Correspondence between Wikileaks and Donald Trump Jr.[edit]

Why was the section about the correspondence between Wikileaks & Donald Jr. removed from this article? It was clearly sourced to the Atlantic article and is based on documents turned over by Trump Jr. in the Russian investigation. It is clearly newsworthy and substantiated. It shouldn't be removed simply because it portrays Wikileaks in an unflattering light. The Atlantic is a reliable source and it is incorrect to delete this information which is very challenging to the image of Wikileaks as an impartial source of information. 2601:1C0:6D02:27C0:4DC:F358:5971:B3AE (talk) 00:53, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

The content is a sub-section under the sub-section "Allegations of anti-Clinton and pro-Trump bias". Snooganssnoogans (talk) 00:56, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
On March 12, 2018, I changed the subsection heading to Correspondence between WikiLeaks and Donald Trump Jr. and made an edit to the first sentence that bears further explanation. I removed "Julian Assange" because the cited source does not specify him as having sent these messages, reporting only that the WikiLeaks Twitter account did so. This distinction is important. As Assange explained on his own Twitter account, during the period when the messages were sent he had no Internet access, and the @WikiLeaks account "is run by a rotating staff." It is therefore likely that his staff, not Assange personally, sent these messages. And in any case, our cited source does not claim that he did so. KalHolmann (talk) 06:42, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Russian coverage[edit]

@Karl.i.biased: You need to use this talk page to discuss the changes you want, why, and how they can best be sourced. At this point you are edit warring, as you've been more than adequately warned about. Follow WP:BRD: Boldly make edits, if reverted, stop to discuss. Please also note WP:EW: "but my edits were right, so it wasn't edit warring" is no defense. Pinging reverting editors as well, so hopefully a discussion can be fostered: @Snooganssnoogans and Dr.K. -- ferret (talk) 19:47, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

@Ferret: I reverted this user because he is edit-warring through edit-summaries and I find this behaviour to be disruptive. Unfortunately, as my subsequent discussion on his talkpage shows, this user is not very keen on discussing his edits on the article talkpage. As far as the contents of his/her edits, I think that they are blatant synthesis and OR and until this user understands these concepts, the discussion is not going to go far. However, if you disagree with my assessment, please feel free to restore his edits. Dr. K. 20:14, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
@Dr.K.: Simply trying to steer things in the right direction so that a block does not become necessary. If Karl can come here and a discussion occurs, an edit might result that everyone is happy with. If not, sufficient warnings have been issued. -- ferret (talk) 20:21, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
I understand. But I am a minority shareholder in this. My primary objective was to stop the flippant edit-warring by Karl discussing through edit-summaries. Obviously, this attempt failed. I'm not any more optimistic as to the chances of Karl understanding what OR and SYNTH are either. I wouldn't even bet he'll be coming here to discuss any time soon.

Nothing to do with the Wikimedia Foundation[edit]

Should it not be spelt out clearly somewhere in the first three paragraphs that Wikileaks is nothing to do with the WikiMedia Foundation? Vorbee (talk) 18:02, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 31 January 2018[edit]

An update is needed to correct a statement in the "Leaks" section, "2011-2015". It refers to Francois Hollande as the current President of France. "...including but not limited to the current President Francois Hollande and his predecessors Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac." it should read "including but not limited to former President Francois Hollande and his predecessors Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac." (talk) 12:15, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

 Done, but not as asked As Hollande was, in fact, the President at the time. However, I did change it to say "...including but not limited to then current President Francois Hollande...", so I hope this satisfies your request. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 13:28, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Subsection name[edit]

I reversed a reversion of a subsection name here (and altered the name further). I don't like how long the name was before; it messed up the TOC, making it wider than it needed to be. Plus the name was redundant with the section name. I further adjusted it to match the naming used in the subsection above it. I agree that section names should be descriptive, but I think this was too descriptive. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 12:56, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
