File permission problem with File:Ailladie-panorama.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Ailladie-panorama.jpg, which you've attributed to "The author, a friend of mine, gave me permission". I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included.

  • I had already marked it for deletion myself, since I moved it to Commons. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 15:25, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Rwxrwxrwx. The same message also applies to File:Davesarcophagus.jpg. Since you did not take the photos, an OTRS ticket is required for each image. There's instructions available at WP:consent as to how to do this. The files have also been nominated for deletion on the Commons. -- Diannaa (talk) 15:31, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Gallery in Nelson's Pillar for March 23[edit]

HI there, you removed the full Gallery for Nelson's Pillar stating that wikipedia was NOT an Image Repository. However I ask can you make an exception for this! The reason being Nelson's Pillar no longer exists having been blown up. For educational Purposes and History lessons we feel it is important to see the images! We initially posted these images as part of a Project on Nelson's Pillar Dublin, and feel they are essential for understanding of Nelson's Pillar !

There are a lot of people and schools interested in our Photos of Nelson's Pillar and had hoped this wikipedia article was a great location to find them. We have no intention of posting any other images other than the Gallery Posted as of yesterday 22-March. So that is the Gallery completed !

Initially we had posted numerous photos for various other projects undertaken. The Photos we posted over the last year or so, were based on wikipedia's article requesting for Old Buildings and in particular Monuments!

Is there any way you can make an exception and keep in the Gallery? Any help appreciated. Kind Regards Foxhunter22

Hi @Foxhunter22:. It's true that Wikipedia is "not an image repository", not a photo album, not a scrapbook, it's an encyclopedia. If we make an exception for this, then why not every other article? It would make a mockery of the whole policy. Wikimedia Commons is specifically designed to hold collections of images, and if you click the Commons link at the bottom of the article in question, it will bring you to the Nelson's Pillar category, which contains every image of the thing that has ever been uploaded by anybody for use in all language versions of Wikipedia, and more quality uploads are welcome. I'm not familiar with the Wikipedia request for photos of monuments, but I think you'll find that it asks for the photos to be uploaded to Commons, and only the best few included in Wikipedia articles, in accordance with Wikipedia policies. Cheers. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 20:50, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi @Rwxrwxrwx:. Fair enough. We will abide by the rules !

It's just a pity you couldn't make an exception here. The reason stated above - lots of learning for School Children, Schools in General, and Professional people doing research on various Projects ongoing here in Dublin Ireland and in England. For a lot of Researchers etc seeing the Pillar and Monument itself is better than reading about it -to see it's scale and detail could only come from a Photo Gallery! Given the Pillar is long gone from Dublin since March 1966, that's 49 years ago this month.

The Monument section we saw a few months ago, is probably something to do with this http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org/ Well it's disappointing that's for sure for all of us here !! For instance we were planning to show the Thomas Kirk Statue of Nelson we posted with Birds Nest and British Flag draped over it in detail this Friday to various Interests on Projector using this wikipedia page! The Detail was exceptional !

Either way if you can't do anything for us and it contravenes Rules etc then we can only accept that! Thank you for replying to us! Kind Regards FoxHunter22

Rudeness[edit]

Was there any need to be so rude and use foul language like you did in this edit summary? I was courteous and civil in mine, so there was no need for your rudeness. Wes Mouse | T@lk 18:36, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

  • "Rude and foul"? That reaction seems a bit over the top; let's keep it light-hearted. Cheers. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 18:42, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Please close AfD[edit]

Close AfD before merge, by the way that AfD can not be closed now. I am correct here, you cannot merge an article in without consensus. Though Guy's close is controversial, if the AfD was not opened than the merge can be done since the 3rd AfD is the most recent discussion consensus must be reached. Valoem talk contrib 17:24, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@Valoem: This is getting a bit silly. The merge debate was opened on 29 March, nearly 3 weeks ago, there had been huge input into it, and it was properly closed; the consensus was "merge". Just because somebody started a new AfD 3 days ago does not invalidate the merge debate; it invalidates the AfD which was premature, and should be closed now. I can't close it since I am not an admin, and I have taken sides on the issue. I notice an admin is now getting involved in it. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 20:16, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

However[edit]

First of all look at the edits, I didn't put anything in there. To say I need to learn punctuation and capitalization is dumb. If you want to make that change then fine, but to say I need to learn it when I didn't write is stupid.

