BiannualEdit

No, "biannual" means twice per year. Look it up. "Biennial" means every two years. (I think some people do commonly use "biannual" to mean "biennial". I'm not sure if this usage is flat-out wrong or if it's an acceptable alternate usage.) Good Ol’factory (talk) 00:56, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Singapore Temple TemplateEdit

Hello. I wanted to stop by and thank you for updating the Singapore Temple with the correct exact location, and to let you know what happened there. I generally have been adding the templates for newly-announced temples as they are created, or have created them when they did not exist. Since such a template had not been created for the Singapore temple, I opted to get that template started. But in doing so, I wanted to make sure that the information I included was accurate. So I created the Singapore template by copying over the information from the Cape Town temple template and making the necessary adjustments to change over that information for the Singapore temple. That seemed to be the easiest method since the Cape Town temple was announced just seconds before the Singapore temple. But apparently, I didn't notice that I had left some of the copied information as it was rather than inserting the correct information about Singapore. So it was basically a matter of copying over the Cape Town template but forgetting to change some of that copied information to ensure it was accurate for the Singapore Temple. I apologize for any confusion this action on my part may have caused. Thanks for catching the error. Hope all is well with you. Keep up the great work. --Jgstokes (talk) 04:08, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

This empty category was tagged as part of a CFD discussion but when I went to the discussions, which you closed, it was not listed in the discussions. Can I remove the CFD tag and tag it as an empty category? Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 01:20, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Cat 1948 Palestinian exodusEdit

Hi, I saw you put some items back into this cat. I am trying to empty it (I did two reverts and only then saw your close on the Nakba delete discussion) and then delete it (so I had to empty and delete the films first) because there is another cat History of the Palestine refugees which was/is being used for "refugee" (48 Exodus is refugee item as are the other exodus articles) items (so I put the films in there).

Idk how it came to be but the logical Palestine refugees cat is being used for biographies of Palestine refugees. What would be best is if there were a cat Bios of Palestinian refugees for those and then use Palestinian refugees for refugee related items.

Sorry if I am going about this wrong, I haven't really paid that much attention to cats in the past but seems that I should.Selfstudier (talk) 09:41, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

OK, I get the idea of how to do it now, I will put it up officially, it's not that it is in "favor of Nakba" it's that if you have a cat for refugees in general and you have a cat for Nakba then you don't need this cat any more. By the look of it, this problem (and there seem to be some others) has arisen in the past due to some unclear category editing. Using the related nav boxes and lists you don't have this problem, they just need a better alignment. Thanks for help, sorry again if I messed things up.Selfstudier (talk) 12:24, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Book of AbrahamEdit

Hey there. I know you know my thoughts on using the word “Mormon” at all, but even ignoring that, I’m not sure changing “Latter-day Saint” to “Mormon” is the right choice in this case. This applies more particularly to the first instance, in which the term “Mormon” is unnecessarily broad: it’s talking about a specific event, i.e. when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints received the papyri in 1966. The Church requested the opinion of certain, specific scholars, all of whom were members of that specific organization. Ergo, they actually were Latter-day Saints (not merely members of the Latter Day Saint movement). I think at the very least, this one should be “Latter-day Saints”.

The other two instances are a bit muddier. I can live with the term “Mormon”, since it is possible that there are relevant scholars in other Latter Day Saint groups who also believe the Book of Abraham to be scripture. I’m certainly not aware of any, but it is possible. But that being said, if we don’t know if they exist, is it really appropriate to consider them in an encyclopedic article?

Your thoughts are appreciated. TheOtter (talk) 13:28, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I'm not sure that it's useful to have different usages in the same article. The distinction is way too subtle for most people to notice, let alone care about. The word "Mormon" is far more recognizable than "Latter-day Saint". (We have an article on Mormons, but not one on Latter Day Saints.) "Non-Latter-day Saint" just isn't a very common word, but "non-Mormon" certainly is. I find the entire "Mormon" vs. "Latter-day Saint" debate to be quite unusual and arcane.

