US Same sex marriage map

Thanks for the test suggestion on the stay color on the US SSM map discussion. I was getting carried away with editing the map, and I'll be better at sticking to one change at a time. Dralwik|Have a Chat 17:57, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Re: Help at Survivor: Cagayan

I saw the episode preview and I had written up as a comment, but I have to admit that I'm pausing in saving the comment. I'm suffering from some burnout with Survivor articles here. It all started with the massive reformat of the season articles that I'm not happy with and I haven't quite gotten over it yet. Being the primary author of the episode summaries with not much help is getting old. While I appreciated the anonymous IP writing up the first episode, I notice that is usually only me writing them. I notice that it was starting to affect my enjoyment of watching the show itself. I hadn't even watched the premiere until the day before the third episode aired. I know that doesn't explain my lack of wanting to save my comment very much, but I did want to at least acknowledge your messages to me. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 05:29, 13 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm glad to see that everybody has worked out a solution. It will be interesting to see how the tribal mix-up will be resolved: absorbed, full switch, or an absorb/switch up. Looking at the preview while paused makes me think it will be an absorb with a switch. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 02:45, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
@Gogo Dodo:, the switch reminds me kind of of All Stars. If you look at Brawn, they virtually stick together except for one player and they are on the opposite beach. I wonder if Brains sticking together was by choice or by luck. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 23:40, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

User warned

Just for the record I placed a disruptive editing tag on User:Prcc27's talkpage, you can comment on it if you would like seeing you have been involved but I think we can both agree that what the editor did was wrong over at LGBT rights in the United States. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:04, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

@Knowledgekid87: It was not disruptive and didn't qualify for a disruptive editing tag imo. Prcc27 (talk) 03:59, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
@Prcc27: - It was totally disruptive. You're the only one who thinks it wasn't. The consensus said not to take out the CU/DP content and you went ahead and did it anyways. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 04:03, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
They said not to take them out of the partnership map. And the partnership map remained on the LGBT rights in the United States, I didn't remove it from that page. Prcc27 (talk) 04:09, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, but you removed it from tons of other pages. You undermined the consensus. The fact that the noticed labeled one page does not negate you were disruptive at so many other pages. What you did violated Wikipedia policies on consensus and was wrong. You deserve to get flack for it. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 04:12, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
There wasn't consensus against having a separate marriage map. Once there was, the map was removed. Prcc27 (talk) 04:17, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Sigh... whole long is it going to take you to understand. You are objectively in the wrong here. When you didn't get your way, so you started removing the File:Samesex marriage in USA.svg and replacing it with your own map. You undermined the consensus by taking down the standard File:Samesex marriage in USA.svg and putting in a map that contained the revisions we all rejected. This conversation is over. Repeat your actions, and you will be reported to an admin next time. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 04:22, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

This barnstar is for your watchful eye in maintaining the US same-sex marriage map. Dralwik|Have a Chat 20:02, 10 August 2014 (UTC)


Well, Oklahoma is currently marked as banning same-sex unions similar to marriage (struck down, stayed pending appeal) on the US same-sex union map and was previously marked as banning them on the US same-sex partnership map. I might be the only one who even cares about the same-sex union map but do you know if Oklahoma banning these unions can be verified..? I can't find anything that says Oklahoma bans them!

File:112th United States Congress Senators.svg

Hey, could you make this map accessible for colorblind people..? I suggest making the purple states striped red and blue, and changing the green to yellow. Prcc twenty-seven (talk) 10:15, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

@Prcc27: No one has ever claimed this map is not colorblind accessible. If you can find a color blind person who claims that there is a problem, then I can begin to consider an action. That color scheme has been around for a long time, so I would imagine if it were not accessible, someone would have done something (but I can be convinced otherwise). The colors for the senate maps are based on the colors used in the preceding PNG maps (e.g., File:112th_United_States_Congress_Senators.png; see commons:Category:United States Senate membership maps). I will not make the purple states striped. When I first made the map, I tried and it was very painful to look at as most of the map was striped. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 16:13, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Well if the purple states are going to be solid purple, then the states with independent senators should be solid as well.. maybe use different shades for dem/indep, gop/indep states. Also, I thought using green/red was a big no-no for red-green color blindness (the most common color blindness). I would change it to yellow, especially since green is usually associated with the green party. Prcc twenty-seven (talk) 20:28, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't see green anywhere on the png map... Prcc twenty-seven (talk) 20:31, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
No, we do not need to make brand new solid colors for Dem+Ind or GOP+Ind. They are fine as is, this is a simple Senate map, we don't need more colors. Three colors for Dem, Gop, and Ind plus purple to avoid bipartisan eyestrain is enough. The green is not on the old PNG maps, because it used a different color back then. Red-Green colorblind folks can tell extreme red and extreme green apart (often/generally). If you really want me to change it yellow, I can, but it will be awhile. I have a lot to do today.

Same-sex Marriage Template

Hi Thegreyanomaly! Now someone is trying to protect the SSM template from even more editing. Would you be willing to disagree with this proposal at [Wikipedia:Requests_for_page_protection]? Difbobatl (talk) 22:11, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment on using secondary RSs at "List of scientists opposing maintream assessment of global warming"

In the most recent AFD of a particular article, you made a comment that referenced "original research" or "WP:OR". I am sending this same message to every non-IP editor who metioned either character string in that AFD. Please consider participating in a poll discussion about adding secondary RSs to the listing criteria at that talk page. Thanks for your attention. NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 20:32, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
