T-Mobile, Sprint and Dish NetworkEdit


I have been the one editing the T-Mobile, Sprint and Dish Network pages. I thought that the merger was completed.

I have one question though is Sprint now dissolved and can we put July 26, 2019 in the dissolved box ?

Here are the edits so far,

1. The subsidiaries of Sprint now belong to Dish Network. Boost Mobile Virgin Mobile USA Open Mobile

2. I went to each page and cited that the owner has changed. [1]

3. I then went to T-Mobile page and put Sprint as a division. (talk) 18:06, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

No, today was just a regulatory approval, with conditions . The actual sales are not yet complete. Sprint still exists, is not yet owned by T-Mobile, and have not sold Boost or Virgin to Dish yet. Be patient, and don't rush, which leads to incorrect articles. oknazevad (talk) 21:26, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

All completely understandable. (talk) 18:06, 28 July 2019 (UTC)


Hi Oknazevad. I agree that there may be some problems with the revision you undid, but as I mentioned, this is an instance of WP:BABY, meaning by undoing the revision, you removed some aspects of the revision which were not problematic. Could you please go back and consider directly which parts of the revision were, to your mind, incorrect, and which parts were not, and manually edit those pieces? Also, I was in the process of fixing the revision myself and adding some references, but you undid my reversion so quickly I had no time to complete my task. If you revert someone's contribution, and someone else comes along and reverts it back, consider how it appears to immediately revert it a third time yourself. Respectfully, PhobosIkaros 23:15, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

The problem is none of the three parts of the edit are worth keeping. The infobox does not support a theme song parameter (and it would be misformatted anyway), the parenthetical on the one driver's name is unneeded and unexplained, and the third part of the edit was incorrect info that broke a citation. It was unsalvagable.
Also, I'd just like to point out in your subsequent edit that you used IMDb as a source. IMDb is not considered a reliable source as it's user-generated content. A different source would be better. oknazevad (talk) 15:33, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Okay, Oknazevad. I understand your perspective and respect your editing choice. --PhobosIkaros 14:43, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Canadian Armed Forces ranks and insignia modificationEdit

Hi Oknazevad,

I don't know why you removed the color section of the officer ranks on This is an official layout, and as being member of the Canadian Armed Forces, I do confirm that they in fact exist. Publications aren't available for public release.

The system is based on the British one since 2016. I added this section since there is nothing public that explains those colors;

Thanks for your understanding.

Well, an email isn't exactly the best source. I tagged it as such. It's also not appropriate to include the entire text of an email in a ref. oknazevad (talk) 22:41, 9 August 2019 (UTC)

List of Sesame Street Muppets revisionEdit

Oknazevad, re: this revision diff: The source in question, while it is a primary source as you state, no longer exists; see here. Well, actually, the link goes to a general webpage in Sesame, as do many of the old character descriptions and puppeteer bios, which the SW removed as they're continually improved their website. I've been methodically going through this list and updating it, and as you can see here, I have been using the SW website, as well as several other websites, as primary sources where there's no other support for the list entries. Of course, if you had visited those links, perhaps you would've seen that. Also, your revision broke the link to SW's bio of Jennifer Barnhart, so could you fix that, please? Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 18:15, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

Then the solution is to use archive links from the internet archive, not remove the material outright. oknazevad (talk) 22:32, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
I've found, for most of the SW links in this article, that no archive links exist. It doesn't mean that we can't re-add the material once reliable sources are found. This is a FL, with strict adherence to WP:RS. The broken links and outdated content are why it shouldn't be a FL any longer, and cutting material that no longer has RS is the way to improve its quality to previous standards. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 03:09, 19 August 2019 (UTC)


All due respect, but USA ain't paying $50 million a year for a "developmental" brand. plus WWE flat out called NXT their third global brand alongside Raw and SD. NXT is now a big boy brand, there's no 2 ways around it.

Vjmlhds (talk) 18:44, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Still not equal to Raw and SmackDown. Please discuss at the wikiproject. Changes like that need broad consensus, and a lot of buy-in from many participants, not the unilateral change of one person. oknazevad (talk) 18:45, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Not equal according to who? You? If the actual company that owns it calls it equal (essentially), then why is it even an issue? Vjmlhds (talk) 18:50, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
Parroting company line is promotional and a violation of NPOV. It's a significant issue in pro wrestling articles. oknazevad (talk) 19:34, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
The vast majority of Vjmlhds's edits did not call NXT equal to Raw. They stated it started as developmental and are not a global touring brand. Stating that is not incorrect, and the sourcing supports it. Any changes saying its a 3rd major brand definitely need to be discussed, but I see nothing wrong with just stating what the sources clearly state. - Galatz גאליץשיחה Talk 19:07, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
But his edits did plainly elevate NXT to equal to Raw. That's what I have issues with. oknazevad (talk) 19:34, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
This revert [1] did not say it was equal to. Plus you removed other info too - Galatz גאליץשיחה Talk 19:42, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you Galatz for backing me up. I have since added a reference from CBS Sports (a reliable source) that calls NXT WWE's third major brand, so it ain't just WWE tooting it's own horn, or me just blindly echoing them. Vjmlhds (talk) 20:36, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

NWA historyEdit

The Nwa was a part of Impact Wrestling in the early 2000's it was originally called NWA TNA using both worlds and tag team championships you should allow this into the NWA page — Preceding unsigned comment added by Howieman43 (talkcontribs) 23:15, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

I am well aware of the history, being I watched it happen. The NWA article already covers this. Do not copy entire sections from one article to another like that! Stop your useless edits or you will be blocked for gross incompetence. oknazevad (talk) 01:34, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Corn (wheat) vs Corn (Maize)Edit

