VerifyEdit

I could not confirm "from multiple countries" in the first paragraph. The source says "foreign". --Gryllida (chat) 01:44, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

EDIT CONFLICT: I didn't want to copy the source too closely and have people complain about "distance" again. It's out, though.
The sources do not say who specifically did the restoration or even which branch of the government supervised it. There's a quote from one restorer, but it's only said that he worked on "Palmyra," with nothing that he did any of the restorations for this museum in particular. If an additional source is needed for "authorities re-opened the museum," there's Radio Free Europe, but it's a fine enough line that I wouldn't automatically add another source to the workload. I changed some of the tenses as you asked but "is delaying" has to stay because "was delaying" means "isn't delaying any more; the delaying is over." In the context it's in, I'm confident this will not be misread. Darkfrog24 (talk) 01:46, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Ya, didn't know if they were from one foreign country or several. Cutting that out works, thanks. --Gryllida (chat) 02:33, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Would "Syria's National Museum re-opens after six years of war" or "Syria's National Museum re-opens after six years of civil war" be better? Which of this information is worth adding? Gryllida (chat) 02:35, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

I think "civil war" is a little better, but they're both good. Darkfrog24 (talk) 02:40, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

What is 'Palmyra'? The article does not say.Edit

I much prefer it when you talk about the article itself rather than making it about me as a person. Darkfrog24 (talk) 09:19, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
I much prefer it when you stick to the article on talk page. Unnecessary comments are better kept for talk pages, not article talks. So, again, any fix for the lack of explanation?

I notice that the anonymous editor reorganized the page before Gryllida made their comment, starting a new section.
My comment, "I much prefer it when you talk about the article itself," was a direct response to Gryllida's question "What is Palmyra? The article does not say" (talking about the article itself instead of me personally). In other words, Gryllida did things the way I happen to like, and I stated my preferences BECAUSE they did, like a compliment. Then the anon moved my comment in a way that changed its meaning. Don't do that.
Also, if you'd looked at the article, you'd have seen that the explanation was already added before you got here. You made the unnecessary comment. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:31, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Um, edit history does not suggest any anonymous editor removing any comment.

Oh shoot, Gryllida moved my comment?[1]
Well, sorry about the comment-moving bit, Anon, but I'm standing by the "check the article before complaining to me."
But yes, I don't like it when people make things personal. I find it much more productive to talk about the article, as Gryllida did in this case. Darkfrog24 (talk) 13:02, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the compliment, Darkfrog24. My comment, too, was misplaced; it was meant to be a reply to the anonymous comment. --Gryllida (chat) 03:39, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
