Stop stalking me and stop defacing the Mordred article[edit]

You are really making yourself a nuisance both to me (by posting "welcome to Wikipedia" templates to my talk page, when I have been an editor here for YEARS) and by edit warring with me on the Mordred article. There is absolutely no reason for you to continue to remove the category "Arthurian characters" from the article and replacing it with "Fictional offspring of incestuous relationships". I really think now - especially after reviewing your own talk page - that you are suffering from a mental disorder and should seek professional help. Meanwhile, stop abusing me and the Mordred page. Cagwinn (talk) 02:59, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Please discuss this at Talk:Mordred. PatGallacher (talk) 12:31, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Talk show (disambiguation)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Talk show (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. TucsonDavid (talk) 08:22, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Hello and welcome to Wikipedia - Warning[edit]

You recently accussed me of personal attacks on other editors, reading through your talk page is quite frightening for me as i can see a severe history of problems in almost every department for yourself, however, this did not affect your confidence to come bumbling down to my talk page as if your own discussion page didn't exist. Please don't ever vandalise my talk page again or we may have to take this further and i doubt your talk page quite frankly has the room anyway. Thank you for your comments but if you again try to accuse me of any false insults under the umbrella of political correctness this will have to be take further. Reaper7 (talk) 01:36, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Well, I believe that in the course of your unsourced ramblings on Talk:Kate Middleton you did make unwarranted attacks on other editors, so I believe that the level 1 warning I placed on your talk page was legitmate, but I won't take things any further at present.

Papal Titles[edit]

"I saw it claimed that some Italian titles were awarded by the Pope and are therefore still valid regardless of the view of the Italian government."

I think you are slightly misunderstanding. The Pope created many Papal title on Italians (and others) before the creation of Italy and those titles being Papal survive and continue to be recognised by the Vatican (indeed in occasionally still settles disputes/succession) As to Papal recognition of titles created by the various Kingdoms of Italy I can't say what the modern recognition is - thought they certainly were recognised pre '46.

Manchester Martyrs[edit]

Thanks Pat, For the heads up. I find it amusing you use the word attack as that was one of my points in my piece, when is an "attack" an "event"? I mean you just voiced an opinion that I attacked editors who let's say don't shed a tear at images showing the body parts of dead British soldiers lining the streets of Northern Ireland over the past 40 years. But then at the same time show rabid Islamaphobia at the thoughts of Jihadists launching terrorists attacks on "Christian" Europeans. The bottom line is what you call an attack I call fair criticism of inherent bias in the editorialship of this website and it's clear partisan attitude towards the Troubles. Nearly every article makes the point that the so-called "men of violence" were only doing it to free Ireland of British rule. Seems to me that Al Queda is only trying to do the same and free Muslims from Western control. Whiff of hypocrisy in the air?

Your message has a twinge of WP:IDL because rather than refute me you just gave it the old ad hominem that I am attacker of virtue. If you call my criticism an attack then sorry you need to get a thicker skin if you want to work on this site. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.161.148.12 (talk) 01:23, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

spencer[edit]

Hi pat, whats going on at the spencer article? There is a thread at the BLPN here - your insider comments would be appreciated, thanks. Off2riorob (talk) 15:33, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I see you are blocked, feel free to comment here and I will move your comments to the BLPN for you. Or just wait, I have removed the disputed content anyways, it was uncited, pretty contentious anyways imo. Off2riorob (talk) 15:45, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, now that somebody has explained that they do have legitimate concerns about the content of this article I'll give them the benefit of the doubt at present, I realise this is a BLP, but this sort of thing can be difficult to distinguish from vandalism. You will see that I did appeal to however it was to explain their changes on the IP's talk page. PatGallacher (talk) 15:57, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

No worries, thanks for explaining. There is a pattern of similar additions emerging from the dynamic range that added it there, thanks for commenting. Off2riorob (talk) 16:07, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for violation of 1RR at 1948 Palestinian exodus. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you would like to be unblocked, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first. Magog the Ogre (talk) 15:42, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I think this was a mistake on my part, I didn't realise that rejecting dubious changes using reviewer status was itself covered by the 1RR, although this sort of issue might be explained more clearly. However I'm not going to make a fuss over a 24-hour block. PatGallacher (talk)

