Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya[edit]

I note you are changing the name of the Circuit de Catalunya to the above. If you have a source for this name I suggest you give it in an Edit summary. if not, I suggest you stop making these changes as your work will almost certainly be reverted. Britmax (talk) 21:49, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

I changing the name to official name and give wikilink to valid name of article, not to redirect. Subtropical-man (talk) 21:54, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Great. It would help if you would leave an Edit summary as we have constant problems with vandals who can change dozens of articles for no reason, meaning another editor has to change them all back rather than doing something useful. And with no Edit summary the difference between legitimate edits and vandalism is hard to see as sometimes there isn't any difference. Britmax (talk) 21:59, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Ok, edit summary. Subtropical-man (talk) 22:12, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
Hi Subtropical-man. I have reverted your edits for F1 seasons before 2014 - WP:F1 convention is to refer to circuits by what they were called at the time, e.g. Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari is referred to as Autodromo Dino Ferrari before 1988, when the name was changed.

Re:Can't Get You Out of My Head[edit]

Hi. Okay yes maybe I acted a little too hastily on the five million thing, but a web source I found only lists sales of over five million. (http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/yradish/biggest-selling-singles-since-the-year-2000.html). I have no problem with it having more than nine million copies sold but a web source or a source you can click and see for yourself would be much better. Do you have any source that confirms this other than that book? --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 14:48, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Barcelona bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Barcelona bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Barcelona bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.--FoxyOrange (talk) 15:12, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Green rain[edit]

Hi...since I am a helping contributor I was a bit put off when you reverted all of my edits (at least half would've been nice just for good faith). It's not like I was vandalising or the fact that I done it everywhere (I only aimed capital cities). After all, there are still cities with the green precip boxes (obviously not made me) - shouldn't they be reverted too? Oh, I thought the green precip figures make them standout against the temp lows (which can also be blue in colour).

As I asked on my talkbox, may I add the green colour to the climate boxes of Sydney suburbs - there are only around 6-7 of them. Would that 'hurt'? I believe I did overdo it (I was slightly provoked since I got a 'thank' from a user). So, may I add 'green precip' to the Western Sydney suburbs? Again, Sydney's climate box is green, so why not its suburbs? I'd love to have a chat about it and have your thoughts. Meganesia (talk) 11:56, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

EDIT: There was no consensus at. Shouldn't this page apply to you: Don't revert due solely to "no consensus". I believe I can revert most of my additions back, because this wasn't fair. Meganesia (talk) 16:01, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Meganesia, currently:

  • there is slight consensus
  • previously and also partly currently existed status quo
  • there are still objections, comments, new ideas - there are still discussion (for example violet colour for cold temperatures or other) - so, absolutely should pause of change colours, absolutely unacceptable changes on a large scale (dozens, hundreds changes in articles).
  • in this case works the principle of Wikipedia:CYCLE (edit, revert = discussion and consensus), so.... your edit, revert (for example by me) = must to be discussion and consensus
  • in particular, other (not all, but sufficient that part of the) users (including me) are opposed to your change, so... must to be consensus.

Generally, as you can see (five sentences above), your changes can not be done. Further discussion is in one place - here. Subtropical-man (talk) 17:43, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Again, the slight consensus comes from the silent consensus from the weather box since it hasn't changed that much. I think for now, stop the colour changes (both of you). Subtropical-man, you stated "I have a big impression that one person spoke with himself above, hmmm." would imply that I am running a sockpuppet account. That is not true. I rarely edit Australian city articles and I have never uploaded any photos yet. You better provide ample evidence for that statement though because accusing someone of sockpuppetry without evidence is wrong. Ssbbplayer (talk) 18:09, 5 December 2013 (UTC) Ssbbplayer,

  • not accusing someone of sockpuppetry
  • "stop the colour changes (both of you)" - no, I not change colour, I just keep watch that no one was doing it. Subtropical-man (talk) 18:18, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Ok. I thought it was. It just seems like it. It was a misunderstanding. Easier to understand now. Ssbbplayer (talk) 18:21, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

