About SilkAir Flight 185Edit

(Regarding this edit)

"The aircraft was built by Boeing in the United States, and the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), under lead investigator Greg Feith, participated in the investigation of the crash."

I am not an expert in English but is this sentence grammatically correct ?

There are two subjects to the verb "participated". But the first subject is a sentence itself of the form subject + verb + complement ("The aircraft was built by Boeing in the United States") !


--AXRL (talk) 17:25, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

This is moot, because after making the factual correction, I reworded the passage in a subsequent edit to avoid the awkwardness; but yes, it's grammatically correct.
There is only one subject to the verb "participated": "US National Transportation Safety Board". I don't see how you count two. TJRC (talk) 17:48, 14 January 2018 (UTC)
ok, thank you, I now understand my fault !

Partition and secession in CaliforniaEdit

TJRC, I saw you managed the discussion of merging the New California article with Partition and secession in California. Thanks for doing that. Do you think Six Californias, another article about a secession proposal, should also be merged with Partition and secession in California? Six Californias caused a bit of a stir in 2014, but it all came to nothing. It failed to get enough signatures to be on the ballot. I think Six Californias should be merged or at least shortened considerably. It doesn't merit taking up so much space on Wikipedia. Chisme (talk) 17:25, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

Probably not. It was higher-profile, and had serious financial backing, and got as far as an actual initiative and analysis by the state legislative analyst. The article is long for an article of this type, but it's not fluff. On an admittedly cursory review it appears to be well-researched and well-sourced. I don't see a lot of benefit in losing that information. I would probably !vote against a merge, but I don't have very strong feelings on it.
To tell you the truth, I wouldn't have proposed the merger on New California, either. I think the merge was a good idea, and !voted in favor of it, but I didn't feel strongly enough about it to propose the merge; I just opened the discussion once I saw the proposal, so there would be a decision one way of the other and we wouldn't have a hatnote on the article for an interminable period. TJRC (talk) 18:26, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

United States v. DuBayEdit

Hello! in reference to United States v. DuBay. I'd like to get it up to Good Article class, but don't really know what improvements need to be made. Thoughts? Eddie891 Talk Work 22:19, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm not really sure. I haven't been involved in a lot of GA nominations or assessments. TJRC (talk) 22:34, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Re: George P. KazenEdit

For the moment, I have reverted your edit on the Southern District of Texas list. Until FJC Bio confirms he has truly retired, he should be listed as inactive. If he has truly fully retired, it might take FJC Bio two or three days to be updated. Safiel (talk) 16:04, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Hmmm... I don't feel extremely strongly on this, but we have a reliable source saying he's retired. Is there any basis for the position that the FJC bio website is the exclusive source for this information? TJRC (talk) 16:19, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
This is an issue that has tripped us up a number of times in the past. Scores of Federal Judges were listed as retired, when it turned out they were actually merely inactive. The problem is that the term "retired" has a colloquial, as well as legal usage. The judge himself may have announced his retirement. But it MAY have been simply in the sense that he is no longer showing up for work OR it MAY have been in the sense that he truly retired and thus terminated his judicial service. The only source that can truly verify that fact is FJC Bio. Simply as a matter of the utmost caution, I have been listing judges as inactive, until and unless FJC Bio lists them as retired. If FJC Bio is updated to show him as retired, it is easy enough to appropriately update the article at that time. FJC Bio tends to have a lag of two or three days on updating for deaths or retirements. The best way to put it is that I am erring on the side of caution. Safiel (talk) 17:02, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Great, I'll let it sit then. A couple days' delay won't hurt anything. TJRC (talk) 17:05, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Update Just to let you know, he has formally retired per the now updated FJC Bio and I have updated all the appropriate articles accordingly. Safiel (talk) 03:00, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know; and for your courtesy in general on this discussion. TJRC (talk) 04:01, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Your welcome. Safiel (talk) 05:09, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

US AttorneysEdit


I see your comment was asking for proof of confirmation for Cullen, Hur and Joseph. Yes, they were reported out of committee on 3/22/18, as noted here.

