Prez Debates ref[edit]


   You added a needed reference to the article on the presidential debates commission, but you left the contention that the arrangement is controversial unsupported.  Does the book call it controversial?  If so, the maybe You could add a page ref. from the book to the end of the paragraph.  (I'm not disputing that it is controversial, since I personally am very much against it, but in Wik we are supposed to support such statements. What cheer, Kim

I was just quickly and surgically adding a reference to remove one {{when}}. It does bother me that there is a "controversy" statement in a section outside the "criticism" section. I would like to rewrite the whole article (except for the "criticism" section I've been working on) so that I can in good conscience remove the non-NPOV heading at the top.

Thanks; good work. --Orange Mike | Talk 15:38, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

United States federal government credit-rating downgrades[edit]

Great work on merging the 2011 and 2013 articles, and also on re-formatted the article into separate 2011, 2012, and 2013 sections. Gfcvoice (talk) 02:22, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Korean Air Lines Flight 007 shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

This WikiProject is in the process of being revived and is welcoming any and all editors who are willing to help out with the process. Add your name to the list at Wikipedia:WikiProject Microsoft/Participants and/or add the userbox {{User WikiProject Microsoft}}. Thanks! STJMLCC (talk) 19:52, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Your ADF edit[edit]

I haven't reverted it although there are several things wrong with it, but have taken it to WP:RSN#Using a court brief to back a claim that same-sex couples shouldn't adopt where I hope you will respond. Doug Weller (talk) 20:52, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Your revert at Castling was bad. WP:CITEVAR doesn't apply here. {{citation}} was already used in the article so replacing {{cite book}} is justified in unifying the citation style in the article. Also cite book doesn't work with {{harv}} (try it, click on one of the old cite book links to see). Quale (talk) 05:00, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Also I should have noted that {{citation}} vs. {{cite book}} doesn't qualify as a change in citation "style" (my language above was a little imprecise). They are both templates in the same series that render citations in the same style. Citation isn't any less precise than cite book. Cite book is a waste of time, since it offers no benefits over citation. I think it's largely a historical artifact before the fully general citation template was implemented, but I'm not an expert on the history of the citation templates. Citation is more modern and it works in combination with the harv templates by generating CITEREF anchors so the links work; cite book doesn't. Quale (talk) 05:06, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

LGM-30 Minuteman[edit]

Please don't restore material that is uncited. Either find sources for it or let it go. WP:V is the key principle here. --John (talk) 22:17, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
