With regards to Gladys Egan, why did you undo some of my edits and not all of them? If the name is wrong, so is the date and place of death listed on the the death certificate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Divxguy (talkcontribs) 03:17, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Robert W. Schmieder[edit]

I am the official biographer of Albert Ghiorso. What business do you have undoing my edits of his Wikipedia page? He died yesterday, Dec. 26, 2010 at the age of 95.

Here is the note from his daughter to me: "Hi Bob, Thank you very much for going to visit my father on Christmas. I am very sad to tell you that my father has died today. Apparently he went quietly - his heart just stopped. I want to tell you how much I appreciate the friendship and caring that you have offered him over the past year, even in the midst of your own trials and tribulations. I'll be in touch later, but I wanted to let you know at once. -Kris

Kindly keep your hands off material that doesn't concern you and of which you are clearly ignorant.

Re: Christmas music[edit]

You're right, I should have brought it up on the Talk page first. There were several comments on the Talk page already about how the article was in need of a rewrite, so I was bolder than I usually would be. Maybe in the new year we can find a compromise that we both agree with. I don't want to wreck anyone's fun over Christmas. Cheers, Kla'quot 00:31, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

California Proposition 8 (2008)[edit]

Hi, you edited out Chuck Norris with the comment "we decided to keep the entertainment industry out of this".

Actually, I don't think that's quite right; we agreed to condense a huge list of individual opponents into the following referenced statement: "Many members of the entertainment industry were opposed to Proposition 8."

At the time, there weren't any notable entertainment supporters. Someone recently added Norris, and I left it in for balance (adding a citation.)

So you might want to reconsider, though it isn't a big deal. —EqualRights (talk) 14:36, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Proposed new policy[edit]

As a recent contributor to Deaths in 2009, you may be able to help decide on a proposed new policy. It is proposed that:

A month should be deleted from the "Deaths in [CURRENT YEAR]" page ONE WEEK after the month ends.

Please opine at Talk:Deaths_in_2009#Proposed new policy. Don't just say

  • Support.

or

  • Oppose.

Also state your reasons and participate in the discussion. Michael Hardy (talk) 16:37, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

FAC withdrawn[edit]

I appreciate that you are acting in good faith, but it is best if featured articles are nominated by people who have worked closely on them. In this way, they can give reasoned replies to reviewers and be familiar enough with the sources to act on suggested improvements. Someone who has not worked on the article can not provide this input, so the nomination may continue until opposition to it becomes so overwhelming that the article is failed; this takes away time from reviewers. While the Albus Dumbledore article is of reasonable quality, it is not yet of featured quality, and principal contributors must be consulted before a nomination, as required in the featured article candidate instructions. You might consider first working the article up through peer review and good article candidacy to prepare for its nomination. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:40, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Pola Illéry[edit]

Please do not remove her from "Category:Living people" again unless you have a source that proves that she is deceased. In order to protect subjects per WP:BLP, if a site claims that she is alive, no matter how reliable it is, and there is no evidence to the contrary, then she MUST remain in Category:Living people, which offers WP:BLP protections that Category:Possibly living people does not (for example, if an IP address removes this category, the edit is flagged). Cheers, CP 18:30, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

You're right, it's riddled with mistakes and is very unreliable for a lot of things - but I cannot justify removing the Category "living people" when there's a source that flat out declares that she is alive and there is not a single other source to contradict that, even if, yes, it's otherwise unlikely that she's alive - but WP:BLP is not based on probabilities.
Perhaps this is a good solution: Bring her case to Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard and explain the situation and I will comment there myself. If the consensus there is that "Possibly living people" is more appropriate, then I will be satisfied and we can also take her off of the List of Centenarians and remove the "Romanian centenarians" category. Does that sound good? Cheers, CP 19:54, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Brenda Joyce[edit]

