Archived Talk[edit]

Hi Catxx and welcome to the Horse Breeds task force! Thanks for your work on the horse breed articles. We definitely need those infoboxes put on all the articles that don't have them and I for one appreciate your work. A couple of things you may want to know about, however. One ongoing thing, constantly debated (though not for the last year or so), is the issue of wikipedia capitalization conventions versus proper name conventions. Most of the pony breeds we deliberately chose to capitalize as "XYZ pony" instead of "XYZ Pony" because wikipedia won't always find the article if a user forgets the capitalization (and it's a pain to create redirects for a zillion articles.) Anyway, if you don't mind, it may be wise NOT to change the capitalization on these unless there is a really special reason to. An example of a special reason was American Quarter Horse when that is the full breed name (No one calls them "Quarters!" LOL!) there was actually a minor edit war over that one a couple years ago! But generally, it's better NOT to capitalize the second word, but if you think there's a good reason to, feel free to take it either to the talk page of the article or to wikiproject equine (WP:EQUINE) Basically, I am of mixed feelings on the topic personally, and the article naming is inconsistent (we have about 350-400 breed articles here) so it's not a moral issue to me, but you may want to seek some consensus before changing 100 articles that someone else will want to revert.

Hi again Catxx. Yeah, I know about the capitalization thing. As long as the redirects work if someone just types in the name without capitals. The software is fussy. I would ask that you do be aware of two things: 1) I originally put that template into all the horse breed articles. Then, 2) just a few months ago, we had a fairly substantial edit war with an editor who unilaterally went in and REMOVED the equine template from all the breed articles (which was a side effect of a rather nasty edit war over templates in general). Now that you are putting them all back, don't be surprised if this other editor shows up and expresses outrage (I personally wanted to keep the template there, so I am OK with your work here, but heads up that it may reawaken another round of this...other than the two main combatants, the other equine editors have opinions, but not strongly held ones).
The other thing is if you could leave clearer edit summaries so I know when you have just added the template and/or infobox and when you have made more substantive edits or added photos...as it is, I have to open and check all articles you have edited to see what's happened. Most of it is really good, but a couple of minor things had to be tweaked (the photo in Lipizzan, the caption at Chincoteague Pony, etc...), you are doing such a great job that I haven't had to do much, but a good edit summary sure helps. I have tried to leave edit summaries when I did tweak something of yours, hope they are clear. If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact me on my talk page or leave a message at WikiProject Equine or at the talk page of a particular article. There are about 3 or 4 real active editors on the horse articles and we would all be glad to assist. Also be aware that there are a couple of articles that are real "fragile" in that they either reflect a delicately negotiated edit war truce, or are subject to some ongoing spats and too dramatic an edit could cause an upset, so please don't fret if we tweak some of what you do. Fortunately the biggest spat right now is in the horse racing articles over whether Australia or New Zealand claims certain famous horses, and I, luckily, am not involved in that one! LOL! Anyway, just another thanks for all the cleanup you are doing and it is MUCH appreciated! Montanabw(talk) 02:16, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
You don't give a poop? Does that mean we can give you sh**? (grin). Just PLEASE be here for us the next time someone goes back into all 350+ breed articles and wants the template out, OK? Montanabw(talk) 23:23, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again and stuff[edit]

Just a quick thanks for all the much-needed work you are doing on the horse articles with the infoboxes and photos. It's a tremendous effort and much appreciated. An FYI, don't put a section at the top of the lead. Not sure what the deal is, probably has something to do with the sites that mirror to wiki and to search engine stuff, but the wikigods don't like the TOC to be first, they want an intro, THEN the first heading. It kind of makes sense, I think, but also one of those things that others care about greatly so best to just go along with it. You only did an initial header a couple times, so absolutely no big deal. (and usually indicative of a need for a stronger lead, but that's a different issue altogether) Also, if you put in a photo but are at a loss for a caption, leave a note in the edit summary to alert others that we need to come up with one. It is a delight that you are able to find so many images, also. Thanks again! Montanabw(talk) 04:00, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm groovy with it in collapsed state. Should you wonder why I act so dicey, see here. I lost that round, when the one person behind that spat went in and unilaterally removed all the templates (that I had originally put in). I'm sure she will be back, eventually.

October 2010[edit]

Information.svg In a recent edit to the page Domestic rabbit, you changed one or more words from one international variety of English to another. Because Wikipedia has readers from all over the world, our policy is to respect national varieties of English in Wikipedia articles.

For a subject exclusively related to the United Kingdom (for example, a famous British person), use British English. For something related to the United States in the same way, use American English. For something related to another English-speaking country, such as Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, use the variety of English used there. For an international topic, use the form of English that the original author used.

In view of that, please don't change articles from one version of English to another, even if you don't normally use the version in which the article is written. Respect other people's versions of English. They, in turn, should respect yours. Other general guidelines on how Wikipedia articles are written can be found in the Manual of Style. If you have any questions about this, you can ask me on my talk page or visit the help desk. Thank you. me_and 20:06, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
