References to LDS Church name change reverted[edit]

Please provide context why you removed the name change I applied to the Saint Peter page. The name of the church referenced is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. According to their public style guide, references to them as the LDS Church are incorrect. Also references to their members as Mormons are also discouraged. Here is the public style guide. https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/style-guide. Changes occurred on this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Peter. Revision number 874115708

Thank you for your help

Travismurdock (talk) 06:58, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia is an independent encyclopedia. Our concern is factual information, not pleasing institutions. However, you will see that the edits I made did not refer to them as LDS Church but Latter-day Saints. As for "Mormons" being discourage, I recommend reading Mormons, which states that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are encouraged not to refer to themselves as Mormons, but gives no teaching on what those outside the Church are supposed to do. Mormonism also encompasses other bodies outside of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 17:04, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Pontifical medal[edit]

I want to know the reason why you removed my edit. DizzinessOfFreedom (talk) 03:32, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

As I said, Breitbart is not recognized as a credible source. It also gave incorrect information. She was awarded a Pontifical Knighthood, being made a Dame Commander of the Order of St. Gregory and the award was not given to her in connection to her work for women's reproductive rights, but for her work as a government official. She happens to support abortion, which may have caused controversy, but that is not the same claim. If there is/was controversy regarding her award, this needs to be cited with credible references that are not from a political opinion and commentary website. As far as categories such as "Liberal theologians" and "Anti-Modernism" goes, those are orphaned categories. They are not connected to any other categories on Wikipedia. Furthermore, they are too vague. What is "liberal"? It has different definitions depending on the context, and who decides what a "liberal" theologian is? "Anti-Modernism" has the same issue. It's too vague. Is it Anti-Modernism in the Catholic Church? In Christianity? In visual art? In architecture? It's not specific and does not improve the quality of the article. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 03:39, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

It did not say in the article that the medal was given to her because she was an a pro abortion activist, but that it was given to a pro abortion activist. I cited another source. DizzinessOfFreedom (talk) 03:45, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Lilianne Ploumen is a Dutch politician who has done activism work regarding women's reproductive health. She is not notable because of her activism. There was no mention as to why the award was given or who she is, other than a "abortion rights activist". This implies bias. Catholic News Agency is a reliable source, but you didn't use the article ([1]) to explain the backstory or the reason for the award, which would clarify the incident's supposed controversy:
 "Responding to requests of clarification, Paloma Garcia-Ovejero, deputy director of the Holy See Press Office, said that “the honorific of the St. Gregory the Great Pontifical Order that Liliane Ploumen, then Minister for Development received in June 2017, during the visit of the Dutch Royals to the Holy Father, is part of the diplomatic praxis of the exchange of decorations among delegations during official visits between heads of state and government to the Vatican.” 

It explains why/how such honours are given and that they are not endorsements and have no connection to any activism or pro-abortion policies Ploumen was behind. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 03:49, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

The source of Bishop Fellay calling him a modernist is in the article. It wasnt in the edition summary. You need to look first before making such claims. DizzinessOfFreedom (talk) 03:36, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

See above comment. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 03:39, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

IDB[edit]

Hi there. You've been adding a lot of International Debutante Ball entries to articles where, as far as I can see, they have no place being. I've reverted the adds on articles that I was previously involved with, but thought I should ask you what your position was before I reviewed the others. Cheers, Bromley86 (talk) 01:19, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

As was explained before on this article, you do not need to convert to be received into the Anglican church. You just turn up at the service and join in. It is not the same as more Catholic Christian denominations. DrKay (talk) 16:35, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

As I explained, that is not the case. People can and do convert to the Anglican Church from other denominations, as seen by many categories established on wikipedia. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 01:03, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
You can self-identify as a convert, but you do not have to officially convert. That is the point. DrKay (talk) 06:45, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

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 article's 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. You have performed four reverts within 24 hours on a biography of a living person. DrKay (talk) 16:50, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Cozart-Coley House[edit]

Hello Willthacheerleader18,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Cozart-Coley House for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. ~Mohammad Hossain~ 03:15, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Order of the Dannebrog[edit]

Hello Willthacheerleader18,

I was wondering if you could help me figure out some particulars concerning the Danish honour system, Order of the Dannebrog. According to its Wikipedia page, the class "Grand Commander" is reserved to "persons of princely origin", namely "Royals with close family ties with the Danish Royal House." However, I've found a source for the Danish vice admiral A. H. Vedel that lists him as a "Knight Grand Commander." I have not found anything explaining such a title. Could you help me research this end? It's possible the the actually title Vedel held was simply lost in translation by the producer of the source. Thank you for hearing me out!