So far, I have seen that violet colours are still supported by a clear the majority and has not been implemented yet. I wonder if it can be done soon? Ssbbplayer (talk) 18:23, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Change color from blue to violet in the code of weather infobox - theoretically around one-two days, but we need discussion about radiation/varieties of violet to use. Subtropical-man (talk) 18:27, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
I have restored the discussion on it. It should be up on the talk page by now. Ssbbplayer (talk) 18:36, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
Ok. Subtropical-man (talk) 18:38, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Removing Demographia references on Barcelona[edit]

Hi,

I see you've reverted my edit to remove the demographia reference on Barcelona stating "revert - discussion hidden from other users, too early for mass changes"

I would like to point out that the discussion wasn't hidden in any way, and I believe the consensus was that the source was unreliable to be used in articles. Anna Frodesiak was also of the view that the unreliablity was demonstrated by the discussion there. Given that there was nobody disagreeing with removing an unreliable source inserted by a potential COI editor, could you please explain why you reverted me, and if you considered the link to be a source that shouldn't have been removed?

Some clarification would be good in this regard.

Cheers, TheOriginalSoni (talk) 16:09, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

I totally support the removal, as stated here User talk:Anna Frodesiak#Demographia yet again. For the record, I do not think TheOriginalSoni was reckless at all, as he even posted at my talk to be sure.

That thread at RS noticeboard was there until everyone had their say. The archiving time that is set is appropriate. Do you think it should be longer?

Also, what was needed was not a few more voices to even things out. That would not have been enough. The result would have been exclusion due to being disputed with no consensus for inclusion. What was needed was an enormous amount of voices suddenly making an incredible case for inclusion. There was a tiny chance of that. When content, including references, is disputed, the burden is on those who wish it included to get support, not the other way around. That's my position. You are welcome to post again at the RS board, but expect the same results. Respectfully, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:56, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi Anna Frodesiak
"The archiving time that is set is appropriate. Do you think it should be longer?" - this is not problem, problem is lack of information about discussion about remove the source. I noticed it only when User TheOriginalSoni remove links from articles, despite the fact that the long time I active in the topic - I noticed it after the fact.
Between 250 and 300 pages of en.Wikipedia uses Demographia, few articles based on Demographia (as primary source), currently Demographia is main source about urban areas on Wikipedia (not only English Wikipedia). Quiet and weak compromise is not enough to remove such an important source. Should be inform others users on appropriate talk of articles, to continue the discussion. Subtropical-man (talk) 15:19, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Hi, I'm still waiting for you to act per the points Anna noted on my talk page. Please start a new discussion on this issue. I'm otherwise planning to resume the removal of the links in some reasonable time. Thanks, TheOriginalSoni (talk) 20:28, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
    No, please read own talk page, Anna wrote "Start a new post at RS/N" on your talk page. You, or Anna or other, please "Start a new post at RS/N" + "Add a link there to the old discussion in the archives and state that you want open the matter again, and why" + "Consider linking to this thread" + "Let User:Elockid know" + "Post at a bunch of article talk pages that use this source, pointing them to the RS/N discussion". I support it, I oppose for your "Please start a new discussion on this issue. I'm otherwise planning to resume the removal of the links". Subtropical-man (talk) 20:47, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Err, no. Anna was clearly telling you to start the new thread and state that you want open the matter again, and why, and Consider saving your rationale for that new post. Please start the new thread with your rationale so we can end this problem quickly. TheOriginalSoni (talk) 21:07, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Done. I restart discussion about the source Demographia: World Urban Areas. New discussion is here. Regards. Subtropical-man (talk) 15:18, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Many Thanks for FINALLY updating the climate data of Istanbul. I have been waiting for this for more than 2 years!! I really appreciate that you included three different graphs showing the three neighborhoods respectively because climate- wise, they are different and including them is a must. Since I assisted to many climate conferences in the UN campus of Bonn (GER), I can tell that the topic "climate of Istanbul" has been lately a hot one. That is, no agreement on the salient climate characteristics of Istanbul has been so far reached because of the complications, which are explained by the borderline climate classification of Istanbul. Now you made it finally clear for us! Many thanks. And I do totally agree with you that Istanbul has a borderline Cfa, Csa and Cfb. Some have said that the Cfb is not present at all. I disagree. Though I would have wished to see the number of precipitation days for the other two graphs (also if possible sunshine hours), I congratulate you for your work. --VMAHALLESI (talk) 16:54, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

