Edit warring at Steve Darcis[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Steve Darcis shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. - Kingpin13 (talk) 17:31, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

That is pathetic! I am enforcing policies and you give me a warning?! Really pathetic! Afterwriting (talk) 17:33, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
You should know better than to edit war over something like this. The user's edits are not vandalism, and this is clearly a content dispute. There is nothing blatantly wrong with the edit the user is making (although it does appear to be a case of WP:RECENT - an essay) and they do not appear to be being purposefully disruptive. Discuss the issue on the talk page, rather than via edit summaries in an edit war. - Kingpin13 (talk) 17:39, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
You are being totally ridiculous and inexcusable. Afterwriting (talk) 17:43, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) The warning from Kingpin13 is valid and should be heeded. Mlpearc (powwow) 17:48, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
It is not valid at all. It is inexcusable and pathetic. Afterwriting (talk) 17:52, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict)'s edits were not vandalism, and you were wrong to edit war over them and describe them as such. The article seems to have stabilised now, as he has managed to reach a compromise on the wording with other editors. If you have a problem with any particular action I have taken, you are welcome to raise that, as long as you do so civilly and explain clearly your reasoning. Simply complaining about receiving a warning for edit warring when that is exactly what you are doing, is not going to cut it. - Kingpin13 (talk) 17:52, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
Since I did not, in fact, describe his edits as vandalism this only highlights just how ridiculous you have been. Afterwriting (talk) 17:59, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
"please don't leave warnings on the talk pages of responsible editors such as myself for reverting vandalism" (emphasis added) - Kingpin13 (talk) 18:05, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
That was VANDALISM by OTHER EDITORS which I reverted. Anything more ridiculous and pathetic you want to contribute? Afterwriting (talk) 18:07, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Steve Darcis[edit]

Please look at who you're talking to. I had no clue what the fuck you were saying until I looked at the history.

Darcis is not "best known" for defeating Nadal. Maybe that's what you know him best for, but he's well-known in his home country. Defeating Nadal is significant, yes, and I agree that it belongs in the leader. But saying that he is "best known" for upsetting Nadal in a first round is just flat out wrong.

And you, my friend, are completely confused as the edits you are complaining about were NOT made by me. Afterwriting (talk) 17:42, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Graham Leonard[edit]

Hello.. I noticed you made a correction in this edit. I'm sorry I'm not a native English speaker, I just want to make sure that, based on the source, valid ordination refers to the bishop not the church. I think your recent edit means that all bishop ordained under Old Catholic Church considered as valid, which is incorrect. This is a case by case basis, not all bishop of Old Catholic Church considered by RC as validly ordained. I look forward to hear your thoughts. Regards, Ign christian (talk) 17:15, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. It certainly has been the case, at least until they began ordaining women, that the ordinations of the Union of Utrecht churches have been recognised as valid by the RCC. I am not aware of any of their ordinations until recent times only being recognised on a case by case basis. So I believe my edit is essentially correct. I also cannot see any difference regarding this matter between my edit and yours in which you asserted that their ordinations are valid. The problem with this is that we don't make assertions in articles about whether anyone's ordinations are valid or not ~ only about whether and by who they are recognised as valid or not. I hope this clarifies matters. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 17:35, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your last edit, now it has greater clarity. I agree with you, my problem is I can't construct a good phrasing as you did. :-) Thanks again, Ign christian (talk) 10:37, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
No worries. Glad we could discuss this and improve things without any conflict. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 00:48, 26 September 2015 (UTC)


I responded to your revert on my talk page Ratel (talk) 11:08, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Singular or plural[edit]

Given that the editor concerned has made a very large number of edits to articles about bands with plural names, can I suggest that you set out your views (which which I fully agree) on some central discussion page, so that this issue can be laid to rest once and for all, rather than it having to be addressed by individual editors reverting changes on a piecemeal basis? Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:36, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Did you have a discussion page in mind? Afterwriting (talk) 12:38, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I suppose that, given we have MOS:PLURALS, the discussion should be at WT:MOS. I see another editor is now reverting some of the changes, but reinstating some that other editors have changed back! It's very confusing... Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:40, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you! Ghmyrtle (talk) 12:47, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Catholic Church[edit]

I never said I was "honourable." That is the English spelling. I said "honorable," which is the American spelling. And I did discuss the change I was making on the article's talk page. If you would read the article's talk page you will see the entire sad history of this. One editor deleted that change and asked for a source. I found a source and retyped my change. The second editor simply deleted it. Now you have come in with yet some new reason justifying deleting my change. And I answered it.

