Replaceable fair use File:Caroline Kennedy, 1991 In Our Defense interview.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Caroline Kennedy, 1991 In Our Defense interview.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 23:59, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Yolanda King, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages JAG, St. Mary's Medical Center and Walt Roberts (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.

Non-free rationale for File:Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King wedding day, 1953.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Martin Luther and Coretta Scott King wedding day, 1953.png. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Dexter Scott King 1968.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Dexter Scott King 1968.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. January (talk) 16:20, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Sorry about all the notices, but non-free content should only be used where no free alternative exists or could be created and your uploads suggest you weren't aware of this. I would recommend familiarising yourself with WP:NFC before uploading any more non-free content, particularly points 1 and 8 of WP:NFCCP. January (talk) 16:34, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

I noticed when I was replying to you at File talk:Coretta Scott King 1958.png that your signature was missing a </font> after it, which caused any text posted below your signature to appear in red (my reply came out red when I previewed it until I added this myself). If this is a custom signature in your preferences, I think adding </font> at the end should fix it. January (talk) 22:43, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Dexter Scott King 1968.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Dexter Scott King 1968.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged.

Replaceable fair use File:Yolanda King Human Rights Campaign, 2000.png[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Yolanda King Human Rights Campaign, 2000.png. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.

Thanks for uploading File:Degrassi J.T. Yorke.png. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

copyvios[edit]

Hello - I've noticed that some of your edits appear to be cut-and-paste with minor changes from non-free sources, like The New York Times. For example this edit contains word-for-word copy from this source with a few word changes. In fact the relevant information was already in the article, with that source, without a copyvio. Please take a look at WP:COPYPASTE for more information. This kind of addition can be considered plagiarism and is not allowed - it's also not really necessary to include small details that aren't notable to her life in her biography. I've corrected some of the copyvios that I noticed, but if you know of others, please remove them. Thanks. Tvoz/talk 15:19, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Aaliyah's Header Image[edit]

I don't understand why you changed Aaliyah's image to that filtered low quality one. The image I used was HIGH Definition and the photographer Eric Johnson even released those HD pics of Aaliyah on his website to the public so there was no need to delete it. It wasn't "colored", it was high definition. I have all of the links http://www.loeildelaphotographie.com/2014/01/16/portfolio/23963/eric-johnson-aaliyah-by-miss-rosen --Datyger (talk) 09:16, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

From the way it appeared to me, the image was a variation of what I believed was the original coloring, that of the one I uploaded. Now that you've confirmed that the image was high definition and not some mere minor variation that you found, I apologize. I need you to understand that I was unaware of this and believed I was using the more common, original image. Whatever I can do to make it up, let me know. Informant16 24 August 2014

Speedy deletion nomination of Karrueche Tran[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 Karrueche Tran requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

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 "Click here to 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, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. TheLongTone (talk) 22:41, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of Karrueche Tran for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Karrueche Tran is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Karrueche Tran until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

copyvios again[edit]

Please see above section "copyvios" from last year regarding Wikipedia policy about cut-and-paste additions to article text. I again found numerous instances in Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that are almost word for word lifts from the original source - in this case I was looking something up in Leaming 2014 and came across these. I don't have the time or inclination to go over the many additions you've made, and am concerned that there may be more such violations. Please go back over your edits in this article and others and remove or change the wording - this can be considered plagiarism and it is not allowed. And please take care with future additions to not do this. See WP:COPYPASTE for more information. I'm also posting this on the article talk page, and we can discuss it there if you wish. Thank you. Tvoz/talk 09:57, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

What additions are you referring to? I've gone out of my way to change it. Informant16 2 November 2015
The problem is that in many places the article text that was cited to the Leaming (2014) book, for example, used the exact words - or too close paraphrases of the original. Even though you did put citations for all of them, Wiki policy requires that we write our articles in our own words, not in the words of the source article, in this case Leaming's words. We are supposed to summarize what we are taking from sources, in our own words. This is my edit, some of which were copyvios, or close paraphrases. Also some are just trivial details that aren't adding anything significant and by including in the article gives the appearance of more importance than is reasonable.
So, one example is as follows - this is way too close, barely even paraphrasing. There are others that I either rewrote or just removed. I don't have time to check every source - it's the responsibility of the editor who is writing to make sure this doesn't happen. There also is a major question about whether a detail that might be appropriate for a book length biography is appropriate to include in a biographical article that has to cover a subject's entire life, and should include only things that are significant, so that we can keep the piece to a reasonable size.

