Films about rabbits and haresEdit

I noticed you removed the "Films about rabbits and hares" categories from articles of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons. Why? Don't those categories fit the cartoons? 2605:E000:2E52:FA00:3015:6E58:D904:20EF (talk) 16:12, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

@2605:E000:2E52:FA00:3015:6E58:D904:20EF: Because they are in the subcategory Category:Animated films about rabbits and hares.

C. K. Scott MoncrieffEdit

Why did you remove C. K. Scott Moncrieff from translators from French? Xxanthippe (talk) 21:23, 3 January 2020 (UTC).

@Xxanthippe: He's categorized under Category:French–English translators, which is a subcategory of the same. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 21:27, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
Thx. Xxanthippe (talk) 21:29, 3 January 2020 (UTC).
@Xxanthippe: Any time. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 21:42, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

Article suggestionsEdit

Do you think an African visual artist known as ojingiri peter art is credible enough to have an article on wikipedia? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Butterfield6 (talkcontribs) 00:23, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Butterfield6: I don't know - what kinds of sources are there about him? --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:26, 6 January 2020 (UTC)


Butterfield6 (talk) 01:33, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
@Butterfield6: Those references aren't specific enough, I'm afraid. And I'm not finding very much with a Google search. Right now I don't think there's enough to justify an article, sorry. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:13, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you so much Butterfield6 (talk) 02:19, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Butterfield6: Sorry I couldn't be of more help. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:21, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Article Suggestion: Gillie Da KidEdit

Sorry if this is not welcomed but saw that you wrote an incredible amount of articles and don't know how to go about it. Can I suggest a page be made for Gillie Da Kid? Whether you or somebody you can suggest to get this to because I'm very surprised to see there isn't one on him. He's a rapper and very notable considering. Not commercially successful but he's a really well known name in the genre and a long story to his career — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:40:C004:AAE0:9C75:A400:58A5:65DF (talk) 14:01, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Please let me fix incorrect information on the website describing meEdit


Someone created a wikipedia site about me without my knowledge on Nov 22. Here it is: I'm just a random academic, not a public figure, and don't really need a wikipedia page. The problem is, the page is wrong. It's misrepresenting my affiliations, it's misrepresenting my work, it has typos and looks highly unprofessional. I'm currently up for promotion and when I noticed the faulty page I tried to fix it immediately so nobody who is supposed to review me gets the wrong impression.

None of the changes I made are controversial in any way - they just make sure that my affiliations are correct, my work is described correctly, and readers are pointed to original sources describing my work (instead of excerpts from news articles that are glossing over key details). I provided cites for all the info.

When I finally got it fixed (took me a couple of hours since I don't speak "Wikipedia") I realized that soon thereafter you undid my edits and I also got blocked for allegedly not being who I am. I finally managed to get myself unblocked, but the person who unblocked me (called Nosebagbear) said I could not just confirm my earlier edits but had to talk to whoever blocked my edits so it would not look like there was an editing war going on.

Could you please to one of the following (1) completely delete the page (I really don't need one, my departmental website is all the professional representation I need) (2) turn it to a stub that reads "Corinna Löckenhoff is an associate professor of Human Development at Cornell University and Gerontology in Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America.[1]" it should have my Orcid ID at the bottom along with a link to my google scholar site. (3) let my original edits stand

You seem to care about women scientists (since you were nice enough to put a "women scientist" tag on the page) and it would be very helpful to this particular woman scientist if she could focus on her science instead of trying to fix her wikipedia entry.

Thanks in advance.

@Loeckenhoff: I'm afraid I'm not the one who did the reverting - I'm the one whose edits the article reverted to. It was @Drm310: who performed the revert; I would speak to them about the COI issue. I might be able to help with the rest, but for now I'd speak to them about the issue. I've pinged them for response. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 22:40, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! (clearly I have no clue about this wiki stuff - just want to make sure my entry is correct - or gone altogether) @Drm310:, looking forward to hear from you. Loeckenhoff (talk) 22:55, 8 January 2020 (UTC)Loeckenhoff
@Loeckenhoff: Don't worry - you're getting the hang of it. :-) I know it's not always the easiest place to navigate. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 22:57, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Discussion and response also at User talk:Drm310#Corinna Löckenhoff. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 22:06, 10 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Loechenhoff: I strongly sympathize with your concerns. I have commented more fully on Women in Red. Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention.--Ipigott (talk) 11:23, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Thank you!Edit

I just often see your corrections and changes that improve Wikipedia and never said thank you. Since I work on 14th c. Italian music your name always jumps out at me as being of my era. :-) -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 15:41, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

@Mscuthbert: Thanks very much - you're very kind. Little bit before my time, familiarity-wise, I'm afraid, but I run into it now and again all the same. Though my choir is currently preparing a Josquin motet for our next concert. Should be fun. :-) --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 16:56, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Superfluous categoriesEdit

Why are you making edits like this? ―Justin (koavf)TCM 20:20, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

@Koavf: My understanding is that all by-gender categories are non-diffusing by default. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:21, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
Ser Amantio di Nicolao, My understanding is that a category like American women novelists must also be diffused with another category of American novelists, e.g. Novelists from Nevada (as it's diffusing American novelists by state). ―Justin (koavf)TCM 20:25, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
@Koavf: Yes. But my understanding was also that categories by-century-and-gender should also diffuse. To wit: Category:21st-century American women artists and Category:21st-century American artists and its children. I thought that's what I was doing here? --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:27, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
Ser Amantio di Nicolao, Hm. What an annoyance. I wish we never had these non-diffusing categories. I'll read up. Thanks. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 20:28, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
@Koavf: As will I. I will say, I've noticed the rule doesn't seem to be as hard-and-fast within music articles, for whatever reason. Not being attuned (ha) to the non-classical world I can't guess further. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:30, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
