Naga City[edit]

Good Day to you, dear P199. First of all, I would want to go directly to the point. Naga City's article in Wikipedia does have some mistakes, but they are not false, and are verifiable with references, links, and pictures. If you may wish so, remove the bold prints, but please, I humbly beg for your mercy, not to take away the pictures, for they represent the truth from the city. They are referenced to wikimedia anyway, but please, do not remove the pictures, and the other sourced, and verifiable truths about Naga City

May you read this solemnly, and consult your humble conscience if there is a need. Just post back in the section, and I will find time, to have a reply to you. ---110.93.93.250

  • Thank you for adding many nice pictures to the article. The pictures are not a problem but the strong propaganda tone of the info is. See my further reply at Talk:Naga, Camarines Sur#Clean up. -- P 1 9 9   14:21, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Canada Census[edit]

Hello right back my friend. Regarding your observations, wouldn't having the additional census infobox be information overkill? The same basic population info appears in the Census table.

As far as the big thing, do you think it's too much? I find the smaller print (even bold) doesn't stand out enough. Plus, I didn't want to make a header for it that would appear in the contents section. BTW: what is inconsistent formatting?

Let me know. Thanks. Gordalmighty (talk) 23:10, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for catching the vandalism before the one I reverted to on President of the Philippines. I usually do check previous versions, but there was a ridiculous amount of vandalism going on last night and only a handful of vandalism fighters, so I wasn't as careful in checking if previous versions were free of vandalism as I usually would have been. My apologies. AddWittyNameHere (talk) 14:19, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

  • @AddWittyNameHere: No problem. I was a little harsh in my comment. I too have made this same mistake before. Regards, -- P 1 9 9   14:26, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. It sometimes annoys me as well if I see someone revert to an also obviously vandalized version, but indeed, it's a mistake all of us make once in a while, especially when high-speed reverting vandalism for a while, I'd guess. Last night was crazy. Between reverts, warns and posts to the AIV and UAA, I racked up 120+ edits in maybe 1h30m. Have a nice day, AddWittyNameHere (talk) 14:39, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
  • @AddWittyNameHere: Wow. Fighting vandalism is a full-time task! What tool do you use to monitor it? -- P 1 9 9   15:31, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
  • Depends on the situation. I usually use Huggle to do the obvious work (like people randomly removing a couple thousand bytes of information from an article, replacing words with obscenities, making personal attacks against others and introducing deliberate factual errors (like changing someone's weight to "100000lbs" or someone's height to "19ft") and similar stuff), open the page in-browser if I see a good-faith change that has to be reverted or have reason to suspect subtle vandalism, vandalism in previous edits or am plain unsure if something is vandalism (like additional information in a referenced paragraph, where I have to check the source to see if the added information is covered, or quotes with expletives that may or may not belong in said quote, removal of seemingly sourced information with the claim that it's not covered by the source) and, if something has to be reverted, usually use Twinkle to revert it and leave a warning if necessary. I usually do the same if I have to comb through several revisions to find the last non-vandalized revision. Occasionally, I use my WP:Rollback-privilege in its pure form, but that's almost only when I'm in-browser and dealing with a vandalism-only account or IP that keeps doing the same edit to the same page and where I have no reason to check the actual edit in-depth.
  • I also tend to use the Recent Changes page and the filter logs. Once in a while, I keep an eye on the User Creation log to scan for problematic usernames, or more commonly, the New Editors Contributions log (which I scan for problematic usernames, usernames that show blatant COI when combined with their edit(s) and for vandalism). If I find an IP or user engaging in more varied vandalism, or subtle vandalism, I usually check their contributions as well to see if there's anything else that needs reverting, though I usually only have time to do that if the Huggle revert-per-minute rate is 8 or below. (I suppose it's no huge surprise when I say that by my estimate, about 70% of my edits are in some way related to dealing with problematic edits or editors? XD) AddWittyNameHere (talk) 20:07, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Nice work on merges[edit]

It's nice to run into someone else with the same project. You, User:GenQuest, myself and a handful of others seem to be digging hard into that backlog. My goal is to get it down to less than 10,000. Nice to see that you've joined the project. --NickPenguin(contribs) 03:35, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

  • @NickPenguin: Thank you. There are a few other projects I work on, but I have worked on the merge backlog from time to time before. I just thought it would be time to add my name to the WikiProject. Kudos to you too, because merging is a tedious task. BTW, after a merge, you need to add the {{merged-to}} and {{merged-from}} templates on the talk pages. Regards, -- P 1 9 9   14:15, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Hull[edit]

Thanks for the thanks. What I added is mostly about Hull's fame as a wild place to drink. But there was a small section already in the article about it being a POW location during the war. Does the POW paragraph look awkward, mixed in with all the bar and drinking stuff? I'm wondering if it needs it's own section. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 19:16, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Recent Changes to Waterbodies[edit]

No disrespect intended but......really? I think you're being a bit too picky over things I am doing to improve these pages. I have already conceded in the issue of large font 8-way headers. Making the waterway fonts blue and surrounding the name with ~~ watermarks ~~ is only there to improve the page. Please stop reverting edits only because they are visually unappealing to you (and you do appear to be the only one). I enjoy editing Wikipedia, but will not waste any more time if this is to be a regular occurrence. Sorry dude, really not pleased. Gordalmighty (talk) 23:55, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

