The Republic of Ireland

The articles, which I believe you have contributed to, about the results of the Republic of Ireland national team have been nominated for deletion. I have spoken up for keeping them. Djln--Djln (talk) 21:28, 2 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Thanks for the response on the talk page. Most people seem to really like it, even in its not-nearly-finished state. I'm glad the response has been so positive. Wrad (talk) 06:05, 4 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AfD nomination of Ireland national football team (IFA)

An editor has nominated Ireland national football team (IFA), an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ireland national football team (IFA) and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 23:14, 8 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Jnestorius, like your mock up with kits, infobox etc. Slight disagreement over wording in opening paragraph but nothing that can’t be sorted. Disappointed to see Fasnacah has nominated arrticle for deletion. Very petty. Djln--Djln (talk) 00:07, 9 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mallow, County Cork

Thank you so much for adding the details of the etymology of "Mallow". I'd made the original comments re. the name confusion as Gaeilge but I'd no idea as to it's complexity and depth. Awesome research and thanks for sharing :) - Alison 09:10, 27 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, thank you for the promptest thanks I've had on Wikipedia! --jnestorius(talk) 09:11, 27 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You're welcome :) I've lived in Mallow for years and never knew that. BTW - in a blatant attempt at wiki promotion, could I possibly interest you in [1] ? It's been restarted last August having been dormant for years and things are really coming on there. Your expertise would be awesome :) - Alison 09:20, 27 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Frank Capra

I think what you're trying to accomplish on that article is a little akin to putting a "Not to be confused with Theodore Roosevelt" hatnote on Franklin Roosevelt's article. Is there a basis for confusion? If not, the hatnote is not warranted. Hatnotes don't exist merely to link together articles of similar names. Placement of "Francis Capra" on a "Capra" disambiguation page would be appropriate, but unless he has gone by the name of "Frank Capra" in his career, people refer to him as "Frank" publicly, or there is evidence of confusion between the two, the hatnote is not in accordance with guidelines.

Thanks for you interest in the St. Patrick's Blue article; the mention of the Blueshirts is a valued addition. However, a cross reference websearch of Blueshirts and St. Patrick's Blue revealed no correspondence. Until we have more, we must correctly keep the mention of the Blueshirts in the "other blues" section. House of Scandal (talk) 04:31, 19 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Death of John Lennon

Can you explain why you took out the definite article = The? It must be "The death of John Lennon", or "John Lennon's death", because any other way makes no grammatical sense.

Maybe it should be "John Lennon (death)".--andreasegde (talk) 00:11, 5 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

See Wikipedia:Naming conventions (definite and indefinite articles at beginning of name). And compare the names of all the other articles in Category:Deaths by person. jnestorius(talk) 00:16, 5 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Recognizing German football titles

Okay, so I'm a little confused, but its percolating through I think. If I read right, there are actually two systems in place (?), one that recognizes Bundesliga championships (multiple, non-numbered stars) that is in use in by Bundesliga-level teams and a separate protocol for recognizing historical and East German titles (a single, numbered star) for everybody else? Maybe that just needs to be said explicitly. Sorry if I messed up your edit. Wiggy! (talk) 01:45, 7 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think you might benefit from reading Defamation, and try to understand the difference between a statement of fact, and an opinion. The section Other Defenses - Opinion, refers. Myers wrote an opinion piece on Wikiepdia. I wrote an opinion on Myers' story. Absent libel, you have no standing to remove that opinion. --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:17, 27 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For a a journalist to deliberately falsify the information on which he reports, for personal gain, is professional misconduct. To sugggest this on based on the flimsy evidence you provided is defamatory.
In any case, you might benefit from reading Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines, in particular:
  • "Article talk pages should not be used by editors as platforms for their personal views."
  • "Talk pages are for discussing the article, not for general conversation about the article's subject"
  • "Some examples of appropriately editing others' comments:
  • Removing prohibited material such as libel and personal details
  • Deleting material not relevant to improving the article (per the above subsection How to use article talk pages)."

Bot approved: dabbing help needed

Hi there. Fritz bot has been approved at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/FritzpollBot for filling in a possible 1.8 million articles on settlements across the world. Now dabbing needs to be done for links which aren't sorted as the bot will bypass any blue links. and I need as many people as possible to help me with Wikipedia:WikiProject Missing encyclopedic articles/Places to prepare for the bot. If you could tackle a page or two everything counts as it will be hard to do it alone. PLease also pass on the message to anybody else who you may think might be willing to help.

