Speedy deletion of Epistemic Circularity[edit]

I have not protested the speedy deletion because I do not think I wrote it very well. Could you edit it and make it easier to read? Also, if I'm contacting the wrong person, could you tell me who to contact?

Entro3.14 (talk) 20:25, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

The article seems to have been redirected. If you didn't write the article very well, why would you post it to Wikipedia? I can assure you the editors here are far less tolerant than your grade 9 English teacher. Magnolia677 (talk) 04:04, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Mount Holly (Foote, Mississippi) burnt down today[edit]

I thought it was vandalism, but it is true--I added a newspaper article. Very sad to hear that, even though I have never been to Mississippi!Zigzig20s (talk) 20:32, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

It may have been an accident--it is being investigated. I have started User:Zigzig20s/Charles Wilkins Dudley. I will create a page about his father shortly (a renowned physician). Feel free to expand the userpage if you find anything. FindAGrave is not a reliable source.Zigzig20s (talk) 23:00, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Do you think this is unreliable/unusuable? It has quite a lot of useful information, but it looks like it may be self-published. I thought I would get a second opinion. Btw, I've created his father, Benjamin Winslow Dudley, and I'm also working on User:Zigzig20s/Margaret Johnson Erwin.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:37, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
I've actually used that source before. It seemed pretty reliable. Magnolia677 (talk) 01:11, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

June 2015[edit]

I only correct incongruities between List of municipalities in Manitoba and List of municipalities in Ontario and every single municipality page, but if i can't please tell me, i leave two different datas in two different pages remain. Fabio8482 (talk) 08:24, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Consolidating datas of Canada Municipalities[edit]

I assume that the data reported in the table in every Canada province List of Municipalities page correct (source: http://www12.statcan.gc.ca/census-recensement/2011/dp-pd/hlt-fst/pd-pl/Table-Tableau.cfm?LANG=Eng&T=302&SR=1&S=51&O=A&RPP=9999&PR=59&CMA=0) and I consolidate in every single municipality data to make them identical in every page that speaks of the city. I compare every number and correct it if there is no correspondance. Fabio8482 (talk) 10:54, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your hard work. Please leave an edit summary so this may be avoided with other editors. Magnolia677 (talk) 10:59, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

John Patton Erwin[edit]

Hello. I was wondering if you could help me. Is it possible to transfer his portrait here to Wikimedia Commons? I don't know how to do it, and I never know if we can or not...I only upload the pictures I've taken myself to be sure. But I think it would improve his page. Btw, let me know if you are interested in and able to find enough info about "Thomas Yeatman (1828-1890), lawyer, Union officer, professor, and philanthropist, who lived and married in Paris, France, after the Civil War, mention topics of national and international politics. One scholar has suggested that Thomas Yeatman attempted to contract a reconciliation movement between the Union and Confederacy in 1863. When that movement, unpopular to Lincoln and the Republicans, failed, Yeatman left the United States. At a school which he and his wife Leonis Monoury later established in Paris". He sounds very interesting, but I can't find much at all... I hope you are interested in both topics. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 05:24, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

There may be portraits of him. Let me know what you can find. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 23:00, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Chatham, Mississippi[edit]

Can you find a history of this small town anywhere? Margaret's parents owned a plantation named "Chatham" in Washington County, so it is a safe bet that it was there. But I would need a reference.Zigzig20s (talk) 22:11, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. I will probably create a userpage to work from. I am working on Margaret now (who freed her slaves prior to the civil war btw) and I think her father needs a page, but not easy to find much about him. He was a large landowner and slaveholder apparently. Very useful and empowering to living descendants of slaves who may feel lost if we can find out more about him I think. Also, Major Matthew Flournoy, a lawyer who served in the Indian Creek War, may be notable...Zigzig20s (talk) 23:03, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
There may be some info about her father in this book, but I am not sure where to find it. Perhaps at the British Library. (I've just written to them asking if they have it or similar resources.)Zigzig20s (talk) 00:31, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
They replied and said they didn't have it.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:23, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
Can you please transfer this to Wikimedia Commons? I have started User:Zigzig20s/Sally Ward Lawrence Hunt Armstrong Downs (a cousin of Margaret's).Zigzig20s (talk) 02:59, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