Whiskey is grain-based. It is either made with Rye (Rye Liquor) or Wheat ("Corn" Liquor, a designation dating back to Colonial times). Hotspur23 (talk) 19:43, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Absolutely not. Bourbon is made with corn/maize. Period. And you ignore malt whiskey, which is made from barley. Maybe you should actually read the references instead of introducing easily disproven errors. You clearly lack competence in the subject matter and absolutely must stop editing in the area or I will pursue a topic ban for gross incompetence. oknazevad (talk) 01:34, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to remove speedy deletion notices from pages you created yourself, you may be blocked from editing. — JJMC89(T·C) 05:06, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Please stop spuriously tagging files with speedy deletion notices based on your sole opinion of policy. I, to put it bluntly, dispute your interpretation, and do believe these files meet the non-free content use criteria based on their use as the primary means of identification of the differing editions of the game, which is the exact subject of the article in question. In short, you cannot single-handedly dictate their deletion. Clearly there's a difference of opinion here, and I desire that we find an appropriate forum to solicit additional opinions. If there's consensus that my interpretation is inappropriate, I will not object, but I don't like the idea of one editor declaring only his interpretation valid. oknazevad (talk) 05:11, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

See AlsoEdit

There is no point to include no related titles with the original world title. Even if are world titles, are 100 years appart, like ROH and AEW. "One purpose of "See also" links is to enable readers to explore tangentially related topics; however, articles linked should be related to the topic of the article." IWGP, ROH, WWE Universal and AEW titles are no related in any way with the original world championship, so there is no point to include them in an article. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 11:56, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I disagree that they are unrelated as topics. I think you're getting hung up on the idea that "related" here means "claims lineage from". That's not what that means, as that guideline is for all articles, not just wrestling related ones. They're still related in that they're widely recognized world heavyweight championships in the generic sense. That's exactly the sort of "similar but nut directly derived" thing see also sections are meant to include. oknazevad (talk) 12:04, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
It's a very vague relationship, like including Nick Mondo in Undertaker's article just because "are pro wrestlers". Are 100 years appart, promotions are no related. The titles has no relationship with the article, there is no place for them in the see also section. Tangentially it's the key word, no just "both are world titles". --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 12:14, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

History of Sesame StreetEdit

I edited History of Sesame Street to fix a lint error, specifically, a Bogus file options lint error. My edit was correct, but you reverted me. Right now, the Information page of History of Sesame Street shows under the heading "Lint errors" the list of lint errors, which is "Bogus file options" – 1. But even if this were somehow serving as a technically valid alt text, it would still be wrong. see Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Accessibility/Alternative text for images#How to write alternative text, which shows a picture of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a hat, with this caption:

Unless it appears in an article on fashion, the alt text should not be "an elderly woman wearing a black hat"

So, if this image does need an alt text, it should not be "An African American man, in his late 50s, wearing a blue and white striped shirt and a dark blue jacket, at the right, holding a red puppet on the left. Both are looking towards the right." None of this is of interest. What is of interest is that the man is Kevin Clash, the portrayer of Elmo, and that the puppet is Elmo, a prominent character on Sesame Street, and perhaps that the picture was taken at the Peabody Awards Luncheon in 2010. Moreover, an alt text needs alt= to work. So my change was correct on three grounds. First, I fixed a lint error. Second, even if it weren't a lint error, the text was poor and contrary to Wikipedia's manual of style for an alt text. Third, it wasn't set up as a proper alt text anyway. Please reconsider your reversion. Cheers! —Anomalocaris (talk) 07:05, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Firstly, you are correct that the markup was missing, and I fixed that. But you're incorrect about the need to change the content. Alt text is supposed to describe in plain terms what is in the picture on a purely visual level, to describe exactly what is seen so that blind readers using screen reader software can have the image drawn for them, as it were. The caption describes things like who is in the image, the alt text describes what they look like for those who can't actually see the image. oknazevad (talk) 07:25, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

The EliteEdit

Hi. Do you think MJF and Dustin are part of the Elite, or at least, associated? I watched every Dynamite and PPV, but I didn't heared about MJF and Dustin joining The Elite. Looks like everyone is following their own path. Cody has his own stable, The Nightmare Family (Cody, Brandi, DDP, Dustin and MJF) but looks like a different stable that The Elite. I only heared The Elite twice, when Omega and The Young Bucks wrestled together. But for example, Omega and Page weren't presented as The Elite. BTW, I don't like the associates section, since it's a open-member section where users includes every wrestler they want. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 11:55, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

According to cagematch, The Elite only wrestled 3 times, all of them, Omega and The Bucks. No mention of Cody, Hangman or Dustin. --HHH Pedrigree (talk) 12:12, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Well, the Elite definitely includes Cody and Hangman; they even have specific Elite t-shirts like Omega and the Bucks. Dustin and MJF (until last Saturday) were associates, as they worked with Cody, but aren't members. Beyond that, there's not much else to say. oknazevad (talk) 12:19, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Cocaine in Coca-ColaEdit

You reverted a change I made to the lede of Coca-Cola, saying, "But it wasn't refined cocaine, so that is an inaccurate statement." But the article in question said (and still says), "When launched, Coca-Cola's two key ingredients were cocaine and caffeine.", citing sources that say "it contained two key ingredients which have long held a fascination for members of the human race - cocaine and caffeine" and "the soft drink, which was marketed as a tonic, contained extracts of cocaine as well as the caffeine-rich kola nut". If you disagree with this statement, could you cite a source showing that these claims are wrong? -Silence (talk) 05:23, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

The point is the cocaine and caffeine aren't the source of the name, which is what the sentence is about. The product is "Coca-Cola", not "Cocaine-Caffeine". oknazevad (talk) 11:38, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
