Cholula forksEdit

Just in case you're interested, I've forked several articles from the Cholula, Puebla article: San Francisco Acatepec, Santa María Tonantzintla, San Gabriel Convent, and Plaza de la Concordia. I've noted the forks at Talk:Cholula, Puebla and suggested additional trimming to the "Pyramid of Cholula and Nuestra Señora de los Remedios Church" section since there are separate articles about both. None of these articles are ideal, but hopefully they will get the ball rolling on some better standalone articles about seemingly notable topics. Just wanted to share in case you enjoy following along, thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:00, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

  • @Gerda Arendt: Thank you! Much appreciated. Happy New Year.   MX () 18:30, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

A belated thanksEdit

Hey MX! Thanks for the successfully nominating México en la Piel for DYK. I didn't think there was anything in the article that would warrant a DYK and yet you did it. So I just let you know that I saw and am grateful for it! Erick (talk) 23:19, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

  • @Magiciandude: You're very welcome! Thank you for getting the article to GA status. I'll be happy to review more Mexico-related articles you nominate. Cheers, MX () 18:29, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Hmm, does this count as a Mexican-related article to you? I'm just curious since I've nominated it for DYK and GA. Erick (talk) 16:46, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
@Magiciandude: Yes, it does! I saw it at the Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexico/Article alerts page. I started a draft but once I'm done with it I'll get to another GAR. Cheers, MX () 19:33, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Help identifying subjectsEdit

Hello again! These statues are installed outside the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral:

Do you happen to know who the statues depicts?

I also posted a note here asking about a few other statues in Mexico City, if you happen to know. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 19:44, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

  • @Another Believer: Dang it, no idea. I tried looking online by Googling statues at Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral and couldn't find any. MX () 20:32, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Just another FYI, you might enjoy seeing some of the recent updates at Monument to Christopher Columbus (Buenavista, Mexico City) and Monument to Christopher Columbus (Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City). Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:59, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi MX, thank you for your good faith "citation needed" and "unsourced section" edits of the above article.

@Narutolovehinata5: What is there to respond? I cannot approve/disapprove the hook. The "new review" tick is there so I'm sure another editor will get to it eventually. The other hooks have been striked out. Regards, MX () 01:55, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Citation adviceEdit

Hi, thanks for tagging John Leamy (merchant) today. I'm not sure how to resolve the citation-needed tag for "Tusculum Street still runs nearby". Isn't the mere uncontroversial existence of a public street, identified by location, a case of WP:BLUESKY? I could find a Philadelphia street map to cite, of course, but it seems a bit silly. It would be like citing the existence of a book to some outside source, rather than just giving the publication details. What are your thoughts? As for the introductory sentence to the Business section, this is a summary of the section, introducing (per my best effort) no claims not cited below. Kim Post (talk) 02:59, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @Kim Post: Hi, thanks for coming to my talkpage. I'm more on the other side of the perspective, and think we should cite absolute statements of fact whenever made (notwithstanding if they are controversial or not). In the end, an additional source won't hurt. Besides, information on Wikipedia can quickly become outdated, so a source can help readers understand when the information was once relevant or factual (by adding an access date, for example). You are allowed to cite Google Maps or similar websites for specific roads, so feel free to do that.
I've removed the citation request for the Business section. Thanks for clarifying! MX () 03:17, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Alberto Jorge's articleEdit

Thanks for your comment on my submission. I have done as you suggested.

While researching for the footballer's stats (that I copied from both the German and Spanish Wikipedia articles), I realized they were inaccurate or missing for some seasons; thus I had to go on research season by season, since his database profile has been deleted and does not seem to be any archive of it. Also I have added a few other interesting facts to the article such as how much León payed to bring him to Mexican football.

Feel free to check it out. Cheers.--Cocu15 (talk) 02:59, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @Cocu15: Thank you. Nice job with the article. I'm a Toluca fan myself, but I haven't been to the renovated stadium yet since I live far away from the State of Mexico. Do you plan to work on other managers for the team? I noticed a lot of red links at the manager's template.
BTW, I did a few changes at the article, particularly with citation merging and archiving. Please let me know if you have any questions. Happy editing, MX () 14:49, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Cocu15: I'm also happy to review any of your articles if you ever need me. Just drop me a line here or at the article's talkpage. MX () 14:51, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @MX: Actually I am currently working on a list of managers (feel free to check it out if you wish), so, yes, I am planning to work on other coaches' articles as well, I am doing it chronologically backwards - that is why I started with Alberto Jorge. --Cocu15 (talk) 19:34, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Chhota ShakeelEdit

I've been approached by 180.183.219.199 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) about Chhota Shakeel. Same thing you dealt with on the OC project page? Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 12:08, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

  • @Vaselineeeeeeee: Yes. This user keeps wanting to push the fact that Shakeel is dead when in reality there has not been an official statement from India, the U.S., or the Interpol. I initially thought he was right, but as I did more research it seems like the circumstances surrounding his supposed death are mysterious. The sources that claim he's dead do not even address this investigation conducted by India Today. They just claim he's dead, and that's it. I rather not give undue weight to any version. I'm not sure what to do at this point because the user doesn't seem to listen or want to engage in a discussion at the talkpage. MX () 14:17, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
I agree with you. Official sources should be used that are confirmed by the relevant officials before someone should be considered dead. Good work expanding the article by the way. I've added it to my watchlist; I won't actively search if the news is later confirmed, but if another IP adds it later, it'll prompt me to do a quick search to confirm. Regards, Vaselineeeeeeee★★★ 15:23, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Oh no.You guys got it wrong.It is an extremely intricate and complex subject but the fact is that he is no longer alive.The whole of India knows that and Pakistan would never admit that he even existed.Also the rumours began in early 2017 and go to a confirmation point via Intelligence analyst ocnus ( whose paper on Organized crime and politics has been published in many places) only in 2018 and in my opinion that changes the entire story and kills the rumours.But the State will not declare him dead.Since you know and are interested in organized crime-you might know why.There are a lot spelling errors on the article too.You need to analyze the time frames between the Rumours and the Confirmation after which there has been utter silenceClearwater555 (talk) 12:38, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

Rollback grantedEdit

Hi MX. After reviewing your request for "rollbacker", I have enabled rollback on your account. Keep in mind these things when going to use rollback:

  • Getting rollback is no more momentous than installing Twinkle.
  • Rollback should be used to revert clear cases of vandalism only, and not good faith edits.
  • Rollback should never be used to edit war.
  • If abused, rollback rights can be revoked.
  • Use common sense.

If you no longer want rollback, contact me and I'll remove it. Also, for some more information on how to use rollback, see Wikipedia:Administrators' guide/Rollback (even though you're not an admin). I'm sure you'll do great with rollback, but feel free to leave me a message on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of rollback. Thank you for helping to reduce vandalism. Happy editing! TonyBallioni (talk) 05:40, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