"My highly deplorable incivility" is in reaction to having my contribution to Wikipedia being summarily deleted twice, with the goalposts moved three times. Most normal people would agree that is enough to be considered insufferable treatment. Ivain (talk) 02:51, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

This applies to your comments. Afterwriting (talk) 03:04, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

So you think that your patronising and gratuitous pomposity is perfectly okay then? Calling another editor a "barbarian" is probably the worst example of incivility I have had the misfortune to see on Wikipedia. And yet you have the nerve to extol yourself as being "honourable" (or whatever spelling you prefer) and try to shame others. The word "hypocrisy" does not even begin to describe your pathetic behaviour. Afterwriting (talk) 06:34, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Diana and Landmines: Using wikipedia to self promote a business[edit]

An encyclopedic article should avoid using adjectives as used in the sentence "the world's oldest and largest" that is quoted from that organization's press release. It is also factually inaccurate, as there are older mine clearance organizations (in the US and South Africa, for example) and there are larger ones in operation today. This is also irrelevant to the article about Princess Diana, and does not appear next to names of other organizations she had worked with, which may also call themselves largest, oldest or best. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2F0E:2:A800:A193:24FD:E5AA:4E22 (talk) 13:14, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Including such information from a press release is not a straight forward case of "using Wikipedia to self promote a business". That is a ludicrous comment. Whether the information is accurate is an entirely separate issue. In any case, I did not add the information. I also wonder why this issue is so important to you. I suspect that your motive in removing the information is not so much accuracy as something else. Afterwriting (talk) 20:45, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

London based universities[edit]

Hi, first of all compliments for your great work in improving style of Wiki articles. I have learnt a lot from your edits. Can you please quickly go through the lead paragraphs of these articles: Imperial College London, London School of Economics, University College London, Golden triangle (universities) (and King's College London as you already do), and improve style of their leads and possibly establish some ground rules regarding how we write these leads in a neutral manner. Maybe reviewing University of Oxford and University of Cambridge in this process will also be a good idea. I believe the current University College London lead is a good template for others universities to follow. Thanks. LondonMan (talk) 22:32, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll have a look asap. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 23:40, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Peter Foster[edit]

Thanks for your improvements to the Foster page. Would you mind holding off on corrections for a day maybe? I'm in the middle of major edits to some sections, and you may have made corrections to text that is being changed. I'm trying to get it out of the way while I have time. Please feel free to return and make corrections, though. Cheers. Pallas Blade (talk) 02:55, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Okay. No worries. Afterwriting (talk) 07:11, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Hello again, I might need another day or two. The article needs some serious work, fixing omissions and trimming the fat. Thanks again. Pallas Blade (talk) 13:26, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Re: CoE[edit]

Thank you for the information. However, a news media report is hardly trustworthy for the details of canon law: as a professional educator, you presumably are aware that academic work in religious studies, history, sociology would not accept a newspaper report as authoritative in such a topic. Please find an actual reliable source that provides the information stated in this paragraph. Nyttend (talk) 14:02, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Instead of being patronising you could instead show me anywhere in the policies or guidelines which suggest that a major British newspaper such as The Daily Telegraph is not acceptable as a reliable source. The onus is on you to justify the removal of adequately referenced information. Until you do so you are required to follow WP:STATUSQUO. Therefore the factual information has been restored to the article. Your ignorance of the Church of England is no excuse for your disruptive editing on this matter. There is no such concept of "unordination" in the Church of England. Afterwriting (talk) 00:33, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree with Afterwriting on this. The Daily Telegraph is an excellent source for providing news. I do not think anyone would argue that it is reliable in terms of expressing an official opinion, but it is certainly reliable in providing accurate news and updates regarding a subject. So, indeed, it is a reliable source.SeminarianJohn (talk) 10:11, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 27[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page St. Gertrude (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.