That then placed them on the Executive Calendar as follows: Link


  • 762 1656 Thomas T. Cullen, of Virginia, to be United

States Attorney for the Western District of Virginia for the term of four years, vice John P. Fishwick, Jr., resigned. Mar 22, 2018

  • 763 1209 Robert K. Hur, of Maryland, to be United

States Attorney for the District of Maryland for the term of four years, vice Rod J. Rosenstein, term expired. Mar 22, 2018

  • 764 1660 David C. Joseph, of Louisiana, to be United

States Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana for the term of four years, vice Stephanie A. Finely, resigned. Mar 22, 2018

Their Executive Calendar Number on the aforementioned link would then be 762, 763 and 764.

According to the Senate Periodical Press Gallery dated March 22, 2018: The following nominations were considered en bloc:
Cal. #762 Cal. #763 Cal. #764 The nominations were confirmed, en bloc, by Voice Vote.

According to, each nominee has been confirmed by voice vote per the following documentation:

Feel free to double check if you'd like. It took a lot of research and double checking on my part, but from my standpoint, I see them as being confirmed, although not "officially" sworn in yet.

Thanks! Snickers2686 (talk)

Snickers2686, Great; no objection to adding the confirmation with that source. (On the article I'd reverted, there was no source). Then once he's sworn you can also document him as the actual position-holder. TJRC (talk) 15:45, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Monkey selfieEdit

Please note that was from August 2014, not July 2017. Regards, AzureCitizen (talk) 23:03, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

That's fine, but just as importantly, the basic claim in the sentence, that it was not placed in the public domain by being posted on Commons, is wrong. TJRC (talk) 23:06, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Michael Collins articleEdit

Hey there. I just looked and saw you are one of the top contributors to the Collins article. I plan to take that article (and Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Apollo 11) to FA by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing (next year). You are more than welcome to help if you would like, just wanted to let you know I plan to edit the article significantly from its current state to get it to FA. Cheers! Kees08 (Talk) 07:04, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

That's surprising. I had not thought I'd contributed that much to it, apart from the occasional vandalism reversion. I'm quite the admirer of Collins, so applaud your efforts to tighten up the article. TJRC (talk) 23:31, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
It could have been that you had so many anti-vandalism edits that you have the highest edit count to the article. Sounds good, I will continue working on the article, thanks! Kees08 (Talk) 17:09, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Mutual assured destructionEdit

Re your comment on my talk page:
  Hello, I'm TJRC. I noticed that you made one or more changes to an article, Mutual assured destruction, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. TJRC (talk) 00:48, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

That entire section is unreferenced and could be described as speculation. If you delete my addition, you should delete the entire section. However I personally think that it should be left in as they are mostly fairly reasonable, and this way if someone with a good knowledge of the literature about the subject ever edits the page he'll have as many points as possible to add references to. I understand there is a desire to be pedantic and only accept referenced points. However again in that case you should delete the entire section which has already been flagged up as "This section does not cite any sources". Boiledspaghetti (talk) 09:13, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
I agree that, after ten years, it would be okay to start removing the unreferenced material. To the extent that you mean that, if an article already has problems, it's okay to make those problems worse, I disagree with that. TJRC (talk) 19:03, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Help! New article "Boulevard of Sabana Grande"Edit


Can you review the article (proofreading)? I wrote the article in the Spanish version of Wikipedia. I have already read the article, however.

