Afd[edit]

Hi, did you mean to delete Matthew 6 sans any discussion? The Afd was on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ostensible not Matthew 6. Ostensible still exists. Was that a typo? History2007 (talk) 05:54, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

My mistake. Thanks for rubbing my nose in it. It should be fixed now.
I must have navigated to Ostensible, been redirected to Matthew 6 without noticing that, and deleted the page. Dumb. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 06:23, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
No problem. I did not mean to sound harsh on it, sorry. History2007 (talk) 08:41, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
Didn't mean to imply that. I'm genuinely grateful. Cheers. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 02:27, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

SuggestBot and {{nobots}}[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for signing up to get suggestions from SuggestBot. I noticed that it refused to post here because you had the {{nobots}} template up. I took the liberty to edit it and whitelist SuggestBot, and it should therefore stop by later today with some suggestions for you. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 19:15, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the assist. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:18, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Boracay[edit]

Hi Wtmitchell,

Greetings!

Hi Editors,

There is a bit of a problem in one of the entries about the history of the island of Boracay.

The old folks Sofia and Lamberto did develop the island through cultivation but as far as the members of the family are concerned including those settlers close to them, they did not "clear" the island. The source is still the same primary source which is the article itself published in The Sunday Times Magazine in 1987.

The "clearing" happened decades after, particularly in the late 1980s after electricity reached the island and some of the heirs of the islanders and the settlers began selling their lots to outsiders.

Since I was the one who contributed some of the family journals and accounts to Wikipedia I was told to rectify this error.

Thank you.

Aicykiss (talk) 08:42, 31 January 2012 (UTC) Aicykiss

From the info above, I'm not sure what to do, I'm in Romblon at the moment and traveling back to Boracay tomorrow. When my travel situation stabilizes, I'll take a look at this. Cheers. 203.84.185.242 (talk) 11:16, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I've done some rewriting in the History section and added some cites. I'm not really happy with it as it stands now, but don't have time to spend on it right now. Other editors will probably improve on these changes.

Hugo Chavez[edit]

Hugo Chavez isn't a dictator. When we look at the sources, we can clearly see their propaganda meanings. I will not change status of Hugo Chavez,you're talking about here probably relates to the initial paragraph of [[WP:V but i can find sources that claims dictatorship of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Those are all propagandas. Dictatorship doesn't mean "enemies of The United States." -- Avatar9n (talk) 20:57, 12-02-2012 (UTC)

Hmmm... I recall looking at something related to this during a huggle session, but I don't recall the details and don't see mention of it in my contributions or in the edit history of the Chavez article. I'm guessing that my side of whatever sparked this probably relates to WP:VNT and WP:DUE. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 22:47, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Wtmitchell,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the community HERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your name HERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar (talk) 07:26, 12 February 2012 (UTC) Young June Sah --Yjune.sah (talk) 22:31, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Rude anon.[edit]

Do you have any suggestions for how to deal with this user? He is clearly someone with whom I have tangled before, judging by his comments, though I have no particular recollection of him.

Sure you meant this?[edit]

Hi Bill. According to this log you got into bit of a race condition with another admin and drastically reduced the block length for an IP. Could it be an accident? Favonian (talk) 21:57, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I changed the block time back to one year. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 22:02, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Lightening Rod page[edit]

Remove the section "Analysis & Evaluations" on the Lightning Rod page, as you know it is completely biased and completely incoherent. UL isn't even "effing" unbiased as it collected for profit money to "certify" LPS that it also sets the standards for.

Do not threaten me either, but claiming I am "vandalizing" the the page or being "unconstructive" simply because I am calling out the obvious bias of this section of the article and attempting to describe in simple facts the differences between the two approaches to providing LPS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.96.5.90 (talkcontribs) 05:59, February 22, 2012‎

This apparently relates to this reversion which I made during a WP:Huggle session, I think. I had reverted because of section blanking too hastily -- before seeing that an edit summary with an explanation had been provided. here, I attempted to undo that huggle edit from within huggle a few seconds later. I presumed that huggle had done the undo, and continued on looking at other articles. Looking at the diffs now, I see that huggle said that my edit had been undone without actually undoing it. The problem seems to have been fixed by other editors, so I'm not taking any further action on it.
I looked at User talk:70.96.5.90, intending to remove relevant warnings and saw two warnings there from me and one later warning from another editor. I looked at the diff for that later warned-about edit, and I agree that the warned-about edit was improper. I've left the talk page unedited.

