CDPs included in population list[edit]

What are your thoughts in regards to adding all CDPs over 100,000 to the list? In addition to Arlington and Honolulu, there are four in Nevada (Paradise, Sunrise Manor, Spring Valley, and Enterprise) and one each in California (East Los Angeles) and Florida (Brandon) according to the census website. I began a discussion list on Talk:List of United States cities by population page under the headline CDPs. Thanks. --Moreau36--Discuss 18:50, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Katy Perry - CDT Dates[edit]

I understand your line of logical with the response you left on my talk page but I don't feel the majority of people think in the same way. Being a vast country, there are several states that share city names. For Wikipedia, that is the reason why there are wikilinks, to provide additional information for the reader. Also, I am sure that residents of Duluth, WI are 100% aware there is not a venue by the name of "Arena at Gwinnet Center" in their area. The same for Columbia, Maryland and Columbia, South Carolina. While the cities may be the same, the venue (Merriweather Post Pavilion), is well-known in the South so the connection with Maryland is instant. Itsbydesign (talk) 06:50, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Hey man I was hoping to have your input on some new points posted to the talk section of Maduro, particularly the recent comments that "CIA will kill" his opponent, when his opponent is liked internationally, and his shutting down of an airport to prevent his opponent (Capriles) from landing. I have three Venezuelan sources listed and was hoping to run at least with the shutting down of the airport. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:07, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Grady Hatton[edit]

You linked to the wrong Warren Texas. He was from Warren, Tyler County, Texas not Warren City.

Change to the List of current state leaders by date of assumption of office article[edit]

Dear Editor,

If you want to change the principle of sorting entries in 'List of current state leaders by date of assumption of office' article by changing dates from the country's independence to the date of the leader's entry into office, then please apply this rule consistently throughout the whole article, not just to a single person. So please correct the dates of the Prime Minister of Brunei, and the heads of state of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Eritrea, Montenegro. I remember them off the top of my head to have taken office before their country's independence. And please create a second entry for Hassanal Bolkiah, who only assumed the position of head of government upon the country's independence. ZBukov (talk) 12:34, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Same-sex marriage in Illinois[edit]

Hi, please revert your recent move of Recognition of same-sex unions in Illinois to Same-sex marriage in Illinois, also the links to it: the State Governor has not yet signed the bill, so it is not yet law. In other similar cases (e.g. Washington State, Maine, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island, Minnesota, New Jersey) we waited for the Governor's signature, so Illinois should be treated similarly. Thank you. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:57, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

No. The Governor has explicitly said that he will sign it and the bill is just waiting on assembling people for a signing ceremony, so reverting everything for a few days at most and then moving everything back is just unnecessary server work. Dralwik|Have a Chat 17:19, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Name change Alice Kagawa Parrott to Alice Kagawa[edit]

Hi. Could you help me to understand why the page 'Alice Kagawa Parrott' was changed to 'Alice Kagawa'? 'Alice Kagawa Parrott' is the name that appears with her work in museum collections and her oral history interview in the Archives of American Art. It seems like it should be 'Alice Kagawa Parrott' on Wikipedia, but looks like the name was changed shortly after the article was created. Thanks. StaceyEOB (talk) 16:00, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

The page was originally "Alice kagawa" and Parrott seems to have never made it into the article title. You can see on the page history. I can move it, but the page never had Parrott in the title in the first place. Dralwik|Have a Chat 16:04, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I agree that her article should be situated at Alice Kagawa Parrott and I've moved it there. The article was started by Aakeefe as Alice kagawa and I think Dralwik just moved the page to capitalize Kagawa. Gobōnobō + c 16:09, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Yep, I was just capitalizing the last name; since the body of the article used Kagawa I didn't take much notice of the married name. I also put my reply above (changed to reflect the move) on Stacey's talk page. Dralwik|Have a Chat 16:10, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Equatoguinean president[edit]

Hi Dralwik, please note that the first president of Equatorial Guinea, Francisco Macías Nguema changed his name in 1976. So I guess the pipe is appropriate there, as the article title uses his original name. ZBukov (talk) 00:20, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Deleting != Tidying[edit]

About your recent change to The Outfield's page: I question your use of the word "tidying" to describe removing links. Are the links non-functional? Is the page and the reader better served by their not being there?