PORNBIO[edit]

Hi,

Not sure when you last looked at PORNBIO but your recollection of what it says in that AFD doesn't match what it says now. In fact, I have been around 2006 and some of the stuff you quote is only vaguely ringing a bell. Could I ask you to review the policy as it stands now and consider updating you vote to reflect what it says?Thanks. Spartaz Humbug! 15:44, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

WP:BRD[edit]

First of all, don't template the regulars. I am well-versed in Wikipedia's customs, guidelines and regulations, so I have no need for you to send me standard, boilerplate notes. Second, please read WP:BRD. The guideline is that any editor can make a bold edit, but any other editor is well within his/her rights to revert that edit; the next step is for you (as the BOLD editor) to start a discussion for others to contribute to. You must not engage in an edit war. Please abide by the regulations and I will have a discussion with you, but if you start an edit war, I will treat you as a disruptive editor. – PeeJay 21:03, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't matter whether it's an essay, a guideline, a policy or just something someone wrote on a piece of toilet paper; the editors of Wikipedia mostly abide by WP:BRD, and if I asked anyone from WP:FOOTY about the appropriate course of action here, they would undoubtedly recommend the course of action suggested by that page. Trust me, we both have the same goals at heart here – that is, to make the best encyclopaedia we can – but it just so happens that we have a difference of opinion that other people need to weigh in on. The discussion suggested at WP:BRD isn't for us to hash out the same old arguments again and again, it's for everyone else to have the opportunity to speak without the need for endless edit warring. Now, are you going to play by the rules or not? – PeeJay 21:10, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
So are you going to start the discussion or not? You want the info included, you have to start the discussion. – PeeJay 20:08, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Re your post on my Talk page: If you had read the article's Talk page, you will have noticed that I had already raised the issue for discussion. I did not remove the data, nor did I amend the content of the article other that to add a label as specified in the wiki help pages concerning questionable sources.

As it stands, the comment and the labelling of the article is still relevant; even though the data is available in the PDF documents, the source of the data is not explicate - i.e. the source is not clearly identified in the documents. The documents are also hosted on a site which can not be identifiable as relevant, and has no link to the purported source of the data. In short, the data may be valid, but the citations are not.

In addition, please note that I am not an inexperienced editor, and that it is not appropriate to be making threats. BlueSulla (talk) 15:36, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

List of tallest buildings in Genoa[edit]

Hi! I'm Cirobob (Roberto), the user who removed Leonardo Towers and Gadolla Tower from the list of tallest buildings in Genoa. I posted this message in the talk of the same article too.

Speaking about the Leonardo Towers, they relate to a new hi-tech pole which is giong to be built in the suburbs of Genoa. At a first stage, in 2004, the project was committed to Renzo Piano, who designed the 12 Leonardo Towers. Nevertheless, just a year later, for the design of the executable project, the work passed to the architect Mario Bellini, who planned a different type of district, with many 8-10-store buildings and only two 140m towers, the ones I added to the list (called S-4a and S-4b), which in the article are now mentioned altogether as "Torri degli Erzelli", which means "Erzelli Towers" but they're actually two separate buildings. Since then the preliminary project by Renzo Piano was completely abandoned, while the new one was included in city masterplan. Then in 2009 work started and in 2012 the first building of the plan was built, while the construction of the two towers have to start yet.[3][4] I apologize not having speaked about the topic before updating the article and actually I can be wrong, however I thought and still think that cancelled projects should not be part of the article.

