3O filing declined[edit]

I have declined your request for a third opinion. One requisite for listing a case is that thorough discussion must have occurred at the Talk page in question. I see one post by you and two by the editor you are having a dispute with, which to my mind does not constitute "thorough discussion". Please continue discussing the matter there for the time-being. If you are unable to reach a compromise after additional discussion has occurred you are welcome to relist your request. Alternately, you are welcome to pursue other forms of dispute resolution.

As a side-note, when listing a request at 3O, you should use five tildes rather than the standard four. This will omit your name from the signature, which is standard practice at 3O to foster an atmosphere of neutrality. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 14:38, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of Ministries of Sri Lanka for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Ministries of Sri Lanka is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ministries of Sri Lanka until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Rehman 11:09, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I have at your request restored most of the articles on Ministers. Sport and Finance have been either doubly deleted or doubly redirected and the original texts are, at least to me, untraceable. You could try asking the other deleting admins.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 15:43, 6 February 2014 (UTC)


And now ne a wise man, and create a section at Talk page where you explain all of these issues. That will mkae it much harder to ignore your concerns, or simply remove the templates again. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 05:50, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I shall do that soon.--Blackknight12 (talk) 06:01, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Sri Lanka "Health Section"[edit]

In other country pages, information pertaining to mortality rate and other such information is categorized into the "Health" section, please consider adding or repairing, but not reverting this modification. I did not understand your reasoning, and would like to understand why this was reverted. Twillisjr (talk) 13:55, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for the message and not edit warring. Information related to health can be found in the Demographics section, however I don't think a section on health itself would be necessary as a summary of the country.--Blackknight12 (talk) 14:35, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure if you're familiar with the Sesame Street Song, "one of these things is not like the other" but it applies here. From A-Z, whether it be Angola#Health to Zimbabwe#Health or the ever popular Usa#Health, nearly every country besides this one has such a section. I'd appreciate keeping the uniformity of this encyclopedia and kindly ask you to revert. Twillisjr (talk) 11:51, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Executive Councils articles[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to explain my edits on the Executive Councils articles. The Executive Council of Ceylon was abolished in 1931 in accordance with Donoughmore Commission recommendations. Both Executive Council of Ceylon and List of Ceylonese executive councils wrongly said that it existed until 1947, I have corrected and provided refs.

In 1931 the Executive Council was replaced by the Board of Ministers. There were two Board of Ministers between 1931 and 1947 and they were known as the First and Second Board of Ministers (they were not named after the head of the Board of Ministers).

I have redirected three Executive Councils articles you created for the period 1933 to 1947 to the relevant Board of Ministers article. The Thomson executive council of Ceylon needs to be corrected to say that it only lasted until July 1931 when the First Board of Ministers came into being. I have also reverted three of your edits which removed Category:Members of the Executive Council of Ceylon. I guess you did this because you couldn't sub-categorise them into one of the officials categories but there are refs which say that these three individuals (Ponnambalam Arunachalam, K. Balasingam, Marcus Fernando) were members of the Executive Council so we should keep them in the category. Arunachalam joined the Executive Council in 1912 as a personal appointment of the Governor (even though he didn't hold any office of state at that time). The other two may have been non-official members appointed after 1924.--obi2canibetalk contr 14:49, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for that. I didn't know about the Board of Ministers. The Executive Councils were a work in progress so the research was to come later, so there are some placeholder links. Nevertheless I have updated the relevant articles. It would be if we could find some references specific each of the Executive Councils. As per the three individuals I think it would be better if they were placed in cats such as Category:Unofficial members of the Executive Council of Ceylon etc. relevant to their posts of course.--Blackknight12 (talk) 17:15, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
We should first find sources to confirm that Balasingam and Fernando were unofficial members before we add them to Category:Unofficial members of the Executive Council of Ceylon otherwise we may end up making the same mistake as the editor who created Executive Council of Ceylon article - adding factually incorrect information based on assumptions. Arunachalam wasn't an unofficial member - he was a unique personal appointment of the Governor and doesn't fall into a specific category.--obi2canibetalk contr 19:31, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

2014 ICC World Twenty20[edit]

Hi. Please could you explain your mass-removal of sourced content from this article, including, but not limited to, who won the toss in each match, MOTM, notes, etc? Thanks. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 12:24, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Nevermind! Just spotted those new spin-off articles. D'oh! Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 12:26, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Just improving the quality of the article. I have provided a rationale in the talk page. Thanks--Blackknight12 (talk) 12:49, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Sri Lankan Health ministers[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Sri Lankan Health ministers requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Blackknight12 (talk) 11:10, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

ICC World T20[edit]

hi, thanks for your info, i do agree with you. But in that page, there is no need of host coutry results as it is already highlighted as square box in the above table. Also, (^=host) is not necessary in the best result column as in the 50 over "ICC WORLD CUP". Any suggestions please revert back. Vin09 (talk) 10:09, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
