Disambiguation link notification for July 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Laptop, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Watts (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.

About a reverted edit[edit]

I changed the phrase "but Moe could not really deal with her being a little person" to "but Moe could not adjust to the difference in height" on the page for the Simpsons character Moe Szyslak, because the original sentence is ambiguous enough to imply that Moe finds Maya unattractive due to her size, which is not the case. On top of that, the original sentence conflicts with the tone of wikipedia, so even if my version is not used I believe it should not be left unchanged.

You are completely correct. That is the second time this has happened to me tonight, so I fully suspect it is my computer and not you (issue with the trackpad). I am going to hang up Huggle for the night until I can figure out what it going on. Your edit was certainly good! My apologies. Pax Verbum 03:10, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Request on 14:16:27, 22 July 2016 for assistance on AfC submission by Jovianliu[edit]


Hello Pax85, I'm the writer of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Codementor, thank you for your review! Regarding the article, one of the reason I made the article is that we found out that similar companies such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AirPair and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HackHands has an approved wiki page. Would you kindly point out in which part our source notability differs with them? I know that this argument is not too well acceptable in Wikipedia ("they have a page so we should have too"), but is it possible to let me know so maybe I could try to edit and re-submit? Thank you very much for your help!

Jovianliu (talk) 14:16, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jovianliu: Thanks for reaching out! Taking a quick glance at those other two articles, I would actually consider them borderline as well (and may in fact send them over to AfD after I take a closer look). But in your particular case, and I would say theirs as well, try adding some non-tech and financial sources. For example, I just found this one and this one and this one and maybe this one, but I am not sure since it is not in English. Once you've done this, let me know, and I will re-review the article. Also, take a look at WP:DISCLOSE and apply if needed...

11:46:47, 24 July 2016 review of submission by Hmm2015[edit]


Hi Pax85, thank you for your feedback for my article on Austrian pianist Cornelia Herrmann. I have completely re-written the article and have taken out the promotional or scheduling sources. I have also made it much shorter in order for it to sound less like a program biography and to focus on the aspects that underline her notability as a pianist in the music world (like international competitions or appearances in major venues with renowned partners).

Thank you. Hmm2015 (talk) 11:46, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

OK, we are getting there! I think she meets notability through her participation in the international competition and subsequent invites to others (see WP:MUSICBIO). BUT, after I looked on her webpage, I noted your article has a direct copy and paste from her website. The article must be in your own words. Can you fix this? On this page, there are excerpts from various newspapers. Can you find one or two of the articles? I like the reference from diepresse.com. If you use those newspaper articles, that will allow you to improve the article greatly as you move forward! For now though, definitely take care of that copyright issue and I or someone else (but probably me) will review it...-Pax Verbum 05:03, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Bible Conspiracy Theory[edit]

Hi Pax85, I saw you removed my edits and I don't fully understand why. If I wrote a page about nonsense on Wikipedia, it would surely be removed. So why then have a page about nonsense that is also offensive to Christians? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2604:2000:F986:1600:DD6:6116:4275:4059 (talk) 03:42, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

The page in question does not say whether or not the various theories are true; all it does is puts forth various Bible conspiracy theories. The page does not say, "The following theories are fact." Your edits remove information due to an obvious bias, and your edit summaries use language that is not appropriate and combative. As far as being offensive to Christians, this is an encyclopedia, a repository of all knowledge. Some knowledge is offensive to some people, whether Christian or otherwise; that does not mean that it should not be included in the encyclopedia. We cannot allow personal biases affect what is or is not included. It would be similar to deleting a page about the color red simply because our favorite color was blue.
All that said, I agree that the information you removed is, quite frankly, bogus. I am a theology student with a very traditional background, and I don't think they hold any sort of water. But, the article is on conspiracy theories, and those are indeed conspiracy theories, so they should be included. Cheers, and happy editing! -Pax Verbum 03:54, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

"Doods" on Taftan[edit]

About Taftan (volcano), I've readded the mention under the assumption that maybe you don't have access to the whole of page 16 here, where I took it from. Can you check that this is indeed the case? Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 10:14, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: It took me a while, but I was finally able to access the book. For some reason I had to search directly for the book, rather than following the link. In any case, I added a small clarification that the word is of local origin, but yes, I did find the reference. Thank you! -Pax Verbum 19:52, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

05:20:47, 26 August 2016 review of submission by Hmm2015[edit]



Hallo, thank you for your last comment regarding the article for pianist Cornelia Herrmann. I am sorry that it took me so long to fix this - I did not check on wikipedia directly and wrongly assumed that I would be notified by mail if there is a new comment. I fixed the copyright things now and hope that the article is ok now.

Thanks once again.

Hmm2015 (talk) 05:20, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi Hmm2015! Thank you for your note! Please be patient with me - I am currently in the middle of transitioning back to the U.S. after a three month language immersion in Mexico. Once I get settled back home (middle of next week) I will definitely take a look, if it hasn't been reviewed by someone else by then. There is also a strong chance I may look at it before then, I just can't make any promises. :) Cheers! -Pax Verbum 17:04, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

Hi Pax85,

thanks for your message. Don't worry, just take your time and have a look at it whenever you're ready. I have also included two more articles as you suggested. Hmm2015 (talk) 00:44, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
