Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ronald Sanders (diplomat), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Telegraph. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

New Brunswick general elections[edit]

Why are you deleting disambiguation pages? Elections New Brunswick recognises the 2014 election as the 38th, not 1935.[1] 117Avenue (talk) 03:29, 20 January 2016 (UTC) The number of assemblies does not always match the number of elections. I have a run down here. 117Avenue (talk) 07:10, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, that didn't make sense to me since the "first election" since confederation actually occured in 1866 and also becuase the other maritime provinces appeared to count elections from the creation of their legislatures. I still don't think it makes sense but if that's how their election commissions count it then I guess so be it. Alexander's Hood (talk) 23:33, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Confusing edits redirecting to non-existing pages[edit]

Revert warring[edit]

Since you've only been editing here a few months, I wonder if you're aware of WP:BRD. Are you? -- MIESIANIACAL 14:44, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Are you aware of Wikipedia:OWN? You seem to have a habit of reverting changes using condesciending, dismissive and inaccuate edit summaries and seem to treat certain articles as your personal property. You claimed the information in the living gg section duplicated material already in the article when it didn't. All that was in the article was a passing reference to two GGs having died in office when that is only one part of the section you reverted. Alexander's Hood (talk) 14:58, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
You didn't answer my question.
Regardless, you can't say you're unaware of BRD now. So, you do now know that what you wrote above (including all the personal attacks) is irrelevant. When reverted, you should have gone to the talk page to raise your concerns there and seek a consensus favouring a change to the article, if any. The attempt to deflect from that fact indicates you're aware of the inappropriateness of your actions. -- MIESIANIACAL 15:18, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
BTW, to the remark you made about there not being duplicated information in the section you added: First, I said some of the information is repeated, not all of it. Second, see the last paragraph of the 'Appointment' section: "A governor general may also resign, and two have died in office" with a note containing: "The Lord Tweedsmuir died at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital on 11 February 1940, and Georges Vanier died at Rideau Hall on 5 March 1967." Your addition of "Lord Tweedsmuir (1935-1940) and Georges Vanier (1959-1967) are the only serving governors general to have died in office" is therefore redundant. Now that List of Governors General of Canada has been amended to indicate living former governors general, so too is the entire 'Living former governors general' section. -- MIESIANIACAL 17:59, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Opened discussion at talkpage[edit]

Just letting you know. I opened up a discussion, concerning your additions to the article. GoodDay (talk) 23:28, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Just to draw it to your attention in case you didn't notice it: I responded to you at Talk:Jeanne Sauvé about the infobox issue. Regardless of what you think of me personally, my questions there are genuine. -- MIESIANIACAL 16:36, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

On another matter somewhat related to the above: Is it pertinent to show the monarch(s), governor(s) general, and prime minister(s) in office while the individual acted as speaker? None of those figures seem to be closely associated with the Speaker of the House of Commons. -- MIESIANIACAL 17:27, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Osgoode subway station[edit]

Have you been there recently? Did you take the instagram pictures? We obviously view things differently and that is covered by Wikipedia:Opinion. The new off-white track wallpanels look nothing like the original large yellow tiles. My initial reaction was that they've made the outside walls at Osgoode and St. Andrew look the same, which could be confusing. The "psychedelic designs" you are referring to are on the platform walls, which are unchanged. Secondarywaltz (talk) 14:59, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

I've been there but the pictures aren't mine. I'm referring more to the design than to the colour. Perhaps there can be a better way of phrasing it? Alexander's Hood (talk)
To be frank, with all the grime, I didn't actually recognize the original tiles as yellow. I've changed the description. Are we able to post the Instagram photos or are they considered not to be open copyright or fair use?Alexander's Hood (talk) 15:14, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
I have already uploaded images of the old tile walls to Media related to Osgoode Station at Wikimedia Commons, and will get pictures of the new panel walls. Please note that it is not the tiles that are being replaced it is only the cladding strips on the outer walls of the tracks. Secondarywaltz (talk) 15:34, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

Monarchy of Canada[edit]

Howdy. When ya'll finally settle the Canadian royal succession topic. May I 'then, put together an plainly-written opening sentence? GoodDay (talk) 01:11, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Plain writing is fine but the suggestion that the issue is still "in dispute" would be inaccurate. Wait, at least, to see if the Quebec Superior Court ruling is appealed. If it's not then the issue is settled (and even if it is appealed it's still settled for all intents and purposes until and unless a higher court overtunrs the Quebec ruling). Alexander's Hood (talk) 01:17, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm just as willing to write up either versions - eldest child & catholic ban lifted or eldest son & catholic ban kept. Whenever you all reach a consensus on the paragraphs-in-question. I'll write up a plainly written opening sentence, to reflect the consensus. GoodDay (talk) 01:41, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Succession to the British throne[edit]

I had to revert your page move. That topic is too big, to change the article title without getting a consensus. GoodDay (talk) 18:06, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. -- MIESIANIACAL 19:11, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

I noticed at the EW page, you suggested you were going to take a wiki-break due to the behaviour of another editor. That is your choice, but as a member of WP:RETENTION, I'd rather you not allow anyone to discourage you from editing Wikipedia - not even temporarily. Just thought I'd let you know :) GoodDay (talk) 23:23, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Return soon[edit]

Hope you're feeling better & will return, soon. GoodDay (talk) 18:58, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Elections for Speakers of the House of Commons of Canada[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:Elections for Speakers of the House of Commons of Canada requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

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. Liz Read! Talk! 03:19, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
