Librarynerds, I hate to bust your bubble, but if you do the math there is only 125 episodes of Reba. Kindly accept this fact.

Transgender[edit]

First, did you read WP:BRD? Instead of changing it back again, you're supposed to discuss first. Second, what does "I can't control what the linked page says" supposed to mean? You can't change what's on that page, but you can "control" what's on the 19 Kids page? By the way, I read what it says about it on that "GLAAD" site, and personally, I think it's ridiculous. But, that's my opinion. --Musdan77 (talk) 03:33, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

  • I did, but transgendered isn't up for debate. It's an offensive term for transgender people, so it shouldn't be used on a page that's not meant to offend people. You said that the linked page uses that word multiple times. I provided a source that lists it as an offensive term. I can't change whatever linked page you meant, but I do, as a person with internet access, have the ability to edit Wikipedia pages, which is what I did, to remove an offensive term, the same as I would edit a page that used f*ggot or the t-slur or the N word. You can think it's ridiculous all you want, but that doesn't mean it's not offensive. And your personal views don't matter to Wikipedia. GLAAD is a widely known and recognized source for LGBT+ issues. Librarynerds (talk) 03:40, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Also, the page on here is named t, with transgendered redirecting to that. Librarynerds (talk) 03:42, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
The "linked page" is the one in question: Transgender! Everything having to do with content is up for debate. We don't give website addresses in an edit summary. You can on a talk page. And we don't remove/change a word just because someone may be offended by it. --Musdan77 (talk) 14:59, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    • Really? You think if someone used the N word in an article to describe a black person, that wouldn't get changed immediately (not including the article on the word, address its status as a racial slur)? The page transgender only uses transgendered in a quote, notes, and references. Librarynerds (talk) 15:19, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
"The page transgender only uses transgendered in a quote, notes, and references." I know. But, if it's so offensive then (1) why would it even be on the page (without saying it's wrong), and (2) why would you not try to have it removed from there? --Musdan77 (talk) 18:07, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
  • It's a direct quote. It wouldn't be a direct quote anymore if I changed the word. Librarynerds (talk) 22:04, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
I understand that. But, since you are so adamant about it being so offensive then I would think that you would want to post on the talk page to have the quote, and/or the other instances, removed. --Musdan77 (talk) 23:20, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

December 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Wikiisawesome. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to Alex Karev— because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. /wia🎄/tlk 04:09, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Your revert on my edit on Code Black (TV series)[edit]

Hiya! I just wanted to follow up on your undoing of my edit on the Code Black article. As explained in my edit summary, I watch the show and can confirm that Luis Guzman's character name is Jesse Salander, not Jose Santiago—he introduces himself in the pilot episode as Jesse. I did read the source and frankly I'm not sure why the name is Jose; maybe the change in character name was made by the show's producers before it premiered. I would have appreciated an assumption of good faith on your part rather than undoing my edit without a clear explanation, as my edit wasn't made in bad faith. Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this edit. Thanks! 96.55.209.16 (talk) 03:22, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
