Lists of heads of state/presidents/prime ministers[edit]

Hello Sundostund. I don't know if you have these types articles on your watchlist (as you edit them a lot), but if you do, and you spot any edits from an IP address changing dates, they may be a sock of EducationThruLists (talk · contribs) – this is a typical contribution from them and their socks (see a list here). If you want to flag it up with me, I'll happily block them. Cheers, Number 57 17:16, 2 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Number 57: Hello! Yes, I do have many such articles on my watchlist, but I scroll through them even without relying on my watchlist too much. Its a real hobby of mine to edit them, and one of my favorite activities on Wikipedia... As for the vandalism involving changing of dates, I've heard about it, and saw it occasionally on the lists, including a long-term vandal from Malaysia who's apparently changing only years of birth. I have no idea if that's related to the case you pointed at, but anyway – I'll certainly flag it up with you, once I see such edits. Cheers, and Happy New Year! —Sundostund (talk) 19:19, 3 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of emperors in Ethiopia[edit]

Hello, I am VickKiang. I see that you have contributed to the article significantly, and previously reverted Mentewab's edits. However, he removed info on House of Savoy, which I reverted, but also claimed on the talk page that: "Your source is not an Ethiopian source. We will go public with this. Wikipedia - gatekeepers of a white supremacist narrative". IMO the sources utilised for the section "House of Savoy" is acceptable (IMO it definitely is, including the NY Times article). Could you please also advise me on what I should do about it? Many thanks for your help. VickKiang (talk) 00:11, 10 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@VickKiang: Hello! Yes, I certainly contributed alot to that article... IMHO, the user in question (Mentewab) is merely trying to push their own POV, disregarding sources on nationalistic/racist basis. I really see it as disruptive editing, and it should be reported if the editor is persistent with it. Also, you may think about reporting about the situation at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection. Cheers! —Sundostund (talk) 02:15, 10 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User page deletion tagging[edit]

Hello, Sundostund,

You tagged some of Beaneater00's userboxes for MFD discussions (like User:Beaneater00/Userboxes/Balkans/RSKRightofReturn and User:Beaneater00/Userboxes/Balkans/CrnaGora), but all you did was put a tag on the page, you didn't post a notice of discussion on the MFD page. This means that a discussion regarding tagged pages will not occur and these pages will not be considered for deletion. I recommend that you start using Twinkle to tag pages for deletion as it will not only take care of tagging the page you are concerned with but also create an entry of on the appropriate XFD page.

If you did create an entry on the MFD page, please correct the page tag so that it links to the discussion you have started. Right now, it's not a working link. If the tagged pages still are not linked to a deletion discussion page after this weekend, I'm going to remove the tags from the pages you are concerned with. You can always retag them should you want to. Thank you. Liz Read! Talk! 00:13, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Liz: I'm sorry, but I don't understand what is the problem here. I did use Twinkle to tag pages for deletion, and those pages are linked to their respective entries on the MFD page. —Sundostund (talk) 00:26, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was wrong, I see that you started deletion discussions at MFD, they are just not linked to the userboxes under discussion. Are there working links on those two pages for you? They just led to empty pages when I clicked on them. Liz Read! Talk! 01:17, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, Sundostund, I was doubly wrong. I went to the userbox pages and the links work from those pages. I was looking at pages that the userboxes were tanscluded to (places where the userboxes were posted) and tried the links from those pages which don't work. Because the userboxes are basically templates, the pages where they are transcluded are also marked for MFD deletion (which you can see here, here and here.
So, I was mistaken, my apologies. I'm sorry if I came across as a little bit lecturey but I spend the day posting warning messages on user talk pages and sometimes it's hard to step out of that persona which I should have done with an editor with your level of experience.
So, don't worry about it, you did everything correctly, I was wrong and I hope you have a pleasant weekend! Liz Read! Talk! 02:23, 13 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Liz: Everything is fine, really! I want you not to worry about it; mistakes do happen! Its perfectly normal, especially to an admin here – I would go nuts if I have to post all those warning messages on user talk pages, in a single day. I don't think that you came across as a lecturey, on the contrary. You are very polite, as it seems to me. Of course, I hope you have a pleasant weekend yourself!

