminer (talk) 07:08, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Space categories[edit]

Hi, I saw you moved a couple of articles from Category:Space to Category:Space science, in particular Leibniz–Clarke correspondence, Philosophy of space and time, Relational space and Sociology of space. I would say these articles are about space as a physical or philosophical concept, but not at all about outer space, so they fit much better in Space than in Space science. I'd suggest to move at least the first two articles back, for the other two one might check if there's a better category than Space, but they shouldn't stay in Space science. What do you think? — HHHIPPO 20:35, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

It's a bit tricky since space can have several related, but distinct, meanings. Category:Space science doesn't have a proper description or inclusion criteria, but from the articles it contains and from its main article it's quite obvious that space here means the place beyond earth related to stars, other planets and spaceships, rather than the general physical concept related to length, volume and movement. And I'm not sure if it's not confusing to include Category:Space science (about the astronomical 'place') into Category:Space (about the physical concept). I agree though that this general area could use some attention, and cleanup of the definition and structuring of the various categories. I'll put it on my to do list...
Regarding the four articles, I'll put them back. Category:Space might not be ideal for all of them, but Category:Space science is wrong. Best regards — HHHIPPO 21:47, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Suggestion for current events: Mahmudur Rahman has been arrested in Bangladesh today. The news cites from Al-Jazeera, etc, are in the article.

Category:Chess World Cup[edit]

renaming a chess article[edit]

When you rename a chess article, as you did with FIDE Federations, you need to make the change in index of chess articles - remove the old name and add the new one. The reason is that many members of the chess project use "related changes" on that page to show recent changes to chess articles (to check for vandalism, correctness, etc). The "related changes" shows changes to the article with that exact title, so if it is renamed, it shows changes to the redirect instead of the actual article. I made the change for FIDE federations.

  • This is a one of the main rules of the regulations. Most wins also was not used, but tiebreakers without blitz match are not full. It has a big influence on the last round games. See [4] All criteria are shown. NickSt (talk) 17:46, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
It has no impact upon the final standings. It could have been replaced by different tie-break criteria, and the winner of the tournament would be the same, as there was no tie for first place. "All criteria are shown"? This is Wikipedia, not norwaychess.com. Toccata quarta (talk) 18:02, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Used or not used is not important. It was a one of the tie-break criteria according regulations, and no reason to delete it. NickSt (talk) 18:18, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

World Chess Championship 2013[edit]

Wikipedia is built on WP:CONSENSUS, not on one editor's opinions. There has been a discussion on the topic of including head-to-head results on Talk:World Chess Championship 2013, and it was against that. Your latest edits at World Chess Championship 2013 reflect a thorough disregard for one of Wikipedia's key policies. Toccata quarta (talk) 17:51, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Your personal wrong opinion is not consensus. Keep this H2H or delete all H2H from all chess WC articles after new full discussion. H2H is an important information for tournament preview. NickSt (talk) 17:53, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
You obviously didn't read Talk:World Chess Championship 2013, where I (19:27, 14 March 2013 (UTC)) and User:SubSeven (20:30, 14 March 2013 (UTC)) said it should not be included. Wikipedia is not centered around packing trivia into articles, and I'm getting tired of your WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS and WP:IDIDNTHEARTHAT. Toccata quarta (talk) 18:20, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
  • That discussion was about "new article for candidates tournament", not about H2H. And there was another user with comment: "The article can have previous head-2-head records against each other". No consensus at all. Now each WCh article since 2006 has H2H section, thats why I added info for 2013 match. If you want to delete H2H from all WCh articles, plz start a new separate discussion.

KHL all star games[edit]

Why are you renaming the articles? Hockey ASG's are traditionally 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.--Львівське (говорити) 02:12, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

  • First of all, in Russian Wiki it was named ru:Матч звёзд КХЛ 2013 etc. Also logo [5] includes a year, but not number. Also, it is very uncomfortably for reader to see title of that articles without year. I have added matches in the template {{KHL}} by year. Btw, official name is ru:Матч Звезд-2013, see [6]. NickSt (talk) 08:25, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
Same with NHL, but it's still 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.
  • And about our old discussion. Do you agree to rename UKR season articles (before last two PHL seasons) using next variant: from 1992–93 Ukrainian Hockey Championship to 2010–11 Ukrainian Hockey Championship? NickSt (talk) 08:33, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
No, I think it should still be called Ukrainian Hockey Championship because it didn't cease to exist, though I wish we could get some outside opinions on this to break the tie. I also still think it should be the number, not the year, as the FHU uses roman numerals.--Львівське (говорити) 17:29, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:Years in chess[edit]

WP:EPON: Articles with an eponymous category may also be categorized in the broader categories that would be present if there were no eponymous category (e.g. the article France appears in both Category:France and Category:Western Europe, even though the latter is the parent category of the former).

