Moves & RedirectsEdit

Hello, Love of Corey,

Please be careful with your page moves and when you change the target of a redirect. Many of your recent edits have had to be reverted. Liz Read! Talk! 03:31, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Using the verb compriseEdit

Your usage of the phrase "comprised of" is grammatically problematic. Please reference the following articles for a better understanding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comprised_of https://www.grammarly.com/blog/comprise-vs-compose/ https://www.businesswritingblog.com/business_writing/2015/01/comprised-of-vs-composed-of-a-test.html https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/can-you-use-comprised-of-grammar Sir.knem (talk) 13:14, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

I noticed that, too, but was waiting for Giraffedata to fix it (it's famously his pet peeve). InedibleHulk (talk) 02:24, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Canada: Confederation or unitary state? re Nova Scotia killingsEdit

Is Canada a confederation of provinces with geographic divisions that mean anything? I would assume that "H" Division is the section of the RCMP responsible for Nova Scotia. – Jwkozak91 (talk) 00:12, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

I don't know anything about that. What I know is that you need to have a source backing that edit. Love of Corey (talk) 00:13, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

ArchiveEdit

Regarding the Main page archive of July 16, 2016: do you understand that an archive is an archive and should NOT be changed, even if an article was moved in the meantime? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:19, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

But what about the redirect links? They need to be corrected. Love of Corey (talk) 21:22, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Re: Your question about number formattingEdit

Hi Love of Corey,

I notice in your edit summary on this edit that you asked if there's a standard for how to write numbers, and the answer is yes, see MOS:NUMERAL. In the case of your edit, it could have been written either way, numerically or in words. For numbers from zero to nine, though, it should be in words. Cheers, ChromeGames923 (talk) 04:51, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

Howdy. As noted there seems to be an MoS standard for everything. The only real rule is you cannot start a sentence with a number set in numerals. ("22 people were killed....") After that it depends on the editor. If a numeral startles my eye when I am reading, I set it in words. I am looking for ease of reading, but that can be a matter of opinion. In any case, keep it as you like and enjoy your day. --''Paul, in Saudi'' (talk) 04:54, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
In my opinion, one to twelve are better as their own words, then things start following a serial pattern with 13, 14, 15...you know the rest. Monotonous orderly stuff like that is for numerals. Especially 777, with its ridiculous number of syllables! InedibleHulk (talk) 09:21, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

2020 Nova Scotia Killers RCMP Rank of Chief Superintendent LeatherEdit

On one of your recent edits, you showed Leather with rank of Superintendent. He is actually a Chief Superintendent which is commonly abbreviated as C/Supt. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Canadian_Mounted_Police Air Java (talk) 01:15, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Invitation to WikiProject Current Events.Edit

Hello. I wanted to invite you to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Current events as you have done edits on Portal:Current events. Most editors aren't aware that the project became active again in April 2020. Just wanted to inform you about that and hope you join. Elijahandskip (talk) 21:53, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

What do I do? Love of Corey (talk) 22:08, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Important NoticesEdit

 This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

You have shown interest in articles about living or recently deceased people, and edits relating to the subject (living or recently deceased) of such biographical articles. Due to past disruption in this topic area, a more stringent set of rules called discretionary sanctions is in effect. Any administrator may impose sanctions on editors who do not strictly follow Wikipedia's policies, or the page-specific restrictions, when making edits related to the topic.

For additional information, please see the guidance on discretionary sanctions and the Arbitration Committee's decision here. If you have any questions, or any doubts regarding what edits are appropriate, you are welcome to discuss them with me or any other editor.
This is a standard message to notify contributors about an administrative ruling in effect. It does not imply that there are any issues with your contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

A community discussion has authorised the use of general sanctions for pages related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The specific details of these sanctions are described here.

Broadly, general sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimise disruption in controversial topic areas. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to these topics that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behaviour, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. An editor can only be sanctioned after he or she has been made aware that general sanctions are in effect. This notification is meant to inform you that sanctions are authorised in these topic areas, which you have been editing. Before continuing to edit pages in these topic areas, please familiarise yourself with the general sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

Do not "fix" redirectsEdit

Please read WP:NOTBROKEN, and stop "fixing" redirects. Thank you, DuncanHill (talk) 22:15, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

  • DuncanHill, thank you. This user's edit history is full of them. Love of Corey, they are as meaningless as those spaces you keep adding. Please stop--it is unnecessary, and especially in high-traffic articles like [[Shooting of Ahmaud Arbery] it is disruptive since it clogs up the history. Drmies (talk) 00:23, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

IncelEdit

Saw your edit summary (???) and figured I'd explain—the visual editor has a nasty habit of inserting empty "recommended" fields in templates like that, it wasn't intentional on my part. Thanks for all your hard work on that article, it's great! GorillaWarfare (talk) 19:27, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Ah, okay. Love of Corey (talk) 19:40, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Please don't drop inaccurate templates on my talk pageEdit

