minor characters on Cars (film)Edit

I've reprimanded the guy on his talk page. --Eaglestorm (talk) 01:45, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. I'd have done the same if more showed up. --Skywatcher68 (talk) 12:17, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
A heads-up about more goings-on. Thx. SpikeJones (talk) 19:04, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Hey Skywatcher68, after you deleted my mention of Tommy Joe from Mater's profile, you said "Sorry, video game stuff belongs the video game articles." Well, if that is the case, then how come the Wikipedia articles for both Cars videogames don't have any profiles on the gosh-darn videogame-exclusive characters?!? FlapjackStantz (talk) 17:08, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Thx. I am familiar with Edokter - and, having not seen this specific edit as of yet - have faith that the edit should be okay based on my previous experiences, especially as the character being added is a notable person in-and-of-themselves. If not, I will take it up with them directly. No worries. SpikeJones (talk) 18:24, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Having looked at the edit, yes - I agree with you that the character should not be on THAT specific page (but can be on the List Of... characters page). I've suggested it to Edokter, let's see what happens. Should be a reasonable, even-minded discussion, if any occurs at all. SpikeJones (talk) 18:33, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

List of Cars characters in other mediaEdit

I have declined the Prod on List of Cars characters in other media since redirects must go to WP:RFD. However, since content was merged, to comply with our GFDL licence it is unlikely it will be deleted. TerriersFan (talk) 18:50, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" filmsEdit

Hello!

Thank you for replacing that link last night... 06:31 hrs. GMT... amongst your main edit.

The editor concerned seems to behave "like a dog without a bone"... hopefully he will go away.

Best wishes.

Request for semi-protection on Maze Runner and Scorch Trials film pagesEdit

Hi!

Thanks for the suggestion. I am hesitant to follow through on it for the moment, since sometimes there are good contributions on both pages from IP users, but I will definitely give it a try if this person persists. I'm quite new to Wikipedia, so I hope I do it right if I have to!

/sorry/Edit

I got angry, cause the guy talking about " frustrated Pole" is actually from Poland and he got me off nerves. Now the article is 100% free of my opinion. If you think I should change something, let me know. PS. I still claim the video is insulting and fake. Holocaust was a tragedy for Polish people. Mistaking victim with oppressor is bad :( — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.31.133 (talk) 19:23, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@95.175.31.133:Did you watch the video? They simply want to change the law which makes illegal any accusations of Polish people taking part in the holocaust, that includes Polish kapos. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 21:43, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

I did watch it. Firstly, you are wrong, but it is common... Did you read the law? New Polish law do not forbid accusations of particular people, especially kapos. The law itself forbids accusing Polish as a nation - you can accuse those people, just you cannot say 'Poles are responsible for Holocaust' or 'Camps vere Polish' or like american Jew does: "polish people killed more Jews than Nazis". Kapos were considered criminals and been hunted even during WWII by Polish Underground Army (the penalty for collaboration with the nazis was death, with execution right after reading sentence), no one defends them. Saying Poles are responsible for Holocaust is the same as saying that Jews are - cause kapos were not only Polish people. Furthermore, law makes illegal only accusations without proof and it does not make any resarch or art illegal. Secondly... they don't say they don't like the law. They directly insult Polish people, deliberately accusing not kapos, but whole nation. Blaming people for Nazi collaboration is considered extremely insultive and they know it. Almost everyone in Poland lost something in the war, as WWII took about 25% of Poland population. Maybe it's hard to understand, but Poland and Israel both have WWII scars, that make some things very emotional.

If you think the video was not offensive - why even Israel embassy condemned it, while they also condemn Polish law? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.31.133 (talk) 22:37, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@95.175.31.133:The video itself is not offensive, they want to ensure there is not, as the Times of Israel puts it, "a chilling effect on debating history, harming freedom of expression and leading to a whitewashing of Poland’s wartime history." What's offensive is the use of "Polish Holocaust". –Skywatcher68 (talk) 22:47, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

The law, literally (if you're curious):

„każdy, kto publicznie i wbrew faktom przypisuje polskiemu narodowi lub państwu polskiemu odpowiedzialność lub współodpowiedzialność za zbrodnie popełnione przez III Rzeszę Niemiecką lub inne zbrodnie przeciwko ludzkości, pokojowi i zbrodnie wojenne — będzie podlegał karze grzywny lub pozbawienia wolności do lat trzech”.	

It says: everyone who publicly and agains the facts would accuse Polish nation or Polish state (country? It means you cannot say that Polish government collaborated with Nazis in planning Holocaust) for responsibility or partial responsibility for 3rd Reich crimes or other crimes agains humanity, peace and war crimes - will be fined or imprisoned for up to 3 years. I think 'publicly' 'agains the facts' and 'nation/state' are very important words here, which are often skipped when international media speak about the law. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.31.133 (talk) 22:49, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Undid changes in the articleEdit

Hello. I have noticed that you undid my change in the Ruderman Family Foundation article, where I've precised clearly that the Nazis were Germans. This is very important for us, because there were no such a nation as Nazis. They were exactly Germans. Naming Nazi Germans only "Nazis" is widely considered in Europe as an attempt to whitewash the historical truth and improving their reputation. And to cut the link between Nazis and Germans also. So believe me this specifying is absolutely needed.

