Retract accusations[edit]

Please retract your blanket-accusations of branding others as deletionist over this AFD or provide diffs.I do not ever remember self-identifying myself as an inclusionist/deletionist.Thank you!~ Winged BladesGodric 16:27, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

@Winged Blades of Godric:, I took that to be a comment purely regarding Kirbanzo's comment which said Speedy delete under WP:G11 - definite case as it currently only serves to publicize a person. Requires substantial rewrite if not deleted. Kirbanzo (talk) 18:12, 2 March 2018 (UTC)[1] I don't think it was aimed at yourself. For context, Kirbanzo is a very avid deletionist who recently had to withdraw several of his nominations because they were so off. Prince of Thieves (talk) 16:34, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
Maybe:) I actually declined his CSD on the same subject but I feel we're always a step better without casting such generalized terms.~ Winged BladesGodric 16:58, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

Retract anything about you, Winged Blades. I do think Kirbanzo is a bit trigger happy, but it takes all sorts. I know nothing about Indian regional TV but I bet there are people on here who do. Let's find the knowledgable people when we're thinking of deleting a well meant stub. The vanity ones, they've got to go ASAPBashereyre (talk) 20:28, 3 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited William Beale (priest), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Carlton and Cottingham (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Erroneous edits[edit]

In your edits to Bryan Robin, Richard Thomas (bishop), and Arnold Wylde, I suspect that you intended to add Category:Bush Brotherhood priests, but instead you pasted in the entire Lionel Renfrey article. I reverted your edits, and I'll leave it to you to actually do what you intended to do. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 22:35, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Capping[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work. The names of job titles are not normally capitalised on en.WP. This includes "dean", "rector", "vicar", at the like. Thanks. Tony (talk) 13:47, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Tony I understand that in a title such as David Smith (bishop) it would have a small b. However if you say David Smith was appointed Bishop of Maidstone in 1987 then surely that requires a capital?

All the best, Bashereyre (talk) 20:11, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi its me again Tony. Looking at the article David Smith I can see what you are getting at. I'm guessing you would put vicar and Rural Dean. At my grammar school, some 40 years ago, had I put the vicar of Bray or the mayor of London I would have been put in detention. Old habits die hard!

Issues with your articles on religious figures[edit]

Hi, thanks for your work in this area. It would save us a lot of time and effort if you could incorporate a few salient guidelines for en.WP. In particular, please note how year and date ranges are rendered (button at bottom of your edit box). Please don't link "1976", the year of publication of one of your major sources. "Priest" and "chaplain" should almost certainly not start with a capital letter. The other job-terms are debatable on that count.

You're welcome to post on my talkpage if you have any questions. Here's an example. Tony (talk) 08:11, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Tony[edit]

I often see articles entitled Richard Boyle (bishop of Ferns and Leighlin) If I wrote this on the board at the school where I work, my head teacher would quite rightly say I had made a mistake. Wikipedia has its own set of guidelines I try to follow, but I don't always succeed.

Conflicting information in the article William Fullarton (priest)[edit]

In the article William Fullarton (priest) you created it has a death category of 1632, states he was "...Archdeacon of Armagh from 1633 until 1655" and also that he was ordained in 1828. That's quite impressive! Tassedethe (talk) 02:57, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Please can you address the incorrect information in the article. Thanks. Tassedethe (talk) 15:04, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

You must have the source :-)[edit]

Hi Basheyeyre, thanks for your response above. Well, "B/bishop of X" ... people have different opinions, but the gradual tendency in English is to downcase. I concede that it's mostly in journalistic registers at the moment, but you'd find a minority of books and journal articles that downcase. I'm OK if you want me to retain the upper case when it's attached to place, so let me know.
I came here to say that there's a typo in a year of birth, here. Could you add the digit? Tony (talk) 08:33, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Tony. I don't know if you are English but I am; and a teacher. A raft of reforms brought in by Michael Gove are now fully embedded. Rightly or wrongly, these tend towards the very formal. I'm 57 and got an A* at English A-level, and my (very good) English teacher told me never to bother with a semi-colon. Now you cannot get a top grade without being able to use one. Gove's rationale for these changes was that they would put the next generation of English (country not subject) graduates on level par with other top countries. My own feeling is that it will penalise them further, because as you so rightly say the world as a whole has decided to use my native tongue but simplify some of its more arcane conventions. I have decided to use was a curate at, served curacies at, was the incumbent of, served incumbencies at. However, the Archdeacon of Somewhere is a three word title in the way that "plumber of Somewhere" might not be. Incidentally, the modern convention is to say Woodstock Road, Madeline Close, Glebe Drive etc but in centuries past the second word was written starting with a lower case ie Fleet street, Rotten row, Penny lane!Bashereyre (talk) 12:16, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Honorifics[edit]

Glad to see that you're starting pages on clergy you think we've overlooked. One quick note on that: you've been starting those articles with honorifics such as "The Very Reverend". While I understand that that is the proper usage in some contexts, on Wikipedia we avoid introducing folks with "Very Reverend", "Most Honorable", "Most Holy", and so forth. You can see these guidelines at Wikipedia:honorifics. I've removed the terms from some of your recent articles already, and would appreciate it if you would avoid them in the future. Thanks! --Nat Gertler (talk) 14:37, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
