Amphoe and Thesaban[edit]

Hello, thanks for edits on the Thai articles. It seems you did fall into the same misunderstanding I myself fell before - the cities like e.g. Rayong are not identical with the Mueang district. The municipal (thesaban) areas (and this includes Pattaya which is a municipality outside the thesaban system) take over some of the tasks normally assigned to the district or province administration (most notably the sanitation), but they are still part of the district for the other tasks (e.g. civil registry). And while these municipalies are local administrative units, the districts as well as the tambon are directly controlled by the central government. andy 11:30, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:OER-3000-SSE10.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:OER-3000-SSE10.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 14:08, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Balabalagan Islands[edit]

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article Balabalagan Islands, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. Rambutan (talk) 17:28, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Balabalagan Islands[edit]

Balabalagan Islands, an article you created, has been nominated for deletion. We appreciate your contributions.

License tagging for Image:Lambang propinsi sulsel.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Lambang propinsi sulsel.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 20:09, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Coco Snatch[edit]

A tag has been placed on Coco Snatch requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. UtherSRG (talk) 20:00, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Carotenoid template[edit]

Hi, I recently saw you split off retinoids, carotenes, and xanthophylls into their own templates. I can't see any reason why we shouldn't have all the carotenoids in the same template, which actually helps navigation if the template is set up correctly. I've modified {{Carotenoids}} to reflect the members in each set, and that's the template I think we ought to use. I'm going to nominate Template:Carotenes, Template:Retinoids, and Template:Xanthophylls for deletion, as Template:Carotenoids is a better format for this information.

Buddhism[edit]

I reverted your edits on Buddhism tonight. I understand the point that you are trying to make, but there were a couple problems with the edit. One is that the definition of Buddhism in the intro is a controversial topic, and changes should really be discussed first on the talk page. The issue of Buddhism as philosophy vs. religion vs. multiple religions, etc., is not uniformly settled in published sources, and Wikipedia has to reflect that ambiguity, even if it produces a somewhat weak sounding intro. Second, the term 'idolatry' regarding religious practices is generally to be avoided as a NPOV issue. Some would argue that the veneration of images present in Buddhism and Hinduism is not idolatry as typically understood because it is the being that the image represents, rather than the image itself, that is worshiped; others would say that the issue of idolatry is inherently a POV that only makes sense in the context of the Abrahamic religions which prohibit it. Finally, your assertion regarding Buddhism's spread into the West is incorrect. Many temples exist in the West that practice Buddhism more or less just as it is practiced within Asian countries, and even more Westernized practice and study centers often include ritual elements such as bowing, chanting, making offerings to images of the Buddha, etc. The Talk:Buddhism page may have more details on these issues, or feel free to contact me on my talk page if you have questions. --Clay Collier (talk) 12:57, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Moving the paragraph that you're adding out of the intro is a step in the right direction, but it still has some serious NPOV issues with regards to the characterization of Asian and Western Buddhism. If you want to create a section on differences in practice between Western and traditional Buddhism and add some sourced information to it, or add it to the Criticism of Buddhism article, that would be fine. Otherwise, I think that you are going to find that it is going to be repeatedly reverted. --Clay Collier (talk) 13:13, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
I understand your point but saying that Western Buddhism is "not a complete religion", that Asian Buddhism contains idolatry, blind devotion and superstition are clearly in contravention of the NPOV policy. Saying that Westerners are confused by these things, that they lack cultural understanding, and that they are "sidestepping" the issue is also a violation of NPOV. Furthermore, you're making broad assertions about what Buddhism in Asia and the West are like in general without any source to back up that opinion. --Clay Collier (talk) 13:20, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Here's the thing: if sources exist to support it, it would be fine to say that Asian Buddhism is generally marked by an interest in protective charms, amulets, fortune telling, and the supernatural not generally encountered in Western Buddhism. If a source can be found for it, it would be fine to say that the significant differences in how Buddhism is presented to Westerners and how it is practiced in Asia makes it difficult for Westerner's to understand certain aspects of popular Buddhism in Asia. With sources, any of these sorts of statements would be fine. What isn't OK is saying that Asian Buddhists are blindly devout idolaters that worship money, and that Westerners are too culturally illiterate to understand what's going on. It might be true, and by and large I think it is, but that isn't how an encyclopedia would present it, and Wikipedia can't present the situation that way either. We need sources, and we need to state the situation in neutral language. --Clay Collier (talk) 13:29, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
This has nothing to do with my understanding of history. As I mentioned, I'm sympathetic to the point you're trying to make. What you need to understand is that the specific way in which you are making your point does not comply with Wikipedia:Neutral point of view and Wikipedia:Verifiability. --Clay Collier (talk) 13:37, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
part of verifiability is the pre-existing wikipedia articles. But my original point which was reversed was "Buddhism is a family of beliefs and practices considered by many to be a religion" are weasel words when clearly it is a "religion" or even family of religions and should be stated as such. I have a problem with the statement "considered by many to be a religion". It is a religion, and those who don't know shouldn't be writing about it. Doseiai2 (talk) 13:45, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Ignoring messages?[edit]