Nello M. I wanted to let you know that you forgot to notify the editor that you mentioned here Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Block evasion by User talk:Futurewiki. I went ahead and left a message on their talk page. I know that you do a lot of good work in tracking vandals and socks here at WikiP and I did not want you to get in any hot water for not notifying them. Thanks for your vigilance and cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 22:28, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Shives, Arkansas[edit]

Can you please create Shives, Arkansas with some basic historical/geographical info and a map? I know you are gifted at retrieving arcane information about small towns. It is home to the Lakeport Plantation; I am working on User:Zigzig20s/Lycurgus Johnson (one of Margaret's cousins). Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 07:21, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Sunnyside Plantation[edit]

For your consideration: Sunnyside Plantation. It would be really nice if someone from Chicot County could take a picture of the historical marker. Not sure where it is precisely...maybe the visitor bureau would know.Zigzig20s (talk) 13:25, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Can you find anything at all about Naralia, Louisiana please? According to this article, it is in the Concordia Parish, Louisiana. But I can't find anything on google for some reason. Perhaps the community was renamed?Zigzig20s (talk) 21:43, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Reporting an editor[edit]

Hello. I will not mention their name but you warned an editor that you would report them for reverting contributions without summaries and not responding to your requests. I was wondering if you will be following up on this soon. That person reverts my edits even though I include citations from reliable sources and refuses to respond to me as well. If there's any way that I can help, please let me know. MrBlondNYC (talk) 20:04, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Map of the Black Warrior Basin[edit]

Would you be able to add a map of the Black Warrior Basin please? I am trying to improve the Drummond Company (and relevant pages about their owners), which needs a major clean-up, where you are more than welcome to help as well. They have a big thing going on in Tarrant, Alabama, which was nowhere in the article before I added it! Coal-mining is less sexy than plantations, but apparently it is a thing in AL. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 21:53, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Would you please move them? But I was hoping we could have an infobox with a "Wikipedia-type map" encircling the whole basin area. I know nothing about this except for the description on the Drummond Company website, "Located near the central portion of the Warrior Coal Basin in Alabama, Drummond’s Shoal Creek operation stretches across three counties – Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, and Walker. The mine’s main portal is in Walker County, while the preparation plant and production slope are situated in Jefferson County, approximately 45 miles from Birmingham. It has the distinction of being one of the largest underground facilities in the country." Zigzig20s (talk) 22:18, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Is there one particular map on one of the links that looks good? It's a bit of a process to extract and upload. Magnolia677 (talk) 22:22, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
I think we need to find a map of Alabama only (to make it less confusing), with the basin. I am not sure if the United States Department of Energy has one on their website...Zigzig20s (talk) 22:48, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
These were the only ones I could find that were public domain. I'll keep looking. Check out the pic on Cypress Grove Plantation. Magnolia677 (talk) 23:21, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Nice. I wonder who owns the land now.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:33, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
Btw. There is a Category:Drummond family for the aristocratic Scottish family, and I'd like to create another category for the Alabama business family, but I am not sure how to name it. What would you recommend please?Zigzig20s (talk) 02:41, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Portuguese People[edit]

"Moors are not a distinct or self-defined people.[5] Medieval and early modern Europeans variously applied the name to Arabs, Berbers, Muslim Europeans and Sub-Saharan Africans.[6]

The Moors came from Morocco and crossed the Strait of Gibraltar to reach the Iberian Peninsula. The Moors were initially of Arab and Berber descent at the time of the Umayyad conquest of Hispania in the early 8th century. Later the term covered people of mixed ancestry, and Iberian Christian converts to Islam (the Arabs called the latter Muwalladun or Muladi).[7][8]

Europeans have classified a number of associated ethnic groups as "Moors," and terms for this are found in their languages. In the modern Iberian Peninsula, "Moor" is sometimes colloquially used for any person from North Africa, but some people consider this use of the term pejorative."

