Hannah Marshall[edit]

I hope you don't mind that I've moved Hannah Marshall to draft space as per my edit summary. Schwede66 23:27, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I do mind, actually - significant roles in two TV shows means the subject passes WP:NACTOR #1. Add stub tags if you need to, but there is nothing wrong with having a stub like this in mainspace. StAnselm (talk) 23:41, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

On Hammoth-Dor[edit]

Hello, St. Anselm. If I am reading the edit history correctly, back in September you put a "clarification needed" tag on on the article Hammoth-Dor. I've cleaned up the relevant sentence. I'm wondering if you now consider it clear enough for me to remove the clarification needed tag. I would do it myself, but I figured since you put it there first, I'd check with you.Alephb (talk) 11:02, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, it's all good now - I have removed the tag myself. StAnselm (talk) 11:36, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

New Page Review - newsletter No.2[edit]

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

We now have 662 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.

Message on my talk page[edit]

Hi,

I'm confused as to why you left a warning message on my talk page. The underlinked tag keps getting removed because there's a program that I use called AutoWikiBrowser which, amongst other things, detects errors in tags. According to its algorithms, that article is not underlinked therefore the tag keeps getting removed. It's semi-automated and works on lists so that article is one in thousands that AWB deals with.

Please remember not to template the regulars as it's patronising and a bit rude really.

DrStrauss talk 20:09, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I've had problems with tools doing things I didn't want - but we still have to take responsibility for our edits. See WP:AWBRULES: "You are responsible for every edit made." Perhaps you need to raise the problem with the tool's developer, or maybe you just need to stop using AWB. With this particular removal, you had done it twice[1][2] - and made no other edits to the article. I had reverted your first removal, but you had ignored that. Anyway, I'm sorry you were offended by the template, but please also see WP:TR. StAnselm (talk) 20:46, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
I suppose so: it's only a minor thing really but I'll raise it with the developers but I make a lot of useful edits with AWB as can be seen in my thanks log so I'm not stopping using it. I knew you'd reply with the rebuttal essay...
Sorry if I came off a bit terse, hopefully we can both bear that in mind in future.
Thank you,

Torah is not a subset of the Bible[edit]

this is not OK. Please don't make these kinds of claims in Wikipedia. Thanks. Jytdog (talk) 04:24, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Jews traditionally divide the Bible into Torah, Neviim, and Ketuvim. That makes Torah (in one sense of the word) a subset of the Bible. Getting all huffy about that is ridiculous. Alephb (talk) 11:46, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Part of the issue is - what is The Bible? Jews have Tanakh and Christians have their own versions (which are not the same among Christians; the Catholic Bible has more books than the Protestant Bible see also Christian biblical canons). Most Christians are not thinking Tanakh when they say "Bible" in my experience, they are thinking some version of the Christian Bible. Otherwise they wouldn't get upset when I said "The Bible doesn't include the New Testament" which is perfectly true if;) you are Jewish and talking about your "Bible" and b) if "Bible" is really a term that anybody can use however they want. Jytdog (talk) 01:13, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
The Christian Bibles all include the five books of Moses (a name we can all agree on), which we Jews call Torah, and we don't mind anybody else calling it Torah. Torah is a subset of the Bible in every sense of the word, anybody's Bible, everybody's Bible. See Biblical canon § Old Testament: "All of the major Christian traditions accept the books of the Hebrew protocanon in its entirety as divinely inspired and authoritative." Yes, of course translations differ, but nobody disagrees on the books that are included in the Torah. --Thnidu (talk) 04:22, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Is that quote actually in Wikipedia? Oy we need to fix that. Outside of that what you are saying is true - Torah is in everybody's "Bible". it just not everybody means the same thing by "Bible", and in the context above, naming Abraham as being someone in "the bible" and the quran just excludes (in my view) Jewish traditions about Abraham in a way that is both casual and unhelpful and we really should never do. There is sometimes reason to be sloppy but why be so when there is no need? Jytdog (talk) 04:35, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
If we want to give a shout-out to every possible religious group so that no one feels left out, maybe we should have the infobox read "Torah, Protestant Bible, Roman Catholic Bible, Greek Orthodox Bible, Coptic Orthodox Bible, Tawahedo Bible, Mormon Scriptures." That way all the different Bibles belonging to groups with 15 million members or more are included; all of these religions have populations equal to or greater than the number of adherents of Judaism. Otherwise, some of our readers might think instinctively of Protestant Bibles, without stopping to take a minute to appreciate the full, rich tapestry of religious traditions. Alephb (talk) 01:29, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Hm! My biggest concern was the very different things Jews and Christians hear and mean with regard to "Bible". Do people actually refer to the Book of Mormon as a "Bible" If so I was completely ignorant of that. Jytdog (talk) 01:46, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh, no, they don't call it the Mormon Bible -- they use the King James Bible. There was a distinctly Mormon Bible produced by Joseph Smith, but it's current status is . . . complicated, in part due to a schism and a legal battle over the copyright. Alephb (talk) 02:01, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
  • this is an example of where the problem is very clear, but there are the kind of more subtle things discussed above... Jytdog (talk) 21:55, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

