Tropical Storm Washi (Sendong)Edit

For now i think it is best to keep the death toll to what it officaly per the Philippines National disaster committee as the media has this habit of announcing deathtolls that are higher than they actually are. Thanks.Jason Rees (talk) 15:43, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

NoticeEdit

Subtropical Depressions in the SWIO are just depressions (even if they attain tropical storm force winds). Until they get to 75 mph they will be classified as tropical. Bruvtakesover (T|C) 08:41, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Armed conflicts and incidentsEdit

Nice work on the additions. Would just like to add though to watch out for copyvios and adding histories not pertinent to the attack itself. The page size is already 80k+, so redundacies are better left to the perpetrator pages.(Lihaas (talk) 03:24, 13 March 2012 (UTC)).

We edit conflicted on 2013 Nanga Parbat tourist shootingEdit

Hello,

I just wanted to inform you that we edit conflicted on the 2013 Nanga Parbat tourist shooting article. I had added quite a bit of information so I over-rid the Edit Conflict, and manually added almost everything you had added. Please check the article to see if I've missed anything.

Cheers,

  • Thanks for the notification, I already saw it as I was adding stuff to the page, duly waited until you placed everything back in order. Just added a map to the infobox, will maybe expand the article later today as more details become available. Once again, thanks for your contribution, nice to see some well-mannered and professional people on here for a change :))) --Skycycle (talk) 16:09, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for waiting until i was done processing the edit conflicts. I was half worried myself that you would be making another edit, which could mix it all up. I'm done with the article for the time being, so you can take over and make any changes you think I've missed. :)
I must note that your response to the Edit conflict has been remarkably better than most users I would expect to see. I'll check if the article meets ITN levels now. TheOriginalSoni (talk) 16:15, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Note - Shias are mentioned as a majority and a minority both in the article. It needs to be clarified which one it is. TheOriginalSoni (talk) 16:32, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Thoughts on my war articleEdit

I was searching around for people who know what they are doing in war articles. If you have time could you take a look at mine, it is about some recent event in Iraq, I was hoping it could be added into the Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal) campaignbox. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jawahir_Mall_in_Kirkuk

Thanks--SourCreamShoe (talk) 03:17, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the input, I took a quick look and it does need some editing + significant parts of the attack are missing, including casualties. Another thing that needs to be taken care of is the way sources are presentedm, but I will edit it when I get a chance in the next day or two and you can see the results for yourself. It's always a good idea to use previous attack articles as "templates", where you can just change the info and pretty much use half of the stuff in there as it is. Also keep in mind I have been busy recently, so a lot of major attacks are missing from the campaignbox - not to mention that with the recent increase in violence we cannot realistically keep up with all of them and we have to select what to do and what to leave to the side. As you can see, I have added most attack before September to the campaignbox, and they will be edited and created - probably around the Christmas holidays when I have more time off. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Skycycle (talk) 12:47, 6 December 2013 (UTC)
Edit: I have moved the page to December 2013 Kirkuk attack for better clarity and also to reflect the way most of these attack articles have been named in the past. I will now put a template on the top so people know it's under construction, and when I get a chance over the next few days I will expand and clean up the article - just sit back and enjoy :) Skycycle (talk) 12:54, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal)Edit

I added information about the destruction of the Iraqi army two camps of Al Qaeda. I think. this is important information for articles Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal) Hanibal911 (talk) 21:01, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

If you do not like my contribution to this article then I will not more add my information in this article. Hanibal911 (talk) 14:22, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

I love how passionate you are about the topic, but let's keep it tidy, WP is not a directory of every attack or every day of the conflict. Keep it simple, delete 2/3 of what you've written and leave the major attacks and developments only. We could use more context in the article, and way less attacks, no need to mention every single event of every single day, just the ones that are major. I have had less free time recently, but will soon rejoin in editing the article seriously, I can clip it a bit if that's fine with you. Skycycle (talk) 15:37, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I got excited and probably and I will be edit the article but I will be add less data than before. But you could help me to remove all the excess and not particularly important information. Hanibal911 (talk) 18:05, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Campaignbox Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal)Edit

What do the numbers represent (e.g. "2nd Baghdad & 1st Nasiriyah", "4th Baghdad & 1st Hilla", etc.) here (Template:Campaignbox Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal))? Thanks for the clarification. Plot Spoiler (talk) 23:39, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Hello there! The numbers represted consecutive attacks - while Baghdad is attacked almost daily, if the attacks says Baghdad 7th (for example), then it was either a MAJOR attack in the capital, or the larger (lets say 75-80%+) of casualties for the day took place in that city. So for example 1st Nasiriyah doesn't mean that there were no previous attacks in that particular city - of course there were - but this was the first major one. Obviously with the escalation of violence in mid-2013, the list for that year is a bit incomplete after early September, lots of incidents during the last 3 months of 2013 have to be added.