Rowan Williams[edit]

I notice you removed the link I provided to the comprehensive bibliography of Rowan Williams which I have just made available here: Please could you explain? It's the first time I've ever edited a Wikipedia article. I can appreciate that the style may not have been up to scratch but I can't see how it can be anything other than helpful to point people to a full bibliography.

Thanks for asking. A personal website of this kind, regardless of the quality of its information, is not normally acceptable for inclusion in articles either as a reference or an external link. Links to websites which require a subscription or membership to view are also not normally acceptable. The policies are at WP:ELNO. Hope this helps. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 12:58, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Serial Comma[edit]

The serial comma is a matter of form and not just style. Its omission would largely be seen as erroneous throughout American English. Its regular placement avoids ambiguity that its omission entails.

The section is not specifically about American English. You also cannot add your personal commentary to articles and tell people what they should think. Afterwriting (talk) 11:24, 2 January 2016 (UTC)


Hi - if you are going to put personal comments in an edit summary undoing my edit which restored yours, maybe you should have commented when you decided to restore my edit? Or have I missed something? Doug Weller talk 13:29, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

I was momentarily confused by your edits and edit summaries and did not understand the problem until after I had fixed it. It seemed that you were restoring a problem and justifying it with an incorrect appeal to the MOS. I've already apologised to you for this so bringing it up here is quite petty on your part. Perhaps you should have noticed my correction before you reverted it. We all make mistakes. Afterwriting (talk) 21:11, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

Anthony Bailey[edit]

In reverting my edit you reduced his nationality to one nation and not three which are relevant to the roles the subject plays. you also incorrectly amended his wife's name. Culture759 (talk) 13:26, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

How did I did "incorrectly" amend his wife's name? And if he has three nationalities or citizenships then this needs to be made clear in the article. None of this excuses your mass reverting of my obvious MoS corrections. Afterwriting (talk) 13:32, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Peerages, baronetcies & many other titles[edit]

@Afterwriting: You will be well aware that I have recently (almost constantly) been in battle with MOS & some of its lead advocates. However unlikely it seems to me that I can earn support from (m)any quarters on Wikipedia since almost anything I touch seems to get wholescale criticism, I note that you have attended deftly to the Wiki article about baronets, for which I am much obliged. M Mabelina (talk) 02:41, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

@Afterwriting: You'll no doubt understand why I fear doing anything too drastic to articles nowadays, but I would be happy to see that so-called quotation ("Official Roll") either deleted or reworded. M Mabelina (talk) 05:03, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
@Afterwriting: how canst Wikipedians & I thus for better terms. M Mabelina (talk) 05:36, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
Hey if you have a point to make let me know - I'm here to co-operate. It's no good grassing up each other on Wiki citations, it gets us nowhere & looks a bit childish - let me know your thoughts - cheers. M Mabelina (talk) 00:02, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
It was already made very clear that this section requires referencing. Removing the citation needed tag was hardly being co-operative on your part. If you want to help then stop creating problems. Afterwriting (talk) 00:04, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
The so-called quote was not a quote - it had been bastardised before I saw it. In fact the whole article about baronets was a mess - I hope you can find the spirit within yourself to commend the present version? If not, just revert the whole thing whilst blaming Mabelina which is seemingly par for the course nowadays. I'd sincerely like to know a) what pleases you & b) what do you actually know about British noble families, titles, heraldry etc? M Mabelina (talk) 00:21, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Whether it is a direct quotation or not it still requires proper referencing. This is how Wikipedia works. Afterwriting (talk) 00:30, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

This is how Wiki should work & by the way I am or could be one of the most fervent advocates of what I think you are stating. However, what was written about baronets and so many other articles is utter nonsense & frankly if this is the quality that Wiki aspires to the whole project is going down the pan... M Mabelina (talk) 00:37, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
you only have to take a look at the articles about Lord Athlone & Lord Bessborough to see
@Afterwriting: are you responsible for "as the Knox line, have been made tenuous due to internal family dispute"? Sounds gossipy and there are definitely more substantive examples. Also who introduced the stuff about hersldic supporters? M Mabelina (talk) 01:49, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Style changes to University of Sydney[edit]

Hello, I see you have made some minor stylistic edits to the University of Sydney article. However, your recent reversion removed very significant updates to the rankings section, fixing rankings and clarity. Please make your minor stylistic changes on top of those important ranking edits. Thank you.

