Resurrection of Southern California Task Force[edit]

After moving from Los Angeles County to Kern County to San Luis Obispo County, I am finally realizing that there is life in California outside of L.A. and San Francisco, where I lived and grew up. Oh, I have also lived in San Diego, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Yolo and Sacramento counties, and I earned my undergraduate degree in Riverside County. I am trying to breathe life into the Southern California Task Force, and I hope you will join me. Could you visit our list of participants at the other end of this link and update your description of what you are interested in doing for us, assuming that you still want to be in the mix, that is.

In recompense, I will buy you a drink during the Wikipedia Welcome Week I am planning for Morro Bay on the Central Coast in July. Yours sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 18:45, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Italian American Article[edit]

I am somewhat perplexed concerning the flag you raised in the Culture section of the Italian American article. This quite long section already has 40 references. It would be helpful if you used "reference needed" flags as appropriate in this section, or let me know on my Talk page what you consider the general shortcomings to be. Philantonia (talk) 14:20, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

There are whole paragraphs and sentences lacking reliable source references, thus the tag. Thus IMHO it was an appropriate use of the tag. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that anyone can edit, therefore seeing an issue but not having the time at that moment to fix the issue that I saw, I left a tag.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 17:51, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
I am still quite baffled that someone who has never contributed to the article can make a snap judgment that a major section is "lacking in reliable source references" (when, in fact, there are 40 references incorporated). I think it is incumbent upon you to either be more precise with one or more "citation needed' flags, or remove your tag. Yes, its true anyone can edit an article, but the highest standards of Wikipedia editing should always prevail. Philantonia (talk) 20:42, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Blah, blah, blah. Stop pestering me.
I saw sentences and whole paragraphs missing references. If Philantonia feels that those not normally editing the article shouldn't be noting issues, there is page protection which could be applied for. I don't understand the mountain created out of this mole hill. Either improve the section and remove the tag. Or remove the tag and leave those mulititude of sentences and paragraph subject to possible challenge. I don't care, enough about the subject to continue this convo.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 21:02, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Entries like: "Italian American culture, and transplanted Italian culture, have influenced American culture in a variety of ways, such as: Italian restaurants, foods, coffees and desserts; wine production (in California and elsewhere in the U.S.) and consumption; popular music, starting in the 1940s and 1950s, and continuing into the present; operatic, classical and instrumental music; fashion and design; "Capra-esque" movies (in the style of Frank Capra); Italianate architecture, in homes, churches, and public buildings; Montessori schools; Christmas crèches; fireworks displays; bocce; Columbus Day parades; and the commemoration of Columbus, as reflected in numerous monuments, city names, names of institutions and the poetic name, "Columbia", for the United States itself." are based on a generally recognized part of American culture, and do not require documented proof (however, I will where possible make links to other Wikipedia articles). In other cases, the statement is only an extension of what has been discussed previously in the article. Finally, your response to a legitimately (and politely posed concern on my part) is inconsistent with the highest standard of Wikipedia protocol Philantonia (talk) 22:27, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
LoL, unexplained re-addition of non-verified non-sourced content is high standards. LoL. Stop trolling me.
If that was an IP editing I would consider that vandalism. LoL.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 22:40, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Half Million Award[edit]

Thank you for bringing such an important article up to snuff. Bobnorwal (talk) 12:53, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Uber regulation summary: help needed[edit]

Hi RightCowLeftCoast, I'm reaching out to each of the editors who commented on the "Request for Comment" at Talk:Uber (company) re: the Uber article's section on regulation and legal issues. As you might remember, editors were overwhelmingly in favor of splitting off that information into a new article, then summarizing in the Uber article. While the first part happened, there has been no movement on the summarizing and Regulatory opposition continues to grow and grow. To help kickstart that process, I've put forward a draft for everyone to take a look at that aims to cover the key details in a summary form: Summarizing Regulatory opposition

My conflict of interest means that it's best for me not to be bold and move this into the article myself, but I hope that it can at least be a starting point for other editors to work from. Would you mind coming back to the page to have a look? Craig at Uber (talk) 19:52, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Tdeas for a Nomination[edit]

While "Editor named after a city"'s editing count has been low recently, he has been a fair-minded and quality editor for many years. With 80% article-space editing among his 6000 edits, his ability to edit fairly in the challenging arena of Real World Global politics is commendable. His main interest was the article History of Israel. He edited with an understanding of mutual editorial recognition and the collaboration of equals. He was willing to discuss contentious material which was constantly at issue. His own statement, "(my) edits are made in good faith and are not out of a desire to sell political points." is a clear indication of his awareness that WP is a place for mutual resolution.

This is just a rough draft, an example. Make changes if you like. loooking froward to your nomination. . Buster Seven Talk 17:58, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

You are being contacted because of your participation in the proposal to create a style noticeboard. An alternate solution, the full or partial endorsement of the style Q&A currently performed at WT:MoS, is now under discussion at the Village Pump. Darkfrog24 (talk) 21:25, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