Watching for pro-Israel propagandaEdit

Great catch on the Current Events page, though another visitor got to the edit first. I didn't even notice that Eframgoldberg had invented Fatah's involvement in the new social media campaign. Thanks for the tip on what to look out for in the future. Farolif (talk) 00:21, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Actually if you had bothered to follow the news source to MEMRI you would have seen the story and the actual screenshots of facebooks posts from Fatah's official page.Eframgoldberg (talk) 00:42, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

if you had bothered to follow the news source to MEMRI No, that's now how it works here. (Even -if- someone knew who MEMRI was...) Farolif (talk) 01:43, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Legitimate articles covering current events in Israel are not a priori pro-Israel. The same way that an article describing an ISIS beheading an British aid worker should not be considered "pro-Great Britain". Nothing in the headline was subjective or not represented by plain facts in the articles themselves. Eframgoldberg (talk) 01:22, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Let me put it this way - I am categorically against the actions of the Israeli government, but that does not influence the fact that the description was borderline-false. Fatah was not mentioned ANYWHERE in that article, and even if it was, that's not the main news event. Next time keep it simple, as in "A Palestinian civilian injures three soliders in the third car attack in as many days" or something of the sort. Everything other than a simple rephrasing of the content of a news post is distorting and not welcome, and will only waste everyone's time. 145.109.13.68 (talk) 11:57, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Nagorno-Karabakh conflictEdit

I wanted to ask you a few questions about your edit here [1] on the casualties of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict so I could better understand it. You edited in 28,000-38,000 dead per the sources. However: de Waal cites 17,000-26,000, Euronews makes no mention of a figure, Asia Times talks about the Iraq conflict and not Nagorno-Karabakh (I removed this source), couldn't find the concrete figure from Uppsala Conflict Data Program (provide a direct source if you could), Naharnet says 30,000. We also have this source [2] (that you didn't insert) which says at least 30,856-35,856 were killed (we can also add it too). As far as I can see, the figure is more in the 17,000-36,000 range and not 28,000-38,000 as you put. I thank you in advance for your reply. EkoGraf (talk) 06:09, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Secours Populaire FrancaisEdit

Hi there. I reverted your removal of the mention of this on the Nepal earthquake page. I hope it doesn't bother you, I mentioned in the edit summary it seems like a relatively large initial donation for a single private organization, given that the U.S. gov't has only pledged $1 million so far. Also, I had just written an article for the organization to remove the red-link, so I was hoping to preserve my original intent in writing that. Anyway hope it's not a big deal, but please let me know if you think this should not be done. Centrify (f / k / a Factchecker_blah_blah_blah) (talk) (contribs) 20:37, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

 On 24 January 2017, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article Kuneru train derailment, which you updated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page. Stephen 21:50, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Albert Heijn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lier. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikiproject!Edit

Hello, Skycycle! I saw you recently edited a page related to the Green party and green politics. There is a WikiProject that has been formed - WikiProject Green Politics and I thought this might be something you'd be interested in joining! So please head on over to the project page and take a look! Thanks for your time. Me-123567-Me (talk) 02:17, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 2017 Lesotho Defence Force helicopter crashEdit

 

The article 2017 Lesotho Defence Force helicopter crash has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No evidence that this accident is noteworthy for a stand-alone article, helicopter crashes are not rare particularly military operated ones. Really needs to be the cause of death of a wiki notable person or another notable feature to have an article.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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. MilborneOne (talk) 19:31, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

Nomination of 2017 Lesotho Defence Force helicopter crash for deletionEdit

 

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article 2017 Lesotho Defence Force helicopter crash 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/2017 Lesotho Defence Force helicopter crash 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. ...William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 17:31, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Well, I thought we were waiting for discussion on talk page, which never happened, so not sure why we are going straight to nomination but alright. No page created yet for the discussion, so I will wait for it. Skycycle (talk) 22:00, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:2015 UEFA European Under-17 Championship Logo.png.jpgEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:2015 UEFA European Under-17 Championship Logo.png.jpg. 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) 17:02, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

