Talk:Something[edit]

Hi, I fixed your template to Something → Something (Beatles song) which appears to be what you intended. And supported, good call. Cheers. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:58, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

It is. Thanks.Qxukhgiels (talk) 13:58, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Still of the Night (song), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Coda. 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.

Your GA nomination of Walmart[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Walmart you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of TonyTheTiger -- TonyTheTiger (talk) 04:01, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Your SPI case against me[edit]

I do apologise for labelling your edits as vandalism, however, as was pointed out to you in a subsequent edit, one does not need to cite already obvious information. There was no need for you to blanket the article with cn tags regarding songs which appear on various albums; that information is quite obvious by just looking at the albums.

I'm sorry you got your knickers in such a twist over such an obvious mistake on your part. Your SPI case is clearly a personal attack, and I'm giving you 24 hours to withraw it before this goes to WP:AN/I. Cheers. Radiopathy •talk• 02:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Radiopathy, you can escalate to ANI if you like but I don't see the need for it. That SPI is going to be closed quickly, no doubt, and Qxuk here will have egg on their face. Qxuk, you built a ridiculously weak case, and if this is how you try to solve conflicts (by charging your opponents with having broken the rules) your career here will be shortlived. I strongly suggest you ask for it to be closed, and that you figure out why you got reverted by two editors--and that you consider seeking more, well, acceptable ways of conflict resolution. I don't think you would enjoy being accused of socking, and if you think Radiopathy shouldn't have called your edits vandalism (it's not unreasonable of you to think so), you can tell them, with words, rather than with a court summons.

Not to mention the fact that Qxuk has just tarnished my reputation for no other reason than I agreed that marking non-vandalism edits as vandalism is wrong. It's editors like them that make this place hostile and unwelcoming. Rationalobserver (talk) 17:47, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
  • I have no doubt that an apology will be forthcoming, and a promise that next time they will think twice before starting an SPI. Drmies (talk) 02:21, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
You've got it. That was a really terrible mistake, and I won't be offended by someone calling me a dumbass.Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:25, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't feel the need to call you names, but it might be nice to get something in the record here. Rationalobserver (talk) 21:34, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi. Can you explain this edit? I read the source twice, and it doesn't seem to say that any Ice Bucket Challenge videos have included the participant saying that they will be making a donation along with performing the challenge. —Granger (talk · contribs) 21:42, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

It does not say this directly, but it makes a mention of people multiple times saying they will be doing both, but not actually donating. I'm currently looking for a better source.Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:44, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I can't find it. Where in the Huffington Post article does it mention any individual participants saying that they would be doing both? Could you give me a quotation? —Granger (talk · contribs) 21:52, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
These paragraphs strongly suggest it:
"But if so many people are uploading videos pouring water over their heads, are they still donating? And wouldn't it be better to just donate, and not waste (especially in California!) precious water? As an everyday citizen, this would be my first reaction: stop wasting water and just donate! But as an NGO founder, anything and everything that motivates people to raise conversations about my cause/mission is absolutely welcome or encouraged."
"Recent data shows that more buckets of water have been poured and shared than donations made, but the challenge has still managed to raised over22 million -- and counting."
There are some other examples in the article that imply this, too. I am still searching for a better source (and working to improved other parts of the article), and have added a {{better source needed}} template for the time being.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:05, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I disagree. The first paragraph you quoted suggests that the author thinks people should donate in addition to making the video, not that they actually are. The second paragraph indicates that there are people donating—but it doesn't say that those people also made videos. I don't see anything at all that supports the statement that "Individual videos have included the participant saying that they will be making a donation along with performing the challenge." —Granger (talk · contribs) 22:11, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I've just found a different source that supports a statement similar to the one in the article. I'll add it in a moment—hopefully that will resolve the issue. —Granger (talk · contribs) 22:16, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I just found a good NY Times article, but was edit conflicted. Go ahead and add yours.Qxukhgiels (talk) 22:21, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