Please indicate that you have read the above about your contributions to the Indonesian project - we have considerable problems with uncited/unsourced articles - you have made no indication of what we have requested - any word in response will help. Lack of response can constitute nuisance editng when adding unsourced articles - thanks SatuSuro 04:53, 17 February 2009

File source problem with File:ID_Kai.PNG[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:ID_Kai.PNG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 13:00, 12 March 2009 (UTC).

Re item at my talk page[edit]

For a start thank you very much for responding - it is appreciated.

Your point is as valid as merbabus above - the problem is that the WP Indonesia project has a terrible legacy of english free editors dropping odd bits in and never returning to clean up there mess. Do you have the slightest clue where you are getting your information from? cannot you use it for ref purposes? SatuSuro 12:37, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

However, one of the points is that vast swaths of islands in Indonesia are completely missing from Wikipedia. You may think that is ok, but I don't

I am not personally really focused upon whether the 'ultimate list' of islands ultimately gets up on Wikipedia or not - there are WP:NOT issues in your assumption there - the point is as a traditional encyclopedia does not necessarily have every location in it - there are usually gazetteers as appendices to good encyclopedias for that sort of thing - I do not think that WP Indonesia has as an aim or end in a comprehensive listing of every nameable island of Indonesia - if you wish to do so maybe you need to find a good source while you are doing that and please dont expect any support if the afd hawks start watching you :) SatuSuro 05:16, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Re- your response at Merbabu's talk page[edit]

Ok you have been on for a few years now. Every time you edit an article at the bottom of the edit pane appears:- Encyclopedic content must be verifiable That means every time you create another Island article - yes it means you need something to verify that every article you have created is not a hoax.

Your response to Merbabu misses the point - all items with entries in Wikipedia should ideally have WP:RS for WP:V purposes - Islands are not existential stand alones - they do require proof.

If you are creating a new article - you need to offer up WP:RS each time - you are an experienced editor - you edit over a whole range of articles that show a particularly wide range of knowledge - surely that would follow that if you are capably of such editing - you can also identify the source of information about the obscure islands that you add to the WP Indonesia project. It is simple as that. And it would be appreciated if you could do so - and thanks for what you have added already and please keep doing so - but please a source or two. SatuSuro 12:37, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Red links[edit]

Please stop linking to articles that don't exist unless you create them *first*. This is not Indonesian wikipedia. --Merbabu (talk) 12:52, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Locator_Serang_Regency.png[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Locator_Serang_Regency.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:09, 20 October 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey (talk) 11:09, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Celebrity Fitness[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Celebrity Fitness requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 21:32, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but you removed a speedy deletion tag from Celebrity Fitness, a page you have created yourself. If you do not believe the page should be deleted, you can place a {{hangon}} tag on the page, under the existing speedy deletion tag (please do not remove the speedy deletion tag), and make your case on the page's talk page. Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. Thank you. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 21:39, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

An editor has nominated one or more articles which you have created or worked on, for deletion. The nominated article is Mainstream gay. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also Wikipedia:Notability and "What Wikipedia is not").

