Draft:Nir Meir edit

I just created a draft for Nir Meir, a New York City real estate developer who was recently arrested for an $86 million fraud scheme. Thriley (talk) 22:58, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

LIRR Gantries in Haverstraw? Really? edit

Somebody on panoramio misidentified a view of Long Island City from the East River as being up in Haverstraw, New York! I added a fact tag to the image, but nobody seems to be paying attention. -------User:DanTD (talk) 00:56, 17 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

 
Zoom in on this image and you'll see Gantry Plaza State Park, which you'll never find anywhere near Haverstraw, let alone across the Hudson River.

Eyes needed on The New York Times edit

Three editors are now splitting the article and making massive changes and deletions. One of the editors does not leave edit summaries even for massive deletions or massive changes, even though they were reported to ANI 12 days ago for similar behavior on this same article [1]. In my opinion, more eyes need to be on the article and on what is being done. Thank you. Softlavender (talk) 01:09, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Have you tried DRN? voorts (talk/contributions) 01:48, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
No, because it's not a dispute issue, it's a behavior issue and a lack of pagewatchers and eyes. It's particularly disturbing when this is a WP:VITAL article that is being fairly indiscriminately gutted with almost no outside views. Softlavender (talk) 01:55, 24 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Peer Review Requested edit

Hey y'all, I just wrote an article on Maud Maron, a politician/activist involved in education in NYC, and would appreciate feedback and extra pairs of eyes on it! Your Friendly Neighborhood Sociologist ⚧ Ⓐ (talk) 22:22, 31 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Oh I'm familiar with this odious person, I'll take a look.Computer-ergonomics (he/him; talk; please ping me in replies ) 02:22, 2 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Second reply - I reviewed the page and I think it's really good. I added a few tables to various congressional races but not all of them are in there. I seem to have messed up your reflist code a little bit while I was trying to add them in and I really tried to fix it but I am sorry for this! Again I think the article is amazing, thanks for writing it. Computer-ergonomics (he/him; talk; please ping me in replies ) 04:57, 2 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
