Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge with elephants[edit]

I went back and rewrote the bit about the elephant test, and included a cite from Eads Bridge while I was at it. Please check this out and let me know if you feel there's a problem. Or feel free to revert me or modify, as usual. - Denimadept (talk) 07:24, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

@Denimadept: I don't see any problem with that, no. I've just tweaked it to include the 112,000 pound figure, which is both important to note and quite interesting. Glad someone took the time to put that section back in. :) I'd've done it myself when I removed the copyvio content, but what can I say, I'm lazy. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 16:22, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

SFWA[edit]

Today I did much work at Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, primarily to complete, link, recover, unify existing references. Along the way I tagged for {citation needed} and {clarify} your July 6 update under bold heading SFWA Board Members.

By the way, do you know whether the officer terms begin in May? --when the bylaws were revised in 2014, i see [1]. If so, we should say in the lead "president of SFWA from May 2015 is Cat Rambo".

Speedy deletion nomination of User talk:Amersandhu[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User talk:Amersandhu, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Cahk (talk) 07:08, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

CE vs. AD[edit]

I see that you are changing time format on Christian "legend" articles from BC/AD to BCE/CE, Wikipedia is written in a neutral prospective, not in an atheist prospective, and BC/AD is still the standard time format. - ZLEA (Talk,Contribs) 16:46, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@ZLEA: I assume you're referring to my edits to Genesis flood narrative. First of all, if you're not aware, Wikipedia has an editorial guideline on AD/BC vs. CE/BCE: MOS:ERA. Per that guideline, the era notation may be changed if there is a reason specific to the article's content and consensus has been sought on the article's talk page. This gets us to two important points of fact: 1) Genesis is not a Christian myth; it is a Jewish one. Yes, it is part of the Christian canon, but it is also part of the Muslim, Baha'i, Rastafari, Druze, Yazidi, etc. canons. It is first and foremost a Jewish myth. 2) CE/BCE is not an "atheist" notation. It is a coëqual alternative to AD/BC under Wikipedia guidelines. And the general practice on Wikipedia is that, when discussing articles relating to religions other than Christianity, we use CE/BCE. See Muhammad, Buddha, Moses, Taoism, etc.
I met both of the guideline's requirements: I made an argument for why changing the era made more sense, and I left it open for discussion for three months, during which time no one objected. (I actually was planning on proceeding after a month, but didn't get around to it until January.) If you want to revive that discussion, you're welcome to do so at the talk page. But I would encourage you to read the relevant guidelines first, and to stop viewing this as a matter of identity politics. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 17:46, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: Dr. Stavrula Perutsea Gotsis, MD[edit]

Hello PinkAmpersand. I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of Dr. Stavrula Perutsea Gotsis, MD, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Subject might be important/significant (see also Google News/Books hits for this subject) / use WP:PROD or WP:AFD instead to allow other editors to participate in this decision. Thank you. SoWhy 08:12, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Follow the Wikimedia LGBT user group on Twitter at @wikilgbt for news, photos, and other topics of interest to LGBT Wikipedans and allies. Use #wikiLGBT to share any Wiki Loves Pride stuff that you would like to share (whether this month or any day of the year) or to alert folks to things that the LGBT Wikipedan community should know.

edits[edit]

hello. You got it backward. Provably so. If someone is lying saying something is "duplicated" elsewhere in the article when there's literally NO mention anywhere else in the article the name "Terminate the Republicans" it's hard to "assume goo faith" when it's obvious that that's NOT what's really going on here. But more like suppression of sourced facts, per lefty agendas maybe (??) against WP policy. This is ALL OVER THE NEWS, on TV and on the Net. What's valid argument ot remove it?? And no, the only ones truly "edit-warring" and violating WP policy are the suppressors that I'm undoing, and what's to "assume good faith" when they're flat-out LYING when they say "duplicate" when that's simply not true. This is a wiki. No one person owns any article, and no "opinion" is needed to include the sources fact that this perp was part of that FB club. Anyway, I'm not edit-warring, I'm restoring sourced referenced facts THAT EDIT-WARRIORS AND SUPPRESSORS KEEP IDIOTICALLY REMOVING, with literally zero sound argument or rationale for it. There's no mention of this sourced fact anywhere in the article. What is going on now is just SUPPRESSION OF FACTS that you don't like to be revealed. He was part of a FB club called "Terminate the Republicans". Nowhere is that mentioned. Restored. Namarly (talk) 16:41, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

@Namarly: I would strongly encourage you to read the following pages WP:Assume good faith, WP:Civility, WP:Wikipedia is not a battleground, and WP:Edit warring. Currently, you're probably going to be blocked for several days over second-offense edit warring. (It doesn't matter if they're edit warring too; two wrongs don't make a right, and the edit warring policy, which I hope you read the last time you were blocked under it, makes this very clear.) However, if you continue to show a battleground mentality and accuse other editors of misconduct without evidence, you will probably find yourself blocked indefinitely. I wouldn't want to see that happen, and that's why I'm encouraging you to read the pages I've just linked to. If you don't think you'll be able to comply with these guidelines, then I'd politely suggest that perhaps this isn't the site for you. — PinkAmpers&(Je vous invite à me parler) 17:21, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Yes, my talkpage has several complaints about my adherence to our MOS. Be a pal and figure out how many of my edits are to capitalization issues (it's a lot), then show the complaints on my TP as a % of those edits. It may cause you to re-evaluate how clever you think you are. Point taken re:Capitol Police, but to say that representatives is a "shared title" and not descriptive is off the mark. There is no title of "Representatives", only "Representative". This is not a shared title because they all represent different things. Further, the does not suddenly make common nouns proper. The Alexandria Police Department is a specific department and is thus capped. The Alexandria police are the police in Alexandria and if that ain't descriptive...well...
