QuestionEdit

Your recent revert of my edits seem to contradict the banner on the top of Category:Mass shootings in the United States which states "all mass shootings in the United States should be included in this category". Your edit defeats the purpose of this banner. I was adding this to a few pages that didn't include said category. However, a few pages do include the parent category and a subcategory for example: Aurora, Illinois shooting contains the categories Category:Mass shootings in Illinois as well as Category:Mass shootings in the United States. Shouldn't all pages be consistently categorized? Tinton5 (talk) 00:22, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Tinton5, Hmm, I'm not sure. I don't see the point in having entries in the parent as well as subcategories, but I guess I won't revert if you feel the parent category needs to be added back? ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:35, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

YvieEdit

Before that Oddly didn’t embrace all the opportunities being a drag artist offered as he was just a “skinny, black, gay guy,” Oddly said.[3] Gleeanon409 (talk) 17:29, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, I'm not sure why you're posting this on my talk page. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:29, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
You asked if there was a source for Yvie Oddly’s being gay. When I added the category the system didn’t allow me to add a comment so I posted here. Gleeanon409 (talk) 21:47, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
Gleeanon409, Thanks for clarifying. I'll make sure the category has been added back. ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:24, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank You for Your Hard Work!Edit

Thank you for contributing to such as a sensitive topic like you did for the Virginia Beach shooting. <3 Snowycats (talk) 14:28, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
@Snowycats: Thank you for the recognition. I love starting and following the development of current events articles. ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:56, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Question on RevertEdit

You reverted an edit I made to the ZoomCare article and stated that the revert set it back to the sourced version, but the previous edit has no source. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=ZoomCare&oldid=prev&diff=899198987&diffmode=source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tas50 (talkcontribs) 19:01, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Tas50, Thanks, I changed back to 37, but kept 2018 per the sourced introduction. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:36, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Women's March on PortlandEdit

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Women's March on Portland you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.   This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ashorocetus -- Ashorocetus (talk) 00:21, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Reversing RoeEdit

Hi, there. I've created the article for the film Reversing Roe, but as you "created" it first as a redirect, it doesn't appear on my list of pages created. Is there anything I can do to make it appear on my list? Regards.--SirEdimon (talk) 00:15, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

SirEdimon, If I'm being honest, I'm not sure. For future reference, when I'm looking to override a redirect, I usually write my article in the draft space (such as Draft:Reversing Roe) and then submit a request to have the page moved into the main space at Wikipedia:Requested moves. I don't know if Wikipedia:Requests for history merge is a place for help. Of course, you're welcome to simply claim credit, but I understand if you want the article history to reflect your work. I often just expand articles from redirects, just depends on the situation. There may be a solution but I don't know off hand. Perhaps a talk page stalker can point you in the right direction. ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:23, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. I have created the draft on my draft space before even realizing the redirect. I'll try the Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thanks for your help.--SirEdimon (talk) 20:05, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Women's March on PortlandEdit

The article Women's March on Portland you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold  . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Women's March on Portland for issues which need to be addressed. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ashorocetus -- Ashorocetus (talk) 21:01, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Ashorocetus, Thanks, I've replied in all section and am willing to revisit as needed. ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:20, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Holocene (Portland, Oregon) copyeditEdit

@Miniapolis: Thank you! ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:23, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Women's March on PortlandEdit

The article Women's March on Portland you nominated as a good article has passed  ; see Talk:Women's March on Portland for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Ashorocetus -- Ashorocetus (talk) 22:02, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

  CheckUser changes

  Ivanvector

  Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

  Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

List of songs recorded by Florence and the Machine listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect List of songs recorded by Florence and the Machine. Since you had some involvement with the List of songs recorded by Florence and the Machine redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you wish to do so. feminist (talk) 14:06, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Desmond NapolesEdit

I improved this article mainly in late May. I’m not sure if it helps for the Wiki Loves Pride. Gleeanon409 (talk) 20:06, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, You've made some improvements in June as well, and I'll probably make a few now as well. I invite you to add this to the Wiki Loves Pride list! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:08, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Gleeanon409 Actually, I went ahead and added, since I made some minor changes and added the banner to the talk page as well. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:13, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
You got there first! No problem.
Would you do me a favor and look at Desmond’s entry at [1]? As far as I can tell he is both 1. The most famous drag kid in the world and 2. The youngest professional drag queen in the world but I’m getting like no sources feedback that’s really definitive or even about the content I’d like to add. Am I at the right place? Should I start over that a fourth source was found? I don’t know what to do. Gleeanon409 (talk) 20:22, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

HeyEdit

Did you see my question on the talk page for Robert E. Lee on Traveller?MagicatthemovieS (talk) 04:08, 16 June 2019 (UTC)MagicatthemovieS

DYK for Parish of Jesús María and Our Lady of MercyEdit

 On 17 June 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Parish of Jesús María and Our Lady of Mercy, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Philip II of Spain approved funds for a convent because his illegitimate daughter was living there? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Parish of Jesús María and Our Lady of Mercy. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Parish of Jesús María and Our Lady of Mercy), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
