Template talk:LDS sects/Mormon fundamentalist[edit]

I know your busy, but if you get on at any time, I've been thinking of doing a modification of Template talk:LDS sects/Mormon fundamentalist. However it being such a big change, I though I would seek some input before making the change. If your interested in commenting, I would love to here from you at Template_talk:LDS_sects/Mormon_fundamentalist#Unweildy--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk) 21:53, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hope that helps. Good luck with that! - Ecjmartin (talk) 00:38, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Gordon B Hinckley[edit]

If you have the time, there is a NPOV question at the Gordon B Hinckley article.Mormography (talk) 00:59, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry--I'm really bogged down in a major book project at the moment. Thank you for your consideration, though. - Ecjmartin (talk) 03:11, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

From reading your comments on the articles's talk page, you may be interested in knowing that there has been another edit war recently over the information about Seraphim Rose's apparent early homosexual relationships. Afterwriting (talk) 07:25, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I've been busy with other projects, and haven't had as much time to "keep watch" on this page as I used to! I appreciate your bringing this to my attention, and also the efforts which you made yourself to keep that page neutral. I left a comment on the talk page for that article, and I'll be paying more attention to it in future. As a former Orthodox Christian who was once just like the person involved in this dispute (and just btw: many if not most Orthodox aren't like this person at all!), I know very intimately where that person is coming from—and I will do everything I can to fight his/her approach, in this or any article. Again, thanks for your efforts, and for letting me know about this. Cheers!! - Ecjmartin (talk) 00:12, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Finding constancy in naming of "Apostle" position[edit]

I have opened a discussion at List of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (LDS Church) in order to find some constancy in naming. Before I accidentally impose my personal view, it would nice to have a real consensus of proper naming of "Apostle". Any input by you, as a frequent Latter Day Saint articles would be nice.--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk)

Use/mention and the "Twenty Negro Law"[edit]

Hi, One of the reasons for my edit of the Twenty Negro Law lede was to fix a "use/mention" error. As WP:UMD discusses, article ledes should be cast to discuss the subject of an article, as opposed to the name of the subject of the article ("Frank Sinatra was a singer" versus "Frank Sinatra was the name of a singer").

Given that, I think it would be more appropriate to go back to "Legislation called the 'Twenty Negro Law' exempted slave overseers" instead of "'Twenty Negro Law' refers to legislation". Regards, NapoliRoma (talk) 07:04, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

No problem. Reverted it, with a couple of relatively minor changes. Take a look and tell me what you think. Cheers! - Ecjmartin (talk) 19:46, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Looks great -- thanks! --NapoliRoma (talk) 23:00, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank YOU! - Ecjmartin (talk) 01:58, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Battery "E", 1st Regiment Illinois Volunteer Light Artillery, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mugging (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:55, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
