Kevin Deutsch‎Edit

I think the anonymous user technically has a point: the two sources cited for that sentence only support Kevin Deutsch‎ fabricating sources. I think the solution would be to add there one of the later sources that covers his fabricating quotes and events. -- Pemilligan (talk) 15:22, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

@Pemilligan: I added in very short comments indicating which sources are being used for which words in the sentence, and added an extra reference, but I really don't think it will help. It's Deutsch, he's self-interested, it's not REALLY about sourcing policy, it's about his vanity attempts to impose his own PR over what the news articles say. It's not like he's going to be convinced. If it keeps up, I'll just request semi-protection again; he is a banned user, after all, and isn't supposed to make any edits at all. SnowFire (talk) 22:27, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

@SnowFire: Looks good. Yeah, I realized who you're dealing with. That's what I meant about his "technically" having a point. I think the lead is more bulletproof now. -- Pemilligan (talk) 23:17, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

DYK for Noyes MuseumEdit

 On 12 February 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Noyes Museum, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the director of the Noyes Museum of Art said it "was in a beautiful location but it was in the middle of nowhere"?

Tex SchrammEdit

Regarding my edit at Tex Schramm to remove Tex in quotes, MOS:NICKNAME says to only use quoted nicknames if "it is not a common hypocorism[c] of one of their names". I think a reader would recognize that Tex is a diminutive of his given name Texas, and a redundant quoted name should not be needed in this case. Let me know your thoughts.—Bagumba (talk) 20:50, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

@Bagumba:: I will admit that I don't know anyone named "Texas" myself, so I could be wrong on this, but it doesn't strike me as "common"? At the very least, the name "Texas" is a very uncommon name - well, globally at least. That said, it does follow the "shortening to the first syllable" rule, so what do I know. If you really feel passionately, feel free to re-remov it; just that means "Tex" is nowhere in the lede, which seems wrong, because it might cause the reader to wonder why the article is titled that. SnowFire (talk) 20:57, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
Not restating the nickname is like with the Tom Hopper example in the MOS, where his full name is Thomas Edward Hopper. Now you have a good technical point about "Texas" not being "common", but I believe the spirit of the guideline is to not quote obvious nicknames, common or not.—Bagumba (talk) 21:07, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for your ideaEdit

I have made a comment in Talk:SeaTac/Airport station. Your idea is reasonable but see my explanation to why I think so (sidesteps the question if the buses go to the station or are adjacent, this is cited as "adjacent" possibly because one must cross two streets to get from the station to the southbound bus stops. Vanguard10 (talk) 05:52, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Want to add something like this?

Bus and rail connectionsEdit

King County Metro buses:

  • RapidRide A Line: to Tukwila International Boulevard Station or Federal Way Transit Center
  • Route 156: to Southcenter Mall, Des Moines and Highline College
  • Route 180: to Burien, Kent, and Auburn

Sound Transit buses:

  • Bus 560: to to West Seattle, Burien, Renton and Bellevue
  • Bus 574: to Tacoma and Lakewood in Pierce County

moe. (band) page moveEdit

Would you be able to lend your support to a page move, please? I have asked that this page be moved, per Wikipedia's rules (here). The band's name is moe., and it is listed in all lowercase letters with the period. It follows the same rules as bill bissett, danah boyd, and k.d. lang. Thank you. 208.44.170.115 (talk) 17:27, 20 June 2018 (UTC)#

C-evoEdit

Please stop removing valid reception sources, there is nothing more to say here. About the infobox, there was no discussion, and there is not policy enforcing the unsuitable VG box. cheers Shaddim (talk) 17:59, 8 July 2018 (UTC) EDit: Consensus about software needs to include me. Consensus about SOFTWARE needs to include more than the VG portal. so no consensus. Not even in the linked discussion on VG there was no consensus. Shaddim (talk) 19:35, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Regarding your revertEdit

