PEAR Lab[edit]

Hi: When you get a chance, could you help follow up on the notes at Talk:Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab? I absolutely agree that this stuff ain't science, but is rather more of an academic/cultural curiosity. I'd like to get the background/funding into the same tone/style as many of the other parapsychology entries, like Perrott-Warrick Fund for example. Per yr comment, it doesn't have to be in the lede of course. We should also try to deal with the WP:BLP and WP:SCAREQUOTES item, in the absence of evidence of actual malicious intent. Tnx! jxm (talk) 16:33, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Just checking back with you on this item. I was thinking of reinserting some of the background/funding material into the body instead of the lede. As you pointed out, it's not quite appropriate there. Thoughts? jxm (talk) 18:37, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

india-forums's credibility[edit]

You are still sure that it is an unreliable citation? I just tagged at one place[1]. As you were supporting the blacklisting of this website, like 2 years ago. I wanted to ask again. Bladesmulti (talk) 11:41, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

@Bladesmulti: i still see nothing at http://www.india-forums dot com/about_us.asp which indicates they place any value on fact checking and editorial oversight. and the site is still on the black list. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 12:24, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "GamerGate (controversy)". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 21 October 2014.

Edit War[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Humsafar. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Turgan Talk 15:59, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Improving Corona del Mar High[edit]

I agree that these pop culture references now would fit under heading "Campus Culture," but the fit seems odd juxtaposed with these controversies. Other ideas? --Dalton D. Hird 16:53, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Undid revision?[edit]

Hello! I had recently added to the page Derp. I understand that the article has been the home of much past vandalism, yet my contribution was not at all vandalism in any form. I cited my addition to the page, and the citation was reasonable. Was this a mistake or something? If I need to add another citation for more evidence, I can do so (the HCAM site also proves my addition as true). If the revert was automatic or something similar, I am not mad at all. I am just confused! Please respond to me as soon as possible. Thank you for your time! Squiddaddy (talk) 22:37, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) Frankly, I don't think Derp Snootsly is notable enough, but I'd be interested to see what TRPOD thinks. -Roxy the dog™ (resonate) 23:36, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
I have found a legitimate blue-link landing page that I can link Derp Snootsly to (the section of the Hopkinton, Massachusetts page on "The Author Side" and "Derp and Merp"). I could not find a separate article dedicated to the character, but I was not surprised (not many television shows or book series do have separate articles for each character). I hope this will do, because I learned of the phrase "Derp" from reading "Derp and Merp." That is why I even added the character in the first place! If you have any questions, just respond on my talk page. Thanks so much, Squiddaddy (talk) 19:32, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
@Squiddaddy: you have to go four levels deep before there is anything close to "legitimate" - from the city, to its non notable cable channel to a blurb on channel to a character on the blurb- that is not a "legitimate" landing place. By that logic my runaway snot of a dog would be able to have a redirect because you can go from the city to the city services to the dog catcher who has become very familiar with my dog. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 01:33, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Revert at[edit]

Can you please explain your revert at Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, or undo your revert? Tamravidhir explicitly requested my help, and that edit was to be the first of a set of copyedits. Curly Turkey ⚞¡gobble!⚟ 00:06, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Reliable source or not? [2] --NeilN talk to me 03:35, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

User:NeilN If he had actually said that, it would've been followed by other reliable sources like Times, NDTV, etc. I don't think that he has actually said it, if you are going to find another secondary source for this information, there are a few blogspot blogs and that's it. Bladesmulti (talk) 04:04, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Sean Lien[edit]

Sorry not to respond more clearly! No non-Chi-wiki source says Sean Lien born in Taiwan. The article cited by other editor about accusation that Sean born in northern not southern Taiwan. Confusion all based on Chi-wiki. Lien doesn't deny birth in US. Dispute seems to be about where he "grew up." I guess he wants to seem more Taiwanese and emphasize connection to Taipei (north). But not like Obama. Current president not born in Taiwan; everyone knows. Not a law problem here. Just about how people feel. Concerns a fact. So easy to sort out. Relevant thing is that all published reports, except Chin-wiki, say born in US. His dad was a student at the time. So not a big issue. His campaign info talks about where he "grew up." Thanks!Taiwansov (talk) 03:59, 16 October 2014 (UTC)