Hey, thanks for the helpful hint. You know if you'd added a source in the first place, like you're supposed to, this would not have happened. If the source was so easy to find, is there a particular reason that you didn't include it? Doing these simple things will make you a better editor too. I find it incredible that you would leave a message on my talk page telling me to look for sources - when you didn't bother including them yourself, and telling me that failing to do so is lazy? Look at yourself first, before you decide you are going to comment about me. That would be appreciated. Thanks. Rossrs (talk) 14:26, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Apology accepted?? I think you're mistaking rudeness for aggression. You were rude, and I was rude back. Aggression is an entirely different thing. Perhaps you should be more careful about the tone of the messages you leave. You could even assume good faith, fix what needs to be fixed, and not bother commenting. But here's something for you to consider - if you absolutely had to comment about this, you could have said the same thing politely, and I would have responded politely, because I am full of politeness, and that would have been better, wouldn't it? Please do not use words such as "lazy" or presume to tell me how to "become an even better contributor". You can't honestly expect anyone to read something like that and feel warm and fuzzy towards you. You've fixed the article, and that's good. Rossrs (talk) 15:56, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Olivia Patricia Thomas[edit]

Your adding of a death date to Olivia Patricia Thomas with a reference that says "Louis Epstein is reporting that a 114-year-old woman died today (name withheld until family notified). I'm not going to name names, but it's almost certainly a woman from New York." was a complete violation of Wikipedia's policies on the biographies of living people. I will be reporting this to the noticeboard and will paste you the thread when it is complete. Cheers, CP 22:34, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Here's the link. Have you ever considered that HER OWN FAMILY may not even know yet? How would you like to learn that your mother was dead by accidentally stumbling across the information on a website? Robert Young had the respect to wait. Cheers, CP 22:43, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

BLP warning[edit]

You are an experienced user, with edits since February 2006, so it's a bit shocking that I have to do this, but please do not ever declare someone dead without an unquestionably reliable source. I don't care how goodfaith your addition was, and I don't doubt for a second it was fully goodfaith, but there are internet hoaxes about people's death's ALL THE TIME. A yahoo group is not a reliable source. If you do this again, you may very well be blocked until such time as you pledge not to post poorly sourced death notices. Hipocrite (talk) 16:11, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Reference needed[edit]

Do you happen to have a reference for this death date? I've been trying to find a reliable source for a death date for some time, but have come up empty handed. If you have a good source it needs to be included in the article for verification otherwise the information needs to be removed and category "living people" restored. Thanks, --Jezebel'sPonyoshhh 15:18, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

On second thought I've reverted your change until a reliable source is provided. Until the death can be verified, the individual is still covered under WP:BLP policy and the contentious info needs to be removed. I searched for a source myself but was unable to find a reliable one. Please go ahead and update the article once you have a reference for verification. --Jezebel'sPonyoshhh 15:28, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Deaths in 2010[edit]

Now, I don't care one way or the other, but doesn't Donnelly winning the lottery sort of make him notable? Not having a page doesn't make him non-notable, not everyone listed has their own page. HalfShadow 00:15, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

No, like I said I don't care. I've never heard of the guy before, I'm just commenting in passing. HalfShadow 00:25, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

nonagenerian[edit]

Hi Jkaharper,

I was most interested to see your list of centenarians, but wasn't so sure about your list of "nonagenarians". I looked it up:

–adjective 1.of the age of 90 years, or between 90 and 100 years old.

so by that definition, the table should include all those born between 1910 and 1919, or perhaps renamed to "neo-centenarians". I wonder, is there a word for "99-year-old"? regards, Lynbarn (talk) 15:24, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Age of Yosef Sholom Eliashiv[edit]

Removal of the "Living people" category[edit]

While it's fine to move people with no evidence of being alive to "possibly living" people, moving living people into that category who have sources on the page is incredibly disruptive editing. Wilbert Doneleyko, Nikolaos Martis, and Pedro Medina Avendaño all had references in plain sight confirming that they were still alive in 2009. It's clear that you're not even looking at the references on the page, otherwise you would have noticed that Myron Donovan Crocker died on February 2. If you remove the "living people" category from individuals who have recent evidence of being alive on their Wikipedia pages again, I will block you from editing for a week for disruption. So please, at least read the sources on the page before changing the category, and preferably a basic Google search, otherwise you're only hindering the project by doing these category shifts. Canadian Paul 15:40, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

