Cholula forks[edit]

Just in case you're interested, I've forked several articles from the Cholula, Puebla article: San Francisco Acatepec, Santa María Tonantzintla, San Gabriel Convent, and Plaza de la Concordia. I've noted the forks at Talk:Cholula, Puebla and suggested additional trimming to the "Pyramid of Cholula and Nuestra Señora de los Remedios Church" section since there are separate articles about both. None of these articles are ideal, but hopefully they will get the ball rolling on some better standalone articles about seemingly notable topics. Just wanted to share in case you enjoy following along, thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:00, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Citation advice[edit]

Hi, thanks for tagging John Leamy (merchant) today. I'm not sure how to resolve the citation-needed tag for "Tusculum Street still runs nearby". Isn't the mere uncontroversial existence of a public street, identified by location, a case of WP:BLUESKY? I could find a Philadelphia street map to cite, of course, but it seems a bit silly. It would be like citing the existence of a book to some outside source, rather than just giving the publication details. What are your thoughts? As for the introductory sentence to the Business section, this is a summary of the section, introducing (per my best effort) no claims not cited below. Kim Post (talk) 02:59, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @Kim Post: Hi, thanks for coming to my talkpage. I'm more on the other side of the perspective, and think we should cite absolute statements of fact whenever made (notwithstanding if they are controversial or not). In the end, an additional source won't hurt. Besides, information on Wikipedia can quickly become outdated, so a source can help readers understand when the information was once relevant or factual (by adding an access date, for example). You are allowed to cite Google Maps or similar websites for specific roads, so feel free to do that.
I've removed the citation request for the Business section. Thanks for clarifying! MX () 03:17, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Alberto Jorge's article[edit]

Thanks for your comment on my submission. I have done as you suggested.

While researching for the footballer's stats (that I copied from both the German and Spanish Wikipedia articles), I realized they were inaccurate or missing for some seasons; thus I had to go on research season by season, since his database profile has been deleted and does not seem to be any archive of it. Also I have added a few other interesting facts to the article such as how much León payed to bring him to Mexican football.

Feel free to check it out. Cheers.--Cocu15 (talk) 02:59, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @Cocu15: Thank you. Nice job with the article. I'm a Toluca fan myself, but I haven't been to the renovated stadium yet since I live far away from the State of Mexico. Do you plan to work on other managers for the team? I noticed a lot of red links at the manager's template.

Chhota Shakeel[edit]

I've been approached by 180.183.219.199 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) about Chhota Shakeel. Same thing you dealt with on the OC project page? Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 12:08, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

  • @Vaselineeeeeeee: Yes. This user keeps wanting to push the fact that Shakeel is dead when in reality there has not been an official statement from India, the U.S., or the Interpol. I initially thought he was right, but as I did more research it seems like the circumstances surrounding his supposed death are mysterious. The sources that claim he's dead do not even address this investigation conducted by India Today. They just claim he's dead, and that's it. I rather not give undue weight to any version. I'm not sure what to do at this point because the user doesn't seem to listen or want to engage in a discussion at the talkpage. MX () 14:17, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
I agree with you. Official sources should be used that are confirmed by the relevant officials before someone should be considered dead. Good work expanding the article by the way. I've added it to my watchlist; I won't actively search if the news is later confirmed, but if another IP adds it later, it'll prompt me to do a quick search to confirm. Regards, Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 15:23, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Oh no.You guys got it wrong.It is an extremely intricate and complex subject but the fact is that he is no longer alive.The whole of India knows that and Pakistan would never admit that he even existed.Also the rumours began in early 2017 and go to a confirmation point via Intelligence analyst ocnus ( whose paper on Organized crime and politics has been published in many places) only in 2018 and in my opinion that changes the entire story and kills the rumours.But the State will not declare him dead.Since you know and are interested in organized crime-you might know why.There are a lot spelling errors on the article too.You need to analyze the time frames between the Rumours and the Confirmation after which there has been utter silenceClearwater555 (talk) 12:38, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Rollback granted[edit]

Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

Hi MX. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback.

