St Louis Rams[edit]

You merged two items that are not the same. Why? Thanks, GerardM (talk) 06:06, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

@GerardM: I cannot find any evidence that there are or were two different teams called the Los Angeles Rams. See, for example, en:History of the Los Angeles Rams. Also, there was and is no information on no label (Q18574062) suggesting they aren't the same team. I must be missing something. Can you please explain why you think they're different entities? Thanks, Bovlb (talk) 21:58, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
You do not get it. The St Louis Rams are not the Los Angeles Rams. That only happened later. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 04:17, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
@GerardM: Thanks for following up. I'm afraid I still can't make out what point you're making. Are you (a) saying that there was a distinct team by that name (apparently not mentioned in the relevant Wikipedia article); or (b) are you suggesting that a sports franchise becomes a new entity whenever they change their name? Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 15:20, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
People who were playing in St Louis are in a separate category. It figures that people understand it to be destinct. When a club "moves" a franchise it has been sold and it is distinctly different as a consequence. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 05:23, 7 May 2016 (UTC)


What is meant to be the difference between mask (Q161524) and no label (Q26699961)?--Pharos (talk) 21:33, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

@pharos: Sorry to be slow to respond. no label (Q26699961) is a more general class that encompasses both mask (Q161524) and protective face mask (Q26699965) and distinguishes between the disguise and protection aspects. This query shows how some of the subclasses distribute between the two. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 02:28, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Oksana Mysina[edit]

Hello. You're not right. She was born in the USSR, the citizenship of the USSR was until 1991, Russian citizenship — after 1991. ( 1922–1991) 16:50, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@ You removed and added the claim that she is a citizen of Russia. I merely restored the reference to the Russian Wikipedia as a source. On ru:Мысина,_Оксана_Анатольевна it says her citizenship is "USSR → Russia", which seems consistent with saying she now has Russian citizenship. Cheers, Bovlb (talk) 17:11, 29 June 2018 (UTC)


You were right: anti-abortion was wrong. Anti-LGBT is correct and I adjusted accordingly. Thanks, 14:47, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