It is your responsibilty to correct any problems without mass reverting to a previous version and restore style mistakes in the process. Afterwriting (talk) 13:40, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Terry Wogan[edit]

You seem to stop people referring to Sir Terry Wogan as an "Irish-born British". He held citizenship for both countries, which is why he can be referred to as "Sir". If he were just Irish, he wouldn't be Sir Terry Wogan.

I really couldn't care less. The problem is that you are edit warring on an issue which is already being discussed on the article's talk page. Take your arguments there. Afterwriting (talk) 14:03, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Editing on Avril Lavigne's page[edit]

I'll have to respectfully disagree with most of your editing on Avril's page. The commas are their because when you describe someone, rather it's their profession or nationality, and then used their name, a comma must be placed before and after their name. Or if it's an specific item. Unless the item is at the end of the sentence, then just add a comma before it. For example, "Avril Lavigne's debut album, Let Go, peaked at number 1 on the UK Albums Chart." Or "Avril Lavigne's debut album peaked at number 1 on the IK Albums Chart." Both are correct. But saying, "Avril Lavigne's debut album Let Go peaked at number 1 on the UK Albums Charts", is incorrect because the sentence already mentions her album, but then states the name of her album without pauses in between. My teachers been teaching us this since grade school. One example I remembered was, "Let's eat Grandpa!", meaning that they're TALKING ABOUT eating their grandfather. But they really mean this, "Let's eat, Grandpa!", meaning that they're talking TO their grandfather. I don't go around throwing commas after every word, but I always reread the sentences before placing the comma where it correctly belongs. Kalope (talk) 22:41, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Many, if not all, of the commas you added to the article I considered as being either unnecessary or grammatically incorrect. Whether commas should be used in the way you used them in the article often depends on whether we are using the definite article (such as "the album") or an indefinite article ("an album"). Please provide some examples in my edits which you consider incorrect if you want to discuss things further. I will check my edits again to see if I have made any obvious mistakes. Afterwriting (talk) 23:29, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
I've changed back one of the edits you made as it was possibly preferable to include them both before and after the name of the album in this particular sentence. One problem with using commas in Wikipedia articles is that American English often uses them (and much more often) in ways which other forms of English generally don't. As Lavigne is Canadian then the article should be in standard Canadian English but I am not aware of how this differs from American English when it comes to punctuation issues. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 23:49, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Blossom Margrethe Dearie's name[edit]

Hello, I noticed that you reverted the spelling of Blossom Dearie's name with the note, "Not in reference". I checked again and it is still in the reference. Specific mention of the spelling is in the audio archive (not the text of the linked page) at timestamp 1:20 - 1:30 as I mentioned in the reference text (discussion of her name in general starts at 0:20). It seems reasonable to me that Dearie herself is the foremost authority on the correct spelling of her name. I don't want to engage in an edit war; can you agree with this? For your convenience I'm including the link here: Blossom Dearie on NPR Piano Jazz Thank you and Best Regards. JeffBuckles (talk) 09:38, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Her obituary in The New York Times originally stated her full name as "Marguerite Blossom Dearie". My reversion you are referring to was in response to this and was "correct" as far as the reference was concerned. But, as you will see from the "Correction" now at the end of the obituary, the paper later corrected her name to "Blossom Margrete Dearie" and I then also corrected her name in the article because of this. So there is no disagreement between us on this matter. Cheers, Afterwriting (talk) 13:16, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your message and I have had a look through the COI page. I understand and agree with the points made. However, the information I wish to take out it not a reliable source 'Daily Mirror' and the use of middle and maiden names pose a security risk to the family which is non-negotiable. As the page currently reads (unless changed again), I have no issue. Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:15, 26 February 2016 (UTC)

Okay. I don't have any real problem with your recent edits (but it wasn't wise to delete the whole personal life section as that kind of thing can get you on the wrong side of many editors). I agree that too much detailed information on people can be a potential problem and isn't usually needed. All the best to you. I enjoy seeing M. here in Australia.