Well I'll unblock you if you agree to self-revert. The article is a bit of a mess so I apologize, I've chosen to be heavy-handed. And the edit didn't look dubious to me. Magog the Ogre (talk) 15:57, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
This is interesting. I was about to reject the same dubious change using reviewer status, having previously, like Pat, made a revert on this article. His act preempted me, otherwise I might have been in the same situation. I think there is a degree of ambiguity/unclarity about such edits, which needs to be resolved explicitly. The specific edit, by the way, is certainly dubious, rejecting as false the description of the pictures on Commons. RolandR (talk) 16:06, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
It is not a get out of a revert condition to claim you were acting as a reviewer, you would have a case if is was a unmitigated BLP violation or very clear vandalism, which this doesn't seem to be, best is if there is a restriction allow uninvolved users to review. Off2riorob (talk) 16:17, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Guys, you do realize that there's a clause that says "Clear vandalism, or edits by anonymous IP editors, may be reverted without penalty" (emphasis mine), right? I'm prepared to unblock. T. Canens (talk) 23:41, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
Ah yes, its there bold as brass on the template. Yes , clearly there was no violation and I support unblock. Off2riorob (talk) 23:48, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
OK, I'll unblock. For future reference, everyone, you can always revert my decision when I'm not around if there's consensus like this; no need to stand on process. I totally missed that clause about IP edits; it's rather buried in the text. My apologies to Pat. Magog the Ogre (talk) 00:00, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Hi PatGallacher

You removed the {{Notability}} tag from the above-captioned article with the sole explanation that it was "a joke". I have replaced it. The current article doesn't establish notability, and my own media search was unable to find significant coverage. If you wish to remove it again, please provide more substantive commentary on why the tag is inapplicable on the article's talk page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Savannah Phillips[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Savannah Phillips requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay.

Nomination of Heather Mills (journalist) for deletion[edit]

The article Heather Mills (journalist) is being discussed concerning whether it is suitable for inclusion as an article according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Heather Mills (journalist) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Rob (talk) 19:15, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Moving William the Lion[edit]

Pat, can I ask that the article William the Lion be moved back to its location. I will do this myself, but it is better that you do it. It was stable at that location. If you choose not to respect a 64 month name as stable it may work for your own POV in this particular case, but you'll find that the precedent undermines later positions you take AND creates instability in Wikipedia in general. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 01:19, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

To my mind a move which was made without proper discussion around 6 months ago does not trump the most recent formal move discussion. PatGallacher (talk) 01:53, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
See WP:BRD and WP:SILENCE. The current name is the established now, having been established for well over the normal time. A RM three years ago only questionably close when we had different guidelines is irrelevant. You are experienced enough to know that once a page is at a location for 1 month or longer, it is generally recognized as the new default location. Transgressing this Wikipedia etiquette is short-sighted. Though it may benefit your position here, it won't benefit others later and will cause a break-down of a custom that helps neutralize article instability. Deacon of Pndapetzim (Talk) 02:25, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
I have re-moved the article to William the Lion and protected it for a week in the hope of preventing a move war. I realise this is the "wrong" version from you point of view but it is clear that the alternative is currently controversial and needs to go through WP:RM. Similar notes sent to others involved.

Dudimose[edit]

I noticed that you reverted my redirect to Dedumose II. I just wanted to point out that these people are one and the same. The spelling Dusimose is outdated and the article did not include the latest research by scholars such as Ryholt and Bennett. But I see your point. I did a quick search and Dudimose is referred to in other articles (with mistakes I think?) Not sure where to go to discuss how to clean this up. --AnnekeBart (talk) 00:28, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

After looking at it again, I still think the redirect is the way to go. The king is equated with Dedumose II. The original Dudimose article is not well written, and not well referenced. The only source mentioned is Rohl, which is considered fringe. The information about Dedumose's identfication with Tutimaios is mentioned in the Dedumose II article. And this is not generally accepted by Egyptologists. I honestly see no justification keeping the old article around. --AnnekeBart (talk) 01:08, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Revert[edit]

You just participated in an edit war without using the talk page with an edit summary saying "it looks like" even though it really is objectionable. Portions of it might be acceptable but you are now part of the problem.Cptnono (talk) 11:52, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

The previous edit which I reverted did not make any reference to the talk page either. PatGallacher (talk) 11:57, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
So? There actually is a discussion. Just say you made a mistake and we can forget about it.Cptnono (talk) 12:05, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Are you going out of your way to be disruptive and/or upset that someone brought up your mistake? There is a talk page that has been used by other editors besides you and the now blocked editor. Further reverts on your part will lead to a request to have you blocked from the topic area since you are making the situation worse. You also reverted something that has support on the talk page so learn to use it.Cptnono (talk) 06:01, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Follow-up: I planned on filing an ANIt o get you notified of the arbitration case. You are already aware of it from the block situation awhile back. No more shenanigans. If you are going to refuse to use the talk page and make reverts that support edits from a disruptive editor then I will be glad to see you gone from the topic. Please just use the talk page since most established editors are able to figure it out.Cptnono (talk) 06:13, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Wrong person...[edit]

You sent a message to this IP stating than an article had been edited badly. Seems like a silly thing to do as what were the chances of the message reaching the correct person?

