Windsor case vs. USA[edit]

i've noticed that your botscript reverted the edit (which was itself a revert) of the article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:United_States_v._Windsor#undue_weight_of_dissents

it is sad that otehrwise good content is being trimmed because the other POV doesnt have time to either add to the discussion ir to point out why the existing content is not conscise (seems like 10 lines of content without the quotations are not a lot to add).

Furthermore, the existing edit which your script reverted back to deleted about 85% of original citations direct from the Supreme justices' report.

You wrote you don't have time to edit or summarize, which i understand, but dont let others cut it down just because you dont have time to do anything about it — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.108.85.45 (talk) 06:03, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

There's a process that needs to be followed. Taking 8,000 characters worth of content directly from the court opinion and posting it on Wikipedia with fused in commentary of your own is the highest level of undue weight imaginable. If you are passionate about adding in the content of the dissents properly, then you need to summarize the notable points and have reliable sources attached to the commentary. I don't have a POV problem. You have a misunderstanding of what Wikipedia is, which is not a free-for-all dump for information. I would recommend coming to a an agreement, at the talk page, on the major points of the dissent that can be summarized to have readers get the complete meaning of what it says. I can try to help if I have time but I'm busy at the moment. Teammm talk

Stonewall riots[edit]

You're welcome. If you watch that article, please jump in and help when you see a problem. As you may know, the principal author is no longer active on Wikipedia, and it's a challenge keeping it up to FA grade without her and her sources. Rivertorch (talk) 17:19, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Mariah Carey[edit]

With all due respect to a fellow editor, none of us can unilaterally declare that Time Inc., the publisher of People, as well as CBS News and the New York Daily News are invalid, unreliable sources. We can't say, "People is incorrect." People would say, "We have professional journalists and fact-checkers." Same with CBS News and, though they probably don't have separate fact-checkers, the Daily News.--Tenebrae (talk) 18:29, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

You need to use the talk page to come to consensus before you change the article. Provide your sources and changes and other editors will provide theirs. It is best to provide up-to-date references because they will be given greater deference. Thank you. Teammm talk

In fact, there is a discussion, at Talk:Mariah Carey#We cannot give her age without citation. No consensus was reached on either date, so we can't put our own preference in. And the People cite is up-to-date, so I ask that we continue this debate in good faith and not make misleading suggestions.--Tenebrae (talk) 19:17, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
That discussion includes another editor noting that per Parade, another highly reliable source, as recently as 2011 gave 1969. http://www.parade.com/celebrity/hollywood-wire/2011/03/28/mariah-carey-early-contractions.html. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:19, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
Believe me, I'm well aware of what we can and cannot do. I've listed a number of the most reliable sources on the talk page and look forward to your review of the content. I agree your efforts are in good faith, but the content is just not accurate given the weight of the sources to the contrary. Teammm talk

Hi. If it's no bother, could you weight in on this discussion about what I am asserting is a non-neutral revision by another editor? An outside opinion would be greatly appreciated. These POV disputes are pretty contagious with music articles LOL. Dan56 (talk) 21:06, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Andrew Sullivan[edit]

Thanks for your request. I have begun a discussion on the talk page as you asked. I would note that the previous discussion suggested that led to the current formulation specifically said "I think we might be onto something here. If there aren't any complaints in the next day or so, I think we should do this." My observations disagreeing with that were posted in that thread within ten hours, so I don't really think that the "consensus" had been as fully achieved as you suggested. That said, I believe we can find a good way forward, one more in line with SPS and RS policy. Capitalismojo (talk) 23:01, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

a question, can this be done?[edit]

I added a cover song to Chamuel's discography called "when the world was young". Can I add the code below to this page [3], the song's page ? There has to be value (worthy of note) in renewing the composer's work after 35 years. The code makes a new section for "contemporary recordings".

code: ==Contemporary recordings==

Bammesk (talk) 18:29, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

I would say no because it doesn't meet WP:MUSIC requirements. I would classify the cover as trivial because it hasn't received sufficient discussion from reliable secondary sources or gained any notoriety at all. If you want to include that in her biography, however, it may be usable. Remember, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. Teammm talk

for review[edit]

Please review. Currently the word Chamuel is directed per the following :

  • Chamuel - is a redirect page as per #REDIRECT [ [ Camael ] ]
  • Camael - is an article, its lead states that Camael is also known as Kamuel, Chamuel, Camiel, Camniel
  • Seven Archangels - is an article, in its lead section there is a hyperlink to Chamuel as per [ [ Chamuel ] ]
  • The “Seven Archangels” article is the only one that hyperlinks to Chamuel. Other than that there are no mentions of Chamuel on any pages.
  • Of course there are several articles that mention Camael and hyperlink directly to the Camael article.

I do not see why Chamuel should redirect to Camael. Why should it not redirect to Michelle Chamuel?
Another less relevant consideration is that the Camael article gets 90 hits a day, versus Michelle Chamuel article with 300 hits a day.
I appreciate your input. Bammesk (talk) 04:54, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Is this a reasonable solution:

  • create a page called "Chamuel (angel)" that redirects to Camael
  • create a page called "Chamuel (singer)" that redirects to Michelle Chamuel
  • edit the current page of "Chamuel" so that it becomes a disambiguation page listing the above 2 choices.
  • modify articles that redirect to "Chamuel" (such as the Seven Archangels article) so that they redirect to "Chamuel (angel)" page.

Mariah Carey[edit]

Hi, Teammm. As we've been discussing at Talk:Mariah Carey, I've just done a first pass on that talk page of a Joan Crawford-stye footnote about Carey's birth date. Hope you have a chance to see it and comment. --Tenebrae (talk) 23:39, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

for review[edit]

On this page [4], I request a change from existing/old reference [5] to new reference [6]. Advocate for old reference posted here [7], [8] and [9]. Review shows old reference has two mistakes and a COI. "attended congregation for at least several years" is incorrect per [10]. Advocate states attendance is based on two bulletins, can very well be two attendances three years apart. "In Egypt, I was told…" is incorrect, per [11] the author had not been in Egypt as of June 4. Also advocate states the source is not anyone in Egypt. Lastly, advocate admits he has a COI, funding benefit to a non-profit. Given old reference discusses personal information, has mistakes and COI, and is used on a BLP, I request that it be replaced with the new reference. I appreciate your input.Bammesk (talk) 02:40, 20 September 2013 (UTC)

Hawaii SSM[edit]

Yep, you were right though. When I read how it said that Hawaii is already included in those states that "issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples", it needed to be corrected. Separate sentences cleared that up. Teammm talk

LGBT rights in Russia[edit]

Hello. I am struggling to understand why you reverted the article to an earlier version. Vis-à-vis #Bans on "homosexual propaganda", most of the sources you revert back to (e.g. [12]) are from June 2013, and so cannot possibly support the article's claim that the law had been passed on 30 July. Your revert also removed the {{Cite Russian law}} sources I had added earlier. Again, why do this? Thank-you. It Is Me Here t / c 23:13, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for bringing this to my attention. This is definitely an error on my part. My intention was only to change the title of a particular section back to what it was. Apparently, I was rushing and pressed the wrong button and didn't notice. Sorry! I'll fix what I unintentionally reverted. Teammm talk

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Teammm. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history.