September 2022[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from 1990 Venda coup d'état into another page. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. Please provide attribution for this duplication if it has not already been supplied by another editor, and if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, you should provide attribution for that also. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. Sennecaster (Chat) 20:30, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Sennecaster: Actually, I used 1987 Transkei coup d'état as a model for creating 1990 Ciskei coup d'état and 1990 Venda coup d'état. Those articles may be using similar wording, but I don't think that constitute direct copying. And they certainly use different sources for referencing... If the similarities between them really require that I mention copying in the edit summary, then I will have that on my mind when I create articles in the future. The subject of the articles is quite similar, so I decided to somewhat "borrow" the idea from the Transkei article, that's all. Cheers! —Sundostund (talk) 22:49, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I noticed it was flagged from Bantustan actually; the template asks you to list the page it was copied from, not copied to. The template is asinine in that way, since you catch it by reviewing the page content was copied to and then warn the person from that page :P. Your footnote had the same text from the Dissolution section; you don't need to use the exact thing, just linking the page in your summary will suffice :) Sennecaster (Chat) 23:54, 26 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sennecaster: Actually, I took that footnote from the Transkei article, along with some similar wording, and transferred it into the two articles that I created. So, the creator of the Transkei article was the first who "borrowed" the footnote from Bantustan, and the "chain" started there. I didn't even look at Bantustan when I worked on those articles. But I do understand your point, and I will link the page in my edit summary, next time when I create a new article, and use an existing one as a close model. —Sundostund (talk) 01:11, 27 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption.

I want to start out by saying I feel you deserved that barnstar. However, in my opinion you should do more extensive checks first going forward with future nominations as some of the MfDs you have put up were made in good faith. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 13:57, 19 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Knowledgekid87: Thank you for saying that you feel I deserve it. I am thankful to Dronebogus for giving it to me. But my aim isn't to get barnstars (of course, I never refuse them when I get them :). When it comes to the issue of Neo-Confederate materials, my only aim is to remove content that is, obviously, incompatible with the goals of Wikipedia. Being a strict anti-racist, I feel compelled to participate in that work. If there are any mistakes in doing that, they are completely unintentional and made in good faith. Same applies to any possible mistakes in my MfD nominations. As I earlier said here – the "cure" is very simple: consensus of editors can always refuse to delete my nomination(s). —Sundostund (talk) 14:20, 19 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

MfD drafts nominations[edit]

You should probably read WP:NDRAFT and WP:ATA. WP:GNG, WP:V, WP:RS, and any other Mainspace guidelines/policies do not usually apply to drafts. Your arguments for deletion such as “• Delete per nom. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 21:01, 6 November 2022 (UTC)” Will most likely get pushed aside and not count towards the final results of the discussion. Pizzaplayer219TalkContribs 00:38, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pizzaplayer219: Well, when I see MfD nominations which I support, and don't have other comments to add beside stating that support, I am using (and will continue to use) Delete per nom formulation. Will that be pushed aside? I don't know, and I don't care. I simply stated my opinion, by supporting the nominator's reasoning. Afterwards, consensus of editors is free to decide what to do with that particular nomination, and my opinion within it. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 00:47, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not saying that you have to stop doing those things. I'm just saying that it is likely for your "votes" to be dismissed by the closer of the discussions. You can choose to continue using that argument if you want. Pizzaplayer219TalkContribs 02:19, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Pizzaplayer219: Oh no, I understand what you wanted to say, and thank you. As I said, its my way to stress support for the nominator's reasoning. What comes after that is entirely up to consensus formed during the discussion, and to the closer of course. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 02:29, 9 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New article idea - Identity Dixie[edit]

Hi Sundostund, hope you're doing well! I want to get your feedback on an article idea - not all hate group are subject to GENSEX lol (also, continuing to write good articles on hate groups should show good behavior and the ability to write about GENSEX hate groups in future, as I hate all hate groups equally). Identity Dixie is a neo-confederate group that split from The Right Stuff (blog). I'm not sure if the sourcing justifies its own article or just a subsection on the TRS article.

Quick sourcing breakdown:
  • I collected 48 RS total.
  • 21 are from the SPLC (about half have SIGCOV, half are just passing mentions, their most in-depth article is here).
  • Many sources simply list them as included in various SPLC reports
  • Fauquier reports details of their flyering to intimidate an anti-racist rally
  • ABC News notes the SPLC reported on them and calls out their importance
  • There's a passing mention in the Huff Post
  • the Post and Courier mentions a controversy where a confederate store was selling their merchandise
  • Voa News mentions their social media activities and how they moved to VK from Facebook
  • The Nation discusses how an anti-fascist account called "Identify Dixie" tracked Identity Dixie
  • the Daily Beast reports on a member with ties to the group and references the SPLC reporting on them.
  • Law and Crime,ABC News, The Rolling Stone, and the NYT comment on how Gregory McMichael had shared Identity Dixie materials.
  • USA Today reports on their podcasts and how much content they've produced/since when.
  • The Daily Dot reports on how ID had supported a canvasser for Rubio who was assaulted and comments on their activities.
  • Salon briefly reports on how a racist author had posted material on ID before.

