Danny Phantom Fanboy Killer 2604:CB00:2612:9100:8495:3995:F7E4:CAD0 (talk) 03:24, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry I don’t do expansions on articles that are copied over without the proper attribution being given to it and with the editor who brought it over doing most of the work. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 05:44, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Why revert my changes on Lisa Montgomery[change source]

What was wrong about my wording? Meanwhile to describe drinking as a way to actually “better handle” the situation of having been raped and abused as a child is not correct and gives a misleading impression that drinking is a good way to handle trauma, instead of a common way to disassociate and harm yourself following trauma. 2603:6000:F042:5B36:4DB4:9EE0:66B8:C660 (talk) 03:25, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Replying to your message[change source]

Is it not also expressing an opinion on Wikipedia to leave the text as is saying “to better handle the situation”? Wouldn’t following your own preferred rule mean we should actually re-write it “Montgomery began drinking alcohol” etc etc, not expressing any opinion about why and leaving it implicit that the two subjects (her repeatedly facing rape and abuse & her heavy drinking) are related?

I will make that change and perhaps we can all like it better. 2603:6000:F042:5B36:4DB4:9EE0:66B8:C660 (talk) 03:29, 23 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Remove this Rfd tag[change source]

Sir, I talk you that is eligible on Santali Wikipedia. Author,Actor etc. Is easily eligible I thinks. I showing many author not have a reliable source.Ex: Maina Tudu, Tala Tudu Sar Sagun (talk) 01:25, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Sar Sagun No I will not. That is not up for debate as the article is in a discussion for deletion, so please keep everything on that page. Thanks. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 01:33, 24 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hitler[change source]

I don't remember Hitler advocating murdering Jews in Mein Kampf. I have read the book. Although there is one passage where he talks about twelve or fifteen hundred of them being killed, he appears to be talking about a small minority among them, not the vast majority. I thought that his original plan was to expel them. RegrettingMistakes777 (talk) 02:54, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

[[..._called_for_the_murder???]] Eptalon stated here that Hitler did not call for the murder of Jews in Mein Kampf. RegrettingMistakes777 (talk) 02:58, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
However, you put in your point of view, including in the edit summary where you stated "I don't believe that Hitler called for their murder in Mein Kampf" located here. That shows a point of view. If you are able to show a reference of where in a point of time he decided to kill off the Jewish population in his life, then it can be changed. I hope that helps you better understand why I reverted your addition. I did it as good faith so you are not in trouble, you just need the reference to prove what you stated you believed as every person has a different belief.

@RegrettingMistakes777 Let's move this conversation onto the talk page for the article where it will be better instead of my talk page. I will copy it over then add my comments. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 03:06, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Statutory rape/age of consent merge[change source]

Hello. I believe that the articles statutory rape and age of consent should be merged. Statutory rape either means violation of age of consent laws, or if defined more broadly sexual acts against mentally incompetent adults. The latter definition would justify a separate article for statutory rape, but the article as currently on Simple Wikipedia is only about the former definition. RegrettingMistakes777 (talk) 21:34, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@RegrettingMistakes777 This would be better to have the conversation on Wikipedia:Simple talk to get information from all of the community. To me, they should not be merged as one is a definition of what statutory rape is and the other is about age of consent (which in the US varies by state and can range from 16 to 18.

Capitalization in term 'south African' in Beit article[change source]

There was no country called South Africa during Beit's life. South Africa was founded in 1910. Before that the region was various separate British colonies with no political connection to each other. So I think that the term 'south African' should not be capitalized. RegrettingMistakes777 (talk) 00:54, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

But it was in southern Africa, correct? Even though they did not have it until 1910, lower case signifies direction where uppercase signifies a territory like Southwestern US, East Africa vs. sw US which would indicate to go to the sw of the US. Does that make sense? PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 01:00, 26 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@RegrettingMistakes777 I spent some time researching this. It will be South Africa after all. I did do some work on this. I’m reading a book written by a very distant family member and I found a few scholarly journals. If you don’t want to do this article let me know and I’ll move it to my space and work on it.

The Black Stallion (movie)[change source]

Hello, I spent 10 minutes cleaning up The Black Stallion (movie). If you still think it should be deleted, please go through RfD. Eptalon (talk) 06:37, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Eptalon Looks good to me. I trust admins for some reason, dunno why. :) I did also fix the broken citation. It had two parameters for the website (url and website) which it didn’t like. Thanks for cleaning it up. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 06:54, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Formatting, especially sister links[change source]

Take a look at some of your changes that I just undid or reformatted. If the sister link boxes appear under the infobox AND they don't appear next to the section they're coded in, then you may need to use the inline forms. What you don't want is sister link boxes by themselves way at the bottom of an article.

Also, adding a defaultsort that just specified the page name isn't necessary. A defaultsort is needed only if the sort key should be something different from the page name. That could be a person's name with the surname first, a version of the page name with diacritics removed, or something else. -- Auntof6 (talk) 00:50, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Auntof6 Ah I see what you mean. Thank you for that. I will check the others after dinner. For the default sort I thought that was on all pages because I see it a lot and it is the same thing as the page name, as if it is an index of sorts.

a:Warning users[change source]

Hi, I'm sorry but I don't know what are you talking about. And really, I don't know what IP or registered user you mean, don't know what "kosher" means or who was expressing their point of view on whom. Sending a final warning as if it were the first is a very basic error, and reviewing my contributions I didn't find that I've done anything like what you say. So please point me where I have done something like that. Thanks. -Alabama- (talk) 21:50, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@-Alabama- I am talking about User talk:2A00:23C7:DC8F:3901:C5E0:3BAF:9FED:CF6F. The first warning you gave them for today was a final warning stating vandalism. The article Einsatzgruppen they had inserted a POV and some of the edits where valid but some were not. Kosher basically means genuine and legitimate. Your reversion is the standard in the edit bar but not on the IPs talk page. PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 22:23, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
(talk page stalker) I had already given the user a level 3 warning as they have made similar disruptive edits before from different IP addresses. SWviewer automatically adds user warnings based on whatever the most recent warning was. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:43, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Fehufanga That was yesterday though and they didn’t edit for a while. I do see your post on AN however you put it in the middle of other posts instead of the bottom :) I am fully behind you. This is why I don’t like SWviewer. Any of the 3 though you should check and see what was already put on the page. Sometimes twinkle and redwarn don’t read it properly and will add it based on the month, which in my opinion and based on admin comments throughout all the VIPs we’ve had I venture to say it’s daily and resets after a while hence the stale message when they stop editing after the warning.