Second read the sentence you seem to want to be there so badly "However, it isn't water resistant so don't submerge it in water." The words "so don't submerge it in water" are not encyclopedic and should probably be removed. Do you suggest we make the sentence just "However, it isn't water resistant." It doesn't make sense to be its own sentence. The proper way the sentence should be is "It has a water resistant coating which protects it from light water splash, however it isn't water resistant." It just flows better and grammatically makes more sense.

If you want to leave the submerge part in there in two sentences it still makes more sense without the word however. "It also has a water resistant coating which protects it from light water splash. It isn't water resistant so don't submerge it in water." - GalatzTalk 20:47, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

@Galatz: The existing version reads:
The second generation Moto E has a 4.5-inch qHD LCD screen, 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM, storage of 8GB (out of which 5.47 GB is available to the user) with microSD card slot (supports expandable storage of up to 32GB), it also has a water resistant coating which protects it from light water splash. However, it isn't water resistant so don't submerge it in water. It is available in either 3G or 4G LTE.
You have been trying to change it to:
The second generation Moto E has a 4.5-inch qHD LCD screen, 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB RAM, storage of 8GB (out of which 5.47 GB is available to the user) with microSD card slot (supports expandable storage of up to 32GB), it also has a water resistant coating which protects it from light water splash however it isn't water resistant so don't submerge it in water it is available in either 3G or 4G LTE.
Simply getting rid of punctuation and capitals and destroying sentence structure in order to enforce some perceived "rule" about not starting a sentence with "However" is bizarre. First, there is no such rule; some just consider it better style in certain situations. Second, don't just destroy the text you object to; make some effort to improve it. I agree it's not encyclopaedic - make it encyclopaedic without wrecking it. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 21:11, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
I didnt "wreck" anything, I undid a change that I viewed as making something worse rather than better. You undid what I undid. To say I have been trying to "change it to" is completely inaccurate. I have been leaving it as it was. Very big difference. - GalatzTalk 21:18, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
@Galatz: That looks better now. For the record though, it was you who initiated the changes; I just reverted you. Cheers. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 21:56, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
And I just reverted someone else, they initiated it, not me, but whatever, as long as its set now. Thanks - GalatzTalk 01:02, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]

We do not have any ties to the company or product. However, we would like to be the contributors to the new product and have attached another source of reference. Please review. Thanks Vinopedia (talk) 11:04, 27 May 2015 (UTC)vinopedia

Hello @Vinopedia:. This refers to your editing of the Corkscrew article to include a description of the "La Flute" product. The only independent reference you provided is a link to a review in "Bella Online", which publishes articles submitted by amateur writers,[1] and is hardly a reliable source. Searching the web, I could find no reliable sources, such as articles in trade journals, professional reviews by wine critics, etc. Probably every brand of corkscrew has been reviewed by somebody somewhere; that doesn't mean each one deserves a listing in this article, which is about corkscrews in general. Your user account is new, devoted only to publicising this product, and your claim of independence is not convincing. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 11:25, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Logo of Illumination Mac Guff.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Logo of Illumination Mac Guff.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Carniolus (talk) 20:18, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

AIV[edit]

This is crazy, take this kind of thing to WP:ANI. Ghostwheel ʘ 00:01, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

