"Succession" in multi-seat constituencies[edit]

I think this revert was done with a very limited consensus.

Just to fill you in, the discussion was to do with whether there is any reliable/definitive notion of preceded by/succeeded by in multi-seat constituencies. The upshot being that if it is not definitive then it discussion ought to be left the article and info boxes, etc. just state bare indisputable facts.

I think there is a wider discussion to be had before a consensus can be said to exist. What are your thoughts? --Tóraí (talk) 07:45, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Oops. I see above you were already chatting with PatGallacher. --Tóraí (talk) 07:48, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
There needs to be a wider debate on this issue. I am putting in all the predecessors / successors, this is factually accurate and better than before. Snappy (talk) 10:08, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
If that is your view, please contribute to achieving a consensus at Talk:Nick Griffin or suggest where we might continue the discussion. PatGallacher (talk) 12:06, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
I agree, there needs to be a wider debate on this issue. The discussion at Talk:Nick Griffin is insufficient. I'm not so sure where the best place for a proper discussion would be. Any suggestions? --Tóraí (talk) 19:49, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Term of MEPs starts in July[edit]

Regarding this[1], the term of the MEPs begins in July, not on the date of election. The infobox reads "Assumed office" on date x, not "Elected" on date x. In a similar vein, Barack Obama was elected president in November 2008, but he didn't become president until January 2009. --Jaakko Sivonen (talk) 15:31, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm LazyBastardGuy. I noticed that you made a comment on the page User talk: that didn't seem very civil, so it has been removed. Wikipedia needs people like you and me to collaborate, so it's one of our core principles to interact with one another in a polite and respectful manner. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. I left most of your comment but removed your personal attack. There is no need to resort to petty name-calling. LazyBastardGuy 18:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

It wasn't a personal attack, it was a vaguely humorous exhortation to stop being lazy and do some real work. Snappy (talk) 18:36, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Not to give the impression that Wikipedia has no tolerance for humor, but "vaguely humorous exhortations" do not read across a text-based medium. Name-calling is a de facto personal attack. As a friendly suggestion, I recommend refraining from attempting it again, or you could wind up at WP:ANI. LazyBastardGuy 04:45, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, humour often does not come across. There is very little humour here, perhaps for the best. I will indeed refrain from even attempting it in future. Snappy (talk) 20:41, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
