I didn't want to be too quick in rushing over here to say "great to see you back" - but now I see I am behind in the process! ChristensenMJ (talk) 23:28, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Good Ol'factory, you were greatly missed. Hopefully your health is doing considerably better now. In a world growing ever more busy and all the more crazy in so many aspects, particularly for those pages to which you have so greatly contributed in the past, your efforts are likely going to be needed now more than ever before. I understand you left for a health-related reason. Hopefully whatever you were dealing with has improved. I can't say this for certain, but I am reasonably confident I may be in the minority of editors who has a first-hand knowledge of how health can interfere with activity here. With all of that said, best wishes for your good health to be maintained going forward, and a very hearty and sincere welcome back to you. Keep up the great work! --Jgstokes (talk) 02:31, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Third opinion request at Enos (Book of Mormon prophet)Edit

Can I get a third opinion from you over at Enos (Book of Mormon prophet)? There's a disagreement whether an explicit statement is needed regarding the historicity of Enos, such as this. I argue that the "According to the BoM..." or "is a figure in the BoM" is sufficient for NPOV here at at most other BoM figure articles and the explicit statement boarders on needless POV-pushing. I do think such a statement is warranted on larger articles like Nephites or Lamanites where the historicity question for these topics explicitly appears in sources. The argument to not include such a statement is supported IMO by the lack of such a statement on biblical figure articles like Noah or Methuselah of similar historicity. This is also inline with the previous feedback at WT:RELIGION. Thanks. --FyzixFighter (talk) 18:31, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Serbian political parties: name changes and categoriesEdit

Hello. I notice that you've emptied "Category:Bosniak Democratic Union of Sandžak politicians" and "Category:New Democracy (Serbia) politicians". I understand your rationale for doing so, but it strikes me that this approach creates a problem, which I can perhaps best articulate with the following question: how should we account for someone who was a member of, say, New Democracy and who left the party before it was renamed as "Liberals of Serbia"? Categorizing them as a Liberals of Serbia politician doesn't strike me as quite on the mark. CJCurrie (talk) 04:46, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

That's fine with me if you think the previous approach is better. I wouldn't oppose a reversal. Good Ol’factory (talk) 23:19, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Abbreviated categoryEdit

Re [1], I apologise, and now think Armbrust was correct i.e. speedy moves can go ahead, as there was a recent RM for the main page.

As the proposals were exposed for 48 hours I think they could be processed forthwith (except the Directors category), if you would indicate here that you un-withdraw them. – Fayenatic London 08:56, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

That's fine, thanks. I will un-withdraw them and they can be processed. I don't really agree with keeping the one directors category different, which is why I hesitated and withdrew them all, thinking that consistency among all the categories would be preferable. But I suppose it's fine to process them. Good Ol’factory (talk) 23:43, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

China and TaiwanEdit

Hello! In this edit [2], flags which are mostly flags of the free nation of the Republic of China (Taiwan), a state rated 93/100 in freedom by Freedom House [3], a better score than the USA but below the score of Canada, were wantonly combined with those of the People's Republic of China, rated 10/100, on par with Cuba and Saudi Arabia, and being a state which, in its propaganda at least, seeks conquest of the smaller state. Is that the level of nuance we want in Wikipedia? China PRC has so few flags because of the existential requirements of the authoritarian dictatorship, which sees local flags as a potential threat to national unity and stability. On the other hand, Taiwan is a free, normal nation that has local flags. 1949 was a long time ago. Taiwan is Taiwan. Isn't that view more rational than the way the page is done now? If we seperate out the Taiwan flags, won't Wikipedia readers be able to find them in a more intuitive manner? Please let me know how you are thinking about this. 'Chinese characters' may be a better name for the group given that Chinese characters are used in several Chinese languages, Mandarin, Cantonese, etc. [4] Geographyinitiative (talk) 09:13, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

It's a controversial issue, as you have noted. I don't have a position on whether flags for China and Taiwan should be grouped together or separately. Good Ol’factory (talk) 00:34, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

National Monuments are neither buildings, structures, nor monuments or memorialsEdit

Please see the note on the above categories - United States National Monuments are not buildings or structures, and are not "monuments and memorials" by the category definition. They are protected areas. NorthBySouthBaranof (talk) 02:35, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

The categories are hidden and are primarily for maintenance, so I don't think a pedantic adherence to a specific definition is necessary for a Monument to be included in a category for monuments. I am not sure what definition you are referring to as Category:Wikipedia categories named after monuments and memorials does not have one. Good Ol’factory (talk) 02:48, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Please UNHIDE all these speedy discussions - I have given my oppose rationale, sometimes in some detail. Do I have to repeat it all again??? This is disreputable. Johnbod (talk) 02:58, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

They are not hidden; they are in drop-down boxes. (Subtle, I know.) I don't think it's too onerous for a user to click a button to see the (sometimes repetitive) speedy discussion. Including speedy discussions in this way is pretty standard, so I don't think it's in any way disreputable, of all things. You can repeat yourself or not in the full discussion; it's up to you. I have full confidence that the closers will read everything in the nominations and discussions, including the content in the drop-down boxes. Good Ol’factory (talk) 03:01, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
Nonsense - I DO think it is too onerous, & I don't have ANY confidence that those participating will all read my rationale. You have taken the opportunity to give a long spiel with YOUR arguments, but have just hidden mine. I'm astonished you can't see the issue here. Why the hell do I have to repeat myself? - you've copied my comments, but gone to the extra trouble of hiding them. It's about as "subtle" as a Florida Electoral Commission. Johnbod (talk) 03:35, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
You seem pretty worked up about this. I think we'll leave it there. I'm generally pretty tolerant, but do not change the text that I write in a nomination. You're free to duplicate your comments in your own text if you are worried about them being hidden, just don't change how I format the nomination I start.
