Welcome to my talk page.

Please note that I prefer to have substantial discussions about individual articles on their own talk pages rather than here, so that all editors of those articles can see them and contribute.

Please also note that I prefer conversations to be in one place. I will reply to comments where they are left and, if necessary, transfer comments back to the original talk page where the conversation was initiated.

Oh come on[edit]

The very first Hillary RM on record is Talk:Hillary_Clinton/Archive_5#Requested_move, filed by you back in 2007. It managed to get one support besides you and ten opposes. Back then I think the style was to close with 'No consensus to move' regardless of the level of support, whereas later 'no consensus' meant something close and/or complicated. But if ever there was an RM where there was indeed "consensus" on what the right title should be, this is it. Yeah, we're both involved parties like you say, but how else would you interpret this one? Wasted Time R (talk) 01:04, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Eh, never mind, this was too worked up on my part. Wasted Time R (talk) 03:44, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
In that case I'll not comment on substance and all I'll say is that my memory of those days is different. Ever since becoming an admin back in 2005 it's been my understanding that "no consensus" should never be used when it's a clear "keep" or "not moved" and that's not something that's only developed since.

Request for comment[edit]

An editor has asked for a discussion on the deprecation of Template:English variant notice. Since you've had some involvement with the English variant notice template, you might want to participate in the discussion if you have not already done so.Godsy(TALKCONT) 07:11, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2015 August 3#Category:1968 US Open Series[edit]

Regarding [1], {{Year by category}} has an odd feature: If subcat is omitted or empty then the main category for the year is automatically added instead, in this case Category:1968. I avoided that by stuffing another existing cat in there in [2] (my edit summary should have said Category:1968 instead of just 1968). I also removed the existing explicit listing of that category although it doesn't matter whether the category is added once or twice. I have done the same for all years 1969 [3] to 2003 so those years at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Working/Manual#Other should be ready for category deletion (I'm an admin but not used to processing that page). Category:US Open Series by year shows 1969 to 2003 are all empty now. PrimeHunter (talk) 03:40, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
