Mikhail Borodin year of deathEdit

Hi there, with regard to this edit, it is not enough to revert the previous edit, as the lede now contradicts the rest of the article, which still in several places gives the year of Borodin's death as 1951. If he died on 29 May 1951 but announcement of his death was not made until 1952, then the year of his death is 1951, not 1952. —BillC talk 18:12, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

He died in 1951. I thought someone had CHANGED it to 52, and was thus reverting that change...in actual fact I seem to have made an error, and reverted a correction of a mistake. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, thanks for correcting my stupidity...must have read the diff wrong. RGloucester 20:09, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Ah, all is clear now. Thanks for replying, all the best. —BillC talk 00:35, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Mikhail BorodinEdit

 On 28 January 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Mikhail Borodin, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Chinese revolutionary leader Sun Yat-sen referred to Comintern agent Mikhail Borodin as his "Lafayette"? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Mikhail Borodin. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Mikhail Borodin), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Template:Theresa May cabinet 3 verticalEdit

First of all, apologies for reverting the edit removing Fallon. That was completely unintended; I had known you made two edits, but messed up while using Twinkle, hence the accidental removal. However, I do not see any ambiguity caused by not having months, to me they seem unnecessary, so could you clarify here. Many thanks --TedEdwards 18:04, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

DonbassEdit

Hey RGloucester. Would you like to get more involved in editing of War in Donbass? It would be great if you could help to bring this article to GA, but a revert titled "Restore last good version" does not exacly express a deep involvement in the subject matter.

Orphaned non-free image File:French government logo.svgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:French government logo.svg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:40, 23 March 2020 (UTC)

Laura KuennsbergEdit

Hi, I'm new to the editing thing and only ventured here because of the entry from 13th February about Boris Johnson's Cabinet. Please don't take offence if I've misunderstood- as a regular contributor I'm sure you'll help me if I've got it wrong- but I assume the award of a CBE and promotion to Privy Council for Laura Kuennsberg along with her post of Chief Press Officer to HM Government was a gentle satire on your part? If so, I share your sense of humour but wonder if it shouldn't be taken down and corrected now? Obviously I'm loath to try and do this as it's the first iteration of the new Cabinet and to do a revert would undo a great deal of edits since February. Please advise, Your friend, Gordibhoy Gordibhoy (talk) 13:05, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

‎Criticism of the conspiracy-theory theory of cultural MarxismEdit

Hi, I disagree with your wholesale reversal of my substantial addition to the Frankfurt School page. It does not seem to follow the normal protocol. If my addition appears biased to you, please add balancing material or make the wording more neutral, rather than deleting everything. The opinion pieces I referenced are both by academics and abundantly referenced themselves so should not be dismissed out of hand. sylv (talk) 01:23, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

I'm afraid that's not how this works. The usual protocol is WP:BRD, and the burden is on the person adding new content to justify it, not the other way around. In this specific case, the relevant article and the subject matter you inserted have been the subject of numerous talk page discussions and RfCs. There was no consensus to insert them into the article then, and there certainly isn't now. We do not create WP:FALSEBALANCE by inserting so-called 'balancing material, so no, I won't do any such thing. Instead, I'll remove these non-notable opinion pieces from the article, in line with longstanding consensus. If you want to insert them into the article, start a new talk page discussion and gain consensus. RGloucester 01:30, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for pointing out the BRD protocol, of which I was not aware. In accordance with Good reasons to revert, I will then proceed to re-revert to signal that I don't think I made a mistake or was misinformed. As you recommended, I have also opened a new discussion topic on the Talk page of the article. sylv (talk) 02:07, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I believe you have also completely erased sylv's contribution? Katiedel0 (talk) 19:43, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Is there no protocol for infiltrating articles with obvious bias and then dismissing others for their lack of protocol? Katiedel0 (talk) 19:45, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

I would like to be involved in the discussion in favour of Sylv but have been locked out of the discussion section of the article. Play fair if you are going to pretend to play fair Katiedel0 (talk) 20:01, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Seems the only "protocol" is you are allowed to take control of whatever article you want and then insult anyone who dares to question your rule over it. Azaan Habib 20:56, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

I have never 'taken control' of anything. I don't know who you are, but I'd appreciate if you spared me such accusations, and indeed, fuss, on my talk page. RGloucester 21:50, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

In regards to your monopoly of the Frankfurt School page: criticism is not a negotiation.Edit

Wikipedia is an editable platform and I see you have managed to curtail and manipulate protocol to have the final say. Your edits in the criticism section (which have been renamed "conspiracy theories" have come at the expense of other users, as well as the expense of maintaining objectivity in this article. How will you rectify this? Katiedel0 (talk) 19:56, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Casualties of the Russo-Ukrainian War → Casualties of the Ukrainian crisisEdit

Should the "Casualties of the Russo-Ukrainian War" renaming back to "Casualties of the Ukrainian crisis" be once again reexamined? Since the account that moved the article without prior consensus and the one other account (beside yourself) who voiced their opposition to the renaming back to "crisis" turned out to be one and the same person and a known sock-puppeteer who has been previously indefinitely blocked. The two accounts have both been indefinitely blocked now as well. Or do we leave it as it is? EkoGraf (talk) 22:46, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

Next time...Edit

A simple note on my Talk would suffice. I have in excess of 6,000 pages on my watchlist, I can't remember every restriction on every one of them, and Twinkle doesn't show editnotices. You might also notice that I am the one who nuked most of the Russian disinformation sites, so I am not exactly part of the IRA whitewashing effort. Guy (help!) 17:47, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

I understand. Unfortunately, this is the first time I have encountered such a restriction, so I'm not sure how they work. So far, my opinion about their effectiveness is not too good. Either way, I apologise for being hasty. RGloucester 17:52, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Automobile-related mediaEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:Automobile-related media 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!