Billy Brownless[edit]

By definition State of Origin is the games highest level, as only the best players are selected in the sides. And plenty of people have said it is, Wayne Carey for one in the video Wayne Carey feature - Part 1 (AFL (talk) 04:27, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Regardless of which players have said such things it is still only their personal opinion rather than an objective fact. Other notable players would probably disagree. And as state of origin games are no longer played by AFL players ~ and are not likely to be played again in the forseeable future ~ then it is obviously no longer the "highest level" even if it was once considered to be by some players in the past. Afterwriting (talk) 11:27, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

That's irrelvant, and I disagree about other players saying different things. It is by definition the highest level in the game, as only the best players were selected in the teams. And more than just players have said so. If you want to add it was the highest level in the game, feel free, but it is a fact that it was, and so should stay.SportsEditor518 (talk) 12:19, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Nothing "irrelevant" at all in my comments. Your edit only represents one POV and there is nothing which makes the POV that state of orgin is "by definition the highest level in the game" the actual truth. For the article to be NPOV then we can only say that state of origin games "have been considered by some players as the highest level in the game". Any other kind of wording is POV and / or personal commentary, both of which have no place in any Wikipedia articles. End of matter. Afterwriting (talk) 02:13, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
As an interested party, and in the interest of building a consensus, I concur with Afterwriting's position and the improvements that he is presently endeavouring to make. SportsEditor518 has been warned before and even considered for an topic ban (here) due to bias-pushing on the subject of interstate football. Aspirex (talk) 06:21, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Can I ask why you removed the honorifics from the non-ordained people, but left the honorifics for the clergymen on Revised English Bible ? Wayne Jayes (talk) 12:36, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Wayne Jayes : Thanks for asking. In many or most of these cases these people were ordained and I only removed the academic title. As per WP:CREDENTIAL (and elsewhere in the MoS I believe), academic titles or honorifics such as "Dr" and "Professor" are not normally used with people's names in articles. Some editors also remove clerical styles and titles on the basis of WP:HONORIFIC. I realise this seems inconsistent on my part but the latter guidelines on clerical styles do not seem so clear to me as that on academic ones. What are your thoughts on this?

The "Roman" Catholic Church[edit]

I noticed you reverted several edits in which I had removed the improper colloquialism "Roman Catholic" and replaced it with the proper term "Catholic". Would you please explain why "Discussion and consensus [are] required for this kind of change"? The "Roman" is gratuitous at best, blatantly incorrect at worst. It's not even of Catholic origin—it was originally used as a pejorative by the Anglicans, alongside such epithets as "papist", "popery", and the like. It is also almost exclusively an Englishism; in Spanish, for example, it is almost always referred to as "la Iglesia católica"; the term "la Iglesia católica romana" is a rarity.

(Also, walk up to the typical "Roman" Catholic, ask them what denomination they're part of, and they'll respond simply "I'm Catholic." The only other specification you'll typically get is "I'm [name a particular Eastern rite, e.g. Maronite] Catholic" if they're not part of the Latin Church, and they're feeling particularly talkative that day.)

Thanks. Crusadestudent (talk) 05:11, 03 May 2016 (EDT)

Crusadestudent : You need to have a read of Roman Catholic (term) which sets out the actual history and use of "Roman Catholic Church" as your assertions are flawed. It was also decided by the Wikipedia community some years ago that articles with "Roman Catholic" in their name or elsewhere should not have "Roman" removed without discussion and consensus on an article by article basis. Therefore no editor should go on some kind of crusade to unilaterally change uses of "Roman Catholic" to "Catholic" or "Roman Catholicism" to "Catholicism". It should also not need pointing out that the terms "Catholic" and "Catholicism" do not just apply to the Roman Catholic Church. Afterwriting (talk) 09:32, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

"Therefore no editor should go on some kind of crusade..." Well played, Afterwriting, well played. (Though I have to say, the article you linked to actually reinforces at least some of my assertions, and doesn't disprove the rest.) And just in case it was unclear, I didn't mean to come across as belligerent at any point. Crusadestudent (talk) 06:16 03 May 2016 (EDT) —Preceding undated comment added 10:17, 3 May 2016 (UTC)