They may also be categorized, not they must also be categorized. It's pointless to do that here and just clogs Category:Years in chess to no advantage. I reverted your category additions because they don't improve the encyclopedia, and in fact they make it a little worse. Quale (talk) 17:20, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

  • It is your personal opinion, not rule. See analogs: Category:Years in association football and Category:Sports by year. Do we must to remove all items from it? NickSt (talk) 17:25, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
    • Yes, and your claim that the category needs pointless duplication is also your personal opinion, not rule. Whoever maintains those categories can decide what they want to do with them by consensus. The claim that "my way is just as good as yours" isn't a sufficient reason to make a change in wikipedia. Each edit should make the encyclopedia better, not just different, and you'll have to explain to me how your category additions actually make the encyclopedia better. I don't think they do.
    • I also note that you quoted that section a little selectively:
WP:EPON: Articles with an eponymous category may also be categorized in the broader categories that would be present if there were no eponymous category (e.g. the article France appears in both Category:France and Category:Western Europe, even though the latter is the parent category of the former). However, this is not obligatory; editors should decide by consensus for each category tree which solution makes most sense.
I don't know that a strong indication of consensus is available, but Category:Years in chess was created in 2006. In about six and a half years you're the first person who felt it necessary to put the individual articles both in the supercategory and in their own categories. I don't see that the duplication makes sense. It makes the parent category twice as large to no advantage. Quale (talk)
There are many sports categories trees were structured using this WP:EPON rule. For example, Category:UEFA competitions also. It has a big advantage - there is a list of all eponymous (year's) articles in one place. Otherwise user must go at the many (more than 100!) separate categories to find needed info. I only done with Category:Years in chess the same as for Category:Sports by year. NickSt (talk) 17:49, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
I see your point. I overstated the concern about duplication in the category since there are relatively few year in chess articles (around 34) compared to the number of year in chess categories (268). Each year in chess article uses Template:Year nav topic5 to make it easy to navigate to nearby years, but there are some large gaps between 1932, 1933, 1939–1945, 1988–. We haven't been creating these articles very quickly, and it seems likely that it will be some time before we fill in the 50 years missing between 1933 and 2013. Quale (talk) 10:00, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Kasparov Game 1 & 6 subheads[edit]

Re this, they both can't be "main" articles of each other (if you go to the linked article, the linked article claims the previous article is "main"). Which do you propose s/b "main" and the other "see also" (or whatever)? Ihardlythinkso (talk) 20:04, 23 June 2013 (UTC) p.s. Same with the Game 6 header too.

renaming a chess article[edit]

When you rename a chess article, you need to take out the old name and add the new name at index of chess articles. I did this to Sonneborn-Berger score in the index article. The reason is that "related changes" to the index shows changes to the exact titles listed. If the change isn't made in the index article, "related changes" shows changes to the redirect page instead of the actual page. Many members of the chess project look at the recent changes to the index article. Thank you. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 03:11, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

  • All football cup templates are without such sections, see {{FA Cup}}, {{Copa del Rey}}, {{DFB-Pokal}}, {{Coppa Italia}}, {{Coupe de France}}, for example. 20 items for 4 rows? Unneded sharing. It is a consensus by default. If you want to change all football cup templates using your structure, plz start discussion on WT:WPF. NickSt (talk) 12:19, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Please show where that consensus is and where the policy directs that seasons cannot divided into decades. Brudder Andrusha (talk) 12:25, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
See all other football cup templates. No one has such decade strucure. Change all templates (after discussion), or keep this as is. NickSt (talk) 12:28, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
That is not what I asked. I asked where is the policy for the consensus decision. Other parts of WP use decades for granularization. Brudder Andrusha (talk) 12:31, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Such sharing unneded here with only 20 items. Other parts? But not with football templates now. Start a discussion if you want to change it. Change all or keep all. NickSt (talk) 12:37, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done.

