My Wiki Entry

Someone on your staff has been hating on Maria Pitillo for years and they butchered her page AGAIN Dan Fitzgerald Djfitzgerald111 (talk) 01:07, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

My entry was butchered entirely. How do I go about having this reviewed?

Dan Fitzgerald Djfitzgerald111 (talk) 13:35, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

They are not "my staff", everyone is welcome to edit Wikipedia and everyone is a volunteer. The editor who removed the text you added did so with the rational of "removing unencylopedic elements. inappropriate use of source for "effervescent"", "Article need not ennumerate each of her roles year-to-year when that information is available in the filmography)" and "further trimmed. Article should not be problematically unsourced as of now". It seems they removed paragraphs which essentially just listed her film roles when that is already covered in the filmography section. They also removed parts they felt didn't belong in an encyclopedic article and unsourced text that may have been a WP:BLP issue.
If you have a problem with another users edits to an article the best place to address that is first that editor's talk page (User talk:70.182.195.99 in this case, although they may have changed ip's by now) or on the article talk page (probably the best place to discuss this now). I should warn you though that using terms like "butchered" and accusing other editors of hating an article subject may be seen as uncivil and is not the best way to encourage discussion, please assume good faith. Sarahj2107 (talk) 14:01, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I wouldnt have a problem if someone wished to debate the merits of the article before removing them. Dan Fitzgerald Djfitzgerald111 (talk) 15:15, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I know it's frustrating to have your work removed but biogrophies of living people are pretty sensitive and editors have to be careful what is added and how it is sourced. If the other editor felt that some of the unsourced or poorly sourced content was not appropriate then they had every right to remove it right away without discussion. Generally the Bold, Revert, Discuss cycle means that editor A (you) makes an edit, then editor B (the ip who removed your content) may disagree and revert without discussion. If you object to that then you should be the one to take the matter up on the talk page so an agreement can be made as to include it or not. Sarahj2107 (talk) 15:24, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm not investing any more time in this. Djfitzgerald111 (talk) 15:58, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

revert

You reverted an in-process edit claiming: cur | prev) 21:30, 6 August 2013‎ Sarahj2107 (talk | contribs)‎ . . (13,954 bytes) (-5,736)‎ . . (Reverted 5 edits by 159.83.252.233 (talk): This is not appropriate content even if it is sourced. (TW)) (undo)

WHY? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.83.252.233 (talk) 21:47, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Because the sources did not look reliable, the content was not relevant for an encyclopedic topic of that person and I had serious concerns regarding WP:BLP violations and the posting of potentially libellous information. Sarahj2107 (talk) 21:55, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

A30 road edit??

On July 2nd you undid an edit I made to the page 'A30 Road', saying it was not constructive. I added in the name of an exit on the A30 called 'Kennards House' at the A395, which is a constructive and useful piece of information as many of the other exits' names are listed, such as Pennygillam, the next exit heading eastbound. Why did you feel justified in removing my edit which was perfectly accurate and added useful information to the page?? I live here and pass that exit daily and felt it was useful to add to the entry as nobody had yet done so. Please reinstate the edit forthwith!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.92.63.160 (talk) 09:31, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

I reverted your addition for two reasons, firstly I had never heard of Kennards House and when I saw that change while patrolling it looked like someone just adding their house (ie. vandalism). The other reason I reverted your edit was because in the process of adding that information you broke the table and messed up the formatting for the rest of the page. Now that I have looked up Kennards House and know that it is an actual place, I see no reason for it not to be included. However, due to the aggressive nature of your comment here I will not be adding it back in myself, I do not like being ordered to do things. If you add it back though, I will not revert again.

By the way, the IP editor is not me, so please WP:AGF. Athenean (talk) 17:02, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
I am not making threats I was just asking for evidence of your claims, and I never said your where the IP - you should assume good faith. Sarahj2107 (talk) 18:20, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
By the way, you haven't adressed your problem with the other references I added. Are they discredited pseudoscience as well?Sarahj2107 (talk) 18:22, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
They use the same controversial methodology, namely single-locus HLA. Athenean (talk) 05:59, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
In my opinion, disregarding published data because the methodology is controversial sets a dangerous precedent. I would always report the controversial information and then critique it, but obviously that would be original research here, so I think the information should be included along with reilably sourced critisim and descussion of the problems.