Talk:Mount Kitanglad[edit]

You may be interested in my recent posts at Talk:Mount Kitanglad. They are more or less in response to a concern you had about a year ago with the article. Also, there are some related posts at Talk:Mount Dulang-dulang. I haven't nailed down the problem yet. If you have any more information that would clear this up, that would be great. Thank you.--Racerx11 (talk) 20:27, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for that. I have responded on the article talk page. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:34, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I appreciate the response and I will keep your suggestions in mind. Please keep in mind for my sake that I have spent several hours delving extremely deep into this issue. I must have read through over a dozen external articles alone in the process. It is entirely possible that I have not quite reeled myself back up and out of that mindset enough to engage in a coherant conversation on the topic. If my reply at the talk page seems bazaar or disjointed or anything like that, then this is probably the reason and I apologize for that. Particularly since I had asked you to talk to me about it.--Racerx11 (talk) 03:35, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
I know the feeling. More comment on the article talk page. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 07:20, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Please take a moment to review my proposed changes at Talk:Mount Kitanglad and feel free to comment or suggest improvements. Thank you.--Racerx11 (talk) 02:47, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your suggested version, I will probably use a variation or our two later tonight when I go live with the edits, then we can resume normal editing practices. I have one question: Would you mind if I refactor your latest comment at Talk:Mount Kitanglad by placing it into the section 'Proposed changes to this article', just for ease of editing and readability in any future discussions?--Racerx11 (talk) 21:33, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
Just to inform you that I have made the live edits at the two articles Mount Kitanglad (actually used your draft which was an improvement on mine) and also at Mount Dulang-dulang (may need a once over or a re-wording in the note as I wrote it out rather quickly). Feel free to make any further edits. You have been extremely helpful in the discussions over the past several days, far more so than I would have expected from any editor on a matter such as this. Your input, invaluable!--Racerx11 (talk) 03:57, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Chernobyl[edit]

[1] What failed verification? I searched the PDF (nb:old link is now working, while new link is 401) and although the PDF does not have the same table, I was able to confirm some of the measurements with text search (try: "room 712", "Gidroelektromontazh"). --hydrox (talk) 23:17, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't recall the specifics of the tag placement, but I've just rechecked. The http://dodreports.com/pdf/ada335076.pdf web page which I tagged {{fv}} is now a {{Registration required}} page for me. The URL cited has been changed to http://www.dtic.mil/cgi-bin/GetTRDoc?AD=ADA335076&Location=U2&doc=GetTRDoc.pdf since I placed the tag. That page loads very slowly for me and I haven't tried to verify the info in the table there. Based on your info that some of the info in the table can be verified there, I've removed the tag.
FYI, neither http://dodreports.com/pdf/ada335076.pdf nor http://dodreports.com/ ever complete loading for me. I get a popup registration form on both those URLs, but neither web page ever completes loading. I'm located in the Philippines and have noticed that it is not uncommon for me to be unable to access some US Govt web pages. I'm guessing that these US Govt web pages have access from outside the US blocked, either generally or selectively. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 04:43, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
I also get 401 authorization required (a standard HTTP error message) on http://dodreports.com/ . This opens a popup window asking user to provide credentials in most browsers. I am accessing from Finland. I think it might be just a server misconfiguration error. Mind you I changed the URL of the document to http://handle.dtic.mil/100.2/ADA335076 . --hydrox (talk) 16:32, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

It gives a miserable impression to the outside-Filipino readership (which Wikipedia certainly has). Sincerely yours, 49.145.85.9 (talk) 08:35, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Just give you an impression:

"On March 14, 2011, Aquino signed Executive Order No. 29, authorizing the Civil Aeronautics Board and the Philippine Air Panels to "pursue more aggressively" the International Civil Aviation Liberalization Policy.

On March 14, 2011, Aquino also signed Executive Order No. 30, transferring the Land Registration Authority (LRA) from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

On July 25, 2011, at the Batasang Pambansa, in Quezon City, Aquino delivered his second State of the Nation Address (SONA).