I am not "edit warring". In fact, you took the first step towards edit warring by restoring your preferred version of the article, instead of discussing the disagreement on the talk page, per WP:BRD. I merely restored the WP:Status quo. Now go make a case on the article talk page for your edit, and please don't template me without cause again. Beyond My Ken (talk) 23:05, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

BTW, you've got a lot of warnings nd notices on your talk page for someone who's only been here for a year and 3 months. Perhaps you's be advised to slow down a little, refamiliarize yourself with some of our basic policies, and don't make edits that aren't in line with them. Beyond My Ken (talk) 23:08, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
(1) Learn what the definition of WP:3RR is.
(2) You are banned from posting comments on my talk page, unless, of course, you are required to by Wikipedia policy. If you are required to post a notice on my talk page, please clearly indicate in the edit summary what policy you are doing so under. Any other posted comments will be deleted without being read.
Please note that this ban also applies to pinging me.
I don't have time for shit like yours. Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:08, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

For whatever reason, you do not understand what you are being told here. When you edit a page, please let other editors know what it was you did rather than simply what section you edited.

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited George Floyd protests in Georgia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Georgia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

2020 Reading stabbingEdit

Wikipedia is not a source, but if you wanna be cheeky, here's what the mass murder article says:

"Mass murder is the act of murdering a number of people, typically simultaneously or over a relatively short period of time and in close geographic proximity."

The FBI definition does not apply as this occurred in the United Kingdom, where the FBI does not have jurisdiction. Therefore, three is a number of people, and it evidently happened pretty simultaneously. Buttons0603 (talk) 21:30, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

The FBI defines it as four or more dead, and that's what Wikipedia goes by. Love of Corey (talk) 21:31, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
According to what? John from Idegon (talk) 22:50, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
I have never seen an article about a mass-casualty incident with two or three dead that have been categorized under mass murder or massacre categories. Love of Corey (talk) 22:51, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:June 2020 crimes in EuropeEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:June 2020 crimes in Europe requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Liz Read!

Copying within Wikipedia requires attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from COVID-19 pandemic in the United States into Social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. Please provide attribution for this duplication if it has not already been supplied by another editor, and if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, you should provide attribution for that also. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa (talk) 14:11, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemicEdit

 

The article Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Coat rack article - copies material from COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ---Snowded TALK 04:37, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Splitting articlesEdit

I see you made another split of an article, creating Social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom, and I see no previous discussion and consensus about the splitting. I therefore see the splitting as unfortunate, and I would like to ask you to stop splitting articles without reaching consensus for splitting with key article authors. The relevant policy is Wikipedia:Article size; one of the relevant portions is this: "As browsers have improved, there is no need for haste in splitting an article when it starts getting large. Sometimes an article simply needs to be big to give the subject adequate coverage. If uncertain, or with high profile articles, start a discussion on the talkpage regarding the overall topic structure. Determine whether the topic should be treated as several shorter articles and, if so, how best to organize them. If the discussion makes no progress consider adding one of the split tags in order to get feedback from other editors." --Dan Polansky (talk) 07:10, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

