Disambiguation link notification for June 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mirage Records, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages The System and Shannon (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.

A Page Forever Editing[edit]

Rose_Venkatesan seems to always edit conflict. I'm not enough of a wikipedian to fix that. Hoping you'll take a look.

It seems as though two of your edits were successful. Did you achieve all the changes you wanted to make? The article isn't locked, so it should be available to edit again. Let me know if you continue to have problems. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 00:49, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I do not know anything about him. Offhand, I'd say that the first step will be finding articles about him. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 03:21, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Transphobic 'include dead name' movement[edit]

Could you poke your nose into Rose Venkatesan please?

An editor's been going around adding dead names. Someone's been pulling them, using a sockpuppet (not me). I've pulled a few, as well, but it needs a new policy, really, and again I'm not willing to become an experienced wikipedia editor just to prevent this site from harassing my friends.

Thanks Anniepoo (talk) 22:58, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi. It looks like a Wikipedia admin has already taken measures to prevent this abuse, temporarily locking down the article. I'll put it on my watchlist, just in case. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 06:10, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
Follow-up thoughts: Since the lock expires after a week, consensus and civility will need to be achieved sooner rather than later. With that in mind, I took a look at how we achieved this in the past. It looks like the MOS:IDENTITY guideline has been altered since we last visited this issue back in 2008. As it is currently worded, it does not come right out and restrict the use of dead names. Even so, I think that is a reasonable application of the guideline. I'm not sure why they took out the specific language pertaining to names (as opposed to just pronouns). I suspect perhaps that recent media events may have precipitated this. It's a weaker, less clear guideline as it stands now, but the spirit is still there. Moreover, I would think that the presumption in favor of privacy should be enough to rule out the use of the dead name in this case. And that's actual policy, not just a guideline. It applies to the cisgendered as well as the transgendered (cf. Devin K. Grayson). I think I will drop a note of my opinion on the article's talk page. --GentlemanGhost (converse) 07:07, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
Happening again:

Could you poke your nose into Rose Venkatesan again? persistant dead-name adder has reappeared. thanks --Anniepoo (talk) 17:54, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:53, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Re: Defries or DeFries[edit]

Hello, I looked at the LinkedIn profile you provided and it does indeed look like Defries prefers the less-capitalised variant of his name. Thanks for having spent time looking into this, I had originally just read a biography and went on Wikipedia thinking his name was presented incorrectly.