On the other hand, speaking about Gadolla Tower, actually the project has never been cancelled as Leonardo Tower's one, it just remained a project and in the future it can be reproposed, so in this case I'm almost certain I did a mistake cancelling it.

Let me know what you think about it, Roberto

All the Lovers[edit]

Hi subtropical-man,

For some reasons you reverted the edit I did yesterday and I would like to know why. If it was concerning the sales figure I added, I would understand, but InfoDisc has been used in some of Kylie's articles. However I think the clean up is pretty justified as the template:singlechart is easier to work with and adding refnames in each chart entries makes the code less tedious as manually typing refences would become useless. I hope you understand. I wouldn't be editing articles without a reason.

Thanks!

The article Adventure science fiction has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Not a recognised subgenre. This article instead describes space opera, military science fiction, science fiction opera, cyberpunk etc.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

I think 10 years are too short of a time period for climatic averages.

Hi,

You recently undid my edits for LUZs. I understand why you did so. However, it is entirely uncontroversial to list EU LUZs separately from others as that's what the page is about.

Template:Weather box[edit]

I see you restored the incorrect information to the weather box but didn't bother to take part in the discussion at Template talk:Weather box#Tweaks and corrections. If you had you would have noticed that "Average high temperature during the day (average maximum daytime temperature)" and "Average low temperature at night (average minimum night-time temperature)" does not apply to every country in the world. Those two statements indicate that the temperatures are only from a certain part of the 24 hour period and that part of the period called day or night is undefined. Because of your restoration of those phrases all the weather boxes for Australia, Canada and the United States are incorrect. None of those countries use a partial 24 hour period to obtain their maximum and minimum temperatures and for all I know there may be others. Do you know which countries use part of the 24 hour period for their maximum and minimum? CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 21:43, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm Dennis Bratland. I noticed that you made a comment on the page Talk:Malta that didn't seem very civil, so it has been removed. Wikipedia needs people like you and me to collaborate, so it's one of our core principles to interact with one another in a polite and respectful manner. If you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page.

  • This is not exactly a personal attack, but it's close. Labeling other editors as "EU opponents" for rhetorical purposes is another example of commenting on contributors instead of on content. Please do not make unfounded and irrelevant accusations against others. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 16:42, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
It appears that you have been canvassing—leaving messages on a biased choice of users' talk pages to notify them of an ongoing community decision, debate, or vote—in order to influence User talk:Rob984. While friendly notices are allowed, they should be limited and nonpartisan in distribution and should reflect a neutral point of view. Please do not post notices which are indiscriminately cross-posted, which espouse a certain point of view or side of a debate, or which are selectively sent only to those who are believed to hold the same opinion as you. Remember to respect Wikipedia's principle of consensus-building by allowing decisions to reflect the prevailing opinion among the community at large. Thank you.

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding personal attacks and canvassing. The thread is Personal attacks and canvassing.The discussion is about the topic Malta. Thank you. Dennis Bratland (talk) 19:38, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Nothing I said even remotely fringes on Wikipedia's policy on harassment, I just don't believe your rather weak explanation. That's not harrassment. Anyways, regardless, as I said on the discussion, any further complaints about personal attacks or canvassing, you're blocked. If you need further input on any discussions, leave a neutral "Please comment at this talk page discussion at a WikiProject. Sergecross73 msg me 22:26, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
And now I'm still getting complaints about your conduct. I can't stress how close you are to a block right now. All these comments of yours about people being pro/anti US/EUR are disruptive. They are entirely unnecessary to the discussion, and are only serving to upset others. As an editor, Im advising you to stop arguing in the RFC, as you've made your point abundantly clear, you can't seem to control yourself in your comments, and all you need at this point is more editors giving a stance. As an Admin, I'm telling you that "disruptive comments" to the list of things that is going to get you a block if there are any more problems coming from you.