Points at the Paris Masters 13[edit]

Hi, when you recently update points in Djoković, please look at this section. Colleague is away perhaps. Do you know answer? If I compare it e.g. to US Open 2013 and ATP Rankings as of 9.9.2013 after tournament, there are points all right, correct.--Misbeliever (talk) 15:26, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes:
  • Djoković: 28/10: 11 120 (ATP Ranks) + 1 000 (winner Paris) = 12 120 - 10 (defending Paris) = 12 110 points / 18 tour.
  • Djoković: 4/11: 12 110 - 1 500 (defending ATP Finals 12) = 10 610 (ATP Ranks) / 17 tour.
Fine! So, there is a question, if points data (after tournament) in article Paris Masters 2013 are correct? Problem is that perhaps Djoković doesn't have 12,110 points in any rankings, today. So, information about 12 110 points is probably false. Thanks.--Misbeliever (talk) 22:08, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Maximum break [edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Maximum break shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Current politics (December 2013)[edit]

Hi Nick--

I have an off-the-wall totally unencyclopedic question that's been bothering me, and thought that perhaps you might be able to provide some insight. I notice that you've fairly recently made some small edits to the article Politics in Ukraine (which is way out of date); that you are in Ukraine, and that you list "current events" as one of your interests.

If you superimpose maps of Ukraine, for instance the ones at Russian language in Ukraine with those at Politics in Ukraine, it seems pretty clear that eastern and southern districts are ethnically, linguistically, and politically different from central and western districts.

I'm not a big newshound, but nothing that I've seen in the current hoopla between Putin and the EU ever refers to such geographic distinctions. Possibly I've just missed them. Would it be fair to say that ethnic Ukrainians in central and western districts were in general leaning toward the EU, and predominantly Russian-speakers in the east and south were happier with Putin's offer?

I'm not a troll; I'm just really curious, and wonder why this seems to never be mentioned in news articles. I certainly don't want to attract a flak attack to your userpage, so if you think best, just delete my post without answering. Thanks. Milkunderwood (talk) 05:12, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

This is about the closest I've seen, but it still doesn't really address the question directly: [17]

SpaceX reusable launch system development program[edit]

Hi Nick, you just added SpaceX reusable launch system development program to the category: Category:Proposed space launch vehicles. I was wondering what was your rationale for that?

The article is not about a launch vehicle, but rather a set of technologies that will (or could, if successful) apply to a number of different launch vehicles, both of which are already under development (Falcon Heavy and Falcon 9R), so neither is really "proposed." And while SpaceX has proposed future larger vehicles, that would ostensibly be reusable and take advantage of any technology that is successfully developed by the SpaceX reusable launch system development program, we haven't had any good sources on the name of another launch vehicle, as the Mars Colonial Transporter may only be an in-space transporter and no source yet says that it is necessarily an Earth launch vehicle. Cheers. N2e (talk) 01:36, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Ok, I reverted the edit. I think the article describes some planned/proposed SLV, but there is no category for planned/under development SLV, only proposed). And Reusable Falcon Heavy with Reusable Falcon 9 redirect to it. Thank you for explanation. NickSt (talk) 01:44, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Nick. I think that makes the categories a bit more correct on that. By the way, since you are interested in Spaceflight, that particular article is one that we are endeavoring to take to good article status in the next month or so. There is background on the Talk page, as well as a current proposal to try to solve a problem where the {{convert}} template has some limitations with respect to Mach numbers. Feel free to look into that, and weigh in with an opinion if you have one. Cheers. N2e (talk) 06:52, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

splitting articles[edit]

Hi, I reverted your Euromaidan edits; if you want to split the article, please read up on the process and use the proposed split tags and a talk thread to get consensus. One advantage to doing it that way is you may attract helpers, and another is you may get further ideas how to cover this stuff in a sensible manner. Unilateral splitting during hot current events is prone to problems, so get consensus first please. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 16:38, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Doesn't really count, in my opinion, without proper use of proposed merge/split tags, to call attention to such threads. You should expect many new editors to pass by these pages with the Crimea events the past few days. But ya'll are right, the original was getting long and time can sort out the chaos. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 16:50, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

"Original research"[edit]

Your definition of "original research" is in no way supported by WP:OR. They are the same numbers, they are simply presented in a different way that is relevant to the article. Just because text (or in this case, numbers) isn't literally copied and pasted from the source doesn't make it "original research." It's the same information as the linked article, just presented in a way that's relevant to the wikipedia article.