Invitation to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:14, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. I couldn't help but notice that you appear to be going through articles about US towns to see if they mention the name of the person they are named after, then you're adding the name to the infobox. The problem is, often the name listed in the article is unsourced, and could be incorrect. I reverted your edits to Hillsborough, North Carolina and Zebulon, North Carolina. Before continuing, could I suggest you go back and check all the edits you've made to be sure they are in fact correct and properly sourced? Thanks a lot.

Greensboro massacre[edit]

Hello Willthacheerleadrer18,

Regarding your recent edit at Greensboro massacre. Thought you might wish to see a discussion involving that subject. It took place on my Talk page, so it's unlikely you would know that it was being discussed.


Per your revert, stating that I "want to develop the idea that white juries inherently favor Nazis and the Klan" is a mistaken view on your part... just like I might be mistaken to say that you are attempting to whitewash the article. -Location (talk) 22:15, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

  • I assume good intentions on your part, which is why I said IF you wanted to develop that line of reasoning, it should be done in the body of the text. I do not assume good intentions on the part of the Chicago newspaper writer. He went out of his way to try to paint the jury decision (if not also the jury members) as racist. It is an inflammatory bit of writing. More yellow journalism than professional journalism. But you were only citing words from the article, which is quite fair in our world. But it does misrepresent the events. The "journalist" had only one reason to mention an all-white jury... to infer some form of racial prejudice. The article was rife with that innuendo, but came up short when it came to supporting facts. Both the jurors and the prosecutor who carried the case for the State support the contention that politics was the deciding factor. If you wanted to say that a Southern jury decided against communists, I think you would be on solid ground, with a good bit of supporting evidence. But all-white...? Why? Gulbenk (talk) 23:40, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Thank you for your thoughtful response. I re-read the Chicago Tribune article more carefully and while I don't believe it to be be yellow journalism, it is clearly an opinion piece and you are correct that it should not be cited the way I placed it in the article. (I did not notice the first time about that it was in the "Perspective" section.) It looks like Charles Madigan, who typically does have a left-of-center POV, thought that the jury should have decided the case differently and he drew attention to the view that many blacks - in context with other contemporary cases - viewed the system of justice as racist. And you are correct that the unnamed author for The New York Times used described the jury that way without any context leaving the reader in infer something from innuendo. I imagine a lot could be written on the various POVs regarding the jury and the verdit (e.g. it does appear as though jury may have disliked communists more than any like or dislike for the Klan[2]). Anyway, my apologies. -Location (talk) 02:39, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Willthacheerleader18, If you have a different point of view, I would like to understand it. Gulbenk (talk) 01:22, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

Carolina Thunderbirds[edit]

The reason I reverted your edits are 1)a very low level minor league hockey team's cheerleaders are not notable for the introduction (the team has not played yet, hence the lack of a body) and 2)your source is an dance class website that makes no mention of the cheer squad. The Thunderbirds' own website makes no mention of a cheer squad so I see no reason for it to be included here, even if you citation was better. (It would also be odd for as even most NHL/AHL/ECHL teams do not have a cheer team, they typically have "ice girls" which can be a dance team but often just come out at intermissions and sweep the ice and interact with fans.) I should also note that based on your edit content, region-based edits, and user name, if you have any affiliation with the organizations you are editing, you absolutely MUST read WP:COI. Yosemiter (talk) 02:48, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

I did not contest your removel the second time, so I see no reason for this post. The website I used did indeed reference the team. However, I understand that it is not considered notable enough for an article. My username is from when I created this account over seven years ago. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 19:48, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
Usually if I remove info twice, I try to explain why per WP:BRD, so this post was as much for me as it was for you. The source/dance class website had one mention for the Thunderbirds, but as I said, there was nothing there about the squad. A news article or a team article about the cheerleaders would have been better. Yosemiter (talk) 21:12, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Teun In der Maur[edit]

Hello, Willthacheerleader18,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Teun In der Maur should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Teun In der Maur .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

Anna Wintour[edit]

While I have thanked you for this edit, I just realized right afterwards that one of the two sources used, Women's Wear Daily, is actually a credible and reliable one, and we should probably incorporate material from it into the article. Daniel Case (talk) 19:55, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Liam Riley for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Liam Riley is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

Speedy deletion nomination of Lady Kitty Spencer[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Lady Kitty Spencer, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, such as at Articles for deletion. When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discussion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

EJ Johnson[edit]

Hi Willthacheerleader18. I ran across EJ Johnson while searching for usage of celebritynetworth.com (which is generally unreliable for biographical per Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_207#www.thefamouspeople.com). Looking the article in more detail, it looks almost like it came from a previously deleted article, but I'm not seeing any log entries for past versions. Did you make it from scratch? --Ronz (talk) 03:58, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes, I wrote it myself. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 04:22, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. You probably saw that I remove the jimmyjazz.com reference as well due to reliability concerns. Looks like there are plenty of far better ones to draw from regardless. Thanks for your work. --Ronz (talk) 04:38, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

More to it than meets "first glance"? Transfeminine[edit]

You reverted a revert of a complete text replacement of the previous article. Please note the ingratiating explanatory summary by that IP:

"there are only two genders milady"

Also please note that the replacement text in Transfeminine exactly(?) duplicates article Sex and gender distinction (which has been around in same form over a year), so methinks the IP was not "on the good side".

