Partial results reportingEdit

Hi, I saw you reverted my edit on 2020 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania. While I agree that the winner isn't known, it seems to make sense to me to report the partial results (and the infobox is built to support that). Maybe a compromise could be to not bold the leader in the infobox (since they haven't won yet). Elliot321 (talk | contribs) 19:36, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

I think it's misleading to include the partial vote counts, at least for a state whose winner has not yet been projected by reliable sources. Including the partial vote counts gives the impression that the winner of the state is known, but in Pennsylvania the winner is not yet known. I checked a few other articles (2020 United States presidential election in Florida, 2020 United States presidential election in Montana, 2020 United States presidential election in Michigan) and found that they don't give the partial results either (even though it would be less misleading, as winners in those states have been projected by reliable sources). An additional issue is that it's hard to keep these numbers up to date—Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a news site.
Maybe it would be best to start a discussion at Talk:2020 United States presidential election about how to handle partial results in states where votes are still being counted. —Granger (talk · contribs) 19:45, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for your continued help on the Tyson Foods article's talk page. I've enjoyed the process of sharing sources and article text for editors to review. I've submitted my most recent request here if you have another moment to take a look soon. Thanks again! MW Tyson (talk) 20:08, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the message – I will look at it soon, probably this weekend. —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:14, 8 January 2021 (UTC)


Posting here rather than at Talk:Parler or Talk:Epik (company) because you edited both articles. My understanding from the sourcing is that Epik's statement was released before the discovery that Parler had changed their registrar, and doesn't necessarily conflict with that information. GorillaWarfare (talk) 20:09, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

@GorillaWarfare: You may be right. Rereading the sources, they don't seem to indicate the sequence of events unambiguously. (For instance Mashable says "Epik put out a statement on Monday claiming it had no contact or discussion with Parler prior to the transfer of the domain name", which is syntactically ambiguous and can be understood either way.) I'll remove the material about Epik's statement for now. —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:20, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I think it's possible the statement went out Monday morning and then later that day Parler began using their service. Hard to tell. GorillaWarfare (talk) 20:23, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
