Miguel de Cervantes[edit]

I removed the two paragraphs you added to the start of the Cervantes article. That sort of content should go on the Talk page (found via the "discussion" link at the top of the page) rather than in the article itself. In addition, I'm not comfortable with anything that dissuades users from contributing; even if a user's English skills aren't strong, he may have content worth contributing that other users will happily clean up later. | Keithlaw 21:54, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

Project Gutenberg[edit]

Criticism is OK, but please make sure that it's adequately sourced - original research ("I've checked X books there and none of them mentions what edition they digitised.") isn't allowed. Also, please use neutral wording - "is blissfully unaware of [...] various versions or translations" is a biased statement (and one that would be hard to prove), "doesn't state which edition or translation the digitised text is based on" would be more neutral. --Six words (talk) 07:23, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Your message on my talk page[edit]

I replied to your message on my talk page, but I've moved the conversation to the article's talk page as that's the best place to discuss an article. I also noticed that you didn't sign your post, here's some information on how to do that.

When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you and I hope you like Wikipedia and decide to stay. Experts are always appreciated. Just make sure you back up what you write with reliable sources (see WP:REFB for instructions on how to do that). Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 01:33, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Edit warring...[edit]

Daniel, sorry but please use the article Talk page to discuss edits instead of repeatedly reverting. Repeatedly reverting may be considered edit-warring, and can result in a block, especially if you do more than 3 within a 24-hour period, see WP:EW and WP:3RR. Zad68 01:43, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

yes please come talk. Jytdog (talk) 01:51, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Silk Road[edit]

Hi Daniel. In the Silk Road (marketplace) article I have removed your edit, "Silk Road has been said to reduce violence connected with the traditional illegal drugs trade." This is because, 1) it is in the "Criticism" section, and it is not a criticism, and 2) it may be true, but it needs a reference, otherwise it is hearsay. - Oniscoid 09:33, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, the new section and the refs are fine, and it's a valid point. Though as an aside, the current annual trading volume of illegal drugs on Silk Road is approx US$50M; whereas the annual total trading volume worldwide of illegal drugs is approx US$500B, (10,000 times greater); though Silk Road may be physically safer for its users, it is unlikely to have a major effect on violent crime statistics. - Oniscoid 15:02, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

References[edit]

Please use high quality references per WP:MEDRS such as review articles or major textbooks. Note that review articles are NOT the same as peer reviewed articles. A good place to find medical sources is TRIP database Thanks.

Deletion discussion about Nifty erotic stories archive[edit]

Hello, Deisenbe,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Nifty erotic stories archive should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Nifty erotic stories archive .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

September 2014[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Middle Ages shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Repost of Porn for the blind[edit]

Information icon A tag has been placed on Porn for the blind requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.svg which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you. • Gene93k (talk) 19:01, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Campaign for "santorum" neologism[edit]

You need a published source making that observation. We don't just add random comments made by editors to articles. --NeilN talk to me 18:17, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Why this policy[edit]

In answer to your question about "why this policy" at the OR notice board, I pointed you to some better venues to have that discussion. However, in the spirit of discussion, my own answer to the question has to do with Wikipedia's need for verifiability. We are trying to build an encyclopedia that the public can turn to for reliable information. In order to do so, we rely on the fact that the information presented here has been published elsewhere in a reliable source first. We count on the fact that those reliable sources are exercising some level of editorial review so that facts published in them can be reasonably relied on to be true. When users publish their own original research, we have no idea of the validity of that information. Because of Wikipedia's anonymous user accounts, we don't even have a reasonably expectation that "experts" are who they say they are. So, by banning original research, we maintain a higher level of verifiability. Make sense? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 23:04, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Translators of Miguel de Cervantes[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice that Translators of Miguel de Cervantes, a page that you created, has been tagged for deletion. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may be soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

  • It appears to be a test page. (See section G2 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do, and take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.
  • It is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. (See section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion.) Wikipedia has standards for the minimum necessary information to be included in short articles; you can see these at Wikipedia:Stub. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to 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, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Recent edit to Cauldron (disambiguation)[edit]

Information.svg Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Your recent edit to Cauldron (disambiguation) added the name of an apparently non-notable entity. In general, a person or organization added to a list should have a pre-existing article to establish notability.