I may be wrong, so I've checked here. Ghostwheel ʘ 00:06, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Rwxrwxrwx, that report looks like it took a while to assemble, thanks for trying to help. If someone is causing trouble with that many IP's, its probably too complicated for AIV, and would be better reported at ANI. I don't know why someone didn't just do that, but the ANI thread above went pear-shaped. I'd do it for you but I have no time. Also, I don't know how to rangeblock. If you want help, copy your AIV report to ANI, the next time you're online, and ask for an admin who can do rangeblocks to review, and block if appropriate. Thanks. --Floquenbeam (talk) 02:00, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
    • p.s. the closer of the thread suggested WP:SPI or WP:LTA; don't follow that advice, it is incorrect. --Floquenbeam (talk) 02:01, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
      • So I was right to begin with, why didn't you just say so in the first place FLQbeam? Ghostwheel ʘ 02:19, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about the 'crazy' comment, I should have phrased it more like Floquenbeam.... I'll do better next time. Glad you reported it, I was pretty dumb in my response. Ghostwheel ʘ 02:03, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

  • @Ghostwheel: @Floquenbeam: Thanks for the comments. As can be seen, there is nothing remotely new about this; it has been going on a long time. It has also had the attention of plenty of admins, who I think have accepted that there is no quick solution; just respond to each event as it happens, blocking and protecting as appropriate without over-the-top reactions, and of course WP:DFTT, until the offenders get tired of it. When I see it happening I just revert the edits, add the address to my list, and report at AIV, so that admins can see at a glance what the problem is, block/protect as they see fit without having to go through the whole 1-2-3-final warning tedium, then forget about it until the next time. I haven't heard any realistic ideas other than the current system for dealing with it (are we going to range-block all of Indonesia?), so I don't see ANI as a magic solution. However I will post the matter there and see if anything new appears. Cheers. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 08:32, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Update: I see it has been raised at ANI: WP:ANI#Vandal, so I can probably rest for the moment. Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 08:43, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

I archived the ANI report for now. Let me know if the vandal starts up again and I'll help however I can - I've seen a couple of admins who do range blocks, we can ping them directly next time. Ghostwheel ʘ 20:43, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Conca de Barberà[edit]

Thank you for your inputs at Conca de Barberà. I have never been to Catalonia but chose to expand this article, and certain others, because of the large number of points they are able to generate at DYK in the WikiCup. However my lack of knowledge of the region and my limited Spanish may have led me into errors, and I see you have corrected a few. Also, my knowledge is limited to what I can find online and you probably know a lot more about the region. Please feel free to add more information, and I can add you in to the DYK if you would like that. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 13:00, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

@Cwmhiraeth: Hi. I am a regular visitor to the region (mainly Baixa Segarra), and know a bit of Catalan, but don't claim to be an expert. I'll see if I can do a bit more work there, but I'm not looking for DYK or any other credit, so you are welcome to press ahead with your improvements and maybe I'll keep an eye out for bits needing clarification.

Signpost exit poll[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, you recently voted in the ArbCom election. Your username, along with around 155 other usernames of your fellow Wikipedians, was randomly selected from the 2000+ Wikipedians who voted this year, with the help of one of the election-commissioners. If you are willing, could you please participate (at your option either on-wiki via userspace or off-wiki via email) in an exit poll, and answer some questions about how you decided amongst the ArbCom candidates?

  If you decide to participate in this exit poll, the statistical results will be published in the Signpost, an online newspaper with over 1000 Wikipedians among the readership. There are about twelve questions, which have alphanumerical answers; it should take you a few minutes to complete the exit poll questionnaire, and will help improve Wikipedia by giving future candidates information about what you think is important. This is only an unofficial survey, and will have no impact on your actual vote during this election, nor in any future election.