You know, I really wish you'd stop threatening me with blocks when you know fine well that my intentions are not to be disruptive but rather meant in good faith. I really don't think it's an editor's responsibility to click through every reference at the bottom of the page to see if an individual has been reported as alive recently IF the references are not relevant to the content of the article. I added the Possibly living category if there was no mention of the individual being alive in the last 15 years or so in the actual article content. It's sheer laziness if an editor has simply posted a list of links at the bottom of the article for other people to work with later. If there's no mention in the actual content of the individual being alive then I really don't see why the category shouldn't be added. I do not have time or patience to go through heaps of Google news archives or read through every reference, some of which are very long or even require a translation engine. If it would resolve this situation, I could send you a list every so often of individuals that may be suited for the Possibly living category and you could work through them when you get the time. You appear to be much better at finding researching sources than I am. Cheers --Jkaharper (talk) 10:28, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I really don't see how an editor who wants to remove people from the "living people" category without bothering to even look at the sources on the page - let alone sources outside of it to justify their changes - is acting in "good faith". I've brought up WP:BLP with you enough times that you should know why just discarding the category willy-nilly is problematic. Furthermore, even though it IS your responsibility to review evidence before you make changes (changing the category from living to possibly living without going through the sources is no different than adding an unreferenced fact to an article), even if it wasn't, you make it sound like there were piles of links to go through in each case. Doneleyko only had one and it was called "Biographies of Living Members" and, considering that we're talking about a 1-2 sentence stub article here, you'd have to almost be trying to miss the fact that there was evidence of him being alive. Crocker had only one reference, which you could have clicked on and figure out information from in less than 10 seconds. Martis had two references, his personal site and an Amazon book review, so even if you looked at them in the wrong order, that's still less than 30 seconds. In Avendaño's case, the first link is very properly stated (not "sheer laziness") and thus has a date of 2009, making it worth a click and thus making the information completely available. So I don't buy your excuses and find it a bit hypocritical for you to chide the "sheer laziness" of others. Furthermore, there are plenty of articles that don't mention directly that the individual is alive, but you wouldn't remove the living people tag off of, say, Ronald Neame would you? If you don't "have time or patience to go through heaps of Google news archives or read through every reference, some of which are very long or even require a translation engine" then why are you doing this at all? That's the equivalent of saying "I'm going to add a biography of this person, but I don't have the time or patience to reference any of it". And, again, I'm not getting at you for not having scoured every possible source for the person's living status, that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the references that are on the page. And I don't see what "situation" requires resolution - it's better to have possibly living people in the living category than the other way around. And yeah, I did go through everyone up to 1911 last year in the "living people" category to see who was appropriate for the PLP category and it took a long time, but no one had to clean up after me after I did it.

It is important to remember that appointments are made to The Order and not to the British Empire (which no longer exists). The name of the order is "The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" (refer to sect (1) Statute of "The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire") and the name is case sensitive. There are two redirects Member of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and Member of the Order of the British Empire both of which are valid for an M.B.E. Substitute "Officer", "Commander", "Knight Commander", "Dame Commander", Knight Grand Cross" and "Dame Grand Cross" where appropriate.

I like your work and it's great to see someone keeping the Honours Lists up-to-date.

Alexander Bülow[edit]

For what it's worth, I believe that the "European centenarian report" referred to by the IP address who listed Bülow as dead refers to a list someone is keeping at the 110 Club of the oldest men in Europe and Japan (i can't link it directly, because the site is on the spam blacklist, but you can see it at http://z3 .invisionfree.com/The_110_Club/index.php?showtopic=5822&st=0) so obviously not reliable enough for Wikipedia. Having said, I'm going to be removing him off my list, as I am certain that he is dead.