You are right in telling the crusader about WP:BRD etc, only this new editor now got it twice, - please check their talk, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:35, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Assumption of the BVM[edit]

You reverted my edit, saying "A capitalised "Assumption" is only used for the name of the doctrine. An uncapitalised "assumption" refers to the the act." I must beg to differ. To take other examples: it's always "the Passion", "the Crucifixion", and "the Resurrection", whether talking about the events or the doctrines. Please revert back to my edit. Crusadestudent (talk) 23:06, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out instances of other incorrect capitalisations. I will not be reverting back to your incorrect changes. Afterwriting (talk) 23:11, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
You haven't substantiated their being incorrect. You've merely asserted it. Crusadestudent (talk) 23:22, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
What do you think you've been doing? Afterwriting (talk) 23:52, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
From MOS: "Spiritual or religious events are capitalized only when referring to specific incidents or periods (the Great Flood and the Exodus; but annual flooding and an exodus of refugees)." Thus Assumption, Resurrection, Transfiguration, etc., need to be capitalized. Those are all specific events. They only happened once each, to one person each. Crusadestudent (talk) 05:13, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

The Eucharist[edit]

Go to any page on the Eucharist on Wikipedia, go to any dictionary, and it's capitalized consistently as both a noun and as an adjective. The "Eucharist" is a proper name, not just another common noun. I know you have a thing for un-capitalizing everything religious in favor of your vision of NPOV, but you're the one in need of finding consensus on this topic before making further changes of this kind. (And as a side note, it really is starting to look like you're just out to get me.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crusadestudent (talkcontribs) 23:57, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

The "Eucharist" is a proper name (I never said it wasn't) ~ but "eucharistic" by itself is not. The MoS is clear on this matter regardless of how many pages make the same mistake as yourself. They also need correcting. If you start editing responsibly then you will no longer feel that other editors are just out to get you. It's simply really. And it's your choice. Afterwriting (talk) 00:06, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
From MOS: "Spiritual or religious events are capitalized only when referring to specific incidents or periods (the Great Flood and the Exodus; but annual flooding and an exodus of refugees)." I win on Assumption, Resurrection, etc. Those are all specific events. They only happened once each.
The MOS is silent on the names of the sacraments. Common use should then dictate that both Eucharist and Eucharistic are capitalized. Can you point to a specific section (link would be appreciated) that proves me wrong on this one? Crusadestudent (talk) 00:10, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Where you're wrong is that Eucharistic *is* proper on its own. The Eucharist is a very specific, properly-named thing. Would you like Wikipedia to only write "christian" and "catholic", too? "Christ" is a title, not a name, so by your logic it probably shouldn't be capitalized as an adj. Worse still, "catholic" is an adj. meaning "universal", DEFINITELY not proper on its own by your logic. Crusadestudent (talk) 00:13, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Re: "Penance (Catholic Church)" move[edit]

I saw that you moved the page "Confession (Catholic Church)" to a new page, since it was moved without consensus. Could you move that page back to its original location, "Sacrament of Penance (Catholic Church)"? This was its title before I moved it. Your move to a new location confuses things, since the concept of "penance" is broader than merely its sacramental usage within Catholic theological practice. Thanks! Canon Law Junkie §§§ Talk 02:05, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

User:CanonLawJunkie: This is all a bit confused. You will see that I actually moved the page to Penance (Catholic Church) after you had moved it here (also without consensus) from Sacrament of Penance (Catholic Church) to Confession (Catholic Church). When I then moved it to Penance (Catholic Church) I mistakenly thought that I was moving it back to its previous name. Since then you have moved it back to your preferred name (Confession (Catholic Church)) and then immediately afterwards back again to my name change of Penance (Catholic Church). Which name do you actually prefer? Afterwriting (talk) 05:21, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
My unasked-for two cents: "Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (Catholic Church)" would be the most complete and accurate title. (See CCC Part II Sec. II Ch. II Art. IV, "The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation" for the Church's view on the sacrament's various names.) This would capture the most essential elements of the sacrament, as well as reflect its most "official" name (note that in the CCC discussion, only "Penance" and "Reconciliation" are capitalized; "conversion", "confession", and "forgiveness" are not). Crusadestudent (talk) 20:07, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. "Penance" is also something Catholics do separate from the Rite of Reconciliation.Crusadestudent (talk) 02:13, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter[edit]