  All questions are individually optional, and this entire exit poll itself is also entirely optional, though if you choose not to participate, I would appreciate a brief reply indicating why you decided not to take part (see Question Zero). Thanks for being a Wikipedian

The questionnaire[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, please fill out these questions -- at your option via usertalk or via email, see Detailed Instructions at the end of the twelve questions -- by putting the appropriate answer in the blanks provided. If you decide not to answer a question (all questions are optional), please put the reason down: "undecided" / "private information" / "prefer not to answer" / "question is not well-posed" / "other: please specify". Although the Signpost cannot guarantee that complex answers can be processed for publication, it will help us improve future exit polls, if you give us comments about why you could not answer specific questions.

@Scope creep: Unfortunately, there was/is a huge backlog at Peer Review and your request was sitting there for over a month with no response. In order to keep the backlog reasonable, the Peer Review guidelines suggest that any requests over a month old with no activity in the last two days should be removed, and that's what happened.

yola language[edit]

hi there. even do the language is extinct a lot of words and phrases still exist in the locality and it is an important part of our history and culture around here, far more important than the irish language, for example, which was never spoke here. I would ask your kind permission as someone far removed eneough from the area as to be unaware of this, to allow me to keep my posts which reflect the fabric and wishes of the local community, thankyou. Yola12345 (talk) 20:15, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

@Yola12345: - Hi. I only removed the Yola names from the introductory sentence of the articles, as it gave the impression that the Yola name is an official or widely-used name for the place, on a par with English/Irish, which of course it is not. There's no harm in discussing Yola heritage in the body of the article if it is significant and sourced. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 20:22, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

is that an official wikipedia rule? that it has to be a current language?

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Tanzania Cricket logo.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Tanzania Cricket logo.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Hello, Rwxrwxrwx. Your account has been granted the "extendedmover" user right, either following a request for it or demonstrating familiarity with working with article names and moving pages. You are now able to rename pages without leaving behind a redirect, and move subpages when moving the parent page(s).

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

If you do not want the page mover right anymore, post here, or just let me know. Thank you, and happy editing! ~ Rob13Talk 21:57, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

New page reviewer granted[edit]

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Hello Rwxrwxrwx. Your account has been added to the "New page reviewers" user group, allowing you to review new pages and mark them as patrolled, tag them for maintenance issues, or in some cases, tag them for deletion. The list of articles awaiting review is located at the New Pages Feed. New page reviewing is a vital function for policing the quality of the encylopedia, if you have not already done so, you must read the new tutorial at New Pages Review, the linked guides and essays, and fully understand the various deletion criteria. If you need more help or wish to discuss the process, please join or start a thread at page reviewer talk.

  • Be nice to new users - they are often not aware of doing anything wrong.
  • You will frequently be asked by users to explain why their page is being deleted - be formal and polite in your approach to them too, even if they are not.
  • Don't review a page if you are not sure what to do. Just leave it for another reviewer.
  • Remember that quality is quintessential to good patrolling. Take your time to patrol each article, there is no rush. Use the message feature and offer basic advice.

The reviewer right does not change your status or how you can edit articles. If you no longer want this user right, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. In case of abuse or persistent inaccuracy of reviewing, the right can be revoked at any time by an administrator. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 13:08, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Not sure why [INE - Municipal Register | that link works fine on my end. Try it here and see if it works. By the way, thank you for responding and testing your results.! Are you by chance using AWB to do this ? KoshVorlon} 16:30, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
@KoshVorlon: Yes, that is the home page of the INE site, which is not much use to readers. The links that were there were dead as described. The idescat links that I replaced them with go directly to the page containing full statistics in English (mainly) for the municipality. I am using a homemade script to identify problem pages. Thanks. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 16:38, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Those links aren't dead. You may be having an issue with the script (if you're using it to check the validity of those links). They work just fine. I'd like to ask you to stop removing that link please (note I have no dog in this fight, I didn't even know about this site till I saw your edits ). KoshVorlon} 16:45, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
What do you mean by "not dead"? They provide no useful information. Here is another random sample of 5:
*https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Fontanilles&oldid=758296119 (ref no. 3)
*https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Mont-ral&oldid=760563158 (ref no. 4)
*https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Garrigoles&oldid=759533813 (ref no. 3)
*https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Castellfollit_de_la_Roca&oldid=758130289 (5th ref.)
*https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=La_Garriga&oldid=758344610 (ref no. 3)
Can you show me any reference that I replaced that was actually useful? Thanks.