Not speaking as an Outfield fan. Just tending to disagree with the less-is-more concept in terms of online encyclopediae. Morfusmax (talk) 18:00, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

I understand your concern Morfusmax, although when it comes to external links I do lean towards the less-is-more: the official site, some neutral music-centered database like Allmusic, and then let Google handle something like a fan club. I went back and readded the Youtube channel, although I don't think social networks tend to be proper general info links for an encyclopedia. Specific posts for major events are fine imo, but links to the overall channels are too much clutter for not enough worth.

Edit Request: Kentucky[edit]

World Same-sex marriage map[edit]

Kentucky: Should Kentucky be re-added as dark green? An order was issued and a date given for when it goes into effect. Traditionally on the SSM map, a jurisdiction is added even before it goes into effect. My only concern is that "Government/court announced intention to recognize" also seems accurate in this case. However, on the SSM map "Colors higher in the list override those lower down."

Colorado: A green ring should be added for Colorado per talk.

Also, are you okay with me suggesting edits on your talk page or does that bother you? (Apologies if it bothers you.) --Prcc27 (talk) 03:11, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Kentucky Update Request[edit]

Other Updates[edit]

Could you also update Colorado and Tennessee please?
Thank You, Prcc27 (talk) 00:56, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Further Update[edit]

Utah should probably also be updated on the Homosexuality map. Especially since there's a ring for marriages that were performed in Pennsylvania, even though it's not legal there. As for Colorado, even though they have other partnerships, unlike other states- they recognize same-sex marriage for tax purposes and ssc can file state and federal taxes jointly. That's why I suggested a ring be added for Colorado.

Thank You, Prcc27 (talk) 01:28, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

That's what's interesting about the United States of America, since it is a Federation not a Unitary state; same-sex marriage is decided at the state level rather than the federal level (for now). Also, it's possible that a law will be passed that will legalize same-sex marriage (rather than a supreme court decision). --Prcc27 (talk) 02:40, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Mexico Rings[edit]

Hi, sorry to bother you but.. I noticed that the World Homosexuality Map has less rings (for Mexico) than the other maps. Is there a reason for that or...? --Prcc27 (talk) 05:27, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Mexico is honestly kind of a mess, and it's a simple lack of coordination between the maps. At some point tomorrow I'll synchronize them. Dralwik|Have a Chat 06:05, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a looooooooot, KUKI <3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:23, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

I'll try, but I don't quite see what the new states are. Note that the marriage equality map won't show civil unions, as they are overridden by the Mexican government recognizing same-sex marriage. Dralwik|Have a Chat 01:13, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

SSM Map Rings[edit]

Hi, could you please fix the Indiana and Ohio rings? Ohio's ruling was in Cincinnati I believe. Also, what do you think of the suggestion I made at the talk? --Prcc27 (talk) 00:58, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

(Nevermind, it looks like we're debating where the rings should go). I still think something should be done about Indiana asap. Whether it's placed on the capital or placed on the ruling location. --Prcc27 (talk) 01:17, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Re: If Ohio is added, Kentucky qualifies as well (also why Tennessee doesn't and Texas does)[edit]

Hello. I noticed your recent edits: A. change "allow" to "recognize" in section title of "States with stayed rulings to recognize same-sex marriage" (emphasis mine), and B. if Ohio is added, Kentucky qualifies as well. Note that the table title still reads "States with stayed rulings for same-sex marriage."

I will concur with the edits. Just a few thoughts; no need to reply.

I know there's a distinction in three different styles of rulings: 1. The Ohio (Henry v. Himes, Apr. 14, 2014) ruling finds the state's same-sex marriage ban (i.e. amendments) unconstitutional, and forces the state to recognize out-of-state marriages, but not perform them. 2. The Utah ruling also finds the state's same-sex marriage ban (i.e. amendment) unconstitutional, forces the state to recognize out-of-state marriages and to issue licenses to perform them, and 3. The Kentucky ruling, in the final district court order (Bourke v. Beshear, Feb. 26, 2014), orders the same-sex marriage ban (i.e. amendment and statutes) "void and unenforceable," presumably forces the state to recognize out-of-state marriages, and does not explicitly state whether the state shall issue licenses to perform in-state marriage.

If we want to get technical, we'll have to look at the final orders in each district court case and note the exact status of each case. But as many of these cases are headed for appeal, I think the issue will become moot. I would say at this point to go in a more general direction; so that any stayed ruling for same-sex marriage, whether in-state issuance of marriage licenses/certificates or out-of-state recognition, would make the list; however, the ruling would have to specify that marriage amendments are unconstitutional.

