Coherent reply policy

If I put a message on your talk page, I will be watching that page for a reply. If you leave a message here, I will reply here, unless you request otherwise.


Hi. Can you please guide me where to put that request? Because when I used the template, it itself suggested me for this page. Thanks! M. Billoo 06:38, 18 February 2022 (UTC)

M.Billoo2000, The template does not say to put an RM discussion on the Wikipedia Talk:Requested moves page. It says to put it on the talk page of the page being proposed for a move. In this case that’s Talk:Geo TV. If you think the template wording is unclear about this please let me know exactly which words led you astray. But the template instructions seem pretty clear to me.

Please note that unlike {{Article for deletion}}, the discussion for a page move must take place on the talk page, not on Wikipedia:Requested moves.

Add this template at the bottom of the talk page of the page that you want to be moved.

Thank you. —-В²C 07:05, 18 February 2022 (UTC)

Yes, it was good adviceEdit

I probably wouldn't have commented, but for the #Good advice for me section on your UP, in which at least three users made the same comment about limiting redundant comments at Talk pages. One user labeled the ideal response at a TP discussion as "one and done". Those comments were ten years ago, but they are still good advice now. And still worth following, at Talk:Schutzstaffel for example, where your frequent replies to comments in the #Survey section are definitely in WP:BLUDGEON territory, and about as far from "one and done" as you can get. Note that as far as the *content* of your comments there, I agree almost completely with your position (even if I didn't, that would be neither here nor there); I just wanted you to know that I'm not mentioning bludgeoning because I disagree with your comments, but in spite of the fact that I agree with you. Also, the fact that you linked BLUDGEON from your UP in the "Essays" section, made it seem pretty apt to mention here. Hope this helps; the intent is in the spirit of your invitation to editor review at the top of the page. Cheers, Mathglot (talk) 21:57, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder. RMs like that are frustrating because so many seem to participate without reading much of the discussion, so replying to them directly often seems like the only way to get them to see a point even if it’s already been made. So I keep getting sucked in. But I see the folly too. Thanks for the reminder. —В²C 00:39, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
