Recent Sonic editsEdit

Hi there, re: this edit at Sonic Underground, please note that we shouldn't be using flags in the infobox per WP:INFOBOXFLAG. Also, you used the wrong end date template. Just an FYI. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:47, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Inappropriate reversionEdit

Your reversion here at Sonic Underground is inappropriate for two reasons: 1) You shouldn't revert without providing a rational explanation. 2) The summary of critical response is not attributed to anyone. We do not cherrypick reviews then try to summarize those carefully selected reviews. We don't generate content, we cite content. "Mixed reviews" is a subjective phrasing that needs to be attributed to a reliable published source with a reputation for fact-checking and a clear editorial policy. This is a standard in film articles and is no different in television articles. To put it in perspective, if an editor happened to really like Sonic Underground, they might be strongly tempted to find reviews that support their POV and then summarize the critical response as "mostly positive". Wikipedia is not a forum for editors' opinions. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:11, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi again, while you were kind enough to provide an explanation in this reversion, you still haven't engaged in discussion on the matter, and in your most recent phrasing, I don't see the value in pointing out that an artistic work received both positive and negative reviews. That can be said about any work. Also, you misspelled negative. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 03:16, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open!Edit

Hi,

Common eraEdit

I suggest that, if you consider a major change should be made to an article as you did to Common Era, you propose it first at the talk page. I agree personally with much of what you did but I suspect that the likely outcome is that it will all be reverted as too major a change to make without discussion. I suggest that you make section by section proposals, introducing them one discussion at a time. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 21:48, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Cat you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria.   This process may take up to 7 days.

Your GA nomination of CatEdit

The article Cat you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold  . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Cat for things which need to be addressed.

PastafarianismEdit

How is my edit and your revert based on 'NPOV'? All I did was move the explanation for the name from the lead sentence -- where it makes the sentence hard to read -- to the second sentence which is shorter and easier to read. Darx9url (talk) 01:09, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

@Darx9url: When it states that adherents see it as a genuine religion, adding that the name is a combination of pasta and Rastafarianism in that particular spot of the article makes it sound like you are trying to argue with it being, to some, a genuine religion. The name orgin should be explianed when it first introduces the name, to make it align with the style of other Wikipedia articles. --Proud User (talk) 01:43, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

Critical response summariesEdit

Hi there, though I am aware of your arguments here and here (and oddly here) the issue isn't that WP:CHERRYPICK is a policy or a content guideline. The issue is that summaries of critical response must come from reliable sources just like any opinion. Summarizing what just happens to be on the page doesn't necessarily present the actual overall attitude of critics, and constitutes original research. Obviously if I had a bias against the show, I would be predisposed to finding negative reviews that supported my bias, and then summarizing the overall response as negative. Would you want that summary to come from a potentially biased editor? Or, if someone didn't have a bias, but went out and found a neutral balance between good and bad reviews, would that mean that the overall critical response was mixed? No, it would mean that the selection of reviews is mixed. There's a significant difference there.

Even finding a single reliable voice who says "mixed" wouldn't necessarily be sufficient, because it could constitute undue weight, i.e. giving one voice the weight to describe overall critical attitude when that might not actually be the opinion shared by the majority of critics. Though MOS:TV doesn't expressly discuss how to treat critical response, there is significant overlap between WikiProject Television editing norms and WikiProject Film. MOS:FILM instructs users to provide a reference for summaries of critical response. Frankly, I don't even see why a summary is required. If critical response was mixed, then providing a balanced representation of those reviews should be sufficient. I'd probably recommend you float a query past WT:TV to get some input. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:04, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: Summaries are not considered "original research" as explained here. It states:
Also, there is no WP:NPOV issue as both sides are sourced and treated equally. "Mixed" simply means "an equal or almost equal amount of both positive and negitive reviews." What could be more neutral than that, and how is that undue wieght? If the intro sentence were to be changed, it would be expanded to include what the show was acclaimed or criticized for. As for the last paragraph of your argument, MOS:FILM does not apply to Sonic Underground as it is a television series, not a film.--Proud User (talk) 21:50, 13 January 2016 (UTC)
I think you're conveniently missing some of my points, so I'll try to rephrase in the hope that it will help.
If editors have chosen a balanced selection of reviews, let's say 3 positive and 3 negative, that doesn't mean that the overall critical response was generally mixed, that means that the selected reviews on the page could be described as mixed. Those two concepts are not the same. If the article had six positive reviews and no negative reviews, could we reasonably extrapolate that all the reviews out there were positive? Of course not.
Further, how do we as editors determine whether a review is a net positive or a net negative? Gut feeling? Even the review aggregators, Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes are not always in accord. What metric are we supposed to use exactly? Personal interpretation? And are we basing the summary on the quotes that were selected from those hand-selected reviews? An excerpt of an excerpt? And how many reviews did you find and count out there in the wild? A hundred? Thirty? Or just the six "equal or almost equal amount of both positive and negitive reviews"?
Summary is not forbidden by the Wikipedia community, you are correct. Summaries like "Some critics felt that the pacing of the series was slow and that the animation was choppy[1][2][3][4]" would be fine if each of the attached references contained criticism about the pacing and the animation. It would be factual to say that our four hypothetical reviewers articulated explicitly that they didn't like the pacing or the animation. That doesn't require much interpretation and there are no conclusions to draw. By contrast, attempting to summarize "Critics generally disliked the pacing of the series and the choppy animation" would not be an appropriate summary because again, we're stating as fact a conclusion we've drawn from short excerpts of a very small sampling of reviews. These are different concepts, and WP:SYNTH speaks to conclusions drawn that are not expressly stated in any of the sources. This is why the summaries of overall critical response needs to come from reliable published sources. And I still think you should float the question past WT:TV or Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Television, because I think it's a good question to get the community talking about and it's high time we codify a community preference in the MOS. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 07:04, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
@Cyphoidbomb: How about the current summary that is on the page? --Proud User (talk) 10:26, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
"Acclaimed" is still too fluffy. This review you linked to says "The songs are actually kind of catchy in a Saturday morning cartoon kind of way, but the band thing still seems a bit out of place, especially when the instruments turn into weapons." "Actually kind of catchy" ≠ "acclaimed" in my mind. This version of the wording, "Sonic Underground was praised for its catchy music, but criticized for its complex plot" I think is the right way to go. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 21:08, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Recent edit on the US 2016 Presidential election pageEdit

