Changing username[edit]

Hello. A bureaucrat or clerk has responded to your username change request, but requires clarification before moving forward. Please follow up as soon as possible. Thank you. –Juliancolton | Talk 14:54, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello. A different bureaucrat has a follow-up request wanting to know if you had some preference for the renaming of your account. The bureaucrat further said, "I suggest we default to a random username on or after Jan 10th." If you have any preference or objections could you please post it at your user name change request. My apologies for the late notification. delirious & lost~hugs~ 07:34, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Just a couple of tips. 1) Be careful not to log into Wikipedia (or other Wikimedia Foundation projects) using your old user name. 2) You will probably want to update your signature in Special:Preferences. 3) Secure the m:SUL on your new user name ASAP. delirious & lost~hugs~ 22:19, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

This account, -- -- --, has been blocked indefinitely from editing Wikipedia, because your username does not meet our username policy.

Your username is the only reason for this block. You are welcome to choose a new username (see below).

A username should not be promotional, related to a "real-world" group or organization, misleading, offensive, or disruptive. Also, usernames may not end in the word "bot" unless the account is an approved bot account.

Please choose a new account name that meets our policy guidelines. However, do not create a new account if you wish to credit your existing contributions to a new name through a username change. To request a username change:

  1. Add {{unblock-un|your new username here}} below. You should be able to edit this talk page even though you are blocked. If not, you may wish to contact the blocking administrator by clicking on "E-mail this user" on their talk page.
  2. At an administrator's discretion, you may be unblocked for 24 hours to file a request.
  3. Please note that you may only request a name that is not already in use, so please check here for a list of names that have already been taken. For more information, please see Wikipedia:Changing username.
If you feel that you were blocked in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first.

Your request to be unblocked has been granted for the following reason(s):

Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

You might want to look at the user name policy again. -- -- -- is neither offensive, disruptive, misleading, promotional, a company name, or an internet address. The one thing it is is non-English. It is Morse code. And just like above when i clerked the rename to -- -- -- i am also noting on this forced rename that -- -- -- was already approved as a user name by Avi. delirious & lost~hugs~ 21:04, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

The name was then reported to UAA by someone else; I couldn't find any evidence of the previous name change nor the new one. I did think it a little confusing; someone could possibly see the three dashes and think them a signature attribution. And we usually ask people with usernames that might be confusing to change them. We decided not to in this case, and I am sorry for any inconvenience this caused. Daniel Case (talk) 23:29, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

That is in part my bad. I used the same style of link that JC did (i changed it a few minutes ago for future reference). It is a very handy method to link but once a rename goes through it apparently creates the impression that the new user name is the subject of a rename. I never realised this was the result until i started looking at this this afternoon.
@ -- -- -- i am so sorry for the problems that my choice of linking method caused. Please add links to your signature. See my note below. delirious & lost~hugs~ 00:53, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings.

your signature[edit]

COPIED FROM MY TALK PAGE : Also, you are supposed to have at least one link to your user page or talk page. Given your user name i have this below suggested signature. You would go to Special:Preferences and paste it in to the section for a signature and then check the box to "Treat signature as wikitext". Feel free to change the colours if you don't like the random ones i selected.

-- -- --

Having the links to your user page, user talk page, and contributions should remove issues around your user name and the appearance that it is a typographical error. The above was on my user talk page earlier this month but maybe you just never read it. It really should have been put here to ensure you got the message. I am sorry. If i had put this message here you likely would have never had to deal with this. Without the links in your signature you are almost certainly going to continue to have issues. delirious & lost~hugs~ 00:10, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Vien (Hasidic community)[edit]

Can you please explain why you created this page with a speedy deletion template? It shouldn't have been holding up the move until you created the page. What am I missing here? --Selket Talk 03:37, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for showing interest. Vien (Hasidic dynasty) is about a Hasidic community which is not led by any rabbinical dynasty. There does exist, however, a Hasidic dynasty known as Vien (that of the ZEGELBAUM family) which deserves its own article. I read the instructions at Wikipedia:Requested moves, but couldn't figure it out (see talk page). I apologize for any confusion I might have caused.

Help please - Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Hi there, you may be aware that it is policy for all biographies of living people (BLPs) to be referenced to reliable sources. There is currently a WikiProject - WP:URBLPR - attempting to reference all Unreferenced BLPs. One article that I have just tried to reference is Yeshaya Labin. As his title sounds fairly important, I won't nominate him for deletion, but I would ask if you could assist in finding and adding at least one reference from a independent reliable source. It doesn't have to be an online source, it could even be in Hebrew, I'm just struggling to find anything online. Thanks for any help you can provide. Regards, The-Pope (talk) 15:00, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

User:-- -- --/Template:Uw-delete1 revised[edit]

Hi-I see now that you are using your own subpage template for a user warning, but wouldn't it be better to use the official Template:uw-delete1? Otherwise, the incremental process for uw-1, uw-2, etc. won't work for Twinkle on your subpage template; if someone else using Twinkle warns the same user, then they'll be starting at level 1 also, instead of level 2, because Twinkle wouldn't be able to read your template warning and which level it is. --Funandtrvl (talk) 00:35, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. One reason why I didn't like the official template is because the template assumes that the edit is recent, which might not be the case. Would it be OK if I modify the wording manually (without actually changing the template) like I did here? Or, perhaps should the official template be modified? (I have already consulted the template's talk page here). -- -- -- 21:41, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I see the problem with the word "recent", but if I find an edit that needs to be reverted, and it's an old edit, I sometimes use the template anyways, or just rvv without warning the IP, if there have been many vandal edits on a page. I use WP:HUGGLE, and the incremental warning system goes back to the 1st level, I think after about 1-2 days, if the editor hasn't made anymore unwanted edits since then. That's why I think the word "recent" is in there, because Huggle and Twinkle assume that vandal may have gone away by then. :-) --Funandtrvl (talk) 22:11, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bernard Friedberg[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Bernard Friedberg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The subject appears to be non-notable and does not meet WP:AUTHOR.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Armon HaNetziv[edit]

Please be informed that the correct spelling is Armon HaNetziv, with an "e" and a capital "N". If any newspaper, or whoever, will spell it differently, as happens quite often, this is a mistake, and Wikipedia should not copy that mistake. Explanation: the word for governor (in this case referring to the British High Commissioner for Palestine), is "netziv", that you can check in any Hebrew dictionary. And according to WP:HEBREW, the letter coming after "Ha" should be capitalized. By the way, you can check the website of the Jerusalem municipality to see how they spell it. Should be okay. Debresser (talk) 11:41, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. No need to notify me. Just cite your source so that other editors shouldn't have the same mistake as I had. -- -- -- 02:12, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
The first source in that article is a link to the Jerusalem municipality. If you enter in their search "Talpiot Mizrah", you'll see it spelled "Armon Hanetziv". Add to that the rules of WP:HEBREW that after "ha" should follow a capital in proper names, and there you are. Debresser (talk) 10:32, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Haredi Judaism[edit]

I am tempted to undo this edit, except if you can convince me otherwise.

  1. The article provides a link to the verse in Isaiah 66:2: וְחָרֵד עַל-דְּבָרִי and its archaic translation, and trembleth at My word, which I changed to Modern English trembles. So you can see why the words one who belong in brackets.
  2. I'm pretty sure that the word word in the phrase The word connotes refers to the word trembles (hared, וְחָרֵד) and not to the word word (דְּבָרִי); so why the added quotation mark glyphs? -- -- -- 21:12, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
