"Diktat"

Hi,

I saw you edit regarding this, what's your opinion regarding the Second Vienna Award? Should there be also removed?(KIENGIR (talk) 20:16, 8 April 2020 (UTC))[reply]

Feel free to edit that article as well. Thank You(KIENGIR (talk) 20:23, 8 April 2020 (UTC))[reply]

Hi,

I also did a search and quite a lot of historical sources (even when eliminating Hungarian/Romanian sources) either recognizing or explicitly mention the term "Diktat". Some explicitly mention the Vienna Diktat, no "award" in there - so a little bit more than just an aka...

So beside the original source cited, which is one of the definitive sources regarding World War 2, here are some other examples:

See also contemporary sources. - NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/1946/05/08/archives/big-4-quickly-cede-all-transylvania-to-the-rumanians-decision-in.html - The Sydney Morning Herald, Sep. 5 1940, German Moves section / Clashes Reported sub-section: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1301&dat=19400905&id=MFQRAAAAIBAJ&sjid=gpUDAAAAIBAJ&pg=4435,472876

There are also other respected sources that can be cited (again, talking here about serious authors with are internationally recognized when it comes to the subject), using this term: for example Hugh Seton-Watson (Eastern Europe Between the Wars, 1918-1941).

So by sheer wight of the sources this term should be used (as an aka at the very least). And frankly, if contemporary sources freely used the term "diktat" (mind you, there is no "award" in there sometimes) this is telling.

And if not, could you please explain to me how is the selection of sources supposed to work? And how is the selection of citation from sources properly done?

Because I know of examples where otherwise obscure (or vaguely related to the subject) sources are brought up in order to present a more "neutral" point of view (the argument used by those editors) or even editors citing some portion of otherwise respected sources without mentioning that the same very source they cite, in the next sentence or paragraph, states that the cited paragraph (which is of the form "X said at the time something") has been since proven false. For example, say you have a respectable source - J. Smith - that states "X says that the sun is cold. But X was proven wrong." and the editor cites J. Smith in a Wikipedia article by incorporating "X said the sun is cold" and attributing that to J. Smith.

So I really am at a loss... How and why is sometimes OK to "dig up" sources that represent a tiny minority view (sometimes even proven wrong since), and use them in an article, while sources which should have a lot more weight from the perspective of those sources being experts in the subject - or simply being contemporary - are to be disregarded? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cealicuca (talkcontribs)

Move review

Hi Buidhe, in terms of WP:IMR, would you be willing to extend this move discussion out a week as relevant Wikiprojects are alerted? I didn't have mold on my watchlist, but found out about it because it affects other pages I do edit. I was pretty surprised to see it closed as support when it seemed like the proposer ironically established the fungus was the primary topic. The subject of mold and it's common name usage gets complicated and easily confused (e.g., mold vs. water mold), so it seems like a good case to treat as no consensus for this first week and encourage editors familiar with the subject (e.g., fungi/microbiology projects) to chime in. Otherwise, it looks like pretty weak turnout and some superficial comments that shouldn't be counted under WP:!VOTE to varying degrees. If it were an AfD, that's one I definitely would have relisted for more input. Thanks. Kingofaces43 (talk) 21:13, 21 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I see you closed it a week later as "no consensus" but although I don't strongly disagree with the fungus being at the basename the previous close has been in accordance with clear consensus that was enacted and the cleanup was nearly done when it was challenged. If someone asks for a discussion to be re-opened after its been closed correctly, in accordance with the PAGs I don't think that can erase that previous consensus. I previously brought up this at Wikipedia talk:Consensus/Archive 20#Enacted discussions but no clear consensus on that emerged there. Crouch, Swale (talk) 19:33, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Crouch, Swale, I can see that argument but I don't think I can overturn it myself because I am a lowly non-admin. If you're bothered by it feel free to open a move review. buidhe 19:48, 30 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I don't think being a non-admin prevents you from overturning it (though to move it back you would need to ask one) since non-admins can close RMs and anyway you were the one who found consensus previously to move. I'm not really that bothered about the consensus its self but that there was previously consensus for the move that was enacted and after relisting no consensus emerged which suggests the previous consensus was correct.

ad Hitlerum

For the sake of curiosity: what do you consider original research in the statement that "ad Hitlerum" features an inflected name in the same way "ad Lutherum" does?

