July 2012[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Please do not replace pages with blank content, as you did with this edit to Talk:Douglas Robinson, as this is confusing to readers. The page's content has been restored for now. If there is a problem with the page, it should be edited or reverted to a previous version if possible; if you think the page should be removed entirely, see further information. Thank you. JamesBWatson (talk) 09:00, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Excuse confusion, that talk page should no longer redirect. Removed redirect code, and replaced with project disambiguation template. Hong12kong (talk) 10:57, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Masculinism[edit]

Wikipedia doesn't like WP:EDITWAR and since you have been revert by several editors, you need to stop reverting against multiple editors and go to the talkpage to discuss your edits. Also, have you read the article cited? Are you sure that you are correct in your facts? Because this summary of the research suggests that your reverts are in fact incorrect, and that preschool boys are given more freedom in the classroom with regard to noise, activity, Unless you have some other evidence to counter I would suggest that you revert your edit.Slp1 (talk) 01:05, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I see that you had already started discussing on the talkpage while I was posting this. So, you can ignore that part of the message. But you still likely need to revert back, since based on the article and the summary I point to, the original version was actually correct. Note that the section is in the "criticism" section --Slp1 (talk) 01:10, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Yes, Kevin Gorman already reverted the passage back--but note that "the original version" was the one I was reverting to, in the (mistaken) belief that it was correct! As I explained on the Masculism talk page, I was defending the coherence of the WP article, but without actually reading the source. Once I read the source, I realized that the original version was wrong--wrong, that is, as a paraphrase of the source--and I was wrong to defend it. If the source is accurately paraphrased, then the entire paragraph becomes inappropriate for the Masculism entry, and should be cut. Hong12kong (talk) 08:49, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for this and your other note. Just to clarify one thing. If you check the history, you'll see that the longstanding "original (and accurate) version" is what it says now. It was changed by an IP yesterday [1], and you twice reverted back to this incorrect formulation.
The whole thing is a good example of the need to check the sources before restoring information, even what seems like vandalism at times. Editors are held responsible the content of their edits even when they are reverting others. Please don't worry about though; it is an easy mistake to make fairly early in one's wiki career!! Slp1 (talk) 12:13, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Okay thanks! (I could have sworn I'd seen the paragraph the way I was reverting it back to, a week or two ago, when I was first working on the page ...) Hong12kong (talk)
