In addition to the explanations I provided earlier, which you have blanked from your page, I will point out the following:
- There is a clear note at the beginning of the Day article which states "please do not change to 1924 without discussing on talk page" so your actions surpass mere boldness.
- On the Day talk page, several requests to change the year back to 1924 have been denied or reverted as 1922 is now largely accepted.
Please seek consensus before changing the year back. There are citations and footnotes providing both years (as you suggested we should use in the lede) and explaining the circumstances whereby the accepted year (1924) is suspect. Quis separabit? 20:29, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
It's already been discussed enough without me adding more to the conversation. What I picked up was that you are the only one who actually says 1922, most others seem to agree that it's 1924 and gave up because you are too relentless. Not to mention every other major site biography.com, doris day's website, IMDB say 1924. I believe it needs to stay consistent. As far as footnotes that's fine, but anyone simply looking up the year of birth of Doris Day is being fed potentially wrong information. I don't want to fight you about it, but to say there is a consensus that 1922 is her birth year is false, and in my opinion, and the opinion of many other users 1924 makes more sense to use. Also, you pointed to the 1940 census, but her excuse that she lied to perform is more than acceptable, but in 1930 it wouldn't make sense. I couldn't even find the 1930 census on ancestry, so I'm not sure where people are even getting that.