Apologies for the language that truly did take me by surprise!,
Please read WP:RM and please don't close or participate in RM moves until you have a better understanding of the RM process, Whilst 6-7 days had passed there was certainly no consensus at all to name that article and therefore it should have been relisted for a further 7 days, If 2-3 weeks pass and no comments there sure it could've been moved but your move as it stands was way too premature/too soon,

A World Without Jews moved to draftspace

An article you recently created, A World Without Jews, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. Kleuske (talk) 13:49, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Kleuske: (talk page watcher) and all, but did you really have to draftify that article one minute following its creation? One minute?! Just watchlist and come back 15" later if you have to. And another thing—if you're going to template a regular, at least try not to instruct an autopatrolled editor to use AfC! serial # 14:24, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Serial Number 54129: We have sandboxes, as many as you like, we have draft space, and we are free to take as much time as we please to construct an article that exceeds one sentence and includes enough context to make sense to the casual reader, at least includes some claim of importance, especially articles under titles like “A World Without Jews”. One minute sufficed to read the entire article, find out that Marx penned a book with the same title, find its modern counterpart, and make sure it’s not some antisemetic screed. Did the author really find it necessary to forgo the use of their sandbox and/or draft space? Did you really think it necessary to berate me here instead of coming to my talk page?
As to the “template”, I used a script, which automates the whole process, which can be a pain in the butt to do manually. If the text produced by the script offended Buidhe, I apologize to them, and point out they are, of course, not obligated to use the AfC system, but extra eyes never hurt. Kleuske (talk) 16:39, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Kleuske, as a patroller I would not draftify a one sentence article about a book on verifiability grounds, because it cites itself for its own existence. The reason why I created the article was because it took me several minutes to collect all the sources which are there now (A World Without Jews) and I was worried that someone else would redirect the article in the meantime, causing messiness. buidhe 16:50, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
((In creation)) or some such might be a good idea, in that case. Also, redirects can be easily overwritten. I don’t really see the messiness, there. At the moment it looks fine. Though. Problem solved. Apologies for the inconvenience. Kleuske (talk) 17:11, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I should have been more careful with the message, though. I did not mean to imply the subject was not verifiable. Apologies for that, too. Kleuske (talk) 17:17, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Kleuske, it verged on bullying, for which there should be no excuse. Nothing needs to be done that urgently (with the exception of a few well-worn exceptions, none of which apply). serial #
That statement could apply equally to the article's creator too. It didn't need to be in the encyclopedia in the state it was in and there was no urgency to get it there. Unfortunately I see this a lot, and the answer isn't to chastise the patroller for doing his job. The answer is to accept that there has been a paradigm shift on gatekeeping here, and established editors should change their workflow to accommodate it. It takes ONE more edit to create an article in draft space as opposed to mainspace. Being a holder of the autopatrolled flag means the community trusts the editor enough not to do that, and frankly, repeated creation of substandard articles in mainspace is cause to remove it. Everything changes, period. That which doesn't change with the times fails. Please accept that due to societal change, Wikipedia had to change. Draft in draft or userspace. The only difference is indexing, and we shouldn't be indexing a one line article, especially since no one, not even its creator, expected it to stay that way. No one is demeaning the editor's work. An analogy: I'm old enough that the 2020 US Census was my sixth one. Every single one of them has been done completely differently. Why? Lots of things change in a ten year period, both with how technology is used and what info society needs. Wikipedia is no different. This is my ninth year at this, and it changes frequently. Is it suprising that one might be required to do things differently today than we did them 10 years ago? No, it isn't. John from Idegon (talk) 18:05, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
If you think that writing an article in mainspace "verged on bullying", then your philosophical approach is very different from mine, and, dare I say, most. serial # 18:44, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Really, it was Shhhnotsoloud who should have filed the RM in the first place. I filed the RM immediately after the undiscussed move, so if there's no consensus for a title, it should go to the long-term stable title that stood for a decade+. (Ping for @Shhhnotsoloud: as well in case you have further input.) SnowFire (talk) 15:59, 16 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@SnowFire: I'd be content with that since it was the stable title. I'll do it. Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 16:33, 16 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Shhhnotsoloud: Thanks. SnowFire (talk) 17:28, 16 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
