Reaganomics (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) My dispute request is in regard to the article Reaganomics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia at

I have read numerous other articles on the Internet that define the impact of Reaganomics far differently than is defined in this article. I almost religiously use Wikipedia as a credible source for any facts I want to look up or that I need the answers to as I believe does the majority of the Internet population. Because of these discrepancies I normally would have given Wikipedia the first priority for believability but then I noticed that two of the principle references for this article are the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute. Both are basically funded and owned by the Koch brothers. When I hear the term "think tank" in conjunction with politically active entities I am reminded of an entity with a special agenda that comes up with ideas to successfully cultivate other people to adopt their way of thinking. This approach can be used for both good and bad depending on the intent of the author relative to the information provided. I am not convinced that the Cato Institute supplied accurate information to describe the success of Reaganomics. I believe their goal is to create a model representing a successful economic program so they can use that model to advance their own self interests. But I also believe the model they have created does not reflect reality but rather is a tampered model that will allow them to convince others to adopt policies that are self-serving and beneficial to no one but the principle authors of that model. Given the state of the current economy and the number of people referencing this model on Wikipedia that believe the model to be a formula for success, I feel it is ultimately important to review the Wikipedia article on this subject and compare it to others that are reporting a different story. There are many links on the web that one might go to and, provided it is not a conservative web page, one is apt to find many conflicting points of supposed facts. I will paste in two of those links but there are many, many more such links that one can find by doing an Internet search. (talk) 01:25, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

This is not a dispute as you haven't discussed anything with anybody. You need to discuss this at the discussion page for the article, Talk:Reaganomics. Jezhotwells (talk) 08:15, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Translated text still under copyright?

I was looking at the new pages and found the page Archobarzane. However upon a quick google I also found this website [1] of which the page is a direct copy save for the fact it has been translated into English. Surely there is some copyright issue here but I'm not certain? Nonetheless it might appear that it has been incorrectly referenced. Reichsfürst (talk) 13:16, 3 July 2011 (UTC

Vermina by the same editor is just a paraphrase of a presumably out of copyright book here [2]. Ironically it says Vermina is the last king but Archobarzane's article has him as king after Vermina. In any case the name is not the way it's spelled in English (probably because he's relying on a translation0, the English versionof the name is Ariobarzanes which gives us some sources in English [3] so copyvio aside the article needs to be moved and disambiguated as there are other kings by that name.

Help with judgement of the appropriateness of a link.

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 18:09, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Charles Bukowski (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Dear Editor, The page editor and I have a disagreement on the appropriateness of a link. The link I proposed is The editor says it is a fanpage. While I agree there are elements of a fanpage I think that it is so rich in information that can't be found elsewhere that it would be a valuable addition to the Wikipedia page. I've read the rules on fanpages including the "Ignore the rules" page. It seems like this is a judgement call so I'm wondering how I might approach the disagreement, or if you feel that the editor is right to discard the link. Thanks for your help. Langegg (talk) 19:21, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

It's not just bands that have fanpages; and unless you can establish that this page's editor is a recognized Bukowski scholar, I'm afraid I too would vote "remove." --Orange Mike | Talk 20:26, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

How would you determine "recognized"? By whom? It's seems like it could be a quite relative restriction. Langegg (talk) 17:30, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

WP:ELNO has a list of links that should be avoided. From what I can see, this one might fall under #2. This is because of the very unlikely and unsourced "quotes" at the bottom of the site's main page. Links on Wikipedia are generally expected to have a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. That the very first page has such unlikely quotes ("I get all of my ideas from transvestite prostitutes and" - Lady Gaga) I would say the website is inappropriate, at best. - SudoGhost 18:24, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I understand what you're saying. It's just unfortunate since it has so much information not on any other websites, such as original manuscripts, the largest database of poems, and the most complete checklist of his works. A link to the page is identified by his publisher (HarperCollins) as an official website and there's also a link from the other official website identified by HarperCollins (at I'm really not trying to be a pest; it's just that I really think the site is a valuable resource. I hope I'm not coming across badly. Langegg (talk) 23:41, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, you just need to understand that Wikipedia does not regard fan-sites as reliable sources, regardless of what others may think. Jezhotwells (talk) 08:17, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Makes sense. Langegg (talk) 11:45, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Looks like an at least reasonably (real world) reliable source of information, and more than just a fan site. But it is mysterious and lacks wp:rs credentials, as do many sources in Wikipedia. My opinion: don't ban it from the article, but don't rely heavily on it as a source. North8000 (talk) 12:20, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

issue with the intro to this article on :

"BoCoCa is an umbrella term for three neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York. The actual neighborhood BoCoCa does not exist. It is an invention of real-estate agents and developers, and is used as a tool to gentrify Crown Heights."