Please look at COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom. A "Very long" template has been on there since May. As far as I know, a WP:BOLD split is fair game. Plus, the social impact article has been up since July 24, and not once did anyone complain about it then. Love of Corey (talk) 08:11, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
The readable prose size of the current revision of COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom is 90 792 bytes. And the policy text I just quoted suggests that splits should not be bold. --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:20, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
It's a notable, distinct topic that should be on its own and not be dedicated to a significant portion of the main COVID-19 article. Love of Corey (talk) 08:31, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Plus, I'll repeat myself: no one complained the moment I split the article off. Both articles have been edited many times since then, and I hadn't heard one peep from any dissenters from July 24 to now. You are the only one who's raised an objection to it. Love of Corey (talk) 08:32, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
I just quoted you a guideline (Wikipedia:Article size) and hope that you will abide by it in future. --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:35, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
And I just pointed out a "Very long" template in the UK article and hope you will do something to address it. Love of Corey (talk) 08:36, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Hello? Are you going to respond? Love of Corey (talk) 08:37, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Hello? Love of Corey (talk) 08:38, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
That's what I thought. Love of Corey (talk) 08:39, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Anyone can put an inapplicable template into an article; as pointed out above, the article has 90 792 bytes of readable prose and it can even be much longer per Wikipedia:Article size if justified by content requirements. (I have noticed the curious impatience above, expecting me to respond within a minute; I don't know what to think about it.) --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:42, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
No, it shouldn't. We must make articles as comfortable and navigable as possible. Love of Corey (talk) 08:43, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Still doesn't explain why you seem to be the only one making a huge deal about this. Everyone else seems to be very cool with it. Love of Corey (talk) 08:44, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
The fact that you haven't even removed the template tells me it's not as inapplicable as you claim. Love of Corey (talk) 08:46, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
That's what I thought. :) Love of Corey (talk) 08:47, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
(outdent) Frankly, anyone who shows the above level of patience should not be doing any splits at all, in my view. Structural edits should be made only after careful, slow deliberation, by editors patient enough to carefully read and apply Wikipedia:Article size. --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:50, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
WP:IDONTLIKEIT much? Love of Corey (talk) 08:50, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Also, you're clearly deflecting. How is it that you're the only one to complain after weeks of silence from other editors following the split? Very suspicious considering it comes just as you're trying to get the Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic article deleted but the AfD isn't currently going your way. Love of Corey (talk) 08:52, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic is the same story, a split created in violation of Wikipedia:Article size. It is true enough that multiple users in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic did not realize as much, but that does not make the violation of Wikipedia:Article size claim invalid. If there was a discussion before the split was made, the split would never gain consensus, as apparent from Talk:COVID-19 pandemic in Sweden#RfC: Splitting content on government response to separate article. The result is that the time of actual content contributors was wasted. --Dan Polansky (talk) 09:01, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
This pandemic is the story of the century and you're trying to minimize and censor valuable content. Gotta love deniers. Love of Corey (talk) 09:05, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Every angle to this story is important. No detail should be wasted. Love of Corey (talk) 09:07, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Also, I'll repeat myself: "How is it that you're the only one to complain after weeks of silence from other editors following the split?" Love of Corey (talk) 09:09, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
That's what I thought. :D Love of Corey (talk) 09:12, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
As for the RfC, the only people to comment on there were mostly the only people to vote to delete on the AfD, including yourself. The only two to not participate in the AfD were bladjur and an unsigned user. That's not really a fair comparison to make, nor an accurate picture of what the community consensus would've been for a split. Love of Corey (talk) 09:15, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
(Outdent) This increasingly looks like a waste of time, but anyway: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Swedish government response to the COVID-19 pandemic does not show consensus for the split: there are 5 keeps and 3 deletes, and from reading the keep comments, they are uninformed and do not reflect on the violation of Wikipedia:Article size. In the RFC, additional votes against split are from Blådjur and David A. As I said, there would have been no consensus for the split: there is no consensus in the RFC, and there is not even consensus for the split in the AfD since by the conventional 2/3-supermajority, 5:3 for split is not a consensus. --Dan Polansky (talk) 09:30, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Since you're not going to address other points I've been trying to make, I'm going to ask that you leave me alone now. Good night. Love of Corey (talk) 09:33, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot revertEdit

Hello, I noticed your revert of my edit on Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot with the edit summary "More accurate. This was a criminal act." However, per the sources I cited (Vox article and BBC article) and other general research I conducted (happy to pull the links again) entering the Michigan capital with firearms is legal (to quote "Michigan is an open-carry state, and people are allowed to openly carry inside the state Capitol" (Vox) and "It is legal to bear firearms inside the statehouse" (BBC)). In sum, while the kidnapping plot is clearly illegal, simply entering the Michigan capital with firearms is perfectly legal under that state's laws and is not a criminal act. Further, as I mentioned in my edit summary, we generally try to avoid using loaded terminology/labels unless widely sourced. In this case, both of the news articles I cited use the term "entered" instead of "stormed" and as "stormed" has a strong, usually negative, connotation given the lack of use of "stormed" in the sources I saw I went with the more neutral "entered" (as is used in the sources I cited) to not unduly insert a point of view into the article and to be consistent with our main articles on the protests (both of which use the more neutral term "entered"). Based on all this, my inclination remains that "entered" is the correct term to use here (though I am also happy to ask for a third opinion here and to open the discussion up more broadly). Finally, as you likely saw, I swapped the word "entered" in to replace a well explained/reasoned edit by an anonymous editor which you reverted with no explanation. As a general note going forward, it is generally advisable to explain when reverting a non-vandalism edit so editors can understand your rationale and discuss the changes (as we are doing here). Thanks, Mifter (talk) 21:37, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I wanted to follow-up on this so we can either agree on an approach for the article or involve additional editors to come to a consensus on how the article should read. Thanks, Mifter (talk) 03:35, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Murders, Islamists and English sourcesEdit