Hello. I would like to dispute a recent edit you made on the Presidential Election article. I believe that removing Hillary Clinton from the "Active Candidates" Box, as well as the addition of a "presumptive nominee box" is not called for. The removal of Clinton from the "active candidates" box makes it appear that she is no longer campaigning, while she is still active. The addition of a "Democratic presumptive nominee" box is unfair to Senator Sanders, as he disputes the claim, and she has not reached the number of pledged delegates required for the presumption of nomination. I would appreciate it if you reverted these edits. AvRand (talk) 22:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

@Avrand6: In noticing this post I would say that Sanders can dispute whatever he wants- but reliable sources are reporting that HRC is the presumptive nominee(not the actual nominee). The Democratic Party system for choosing its nominee(which Sanders was or should have been aware of when he entered the race) is that a majority of pledged and super delegates are needed. 331dot (talk) 23:27, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Discretionary sanctions alertEdit

This message contains important information about an administrative situation on Wikipedia. It does not imply any misconduct regarding your own contributions to date.

Please carefully read this information:

The Arbitration Committee has authorised discretionary sanctions to be used for pages regarding all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, a topic which you have edited. The Committee's decision is here.

Discretionary sanctions is a system of conduct regulation designed to minimize disruption to controversial topics. This means uninvolved administrators can impose sanctions for edits relating to the topic that do not adhere to the purpose of Wikipedia, our standards of behavior, or relevant policies. Administrators may impose sanctions such as editing restrictions, bans, or blocks. This message is to notify you that sanctions are authorised for the topic you are editing. Before continuing to edit this topic, please familiarise yourself with the discretionary sanctions system. Don't hesitate to contact me or another editor if you have any questions.

Please note that United States presidential election, 2016 and several related articles are under a 1RR (see the talk page for more information). Ks0stm (TCGE) 03:04, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Warning: Quit messing with the Miszabot at Talk:United States presidential election, 2016Edit

Stop messing around with the auto-archive settings at the subject article.

You made an edit at: [1] which deceptively changed the settings of the auto-archive bot so that the change would not be detected and you set it to such a low setting that it caused active threads to be archived. Stop it!

Setting the Miszabot to a low setting is disruptive because it prevents editors from adding comments to active threads and it causes other editors who are not aware of those threads to open duplicate new threads.

If you want to pre-maturely archive threads to make room, first transparently ask all the other participating editors and put a notice in the thread stating that you want to archive it (or collapse it with a notice), and then wait and make sure the thread is dead, then ask another editor to manually archive it.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process.

Nomination of Bernie or Bust for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Bernie or Bust is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bernie or Bust (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone 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.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. -- Dane2007 talk 05:23, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Cease immediatelyEdit

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. 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 BRD 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 your 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 don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

I suggest you stop unilaterally inserting this horrible Photoshop of Mike Pence into the article, claiming you have some semblance of consensus to allow it to exist within the article. Calibrador (talk) 23:26, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Baxter LePageEdit

 

The article Baxter LePage has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Notability of gubernatorial pet not asserted. Coverage is trivial.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article 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. TM 22:38, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
