Rhys Morgan article deletion[edit]

I agree that the article is a puff piece, and many many if the authors are his personal friends! At least one of the cited articles is by his personal friend Martin Robbins.

It doesn't appear to break any Wikipedia rules but Rhys Morgan article is dubious. His father is a doctor, a consultant. Off course he advised his son not to drink bleach, for goodness sakes!

Thanks for your efforts.

Your comments at WP:ITN/C[edit]

Hi, I noticed your comments on the Long March section of WP:ITN/C. Your comments to Lihaas here could be considered a personal attack, so I just wanted to remind you to assume good faith with other editors, and to comment on content, not the contributor. Thanks, Prodego talk 22:02, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I do love the irony of this. Not only are you personally attacking other users, you've been vandalising as well, as in the topic above this one. Your hypocrisy is staggering. Getting (talk) 12:21, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Getting, unless you have something actually constructive to say, I suggest you go back to building up those many articles you've been working on. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:47, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
You really are an acidic little man aren't you? Personally, I am quite happy to point out Doctorbuk's hypocrisy. In the meantime, maybe you'd like to explain why you have failed to answer me when I pointed out the times you used personal attacks against me? Getting (talk) 16:16, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
I'm quite happy to point out that you moved an article without discussion, causing a problem with reverting it back, then ordered me to "kiss your ass" when I advised you on best practice. If you're now stalking my talk page to leap on whatever you can find, may I request you could be much more constructive by sorting out my disambiguation links as and when they occur. doktorb wordsdeeds 16:35, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Getting, see WP:NPA. I would have replied to you but you blanked it all out, remember? At no point did I personally attack you. Feel free to continue this discussion at my talk page, along with diffs to back up your accusations since I konw Doktorbuk won't want this nonsense continuing here, nor would I. The Rambling Man (talk) 16:49, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
And had you not referred to me as a vandal, when such an attack is completely unjustified, I would have dealt with you in a far more civil tone. Sadly, you chose to be needlessly hostile towards me. As did your mate Rambling Man, he too called me a vandal. Getting (talk) 17:01, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
No, not at all. Maybe you're not a native English speaker? What I said, explicitly, was "Just to let you know, continuing to move pages without consensus, particularly if they're moved back through a bold revert, would be considered the act of a vandalistic editor.". So, if any editor "continued" to move pages without any kind of consensus then they would be considered acts of vandalism. At what point did this become me using "personal attacks" or accusing you of being a vandal? Can you provide me the diffs please? Also, calling me "an acidic little man" is a direct contravention of WP:NPA for which blocks are a standard outcome. Do you want to retract that? The Rambling Man (talk) 17:30, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
A standard outcome is it? The standard being one that you have just decided to make up, presumably. Getting (talk) 17:39, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
No, not at all. Personal attacks result in blocks all the time. Perhaps you're not aware of that. Calling someone "an acidic little man" is a direct personal attack. Suggest you retract it and apologise. And read beyond the first sentence of WP:NPA, one of our policies, where it actually says quite clearly: "Repeated or egregious personal attacks may lead to blocks.".... ouch. On all the other points, I'm still waiting for you to provide the diffs. Come on, let's go. I haven't got all night, I've actually got content to improve. The Rambling Man (talk) 17:49, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
I love the way you think you can blackmail me into to retracting my opinion of you, how sweet. Utterly futile, but sweet nonetheless. Well, if you have content to improve, I suggest you go and improve it. Getting (talk) 17:53, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Your recent edit to UK local elections 2014[edit]

