Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the advice regarding what to do with dead references. I will apply that convention to my future editing. Antiselfpromotion (talk) 18:57, 3 January 2013 (UTC)


Well, shit happens. It is just too many fake death news in wikipedia celebrated by paparazzi recently, so I overreacted. It looks like I have to re-read WP:AGF before goind to bed next time. Staszek Lem (talk) 17:22, 14 January 2013 (UTC)


Thank you. David in DC (talk) 21:40, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip[edit]

Thanks for the tip on adding ref links. As for most recent changes, please feel free to re-add as you think best-- I'm not really sure what to do with the whole USSC section, aside from omitting the claim that anonmyous is a nuclear-armed. :) --09:51, 26 January 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by HectorMoffet (talkcontribs) 09:51, 26 January 2013‎

Student newspapers[edit]

Reliable sources are published materials with a reliable publication process or written by authors who are regarded as authoritative in relation to the subject. While some student newspapers may meet the first qualification, the one question [1] does not as the article's capitalization ("...residents of the bay state..."), factual ("Markey, a Democrat who has represented Massachusetts' 5th district since 1976..."), and grammatical ("Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA) is currently the only person to have officially declared candidacy for the 2013 Special Elections") errors make it's reliability questionable. --Hirolovesswords (talk) 05:58, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Edward R. Korman, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Prescription (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.

Weaponized indeed[edit]

Our mutual friend has filed a weaponized complaint, though at AN3 instead of your recommended venue. Though perhaps that's coming down the pike as well. This is a bore. I'd welcome your advice. MarkBernstein (talk) 19:39, 20 May 2013 (UTC)


I never thought of the time difference. Thanks for the correction! RobinHood70 talk 19:58, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Template:Birth date and age[edit]

Hi. Just wanted to mention that I responded to your comment at Template talk:Birth date and age#Comma or semicolon instead of parens?. I also included a work-around via Template:Age that could be used until such time as your suggestion is implemented. -- Zyxw (talk) 16:49, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

infobox Adrian schoolcraft[edit]

Hi, i must have had the page open from a time before you added the info box. i don't know how to add it back in and its a good addition, so please do add it back in to the current version of the page (copy and paste from your version?)

I'm finding the WP code editing to be somewhat confusing or i would try to so it Myself. I'm sorry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jjk (talkcontribs) 20:21, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi John. I didn't intend to remove any info box. I'll check on it. (re Adrian Schoolcraft) Thanks for the note. jjk

update - someone fixed it. if it was you, you have my thanks. Jjk — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jjk (talkcontribs) 16:11, 30 November 2013‎

Cambridge Tall buildings/references[edit]

When it comes to references I am not the best. Hertz1888 usually cleans up my work. As for the building heights in these studies, these are the best that are available to me at this time. Once I am back in the states I plan on spending a day down in Cambridge digging through archives of city planning records to get the numbers straight on a lot of these buildings. Expect revisions to most of the buildings on this list after that. For the mean time, this is the best I can get off the internet and from If you have additional leads, please let me know.

Categorization of Richard G. Kopf re: Category:United States magistrate judges[edit]

  • I am somewhat puzzled as to your reversion of my addition of Category:United States magistrate judges to Richard G. Kopf. I would imagine the vast majority of all members of that category are former and not current magistrate judges and I have always been under the impression is that this category is for anyone who has ever been a magistrate judge, regardless of whether they are currently holding that office. Indeed, the vast majority of incumbent magistrate judges fail the inclusion criteria for inclusion in Wikipedia, both as to WP:GNG and the judicial inclusion criteria, which limits inclusion to Article III Judges, Article IV Judges and Article I Judges who sit on notable courts. Thus to limit the category to incumbent magistrate judges would result in a virtually unpopulated category. Also, the category itself makes no mention as to its inclusion criteria, which would make the assumption that both current and former magistrate judges are included. Anyhow, I will wait to hear your thoughts on this and I will not revert at this time. Safiel (talk) 22:01, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @BD2412: I am inviting the category creator to give his thoughts also. Safiel (talk) 22:01, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps we should have this discussion on Category talk:United States magistrate judges. I don't disagree with your logic about the inclusion criteria for magistrate judges, but the category should be assumed to mean its plain language meaning, not "current and former" unless there is guidance to the contrary. I also suspect there are a lot more than 86 former magistrate judges with Wikipedia pages. jhawkinson (talk) 22:26, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

I agree that it would not make sense to require subjects in this category to be current magistrate judges. By comparison, every other category of judge includes both current and former judges in the category. For example Category:United States Supreme Court justices contains both current and former justices, including those who held other offices after being a justice. Sonia Sotomayor is categorized in both Category:Judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and Category:Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, despite not currently being in either (as are all current and former judges of either court). Randall Ray Rader is categorized in both Category:Judges of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and Category:Judges of the United States Court of Federal Claims despite having left the Federal Circuit, and not having served on the Court of Claims for 25 years. A large proportion of judges currently in the magistrate judge category are former magistrate judges now serving on the District Courts (Claire C. Cecchi, Michael A. Shipp, Leo T. Sorokin, Lonny R. Suko, Michael F. Urbanski). bd2412 T 23:19, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I have adjusted the category description accordingly. Cheers! bd2412 T 23:21, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

The onus is on the person seeking to include disputed content, to achieve consensus for its inclusion. Well done for starting a Talk page discussion, we'll see how that plays out. Guy (Help!) 19:21, 1 April 2017 (UTC),, etc.[edit]

Do we know of any admins who are familiar with, and/or sympathetic to, libertarian views, and therefore would be aware that these are not spam sites? If we can get an admin to remove those sites from the spam blacklist, that seems like the easiest approach. If not, then I guess it needs to go to someplace like RFC, but that's going to probably start a lot of drama. I don't think the current state of affairs can be allowed to stand, though.

So I guess the way ANI works is, it's just a place for the plebeians to snitch on each other (often via some anonymous IP address, so that they receive the deference that's typically given to anons, while at the same time having a lack of accountability), rather than for plebeians to complain about sysops' behavior. Because if you do that, then people will just say, "Oh, actually you're the one who's causing problems by bringing complaints here and starting a lot of drama, so maybe we should do something about YOU."

I guess what people are expected to do instead, is cultivate friendships with various sysops, and then approach them through back channels (e.g. email) with their complaints about other sysops, so that their befriended sysop can then raise the issue with the other sysop, "Hi, I happened to notice this action you took..." or maybe just undo their action.

ANI is one of the most hostile places on Wikipedia, where pretty much no holds are barred, and AGF is not enforced because people's attitude is, "If you took your complaint here, you waived any expectations of AGF." N I H I L I S T I C (talk) 19:32, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