Buldog francuski (talk) 23:46, 22 February 2018 (UTC)


It's sad that the article 2 days ago had direct links to Jewish organizations statements, which claimed that the video is harmful and propagating a lie. Now the article only says it was removed "because of their concerns for their [Jews] safety". So now the statements in the video are the truth, just dangerous. Polish people felt insulted? Let's write it in a way that will make them agressors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.31.132 (talk) 12:45, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

@95.175.31.133: Wikipedia deals in facts, not opinions. Claiming the video was any attempt at "Holocaust denial" is clearly an unsubstantiated opinion. The most recent edits by Buldog francuski expands on what those organizations have publicly stated what's wrong with the video and do it in a neutral manner. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 14:46, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

You are not answering to what I am saying. I am not writing anything about holocaust denial, but about reasons that took down the video. It was took down cause Jewish organisations said its wrong, and now Wikipedia says it was takes down with concers of their safety. Every trace of protests that were made against the video is wiped. Why? Those protests were a fact, published on embassy page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.175.31.132 (talk) 22:42, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Shared IPEdit

Hi! I noticed you've put the shared IP template to my talk page. To be honest, I had an account before, but lost the e-mail so the password could be retrieved. It was like three years ago and I don't remember the username I registred at the time. I know that this IP "may be shared by multiple users of an educational institution" and that I might receive messages on my page that weren't intended for me, but since this occured I was upset and didn't create another login and moved away from here. I've returned in the middle of last year, but sporadically. I don't own a PC at home and since I came to the university I've tried to be more active here. Thanks for the warning. Best wishes!

Bicarbonate in cancer treatmentEdit

There's nothing specific in the archived reference either. I verified. Not you apparently.2A01:E34:EDB4:C0E0:CD25:3EB9:1901:C9F9 (talk) 22:36, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

@2A01:E34:EDB4:C0E0:CD25:3EB9:1901:C9F9: First two sentences in the archived article, under "Overview": "Available scientific evidence does not support claims that cancer is caused by infection with a type of yeast known as Candida albicans. Available scientific evidence also does not support the idea that sodium bicarbonate works as a treatment for any form of cancer or that it cures yeast or fungal infections." How is that not specific? –Skywatcher68 (talk) 22:46, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
Thre're a number of trecent papers supporting the idea that sodium bicarbonate may help immuno- and chemo-therapy. They weren't avalaible at the time (2008). The new editor in chief of the Cancer Research (journal), Chi Van Dang, M.D., Ph.D., professor in the Molecular & Cellular Oncogenesis Program at The Wistar Institute and scientific director of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, is supporting this view, which is by the way, his presonal area of research. Those who elected him at this function could have ignored that. So things are changing and we can't just rely on an old reference without consistance to stay in obscurantism. https://wistar.org/news/press-releases/how-might-baking-soda-boost-cancer-therapy 2A01:E34:EDB4:C0E0:CD25:3EB9:1901:C9F9 (talk) 22:58, 1 March 2019 (UTC)
@2A01:E34:EDB4:C0E0:CD25:3EB9:1901:C9F9: One also cannot rely on press releases. See WP:MEDPRI. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 23:02, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

April 2019Edit

Your recent editing history at Sami Yusuf shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war; that means that you are repeatedly changing content back to how you think it should be, when you have seen that other editors disagree. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in you being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. Dusti*Let's talk!* 18:47, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

@Dusti:Mjahangir777 simply won't listen. The disputed content has been discussed on the talk page and accepted by admin Þjarkur. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 18:53, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Þjarkur is not an administrator Dusti*Let's talk!* 18:59, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@Dusti:That person should not be responding to full-protection edit requests. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 19:01, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
@Dusti:Should be obvious now that Mjahangir777 isn't capable of reaching consensus. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 19:55, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Why did you un-do an edit I made today to Will Cain's bio. It had factually incorrect information about him announcing he's leaving ESPN! -Dave.Nagle@espn.com

@192.234.2.18: As noted on your IP's talk page, you're supposed to discuss edits to any articles where you have a conflict of interest on said article's talk page.

Re: Mazewaxie convoEdit

You should have asked about the background a bit more. Seb had accused Mazewaxie of being a sock of TedEdwards ,etc. - All of the regular WP:TEND bag of tricks. Incivility enough to shed AGF like a Huskie in high summer. Then, after schooled so hard it leaves a dent, Seb "sem-retires" after telling people numerous times to "fuck off". Only, he doesn't retire. Perversely, he keeps editing, and posting further incivility. You walked in on that scene. Like I said, you could have read the room better. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 21:32, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

@Jack Sebastian: Someone being incivil to you doesn't mean you get to be incivil in return. You've been a registered editor for nine years; you should know better than to stoop to that level. –Skywatcher68 (talk) 21:54, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
