Quincy[edit]

I am confused to why you are removing the information about his parents when it is stated in other sources listed in the article. Your edits do not make sense what exactly are you disputing?Wikshepeda (talk) 07:33, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Also since when does date of birth need citations to be listed? if that was the case every single biography would have a citation? Wikshepeda (talk)

I looked at every other source in the article and not one of them shows his DOB, which is what I removed and what I am disputing, because not a single reliable source has been given that verifies that information. A date of birth has always needed a citation, and yes, every single biography does require a such a citation. Any fact that you present on Wikipedia needs a reliable source verifying it, especially on biographies of living persons. If there's no reliable source showing the date of birth, Wikipedia cannot list a date of birth. Sites like famousbirthdays are not reliable sources, neither is IMDB for biographical information such as this. - Aoidh (talk) 08:04, 16 April 2015 (UTC)


That is not true, because tf that's the case then you should go and remove the information listed on Tom Cruises and Oprah Winfrey page as well as the millions of others like who do not have citations listed for date of birth because it is not need. Also on Wikipedia if information is missing you add a [citation needed] tag not remove it entirely. Birthdays do not need to be citated before it can be listed! So get familiar with Wikipedia policies and stop before disrupting a page with false claims. Wikshepeda (talk)

I am not engaged in an edit war. I am fixing the sources and working on it which you keep on interrupting. Wikshepeda (talk) 08:21, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Not quite, because this is one of the first references in the Oprah Winfrey article: "Oprah Gail Winfrey was born on January 29 1954". That DOB is sourced, otherwise it would be removed. You must add a reliable source for biographical information, this is not optional. If you disagree, you are welcome to cite the Wikipedia policy you're referring to, but WP:V and WP:BLP say otherwise: "We must get the article right. Be very firm about the use of high-quality sources. All quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be explicitly attributed to a reliable, published source, which is usually done with an inline citation. Contentious material about living persons (or, in some cases, recently deceased) that is unsourced or poorly sourced – whether the material is negative, positive, neutral, or just questionable – should be removed immediately and without waiting for discussion." You have to add a reliable source before you can add the DOB. If you continue to ignore this, you will be blocked from editing to prevent further disruption to the article. - Aoidh (talk) 08:23, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
To further clarify, citing Wikipedia policy: "With identity theft a serious ongoing concern, people increasingly regard their full names and dates of birth as private. Wikipedia includes full names and dates of birth that have been widely published by reliable sources, or by sources linked to the subject such that it may reasonably be inferred that the subject does not object." The idea that the DOB doesn't need a reliable source is directly and unambiguously contradicted by Wikipedia policy. It must have a reliable source. - Aoidh (talk) 08:30, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

on life force - meditation page[edit]

Hello. May I ask why did you revert the change I made to the meditation article ? There is no such thing as a life force, qi, ki or whatever. That's just a claim by eastern philosophies/religions. The way the sentence is phrased, makes it appear as if it were a mere fact, which it isn't.

"The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion,[3] love, patience, generosity and forgiveness"

what if that was

"The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation superpowers, x-ray vision and develop compassion,[3] love, patience, generosity and forgiveness".

Among actual existing things - like patience, love and generosity, they have thrown in between something non-existent (scientifically proven).

That will make an end user think that life force is real.

As I explained in my edit summary, adding alleged there doesn't make sense. It says "designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force and develop compassion". The sentence doesn't claim that these things occur as a result, or that the Qi is real, only that it's designed to build Qi. Being designed to do something, and actually doing the thing, are vastly different. Adding alleged there doesn't help the sentence and doesn't correct anything, because the sentence is accurate and based on fact, and would only confuse someone who doesn't read the actual sentence. - Aoidh (talk) 12:51, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

College Football Hall of Fame on Atlanta page[edit]

Aoidh

I see you removed the update that I posted on https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Atlanta due to the promotional tone. Can you assist me on providing this information in an acceptable format. The College Football hall of Fame is a great new Attraction in the Atlanta area that I feel tourist would love if they were aware of it. It just opened in late 2014 and is in the downtown area right next to the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca Cola, Centennial Park and the CNN Center. You can find out about them at www.cfbhall.com.

I understand that Wikipedia is a resource for factual information and wish to contribute some value to the community. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mrmarketology (talkcontribs) 03:26, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