May I ask a question about categories for discussion?Edit

I'm not particularly knowledgeable about bundled nominations. I've made two bundled noms in the last two weeks, and two top level cats for April 21. The April 23 nomination Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2021_April_23#ACW_Confederate_units doesn't seem to gathered sufficient consensus, IMHO. Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2021_April_22#ACW_Union_units outcome is also unclear, though in both cases useful comments have been made. Suppose the closer concludes "rename". Do I re-format the nominated categories to match the latest (and best IMHO) version by Buckshot06? Does the bot do that? BusterD (talk) 04:03, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

An admin will come along and close the discussions (eventually–at least in theory!), which will make clear what will happen. The admin could choose to go with Buckshot06's suggestion, in which case the admin will make sure that the bot makes the correct changes. If it's a "no consensus" close then nothing is changed by the admin. Good Ol’factory (talk) 04:09, 4 May 2021 (UTC)

Re: South Slavic surname categoriesEdit

I'm not sure what you mean about parent categories. I went to have a look, but I was confused because I saw e.g. Category:Croatian origin, which isn't actually what we discussed :) can you fix them to say "surnames" instead of "origin", please? --Joy [shallot] (talk) 15:36, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Joy, sorry, that was a total brain-freeze on my part. I'm not sure why I put in "origin" instead of "surnames". I have put these in the work queue to correct this.
By parent categories, I mean the categories that the renamed categories are "in". For instance, if you go to Category:Bosnian surnames, it is in the parent category Category:Bosnian language and Category:Serbo-Croatian-language surnames. Is this still appropriate? Good Ol’factory (talk) 23:09, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

TaggingEdit

An editor who is apparently unexperienced at CfD has nominated a whole tree without tagging every category page, in this discussion. I am not too sure if tagging is very important in this particular case, also because the creator of the categories is already involved in the discussion. But if you would insist in having all of them tagged then you'd better interfere. Marcocapelle (talk) 07:31, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Category:Deaths from cerbrovascular insultEdit

Hello. I get what you were doing and I respect that. My reason for re-creating the Category:Deaths from stroke category and improving on the already existing category Category:Deaths by intracerebral hemorrhage was because the existing category Category:Deaths from cerebrovascular disease already had a massive amount of pages where the subject died from strokes, cerebral haemorrhages, cerebral infarctions, etc, without a specific cause of death within the page’s category section. So, I made those two pages as subcategories for the Category:Deaths from cerebrovascular disease just so that we can try to be a bit more specific. I personally thought that the reason for the page’s deletion was ridiculous because there are already numerous causes of deaths on Wikipedia where we are already well specific enough about certain causes of deaths such as cancer, dementia, suicides, traffic collisions, etc. There are also numerous foreign language variations of the category page as seen on Wikidata and the fact that the page is supposedly non-defining is based off a completely biased opinion, and whether or not it’s a way common cause of death is totally irrelevant because some category pages with a cause of death as the title have over thousands of subjects in that one category page, which is what led me to create the page Category:Deaths from cerebrovascular insult after the category was deleted. When the category pages were deleted, all the pages that I placed into the Category:Deaths from stroke page were not even re-categorised.

That is the reason for doing what I did and I do apologise If I came across as a disruptive editor. I just wanted us to try and be more specific about death causes. 20SS00 (talk) 19:19, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment. I suppose the contents of Category:Deaths from stroke could have been upmerged somewhere, but judging by the opinions expressed, users probably would not have wanted that. Good Ol’factory (talk) 23:55, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Merge of Buddhist Sangha into Buddhist MonasticismEdit

I think this Category merge was hasty and incorrect: in Sangha, immediately after the definition cited as rationale in the nomination, appears clear evidence that, in many Buddhist communities, Sangha is a supercategory of monastics: "Mahayana practitioners may use the word "sangha" as a collective term for all Buddhists" and "The two meanings overlap but are not necessarily identical. Some members of the ideal Sangha are not ordained".

Thus, for example, Achar (Buddhism) now appears in Category:Buddhist monasticism even though "An achar… is a lay Buddhist upāsaka" and therefore explicitly not monastic, as further confirmed in Upāsaka and Upāsikā, which itself is now also miscategorized under the same category, along with Dharma name and others. Therefore, these changes should be reverted.

I have put a similar comment on the talk page of the nominator. —KGF0 ( T | C ) 18:09, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

  • @Kgf0: you have a fair point. I suggest establishing a Category:Upāsaka and Upāsikā, that way the scope will far less ambiguous than with the original category name. Marcocapelle (talk) 20:18, 12 July 2021 (UTC)
    • @Marcocapelle: Dharma name, for one ready example, would not be limited to Upasakas and monastics either, however, and would apply to both. I, for example, am neither, yet I have a dharma name. Is your concern that a category as broad as Sangha will acquire cruft? If so, is it any more likely than the parent Category:Intentional communities, or half the subcategories of that? I am perhaps having difficulty seeing what was the problem that the merge was intended to solve. —KGF0 ( T | C ) 22:20, 12 July 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)
