2016 Donald Trump Chicago rally protest[edit]

Can you clean up the quoting issue? I want the article promoted to DYK. --George Ho (talk) 22:07, 27 April 2016 (UTC)


What you want and what you get are sometimes two different things. "i'm not sayin, i'm just saying" Buster Seven Talk 23:54, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
I haven't been involved on that article - but I assume you're referring to the tag at the top indicating that there are too many quotes? I can certainly try to take a look, but no promises. A quick perusal of the article shows that a number of quotes, but not a number that seems to me to be per se excessive. The quotes are from a wide variety of individuals, which is less problematic than block quotes all from the same source or a handful of sources. Neutralitytalk 01:29, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

DYK protection request[edit]

I maintain the modules that implement {{convert}} and want to update them (details here). The modules are currently cascade-protected. I think the only reason is a convert in {{Did you know}} which includes:

that the '''[[caracal]]''' ''(pictured)'' can leap more than {{convert|3|m|ft|sigfig=1}} in the air

Would you please replace the convert with the equivalent text: 3 metres (10 ft)

I can then update the modules. Thanks. Johnuniq (talk) 01:40, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of mayors of San Bernardino, California[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of mayors of San Bernardino, California has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails GNG and LISTN, no significant coverage as a group or set

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Look closely[edit]

Either 2 things are possible.

Wikipedia is wrong.

News reporters are idiots and you should have your eyes checked.

I vote that Wikipedia is right.

Look at Oldsmobile Aurora. Then look at Philando Castile's car. It is obviously not an Aurora. Look at Oldsmobile 88, 10th generation. That is the car.

Mayor P Boyd (talk) 06:18, 12 July 2016 (UTC) FYI

1998–1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight
Oldsmobile driven by Philando Castile, whose killing led to a sniper attack in Dallas, TX, USA in 2016.
Oldsmobile Aurora

Look at the grille

Look at the rear door window

Look at the general shape

There is no need to mention Philando Castile himself in the Oldsmobile article. He had no bearing on the vehicle's history whatsoever. Parsley Man (talk) 14:42, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree with Parsley Man. This is rank original research in any case, and it is totally irrelevant to the history of the make and model of car. Neutralitytalk 14:44, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Protection of University of Northern New Jersey[edit]

Hi Neutrality, I just wanted to make sure you intended to apply extended confirmed protection to this page. Currently extended confirmed protection can only be applied in accordance with an arbitration or community consensus. It appears that you applied the protection based solely on the edits of User:Daniel199109, generally problems with one editor are deal with reports (to either WP:AIV or WP:ANEW) and then a block. Would you consider unprotecting the page (or changing to semi) and dealing with the one user with warnings and a report? Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 09:27, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Suggested edits for Hilary Rosen[edit]

Hello! A couple weeks ago I posted a suggested edit to the Hilary Rosen talk page, specifically proposing an expansion of the Early life section, based on reliable sources I've provided. Since no one has yet responded, nor at the couple of wikiprojects I've posted to, and I see from the article history you've edited it recently, I figured I would ask. FWIW, I have a financial conflict of interest and prefer not to edit directly; my fuller disclosure and more details about what I think is wrong with the current article is here. Thanks for your consideration, and let me know if you have any questions. Cheers, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 11:35, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Was that what you meant?[edit]

Hi, Neutrality! At the article Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Billboard of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz you said "Redirect is unnecessary as this would be be a common search term." Is that what you meant to say, or should there be a "not" in there? --MelanieN (talk) 20:58, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

@MelanieN:: We are (for article history purposes), but if the content is already at the target article and no material is actually merged, then a redirect isn't required. Neutralitytalk 21:07, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Hilary Rosen[edit]

Hi there, thanks again for helping with the Hilary Rosen article recently. As you may have seen, I posted a follow-up note two weeks ago to see if you'd be willing to look at my second proposed update. Knowing you're likely busy with other things, I took the same request to a few different wikiprojects: Politics, Biography, and LGBT studies. Alas, no reply one way or the other, from any of them. If you'd be willing to look at my new suggestion, I'd be grateful. If you're too busy, I'll understand if you just say so. And if you have other suggestions for a venue or editor who may be helpful, hope you can share that as well. Best, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 18:10, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Good news, the above request was eventually considered and implemented. Alas, there's still a few sections to go, and last week I posted a new request. If you're willing to review another one, I'd certainly appreciate it. Best, WWB Too (Talk · COI) 21:10, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

We noticed though that when you edited Military activity of ISIL, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The National (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I see[edit]

excellent bias from you. unless you give this advice to everyone, how about you shut up? thanks. 174.19.224.236 (talk) 14:48, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Then explain to me what the difference is between " ludicrous rationales" and "moronic reasons"-- if you cannot do that, shut up. thanks. 174.19.224.236 (talk) 14:53, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Khan revert[edit]

Um, pardon me. "misrepresents the sources" ?? Just what might this mean and explain how citing the NY Times, US News, and NBC News "misrepresents" them.

