Northeastern United States[edit]

I've moved our discussions from both our talk pages (and your archive) to Talk:Northeastern United States, as they might be of interest to someone studying the development of the article, and will not be of much use to someone studying us. Spıke 🎙️02:05 1-Apr-21

Steve Howe (guitarist)[edit]

I had a look at your article HolUp. I think my only question is regards giving him an impossible birthdate. I get it, he's been around for a long time so I would have been less specific. Perhaps the Mid Jurassic. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:42, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

His birthdate has been around since the article's creation, before I started working on it. I think it's pretty funny, although obviously false, and wouldn't really change it.--HolUp (talk) 20:44, 1 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't agree; nonsense dates are nonsense numbers. It's as unfunny as writing that he was born in -10,000,000 B.C. Again, line 1 of an article has to both lull the reader into a Wikipedia trance and give him hints that we aren't playing it quite straight. Three words later, the article does so, with "supercentenarian." I'd rather break ranks with Wikipedia and leave out the exact birthdate entirely — or indeed add (born: Mid-Jurassic) — than state a number that is just false, and obviously so.

We could stick with 'supercentenarian' and leave it at that:). --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:02, 1 April 2021 (UTC)


Didactically, yes, the period is not part of the title. But it must be in italics because of appearance. An italic period looks just like a non-italic period, and non-italic is drawn in the "wrong" place relative to the text. Spıke 🎙️09:36 9-Apr-21


Hi HolUp. There is a vote for Sysops here. Please take a look. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:06, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
