Illogical rename[edit]

Please rename to what has been agreed by RobertsBiology and others.....Italian Mogadishu is a well defined title for an article centered ONLY in the fifty years of Italian control of Mogadishu......The name "Mogadishu,benadir,Somalia" is simply "illogical". Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:11, 6 January 2016‎ (UTC)

I am not sure I understand what you are saying. I think you are objecting to the recent renaming. The proper way to request to revert an undiscussed move is to submit a request at WP:RMTR, as I previously indicated in my edit summary. —BarrelProof (talk) 00:14, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, BarrelProof. I "support" move to Mogadiscio under Italian rule or Mogadishu under Italian rule (& also again Italian Mogadishu, a title chosen by user:RobertsBiology). I have written most of the article and I want to pinpoint that it is centered ONLY in the half a century of Italian control of the city: it is a small period of time in the history of Mogadishu (like there it is British Hong Kong and History of Hong Kong & Hong Kong). As AjaxSmack wrote, there is ample precedent for such articles at Wikipedia. IMHO it is illogical the actual rename of "Mogadishu,Benadir,Somalia", done just after the discussion over a rejected move/merge was finished: someone seems to wish to create "problems" & confusion here......

Well, we have now succeeded in moving the article to Mogadishu under Italian rule and redirecting some other titles to Mogadishu. I think that is a big improvement, and I'm pretty sure you agree. Hopefully now we can stop worrying too much about the title and focus on improving the content of the articles. (Personally, I am neutral on the question of "Mogadishu" versus "Mogadiscio" for the article about the city in the Italian context – I basically don't think I know enough about the topic to have an opinion about that.) —BarrelProof (talk) 17:14, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

To prevent ethnocentric edits[edit]

Dear administrator, thanks for your attention to this dispute. Unfortunately some users are trying to achieve ambitious ethnocentric aims and not historically-verified and documented facts are seeking especially in case of so-called the Greater Kurdistan territory. Our goal in free encyclopedia is to promote realistic and not ethnocentric knowledge. I provided some valid citations and sources to discuss but they were moved several times by the user Gomada. Another falsifying and WP:POVPUSH objective evidence is in cases of Feyli people page [1] and their language [2] which was converted to Feyli Kurds and Southern Kurdish language by this users Oblivious to hot discussions and dispute over their Lurish or Kurdish identity. I hope we find a solution for this dispute. I proposed a move requset to convert these pages to their original names Feyli People and Feyli language and not Feyli Lurs to discuss this pages more honestly. You can see many opposition views over these pages in their talk section. Best regards--Shadegan (talk) 18:01, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

I would like to help resolve this, but I don't really have expertise on the facts of the dispute. Incidentally, I am not an administrator. —BarrelProof (talk) 16:06, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

List of reptiles of North America - names of species[edit]

If you reverted List of reptiles of North America to not finished edit, finish it. Because so far some of names are decapitalized, others are not. This is chaotic and at this moment that article is spoiled. Darekk2 (talk) 17:02, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Your help is also solicited, of course. Reverting to consistent use of the wrong format is not the solution. —BarrelProof (talk) 21:42, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
All names in the SSAR checklist are capitalised. Darekk2 (talk) 22:44, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
They may be capitalized by the SSAR, but they are not capitalized by Wikipedia. —BarrelProof (talk) 01:14, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Sue Chandler and Linda Bostock and your proposed deletion[edit]

Dear BarrelProof,

Hi.... I am thinking to remove your prod's from these - but just thought I'd drop you a line first. I made these little stubs after getting into a little chat about the apparent lack of females in maths and I then found out that the main book most of us, of my age, in the UK had used for A level maths was written by some women. The book - a series of books in fact - were for many years "the" book for A level maths. My guess is many/most UK mathematicians of an age know their names but probably not that they were women, or anything about them. I couldn't find out much either as is obvious from the stubs. Having written their best selling textbook would seem to be enough to pass WP:prof in a technical sense but I have not been able to find out much about them and so I can see the prod could be justified even if I would rather they were kept. I have added another ref to Chandler which should help there - and will look for more - but I am dubious whether I kind find much. Anyway just thought I'd drop you are note rather than just removing your tags and best wishes, (Msrasnw (talk) 12:12, 21 January 2016 (UTC)) PS: I have for many years been a Teacher's fan but thanks to my brother am in the process of moving to Ardbeg.

Thank you for the comment. Of course it is your right to remove the PROD if you think that is appropriate, and I see that you have done so for Sue Chandler. I certainly have nothing against these two women, and I agree that their work seems important and that the best outcome would be if some independent reliable sources can be found to support the idea that their work is notable. If you like Ardbeg, I suggest trying Laphroaig. —BarrelProof (talk) 17:08, 21 January 2016 (UTC)


Remember that when adding medical content please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations. WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a build in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:11, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the note. That's quite a coincidence, as I was in the process of drafting a note for your user talk page to invite you to check that edit (as I had noticed that you had just edited that article). Feel free to revert my edit if the quality of the source is insufficient. —BarrelProof (talk) 22:18, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
