Common Tern[edit]

In this edit you change all the cases of Common Tern to common tern, but hopefully you realised that the first reference in the article was being used to demonstrate that the common term for this bird is actually "Common Tern", not some Wikipedia-driven insistence on commonality? I suggest you remove the reference, and all others that use that common nomenclature, or at least note the inconsistency on the talk page. Thanks. The Rambling Man (talk) 20:32, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps you could not the inconsistency on the article talk page yourself. William Avery (talk) 20:35, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
You're the one who made the edit in direct contradiction to the provided reliable source. It's a problem you introduced yourself. You should do something about it yourself. The Rambling Man (talk) 20:37, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
The point about following sources was brought up and weighed against other arguments by the closing administrator at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Archive_156#Bird_common_name_decapitalisation. Please don't post about the matter any further on this page. William Avery (talk) 20:46, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Bahrain[edit]

Hi. I've reverted an IP edit to Bahrain, which you have accepted. The IP claimed that "no rea [sic] sources" supported that Shia were a majority in Bahrain. A quick check (Ctrl + F and search for "majority") of the sources used in the article would have shown that many of them actually support this. Thanks. Mohamed CJ (talk) 10:13, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

That's fine. Pending changes is to police against overt vandalism, not content disputes. William Avery (talk) 16:13, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Reverts in Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant[edit]

I notice you have twice reverted an edit re Wahhabism (deleting the passage) to a version in my name. It makes it look as if that piece on Wahhabism is mine. I just wanted to make it clear that I have had no involvement in the ongoing war re Wahhabism among some editors (suspiciously with IP numbers not user names) - I have lost count of the times I have seen that passage disappear and reappear! - and I cannot understand why my name is sometimes attached to the version being reverted to (according to the "View history" pages). I have been assuming it is because I had an edit somewhere in the version being reverted to, but in view of the 1R per 24 hours rule on this article, I thought I had better clarify my position! --P123ct1 (talk) 20:14, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

it's OK. I don't think there could be any doubt about the probity of your conduct on that page. William Avery (talk) 20:40, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
That's a relief! Thanks. --P123ct1 (talk) 22:12, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

June 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Mariana crow may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • '''Mariana crow''' (''Corvus kubaryi'') ([[:-) Chamorro language|Chamorro]] name: '''''aga''''') is a [[species]] of the [[Corvidae|crow family]] from the north [[Pacific Ocean|Pacific]]. It is
  • * [[BirdLife International]] (BLI) (2008b): [http://www.birdlife.org/action/science/species/global_species_programme/whats_new.html [2008 IUCN

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 21:25, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

How might I request[edit]

…that a particular article be removed from the oversight/review currently in place? I am a semiretired professor, and have had problems at the Jack Andraka article called to my attention. I also was, very early in life, similarly, and ISEF participant and award winner. I am about ready to begin a scholarly, careful, section-by-section edit of the article, and if those edits are each time faced by long approval delays, it will make it very difficult to get this project finished, and to have Talk discussion properly focused on the overarching matters of the article. (Edits are easiest to add one section at a time, but because some edits involve moving text between sections, discussion is best after all edits actress sections are in place.) How can I have lifted, even temporarily, the reviews that lead to these delays? RSVP here, thank you. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 17:55, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

If the only edits are made by yourself as a logged in user they will automatically be approved. You could file a request for reviewer permission using the link at WP:PERM. Requests to remove protection are filed at WP:RPP. William Avery (talk) 18:32, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
