Rule of Three[edit]

As to why we don't list every single synonym for feces, it'd be too many. These are almost certainly the top three, covering the spectrum of social usage, from quite polite ("excrement") to less polite ("poop") to not polite ("shit"). I assume every reader typically calls it one of those. "Droppings", "dookie" or (worst) "mung" are, while common enough, for niche audiences, I think. InedibleHulk (talk) 22:36, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

If you'd like to replace "poop" with "poo", that seems the more common term to me (and has an extra 5 million alleged Google results). But it's such a small preference that I don't want to if you don't want to. InedibleHulk (talk) 22:39, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
I've reverted your parentheticals, left the "poo". Not standard, and if it's based on the last message, you've misunderstood it. The levels of politeness don't translate to scientists, children and the vulgus. Those three groups use all three words in different circumstances. The Wikilinks make it clear enough which ones.

Glad to see you're still around![edit]

Frohes Neues!

I just noticed your username on my watchlist, so I'm really glad to see that you're still around and editing. Best wishes for 2017!

Thank you Sir[edit]

Proposed deletion of List of water supply and sanitation by country[edit]


The article List of water supply and sanitation by country has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This page is better off as a category or a navbox, which I have created at {{Water supply and sanitation by country}}. The other sections are also already used as {{Latin America and the Caribbean topic}}. There is no foreseeable use for this page other than being a collection of links.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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.

WikiProject Water removal from Water Resource regions[edit]

Hi there, I saw you removed {{WikiProject Water}} from Alaska water resource region and Arkansas–White–Red water resource region based on a scope change. However even if {{WikiProject Water}} is now mainly about water sanitation, I believe these water resource region datasets are used for watershed management (including sanitation and human water use) in the US. Here's a couple links on the topic of this data [1] and [2]. -Furicorn (talk) 04:11, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, Furicorn. Please copy it to here: because this is where we are currently discussing the tags. My view of the new WikiProject Water tag (soon to be renamed to WikiProject Sanitation and water) is a quite narrow one, as otherwise any river, watershed etc. would be part of this project, whereas there are other wikiprojects dealing with that.

Ok, I've added my comment there. By the way, thanks for creating/helping create Urine-diverting dry toilet, I've definitely used that article for reference before. -Furicorn (talk) 07:25, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