Hi,

Thanks for your welcome. Unfortunately, I don't think that I would be a regular member, since I created an account to narrow the islamist vandalism but it seemingly is a lost cause. You can't exchange with people who are triggered by a simple picture and refuse to admit that other people can have a different opinion on the matter. Plus, I'm concerned by the use of English sources, which are utterly biased on the questions of racism and religion. Those sources blend ethnicity, skin color and religion, which is exactly why the contribute to diffuse lies and lack of understanding on certain subjects. I saw articles on CNN, NY Times and others that show a total lack of neutrality and comprehension. Since this wiki use essentially English sources, there is no way articles on the murder of Samuel Paty would be covered correctly, as it is just a pretext to slam a "laïcité" they do not understand, and to diffuse (perhaps unwittingly) islamists ideas. It is difficult to explain that, no, muslims do not have less rights in France, no there is no official islamophobia, but yes, as everywhere there are racist and intolerant jerks, including muslims, Arabs, Chechens, Europeans, Asians, etc). Frankly, I'm a little scared by how those pages are systematically raided and how English medias view all this. Hopefully I also saw reasonable people, trying to maintain neutrality.Passant67 (talk) 09:01, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Uhhhhh...okay...? Love of Corey (talk) 10:41, 1 November 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I thought your welcome was a reaction to the debates over the article of the Murder of Samuel Paty and was willing to explain why it is complicated. Didn't want to cause problem. Forget that. Passant67 (talk) 12:19, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Alert from WikiProject Current EventsEdit

Hello. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Current events format is currently being updated. However, one new change is a section for "Current discussions". The Portal:Current events has debates all the time to determine if things are notable for the portal (international news) or if they are better suited for a place like 2020 in the United States. In the past, small 'edit wars' have taken place between editors over topics. This new section on the WikiProject is a new place where editors can discuss between each other and have an easy access to 'outside opinion' from other participates. Members in the Current Event WikiProject are welcome to invite other editors that have disagreements to start the discussion on the WikiProject. (Unlike RFC's, discussions about topics would be about 1 week or whenever the topic is no longer relevant from the WikiProject).

Thank you for reading and thank you for participating in the Current Event WikiProject! (Current Event WikiProject Coordinator) Elijahandskip (talk) 19:13, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Cleaning upEdit

Links broken by capitalizationEdit

Regard this edit and similar edits, if you're going to change the capitalization of headings — such as "Georgia (Special)" to "Georgia (special)," a lot of links are broken because they are sensitive to capitalization.

ElectionsEdit

Regarding your edit here, thank you for adding data on the recent election! Assuming you'll be adding more, I'd like to suggest some minor formatting methods: "Incumbent" is capitalized in these boxes and does not need linking, the parties can use "US" in the name instead of "United States" for better template-matching; please leave a space between the bar "|" and the parameter, as in, | percentage instead of |percentage so editors can read it more easily. All of this makes the page easier to read and easier to edit. Keep up the great work!GoldRingChip 22:32, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

You're welcome. Love of Corey (talk) 22:40, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

New draft started relating to an article you worked onEdit

Hello. I saw you added information to Impeachment resolution against Gretchen Whitmer. I have recently started Draft:Impeachment resolution against Mike DeWine as the articles of impeachment were announced today.

Timeline_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_in_the_United_StatesEdit

I saw a massive change (not by you) to the page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_in_the_United_States) made a little while back that resulted in a great loss of information. I see that you had some intermediate changes that you may want to take a look at re-inserting. I have not reviewed your edits or citations, but am assuming in good faith that they were of value, and wanted to give you the opportunity to re-make them with the restored version of the page/article. One thing I would note is my entry on the talk page, where I mention that one of your edits of case count date incorrectly uses a cited article's publication date as the date of the increase in case-count. While using news articles for citation is certainly acceptable in many cases, keep in mind that, especially in the case of your cited article, which was published at 4am and written the day before, publication date does not necessarily equal event date. Thank you for your edits. GtoTheCizzay (talk) 15:39, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

A reminderEdit

Your recent editing history at COVID-19 pandemic in the United States shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Love of Corey, yesterday you removed a paragraph with the edit summary "I agree that this doesn't really belong here. It should ideally go to Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on politics#United States." Today I restored a fraction of that text with the edit summary "Undid. Politics impact on Covid in Bemidji. Not about Covid impact on politics." What I meant by that is that the paragraph said the opposite of what you said you removed it for. -SusanLesch (talk) 00:40, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

I agree with the original rationale that the information is politically-motivated and can offer no substantial contribution in the article's context. Love of Corey (talk) 00:43, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
I don't. Please follow up on the article's talk page. -SusanLesch (talk) 01:13, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Love of Corey (talk) 01:19, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Hidden in notesEdit

For edits such as this, I suggest that it is better suited to put the non-existent or WP:SELFRED links in <!-- notes --> so future editors can use them when appropriate. —GoldRingChip 02:11, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Can you clarify how to do that? Love of Corey (talk) 02:13, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Yes… I just did it here. Does that help? —GoldRingChip 02:14, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the clarification! Love of Corey (talk) 02:14, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

December 2020Edit

  Hello. I have noticed that you often edit without using an edit summary. Please do your best to always fill in the summary field. This helps your fellow editors use their time more productively, rather than spending it unnecessarily scrutinizing and verifying your work. Even a short summary is better than no summary, and summaries are particularly important for large, complex, or potentially controversial edits. Thanks!   Aloha27  talk  16:45, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Seconded. Love of Corey, even if your edits themselves are decent, the lack of an edit summary is pretty disruptive for other editors. Please don't be that guy. Thanks, Zazpot (talk) 07:05, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Matt GaetzEdit