Thank you in advance. QuinteroP (talk) 21:24, 10 May 2018 (UTC)QuinteroP


Hi TJRC, thanks for the heads up re my Superstar edits, apologies there, still working on it - I was in the middle of working on it last night when my laptop unexpectedly lost power and blitzed the work I had been doing - currently rectifying that as we speak, please bear with me. Thanks. Dunks (talk) 05:27, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Why was my edit removed?Edit

Hello. Just curious as to why my edit of the "At This Moment" page was removed by you. I'm open to contructive critism and am still learning how this goes. It was my first time editing a wiki page. Probably won't do it often, and maybe never again. But I'm a Jimmy Fallon fan and thus the reason for the edit. My reasoning behind adding his cover of the song was based partly on the fact that Seth McFarlane's cover of it is mentioned. If McFarlane's cover "qualifies", then why not Fallons? I thought it was a fair thing to do. Did I simply need to include a link to the video of the cover? I could do that. Thanks for helping me in my learning process here. Apadams360 (talk) 02:29, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

I indicated it in the edit summary: " 1) unsourced; 2) does not meet WP:SONGCOVER." The first one means you didn't provide a reliable source. The second means that the addition does not appear to meet the requirements the community has established for indicating the importance of the song performance.
I have no reason to believe that McFarlane's cover of it should be included either. But just because an article has problems does not mean that it's a good thing to make those problems worse. Instead, it should be cleaned up. The inclusion of inappropriate material in an article is never a sound basis for including additional inappropriate material. (See WP:OTHERCRAP for the same idea in a slightly different context.)
You'll note I also tagged the article as poorly referenced. That's a first stage in cleaning up existing problems. Most editors, if they see inappropriate (unsourced, etc.) longstanding material in an article will tag it for cleanup, giving other editors who believe it should be kept a chance to clean it up; adding references, establishing notability, etc. But if they catch it as it's being added, it's generally removed, as yours was. TJRC (talk) 04:38, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Addition to Project songsEdit

Just curious about what prompted your addition to WP:SONGCOVER of "or the mere availability of the version as downloadable or streaming audio or video". It is obvious – being available does not make a version of a song noteworthy and the section wording should already make this clear. —Ojorojo (talk) 21:00, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

It was seeing one too many additions to an article citing a youtube video or an iTunes listing. TJRC (talk) 21:05, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
Maybe lack of English skills is the problem. I don't think adding numerous examples of bad practices is helpful. I'll revert your addition; of course you may take it up on the talk page, etc. —Ojorojo (talk) 21:57, 20 July 2018 (UTC)


Hi, I am willing to discuss this if you have a clearance. Would need to see evidence of this though, but the drive in question is under lock and key as mentioned due to risks if I ever permit it to be leaked online.

Interestingly it verifies pretty much everything Lazar said was either wrong or incomplete, the "E115" seems to refer to 115In or some other composite where 115 is actually the specific alloy composition used. I did some more research and found that there is a low melting point high entropy alloy that has possible metamaterial qualities, made from five different elements mixed in precise proportions of which two are bismuth and magnesium, when formed it is "activated" somehow by cooling in a strong electric field similar to the method used for making piezoelectric components. Possibly related to Art's Parts?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:21, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

What is this in reference to? I don't recognize this as related to any of my edits. TJRC (talk) 15:00, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Erdos-bacon numberEdit

Hi maybe you can help me understand something. You reverted my edit by saying that having a finite number is something rare. From what I can gather almost any person that has co-published an academic paper will be able to calculate their erdos number. Most people who publish start off by publishing with their professors who will have published lots and lots of papers with lots and lots of people and will have published with their professors when they started, etc etc so it is almost certain that any publishing author will be able to calculate their finite erdos number. Any person who has worked in cinema or television will be able to calculate their bacon number and it will not be high. I myself have a bacon number of 3 because I was an extra on a television program with Sean Connery who is a 2. How rare is it to have a finite Erdos Bacon number? Dom from Paris (talk) 22:05, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

