Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you are involved. The thread is located at The Banner. Thank you. North America1000 12:27, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Too bad for you. The Banner talk 12:53, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
I closed the discussion. You may be surprised that one option I considered in this close was an immediate indefinite block, but I don't believe there is consensus for this yet. However, this is a final warning due to a persistent battleground mentality after years of similar behaviour and repeated blocks and warnings. If you do not abide by these conditions, I believe that any admin will be justified in imposing an indef block without further warnings:
1. Topic ban from pageants for three months, starting today. No discussion of pageants or discussion of the editing of others about pageants;
2. No comments about other editors' behavioural issues, including their motivations (COI) or conduct, on article talk pages or other venues apart from those users' talk pages and appropriate noticeboard, i.e. no more casting aspersions;
3. Remain civil at all times. Please read WP:CIVIL carefully. You once commented "I'm just a rude guy" - I don't know if that was sarcastic or truthful, but from now you need to not be rude to other editors;
4. Respect consensus of the outcome of deletion discussions and other discussions - no redirecting when the outcone was merge, no merging when the outcome was keep;
5. All deletion nominations need to follow WP:BEFORE. Deletion nominations of many similar articles or templates must be preceded by a discussion and be done as a bulk nomination;
6. Follow WP:1RR on all articles and templates. Fences&Windows 12:32, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
I will respect your decision but do not agree with it. Especially 4 and 5 are harsh, as they are very vulnerable to the way you look at it. At four: what is relevant info to merge? And at five: what is considered properly following WP:BEFORE? In fact, WP:BEFORE is asking an editor to clean up and improve even the most dodgy article before sending it to AfD...
But I will abide your decision. The Banner talk 17:41, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

July 2016[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Template:Michelin stars in Drenthe, Netherlands. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing. Softlavender (talk) 12:06, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

For your information: what I did was filling the row and changed all other templates in this series accordingly. So I have solved the issue of the empty rows. The Banner talk 12:14, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

List of former populated places in Croatia[edit]

I have created this article in the first place few years ago, and it's to primitive for 2016. so I made it better. In the next few years all of red links will have articles so don't worry about that, I have put six different external links, two of them are from Državni zavod za statistiku which have all of these villages in list. Here they are: first one, second one and four others. If you want to do something useful for your world, please, create new, better articles and don't hate other people and nations. Croatia is my country and you can cooperate, but please don't be an idiot. Thank you! --BrunoMed (talk) 15:09, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

I do not hate you, I do not hate Croatia but I do hate very bad articles. The massive list of red links are just soso. The problem are the 85 different links to disambiguation pages. All without information to identify them. Instead of being critical about me, you better start looking at the quality of your work and fix those links to disambiguation pages.
And please, we are trying to work together. Do not use any personal attacks. The Banner talk 15:23, 11 July 2016 (UTC)


I am truly apologizing form my rude, childish behavior. I worked hours on that page. I am trying to do something that can help Wikipedia and other users, although I do the opposite, not on purpose. Once again, I am truly apologizing for all my bad actions, I promise it won′t happen again. --BrunoMed (talk) 09:39, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Apology accepted.
I advice you to take a look at Wikipedia:WPCleaner, a tool used to solve links to disambiguation pages. It works on 1 article at a time. Using it of my own articles and draft articles, it gave my quite a few nasty surprises but I could fix them before they came into the open. It is, in my opinion, a very helpful tool!
Good luck! The Banner talk 09:48, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Friendly suggestion[edit]

In future, please make sure to explain why you're reverting someone in the edit summary when the person you're reverting explained why they made that change. Thanks. FabulousFerd (talk) 20:59, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

I noted that the info you had removed was relevant and not just a filler. When you disagree, discuss it on the talk page. The Banner talk 21:02, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Ow, and please note the you breached the Discretionary Sanctions on the Donald Trump article that stated that there is a 1RR (1 revert per 24 hour) in place and that challenged edits have to be discussed on the talk page. The Banner talk 21:14, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Ring, County Waterford[edit]

I did not add a false source. A two sources, one to show that the correct name for the three electoral divisions in question is indeed An Rinn, Baile Mhac Airt and Aird Mhór, and the other for the figures given for 2014. Please stop introducing inaccuracy into the article by reverting it to the incorrect ED names and removing the citation for the 2014 figure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:28, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Your source was false, as it does not contain figures about 2014, something you claimed by using it as source for 2014-figures.. The Banner talk 16:31, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

In added two sources for two different purposes. One source to verify that the Electoral Divisions are correctly called An Rinn, Baile Mhac Airt and Aird Mhór. The other contained the figures about 2014. Please stop introducing inaccuracy into the article by reverting it to the incorrect ED names and removing the citation for the 2014 figure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:35, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Do you really think that a pdf named "Nuachonrú ar an Staidéar Cuimsitheach Teangeolaíoch ar Úsáid na Gaeilge sa Ghaeltacht: 2006–2011" also covers 2014? Come on! I checked that source and there are no numbers for Ring/An Rinn. Not for 2007 and not for 2014. The Banner talk 16:40, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

The report was published in 2014, and that report is where those figures came from. In 2007 a comprehensive linguistic study or the Gaeltacht was published, that is where the fist figure comes from. In 2014 an update of that review was published and that is where the second figure comes from. The year 2014 in the article referes to the year that the report was published. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:50, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

But it contains not the figures of 2014... The Banner talk 16:53, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

There have been two major reports on the use of Irish in the Gaeltacht, one in 2007 and the other in 2014. 2014 refers to the year of the report. The report itself is given as a citation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:57, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

BUT IT DOES NOT CONTAIN THE FIGURES OF 2014! Do you read that badly? The Banner talk 17:19, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

My ability to read is just fine thank you very much. It seems to be yourself that is displaying a batelfield mentality and POV pushing. As I said previously the year 2014 refers to year the report was published. As does the year 2007 in the case of the previous report. The article could be changed to reflect the 2002 census and the 2011 census if you are that obsessed, it would ultimatly be the same thing, but would replace a secondary source with a primary source and that would be counter to WP guidelines. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:33, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Sigh, you really don't understand. The Banner talk 18:13, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
See WP:IMOS: "Where the English- and Irish-language names are the same or very nearly the same, but the spellings differ, use the English spelling."
See: WP:COMMONNAME "Wikipedia prefers the name that is most commonly used (as determined by its prevalence in reliable English-language sources)". And check it out: Ring is far more often used than An Rinn.
The Banner talk 18:21, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Ow, and can you give the page number where I can find the 2014 percentage about Ring/An Winn in your pdf? The Banner talk 18:30, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
