Next UK General election[edit]

Hi, I notice you on the next United Kingdom general election talk page. Bondegezou and I have been discussing the possibility of a prose summary of the major shifts and trends in public opinion over the Parliament (where that can be seen reported in reliable sources) on the article page. I would tend to agree, and have started to draft, but would like others' views before I put too much work into it. Please comment! DrArsenal (talk) 13:23, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Falkland Islands Sovereignty Dispute ~ Opinion needed[edit]

Hi, I am writting this letter because I am not very pleased with the fact that Curry Monster undid an important piece of information which I posted in the Falklands Islands Sovereignty Dispute. I added this vital (54 countries recognizing Argentina's claim over the Islands isn't nothing..) piece of information:

On February 22, 2013, 54 African countries recognized the sovereignty of Argentina over the Falklands at the South America-Africa Summit (SAS)
that was held in Equatorial Guinea, these 54 African countries signed the Malabo Declaration, which included Argentina's claim. [1] [2] [3] 


I would like to ask you to take a look at it and to hear your opinion.

Thank you in advance for your help. Amorparamipatria (talk)

Hello,
I would start by making you aware of WP:CANVASS. In principle, this message would fall foul of this rule as it is not neutral.
In this case, it makes little difference. I agree that with Wee Curry Monster that not all statements made are automatically relevant or "important", let alone "vital". It has not been established, through secondary sources on the subject as a whole, that this particular statement is relevant to the dispute as a whole. I note that multiple African governments, both before and after the statement in question, have made statements or suggestions that would seem to contradict the statement you desecribe. I would thus endorse his revert. Kahastok talk 22:07, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Any chance of more help and advice[edit]

Hello Kahastok, I know you added a bit to some of the discussions on this and seemed to support obeying WP:UNITS. So I am being cheeky and asking if you can help me with it in the Brit footballer pieces. I'm asking because Michael Glass is still refusing to allow me to follow WP:UNITS for Brit players and at the same insisting that pieces about non-Brit players follows it!!! He's even going around the articles swapping the PFA (footballers bible ;-) ) reference that uses feet and inches for a link to the Premier League site which only uses meters. Other users then insist the height should be meters like the reference!!! That isn't how WP:UNITS says to do it. Speccy4Eyes (talk) 07:26, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi Kahastok, thank you for your tip. Unfortunately, I've carefully read the document you're mentioned (according to you, WP:Signatures does say that the signature should be at the end of the post, rather than in the middle) and haven't found the slightest instruction about not including postscripts (BTW, Wikipedia:Signatures is not a policy, but a behavioral guideline (and therefore It is a generally accepted standard that editors should attempt to follow, though it is best treated with common sense, and occasional exceptions may apply). It's really weird to be so strict with regard to a given policy (in fact, it's simply your own interpretation of a guideline), and, at the same time, trying to get me blocked without being able to mention any single policy that would support such a claim. In fact, your behavior seems to be related to a real policy in THIS wikipedia: the singling out of one or more editors, and joining discussions on multiple pages or topics they may edit or multiple debates where they contribute, in order to repeatedly confront or inhibit their work (if you don't remember the wording, it's WP:HOUND). Please, focus on your work and I'll do the same. Best regards --Discasto (talk) 22:57, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

BTW, I've just noticed that you're in fact [redacted Kahastok talk 19:06, 2 March 2015 (UTC)]... everything is much understandable now :-P --Discasto (talk) 07:40, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Who are you claiming I'm WP:HOUNDing? I don't see any editors in common between your SPI, WP:MOSNUM and Naming (parliamentary procedure), the three pages - other than your talk page - that I've edited in the last week. And the post on your talk page came directly from the SPI. If you think that's it's you, then that is a pretty serious personal attack by you against me and I would urge you to withdraw it.
Your claim that I am "trying to get [you] blocked" is clearly false, and also a personal attack. At no stage since I found out that you had unretired yourself have I tried to get you blocked. I called for you to be restricted to a single account, which in the circumstances I think is only reasonable, and I don't see why you should object to it. Plenty of us manage to work with one account perfectly well. And it's not like you have a right to expect this project to help you disrupt another (by evading your block there).
Re: the rule on signatures, WP:SIGHOW says that they way to sign is by, [a]t the end of your comments simply type four tildes (~), like this: ~~~~.
But beyond that it is common sense. People like to see who wrote what and that's much harder when the signature is in the middle of the post. To the point where there really isn't any point in your signing your posts at all. Why is it not more prominent there? Probably because practically nobody else on Wikipedia does it your way. I asked you to avoid doing it in future, politely and with reasons (not just per policy). I'm not the first to have done so. And you responded with a string of personal attacks and accusations and announced that it was within policy so yah boo sucks to you. Frankly, with that attitude, I wouldn't be too surprised if you were indeffed here before too long, without any help from me. Kahastok talk 19:06, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

No drama from my side. It's really sad to see two supposedly grown-ups keeping a so clownish hounding and harassment... Sad. --Discasto (talk) 23:37, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

@Discasto: if you are either not willing or not able to edit my user talk page without abusing me, please do not edit it at all. Thanks, Kahastok talk 19:14, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

It changes the meaning[edit]

[1] It does, but it was warranted because it's not only the Argentine government who argues that Argentina has maintained a claim over the Falkland Islands since 1833 but also half (or, I'd venture to say, more than a half) of the academic universe. Of course, the British-POV is is strengthened when you put the argument in the mouth of Argentina instead of academics, but oh well, I tried to be neutral. ----Langus TxT 20:40, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