No, that's not what I said. What I said was: "Erdos-bacon numbers are notable, and are sufficiently rare that it's not trivia to note when someone has such a number, particularly one of the lower ones." Finiteness doesn't enter into it, and it's addressed to the more rare Erdos-Bacon number, not to the Erdos number or the Bacon number (both of which are common-place; it's the EB number that's rare). TJRC (talk) 22:58, 24 August 2018 (UTC)
But how rare? There must be ak awful lot of welle known academics (especially ones with pages here) who have appeared in documentaries or had bit parts or extra work and so will have a Bacon number and so a Erdos Bacon number' Probably what's rarer is actors that have co-authored academic papers but not that rare either. Can you say how rare this is? Dom from Paris (talk) 08:00, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
The answer to this question bears no relationship to the question of whether a properly-sourced mention of an E-B number is suitable for inclusion in biographies in principle. Which, of course it is -- and just like everything else needs to be decided on principles of valid sourcing, due weight, etc. Removing the long primary source chains from biographical articles is an obvious yes; removing from Natalie Portman is straightforward; but keeping at Daniel Kleitman or Danica McKellar (the latter, incidentally, is the rare person who would reach WP's notability standards only for her work involving mathematics and also for her non-mathematics related acting) is also straightforward. --JBL (talk) 12:32, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
What JBL said. It's hard to fit a cogent discussion into an edit summary. I'm explaining my edit summary, but that doesn't get into the necessary detail of a full discussion. TJRC (talk) 17:57, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Small World revisionEdit

Hi! You sent me a talk message about my Small World edit. I understood why you reverted back my edits and revised my edits accordingly. Can you please check if this is okay or not? And if they're not, then do what you must. As for the new info I deleted, those all came from ride-through recordings on YouTube and I wasn't sure if those are proper sources and I understand that sometimes they can be dubious, but they do contain specific info I otherwise could not find anywhere else. Thanks in advance! 2601:645:C200:AEA0:7901:C612:A518:8ABF (talk) 01:28, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

It's certainly better. I don't know if is a reliable source, but I'll err on the side of inclusion and assume it is. I don't know whether another editor might feel differently, though. The domain name suggests its a self-published site, not generally treated as reliable.
I did some minor cleanup to your cite. TJRC (talk) 00:25, 18 December 2018 (UTC)


  You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on John Lennon; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus, rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Points to note:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made;
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes and work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
I note that you've been warned against this in the past and deleted the warning from your talk page. Please be aware that deleting a warning is deemed to mean that you have read and understood the warning. It is not a license to ignore it.

If you continue edit-warring the nest step will be to request that you be blocked. Yellow Man 1000 (talk) 19:29, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Actually, no. I reverted back to the status quo. You are the person trying to insert text that has been objected to by multiple editors. Please read WP:BRD and obtain a consensus before re-adding. TJRC (talk) 19:30, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Cross-dressing in music and operaEdit

Hi TJRC, Good day. Thank you for the info left on the edit summary of the above article. The CSD is for this URL [1] and not this [2] you indicated in the article talk page. I think the [3] is not a backward copy. Let me know if I have mistaken. Thank you. CASSIOPEIA(talk) 07:19, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, I did indeed misread... but I think they're both Wikipedia backcopies. Have a look at History of cross-dressing as of September 28, 2018, a month before the Crossdressing asian blog post, which is dated October 16, 2018. Most of the text found by the dupe-detector was in Wikipedia before that blog post. TJRC (talk) 09:08, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Revising the list of PACER alternativesEdit

Hi, you recently edited my revision to the list of PACER alternatives and said "List is long enough; and ought to be trimmed; blog is not a RS in any event." I couldn't agree more. I believe the list should be updated to reflect the current state of the world. From the current list, DocketFish no longer exists and neither does Caseflex. It's name has changed and the reference link is its own website. I propose deleting those two names and adding CourtDrive and Docketbird, which is specifically referenced by the federal courts in their emails to attorneys in their respective jurisdictions as quoted in the LawSites article ( ). Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Mikikian (talk) 21:49, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Hi, I've moved this discussion to Talk:PACER (law) and given a response there. TJRC (talk) 22:43, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

Lakewood, OHEdit

I corrected a mistake (possibly an old vandalism?) that said without a source that Cleveland is to the west of Lakewood, Ohio, but you reverted my edit with no edit summary, likely because you thought it was vandalism. Cleveland is actually to the east of Lakewood (where I live). To confirm this, just look at any map of the area; also, the geography section says Lakewood is west of Cleveland, making Cleveland to the east of Lakewood.