@Me-123567-Me:

If you check the edit history of these articles, you will see that no editor on Wikipedia has added more joy, energy, heart, desire, fair play, harmony, good intent, and friendship. I've helped others experience rapture, and my edits have been modest. I'm disappointed you need more, and I won't edit a lucky boy for a while, though it's not the first time my edits have created a foul rift. Just keep in mind, no editor has added more love, love, love, love, love than me. Magnolia677 (talk) 22:25, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Re:University of Warsaw[edit]

Thank you so much for the appreciation of my edit. I always wondered what to do with that section including all the red, unnecessary links. The problem is that if we remove all the red links then we will be left with only a few proper articles about rectors and furthermore it would not follow the timeline properly (We'd have a 100 year gap between the names. Either we delete the entire section or perhaps we leave it as it is, but remove the hyperlink from the names and leave them unlinked. I'm sorry if it sounds confusing. If you have any questions please ask me. Also please feel free to add citations which are vital to long and highly-viewed articles.

NOR/no NOR[edit]

I just wrote a summary of the Environment Canada-sourced numbers so therefore your accusation of me making it up is not true. Every single word I wrote was true like Montreal having a sharper seasonal differential pattern than Toronto. Anyone who lives over in Canada knows that. I went over the data and verbally compared it. The difference is the clash between 'fundamentalists' who think every paragraph on the entire site should be sourced (and do not even check the quality and the very existance of those as long there is a note; not saying you are the latter) and 'pragmatists' that believe that there can be a few paragraphs here and there complementing the existing sources without it being original research. I would call it 'complementary information' and it depends on taste whether that is relevant or not but it does not go against NOR even though some may call is dubious. If I had said 'Toronto has a subtropical climate' or 'Winnipeg has a subarctic climate' it would have been OR because it contradicts existing sources. However I do understand there is a problem with dubious cases, but everything I wrote is supported by the data but not easy to find 'weather description touristic seasonal information' sites. May I also ask for some respect and not threats to block a very experienced and serious Wikipedian based on dubious cases where no vandalism was involved. I also wonder why you erased the links to the climate sourced pages of the Maritimes? Lastly, calm down some and assume good faith. It is fine to undo things you do not like but not to threaten blocking people acting in good faith. I just hope we can leave this behind and get on with it. After eight years on this and the Swedish Wiki I would never edit a page for vandalist purposes or with information contradicting existing sources. Have a nice day!

Lommaren (talk) 11:24, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Another problem that lies within comparing relevant large cities near to each other is that of course I can source temperature data from Montreal on Toronto's page, but the problem in that is 'the left hand does not know what the right is doing' and sees official sources to Montreal's climate on Toronto's page, then removes it with something like 'What the h*** has Montreal to do with this'? and that makes the relevant information disappear anyways.

Stop abuse[edit]

I said that summer temperatures are very constistent and then provided two sources for Gijón PROVING that is indeed the case. DOUBLE SOURCES after that to prove that is indeed the case. From the Spanish Bureau of Meteorology. Official website (http://www.aemet.es) too. Would you please stop going after me and under which authority do you act in this manner? Seriously. In addition you did not even remove the unsourced material previously in the paragraph either. Are you joking on me? You removed the only two sources in the paragraph. Please answer this time instead of acting like a downright coward when it comes to discussion. Stop following my every move as well. Why have you blacklisted me when there are thousands of real vandals to go after, well not me I am not with them. I thought you'd send a "thanks" to me for my edit since I doubled the sources and instead you say that you'll try to ban me. Stop it! You still haven't even replied to my previous post so just talk to me so we can resolve this waste of time-argument. That you will not seriously communicate with me is a serious breach of Wikipedia guidelines. How do you even know what happened last fall and under what authority do you take it upon yourself to declare yourself the community"?

