AOC RfC[edit]

Greetings, it's nice to meet you. I saw your comment on the RfC - if we removed the New York Post reference, would that mollify your concern? The sentence in question has two references so we could just take that one out. Pretzel butterfly (talk) 01:33, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm concerned about BLP issues - real touchy. Unless more reliable sources are provided, it is undue and I still oppose. ~ HAL333 04:44, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As you suggested, I looked up each of the sources in the document. Of the 27 sources in the current draft, 17 are green and 10 aren't listed. Of the 10 unlisted sources, 6 are well-known national brands: PBS, CBS, ABC, and Yahoo News. The remaining 4 unlisted sources are Jewish Insider, Jewish Journal, Jewish News Syndicate, and the San Diego Union Tribune. I'm certainly open to any other advice you might have.

Huey Long in culture[edit]

Hi @HAL333: How goes it? I came across your article Huey Long in culture had a look at it. I was reviewing it as part of NPP. I notice it hasn't got bibliography section. When you click on Perry (2004) it doesn't go anywhere. It is a dead link I'm assuming your planning to add that in at some point, otherwise how will the reader know who Perry 2004 is? Also I notice the article has an earwig repport earwig that says it is 94.4%. Huge sections seemed to be coppied from somewhere else. Would that be from parent article, or is it in public domain for example? It certainly looks as though it is from the parent article. scope_creepTalk 16:32, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry about that. I split it from Huey Long in my push to get it up to FA status. I have since added a works cited section. Thanks for pointing that out. ~ HAL333 01:45, 16 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Save us[edit]

Hal, the Elon Musk talk page takes the cake for the most insanely messy one I've ever seen. I mean what?????. SO many banners, I tried to clean up a little, but since it looks like you edit there, can you remove some of the less pertinent warnings (I wouldn't know which to remove, since I don't go to the page much)? At the moment, the amount of warnings completely defeats the purpose, since there's so many none of them attract any attention, if that makes sense. Save us from this monstrosity...! Aza24 (talk) 06:18, 17 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That whole page is a mess to be honest. I'll get at it. ~ HAL333 14:50, 17 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is there a way to align the ToC and the banners next to one another maybe to consolidate space? Though that probably would only work on desktops...
The Talk page is a mess for sure and partly because (mostly brand new) editors do not seem to appreciate looking at archives or even the entire article itself first before suggesting some update that has been considered previously, often many times! I do not know how to combat it though except with some additional functionality, but one of my ideas in that vein got shot down quickly. It is puzzling. QRep2020 (talk) 15:37, 17 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

You make me proud HAL333 - on Elon Musk[edit]

Hey Hal333, we have been talking on the Elon Musk talk page. Have you realised how fun it is that ALL my suggestions have now been implemented in the Elon Musk article by you? I find that really funny as you was a big opponent of my suggestions from the beginning and strongly disagreed. What changed? Did an admin look at the page and agreed with my points that the article did by NO means uphold the quality for an objective Wiki article?

I mean, something drastically must have happened because with a snap you implemented ALL my feedback in the article. Suddenly gone was all the biased parts in the "Views"-section. So I just wanted to say thanks for implementing all my feedback - please write to me another time when you need to know how one of your articles can get better.

Huey Long[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Huey Long has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

In the Historical reputation section, this sentence appeared:"One of the few biographers to praise Long was T. Harry Williams, who classified Long's ideas as modified or neo-populism." I changed "neo-populism" to "neo-populist" which I think is the correct wording. However, "modified" seems to be missing the name of a political school of thought and doesn't make sense as it stands. Otherwise, I think the article is in good shape.

Best of luck with it moving forward..

Cormac McCarthy[edit]

Hi, I've left some comments at the review page for McCarthy. (Leaving a talk page note since I'm not sure if you're watching that page.) I think it's very close to being promoted. Most of my feedback is copyedits, though there is an image copyright issue that needs to be answered. Thanks for being my first GA review, I've learned a lot about the process.

Your GA nomination of Cormac McCarthy[edit]

The article Cormac McCarthy you nominated as a good article has passed ; see Talk:Cormac McCarthy for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already appeared on the main page as a "Did you know" item, or as a bold link under "In the News" or in the "On This Day" prose section, you can nominate it within the next seven days to appear in DYK. Bolded names with dates listed at the bottom of the "On This Day" column do not affect DYK eligibility.