BoCoCa is the area situated below downtown Brooklyn, Crown Heights is located further east and is separated by several neighborhoods. The statement I suppose is saying that the use of such umbrella terms by real-estate agents and developers is used as a tool for gentrifying other places such as Crown Heights. However "Crown Heights" is no such term either. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:29, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

I need help at the Richard Webster article. An IP address recently changed the article to state that Webster was deceased; I reverted, because the information was unsourced, but I have checked and it would appear that Webster has indeed died recently. His death was reported here, in the Oxford Mail. I'm asking for help because I'm not sure how to handle situations when a BLP subject has died, or what the correct procedure is for updating the article to reflect this. (I did notify Artoasis about this here, but she appears to be busy, and I'd like to get this dealt with ASAP.) Polisher of Cobwebs (talk) 20:37, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Update it, add the sources, add him to Category:2011 deaths and remove him from Category:Living people. It's really no more complicated than any other edit. (While you're at it, add his date of birth, if it's in any of the articles.) --Orange Mike | Talk 21:02, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
The only reason I asked for assistance is that I've seen cases in the past where there have been disputes over whether someone was dead or not, and discussions of how many sources were required to establish the fact of their death. I wanted to be quite sure of avoiding a similar kind of situation here. If a single source is acceptable here, that's all I really need to know. Polisher of Cobwebs (talk) 21:08, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Kathmandu (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

I have tried to help and edit the Template:Kathmandu article, especially since it is very long and hard to navigate. Such efforts I have made include setting up a gallery (because there are alot of photos) as well as removing duplicated photos. Also some parts of the Kathmandu page have links to full pages on that subject, however it is the same thing, as if copied and pasted. Even though I have tried to summarize, create photo gallery, etc a user (Dr. Blofeld) has continued to undo my edits (which have taken many many hours). I have even noticed that another user has tried to undo 'Dr. Blofelds reverting of my edits, however Dr. Blofeld wont stop.

Can a book based on a special collection of Wikipedia articles be listed in the "See also" section of a related Wiki article?

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 19:12, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Dear Editors, We have a current debate with User:Seewolf, see the Section "why it is not quotable?" at his talk page: [4]. Can you please help with your advise to resolve this dispute? What triggered this debate is that the "See also" section of the Kish cypher Wiki article listed a recent book "Kish cypher" which is available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, and some other internet bookshops. User:Seewolf deleted this book listing by saying that it is "non-quotable" even though the book was not quoted but listed in the "See also" section, as an extra, hard-copy-type source of information. We started a discussion and we could not reach an agreement, see the talk page shown above. In my opinion, books that are special collections of Wikipedia articles should be allowed to be listed in the "See also" sections of related wiki articles. It is important to note that "See also" sections are not numbered references (not "quotes") to support claims made in the Wiki articles; they are rather informing the reader about other available sources of information. Publishing such a special selection book of Wiki articles can actually be very useful for those who are not regularly using computers, or for those, who prefer reading a hard-copy collection of related Wiki articles instead of browsing the internet. In conclusion: User:Seewolf claims that Wikipedia is not a reliable source thus such a book of Wikipedia-collections should not be quoted. My answer: First of all, the book was not quoted because listing it in the "See also" section is not a quotation. Secondly, if the Wikipedia articles are so non-reliable as User:Seewolf claims, then how can a Wikipedia article be quoted by another Wiki article? In my opinion, the fact that such a special-collection book exists, which has the same title as the actual Wiki article, is a relevant information and its listing (not "quoting") is useful in the "See also" section of that Wiki article, as alternative/optional source of information. Can you help to clarify the issue? Thanks, Fluctuator (talk) 22:23, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Due to the copyright rules, there is nothing we can do to prevent properly-acknowledged hard-copy printing of Wikipedia articles, but there is no reason whatsoever to encourage this dubious practice. £49.55 for 142 pages of text you can get for free?