Saul Malatrasi/Miodrag Belodedici

Hi, Thanks for the clarification on the Malatrasi/Belodedici issue Actually I had known it so myself that Belodedici was the first player with this achievement, but when I found the referenced page with Malatrasi I thought that I had been wrong before. It seems I have somehow overlooked the section of the article that describes that Malatrasi actually did not play in both finals. Regards Gruen (talk) 22:36, 16 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Leonard Feeney

A weird situation on that article with User:Rvaste. He really seems to have no intention to discuss the changes with other editors, I saw you already tried to discuss things with him to no avail. I am not touching that article anymore for a while, I already reverted too many times than I like and want to. Garion96 (talk) 21:09, 4 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm sure your right but...

Why in National sport are all sports lowercase as per MOS:CAPS: "Wikipedia's house style avoids unnecessary capitalization; most capitalization is for proper names, acronyms, and initialisms. but Gaelic games isn't ? Am well confusedGnevin (talk) 16:51, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's capitalised within the Gaelic games article. I recall some debate in the past in which I took no part; I don't care either way but I felt we ought to at least be consistent between articles. jnestorius(talk) 16:54, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
But so is Pato, I've never really understood MOS:CAPS or its application,it has always seemed very inconsistent Gnevin (talk) 17:05, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Pato is lowercase at en:Pato and (mostly) at es:Pato (deporte); external usage is divided, so it seems justifiable to lowercase it. jnestorius(talk) 17:41, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok thanks Gnevin (talk) 19:47, 14 July 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of Bands whose names form complete sentences

Hey - I was just wandering around and stumbled across your User:Jnestorius/List of Bands whose names form complete sentences. Just wanted to say, nice work! I was hoping there would be a namespace article listing bands based on characteristics of their name, but figured (correctly?) that those usually don't survive deletion debates. Anyway, your list looks good, very comprehensive, and interestingly organized. Dylan (talk) 14:28, 10 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Intro to Treaty of Versailles

I see you reverted my change to the lead of this article, in particular the first sentence. You reverted, without giving a reason, back to this :

"The Treaty of Versailles was a peace treaty at the end of World War I that officially ended the state of war between Germany and the Allied Powers. "

from this

"The Treaty of Versailles was the peace treaty which officially ended World War I between Germany and the Allied Powers.

You reverted a succinct sentence with no repetition back to one that basically says the treaty ended the war at the end of the war. I have restored my version. Kaiwhakahaere (talk) 22:04, 11 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jack the Ripper and the POV fork article

Thanks for your comments on the talk page and the merge notice. As you can see there's a bit of a problem with a group of people on the talk page who seem to oppose any policy that gets in their way. It'd be helpful to try to get more real editors to show up and weigh in. An RFC or some other way to get new views may be in order. DreamGuy (talk) 17:49, 7 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Issue (periodical and newspaper terminology)

Many thanks for your highly illuminating response, and especially for your having gone the distance and providing a link to examples of my particular case. It was a relief, and more: how gratifying to see that the wording closely matched my provisional treatment (down to "Title" and "Caption"). -- Cheers, Deborahjay (talk) 19:41, 10 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Harvey Milk

I rewrote Harvey Milk bringing it to its current state, which is on its way to GA and eventually to FA. I'm not sure what about the lead you think is lacking, but I don't want to assume you simply templated the article without an explanation on the talk page because it was easier that way. So I invite you to detail your issues with the current lead on the talk page. Thank you. --Moni3 (talk) 20:45, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And it's currently in Peer Review, which would also be a good place for comments. I couldn't find an issue in the lead, either. - Dan Dank55 (send/receive) 20:45, 21 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was impressed with your contribution to the task force. It spelled out a lot of things that people have been slow to look at. May I suggest that you move the whole thing to the project page?

Medicine show - article tone & style

On 24 September 2008, you added the Template:Inappropriate tone to the article Medicine show; however, you did not articulate any concerns on the talk page. Was it just the lead sentence that you found non-encyclopedic? Or did you have other specific concerns? I agree that at the time the article was not well organized, failed to live up to the (implied) promises of the lead, spent a disproportionate amount of space on post-WWII popular culture, and lacked any references. It still needs a fair amount of work; I have really just scratched the surface with my recent edits, but I would welcome, on the talk page, any comments that you might have for improvement. Thanks. --Bejnar (talk) 19:50, 18 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