@KoshVorlon: bump — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 17:28, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Ok, when someone tells me a link is dead - I take it to mean that the link either is invalid, doesn't exist, or throws an error. The link you're removing is valid, does exist and actually gives information. I understand you use the word "dead" to mean no useful information.

I follow you. The old link actually will give information, but your link is certainly easier to work with. I follow you now, and I'll stop bugging you about your removal of that link. KoshVorlon} 17:38, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

@KoshVorlon: No problem. Cheers. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 17:40, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

Hello Rwxrwxrwx,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg
A HUGE backlog

We now have 424 New Page Reviewers!
Most of us requested the user right at PERM, expressing a wish to be able to do something about the huge backlog, but the chart on the right does not demonstrate any changes to the pre-user-right levels of October.

Hitting 17,000 soon

The backlog is still steadily growing at a rate of 150 a day or 4,650 a month. Only 20 reviews a day by each reviewer over the next few days would bring the backlog down to a managable level and the daily input can then be processed by each reviewer doing only 2 or 3 reviews a day - that's about 5 minutes work!
It didn't work in time to relax for the Xmas/New Year holidays. Let's see if we can achieve our goal before Easter, otherwise by Thanksgiving it will be closer to 70,000.

Second set of eyes

Remember that we are the only guardians of quality of new articles, we alone have to ensure that pages are being correctly tagged by non-Reviewer patrollers and that new authors are not being bitten.

Abuse

This is even more important and extra vigilance is required considering Orangemoody, and

  1. this very recent case of paid advertising by a Reviewer resulting in a community ban.
  2. this case in January of paid advertising by a Reviewer, also resulting in a community ban.
  3. This Reviewer is indefinitely blocked for sockpuppetry.

Coordinator election[edit]

Kudpung is stepping down after 6 years as unofficial coordinator of New Page Patrolling/Reviewing. There is enough work for two people and two coords are now required. Details are at NPR Coordinators; nominate someone or nominate yourself. Date for the actual suffrage will be published later.

New Page Review - newsletter No.3[edit]

Hello Rwxrwxrwx,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Voting for coordinators has now begun HERE and will continue through/to 23:59 UTC Monday 06 March. Please be sure to vote. Any registered, confirmed editor can vote. Nominations are now closed.

Still a MASSIVE backlog

We now have 424 New Page Reviewers but despite numerous appeals for help, the backlog has NOT been significantly reduced.
If you asked for the New Page Reviewer right, please consider investing a bit of time - every little helps preventing spam and trash entering the mainspace and Google when the 'NO_INDEX' tags expire.

Disambiguation link notification for April 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Trócaire, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Duncan Stewart (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:57, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Anna Frodesiak (talk) 07:04, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

@Anna Frodesiak: Thanks for the suggestion! I enjoy simply improving the encyclopaedia and on the rare occasions that the tools are needed I am grateful to be able to hand the matter over to another pair of eyes. I'll keep it in mind though. Cheers. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 12:25, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Hi Rwxrwxrwx. That's perfectly alright, my friend. Keep up the good work. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 18:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Montjuïc[edit]

Your edit of Monjuic is not a proper Wiki citation. You linked to a reference of a set of encyclopedias. But no reference to the name of the mountain. And it is 100% incorrect. I lived in Barcelona. Monjuic is 10000% named after the Jewish presence from the cemetary. Why would you put misinformation in Wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sktpa (talkcontribs) 04:30, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