Right. Furthermore, see also sections are only for internal links to Wikipedia articles. See WP:SEEALSO. A book would belong in a further reading section, but if the whole book is copied from Wikipedia then there is no "further" reading compared to our fine system of wikilinked terms, see also sections, categories, navigation templates, search box and so on. There are more than 150,000 of these books with copies of Wikipedia articles, and they appear to be computer generated. A couple of "editors" at the publisher don't have time to do actual editing of that many books, so I strongly suspect their organization gives no advantage over Wikipedia itself. PrimeHunter (talk) 02:00, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing your opinions. Yes, if Wikipedia rules prohibit listing such a special collection book of Wiki articles then it is a different matter. Then User:Seewolf is right. A final note: I checked out the book and went through it; it was edited by some deep-thinker experts because the wiki articles in it reflect a good taste in linking those collected articles and topics. These articles are not linked within Wiki thus the 140 pages book is not a futile effort because it provides more info than Wiki due bounding the originally non-linked articles together. Maybe, other such books are poor, but this is a good synergism. Thanks.Fluctuator (talk) 14:13, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Brain stem death

Brain stem death (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

The entire article on brain stem death has been written by a medical doctor who does not accept the idea of a brain based definition of human death, which is now prevalent throughout the world. He is very passionate about the subject and has no familiarity with Wikipedia concepts concerning neutrality, original research, balance, etc.

Even if you are not knowledgeable about the topic, please read the final discussion section of the talk page, in which the nature of the problem becomes very apparent. The author and I have discussed the issue courteously, but I fear there can be no possible agreement.

Halls of residence at University College London

Answered: Danger (talk) 18:46, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi! So I have an issue in terms of duplicate content. The article Halls of residence at University College London contains information on Ramsay Hall and James Lighthill House. Both of those articles also have their own page. This would normally not be an issue, but the content of these articles is literally entirely the same as what is on the larger page. Obviously this isn't logical; there's no reason to have the same information scattered around multiple pages and also condensed into one. The logical solution here would be to simply redirect these pages; no content at all would need to be deleted, since the information is already duplicated.

However, there is an editor who has been arguing for a while that, since this came out of an AfD as no consensus to delete, the article "deserves" to stay on it's own page. I've tried to explain that this is not the case and that the information is not being deleted, but I've been unsuccessful so far. It just frustrates me when Wikipedia becomes more about getting the maximum number of pages or "winning" AfDs rather than making it the best and most efficient and logical source for a reader. I've started a discussion at Talk:Ramsay_Hall#Duplicated_content, but any help or advice on the matter (or on how similar cases have been resolved in the past) would be much appreciated. Thanks!--Yaksar (let's chat) 19:52, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

The halls of residence page should probably be set up as a list, with a limited amount of information on each hall. See List of houses and associated buildings by John Douglas for a rough example. Then each notable residence hall should have its own page. It looks like these have already been created. If there aren't enough residence halls to warrant a separate list, then the list should probably be incorporated somewhere "upstream" if you will (though it's possible that the residence system itself warrants having the article). --Danger (talk) 20:09, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
In theory, that makes sense. These, however, are university dorms, not buildings by a very famous architect. The notability of the subjects was strongly questioned in their AfDs (hell, "Coldplay lived there, so it's notable" was given as an argument), and there certainly won't be even that for most dorms. ::These two are probably at the "peak" of notability for dorms at this school; if we trimmed down the info on them on the larger page, there wouldn't be much left.--Yaksar (let's chat) 20:17, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
But the issue I'm really worried about now, since I doubt anyone is going to make the effort to change it all up anytime soon, is the duplication of content. I'm still trying to find the logical reasoning behind leaving them separate right now. Hell, if something new comes up that would make it take up more of the list space then it should, sure, split them again, but right now it just looks stupid.--Yaksar (let's chat) 20:19, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
The information would be left on the two's article pages, but only minimal information would be left on the main page. Does that make sense? A summary stays on the main article and details go on the separate page.
Wrt your first point, clearly not every residence hall on the list is going to meet notability. If you notice, each of the buildings on the example list I showed you has maybe a sentence or two as description, even if not notable, which certainly can be coughed up for pretty much any residence hall. The idea is to make the list of residence halls look like that example. Danger (talk) 20:25, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

