fixing USC post[edit]

Hello - I'm reaching out because you helped me in supplying a citation for a change I made (as user USCComp, a username that is now blocked so I'm writing from an IP address) to the page on Moor Mother. I signed up to update our faculty pages, and I am a USC affiliate (this should have been disclosed, I now understand). One update I made was flagged for Professor Christopher Trapani was flagged for a conflict of interest (I also posted without a source but you can see the same source you cited for Moor Mother, https://web.archive.org/web/20210803200746/https://music.usc.edu/usc-thornton-welcomes-new-faculty-2021, would be valid).

Could I ask for your help if possible in making a similar edit and removing the conflict of interest flag from Professor Trapani's page? I would like to be able to update Wikipedia pages for all of our new faculty, but I don't want to create more conflicts of interest so I likely will not post again. Many thanks for your help.2603:8000:D003:F12E:45D3:D149:CC7:DD43 (talk) 22:59, 18 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi, I've added the statement as it can be verifiably sourced. However, I don't feel comfortable unilaterally removing the tag and will leave that decision to those actively editing the page. Alduin2000 (talk) 00:08, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you. Any thoughts on why this is considered a COI on one page but not the other? I'm learning and grateful for any input.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Pieterboter (talkcontribs)
@Pieterboter: I think that it was probably COI on both pages but just wasn't noticed on one of them. Both have the sourced content now though, although not sourced to secondary sources. By the way, you can sign your comments on talk pages by adding ~~~~ at the end, which will automatically add your username and time of edit. Alduin2000 (talk) 00:32, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[]

RE Village[edit]

Hi there. Thank you for your edits. I would like to point out that you should use past tense instead of present tense ("Critics praised the variety found throughout the different sections of the game. Hornshaw says..." should be said). Also when talking about the title, please use italic text (Village). Have a nice day. --ภץאคгöร 21:39, 13 May 2021 (UTC)[]

COVID-19 pandemic in the United States[edit]

Hi, thank you for filling my request. Could you make one change? Since the previous sentence gave March 16, "Three days later on March 19" is redundant, so could you remove "on March 19"? Thank you. 64.203.186.98 (talk) 17:59, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

 Done. Alduin2000 (talk) 20:24, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

hello[edit]

why do you change Romanian to Eastern European! Resident Evil village takes place is Romania Arkley07 (talk) 21:26, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello @Arkley07: the reason why I have changed Romanian to Eastern European is given in a note next to that sentence when you edit the page which reads:

"Resident Evil frequently uses fictional countries in place of real world counterparts - Kijuju for Somalia, Edonia for Serbia, Eastern Slav for Ukraine. As Capcom has never named the country, it is quite likely another fictional nationstate."

If you want to change this, make sure to provide a reliable source and the change should remain unreverted. Thanks for putting in the effort to improve Wikipedia. Alduin2000 (talk) 21:37, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

thanks for explaining it for me! I have reliable sources from various articles and the game itself,example: 1.Resident Evil Village’s currency is Lei (leu is the currency of Romania) 2.In the game there are a lot of Romanian names. 3.Traditional foods. etc Arkley07 (talk) 21:47, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

and also if you google Lady Dimitrescu(romanian name) you get that she lives in a castle in a Romanian village so... Arkley07 (talk) 21:55, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

@Arkley07: No problem! Just to let you know, Wikipedia usually requires that sources explicitly state what is being added to an article. This means that Capcom or a reliable news source or website would need to say something like "Resident Evil Village is officially set in Romania". Content that is added to an article without there being a source to explicitly state it is what Wikipedia calls "Original Research" and this is not allowed to make sure that Wikipedia is always supported by reliable sources. Even if multiple sources seem to suggest that the content is probably true, generally Wikipedia needs a source to explicitly state it anyway to ensure the reliability of the encyclopedia (see the section on the original research page called "Synthesis of published material"). Although some sources have speculated that Village may be set in Romania due to names and currency, none have said that it is officially set in Romania (which would have to be declared by Capcom). Alduin2000 (talk) 22:17, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]
@Arkley07: Whilst I couldn't find a source that Village is officially set in Romania, I have added that the Castle Dimitrescu was inspired by a Romanian castle to the Development section due to the source you talked about ("if you google Lady Dimitrescu(romanian name) you get that she lives in a castle in a Romanian village"). Alduin2000 (talk) 22:29, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

if you can do me a favour😅 If one day Capcom officially states that village takes place in Romania can you change it then? and also why does it state that Lady Dimitrescu lives in a Romanian village? Arkley07 (talk) 23:24, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

@Arkley07: If I hear that it is announced I will make sure to change the page. If you hear it and can find a good source saying so then feel free to make the change too Face-smile.svg Alduin2000 (talk) 23:54, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[]

you are a lovely person thank you for teaching me the ways😂 Arkley07 (talk) 07:43, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[]

hey man I’ve done some resource and i found out that capcom originally wanted the cast to have Romanian accents in an interview.How can i show the proof and also can i change it now😢 Arkley07 (talk) 08:13, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[]