Hello! I noticed you inserted this edit into the Matt Gaetz article: [2]. While I share your concerns, none of the sources you provided actually directly mention Gaetz. As such, you edit is comprised of original research and synthesis. Additionally, the edit is far too long and it seems rather undue for the article since this was a very recent event and Gaetz was not a major individual in the lawsuit (see: WP:NOTNEWS & WP:RECENTISM for more information). Would you mind self-reverting yourself? Afterwards, we can try to find a source that directly mentions Gaetz and we can attempt to summarize the article in about two sentences. Would that be acceptable? Dr.Swag Lord, Ph.d (talk) 08:08, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

I've self-reverted, but we shouldn't summarize in two sentences. It's very noteworthy if Gaetz and hundreds of other Representatives are unseated because of their actions. We must reflect as such. Love of Corey (talk) 08:11, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
@Love of Corey: I really appreciate your self-revert! The problem is that the article is about Matt Gaetz. If readers want to learn more about the lawsuit, we have a article for that as well: Texas v. Pennsylvania. What is Gaetz's exact role in the case? At the moment, it seems that Gaetz (and other Representatives) merely signed on to an amicus brief. In effect, Gatez was not a major contributor to the case. By signing on to the brief, he signaled that he supported the case. Dr.Swag Lord, Ph.d (talk) 08:18, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
But he was in danger of being unseated because of it, and there are sources indicating this. That MUST be mentioned. Love of Corey (talk) 08:19, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Would you mind providing me the source you're referring to? Dr.Swag Lord, Ph.d (talk) 08:21, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
[3] :) Love of Corey (talk) 08:23, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the source. It seems as though Bill Pascrell, a Democrat, is "urging" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to refuse to seat the Republicans who support the case. In reality, the chances of Nancy Pelosi refusing to seat over 120 duly-elected members of Congress is very, very low. I don't believe such an event has ever occured. You and I could also send a letter to Nancy Pelosi asking her to give us $1 million, but, again, the chances of that happening is also very, very low. Additionally at his time, according to your source, Nancy Pelosi has made no indication that she will actually do what Pascrell is asking. We typically refrain from speculation here at Wiki. However, if in the future Nancy Pelosi does indeed refuse to seat those 120 Republicans, then we can definitely include it in the article. --Dr.Swag Lord, Ph.d (talk) 08:39, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

  Hello! Welcome to Wikipedia, and thank you for your contributions. At least one of your edits on the page 2020_Nova_Scotia_attacks, while it may have been in good faith, was difficult to distinguish from vandalism. To help other editors understand the reason for the changes, you can use an edit summary for your contributions. You can also take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia.

Unreliable sources?Edit

Re; your summary for the diff here. I am puzzled by your summary. CBC, Global and National Post are all as reliable a source as there can be, Regards,   Aloha27  talk  02:33, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Did you unintentionally link to a different diff? I'm not seeing any differences on my end when I access the diff. Love of Corey (talk) 02:34, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
Fixerated.   Aloha27  talk  02:37, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. Anyway, as I mentioned here, the content included was already mentioned elsewhere in the article (including the same section, might I add), so I didn't see it fit to repeat it. Also, the IP user adding the material was using unreliable sources (gun blogs), and their writing style was potentially WP:POV, so I saw the material as wholly problematic. I tried writing a compromise, since I reevaluated some of the material and did see it as notable, but evidently the IP user wasn't having it. I've been attempting to warn this IP against this kind of writing, but it doesn't sound like the IP is interested in listening. Does this clear things up? Love of Corey (talk) 02:43, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
Then THAT should have been the summary used, not the claim that the sources were not reliable. Regards,   Aloha27  talk  02:53, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
I did come to use that edit summary, though. Love of Corey (talk) 02:55, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Texas V PennsylvaniaEdit

Hello I have a few questions about the Texas v Pennsylvania sub headings that you put down particularly around Nancy Pelosi and Bill Pascrell's statements. Also I removed the Pascrell information that you stated on outgoing members since they were not going to be seated regardless of what might have taken place due to retirements or having already lost reelection. However I still remain conflicted about the statements you put on the pages. Since Wikipedia is meant to remain neutral in terms of political events I would kindly ask to explain to me what about the statements is neutral? Wollers14 (talk) 02:13, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

It's pretty historic that all these Representatives were under threat of expulsion. Love of Corey (talk) 06:58, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I understand that argument which is fair but I fail to understand why Pelosi and Pascrell's statements are needed as the members who are challenging them were seated anyways in the 117th Congress. People can draw conclusions if only their support for the case is indicated but the statements from Pelosi and Pascrell whom are politicians of one party onto politicians. However I think that these statements can be removed and say that the members were threatened with expulsion by the Speaker. This I believe will show neutrality to the subject.

