Gidday Thor, again thank you for trying to save the MRCCR page I was going to edit again but waiting on further information that was in the pipeline, like the expected formal recognition as a sporting breed and copies of journal articles. I will also hit the net again to verify all your research and add more. I cannot understand why this topic needs more proof than others.... To me it wiki is where you first go to learn something. Having this article omitted is a serious flaw in their original tenant.

The last picture you re-added of the hunting party I took off as I had more recent information that it was taken in the UK at the turn of the century and not of MRCCRs as we originally though. D mentias (talk) 02:26, 1 March 2013 (UTC)D_mentiasD mentias (talk) 02:26, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hi Thor,

thank you for your astounding efforts to resolve the issues with the Murray River Curly Coated Retriever page to try to prevent it from being (I believe) incorrectly deleted. Without your hard work and knowledge of how Wikipedia works I believe the page would be gone with little hope of being reinstated. I am saddened that some of the other editors didn't take the same time and care to understand subject matter before deciding to bin it.

I'd only ever done anonymous edits because it didn't seem worthwhile to set up and account but now I see that in situations like this I left myself without a voice. I have set one up now - nothing like slamming the barn door after the horse has bolted. :-)

Source for Gebel el-Silisila[edit]

Thanks for all the work you did on Gebel el-Silsila. One of the sources is not reliable however? You have used "Intrepid Radio broadcast, 2015 May 31 Sunday 9-11 p.m. CDT (2015 June 01 UTC), Wisconsin, U.S.A.". That is not a source that can be verified. Sources are usually (if not always) in printed form. I think it should be removed and other reliable, verifiable sources should be found. I wanted to contact you before editing it out though. greetings AB (talk) 20:28, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Gebel el-Silsila
    • Radio programs are perfectly acceptable sources as they are one of many types of media. Books are another media form, the one I prefer personally the most (just like you do). Besides, it makes it more interesting for the using Wikipedian to know that there is an archived audio recording out there. The present referencing for the entire article is still inadequate but undoubtedly will be improved upon [an issue that plagues all of Wikipedia]. I was aware of the items and Gebel el-Silsila before I found the archived program. Just decided to dig a little to improve referencing. I think adding referencing is certainly preferable to deleting it! Even the ones you have can be further referenced. If I can find the program I am sure others can too. To prove the point, I am not in the Mid-West or Wisconsin. I am in Los Angeles. On another matter and for your kind general knowledge, Wikipedia discourages bulleted lists of factoids within articles. Wikipedia prefers an article in prose. I think the few shrines and stelae listed are OK for now. Enjoying your input too! To a better Wikipedia! Cheers! Thor Dockweiler (talk) 22:19, 11 June 2015 (UTC).
      • I asked others as well, and you're right. My bad! I have downloaded Porter & Moss Vol 5, so when I have more time I can try to add some information about the archaeological site. I will put it in prose form. P&M mentions a temple of Ramesses II which looks to me may be the (re)discovered temple in question? Will need to look into that.