ITN recognition for 2017 Nasiriyah attacksEdit

 On 17 September 2017, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article 2017 Nasiriyah attacks, which you updated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page. Vanamonde (talk) 04:52, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Association football stats updateEdit

Hi, I'd find it better to update player's stats after when the latest match today has finished - to avoid possible confusion as some may think this is updated during a match and may be considered as a live update. Iggy (Swan) 16:37, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I thought that's the case either way but had a few minutes. Those few players' stats are prior to the games that just finished. Skycycle (talk) 16:57, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

A kitten for you!Edit

Your edits on 2018 Papua New Guinea earthquake have been numerous and important. Thank you for improving the article so much!

Alex of Canada (talk) 07:47, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 5Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited List of earthquakes in Bulgaria, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ruse (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:44, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to WikiProject PortalsEdit

The Portals WikiProject has been rebooted.

You are invited to join, and participate in the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system and all the portals in it.

There are sections on the WikiProject page dedicated to tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too), and areas on the talk page for discussing the improvement and automation of the various features of portals.

Many complaints have been lodged in the RfC to delete all portals, pointing out their various problems. They say that many portals are not maintained, or have fallen out of date, are useless, etc. Many of the !votes indicate that the editors who posted them simply don't believe in the potential of portals anymore.

It's time to change all that. Let's give them reasons to believe in portals, by revitalizing them.

The best response to a deletion nomination is to fix the page that was nominated. The further underway the effort is to improve portals by the time the RfC has run its course, the more of the reasons against portals will no longer apply. RfCs typically run 30 days. There are 19 days left in this one. Let's see how many portals we can update and improve before the RfC is closed, and beyond.

A healthy WikiProject dedicated to supporting and maintaining portals may be the strongest argument of all not to delete.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

Let's do this.

See ya at the WikiProject!

Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   10:24, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject Cryptozoology EmergencyEdit

Just thought I'd give everyone that's a member of WikiProject Cryprozoology a heads up. I've been seeing a lot of that looks like vandalism by Bloodoffox, removing cryptozoology categories and rewording things to appear as though article topics are on mythological creatures. I believe this is an attempt to get his merger proposal for List of Cryptids merged with List of mythological creatures although I cannot be sure. You might want to give your input here--Paleface Jack 02:58, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

April 2018Edit

  Hello. This is a message to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions, such as the edit you made to Template:F1 Constructors Standings, did not appear constructive and has been reverted. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our policies and guidelines. You can find information about these at our welcome page which also provides further information about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. If you only meant to make test edits, please use the sandbox for that. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. Thank you. Corvus tristis (talk) 14:23, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

In WP:F1 community we have a consensus that we order the table by best results of the team, not by the drivers. Corvus tristis (talk) 14:31, 29 April 2018 (UTC)

Pillars of Eternity II: DeadfireEdit

There is no reason to remove plot information that is both sourced from the game and because of spoilers. Read WP:VG/RS and WP:SPOILERS. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 15:05, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

RE: Hurricane ACE ReportsEdit

My apologies for not including the original advisories from the NHC for Florence, Gordon, and Helene. I did not know I was supposed to include advisories for when they were potential tropical cyclones, and certainly did not intentionally publish incomplete content. I appreciate the constructive criticism. Thanks! Im Dreaming (talk) 17:16, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

    • No worries, I'm glad you are a reasonable person and didn't argue, unlike many others here - generally, all official 6-hour advisories are included, sometimes special ones - you can look at coverage from previous years if in doubt. Gonna be a busy week ahead in terms of ACE, and unfortunately likely to be a bad few weeks for the Carolinas... Skycycle (talk) 17:21, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Deprodding of December 2018 Venezuela earthquakesEdit

I have removed the {{proposed deletion/dated}} tag from December 2018 Venezuela earthquakes, which you proposed for deletion. I'm leaving this message here to notify you about it. If you still think this article should be deleted, please do not add {{proposed deletion}} back to the file. Instead, feel free to list it at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion. Thanks! --Jamez42 (talk) 12:29, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

And what is the difference? I googled how to delete articles, and the template is what I reached - the article has to be deleted for sure, because it doesn't meet notability standards with regard to quakes - no casualties, not a rare location, nothing. If we make articles for every quake that causes damage, that's hundreds of articles per year. Skycycle (talk) 12:36, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