I am against including Tennessee (Tanco v. Haslam, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33463, Mar. 14, 2014) in the list for now because of that issue (i.e. it does not find Tenn.'s marriage amendment unconstitutional), also that ruling is only a preliminary injunction (with a ruling on the merits to come later) and it applies only to the six plaintiffs, not statewide.

But when I notice this, I also see that the Texas case (De Leon v. Perry, 2014 WL 715741, Feb. 26, 2014) is similar to Tennessee in that it also does not find Texas's marriage amendments unconstitutional, and also the ruling is a preliminary injunction (i.e. not a ruling on the merits). However this injunction is broader than the one against Tennessee, as it applies to the entire state, and forces Texas to recognize out-of-state marriage, as well as to allow it to be performed in-state. Because of it being broader, I lean toward Texas staying in the list, but not 100%.

As you probably know, both the Tennessee and Texas rulings are under interlocutory appeal (i.e. appeal without a final ruling in the court below).MarkGT (talk) 18:25, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Are there any Inkscape tutorials? I was trying to figure out how to change the current SSM USA map from red/gold stripes to sold gold, but can't.

Ping me in a reply please :) EvergreenFir (talk) 04:27, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

EvergreenFir No clue on Inkscape striping; note the SSM in US map, unlike the others, is never edited in inkscape. Instead, open it up with notepad and you should find the code simple enough to scroll through. Note two main sections: the composite coding before each state's outline, i.e. here's the current stay striping:
<g id="stay-constitutionbanmore">
<use xlink:href="#part1of2" class="stay"/>
<use xlink:href="#part2of2" class="constitutionbanmore"/>
If you scroll pass the state outline gobbledygook, you'll see each state listed with its status. That's what I change to update a color.
A fuller walk-through is at File talk:Samesex marriage in USA.svg#Guide to editing this map. Dralwik|Have a Chat 04:33, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
That would be so much easier! I can typically decipher coding like this. I'll play around with it! Thank you! EvergreenFir (talk) 04:36, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome. The Inkscape maps, I don't dare bother with the coding. Dralwik|Have a Chat 04:37, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Seriously that was super easy. Used "replace" function of Wordpad and did "stay-constitutionbanmore" → "stay" excluding the first instance. Now all gold. I feel so accomplished lol. EvergreenFir (talk) 04:42, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Same-sex marriage proposal map[edit]

Hey, if it's not too much trouble, could you please make a better version of this map [3] so I could present it to the talk page? Thanks, --Prcc27 (talk) 08:06, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

So trimming the civil union colors? Sure, although I don't think that discussion will get anywhere. Dralwik|Have a Chat 16:03, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

(Edit) Hey, sorry to bother you again but could you please make a better version of this map [4] possibly even just make an svg version of it? This same-sex marriage map is also currently in use [5] but might need to be switched to svg. We may not be able to change the same-sex partnerships map, but we can surely make a same-sex marriage map and same-sex union map. Thanks, --Prcc27 (talk) 01:06, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Honestly, trying to get two separate maps isn't going to work. Maybe tomorrow I can create the maps, but with the discussion on the SSM in US map talk page going in a circle I feel it'd be a wasted effort. Dralwik|Have a Chat 03:24, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Okay, well I kinda already added the map to 5 English articles and 4 Spanish articles. I definitely don't think the civil unions map would be a wasted effort, one of the people in the talk who was against getting rid of civil unions said it was fine to create a separate civil unions map (which is also on 5 English articles). --Prcc27 (talk) 03:32, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

It'd be best if you rolled those back. Bluntly I don't see what you're trying to accomplish here, and this seems like spreading maps around the Wiki just to get the point across that marriages and civil unions are different. Dralwik|Have a Chat 02:41, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

By the way, I updated your SSM-only map to match the striping on the main map and darkened the ban color. Dralwik|Have a Chat 02:48, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