It occurs to me that the wording of the sentence may be ambiguous. It says Lakewood, one of Cleveland's inner-ring suburbs, borders the city of Cleveland to the west. I interpret that to mean “to the west of Lakewood”, which interpretation is widely used in Wikipedia articles. But maybe someone could take it to mean “to the west of Cleveland”. So I’d like to change the wording to Lakewood, one of Cleveland's inner-ring suburbs, borders the western part of the city of Cleveland. Any objection? Loraof (talk) 18:58, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

No objection, I see what you mean now. The existing wording could be read either way; your wording is an improvement. TJRC (talk) 19:35, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Please delete IP address > mistake / status Henschel Büro in regards to Henschel Quartett informationEdit


I am a sponsor and user of Wikipedia. Furthermore I am a founding member of the Henschel Quartett and in charge of its management. Thanks for coming back with informations after I entered Wiki as administrator. I have done so, because the Wiki info of my music ensemble Henschel Quartett needs urgent updates, e.g. regarding a new member.

Yesterday I updated the information about my ensemble Henschel Quartett in German and English.

! Updating the German version I did by mistake do it without loggin in. Now my IP address is public. Please delete and exchange by my new admin. contact, which I had used to update the English version ( )

My admin is: Henschel Büro


Your message to "Henschel Büro" asks, if I am able to meet the Wiki standard when updating the Henschel Quartett, since I am close to the issue covered. I am close and therefore I am the one to know about necessary updates. In fact I or one of the other 3 founding members should have taken a closer look earlier.

1. We have a new member since January 5 2019. His name is Gregory Maytan. He replaces Catalin Desaga, who by mistake was listed (not by me) as a full member, which he was not. Catalin Desaga had never joined the "Henschel Quartett GbR" (structure of the Henschel Quartett as recognised by the state and tax authorities), however he had -as an interim member- played a number of concerts in between 2016 and 2018 after Daniel Bell had left (full member 2010-16). Such it will not be correct to state it the way it was. This is the background to the changes I took. Nobody else but the 3 founding members of our quartet is be able to check, if information is fully correct. If ex-members have to be listed at all it should happen down below and not in the intro, as done by most of the other string quartets at Wiki, if at all ex-members are being listed, which often is not the case. We do indeed prefer to skip this information, too. But if Wiki finds it necessary it will then be Markus Henschel (1994-2010), Daniel Bell (2010-2016), interim-member Catalin Desaga (2017-2018), Gregory Maytan (2019-).

2. None of the members approves of birthdays to be published (approval needed > data regulations). We never gave permission to publish birthday dates.

3. The Orlando prize win of 2015 was missing.

So as you can see, all the updates are down-to-fact and necessary. Don´t be puzzled by our own website to still state old information. Updates in process at the moment.

I am most grateful, that you give me the chance to actually talk to you about the changes necessary. I had tried to contact as advised at a Wiki support page and have received a failure note.

Many thanks for your support!

Kind regards,

Monika Henschel

"Wah-Wah" and "Let It Be" (film)Edit

Thanks for writing - you're correct that I should have included a citation. Fortunately, this gave me a chance to review the full Let It Be page, and I saw that the story of Wah-Wah was already there, so I added a citation to that section.

Hi there. If JzG is edit warring, who is he edit warring with and wouldn’t that other editor also be edit warring? You’ve been here long enough to know. Moreover, when you template the regulars you can bet they have friends watching their talk pages who will be offended that you’re trying to teach grandma or grandpa how to suck eggs. So, please leave a thoughtful hand typed message in those situations and assume the other editor reasonably understands what they are doing. I’m not going to get involved in this dispute because I have worked for Kilpatrick Townsend many times as an expert witness, though I don’t know this particular lawyer. Just take my remarks as a word from the wise. Warm regards, Jehochman Talk 02:07, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the feedback on editing pages with British English in comparison to American English. This is a note I will keep in mind when I continue editing on Wikipedia.