F1 Drivers Standings tableEdit

Hello. Why I can't edit the template table? Following the official source by FIA, we need to put = for Albon. Can you do it? Best regards.--95.234.61.125 (talk) 11:46, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

European Parliament election 2019 in Bulgaria template - election fraud: numbers don't add upEdit

Hello User:Skycycle, I am little bit confused: the numbers in the template for the election of the European Parliament in Bulgaria 2019 do not add up and must be wrong, see the relevant talk page. Could you explain that to me or correct it? I don't understand it. Thank you in advance! C-Kobold (talk) 21:37, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Hey C-Kobold, I already saw your message on the talk pages - just for the record, no need to post it once on the article and again on the template itself, article is usually enough and better in terms of visibility :) As for the numbers, these are not final so I assume some changes will occur - I am monitoring for that, and will double-check them regardless at some point in the next days. Skycycle (talk) 23:27, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your fast answer, @Skycycle:! I don't think the numbers will change, because on https://election-results.eu/national-results/bulgaria/2019-2024/ the vote share is presented as "final results" (I don't understand Bulgaria, I always use Google Translate). C-Kobold (talk) 23:47, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I am Bulgarian myself, and I'll try to get to the bottom of it eventually. No need to necessarily rush it IMO since it's a minor difference, but thanks for the heads up C-Kobold! Skycycle (talk) 23:55, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Good evening Skycycle, I don't have the time and language knowledge (Bulgarian) to analyse the election result open data in csv format from here: https://results.cik.bg/ep2019/csv.zip . Maybe you, as Bulgarian native speaker, can make use of the data and spot the error? In my opinion, this is not a "minor difference". I always assume the worst case, so for me, it looks more like election fraud. C-Kobold (talk) 00:03, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
C-Kobold election fraud is virtually guaranteed in Bulgaria, as well as most of the region to be honest, one could probably find discrepancies in previous years' results as well - it's just reality of life in the Balkans, and the reason why many choose not to live there, including this user. My point is, however, that I will look into it, but let's not force the issue too much maybe? Thanks :) Skycycle (talk)

but let's not force the issue too much maybe

Why? Are you afraid to face consequences?!? Election fraud has to be made public; and has to be proven! You could help by translating the relevant laws / articles and titles into English! That would be awesome! C-Kobold (talk) 00:15, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
C-Kobold dude of course not :D There will be no consequences because the wheel will keep on spinning, you should probably read up on corruption and recent political history in Bulgaria and the region as a whole. It's common knowledge that elections are rigged and votes are bought, although the degree to which this happens remains murky. One example in last month's vote had to do with a number of cases where candidates that were outside of their list's top 5 got huge percentages of all preferential votes in several small villages, or a neighborhood, and so on. Clearly someone paid for 20-30-50 votes at a time through back channels. This is of course without mentioning the oligarchy that controls most of the media and publishes blatant lies and propaganda - anything from European gays are coming for you children to Chemtrails: are they a threat?, and we're not mentioning the rampant corruption on all levels - from the cop on the street to the CEOs in the business towers. Hence, as a journalist and a liberal arts major I am just mildly amused by your response to all of this, in a very nice and polite way I hope - nothing personal. What I actually meant by let's not force the issue is that this is a small possible edit in a template, and we've written half an article about it already. Still, I will try and get to the bottom of it, let's leave it at this shall we? :) Cheers! Skycycle (talk) 00:22, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
The news coverage across Europe about this blatant election fraud is non-existant:
* Google search "ballot rigging bulgaria" in the last week
* Google search "election fraud bulgaria" in the last week
* Google search "vote rigging bulgaria" in the last week
... so I don't think we should brush this election fraud under the carpet. It should be big news!
Apart from that: here in Germany, we also have the Springer press, which owns a lot of the media, pushing propaganda - but we didn't have election fraud so far. C-Kobold (talk) 00:35, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Skepta discographyEdit

Sources placed directly below peaks inside wikitables are there for a reason: they are temporarily verifying said peak until the header reference (which is usually an archive) displays the peak. You clearly did not check said header refs at Skepta discography before removing the temporary references, because you would have seen they are not supported by those (as charts.nz and irish-charts.com have not updated with the new data yet). Do not remove them until the peaks are displayed at them per WP:V. Thanks. Ss112 07:24, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