Also, the subject matter attracts vandals, as a glance at Sex and gender distinction history will show.

Also, plagiarism to or fro WP in ext page [3] and, apparently, several others (on balance, they are 'quoting' WP?)

I believe very little at first glance here. 'Vandalism' as a judgement cannot be just what meets the eye, but what the page histories and user contributions reveal. Useful side effect of checking out the user contributions is cleaning up all the other badnesses executed, when indeed they are vandals.

Anyway, I'm going to revert your revert of the other revert of ... Arrgh! Shenme (talk) 02:26, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Disrespectful editing & for no reason.[edit]

Do not edit my information again, I have done my research me and 49 others discussed adding that info. Im a lieutenant in local law enforcement in NC and have also done my own personal research. Thanks Mwhitley2x (talk) 22:25, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

I have no idea to what you are referring. If it is about information in an article you have contributed to then I would suggest you include a link to it. I would also like to remind you that no article on Wikipedia "belongs" to anyone, so any information is not "yours". All editors on Wikipedia can contribute to any article. Your rank in local NC law enforcement is irrelevant. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 00:11, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Comment I went back and looked through my edits to find what you were referring to and realized you are upset because I reverted an edit you made on Figure Eight Island. The information you added to the article was not cited with any references. On Wikipedia, material that has no credible source can be removed at any time from an article. I highly doubt you consulted 49 individuals about adding one sentence to an article. And even if you had, you should provide a reference with proper citation. Policy stands with me on this. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 00:17, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Your submission at Articles for creation: Kitty Spencer has been accepted[edit]

Storm Model Management[edit]

Hello friend, I hope you are fine. You are right to point out that few of these models and celebrities are linked to the Storm Model Management through reliable, third-party sources. So I have removed all of those who aren't. Please don’t add again without reliable and authoritative third-party sources. I know you will agree, because just above on this page, your talk page, you wrote to another editor: "The information you added to the article was not cited with any references.

Proposed deletion of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Raleigh[edit]

Hello, Willthacheerleader18. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Raleigh, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

File:Lady Ursula d’Abo.jpeg[edit]

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) 20:02, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Red Links[edit]

I will not stop creating the single Ligon Flynn Red Link in the Figure Eight Island article. Per WP:Red Link, there is no problem with having Red Links for articles that are either forthcoming or should be. Ligon Flynn actually happens to be a noted architect, with a distinctive architectural design imprint, a storied, award-winning career. A study conducted in 2008 showed that red links helped Wikipedia grow, and keep articles from being orphaned from the start. So please stop stripping the Red Link from the article.

You have been blocked temporarily from editing for Edit-warring at Rachel Yeoh and Michelle Yeoh (socialite). The edit-warring was all the more unacceptable because you posted a warning about edit-warring to the other editor involved, making it clear both that you are aware of Wikipedia's edit-warring policy and that the dispute in which you were involved was an edit-war. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.

Request reason:

I understand that engaging in an edit war is against Wikipedia policy and I will not do it again in the future. I was attempting to prevent another editor from continuously making disruptive edits, and on the two occasions I reached out to admins for help I did not receive any, including a request for third-party intervention because the situation was not "discussed on the article's talk page", due to the fact that the other editor refused to engage with me on the talk page despite my multiple requests.

You're no longer blocked. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 22:38, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Using proper titles for Ethiopian royalty and nobility[edit]

Please adhere to the proper titles for Ethiopian nobility and royalty. H.I.H. is reserved for members of the royal family by blood not by marriage. Also, the male descendants inherit the title of prince but "princess" is not inherited nor is it automatic at the point of marriage, but rather it is bestowed by the emperor at his discretion after (1) a woman of the royal family comes of age or (2) when a woman is married into the family. This is solely at teh discretion of the Emperor. There are many members of the royal family who have not been bestowed the title and are direct descendants of a crowned monarch. These mistaken appropriations are the application of western views of monarchic structure to a much older Ethiopian monarchy. Please see the below information available on Wikipedia on "Ethiopian aristocratic and court titles" which outlines the proper uses of titles and honorifics.


Imperial and royal titles[edit] Negusa Nagast[edit]


Emperor Tewodros II of the Ethiopian Empire. The Negusa Nagast (Ge'ez: ንጉሠ ነገሥት nəgusä nägäst, "King of Kings") was the Emperor of Ethiopia. Although several kings of Aksum used this style, until the restoration of the Solomonic dynasty under Yekuno Amlak, rulers of Ethiopia generally used the style of Negus, although "King of Kings" was used as far back as Ezana.

