Getting involved with WikiProject: Food and Drink[edit]

Hi! My name is Emma and I am a new Wikipedia user, taking at class at my university about Wikipedia. I'd like to get involved with the WikiProject: Food and Drink and saw that you were an active member. I would love to get some advice from you about editing food/drink articles or suggestions for editing articles in general. Thanks! Emmakknight (talk) 20:11, 3 February 2015 (UTC)


Academic journal articles[edit]

Hi, thanks for creating articles on academic journals, such as Geomorphology (journal). Some helpful tips on how to make these stubs a bit more "meaty" can be found at WP:JWG. Happy editing! --Randykitty (talk) 15:46, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Epigenetic valley, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Drainage pattern (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Hello Dentren,

I would like to know your opinion about this proposal. --Keysanger (talk) 22:47, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Galápagos Microplate[edit]

Hi Dentren. I reverted something you did. ;) Last September, you moved that article to North Galápagos Microplate, but that's a different plate that had it's own article, too (see North Galapagos Microplate). Yes, the two articles look very similar... I moved it back to its own place, but now I can't move the North Galapagos Microplate to North Galápagos Microplate (the redirect is already fixed), because I'd need admin rights to move it over that redirect, as it has more than one revision. ;) If you happen to be an admin or know one, could you please have them move it? Otherwise it just stays without the proper á. Best regards, --Thogo 00:16, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for reverting my presumed error. I will check the procedure to move. Dentren | Talk 18:12, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

WP:30[edit]

Thank you for listing your dispute at Wikipedia:Third opinion. Your request did not follow the guidelines for listing disputes. These guidelines are in place because they make sure that the editor who writes the Third Opinion is not biased, and that (s)he can easily see what the dispute is about.

The description of the dispute should be concise and neutral, and you should sign with the timestamp only. A concise and neutral description means that only the subject matter of the dispute should be described, and not your (nor anyone else's) views on it. For example, in a dispute about reliable sources, do not write "He thinks this source is unreliable", but rather write "Dispute about the reliability of a source". To sign with only the timestamp, and without your username, use five tildes (~~~~~) instead of four.

Your request for a Third Opinion may have been edited by another editor to follow the guidelines - feel free to edit it again if necessary. If the dispute is of such a nature that it cannot follow the guidelines, another part of the dispute resolution process may be able to help you. For example, Wikipedia:Wikiquette alerts is a good place to alert others to a particular editor's behaviour. Thank you for opting to use the dispute resolution process.Godsy(TALKCONT) 19:22, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Nope its not edit warrying, its holding your intransigent non-consensual changes back until a consensus is reached. Want to do changes? Then discuss in the talk page of Economic history of Chile. Dentren | Talk 21:13, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

You have been blocked from editing for a period of 24 hours for edit warring. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you think there are good reasons why you should be unblocked, you may appeal this block by first reading the guide to appealing blocks, then adding the following text below this notice: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.

During a dispute, you should first try to discuss controversial changes and seek consensus. If that proves unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection.

War of the Triple Alliance / Paraguayan War[edit]

I have proposed an alternative formulation, you may wish to comment. WCMemail 20:26, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Peneplain[edit]

I've modified your recent edit to peneplain. The article is about the subject and not just the term. I've moved the quote to the bottom under the new section: History of the term. The reference you had provided was incomplete (Chorley, 1973) so I changed to: Chorley, 1973, The History and Study of Landforms or The Development of Geomorphology, Volume Two: The Life and Work of William Moris Davis, Methuen, 1973. If that is incorrect, let me know or fix it. Thanks, Vsmith (talk) 14:29, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Estudios Sociológicos[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Estudios Sociológicos has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable journal. Not indexed in any selective databases, no independent sources. Does not meet WP:NJournals or WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Randykitty (talk) 17:18, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Estudios Sociológicos for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Estudios Sociológicos is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Estudios Sociológicos until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Randykitty (talk) 18:15, 16 June 2015 (UTC)


Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion 2[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. --Keysanger (talk) 20:34, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Hello Dentren. Please see my plan for closing this which I expressed at the AN3 report. You may respond there if you wish. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 21:51, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
It is still hard to understand what this disagreement is about. Maybe you could find a good way to explain it to outsiders who know little about South America. If it were only about credibility of authors, WP:RSN might handle it, but it seems to be something more. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 22:07, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
The report about Economic history of Chile is now closed per the terms I originally described. Be aware that either of you can be blocked if you do *any* reverts of the article, prior to a talk page agreement. See my suggestions in the report for how to make progress. Thank you, EdJohnston (talk) 17:15, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
The original dispute is about how to portray the origin of the War of the Pacific in the Economic history of Chile article. A spin-off dispute started by Keysanger is that he questions the use of Gabriel Salazars works for the origin of the war, calling his explanations "fringe". Apparently Keysanger thinks or suspects that Salazar is a "Marxist" and would therefore not be a good source. Dentren | Talk 23:05, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Consider making a section at Talk:Economic history of Chile that lists what several historians think is the origin of the war, and how the war was related to the economies of the various countries. You could also indicate what the major questions are on which you and Keysanger disagree. If there is great diversity of opinion among historians, Wikipedia can sometimes give a brief account that doesn't try to explain the causes. We can then link the reader to the references and ask them to make up their own minds. EdJohnston (talk) 23:47, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
The problem is that there is only two people in this dispute. Two persons with different approaches and views are unlikely to reach any consensus. I have seen how intransigent Keysanger can be in pushing his views by exploring the archive of talk:War of the Pacific, so I don't have high expectations. Dentren | Talk 09:11, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Description of the causes of a war[edit]