Víctor Manuel Vázquez Mireles[edit]

  • @Baffle gab1978: Thank you for taking this. I appreciate the work done so far. Let me know if you have any questions. MX () 15:33, 14 March 2019 (UTC)
No worries; I've split off most of the text in 'Early Life', which usually means birth, childhood and early adulthood., and placed it into a new section because it didn't really fit in 'Early life'. The c/e looks fairly simple anyway; you do a fine job with these articles. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 19:31, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

() While copy-editing the Trial and proceedings section, I found some ambiguous phrases. There are:

a) 1st paragraph: "His sentence was later dropped but Vázquez Mireles remained imprisoned and was issued with other charges." Does this mean the sentence was quashed/canceled/annulled or that it was reduced in length?
  • @Baffle gab1978: His 7.5 year conviction was cancelled (sources don't say when). MX () 14:28, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
b) 2nd paragraph: "This new charge was uncovered as part of an investigation headed by the Subprocuraduría de Investigación Especializada en Delincuencia Organizada (SIEDO), Mexico's organized crime investigation agency." Did the charge already exist but was forgotten until uncovered? In English, charges are usually "brought" or "laid", not "uncovered".
  • You're right. It would be "brought" since they were new charges against him. MX () 14:28, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
c) 3rd paragraph: " He claimed this was a violation of his human rights and asked the court to allow him to serve his trial under conditional release". Does this mean he would have been released to be tried on the new charges or did you mean serve his sentence?
  • Since he was in prison without a conviction for so long, the defense petitioned for Vázquez Mireles to be granted special privileges to allow him to be on trial as a free man (similar to being out on bail, but in this case Vázquez Mireles wouldn't pay anything to be out).
d) 4th paragraph; "The tribunal determined the evidence presented by the PGR was deficient and asked the prosecution to re-examine and modify the evidence." This seems odd; why would they be asked modify (change or adjust) the evidence?
  • Direct quote: el tribunal consideró que eran deficientes las conclusiones acusatorias que presentó la PGR en el juicio contra Vázquez Mireles, apodado "El Meme Loco" y por ello resolvió que [la PGR] tenía la posibilidad de revisarlas y, de ser el caso, modificarlas. I think what the source is saying is that the prosecution was told the evidence they presented was not good enough to convict Vázquez Mireles, and was given the opportunity to go back and fix they way it was presented (or find more/better against him). I hope my responses help. MX () 14:28, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Anyway, I'm happy to make changes based on your reply here. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 02:36, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Most of my concerns revolved around the past two presidencies (particularly about the undue weight on the electoral fraud claims). The article should probably narrow its focus to the PRI's role in those elections and not rely entirely on allegations/scandals. The dedazo practices and frauds (along with other authoritarian methods) of the past, when the PRI was the dominant party in Mexico for 71 years, are generally accepted by most accounts because that's how the PRI maintained a strong corporatist state.

es:Fox Networks Group Latin America[edit]

I'd like to ask if you can translate Spanish Wikipedia's es:Fox Networks Group Latin America article into English. Thing is, while the company was known as Fox Networks Group Latin America in recent years, it looks like (judging from Terms of Use and Privacy Policy) their legal name was Fox Latin American Channel, LLC all along (so it's like "Fox Latin American Channel, LLC, d/b/a Fox Networks Group Latin America"). Do you think which one should be the new article's title? Fox Networks Group Latin America, or Fox Latin American Channel? JSH-alive/talk/cont/mail 16:50, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Translation issues with article subject at Delmi Alvarez[edit]

Hey, MX! Would you be willing to help out at Talk:Delmi Alvarez? We have a basically well-intentioned but angry article subject who despite being told multiple times that he can't just delete the autobiography he wrote or ask us to delete it (he seems likely too notable) just keeps demanding this. I am thinking it might be just that the explanations we're giving him are in English that is too complex, or that he's using a translation program that is missing crucial points. The article has been cut to the bone to try to get rid of most of his editorializing, and he's angry about that, as he clearly spent considerable time on it. He's also angry that it got tagged as an autobiography, as that has deeply embarrassed him among his friends and peers. He just wants it to go away, and I don't think it can. He keeps stomping off saying he won't be back, but then a week or so later, back he comes. He edited the article today, and if he does that again it's quite likely to attract another autobiography tag, and I won't remove that twice. --valereee (talk) 22:31, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Help with issues come up in translated article[edit]