There's even a one paragraph note and a efn ref explaining why it's done this way.

FYI, the same thing is done with every other poll in the table, so I don't know why you keep changing the numbers for just that one poll. Also, it's done on literally every other election article on wikipedia.

The format was decided by consensus with input from a lot of different people, because, again, the same format is used for all polls on every article on wikipedia, and it's been developed over time. There's of course no problem with wanting to change it more, as I'm sure it can and will be improved, but please stop unilaterally and only partially editing it without consensus, and trying to shut down debate by linking WP:OR (which has no relevance.)

It verges on vandalism. If you want to change it, the onus falls on you to start a discussion on Talk. Not to start an edit war about it.

I would be happy to discuss the subject on Talk, but please stop partially and inconsistently editing the table so it no longer makes sense. --4idaho (talk) 15:44, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Reference Columns[edit]

Hi there. I noticed that you changed the Ukrainian leagues references columns from 2 to 3. I'm reverting them back to two. Three columns has been reported as just to hard to read.

Formula One[edit]

You appear to be misunderstanding "Formula One", especially as it was used before 1950. Formula One is a set of rules (a "formula") that governs a specific class of racing car. It was introduced in 1946 and was named Formula One in 1948. Hence, there were certainly Formula One races run in 1948 and 1949. It is only recently that Bernie Ecclestone has been attempting to steal the term and make it his own trademark to refer to what were always previously the World Drivers' Championship and World Constructors' Championship series. Could you go back and undo some of the ill-informed edits you made recently to various categories that refer to Formula One before 1950, please? Thanks. Pyrope 16:50, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

So? You removed the article from a category named "1949 Formula One races", not "races of the 1949 Formula One season". That race was a Formula One race that happened in 1949, therefore the category was perfectly descriptive. Pyrope 16:57, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for reverting your edits. There are plenty of references to Formula One prior to 1950. For instance, I have a copy of the 1948 British Grand Prix programme that specifically notes the race being run to the "new Formula One regulations", so claims that the formula was only renamed from Formula A to Formule One in 1950 is clearly wrong. Until 1980 there was a clear distinction between the regulations formula and the World Championship race series. There is an apparent campaign currently underway by the commercial rights holder of the current World Championship to take over the term Formula One as their own trademark, and this seems to be resulting in a certain amount of misinformation and revisionist history being written in the press and online.

May 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Iryna Harpy. Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view. Your recent edit to Ukrainian Insurgent Army seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Iryna Harpy (talk) 01:31, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Aha, I see your point. Apologies (although something more in the ES would have been useful). Unfortunately, all Russian and Ukrainian articles are currently drawing in a lot of hit-and-run edits. I think I've spent more time reverting and debating on talk pages for the last few months than on any constructive editing. Thanks for the heads up. I'll get rid of the category (which shouldn't be there) on the other article now. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 03:22, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Reversion[edit]

Regarding the eponymous category World University Cycling Championships. I agree with the guideline at WP:EPON. However, Category:World championships is not a parent category of the subject: that would be Category:World University Championships instead. SFB 10:47, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you for explaining. I reverted my edit. NickSt (talk) 11:16, 24 May 2014 (UTC)


Tennis tournament titles[edit]

Just a quick heads up, Tennis project guidelines are to use the non-sponsored English tournament name. So Nuremberg Cup is preferred over Nürnberger Versicherungscup. This is because sponsors change like the wind and we do not want to keep moving tournament articles every other year. We do need to be able to source the non-sponsored name, we can't just make it up. Hence Nuremberg Cup at Reuters news. Thanks. Fyunck(click) (talk) 18:14, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Pre Season League Standings[edit]

Pre Season League Standings on WP is in Alphabetical order as per the English standard. Please refer to 2014–15_Premier_League as an example. All teams are equal and the last season's standings have no bearing on the crurrent new season standings. Brudder Andrusha (talk) 02:01, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Editing on others' user pages[edit]