Draft article on "History of Fair Use proposals in Australia"[edit]

As per your original suggestion on the Australian wikipedians' noticeboard - and as 'seconded' by Capitalistroadster and Lankiveil - I and a couple of others (notably Damph & Trishhepworth, and also Tango Mike Bravo) have taken your advice and made the draft article Draft:History of Fair Use proposals in Australia' - an attempt to make a normal Wikipedia article discussing the issue of the various proposals/arguments around Fair Use in Australia over the years. I believe it is now up to beyond-minimum-standard for Wikipedias normal article creation criteria (whilst still not being 'finished' obviously), but I've put it up for article-creation-review just for the avoidance of doubt in case someone is worried my launching the article myself is a COI. If you, or others tagged here, would like to edit and improve the draft article - go right ahead! If you (or others) feel comfortable approving it for mainspace, feel free. Sincerely, Wittylama 13:32, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

I don't think it's quite ready for article space yet. There is nothing, for example on the response by Copyright Agency Ltd to proposals (which was mentioned in the original discussion). Also, the "Example use-cases" is very strange: it says "Arguments have included", but the list that follows is of examples, not arguments. StAnselm (talk) 21:12, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Henry Adams[edit]

Hey, I've seen your revert and read the header of Category:Antisemitism_in_the_United_States. But what's written there is pretty weird, because antisemitism is something completely different than criticism of Judaism. Criticism pre-supposes scholarship, demonstrated by e.g. writing books or articles about the topic, which is not what antisemitism is about. And Judaism refers to the religious beliefs and practices, while antisemitism refers to ethnicity. Marcocapelle (talk) 20:34, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I have no opinions about whether he can be categorised as a "critic", but the scope of the antisemitism categories were fixed a few years ago, and it was decided not to have antisemites in them. This was mainly due to BLP concerns, but it was applied to all biographies. StAnselm (talk) 20:41, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Why do we then allow Category:Anti-communists? Marcocapelle (talk) 08:52, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps because it's less pejorative? People might be much more willing to describe themselves as "anti-communist" rather than "antisemitic". StAnselm (talk) 12:13, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

June 2017[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on The Bible and homosexuality. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection.

Testament[edit]

Hi, SA.

As an OT scholar, you may be familiar (or like to know more about this cite): Romer, John Testament: The Bible and History, Abstract. (New York: Henry Holt & Co., 1988). I have cited the book @ https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Irenaeus&diff=697775004&oldid=697773019 in the section Making the Choice: Irenaeus of Lyon, pp. 198-202 (for an Edit described as: 2nd para.,last sent.↑2:His polemic credited for laying out"orthodoxies of Christian church, its faith, its preaching&books that it held as sacred authority0.

Romer for the OT relied esp. on archeological evidence. Also relying on the latter & genetics (like, whoa!), hot of the press is this book: Steven Weitzman, The Origin of the Jews, Princeton, 394 pp. (rev. in the Wall Street Journal, https://www.wsj.com/articles/in-search-of-the-origin-of-the-jews-1499726881 7.11.17 (!), p.

