Pier Head

Thanks for the message. Can't remember why I deleted the Three Graces date "2001/02" - it probably was an oversight on my part. Thanks for putting it back in with additional information.

Regarding the book ref you mentioned, it was added in a "Further Reading" section of this article, along with numerous other Liverpool-related articles, by an anonymous IP address over a short space of time. (See Special:Contributions/86.143.193.117). These were subsequently reverted elsewhere by others for the same reason. It was perceived as promotional spamming and was not a direct reference. Although it may well be relevant, this wasn't readily apparent. Perhaps this should be discussed on Talk:Pier Head or other related talk pages.

As far as Notes/Refs go, I've been lead to believe from Wikipedia guidelines that inline citations are preferrable (WP:CITE#HOW). That said, there are plenty of articles which follow this format (as mentioned in the Refs guidelines), or even: ==Notes== and ==Bibliography== subheadings under an umbrella ==References== heading. This is as long as the listed books support a significant amount of the material in the article. I don't have any objections - a reference in any style is better than nothing at all.

Sorry about the long-winded response. Glad you're also doing some 'cleaning up'. Cheers! Snowy 1973 (talk) 20:20, 10 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sidewalk astronomy

Please see that article's talk page for some (very major) problems cited. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 20:15, 17 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Am I an astronomer? Do I belong to an Astronomical Society? Am I unfamiliar with the term or the concept? errrr....... other than the fact that I haul around some very big telescopes to my astronomical society's public outings..... does it mater? Being an expert on the subject does not matter when editing an article. And creating an article from your own knowledge of the subject is actually discouraged (please read WP:OR). The article in question should have clear references that I or any editor can check to see if it fits Wikipedia's criteria for an encyclopedic article. What do I have in mind? Making sure the article fits Wikipedia's criteria for an encyclopedic article (i.e. making sure it is not a bunch of BS off the top of someones head). Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 21:20, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Re: this comment[1]. If you are trying to make a case for a Wikipedia article based on the merit that "you" think it should exist, or that editing an articles to make it more encyclopedic is "having an axe to grind", then you have missed several Wikipedia guidelines and policy pages along the way. I would suggest starting with WP:ENC, WP:AGF, and WP:CIVIL. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 21:46, 25 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As far as I can tell you haven't tried to do anything except add a nag tag and wait for someone else to fix the problem.

Removal of PROD from ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (film)

Hello Swanny18, this is an automated message from SDPatrolBot to inform you the PROD template you added to ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (film) has been removed. It was removed by EvilCouch with the following edit summary '(You don't prod an article because the plot summary is written badly. You certainly don't do it when a decent plot summary has already been written for it.)'. Please consider discussing your concerns with EvilCouch before pursuing deletion further yourself. If you still think the article should be deleted after communicating with the 'dePRODer,' you may want to send the article to AfD for community discussion. Thank you, SDPatrolBot (talk) 11:21, 21 July 2009 (UTC) (Learn how to opt out of these messages)Reply[reply]

Burden of proof falls on the reverter

I am not required to discuss noncontroversial edits on the talk page. Your revert of the Legion of Honor image back to your own low resolution image is self serving. Consensus is not required to change images of low quality. You are holding the artticle back with ownership issues that are innaopropriate for a Wikipedia editor.

Brown on Resolution

Hi! I'm a little bit concerned about this series of edits of yours. [2]. The opening section now refers to a "cruiser", without previously mentiioning one. Also, your claim that the German cruiser squadron attempted to return to Germany after the outbreak of war is simply wrong - von Spee himself said "I cannot get home" - I can dig out a reference if you want one.

Wallander

Hi Swanny, Thanks for getting in touch. I had decided to let the dust settle a while before rejoining the discussion as I was not sure if there might have been some historical WP:Ownership issues floating around. Your prompt was timely. As Kurt W himself might have done if faced with a temporary blockage, I have tried to offer a contribution to the discussion by pointing to already well-trodden path that may have been overlloked to try and get things pointing in the right direction!. Cheers Tmol42 (talk) 20:56, 16 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On the subject of Wallander, I wasn't planning to take part in the actual discussion, but with this edit you blanked the article Mankell's Wallander and apparently reverted the contents to where it came from. A blank article is never of any use whatsoever to our readers; the proper action is usually to create a redirect in those cases, which I now have done. I hope it was a mistake rather than a WP:POINT edit, but please do not blank any more articles even if you disagree with them. Tomas e (talk) 14:07, 17 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

reply from my talk page

Thanks for the help. As for your question, I am not sure what you are asking me. If your question is whether I am a Neo-Nazi or support it in some capacity, then the answer is no. Nazism was essentially the embodiment of everything that is wrong with humanity. I am simply documenting history, particularly one of the most important and perhaps the most terrible events in history, The Holocaust. There are many reasons, most notably because it is not sufficiently documented, because it should belong to the public domain, because of the unique nature of many aspects of it, because I find it fascinating, and hopefully to help prevent such a thing from happening again.Hoops gza (talk) 00:37, 18 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry for the delay.

