Should we start a new article for the "Zionist Camp" of Livni-Herzog?[edit]

There is a new article in the Hebrew wikipedia [1] on the "Zionist Camp" list of Livni-Herzog, do you think we shpuld start such an article in the English Wikipedia? --Midrashah (talk) 18:32, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

@Midrashah: Good question. I hadn't realised that the alliance had a separate name. If this is going to be like One Israel, then yes, I think it should. However, if it's just a slogan used by the two parties, then not. Number 57 22:58, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm not clear about it. Let's gather more sources and than decide. --Midrashah (talk) 17:29, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Mauritian general election, 2014[edit]

Putting the long table of results doesn't make the article look good (It might be better if it was collapsable) and the small table is better for readability. Find me another general election article which list results whereby each and every party (even those with 0.001% and 0% of total votes) are listed. Also, if you want to put all parties, please edit the template.

Also, please don't translate the name of the political parties. Even in English media, their name remains as they are. For example, Front Solidarité Mauricienne (FSM) is not Mauritian Solidarity Front; Mouvement Mauricien Social Démocrate (MMSD) is not Mauritian Social Democratic Movement; Mouvement Rodriguais (MR) is not Rodrigues Militant Movement. Find me an English source which proved they are translated and then we can translate. Already the official source is in English and their names are not translated. The name of the parties should be as they are mentioned in the Electoral Commissionner's website unless you find an English language source which showed they are translated such as for the Mauritian Labour Party which is the exception here (Even then, not all English sources translate the Parti Travailliste) . Thank you. -- (talk) 23:36, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Thirty-third government of Israel, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Meir Cohen. 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.

Just realized that the place for others to add barnstars was here, rather than directly on your user page. Sorry for the blunder. Contributor613 (talk) 04:59, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@Contributor613: No problem, and thank you :) Number 57 09:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the understanding. And you certainly earned it.
By the way you wrote "This user supports the ban on smoking in public places." Just curious if you know of countries that ban smoking in public places? I agree that it should be banned. Why should people walking in the street have to be exposed to second hand smoke? Is no one concerned about cancer! Contributor613 (talk) 16:31, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
@Contributor613: I'm not sure if it's banned in all public places anywhere, but as you say, it would be nice. I certainly support the ban on smoking in indoor public spaces in England, which IMO was one of the best policies introduced in the last 15 years (and also pleasing how well observed it is).

French Somaliland[edit]

Hello Middayexpress. A few years ago you edited French Somaliland constitutional referendum, 1958, adding the claim that the French authorities had expelled thousands of Somalis before the vote. This is sourced to page 360 of the Encylopedia of African History. However, page 360 of that book is about South Africa. There is a brief mention of the referendum in the book (on page 616), but it says nothing about expulsions. Could you clarify why this source was used? Thanks, Number 57 16:44, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Number 57. 360 was a typo; the expulsion is noted on the following page, 361 [2]. Regards, Middayexpress (talk) 16:54, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Unless I'm being blind, the source says nothing about expulsions for the 1958 referendum. The only mention of expulsions is regarding those that happened after the 1967 one. Number 57 17:00, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
It seems that we were both mistaken. The Shillington page is on Djibouti (not South Africa), but the explusion is on the 1967 referendum. I'll fix it shortly; please leave a response if any here. Regards, Middayexpress (talk) 17:27, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
@Middayexpress: The issue is that we were looking at different versions of the same book. In this version, page 360 is about South Africa. It is rather annoying when this happens... Also, what's the problem with using your talk page? Number 57 17:49, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
There's no problem; I had just finished formatting it. On Shillington, the books are apparently the same, but the publishers are different. Regards, Middayexpress (talk) 17:59, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Scott Card racist?[edit]

(Note: Per wp:CANVASSING I am "non-biasedly" advertising a topic for discussion by posting a notice on the ten most recent users who commented on the page in question's talkpage and also the ten most recent users who edited the article in question.)

Commentators continue to reference/allege Card's piece involving a fictional, future Obama's coup d'état by way of urban guirillas as racist (eg see here in Slate, 2013; here, HuffPo, 2013; here, Wired, 2014). Should our article mention this aspect of controversy with regard to the piece here: "Orson Scott Card#Politics"?

(Also see a 2013 blogpost by M Aspan citing this from Card in 2000 rgding allegedly non-racist use of nigga'.)

See discussion here: Talk:Orson Scott Card#RfC: Subject of blp racist?

Dean Court[edit]

I think your cleanup of Dean Court may have removed too much information. Former names of stadiums are surely relevant to the article, both as a matter of historical record and because those names (e.g. Fitness First Stadium) redirect to the article. I wondered if you could revisit your edit and let me know your thoughts. Many thanks. --Jameboy (talk) 22:49, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

@Jameboy: I've expanded the history section significantly, and detailed the former sponsor names. I can't seem to find out when Fitness First stopped sponsoring it though, as this seems to have happened around 2009. Number 57 23:21, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Excellent, that's really good work. I will see if I can find a source for when Fitness First stopped sponsoring it. Cheers. --Jameboy (talk) 16:28, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
@Jameboy: Good stuff. I have a book detailing the history of all the grounds ever to have hosted Football League or Scottish Football League matches, so if you ever want any help expanding anything, let me know. Cheers, Number 57 22:05, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bulgarian electoral code referendum[edit]

Hi Number 57: Are you privy to a merge of Bulgarian electoral code referendum? In your nomination at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bulgarian electoral code referendum, you suggest the potential for a merge to either Elections in Bulgaria or National Assembly (Bulgaria), but don't state it directly. It seemed that you were more for deletion of the article (per the nomination). A user on my talk page stated that a merge close would have been "a better reflection of consensus". However, in your nomination, you alluded to two different merge targets. NorthAmerica1000 05:50, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

@Northamerica1000: I reckon a merge to Elections in Bulgaria is more appropriate, specifically in the Parliamentary election section. Ideally there would be an electoral system section (like Elections in Botswana, which I worked on recently) in the article, so perhaps it could be reworked to feature that. Cheers, Number 57 21:45, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the response. Check out Talk:Elections in Bulgaria#Merge proposal. NorthAmerica1000 21:53, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Danish general election, 1966[edit]

I was just about adding the source, when you reverted my edit. I would really appreciate it, if you (and anyone else) would be a little slower with reverting.--2001:A60:19D7:1701:301A:5645:8FBD:195D (talk) 21:35, 23 December 2014 (UTC)--2001:A60:19D7:1701:301A:5645:8FBD:195D (talk) 21:33, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
