Niagara FallsEdit

Hi there, I'm viewing it on a wide-screen and the image placement may look different. I tried to avoid sandwiching but there's a ton of photos. I also tried to place them chronologically by date. Do we need to pull some photos? Thanks! Magnolia677 (talk) 15:26, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Just cant sandwich text. side by each never works.--Moxy 🍁
Even when I make my screen more narrow, this photo pokes into the next section. It needs to be moved up to the bottom of the previous picture. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 15:31, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
Poking a bit into the next section for a few screens is much better then sandwiched text for all. Best solution would be to add more text to the section over image removal. Fits fine for me on 62 inch TV ..21 inch monitor ..7.5 inch tab...and 5 inch iPhone.--Moxy 🍁 15:34, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm going to move it to the bottom of the previous picture. No sandwiching and less encroachment. Magnolia677 (talk) 15:46, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Concerning these edits:Edit

You have recently made edits to the lead sections of these articles concerning human rights, either removing mentions of human rights or deemphasizing them. I believe that it is necessary to emphasize problematic human rights situations in countries in lead sections, as has already be done in articles such as Eritrea, Saudi Arabia, and China. The human rights previously listed in the Egypt article are not "random examples"; suppression/repression of religious groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and of minority groups like Coptic Christians along with other forms of opposition have been prominent characteristics of Egypt's human rights situation, and are prominently mentioned in the article's human rights section. Other prominent characteristics include pervasive censorship and problematic women's rights#Modern status. --DeathTrain (talk) 14:19, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

WikiProject Countries examplesEdit

Hi Moxy, while I agree with your addition, I think it is better practice to link to specific versions of articles than just the articles themselves. Both those articles have not been through the FA process for about a decade, so is there a specific version you had in mind? Or are examples needed at all for such a general statement? CMD (talk) 04:26, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

They are the 2 examples used all the time because of the scrutiny they receive from our members.--Moxy 🍁 04:38, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
I've used them too, but there's no guarantee any quality article will last. Would simply the current versions serve? CMD (talk) 05:40, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Sure i guess.--Moxy 🍁 05:41, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Stuffing leads with redundant details?Edit

I've noticed you have been stuffing the WP:LEADs of COVID articles per-province with details so content can be directly transcluded elsewhere. It seems good in theory but compromises the format and structure of the article, by forcing the articles to include too much frontloading of details that had previously been provided in a summary form in order to necessitate transclusion. ViperSnake151  Talk  20:00, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Province articles completely out of date. Was going to start to review redundancy....but when doing this noticed the lead is not the main problem with the articles. Will start reviews shortly. Fell free to jump in to help updates..process done in this manner not because of wIsh to have same material but to move without loss of info. But the faCT most articles are months out of date will take a bit of time.--Moxy 🍁 23:52, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Error in reverting Colorado editsEdit

I believe you have made an error in reverting my Colorado entry edits. I have relied on a number of sources for those edits, but have not yet further edited the entry to show them. I will do that.

Please advise about appealEdit

I would like to appeal your unilateral decision to revert my edits to the Colorado entry. They are factually accurate and will be supported by sources as soon when I can finish making that edit. I do not understand why you would have veto power over edits in any case. Please advise how your actions can be appealed to appropriate decisionmakers at Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by COScienceWriter07 (talkcontribs) 00:07, 9 November 2020 (UTC) ,--Moxy 🍁 00:39, 9 November 2020 (UTC)WP:BURDEN.

ANI noticeEdit

  There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is Reversion of my edits to Colorado entry. Thank you. —Tenryuu 🐲 ( 💬 • 📝 ) 00:43, 9 November 2020 (UTC)


Now that you've reverted the edit to the Colorado page that I was working on, I cannot supply the sources. So, basically, you terminated my ongoing work in the middle of it getting done, which was not really very thoughtful, and have said to me very clearly that I should not waste my time with Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by COScienceWriter07 (talkcontribs) 01:01, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

Help:Referencing for beginners may be helpful. Your edit is not lost and can be retrieved.--Moxy 🍁 02:26, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
I can find no obvious place where the edit that you reverted is located. -- COScienceWriter07 10:18 MST, 24 November 2020

WikiProject Joe BidenEdit

Hello! You did so much great work on the structure of WikiProject COVID-19. If you're interested, we'd appreciate similar support at the newly formed WikiProject Joe Biden. Ether way, thanks again for all your work and happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:09, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Sure thing....will look this weekend.--Moxy 🍁 04:25, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Would you like to help me?Edit

Would you like to help me in my good article review for Stephen Fuchs? Right cite (talk) 04:02, 17 November 2020 (UTC)


Hey, thanks for taking the time to read Panda Bar massacre. If you're referring to the names of the six people who were detained in your edit, they're all mentioned in the full report by Balkan Insight, but I didn't add them for BLP reasons. --Maleschreiber (talk) 01:54, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Sorry typo....."how" were they tortured.--Moxy 🍁 01:57, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
The report has details about that too [1], but I'm not too sure if they should be added on wikipedia.--Maleschreiber (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Ref nameEdit

Hi Moxy, just to be clear for the future, I don't agree with your revert here. Someone going around adding unnecessary quotation marks is a nuisance. It makes ref names much fiddlier to type when you're writing an article, and they're not needed for one word (ref name=X). Yes, I saw the discussion at WT:CITE. That didn't show consensus that these edits must be allowed to stand. SarahSV (talk) 05:39, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Zero affect for our readers so I don't really care. But if there is some sort of problem best change the tools used by many.--Moxy 🍁 06:25, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

United KingdomEdit

Hi thanks for your recent edits to United Kingdom. However you duplicated text within the article, so i removed this.
