Time phrases[edit]

Does anyone else think that phrases like "currently residing in France" should be changed to "was residing in France in xxxx", where xxxx is to be replaced with a specific year, or some similar formation? This is quite common in Wikipedia and could easily be out of date. I would like to hear your opinion on my talk page. Kipholbeck 05:25, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

This is the standard that has been decided on by the cabal of Asperger's riddled douchebags who run Wikipedia. You will NEVER be able to push that totally reasonable change through. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.171.176.55 (talk) 08:19, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

notability[edit]

It is currently unclear whether this person is notable enough for an article on Wikipedia, since no secondary sources are cited. By the notability criteria for biographies, independent reliable sources are required to make sure that the subject is notable. These sources might be, for example, significant press coverage about the person, or an independent biography.

Currently, the article only cites either primary sources (the person's own webpage), which are not independent, or self-published sources, which are not considered reliable.

Please cite independent sources in the article in order to establish notability. Otherwise the article might get deleted from Wikipedia.

For the time being, I am replacing the “importance” tag with “notability”. Sorted as part of the Notability wikiproject. --B. Wolterding 09:53, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Vipassana[edit]

I doubt that his Tibetan teachers chose not to indorse Vipassana, considering that it is one of the importants stages on the path, together with calm abiding practice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmlee369 (talkcontribs) 00:11, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