I don't get it. You come to me with this and I credit it for seeming legitimate, but then the page gets slapped with a disclaimer that its content only interest a particular group? This is my difficulty that I've been having a hard time understanding since last year. The same thing happened over at the John F. Kennedy, Jr. page, but nowhere else. What is with this monopoly on the immediate Kennedy family pages? I don't get it. Informant16 2 November 2015
Ok - I didn't put the banners on the page, as I thought I would start out by talking with you here and posting on the article talk page since potentially anyone editing there may have inadvertently contributed to the problem. But the banners are really not out of line, in my view, and are supposed to serve as a reminder that there are some issues on the page, and hope to attract people who are willing to put in a little time to look into it and correct it. There are two different matters: one is strictly a matter of form, as I've outlined here - we need to be super careful not to copy/paste or "close paraphrase" from sources. The second banner is about the issue of details - as I said elsewhere, this is more subjective than copyvio issues which are straightforward. We have to think when we add material whether it has significance to the subject's life or if it's just an interesting but ultimately insignificant detail, lest our article start to sound like a gossip piece or just be a collection of sourced trivia. As for other Kennedy-related pages, I haven't been over to John Jr's page recently, but I assure you any concerns over trivial detail goes well beyond Kennedy family pages - it is a concern everywhere.Tvoz/talk 03:39, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
It just seems as if nothing I do is good enough to avoid these types of charges. I don't know why I should even bother since it just keeps popping up. I tried to change the information. I don't know what else I can do besides that. Informant16 3 November 2015
THey're not charges, and it's not meant to be personal. I know you put a lot of effort into editing, and it's appreciated. Avoiding plagiarism is essential -if you flag any questionable segments, I'll help with rewrite. Your call. Tvoz/talk 05:40, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
I just really want you to know that I don't try to do it and I've been trying to avoid it ever since then. I'm in no way trying to steal material from any sources. Informant16 3 November 2015
I don't doubt that, and I know it's sometimes difficult to avoid - if you flag any, or note on my talk page, I'll see if I can recast in different words. Tvoz/talk 20:48, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Following my comments on the Jackie Kennedy talk page, I would respectfully suggest it would behoove you to take part (with some other editors') in bringing an article up to GA status for the experience and/or consider seeking an experienced editor to mentor you for a time. It is nothing personal. Kierzek (talk) 14:27, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

Edit warring on Heidi Cruz[edit]

Informant, please stop edit warring over that awful cropped photograph. You may discuss the issue on the talk page--but that image is so awful that placing it in the article almost amounts to a BLP violation. Drmies (talk) 15:32, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

We have no other picture of her apart from the same one that is not cropped, where she is with her husband. I'm violating a rule by using a picture of the person the article is about, because somebody thought it looked bad? From what I recall, Wikipedia is supposed to a source with neutrality. Would it not appear that by expressing our views on an image, we are therefore violating that concept? Informant16 25 March 2016
We make editorial judgments all the time about which photo is best in a particular place, and sometimes that means using a photo that includes more than the subject of the article, or even none at all. Jonathunder (talk) 15:55, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
If that's the case and the consensus has been reached then I'll comply. I just have a hard time understanding how I'll get blocked for adding a picture without prior knowledge that there was an issue with it being used. Informant16 25 March 2016
I don't think you'll be blocked for your opinion about which image to use, but edit warring about it would lead in that direction. I'm glad to hear you don't intend to do that. Jonathunder (talk) 16:00, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
It's the edit warring part, and you did not participate in talk page discussion nor explain your change in a summary. On a high-volatility article covered by two sets of discretionary sanctions. In addition, there's this edit, reverted by Meatsgains, which you reverted without commentary here (1R), though you then removed it here while changing the picture but then you reinstated it here again, which was reverted by JohahThunder here, whom you reverted here (2R). Drmies (talk) 16:10, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
That was a discussion I was not aware of nor checked for, because I was under the impression that there was no issue with my editing or that only a single user had conflict with my contributions. Informant16 25 March 2016

Don't get discouraged[edit]

Hi Informant16. Just my two cents worth, but I think you should not get discouraged.

