  • Dear Arthur,

    I have noticed since I started on this wiki back in February that your specialty seems to be galleries.  Could you or someone else please create a gallery for Jeanne Calment on her page?  I think that it would be a good idea to have an expansive gallery of her since she is the oldest person ever.  I have already added a comment to her page about this and have included links to the photos.  They are sourced from GRG>

    Thank you, Fgway (Frankland Johnson)

    I did not undo it because you combined that edit with another that passed. I'm giving you the opportunity to fix thing. If it's not fixed, I will take action.

  • Hi Arthur,



    Can I just ask that you don't include extra photos for her just yet.

  • Apparently being "nice" isn't working, so I'm instituting stronger measures.

    I already asked you NOT to hide categories in Infoboxes, yet you continue to do so.

    What part of NO do you NOT understand?

    Enjoy your one-week vacation.

  • Please explain why "removing" categories that are in "infoboxes" helps the Gerontology Wiki in any way.

    This to me appears to be not only a waste of time, but it makes the article more difficult to edit.

    • Hi Robert,

      As the infoboxes automatically insert certain categories into the article, having the manually inserted categories that are identical to those included with the infobox simply makes the memory size of the article larger. So, especially with articles that already take up a large amount of memory, it's helpful to reduce the size wherever possible, and removing these duplicate categories is a quick and easy way to reduce it.

      Also, if I remember correctly, the categories included in the infobox would sort biographical articles by surname, seen for example on this page, however, the identical manually inserted categories would sort by first name. In the past, this conflict made it more difficult to find a specific page through the categories, so it made sense to have them all sorted in the same manner, which is done though the inclusion of the category in the infobox.

      Hope this clear it all up.

      In other words, NO NEED TO DO IT because it's NOT EVEN THE SAME THING...as you just pointed out, one of them sorts by FIRST name and the other by SURNAME.

    • Well, not really, because whilst they both sort differently, they attempt to do so on the same category page, meaning there are conflicts on the category pages, whereby some articles are sorted by surname, and some by first name, meaning there is no consistency on the category page, and it is therefore more difficult for someone to find an article. Of course, there is also the issue regarding the size of the page, which I previously mentioned.

      I'm just really not happy with the WIKIA Infobox system, which is exceedingly difficult to edit (for example, suppose someone put the wrong "flag" for place of birth for someone). Putting all the categories in the InfoBox is basically locking them up.

  • Don’t died and passed away mean the same thing?

    Also isn’t passed away a less harsh way to say died?

  • Please stop adding false categories. For example, Franz Kunstler article (added categories "German supercentenarians", "Hungarian supercentenarians" and "Hungarian-German supercentenarians".

    Mr. Kunstler was not a supercentenarian!