Thanks again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tapp1003 (talkcontribs) 02:17, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Edits on D. B. Cooper in popular cultureEdit

  Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Sorry for the edit on D. B. Cooper in popular culture, I somehow didn't notice that you'd already undone the previous edit. You're right, it's not worth including in the article. —Rutlandbaconsouthamptonshakespeare (talk) 13:50, 2 February 2019 (UTC)


Hello, I'm confused about why you've undid some of my revisions. I have replied to your message on my talk page. Nelson21101805 (talk) 14:00, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

I've responded there. TJRC (talk) 22:37, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Two questions about infoboxes for lawyersEdit

Since you identify as a lawyer and as a wikignome, I thought I would ask you why we don't have an infobox for lawyers. Also, based on a question that came up recently at Gloria Allred, which is better for the infobox: Loyola Marymount University (JD) or Loyola Law School (JD)? I'm not very savvy on infoboxes OR law. Thanks! HouseOfChange (talk) 21:33, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't think there's much special about lawyers that they ought to have a specific infobox. It's just another profession. With judges, for example, you might have what courts they've been judge in and {{infobox judge}} (which is really {{infobox officeholder}}) takes care of that. Lawyers really don't have anything special that ought to be set apart in an infobox. Maybe particularly well-known cases; but that's handled quite adequately by the "known_for" parameter (see, e.g., F. Lee Bailey).
On the law school... I would tend to go with specifying the law school rather than the parent university. That makes sense to me for any specialized graduate school (such as medical school), too. Law schools, medical schools, graduate music schools, etc. are run with a high degree of autonomy and because of the specialization and the fact that there is in almost all cases a near-zero crossover of students, faculty and curriculum with other colleges of the university, it really is a separate beast.
In my undergrad, for example, I took courses in the colleges of Business, Arts and Science, Engineering and even Music, even though my eventual B.S. degree was awarded by my university's College of Business. Contrast that with my J.D.: I attended two different law schools (transferring after one year); all my classes were exclusively in the College of Law (university #1) or School of Law (university #2). None of my classmates -- other than a couple pursuing a joint JD/MBA -- took any courses from any other college; and no faculty taught courses in both the law school and any of the other colleges. And those JD/MBA students were really attending two colleges, and getting two degrees; if any of them ended up with a Wikipedia article, both colleges and degrees would be listed.
It's not always that way, but the exceptions are notable for being exceptions. Grammy-winning classical pianist Angelin Chang, for example, is a professor at Cleveland State University, and I believe is on the faculties of both the Cleveland–Marshall College of Law and the university's undergraduate college in the Music Department. But that's so rare it's worth noting as an unusual exception. (Although I wouldn't be surprised if there were a dozen or so professors who taught in both their university's law school and graduate or undergraduate business departments.)
I seem to have gone off on a tangent about the relative compartmentalization of the faculty rather than the students; but it was really to point up the separation of the specialized graduate schools from the parent university; and that point stands even for the alumni.

Edit Warring??Edit

To whoever this may concern:

I am totally baffled by what is taking place here. If no consensus is reached? What then? How do I know when a consensus has been reached?? And what if no one will, how do I get proof that the budget is $59 million and end it? In addition to this, it is not edit warring to correct something that has been repeatedly proven as true. If others choose to change it, it is no more argumentative to change it back as it is they insisting it is true. That being said, I haven’t made more than three edits to this page in 24 hours, therefore, there is no reason for the warning message. I do feel it’s important that the material on the page is correct, and I feel anyone else who reads it would agree. S26205229 (talk) 22:59, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Confusion and ClarificationEdit

Hi there,

I am so confused. Not with you - with this site. I’ve been on it for several months now, but have never really gotten the hang of it and never had any useful help.

As far as the first man incident, I apologize for my comment earlier: “I will, but for now it’s $59 million” or whatever I said. I had just had a very bad customer service incident at work, was hangry, and typed without thinking. My apologies. Is there any way for me to delete my comment?

