Richter scale[edit]

I removed the unsourced 3.0 on the Richter scale line. The first thing I heard a few hours later in in Pioneer Square was "dude, you know the news said it got to 2.4". So I have heard it in passing and it has been blogged about. If anyone finds a source or hears it on the news please add it! We can use cite episode if it is on local news I think.Cptnono (talk)

12s[edit]

I have updated the article to mention that the Seahawks organization is now referring to their fans as "12s" rather than the "12th Man". I also have included a citation from Seahawks.com that uses that fan description. I included mention that the fans were originally referred to as the "12th Man". Recognizing that both terms are currently commonly being used, I don't believe that making reference to the "12s" moniker is in any way a violation of WP:COMMONNAME:: — Preceding unsigned comment added by Macae (talkcontribs) 15:57, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

The existing citation(s) say "12th man." And 12th Man is the WP:COMMONNAME per coverage (including MEDIA) as resolved at Seattle Seahawks. UW Dawgs (talk) 16:11, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
I have left reference to the fans originally being referred to as the "12th Man". Your citation that you are using to support the current reference to the "12th Man" being used is six years old. That begs the question as to whether that citation is therefore "current". But rather than argue that point, I included reference to the fans being called the "12th Man" originally and also mentioned that the Seahawks organization now refers to the fans as the "12s". And I support that statement with a citation. I believe that both "12th Man" and "12s" probably fits within WP:COMMONNAME. Which makes it reasonable to include both mentions within the article as I have done. Macae (talk) 21:40, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
The statement as written is about the 2003 event, hence the language used and cited is contemporaneous. Your edit removes the well-cited text and focusses on 2016 for unknown reasons. UW Dawgs (talk) 22:35, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
It isn't clear that the statement is referring only to an event from 13 years ago. If you wish to make such a clarifying edit, we can then also include the fact that the Seahawks currently refer to their fans as the "12s" as supported by the provided citation. Does that work for you? Do you wish to make the change?Macae (talk) 19:57, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
What is the defect in the current consensus statement and/or citation in your view? UW Dawgs (talk) 15:53, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
I don't think that there is a defect in the current statements. The Seahawks ARE currently referring to their fans as the "12s" as supported by the citation. Directly from the official source that I cited - "At every home game just before kickoff, the flag is raised in honor of the 12s." I have also kept/included the statement that the fans were originally referred to as the "12th Man" as supported by the previously supplied citations. I'm not certain as to why you are so opposed to including a mention of the "12s" within this article. If you think that there is a better way to state the previous usage of the "12th Man" and the current official usage of the "12s", I certainly would appreciate the attempt to propose a new statement. As previously stated, I am more than happy to have you suggest a compromise edit that you feel is more accurate. But please do not continue to arbitrarily remove the citation supported mention of the "12s".Macae (talk) 17:59, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm not contesting your new content, per se. I'm contesting your removal of existing citations and changes to well-supported language. You're attempting two different edits, 2003 vs 2016. UW Dawgs (talk) 18:06, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
As stated previously, if you think that there is a better way to make the edits, than I welcome the assistance. But so far, you have simply deleted the references to the 12s everytime that I have added them. Macae (talk) 18:51, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Your edits haven't only added new content, you're choosing to remove existing content and citations. Please separate the two. UW Dawgs (talk) 18:54, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
As you continue to remove both content and associated citations without discussion (Wikipedia:Disruptive editing), when adding new content and associated citations, in good faith I have attempted to add your new desired "12s" content on your behalf. UW Dawgs (talk) 19:07, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Didn't realize that your concern was with the initial statement rather than inclusion of the new information. I have made one minor addition to the original statement clarifying that the fans were what was being referred to as the 12th Man during the time that the citation was written. Hopefully this compromise edits works for you?Macae (talk) 19:10, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Stadium creation / public vote[edit]

There are (only) two sentences on the public vote. The second of which was recently deleted (and now re-added):

This was a controversial out-of-cycle election financed privately by the football franchise owner.

The citation could be improved, but removing editor did not include an edit summary. So their issue is unclear.UW Dawgs (talk) 16:26, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

There are only 2 sentences if you are too high on crack to read the section titled "Funding", stupid.Cptnono (talk) 07:20, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