Best regards. Dr. K. 01:57, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

I thought so too at one point. Just feels as if 95% of what I do isn't wanted. Thank you for the compliment. Informant16 3 April 2016
You are very welcome. I think the 95% estimate is way too high and you shouldn't think so negatively of your contributions. Discussion and patience may be needed but I don't think any problems are insurmountable. Take care. Dr. K. 02:24, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
That's the thing. I didn't think badly about them at all until I received feedback. I was under the belief that I was contributing but the consensus is that my edits are anything but good.

June 2016[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Snuggums (talk / edits) 04:22, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

I was unaware of the three revert strike rule and that giving actual information was a crime. I apologize for being productive. I will try to be less productive in the future. -Informant16 13 June 2016
Being productive isn't the problem; my concern is making so many reverts in quick succession without discussing the matter beforehand. Snuggums (talk / edits) 04:32, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
But being productive is the problem. When I didn't add anything I didn't have these issues. Furthermore, my edits were reverted in quick succession by two different users who did not get this message. It appears to me that I'm being singled out for having written the disputed material, which was productive and thus has caused for that message to appear here. Informant16 13 June 2016
It's not so much about productivity...(what's the definition of that, anyway?), as we are not in a hurry to get anywhere fast. This is a long standing article, and for any big changes to be implemented it would be wise to first get a consensus on the talk-page. Cheers and happy editing. Lectonar (talk) 09:18, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Nora Dannehy[edit]

I assume that your behavior at Nora Dannehy is some kind of retaliation over me reverting you at Sarah Palin and not a serious attempt to improve Wikipedia. If not you should seriously rethink your definition of the word "trivia" as the outcome of an investigation that she lead is not trivia. In any event, you should be aware that WP:HOUNDING is frowned upon. Bonewah (talk) 16:36, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

My behavior at an article where I argued against what you had posted was not a serious attempt? Funny. I thought the same of your continued reverting of my edits to the Palin article. You did it about five or six times before I realized you believe that adding actual is a crime. I didn't think it was serious, as anything I posted was removed for the most part. I would almost call it WP:HOUNDING. Informant16 27 June 2016

July 2016[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Marilyn Monroe. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Sundayclose (talk) 23:12, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Presidential timeline work update[edit]

Hi Informant16, I'm wondering, what's your plan for working on the presidential timelines? Is there anything I can do now or in the future to make it easier for you to work on the timelines? What's your vision? Ethanbas (talk) 21:29, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

I started editing on Bush first so I'm going to finish that before I seriously pursue the others. Are you planning on making one for every president? Informant16 27 February 2017
I think so, but I'm taking it slow. I think that for older presidents, the timelines can be shorter than modern timelines like the Bush/Obama/Trump timelines. If you look at the timelines I've been creating for presidents like Coolidge, Hoover, FDR, Eisenhower, etc., you'll see I generally populate them with a few major events, and try to make sure each year has at least two events when I create it. I generally put down major events, stuff like Pearl Harbor, Black Thursday, etc. I don't think it's *necessary* for the older timelines to be super detailed in order for them to be useful to readers; besides, detailed timelines for 40 presidents seems unachievable for this year, or at least very hard. I've been trying to recruit other editors to work on the timelines, to no avail. Oh well; like I said, I think a limited timeline, say with less than 30 events, can still be useful, as long as the really major events are included and the writing is good. Ethanbas (talk) 05:36, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Maybe I should AfD one of my timelines so that people will come and work on it? :P Ethanbas (talk) 05:40, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Actually, I think after I publish Wilson timeline, I won't create other timelines. Maybe I'll do Teddy Roosevelt. But in general, it's too much work, and not enough value. I might be interested in creating timelines of foreign governments though! Ethanbas (talk) 04:00, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
I agree. I'm trying to go backwards from Bush after it gets completed and it still isn't even halfway done. I was wondering what you would think of timelines on certain senators' careers. Informant16 3 March 2017
We'd have to fight on the precedent for writing a timeline on a senator's career. I think making say, a timeline of the premiership of Gorbachev has more precedent (because of US presidential timelines), and would probably survive an AfD, and also be higher value than a senator's career. Ethanbas (talk) 21:08, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
I get what you're saying. I'm starting to lose motivation for the timeline though. Informant16 3 March 2017
Work on whatever your heart desires :) Ethanbas (talk) 08:04, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