Your recent edit to The Chrysalids[edit]

Just thought I'd drop you a note regarding this edit you made, with the edit summary “don’t think this is crucial”. Personally, I think these concise sentences provide a useful and interesting context for understanding this book; for example, the fact that this work precedes Midwich Cuckoos, in which he further develops the telepathy theme. The sentences may not be “crucial”, but I would like to make a case for their inclusion. I was tempted simply to revert your change, with a terse edit summary, but I always prefer to act in co-operation with other experienced editors. Would you agree to reverting your change and putting back this insight into the context of this book within the author's body of work? Sincerely, — Hebrides (talk) 06:53, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't think this is crucial enough to go into the intro, but feel free to expand at the point it is. PatGallacher (talk) 12:15, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Caning in Malaysia[edit]

Amnesty International is certainly a reliable source for what Amnesty International thinks, but that doesn't mean its statements have to be taken as incontrovertible objective truth. It is a pressure group after all, not a neutral observer. I didn't remove anything they said, I merely made it more clear that this is what they allege, and others may or may not agree. I think my version is therefore more NPOV. -- Alarics (talk) 13:40, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

It might be different if we were trying to list all the parodies of something which has been parodied several times. Also, in context the killing of Grace Archer was important in the history of British popular culture, although now only half-remembered. PatGallacher (talk) 00:43, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

I take your point but I'm not convinced that The Bowmans belongs in this article, since it surely is more closely connected with The Archers itself, and that is the linking problem. Fair enough to link it from The Archers, but here, I see it as being off-topic. If there were more examples that I could point to right now, there would be scope to have an article in its own right, but with only a handful at best, I think they should descend topically from "The Archers" and not cross unnecessary boundaries. But then, what is my opinion worth any more? Rodhullandemu 01:03, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure why you're asking me. You can raise this at Wikipedia:requests for page protection if you like.

My Dirty Username[edit]

Hello Pat after i saw this message i decided to review the username policy again and here is why i think im keeping it and if you prove me wrong i'll gladly ask for a change in username.

Reason 1:Promotional Username-this would not apply to me because my name is not promoting a group,website,company or product.

Reason 2:Offensive Usernames-My username is not directed at any kind of specific person,Country or Culture and editors shouldn't worry about the name of the person who edited the article they shoul only be worried about correcting mistakes, adding new info or ending vandalism.

Reason 3:Disruptive Usernames-my username is not a troll on Wikipedia or any user,it is not intended for disruption as users should not worry only admins and the words Jiggle Me Sacks are not Profanity because if i wanted something worse i could have put JiggleMeBalls.

Reason 4:Misleading Usernames-my username does not impersonate other people nor does it include an ip address or timestamps,and in now way does it mislead people to think i am higher than wikipedia or any of its users or supporters.

and once again if you prove me wrong i'll admit defeat and ask for a name change

Helena Bonham Carter[edit]

A targeted search (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=JW5&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=%22problems+after+having+a+baby+and+bladder+control+is+minimal%22+%22helena+bonham+carter%22+-thelondonpaper+-dailydiapers&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=) yielded more than a hundred references to this quotation outside of the The London Paper. Considering that this condition is reality for many women after childbirth (as evidenced by Wikipedia's own articles), it seems fair to me to include this information about her personal life. However, you appear to be a senior editor, so perhaps you might be able to explain your reasoning to the contrary.KlappCK (talk) 20:47, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

I am not a "senior editor". I am cautious about including this in a BLP, we would need a clear reference that she has gone public about this. PatGallacher (talk) 20:55, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

PatGallacher, I assume you are referring to [BLP] guidelines, but to which one in particular are your referring? As you've had thousands of edits (kinda' what I meant by "senior"), I was hoping you might be able to educate me on some content guidelines. There is similar content about the personal life of Mary Lou Retton, so I am unclear as to whether or not this material is fair game.