Hi MX, I'm a member of the Guild of Copy Editors and have taken on the job of polishing an article about a Spanish murder in the 1970s. So far so good - until I reached the section regarding the trial, where I ran into unexpected difficulties. The article obviously talks about certain aspects of the Spanish justice system (which from my research may even be outdated) and which don't make much sense to an English speaker, even one reasonably familiar with legal procedure in English criminal justice systems. I don't speak Spanish myself, so I was relying on finding articles or sites in English which could shed some light on that, but after digging through English WP and general Googles, I'm still none the wiser. It seems no one has thought of publishing these details in English. I'm really not certain that the translated terminology makes much sense in English; e.g. clearly, integrada == integrated, but in the context of a homicide case being "integrated" by multiple political organisations it makes far less sense. And there's reference to "accusations" from family members as well as by political organisations - again, wildly different from systems in English language countries. So for now I'm stalled. I'm thinking the way forward - if you can't shed some light on it yourself or offer slightly more accurate/apposite translations of the necessary words - might be to refer to Spanish WP (which I can't do), or even hunt up a Spanish lawyer who can supply the background to make a more informed decision (which I can). I think at the least a sentence or two just to clarify these details for English readers are necessary. Oddly enough, there seems to be no English article regarding this kind of detail of the Spanish justice system online, at least not one I've found. I also can't seem to find a good place in Spanish-related projects on WP to ask an editor who might know the answers. So in desperation, here I am! Face-smile.svg

What are your thoughts? Many thanks!

Cadar (talk) 08:46, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

  • @Cadar: Hi, thanks for coming to my talkpage! In order to understand the acusación statement, readers would need some background on Spain's legal system. According to Article 125 of Spanish Constitution, all Spanish citizens are allowed to participate in criminal proceedings, even if they were not "directly" affected by the crime in question. They just have to justify they are acting on behalf of legality and meet a few more prerequisites. Essentially, this allows citizens and civil groups in Spain to act as "third-party" prosecutors. This motion is legally known as acusación popular and is still used in Spain. So this means that the suspect (Miguel Ángel Panadero) went to trial facing the government as the main prosecutor, and facing Grau's family and civil organizations as third-party prosecutors. I found this source that gives an overview of the law. It might be good to add it as a footnote, or to create a new article (Spanish Wikipedia has one for it already).
I hope this helps clarify. Please reach out if you have any questions – happy to help! Cheers, MX () 15:08, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
Ah, I thought there was something like that involved, and your term "third-party" prosecutors makes it clearer. I'm presuming, then, that Spanish law also allows co-accusations not just from individuals, but also from organisations such as the political ones involved in that trial, which were clearly milking the death of an unknown for every political drop they could? This makes more sense now. I couldn't find any information at all on the details here on WP (at least not in the English WP) and oddly enough, nothing online. One site gave some information regarding rights of representation, etc., but none of these specifics. Of course, English doesn't seem to have any direct translations for those terms, so if I use "third-party accusations", is that accurate enough? And for "integrated"? I'm not sure if that's quite the right term here. Perhaps "combined" or even "composite" might be better?
Many thanks for getting back to me about this. It's helped to clear some of the mystery up Face-smile.svg If you like, we can move the discussion over to the article's talk page and then this information is available to other editors. Also, how do you feel about working up an article on Spanish law for English WP, or just translating the existing? Unfortunately I'm not going to be much help except for copy edit and final polish, since the information's lacking in English articles or sites. But I'm happy to add that to my to-do list and polish it once you have something you're happy with. Otherwise I did stumble across a page to request new articles, we could just put it up there for another editor. I'll probably have some other questions, I can direct them to the talk page as well.
Thanks again!
Cadar (talk) 16:49, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @Cadar: Yes, associations/companies can also act as third-party prosecutors (but not "groups", though I'm not sure what the distinction is. It might just be a that it has to be an "official" organization). This source here translates acusación popular to "third-party prosecution", so feel free to use "third-party". In my opinion, the literal translation would be "popular accusation/prosecution", but this term doesn't explain the law as good as mentioning "third-party". For integrado, I would use "composed of", "made up of", "consists of", etc. That is the literal translation for it in Spanish given the context. Now, for future reference, I'd recommend you use Linguee instead of Google Translate if you aren't using it. Linguee gives you a specific phrase across multiple sources, since words can vary depending on the context. I use it when I want to read sources in languages I'm not familiar with (especially in law, when the terms can be very specific).
I'll be more than happy to create an article for this law. Right now I'm out of town and won't be back till Sunday, but I'll try to get to it once I'm done with a draft I'm working on. The best source for this law is probably this book here. It's only available in Spain, but I'll try to request it via an interlibrary loan and see if I can get a hold of it. If not, I'll just add it under "Further reading" once I create the article. Please feel free to move this discussion, and let me know if you have any questions. MX () 17:52, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
OK, I've copied the content there, we can confine discussion regarding the article to that page. I pinged you to keep you in the loop.
No rush regarding the new article. I've got a full to-do list myself, so I can keep myself well occupied and out of trouble in the meantime Face-smile.svg
Thanks for the Linguee link! I'm going to bookmark that one and add it to my list of online tools. If I find good value in it, I might even set up a search directly from my browser to simplify using it.
Cadar (talk) 18:33, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
Hi again, MX: just to let you know, the article is finalised, with the exception of "citation needed" templates for references explaining the differences between "reclusión menor" and "reclusión mayor". Otherwise, the copy edit is completed.
Thanks for the help Face-smile.svg Let me know when you need my input on the Spanish law article.