February 2021Edit

  Please refrain from abusing warning or blocking templates. Doing so is a violation of Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Please use the user warnings sandbox for any tests you may want to do, or take a look at our introduction page to learn more about contributing to the encyclopedia. Thank you. Pointing out that a deletion argument is not grounded in policy is obviously not an AGF violation. Pointing out that an argument is inconsistent with existing practice is clearly not an AGF violation. Pointing out that a claim is not an accurate representation of existing facts is unquestionably not an AGF violation violation. Leaving a false AGF accusation against another editor who disputes positions you hold in a Wikipedia discussion is often an AGF violation, and is almost always a form of WP:HARASSMENT.

Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong! (talk) 02:35, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

But you don't really explain why the article should be kept, from a policy-based perspective, and claim the AfDs were borne out of an WP:IDONTLIKEIT attitude, which is patently false given the references to WP:SPLIT and WP:GNG. Then, you just go on a tangent on how it makes "Wikipedia look ridiculous", not to mention the WP:SLIPPERYSLOPE argument you presented. And let's not forget how you just lazily copy-and-paste the same argument for every AfD KingSkyLord posted for a congressional race. So yeah, that template was appropriate. Love of Corey (talk) 04:33, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
Which has exactly nothing to do with assuming good faith, of course. Nor does using the same keep rationale in response to a set of virtually verbatim-copied nomination statements. And if you had actually read my keep rationale, you'd have seen that I didn't cite or mention WP:IDONTLIKEIT. You really should stick to reality-based arguments.

COVID-19 pandemic in the United StatesEdit

I made a few minor changes, including - fixing grammar - removing opinion statements about partisan politics which I considered not consistent with Wikipedia policies. Why did you revert them? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kmwittko (talkcontribs) 05:53, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

The statements about Trump are most certainly true, since he's consistently downplayed the scale and severity of the pandemic. Love of Corey (talk) 06:04, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Conversion of tables to lists in election articlesEdit

Hey Love of Corey, I noticed that you've been changing tables to lists in election articles. I don't believe there is a single format election articles must use, but tables make this information easier to read and sort out, and they include images. These tables aren't recent changes, and they've been in the articles for a while. In addition, you say that other articles don't do this. However, you made this same change on 16 articles, so you're kind of contributing to that. If you think they should be left as lists, you should use the talk page. Let me know what you think. Shadowrvn728 ❯❯❯ Talk 17:09, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

It's quite clear that this is only being applied to upcoming elections being held in 2021 and 2022, though. If we're going to keep the tables, we need to apply those to pre-2021 election articles too to maintain consistency. Love of Corey (talk) 23:02, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
I don’t think there’s a need to make them all the same. Articles don’t have to all be the same, and it would be a waste of time to go back and change them all. Shadowrvn728 ❯❯❯ Talk 23:08, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Why are presidential election articles structured the same, then? Love of Corey (talk) 23:09, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
There are hundreds of election articles. Making them all the same is unnecessary. There is only a presidential election article for every four years, so it makes it easier to be consistent in format. Other elections don’t have to follow a single format, and tables present information better than lists. Shadowrvn728 ❯❯❯ Talk 23:12, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
If tables present information better than lists, why is this only being applied to upcoming elections being held in 2021 and 2022? The user who's been adding them hasn't been making an effort to apply them to past articles too, and they're the only one who's been advocating for their inclusion. Love of Corey (talk) 23:14, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Love of Corey, I see you have now undone many of Shadowrvn728's, Dmoore5556's and PJRoRo's reversions of your edits while this discussion is going on, in violation of the principle of WP:BRD. I believe you are doing this to illustrate a point. I am requesting that you undo your edits until the discussion you were striving for has completed, and wait until a consensus is reached. AllegedlyHuman (talk) 23:25, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Fine, I give up. It's going to be hard applying all those tables to all those other election articles. :'( Love of Corey (talk) 23:29, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

2021 Boston mayoral electionEdit

Hi, content that you removed at 2021 Boston mayoral election was properly sourced. From the edit comments made, I gather that you did not like the formatting and style that the information was presented in. Where, if anywhere, has a consensus been reach on what a "presidential" format is; and where, if anywhere, has a consensus been reach on restricting the use of such formatting to presidential elections? Thanks. Dmoore5556 (talk) 23:14, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

I did not remove any sources to my knowledge though. Just the table. What sources have I removed? Also, yes, the table was uncalled for and should've been consulted with the community first. Love of Corey (talk) 23:16, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for replying. Your response indicates that a) no consensus has been reached on defining a specific "presidential" format, and b) no consensus has been reached on restricting the use of such format. If either of those statements are incorrect, please provide a link to discussions where such as consensus was reached. Lacking demonstrable consensus on the prior two items, continued reverting (direct or indirect) on the part of on editor (you or others) of such content is WP:OWN. Please discontinue such reverting. Thank you. Dmoore5556 (talk) 23:24, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
I did not say any consensus was reached for those two topics. But there was no consensus developed on the inclusion of those tables beforehand either. But I digress. Love of Corey (talk) 23:29, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