I'm planning to write the article on them after finishing up the Crown Heights Tenant Union, so I'd appreciate any thoughts you have beforehand! Thoughts on if sourcing justifies its own article or just a subsection to the TRS article, any wiki-projects where I could ask for feedback, and whether you'd like a ping after I write it to help me review it and work on it! TheTranarchist ⚧ Ⓐ (talk) 19:04, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi TheTranarchist! I am doing well, and I hope the same is the case with you too, and that you do your best to stay positive! And, of course, that you are well within your TBAN limit; time will fly by quickly, and that TBAN will be gone eventually. Just be patient... IMHO, I would say that Identity Dixie could have an article of its own, and that the sources you listed are sufficient enough to create such an article. At the same time, its possible that a subsection to the TRS article could be sufficient as well. You should consider both of those options. As for wiki-projects to ask for feedback, I would say that WP Discrimination and WP Human rights could be useful for something like that. Whatever you decide to do – feel free to ping me, and I will try to help, as much as I can! — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 19:43, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Size of photos issue[edit]

Sundostund sorry to bother you but could pls stop reducing the imagine size on the presidentials and prime ministerial lists . Why are you doing this the pics on the gabon articles had been on that size for years the list of prime ministers of Australia has similiar size and is a Featured lists . Also could tell me why are are youdoing this the pics is it becasue of the quality of the photos ? Friendlyhistorian (talk) 03:29, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Friendlyhistorian: I believe that your prefered size of images is too large, at least for the format of lists where you implemented it. Those lists and articles aren't of the same format as the list of Australian PMs (and they don't contain the same amount of data), so they shouldn't be viewed in the same way. You are the one who is trying to change the size of images on Gabonese artciles, the size that was the same for years. But anyway, I think that your prefered size should be reduced somewhat, and it would look fine. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 15:20, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sundostund i been trying to standarize some stuff a lot of the lists are inconsistent . It makes zero sense that one list has huge pics and the other has tiny the us list is worse i has huge huge image size i think my size choice makes sense . I can show many examples in african lists and even asian lists also i have a zoom of 150 precent on my brwoser and still look small . But i am open to ideas what do you propose ? Friendlyhistorian (talk) 16:39, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Friendlyhistorian: I get your point, but it is unlikely to expect achieving consistency on the issue of image sizes. With all the lists of officeholders around, and so many sizes of tables and their format, it could hardly be achieved. Your prefered size isn't probelmatic in itself, but it just isn't fit for any style of table, as they greatly vary in size and data. My browser is set at a zoom of 150 precent as well, and images at 70px-80px looks just fine. I don't find them to be too small. My idea would be to enlarge them at maybe 90px, as I already did at some lists, but certainly not much larger than that. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 16:50, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Seems reasonable which lists would you like me to apply it to ? Friendlyhistorian (talk) 17:09, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Friendlyhistorian: Well I can't generalize on that subject at all; as I said above - there are many lists of officeholders around, with many sizes of tables and their format. Any change depends on how the particular list already looks, and how much data it contains. It would be very hard to set some general standard on the size of images. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 17:20, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
May i propose something and also raise another minor issue ? Friendlyhistorian (talk) 17:54, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Friendlyhistorian: Yes, of course. Feel free to do that. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 18:19, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks ok my proposal is we will make list of the president , Vice president and prime minister Gabon at 90px but you we will live the cambodian head of statr and prime minister list alone since its more like the australian list as for the Equatorial guinea i prefer it at 100 but i think at it is better at 90px since i do need to do some minor modification but now . The other issue i want to raise is the the list of prime minister in Congo DRC and Congo Brazzaville and Gabon they used to have election but i think you removed them i dont remember if you did it or not so if did not i apologize in advance . Can i put them back since they are both semi presidential republican and the french list of prime minister has the same system Friendlyhistorian (talk) 19:17, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Friendlyhistorian: I really prefer all the mentioned lists to have images no larger than 90px, including the Cambodian and the Equatoguinean lists. As for parliamentary elections at DRC, Congo-Brazzaville and Gabonese lists of PMs I don't have a particular opinion about it; its possible that I removed them at some point. You can re-add them if you want, and I'll modify those lists somehow if I find it necessary. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 19:26, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok but may i know i what lists should i have like 100px cause like the new zealand and australian lists have it 100px and they are very similiar to the cambodian lists is the the presidency or head of state at the end of the list that makes it so as the have to be smaller or is it the photo assymetry cause i can see the issue with that many photos are diffrent so having them all at same size does look weird I am asking so that we don't have any dispute in the future Friendlyhistorian (talk) 19:37, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Friendlyhistorian: As you can see, the New Zealand and Australian lists have various elements that are absent from many other lists of officeholders, like the data about cabinets and coalition governments. Such additional data makes the list far more complex, and can justify the size of 100px. Also, images should have the same size within the list; otherwise, the list have weird, misshapen appearance. In the end, I truly hope that we'll avoid any dispute in the future. Best, — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 20:30, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok thank you for discussing it with me . Btw you know what is funny we are having duscission about this minor issue but the lebanon pages are a mess up and i have lost all hope they keep changing like every three months it amazing people add stuff remove stuff change formats plus the vandalism i have legit given up Friendlyhistorian (talk) 20:38, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Friendlyhistorian: Honestly, I kinda dread every time when I open the Lebanese pages. I fully expect them to be a mess every time, and to spend several hours attempting to sort them out.

