Deletion of Claremont Rug Company page[edit]

Hello Safiel, When updating the Bakshaish, Caucasian, Sultanabad pages I added in information for Claremont Rug Company's Rug Type Guide pages which provides scholarly information on the origin, colors, design, and rich history of these Persian Rugs. My intention was not to advertise or promote Claremont Rug Company but to give reference to where the information came from. Our page has now been deleted and I request that it please be restored and in the future, I will not add written content to corresponding pages from our website. My intention was to provide more educational information about these types of rugs to enhance the user experience when searching through Wikipedia for these rug types and then reference the source not to promote our website. Thank you, Rug Connoisseur 09/20/17Rug Connoisseur (talk) 01:13, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

@Rug Connoisseur: I should note that I am not a Wikipedia Administrator and cannot restore any pages. Also, these deletions took place over three years ago and my involvement in them was very minor. I am not able to provide you any help. I suggest you try to locate the deleting administrator and contact him. Safiel (talk) 02:20, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Sandra Day O'Connor[edit]

The Supreme Court's Webpage (which is the authoritative source) states that a Justice's term begins when they take the oath of office (as opposed to the date of the commission). In Justice O'Connor's case, September 25 is the accurate date. I reverted your change and added the reference. JTRH (talk) 01:56, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

@JTRH: I am not going to oppose you on this, although I heavily disagree and have numerous arguments to make to the contrary. However, this general issue has been under off and on discussion for some time and I hope to arrange for a minor change to Template:Infobox judge that will allow us to resolve this matter by providing both for a term start (commission) field and a service start (oath) field. Hopefully, I can get to that in the mid October timeframe once I finish the current task I have going of rewriting a large table. But to avoid further discussion at this time, I will not oppose your edit or similar edits at this time. Safiel (talk) 02:16, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm just saying, if the Supreme Court says the 25th, it's hard to argue otherwise. JTRH (talk) 02:18, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
@JTRH: Your welcome. If your interested, here is a discussion we had on the topic a couple of months ago. Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_United_States_courts_and_judges#Start_date_in_Supreme_Court_Justices_infoboxes . Safiel (talk) 02:24, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
@Safiel: I'm basing it on the following, which I used in the cite for the change on the O'Connor article: "The date a Member of the Court took his/her Judicial oath (the Judiciary Act provided “That the Justices of the Supreme Court, and the district judges, before they proceed to execute the duties of their respective offices, shall take the following oath . . . ”) is here used as the date of the beginning of his/her service, for until that oath is taken he/she is not vested with the prerogatives of the office."
