WP:BLP is policy[edit]

This and this edit by you are a no unless you can provide a WP:Reliable source pointing to Crocker identifying as genderqueer. He identifies as transgender. In this case, it matters not that genderqueer is an aspect of the broader transgender topic. What matters is abiding by WP:BLP. We should not be placing people in genderqueer categories because we personally think they fit in them; they have to be explicitly self-identified as genderqueer for that to happen. See this discussion from Talk:List of people with non-binary gender identities for a similar matter. Also read WP:BLPCAT. Flyer22 (talk) 16:59, 1 October 2015 (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)

I think, as long as we maintain their names on the article for the IDB, it is okay to remove it from their individual articles.--Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 01:05, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Lewisfield Plantation[edit]

I looked at your reference, http://wbtw.com/2014/02/04/get-ready-for-another-sc-reality-show-southern-charm/. The reference doesn't mention Katherine Dennis, Rembert Dennis, or Lewisfield Plantation. Wrong reference? Generic1139 (talk) 05:14, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Fixed reference, thanks! --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 01:04, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Bare references[edit]

Hi. You have been around Wikipedia long enough so that you should be filling out your references by now, rather than simply sticking in a url and expecting other editors to clean up the references for you. A reference should state the author name (last name first), the title of the article or book, the page number and/or url, the the name of the publisher, the date of publication and, if it was published some time ago, also the access date. For example, instead of simply sticking this ref: http://www.ripopmusic.org/musical-artists/composers/george-m-cohan/ in George M. Cohan, you could format it as follows:

<ref>Heroux, Gerard H. [http://www.ripopmusic.org/musical-artists/composers/george-m-cohan "George M. Cohan, 2013 Inductee: The Rhody Colossus"], Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame Historical Archive, 2013, accessed February 16, 2016</ref>

I have done so in the article, so you can see how footnote 3 looks now. See WP:CITE for more information. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 10:07, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the message. Feel free to ask me, if you want help to figure out how to format references. I'm happy to review some of your early attempts at formatting and help you tweak them. You will see that different editors use different styles, but all refs should contain the same basic elements: author name (last name first), the title of the article or book, the page number and/or url, the the name of the publisher, the date of publication and, if it was published some time ago, also the access date. Happy editing! -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:11, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Prince Philip[edit]

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)

Bernie Sanders[edit]

If you look at the archives of Talk:Bernie Sanders, you'll find this has been discussed ad nauseum. Per policies at WP:BLP, an "ethnicity" line does not belong in the infobox. Tarl.Neustaedter (talk) 13:46, 3 April 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)

Hornets[edit]

Did you see the link I provided? The ABC website story is a fake. Provide other reliable sources. —DangerousJXD (talk) 00:47, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Make further comments here rather than reverting over and over. See WP:BRD. —DangerousJXD (talk) 00:59, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I looked through it and see now that that report was false. My apologies and thanks for correcting that. I will go back and change the information. --Willthacheerleader18 (talk) 01:02, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
It's all good. —DangerousJXD (talk) 01:05, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Re: Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance[edit]

Thank you for starting this article. I hope you don't mind, but I added the article to Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride 2016/Results, which tracks new and improved LGBT-related content as part of an ongoing Wiki Loves Pride campaign. If you create or improve other LGBT articles between now and the end of June, feel free to update this page with your contributions. Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:20, 5 June 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!