DudeEdit

idk what you have against photo tables, but my god you are going to a lot of effort to nuke something for literally no reason. Also super cool how you demand that everyone else get consensus for literally every change but you feel no need to get consensus before removing all the photo tables (even though there was some consensus to have the photo tables before you crowned yourself king of the universe and banished them from existence). Super funny that you even tried removing the photo table from 2021 Boston mayoral election even though literally every other Boston mayoral election page since 2009 has had them. >:( :O :) :( :P stop using cutesy emoticons my guy, they don't make you seem any better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BottleOfChocolateMilk (talkcontribs) 02:41, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

I don't have anything against photo tables, but you should've gone through with the community first about this new policy. And screw you; I didn't bother to check the prior Boston mayoral election articles. I didn't think they'd have them based on my experiences with the other past election articles. Love of Corey (talk) 04:07, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
He never said there was a new policy, but the edits you were making were going backwards, undoing other editors' work. You also made big changes to many articles without "going through the community". You claimed that no other election articles used tables, but then said you didn't bother to check. Please just leave the tables alone, there's no need to change them to a list format. Shadowrvn728 ❯❯❯ Talk 17:56, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

March 2021Edit

Your recent editing history at 2021 Boston mayoral election shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.   Aloha27  talk  18:06, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

2021 Boulder ReactionEdit

Thanks for the editing. I rarely do much with Wikipedia, and suspect we're chalk and cheese on views, but regardless your paragraph changes made things smoother and more accurate - perpetrator=/=suspect. 人族 (talk) 08:47, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

You're welcome? Love of Corey (talk) 08:48, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Doh it was fine and then you broke it again. The MSN piece is not a Conservative source, the current Wikipedia text is thus untrue. 人族 (talk) 09:13, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
(Oh and chronologically the liberal reaction comes between the YouTube stream (relevancy???) and post-event gun control discussions.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 人族 (talkcontribs) 09:14, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
I did not remove the MSN source; someone else did. Also, I believe the reactions section should be categorized based on relevancy, not chronology. I will continue to reorganize it. Love of Corey (talk) 09:16, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
KK. I think chronological - where obvious, makes more sense. Didn't realise the MSN\Newsweek (I think?) piece had dropped out - there's been a score or more changes in the last couple of hours, and only the first few were mine. I might suggest tweaking the tense\grammar a bit but given the headache it's been to get it to this stage I'll go softly softly for a couple of days, then draft a suggestion in Talk!!! 人族 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 09:28, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

April 2021Edit

  Welcome to Wikipedia. Editors are expected to treat each other with respect and civility. On this encyclopedia project, editors assume good faith while interacting with other editors. Here is Wikipedia's welcome page, and it is hoped that you will assume the good faith of other editors and continue to help us improve Wikipedia! Ben ❯❯❯ Talk 03:03, 3 April 2021 (UTC)

  Constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, but a recent edit that you made to User talk:2601:C0:D:A1E3:709E:3294:366B:9C07 has been reverted or removed because it was a misuse of a warning or blocking template. Please use the user warnings sandbox for any tests you may want to do, or take a look at our introduction page to learn more about contributing to the encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Ben ❯❯❯ Talk 07:15, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

  Please remember to assume good faith when dealing with other editors. Ben ❯❯❯ Talk 07:16, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

Where have I failed to assume good faith? The edit in question was evidently spam. Love of Corey (talk) 07:18, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
New editors may not be familiar with the policies and guidelines of Wikipedia. Even for things like promotion, we have level 1 warnings for a reason. They are also more specific than warnings like disruptive editing where it does not include details of the guidelines or policies that were violated.
(Assuming good faith) They could have seen an edit of yours and wanted to talk to you about it over email, or saw an edit you made related to what they did and thought you might be interested but not have known it violated a police. As far as I'm aware, asking someone to email you isn't a policy violation (in fact, you can send emails to editors if they have it enabled), but the email in question appeared a bit promotional.

