Your edit to gun controlEdit

I understand why you added the content you added to gun control. However, you added it in the "studies and debates" section, despite the fact that this section (despite its name) really only contains scientific studies of gun control, not debates. Also, this page, confusingly, doesn't talk about gun control proposals in the US, which seem to be better covered at gun politics in the United States.

UK/EUEdit

For clarification. The referendum is advisory to the government. In practice it can be regarded as binding, no government would survive ignoring one. Once the government decides to act it notifies the EU that it intents to invoke section 50 of the treaty. Until that happens the UK is a fully functioning member of the EU. Once section 50 is invoked the UK enters into negotiations with the EU over the precise arrangements and timing. Only at the end of that period (roughly 2 years) will the UK be finally separated from the EU. It's a bit like a divorce - once notification is given the two parties are estranged. The lawyers though will argue about property and money before the decree nisi. The treaties set a date when the decree absolute comes into force.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 2016 Summer Olympics torch relay, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sao Mateus.

Olaf SandnerEdit

Great job on the Olympian death dates thus far! One question though - are you certain that this is the Olympic Olaf Sandner? Maybe I'm missing it, but I don't see the smoking gun. Keep up the good work! Canadian Paul 20:10, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

  • The link https://prezi.com/kio6ap-4zonq/copy-of-dr-olaf-sadner/?webgl=0 confirms the birthdate, so I think that is enough evidence that this is the correct person. Also, I've been working on the basketball players in the 1936 Olympics over the past week, some of which may be of interest to your page. I haven't done any research outside of Sports Reference yet, so any help would be great. EternalNomad (talk) 02:18, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
Oops, I missed that one, so yes, that looks good! As for 1936 basketball players, they are among a group I go over about once a year, and I haven't found anything new in a while - a pair of fresh eyes might be very useful! Canadian Paul 20:29, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Special:Diff/722530141Edit

Hi EternalNomad. Could you please have a second look at your edit. I do not see a death date in the source you mentioned. --Leyo 22:42, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

  • The death date got removed from the site for unclear reason. It is likely because of a website error related to the upcoming transfer of the data from the site to Olympedia. EternalNomad (talk) 01:07, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
It would probably be good to either find a(nother) source for his death or to remove this statement from the article. --Leyo 07:43, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
I do actually expect a reply. While there is no death date given in Hans Dürst's profile, there is one in the profiles of two former teammates ([1][2]). --Leyo 08:26, 15 February 2017 (UTC)
I've edited the page to remove the death date until the data gets transferred onto the new site. EternalNomad (talk) 18:16, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Presumption of deathEdit

Hello, EternalNomad. I noticed that you've recently been treating the subjects of certain biographies as being dead, with their years of death not given. But WP:BDP tells us that, absent reliable sourcing, no one under the age of 115 should be presumed dead. And the instructions at Category:Possibly living people tell us that, for persons between the ages of 90 and 115, we generally categorize them as "possibly living" (again, in the absence of reliable sourcing otherwise). Do you see any reason why we should not be following these rules in the articles you recently edited? NewYorkActuary (talk) 01:29, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

  • There has been a general WP:IAR consensus among most admins as well as others that anyone over 110 should be presumed deceased unless evidence indicates otherwise, because there would undoubtedly be a news story about a notable person reaching 110 otherwise. EternalNomad (talk) 01:40, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt response. It's been my experience that editors who go against WP:BDP typically do so only because they aren't aware that it exists. Can you point me to discussions where administrators have acknowledged the existence of WP:BDP but still agreed to ignore it? NewYorkActuary (talk) 02:45, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
      • The talk page of the PLP category (Category talk:Possibly living people) contains a discussion, in which at least three users including well-known admin Canadian Paul agree that 110 should be the limit in practice. The standard has also been reaffirmed on CP's talk page, and used by other users as well (see the edit history of Jack William Pithey for example) EternalNomad (talk) 05:01, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

Deaths in 2017Edit

Hi, EternalNomad, Thanks for your contributions to the encyclopedia. I've had to revert your recent change to Deaths in 2017, as such facts are governed by guidelines concerning biographies of living people (which includes recently deceased people). Changes to BLPs and articles containing facts about such people require strict adherence to WP:BLPSOURCE, and IMDb does not qualify. For more on this, please see WP:ELPEREN.

Presidents and Vice Presidents of PalauEdit

In my opinion, it would be a good idea to combine the articles President of Palau and Vice President of Palau. Both are short articles. We could redirect Vice Presidents of Palau to President of Palau. I would like your thoughts on this.Векочел (talk) 02:01, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

  • My issue with that is that the VP of a sovereign nation is in itself a highly notable position. If we do a redirect, the page Vice President of Palau would redirect to a page mainly about presidents, which could be inconvenient for readers. I'm fine with listing the corresponding VP's next to the presidents as is what is being done now, but I still think the notability of VP's merits their own article.

Ri Kun MoEdit

Hello,

The book about North Korea is from 2005, but Mansourov's essay may be even from 2014. So we have two options, assuming the 2011 source which reports him being still alive is reliable:

  • The essay is from 2005 and Mansurov only presumed Li's death, maybe because he resigned in 19898 due to "bad health". In that case we should mantain Ri is still alive and readd him to the list.
  • The essay is from 2014 and Mansourov had good inside sources from North Korea. Maybe he had fallen out of grace and only got short mentions in local newspapers. That means he would have died either in 2012 or 2013, which would be a good accuracy. If that's the case we should add "2012 or 2013" as Ri's Date of Death and the question will be closed forever.

This is not valid if the 2011 source does not tell the truth, obviously. The quickest way to solve the problem is contactin Mansourov, who is still alive and active, and ask him about Ri. Do you agree? --Folengo (talk) 18:38, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

  • I agree that this would be helpful, but a personal testimony is generally not sufficient for Wiki purposes unless it is verified by WP:OTRS. I'm not entirely familiar with OTRS but I think that it is just a matter of contacting an admin with your information. But we cannot include him until we have proper and non-contradictory evidence that he is still alive. EternalNomad (talk) 04:25, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Equal Rights Amendment ITNEdit

With all due respect, I disagree with your comment on my ITN nomination. While the "deadline" for ratification has long since passed, there is a continued effort to ratify ERA. Congress extended the deadline previously and it is not inconceivable that this Congress, or any subsequent Congress, could choose to do the same, if a 38th state ratifies. A common argument of opponents to ratification is just this, that the "deadline" passed 35 years ago, but the issue is still present and is significant. I would like to request that you reopen the ITN discussion on this matter. StrikerforceTalk 15:25, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

  • I understand that the effort is still there, but I don't think one state ratifying the ERA is appropriate for ITN, because nothing has actually changes except the "possibility" of the ERA becoming law. If the amendment actually entered the constitution, that would be an entirely different story, and I would probably support posting, because that would actually have a huge effect around the nation. This is similar to why we didn't post the appeals court verdicts prior to the Obergefell v. Hodges case; because the Supreme Court is the law of the land, and appellate cases didn't produce actual ramifications. EternalNomad (talk) 04:30, 2 June 2018 (UTC)