The full title of the Emperor of Ethiopia was Negusa Nagast and Seyoume Igziabeher (Ge'ez: ሥዩመ እግዚአብሔር; "Elect of God"). The title Moa Anbessa Ze Imnegede Yehuda ("Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah") always preceded the titles of the Emperor. It was not a personal title but rather referred to the title of Jesus and placed the office of Christ ahead of the Emperor's name in an act of Imperial submission. Until the reign of Yohannes IV, the Emperor was also Neguse Tsion (Ge'ez: ንጉሠ ጽዮን, nəgusä tsiyon), "King of Zion"), whose seat was at Axum, and which conferred hegemony over much of the north of the Empire.

The Emperor was referred to by the dignities of the formal Girmawi (Ge'ez: ግርማዊ, gärimawi, "His Imperial Majesty"), in common speech as Janhoy (Ge'ez: ጃንሆይ janihoy, "Your [Imperial] Majesty, or lit. "sire" ), in his own household and family as Getochu (our Master in the plural), and when referred to by name in the third person with the suffix of Atse (effectively "Emperor", i.e. Atse Menelik).

All formal speech concerning the Emperor was in the plural, as was his own speech; Haile Selassie, for instance, referred to himself in the first-person plural at all times, even in casual conversation and when speaking in French (however this was not the case when he spoke in English, in which he was not fully fluent).[2]

Negus[edit]

Main article: Negus King Haile Selassie of the Solomonic dynasty. A Negus (Ge'ez: ንጉሥ nəgus, "king") was a hereditary ruler of one of Ethiopia's larger provinces, over whom collectively the monarch ruled, thus justifying his imperial title. The title of Negus was awarded at the discretion of the Emperor to those who ruled important provinces, although it was often used hereditarily during and after the Zemene Mesafint. The rulers of Begemder, Shewa, Gojjam, Wollo, all held the title of Negus at some point, as the "Negus of Shewa", "Negus of Gojjam", and so forth.

During and after the reign of Menelik II virtually all of the titles either lapsed into the Imperial crown or were dissolved. In 1914, after having been appointed "Negus of Zion" by his son Lij Iyasu (Iyasu V), Mikael of Wollo, in consideration of the hostile feelings this provoked in of much of the nobility in northern Ethiopia (particularly Le'ul Ras Seyoum Mengesha, whose family had resented being denied the title by Menelik), who were now technically made subordinate to him, instead elected to use the title of Negus of Wollo. Tafari Makonnen, who later became Emperor Haile Selassie, was bestowed the title of Negus in 1928; he would be the last person to bear the title.[3]

Despite this, European sources referred to the Ethiopian monarch as the Negus well into the 20th century, switching to Emperor only after the Second World War- around the same time the name Abyssinia fell out of use in favour of Ethiopia in the west.

Le'ul[edit] Le'ul (Ge'ez: ልዑል lə‘ul, "Prince") was a princely style used by sons and grandson of the Emperor. It conferred upon its holder the title of Imperial Highness. The style first came into use in 1916, following the enthronement of Empress.Zewditu

Abeto[edit] Abetohun (Ge'ez: አቤቶሁን abētōhun) or Abeto (Ge'ez: አቤቶ abētō) -- Prince. Title reserved for males of Imperial ancestry in the male line. Title fell into disuse by the late 19th century. Lij Iyasu attempted to revive the title as Abeto-hoy ("Great Prince"), and this form is still used by the current Iyasuist claimant Girma Yohannes Iyasu.

Ras[edit] Ras (Ge'ez: ራስ, translit. ras, lit. 'head', compare with Arabic Rais) -- One of the powerful non-imperial; historian Harold G. Marcus equates this to a duke. The combined title of Leul Ras was given to the heads of the cadet branches of the Imperial dynasty, such as the Princes of Gojjam, Tigray and the Selalle sub-branch of the last reigning Shewan Branch.

Bitwoded[edit] Bitwoded (Ge'ez: ቢትወደድ, translit. bitwädäd, lit. 'beloved') -- An office thought to have been created by Zara Yaqob who appointed two of these, one of the Left and one of the Right. These were later merged into one office, which became the supreme grade of Ras, "Ras Betwadad". Marcus equates the style to an earl.

Lij[edit] Lij (Ge'ez: ልጅ, translit. ləj, lit. 'child') -- Title issued at birth to sons of members of the Mesafint, the hereditary nobility. Men's military titles[edit]


Further information: Ethiopian military titles

Dejazmach (ደጃዝማች däjazmač, "Commander or General of the Gate") -- a military title meaning commander of the central body of a traditional Ethiopian armed force composed of a vanguard, main body, left and right wings and a rear body.[4] Marcus equates this to a count. The heirs of the "Leul Rases" were titled Leul Dejazmach to elevate them above the non-Imperial blood Dejazmaches.