Removing maintenance templates[edit]

Please stop removing maintenance templates from List of beys of Tunis after superifically adding a citation or two in the lead. In order for this long and detailed list to be properly sourced, every row in the tables will need to be reviewed and verified with reliable scholarly sources, and any unverified details would need to be removed in the process.

Issue with an article[edit]

Hi Sundostund i have a problem would you mind if i ask for some help its an issue with 2 articles ?

Ok so there a person who has removed lifespans from the list of presidents of guatemala . Also he made massive changes to the list of prime ministers of france and articles looks nothing like other lists the issue is GoldRingChip has like 131,999 edits is here much longer than me and i dont want to go and have an edit war and potentially get in trouble. My plan in these cases is usually to just let be and come back a few months later but these time i have been pretty much demoralized here . Is there anything you could do since you are also an experianced editor ? Friendlyhistorian (talk) 17:46, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Frankly I think lots of data could be included as interesting although excessive. And lifespan is just not necessary. Regardless, I shall restore those articles to keep my fellow editors happy. —GoldRingChip 18:18, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Justlettersandnumbers: As can be seen, I have created the article in question (City Assembly of Belgrade) quite some time ago (back in 2018), and at the present time I am really not interested in some serious/comprehensive work on that article. Of course, I can only thank you for your notification, and I can say that if any copyright infringement took place, it was completely unintentional on my part. Naturally, any material that resulted from such infringement should be removed from the article, and replaced with something sourced and acceptable. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 21:37, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's fine, Sundostund – the article will probably be deleted in a week or so unless someone chooses to rewrite it. The big question, of course, is whether you think that there might be other articles where you've copied content from non-free sources? If so, please mention them here so that they too can be cleaned up. Thanks, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:32, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Justlettersandnumbers: Yes, I understand. Obviously, I wouldn't want to see this article deleted. Same goes for City Assembly of Novi Sad, which is in the same position (but wasn't created by me). I would like to "save" them both, but I honestly have no idea how to rewrite them into something acceptable, with reliable free sources, and without turning it into a mammoth task... and no, I don't remember any other article created by me, that could have the same issue as this one. Naturally, mistakes could happen, but as I said, even this one wasn't intentional at all. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 20:37, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Justlettersandnumbers: Furthermore, I would recommend you to check Zagreb Assembly, City Assembly of the Capital City of Podgorica and City Assembly of Niš for possible copyright infringements. — Sundostund mppria (talk / contribs) 20:54, 27 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(edit conflict) That's fair enough, Sundostund, writing a properly-sourced article is indeed a lot of work – and so is something that to my great regret I hardly ever do any more. I said 'deleted', but it's actually more likely that it will become a redirect to the page on the city; that means that you could write a small amount about it in that page with having to worry whether it meets our notability requirements and so on. If over time that develops sufficiently you'd always be free to split it off into a separate page. And yes, will look at those too.
