RfC: linking pre- and post-nominals[edit]

Greetings! There seems to be a new discussion, this time an RfC, about the linking of pre- and post-nominals. Cheers! Jayaguru-Shishya (talk) 21:37, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Hmm... Just an idea, but perhaps e.g. KG would serve the purpose? :P Jayaguru-Shishya (talk) 23:08, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

Hi, the source that seems to support most of the Brussels massacre article and that you've just added to Eucharistic miracle has a dead link, and Google isn't helping me find a live version. Do you have anything firmer? --Andreas Philopater (talk) 00:01, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

United Original Secession Church[edit]

I found User:Jnestorius/Church of Scotland family tree while making an RFD nomination for United Original Secession Church; if you'd comment there, I'd appreciate it. One note on your family tree — your Cameronians links, or at least the latter one, should go to Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland, which is yet extant. Nyttend (talk) 21:36, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. Regarding your SOFIXIT comment, I didn't know where to look — I had no real idea of where to find anything off-wiki about the United Original Secession Church, Original Secession Church, or Synod of United Original Seceders (Scotland), aside from their years of existence. I assumed that they were descendants of the Associate Church, judging by the name alone, and from synodical minutes of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland, I knew that there were relations of a sort between them (e.g. UOSC minister William McKane was appointed as a fraternal delegate to the RPCS Synod of 1955), but that was all I knew. A bigger problem is that I really don't have much knowledge of sources on the Associate Church in general: I would have written an article years ago on the Associate Synod of North America if I had anything solid beyond Scouller's Manual; minor mentions in Glasgow's History and appearances in less general sources such as Buckeye Presbyterianism and the testimony of the Reformed Dissenting Presbytery (I have access to a print copy) really aren't enough to sustain an article. Nyttend (talk) 01:55, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
I would say never be afraid of writing a stub. Even one sentence, if that's all your references can support. Adding it to the right categories increases the likelihood of someoone with more sources finding and expanding it. jnestorius(talk) 04:05, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Seles ranking[edit]

You made an incorrect assessment of the situation of Seles' ranking. While she was out injured no one wanted her to have her ranking preserved during her 28 month recovery. But when she announced a comeback in August of '95 only a very few players were against her being given a co-number-one ranking. Graf specifically was for it. The comeback section could contain that fact. It was only her maintaining a number 1 ranking while recovering first physically and then mentally that players were against. Fyunck(click) (talk) 22:58, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Well, thank you for your correction; let me point out that the version to which you reverted did not contain any of the information you offer, only a cryptic allusion to Sabatini. It would have been as easy for you to fix the article rather than leave this Talk page message. jnestorius(talk) 10:46, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Murder of Moll McCarthy[edit]

You made a good job of the article. Do you know if the President has issued the pardon yet for Harry Gleason?

Thanks. I don't think it has happened yet, but it's hard to prove a negative. jnestorius(talk) 18:35, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Castlereagh[edit]

Other townlands exist with the same name yes, but do they have articles? No. Thus we are adding in disambiguation that is unrequired. I highly doubt any other Castlereagh townland articles will be created making all those redlinks you've added to a disambiguation page redundant, which also goes against this principle unless properly qualified. Though Castlereagh, Knockbreda would be a better name than Castlereagh (County Down townland), which would match the disambiguation you used for the RoI Castlereagh redlinks. Mabuska (talk) 12:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

In fact Castlereagh (County Down townland) could be merged into Castlereagh (barony) or both together to form an article similarly titled to Lecale or Ards (territory). Mabuska (talk) 12:40, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
There needs to be a central discussion about handling townlands, including: whether all are notable or only some; naming conventions for disambiguation of articles; what to redirect to in the absence of a specific article. The current assumption seems to be that all townlands, being officially defined units, are sufficiently notable. I guess Wikipedia:WikiProject Ireland is the place, not my user page. jnestorius(talk) 12:53, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Just to notify you in case you object to it, I have submitted a merge proposal for Castlereagh in County Down: Talk:Castlereagh_(County_Down_townland)#Merger_proposal Mabuska (talk) 14:44, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Sinn Féin Funds case[edit]

Congratulations on creating the Sinn Féin Funds case article. The case has fascinated me for years, but I knew very little about it, so I was delighted to find it so clearly explained. I have nominated it for DYK at Template:Did you know nominations/Sinn Féin Funds case. Feel free to suggest an alternative hook if you wish. Scolaire (talk) 10:18, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, all compliments gratefully received. jnestorius(talk) 17:08, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Coat of arms is not the standard of the President of Ireland[edit]

Yes it states "but was hopeful that the coat of arms of Ireland would be adopted afterwards", but its the standard of the President of Ireland being shown, minor difference I know but still not the same. Murry1975 (talk) 19:22, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Do you want to copy File:Flag President of Ireland.svg to an identical file named File:J. J. Kelly's proposed Olympic flag of Ireland.svg? Be my guest. 19:32, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
Can you show an example of what Kelly had in mind, I dont think I have seen one, and I assuming what was being put forward by Kelly and changing a file or copying it with out proof is original research. Murry1975 (talk) 19:35, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
The arms of Ireland are a gold harp with silver strings on a blue field. I did not intend to imply that Kelly specifically favoured File:Flag President of Ireland.svg over, say, File:Arms of Ireland banner (Historical).svg or File:Bratach na hÉireann.svg. Any of those would do for illustration. If you are worried that picking any one in particular overstates the case, maybe the resolution is to change the caption to something like "A flag based on the arms of Ireland, such as this, was proposed in the 1920s for the Olympic team." jnestorius(talk) 23:07, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Broken markup[edit]

Hi, this[1] was probably a rare typo, but I thought I'd let you know anyway. By not closing the inline comment with -->, you truncated the article at that point, leaving the remainder commented-out.

Dáil Éireann edit revert[edit]

Hey, I see you undid my edit on Dáil Éireann where I changed Eireann to Éireann here. You mentioned that quote as in source. Many official English sources until the 1990s omitted any síne fada on capital letters.

Did you look at the source for the quote before undoing my edit. I can see in the source that it is quoted as Éireann.

Was I wrong in changing it to reflect the actual quote? ~ Ablaze (talk) 06:53, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Ricardo Campos (actor)[edit]

Hello, Jnestorius. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Ricardo Campos (actor), for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 12:36, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposal to change WP:MOSLINK opened at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style[edit]

Greetings! Were you aware that a proposal has been made at Wikipedia Talk:Manual of style#Proposed revision: links within quotes instead of the forum where it belongs, Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Linking? The proposal is to link terms within quotations, but I am really concerned how widely this sort of policy discussion will reach the people if it's not even discussed at its very own forum. What do you think? Cheers! Jayaguru-Shishya (talk) 16:01, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