Death of Jeffrey Epstein[edit]

Hello:

The copy edit you requested from the Guild of Copy Editors of the article Death of Jeffrey Epstein has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

I masked a few sentences cited using likely unreliable sources, but this hasn't made any difference to the sense of the article. I would suggest you combine the Autopsy and Autopsy Report sections into one. The Autopsy section had a citation tag on one statement. I found and added a reliable citation. Then I discovered the same information with a different citation is repeated in the Autopsy Report section. This is describing the lawyers' dissatisfaction. Also, the li nk at the end of the article only provides a title page to Epstein's autopsy not the whole thing (as far as I can tell). Best of luck with the FAC when you get to it..

Regards,

Thanks - I appreciate it. ~ HAL333 21:44, 22 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

May 2021[edit]

Stop icon
Your recent editing history at Sagan standard shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See the bold, revert, discuss cycle for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you do not violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. —Locke Coletc 21:58, 8 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Locke Cole You have failed to follow the BOLD, revert, discuss cycle. You made a bold edit, I invited you to discuss it, but you repeatedly reverted it. You have also made more than 3 reverts. I am contemplating reporting you for this violation and, considering that, it would be wise for you to undo your most recent edit and gain consensus to change the status quo. ~ HAL333 22:12, 8 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You can do whatever you like. I've made one edit and three reverts, so I will be fine. Thank you for your concern. Please be advised that being disruptive and inserting self references into our articles in violation of the SELFREF guideline may be grounds to block you from editing if you continue (even without 3RR). —Locke Coletc 22:37, 8 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A tag has been placed on Rob Ager requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G4 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion discussion, at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rob Ager. When a page has substantially identical content to that of a page deleted after a discussion, and any changes in the content do not address the reasons for which the material was previously deleted, it may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Formatting of discussion thread comments[edit]

Regarding this edit and similar ones in that section: as the following is unsolicited advice, please feel free to ignore it, particularly if you are aware of it already. Note the *, :, and # characters introduce different types of lists, and aren't just indent levels. In order to minimize the number of start/end list announcements made by screen reader software used by those with vision problems, Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Accessibility § Lists and Help:Talk pages § Indentation provide guidance on how to format discussion thread comments. The nutshell summary is if you're the first person replying, copy the prefix from the comment to which you replying, and append the character of your choice. If you're not the first person replying, copy the prefix from the last person who replied at the same nesting level. If you could consider helping to make Wikipedia discussions threads more accessible, it would be highly appreciated.

Going into a bit more detail regarding the effect of your edit for screen readers: you responded to a comment that starts with * with a reply starting with ::. The comment you were responding to consists of a first-level bulleted list item. Your reply consisted of two levels of unbulleted listed items, nested within each other. As this changed the type of the first-level list, screen readers will announce the closure of one list, and announce the start of two new levels, instead of just announcing the start of one new level if you had used *: instead. And since the comment added below yours starts with *, screen readers will announce the closure of two levels of lists and the start of a new list, instead of just announcing the closure of one list. This adds up to four extra announcements. Thanks very much for your time. isaacl (talk) 20:37, 7 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I’m not sure why you feel the need to destroy this page, removing legitimate credits because they don’t meet your definition of “reliable sources”. Accuracy is now a thing of the past on this page. And, it’s pretty brazen for you to accuse me of edit warring, when in actuality i provided a source (which of course you then claimed was unreliable for no other reason than you don’t think it is). The episodes of television have aired. They can be viewed on streaming services right now. I don’t believe that any further source is required when the episodes have already been broadcast. But your pedantic editing has destroyed the accuracy of this page. Rcarter555 (talk) 23:29, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I’m not sure why you feel the need to destroy this page I created and wrote that page. The foundation of Wikipedia is verifiability. If you want something included, find RS. ~ HAL333 00:26, 30 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

UC Riverside[edit]

As noted by Hog Farm in this edit,[1] the university's article was already the subject of an earlier notice, which means it's eligible for FAR now. Please go ahead and nominate it there! (t · c) buidhe 20:41, 3 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stanley Kubrick[edit]

Why until september? — Preceding unsigned comment added by EnzoGorlomi90 (talkcontribs) 02:33, 4 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