How do you write the presidential timelines?[edit]

For example, I'm wondering where you come up with all the really old newspaper citations. In https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_presidency_of_Lyndon_B._Johnson, where did you get all the Chicago Tribune stuff? But also, I'm wondering where you find say, all the CNN links in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_presidency_of_George_W._Bush. Best, Ethanbas (talk) 04:36, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

Google. Just type a day in and you should get some corresponding newspaper or article. I wish I could find some for a Lincoln one, but the Chicago Tribune won't go as far. Informant16 2 April 2017

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics.

April 2017[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Bernie Sanders. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. General Ization Talk 03:11, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Reverted deletion of your edit[edit]

An editor deleted your edit to the Betsy DeVos page.

Your stats here. Lots of red and nothing else is pretty good. People tend to get sucked into non-red areas after a while, so don't do that!!!! Ethanbas (talk) 19:46, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

@Ethanbas:, I didn't even know any of that existed. So what are your thoughts on the progress of the presidential articles? Informant16 13 July 2017
Good work; I don't have any updated opinions from last time. I consider the work on the presidential timelines to be better for the world than work on most Wikipedia articles. Note that my co-conspirators have been working a lot on https://timelines.issarice.com/wiki/Main_Page since they kinda got kicked out of Wikipedia; you might get ideas for additional timelines to create for Wikipedia (you seem to like timeline work!). Ethanbas (talk) 22:09, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
@Ethanbas:, I don't suppose you would be up for making the Timeline of the presidency of William Howard Taft? Informant16 13 July 2017
Nah; like I've said before, I've judged that I've started enough US presidential timelines or even made a few too many; there are simply things I consider more important to work on (if I had time; I work less on Wikipedia nowdays anyhow). I recommend starting timeline of Putin/Russia since 2000; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Russian_history#21st_century for the bit of relevant information. That's one example of something I would consider to be higher value; maybe I'll even start it. Ethanbas (talk) 03:10, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

G. W. Bush presidency TL[edit]

Given the growing size of the Timeline of the presidency of George W. Bush I plan on dividing it into separate year-by-year articles, like the Timeline of the presidency of Barack Obama articles. While it will likely be a few days until I do this, I wanted to let you know in advance, as you are the current article's primary editor. Cheers. Drdpw (talk) 03:17, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

I would say this is unnecessary, although I would say we should do whatever Informant16 wants to be done. Dividing the article into 2 articles (for the 2 presidential terms) is a possibility; I am significantly against dividing it by year. Ethanbas (talk) 03:39, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I would go by presidency, if someone were to ask me. Primefac (talk) 13:24, 21 September 2017 (UTC) (talk page stalker)
My main complaints against the year by year thing are two-fold. I wanted each year to be able to eventually stand as its own article, filled with information for each month and images, and I only see about three of those eight that might suffice in their current state. Two, what would this mean for the other timelines? If I were to add a full two years to the Reagan timeline, say for 1986 and 1987 and it became 300 bytes, would you want that split despite most of the years not having anything there or massively lacking? Informant16 21 September 2017
Informant16 is completely correct. I strongly oppose dividing the timelines by year, and will revert such a move. Ethanbas (talk) 02:57, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
