Proposed deletion of Stefan SchaalEdit


The article Stefan Schaal has been proposed for deletion. The proposed deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.


Um, did you mean to blank the entire article here? Thegreatluigi (talk) 13:46, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

No, I don't know what happened there, and I've never seen anything like that before. I previewed the changes, they looked good, and I saved it. Thanks for letting me know. Chris the speller yack 13:51, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

de-italicizing of Latin phrasesEdit

I am curious as to why you are de-italicizing phrases such as magna cum laude and summa cum laude, in apparent contradiction to Wikipedia:Text formatting § Foreign terms. Fabrickator (talk) 21:13, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Because they are not foreign phrases. If you keep reading the guideline, the fourth paragraph says "Loanwords or phrases that have been assimilated into and have common use in English, such as praetor, Gestapo, samurai, esprit de corps, e.g., i.e., etc., do not require italicization. ... If looking for a good rule of thumb, do not italicize words that appear in Merriam-Webster Online." These all appear in Merriam-Webster Online. Chris the speller yack 21:21, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Redirect categoriesEdit

Just letting you know that we place redirect categories such as {{R from misspelling}} below redirects to avoid breaking them. I have fixed the redirects you tagged, but just know this for the future. Jalen Folf (talk) 16:46, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

I'm glad you educated me. Chris the speller yack 00:44, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

October 2020Edit

  Please do not use styles that are unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles, as you did in Episcopal Church (United States). There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Per MOS:JOBTITLES, please do not reduce to lowercase specific titles such as "Archbishop of Canterbury". Elizium23 (talk) 04:13, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

@Elizium23: The MOS says a title is capitalized only "When a formal title for a specific entity (or conventional translation thereof) is addressed as a title or position in and of itself, is not plural, is not preceded by a modifier (including a definite or indefinite article), and is not a reworded description:" Note especially "is not preceded by a modifier". I changed "current Archbishop", which is modified. Chris the speller yack 04:30, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
@Elizium23: Now that you have had time to reexamine the MoS, should you not go back to the articles you changed and restore the capitalization to the style used by WIkipedia? Chris the speller yack 20:00, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Wheaton Precious Metals UpdatesEdit

Hi Chris,

I see that you are an active member of Wikipedia and have updated Franco Nevada's page recently. I am looking for someone to help me update the information on the Wheaton Precious Metals page, I unfortunately cannot as there is a conflict of interest. The information on the Wheaton page is very out of date, i've highlighted potential changes below:

The key information box on the right incorrectly has Wheaton listed on the Frankfurt stock exchange, this should be removed and replaced with the London Stock Exchange (the company listed on 28th October 2020, link to the press release here:

The article has the wrong President & CEO. Randy Smallwood is the President and CEO and Douglas Holtby is the Chairman of the Board, please see a link to the management team here:

The financial info is from 2013 in the grey box at the top of the article. As of 2020 half year results they now sit at:

Revenue US$247.954 mil (2020) Net income US$105.812 mil (2020) Total assets US$180.275 mil (2020) Total equity US$5.516 (2020)

Please see their half year 2020 results here for reference:

Would you be able to update this? I'm not sure what the Wikipedia guidelines are on this so please do let me know if this is not possible.

Thank you for complying with Wikipedia's policy on paid contributions, and for your interest in keeping Wikipedia's content accurate. You should make this request on the article's talk page (Talk:Wheaton Precious Metals). My expertise is not in establishing what is a reliable source of information, but more in the area of spelling, grammar, punctuation, format and capitalization.
