Thank you for looking at those articles. Re: Leszek Podhorodecki - "ok." in Polish means "c." (circa). refers to pl:Ilińce and more relevant, en Illintsi. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 21:53, 5 January 2019 (UTC)


River Crest Sanitarium (New York)[edit]

Hello Quisqualis, I see you removed George Dimitropolos (pulo) a second time from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Crest_Sanitarium_(New_York). Dimitropolos was director of landmark building in Romania called Palatul_Bragadiru and he owned a hotel called Hotel Olympia in NYC (200 East 42nd Street) around 1914 (research in process) and then ended up in River Crest. He is not your average individual. Can you tell me your reasons for having removed him from River Crest? He is listed on this wikipedia here https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palatul_Bragadiru. Sources include death certificate and Play Bill from the Romanian Theatre. Please advise.

Your reasons for removal are below: 1. We do not use Wikipedia as a source for Wikipedia. 2. not a notable individual 3. lack of citations of reliable sources so that others may access the same information independently My responses: Wikipedia is not the only source presented, there is hard documentary evidence, death certificate and playbill. The role of director and owner of a NYC hotel is notable. If we only relied on obtaining information which others may access independently then why do we have special institutions called Libraries or Wikipedia. I feel Libraries provide a valuable service and help obtain information that other people CANNOT source independently. Sorry but I am not following your reasoning. 23:15, 9 January 2019 (UTC)Josephintechnicolor (talk)

Wikipedia's standards of notability require coverage of a subject in WP:Reliable sources. Also, notability in Romania does not confer notability in the English-speaking world. Was Dimitropulo a national hero of Romania? Did he have an obituary in the New York Times? What books were written about him? Owning a hotel in New York City is something which many people have done. Some of the owners of multiple NYC hotels or national hotel chains have WP articles written about them, but maybe not Dimitropulo. Small fish, big pond. Do you see my point? It's the viewpoint of Wikipedia itself. Also note that we NEVER use WP as a source for WP, and that a theatre playbill is not a reliable secondary source, but a primary source, mainly for cast and crew information. A death certificate is a valid source on Wikipedia for verifying death, its time and its place. For en:Wikikpedia to consider Dimitropulo notable may take a lot of WP:Original research on your part. Unfortunately, OR is forbidden in WP articles.--Quisqualis (talk) 01:06, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
Hello Quisqualis
I am sure you are quite busy but I wanted to point out that I fixed the photos on River Crest, (no water mark, they were provided by Greater Astoria Historical Society) did you notice, any comments? 01:54, 4 February 2019 (UTC)Josephintechnicolor (talk)
The results look good. You may want to note that Wikipedia has an WP: Image lab which can remove the ink stamp from the sky area of the colored postcard brochure. They do a very good job there. Apparently, the wrong face of the postcard was inked in the stamp-cancellation process back in 1920--Quisqualis (talk) 05:12, 4 February 2019 (UTC).
Thank you. I've submitted to the lab. 09:25, 8 February 2019 (UTC)Josephintechnicolor (talk)
Hello Quisqualis

I noticed you removed Kelly (Mohre) Hyman stating she is not notable on this wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doin%27_Time_on_Planet_Earth Recently I found this PDF, hoping it will give some more credibility to the actress. Do you think so?

Inquiry re: sly syndrome page[edit]

Hello,

Will you be updating the sly syndrome article page to include the additional information posted on the talk page from Gary?

Thanks,

165.166.88.194 (talk) 20:57, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Hello, IP editor. The material presented in Gary at Ultragenyx's post regarding Mepsevii contains a disclaimer,
"The effect of this drug on the central nervous system manifestations of MPS VII has not been determined." 

which negates its inclusion in the article until further studies suggest otherwise.--Quisqualis (talk) 21:15, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Murder of Rachael Runyan[edit]

Hi. Can you be a fresh pair of eyes for Murder of Rachael Runyan ? Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 19:04, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

Done. It was a pretty well-done article to begin with. Hope this helps.--Quisqualis (talk) 23:01, 8 March 2019 (UTC)

I'm glad you edited Jonathan Mitchell, but there is one thing I want to point out[edit]