American Civil War battle stubs for deletion[edit]

I also have just noted the myriad of probably non-notable stubs that have been thrown up recently and have put a similar comment to this on User talk:Clarityfiend. I have commented on three of the articles so far and have actually commented in favor of keeping Skirmish at Alderson's Distillery. Close call but I encourage you to look at my comment to see the reason. My guess is that I am likely to agree with you on most, and probably all, of the others from what I have seen of these so far. Even if a few of these articles are about notable engagements, it is not all that helpful for someone to throw up numerous, random one or two sentence stubs, with infoboxes that are not entirely accurate, in any event.

Bishop Strachan School[edit]

Hello, Magnolia 677. I'm not clear why you removed my addition of Linda Thorson to the Notable Alumni section of Bishop Strachan School, claiming it needed a reliable source. The addition did no more and no less than the names already in the entry - that is, link to the Wiki article on that person - none of which have citations. In fact, the sources of my information are Linda's official website reconfirmed in a personal message to me from her agent. I don't believe, however, that it would be appropriate to cite these. Wikipedia's policy on citations is as follows: "Wikipedia's Verifiability policy requires inline citations for any material challenged or likely to be challenged." Please remember Wikipedia's dispute resolution policy, which states that an editor shouldn't remove another editor's post without discussing with him or her first. You didn't do this. If I've misunderstood anything in your objection, please let me know, and I'll make it right if I can. Best regards (Cedric38~enwiki (talk) 08:36, 24 July 2015 (UTC)}

Linda Thorson[edit]

Thanks for your help, Magnolia 677. The addition of her school to the Linda Thorson article is an excellent addition. In Notable Alumni focusing exclusively on Linda's ancient role as Tara King isn't the route I'd have taken, but if there's no objection from her it's fine with me. Best regards (Cedric38~enwiki (talk) 06:13, 25 July 2015 (UTC))

(talk page stalker)Cedric38~enwiki, your comments here raise an interesting question: What is your connection with Ms.Thorsen? As long as things are proper sourced, her opinion of them is irrelevant. What exactly do you think Wikipedia is? John from Idegon (talk) 06:33, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Cedric38~enwiki had added this notable alumni as an "international actress". I thought mentioning her most noted acting role--as Tara King on The Avengers--would be welcomed. I couldn't imagine "Linda" not being proud of this fabulous role? Magnolia677 (talk) 12:55, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Washington, Mississippi[edit]

Hi, you reverted two changes I made to the Washington, Mississippi article with the comment "Removing unsourced content". The two changes were:

  • Mentioning that it was the second capital of the Mississippi Territory, which is already mentioned in the body of the article. If you dispute that it was the second capital, presumably you should also remove it in the body. But I believe that info is in the existing source Mississippi: A Guide to the Magnolia State; of course, this should be footnoted specifically.
  • Changing the wording from "The town of Washington's namesake is George Washington." to "The town was named for George Washington." The wording of the first is clumsy. The second is synonymous, just less clumsy. Or are you disputing that it was named for G. Washington? In which case the whole sentence should go.

Deleting Photo Collages/ Rude Comments[edit]

It's understandable if you disagree with how photo collages that I've worked on look, but it seems a bit of a low blow to delete them, and also leave comments like "they're over-colorized disasters" or "go experiment with Photoshop somewhere else". To be honest, the photos looked perfectly fine to me, and I certainly wasn't trying to experiment with weird colors.

There's no need to insult other Wikipedia users. I'm just trying to help improve the pages of the places I love.

For many of those photo collages, I took the photos myself and then made took the time to make what I deemed to be respectable and interesting collages. I hope you can understand it's a bit insulting to have them instantly deleted and then find rude comments as to why you deleted them.