@Sktpa: Hi. I moved your comment to the bottom of this page. I don't see any misinformation in either your or my edits. The reference you supplied was (1) a passing mention in (2) a travel article in (3) an Israeli newspaper. That was not a reliable source. The current reference to the Gran Enciclopèdia Catalana contains substantial discussion of the etymology, including the previously-widespread Roman theory, and I see no reason for it not to be a reliable source; see WP:PSTS. Cheers. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 11:22, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Your suggestion that the reference I gave is not reliable because it comes from Israel is bordering on anti Semitic. And the Jerusalem Post is highly regarded as a news source. The fact that its a travel article is irrelevant. Please see the following reference. Yours simply points to a set of books. There is NO corroboration, no page listed in your citation, nor can you see it when you open the link. This is really why people don't like to cite Wiki. See the following: [1] and [2] which is a Barcelona source. I would ask you to please consider removing what you have written. With respect for your other work, in the case, you are wrong.

@Sktpa: No personal attacks, please. The Jerusalem Post may be a respected newspaper, but that does not mean its travel writers are experts in Catalan toponymy. The GEC does specialise in Catalan subjects, and the reference given links directly to its page (in Catalan) on Montjuïc. I think the (WP) article makes it clear that the "Jewish Mountain" etymology is the accepted one, but it is totally appropriate that a section on etymology also mentions other prominent theories which are relevant and reliably sourced. I don't understand why you would want to restrict discussion on the subject. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 11:59, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

References

@Rwxrwxrwx: No personal attacks at all. Please read my comment, specifically acknowledging the other great work you've done for Wiki. To suggest that this conversation is a personal attack is simply untrue. As you said, "I think" and clearly we think differently. I do not think its appropriate, given your wording, which suggests other theories. It would be similar to noting that some people think the earth is flat. Montjuic is named Jews Mountain, and it is because of the vast cemetery that was there. Other "theories" are misleading (and you did not mention that very clearly). If you prefer not to change it, that's fine. Again, this is why people bash Wiki. And to suggest that you didn't find the reference valid in part because it came from Israel says it all. I believe we will have to agree to disagree. Clearly you wont change what you've written. Thank you for your time. sktpa

New Page Review - Newsletter No.4[edit]

Hello Rwxrwxrwx,
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 424 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.

Stay up to date with recent new page developments and have your say, read THIS PAGE.

Revised Article[edit]

Hello! You recently revised my paragraph "Tigernado" in the article Tuttle, Oklahoma . I am from Tuttle and I have received praise from people all over town, being that it is a small community and most people know everyone, for my work. This is not an attack against you, and I have also correctly referenced my work this time, but I am asking you to please leave my paragraph the way it is. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by TuttleLegend (talkcontribs) 16:59, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

  • @TuttleLegend: Thanks for getting back to me. Wikipedia articles are subject to Wikipedia policies, and I have revised your material in accordance with those policies, as outlined in your talk page. Our own personal preferences are not relevant here. Cheers. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 17:05, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
  • @Rwxrwxrwx I'm glad we could come to common ground. I kinda like the shortened version of my article. Thanks for the cooperation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TuttleLegend (talkcontribs) 17:08, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
  • @TuttleLegend: Cheers. On another subject, before you write much more, maybe take a minute to read WP:YOUNG. Good luck. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 18:51, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Commodore Reef[edit]

Hi. I'm not complaining - just asking. Why did you remove the phrase (that should have read) "Philippine controlled reef"? Thanks in advance, Sorry - Please ignore Pdfpdf (talk) 09:56, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks for the cleanup! Pdfpdf (talk) 09:56, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
  • @Pdfpdf: Hi. It was just part of a general cleanup, separating the geography from the politics. The phrase "under Philippine control" appears later in the paragraph. I was in the middle of doing another cleanup edit when I noticed this message, which maybe improves it a bit more. Cheers. — Rwxrwxrwx (talk) 10:02, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
    • Yes. Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry for not noticing the obvious first time I looked at it! And yes, like you I also think separating the geography from the politics is a good idea. Sorry to have bothered you. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 10:09, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
