Disambiguation link notification for January 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Federal Democratic Union of Switzerland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Asylum (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

CP ideologies[edit]

You really need reliable sources for this, have you read WP:RS and WP:VERIFY? And Constitutionalism isn't a political ideology in the sense I think you mean it, virtually all American parties are constitutionalist. No comment on the quality of the sources used, but see Democratic Party (United States) which is at least sourced. Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 15:55, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

I have read your post and the links and I see your point with one exception: you question the reliability of my source, however my source was from the official CP website which is a very reliable source, so I don't see why you are questioning its reliability.1990'sguy (talk) 01:23, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Blogs[edit]

Please read WP:SPS - I can't see that that blog meets the exceptions suggested there - besides the issue of whether he can actually be objective about a competing political party. You were also adding 'fiscal conservatism' without a source. Dougweller (talk) 19:22, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

The 'fiscal conservatism' link was previously added by another editor. I just reinserted what was already there. 1990'sguy (talk) 23:50, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Your edits to Answers In Genesis (May 2014)[edit]

Hi there. I've reverted this edit (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Answers_in_Genesis&oldid=609332755) to the Answers In Genesis article. The wording of the current introduction reflects WP editor consensus; changes should be proposed on the Talk page. The introduction does not state that common descent is a reality (although it is, that's not relevant to the discussion); the phrase is "the scientific consensus on (i.e., the consensus concerning the topic of) the reality of common descent". Physicsandwhiskey (talk) 14:49, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the SA section in America. I reverted because such sections are for links not already in the text. See: WP:See also. – S. Rich (talk) 19:04, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Reflist columns[edit]

I notice that you've been adding a column-number parameter to the reflist template in a few articles (e.g. diff). This parameter's been deprecated in favor of {{reflist|30em}}, which allows the browser to decide on the number of columns based on the screen width. There's more detailed information in the template documentation at Template:Reflist, section "Columns". I've fixed it in the Nebraska 2012 Senate election article, but haven't done any of the others. Ammodramus (talk) 00:35, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. I was not aware of this. I will go ahead and fix the reflists for the other pages I edited. 1990'sguy (talk) 21:24, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Lieutenant Governor-elect[edit]

It's written "Lieutenant Governor-elect" as opposed to "Lieutenant Governor Elect". You can see that at this dictionary link here if you're interested. Regards, AzureCitizen (talk) 23:07, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Being a successor[edit]

To be someone's successor, you have to succeed them; that is, you must successfully take their place. If for some reason you do not, even though everyone is expecting you to do so, then you are not the person's successor and you did not succeed them. Everyone is expecting that Rauner will succeed Quinn on January 12, 2015 as planned (and I'm 99.9% confident that will happen), but until it actually happens, Quinn hasn't actually been "succeeded" by anyone. Something could happen that might prevent Rauner from taking office (in which case the Lieutenant Governor-elect would step up). We don't have a crystal ball, so waiting till it happens is the right way to go. Do you disagree? Regards, AzureCitizen (talk) 00:53, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "America: Imagine the World Without Her". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation.

WP:BRD[edit]

Please use the article talk page when your changes to an article are reverted. I don't see how your uncited claims that scientists are conspiring against Ham belongs in the article. Guettarda (talk) 23:36, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Once again, this has NOTHING to do with any "conspiracies" and I do not see why I have to cite any sources for my edit. I am simply portraying this situation accurately and with no bias, and I'm following WP:NPOV. I strongly suspect that you are letting your personal beliefs influence your editing. Your personal beliefs, no matter how accepted they are, do not belong to Wikipedia. 1990'sguy (talk) 23:42, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

No, you're inserting bias. So at the very least you should cite a source.

More importantly,, you edited a version that was the product of discussion and consensus. Yes, you are free to do so. But when someone reverted your change, the onus is on you to discuss it. NOT to edit war. So please, self-revert and build consensus for your change. Guettarda (talk) 23:52, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