Request to remove a comment on Nalaka Godahewa page

Hi Sarahj20107

I have been contributing to Nalaka Godahewa page with a few others and with valuable advice from those like you the page has now improved considerably in our opinion with both positive as well as negative published news items included. We noticed in January a message appeared on the top of the page as follows This article appears to be written like an advertisement. Please help improve it by rewriting promotional content from a neutral point of view and removing any inappropriate external links. (January 2013) Several improvements have been done after this taking the comment into account. The facts are balanced. Positive news as well as controversial news have been included with equal prominence and references are linked. No personal opinions of moderators but facts or published views have been reported. Information available are uptodate. So we kindly request you to assist us getting the above message removed from the top of the page. Thank you for past assistance and also for your support on this. Sorry I am not much technically competent yet. Regards

Hi. The article is looking much better now. I made a few minor changes to bring the tone more into line with what is expected of an encylopedia and I have removed the advert message. If you are editing any other articles and feel you have addressed any issue that messages mention, you can just delete the message template from the top of the page. If you need any more help, just let me know. Sarahj2107 (talk)

Nalaka Godahewa Page- Thank you for guidance

Actually you guided us from the very begining to improve the page and bring it to current standard. Thanks a lot for prompt response for my request — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smgooneratne (talkcontribs) 16:05, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Opinion of USA

I noticed that you ranked the USA as one of least favorite places you visited. Just wondering, what do you like/dislike about the USA? Thanks MaxDalton (talk) 06:24, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

I have nothing in particular against the USA, it's just that my experience of visiting was not as enjoyable as some of the other places I've been. Maybe I'll go back one day and visit some of the national parks, I've always wanted to do that. Sarahj2107 (talk) 07:17, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Sorry to intrude, but the USA is a big place. May I ask where you visited? I'm just curious... Viriditas (talk) 10:32, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
I was in Houston. I had some trouble with heat and humidity; I also prefer to be in the countryside than in a big city.Sarahj2107 (talk) 11:08, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
I agree with your preferences, and I think it is safe to say that people in Houston are also troubled by heat and humidity. Did you get a chance to try the Tex-Mex cuisine in Houston or the kolaches? You can learn a lot about the regional history of America through the local cuisine. Where I live in Hawaii, you can order a plate lunch, and by analyzing each food item on the plate, you can extrapolate the history of the people who came to Hawaii; in the same way you can discuss the geological history by examining the mountains, and the political history by looking at its laws. Viriditas (talk) 00:41, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
I loved the Tex-Mex, didn't have any kolaches though. It is interesting how you can tell where the people in a particular area originated from just by looking at the food eaten there. I know some people who would make fun of American food for being really unhealthy, but I'd imagine you can get dishes from just about everywhere in the world somewhere in the US; a lot more interesting than here in the UK. Sarahj2107 (talk) 09:12, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
I wouldn't be so hard on the UK. The Trip featured a lot of great food. Viriditas (talk) 23:10, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Hennessey Performance

If you go to http://www.cclerk.hctx.net/applications/websearch/Civil.aspx and search for Hennessey, a plethora of civil cases wherein judgments against him for tens of thousands of dollars have been entered, but you can't link directly to the cases, just the generic link (you have to enter his name as a defendant to find them). Source enough to include this rather significant information?

GattusoBayard (talk) 13:13, 13 December 2013 (UTC)GattusoBayard

Which article is this in relation to? Sarahj2107 (talk) 13:50, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Hennessey Performance. GattusoBayard (talk) 15:57, 13 December 2013 (UTC)GattusoBayard

If you want to mention the civil cases in the article then that link would not be sufficient as it's a primary source. You would need an independent source such as a newspaper article. Sarahj2107 (talk) 16:43, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

I'll link to Car and Driver's discussion of same. My college professors are shuddering at the preference for secondary sources. GattusoBayard (talk) 18:00, 13 December 2013 (UTC)GattusoBayard