Hi. There are many test edits being done on the article Aagadu. Many IPs and users are unable to accept the film's failure which may affect the article in terms of neutrality. For maintaining it, i want to remove these lines from the top. They are :

  • IB Times stated that the film received "decent" reviews.[1]
  • The film became the highest weekend opening Indian film in the U.S. box office.[2]

The first one would be placed in the Critical Reception while the second one would be retained in the Overseas Box office. Please suggest me what to do in this case whether i can do it or no with reasons. Thank you. Pavanjandhyala (talk) 04:48, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

my bad on gg talk page revert[edit]

My bad on revert. Had thought I had clicked elsewhere in watchlist on small screen device, did not see that it took a click as a rollback option. Was purely unintentional. --MASEM (t) 14:25, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

That is my final argument[edit]

I just object to having what I wrote in a discussion shut down.

Incidentally, your pen name makes you seem sadistic, given that you will be in conflict with people. Because of that pen name, it is hard to discern whether you may be a person with some integrity or just someone who delights in destroying. But I will allow that you may be sadistic.--Reidme (talk) 17:17, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

I see that you dont ascribe to WP:AGF. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 17:25, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

You tagged several songs with WP:CSD#A9. Unless the articles are untrue, in which case you need a different tag, they are not eligible for A9 because the artist or artists have articles on Wikipedia. Please be more careful using this tag. Thanks.--Bbb23 (talk) 23:51, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Gekkos of Zimbabwe DrC.Humphreys (talk) 10:36, 21 October 2014 (UTC) Thank you for your invaluable Remarks on article. I have two questions 1. How you I retrieve the article Userfied by Alexf ? 2. If I were to title my article Endemic Geckos of Zimbabwe would it be more acceptable ? As vangenie says Geckos dont recognise human borders by they do recognise geography and exclusive habitats i.e. endemicity....the word endemic in embedded in the text several times DrC.Humphreys (talk) 10:36, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Slice and dice[edit]

Hey TRPoD - do you have any interest in taking your finely honed machete to clean this up? I've certainly seen worse, but it checks all the boxes: unsourced personal info, crappy sources, and ridiculous puffery (DYK she has "previously expressed a desire to win the Palme d'Or"?) I double dog dare you. --Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 21:01, 21 October 2014 (UTC)


Gekkos of ZimbabweAfroedura transvaalica Dear RedPenofDoom Thank you for your comments. I have tried to improve these articles (above) as you all of wikipedia its a work in is my ability to understand the wiki protocols and formatting language. I can see the points made about zimbabwe (that does not have a great deal of endemicity does though have endemic geckos) my article the species are listed in red.....the articles about the gecko genera also have the same species listed in red i.e. they are stubs or starters.....i intend to develop these stubs....(two have turned blue as I added to them) ...not because I am interested in those huge genera but more because I am interested in Zimbabwe's herpetofauna....i feel sure that others will see this as a useful contribution ...the british library and wikipedia are full of 'snails of fiji' or 'birds of east anglia' types of research.... does they need editing, collating into larger topics or can they stand on their own censured. The original administrator who deleted this suggested contacting Wikiproject Amphibians and Reptiles which I have done ...... as yet they havent replied....for some guidance. Thank you for your contribution Clive DrC.Humphreys (talk) 23:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Gilbert Ling Association Induction Hypothesis[edit]

Overall Comments[edit]

Within a period of 15 minutes you swing your scythe and remove 1/3rd of the article with no pre-discussion in the talk page and not justifiable comments (See below). I believe this is breaking the three revert rule. There was no discussion beforehand of these major edits contrary to WP:Edititing Policy Be_cautious_with_major_changes:_discuss

You then go on to edit other articles and coming back to the AIH article and perhaps speed read for about 5 minutes decide that the whole theory is a wingnut theory and not notable saying that in 50 years the only one who has written about this is Ling.

Notability requires that third party reliable sources have discussed the topic of the article. The article contained no evidence that third parties had discussed the subject. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 10:13, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
