Flags next to names of executives in infoboxes[edit]

I noticed you've been adding flags next to the names of executives in the infoboxes. Now I love flags, I think they can add a lot to articles by making it easier to get information at a quick glance, but adding flags for the national origin of executives seems a bit much. Is this really necessary? What value do you believe it adds? The national origin of an executive is not one of the most important things about them.

But also it introduces the tricky question of what flag to put for someone. Take for example Rupert Murdoch -- born and raised in Australia, but now an American citizen, living in the US. American flag or Australian flag? And I noticed on National Australia Bank you put both the Australian flag and the Lebanese flag next to Ahmed Fahour. Why? He was born in Australia, is an Australian citizen, and lives in Australia. His only tie to Lebanon is his ethnicity. Surely putting flags next to executives' names to indicate their ethnicity is not warranted. --Crocodile Punter 14:41, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

I like to see the effective use of flags, and don't entirely agree with the essay WP:FLAGCRUFT, but these edits, like the one to Optus do appear to cause issues rather than add value - as discussed in the essay. -- Rob.au 13:26, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

What Issues?

The fact that the Optus leadership is not Australian? I think you have issues. Tri400 05:17, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

I think you have seriously misinterpreted my issue with your edits to the Optus article. Firstly, you continue to cause collateral damage while reinstating the flagcruft, on your latest edit you have caused the following damage to the article (and not for the first time):
  • Paul O'Sullivan's position title is Chief Exectuive not CEO. Check the Optus website, the difference is notable.
  • Optus main offices are in Sydney, but they operate all over Australia. Hence why it is important to leave the (headquarters) notation
Secondly, I notice on subsequent edits you have become focussed on asserting the Singaporean nationality of two high level staff members, when this is genuinely irrelevant. The article is about Optus, not about the individuals. The article already outlines Optus' relationship to SingTel, in that it is a wholly owned subsidiary. With your latest edit I am finding it increasingly difficult to assume good faith in your edits. Now that I have started losing this ability to assume good faith in your edits, I notice that the majority of your use of flags has been to demonstrate alleged non-Australians in charge of Australian companies. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a politcal tool, and this should be carried out elsewhere. -- Rob.au 14:18, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant to add the summary - biographical information (such as nationality) belongs on articles about individuals and elsewhere only where a person's nationality is important to the subject of the other article. A person's ability to perform their duties is not impacted by their nationality, so it doesn't belong in company infoboxes. -- Rob.au 15:33, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Optus Headquaters and CEO[edit]

The article already says "Headquaters" then you are saying it again. That's stupid and its not on any other telco's page.

Chief Executive is CEO, those terms are interchangable. [1] If you believe that they are not, point me to a single page on the web where it says they are different.

My point exactly is that foreign members in a management team can and does bring benefits to an organization. If you disagree with the wikipedia policy on the use of flagicons, that's your problem. It offers a quick glance at the origins of the management team, as on many other pages, especially if there is nothing written about the management team. Tri400 01:55, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

I don't think your point of "foreign members in a management team can and does bring benefits to an organisation" is appropriate in a neutral point of view encyclopedia article. This is not neutral, it is expressing and prompting a non-neutral opinion and as such should be avoided. Please read WP:NPOV. Further, there is no specific wikipedia policy on flagicons, just a strong body of opinion that under existing policies they tend to add clutter and don't add value to the article. My stance is that your use of flagicons has two impacts - it adds clutter AND it causes the articles to be non-neutral. This is a problem. As for the position title, Optus refers to it as "Chief Executive" - this makes it the only accurate why to describe it. -- Rob.au 05:14, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
I would also appreciate it if you would remain civil in these discussions. We have a difference of opinion, but there is no need to say "I think you have issues" or "That's stupid" or "that's your problem". Please see WP:CIVIL. By all means, disagree with me - but please be civil about it. -- Rob.au 05:29, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Paspaley[edit]

A tag has been placed on Paspaley, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group or service and which would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the general criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 11, as well as the guidelines on spam.

If you can indicate why the subject of this article is not blatant advertising, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would help make it encyclopedic, as well as adding any citations from reliable sources to ensure that the article will be verifiable. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Andante1980 12:58, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Death of Bob Woolmer[edit]

Hi, regards your reversion of my redirect and your comparison with the OJ Simpson case;

  • Wikipedia is an encyclopedia not a newspaper WP:NOT
  • Information in Wikipedia must be verified and attributed WP:V WP:A
  • No original research WP:OR
  • Currently on wikipedia we have a problem that a majority of our 1.7million articles are of poor quality. Many are little more than stubs.

Currently the cause Woolmer's death is unknown and the subject of much media speculation. It's the subject of the media and so there's a lot of interest in it. This means there's a lot of people adding to the article. Having two articles means that their efforts are being split into two articles.

The best way to achieve our target of quality articles is to firstly add the event to the parent article. After the flurry of public interest and associated edits has slowed down, and we have all the facts (ie the official police reports are concluded). Then the article can be copy edited and brought to a stable state. The references can be checked and cleaned up. Then and only then are we in a position to see if creating a retrospective article on the subject of his death/murder/accident/whatever (we just don't know yet). In fact it's easier at that point to cut and paste the section out and write a summary for the main article than it is to clean up two duplicate articles and attempt to merge the section of the main into the sub article.

OJ Simpson's case pre-dates Wikipedia itself, and as such there's a large body of reference material that can be drawn upon. In OJ's case a retrospective article can be written as there's a lot of source material to write a retrospective quality article.

Just a few things for you to consider for the future.

Cheers, Monotonehell 17:07, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Because that would be counter-productive. The Woolmer article was already in full swing with the death. There was a concerted effort to keep the speculative rumours out of the article. The second article was simply a cut and paste of the original section. The main point here is that the creation of the second article was premature. We, as an encyclopaedia, should wait for the full story to come out before creating a new article. Otherwise we are being a newspaper. That's what Wikinews is for. --Monotonehell 18:15, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Pathologist[edit]

Can you please take care with this pathologist thing. The edit summary where you said 'first pathologist is incompetent Indian' bordered on racism. Indeed, I don't see any need to mention the fact he's from India at all as he's been working in Jamaica for 12 years and is a government pathologist. It's not as if he was specially flown in from India for the job. Furthermore, this pathologist thing doesn't appear to have attracted much controversy. Only one person has outright criticised him. Another said maybe it was mishandled but maybe it was just the way he wanted to handle things. From what I can tell, neither had even looked at the report or spoken to the pathologist in question. Therefore, this pathologist thing should only get brief mention if at all. And we have no idea why an additional pathologist was flown in. It isn't uncommon for multiple & more experienced patholigists to be used in high profile cases. Assuming it was because the first pathologist is incomponetent is grossly unfair. Please remember BLP. Incidently, I for one ruled out a heart attack fairly early on. One of the early statements from Pervez Mir mentioned blood and vomit in the room and/or on the body. For whatever reason, the media didn't pick up on this directly but it seemed fairly unlikely to me it was a heart attack. Nil Einne 23:53, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

That's not racism because i myself am Indian. Tri400 00:42, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

August 2011[edit]

Hi! Let's look at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gurgaon&diff=442147063&oldid=442029837

The source does say that Gurgaon is a suburb. But this is in an American sense, in that it is a city nearby a larger city. In some commonwealth countries, a suburb is a neighborhood of a larger city. In the American English, a suburb usually describes a separate city (sometimes it can be used to refer to an outerlying neighborhood of a larger city)

Also your edit did not provide a source saying that the description of Gurgaon being a "suburb" was incorrect.

This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Solomon7968 (talk) 06:14, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