(edit) Thank you very much. I'm not very familiar with WP:POINT (first time seeing it) but my reasoning behind having different maps is that on same-sex marriage articles the same-sex partnership map might be a little too much. Furthermore, it isn't meant to discredit and replace the partnership map. That's why at least 1 of the articles has all three maps. Also, someone who was against changing the partnership map suggested that I make all the maps I want. --Prcc27 (talk) 02:57, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Prcc27 Truth be told I do like the simpler marriage only map, although rather as a text-editable SVG. I have a copy of the SVG on my computer; if after the three days no one has voiced objection to your new map, I can upload the SVG version. Still not sold on a separate civil union only map, since those unions are really only notable in states without marriage and you have local registries of unions to worry about. Dralwik|Have a Chat 03:10, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
The civil union map is necessary because it includes states that also have same-sex marriage. For the articles that touch on these unions only it is very helpful since most people don't even realize those states still have them. There is already a local registries map. --Prcc27 (talk) 23:39, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello Dralwik. I would please ask that you do not upload the map(s) that Prcc27 is asking for. The consensus roundly rejected their suggested revisions (i.e., removing CU/DP content), so they made brand new maps with said rejected revisions and started posting them in lieu of (and in some case case in redundant conjunction with) the standard svg map we've been using, undermining the rejection of said revisions. Converting the new maps over to SVG would be a waste and enable more disruptive edits. Please don't upload them. Thanks! Thegreyanomaly (talk) 04:29, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Thegreyanomaly No worries, I am not going to. Dralwik|Have a Chat 04:36, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Thegreyanomaly (talk) 04:39, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Just an FYI, while I still firmly oppose the marriage-only map (which is fortunately out of use), I made an SVG map of the non-text editable CU/DP PNG map Prcc27 was putting everywhere and uploaded it at File:Same-sex unions in the United States.svg. I have kept consistent colors with File:Samesex marriage in USA.svg (though it seems Prcc27 wants to break that consistency in regards to the shade of red). Anyways, I just thought to keep you in the loop. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 19:07, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks for letting me know. I have no objections to a civil union map, although I don't quite see the need for a separate map. Dralwik|Have a Chat 21:57, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

The Beatles (album) Move Review[edit]


I think that's an excellent suggestion. The White Album presents an marvelous case study by which to elucidate Wikipedia's article titling policy. I closed the discussion in a way that was counter to my own instinct; were I Wiki-King, I'd have moved the article. I believe consensus to support a move might one day be achieved, if the argument for the move were advanced in the right way. This would involve conceding that The Beatles is a fine name for the article -- that the question of "The Beatles vs. The White Album" is muddled and close and likely forever unsettled. However, "The Beatles (album)" is not the best name for the article, in light of WP:NATURALDIS. Essentially, this is the course you are pursuing.

Unfortunately, the RM I just closed was too crowded by the issue of "OFFICIALNAME vs. COMMONNAME" for it to have gained consensus on WP:NATURAL point. I don't think the move review should succeed, because I don't think consensus support exists for this argument yet. However, I hope the closure I made will refocus the discussion away from "officialname" silliness. In so doing, the next RM will be more likely to concern itself with a different point: disambiguating terms are best avoided. I think consensus could, one day soon, be formed on that basis to support a move to the White Album. If the argument is about "The Beatles vs. the White Album", a large number of Beatles fans will always disagree, for a reason that is not wholly absurd (nor against policy), because the name "The Beatles" has a large currency. If the argument became a question of "(album)" or not "(album)", I think more folks can unite around the beauty of avoiding parentheses. :) Best wishes, Xoloz (talk) 22:15, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

I didn't really answer your question, did I? You were asking whether I thought "NATURALDIS" was a good argument for a Move Review. Personally, I don't think so. Move Review is about whether a closure is proper, and is not a forum for rearguing matters from the orginal debate. Even though no one used your exact phrasing, the point of "NATURALDIS" was raised in the nomination and by Cuchullain. It wasn't what people chose to discuss for the most part (even though I wish they had.) However, there will be no hard feelings from me if you raise the point in the Move Review and people accept it. I'm a bit of a process wonk sometimes, but if you can garner consensus support for the argument, more power to you. So far, this issue has been a mess. Any approach that brings about final clarity is fine by me. Best wishes, Xoloz (talk) 22:30, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

I noticed your edits on the world maps... If Virginia is blue on the US map then it should probably also be blue on the homosexuality map. As for the Same-sex marriage map... I don't mind Virginia being yellow, but I think Colorado, Luxembourg, Scotland and Costa Rica qualify as yellow as well. --Prcc27 (talk) 18:08, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

