Semi-protected edit request on 8 May 2015
|This edit request has been answered. Set the
The Three-Fifths Compromise article contains incorrect and highly POV lines in the opening paragraph, from a poor source, that's contradicted in the rest of the article. I made NPOV edits sourced from a Pulitzer Prize winner, but they were reverted. The talk page is covered with complaints about POV, and edits attempting to correct or clarify keep getting reverted. Example - "slave-owners" didn't get 30% more seats in Congress - southern states did (these things are different). The 30% figure was not even in the citation given, nor was the baseline number clear (it was the Congress of the Confederation under the Articles of the Confederation - in the citation I gave). Southern states 'dominating the government' is highly controversial, especially since they continuously had a minority of seats in Congress (and decreased yearly). All of this is in the source given, and on other Wikipedia pages. Original citation is an obscure professor from Northeastern Illiois University.
- If discussion is stalled on the article's talk page try dispute resolution or post on Wikipedia:Neutral point of view/Noticeboard (not this talk page). --NeilN talk to me 01:52, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Request for assistance with NPOV editing
I posted a request for help with NPOV editing at Talk:Russ_Baker#NPOV_Help_Needed. An investigative reporter (the subject) inherently raises contentious issues and crosses conscious or unconscious biases. I am standing aside from incipient edit-warring. Bn (talk) 16:05, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Is the archive bot still working on the Noticeboard?
Hi, just wondering if the bot is still working on auto-archiving "old" notices? For example,
- RfC on whether calling an event "murder" presumes the perpetrator is a "murderer"? was last edited on July 17th (if my math is right, that is about 2 months 15 days according to this calculator);
Is the “etymology” section of the article on Canada in line with NPOV policy? was last edited on September 6th (16 days according to this calculator); Point of View Issue was last edited on September 6th (gonna use finger math here, *counts fingers and toes*) about 16 days ago; National Air Traffic Controllers Association is 15 days old based on an edit on September 7th; RfC on Palestine is 14 days old based on an edit on September 8th (borderline I suppose but should be archived soon based on date).
All dates and calculations are based on the premise of being September 22nd and are hopefully correct at the time of writing, Dr Crazy 102 (talk) 00:32, 22 September 2015 (UTC); strikethrough archived sections, 06:12, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
- Guess, the coding was weird. Changed both noticeboard and talk page to allow bot to archive at least one thread instead of requiring three old threads. Sorry, Dr Crazy 102 (talk) 03:27, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
- The RfC post for murder implying accused of being murderer, is still hanging around. Does anyone know why it isn't being archived? Dr Crazy 102 (talk) 06:12, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