Would you care to explain why you made this edit in a user space that is not yours? Are you not aware of the Wikipedia guidelines on editing user pages that do not belong to you? The correct procedure if you find a concern on another user's page, is to draw their attention to it by leaving a note on their talk page; not make the edit yourself. The work in my sandboxes are a mixture of draft articles that I am taking my time to work on, as I do not like rushing my work; and also reference notes on Wikipedia-related topics that I refer back to from time to time. I appreciate it if you refrain from editing any further in my user space, without my prior consent to do so. Wes Mᴥuse 15:24, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

@Wesley Mouse: FYI - you are fine to do most things in userspace, but not when this impacts the main space. Categorising your userspace in the article structure is an example of that. I find sticking a colon before "Category:" is the easiest way to keep the categories on a draft, but not have it listed alongside main articles. Cheers! SFB 17:16, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
And it is also courtesy to politely notify the user on their talk page of the concern so that they can make the change themselves, especially if it is known that they are highly active in editing. That is still a policy rule. Wes Mᴥuse 17:30, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Apologies if Nickst and I's actions frustrated you - I hope you see both of us were acting in good faith. Thanks. SFB 18:33, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
  • @Wesley Mouse: [24] Please, Do not put your userpage or subpages, including draft articles, into content categories. Readers don't want to see your sandbox in 2014 in music category. And no another problems. Thank you. NickSt (talk) 18:50, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
And is it too much effort to contact a user via their talk page first? If one actually takes time to check the procedure on how to handle other's user pages, then one would have known it is their obligation, per WP:NOBAN, that "If a user asks you not to edit their user pages, it is probably sensible to respect their requests". And if you do come across issues within a user's page (including sandboxes) then and per WP:USERTALKBLOG, "the best option if there is a concern with a user's page is to draw their attention to the matter via their talk page and let them edit it themselves". The fact that you didn't even bother to notify me of the concern via my talk page and give me the opportunity to handle the address the concerns is highly intrusive and rude. Wes Mᴥuse 19:07, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Multi-sport =/= International[edit]

Hi Nick - regarding this edit, I have purposefully made the multi-sport event structure separate from the international competition structure because multi-sport events are not international by definition. Within Category:Basketball at multi-sport events we have a good example in Basketball at the 2013 Canada Summer Games – national level events are common (e.g. China Games, the missing USOC National Sports Festival) and there are several other multi-sport events that are not organised on a national team basis. As a result, where there are "international sports competition" categories available, we should add these to the subcategories, not merge them with the multi-sport ones. SFB 18:35, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Ok. I understand you. Thank you for detail description. NickSt (talk) 18:40, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Ukraine[edit]

Hello Nickst!

I have seen you do a lot of sport edits and I guess you are a great sport fan.

Can I ask you if you support Ukraine in all sports?

For example, have you followed today's Handball match against Austria for the qualification to Women's Handball European Championship 2014? Congratulations for the victory and the qualification!

If you support Ukraine in all sports and you follow them all, I will tell you aabout something you can be interested in.

Let me know. Thanks !

Matteo from Italy --MatteoITA (talk) 20:38, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much, a pity Ukraine has not qualified for the FIFA World Cup.

It's great you follow Ukraine in all sports. Also in Individual Sports ? Can I send you an e-mail with more info about something you can be interested to?

Thanks again.

Patrolling new pages[edit]

Hi Nick – I've noticed that your newly added pages still come up as needing to be Patrolled. As a frequent creator of articles, I think it would be a good idea for you to apply for auto-patrol rights at Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Autopatrolled. This should allow editors doing patrol work to focus on new work from less experienced editors. SFB 17:22, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Bad faith behaviour[edit]

I understand that you feel the need to revert each one of my edits, but I hope that you know that enforcing MoS guidelines in articles and titles is not controversial, and is considered a technical request. Per MOS:HYPHEN, the title should be Anti-Maidan. So yes, I did have consensus, as found in the guidelines per WP:CONSENSUS, and your revert was inappropriate. What's more, though, you once again tampered with the redirect. I will say it one last time before requesting administrator action: do not edit redirects after you move a page. Do not edit redirects after you move a page. Not only is this not necessary, it is quite harmful. I'm personally certain that you are doing this in bad faith, but in case that's not case, I'd appreciate if you'd listen to me when I say that you should not edit the redirects. This is a bad faith behaviour that falls under Wikipedia:Disruptive editing. Like I said, this is the last time I'm going to say it politely. If you edit a redirect again after a page move again, I will request administrator action. RGloucester 18:33, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