On August 4, 2011, Aquino left the country unannounced to hold unprecedented talks with Murad Ebrahim, chair of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), in Tokyo, Japan.[115]"

That is not really nice to read. And it is unique in Wikipedia. I wouldn't be proud of that distinction. 49.145.85.9 (talk) 08:37, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes, see the lead sentence of WP:EL: "Wikipedia articles may include links to web pages outside Wikipedia (external links), but they should not normally be used in the body of an article. ...". Those aren't links added by me, of course; it takes quite a while for new editors to discover, read, and start following Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines; some never do. Perhaps I'll take a look at doing some cleanup for the Benigno Aquino III article, though. For a real mess, look at Wikipedia talk:Tambayan Philippines#Lots of articles with outdated info. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 21:22, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
"but they should not normally be used in the body of an article". It should not be normally used in the body of the article at it is clearly stated in the policy. That is the crux. That is what some users here don't (want to) understand. Perhaps those external links can be changed to reference notes. But anyway, at least we agree on one point that that article should be really cleaned up especially when it comes to the Philippine president. 49.145.85.9 (talk) 03:47, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
WP:SOFIXIT. I understand and agree with the guideline and I didn't put the inline links there. I would fix it (and still might if I have the time and the innclination to spend it on that), but I have other things to do. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 07:02, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your attention to the Philippines–United States relations article. Please see wp:Tea. 108.195.138.38 (talk) 06:03, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

AFAICT, this was in reaction to this edit. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 06:14, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
If you are willing to take responsibility for verifying the sources, it's a good edit. The anon frequently misquotes sources. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 07:36, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
The cited source looks good to me, as does the alternative source mentioned in the hidden comment. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 08:32, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

PIA Scarborough[edit]

The PIA source was published on 26 April. Our 25 April edition. It's a direct copy paste. CMD (talk) 11:43, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

WP:RS says, "Questionable sources are those with a poor reputation for checking the facts, or with no editorial oversight." Are you asserting that the Philippine Information Agency (an official organ of the RP government) has a poor reputation for checking the facts, or has no editorial oversight?
The PIA article to which you object does appear to contain some info copied from Wikipedia. That information seems to have been inserted in the WP article, then without support, in this 17 April edit. It occurs to me that the PIA may have picked that information up from WP for their 26 April article and fact-checked it prior to publication. The information in which the PIA article is cited in support is, as I understand it, "To the east, the 5,000 - 6,000 meter deep Manila Trench separates the shoal from Philippine Archipelago." I looked at the Manila Trench article, and see that it says, "The Manila Trench is an oceanic trench in the South China Sea, located west of the islands of Luzon and Mindoro in the Philippines. The trench reaches a depth of about 5,400 metres (17,700 ft)", citing this source in support. That source cited there says, "The depth of Manila Trench is around 4.8–4.9 km and reaches the deepest point of 5.4 km." That cited source also contains maps which would support an assertion that that the Manila Trench is located between Scarborough Shoal and the Philippine Archipelago. Personally, I would consider the PIA source as reliable on this topic, but the source cited in the Manila Trench article also appears reliable and also appears to support the asserted information. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 21:58, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
I have no idea what's up with the Philippine Information Agency, but this specific incident isn't just taking information, someone clearly went ctrl+c ctrl+v, taking from wikipedia for that page. It's remarkably blatant. The PIA article was used to source the entire geography section (see this edition) prior to a new source splitting it. It was due to the insertion of this new source that I double checked the PIA source. Obviously it'd be great for other sources to be used, but there's no way we could consider using a source that not only directly copied two entire sections from an article (Geography + Activities in the surrounding area), but also did that while removing two citation needed tags. CMD (talk) 22:27, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
PIA has a feedback/complaint link on their home page. I sent them a personal complaint about apparent blatant plagiarism. I'll post an update here about feedback received. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 08:46, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Timeline of Philippine history[edit]

Hi,

Sorry, I reverted all of you edits to this article as part of reverting an apparent vandal who edited before you. Can't revert just his edits. Would you mind restoring yours? — kwami (talk) 06:52, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Done. I've unreverted some other stuff as well. Please discuss on the article talk page if needful. Cheers. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 11:27, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Coverture[edit]

Unfortunately, the non-Dickens uses were completely and utterly irrelevant to the topic of Coverture. In any case, Dickens seems to have greatly popularized the expression... AnonMoos (talk) 01:55, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't argue with that. I see that your edit changed the prior claim of "originates" to "was popularized by", so that's OK. Your edit, however, removed the supporting cite I had supplied. Per WP:V, all quotations require citation of a supporting source. I've added the supporting cite back in, mentioning only the pages which refer to Dickens. Cheers. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 02:15, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Zamboanga Peninsula regional center issue[edit]

Hi there! In my most recent edit in the Philippines article, I referred to a new section that I made in Zamboanga Peninsula, specifically on the issue of its regional center. I looked around for sources and references in order to clarify the issue.

