Dear Murray[edit]

I am the person who recently deleted a line from your entry on the Provisional IRA:

'The United States includes them in the category of "other selected terrorist groups also deemed of relevance in the global war on terrorism"'


The source you quoted is the US State Department's Country Report on Terrorism. You have cited the (outdated)2004 report which included this section at the bottom. However this is not an official designation(unlike the FTO categorization),hence it was changed to "Other Groups of concern" in 2006 (http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/crt/2006/82738.htm) and removed completely from all subsequent reports(latest is http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/crt/2012/209989.htm). This is the reason I deleted the offending line. Perhaps if you modified it to use the past tense it would be acceptable. In any case, I was trying to help improve the accuracy of this entry and would appreciate it if you would be a little more courteous in future(calling someone a "quack" and questioning their grasp of English is offensive and unnecessary). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.71.202.123 (talk) 12:52, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Please can you stop editing/reverting personal information about Spouse, this was updated correctly. Thanks Eva & Ross — Preceding unsigned comment added by RonSpa (talkcontribs) 14:25, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Murray. You've done it again? Why? I don't understand why it's now incorrect and it's causing upset. If you want to keep your own version fine but can you do your research and get it right. Eva Birthistle — Preceding unsigned comment added by RonSpa (talkcontribs) 06:27, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Dublin Airport[edit]

Could you please stop editing Dublin Airport to say that it is located in Fingal as Fingal is not a county. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dobbs1996 (talkcontribs) 22:38, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Please help[edit]

Can you please help recreate my Antrim Forum article in a more notable fashion? Sorry about our big fight. This is what I have so far:

Antrim Forum

The Antrim Forum is a multi-purpose activity centre located in Antrim, Northern Ireland.[1] It opened in 1972 as the largest of its kind in Northern Ireland and still is to this day.[2] The Antrim Forum has been home to the Antrim Hockey Club since 1991.[3]During the 1980s it was a popular venue for concerts, hosting acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Meat Loaf, Dio, Status Quo and Metallica.[4]

References[edit]

I think you are failing to understand what makes a place/building/venue notable. Clear media coverage is one, not a list of where bands are preforming, or a mentioning in an article on a website or in a paper. This link here WP:GEOFEAT is the one that has to satisfied for buidlings
Buildings, including private residences and commercial developments can be notable as a result of their historic, social, economic, or architectural importance. They require significant coverage by reliable, third-party sources to establish notability
So you have to prove significant coverage by reliable, third-party sources to establish notability, for the article.
And one phrase you use in your message to me sticks out
"recreate my Antrim Forum article"
We may create articles on here, but we dont own them, there is no my.
BTW there was no big fight, we discussed from two different viewpoints, which is what is meant to happen.
Hope this info helps, but I cant see significant coverage of the topic still. If you find it add it here, and I will help you put forward an article for creation. Murry1975 (talk) 12:46, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Stop editing all my stuff what I put up ,it's like your stalking me,peil is not a word in Irish and what is with the gealic word after it ,it does not make sense in Ireland it' just football , you must be from the north football is soccer ,please I do not want to block you ,please I am not trying to be mean — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tupolevjet (talkcontribs) 22:37, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Free clue[edit]

At the top of my talk page, there is an infobox identifying me as one of the 400 most active Wikipedians and an admin. I reverted a spam link. I also blocked the spammer who inserted it. Guy (Help!) 21:11, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Euromillions edits[edit]

Hi there, I see that you have restored an edit that was added by Peterwilson69 on the Euromillions page. I consider that edit to be spam as the citation is to a website that sells Euromillions tickets.

I have raised this edit with the administrators after Peterwilson69 threatened to block me, this led to his edit being reverted and him being blocked by them as a spammer. Yet now you have restored his edit.

Please consider reversing your changes or else explain your reasoning here.

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.109.85.13 (talk) 21:19, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

See above, this is sorted, as I said by email. Worry not. Guy (Help!) 00:12, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

RIC[edit]

Just realised you did a revert of the IP as I was editing the section, so just a heads up that my edit sumary is directed at them. Do we need "armed" in the lede? I removed it as the following sentence mentions "unarmed" which to me implies the RIC was armed, as many police services are. I also don't think we need to state the partition in the first sentence as it is mentioned in the last sentence of the paragraph where it gets a little more explanation so think it's unneeded, should also stop the IP. Mabuska (talk) 11:58, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

The lead isnt great, I think mentioning it was armed is needed- I will re-jig it later. The IP seems alittle confused :$ Will get back later. Cheers bud. Murry1975 (talk) 12:03, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Smallest re-jig ever! I removed major and replaced it with armed. There was no minor police force, DMP where local to Dublin and that is mentioned. Murry1975 (talk) 12:35, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Help improve page[edit]

Hi, would really appreciate your help in reviewing the Law Society of Ireland page - I've made suggestions on how it can be improved on its Talk page but no one has come forward to do the necessary apart from some minor changes. Have also left a message on the WIkipedia Help page but no response. Hope you can help or suggest someone who can FriendlyuserCP (talk) 17:50, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Arklow Town AFD[edit]

The technical aspect of the close was fine - but unfortunately you cannot close while there remain valid 'delete' !votes. I would suggest you post a comment at the AFD stating you withdraw, then ping Fenix to advise him that you have done so because of new evidence of notability. If he changes his mind and !vote then you can re-close, if not then it will have to remain open I'm afraid. GiantSnowman 09:17, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Back2Basics[edit]

How come you deleted the information that I added? I amended it to adhere to Wiki's guidelines so that the language was neutral, there was no promo and that references were added to confirm each interview.