Fit'awrari (ፊትአውራሪ fit’awrari, Commander of the Vanguard) -- a military title meaning commander of the vanguard of a traditional Ethiopian armed force. Marcus equates this to a baron.

Grazmach (ግራዝማች grazmač, Commander of the Left wing) -- a military title meaning commander of the left wing of a traditional Ethiopian armed force.[4]

Qenyazmach (ቀኛዝማች qəñazmač, Commander of the Right wing) -- a military title meaning commander of the right wing of a traditional Ethiopian armed force.[4]

Azmach (አዝማች azmač, Commander of the Rearguard) -- a military title meaning commander of the rearguard of a traditional Ethiopian armed force. This was usually a trustworthy counselor and the leader's chief minister.[4]

Balambaras (ባላምባራስ balambaras, Commander of an Amba or fortress) -- these could also be commanders of the guards, artillery or cavalry of a traditional Ethiopian armed force, basically a man entrusted with important commands.[4] Women's honorifics[edit]

Nigiste Negestatt - "Empress Regnant" (ንግሥተ ነገሥታት nígəstä nəgəstât) (in her own right) Literally "Queen of Kings," or "Queen of Queens," or "female ruler of an empire." Zewditu (reigned 1917–1930) was the only woman to be crowned in Ethiopia in her own right since ancient times. Rather than take the title Itege, which was reserved for empress consorts, Zewditu was given the feminized version of Nigusa Nigist to indicate that she reigned in her own right. She was accorded the dignity of Girmawit ("Imperial Majesty") and the title of Siyimta Igzi'abher (ሥይምተ እግዚአብሔር səyəmtä ’əgziabhēr, "Elect of God"). She was commonly referred to as Nigist "Queen". The 1955 Constitution of Ethiopia excluded women from the succession to the throne so this title was effectively abolished.

Itege (እቴጌ ’ətēgē) "empress consort". Empresses were generally crowned as consorts by the emperor at the Imperial Palace. However, Taytu Betul, consort of Menelik II, became the first Itege to be crowned by the Emperor at church rather than at the Palace. Her coronation took place on the second day of the emperor's coronation holiday. Menen Asfaw became the first Itege to be crowned by the archbishop on the same day and during the same ceremony as her husband, Haile Selassie. The Itege was entitled to the dignity of Girmawit ("Her/Your Imperial Majesty").

Le'elt (ልዕልት lə‘əlt) "Princess". Title came into use in 1916 upon the enthronement of Zewditu. Reserved at birth for daughters of the monarch and patrilineal granddaughters. Usually bestowed on the wives of "Leul Rases" as well as the monarch's granddaughters in the female line upon their marriages. The notable exception to the rule was Leult Yeshashework Yilma, Emperor Haile Selassie's niece by his elder brother, who received the title with the dignity of "Highness" from Zewditu upon the princess' marriage to Leul Ras Gugsa Araya Selassie in 1918, and then again from her uncle upon his coronation in 1930 with the enhanced dignity of "Imperial Highness".

Emebet Hoy (እመቤት ሆይ ’əmäbēt hōy, "Great Royal Lady") --Reserved for the wives of those bearing the title of Leul Dejazmach and other high ranking women of Royal blood.

Emebet (እመቤት, "Royal Lady" ’əmäbēt) --Reserved for the unmarried granddaughters of the monarch in the female line (they were generally granted the title of leult upon marriage), and to the daughters of the "Leul Rases".

Woyzero (ወይዘሮ wäyzärō, Dame) -- Originally high noble title that over time came to be the general accepted form of address for married women in general (Mrs.). It was still awarded by the Emperor on rare occasions in the 20th century to non-royal women, and sometimes with the higher grade of Woizero Hoy (Great Dame).

Woyzerit (ወይዘሪት wäyzärit, Lady) -- Originally high ranking noble title for unmarried women, now the general accepted form of address for unmarried women in general (Miss). It was sometimes awarded with the added distinction of Woizerit Hoy (Great Lady), but only to widows. Important regional offices[edit]

Bahr negus (ባህር ንጉሥ bahər nəgus, "ruler of the Seas") -- King of the territories north of the Mareb River, and as a result the most powerful office in medieval Ethiopia after the Emperor himself. As a result of the revolts of the Bahr negus Yeshaq and the self-determination of Medri Bahri in modern-day Eritrea in the later 16th century, this office lost much of its power. Although men are mentioned as holding this office into the early 18th century, they were of little consequence.[citation needed]

Meridazmach (መርዕድ አዝማች märəd ’azmač, "Fearsome Commander" or "supreme general") -- This title is related to "Dejazmach" or "Kenyazmach" above. Beginning in the 18th century, this came to denote the ruler of Shewa until Sahle Selassie dropped it in favor of the title of Negus. Later revived in 1930 in Wollo for Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen.