  • As I have already said to you fifty times, use WP:RM process only for controversial renamings. Also please read WP:CATREDIRECT carefully. NickSt (talk) 18:47, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
It isn't controversial to enforce the Manual of Style, which I have already cited. Have you read it? Don't even cite WP:CATREDIRECT. I've seen you do it without changing the template. You've only recently started the template changing game (after Dustin added the "alternative name" template to one of your tampered redirects), which of course, isn't even appropriate, because those don't fall under the "alternative name" category, but under the "move" category. I'm not discussing this further. Do it again, and I will seek administrator action. RGloucester 19:06, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Try to do it now. NickSt (talk) 19:12, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Your edit at the article Pluto[edit]

Regarding my revert and your revert of mine, I will note that your edit summary pointing to dwarf planet Ceres is partially correct. Ceres orbits in the asteroid belt, but is currently listed as a dwarf planet. Pluto is nowhere near being called an asteroid by any source I know of. I have no intention of further correcting the article; however I will likely start a discussion at the talk page on this matter, and I have put these words on your talk page as a courtesy. Best wishes! Jusdafax 09:58, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

I have unreviewed a page you curated[edit]

Thanks for reviewing VTB United League Top Latvian Player, Nickst.

Can't this be merged into the VTB United League page?

To reply, leave a comment on Mblumber's talk page.

Category:Olympic recognised sports[edit]

I have been away, so I did not notice that this deletion had been rammed through until now. As you noted, there are a set of Olympic recognised sports. They are recognised by the IOC, but are not on the Olympic program. They may be eligible for inclusion in the future. Some, like Softball, were once on the program but are no longer. The problem came up with the term "Olympic sport". To many editors, this meant only sports that are currently on the program. However, to the sports organisations themselves, this means whether they are recognised by the IOC, whether on the program or as one of the ARISF. So Softball will go on calling itself an Olympic sport. The claim is important! Especially in Third World countries. Many sports receive their funding on the basis that they are an "Olympic Sport" ie an Olmpic recognised sport. So two categories were created, "Olympic sport" for those on the program, and "Olympic Recognised Sport" for those not on the program. Now Softball will appear as an Olympic sport again, and we'll go through the same arguments again. Hawkeye7 (talk) 03:16, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

OCO category change[edit]

Hey Nick, just wondering why you made this category change to both the OCO and OCO-2 articles. "NASA space probes" does not distinguish between satellites and deep space vehicles. As it stands, there's nothing to connect the OCOs to NASA. Perhaps a new category which does distinguish between NASA Earth-orbital satellites and those deep space missions is called for?

Football Templates[edit]

Hi Nick, I noticed you have added some links to templates that are at AfD. you will also note that I have removed them in most cases as they do not actually appear to be directly related to the competition which the navbox is supposed to serve as a tool for navigation. If there are more links to directly related articles then please add them as I am happy to withdraw nominations if you can prove that the navboxes are useful aids to navigation. However, linking to other unrelated tournaments or the organising country's FA is not useful as they are not articles directly related to the Navbox subject. Additionally, a navbox is only a useful aid to navigation if it contains links t existing articles, point ting to redlinks does not help, though feel free to create those articles, especially if it will make the navboxes useful. Thanks. Fenix down (talk) 13:19, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello. You are wrong. Below sections usually contain links to related organizations or tournaments. I will restore all links. NickSt (talk) 13:24, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

How are they related in the instance of the Audi Cup? It would be useful if you could make this clear. Fenix down (talk) 13:29, 27 August 2014 (UTC) Additionally, your comment on the Peace Cup is unreferenced in the WP article, please can you provide a source for this? Fenix down (talk) 13:32, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • It is not my task to source something. I want to keep all sports navboxes that you proposed to delete without any reasons. NickSt (talk) 13:34, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Of course it is per WP:V! My reasons for nomination are perfectly clear on the relevant pages as well, you seem to be saying to me that you are adding links merely to ensure there is a set number rather because they are of any direct relevance. Fenix down (talk) 13:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit]