Zorro (1990 TV series)[edit]

The "Devil's Fortress" was a famous penal colony for enemies of the state, located in Baja California, on the borders of Mexico, during the Spanish domination, which became a horrible prison at the end of the 18th century, originally built to defend the Spanish Empire. Had there really been a penal colony in California during that time, and above all which building did the production use to shoot the footage in episodes 22-23 of the second season? --79.16.239.200 13:46, 4 July 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.16.239.200 (talk)

Description of a diagram[edit]

I wanted to ask for advice about dealing with a "Citation needed" tag you added to IM 67118. The first of the two such tags you added is in the section "Description" and is placed immediately following a description of the diagram on the tablet. The original publication about the tablet by Baqir contains both a photographic image of the tablet, including the part with the diagram, and a pen-and-ink drawing of the tablet's content, again including the diagram. Unfortunately, Baqir's article contains no verbal description of the diagram. Would a reference to Baqir's article suffice, or do I need to find a source that describes the diagram in the same terms as I have described it? (Unfortunately, I do not know of any such source at the moment.) I do hope that any reader who clicks on the link to the CDLI entry for IM 67118 under "External links" will agree that I have described the diagram accurately. (The reader should see Baqir's diagram when the page loads; a copy of his photograph, which, unfortunately, is a poor reproduction of what is in the paper journal, can be viewed by clicking on "View detail image". I have not been able to locate any image of the tablet with a license that would allow it to be incorporated in the article.)

I was also wondering whether the "Citation needed" referred back to some of the earlier sentences in the same paragraph? There are assertions about the language and script, and about the number of lines of text on each side of the tablet. That the language was Akkadian is strongly implied by a statement of Friberg, which the article already cites in the first paragraph of "Relation to other texts". The number of lines is strongly implied by the numbering on Baqir's drawing and by the numbering of the transcribed and translated lines in some of the other sources cited. (The translation is reproduced in the article.) I have not found any source for the statement that the writing is cuneiform, although it should be easy to find numerous sources stating that cuneiform was the generally-used script during the era in which this tablet was produced; some readers will be able to verify this by looking at the photograph.

I think I know what your issue is with the second "Citation needed" tag, but if you are willing to comment on that one as well, that might be helpful. I have recently (for independent reasons) added footnote 1, which makes a similar assertion to that which was tagged, but with a figure of 2000 years instead of 1200—a case, I suspect, of bad rounding. I'm pretty sure I could turn up a source with a more accurate figure, but my preferred solution is to expand and reformulate the final sentence. Will Orrick (talk) 02:02, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

  • @Will Orrick: Thank you for coming to my talkpage. Sorry for the late response. Lots of stuff going on outside of Wikipedia. Anyways, I get what you're saying now about the description. I think if you cite the diagram with a source (ideally the one from the external link) you should be fine. I added the "Citation needed" tag because I didn't want readers to think the description was original research. If you cite the source showing the diagram, readers can easily know you are describing it. We can't expect readers to "know" the description is in the external links. As for the second tag, the "is shown to have been discovered about 12 centuries before his birth." is an absolute statement of fact and requires a source. MX () 23:13, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Timeline of the Mexican Drug War[edit]