Second Karaite community[edit]

In this edit you imply that there is another large Karaite community in the world. Where? Debresser (talk) 21:45, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

I am really not an expert. I know about the Israeli Karaite community. There are Karaites in the Crimea as well, historically, but I doubt whether they are organised into any sort of a community. I'll try to look around at the karaite websites, and if needed, will adjust the text of the article accordingly. Debresser (talk) 08:14, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
See Karaites#Karaite_Judaism_by_region that there are various Karaite communities. I also found quite a few English karaite websites, including one of Karaite Jews of America. Nevertheless, the resulting edit was a surprising one. See the editsummary for an explanation. Debresser (talk) 08:27, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Pope Joan[edit]

I must humbly request something. You will either provide a citation for changing the commonly used term "Dark Ages", by showing where it is published "that scholars no longer use the term"... or else leave the wording as-is. I have compromised by editing it to "the early 8th century A.D." - and please do not tell me scholars no longer use "A.D." because it is still used... as is "Dark Ages". I'm beginning to see a pattern of attempted ownership of this article. I truly hope that is not the case. Djathinkimacowboy 06:11, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

It seems something weird is guarding that article. I have requested a fresh eye on this. I'm tired of working to correct the grammar that would shame a grade school dropout, only to have it reverted by you or that other editor. Djathinkimacowboy 22:57, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I think the article Dark Ages (historiography) is a reasonable starting point for this issue. I do not intend to revert legitimate attempts to improve the grammar. I suggest further discussion should continue at the talk page for Pope Joan. PatGallacher (talk) 23:36, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Only popping by to concur. It would have been useful for you to have done that in the first place. Djathinkimacowboy 23:54, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I will not come here to warn you again. Pat, you seem to have a problem with my adding the specific century this legend is said to take place. Here[[4]] you seem to me to be engaged in edit warring. I will ask you to stop until you can find a citation that places the legend outside the early 9th century A.D. You do not own this article. It seems to me you are trying to dictate exactly what words can and cannot be used in editing there, and that is wrong of you. Please read the talk[5], and be so kind as to communicate there.

Pope Joan[edit]

Pat, just because I made a critical comment on the talk page doesn't mean you should have gone and reverted again. The whole point is that it's time to stop reverting each other and discuss the issue until we can reach consensus. There's no hurry to fix the article--no harm is being done if that phrase stays in there for a few more days while we sort out the details. I very intentionally only left a message on talk, rather than actually editing the article, to keep this as a discussion, not an edit war. You've made 5 reverts to the article in the past 2 days, and though you've never crossed 3RR, you're definitely coming very close to doing so, and to meeting the general definition of edit-warring. Please just focus on discussion now, and once a consensus is clear, then make whatever changes need to be made. Qwyrxian (talk) 00:09, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

The 5 edits were spread out over a period of over 4 days, but that may be nit-picking or wikilawyering. However I will hold my fire for the moment. PatGallacher (talk) 00:39, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Prince Paul Philippe of Romania[edit]

Dear PatGallacher, I saw you have undone my changes on HRH Prince Paul of Romania Wikipedia page. I am the Executive Assistant of HRH Prince Paul of Romania and my name is Carmen Stefan. The changes I have made are all based on documents and references that we are providing, in order to clear all the false information on HRH Prince Paul of Romania and his family. The information I have introduced has not harmed anyone and are completely neutral. Because this is my first day on Wikipedia, I hope I have not offended you by contacting you directly and I could use your help and support. Best regards, Carmen Stefan Executive Assistant HRH Prince Paul of Romania E-mail: paulofromania@gmail.com Website: www.princepaulofromania.ro — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefanmarin07 (talkcontribs) 19:19, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

I suggest you start by reading Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. PatGallacher (talk) 00:10, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

About that "Romanian Orthodox Christians" category - no, we don't (yet) have hard evidence for it, but consider the following facts. The preponderance of Romanians (and of Russians, which his mother was) are Orthodox. His grandfather was definitely Orthodox, while his father was buried on the grounds of an Orthodox monastery. We also know for a fact that he married in an Orthodox ceremony and baptized his son as an Orthodox. He has met with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople, and he spent Christmas Eve with Patriarch Daniel of Romania at the latter's official residence. And the IP who is probably closely connected to him confirmed for me the prince's religion. As for the Jesuit school, he has said his father sent him there for the "tough" education.