I think jurisdictions could be colored yellow on the world same-sex marriage map before it goes into effect. Prcc★27 (talk) 21:14, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I want to see what happens with the US map first. Dralwik|Have a Chat 21:18, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
But the world ssm map is different. there is already a yellow color for "intention to legalize" that could easily be rendered "legalized or intent to legalize." Also, Virginia is already colored as blue on the US map so it should be blue on the homosexuality map as well. Prcc★27 (talk) 21:27, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I'd rather not change them to yellow yet. I know that's the opposite of what I'd like to see happen (which is ideally three colors for the US map: recognize marriage now, in process, ban, plus a civil union color for the world map), but consistency amongst the maps takes precedence for now imo. Will color Virginia though. Dralwik|Have a Chat 22:18, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Will do when I return. Dralwik|Have a Chat 20:40, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I hope I'm not bothering you when you're in the process of updating maps.. I noticed your update to the Worldwide laws regarding homosexual relationships and expression map and just want to mention that Scotland (not sure if they have civil unions currently, but they don't have marriage yet), Luxembourg, and Costa Rica need to be updated as well. Also, there are probably other regional maps (like the Europe map) that might need updating, as well as implementing a new plan for the world ssm map (which I already brought up at the talk)..?
Thank you, --Prcc★27 (talk) 04:23, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
(My deepest apologies, that was probably you reverting the map for the time being..) Prcc★27 (talk) 04:31, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
I see there's already a debate on the world homosexuality map; I'm hesitant to kick off Scotland/Luxembourg/Costa Rica with an objection raised. I realize that means the world map is treated differently than the US map, but I'm conflicted on whether to go ahead on the world maps. Dralwik|Have a Chat 20:28, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
But there's already a transition color on the world ssm map (and the wording can be altered a little bit). There's no objections to my proposal on the World ssm map so I think the transition color should be expanded to jurisdictions that legalized same-sex marriage.

SSM World Maps[edit]

Hey, I recently said "LA shouldn't have a marriage ring (same-sex marriage is legal there)." That was a typo; I meant same-sex marriage is not legal there. However, Louisiana should have a yellow dot on the World same-sex marriage map. (Also, the world same-sex marriage map needs MO to be green for recognition with a blue ring for rogue jurisdiction, and Arizona and Wyoming need a green ring). Why is Colorado and Florida not marked as blue..? I'm confused, if Scotland is blue on both maps then why not FL/CO? IMO FL, CO, Scot., etc. should be yellow on the world same-sex marriage map. As for the homosexual relations and expression map.. wouldn't they be blue..? If a temporary stay is akin to legalization on every other map/article, why not the world map..? (I'm a little confused). Otherwise, Florida needs a green ring too. Sorry for bothering you and sorry for the typo! :/

The maps are updated, although I left Florida stayed/intent to legalize for now. Given the rapid state of flux for same-sex marriage in the United States, three months is likely too long of a time for us to predict how a ruling will pan out. Right now, I lean towards taking a de facto approach to US states: if you can get a marriage license and the state isn't fighting anymore (like Colorado), then we can color it blue. I realize this means a different approach than Scotland and company, but I'm more comfortable with that then having a marriage blue Florida three months in advance. Light blue on the US map is OK by me since we have the footnote. Dralwik|Have a Chat 15:16, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

We need to discuss how we're going to have the same-sex marriage map for Florida. Currently, the map reflects the status of same-sex marriage before the federal court decision. If we want to have the map reflect Florida before it went into effect, we'd either have to color the whole state gold (with the exception of Miami-Dade), or add Washington County to one of the gold counties. What do you think? Prcc27 (talk) 09:04, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Just posted on your talk as you posted on mine. Dralwik|Have a Chat 09:06, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I feel like there should either be more counties colored gold or less counties colored that way in order to be consistent since some state court decisions dealt with individual cases only. Prcc27 (talk) 08:03, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Have you considered being a reviewer?[edit]

Hey, not too long ago I accepted one of your edits at the Same-sex marriage in the United States Wikipedia page. Have you ever considered becoming a WP:REVIEWER..? Prcc27 (talk) 09:26, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Not really, although I might look into it. I'm content staying at this level. Dralwik|Have a Chat 09:32, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Dralwik! As a Steward I'm involved in the upcoming unification of all accounts organized by the Wikimedia Foundation (see m:Single User Login finalisation announcement).

ISIS territory in Libya[edit]

When you re-added ISIS-controlled territory in Iraq, Syria, and Libya, you forgot to re-add the city of Derna in Libya, a city of over 100,000 people. I think this should be added, as this indicates that gay people are killed there. (talk) 00:57, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

What is the basis for moving the article on Komi Klassou? As far as I know that is the commonly used name. What makes you think the full name is more frequently used? Everyking (talk) 05:53, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

The number of Google News results, especially for the Togolese sources I could find. Dralwik|Have a Chat 12:40, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
