DYK for Shakespeare coat of arms

Updated DYK query.svg

On 24 November 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Shakespeare coat of arms, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Shakespeare coat of arms.

Esra Bilgiç "Controversy" addition--

Hi Grabergs -- thank you for the warm welcome and Wiki guideline explanations (I'm new to this!) I firmly believe the aforementioned section is warranted & necessary as this particular 'incident' caused a significant uproar when it happened (hence the Dawn article; there are others as well). I've eliminated some adjectives and have just stated the bare facts in this new edit; is it appropriate now? Thanks again :) Rosewatergul (talk) 01:58, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

@Rosewatergul, thanks for talking and again welcome! You may be new but so far you are doing things right!
I did a rewrite [1], see what you think. You went a bit beyond what the source said (but less so than the first time), and per WP:BLP (if you stick around you will encounter a lot of these policies and guidelines) we need to be very careful when we write about living people. Also, separate controversy/criticism sections should be avoided if possible, as they tend to become shit-magnets (WP:CRITS). I did a quick googling, but didn't see any other WP-useful sources than the one you used.
You've reminded me of the Talk:Esra_Bilgiç#Negative_reaction_BRRD discussion, I may look into that again. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 12:08, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Thank you so much! Your solution is perfect and it fits the article as a whole much better this way (as opposed to within a separate unnecessary section). Your rephrasing is on point too! Thanks again and I will read through all those helpful guides you linked :) Have a good day! Rosewatergul (talk) 21:29, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Forgot to add, the other news sources are in Arabic and Urdu. :) I will find them again & perhaps include them in the citations :) Rosewatergul (talk) 21:33, 7 December 2021 (UTC)

Non-English sources are ok, some guidance at WP:NOENG. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 11:03, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Reaching out

This is Noam Cohen, I write about Wikipedia a bunch. I want to write about the editing to the North Platte, Nebraska, article and would like to interview you about it. Can you email me at noamstuart at or via my Wikipedia page. Talk soon, Chomsky1 (talk) 21:38, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

@Chomsky1 Thanks for asking, but I decline. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 22:40, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

Edits / amendments to James Rowe


  • Youth Coaching Career*

- Point 1 - In article 21 it clearly states James left his role and was not dismissed - Point 2 - nor does it say anything about numerous complaints of impropriety in relation to young players in the academy - Point 3 - it does not say he was banned from the FA and this is a false statement as he never has been -Point 4 - the article can’t be read by anyone that isn’t a subscriber and therefor it shouldn’t be used as a reference

Legal action will be taken against the IP address that has made these slandering statements today please make amendments immediately.

Nothing in this statement is well sourced as commented by yourself. Rosie0706 (talk) 10:13, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

@Rosie0706 Take discussions about James Rowe (footballer, born 1983) to Talk:James Rowe (footballer, born 1983). You have been on WP since June, so you know about article talkpages by now. Also, very important, see Wikipedia:No legal threats. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 10:20, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

I sincerely hope your holiday season goes well this year especially with what we went through last year. I'm optimistic that 2022 will be a better year for all of us: both in real life and on Wikipedia. Wishing you the best from, Interstellarity (talk) 18:57, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

Merry Christmas!

Hi Grabergs Graa Sang! I just wanted to say thanks for all you do around here, and especially for your help at BLPN. It's such an important policy, and I'm glad we have people like you around to help. I wish you a very happy holiday season, and may the coming year bring you great joy and good fortune. And, if you don't celebrate Christmas, then please take it as a Happy Hanukkah, a great Dhanu Sankranti, a blessed Hatsumode, a really good Saturday, or whatever holiday you want to insert there. Zaereth (talk) 08:42, 25 December 2021 (UTC)

@Zaereth Thanks and a Merry Christmas to you too! Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 11:43, 25 December 2021 (UTC)

Maybe it shows: the discussion fills me with actual pain. It's 2022: artists sing their songs, tell their stories, paint their visions, and all that's perceived is only the color of their skin (broadly sepaking). –Austronesier (talk) 20:39, 14 January 2022 (UTC)

There is too much of that, absolutely. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 20:42, 14 January 2022 (UTC)