Please go to Talk:United Kingdom local elections, 2014 and make comments to avoid edit warring. Thank you213.120.148.60 (talk) 17:34, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
Doctorbuk, please stop vandalising this article. There is nothing in the 'WPCrystalBall' policy that backs up what you are doing. The updated page does not try to predict the future, but shows the CURRENT situation regarding council control (which is consistent with all other local election pages). Please stop amending the page to show historical results which reflect better on your party of choice.90.205.192.93 (talk) 02:39, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
I'm doing no such thing. There is no evidence you can provide which shows that, at polling day 2014, the councils will be set up as you have them. There may yet be no elections in 2014, they are not guaranteed. You are projecting today's situation onto over 12 months hence - that is the very definition of CRYSTALBALL. doktorb wordsdeeds 02:41, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
You don't seem to realise that you are changing the article to reflect how the councils were in 2010, where as I am changing the articles to reflect how they are NOW. Do you see why what you are doing makes no sense? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.205.192.93 (talk) 02:44, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
I do realise that. Because that's how our elections work. The elections in 2014 are those fought in 2010. We have always, and will always, compare like for like. Here's a tip - go to Preston local elections, and see what they compare to, like for like. Or go to the UK elections, 2013, and see how these are compared, like for like, with 2009. Our system has always compared one election with the previous, corresponding election (see how general elections disregard by-elections for example.) What you are doing is trying to keep the 2014 elections "up to date". This is wrong. It's also projecting, and that's Crystal Ball. doktorb wordsdeeds 02:54, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
No I'm afraid it is you who is wrong. And here's an example - take a look at the 2012 UK local election results page and look at Stockport. You will see that the 'Previous Control' is given as 'No Overall Control', which is what this council became in the previous election in 2011. It does NOT reflect the like-for-like situation in 2008 when the LibDems had control. You seem to be mistaken into thinking that the pages have always shown results on a like-for-like basis when they have not. The phrase 'Previous Control' means control directly before the election. If it was done on a 'like-for-like' basis based on results 4 years earlier it would say so.90.205.192.93 (talk) 02:59, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
No, I'm afraid you are wrong (as is, alas, that article). A councillor has a four year term in some councils (such as all the County Councils being run this year). They were first elected in 2009. We compare like-for-like. Ditto 2014 - London Councils were elected in 2009. They are being fought again "like for like". Councils which elect "in thirds" - such as Stockport - *should* be compared like-for-like, not year-for-year. If that is the case on Wikipedia, it is wrong and should be corrected. I point you towards the article Preston local elections and others (I think Manchester) which makes this point clear. If you don't understand the electoral system of the country, don't mess with the articles. You may be causing confusion and misinformation. As it happens, you are in danger of breaking 3RR, so please be careful. doktorb wordsdeeds 03:08, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
It seems it is you who are confused here. Take a look at the BBC election page for Stockport in 2012. Does it say that this was a NOC gain from the LibDems (since the LibDems held this council on a 'like-for-like' basis in 2008?) No. Because that is never how the electoral cycle works. Everyone is aware that councillors are elected in 4 year cycles. This does not mean that you would show the 'previous control' based on the results from 4 years ago as this information would be misleading and incorrect. Please stop wrongly editing this page, or you will be reported for vandalism. Thank you. IpswichBlue74 (talk) 03:19, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
It seems you are confused. The electoral cycle always works "like for like". A councillor elected in 2008 is up for relection in 2012. That councillor's result would have to be compared "like for like". Ditto all the results that year. Ditto all the results, for all the councils, in that year. That the BBC has it wrong is of no concern to me. That you have misunderstood this simple concept is, as you're going to continually spread misinformation without cause. Given that 2014 will see London Boroughs fight elections that will be compared "like for like", what makes everything else exempt from this? Or have you invented a new rule? doktorb wordsdeeds 03:23, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
So are you seriously trying to tell me that the BBC is wrong, all of the previous wikipedia articles are wrong, and only you are right? You need to learn that you are very much wrong here. Everyone understands that the elections work on a 4 year cycle. But when you are stating what the 'Previous control' of the OVERALL COUNCIL is before the 2014 election is - that refers to the control of the OVERALL COUNCIL BEFORE the election, not the status of the 1/3rd of councillors elected 4 years ago. I will give further examples from BBC, Telegraph, Guardian.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/vote2012/council/E08000007.stm
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/local-elections/9242816/Local-elections-2012-results-map.html (Check Stockport)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2012/may/03/elections-2012-english-councils (Check Stockport)
Now you will see that everyone of these is completely consistent in NOT showing 'like-for-like' results, as with all previous National wikipedia pages. The fact that you have shown this wrongly for Preston is not my problem. So for the last time, please stop vandalising the article with your incorrect information or I will report you.IpswichBlue74 (talk) 03:32, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
I am seriously suggesting that media organisations don't understand how to report local elections. It's not my fault that this shortcoming exists. If the BBC wants to compare the local elections of 2012 with those in 2011, then they are wrong. It's misleading, it's statistically meaningless, and simply incorrect. I don't think you misunderstand as much as you pretend, for you clearly accept that "like for like" is the only way to compare London Borough elections and County Council elections, so you can't possibly argue that Stockport is an exception, where councillors are elected for yearly terms. If you do believe this, you are wrong, and by editing the articles on these terms, you are vandalising them. I suggest you consider whether you would be better suited working on other parts of the Wikipedia, for this is clearly something you haven't got a handle of. However, with all that said, I will wait until other editors are awake before continuing to work on this. doktorb wordsdeeds 03:55, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
This is simply ridiculous. The difference is that the London council elections and the county councils are all-up every 4 years. So for the 2014 election page it is perfectly acceptable to show the 'previous control' for the London councils as the 2010 results as there have been no changes since then (although if control were to change as a result of by-elections then the information would have to be changed).
This is not the same for the unitary authorities or district councils which have held elections since in 2011 and 2012. Therefore control of many of these councils has changed since 2010 and this needs to be reflected in the 'previous control' in the 2014 page.
The only things that need to be shown are previous control before the election, and new control after the election. It does not matter whether you believe the national media or previous wiki articles to be wrong - that is not my problem (it is in fact you who is wrong and can't seem to understand how the election cycle works). But the wikipedia articles must be consistent and reflect the accurate reporting of serious news organisations, not one individual who can't seem to accept the truth.
