Please support my proposal in Wikipedia talk:Community portal[edit]

Currently the portal's section "help out" lacks "Create these articles", "Represent a worldwide view" and "Add historical information", which is odd since there are still plenty of notable uncreated articles, e.g. smokers' rights and Joseph Charles Aub, plenty of articles with geographic imbalances and plenty of articles lacking sufficient historical information, and the issues are no less serious than the fact that there are still many articles requiring update. So please go to that page and support my proposal to add "Create these articles", "Represent a worldwide view" and "Add historical information" to the section "help out".--RekishiEJ (talk) 05:37, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Green Party of England and Wales[edit]

Hi. I have reverted you removal of content from Green Party of England and Wales. I don't find it contravening any wikipedia guidelines. If you object to my revision (which you probably do or you wouldn't have removed the content in the first place) could we take this discussion onto the articles talk page? Gaia Octavia Agrippa Talk 23:03, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Please see the discussion on the talk page of the Green Party of England and Wales article. Sport and politics (talk) 12:23, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Canvey Island Independent Party listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Canvey Island Independent Party. Since you had some involvement with the Canvey Island Independent Party redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so.

Gedling Borough Council 2015 - candidate names[edit]

The names I have entered are correct as per the statement of persons nominated and exactly how they are to appear on the voting papers.

The candidate names are accurate and taken from the statement of persons nominated.

As per Gedling Borough Council links here

These names will not appear in any shorted form and are as they are, and are fact.

Gedling Borough Council, Elections Office - direct line 0115 901 3844 - will also confirm this is the case. (Verzarli (talk) 15:33, 13 April 2015 (UTC)).

Please sing comments and follow the Manual of style. Neither of which are being followed by an IP troll. Sport and politics (talk) 14:11, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

I have reverted the page back for a 3rd time to the factually correct names the and commonly known as names as per on the actual ballot papers and listed on the actual statement of nominated persons. These are the correct names and a statement of fact, and have been referenced and cited.

Your own personal preference seems to be to remove middle names from candidates who clearly wish to use their full names as per the statement of nominated persons.

I do not understand your rationale for changing candidate names, to names the candidates are not actually standing as and are not referenced or cited as.

If you disagree, feel free to put the page forward for a consensus. (Verzarli (talk) 15:33, 13 April 2015 (UTC)).

You are more than welcome to start the discussion yourself, i see little value though in engaging with you, due to your history on this page and sense of ownership of the page. You are not a consensus building editor you are little more than a page owner on a single issue kick. I strongly suggest a good reading of the Manual of Style. Sport and politics (talk) 15:38, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Please also see here which explains the change in the law forcing names to match those on the electoral roll. Eliminating the old rule on being able to have any name you are actually commonly know by e.g. John Richard Smith cannot appear on the ballot paper as just John Smith. This means that the claim of "candidates who clearly wish to use their full names" is invalid in law. Sport and politics (talk) 15:52, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Reverted back, the middle name where on the ballot papers and are what people offical stood as in full. Your altering of people names this is inaccurate. --Verzarli (talk) 20:09, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

See the above link for the law on this also see the newspaper coverage of the names and how the councillors elected are listed on the Council website (not the results or elections pages). You are acting as the owner of this article and I intend on exposing you as such. Sport and politics (talk) 20:11, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't understand your hostile aggression or why this is so important to you, you seem to be trying to own the page.

Under the legal changes candidates must use middle names, these cannot normally be taken out. This elections where fought with people using their whole names, the press reported the results using whole names and the result where declared using whole names.

I do not understand your personal objection to the result being recorded using the candidates full names which they campaign on the election as... I can scan you copies of the leaflets and local papers to prove this.

As a matter of fact the council declared the results using full names, you can see this from there web-site: --Verzarli (talk) 04:08, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Your quote: 'Eliminating the old rule on being able to have any name you are actually commonly know by e.g. John Richard Smith cannot appear on the ballot paper as just John Smith.'

Therefore on wiki why are you changing John Richard Smith to read John Smith? When is not legally correct, as per your above example? --Verzarli (talk) 04:14, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

You are just a single issue jobsworth. Please clear off of Wikiepdia. Sport and politics (talk) 18:13, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Your repeated reversions on Don Foster (politician)[edit]

It is a very basic fact of Parliamentary procedure that MPs cease to be so upon the dissolution of Parliament. I have even provided a citation to back this up from what must surely be considered the definitive source. I don't know what motive you imagine I could possibly have for falsifying such information. Perhaps you would explain what reason you have for supposing that the date of 30 March is not accurate? --Walnuts go kapow (talk) 17:24, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Please note you are acting unilaterally, refusing to engage and instating on your version. This is what is referred to as a violation of ownership. and POV pushing, please refrain from doing or you will likely be reported for your disruptive beheaviour. Engage in constructive discussions or you will find Wikipedia s not the place for you. Discuss this on relevant pages not individual user talk pages. I am not going to engage on here but will engage on the issues on term end for MPs - Dissolution of Parliament. Sport and politics (talk) 18:07, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Tim Loughton[edit]

The BLP issue with that section you are adding is not regarding Loughton, it is regarding his constituent, who has contacted Wikipedia about the matter. The whole section is completely WP:UNDUE anyway. Please do not restore it again. Black Kite (talk) 12:45, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Please do not act like the owner of the page relying on an essay. Please do not pander to the I.P. editor who is directly involved with the content and is the other person involved in the dispute with Laughton. I will restore the information and will not be threatened by someone acting like an owner pandering to another editor who is abusive and want the information removed because they dislike it. The information is well sourced, justified and reliable. All of which trump the unsubstantiated undue weight claims. Sport and politics (talk) 18:18, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

David Burgess (lawyer)[edit]

Please abide by the outcome of Talk:David Burgess (lawyer)#Requested move 15 September 2015, where no consensus was found to move the article. As it says there: "Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review." I have reverted your out of process move, which also was to a wrong title: Because there is no other article titled Sonia Burgess, any move would go there and not to Sonia Burgess (Human Rights lawyer), which is also miscapitalized.  Sandstein  11:08, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
