How to examine if a website is reliable source or not?
I added a citation in Tourism in Nepalfrom thepronotes.com which you said is an unreliable source. How to exactly know what is a reliable source? thrpronotes.com is one of the leading educational portal from Nepal which contents are reviewed by researchers and teachers. So, isn't it a valid source?
Sir, I politely informed you that the dedicated website to Otto H. Kahn and his family link that I included on the Otto H. Kahn wikipedia page has additional information and pictures of the subject and his immediate family that is not included on the Wikipedia page and would be invaluable for students or general researchers of the subject. Your failure to understand this, leaves me to regard your actions to remove the link, not once, but twice, as misguided and incorrect. It is a dedicated website to Otto Kahn and his family. How it can have no relevance to the Wikipedia page for Otto H. Kahn I fail to see. I can point you in the direction of thousands of Wikipedia pages that all have associated external links to websites that deal directly with the subject matter. Your twice removal of the link I added therefore warrants me to wonder if this is a form of internet bullying? I understand you have no right to remove a link without having an open discussion about the matter beforehand. This you did not do. You went ahead and removed the link upon your own decision, nobody elses. I therefore expect you to return the link. If you fail to do so, it will leave me with no option but to lodge a complaint.
please elaborate on what you mean by "broken tweet", i saw nothing wrong with what was written, i dont think it linked to twitter.
Your submission at Articles for creation: No More Jockeys (June 17)
Hi. This is Greg Walsh. I made the edit to the ^ degrees of Kevin Bacon to remove Chirstian Gardener. We work for Endless Games and specifically with Brian Turtle. One of hte creatorsof the game. No one has any idea who Christian Gardener is. There are only 3 creators of the game. Youc an even see the interview form the Jon Stewart Show of the three men who created the game. My source is Brian Turtle himself. Im not that great with managing Wikipedia so if you can email directly, firstname.lastname@example.org or even call 203-216-6101 that'd be really helpful. thank you.
With respect to BB gun The one link was not intentional in the markup (thanks for catching it), and the other is clearly a reference cited in APA format, along with being similar in nature to the pre-existing reference, and as such is NOT spam. If you wish to dispute the fact that a cited reference qualifies as a reference, or to remove a reference for some reason or another, you should leave a message on the article Talk page and the appropriate User Page, NOT claim that it is "spam" as a means to be "lazy" with respect to being citing applicable wikipedia policy to support your contentions. I have therefore modified your revision on that article appropriately. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:39, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
Please Stop Edit Warring
Please stop edit warring with respect to the article at BB gun. The purpose of the given citation is with respect to a demonstration of FPS in actual practice. The link was clearly NOT inserted for commercial purposes, and your continue accusations of WP:Spame are baseless and without foundaton. If you feel this is not correct, you can leave a remark on the article talk page and let soemone else do the edit. If you continue to edit war, you will be subject to the appropriate reporting and proceedings. Again, please STOP. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:01, 1 July 2021 (UTC)
Boy, you really fouled up the Milkshaking article. I did NOT add "original research" to the article, but rather general knowledge. The piece DOES need some sort of mention that riot-thrown "milkshakes" often contain more than milkshake. The piece DOES need some sort of mention that riot-thrown "milkshakes" often have results other than wet hair and clothes. NONE of this is "original research". These are important facts which you thoughtlessly deleted. Please fix your mistake. 11:47, 9 July 2021 (UTC)KyZan — Preceding unsigned comment added by KyZan (talk • contribs)
Regarding Auto Clicker Edits
As a responsible Wikipedia user, I added vital information on the wiki page about Auto Clicker. The page really needed valuable content for the readers such as Applications and popular auto clicker software which I added. Regarding the reference spam, I do not own the website I linked nor I am affiliated to it. I simply searched for the popular auto clicker software and cited the first link from Google. I strongly believe that all my edits are adding value to this page for the readers and should be restored. I also plan to add more content to this page but wanted to clarify this with you first. Hope you understand that Wikipedia is for the readers to have the best information available on the internet.