Numbering for these very old earldoms is a bit fraught (see this discussion spawned by the business), but in this case, the renumbering seems to have brought us in line with the ODNB, which seems like a good idea.

Re diacritics question

Swanny18, I sincerely appreciate questions like this as they force me to reflect on my WP philosophy and how that philosophy has manifested itself in individual WP processes. Your question, (and conclusion) about the lack of consensus around diacritics is astute. As a community, we don’t have a coherent, consistent policy around the use of diacritics in article titles. You’ve really asked me two questions—What is my RM closing rationale? and How should you proceed to attempt to better establish WP policy re diacritics? This first is easy to answer, the second I can only suggest.

When I close an RM, I first look for a clear consensus of support or opposition to the suggested move. If editors are opposing a move and their arguments have any basis in policy or guidelines, then their opposes tend to lead to a no consensus move. When it comes to article titles, status quo is a powerful argument. If the current article title is doing no harm to WP—ie. we aren’t calling dogs, cats—there must be a really sound policy argument for changing an existing title. Unfortunately, all that being said, our WP titling policies, guidelines and MOS are really inconsistent and almost impossible to interpret and apply across a wide variety of articles. (I’ve been pretty vocal about that at Holistic approach to article titles). It always seems to come down to local consensus on any given article without regard to any consistency in policy application.

Now, where to go from here. How should you proceed to try and sort out the use of diacritics in article titles in WP. Well, first, understand there are no, third party, neutral arbitrators at WP. We are all editors, and even admins are editors with opinions. Admins perform duties within the bounds of individual WP processes and essentially only assess local consensus on any issue. To bring the issue of diacritics to the fore and potentially arrive at a resolution I would suggest an WP:RFC at Wikipedia_talk:Article_titles. Draft the RFC in your user space. Be very specific as to the question you are asking. Leave no doubt as to what the issue is. If you ask a vague question, you’ll get vague, useless responses. If you want the policy to be a certain way, be clear about it. By drafting the RFC in your user space you can seek the advice of others before going live. Remember, real policy change comes very slowly within the WP community. Even, if as I believe our WP title policy, is completely dysfunctional, it will be a long time before we see substantive change. Patience within the WP policy realm is a virtue. --Mike Cline (talk) 01:02, 29 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Merging articles

You need an explanation? WP:ALASKA at present has 1,600 stubs. This doesn't include the hundreds more which weren't tagged for the project for whatever reason. Most of these articles exist because of the ease of and/or lack of copyright restrictions on available source material, not necessarily because a need existed. In the specific case of these four articles, coverage of Alaska state government appears to follow an importance order more applicable to the structure of Wikipedia than to the structure of the government itself. If the issue really is a lack of explanation on the talk page, there's very few of us pursuing this specific issue, with probably more work to do than time to do it. Therefore, it's likely I'm going to miss talk page discussions in order to make sufficient progress. Most of these articles will continue to languish as stubs that no one gives a shit about until someone does something. What you did amounts to just trying to make the problem go away.RadioKAOS (talk) 13:21, 21 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, to save going round in circles, I've proposed a non-conflicting title for your new article. If it isn't exactly right, you can move it to something you find more suitable, or I can do so for you if you aren't sure of the procedure. "Dazzle ship" however was and is not available - you reused it from an existing correct redirect, so you knew it was already in use, and could easily have checked why it was redirected.

Re:The City And The City (TV series)

User:Swanny18, I am a new page reviewer. As such, I properly categorized and patrolled The City And The City (TV series). You are not permitted to leave rude messages on my talk paage when I'm just doing my job per WP:CIVIL. You may also wish to brush up on WP:OWN. I hope this helps. With regards, AnupamTalk 21:30, 22 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The 15 minute guideline is with respect to tagging an article for deletion, not making constructive improvements to the article. Categorizing an article is not considered "trashing someone's work". Since you don't seem to understand how article categorization works, I'll patrol the article at a later time. Cheers, AnupamTalk 21:44, 22 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please assume good faith in your dealings with other editors. Assume that they are here to improve rather than harm Wikipedia. AnupamTalk 21:32, 22 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
