February thanks[edit]

story · music · places

Thank you for improving article quality in February. - The image, taken on a cemetery last year after the funeral of a distant but dear family member, commemorates today, with thanks for their achievements, four subjects mentioned on the Main page and Vami_IV, a friend here. Listen to music by Tchaikovsky (an article where one of the four is pictured), sung by today's subject (whose performance on stage I enjoyed two days ago). -- Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:11, 20 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

more music and flowers on Rossini's rare birthday --Gerda Arendt (talk) 18:14, 29 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How'd you find the Super Secret Guestbook?[edit]

Just curious if it's too easy. The Secret Guestbook is hidden, but this one should be really hidden. Panini! 🥪 04:11, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was just curious to see if there was a "sandbox7", following the natural progression. It's a bit too easy, possibly, but if there was no clue whatsoever it would be diabolically hard to find. 🌺 Cremastra (talk) 13:21, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Queen Anne RM[edit]

Hi, thanks for closing the RM. Could you explain your rationale, please? Rosbif73 (talk) 20:21, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Rosbif73: Sure. Per WP:NCROY, we should disambiguate when the title is ambiguous; and "oppose" !voters have, in my view, adequately proven that the title is somewhat ambiguous, not only with other monarchs named Anne, (besides Queens-consorts) but also with Queen Anne Architecture (which can easily be referred to as "Queen Anne": “Is that house Edwardian?” “Of course not, it's Queen Anne.”). Thus, I think there is a rough consensus against the move. (Of course, if you disagree with me, there are steps you can take.) 🌺 Cremastra (talk) 20:33, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per NCROY, we should disambiguate only for monarchs whose common name is ambiguous or not the primary meaning (my emphasis). Only two opposers doubted that Anne is the primary topic, and evidence in favour of primacy was provided. You don't address that aspect in your closing rationale. (And yes, I'm aware of MR, but let's not go there just yet). Rosbif73 (talk) 21:07, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That guideline uses or, not and. The title is ambiguous, and it's unclear what the PTOPIC for the title "Queen Anne" should be. 🌺 Cremastra (talk) 23:32, 28 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In the discussion, both sides acknowledge ambiguity. The RfC is primarily about whether Queen of Great Britain is the primary topic for the article title Queen Anne. The close does not address this at all. It does not demonstrate a clear understanding of the discussion and of the WP:P&G that is applicable. There is also the spirit and intent of this RfC that has been referred to. In the response immediately above, you would state: it's unclear what the PTOPIC for the title "Queen Anne" should be. There is significant discussion regarding this and substantial evidence presented. With particular reference to evidence (rather than subjective assertions), can you please explain how you have concluded the PTOPIC is unclear. Cinderella157 (talk) 11:13, 2 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, referring to the PTOPIC was a mistake. I just meant that the title is ambiguous and disambiguation was needed.
@Cinderella157 and Rosbif73: I'm willing to withdraw my closure if two editors take issue with it. 🌺 Cremastra (talk) 13:44, 2 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That may well be an appropriate course. Cinderella157 (talk) 13:54, 2 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
