Irrelevance of the day of the week 30 years after something happened[edit]

Re your edit summary here:

"Tha accident happened after a team party following a Saturday night game with Boston in the early morning hours of Sunday."

Can you explain to me how this is different from, say,

"The accident happened after a team party following a Friday night game with Boston in the early morning hours of Saturday."

or

"The accident happened after a team party following a Thursday night game with Boston in the early morning hours of Friday."

All I see as relevant (and I am old enough to remember when this happened) is that he died in the early morning hours after a game the previous evening. I do not see why the day of the week is, over 30 years after this happened, so essential we have to use it in the text. Using the actual dates is enough for the reader to know and distinguish between the two days. There is nothing about his death that requires knowing which day of the week it happened on to understand.

I would point out that neither Death of Diana, Princess of Wales nor Pearl Harbor attack give the day of the week those events occurred in their ledes. And those events were of much more moment than the death of Pelle Lindbergh. (Also, none of our biographical articles give days of the week for their subjects' birth and death dates).

It puzzles me why you are making such a big deal about two words of relevant, accurate information which has been in this entry for more than two years. It certainly does not in any way violate any guidelines or policies of the Wikipedia Project. I was in fact with Pelle, who was a good friend of mine, until just a few hours before his accident. He did not play in the game on that Saturday night against Boston in which he served as the backup to Bob Froese. The reason that the team had the party at the practice facility after the game that night was because a) it was a Saturday (as opposed to a weekday) night, and b) that the Flyers had an unusual six day break before the next game and so would not practice or play the next day (Sunday). Had one or the other of these not been the case, the team would not have had a late night/early morning team party that Saturday night and Pelle would not have been involved in the accident that killed him. Thus the day of the week and time of day (i.e. "early Sunday morning) was a significant element in why the accident happened. Centpacrr (talk) 07:12, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
OK, responding after about two and a half months, I see your point (and I am sorry if I came across as brusque; I was unaware that you had known him and I apologize for any hurt feelings).

It would be helpful if we got some of this context in the article—I remember when this happened the unusual in-season near-week off was cited as a reason why the Flyers would have a party that Saturday, something not otherwise done by NHL teams during the regular season. Perhaps, if the sources cited have that information (or if not, we can find them), we can begin that section on his death by giving that context (which the article doesn't really have as written). I would be happy to draft some text for that for your approval before putting it in the article. Daniel Case (talk) 23:29, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

I have added the following sentence to the lede: "Lindbergh died at age 26 as the result of a single vehicle auto accident following a late Saturday night in season team party." Centpacrr (talk) 23:54, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

[Wikigraphists Bootcamp (2018 India)] Discussion on selection criteria[edit]

Greetings, Wikigraphists Bootcamp (2018 India) is proposed workshop funded by the Wikimedia Foundation, to equip users from the Indian community with the skills to illustrate using Inkscape and similar tools. This is basically the first of its kind workshop. So we've opened up an open discussion on Meta-Wiki about the selection criteria for participants. As you've a quite decent experience in this area, your opinion will be very helpful. Please given your comments at m:Talk:Wikigraphists Bootcamp (2018_India)#Ideal participation. The discussion will be open until the end of 25 May 2018. Regards, Krishna Chaitanya Velaga (talk • mail) 11:41, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:07, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Techwriter2B has been using a certain IP range since 2014[edit]

Hello, Centpacrr. I was reading the LTA pages when I came across the Techwriter2B entry. I've noticed he's been using a certain IP address range since 2014: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/32.218.0.0/16&offset=&limit=500&target=32.218.0.0%2F16 - this is the address range. The edit summaries, tone, topics of interest, their form of incivility, all match with this LTA. Lolifan (talk) 20:48, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. This guy is a real trouble maker. Centpacrr (talk) 21:03, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
