Source assessment table

Hi, next time give Template:source assess table a try. It's clear, objective and to the point, and avoids the trouble of having to create walls of text in the nomination or throughout the page. It also makes it harder for someone funny to just come in and make a poor but superficially plausible argument without looking the sources. Best regards, don't be discouraged by setbacks, and keep up your good work, Avilich (talk) 03:10, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Thanks Avilich, will use that next time. regards Mztourist (talk) 04:30, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Battle of Ban Me Thuot

The wrong internal link for Quang Duc was added on December 12, 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Battle_of_Ban_Me_Thuot&diff=815007110&oldid=815006030 .

I'm afraid that if we don't have a correct classification or a correct link after Quang Duc, someone will add a wrong link again soon. It is very easy to add a new wiki link but very difficult to recognize in case it is wrong, 4 years past since the wrong link was there proved that. Leemyongpak (talk) 08:48, 15 November 2021 (UTC)

Yes my mistake, I will keep a watch for it in the future. Mztourist (talk) 04:26, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

Let's make amends

Hello. I am here to apologise for my on-wiki behaviour on your past ANI post in regard to Jamesallain85 (courtesy ping). While I still do not necessarily "side with you" per se (notwithstanding WP:NOTBATTLEGROUND) , I should have been more calm in my approach. I would also like to apologise for my proposed Arbitration case against you (insofar the fact that it is not posted), and thank you for respecting me when I asked you to stop a discussion thread so as to prevent it from going exceedingly off-topic. Sorry, NotReallySoroka (talk) (formerly DePlume) 06:16, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

thank you for your apology. Mztourist (talk) 11:54, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

IMDb is not relible

In your discussion on the sources on Roy Rob McGregor you list IMBd as reliable. IMBd is considered for Wikipedia purposes to not be reliable.John Pack Lambert (talk) 13:36, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

I see the ARS has arrived at this AfD. I didn't follow any of the drama board stuff closely, but weren't some of them banned from participating in AfD stuff? Intothatdarkness 14:40, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Kelley reference used on Vietnam related articles

The Kelley reference used on several Vietnam related articles which I have edited uses a page numbering system where there are several sections in the book and each section starts numbering pages with page one. The citation style I used started with the section number and then the page number. Example: 2—103 means section 2, page 103. It is possible to have the same page number in several sections so that is the reason I chose that system that you have changed. So you know what I have done and why. Cuprum17 (talk) 15:34, 16 December 2021 (UTC)

I know, I have used Kelley as a reference on over 200 pages and constantly have Users change e.g. "page=5-107" to "pages=5-107" assuming that the reference is to multiple pages. Following a discussion at ANI where I have been criticized for the reference format I just went and changed it to "page=107". If I changed any of your pages I apologize. regards Mztourist (talk) 15:52, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
I don't know why you would have been criticized for for stating the obvious. Some editors on here are just a little to picky for my taste. The Kelley reference is laid out the way it is laid out and is very usable that way. To cite it any other way is misleading a person that is checking a citation in my opinion. Keep up the good work on all things relating to the Vietnam War. Cuprum17 (talk) 18:03, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
Check out the method I used in the article Coast Guard Squadron One to call out the correct page reference. This would work on all articles where Kelley is cited. You wouldn't have to worry about which dash or hyphen was used. I personally think that {{hyphen}} looks ignorant. Cuprum17 (talk) 18:13, 16 December 2021 (UTC)
The challenge with the dash is it does look like a page range, especially if you're unfamiliar with the layout of the Kelley book (and I would strongly suspect most people are not familiar with it). I"d suggest using S or sec. to denote the fact that you're referencing a specific section and then add page numbers. Turabin recommends something similar to this for series publications, and it does eliminate the need to use hyphens or whatever. Using the example, it would read S2, 103.