@Arkley07: If you have a source that Capcom originally wanted the cast to have Romanian accents then you can add that (maybe to the development section) but because the source doesn't say the game is actually set in Romania, the article should remain saying that it is set in Eastern Europe. To add the reference when editing the page, I think there should be a button that says cite in the editor which you can add the url of the page where the interview is to and that should add a reference for you. Alduin2000 (talk) 11:59, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[]

ok thanks Arkley07 (talk) 12:04, 4 June 2021 (UTC)[]

Question[edit]

Why did I cancel my edit to the article List of country calling codes, it was important, as some phone numbers will not be found by adding +30, but by adding +0030..??Mohmad Abdul sahib 15:57, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]

The reason I deleted +0030 from the list is because the 00 part is an international exit code, not part of the country code of Greece. The source you added notes “00” is an international exit code (the number used to access the international switchboard) for most European countries. If ’00’ is dialed from a country that does not use that as its exit code, the call will not work. This means that countries such as the US, Australia and Japan that do not use +0030 but have there own international exit codes (e.g. +01130 for US and Canada) would be misinformed by the +0030 number. Only 30 is the actual country code as stated by the source (“30” is the country code for Greece. It is the number that is dialed to reach Greece from the international switchboard.). Source: https://howtophoneto.com/what-country-is-country-code-0030/
Alduin2000 (talk) 16:25, 22 July 2021 (UTC)[]
Alduin2000 For this reason, it must be added because some countries will not work the call except with the code +0030, and the article was created to be a reference for international codes!, or is there another article dedicated to international exit codes!!.Mohmad Abdul sahib 11:02, 23 July 2021 (UTC)[]
@Mohmad Abdul sahib: List of international call prefixes. Alduin2000 (talk) 13:51, 23 July 2021 (UTC)[]
Alduin2000 Emphasize the need to answer, to avoid filing a complaint.Mohmad Abdul sahib 17:27, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]
@Mohmad Abdul sahib: I don't think I understand, do you mind rephrasing? Sorry, just not getting what you mean for some reason. Thanks. Alduin2000 (talk) 20:19, 24 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Alduin2000 You must add +0030 because some countries will not work on +30.Mohmad Abdul sahib 10:25, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@Mohmad Abdul sahib: List of country calling codes is for country calling codes, not international exit codes. List of international call prefixes is for international exit codes and 00 is already listed for Europe. Furthermore, the lead of List of country calling codes already informs the reader By convention, international telephone numbers are represented by prefixing the country code with a plus sign (+), which also indicates to the subscriber that the local international call prefix must first be dialed. For example, the international call prefix in all countries of the North American Numbering Plan is 011, while it is 00 in most European, Asian and African countries. and I have just added a link to international call prefix so readers can access it if they need it.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Days of the year[edit]

Hey Alduin2000,

Thanks for the good work adding missing citations to September 9. Cleaning up those articles is the main focus of Wikipedia:WikiProject Days of the year these days. Please consider joining the project. We could use your help!

Here's the (long) backstory:

A few years ago, some of us noticed that the Days of Years (DOTY) pages were becoming a complete mess with incorrect and unverifiable info.

The DOTY project had exempted themselves from verifiability. (yes, really) As a result, almost none of the pages had any sources to back things up, based on the naive (and against Wikipedia policy) belief that all entries would be backed by reliable sources in the linked article. It turns out that was not the case and the DOTY pages were filled with incorrect info and even worse, other places started believing the info there and publishing the incorrect info in newspapers, for example on "Today's date in history" type listings.

So about two years ago the DOTY project took the bold step of requiring that all new entries be backed by direct reliable sources. Several of us have gone through and started cleaning things up. May 11 is an example of where we want to be. For details see the content guideline, the WikiProject Days of the Year style guide or the edit notice on any DOY page.

We could use your help in:

  1. Preventing new entries that don't include direct sources and when they occur, either supplement them with a reliable source or reverting them.
  2. Helping us clean up articles. The project members have asked all participants to go through their birthday and clean the entries up by adding reliable sources to each entry, or removing entries where reliable sources aren't readily available. Some of us have done that and a few more days.

Anyway, please consider joining us. Toddst1 (talk) 00:48, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[]


Hey Toddst1, I saw Wikiproject DOTY from the recent Signpost so I decided to help improve some of the articles. I'm not sure how much I can continue to improve the pages though - if I join I might not be the most active in the wikiproject. Thanks for reaching out though.

DYK for Quine–Putnam indispensability argument[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 31 August 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Quine–Putnam indispensability argument, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that some philosophers of mathematics believe that the life cycle of a species of cicadas is a good argument for the existence of numbers? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Quine–Putnam indispensability argument. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Quine–Putnam indispensability argument), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
