Problems with the talkpage on Republican primaries?[edit]

I noticed in the history of the Talk:Republican Party presidential primaries, 2012 that you wanted to move a comment to another section but it seems that you didnt succeed. I have taken the liberty to put your comment in Talk:Republican Party presidential primaries, 2012#Merge proposed. Please have a look, and if you dont want it to be there you can freely delete (or put a delete line (S) over it), just remember to state that I was wrong putting it there. It was a interesting part in the discussion in any case. Jack Bornholm (talk) 11:29, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

I have undone the undoing I did of you undoing, or something like that. Like you told me on my talkpage. I am really bad at this myself, but I found some interesting advice that I have learned from: Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines#Own comments. Jack Bornholm (talk) 13:54, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Everyone can see the rest of this discussion on: User talk:Sgt. R.K. Blue#I made a bit of a mess) and User talk:Jack Bornholm#Please undo your undo of my undo Jack Bornholm (talk) 13:45, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Reclaiming old articles.[edit]

You ask another editor about how to retrive delected articles. Maybe I can help. Try if this procedure will help you:

Write the name New Hampshire Republican primary, 2008 in search or just press the link. You will then be redirected to the article "United States presidential election in New Hampshire, 2008" but just under the title there will be a line saying: "(Redirected from New Hampshire Republican primary, 2008)" press on that link and you will be back on what use to be the republican party primary. Go to history and undo the blanking of the page (properly the last edit and anyway the edit that erases a lot of bites), then you will have the old article back. Use the same procedure for the Democratic party or any other article.

Hope you will find the old article you are looking for. Jack Bornholm (talk) 14:08, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, Jack.CountMacula (talk) 13:10, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

There was a reason why I removed those information based on WP:COATRACK policy. The important information are already listed in there and should stay that way. Anything else is not notable. ViriiK (talk) 06:08, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

"One Morning in May"[edit]

Take the chords from the James Taylor version ([1], 1st & 2nd line: A G D A|A G D E) and transpose them to C (1st & 2nd line: C B F C|C B F G), then put them under the melody from IMSLP. They match for the first eight measures (nine really), at which point the Taylor arrangement shows some variation (A Fm D A [in C: C Am F C] and presumably melodic changes to go with it while the IMSLP looks like it repeats C B F G).

In other words, the James Taylor version is an arrangement of the Irish air. Hyacinth (talk) 00:18, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Listening to the Taylor song on Youtube it sounds like its in C, not A (as all the tabs show). I try not to rely on my ear, and though I believe there is no explicit policy, it is implicit through practice that citations rather than one's ear are needed on Wikipedia. Hyacinth (talk) 00:02, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Songs go in quotes, albums in italics. Movies & books go in italics. There's guidelines at MOS:TITLE (and WP:ITALICS & MOS:QUOTEMARKS). Hyacinth (talk) 21:00, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Bolding/Debolding 'second'[edit]

The article "major second" isn't about seconds or the term second, so the term second shouldn't be bolded. The term is bolded at "Second (disambiguation)", about the term second, and "second", about the interval of time. The article "major second" is about major seconds, and thus major second is bolded. Hyacinth (talk) 20:51, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

It looks like IP objected to having the staff position defined before the term on numerous musical interval articles (for example minor third: "This article is about the 'minor third' and should begin by describing exactly that, not thirds in general."), and I changed major second in accordance with or anticipation of that. Hyacinth (talk) 21:04, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

The article could look like this:

In Western music theory, a major second (About this sound Play (help·info)) is a second spanning two semitones. A second is a musical interval encompassing two adjacent staff positions (see Interval number for more details). For example, the interval from C to D is a major second, as the note D lies two semitones above C, and the two notes are notated on adjacent staff positions. Diminished, minor and augmented seconds are notated on adjacent staff positions as well, but consist of a different number of semitones (zero, one, and three).

but it doesn't. Do you know why? Hyacinth (talk) 22:14, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Per MOS:BOLD, "The most common use of boldface is to highlight the article title, and often synonyms, in the lead section (first paragraph)." The terms such as major tone are bolded as synonyms.

However, according to WP:BOLDTITLE they should appear in the first sentence. Probably in the format "major second (or synonym x, synonym y)". They can then be explained in later paragraphs (without bolding). Apparently they either should appear in the first sentence bolded, or they shouldn't be bolded. Hyacinth (talk) 22:28, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

The term defined in the article "definition" is bolded. The article reads: "A definition is..." Similarly, the term defined in the article "major second" is bolded. That article reads: "...a major second is..." Hyacinth (talk) 22:32, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Why aren't "'stipulative' definition" and "'descriptive' definition" italicized? Hyacinth (talk) 23:05, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I would object. Hyacinth (talk) 02:21, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Water fluoridation in the United States, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages CDC and California Proposition 10. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