It is MOS not to cite/ref in infobox if that information is sourced else were in the article. I summit given edits that changes the correct Anglican Use apparently made up "Ordinariate Use" that it should be sourced in the ibox. Granted that the editor that did make the above edit did not pay attention to the source, it should hopeful, if left, stop other editors from changing to "Ordinariate Use". Spshu (talk) 12:50, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

I cannot agree. This information ought to be included in the body of the article and referenced there. If another editor changes the info box incorrectly then it can be reverted with an edit summary explanation. The Anglican Use article link should also be sufficient. Afterwriting (talk) 13:27, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
So. you intent to edit war over some attempt to stop an edit war? See how you disregarded that it has happen. As you stated in your edit summmary "As per the MoS we don't normally include references in info boxes." (Emphasis mine) So, do you intent to make them look at edit summaries when you don't either? If you are going to be a pain about this then I want "chapter and verse" of the MOS with direct link showing that this is absolute. --Spshu (talk) 13:47, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

I am using common sense to over ride the MOS to hopefully stop edit warring. Secondly, I gave a reasonable request for a link and quote to that part of the MOS that indicates it (since I can not find it quickly). And you denied as being a ridiculous argument. I did not make up the false term of "Ordinary Use". Either cite the MOS section or I will return it. I gave you a way to possible end the argument and you call me a pain? I give a reasonable cause for leaving the cite there and you just want to disagree. Who isn't using common sense you. Spshu (talk) 14:34, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Which vs. that[edit]

I've been following these edits to Enneagram of personality with interest. Afterwriting, I was surprised by your edit summary saying that "which" is more correct than "that" here. To an American, "that" is the only correct word here, and "which" is simply incorrect. It is a restrictive adjective clause, meaning that the clause is necessary to understanding the noun it modifies. For things (not people), only "that" can be used to introduce the clause. "Which" is for non-restrictive (unnecessary to identify the noun) clauses. See [1]. Be sure to click on the red word "Answer". Toward the end, you will see:

  • Some people use "which" restrictively, which is more or less okay (and popular among writers of British English) as long as no commas are involved:
Pianos which have a fourth pedal to mute the strings are popular among apartment owners.

However, "more or less okay (and popular among writers of British English)" is far from saying it is "more correct" than "that". Also see [2] and [3].

Since both "that" and "which" can be used in British English for a restrictive adjective clause, and "which" is not used at all for a restrictive clause in the U.S. and thus sounds ungrammatical, I do not understand why "which" is used so often in WP articles and why "that" is not used more often, if only to inject a bit of variety. In articles that use "which" for both restrictive and non-restrictive clauses, the word "which" appears overused.  – Corinne (talk) 03:36, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Lance Franklin[edit]

Hey – I just wanted to pick your brain on why you believe the lead for Lance Franklin shouldn't say Lance "Buddy" Franklin. I did a bit of digging and found that someone else had changed it back at the start of the year, hence the reason why it came as a surprise to me when you changed it again. I'm not entirely sure if your argument, as you presented it, is correct, as Franklin is almost always known by his nickname. Just thought I'd ask – you don't need to aggressive. 4TheWynne(talk)(contribs) 08:09, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

The reason has already been explained numerous times. You don't need to be disruptive. Afterwriting (talk) 08:11, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
It is also simply untrue to claim that Franklin is "almost always known by his nickname". He is frequently known by both names. When people's nicknames have replaced their actual name, such as with Sam Newman and Spike Milligan, then their article name reflects this fact. This article does not do this. [Neither does Franklin's profile on the Sydney Swans' website. Afterwriting (talk) 08:24, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Catholic Church[edit]