de.wikipedia apparently has the norms about citation that we had circa 2006: articles must have references, but inline citations are rarely required and only for extraordinary or surprising claims. For example, today's "Artikel des Tages" has 2 inline citations, whereas its featured English counterpart has over 40. (Interestingly, this is our official verifiability policy, but norms at FA have led to us requiring a cite on nearly every sentence. Or that's my theory.)
So I think there's a culture clash here, where when you ask for "references" you mean inline citations and xe interprets that as simply asking for general references, which are bountiful. I'm not sure there's ownership as much as frustration; from the point of view that I think Tasma has, your requests probably seem as nonsensical as asking for more text because there are no words in the article. --Danger (talk) 02:11, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
Really? Took a few randomized examples:
Necessary to continue? Referencing every paragraph or even every sentence doesn't bring more quality but a high risk of copyright problems. There must be a chance for a authors work. I guess Ukexpat work is just formalism. As a few of his comments clearly show, he did not notice the contents or the structure of the article. This used two main sources and a few others around to show that we don't have a unknown theory. If you compare the sources with the article, you will find everything in the sources. This should be enough. Think somebody, who wants to check a source should be able to read more than a single paragraph of it. -- Tasma3197 (talk) 07:27, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
You'll find no disagreement here. I think your analysis is pretty much spot on. Here at en.wikipedia, we look for the little boxes at the end of the sentences as arbiters of truth. (No slur against you, ukexpat. That's the first thing I look at when assessing and sometimes the last. Which en.wikipedian can claim otherwise?) And unsurprisingly, copyright issues, especially close paraphrasing, are rampant, since facts can't be combined into nicely flowing, original sentences, but instead must be taken directly from a single source to be neatly cited at the end. But hey, I just work here.
But anyway, I think now you understand what was being asked for. I reread our verifiability policy to check. You technically need inline citations on anything likely to be challenged. What constitutes "likely to be challenged" is... undefined. Danger (talk) 08:19, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

Council Grounds for the Cherokee Nation, located in Bradley County, TN, prior to the forced removal

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 23:57, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

In the articles that I have read regarding the Cherokee people and the Trail of Tears-there is little mention of the contribution of the members of the cherokee people that have been somewhat classified as "The people from Over the Hill. There is little mention of the Council Grounds for the Cherokee Nation, located in Bradley County, TN, or its significance within Cherokee culture, as a whole; and, in particular regard to the Trail of Tears. Can you help correct these omissions? Also, even though the Cherokee descendents of Bradley County, TN are not recognized as a nation, or within any Cherokee nation, to my knowlegde-we are still here. There was some recognition in 1984, when the Eastern and Western Nations reunited at the Council Grounds, in Bradley County, TN.

The page about Jesse Liberty (me) was deleted on the third attempt, after having been posted for a number of years, and with less than 2/3 of the folks participating voting to delete (in any case, few participated).

Is there a process for reconsideration or restoration? I honestly don't see why, for example, the page about Charles Petzold is considered reasonable and my page is not, given that we write to the same general audience, have similar sales numbers, have a similar number of books and articles, etc.

It's a mess -> Category: Japanese Science Fiction Films

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 23:57, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

I find this film index frustrating because it has a mixture of feature-length animated films and feature films with no clue to differ them. I'm not interested in animated films, but I have to click on every title to find whether it's a feature film, not an animated film. I checked other specific-country SF films indexes to see if it's same there and none of them has animated films listed. Why is Japanese SF film index an exception?

French: German: American: British:

There are a lot of Japanese SF feature films missing from the index, too. Summer Time Machine Blues (2005), Gantz (2011), Time Slip (1979), 20th Century Boys 1 & 2 (2008 & 2009), The Clone Returns Home (2009), The Face of Another (1966) and many more for example. How do I insert these films in the index? Do I have to go to each film page and insert the category notation in the footer? Thank you. 0zero9nine (talk) 01:11, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

I think there just aren't all that many animated scifi movies outside of Japan. It may be worth making a subcategory, Category:Japanese animated science fiction films. See here for more information about categories. As far as I know, you do have to insert the category into each film page, but you can activate a gadget called HotCat (it's in your preferences menu next to your username at the top of the screen) that makes this pretty painless.