Antrim Forum now definitely notable with new content[edit]

Didn't you read the article? I added new content. "It has been approved by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) as an Olympic standard training facility". Please respond on my talk page. Evangp (talk) 20:34, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

WP:GNG, we dont use ads for notabilty. You are going to end up on ANI if you keep this up. Wasting time and space on here. Murry1975 (talk) 20:36, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Irish Free State map[edit]

The 1922 map is too small and its quality is horrible. And it's not even a 1922 map. It's a 1933 (1929-1938 to be more accurate) map just like the one I added. But the borders of Europe didn't really change between 1922 and 1938 so it doesn't really matter. The map I added shows the same thing, but it's bigger, has better quality and shows more than the old, small map. Look at the other pages. These kind of maps are not used anymore, it should have been changed already. --Emihunty (talk) 10:32, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

The old map is a 1922-1938 map and the one I added is also a 1922-38 map, since the borders of Europe didn't really change between 1922 and 1938. I just wrote 1933 on a whim. --Emihunty (talk) 12:11, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For undoing vandalism of my user page. --John (talk) 23:05, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm not doubting that; I was simply undoing the work of a long-term blocked editor, see Category:Suspected Wikipedia sockpuppets of Rovers Forever and WP:DENY. GiantSnowman 12:46, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

List of foreign Premier League players[edit]

Please do some research first before you undo others changes. Nick Proschwitz is now on loan to Championship side Barnsley and Marko Marin has left Chelsea last Summer for FC Sevilla. I also didn't delete Proschwitz, but put his name at the right position according to the alphabetical order. Please be more thoroughly when you edit articles. DrunkenGerman (talk) 20:01, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Marko Marin is still a Chelse player, on loan to Sevilla, still primary club Chelsea, so you do the research. Murry1975 (talk) 20:10, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Please do read the introduction and requirements of the article before you edit. The list is not about where a player is somehow signed. The list is about capped players. Only players which have been capped in 2013/14 are listed with a "–14" at the seasons. And only players capped in 2013–14 and currently being members of a Premier League squad are in bold. Really poor work by you. DrunkenGerman (talk) 20:19, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Nope you cant read right,
Note that seasons, not calendar years, are used. For example, "1992–95" indicates that the player has played in every season from 1992–93 to 1994–95, but not necessarily every calendar year from 1992 to 1995
In bold:players who have played at least one Premier League game in the current season (2013–14), and are still at the clubs for which they have played. This does not include current players of a Premier League club who have not played a Premier League game in the current season
In other words if is still signed to the club, and he is, he is listed as XXXX- still, but as he hasnt played this season you dont bold him.
In your way if he plays for Chelsea when his loan expires he is 2012-13 and 2013-14, yet the above says 2012-14. Murry1975 (talk) 20:26, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Marko Marin has played no game in the Premier League in 2013-14, only in 2012-13. Thus the correct entry is 2012-13. If he would play yet a Premier League game in 2013-14, the entry would be changed to 2012-14. Pretty simple principle....DrunkenGerman (talk) 20:33, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Can-Linn[edit]

Hi Murry, you undid my change in Can-Linn. Can means sing (imperative, 2nd person singular), linn means with us. So, why do you think "sing with us" is wrong and "to sing together" is correct? To sing together is canadh le chéile.
The cite in http://www.eurovision.tv/page/news?id=ireland_to_be_represented_by_kasey_smith is wrong. -- MacCambridge (talk) 17:24, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi MacCambridge, it mat be not correct but until one of us two finds a source to say otherwise we have to leave it. I presume it was a translation mix-up, I would say Irish to French or German and then back into English on the the part of Eurovision. Give me a day to try and find a correct translation in an article. Cheers. Murry1975 (talk) 17:55, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
A quick search isnt too helpful. Murry1975 (talk) 18:14, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, sorry to insist. ;) The best source for a translation is a good dictionary. The best Irish dictionaries (Ó Dónaill, de Bhaldraithe) are available online. Irish verb can: http://breis.focloir.ie/en/fgb/can (Irish verbs are cited in most dictionaries by their root form, i.e. 2nd person imperative singular, so can = sing! Here's the conjugation of that verb: http://breis.focloir.ie/en/gram/can Irish linn: http://breis.focloir.ie/en/fgb/le Linn is a pronominal form of le = with (see: http://breis.focloir.ie/en/gram/le) so linn = with us. -- MacCambridge (talk) 20:59, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

L/Derry[edit]

In this case WP:IMoS does not apply. It is a historic reference, same as Londonderry City parliamentary constituency. Snappy (talk) 19:38, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

What about Vehicle_registration_plates_of_the_United_Kingdom,_Crown_dependencies_and_overseas_territories#Northern_Ireland, are you going to change that too? Snappy (talk) 19:41, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
I pointed out another article, thought we might have a discussion about it, but first thing you do is go off and change. That's quite silly. We should probably take this to the naming dispute page and please leave any pages in their current state until the issue has been discussed. Snappy (talk) 19:46, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

(edit conflict)Done on the UK article, your example is wrong, as per WP:DERRY, Londonderry City parliamentary constituency is a specific entity and should be named as such. While linking to counties and cities we use Derry for the city, no matter when in history.

IMOS then Snappy? Murry1975 (talk) 19:48, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Imos and I left a note on the UK/NI reg page too. Also there was an act of parliament specifying each county/city and its code, the act said Londonderry City - IU, that is what is being referenced in these articles. Snappy (talk) 19:54, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately Snappy, another act states the name of the city as Londonderry not Derry. Murry1975 (talk) 20:15, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
You seem to be missing the point, we'll see what others say. Snappy (talk) 21:46, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Bog of Allen[edit]