Hello, I am Lord Laitinen. I noticed you made an edit several months ago, adding what seemed to be new and unnecessary content to the paragraph pertaining to Mary's dogmas professed by the Catholic faithful. Though I have no doubt of your good faith, you don't quite seem to understand Catholic doctrine, which is being summarized on that page. Jesus is not a human person, but a divine person with two natures: one divine and one human. Jesus is not two persons in one, or one being made by combining two persons. The text you added (or restored) makes it sound like Jesus is not God, which is completely false. Once again, I am not accusing you of any wrongdoing, however, I am notifying you that the original wording pertaining the Mother of God dogma has been restored (then reverted by an editor possibly without good will and restored by me again). I agree with the addition/restoration of the explanation of the Immaculate Conception. I found this to be helpful, not harmful. I will also gladly tell you that the wording without "as mother of Jesus" existed long before the heretical modified version. Thank you for your good work, and God bless. ~Lord Laitinen~ (talk) 07:01, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Lord_Laitinen : If you want to start accusing editors of being "heretical" then you need to be very careful. I believe my theological understanding of the the incarnation to be thoroughly orthodox. Yours, however, comes across to me as questionable. If you really think that saying "as the mother of Jesus" Mary is the Mother of God is somehow heretical then your own understanding of the incarnation is very flawed indeed. That is precisely why she is called "Theotokos" / "Mother of God". The title was first given to Mary to assert that the incarnate Jesus was both divine and human (see Hypostatic union).

Afterwriting (talk) 09:43, 30 October 2016 (UTC)

Result of the AE complaint about your edits of Chiropractic[edit]

You've been warned for edit warring as the result of a request at WP:AE. If you continue to revert the lead of Chiropractic you are risking an AE block. While I'm here, I have noticed this edit summary which seems likely to be quoted if (for any reason) you return to AE. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 16:17, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

EdJohnston : Quite frankly, this has been one of the most absurd and nonsensical experiences I've ever had as an editor. Both the initial report and the warning for edit warring is unjustified and farcical. My edits to the Chiropractic article were completely acceptable by any reasonable standard. The editor who made the report is the one who should be warned for edit warring. There is so much dishonesty and hypocrisy involved in all of this. It is beyond comprehension and amounts to abusive bullying. Afterwriting (talk) 14:31, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
EdJohnston, Afterwriting was removing duplication from the lead. Later in the lead in the 4th paragragh it says "Its foundation is at odds with mainstream medicine, and has been sustained by pseudoscientific ideas such as subluxation and innate intelligence[29][30]..." The part about "pseudoscience" should not be mentioned in the first paragraph because it is duplication and misplaced text. Adding "pseudoscience" to the first sentence is a clear violation of WP:LEADSENTENCE. Restoring "pseudoscience" to the first sentence was clearly against WP:CON. The previous discussion resulted it in being deleted from the first sentence back in December 2015. EdJohnston, do you stand by your decision? QuackGuru (talk) 19:43, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
QuackGuru, if User:Afterwriting wants to appeal they should do so. The diffs submitted at AE showed Afterwriting repeatedly taking out the term 'pseudoscience' from the first sentence of Chiropractic. This happened three times on October 30 alone. There are no posts by Afterwriting at Talk:Chiropractic, so if they were trying to get consensus for this change it is not evident. The AE closed with no block or sanction against Afterwriting, though they were warned not to continue reverting the lead. EdJohnston (talk) 20:56, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
It is a clear violation of policy to add the word "pseudoscience" to the first sentence. See WP:LEADSENTENCE. There is no rationale reason to restore duplication to the lead. Editors never got consensus to restore "pseudoscience" to the first paragraph. Even the readers are complaining. That is an indication the recent changes to the lead are against WP:CON. Again, do you stand by your decision? Yes or no? QuackGuru (talk) 21:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
WP:LEAD is a guideline not a policy. This discussion suggests you don't understand the purpose of WP:Arbitration enforcement. The question was whether the remedies of WP:ARBPS ought to be applied due to any possible violation of Wikipedia policies in the editing at Chiropractic. I stand by my decision. In any case, you are not the person who has standing to appeal it. If you are not satisfied with the current state of the Chiropractic article I suggest you try to persuade the other editors on the talk page to agree to a change. EdJohnston (talk) 23:07, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
I have a different way of removing it without any current editor removing it. The readers know duplication is bias. QuackGuru (talk) 23:16, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