Thanks! Ddogas (talk) 12:24, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I don't usually leave rude edit summaries. I found offensive that you would take several excellent photos--your own and others--ruin them in Photoshop, then add them to an article like Manhattan, which gets 75,547 views per month, without so much as a courtesy note on the talk page like "hey, look at my photo collage, what do y'all think? Should I replace the infobox photo with my creation?" Magnolia677 (talk) 20:38, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox school district[edit]

Most school districts in Massachusetts don't have wikipedia pages, but even if they did, the pages would only be stubs. That is why even though the template says that the infobox is intended for use in only school district articles, an exception should be made for school districts that don't have their own pages. Just about every Massachusetts town has its own section on education in the town, so it is or ought to be justifiable using the infobox there. - Jajhill (User talk section Template:Infobox school district) 19:17 UTC

I disagree. If you want to use the template in a way other than intended, please seek consensus amongst the community. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 20:08, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

How would I go about doing that? I created a new section on the talk page of Template:Infobox school district, but how would I create a large enough forum to discuss it? - Jajhill (talk) 22:35 UTC 18 August 2015

I made one small change and left this at the article's Talk page: "Thanks for your work on the article, "Magnolia.: I deleted the info regarding the alleged "slight" financial loss as it comes from CCA's own advice to stockholders, which is meant to put the best possible face on the corporation's operations, rather (than) from a reliable source."

Sarratt House[edit]

Do you think Sarratt House could have an article? It was de-listed and demolished. However, it seems fairly historic (but much of the info may be hard to find). I suspect it was the childhood home of Charles Madison Sarratt.Zigzig20s (talk) 08:52, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Also found this short article, but that's it so far. Not too sure who J.L. Sarratt was.Zigzig20s (talk) 08:54, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Lake Ontario Ordnance Works[edit]

The article Lake Ontario Ordnance Works you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Lake Ontario Ordnance Works for things which need to be addressed.

Baruch College citation[edit]

A few days ago you rightly put a "Citation needed" link on a reference to Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business being the largest school of business in the country. If you check the college's Talk page, you'll see that I've recommended deleting the sentence altogether. (It used to say "largest collegiate school of business".)

I'd welcome your attention to that and the other changes I've suggested under the WP:COI guidelines.

WP:OWN[edit]

Trying to WP:OWN articles does not make Wikipedia a happy place. This is a cooperative enterprise. Please allow others to edit articles you are interested in. We can all contribute to the encyclopedia. Hike The Monicas (talk) 22:44, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Correcting the errors you added to Santa Monica Mountains is not ownership. Please respond on the talk page there. Magnolia677 (talk) 22:46, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
Correcting mistakes is fine. Insisting that photos be on the right is a preference. Wiki markup language allows for placement of photos on the left, right, and center. Preference is not policy. Removing the work of others is not fine either. Hike The Monicas (talk) 23:11, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Your last edit on Lake County, Michigan[edit]

Regarding: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lake_County,_Michigan&oldid=678371807

Please can you tell me on what basis my edit is "unnecessary"? Why you should keep a falseness on this Wikipedia article? In this particular case, the fact that this statistical element is absolutely not sourced from the Huffington Post and that their very same article does not give any reference of this particular statement except for a link of the original article, posted by me but removed by you with a laconic "unnecessary". You didn't even thought to read the two articles and verify my edit, right? - ElSaxo (talk) 02:02, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

You are correct. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 02:11, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for looking over the "Yankee" edits. It helps to know that it's not just my imagination. 32.218.43.89 (talk) 22:26, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Category additions[edit]

Thank you for the comments regarding Category additions. The information originated from the Wiki page that lists the members. If something is incorrect, perhaps take a look at that Wiki page. Please explain the word 'unsorced' as I look in a dictionary and this word is not listed. Did you mean 'unsourced'? The additions you mention have been removed. Thank you again for your efforts.InfoDataMonger (talk) 23:58, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Please let me know, or direct me to the 'tool' or 'bot' you are using. This seems like a good item to have. InfoDataMonger (talk) 00:18, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure what tool you are talking about. You did not answer the question I asked on your talk page. While the edits in question are not vandalism, they are disruptive and will either need to be removed or sourced. Again, do you plan to remove them? Thank you.