Bill Clarke (footballer born 1916)[edit]

Hi - I note your edit summary when you reverted my last edit. IIIRC, a few years ago an obituary in a Southampton FC matchday programme said that the subject was the last surviving Saints player from before WWII. I can no longer find this and it would be difficult to cite. A new book is due in September which will bring the Southampton player bios up to date, so if that gives a date for Clarke's death, I can eit the article then. Best wishes. -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 21:49, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

This recent obituary of Charlie Purves confirms that the oldest living former Southampton player is probably Stan Clements who become 90 on 25 June 2013. I have therefore reverted your edits to the Clarke article. -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 04:19, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Louise Abeita Chewiwi[edit]

Nice to start out the conversation by threatening to ban me. Too bad you didn't come to the funeral, had there been a coffin, you could have tipped it as you leaned over to tell her "there's no obit, you're fine..." To my knowledge, there has not been a death notice, or obit published, my cousins are in charge of that and I have no control over that aspect. Shall I get a death certificate and include a jpeg, or might I run afoul of your copyright enforcement? JesAbeita (talk) 16:52, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Rules are there to be adhered to - no exceptions! I can't believe there is not one news organisation out there, nor any of the websites that focus on Native American lit that don't want to publish this news. Get in touch with them and send them the death certificate! You have to understand that there has been to date thousands of false death claims on here, so we must be very strict. I don't know what part of that you don't understand? --Jkaharper (talk) 17:03, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Were were you when users edited in wrong info on who my great-grandfather is? (Louis, not Pablo Abeita, if it comes up again.) So, now it looks like some people did this http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSob=c&GSlh=1&GSsr=41&GRid=133252559&. Do you consider that "published?" Also, my cousins (my Auntie's kids) are in charge of the obit, this is just my thing- hate bad information pushed by outsiders. JesAbeita (talk) 17:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

FindAGrave or Legacy.com etc. are not considered good sources (because as like Wikipedia, anyone can edit them, anyone can create a page etc.) but it'll do for now until a better source comes along. And in answer to your first question - no, it wasn't me. The history log shows that the only edits I have made are to remove an unsourced date of death. All the best --Jkaharper (talk) 18:55, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

I wasn't suggesting you put the bad info out there that time, I just want to know why my, factually-accurate edit was jumped on (and why you threatened me with a ban off the bat,) while bad info stood for a long time (it's what prompted me to contribute time to this in the first place,) without similar intervention. Also, what do you do when published information is wrong? - it happens a lot in my areas of interest.

Potential BLP issues[edit]

Hi. Please don't add unsourced birth or death dates to biographical articles. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:26, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

I see that you're now edit warring to include unsourced birth and death dates in biographies. This is a very bad idea, as it can get you blocked. Please see WP:V and WP:BLP. I am aware that there's a guest blog at The Wrap that says Daniel Quinn died, but that's not quite the same thing as an obituary. It also does not have either a birth or death date listed. In fact, the only site on the Internet that I can easily find that's reporting this data is the IMDb, and the IMDb is not a reliable source. In fact, it's explicitly listed in WP:RS as an example of a user-generated source that should not be used for citations. This is your second warning: please stop adding unsourced birth and death dates. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 05:05, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Naui, please contact the press alerting them of Steve Clark's death. A full obituary isn't necessary.

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Kirk Douglas 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 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. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 07:53, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

John Gardiner[edit]

For the final time - you have made an edit, I have reverted. Per WP:BRD the next step is to discuss. You should not revert again. For what its worth I can't trust your edit/source until you explain it properly on the article talk page, and until such time as you no longer violate WP:OR and the principles pf WP:BLPPRIMARY.