So no, we don't have something citable, and I can understand keeping the category out until we do. But there does seem a 99%+ probability that he is in fact Orthodox. - Biruitorul Talk 03:06, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Dear Sir,

I kindly ask you to remove the name "Paul Lambrino"; you are violating Wikipedia's guidelines. There are NO legitimate or major "English" language sources which refer to HRH Prince Paul as "Paul Lambrino". The sources in the Romanian media which were cited earlier cannot be considered as legitimate as they in ONE single article refer to him with various names (i.e., Paul of Romania, Prince Paul, Paul Lambrino, Paul-Philippe Hohenzollern"). In one article the journalist even wrote that he "officially" was "Paul-Philippe Hohenzollern", albeit there was not reference as to how the latter was his official name, I can simply strongly suspect the journalist used Wikipedia as a source!!! Do you realise the importance of the matter? Neither his Romanian nor his British passport state the name "Paul-Philippe Hohenzollern".

Furthermore, in the articles you cited are virulent towards Prince Paul (pls read the content), therefore they cannot be viewed as legitimate and reliable sources as per Wikipedia's own guidelines!!! In one he is even called "self-styled" "Prince of Romania". His British passport states that the holder is HRH Prince Paul of Romania, how can he be "self-styled" if a government recognises him as such? The content to the article goes to bias against Prince Paul. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.116.225.193 (talk) 16:10, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

I am not particularly hostile towards this person, I'm inclined to think his father and grandmother were badly treated by the Romanian authorities, but that does not justify bending the stick the other way. Raise any issues on the article's talk page. PatGallacher (talk) 16:20, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Dear Sir,

I shall raise my issues immediately on the article's page.

Please beware of the language you use which goes for bias against HRH Prince Paul of Romania. "I am not particularly hostile", but you are hostile indeed? "I'm inclined to think his father and grandmother were badly treated..."; that is simply not relevant here. Your subjective opinion does not matter, it is a matter of analysing sources objectively which you are not doing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.116.225.193 (talk) 17:24, 28 January 2012 (UTC)


Please, the reference to "Paul Lambrino" must be removed!!! He was born in Paris under the name "Paul-Philippe DE HOHENZOLLERN". The article lacks the predicate preceding his FORMER surname, but that is a matter which he is going to take up by contacting directly the Wikipedia Foundation.

He does not use the name "Philippe" at all, so why are you so persistent in adding it in the title? With other subjects only the calling name is used; even in sources which refer to him as "Paul Lambrino", the "Philippe" is not used.

In regards to the name "Paul Lambrino"; the articles which are being utilised as reference are articles which are rather virulent towards HRH Prince Paul, hence, unacceptable as references for Wikipedia. Additionally, how come a few article outweigh the fact that Prince Paul is known under his actual name and title by major and reliable newspapers in Romania and elsewhere. According to Wikipedia emphasis ought to be given to English language sources when available; this is the case with Prince Paul who is known as Prince Paul of Romania in major newspapers in the UK.

Please also notice that in the past, HRH Prince Paul has been named "Paul Lambrino" by "mistake" even by prominent journalists who later had to retract themselves because they lost cases in courts of law. In 2000 he won a lawsuit against Frédéric Mitterand, in 2005 against Stéphane Bern. The later is BY NO MEANS a threat against Wikipedia or any of its administrators, but simply facts. Unlike his father, he has never been born the surname "Lambrino". That name is used by people who dispute his claim to the Royal House of Romania, but that is not clear from this article. The copies of the court decision shall be forwaded to Wikipedia Foundation so the name issue is settled for good.

The fact the article states "also known as Prince Paul of Romania or Paul Lambrino" implies he is known by about the same degree by either name!!! That is rather problematic because it simply is not true. The Government of Romania, foreign royal houses, his friends and family as well as the SERIOUS media outlets address him as Prince Paul of Romania. You only need to google him in several languages, and you shall find a plethora of articles about him with that name (i.e., Prince Paul of Romania, Printul Paul al Romaniei, Prince Paul de Roumanie, Príncipe Paul de Rumania, Paul Romania herceg, Prins Paul av Rumänien).