COVID-19 at the University of Notre DameEdit

Hi there! I noticed that you had moved the COVID-19 at the University of Notre Dame page to University of Notre Dame COVID-19 outbreak. I don't think that the move was an improved title (the only other article I could easily find regarding COVID-19 at a university is titled University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is about Illinois' response to the pandemic. I think a descriptive title along the lines of COVID-19 pandemic at the University of Notre Dame might also be acceptable, though I think the scope of the article is broader than that of the UIUC article (as well as the White House COVID-19 outbreak cited in the move you had made). I'm leaving this so we don't wind up moving a bunch of times and so that we could flesh out a firm title before moving the page. — Mikehawk10 (talk) 05:21, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

This is less about the title's descriptiveness and more about standardization, considering a vast majority of the articles on the COVID-19 pandemic have, well, "COVID-19 pandemic" in the title. And I personally think "COVID-19 pandemic" can refer to a lot of things outside of the actual pandemic at this point, including certain responses. But now that you mention title descriptiveness and looking at your article, I do think a title like University of Notre Dame response to the COVID-19 pandemic would be more accurate to use since the article predominantly covers the university's controversial handling of COVID-19 over outbreaks at the school itself. Love of Corey (talk) 05:33, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Personal commentaryEdit

Please don't add personal commentary to articles, as you did at Greene County, Alabama, even if it's true.

Please take a moment to read MOS:WTW. Thank you. Magnolia677 (talk) 09:40, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

May 2021Edit

  Please don't change the format of dates, as you did to List of companies that halted political contributions in January 2021. As a general rule, if an article has evolved using predominantly one format, the dates should be left in the format they were originally written in, unless there are reasons for changing it based on strong national ties to the topic. Please also note that Wikipedia does not use ordinal suffixes (e.g., st, nd, th), articles, or leading zeros on dates.

For more information about how dates should be written on Wikipedia, please see this page.

If you have any questions about this, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Enjoy your time on Wikipedia. I saw another editor placed another higher warning template that may have been the wrong one, as it looks like an intentional edit. Ben ❯❯❯ Talk 21:59, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Thought the edit was a test, but on closer look, not, so your edit does not seem out of order after all. However, in future you may want to use a more descriptive edit summary than "=". Dl2000 (talk) 23:12, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Votes on riot commission - editsEdit

Hi there. I'm not in any way trying to give you a hard time, but you and I have been working to accomplish the same thing... update "tenure" and other appropriate sections to reflect those 35 "R"s who supported the establishment of a commission to investigate the 1/6 Capitol riot. It's info that would probably be of interest to many of those WP readers who look at the articles. You've made a mistake, not the end of the world or anything, but not "all" Democrats voted to support the establishment of the Commission. One was absent (as were 2 "R"s). So I've changed your words, adding ...Democrats "present," in a few articles that I was intending to edit, only to reflect that correct number. Also, when you're pasting text into articles, you need to show the actual posting date, GMT or whatever they call it. So that should reflect the actual date in London at the time you make the posting. You've been posting on the 20th, but showing that you're doing so on the 19th. You should be careful in the future to get the date correct. If some nitpicker doesn't like your posts, they're likely to make a big deal of it. also, I posted a couple of other cites in those articles I edited, the Washington Post because it had a fuller story than CNN, which cite I retained, and the actual roll call, if anyone is looking for that, so they can i.e. look at the states represented, etc. Again, I appreciate your work, and this is just a heads up. Activist (talk) 18:02, 20 May 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, my bad about that. Also, I live in the West Coast of the U.S., which is why my edits are being posted on the 19th. Love of Corey (talk) 04:00, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Santa Clara VTA shootingEdit

Can you provide a reason why you removed references to the shooting from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority light rail and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority articles? TheGGoose (talk) 18:49, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Not the appropriate places to put them. I've put them in History of San Jose, California and Timeline of San Jose, California. Love of Corey (talk) 18:51, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

SpacingEdit

Go to any page and create a new section, as I did here. Notice that when it is created, there is a space after the heading. There are several editors that will do this automatically, but in the standard editor, which is the one most use, space can be added or removed. There is no need to remove correct spacing. Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:17, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

All of the pages I've visited never contain any of this "spacing". I don't see how this is considered standard. Love of Corey (talk) 23:23, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

Reversion of "WP:RS"Edit

Before you revert citations for being WP:RS, I suggest you do some research. The citation: Greenwald, Glenn (14 June 2021). "The Enduring False Narrative of the Pulse Nightclub Massacre". Scheerpost. Retrieved 15 June 2021. names Scheerpost (see Robert Scheer) as the source, Glenn Greenwald as the author. Both are impeccable US journalism sources. Thank you. Seligne (talk) 01:27, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Not really, considering Greenwald is a highly controversial figure. Love of Corey (talk) 21:36, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Subcategory editsEdit

Your category reverts to Nationals Park shooting, Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack and Wakefield standoff for example are not appropriate. Your edit summary here is, frankly, preposterous, and without basis in policy. That incorrect and imprecise information exists on some pages is not an excuse to introduce such information on other pages. Articles should be placed into the most specific categories in which they belong. Category:May 2021 crimes in the United States for example is a subcategory of Category:2021 crimes in the United States. One is not an excepting non-diffusing subcategory.

I see on this page that you have given the "I've seen it elsewhere" reasoning before, that you have a substantial amount of warnings and notices about your problematic editing, and that you've been given advice to slow down and re-familiarize yourself with policy. Did you take that advice? DoubleCross () 15:11, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
