Your mistake[edit]

Yes, you did a mistake on Alejandro Amenábar's wiki page here's the references (in Spanish): http://www.blogdecine.com/frases-citas/frases-de-cine-18-de-septiembre-sobre-la-imagen-el-cine-espanol-los-referentes-y-la-violencia

Hi Racerx11, this is my first time attempting to edit the article on Burj Khalifa. While reading the article, I feel one piece of information can be added is the time all the previous buildings were built for comparison and to track the progress over time. If you can add those information, it will be great. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.42.1.106 (talk) 18:58, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

OK, at first your edits seemed like vandalism, but I saw what you were trying to do that second time. There are a couple pages that show what you are talking about: History of the tallest buildings in the world and Timeline of three tallest structures in the world. Personally I don't think that information should be inserted into the Burj Khalifa page. We link to other articles for that reason. For example, if someone wants to know how long Warsaw radio mast held its title, they can click on the link. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 19:12, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Grande Casse[edit]

Hi Racer quite a bit of work has gone into the Grande Casse article recently - is it possible it is no longer a stub? Would be delighted if it was moved up a class! Many thanks {{Huddsblue (talk) 07:53, 26 March 2015 (UTC)}}

I changed it to "start class". Wikipedia:WikiProject Mountains/Assessment. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 10:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Thankyou for the guidance[edit]

Bro first of all please explain to me what is a stub. And i accept your reverts but i have a question that why is mountains of nepal mentioned in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Everest. Gilgit baltistan is a province of Pakistan, i think country is to be added as k2 is representing Pakistan accross the globe and it is representing gilgit baltistan within the country. When mountains of tajikistan or nepal can be mentioned why is mountains of Pakistan unacceptable to you. Also most of these countries which have mountains have provinces and these mountains are in provinces so why their country is mentioned but not provinces?? Thankyou Saladin1987 19:38, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

@Saladin1987: Sure. A stub is a very short article, usually just a few sentences worth of content. It is the lowest ranking in the article quality scale. The idea of a stub is just to get a good foundation started for an article to grow from. There are rules-of-thumb to help in the gray area when an article ceases to be a stub and becomes something else, but most of the time it's just an "eye" test. After a while, one "knows" a stub when they see one ((stub example) and one knows a full article when they see it (K2 is rated "B class" for example). Please see WP:Stub.
As for categorization, we sub-categorize articles because if we didn't, some of the categories would be so enormous they would become too difficult and awkward to be useful. When an article is categorized to child sub-category or another category (political subdivision or a larger one) it is proper to only cat the sub-category and not the parent, lest we defeat the purpose of sub-catting in the first place. Category:Mountains of Germany is a good example of a huge category with thousands of pages, virtually all sub-catted under that parent of Mountains of Germany, yet there are only three pages that are directly categorized to Category:Mountains of Germany. Mount Everest is categorized under Category:Mountains of Nepal because Category:Mountains of Nepal has no sub-categories other than Category:Mount Everest. Eventually somebody will create political subdivision categories of Category:Mountains of Nepal and Mount Everest will be categorized in Category:Mountains of Sagarmatha Zone (or something smaller) and removed from Category:Mountains of Nepal; similar to how it is currently categorized under Category:Mountains of the Tibet Autonomous Region and not under Category:Mountains of China. See WP:Categorization for more.
Hope this clarifies everything. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 23:30, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Marhc[edit]

Hi Racer, seeing edits like this one make me happy because they mean I won't have to deal with this a-hole. :) Thanks for the super-fast response suppressing this vandal's edits! Nobody's ever told me if there's a long-term abuse report on this guy, but I've been keeping track of the disruptions I've experienced here. I call him the Marhc Vandal because (as you know) he often uses parenthetical edit summaries, and he often misspells March in these. If I can be of any help, lemme know. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 13:13, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: Hello. I've been calling him the "(2015)" vandal, but your name "Marhc Vandal" is good and maybe better. An a-hole by any other name... eh? I don't know of an LTA report as of yet. Let me know if you want me to take a more active role in monitoring his activities. Right now I have only a few of the vandal's targets watch-listed. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 21:57, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

A Barnstar for your efforts[edit]

A look at some of your work makes it clear that you deserve one of these:

Category:Landforms of Missouri[edit]

Sorry for the mistake on restoring the improper edit to the above article. I thought I was deleting it on Huggle. This was probably just a mistake but I think I will take a break since I just had another odd edit (probably vandalism by more than one person and I only caught the final one). Thanks for catching this. Donner60 (talk) 21:30, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, no problem. It looked like you just didn't revert back far enough. I've been guilty of the same thing myself at times. It can easily happen. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 21:35, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Why You are not undoing my edits regarding K2 native name[edit]

Also, maybe even a short mention of the dissatisfaction some local people have towards the modern name would be OK?

Its not about satisfaction or dssatisfaction. Its about k2 Naming history. If the old name of Istanbul is  Byzantium, Constantinople and Stamboul then it means dissatisfaction? No obviuously not. But its history. I am not vandalizing this article I am providing valid sources. Also in Urdu it is misspelled here. If u can read Urdu then you should know Chhoghori is written as چھوغوری not شاہگوری. I think you can't read Urdu therefore you are not understanding what I want to change. Its a matter of fact that British surveyors changed local names for masherbrum they used K1 for Chhoghori K2 and so on. But only K2 became famous due to its 2nd ranking in the world and the name used internationally.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anchan Balti (talkcontribs) 21:47, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@Anchan Balti: It's not just 'I'm reverting your edits', everyone is! The above comment you left is the kind of thing we have been asking of you in order to start a discussion, at the K2 talk page. My agreeing with you would resolve nothing. These changes need consensus before they can be included in the article! --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 21:57, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

the iau edit[edit]

why — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hhih (talkcontribs) 23:44, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

iau[edit]

the edit was good because when pluto goes in frount of neptune have it cleared any object form the kuiper belt out of its orbit the thatmeans it iss classified as a planet is in orbit around the Sun, has sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape), and has "cleared the neighbourhood" around its orbit while it is in front of neptune — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hhih (talkcontribs) 23:58, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

@Hhih:. No, that is incorrect. "Pluto fails to meet the third condition, because its mass is only 0.07 times that of the mass of the other objects in its orbit (Earth's mass, by contrast, is 1.7 million times the remaining mass in its own orbit)." - from the Pluto article. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 00:04, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

no it does when it is in front of Neptune — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hhih (talkcontribs) 00:09, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Aptronym[edit]

Hey there, I don't know if you still watch the page, but there's a discussion at Talk:Aptronym that you may want to weigh in on. I don't know your whole wikipedia philosophy, but it seemed that you, like me, approached and used consensus in a not always strictly-defined by endless Talk Page debates with disinterested editors way, but more naturally, such as by edit summaries. A user who just happened on the page randomly it seems is now trying to shoehorn in a definition of consensus where one wasn't needed as the article had an ebb and flow of entries. Your input would be appreciated. Cheers, JesseRafe (talk) 20:42, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
