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 ocarinaforest.com, 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.

Hi Barkeep, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Lord Roem ~ (talk) 16:11, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Infobox with medalists[edit]

2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championship
Location Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada
Date September 7, 2014
Medalist men
1st, gold medalist(s) Javier Gomez  ESP
2nd, silver medalist(s) Jan Frodeno  GER
3rd, bronze medalist(s) Tim Don  GBR
Medalist women
1st, gold medalist(s) Daniela Ryf   SUI
2nd, silver medalist(s) Jodie Swallow  GBR
3rd, bronze medalist(s) Heather Wurtele  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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXxvdhE1zFc 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 74.118.90.24 (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)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Nebraska colors[edit]

Instead of reverting every damn edit, how about you talk. The school's/athletics dept. brand book says f5f1e7. We go by what the brand book says. We don't need to do the "digital only" as the cream looks fine. 🎄 Corkythehornetfan 🎄 04:53, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Or instead of getting snippy with me, we both realize that they are both acceptable according to the brand book and no further changes need to be made. I had my source, you had yours and we're both correct. BarkeepChat/$ 04:59, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Triathlon competitions[edit]

is not a catagory where you dump yearly results of multiple individual competitions

These were not multiple individual competitions listed on one page. These 3 articles are single, stand-alone triathlon events, i.e. triathlon competitions. Please discuss on talk page before removing again. BarkeepChat/$ 13:59, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Information icon Greetings. At least one of your recent edits, such as the edit you made to Category:Triathlon competitions, did not appear to be constructive and has been or will be reverted or removed. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make some test edits, please use the sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Can you not read what is written? The category Triathlon competitions is not a yearly event catagory —Loginnigol (talk) 15:36, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Please, then, tell me what it is. BarkeepChat/$ 15:39, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Well the 2011 ITU Sprint distance and the 2012 ITU sprint distance events belong to a catagory that collects ALL the yearly eventys of that SPECIFIC competition. That's how categories work on Wikipedia. —Loginnigol (talk) 15:44, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Can you reference a Wikipedia policy on this? I personally disagree, particularly in how it relates to triathlon. These are individual triathlon competition that are fit to be labeled with the category "Triathlon competitions." If you are adamant that this category be removed I suggest we move to seek a thrid-party's opinion elsewhere to resolve the difference. BarkeepChat/$ 15:51, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
(edit conflict) (talk page stalker) Loginnigol, please learn not to waste other editors' time. These competitions belong in either Category:Triathlon competitions or (better) one of its subcategories. You could easily have set up appropriate new subcategories yourself, and entered those cats in place of Category:Triathlon competitions on the individual races. That would have taken less time than you have spent of your own time, my time, and Barkeep's, and in reverting and discussing on talk pages. Incidentally, you failed to spell "category" correctly above, and failed to sign your first post in this section. You also said above, in a templated warning, that Barkeep edited "Category:Triathlon competitions", when he had made no such edit to the category, although he had categorised some pages there. (Note also that I normally don't remark on other editors' faults, but if you accuse other editors of faults, then you can expect to have your own pointed out.) --NSH001 (talk) 16:21, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

August 2016[edit]

Regarding the edits undone on the 2016 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team page, why are the edits not allowed to stay? I don't understand why multiple links not allowed within an article. To me it is more confusing if you see something you want information on (i.e. Lincoln, NE) to have to scroll back to the top of the page to find a link for it.wscsuperfanChat 20:00, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Read the WP:OLINK policy. Generally speaking, I agree that if the link was on a topic that a typical reader would need understanding on to further understand the article they are reading and the links were in different areas of a large article multiple links would improve the reader experience. In regards to your specific edits, you are adding repetitive links in the schedule table that are either to Lincoln, Nebraska or the TV network the game is scheduled to appear on. These links are all contained in the 14 line table and one link to the BTN (for example) is sufficient and navigable for the typical reader. Note that Lincoln has four links already included throughout the article. If you disagree with my interpretation of Wikipedia's policy I again encourage you to discuss it on the article's talk page so that more community members can weigh in.

Meredith Kessler[edit]

Earlier this month you made a request for help on on Wikipedia:Requests for page protection, because a single purpose account (SPA) kept removing content from the article on Meredith Kessler, because he/she does not favor having this article subject having content showing that they have been convicted of a crime. We have both posted various warnings on the SPA's talk page, but he/she carries on reverting.

Please could explain why this content should be retained in the article at Talk:Meredith Kessler.-- Toddy1 (talk) 00:29, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

At this time my argument would be the one you have cited on the other party's talk page, that being Wikipedia is not censored. The information maintains a neutral point of view and no undue weight is given to the subject. I'd be happy to engage in a discussion on the article's talk page and consider sound reasons for its exclusion. BarkeepChat 04:43, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
The single purpose account is edit-warring. He/she can be blocked for that if he/she keeps it up. One of the questions asked at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring asks the person reporting to provide evidence of an "attempt to resolve dispute on article talk page". So please post something at Talk:Meredith Kessler.-- Toddy1 (talk) 10:10, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Mass article deletion[edit]

Hi Barkeep. Just a notification in case you weren't aware, several thousand sports articles have been nominated for deletion. Please read more at User:Aymatth2/SvG clean-up/Guidelines. I noticed an article you worked on at Nikki Butterfield was among those proposed for deletion so thought you may have an interest in cleaning up other articles. There is no triathlon specific list yet but I'm sure you could request one. Thanks! SFB 21:48, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
