Contact information[edit]

I want to talk with Muninnbot, why am I here?[edit]

Muninnbot is not a real person but a bot performing automated edits. You can talk to the human handling this account on this page.

I cannot edit this page![edit]

On 2018-11-07, an administrator semi-protected my talk page because of some vandalism. You can head to User_talk:Tigraan/unprotected_backup to contact me if that affects you.

Simple instructions for new editors[edit]

Although you should probably look at WP:TALK, please at least do the following:

  • For a first contact, create a new subsection: the easy way to do so is to click on the "new section" tab above the editing area.
  • For a follow-up, indent your posts: use ':' to indent once, '::' twice, ':::', etc. - indent once more than the thread you are replying to.
  • Sign your posts, using four tildes (~~~~) at the end of them.

If you refer to a specific existing article page (e.g. Tiger), discussion of general interest should take place on the article talk page (e.g. Talk:Tiger). I will usually know by my watchlist that the page changed, but you can "ping" me by including the code {{U|Tigraan}} in your post and signing it by four tildes (cf. above).

You may still have reasons to contact me more personally, in which case it can be done on either of our talk pages. In that case, please keep the discussion where it started.

Old timers[edit]

I watch all pages that I edit in article/article talk space and user talk pages, except the ones with lots of traffic. In other cases, please ping me if needed.

Justin Huang[edit]

Hi Tigraan

Can you give some guidance about how to deal with the removal of referenced material on the Justin Huang article? Talk:Justin Huang I accept that there was too much detail (just wanted it to be comprehensive) and i am fine with writing a pared down version, but have concerns that any details on the page that are not favourable to the subject will again be wiped. Tried to discuss with Chongkian but he/she hasn't responded so not sure how to proceed. Thanks Before the Bang (talk) 23:24, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

  • @Before the Bang: I would imagine you and Chongkian's tendencies to write very long monolithic comments on the talk page discourages discussion, and that why they have not answered yet. You could suggest some specific edits (i.e. "change X to Y") on the talk page in small chunks, that would probably facilitate the discussion.
I would suggest to keep all content-related discussion on the talk page, but for a sample of what was wrong in your version (removal diff for reference):
  1. Huang's support for the resort placed him on a collision course with a coalition of indigenous land rights advocates and environmentalists, including traditional custodian, Lin Shu-ling (林淑玲), an Amis woman from the Tse-tung buluo (indigenous village) who argued: (quote) is very verbose. A better version would be Indigenous land right advocates and environmentalists opposed the project: Lin Shu-ling said that (quote), or even omit the quote in text (but keep the ref): Indigenous land right advocates and environmentalists such as Lin Shu-ling opposed the project. (That works because LSL is a blue link, it would be tougher otherwise.)
  2. With Miramar's opening blocked, Magistrate Huang announced: (two paragraphs of quote bringing little information) That could be removed entirely. The whole section is heavy on quotes. (Also, it should be "Huang", not "Magistrate Huang" - see WP:HONORIFICS.)
  3. However, the incinerator was ultimately abandoned due to reasons of economic unviability. An increase in recycling meant there wasn't enough burnable product in Taitung County (pop. 240 000) for the incinerator to operate at a profit. (ref) - The first sentence is perfectly understandable on its own. The second sentence, though probably well-sourced to the reference (otherwise, see WP:OR) provides only extremely detailed trivia on top of that. It is not likely to be interesting to the general reader, and can be removed to improve the readability of the article (I don't have a specific guideline to quote here, but the spirit ofWP:IINFO and WP:UNDUE can guide us).

Thanks Tagraan. I am fine with making those amendments. Do i need to write/upload from scratch again or is there a way to access what was already written? Before the Bang (talk) 08:20, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