Per my removal of content here, the reason it was done is because a) the edit summary said it was taken from Transfermarkt which has been determined through consensus at WP:FOOTY as an unreliable source and secondly, despite saying it was from Transfermarkt, there was no indication as the precise origin of the information, hence it was removed per WP:V. Please do not add this back again without providing a reliable source. Fenix down (talk) 13:44, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • It is a correct information, I know. Read WP:UNSOURCED: In some cases, editors may object if you remove material without giving them time to provide references; consider adding a citation needed tag as an interim step. Wikipedia:Citation needed: . Please revert all your similar edits in football clubs' managers sections from 22 Aug and insert {{citation needed}} tag where you have questions. NickSt (talk) 13:49, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
whether you know it or not is irrelevant. Please read WP:PROVEIT, part of WP:V, the burden of sourcing lies with the editor who adds or restores material. You should not add unsourced material and if it is challenged and removed you should not add it back without the required reliable sourcing. This is a fundamental tenet of WP and should be observed at all times, there is no excuse simply because you say you know you are adding correct information. Fenix down (talk) 13:53, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Repeatedly. Please use {{citation needed}} tag instead of removing the correct text. NickSt (talk) 13:55, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
It's been challenged and removed, what is your problem with adding a source. I am beginning to find you editing rather disruptive. Fenix down (talk) 13:59, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Unreal! You removed only some part of the unsourced list! Removing of correct content is disruptive, of course. [25] Why not all list?! What is your problem with adding tags instead of removing the content. NickSt (talk) 14:05, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I removed the element that was claimed to have been added from a source which consensus feels is unreliable. All unsourced material can be challenged and removed per WP:BOLD, especially if the edit summary that added it clearly indicates it came from a reliable source. As I have asked before, if you "know" the information to be true can you please just add a reliable reference, that's really not too much to ask is it? Fenix down (talk) 14:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Category:Tour de France cyclists[edit]

Please don't add tour de France winners and Tour de France stage winners to this category, as they are already a part of child categories of Category:Tour de France cyclists.

Fram (talk) 06:52, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello. Thanks for your opinion. But I think it must be non-diffusing subcategories, see WP:DUPCAT: Not all subcategories serve the "diffusion" function described above; some are simply subsets which have some special characteristic of interest, such as Category:Best Actor Academy Award winners as a subcategory of Category:Film actors. That people must be marked as cyclists and winners simultaneously. WP:SUBCAT is not applied here. We must have a full list of TdF cyclists without exclusion of somebody here. I will put {{Non-diffusing subcategory}} into subcategories, Ok? If you don't agree, where we can discuss it? NickSt (talk) 08:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
    • I've started a discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Cycling#Categorization. If you believe that I have misrepresented your position, feel free to correct or add to it of course.

The RM discussion is irrelevant. There was a very obvious consensus to merge the article, which RGloucester enacted and you improperly reverted. Three times. Because you didn't get your way.

  • Why irrelevant?! He must not to do it (merge, redirect, rename etc) until WP:RM finish. And he voted "against" before closing it. Is it a correct action - vote and close after? WP:RMNAC say: Non-admin closes normally require that: The consensus or lack of consensus is clear after a full listing period (seven days). Only two days passed. NickSt (talk) 19:14, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
I closed it because the merger discussion had produced a clear consensus to merge the article, rendering the RM irrelevant. No one had enacted the merger, for whatever reason, in the months that followed it. So I did so. RGloucester 19:16, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

In that case, NickSt, there was an ongoing RM discussion (there was no merger discussion/no nothing). You moved the page without waiting for the RM to finish, despite having no consensus to do so. I had consensus on my side, because the merger discussion was clearly in favour of a merge. You're being irrational. RGloucester 19:43, 8 September 2014 (UTC)


RETIRED
This user is no longer active on Wikipedia as of Sep 2014 due to idiot known as RGloucester.

chess[edit]

I saw that you edited many times chess articles. If you are interested in chess, maybe try the demo that I prepared.

I attach the games of the World Chess Championship 2012. In the English wikipedia you had to write the games down, add diagrams and so on, on the Hebrew wikipedia there is a fantastic tool that was developped two years ago - have a look at the demo: HE:משתמש:Yoavd/chessdemo.


I am interested in your view. You can scroll down all the games, then the fast games. --Yoavd (talk) 10:58, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