You can insist upon mentioning the fact that he is also known as "Paul Lambrino" but in that case, and for the sake of neutrality and fairness one ought to clarify that name is exclusively used by people who dispute his claims to the Royal House of Romania. Moreover, that in the past, HRH Prince Paul has taken legal actions against such individuals and won (once again, it is not a threat, simply a fact which needs to be added if you insist in mentioning the legally non-existent name "Paul Lambrino"). The later appellation also has no place in a sentence "also known as Prince Paul of Romania or..." because it misleads people to believe he is equally and acceptably known by both names — Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.116.225.193 (talk) 13:18, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

A tag has been placed on Khader Adnan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". 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 page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. He to Hecuba (talk) 20:49, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

I nominated the page because it had no sources and was written with an obvious slant to the point of slandering the film in topic. It was all opinion and written with quotations around words to influence meaning and felt it had to be removed until it was properly rewritten. LegacyOfValor (talk) 23:42, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

It would have been better to raise a speedy for some other reason, a G10 should only be used when the reputation of a person is being disparaged in some way. From the text as it was, there was no obvious BLP violation or person being threatened or disparaged. It is only possible to slander a person, not a film. The draft has now been userfied so that PatGallacher can improve sources and re-create when ready, however a G10 seemed an excessive warning when a lack of sources could have been resolved by a PROD or a more neutral A7 if you felt notability was at question. Mistakes happen, so let's learn from this example and move on.
I would like to extend an apology to PatGallacher who appears to have attempted to create a valid article in good faith and been rewarded with a claim that they were attacking someone. This sort of mix up can easily happen, please don't be discouraged from continuing to create articles, including those on tricky topics. Drafting in userspace is often a good idea whilst you are still hunting for good quality reliable sources. Thanks (talk) 23:56, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

I notice that the administrator has now reversed the deletion of this article. I am not too bothered about this on my own behalf, I recognise that as an experienced Wikipedian things don't often go smoothly, but some newbies might be put off if they create articles in good faith and then they find this stroppy warning on their talk page accusing them of BLP violations etc..

WP:INTDABLINK[edit]

Greetings. Intentional disambiguation linking is mandated by WP:MOSDAB, WP:INTDABLINK, to remove false positives from lists of links needing repair. The relevant policy, arrived at through extensive discussion and consensus forging, clearly dictates that intentional links to disambiguation pages shall be piped through the "Foo (disambiguation)" redirect so that our disambiguators can go about their job of fixing the 800,000 errant disambig links. Cheers! bd2412 T 05:20, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

That strikes me as an odd approach, but I take it people have their reasons. PatGallacher (talk) 17:58, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
There are two reasons, primarily. First, if a link is to the "Foo (disambiguation)" redirect instead of to the disambiguation page "Foo", then it is immediately apparent that the link is intentional, and does not need to be fixed. Second, where the link is unpiped (as it generally is in disambiguation page see also sections), it alerts the reader that the link will be taking them to another disambiguation page, so they do not expect to be taken to an actual article by that title. Cheers again! bd2412 T 18:51, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Hello. When another editor objects to speedy deletion, the proper course of action if you still want to delete it is to bring the matter to WP:Articles for deletion, not to wait two weeks and apply another speedy deletion tag. Thank you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 12:32, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I may have slipped up to some extent, but I may not be the only person to have done so. It looks as if the page was speedily deleted, but somebody re-created it. However, I'm leaning to the view that maybe we can keep this page. PatGallacher (talk) 12:40, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

It was re-created because you hadn't contacted the creator; you didn't because you knew I'd contest it. You had already nominated it for speedy deletion and prodded it - removed by two different editors - so you knew it should have gone to afd. It was re-created because it's both a page which clearly meets the guidelines at MOS:D, and because you should not have nominated it as uncontroversial, when you knew full well it was not. I'm shocked by your behaviour in all this. Boleyn (talk) 18:33, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I think I was getting a bit confused, but I wasn't trying to pull a fast one on anyone. PatGallacher (talk) 20:23, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

You've again nominated a page I created for speedy deletion without informing me, even after I've left three messages about this behaviour on your Talk page within the last couple of weeks. Please stop. Your reason didn't make any sense to me, at least. If you still think it should be deleted, please take it to AfD - and if you do, let the creator (i.e. me) know! It's basic courtesy, when someone's taken the trouble to create a page, and it's in the guidelines. Boleyn (talk) 16:13, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

League Changes[edit]

Dunfermline and Dundee have not resigned there place therefore at the moment there is no position available in Div1 for Airdrie or Div2 for Stranraer. Rangers have said there future is uncertain as they don't know if SPL2 will be formed. The Herald and Channel four are stating that this is likely to be put forward.Edinburgh Wanderer 14:24, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