  • @Gordalmighty: Sorry you feel that way and I don't mean to aggravate you. I do appreciate your efforts on Quebec municipality articles. But my point is that changes like this affect not just the Quebec municipalities. The {{geographic location}} is used in 10s of 1000s of articles. So by changing the look it is no longer consistent with other places. Why should only Quebec have unique formatting? These geo templates were in place already a long time (even before my involvement), why reinvent the wheel now? Normally changes that affect so many pages should be discussed first to get consensus (WP:BRD). Moreover visual changes are highly personal (thus to consider them improvements is also personal), so if we don't keep them consistent, the next editor will change it all according to his/her preferences! Anyway, besides tweaking templates, there is still so much to do on these articles, like adding real content. -- P 1 9 9   13:24, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks for the reply P199. I will suspend this part of my edits for the moment. I may consider one day getting a concensus on it (however it's done), but I'm dropping it for now. Sorry for the shit. Peace. Gordalmighty (talk) 23:46, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Disruptive editing[edit]

I sincerely apologize my cousin has been doing to you, and wikipedia. I traveled to Manila, while my cousin used my account to attack, and bash, and worse, vandalize the legitimacy of the articles he has disturbed. I have already changed my password, in order for my cousin not to enter it anymore. Please just forgive him for the trouble my cousin has committed

Thanks for messaging me...Dominic McArthur — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dominic McArthur (talkcontribs) 13:18, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Official names of Bacolod in other languages[edit]

Can you please explain the rationale of why you keep on reverting edits with regards to the other official names of Bacolod City in Hiligaynon, Tagalog, and Spanish, the other official languages in the city? If there is no need to translate the name "city" in EN wiki, then you also have to delete these official names from ALL Philippine cities, not just Bacolod. By this regard, I will revert your reverts on Bacolod's page until you can give either a suitable explanation and apply the same to other Philippine city pages. Thanks. RepublicaNegrense (talk) 23:04, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

  • @RepublicaNegrense: Think about what you just wrote: Does this city really have 4 official names in 4 languages? No. It is merely the translation of the same term "city". As English WP, we don't need to know what city is any other language. If someone needs to know, they can click on the links for the foreign-language Wikipedias. And yes, me and other editors are trying very hard to clean this up from other PH cities (and municipalities!!!) as well (for example see contributions by WikiEditor50). But I can't have every LGU on my watchlist, and we can't keep up with editors who revert! -- P 1 9 9   01:12, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Are you applying this merely for Philippine wiki entries for Philippine LGUs or is this a universal decision? Let me cite you non-Philippine cities: Ceuta and Melilla. The different words for cities is not just merely there to translate but are official names of the city. Thus far, by city ordinance, the Hiligaynon, Tagalog, and English names of the city have co-equal status, while there is no repealing ordinance that made the Spanish name not official anymore. As far as I know, you only led me to another user talk, not a current discussion. If there was any discussion page about this being participated by other wiki editors, please link me to that one first. Just like how "city" was removed from the header title of each city that does not have the same name as the mother province and each edit cited a discussion page. Thanks.

Protection for the Legazpi Page[edit]

Dear P199,

The Legazpi Page has suffered a series of serious cases of vandalism, most of which were done by the user Dominic MacArthur. I humbly request from you sir/ma'm to please block his account and his IP address. Thank you.Unique Albay (talk) 09:31, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

P199, edits in Naga, Camarines Sur, Legazpi, Albay, Bicol Region, and other pages, vandalized by User:Unique Albay, has resulted to a total outrage. Some important data, valuable knowledge and sources, regarding the topic, have been tampered with false, and bogus edits done by the said user. May I wish it would not result to edit war, but the user has been stubborn about it's stand. I wish your helpful cooperation to this outrage and help to seek the truth.

Many people have lost credibility to Wikipedia, especially to these pages, because of this insolence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ethan Corrset (talkcontribs) 12:43, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

  • In my defense, I have not included facts and assertions that are baseless or false. I have indicated citations and references for verifiability. Should my edits result into an edit war, I will always be ready and armed with sources that will back up my statements. Although as of the time being, I still don't have all available sources and references, I promise to provide them as soon as I have them. For the violations I have done, please describe what they are so I would know what I should do. Thank you. Unique Albay (talk) 15:16, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Ethan Corrset, may I ask why the statement that Legazpi is the largest in Bicol was deleted? Please explain. In common parlance, largest city of any place in the world refers to the most populous city of that area. Also, there was no mention of "capitol" in my edits. I mentioned "capital." Please explain how a region cannot have a capital when a capital means the seat of government and the administrative center of a certain place. Also, the strategic location part was deleted for no reason! It was not false, just not backed up by sources, which can be provided, although not so easy because government facts in the Philippines are so hard to retrieve! Another deletion was about the Integrated Reorganization Plan of 1972. Why was it deleted? It shows the history behind how Legazpi was chosen as the administrative center of Bicol Region. Do you seriously think we can retrieve a 1972 plan? You must be kidding!Unique Albay (talk) 15:25, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

  • This is not the place to discuss article issues, use the article talk pages! I will provide my thoughts there. -- P 1 9 9   15:51, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
