Please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style where it states, "style and formatting should be consistent within an article. Where more than one style is acceptable under MoS, editors should not change an article from one of those styles to another without a good reason." Some articles use No. and other use number. Both are acceptable. Changing because some other article uses a different format is not a good reason as some articles use this format. Walter Görlitz (talk) 23:13, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

If it's worth anything to you, and I'm not sure why you care so much, I'm the one who originally brought that article to GA. I don't think anyone else has really made any contributions since, so it's not really a big deal. Toa Nidhiki05 23:14, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Tireless Contributor Barnstar Hires.gif The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
For choosing to edit in places that are contentious, while maintaining your composure, and seeking the betterment of the overall project by ensuring neutrality of politically sensitive articles, I hereby present to you this barnstar. May it strengthen your resolve to continue to contribute in those difficult areas, where others may fear to tread. RightCowLeftCoast (Moo) 21:21, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks so much! I try. Toa Nidhiki05 23:59, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Tracy Lawrence[edit]

Why did you every single source on Tracy Lawrence? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 20:36, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

To prevent link rot. I was going to look at reviewing it later if I had time (saw your message on WikiProject Albums) but figured regardless that having every link checked and archived ahead of time would be helpful. Toa Nidhiki05 20:55, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Seems like overkill to wayback EVERY link though, doesn't it? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 21:55, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
Not really, there’s even an automated tool for it on the history page (“Fix dead links”).. I’ve been going back to modify some of my old GAs from six years ago and there were a fair number of dead links - some of which don’t have suitable replacements. It’s the best way to make sure the references stay functional forever, especially for a GA or FA - better fixing now than later, right? Toa Nidhiki05 21:59, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Tracy again[edit]

Think I've addressed everything you brought up in the GAN. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 03:09, 2 June 2019 (UTC)


Please stop stalking me and reverting whatever I add. In this instance[1], you removed peer-reviewed academic publications and expert assessments. You were warned about this in April 2019[2]. Snooganssnoogans (talk) 14:51, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

I reverted a change you made that was not accurate to what the sources said (namely, they did not find near-unanimous agreement on cost-effectiveness), and you corrected it - although it would have been better to go to the talk page, per WP:BRD, your change is exactly the change I suggested in the edit summary, and it’s why I thanked you for correcting the change. That’s how Wikipedia works.
And no, reverting errors is not “stalking”. Editors that follow politics tend to follow a wide variety of areas. I do not care about your “warning”. If you actually have an issue, report it to the appropriate noticeboard - otherwise quit with the bullshit accusations (which can in fact be harassment - see WP:AOHA).

A star[edit]

Just dropping by to give you a barnstar. I understand your feelings about the my interactions with another editor - certainly there is an ugly back and forth on the ANI. I just wanted to say that I hope that someday we work together for the good of the project! My best wishes to you

For contributions to the project and helping settle disputes! Lubbad85 () 15:05, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. I really hope you take a few things away from this - I had issues early on myself. Try to avoid conflict areas if you can, find stuff you are interested in and improve it, and in your case be very careful about copyvio. You’ve clearly got passion, you just should find somewhere you can really use it. AN/I really just makes everyone uncomfortable. :) Toa Nidhiki05 02:34, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the encouraging words! Good to meet you. And if I ever mention ANI - slap my face. That is like poking a bee hive! I will take a wikibreak soon, and collect myself. Happy editing! Lubbad85 () 16:31, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
    (talk page stalker)@Lubbad85: I can confirm that I stay away from AN/I as well. It's like the worst idea imaginable to go there (especially for new editors). –MJLTalk 00:12, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
It crushed my soul. I stayed off WP for about 5 days to collect myself. Life exists outside of the drama here. Lubbad85 () 02:34, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, Cork, Ireland
Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, Cork, Ireland

Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral is a Gothic Revival three-spire cathedral in the city of Cork, Ireland. It belongs to the Church of Ireland and was completed in 1879. The cathedral is located on the south side of the River Lee, on ground that has been a place of worship since the 7th century, and is dedicated to Finbarr of Cork, patron saint of the city. It was once in the Diocese of Cork; it is now one of the three cathedrals in the Church of Ireland Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, in the ecclesiastical province of Dublin. Christian use of the site dates back to a 7th-century AD monastery, which according to legend was founded by Finbarr of Cork. The entrances contain the figures of over a dozen biblical figures, capped by a tympanum showing a Resurrection scene. (more...)