I am going by a news announcement. The possible formation of SPL2 is a couple of seasons away. It is now surely certain that either Dunfermline or Dundee will be in the SPL next season, even if we don't know which. PatGallacher (talk) 14:28, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

As a regular contributor to the Airdrie United article I was tempted to add something in today regarding the vote taken by The Scottish Football League and the implications that vote may have on Airdrie. Although an announcement was made by the SFL that Airdrie would be playing in Division One and (my understanding) the clubs voted to accept any forthcoming resignation of Dundee or Dunfermline to allow such a vacancy for Airdrie, the media seem to be saying this saga has not finished its course. As it stands (on 13 July) the SPL have not accepted either Dundee or Dunfermline, so although it's likely to happen, it's not a done deal. Perhaps gentlemen we could agree to "abstain" from any changes in the article until this is signed, sealed and delivered? Centre Stand (talk) 19:16, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Actually it was league recon that was a couple of seasons away. SPL2 was a short term solution to the problem although very unlikely. The main point is until Dundee or Dunfermline resign the change cannot take place no club not even Rangers can be placed into Div3. Their resignation will be accepted but it has not happened. Its good faith because some sources don't make it clear that the SFA have yet to ratify or that no resignation has taken place the better ones do though. The SFL statement does not cover this section yet[8] the Clyde statement is spot on tonight they hope its over but they think not.[9]. The BBC source says poised to be promoted and they hope the SFA and SPL will go with the decision.[10]Edinburgh Wanderer 22:33, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Sports are a special case. For instance, we use the name "Chinese Taipei" in sports contexts, even thought that name is not used in non-sports contexts. I reverted the undiscussed move to Ivory Coast at the Olympics, it should go to an RM. (For instance, there is currently an RM proposal to move Myanmar football articles to Burma titles) For things like Economy of Ivory Coast, I didn't revert it although some would argue that even that should go through an RM (the precedent here would be articles like Flag of China, which went the RM route even though People's Republic of China had been moved to China some time earlier. — P.T.

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Rangers F.C.". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 16 August 2012.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Maher Abu Remeleh[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Maher Abu Remeleh has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. j⚛e deckertalk 17:08, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

DEFAULTSORT and Chinese names[edit]

Removing DEFAULTSORT from Chinese names as you did on Huang Qian‎ is not correct according to WP:SUR. I think the reason is that it does not sort correctly w.r.t. a name like Al Huang ({{DEFAULTSORT:Huang, Al}}). Even if this were not the case I don't see the point in removing the correct default sort as it is valuable documentation. Quale (talk) 06:38, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

October 2012[edit]

Your recent editing history at Silvio_Berlusconi 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.
Please wait for consensus on the talk page before re-adding these POV tags. Thanks, T. trichiura Infect me 20:44, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

I realise that there is a dispute arising in relation to this article, but it sometimes takes two sides to make a heated dispute. I don't think I have broke the 3RR. I'm happy to continue talking on the talk page at present. However I think describing my edits as POV is itself somewhat POV. PatGallacher (talk) 20:56, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Interesting logic, but wrong. It has been described as POV because it's not accurate according to Italian legal theory, and therefore calling him a tax evader introduces POV. The important bit is that you stop re-adding the tag, as you repeatedly have done, while the discussion is ongoing. (Please read the notice more carefully regarding 3RR). T. trichiura Infect me 21:01, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
I only reverted twice, another Wikipedian who has nothing to do with me also reverted twice. However I will continue discussing at present. PatGallacher (talk) 21:09, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Pat, I find it rather silly that you were given a "warning" by Trichuris trichiura, who has twice removed the categories: [11], [12]. Trichuris trichiura should beware of WP:BOOMERANG. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 23:03, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Rotherham by-election[edit]

Well now I don't know what to do.....

When the story broke earlier today, MacShane hadn't resigned, and knowing how Wikipedia's rapid response corps behave - particularly irresponsible IP address editors - I created and redirected Rotherham by-election, 2012 and Rotherham by-election, 2013. This would, I hoped, put a pause on people setting up new articles whilst we didn't have an actual resignation, not to mention a date.

I now see that Rotherham by-election 2012 has been fleshed out, so I can't really do much about that, but I hope we can stop too many editors pouring in with vandalism. See Next Middlesbrough by-election for one solution to the problem of not having a date yet, whilst having editors who want to create an article.

How do you think we should proceed, if indeed we need to?

