Question from Specktrum (10:30, 7 June 2024)[edit]

Hello I would like to create a page on a new type of art I created --Specktrum (talk) 10:30, 7 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You should read WP:YFA and WP:BACKWARDS. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:48, 7 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Page move[edit]

Hi UtherSRG, I know this is a good faith edit but I seek you revert the move as the subject isn't the primary topic. Check the DAB page pls. Also, you didn't notify my move which you reverted. If you disagree with me, it's most appropriate opening a RM discussion. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 16:02, 8 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The DAB indicates she is the primary topic, so the move was proper. To undo the move, the DAB should also be reformulated. - UtherSRG (talk) 16:54, 8 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
No, the page view tells it all. I moved the page to it's disambiguator "philanthropist" to be a better dab to the "preacher" while the page Mary Fletcher becomes the DAB page. If you had disagree with that, while didn't you open a requested move. I know you are right with your understanding but it's an error for me. Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 17:33, 8 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I did what I thought was right. You do you. - UtherSRG (talk) 18:48, 8 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@SafariScribe: I think you used the wrong move template. Please see WP:RM for the proper procedure. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:57, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Schendylops ramirezi[edit]

I am working on an article on Schendylops ramirezi, and if I understand the edit history correctly, you think that it can be improved and needs rewriting. Thanks for the suggestion about adding links, which I have now done. Can you explain what other issues you see with the article? I am continuing to edit the article and would like to address your concerns. HCUPa (talk) 21:11, 9 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The Description is significantly more than just description. - UtherSRG (talk) 21:45, 9 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the feedback: I've tried to trim the Description section to minimize digressions, hoping these edits are responsive. HCUPa (talk) 14:29, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Linking to an existing genus article in place of a non-existing species article is problematic. If that species article gets created, the user will be directed to the wrong place. This is why I rewrote that sentence. Please consider something similar. - UtherSRG (talk) 14:42, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from ChristopherIsReal (10:29, 11 June 2024)[edit]

I have so many people asking me for information about me and the work I do. They keep asking me if I have a WIKI page. So can I make a page about myself and the work I do? --ChristopherIsReal (talk) 10:29, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@ChristopherIsReal: While you can do so, you are strongly encouraged to not do so. Please read and understand WP:AUTOB. In a nutshell: Wikipedia doesn't care what subject has to say about themselves; we only care about what significant coverage has been written in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:35, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
OK I get it. So it has to be someone other than the person who the article is about. Thanx ChristopherIsReal (talk) 10:49, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Regarding the species range for the Asiatic Wild Ass[edit]

I saw you undid my revision for the range details for the Asiatic wild ass citing that it was 'unsourced'. As a result, I would like to show you that the IUCN Red List lists only India under the extant range for the Ghudkhur subspecies of the Asiatic wild ass (the one native to South Asia), as it has been extirpated from Pakistan.

Question from Wealthofnation (04:14, 14 June 2024)[edit]

Dear UtherSRG,

New to editing on Wikipedia. I've been trying to clean up endowment for University of Cambridge and its 31 colleges. I usually update the endowment and net worth of each college annually as well as the University's total endowment.

It's a very big task, as Cambridge, unlike Oxford, does not publish consolidated endowment of all colleges. Therefore, I have to look up financial statement of each individual college on Charity Commission's website and update each college's endowment individually. 1) Is there a way for us to clean up the Colleges of the University of Cambridge page so I don't have to read 31 financial statements each year?

There also appears to be some dispute with another editor as to what constitutes Cambridge's overall endowment. Cambridge Uni Endowment Fund currently stands at 4 billion GBP (reference included), but not all of the Uni's endowment is in this fund.

2) How would we better gauge Cambridge's overall financial wealth? Is there a reviewer who can step in and resolve this.

Thank you. --Wealthofnation (talk) 04:14, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I can help with general editing matters, but these questions are out of my realm. Both of your questions would be good to address on the article's talk page. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:14, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Question from Pradedovići (11:17, 14 June 2024)[edit]

Hey there. Are there any particular methods to finding information about an otherwise unknown topic, especially if very little information is found by simply searching up a subject's name for example? Many thanks. --Pradedovići (talk) 11:17, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

There's no standard way, since there is no telling where informaiton may be found. The world is a very chaotic place, eh? However, there are a variety of places and methods you can use to find information. Help:Find sources has a lot of great tips and tools you can try. - UtherSRG (talk) 11:22, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Fringe edits[edit]

A user keeps adding original research and fringe theories to this page, to support the idea that it is actually a dinosaur, can you do something? https://en.m.wiki.x.io/w/index.php?title=Dinosaur_of_Ta_Prohm&curid=73438035&action=history Bonus Person (talk) 14:32, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Reverted and protected. - UtherSRG (talk) 14:36, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Article title[edit]

While some news outlets, reviews, and some booksellers do call the page "Rick and Morty: Go to Hell" with the colon, Oni Press themselves don't use a colon in the title. Even in their recommended buy lists at the back of each omnibus, they have the "TM" trademark symbol then a colon after every "Rick and Morty" title but "Go to Hell". I think the page should be moved back. Hardik Joshi India (talk) 05:02, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

We care more about how things are described in independent and reliable sources. Oni Press is not independent. - UtherSRG (talk) 12:16, 16 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