Hallo Dentren,

I posted a request for mediation. I hope you participate: Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Description of the causes of a war.

--Keysanger (talk) 14:24, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Formal mediation has been requested[edit]

The Mediation Committee has received a request for formal mediation of the dispute relating to "Description of the causes of a war". As an editor concerned in this dispute, you are invited to participate in the mediation. Mediation is a voluntary process which resolves a dispute over article content by facilitation, consensus-building, and compromise among the involved editors. After reviewing the request page, the formal mediation policy, and the guide to formal mediation, please indicate in the "party agreement" section whether you agree to participate. Because requests must be responded to by the Mediation Committee within seven days, please respond to the request by 1 July 2015.

Discussion relating to the mediation request is welcome at the case talk page. Thank you.
Message delivered by MediationBot (talk) on behalf of the Mediation Committee. 14:46, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Request for mediation accepted[edit]

The request for formal mediation of the dispute concerning Description of the causes of a war, in which you were listed as a party, has been accepted by the Mediation Committee. The case will be assigned to an active mediator within two weeks, and mediation proceedings should begin shortly thereafter. Proceedings will begin at the case information page, Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Description of the causes of a war, so please add this to your watchlist. Formal mediation is governed by the Mediation Committee and its Policy. The Policy, and especially the first two sections of the "Mediation" section, should be read if you have never participated in formal mediation. For a short guide to accepted cases, see the "Accepted requests" section of the Guide to formal mediation. You may also want to familiarise yourself with the internal Procedures of the Committee.

As mediation proceedings begin, be aware that formal mediation can only be successful if every participant approaches discussion in a professional and civil way, and is completely prepared to compromise. Please contact the Committee if anything is unclear.

For the Mediation Committee, TransporterMan (TALK) 13:24, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Message for you[edit]

Mediation rejected[edit]

Hi Dentren,

I refused the mediation of Steven after he deleted my contribution. --Keysanger (talk) 12:42, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Certainly your contribution was lest to say a step backward in the content dispute. The thing for you is that you will have it hard to find a mediator that avails snowballing of disputes. Dentren | Talk 12:53, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
With step backward you mean surely that: A quick look into the archives of talk:War of the Pacific reveal the real inferno that nationalistic issues can bring on. But it was written by you, not me. Regards, --Keysanger (talk) 08:56, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Translation[edit]

Hello, A user named MarshalN20 directed me to you when I asked about translating an article from the Spanish wikipedia, in this case the Guerra del Pacifico article, which I saw on a Latin America-related portal needed translation. I'm wondering what sort of protocol I should follow for translating articles as well as whether or not it would still be helpful to put time aside to do it. Thanks. 70.173.216.115 (talk) 20:39, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

The current article on the War of the Pacific is quite complete and referenced. So a complete translation from the es:Guerra del Pacifico would not be good idea. The War of the Pacific article do have problems. I suggest you compare similar sections in the Spanish and English articles and complement War of the Pacific with material from Guerra del Pacifico whenever you feel its an improvement and additions are properly sourced. Dentren | Talk 12:31, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Tags on War of the Pacific[edit]

Please stop applying tags to sections of War of the Pacific unless you are willing to state exactly what parts of the article you think contain synthesis amounting to original research and otherwise what the issues are. Robert McClenon (talk) 00:29, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

I have stated it, before and have stated once again today, this time more concisely at your request. Dentren | Talk 07:29, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
Dentren, you are right and I understand what you indicate. Articles should not be written with the opinion of single author taking precedence over everything.--MarshalN20 Talk 13:37, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
MarshalN20, yes, and there are more concerns on the War of the Pacific to rise albeit it would be disruptive to raise them now. Dentren | Talk 09:52, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Arid diagonal[edit]

Last spring you added the Arid Diagonal article. The first sentence under the Cause and origin section begins: "The Arid Diagonal is a result of the locking of the South Pacific High..." I don't have access to the reference used, but the wording is confusing, specifically what does locking mean there. Another user has asked on my talk and we would appreciate a bit of clarification. Thanks, Vsmith (talk) 20:36, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

OK, I've found a pdf of the ref and modified the wording of the article a bit. Vsmith (talk) 21:33, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