(I'll copy this message to editors who worked on both 2012 and 2013 by-election articles)

Grand Duchy and Grand Duchy[edit]

I have seen the discussion about the deletion only two hours ago. What's the problem with that content? Is it usourced or what? What's the difference between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Monarchy of Bavaria or the Grand Duchy of Hesse? Are they larger than Tuscany or what? --Chiorbone da Frittole (talk) 02:20, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Yes, a crucial problem was that this line of succession is unsourced. I am in the process of going through these lines of succession to former monarchies, in my view many of them are not encyclopedic and candidates for deletion, but I am prepared to take this in easy stages and I recognise that each must be considered on its individual merits. Hesse looks like a likely candidate for deletion, not sure about Bavaria? PatGallacher (talk) 02:24, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Kingdom of Bavaria: 1806–1918 (112 years). Grand Duchy of Hesse: 1806–1918 (112 years). Grand Duchy of Baden: 1806–1918 (112 years). Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin: 1815-1918 (103 years). Kingdom of Hanover: 1814-1866 (52 years) . Kingdom of Albania: 1928-1939 (11 years!). All these reigns have their "line of succession throne" wiki page. Grand Duchy of Tuscany: 1569-1859 (290 years, but it's even older, because Grand Duchy of Tuscany succeeded the Duchy of Florence). Anyway, i will look for some sources in the next days. --Chiorbone da Frittole (talk) 02:57, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Emperor Bokassa[edit]

Further to the move. I noted there appeared to be a consensus on the talk page in favour of the royal title for the article. Perhaps an appropriate compromise would be for the article title to remain Jean-Badel Bokassa, but the first line of the article in bold to read "Bokassa I of Central Africa"? There is a tendency to say, "he wasn't really a monarch," but this is at odds with the recognition his country received from the rest of the world, including America. --Counter-revolutionary (talk) 13:50, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

The article James Patrick (sociologist) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of notability in article and none found in a search. BLP, unsourced since April 2012.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

MelanieN (talk) 22:04, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello! I see that you have removed the Proposed Deletion tag, and found another reference. I will let it stand, although the references might not meet the requirement for independent reliable sources if challenged. But I have some advice. I see from your talk page that a lot of your articles get prodded. I think you could avoid a lot of that if you would cite the references properly as inline citations, rather than putting them in External Links. If you're not familiar with how to cite references, here's a quick primer: 1) click on the "cite" button above the edit window. 2) choose an appropriate format, such as "web" or "news". 3) fill in the blanks. 4) put your cursor in the appropriate place in the text (right after some fact that is supported by the reference). 5) click "add citation". That's important! If you don't add the citation to the text, it will disappear and you'll have to do it all over. Then to set up a place for these reference citations to be listed, add ==References== or ==Notes==, and underneath that put <references /> or {{reflist}}. You can click "show preview" to make sure you did it right, if you want (I always do), but be sure to click "save page" before finishing! Hope this helps - and forgive me if I am telling you what you already know. --MelanieN (talk) 23:17, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice to inform you that a tag has been placed on 2013 Scottish Challenge Cup Final requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 00:47, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

Normally I display a friendly approach even to people who try to delete my articles as they're usually wrong, but this comment displays shockingly poor judgement for an editor who seems to have experience and a usual good insight on here and as a result I've been unusually sarcastic in my AFD retorts, especially as I did tell you it would get blown away at AFD as it's notable. Notability is decided by coverage in sources, nothing else. In future, please kindly ask me to expand something if you believe it is not notable. I'd be happy to do do amicably. I wish you all the best, but please try not to make such shocking comments again, if we all thought like that we'd only cover the UK and the US and ignore the rest of the world as they're not English!!♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 18:17, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Ways to improve Harriet's Back in Town[edit]

Hi, I'm TCMemoire. PatGallacher, thanks for creating Harriet's Back in Town!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. IMDb is not considered a reliable source; this sitcom needs more references because it does not currently meet the notability guideline.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. TCMemoire (talk) 02:44, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Vpered[edit]

The purpose of speedy deletion isn't to do an end run around a discussion, but skip discussion where the outcome is entirely obvious. WP:CSD#G6 says it can be used on disambiguation pages that disambig fewer than two pages (so trying to apply it to a page that disambigs two is obviously inapplicable). WP:RFD often keeps Article (disambiguation) redirects to Article because they're useful and unharmful. If you have some compelling reason it needs to be deleted, you could try a discussion, but the outcome might go either way. WilyD 06:15, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