Cancelled your undo on the movement of Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact theories to Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact[edit]

The recent peer reviewed study summarizing the overwhelming evidence for Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact, in addition to the two known historic cases, conclusively establishes Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact. The title 'theories', therefore, is inaccurate and misleading, being a subjective spin rather than an objective content classification.

Hence, the page needed to be renamed.

I therefore renamed the page from Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact theories to Pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact, which you undid, further suggesting we have an RM discussion about it. I do not doubt the outcome of such a discussion would be in favor of the move.

If you have some kind of reason you believe makes sense to resist or delay such a move, even though...

  • High profile peer reviewed scientific literature clearly states the prior views are now outmoded.
  • The content of the article does not align with the title to which you reverted the article.

... then please put it forward on the talk page over here where it can be discussed. If people wish to have a formal RM discussion, that's fine, but I really don't see how anyone could reasonably and objectively agree with the old page title and disagree with the new one.

In the mean time, to prevent an nonsensical title for a well developed article, I have just now re-instated the move pending the presentation of any meaningful reason not to make it. Alternate options (new page title entirely, merge, etc.) are also potentially viable. prat (talk) 03:09, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  • You said 'please do not move war' but re-moved the page even though I explained why it is not suitable with the old title. You have given no evidence at all for your perspective. Please state it over here where it can be discussed. prat (talk)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Reported for Edit Warring[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

SuperCoach[edit]

Greetings StAnselm, I noticed you reverted changes I made to the SuperCoach wiki page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercoach My amendments are correct given this page is not a SuperCoach AFL page nor a SuperCoach NRL page. It describes SuperCoach as a franchise which is both NRL and AFL run by the Daily Telegraph and Herald-Sun. Given there is also an SuperCoach NRL both are relevant to the wiki community. The SuperCoach AFL should have its own page. This wiki page should be reverted to the amendments I made as they are more accurate that the current page.

best regards Peter

I don't see the need for a page about the franchise - we have articles on the two competitions. IF you really feel the need for a franchise page, start a new article. StAnselm (talk) 00:12, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

The title of the page is not SuperCoach AFL though. It is SuperCoach, which is not correct. The overarching franchise is SuperCoach and the two games that sit below it are SuperCoach AFL and SuperCoach NRL. Therefore "Supercoach" as a wiki page is incorrect. SuperCoach AFL needs its own page. Not the other way around. Peter

Fair enough - I moved it to AFL SuperCoach. StAnselm (talk) 03:04, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Great - thank you. I agree there doesn't need to be three wiki pages. Peter

Mohit Ahlawat[edit]

Hi, do we usually have dab lists when there are only two entries, eg: here. Both of those appear in Ahlawat now and I have a vague feeling that we should use one of the "other uses" templates as a dabhat at the top of the two bio articles. I may be wrong, though! - Sitush (talk) 20:30, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Hmmm - I think we normally do. I don't think it's worth redirecting Mohit Ahlawat to Ahlawat. StAnselm (talk) 20:34, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I've tried CSD G6, as you now see below. No idea if it will do the job because this is new to me and it has an incoming redirect from Mohit Ahlawat (disambiguation). I think the redirect can be CSD'd as orphaned if the G6 works. - Sitush (talk) 07:02, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mohit Ahlawat[edit]

A tag has been placed on Mohit Ahlawat requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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 deleted 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. Sitush (talk) 07:00, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Tuscon[edit]

The other problem with having Tuscon is there are only two entries. See WP:ONEOTHER. It is strongly discourage to have a dab page with only two entries. And be honest, over 99% of the people looking for Tuscon are looking for the city, not an obscure convention. We can drag it to an RFC but honestly, this is a text book case of why we don't do dabs with two entries, particularly since one is more obvious than the other.

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:13, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Methuselah[edit]

Hi again! We worked well together on the Delilah article. I just nominated Methuselah for GA; would you like to review it? It's (inevitably) very short.MagicatthemovieS (talk) 03:26, 3 September 2018 (UTC)MagicatthemovieS

It looks good! However, I haven't done a GA review for years, so I think I'll pass. StAnselm (talk) 04:32, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
