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)

Maduro[edit]

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 98.252.50.93 (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)

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]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_talk:World_marriage-equality_laws.svg#Kentucky_Final_Order

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)
I'm fine with suggested edits; Kentucky is a rather confusing case with the reversions and I've mentioned it in the US map RFC. Dralwik|Have a Chat 03:22, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

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)

Oh, a circle on the civil union color. I wish the Supreme Court would hurry up and make the entire US dark blue already. Besides all the real world benefits and progress, it'll also make these maps easier to maintain. Dralwik|Have a Chat 02:19, 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)

White Album[edit]

OK, I noticed that anyone who opposes the move of The Beatles (album) to "The White Album", you're either going on their talk pages or on the move discussion, and you're trying to persuade people to go towards your opinion to get the article moved. Look, that's not how things work around here, and you're not going to persuade me any differently. Granted, politics may be prevalent in other aspects of life, but Wikipedia tries to keep things in a neutral POV. At this point, because several people oppose the move--and it's by consensus, not plurality like merger proposals--you're fighting a losing battle at this point. Thanks! Jgera5 (talk) 17:38, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Responded at your talk, but I'll put the reply here for completeness:
There's been a misunderstanding. To quote WP:RM/CM: "Note: Unlike certain other request processes on Wikipedia, nominations should not be neutral... Nominators may also participate in the discussion along with everyone else, and often should." As well, I brought up the warning right above this since move request discussions should "make reference to applicable policies and guidelines," and Wikipedia policy is pretty dismissive of the official name argument. Besides discussions not being a simple vote but rather based on which side's arguments win out, I have seen nominations (like the Chelsea Manning mess) be decided after a significant portion of votes were thrown out for specifically not referencing policy. I apologize if I seemed aggressive, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of policy's stance on the official name argument. Dralwik|Have a Chat 18:18, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

White Album, part 2[edit]

I closed your discussion on the move of The Beatles (album) to The White Album on a no consensus. While I do agree with some people that you were pestering those that opposed your viewpoint and your [valid] rebuttal that it is within Wikipedia guidelines, I closed it simply because a page move requires a consensus, not a plurality vote. Just letting you know. Thanks! Jgera5 (talk) 17:04, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

WP:RMCI states "No user, whether an administrator or otherwise, should ever close an unwithdrawn requested move discussion in which they supported or opposed, and in which the result of discussion is not a unanimous result." Dralwik|Have a Chat 17:09, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
OK, how was I involved? I put an oppose vote and otherwise left the discussion. I haven't even edited on the main article in years--I added the piece on the bootlegged "Revolution 1 (Take 20)" when it first surfaced--and when I saw the move discussion it caught my eye. Look, it's not like it matters, you lost the move discussion because there was no consensus. Just let it go at this point. That's the last thing I'm commenting on the matter. Thanks! Jgera5 (talk) 17:14, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
Also from WP:RMCI: "Consensus is determined not just by considering the preferences of the participants in a given discussion, but also by evaluating their arguments, assigning due weight accordingly, and giving due consideration to the relevant consensus of the Wikipedia community in general as reflected in applicable policy, guidelines and naming conventions."

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)