My frustration with this site is growing though. For instance, I can’t find any page that has step by step instructions on how to edit. I once tried to remove an incorrect article listed as a reference, and I accidentally messed up the html code without realizing. When I went to go back, it was accidentally saved and the next thing I knew, it was blocked (I think); it said because of “sabotage.” I had no idea what happened! Also, the comments I’ve made regarding the changes: they were from people who messaged me quite bluntly (some rudely) about my change, and I thought I was responding to THEM. I didn’t know I had created a discussion or “talk” and I have no idea how I did that or how any of it works! So please bear in mind that any comments I have made that seemed intense were responding to a nasty person. I feel awful knowing that it didn’t go to them, but to the forum!

Long story short, I am completely bewildered by what’s going on. I wasn’t trying to do anything other than change a number back to where several sources have listed it. I didn’t know edit warring even existed, but now that you’ve described it, I realize my last comment classified as it. I also didn’t realize that what I sent you was copied to three different locations, and I have NO idea how that happened!

Please send me some useful links to editing a page! Thanks

The information has a source that is reliable. Please reply asap concerning my edit. Thanks. Karuna Devi Dasi (talk) 23:09, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Your edit did not include any source. Your talk page refers to "Utube" in a separate topic, but I think it is in response to my note to you. I'm guessing you mean "Youtube". If all it is is a recording of the show, that's not a reliable source discussing the show; it's basically WP:OR.
We don't need to document every performance a musical artist has ever made. There's nothing in your proposed edit that indicates this performance is in any way remarkable, unusual or otherwise notable. TJRC (talk) 23:14, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Linda Fratianne second marriageEdit

I posted "From 2008-2019 Linda was married to digital art pioneer Brentano Haleen" I am Brentano Haleen and a google search will show that I am a digital art pioneer, and that I was married to Linda during the time mentioned until very recently. A search will show that for the last three years she has been, and is currently, teaching in El Segundo at the Toyota Center (where Frank Carroll, her coach was teaching and has recently retired) and living in Los Angeles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:8804:2200:2F00:6109:B912:F9CF:7A3D (talk) 23:49, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

I don't know whether you are, in fact, Brentano Haleen; but it doesn't much matter. Wikipedia requires material -- especially material in WP:BLP articles -- to be supported by reliable, published sources. Please read WP:RS for detail. TJRC (talk) 00:03, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Bill O'HaganEdit

Hello TJRC. Like you, I was a bit skeptical of the phrase Britain’s sausage renaissance. Thinking it might have been a bit of literary flare on part of one of our fellow users. That is why I removed it from a straight statement, to a phrase in quotes. I conceded to poetic license. So when you removed it altogether, I thought you were being a little strict, but nonetheless on solid ground. Then I found this: [4]. The Economist, no less. The phrase is in the headline. I won't revert your edit, but you may wish to reconsider. Cheers! Gulbenk (talk) 01:06, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. It's a bit over the top, and does not sound like "Britain’s sausage renaissance" is an actual accepted phenomenon apart from one headline writer; but probably worth noting with a cite to the Economist. How's this? TJRC (talk) 01:44, 2 April 2019 (UTC)
That certainly improves the article. Thanks Gulbenk (talk) 02:05, 2 April 2019 (UTC)


Forgive me for disturbing, I have no intention of doing vandalism against all articles, but I added about his/her life with nationality with flag. Thanks for your advice.

List of people who disappearedEdit

Hi, I see that you unpiped a link on an unsolved death case article. Wikipedia administrator Daniel Case has thanked me multiple times for piping those links, so that is the right format. Davidgoodheart (talk) 08:12, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Can you point me to the edit you're referring to? TJRC (talk) 17:03, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

The article Murder of Amy Mihaljevic, this is what I meant. Davidgoodheart (talk) 17:42, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the help!Edit

Thank you, TJRC; the articles you pointed me to are very helpful. I'm just getting started by editing subjects I know. Looking forward to contributing more for the common good! Ronhilltoon (talk) 17:57, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
