Titanic Captain[change source]

Can you help me along a bit with the reference to Hemming's testimony?

Good article[change source]

Hi, I'm new to Wikipedia, so I have a question about wikipedia. I want to add some good article in my userpage to make my userpage has more content. I saw you have a lot of good article targets in your userpage and I want to know how you did that ? Would you mind telling me how to do that ? -----16chseld 110 (talk) 7:22, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Question about DYK[change source]

There's a DYK on the front page right now that is factually incorrect. Do you know a way to fix that? (I saw you've done some DYK so thought I'd ask you. The DYK is: DYK that Chicago is the largest city in the United States to have had a female mayor since 2012?

"Since" should be "as of" (as in the article): "As of 2012, Chicago was the largest city in the United States to have had a female mayor."

en.wiki seems to think she was the 40th mayor, I wonder why en.wiki counts differently than the Chicago Public Library. Are there different ways of counting mayors in Chicago? Cheers. SashiRolls (talk) 00:26, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) I've updated the main page with a new set of DYKs, which solves the problem of the main page. The 40th is probably a typo and I'm getting that fixed thanks to your reference. Thanks for bringing these both up so they could be fixed! --Tbennert (talk) 16:59, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

I saw you intervened on en.wiki, but beware... the whole Chicago Mayor template seems to be ordered differently. Now there's conflict on en.wiki between the text & the infobox, and as a result wiki-text suggests that she was mayor after both Papa Daley and Baby Daley instead of during the brief interregnum period. ^^ SashiRolls (talk) 20:57, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

what will you do for Christmas and New Years[change source]

What are you gonna do with the final days of 2017, leading into 2018? Are you gonna watch the ball drop coming into 2018? Angela Maureen (talk) 02:32, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Merry Christmas, TDKR! Angela Maureen (talk) 22:50, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
  • @ Angela Maureen: I'll probably spend the last days relaxing at home spending time with family with a party to see the ball drop in 2018 and to create Deaths in 2018 right away! Merry Christmas to you too! --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 23:03, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

Re: Deaths in 2017 / April 9 / John Clarke (satirist)[change source]

Hi. I wonder if you could help me for a moment. I added the entry for John Clarke into the April 9th register of deaths for 2017, citing the cause of his death as natural causes. You changed the entry there, citing note 44 from ABC News, to "suspected cardiac arrest".

Please note there is nothing in the article I cited as a ref, to indicate anything about suspected cardiac arrest - indeed, there is one line in the article which clearly reads "Clarke died suddenly from natural causes while bushwalking in Victoria last weekend"; this links to this article on the ABC News website. Could you please review your alterations, and look to change this back please? Thanks, DaneGeld (talk) 21:49, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

  • @DaneGeld: Do forgive me I was doing research and found an article that stated his death is a suspected case of cardiac arrest. I went to look for it again but can't find it. I found this USA Today Obit of Clarke citing his death to be suspected heart attack from a dear colleague of Clarke's. Do forgive me for this hiccup. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 22:00, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
    • Of course I forgive you. There's too little of 2017 left to hold a grudge with someone. Have a good 2018. DaneGeld (talk) 22:26, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Re: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals[change source]

He just letting you know I removed the statement saying "Trump's decision, eventually led to a federal government shutdown lasting from January 20, 2018 to January 22, 2018." As yes he did rescind it but it didn't DACA did not cause the government to shutdown, just the people in congress not being to be able to agree on anything. I removed that statement as I kind of found it misleading. Also I recommend when putting something as controversial as that, put some citations/references in their, I thought I would just let you know. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 04:57, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Also by including the statement it did make it sound kind of biased. I am not trying to bash you, just letting you know some helpful advice. I do appreciate however all of the Politcs articles that you are creating though thank you. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 04:59, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

do you think the Democrats are gonna win[change source]

Do you think the Democrats are gonna be the winners this year? Do you think they're gonna beat the Republicans in 2018? Angela Maureen (talk) 03:39, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Happy Easter 2018[change source]

Melania Trump's surgery[change source]

TDKR, please read sources carefully so that you don't put incorrect information in articles. You said that Mrs. Trump had cyst-removal surgery, but that's not what the source said. In fact, no news source I've seen or heard was specific about why the surgery was needed. I've updated the article. Let me know if you have any questions. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:30, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Gardner Dozois[change source]

I'm seeing a lot of word of mouth that Gardner Dozois died, but I'm not finding it in a reliable source. Have you seen anything about this? Enwiki reports that he died, but with no source. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:56, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

  • @Auntof6:: I'm not getting any reliable sources. The only source I found was: -> [1]. Should we update the article here to reflect his "death" like the English Wiki or wait for a reliable obit? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 05:01, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
    • I'd wait. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:03, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
      • @Auntof6:: Will do. This source just come out but it's in Italian. Is it reliable? -> [2] --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:43, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
        • I have no idea. I'm not familiar with Italian publications. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:45, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
        • Very well. Will wait for tomorrow, hopefully by then the Washington Post or NYT will pick up the story. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 06:46, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
          • Or we'll find out that it was a big hoax! --Auntof6 (talk) 06:56, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
            • @Auntof6: There are some more obits coming from other languages and Tor even released a statement on his passing. English Wiki is set on confirming his death as set. Should we do the same at this point? Here's the Tor website statement: -> [3] --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 21:52, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
              • IMO, that's reliable.--Auntof6 (talk) 22:10, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade[change source]

Did you hear that Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade killed themselves recently? Have you known anyone with depression? I was depressed between August 2006 and November 2010. But I survived it. Angela Maureen (talk) 08:39, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Czterdziestolatek[change source]

Hi, TDKR. Would you please check your recent articles to be sure the language is simple enough? Remember that part of simple language is using simple sentence structure. I simplified some of yours recently, and the new one Czterdziestolatek is not simple. The first and second paragraphs are each one long sentence which should be divided. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:27, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

DYK question[change source]

Hi, I was wondering when the next time the DYK will be Updated is. I recently submitted a fact from Coca-Cola, which got successfully accepted. When would it be on the front page? Thank you ⇒ Lucie Person (talk) 23:10, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

  • @Lucie Person:: Hi! I'm so very glad someone is making fresh nominations! You see I would normally update DYK but I was told I couldn't anymore because I was the only one updated my own hooks. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 04:33, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
  • TDKR, you can update the queues if none of your own hooks are involved and someone other than you has approved them. We just want the updating, nominating, and approving done by different people. --Auntof6 (talk) 00:36, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Simplifying[change source]

When you write about politicians, it would be simpler language to say something like "He was the President of Paraguay from 1998 until 1999" instead of "He served as the President of Paraguay from 1998 until 1999". Yes, being in an elected office is service, but our readers are much more likely to know the verb be than the verb serve. Can you please use the simpler wording? --Auntof6 (talk) 09:40, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

I see you're still doing this, for example in Ro Khanna. Please use the simpler wording. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:21, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
