Thanks for you principled standEdit

  The Barnstar of Integrity
For your principled opposition to defamatory synthesis μηδείς (talk) 00:44, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

The P. Papers item should never have been posted at ITN, it is pure synthesis (offshore > evil) and violates WP:BLP and a host of other policies. I didn't get involved for the mere reason that opposing SJW presumptions gets you nothing but enemies. Some of us have age and or reason to teach us that salacious headlines are not guilty verdicts.

Bravo! for your (censored) effort at a mature approach to a tabloid meme that has already disappeared from public consciousness. μηδείς (talk) 00:40, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Sorry, I thanked you twice by mistakeEdit

Sorry, if you're wondering why you have two thanks from me in quick succession, the first one (for Trump-Kim) was a mistake. The second one (your reasons for supporting posting the French Open to ITN) was the one I intended to thank you for. I guess I might as well now add a 'Support per Banedon', even though it's almost certainly a waste of time.Tlhslobus (talk) 23:50, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

Schrepfer incomplete sentenceEdit

Thanks for pointing out this mistake. It turned out that more than just one word was missing. I've fixed it.Joortje1 (talk) 09:14, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

Modern practice in the QGAEdit

I reverted the "In modern practice" qualifier in Queen's Gambit Accepted because I didn't think it was correct. But I looked at the article again, and it does claim that it was common for Black to try to hold the gambit pawn before 1886. I am a little dubious about this, but quite possibly I am wrong. The article is very specific that it was the 1886 WC match and this seems very unlikely to be random original research added by an editor on a whim. I'm not sure that the current formulation "Black usually allows the pawn to be recaptured" is the best either. I think we should find a source that says something that can be used to directly support some version of the sentence and use that if we can. Quale (talk) 08:23, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

@Quale: I'd put that on the talk page, since MaxBrowne's clearly also watching the page and we might as well centralize the discussion there. Banedon (talk) 12:42, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Many hands...Edit

Hopefully this is more like what you wanted to say, in your change to The New York Journal of Mathematics? Shenme (talk) 00:13, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Parapsychology Request for CommentEdit

Thank you for participating in the parapsychology request for comment. Can you please clarify your intention for me? You have placed your vote in support but your explanation seems to indicate oppose. Do you mean that reliable sources should be excluded or included? The question is "Should reliable sources that defend parapsychology be excluded altogether?" So support means exclude and oppose means include. Thank you. Morgan Leigh | Talk 05:10, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Users left feedback they they didn't the the RfC was neutral enough. I have closed it and opened a new one here Morgan Leigh | Talk 08:23, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Unbeaten streaks in competitive chessEdit

I've tried verifying the figures previously given at List of world records in chess, but, stumbled when attempting to use the official FIDE rating calculation details for Wang Yue. If you sum up the games from the 2nd round of the 2008 Reykjavík Open through the end of the Dresden Olympiad, you only obtain 74 games, in contrast to the ChessBase source long cited on Wang Yue's page here. matches the results of FIDE except for the exclusion of two events in 2nd Quarter 2008 (13 games total), but it includes the Russia–China Match held in September of that year in Ningbo, from which Wang Yue played 5 games. So, even if one takes the union of the games from FIDE's calculations and, that results in 79 games. Where are the remaining 3? 365Chess doesn't even include the 2008 Reykjavík Open, so no use searching there. CaradhrasAiguo (leave language) 06:07, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

@CaradhrasAiguo: Strongly suggest putting that on the article's talk page - there'll be more people who are watching that. The short answer is: I don't know. Banedon (talk) 06:12, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

About pingsEdit

Hi, Banedon. Re this: I'm afraid that won't ping OR. If you want to add a ping to a comment you have previously written, it won't work to merely add the editor's name in a template. You need to start a new line, and sign again. See WP:PING: if the mention is not on a completely new line with a new signature, no notification will be sent. Bolding in the original. Hope this helps. Bishonen | talk 23:49, 30 June 2019 (UTC).


Please refactor your remark.[1] You don't get to call other editors "delusional". Are you a psychiatrist? Did you examine this person? Did they give you permission to make public statments about their mental condition? I guessing your answers are "no", "no" and "no". Try the words "misinformed" or "mistaken" instead.