While you cited that the RDC chose Zamboanga City as the new RC in March 2011, this is merely an endorsement and is not immediately executory and is pending unless declared by the President through an Executive Order. My most recent source (August 15, 2011) tells that the National Economic and Development Authority does not consider Zamboanga City as the RC but rather the commercial and industrial center.

In my edit summary here, I stated that Legally, Pagadian is still RC as per EO 429 (upheld in MC75 s. 2004). MC11 s. 2010 only stopped the transfer of reg. offices. RDC endorsement still pending. NEDA says ZamboCity not the RC to which I referred to in this edit summary to take a look at the new section I made, citing the space constraints in the ES field should I need to elaborate further.

In this case, Pagadian City still retains its status as RC as of today. Xeltran (talk) 08:03, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, for the cited sources, and for the clarifying addition to the article (especially the working links to the sources; just the mention of EO429 would have confused me, as I would have confused that with EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 429, May 23, 2005). Cheers, Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 22:43, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
No problem! Happy editing! :) Xeltran (talk) 07:38, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

PAF & KAI T-50[edit]

I see that you've re-removed the material. Based on the info you've pointed out above (which I did miss noticing when I glanced at the source while running through my watchlist), I won't contest that. Note, though, that WP:SYN relates specifically to combining material from multiple sources to reach or imply a conclusion not explicitly stated by any of the sources. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:54, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Apologies if I had implied that you had made that mistake but on the contrary, a couple of IP & registered editors had committed that cardinal sin (on KAI T-50) before moving on to PAF, where you reverted me. Their violation of WP:SYN there was very apparent. Hope this clear things up. Best and cheers. --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 01:57, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

[Focus on the Family][edit]

You're going to need to clearly explain your objection to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focus_on_the_Family?diff=503231236. I restored a few words while adding a citation to support them. Why did you revert this? 24.45.42.125 (talk) 05:43, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

I've taken a second look, at my revert and your unrevert, and I see your point. This was an error on my part during a WP:Huggle session, for which I apologize. I'll let your unrevert stand, but will opine that the placement of that material early in the lead paragraph gives it undue weight. I'm not a regular editor of the Focus on the Family article, though, and I think that is best sorted out by consensus of editors with a stronger interest than I in that article's topic. For future reference, please take a look at WP:BRD; an unrevert often leads to an edit war. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 06:36, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm not opposed to moving some of the details a bit lower in the article, but like you, I'd rather let the more regular editors tackle it. I just saw that it was deleted for lack of citations, so I provided the citation. 24.45.42.125 (talk) 07:03, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Regarding deleted Miguel A. Sanchez-Rey content[edit]

To Wtmitchell,

I strongly believe that the content, Miguel A. Sanchez-Rey was deleted erroneously. Content contained citations and links to other sites. Please reconsider as I believe that one of the editors was very ill and must have mistakenly deleted the article. I apologize for any discrepancy or problem it might have caused.

Thank you, Isaacov102

Isaacov102 (talk) 19:11, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

I have restored the deleted article and reverted it to the version prior to your blanking of its page. Please note that it still contains a {{prod}} hatnote proposing its deletion due to lack of cited supporting sources. Perhaps this might be useful in identifying needed sources. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 21:56, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

To Wtmichell,

Can you please restore the document again since it's been deleted by Phantomsteve and I only got your message today. I will proceed to make changes with the altered manuscript. Thank you and I apologize...Isaacov102

I have restored the article content as of 12:40, July 2, 2012 to User Isaacov102/sandbox. Note that the stated reason for the most recent deletion was "concern was: unsourced BLP". I suggest that you cite supporting sources if you plan to reintroduce this as a mainspace article. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 18:58, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