Renate Haußleiter-Malluche[edit]

Hello. I actually can't understand, why we can't use the source, which is obviously considered as reliable, for the date of her death, (undoubtedly, the House of the Bavarian History in Augsburg is a serious scientific institution), but at the same time some dubious source was used to claim that she turned 100, although there was nothing about that in this source, and it has been in this article for months. --Sersou (talk) 07:53, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

So, what makes you think that the source in question notes her date of death?--Jkaharper (talk) 10:18, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
The German word gestorben usually means died. But if you don't trust this source, you can write an e-mail to the House of the Bavarian History and ask, which sources they used. I don't see any other way, how we can get a confirmation. --Sersou (talk) 16:02, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Hi Sersou, I've reinstated her date of death. I think you meant to source this link: http://www.hdbg.de/parlament/content/persDetail.php?id=4538, but it wasn't in your edit. Apologies for the confusion. --Jkaharper (talk) 16:16, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that's exactly what I meant, but then I saw that this source has been already cited in the article. Under reference 1 the same source is cited, that's why I only changed the date of the retrieval. --Sersou (talk) 17:00, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Alfons Olszewski [edit]

Hello, actually he died as I wrote, 12/7/2006. After my research I found the orbituary proving it. It's also mentioned in the sources of his wiki page http://zeglarski.info/artykuly/losy-polskich-olimpijczykow-klasy-r-6-tornado-i-europa/ --Tommak (talk) 11:05, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Sorry[edit]

Hi there, sorry about this[1], I completely misunderstood the category. I thought it meant people who turned 100, and since the subject was 100 and his birthdate was sourced, I added it. Since I don't add unsourced content to articles, I made the edit in good faith thinking it was already sourced. Again sorry. Cmr08 (talk) 23:08, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Paul van Hoeydonck's birth date[edit]

I removed the alleged birth date you added to Fallen Astronaut for two reasons:

  • You did not provide a citation.
  • The fact of his birth date (even if it can be verified) is irrelevant to the article page. He is only notable for this single event: his involvement in the Fallen Astronaut scandal. He otherwise does not merit notability for a biographical article (see WP:SINGLEEVENT). JustinTime55 (talk) 15:52, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of centenarians (politicians and civil servants), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page New York (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

Anita Ellis[edit]

I'm sorry for arguing with you, but there are no sources saying Ms. Ellis has passed away. It is possible, but it hasn't confirmed so far. She has Alzheimer's disease for several years, but that doesn't mean she has died. Turkish actor Münir Özkul died 15 years after being diagnosed with dementia.Radiohist (talk)

Munchkin[edit]

I greatly thank you for your edit as I am always looking for help but there was a difference between actor size and billing. They couldnt find enough midget actors to use so some were billed as munchkins but were children. Its confusing I know... - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 23:29, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

An American Custom[edit]

I left an editorial note on the change. The reason why the Americans are changing it to 26 is because under American racing rules all thoroughbred horses are born on January 1st of whatever year they are born. So using that standard, he would be 26 years old. Now for many of the pure bred horses we know exactly to the minute when they are born which in this case was in May, making him 25. But federal racing rules are the governing body in this case, not the state licensing rules on horse births, so we should follow the racing standard. Believe me I realize this is a wonky custom looking in from the outside, but it is the way the industry standardizes who is eligible for racing in this country as our racing is done by age not general class...so you would have races for 1 year olds, 2 year olds, 3 year olds (which are the big ones including the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont), etc.

And a funny case of what if...Thunder Gulch wouldnt have been eligible for the Kentucky Derby the year he won it otherwise, as he was not yet 3 years old by the birthdate.Sunnydoo (talk) 23:47, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Petar Brzica[edit]

Hi Jkaharper. I saw your addition of a death date to Petar Brzica's page, but I'm not sure that that information is reliable. Aside from the fact that sections of the text look like they've copied from (or at lest been inspired by) Wikipedia, the page's own reference for his lifespan comes from a book that was published in 2002, so there's no way that it could support the fact that he died in 2010. Thoughts? Canadian Paul 11:20, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi CP. Yeah I see where you’re coming from. Should probably be changed back. Cheers --Jkaharper (talk) 14:30, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