Mesfin Harar (መስፍነ ሐረር mäsfinä ḥarar) --Duke of Harar. Hereditary title created in 1930 for Emperor Haile Selassie's second son, Prince Makonnen. (The wife of the Mesfin was properly titled Sefanit, but was more commonly referred to as the Mesfinit). Upon the death of the Prince, his son Prince Wossen Seged was elevated as Mesfin Harar and would currently be second in line in the line of succession if Ethiopia were still a monarchy after Prince Zera Yacob.

Nebura ed (ንቡረ እድ nəburä ’əd, one put in office through the laying of hands") -- civil governor of Axum reserved for the clergy. Also called Liqat Aksum. Because of the historical and symbolic importance of this city, the rules of precedence promulgated in 1689 ranked the Nebura ed ahead of all of the provincial governors. Indeed, when the title was granted with Ras Warq (the right to wear a coronet), it was higher than even the title of Ras. Although a civil title granted by the Emperor, it was usually bestowed on a clergyman due to Axum's status as the holiest site of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church within the country.[5] The title of Nebure ed was also granted to the administrator of the Church of St. Mary at Addis Alem, founded by Menelik II west of Addis Ababa. However the Nebura ed of Addis Alem was much further down the hierarchy than the Nebura ed of Axum, and was not accorded the Ras Warq.

Tigray Mekonnen (ትግራይ መኮንን təgray mäkōnən) -- governor of the province of Tigray. Under the rule of Emperor Yohannes IV in the late 19th century, the Tigray Mekonnen briefly became responsible for the territories once controlled by the Bahrnegus, and became the most powerful governor of Eritrea. Wagshum (ዋግሹም wagšum) -- governor (or shum) of the province of Wag. The Wagshum was a hereditary title, and these rulers traced their ancestry back to the imperial family of the Zagwe dynasty.

Shum Agame -- Governor of Agame province of Tigray, and hereditary in the family of Dejazmach Sabagadis Woldu, a major figure of the Zemene Mesafint (Era of the Princes) period. Ras Sebhat Aregawi, a longtime rival of the family of Emperor Yohannes IV was one of the more famous of the Shum Agame. Shum Tembien (ሹም ታምብየን šum tambyän) -- Governor of Tembien district of Tigray. Emperor Yohannes IV was the son of Shum Mercha of Tembien. Jantirar - Title reserved for the males of the family who ruled over the mountain fortress of Ambassel in Wollo (now Debub Wollo Zone). The title of Jantirar is among the oldest in the Ethiopian Empire. Empress Menen, consort of Emperor Haile Selassie, was the daughter of Jantirar Asfaw. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.22.61.38 (talk) 02:47, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

This conversation belongs on the article's talk page, not here. Your continous edits from various IP addresses has been nothing but disruptive. Wikipedia is not a source, so we do not base edits off of information in other articles, but from independent reliable sources. The sources used in the article back my edits. Makonnen also styles herself as H.I.H. Princess Ariana Austin Makonnen. Furthermore, the monarchy of Ethiopia was deposed and the last emperor is dead, so he is unable to "bestow" the title of princess. Is it up to the Crown Council now? If you can find a source that counters this information, then we can add it in. But for now, the sources contradict your edits. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 01:45, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

This is my first time trying to use the "talk" feature. I didn't know that there was a difference between the article's talk page and this talk page. My edits have been few and far between, but I did inform others that references to valid outside sources and inside sources are being undone and wikipedia is ascribing rank in a way that is disrespectful to others. There are many women who are BY BLOOD unable to use the title Princess because they did not come of age before the monarchy was deposed. In the absence of an emperor there are no new princesses. None of the wives of the men in the royal family have been bestowed the title of "Princess". There are instances that a woman may be referred to as "princess" as a courtesy, but this is in no way an official title. There are many people trying to dispel miunderstandings like this. The link that you cited is from a former employer who was provided the information from an outside source that likely got it from Wikipedia, which is the only place where she is referred to as H.I.H Princess Makonnen. The website that you listed as a reference will be corrected after the holidays, as the person responsible for such edits is off. We were assured that it would be corrected posthaste with the sincerest apologies for the confusion. Independent reliable sources are available that define the terms. http://www.ethiohistory.com/aristocratic-and-court-titles-in-ethiopian-history and http://enacademic.com/dic.nsf/enwiki/1222077#Women.27s_honorifics for example expressly define the term princess in the Ethiopian context as a bestowed title that is not passed automatically to people within the royal family, let alone those outside of the bloodline by marriage. Though the title has been said to be used casually by people referring to the spouse of a prince of the blood, the spouse is not actually a princess unless the title is granted to her. Is it up to the Crown Council now that the council is in exile and the monarch has been killed? No, the Crown Council will not nor has it taken on the role of bestowing monarchic titles onto people. Can you imagine the political implications if they were to do so? The sources are here and many others are available that identify what an Ethiopian princess is. Your application of the title is outside of the valid cited material here. Think of it this way. This is not the first man in the royal family to be married, yet none of the other women are titled as "HIH" nor "princess". Mrs. Makonnen is a lovely lady, but she is no greater than the other wives in the royal family. She is only different because she is the first black American to marry into the family and so the American media paid attention to her. This doesn't give her the right to titles that other women who have supported the family as wives and mothers decades before her do not have. Passing reference to someone as a "princess" as a courtesy for the sake of her husband is not the same as claiming that this is her rank/title. Please stop referring to her as having the official title of Princess until a monarchy is reinstated and it can be bestowed by the appropriate party. This is the best way to ensure accuracy and respect for those who are in the family and have more of a right to call themselves a princess, but do not out of respect for the title and know that they cannot just assume titles because the West sees it as inherently theirs for the taking. I hope that you see my point. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 162.223.5.124 (talk) 04:31, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Greek Royalty[edit]