Dear MX, sorry that it has been a while since I've updated the Timeline of the Mexican Drug War article. I've recently been reading Borderland Beat in search of noteworthy entries to add, but to be honest it is quite overwhelming (and a bit depressing) how much stuff happens on the daily relating to the Mexican war on drugs. Since this is a subject you are experienced in, besides having separate article for the deaths of politicians and journalists, if there were any other filters you'd recommend for adding to the Timeline of the Mexican Drug War article. Inter&anthro (talk) 03:59, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

  • @Inter&anthro: Hi, thanks for reaching out. Any of the following would be great for inclusion: massive prison breaks, mass murders (though I'm uncertain about the threshold of death tolls – mass murders with over 10+ dead are now somewhat rare in Mexico), high-profile arrests/extraditions/releases, laws enacted that could potentially impact the conflict (if any), among others. I think you've done a great job keeping the new and relevant information in the timeline. Borderland Beat has been pretty good about reporting what's going on in Mexico ever since the page started; I also keep an eye on the page's forum, where users post stories that not always make it to the front page but can be equally interesting or newsworthy. I've been pretty bad about posting in the timeline since I'm working on Gulf Cartel bios from the 1900s–early 2000s, so I really appreciate the efforts you've done. MX () 13:12, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Landin's attorney, Oscar Alvarez, asked each state witness if they had seen Landin commit a crime or even seen him outside of court. The answer was a consistent 'No.' ...

  • @Willbb234: Thanks for stopping by. Source reads: A convicted middle manager of a Mexican drug cartel has reached agreement with federal prosecutors to keep the fight over two pieces of confiscated jewelry from going to a jury ... Possibilities would be auctioning the 24-inch 14-karat gold chain and pendant of the patron St. Jude [and the] 10-karat gold studded with 128 diamonds, 36 emeralds and one ruby, and dividing the proceeds or the simpler 'you keep one, we keep one'...

Zeferino Peña Cuéllar[edit]

I was looking at this DYK, thinking of reviewing it. But it seems to me that you are missing the potentially most hooky hooks. Would something like " ... former police chief Zeferino Peña Cuéllar became a high ranking enforcer for a Mexican drug cartel before retiring with his fortune?" not get the attention better? Just a thought. Gog the Mild (talk) 20:00, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

  • @Gog the Mild: Chances are that hook would be flagged for BLP violations since Mr. Peña Cuéllar is a suspected drug lord. He's a fugitive, but since he hasn't been convicted, we have to be really careful about negatively portraying him on the Main Page. That's the feedback I've received over the years from several DYK admins. MX () 21:04, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

Assistance[edit]

Hello. I'm a frequent editor of List of unlawfully killed transgender people. I was referred to you by the Wikipedia IRC Help channel. Recently <10 edit count editor added some cited sources to the Mexico section of the list. The citations are all in Spanish. Given my lack of Spanish ability and knowledge of Mexican sources, I was wondering if you could examine and validate if the sources are reliable and the editor's understanding of them correct.

  • @Gwenhope: Thanks for coming to my talkpage. Yes, all the info is cited with reliable sources (they are from local newspapers with editorial oversight, and some are newspapers owned by the Organización Editorial Mexicana). The info in the article is accurate too. Seems like we have a new editor who gets it! If I were you, I would reach out to thank him and see if he has more info about Mexico.

Question re editing of "Disappearance of Federico Tobares"[edit]

Hello MX,

Thanks for your patience and good replies to my review of Disappearance of Federico Tobares. Before asking your opinion about a change I am considering, may I ask if you had any personal connection with Mr Tobares?

