Hello to all fellow Wikipedians. GoodDay 22:40, 17 November 2005 (UTC).

Noia 64 apps karm.svg This user has been on Wikipedia for 11 years and 17 days.

You may be wondering why my archives only start at August 2007. The reason: I didn't archive my pages before that date, I merely deleted them (as I didn't know how to archive). Therefore, if anyone wishes to see material before August 2007? check out this talkpage's 'history'.


I've an Awards page, where I keep a list of Wikipedia awards bestowed upon me.

My Arbcom Case[edit]


Richard von Weizsäcker[edit]

Good day to you! I have reverted your edits on Richard von Weizsäcker. I had previously conciously changed the information in the infobox to President of the Federal Republic of Germany because it is the most precise way to formulate it. Everything else makes it appear as if he held two different offices, which he did not. Also, it would imply that West Germany and the Federal Republic today are different states, which they are not by international law. There is a footnote on this issue for exactly this reason. Just wanted to explain that. Cheers! Zwerg Nase (talk) 19:57, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

I disagree with the revert, as East Germany & West Germany merged to become Germany in 1990. Anyways, I won't be pushing the matter any further. GoodDay (talk) 19:59, 17 November 2016 (UTC)
They did not. That is the whole point. The Federal Republic of Germany (West) annexed the East. Yes, we call it reunification, but the East just joined the existing West Germany and accepted the political system that came with it. Including the president, who was not even re-elected after the fact. He just stayed in office, because it was the very same office. Zwerg Nase (talk) 20:58, 17 November 2016 (UTC)
We shall have to disagree. GoodDay (talk) 21:00, 17 November 2016 (UTC)
You disagree with me on historical facts about my home country? Interesting... Zwerg Nase (talk) 23:06, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Nikki Haley[edit]

I'd like to bring to your attention this edit you made to List of Governors of South Carolina regarding the ethnicity of Nikki Haley. You changed "Indian American" to "Native American", which is incorrect. Haley's parents are from India, which makes her an Indian American. She has no Native American ancestry to my knowledge. MB298 (talk) 23:02, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Ok, I thought she was Native American & American media was calling Indian American as Natives in the USA are often called Indians. No prob. GoodDay (talk) 23:47, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Revert dispute[edit]

Hi GoodDay. I felt compelled to report the user Drdpw since he violated 3RR within a 24-hour period. I do realise my own behaviour will also be scrutinised but since I was the one trying to restore the previous layout (per WP:STATUSQUO) the second time (the first restoring the original alignment, that was tweaked by Drdpw without prior consensus), I doubt there will be much focus on my edits, which have been conciliatory for well over the last 24 hrs.--Nevéselbert 22:18, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

IMHO, those numberings should be removed from the Living Presidents of the United States. -- GoodDay (talk) 22:23, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Request for feedback[edit]

You have recently contributed to the discussion at talk:Living Presidents of the United States about changes I have made. I initiated that discussion and have tried to drive it to consensus, in the process making more recent talk page edits than the other editors combined. For your participation in that discussion, I thank you. I am, however, wondering about my participation in that discussion.

  • Have I been pushing my own ideas too much?
  • Have I ignored those with opinions different from mine?
  • Can you think of any way my talk page involvement could have been improved?

You may answer me here, on my talk page, or by e-mail. Thank you for your desire to improve this online encyclopedia! YBG (talk) 05:04, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Being bold is encouraged on Wikipedia, as the project is ever evolving. Don't ever be reluctant to push for changes. GoodDay (talk) 05:06, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

2020 Democratic National Convention listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect 2020 Democratic National Convention. Since you had some involvement with the 2020 Democratic National Convention redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. - CHAMPION (talk) (contributions) (logs) 22:46, 29 November 2016 (UTC)


Ok, thanks! --Jerus82 (talk) 16:48, 1 December 2016 (UTC)


Well,well,well. It looks like we were right about the succession one way or another. Even Andrew MacGregor Marshall, someone with more insight into the Thai situation that most of us, was right to call out that there are no constitutional provisions for a vacant throne. This whole thing was a circus. On the bright side, Thailand is now closer to becoming a republic with this militaristic, capricious and unpopular buffoon with no viable successors. --Killuminator (talk) 01:04, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Haha, Rama X very well might be Rama the last. GoodDay (talk) 01:12, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Oh boy, one user is stubborn., a fan fluff site with no sources is more reliable to him than Thai law and media sources. --Killuminator (talk) 22:33, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
