New Page[edit]

Created talk page for our new article on the Tiananmen Square Massacre. DuceMoosolini (talk) 04:46, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

32 kB of legitimate information. Impressive. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 19:07, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
It needs more snark. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 19:11, 11 May 2018 (UTC)
I agree, but I think someone with a fresher view on the article than I have should do it. DuceMoosolini (talk) 12:10, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

No Reference on The Quotes[edit]

Hi. Recently DuceMoosolini did what he/she always does and reverted my contribution with no base. I haven't seen anything regarding Chinese media saying "innocent citizen" at their announcements, yet called protesters counter-revolutionary. I don't know as there is no reference at the quotes. --Comrade-yutyo (talk) 21:24, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

PS: Also he/she just reverted my entire contribution, which contained the based addition of "Free Market" as well. --Comrade-yutyo (talk) 21:24, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

The PRC's media is heavily slanted in favor of the CCP party line and is notoriously unreliable as a source. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:25, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
It's the PRC news as quoted by Amnesty International. It's literally the first line in the source. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 21:32, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

What is this reference Fowler was adding?[edit]

Displacing a major news source with ... a broken pdf link to a discount online store? What? I'll be the first to admit that CNN is garbage, but you don't solve that problem with extremely untrustworthy sources making claims no one else does. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 14:59, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I fucked it up amongst all the reverts. The broken link was Fowlers "new" link. I just removed it all and readd the CNN article which Howler originally misquoted, with correct info.Coigreach (talk) 15:07, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
I know, I was hoping they could explain what they were trying to accomplish with that. But now I see that you've blocked them, and we're unlikely to ever hear an answer. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 15:14, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
My guess is he's just trolling. His behavior is very reminiscent of certain TheFonz, who himself received lengthy block recently. But I only blocked Fowler for 3 days, since he ever so rarely manages to make somewhat coherent edits.Coigreach (talk) 15:17, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Its Fowler not howler (talk) 08:31, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
I added it cos there was a little bit at the end which i remeber reading about the "unknown titan" the tankman, where i think it said he was pulled into the crowd by cops. @Coigreach Fowler (talk) 09:13, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry it took this long to respond, I've been on a vacation. Anyway, if you can find actual verifiable source, I wouldn't object to you changing the wording. The CNN article however, only mentions onlookers. And the other link just didn't work. Also, please don't make changes based on something you think you remember reading somewhere. Verify the source before including it.Coigreach (talk) 20:39, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
I'll have a look for a good source, how was your vacation? Fowler (talk) 13:02, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

Debunk denialists[edit]

There should be a page about debunking denialists who a) believe that no one died or b) think the students deserve it. Maybe make a new article. Format should be similar to Holocaust denial. --Noobmaster420 (talk) 08:10, 11 September 2020 (UTC)


I would like to nominate this article for silver. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 20:58, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

I endorse as well. Coral (argue) 21:21, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