Hey, I read the move discussion and it still does not change the fact that the name its using is not one of the available naming convention styles (as a side note, out of 5 people in the discussion, 3 were in support of some kind of move). This is a hidden category which isn't viewable by any reader (unless looking for it), so please don't revert. --Gonnym (talk) 00:34, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@Gonnym: The naming conventions are just that - conventions for the "average", normal case. They are not binding rules and even if they were, they sometimes conflict. Basically, what's the purpose of the category? My assumption is that it's a "maintenance" category, which means it is an invitation to perform "maintenance", e.g. page moves, on everything in them. The problem is, what is to be done about cases where there is a consensus to use a title that is not an "available naming convention style"? This implies that there is no maintenance to be done. If that is the purpose of the category, then it shouldn't be in it, or should at best be in a "cleared for use / endorsed by at least some editors" subcategory to distinguish articles at an unusual title due to intentional choice vs. articles at an unusual title simply because the article creator didn't know any better. SnowFire (talk) 14:43, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
You are correct, the conventions (and in particular), our naming convention, don't fully apply to this article and you are also correct in that the motive of this maintenance category is to eventually fix articles in it and your idea of a white-listed category might be something worth adding. However, in this specific case, implying that the latest vote found a consensus for the title is wrong. 2 out of the 5 did not support a move, while the majority (3) thought that the current title is wrong, but couldn't agree on a new one. That is part of the reason why I didn't jump in on this (or other articles), but instead added them to this category. Some of the articles are easy fixes, while others should need extended research and discussion to find a better name. --Gonnym (talk) 15:54, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Gonnym: Thanks for the reply.
I suppose I was unclear and should have separated my concerns: A) What do you think should be done for a hypothetical article where there is an indisputable consensus its current title is correct? (From your reply you're okay with a whitelisted category for this, or just not including them.) B) What should be done for articles that are just wrong without any evidence of long inertia, an argument for it, or anything? (For this, I would agree that your category is perfect.) C) What should be done when at least some editors are defending the current title as proper - perhaps it's not even clear that the television guidelines apply - but other editors, perhaps including yourself, disagree? (This is the Mosaic case.)
Basically, setting aside the merits of Mosaic's current title, I'd personally argue it'd be better to be "conservative" and only focus on the B set in your category. The C set is inherently an issue of policy, not of simply maintenance. Maybe there isn't a strong consensus for a title, but there isn't necessarily a consensus on how to fix it. It's okay to have, say, a user-space list of "articles that I think are totally misnamed!" that include C-space stuff. But adding them to a category has a certain official imprint to it that Something Is Officially Wrong, when editors in good standing are saying otherwise. It's not good to predecide such matters.
Anyway, there is a cut-the-knot solution to this: do you have any better ideas on how to title the Mosaic article? Bear in mind that not participating in that RM were some WP:VG people back when the article was first made who also took a puzzled look at the title, shrugged, and then said "yeah I guess I can't think of a better title." Also bear in mind that it's not originally a TV show so the WP:TV guidelines are not necessarily gospel. If there is some better title that didn't come up in the RM, I'm happy to listen to suggestions! SnowFire (talk) 17:17, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
For scenario A - if there is a consensus for a title that goes against a guideline then a white-listed category should be created so it its state will be acknowledged but not be miss-identified as needing a fix. For scenario B - If an article is using a title style not in the guidelines, either the guideline should be changed to accept that (if that's what the consensus decides) or the title goes in this category until someone wants to start fixing the issue(s) with it. For scenario C - I'd say this also goes in with category B. If there is no consensus for that title and instead is left at "no consensus", then hopefully eventually someone might be able to find a title that works or get a consensus to support one or the other. Aside from Mosaic, I didn't encounter any other articles that differ so outside policy, so it's really its own scenario. I don't really have a fully established idea for the title as I didn't research it and see what RS call it, but my gut feeling is that it would be something along the lines of "interactive x" - either interactive film (not movie), interactive miniseries or interactive storytelling / interactive story. --Gonnym (talk) 17:37, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
@Gonnym: Thanks for humoring me and using a different category name! SnowFire (talk) 22:14, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
This is the internet so its hard to distinguish between a real response and sarcasm, but I hope it was real. I never wanted to stream roll over anyone, just to get some articles fixed and figure out why some aren't (if there is some kind of common theme). Some new information has already came out of this process. --Gonnym (talk) 10:04, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
@Gonnym: Yes, the above comment was sincere and not sarcastic. It's great that you're paying attention to the issue, I just wanted to make sure we didn't force everything into a one-size-fits-all approach. SnowFire (talk) 13:39, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Ben Mendelsohn pageEdit

Hello: Your edit removed the entirety of the actor's filmography, which is not acceptable. Also not convinced your statement about director not being a column in filmographies is accurate, but no matter; please don't trash a section of an article straightaway without having the fix ready, or in the alternative, suggest it on a talk page first. You did neither.--Brad Patrick (talk) 17:48, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

@BradPatrick: Thanks for noticing. Obviously this wasn't intentional, and preview was misleading because it "looked" like the table was still there and lacking a column thanks to the table immediately beneath it. Sadly VisualEditor, terrible as it is, is the easiest way to delete a column, so I was stuck using that which I don't normally. Anyway, take another look; happy to discuss the "director" column issue, but it's really random in my opinion, barring - maybe - actors who do a lot of work with a single director (e.g. Samuel L. Jackson & Quentin Tarantino, maybe). There's lots of fields about a movie that could potentially be included, why pick Director? SnowFire (talk) 18:00, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College is hosting the second annual Wikipedia Translatathon! At this event on Thursday evening and during the day Friday this week, anyone from the public is invited to LaGuardia to join students, professors, and CUNY faculty in translating Wikipedia articles among any languages which attendees understand. Themes for this event include public health and the history of New York City.

New York City has a large immigrant population and great diversity of speakers of various languages. Among all schools in New York City, LaGuardia has the highest percentage of immigrant students, the highest percentage of students who speak a language other than English as their first language, and the greatest representation of language diversity. It is a strength of LaGuardia that it can present "Wikipedia translatathons", which are Wikipedia translation events.