Friendly advice[edit]

Subtropical-man, I'm KoshVorlon, I'm not an admin, nor anything other than a user, just like you are, so what I'm about to say to you is a suggestion only. You can ignore this, and it's fine, however, I'd strongly suggest you take break from editing EU articles, you're getting really heated about it, and it can cause you to make pretty dumb decisions. Please note I'm not saying you're pretty dumb, I'm saying it can cause you to make dumb decisions. I oughta know. I'm currently T-Banned (Indefinite T-Ban) from any mention of Transgend issues, any where on the Wiki. This was due to me loosing my cool and threatening to edit war with the admin.

I can assure you, you don't want that , nor a block, so, just take a break and cool down, it's worth it to do so! KoshVorlon Rassekali ternii i mlechnye puti 15:49, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@KoshVorlon: EU articles (EU topic) I edit very rarely - maybe a few times a year. I have no idea what you're talking. Subtropical-man talk

Rain colour[edit]

Cheers, no problem. I have used both and prefer to use green whenever I create new articles because it reflects pretty well on how nature looks and goes better if precipitation days and humidity are included in my opinion. It gets a bit to blue-ish for my liking if precipitation is blue as well - even though of course water looks blue in the ocean. Green is pretty much standard when it comes to Oregon and Washington for example. But as long as I'm okay for using green for new boxes I am fine. I'd like to add that I appreciate that you are not among those lazy Wikipedians reverting everything and that you left the humidity and precipitation day edits up.

Lommaren (talk) 17:54, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I complimented you for not being a lazy Wikipedian. You must have greatly misunderstood? :/ I actually think you did well in only changing what you did not like rather than removing everything.

Lommaren (talk) 20:20, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Haha what is going on here? I am not in any way insulting you haha. And how many edits someone has made doesn't define their competence for sure? Let's just knock it off and be friends :) Good night.

List of tallest buildings in Europe[edit]

I have alredy create a thread in the talk page List of tallest buildings in European Union, but it doesn't matter for someone who is "a citizen of the European Union confederation" I'm not interested in arguments like: this is so, because is so. Such articles as: Kosovo, need an objective point of view, not the point of view of frustrated people who got the exclusive right to write history. The discussion of such frustrated people as you, is pointless. People who should keep an eye on the basic principles of this project, break it, go on block me you are an ignorant optimist without objective point of view, like most people here. --Muffi (talk) 19:27, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Malta[edit]

Hi, you reverted my edit to Malta saying that it needed to be sourced but I was just using info from further down in the article (which listed all of the small islands along with the three major islands). Even if we don't add that number, can we change the wording from referring to Malta as an archipelago of "a few islands"? It sounds very un-encyclopedic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.27.184.85 (talk) 02:54, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

@70.27.184.85: If not "few", you can use word "several" or number with source. "21" break Wikipedia:No original research. Subtropical-man talk

Climate of Malta[edit]

I'm interested in why you reverted my changes to Climate of Malta. The English in the article could use a bit of improving, and using double-bold text in the header of the table looks to me out of place in Wikipedia. I didn't make any changes to the content of the article, merely to its appearance and grammar. Daß Wölf (talk) 18:50, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

About the hours arrangement - you're right, I did change the meaning by mistake. However, I think "most optimal arrangement" might constitute original research. It would probably be good to find a reliable source about that.
About the table, yes I did remove the bold. That made it look like the other tables in the article. Why do you think that is bad? Daß Wölf (talk) 19:17, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
! does make the text bold, at least in Firefox. When ''' is added around the header text, the text becomes very thick bold, which to me looks thicker than the headers of other tables in the article. Also, it doesn't matter if there's ''' after the text or not; it may look untidy in source code, but it does nothing (see for example unclosed <small> tags in the temperature row).