Actually, this part of the article IS VERY MUCH on the constitutionality of Trump's policy! Khan's waving around of his pocket constitution immedediately following his attack on the "muslim ban" would recommend to any ordinary thinking person that Khan is imputing that the ban is unconstitutional. Can we not see the connection here?

I will revert back before end of day, and if you want to make a fight of it then we'll go to mediation. This ain't gonna get kept out of the public record as are so many other subjects pertaining to the campaign.Wikkileaker (talk) 17:10, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm responded on the article talk page. As I explain there, the text you inserted in inaccurate and distorts the cited sources. Do not restore this content without firm consensus (see also WP:BLP). I would also suggest toning down the language. Neutralitytalk 17:14, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Rothschild family[edit]

Well, how do you classify the conspiracy theory about the House Rothschild as "fringe"? There are hundreds of books about the subject and indeed many people believe that. It is not fringe, and believe me, I am not trying to use Wikipedia to make this conspiracy theory seem larger than it is; I clearly state (and so does the source) that this is indeed a conspiracy theory that some people believe. Now I am beginning to feel as though you do not want this mentioned in the article for whatever own political reasons that you have. And that, I would claim, is defending a fringe view. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PanKaycke (talkcontribs) 03:41, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

PanKaycke: The article already mentions the conspiracy theories via citations to academic literature in the like. We don't need to add direct links to fringe sources. See WP:FRINGE, WP:WEIGHT. Neutralitytalk 03:44, 25 August 2016 (UTC)


Neutrality: So do I correctly understand that the problem is exclusively in the source I provided? Then it's no problem, I'll find a more presentable one then xD — Preceding unsigned comment added by PanKaycke (talkcontribs) 10:35, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. Since you've edited the University of Michigan article, I was wondering if you'd be able to help me with a question. Would something like this be more suitable for a user's sandbox instead of the article's talk page? This is just a list and IMO, a list for Bluedudemi to use for future reference... assuming they actually create those articles. It's cluttering up the talk page. Thoughts? Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:29, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

@Corkythehornetfan:: Thanks for the question. Usually such a list would go on an editors' userpage or personal sandbox, or on the talk page of a more specifically relevant article (Talk:List of University of Michigan alumni), or on a Wikiproject page. But it's not a violation of the talk page guidelines as I read it, since it's related to article improvement, albeit loosely. Neutralitytalk 04:37, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Alrighty, thanks! I'm not too good with guidelines... I just know the ones I need to know for the areas I edit in. lol Maybe I can try and convince them to move it to one of their subpages, as another user has agreed that it's a bit cluttery. If they don't want to, I'm fine with that since it doesn't break guidelines. I think it's worth a shot? Corkythehornetfan (ping me) 04:46, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I think it's perfectly fine to ask the original editor (as a courtesy) to move it to their userspace or the alumni list talk page. The other editor could decline, of course, but in all likelihood he/she will agree to it. Neutralitytalk 04:48, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

FAC voluntary mentoring scheme[edit]

During a recent lengthy discussion on the WP:FAC talkpage, several ideas were put forward as to how this procedure could be improved, particularly in making it more user-friendly towards first-time nominees. The promotion rate for first-timers at FAC is depressingly low – around 16 percent – which is a cause for concern. To help remedy this, Mike Christie and I, with the co-operation of the FAC coordinators, have devised a voluntary mentoring scheme, in which newcomers will guided by more experienced editors through the stages of preparation and submission of their articles. The general format of the scheme is explained in more detail on Wikipedia: Mentoring for FAC, which also includes a list of editors who have indicated that they are prepared to act as mentors.

Would you be prepared to take on this role occasionally? If so, please add your name to the list. By doing so you incur no obligation; it will be entirely for you to decide how often and on which articles you want to act in this capacity. We anticipate that the scheme will have a trial run for a few months before we appraise its effectiveness. Your participation will be most welcome. Brianboulton (talk) 21:26, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