And use the article talk page. Guettarda (talk) 23:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
No, I am simply portraying the situation accurately and without bias. I see absolutely no need to cite any sources because I think my edit is so obvious. You are the one inserting bias as you are violating WP:NPOV since your edits are passing on a judgment about the creationism/evolution debate. It does not matter that evolution is accepted by the majority of people, the fact that a large minority of people believe creationism is itself a reason why my edit is more accurate and fair. It is true that the creationism/evolution debate is more controversial and less one-sided than one may think. Just look at how expansive the articles Young Earth creationism and Creationism are. If the debate really were one-sided, these articles would be significantly smaller in content. I repeat once again, by my edits I am portraying this situation accurately and fairly. It appears that most other editors are against my edit so I will not revert this any longer. However, it is sad that experienced editors are violating WP:NPOV because of they are letting their personal views get in the way of their editing. Have a nice day. 1990'sguy (talk) 00:10, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I am quite familiar with the creation-evolution issue. I've read extensively on it, over quite a few years. But that's not the issue here. The problem with your edit is that it invents some sort of "scientific consensus" that "cites evidence" against Ham. It creates the misconception that scientists are busy making a case against Ham. The reality is that few of the scientists who are busy researching these topics are likely to have even heard of Ham. They aren't citing evidence against him - he's making claims that contradict many decades of work that have been argued over, revised and refined by new experiments and new data. Your edit is factually inaccurate, but it's also POV - it creates an inflated sense on Ham's importance. Guettarda (talk) 01:07, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
And, per WP:DUE, science isn't adjudicated by what the general public thinks. Guettarda (talk) 01:10, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
That's not entirely true. When science and religion mix together as with the creation/evolution issue (and this is the case with creation/evolution) public opinion plays a large role. Just look at the history of creation/evolution and see how much public and scientific opinion influenced the debate. You can see this in many other situations in history. Because religion, which is very sensitive, plays a large role, I think there should be more fairness when describing the creationism/evolution debate, but that's just my opinion. I had absolutely no intention of creating any "inflated sense on Ham's importance" or any "misconception that scientists are busy making a case against Ham" even if I did so inadvertently. Also, my edit did not "invent" any "scientific consensus". The simple fact is that there is a consensus among the scientific community that evolution is real and that creationism isn't. I was simply describing that fact. However I do see that I am in the minority on this matter, so even though I strongly disagree with the current version on Ken Ham, I will not interfere with your consensus, at least for the time being. Have a nice day. 1990'sguy (talk) 22:39, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Reince Priebus[edit]

Hi there 1990'sguy, I noticed that you'd made an edit to update the article for Reince Priebus, adding in details of his recent re-election for a third term as RNC chair, and wonder if you might be interested in helping with some additional updates for the article? In particular, I'm hoping to update the article with more information on his legal career and political roles prior to becoming RNC chair, and also adding more detail on key achievements during his tenure. I should mention, I'm working as a consultant to the RNC and due to my financial conflict of interest, I won't make any direct edits to this article. Instead, I'm looking for editors to to review and make any changes that I propose. On the Talk page, I've proposed some draft material to expand the article's discussion of his early career, would you be able to take a look? Thanks! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 19:05, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the message! Unfortunately, I will not have a lot of time in the coming weeks, so I don't think that I will be able to contribute extensively to Priebus, but I am interested in improving his article, so I will try to contribute in the time that I do have. 1990'sguy (talk) 22:22, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, appreciate it! Let me know if you have any questions as and when you get to it. 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 18:50, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Discretionary sanctions[edit]

Your edit summary here [1] is problematic - there is NO serious scientific debate on this subject - creationism as a scientific proposition (rather than a religious belief) is a pseudo-scientific position and is covered under the Arb com's Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions from the Pseudoscience case . Please stop edit warring and promoting fringe views. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 16:34, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia's default spacings around headings[edit]

I restored (note the edit summary) some spacings after you deleted them. Nothing personal. To understand how this works, try using your "edit this page" tab. Make a heading and a few letters of content. Then save it and view the code. You'll see what I mean. For older, and especially visually handicapped, editors, these spacings make it much easier to find headings and avoid misunderstandings. When you find these in the future, please just leave them alone. -- BullRangifer (talk) 17:50, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Categorization[edit]

Regarding your edit on Reince Priebus: for categorization in Wikipedia, it's not relevant whether a person is or was Orthodox. Relevant is only whether it is a defining characteristic of the article, per Wikipedia:Overcategorization#Non-defining_characteristics. After all, the purpose of categorization is that readers of Wikipedia find more information about the category subject. Marcocapelle (talk) 07:30, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Personally, I think this category on Reince Priebus should be kept. I have seen many numerous other articles with many similar categories that are seemingly non-defining, like, for example, Category:American Presbyterians for Ronald Reagan. --1990'sguy (talk) 21:15, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Your edits to Ken Ham (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) consistently fail to achieve consensus and are being reverted by multiple editors. Please stop making contentious revisions and instead seek consensus on the Talk page in advance. If you continue as you are, you may be blocked for tendentious editing. Guy (Help!) 07:04, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

I would like to inform you that I did try to achieve consensus on the talk page by explaining my posititon. I did not revise the article to what I thought was the better version after I started the discussion. I have not editied Ken Ham's article for days already. I would advise you to check the dates that I made the edits to Ham's article rather than to write to me immediately. I think I can say that in this case, you are very uninformed about my actions. Have a good day. Respectfully, 1990'sguy (talk) 16:42, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