Mater lectionis[edit]

The use of the word abjad to mean "consonantal alphabet" is a somewhat recent neologism, which is by no means universally accepted, so there would need to be further explanation for it to be used in that article. (Also, "consonant" has no "e".) -- AnonMoos (talk) 04:41, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

It’s sad Sabrina Erdely’s article wasn't better investigated[edit]

As a father of a beautiful daughter, I am saddened that Sabrina Erdely’s Rolling Stone article about the alleged gang rape wasn’t better investigated. I think the discussion our society needs to continue having about handling rape better has been hurt because Erdely didn’t investigate the allegations more before publishing. The article could have started a discussion about how to reduce rape on colleges; it has instead become a discussion about what really happened to Jackie. Samboy (talk) 23:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Polyamory[edit]

Hi. I'm happy to clarify what the problem is. We cannot make the assumption that all non-monogamous relationships are polyamory. There are other forms of non-monogamy: for example, open relationships, open marriage, and swinging. Polyamory is very specific: all relationships must be love based, which is not true for the other examples.

In addition, we must have a source which specifically calls the relationship "polyamorous". As Wikipedia editors, we are not allowed to draw conclusions: if there is not a source that refers to a relationship as polyamorous, we cannot call the relationship polyamorous. Drawing conclusions from facts is called original research which is not allowed on Wikipedia.

In addition, with respect to living people, a third-party source is not sufficient. For a living person, that person must refer to themselves as "polyamorous" or call their relationship "polyamory", that is, they must self-identify using the term in a reliable source that we can cite in the article to support use of the word. In the case of Robert Rimmer, I don't believe the word "polyamory" had even been coined at the time where he became notable for what he referred to using different terms!

Finally, no categories cannot be added to articles without cited support for the category in the text of the article. In particular, we cannot engage in polyamory activism by classifying relationships as polyamorous simply to build up the category. There must be clear sources which specifically use the word with respect to the subject of the article.

Don Quixote/Don Quijote[edit]

Thanks for your note, Deisenbe. Good question. I appreciate that it's inconsistent to spell "Novelas ejemplares" with J, but "Don Quixote" with X — but to my understanding these are both customary usage in English. I take questions like this to the Google Books Ngram Viewer <https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=Don+Quixote%2CDon+Quijote&year_start=1800&year_end=2000&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2CDon%20Quixote%3B%2Cc0%3B.t1%3B%2CDon%20Quijote%3B%2Cc0> to see what is the most frequent form. DQ was translated to English in 1612 (Shelton); I speculate that the Novelas were not translated until much later, and that this is the reason for their different treatment.

Nomination of How to learn a foreign language for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article How to learn a foreign language is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

Your contributed article, How to learn a foreign language[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, How to learn a foreign language. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Language education. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Language education – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to 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, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:40, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Your draft article, User:Deisenbe/Easton mountain[edit]

Hello Deisenbe. It has been over six months since you last edited your WP:AFC draft article submission, entitled "Easton mountain".

The page will shortly be deleted. If you plan on editing the page to address the issues raised when it was declined and resubmit it, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code. Please note that Articles for Creation is not for indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you want to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by one of two methods (don't do both): 1) follow the instructions at WP:REFUND/G13, or 2) copy this code: {{subst:Refund/G13|User:Deisenbe/Easton mountain}}, paste it in the edit box at this link, and click "Save page". An administrator will in most cases undelete the submission.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. JMHamo (talk) 23:04, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Addition of categories[edit]

Please note that you cannot just add any category to an article. The article must have cited content that supports the addition of the category. We've discussed this before. Skyerise (talk) 13:08, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
