Hi, good job with the new meat dish categories; however, we've got a number of pork items that are actually "Pork products" and not really "Pork dishes," like Salumi or Lardo and Lap cheung (which is a type of pork sausage). Do you think a "Pork products" category is warranted? Badagnani (talk) 00:34, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm, could be worth it, if there's enough things to put in it. --Alynna (talk) 00:36, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

You seem to do an awful lot but don't shout about it, don't get into disputes and don't wikilawyer. This is the first barnstar I've deemed fit to hand out :] Rushyo (talk) 01:26, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks :) --Alynna (talk) 12:31, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Category:Egg dishes[edit]

How would you think about a new category Category:Egg dishes? That could go under Category:Eggs, which would leave miscellaneous non-food things like Egg rolling in Category:Eggs. Badagnani (talk) 18:46, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Sounds like a great idea. I went ahead and created it. Will populate when I have time, unless you get to it first. --Alynna (talk) 21:55, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Gender of God[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your kind words. I tried improving the Christianity section to bring it back in scope, and I was rewarded with a barrage of condescending complaints on the Talk page for my trouble. It's nice to get some appreciation for my efforts. Thanks again.--Jeffro77 (talk) 00:11, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

As a reminder, WP:3RR is a bright-line restriction, not the right to 3 reversions. You were in fact edit warring. The proper response to edit warring is almost never edit warring yourself, barring very specific exceptions.--Tznkai (talk) 22:19, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I got a bit overexcited. I'll try to keep a cooler head in the future. --Alynna (talk) 22:48, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
No problem.--Tznkai (talk) 04:32, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I think you have a typo in the quote. -- Banjeboi 12:18, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, good catch. Fixed. --Alynna (talk) 12:33, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
No prob! -- Banjeboi 14:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: Ethnoreligious[edit]

Hi Fellow Editor, I just wanted to thank you for the work on the above article. It was a bit of a mess. I am keen to tighten it up further. The list outside the legally defined ethnoreligious groups, do you think it maybe a good idea to get some fsort of reference for each to prevent people from adding groups "willy nilly"? Thanks --Sikh-History 09:47, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

I think the list of legally defined ethnoreligious groups in the UK might be complete (not sure though). But we should definitely source the top-level "List of ethnoreligious groups". A source for each one saying that it's an ethnoreligious group should be findable. --Alynna (talk) 10:53, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
Ok I have tagged individually the ones that need citation. I managed to find links for Jews and Sikhs. I think possibly Romany Gypsy too, but no citations for others. Thanks--Sikh-History 12:10, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Top, bottom, versatile[edit]

Why do you deny the obvious? --Meister und Margarita (talk) 21:07, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

I assume you mean, "Why did you revert my copy-paste move of Top and bottom to Top, bottom, versatile?". I did so (and intend to do so again momentarily) because it was a copy-paste move, because it was undiscussed, and because the new name should probably be Top, bottom, and versatile. You should always use the "move" tab to rename pages. And it's good form to suggest a move on the talk page before performing it - let alone before performing it again when someone's reverted you. --Alynna (talk) 22:51, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Authonomy notability[edit]

Alynna please see my comments about Authonomy on the associated Talk page. While I can see your reservations about notability, the size of the community membership is probably larger than half of the towns listed in Wikipedia, but more significantly than that it is a part of News Corporation, Rupert Murdoch's vast, arguably evil, media empire. In that respect it really needs to be covered since the goings on at NewsCorp are the subject of a considerable amount of analysis in the broader sense across a multiplicity of disciplines. The fact that authors are beginning to emerge from the authonomy slushpile is another indication why we should have an article on this.

This form of online slushpiling is moreover likely to be a growth area, and while there isn't a vast amount of authoritative secondary source coverage out there of any note, this will undoubtedly change. The blogosphere has it though, and the journalists of the yellow press will show up sooner or later; the reality of course is that we are now at a tipping point in the web/media convergence where reliable secondary sources are open to question in themselves: if NewsCorp/HarperCollins really wanted reliable secondary coverage (which they undoubtedly will if the POD suspicions of some are well-founded) they could get on the phone to The Times, or any of the other hydra-headed organs of News Corp, and arrange for some to be whistled up forthwith (actually I already found some and while it would qualify as a reliable secondary source in a strict definition, its very provenance and the media in which it appears undermine it - it made #5 in The Times Top 10 Online Book sites in July!).

Wikipedia isn't paper, and policy should not impinge on pragmatic realities: Authonomy is owned by one of the richest men in the world and is an important keystone of his agenda and a watching brief needs to be kept on it.Sjc (talk) 06:11, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Ordination of women in the United Methodist Church[edit]

Great work on this one - I am taking it off my watchlist because it is in much better hands now! Thanks. – ukexpat (talk) 15:36, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! --Alynna (talk) 01:43, 5 December 2009 (UTC)


You were interested last time. What about this time? Talk:Homosexuality#Rewrite_agenda_2 Phoenix of9 03:33, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the notice. I volunteered on 27 January. --Alynna (talk) 19:02, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Arghh. Sorry, lol... Phoenix of9 05:36, 3 February 2010 (UTC)


Are you a gay person? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:10, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

I identify as queer, actually. --Alynna (talk) 12:24, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Interesting, I thought queer was offensive to most GL people. Fireheat624 (talk) 21:13, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Some people find it offensive, but recently it's been reclaimed by some LGBT people. The article on queer discusses this issue. --Alynna (talk) 02:13, 26 May 2010 (UTC)


I was wondering why you edited the page for Takoma Park Middle School since you reference your location to New York. Did you ever go there? Fireheat624 (talk) 21:19, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

I edit many pages that have nothing to do with me. But yes, I went to TPMS, from 1996-1999. --Alynna (talk) 02:13, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Gay Rights Activist[edit]

I noticed you do alot of Gay rights page editing Etc. A political Gay rights activist page is being improperly up for deletion after he is quoted in the Miami Herald calling the lead democratic candidate for Governor a Bigot for not supporting Gay marriage on religios grounds. I think its wrong for people to bring politics and dislikes of Gay marriage issues Etc to the pages of Wikipedia. Thank you for providing a objective view point to the issue - Please see Darrin McGillis page and the link to the nomination page. I posted as follows:

  • Keep - notable concert promoter, owner of notable record company and notable political activist, plenty of news sources can be found, see, MTV, Yahoo Music, ITUNES, Billboard Magazine, Countless other news clips on his record label see, News Clips, His concert tours included James Brown, Rapper Producer Dr. Dre, Menudo, Expose, The Jets and many others, see, Concert Tours, he has also embargoed a Menudo concert in San Juan Puerto Rico San Juan Star Newspaper, in Politics he received over 39,000 votes in the 2008 Clerk of the Circuit Court Race in Miami Florida, he sued the Elections Department when they placed his name incorrectly on the ballot see, Lawsuit, he was the only candidate to take a stand for Gay Marriage in the Florida Governors race and said so in the South Florida Gay Newspaper, and recently in the Miami Herald called out Alex Sink the lead candidate for Governor for being against Gay Marriage on religios grounds Miami Herald June 16 2010 it's clear that Mr. McGillis is notable Concert Promoter, Record Label Executive and Gay Rights Political Activist. Please do not use Wikipedia as a playground to voice opposition to political candidates who oppose your views or whom you do not like, do that at the polls. This nomination appears to have been sparked by a Alex Sink supporter as it comes immediately after the Miami Herald article came out and this is improper. A simple Google search of Darrin McGillis shows he is more notable than what wikipedia requires and this nomination seems to be just a political move by those who do not like Mr. McGillis stand and views on Gay Marriage and Gay Rights.
