I must confess that I am mostly inept at social communications and may not understand "nuances of a conversation", quote by Magog the Ogre. I am mentored by those below. Please be cautious before posting messages to me.

"Unilaterally opposed"[edit]

Thank you for your work on the ITN page. I thought I might mention that I believe you are inadvertently misusing the word "unilaterally." A "unilateral" decision is one made by just one person or just one side of an argument. In this context, when you post "Unilaterally opposed," that could be misread to mean that you, by yourself, are closing the discussion because you oppose. If what you mean is that everyone has opposed, then a better wording would be "Unanimously opposed" or "Uniformly opposed". (Although even that would probably be wrong as the proposer probably wouldn't oppose, so the more conventional wording "No consensus to post" might be better still.)

RfC: Jimi Hendrix[edit]

Hi! Would you care to comment at this RfC regarding the article Jimi Hendrix? It is about whether "acid rock" belongs in the infobox or not. Dan56 (talk) 22:23, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

ITN for Saud bin Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud[edit]

--SpencerT♦C 12:31, 11 July 2015 (UTC)


Do not insert your signature, inside others posts - it is not good form, and very confusing.

Also on western australian railway articles, you have inserted inside block socks posts.

Please do separate posts, so that your signature is outside of the blocked socks posts.

Thank you. JarrahTree 10:47, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Well so much for reminding, the bot is dumb and should be re-designed to put the rm sig outside, it needs changing JarrahTree 23:29, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Brad Carter (actor)[edit]

Hello George! I saw you doing some corrections on Brad Carter (actor). Can you please do a little more copy-edit and a rewrite where I used bad wordings? And after you are done with that please inform the copy-edit at Template:Did you know nominations/Brad Carter (actor). Thanks. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 13:07, 18 July 2015 (UTC)


I think the consensus is clear that it should be Intelius. I was the one that questioned the move, but we've pretty much figured out what happened: inome filed a dba that basically undid their rename, so inome and Intelius are the same company. No one is contesting this. The only bit missing is exactly when the dba was filed, but we know it was within the past year from what sources we have. --Ronz (talk) 16:26, 21 July 2015 (UTC)


I'm sorry I didn't respond, real life is exploding and I've got some wiki harassment. I can't close anything because I'm not an admin AFAIK. I'm just a wikignome (despite years and years of service) and I never had a mentor, so if that is incorrect, let me know and I'll look into the procedure. Ogress smash! 01:41, 22 July 2015 (UTC)


What bot could possibly require someone to stick a comment in the middle of someone else's comment? Primefac (talk) 14:26, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

See WP:RM. And also User:RM bot. --George Ho (talk) 14:26, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. I guess I've just never seen a move proposal relisted. Primefac (talk) 14:35, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Edward Ryan relist[edit]

Please undo your relist at Talk:Edward Ryan (disambiguation). There is no opposition to the move and there is clear agreement for what the disambiguation will be. Adding another week is pointless. Jenks24 (talk) 16:51, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

One guy said "lawyer"; other said "barrister". We can't just supervote and close. --George Ho (talk) 16:54, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
He said lawyer before the relevant convention was pointed out and saying it "would be fine" is noncommittal. In addition, there are three users supporting barrister. To say moving it to barrister would be a supervote is borderline ridiculous. Please undo the relist. Jenks24 (talk) 17:03, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
Counting you would be unfair to the results. How about one "lawyer" and two "barrister"? To me, more votes are needed. Two over one? George Ho (talk) 17:06, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
How on earth is counting me, one of the participants in the discussion, unfair? The opinion of the nominator is just as valid as anyone else. Please undo the relist. Jenks24 (talk) 17:09, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
I can't do that. I have standards, okay? --George Ho (talk) 20:41, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

1st Indian Cavalry Brigade[edit]

George, I requested a move of 1st Indian Cavalry Brigade to 1st (Risalpur) Cavalry Brigade. I see that you have "relisted" it. Am I right in thinking that this pushes the request back a week? Hamish59 (talk) 14:52, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

The bot relisted it to another week, but be patient. There should be votes. --George Ho (talk) 22:25, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation: I did not realise a bot was at work. With regard to votes, can I assume that if no one objects, then it will be moved? Hamish59 (talk) 08:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

ANI notice for Russian Winter RFC[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. —Lowellian (reply) 18:24, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

George, you're not in a position to be telling other editors to "beware" if they don't follow your instructions, nor to threaten to remove other editors' comments. Don't do that anymore. --Floquenbeam (talk) 19:22, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

And George, RFCs are supposed to be neutrally worded. All the best, Miniapolis 21:52, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

No false claims, please[edit]

When you propose an RM, please do not base on it patently false claims, like you did at The White Shadow by claiming that the TV series is "not more primary" than the film, despite the series having 8 times as many page views. --В²C 00:30, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

RfC Closure on Draft:Psychology of eating meat : Reasoning?[edit]

Hey George, I just wanted to ask, and clarify, that the Procedural Closure was because of the {{submit}} template? Also, if that is the case, you may want to actually extend the comments included down to's comment on the template being the proper procedure. Thanks and I hope your exams go well, Dr Crazy 102 (talk) 08:02, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, George! I didn't realize {{submit}} was permissible when publication was potentially contentious. There does seem to be a glitch in the closure template, but it's not a big deal. FourViolas (talk) 10:12, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

2015 Thalys attack[edit]

I've restored the image to the infobox. Couldn't undo your edit due to subsequent edits. I note your edit summary of "not appropriate as infobox img". I don't see why this image is not appropriate. It shows a Thalys train, of the type involved in the event. The image is a good quality image. Happy to discuss alternative images at talk:2015 Thalys attack.
