A barnstar for you![edit]

Special Barnstar Hires.png The Special Barnstar
I'm sure you've heard it before, but the Chelsea Manning article is amazing! I hope it's one more symbol to her that people care. The article must have taken so much work! I just wanted to say thanks. Chelsea is a person I love and respect for her courage and honesty. Daphne Lantier 23:21, 1 January 2017 (UTC)
Daphne, thank you very much. This is a nice way to start the New Year! SarahSV (talk) 03:33, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

MOS RFC[edit]

You had floated the idea of a central RFC, on a Village Pump or somewhere, to gauge whether the MOS is only advisory (and thus could just be ignored) or whether it is mandatory (so things it requires can be changed without violating STYLEVAR). I think that it would be a good idea to have an RFC like that, to clarify the situation, because there are currently some number of people operating under each of those interpretations, making communication difficult. The RFC question would need to be phrased in a neutral and productive way, of course, but I do encourage you to pursue that if you're interested. — Carl (CBM · talk) 14:13, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Carl, I agree that this would be a good idea. I'd want to take time to think of how to phrase it and read any talk-page discussions about it. SarahSV (talk) 17:39, 2 January 2017 (UTC)


Put this string into Wikipedia's search engine:

insource:"/<ref name=\":0\">/"

this will reveal all the many, many instances of pages with such refnames. DS (talk) 14:35, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

DS, I first encountered it with student editing, and it took me a while to realize it was Visual Editor. Perhaps the VE developers could be asked to change it. SarahSV (talk) 19:50, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
They've already been asked. More than once. DS (talk) 19:54, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
If you have links to those discussions, I can add a request. SarahSV (talk) 20:01, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Some discussion. Note that the 2016 discussion led to some tasks on Phabricator... and that the issue has not been resolved. DS (talk) 02:37, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll leave a comment. SarahSV (talk) 21:02, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

She Wolf[edit]

Can you semi-protect the page to persistent genre warring. (talk) 03:28, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

There isn't enough recent activity there to protect, but please ask at WP:RfPP if it continues. SarahSV (talk) 04:07, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

If you want me to respond to any of his comments on the I-Space or Cynefin articles let me know. Given that he is actively seeking to promote his own business (the only time he edits wikipedia) and is in formal IP & other disputes with both my company and the creator of the KIF model he references I really don't want to get involved unless I have to. ----Snowded TALK 21:34, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

You know very well Dave Snowded that most of what you write above is nonsense. I'm am not in a legal dispute with your company (never have been) nor with the creator of the KiF model (never have been).
That I prefer to focus on a few articles on Wikipedia is personal choice that is not your business. Please remember that I was one of the earliest contributors to the Cynefin Framework page in 2008 as you can see here That things have changed between us businesswise has reasons you are very familiar with. Please face them and stop trying making me look the black sheep of the family.Hvgard (talk) 21:00, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

The discussion above is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

In these last few days, I've peeked in at the Cynefin Framework discussion. IMHO the article would be served best, if all editors who are involved with or affected by this topic off Wikipedia, would stay away from the article entirely. GoodDay (talk) 14:00, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks re WP:RfPP assistance! :)[edit]

Thanks for your support on WP:RfPP re this page. Hopefully 7 days will be a long enough period of deterrent to stop the unfortunate vandalism the same person seems to wish to continually enact. Cheers! Demonuk (talk) 04:02, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Demonuk, sorry for the delay in replying. I'll keep an eye on it in case it continues. SarahSV (talk) 01:17, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Soup and sandwich[edit]

Hi there, just wondering the logic behind you removing the tag on this article which says it focuses on the US. It doesn't really mention any other country so I thought that the tag was appropriate. I'm not going to put it back but I'd like to learn why it was wrong :-) Cls14 (talk) 08:36, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
