Attention: I prefer to keep discussions unfragmented. If you leave a comment for me here, I will most likely respond to it on this same page—my talk page—as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place. By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there. Remember, we can use our watchlist to keep track of when responses are made. At the same time, feel free to send an alert to me on this page about a comment you have left elsewhere.

Thank you!

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Watch Tower Society publications[edit]

Pity this didn't go your way. There are way too many such articles on Wikipedia. Drmies (talk) 19:39, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Yes, some people seem to reason that if content seems useful in any capacity that it therefore 'belongs on Wikipedia'. I had myself granted this article a degree of latitude for several years because of its potential usefulness (and because I am among the primary editors who have kept the page up to date), but it really does fail Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion. However, the crowd hath spoken.--Jeffro77 (talk) 07:47, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Doctor Who[edit]

Your reason for removing the occurrences of the new {{Doctor Who episode list}} template was to "replace template causing table nesting issues in transclusion at main episode list". What is this nesting issue you speak of? I have already tested the template thoroughly, and no such issue has arisen. Picture proof would be best. Alex|The|Whovian 09:23, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Obviously you have not tested it thoroughly enough, and your arrogance is unbecoming.

Most interesting... This definitely needs fixing. Getting the HTML page source from you would be most beneficial; what browser are you using? (Also, there is no such arrogance. I was not aware of this issue. (My own picture proof.) I'm knowing such an issue needs fixing - no need to be so rude.) Alex|The|Whovian
You were aware of the issue once I indicated the issue existed, and your limited testing in one browser obviously wasn't sufficient. What was rude was you assuming someone other than you couldn't possibly be right about it after checking nothing. I am using latest version of Firefox.--Jeffro77 (talk) 09:36, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Why not ask for browser or screenshot before dogmatically reverting??--Jeffro77 (talk) 09:38, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps you could take a look at my sandbox to check if the issue has been resolved? And you assume that I only tested in one browser. I almost recall saying "I have already tested the template thoroughly"... Alex|The|Whovian 09:39, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
The fault only appears in the transclusion (at List of Doctor Who serials), so your sandbox page does not indicate the problem. It is self-evident that testing was not sufficient. It is also self-evident that you reverted before bothering to confirm that there was actually a problem.--Jeffro77 (talk) 09:41, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Issue seems to be resolved after purging cache and reloading (which did not help before). Thanks.--Jeffro77 (talk) 09:47, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks for raising this issue. :) And my apologies for any abruptness via the discussion or through my edits. Alex|The|Whovian 09:49, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
The edit to the module at 9:46(UTC) rectified the problem. Thanks, and apology accepted, and sorry that my reaction to your abruptness was correspondingly abrupt.--Jeffro77 (talk) 09:57, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