Hi, I believe the information I added in the article is repeated from the "Model" section, where it is cited. Per Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Lead_section#Citations, it's not necessary to repeat redundant citations in the body of the article within the lead. Thanks. -- 17jiangz1 (talk) 09:10, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
- @17jiangz1: Thanks for clarifying, I see what you're referring to now. If you're changing figures in a sentence which already has a citation, I guess it's clearer to add another source, or to drop the one that's there. I'll sort it out. --Lord Belbury (talk) 09:22, 22 July 2021 (UTC)
I recently edited the choking article to clarify that latex balloons are the leading cause of choking death for children among the choking deaths in which children choke on children's products. This is included in the article cited in this section: "Of all children's products, latex balloons are the leading cause of choking death, and most of these fatalities are among children younger than 6 years."
Article cited: https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/125/3/601
- @MattmanCastle: You're right, I was reading the wrong section there, the one that puts the figure at 29% unqualified. My apologies. I've added this back to the article. --Lord Belbury (talk) 14:28, 31 July 2021 (UTC)
Tonk (card game)
I have posted some follow-up at Talk:Tonk_(card_game)#Stefancic_reference as you requested.
By all means reinstate the source if it is warranted, and if there is some level of confidence that it does mentions the card game, despite the apparent subject nature of the book being about critical race theory. Gregorytopov (talk) 07:41, 11 August 2021 (UTC)
- I've found an alternate source which refers to the game as "Tunk", and have provided that, without removing the Stefancic reference.Gregorytopov (talk) 01:03, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

Taking the knee
Dear, your ideological left wing leaning edit of taking the knee does not support statement it is for people with different political views. Furthermore, you deleting facts that is widely promoted by ideologists on the woke and left side of the story and media. Which doesn’t reflect the neutrality on the topic— Preceding unsigned comment added by 2a02:c7f:b44b:1600:3d69:556f:5118:2775 (talk • contribs)

Hi LB and thank you for your continued improvements to games articles. I think we just need to be careful that in trying to solve one problem (gender neutral sensitivities) we don't introduce another (confusion over who is meant). I'm not against singular "they, them, their" but my experience of trying to minimise the use of "he" etc, especially in card game articles, is that it can result in a lack of clarity e.g. "the dealer deals three cards to each player, face down. They then pick up their cards and may exchange them with the talon." Are we talking about all the players now or just the dealer? Most card game compendia, in English or German, use "he", but apologetically explain in the intro that this is for clarity and brevity only and that they intend it to be inclusive. One female author uses "he" and "she" in referring to specific players which works quite well. But this is Wikipedia and we don't set the rules. I usually try to minimise the use of "he" or "she" by recasting the sentence or by pluralising it where that makes sense e.g. "players, in turn, may reveal their cards..." This goes a long way to avoiding gender specific words, but there are some sentences that are almost impossible to recast, so as an absolute last resort I may go for "his or her" provided there are no more than one or two occurrences in the article. It's all quite faffy; much easier in the old days when people were educated to understand that sometimes "him" was a male pronoun and sometimes a "neuter" one. But that understanding's been lost to all but the older generation who can't understand what all the fuss is about! Cheers. Bermicourt (talk) 17:04, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
- @Bermicourt: Thanks for taking the time to pick up after me on this one: I do try to keep the clarity in mind on these articles and appreciate the scope for confusion when explaining a game, but clearly took my eye off the ball in a few places there (and didn't even mention it in the edit summary!). Appreciate your skill at picking out the cases where recasting and/or the passive voice can save us from having to use any pronoun at all, I'll keep that in mind in future. --Lord Belbury (talk) 17:18, 3 September 2021 (UTC)
Odeon Luxe Haymarket
Hi, can you check out my comment on the talk page of this article please - you've managed to get two completely different cinemas muddled up. The current cinema is what used to be the Odeon Panton Street, a short walk from but completely different from the old Odeon Haymarket (formerly the Gaumont) which closed down in about 1996-7. You can find photos of both online easily enough.
I'm surprised nobody has picked up on it in the two years since you made your edit, but there you are. It's probably better if you fix it rather than me if you take an interest in these things. Regards,Paulturtle (talk) 00:43, 22 September 2021 (UTC)