My Cage images

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 02:01, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

I was given permission by the owner to post several images from the My Cage comic on the Wiki commons section for use in the My Cage Wiki.

I have an email from the owner to myself detailing that this is a free license (I'm guessing at the term) to post and distribute on your site without permission to alter any further than I have.

Because there are currently 9 images, I was hoping to have them all approved before I look to alter the MyCageWiki ( to improve the page.

Can you tell me the best way to do this, as yesterday I was banned (for just cause, and I don't at all mind the events) but reinstated once I explained the situation. I would rather not have to make more work for you all than needed. And deal with all the images at once. I will have another half dozen once these are added and displayed on your site, and would like to know the best, least cumbersome means.

Ryan :: Icthulu (talk) 15:23, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
We cannot use pictures under a 'conditional' release like that, unfortunately. Wikipedia is designed to be free, for any use, any purpose. Therefore, all images with very few, special exceptions must be free for any use too.
As I'm sure you are aware, lots of other websites re-use Wikipedia articles - and some of those sites carry adverts. That counts as 'commercial use', and that's one reason we insist on the free licence conditions.
The only alternative is "Fair use of a non-free image", but that is complicated, and it is hard to show why a specific cartoon image would meet those requirements (such as, "Respect for commercial opportunities", "Minimal usage", "Minimal extent of use", "Contextual significance" etc) and, 9 images would certainly be problematic. The one existing non-free image, File:My cage logo 200711.png, is probably about as far as we could go.
I'm sorry I can't be more positive. But I do hope you can work on the article in other ways; the lack of footnotes is the more important editorial concern, at present.  Chzz  ►  03:05, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Bradley Manning

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 02:02, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Hello there,

I hope this is the right avenue for this! It appears that someone keeps reverting Bradley Manning's dual citizenship status in the information box to the right of his Wikipedia page. The body of the article text (Bradley Manning#Complaints about detention, government response) includes references to that dual nationality status, which has been confirmed by a Foreign Office Minister on the floor of the House of Commons - I can certainly supply more if required.

I would appreciate some assistance here; the real-life consequences of having innacurate information on wikipedia are actually quite serious.



Auerfeld (talk) 12:09, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

(There was nothing about dual citizenship at the link you provided.) The first step would be to provide suitable sourcing and a citation with your addition. BTW, this can be done in an info box. And there is nothing that says that such a statement needs to be in the info box; it can be in the body of the article. Actually, it probably should be in the body of the article because that statement would probably need other qualifying verbiage to go with it. Then, if there is a difference of opinion, to have a discussion of the particulars and points on the talk page. (It doesn't look like such has yet occurred) If that doesn't resolve it, there are other steps that can be taken. Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 02:01, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Auerfeld, I certainly didn't mean to criticise that you'd asked here - or to form any opinion of right/wrongness. Just that, matters like this often spread out over many different noticeboards, which doesn't help reach agreement. There's plenty of folks actively discussing it, now, on Talk:Bradley Manning - and that's the best place.

Fake article

Answered: Jezhotwells (talk) 02:03, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Whilst carrying out category maintenance, I came across this (User:BigEveArc/sandbox) userpage. I disabled the categories on it as per guidelines about userpages not appearing in the main categories and I added the userpage template to the top of it, and left an explanation in the edit summary. The user removed the template and re-enabled the categories. I repeated my edits and left a note on the user's discussion page to explain why. The user has reverted my edits and re-enabled the categories again.

At best it points towards an intransigent user, at worst it points towards being a deliberate attempt to create a fake article.

I see that another editor has re-done the edits [7], and warned the user again [8]. BigEveArc (talk · contribs) has not edited since then, so for now it's best to just see what happens. Hopefully, no further action will be required.
If it does continue to be a problem, then I'd suggest one more warning, probably {{uw-disruptive3}}, and if that failed, it'd be worth reporting on WP:ANI. - But, I emphasize, I hope that won't be necessary.
We could add a {{NOINDEX}} to the page, but I think it's best to let it be, and see what the user does next.
