Information icon Hello, I'm Rider ranger47. I noticed that you recently removed some content from Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr without explaining why. In the future, it would be helpful to others if you described your changes to Wikipedia with an accurate edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry; I restored the removed content. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks.

Izzat al Douri[edit]

Alll sources at best imply that he has been 'killed' according to rival shia militias. With all sources confirming baath party denial. Another source, http://rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/250420153 confirms there is no DNA to check if it is him. So to claim he is dead is rather dubious. Next time you carry out reverts on wikipedia, please put in a new source or reference, I don't and neither do admins look upon the acts of vandalism nicely which is what it is considered if a source is not provided but its just a warning for a following attempt. Any update from an authentic news source perhaps not citing "Iraqi TV" which has an uncertain political provenance would be of good use. Regards, (Wiki id2(talk) 15:16, 27 April 2015 (UTC))

gregori-luxair[edit]

Hello :) thank you for your contribution in Nicola's Sturgeon Wiki page. As all Scottish , She is british , and her nationality is not Scottish , but british . Remember that Scotland is a nation (more or less the same that an American state) in the United Kingdom. So they do have british passports and legally they are british. Of course she's scottish. But being Scottish doesn't mean that your nationality has to Scottish too. I hope I didn't annoyed you much with my changes :D Gregori — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gregori-luxair (talkcontribs) 07:25, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Misery Business[edit]

Hello there! Please know that I am not trying to spread false information. I am just trying provide the most up to date news on Misery Business. I am a dedicated paramore fan and a few days ago, they announced this single had gone triple-platinum on their social media sites. I understand any tweet (https://twitter.com/paramore/status/624977858176360448) or facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/paramore/photos/a.35246164962.16531.5388374962/10150594388239963/?type=1&theater) or tumblr post (http://paramore.tumblr.com/post/125009584686/okay-this-is-starting-to-get-out-of-control) or instagram post (https://instagram.com/p/5kNpLYnTju/?taken-by=paramore) may not be the best things to site, but they are from the band so don't accuse me of "making these stuff up." What I'm trying to edit in is not false. In my second edit, I instead sited a reputable source, Alternative Press, who reported on this particular piece of news (http://www.altpress.com/news/entry/paramores_misery_business_certified_triple_platinum), so I don't understand why you also said "the sources you posted does not say the song went 3x platinum." I am confused as it clearly does report on the matter at hand and it is a credible source. I understand your trying your best to keep false information out from these pages, and I appreciate it, but maybe you should do your own research first before dismissing it as false.

I know the RIAA are the ones who award the certifications...their database on the website is not frequently updated unfortunately. Here are some more sources reporting on the matter, including Fuse (http://www.fuse.tv/2015/07/paramore-misery-business-triple-platinum) and Rock Sound (http://www.rocksound.tv/news/read/misery-business-goes-triple-platinum).

Gotcha, thanks. Ramres1 (talk) 20:56, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Cleveland Bay[edit]

The Cleveland Bay horse is NOT the only non-draught horse developed in England. Nothing is more English than the Thoroughbred, and that horse is very clearly not a draught horse. The Shetland pony was also developed in Great Britain, but it is neither English nor a horse (it's a pony).

Read the Thoroughbred article before you revert my edit again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by FCKGW-RHQQ2-YXRKT-8TG6W-2B7Q8 (talkcontribs) 00:55, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

1964 Coup[edit]

I posted my source, and my source is an official document published by the Brazilian House of Representatives. Coltsfan, are you brazilian or at least a proficient Portuguese speaker? At time the document I sourced was published (21/11/2013), the House of Representatives was controlled by pro-Goulart Worker's Party. Goulart was ousted by the congress on April 1st 1964, the military Junta was voted in by the Congress on April 9, 1964. It's part of the official history of Brazil and recognized by all parties in congress as of 2013. Here's the document again:

http://www2.camara.leg.br/camaranoticias/noticias/POLITICA/457600-CONGRESSO-ANULA-SESSAO-QUE-DECLAROU-VAGA-A-PRESIDENCIA-DE-JOAO-GOULART.html

...

Nao houve dissolucao do congresso ou guerra civil para caracterizar uma deposicao do governo pelos militares. A presidencia foi declarada vaga de acordo com o Artigo 79 da Constituicao, assumindo a chefia do estado o presidente da camara dos deputados Pascoal Ranieri Mazzilli. Abaixo o link do audio da ssessao de 1 de Abril de 64.

....

Fontes Secundarias - BBC/Blogs vs Fontes primarias / Documento oficial do Congresso e audio da Sessao de 1 de Abril de 1964. Eu acho que o artigo da wiki deve conter os fatos exatamente da forma eles aconteceram, e nao uma interpretacao pessoal e politica dos fatos. Quando se afirma que os militares depuseram o Jango, da a impressao que aconteceu de forma direta, "at gunpoint". A verdade e que o Jango fugiu antes de ser confrontado e o Congresso declarou o cargo vago. O Congresso nunca quis o Jango na presidencia, mesmo antes do envolvimento dos militares, por isso passaram a emenda parlamentarista em 1961.
