References and parenthesisEdit
You moved a reference outside of a parenthetical statement over at Diana Schutz.
I understand the instinct, but per MOS:REFPUNCT, parentheticals are an exception to the usual reference-after-punctuation rules. If the reference is just for material inside the parentheses (as in this case it was), the reference also goes inside.
I've undone your edit.
Hi! In modal logic#History, you edited a sentence that now reads:
C. I. Lewis founded modern modal logic in a series of scholarly articles beginning in 1912 with " ".

David Ray GriffinEdit
You are invited to join the discussion at Talk:David Ray Griffin § Description and interests. Thank you. Roy McCoy (talk) 03:38, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
- I notice you deleted the section following but left this one. I hope this suggests that you'll consider visiting and perhaps contributing to the Griffin discussion and article. I noticed you seemed to be familiar with Prof. Griffin, adding his influences – and also his main interests, which is largely what the present discussion is about. Thank you. –Roy McCoy (talk) 21:50, 18 October 2020 (UTC)
Hello, I believe you endorsed my article Metabasis Paradox, now accepted. During the process, everybodywiki.com took both the Metabasis article and the same piece by another title (you may remember when I changed the title). The admin who controls everybodywiki.com, a Wikipedian username WikiMaster (?) got mad when I blanked both pages repeatedly while awaiting acceptance at Wikipedia. So he or she blocked me, and maye that's OK. But though WikiMaster has taken down Metabasis Paradox from everybodywiki, they seem reluctunt to take down Change of Fortune Paradox. Isn't everybodywiki.com not entitled to that article, since it is the same article, and now accepted at Wikipedia? I wonder if you know anyone who can help in this matter. If not, thanks for reading this and your other help.Cdg1072 (talk) 05:00, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
ArbCom 2020 Elections voter messageEdit
You've misinterpreted this guideline - "Sir"/"Dame" is part of the name. MOS:SIR: "The infobox heading includes pre-nominals, name and post-nominals as separate elements. The title is placed in bold in the first use of the name". I agree its a bit ambiguous but it would be better to raise this at the MOS talk page and get consensus for a mass change, rather than doing it piecemeal article by article and introducing inconsistencies within series.

- Please see this. --Omnipaedista (talk) 15:46, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
- Please consider reverting yourself. --Omnipaedista (talk) 15:47, 15 December 2020 (UTC)
- Please read Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Biography#MOS:SIR: I have already mentioned you there and your arguments have been dismissed by others as a misinterpretation of the wikiwide MOS and violation of WP:OWN. --Omnipaedista (talk) 20:16, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
Hello,I would like to know why you canceled my changes ? The name العجيلي in arabic traducting by Al-aajili and not ujayla — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wajdi Ljl (talk • contribs) 09:35, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
- Each person chooses to render their name as they wish. For example Shahla Ujayli chose to render her name this way as you can see in the link quoted in the article about her: https://www.arabicfiction.org/en/node/595. Please respect other people's wishes and please do not move articles or change transcriptions without first discussing such changes in the respective talk pages of the articles. --Omnipaedista (talk) 09:57, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

I confess to be interested in authority control, and could do well without portal links. I the MoS binding, or could I reflect it in articles to which I contributed? In articles I write, I don't even have (distracting) portal links. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:49, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Happy New Year!Edit
Mundane science fiction editsEdit
Given your latest edit comment "I am quoting the style guide itself, not a talk page" you apparently misunderstood my edit comment/revert reason. I wasn't suggesting you quoted the talk page - I believe the style guide you quoted doesn't mean what you think it means. The talk link wasn't my "source" - it is my way of inviting you to join the discussion, which, again, is at Wikipedia_talk:Manual_of_Style/Lead_section#BOLDSYN_(again...).
