Request in October 2016[edit]

Without any real justification, User:Diannaa reverted all of my edits to Newburgh Raid. It appears they did so based on a mistaken and erroneous belief that the material was copyrighted by the Newburgh Museum [1]. First, the material on that site is released to the public domain under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International. See the website's footer for proof. I know this is the case because I am a director with the Newburgh Museum and authored the material on that website which was used in the Wikipedia article. I authored it and allowed it to be posted on the museum's website solely on the condition that it could be used anywhere else, like Wikipedia. Therefore, the removal of my revisions were in error and I would kindly ask that you restore all of the edits.--YHoshua (talk) 03:19, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

The ideal location to discuss article content would be on the article talk page; or to address your concerns directly to the other editor on their talk page. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 16:49, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
Nevermind, I see this discussion was also taking place at User talk: Diannaa#Newburgh Raid, and now appears to be resolved in the article. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 16:51, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Qumran Caves[edit]

While I can't say I hoped for my edit to go unnoticed, I am curious to know in what way my addition was either untrue or irrelevant. As events regarding the Qumran Caves unfold in the media(especially ones that involve well-known people) they should be documented in the corresponding Wikipedia page.Shiftyrye27 (talk) 00:06, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. The material is a joke comment that is poorly sourced (using his own statement as the source, so "in the media" is being loosely interpreted in your statement above). Also, due to the history in the article of multiple editors having reverted similar material in the past and the replies given to existing edit requests on the article talk page, it's pretty clear that community consensus is against the addition of the material. Feel free to bring it up on the article talk page to try to sway consensus. If no one replies to your discussion on the article talk page, you could always initiate an WP:RFC request over there. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 23:17, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