After a pretty tense discussion on whether to add an infobox (in 2019 I think), administrators installed a moratorium on discussing infoboxes on Talk:Stanley Kubrick until September 2021. ~ HAL333 02:37, 4 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK but please think about my suggestion. The infobox like in the Peter Sellers' article can be good.--EnzoGorlomi90 (talk) 15:30, 4 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK for Biderman's Chart of Coercion[edit]

On 12 July 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Biderman's Chart of Coercion, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that, although created to understand Chinese psychological torture of American POWs during the Korean War, Biderman's Chart of Coercion was used by American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Biderman's Chart of Coercion. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Biderman's Chart of Coercion), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Frustration at DT[edit]

Howdy. TBH, there's an editor over at Donald Trump, who's getting on my raw nerve, concerning the intro & that damned link to the Presidency of Donald Trump article. He just reverted my consensus change. GoodDay (talk) 17:02, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, from my point of view, it's pretty clear that the consensus went with A. But since not everyone can see that, a formal closure is necessary. (It's been a month and discussion has petered out, so it is totally appropriate for it to be closed now.) I see the the Closure Request folks seem to be ignoring you, do you know an admin who would close it? If I hadn't already participated, I would close it myself.~ HAL333 17:19, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We've a lot of'em at Wikipedia:List of administrators/Active. It would be better if you asked any of them, as I've got a spotty past (1-year ban 2013-14). GoodDay (talk) 17:25, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. ~ HAL333 18:31, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I may have gotten one as well. Perhaps, both administrators will review & close :) GoodDay (talk) 19:23, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deprecating the net worth parameter[edit]

You stated regarding citations listing net worth for billionaires: "It's already in the body of most billionaire biographies, so no worries there." but you are deleting the citations rather than moving them to main body of the text when the only citation is in the parameter. Why are you doing that? Now we have people belonging to the category "Billionaires" without a citation. see Terry Pegula, Peter Angelos, Yang Hyun-suk, Jerry Yang, Nigella Lawson. Nearly all your edits are removing citations that are not in the body of the text??? Are you even checking? Patapsco913 (talk) 03:31, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Of those you listed, only Yang has an unsourced billionaire category, which I have fixed. And about half the people you listed aren't even billionaires. Also, the citations we are discussing are largely outdated and in sometimes even use unreliable sources. In many of these cases, transporting the dated and unreliable net worth estimates actually harms the article and the reader's experience. Please note that I have "imported" the infobox content into some of the articles, where appropriate. If you deem a net worth estimate necessary for an article, please add it, but I am not obligated to do so. ~ HAL333 04:10, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
so why are you obsessed with removing the info. Let it rest and let people evaluate the article and see if the source is legitimate. What about John Elkann, Hal Steinbrenner, Edward J. DeBartolo Jr., Joss Sackler, Raymond Sackler, Charles Butt (where you moved the citation but with no reference to his net worth). How are you helping the project? Anyhow I commented on the Template talk:Infobox person#Update docs to deprecate net worth param. I thought we were supposed to have time to evaluate the article before you removed the information.Patapsco913 (talk) 04:17, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
if a reliable source states what there net worth is, then it should be moved to the article. If it is outdated, it should state that this was his/her net worth at this date. why not wait a bit so we can make a proposal at wikiproject biographies and see if we can get a team together to go through them one-by-one. You removed them from Amancio Ortega, Yang Huiyan, Takemitsu Takizaki, Stephen A. Schwarzman, Steve Jobs, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas - all billionaires.04:38, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Maybe you should assume good faith. Every single one of those article you linked already have a reliable source attesting to an exact net worth in the billions, that they are a billionaire, or that they own property worth billions. No problem there whatsoever. And, no. We should not transition every single bit of net worth trivia into the body. Who cares what Bobby Joe was worth in June 2013?~ HAL333 04:45, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please do not straw man me: I did not say every article needs net worth included. George Lucas - where does it state his net worth in the article? The Bloomberg citation says he was worth 9B which you removed. Why not let people who care edit the articles rather than just try to blast through them? We can go through, standardize the citations, and add context if needed. What is the rush?Patapsco913 (talk) 04:57, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Steven Spielberg - you removed the citation but did not update the article with the new net worth. Clearly you don't care.Patapsco913 (talk) 04:59, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please assume good faith. ~ HAL333 05:00, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
