  • Hello, Richard.

    I see that you edited article Incomplete supercentenarian claims, I wanted to say something about your edits there.

    I saw that you added some cases (like Maam Ichinkhorol and Silvio Bandera Cosme). Purpose of that article is to be list of incomplete supercentenarians, not just limbo cases. All claims that I added don't have exact birth date, birth date of Mr. Silvio is known, so he is just limbo case, not incomplete case). 

    If it's not problem, don't add that type of claims (with birth date but without death date) because they are just limbo cases.

    • Limbo cases are incomplete cases...they have an incomplete death date!

      But I see what you mean now. You want the list to only feature claims without a complete birth date (maybe this should be specified). I’ll bear that in mind next time.

    • Yes, limbo cases are incomplete, but there is also list of the limbo cases

      Maybe we should expand that article

  • Hi,

    as for Mrs Campos, you should read the newspaper article on the French forum explaining that you were born, of course, on May 9, 1908, in Algeria.

    She is also not reported in the Spanish site:

  • Are your edits where you add space between the Infobox template and the opening line really necessary?

    • Let me rephrase: because it's reverted with every edit to an article due to a glitch, and because it ultimately has to do with you finding it nicer and it doesn't affect the look of the article, could you please stop adding space between the Infobox and opening line?

      That's a little bit better, but we need to think in more collaborative terms. Everyone has their own editing style. It's good to explain why you think that it would be better, not tell someone to stop...unless what they are doing is clearly damaging. In this case, it's not...it's just an editing style issue that doesn't even show up on the main pages and one for which Richard Monkey has a rationale behind it: to make it easier to edit.Ryoung122 (talk) 21:43, May 21, 2018 (UTC)

    • No problem. I may also make articles about Dirk F. F. van der Noen, Jacob Berg, and other past titleholders in the future.

  • Please use the "article" button to create articles. "Pages" is supposed to be for personal stuff, draft material, etc.Ryoung122 (talk) 17:00, February 24, 2018 (UTC)

  • If I see another "possible death" comment, as you did on the Futsuko Furuie article, expect to be suspended. It's offensive to the families and, while it may be possible, we shouldn't say that without evidence.Ryoung122 (talk) 16:08, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

    • I didn’t say it was certain. I said it was possible. But I’ll try to avoid it in future.

      Here's the thing, though: death is a sensitive topic, and we once had, for example, Teru Oshiro go to limbo because a government worker made a mistake and forgot to include her on a list. We should not "assume" that LIMBO means "death". The whole point of LIMBO is that while we cannot confirm that the person is still alive, we cannot confirm that they are deceased, either. And also, the Gerontology Wiki is to be run like an encyclopedia: if you cannot verify a statement such as "possible death", we should not say it.Ryoung122 (talk) 16:23, February 19, 2018 (UTC)

  • I'm not happy with your unilateral plan to move many cases to "questionable" lists without so much as discussing the issue first or defining what standards are being used to decide to separate some cases from others.

    It's not enough for you to have an opinion...your opinion is Original Research and that's a violation of the No Original Research rule.

    What matters are facts and sources. What sources do you have to back up an assertion of "questionable" status?

    You need to stop and then discuss this before continuing onward.Ryoung122 (talk) 07:53, February 1, 2018 (UTC)

    • You’re right. I guess I was hasty. I just moved the claim to questionable because Brazilian claims generally aren’t as reliable as, say, European ones. Also, in the 1906 article there are Brazilian claims in the questionable section.

      In future, I will try and remember to discuss before moving claims to questionable.

      Thanks, Richard.

      Remember, we have a sliding scale here. For 115+ unvalidated claims, we don't give them the benefit of the doubt. But at younger ages, we need to consider that someone, say, age 110 or 111 may not be all that "questionable". Now, if evidence has been located or the case doesn't have a birthdate, that's one thing. But we should not just assume that a case is questionable...there needs to be a reason to doubt it.Ryoung122 (talk) 03:33, February 2, 2018 (UTC)

  • There's no credible evidence that there is even a "claim" regarding a man named John William Douglas, born Aug 2 1904, and age 113. Despite having more than a year to produce evidence, Fred1949 has failed to provide a single document and there has not been a single news story on this claim.Ryoung122 (talk) 15:24, October 26, 2017 (UTC)

    • I know. That's why I said totally not in a sarcastic tone in a sarcastic tone.

      I personally don't believe Douglas' claim. Also, Fred1949's incessant pushing that John Douglas is 113 is getting very annoying.