Regards

Chidgk1 (talk) 06:36, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

  • @Chidgk1: Hi, thanks for coming to my talkpage. Answer: No. My interest in Mr. Tobares comes from my creation of several articles about the CJNG, essentially every article here. I stumbled across his sources when researching about the González Valencia siblings. I specialize in Mexican organized crime. Please make the changes you deem fit for promotion. Thanks for your help. MX () 14:25, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

I was wondering what you think about changing "suspected kidnapping" in the lead paragraph to "suspected killing" but I thought I would ask here just in case friends and family read the talk page and might be upset. Chidgk1 (talk) 06:02, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

  • @Chidgk1: Technically and legally speaking, Tobares' case is being led as a "disappearance" case. Since there has been no ruling on a murder, we have to be really careful about adding this word in the article. We would have to find a source that confirms his murder, or that the approach from authorities in this search has changed, otherwise it would be WP:OR. "Disappearance" is what sources use (i.e. desaparecido, desaparición). It's tricky, because in Mexico there is a clear distinction between "kidnapping" and "disappearance"; someone who disappearaces simply vanishes (like Tobares), while a kidnapping is usually ruled when we have direct evidence of a forced abduction (i.e. a video showing men taking Tobares, witnesses claiming they saw something like that, or detainees who confess about a forced abduction – all which we don't have in this case).

Quid pro quo?[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you've got several articles nominated at GAN in the law category. I have one there myself: Bobby Bostic. I was wondering if you'd like to exchange reviews? If you review my nomination I'll happily review one of yours. No worries if you're not interested or too busy though. If you are interested either leave me a message of just initiate the review of my nomination. Have a nice day. :) Damien Linnane (talk) 14:53, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Not a good idea, reviewers are independent Atlantic306 (talk) 21:01, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
  • @Atlantic306: I couldn't disagree more strongly. I've reviewed 130 GANs. I'd say almost half of them have been quid pro quo trades as the typical waiting time for an 'independent' reviewer is several months. Not once have I ever expected the person I am trading reviews with the just pass my nomination; I want the article to be better so constructive criticism is encouraged. You're the first person to ever complain to me about it. Quite frankly I think trading reviews is a cornerstone of making sure anything gets done on Wikipedia; I've been doing it for many years and will continue to do so. Are you aware there's an official quid pro quo policy at DYK? Damien Linnane (talk) 23:05, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
    • Well, independent reviews are surely preferred to trading reviews. I'm an AFC and NPP reviewer and if I traded reviews i'd get blocked pretty quickly. If it's become customary perhaps it's time for an RFC, regards Atlantic306 (talk) 23:18, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I don't disagree waiting for an independent review is better, I just don't see the harm in trading with an established editor, especially considering how long the waiting times are. An official ban on the practice will only result in increasing the already substantial backlog. Damien Linnane (talk) 23:38, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Cross-namespace redirects[edit]

Hello,

I was looking into cross-namespace redirects and came across a number of them in your userspace (see Special:PrefixIndex/User:MX/). My compliments on your quality work on so many articles related to the Mexican Drug War. I was wondering, though, do you find these redirects to be useful? If not, I can speedily delete them as they are not linked from anywhere and the move is recorded in the page history of each article.

It's not an issue either way but I'd appreciate your response. Thanks, -- Black Falcon (talk) 22:01, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

  • @Black Falcon: Thanks for reaching out. Yes, please delete all the redirects. I no longer use them. If I had the ability to delete them on the spot I would. I will request speedy deletion for redirects like these moving forward. Regards, MX () 14:11, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
    • Doing... Thanks for your quick response, I will clean up the redirects within the next day or so. I noticed that some of the redirects have a more substantial page history and will leave those. For the future, if you do not wish to retain these redirects, you can uncheck the box "Leave a redirect behind" to suppress the creation of a redirect.

Hi there, MX, and thanks for adding your fascinating article on Idalia Ramos Rangel to the list of new stubs on our Stub contest page.

Hello again. I've completed the copy edit of Raúl Alberto Trejo Benavides. A couple of questions/suggestions for clarity:
The section "Investigation and reactions" begins, "Trejo Benavides' body was found at 3:00 p.m.". I presume that means either on the same day or the day after the attack took place. It might be good to specify, if that information is given in the source.
The associated note ("b") also begins, "The article suggests that...". Because the article is described after that point, it might be better either to specify "The article in [newspaper]" or else say "The newspaper report suggests that..".
I enjoyed copy editing the article, and have accepted your other WP:GOCE/REQ request for Idalia Ramos Rangel. - FiveFaintFootprints (talk) 15:41, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