In reading the policies of Wikipedia, I think one of the underlying concepts is that the entries should contain fact and not fiction. The simple fact is that Greece has no royalty. Therefore, even having a category called Greek Royalty is fictive. The category could accurately be called former Greek Royalty and any entries there would then be factual as to the historical figures who occupied positions of royalty during the time that Greece had royalty.

I was, therefore, surprised to find entries giving titles to people such as “crown prince” or “crown princess” of Greece. This implies, by the definition of crown prince, that this person would be next to acsend to the throne. However, there is no throne to acsend to in Greece. While Pavlos was crown prince when he was born, he is no longer the crown prince because there is no longer a kingdom where he will ascend to the throne. I see the term “crown prince“ as a job description so I would be OK with his Wikipedia entry being titled former crown prince of Greece. Just as his wife is certainly not the crown princess of Greece. She was not even born into this title. She is simply married to the former crown prince of Greece. And their children could be accurately described as the sons or daughters of the former crown prince of Greece or, alternately, grandsons and granddaughters of the former king of Greece.

I would not expect Wikipedia entries to give people inaccurate titles. If someone was the CEO of IBM 30 years ago, his Wikipedia entry would certainly indicate he was a former CEO. This is no different.

To call people prince or princess also implies some sort of accreditation by the country their title is associated to. There is certainly no such accreditation forthcoming from the country of Greece. If the former crown prince wishes to use his Danish Royal lineage, where royalty still exist, that would be accurate. But the Greek titles are not. People can call themselves whatever they want but their entries in Wikipedia should reflect who they actually are. Willthacheerleader18 changed my edits to the entries stating that they did not conform to the policies of Wikipedia. I disagree. He said the titles are included as a courtesy. Encyclopedias are not designed to be courteous. They should be accurate. They should not propagate myths. And, just because “the press” uses the royal titles, as Willthacheerleader18 pointed out, is no good reason for Wikipedia to do so. Any press that covers these people is, frankly speaking, probably not representative of the highest level of journalism. He also gave examples of other people who use titles that are meaningless. I think his example is a good one but for the opposite reason of what he intended. All those fictive titles should be changed. If the people’s passports don’t say “Crown Prince of Greece” or “Christoph Prince of Schleswig Holstein” their Wikipedia entries should not either. To be a member of a defunct royal house is to be a member of nothing. The historical fact that these people’s relatives were royalty is important to note but for Wikipedia to continue to propagate titles generations after they lost their legal standing and meaning is inconsistent with the stated pillars of the organization. Since Wikipedia is the first place people tend to go these days for facts, they should get them. The use of “former” and “descendant of” are fine and accurate descriptions. This egalitarian organization should not be used as a PR tool for descendants of ousted royals to perpetuate mythical titles.

I have an educated opinion and Willthacheerleader18 does too. But I don’t agree that his is actually more valid than mine. I find it insulting to have my edits changed without a discussion. His opinion was interesting but in no way definitive.

 Ajecon (talk) 16:08, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
There is a category for Greek royalty just like there is for French, German, Russian, etc. even though these kingdoms and empires are also no more. As I stated on your talk page, Pavlos was crown prince at birth. No one will succeed him in that title, he was born a crown prince while the monarchy was still in power. If someone were a CEO of IBM, the article would refer to them as a businessman who served as CEO from a specific date to another specific date. I did not change your edits, another user did. I simply thought I should explain WHY they were changed, as that user did not reach out to you. You do realize the argument you are making against me (to a third party?) is on my talk page, right? -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 17:27, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

The next time you do it will be locked to editing. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JD143726 (talkcontribs) 17:46, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Knock[edit]