Thank you for your edits. However, in the "Early life" section, you put three [citation needed] tags, when all that information was available in http://www.newsweek.com/2015/02/27/one-activists-search-cure-his-autism-drawing-violent-backlash-306998.html. Ylevental (talk) 13:52, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Ylevental. I have a good excuse: I edited that article over a 24-your period (with sleep), and had so exhausted my brain by reading that article about 25 times in its entirety in a most granular manner, and most of the references as well. I left those tags to remind myself, or another reader (whose initials might be YL) to put in the cite. Would you please do it for me? I need to recharge my batteries with a morning of the Daily Mail now!--Quisqualis (talk) 16:31, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. Your hard work is definitely appreciated. Ylevental (talk) 17:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Quisqualis: For my edit of Changing Incorrect Information on December 20,1972, I do not understand your comments or your references. Here are your comments:

Hi, THO2! please tell us what error you are seeing. Thanks--Quisqualis (talk) 18:50, 16 March 2019 (UTC) THO2, I checked what you're trying to do. The link you have goes straight to: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/view_details.cgi on this server. Apache Server at www.airdisaster.com Port 80

Ten may be the correct number, but, with an invalid source citation and no idea how to cite sources (see your Talk page), you cannot make that edit. It will be reverted. Get a better source citation.--Quisqualis (talk) 20:26, 16 March 2019 (UTC) Look at my edit and read Wikipedia:Inline citation.It's quite simple, but you need to learn it.--Quisqualis (talk) 20:42, 16 March 2019 (UTC).

1st, I was on the plane that crashed. I have just finished writing a book about the crash and the numbers of 10 dead out of 45 on board the North Central plane are correct. There is no better source than the NSTB - AA-73-15 which is the investigative report on the accident by the National Safety Transportation Board. The link takes you to that report, but you then have to click on it. Trying to copy the link of the report itself did not work. So, I need more insight into your comments and exactly what you did. Thank you, Todd (THO2@comcast.net). — Preceding unsigned comment added by THO2 (talkcontribs) 20:15, 20 March 2019 (UTC)

Regarding your comment while undoing my edit of article Duke Cunningham[edit]

Duke Cunningham is a decorated veteran to say the least. To not write about his military history because he is mostly notable for his political and criminal background is quite injudicious. So I believe there can be a healthy debate about including his military career in the introductory paragraph.

But to undo a edit and deliberately accuse someone of violating WP:COI is highly disrespectful, more so when the language used is in line to policies of WP:NPV. I would request you to refrain from these inflammatory remarks. SoloKnowHow83 (talk) 17:55, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

About Nemenhah[edit]

I responded to you at the help desk in a manner that was intended to be even-handed, because the help desk is not for discussing articles and because that was the same advice I had given the otehr party. However, I absolutely agree with you, so here, after taking my "help desk responder" hat off, I can say that I hope you will take the time to clean that mess up. If your source are good and the scammers' sources are not, you should be able to defend your edits if try to revert and we get into arbitration or something. Hit me on my talk page if needed.-Arch dude (talk) 03:43, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Teahouse[edit]

In my opinion, you are at times too acerbic in comments at Teahouse. Often, the questions are posed by new editors, and they should not be hit with a stick, regardless of how righteous they come across. David notMD (talk) 13:18, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Mt. Olympus Edits[edit]

You are getting too acerbic with all of your comments. You told an experienced editor that "Wikipedia isn't about the truth. It's about what is stated in reliable sources. Please cite one." Yet, my edit summary explained that you cannot cite things that are no longer there. Not to mention that items in the infobox do not need to be cited when the material in the text of the article is already cited. In this particular edit, the body of the article lists five roller coasters at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park. When I changed the infobox to agree with the text in the article you insisted there be a citation. Sorry, but your opinion is incorrect. The information is already within the body of the article. There are hundreds of infoboxes without citations for each entry.JlACEer (talk) 17:54, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

In case you are unfamiliar:
From Help:Infobox
What should an infobox contain?
In general, data in infobox templates should be:
Already cited elsewhere in the article. Infoboxes, like the introduction to the article, should primarily contain material that is expanded on and supported by citations to reliable sources elsewhere in the article. However, if necessary (e.g., because the article is currently incomplete), it is possible to include footnotes in infoboxes.
