Concerning Proper Referencing[edit]

No, I do not believe that you made a mistake by removing my changes to the Ocarina page. You are correct in the fact that I did not properly reference any of the information I added. This is because there are not many books on the ocarina, and perhaps only one or two actually concerning its history. There also aren't any Internet articles that can be very much relied upon (such as the citations for, a site that has been created by a somewhat knowledgeable but rather uninformed individual). The information I had posted was obtained from years of experience and study - I'd like to point out that I more than doubled the section on the ocarina's history. As I will not cite myself as a source, it seems that you've got me beat. While I can personally guarantee that the information was all true, that won't count for proper verification. In all honesty, I was just trying to be helpful and perhaps correct some misguided notions. But I will not attempt it again. If you and this site are willing to pass up the information I've offered, then it's your loss. I understand your concerns over information that has not been cited properly. For all you know, I could be a crazy person who made all that up. And, though I might tell you it was true, there is no way to definitively convince you otherwise. I might have spent my entire night on that page. I might have been proud of the wrongs I had righted. I might have been disappointed when I checked my email this morning. But I understand and accept your decision (despite being somewhat of a disservice to anyone interested in the ocarina). No hard feelings.

Infobox with medalists[edit]

2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championship
Location Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada
Date September 7, 2014
Medalists men
Gold medal    ESP
Silver medal    GER
Bronze medal    GBR
Medalists women
Gold medal     SUI
Silver medal    GBR
Bronze medal    CAN
«2013 2015»

I haven't found a general sports infobox to show medalists for both men and women, but {{Infobox Skating event}} can do it and doesn't actually say anything about skating so it works for other sports. "Infobox Skating event" in the source might sound confusing but a redirect could be made. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:44, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Tom Danielson[edit]

You evidently removed my reference to (recently dismissed for a second drug offense) professional cyclist Tom Danielson's page. The content pointed out that Tom is both married and has a girlfriend named Kourtney Kompton. I'd like it if you replaced that content along with this video reference: It is an interview where he PUBLICLY STATES that he has a girlfriend named Kourtney! Why do I care about this so much? Not that it matters for accurate content policing, but I really dislike this guy for a number of reasons and I take great pleasure in seeing him suffer what I hope is great public humiliation. That said -- the facts remain and . . . .facts are stubborn things. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:15, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunately, in this case, facts need to be supported by a reliable reference. The Youtube video referenced above is not a reliable source in this case, particularly for the text that I removed: "Danielson has a girlfriend named Kourtney Compton, whom he met in Utah where she was working as a podium girl at the Tour of Utah". The video only indicates a girlfriend named "Kourtney." Too many assumptions made when solely basing it on that 1 Youtube video. BarkeepChat/$ 04:37, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