I explained my reasons on the Knock Talk page. Banal sociological analysis that can be applied to ANY apparition should not dominate this page. I have also included a link by a prominent scholar on the eschatological significance of the apparitions for Catholics. Please respect this. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by JD143726 (talkcontribs) 17:54, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

April 2019[edit]

First off "singular 'they' pronouns" is not part of proper English in my view and clearly as the Wikipedia page for the 'singular they' also states that "It has been commonly employed in everyday English ever since then, though it has become the target of criticism since the late-19th century." Which seems to suggest I am not the only one, perhaps if you had decided to go to "English 101" as you so eloquently put it. Then you would've known that too. Also, I would like to add that the character in the show is not non-binary and in fact has transitioned into a male character and soooo maybe change that... Unless you think it is vandalism? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Swobniarsodot (talkcontribs) 18:51, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

"in my view", exactly. Your view. It is part of proper English. It does not matter what your opinion on the matter is. More importantly, you violated Wikipedia policy. The article is about the actor themself, not the character, who has not transitioned into male but identifies as non-binary and uses singular they pronouns (not female pronouns, as you've insinuated), as the sources suggest. The information you added was not only incorrect, it was unsourced. You have already been warned by another editor for your edits, which appear to be vandalism, and you will be reported if you do so again. Wikipedia articles are not for you to express your opinion. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 18:56, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

"Watson plays the role of gender non-binary character Susie Theo Putnam" - these are your own words not mine. Which clearly says that the character NOT the actor is non-binary and he has transition from female to male... Swobniarsodot (talk) 11:59, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

My words? Those are the words in the article based off of the information in the provided sources. Click the links. If the character has transitioned, we need a source to back that claim. Wikipedia information has to be sourced. I am talking about the fact that you changed the pronouns of the actor themself, which were incorrect. You violated policy and were warned. Don't do it again. End of discussion.-- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 12:55, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

actually i changed that too.. Its pretty clear even in season one... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Swobniarsodot (talkcontribs) 15:36, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Wuna of Wessex[edit]

Please don't cite those awful websites. They are prima facie unreliable. Note how they don't even cite sources. There are a few sources on Wuna, and this one is from a very decent press. I happen to know a thing or two about Boniface, and there is no "Christian tradition" that has her as his sister. There may be a few late medieval rumors somewhere, but if that is so, those need to be cited properly, and not as "tradition", rather as legend. Thank you. Drmies (talk) 01:45, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Charlotte of Monaco (1719 – 1790) moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Charlotte of Monaco (1719 – 1790), does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Speedy deletion nomination of Caroline Daur[edit]

Hello Willthacheerleader18,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Caroline Daur for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly indicate why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks!

Message delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

Hello TomCat4680, I replied on your talk page, as you suggested, but it appears you deleted it. I cannot contest the deletion for the article because it was deleted in under two minutes of having been nominated by you. Is it possible to take this to AFD instead? -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 15:45, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
I didn't delete it, I only nominated it for deletion. User:Anthony Bradbury did the deletion. TomCat4680 (talk) 15:52, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
@TomCat4680, You deleted my post on your talk page, not the article. I could not respond to you on the article's talk page, as it was deleted. The article was deleted at 15:26 by Anthony Bradbury. You nominated it at 15:25. That didn't give me time to contest the speedy deletion. -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 15:55, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
If you still think the person is notable enough for an article, go ahead and re-add it. I'll leave it alone, but someone else might re-nominate it for deletion. TomCat4680 (talk) 16:09, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
@TomCat4680 Thank you. Is there a way I can access a version of the article prior to deletion? -- Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 16:10, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
No it's gone. Just re-build it from scratch. TomCat4680 (talk) 16:30, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Or you could take your case to WP:DRV. ミラP 02:34, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Nadja Malacrida[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 12 October 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Nadja Malacrida, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Nadja Malacrida said in a Vim advertisement that it was "no use having new ideas of decoration if you have old ideas of dirt"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Nadja Malacrida. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Nadja Malacrida), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

2019 US Banknote Contest[edit]

Commons WikiProject Numismatics concept logo (2017).png US Banknote Contest Flag of the United States.svg
November-December 2019

There are an estimated 30,000 different varieties of United States banknotes, yet only a fraction of these are represented on Wikimedia Commons in the form of 2D scans. Additionally, Colonial America, the Confederate States, the Republic of Texas, multiple states and territories, communities, and private companies have issued banknotes that are in the public domain today but are absent from Commons.

In the months of November and December, WikiProject Numismatics will be running a cross-wiki upload-a-thon, the 2019 US Banknote Contest. The goal of the contest is to increase the number of US banknote images available to content creators on all Wikimedia projects. Participants will claim points for uploading and importing 2D scans of US banknotes, and at the end of the contest all will receive awards. Whether you want to claim the Gold Wiki or you just want to have fun, all are invited to participate.


If you do not want to receive invitations to future US Banknote Contests, follow the instructions here