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mainstream gay. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

File:Locator Jabotabek Banten.PNG needs authorship information.[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Locator Jabotabek Banten.PNG appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided),authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which:{{subst:usernameexpand|Doseiai2}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:52, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Image source problem with File:Particles in alveolus.png[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Particles in alveolus.png.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 03:51, 30 October 2011 (UTC).

Re: List of the verified oldest known transgender[edit]

Hello. I was NPP'ing and noticed you created this article. An inclusion concern came to mind, but I don't want to drag you into one of the public fora like a noticeboard or something.

My concern is twofold, (1) does this article give undue weight to the transgender status of these people, and (2) is this categorization meaningful per Wikipedia:Categorization/Ethnicity, gender, religion and sexuality. You may be basing this article off of the inclusion of a different, valid categorization like Category:Transgender_and_transsexual_writers, but these exist only because the people listed therein write actively about transgender/transsex issues. However, while being transgender is very likely to be relevant to what a writer writes about, it is not at all relevant to how old a person can be (just as ethnicity, religion, etc. are not, hence why we don't have List of the verified oldest known Jews, List of the verified oldest known Muslims, List of the verified oldest known Wikipedia editors, and so on. Intelligentsium 01:00, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi again. Right now, list of oldest male/female exist because there is a clear correlation extensively supported by medical research between sex and longevity, and because this is the simplest and most universal biological binary for humans (thus all other variables are in effect controlled variables so the correlation is not because of something else). I am not saying it is not possible to be or identify outside this binary; what I am saying is that the correlation between intersex/transgender status and (extreme) longevity has not been studied or discussed in published literature, so we can't write about it. It might be in the future that a groundbreaking study is published on a statistically significant sample of transgender/intersex individuals showing such individuals tend to live much longer/shorter lives than their male/female peers and that this is a correlation independent of upbringing or environment. In that case, there would be no problem with having an article. Right now, however, it doesn't seem that is the case, just as it is not with Muslims or Hindus, or left-handed persons or persons favouring Brie cheese over Camembert cheese, for that matter, hence it is not appropriate to include any of these topics as an article.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited High-speed rail in Indonesia, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Indonesian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Quote boxes[edit]

Hello. Could you please elaborate on why you keep adding quote boxes to articles as an IP editor? [1][2] Most of the times there is no indication of actual relevance. I'd rather see more scholarly content added to Wikipedia articles. Quotes such as those you recently added may fit to news website articles, but not to an encyclopedic website. Also, I would advise you to read WP:SOCK, WP:V, WP:NOR, WP:RS and WP:DRIVEBYTAGGING. —Omnipaedista (talk) 07:03, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Objection to move of "Japanese Creation Myth"[edit]

Please send me a link to the move discussion, or revert the move, which is not supported by WP:RS.--Ubikwit 連絡 見学/迷惑 14:04, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

I reverted it myself. Doseiai2, please make a requested move if you want to move this article; I am not convinced that "story" is better than myth, and I doubt others will be. —Xezbeth (talk) 14:15, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you.
That was an absolutely baseless and arbitrary "move" based on personal religious bias/beliefs, and essential represents some form of POV pushing bordering on activism.
There is no correspondence between controversy with the name of the Genesis creation narrative and Japanese mythology. I suggest that Doseiai2 abstain from further "move" adventurism until such a time when you have acquired a degree of competence in Japanese religion and language.
Attempting such a surreptitious move without initiating a discussion could be seen as disruptive.

Marapu creation story[edit]

This is not, according to the article and Marapu, a story about the creation of the world. It also had no more information than the main article, so I've turned it into a redirect to the main article. I note that it actually had no source either. I did copy some material from it into the main article, but that was about the religion, not about the story, so was in the wrong place in any case. Dougweller (talk) 15:27, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

Old edit of yours at Sumbawa[edit]

Hey man, I noticed that about four years ago at the Sumbawa article, you asserted that the name of one of the tourist beaches there is "Supersuck." I just wanted to check to be absolutely sure that's really the name of the beach and not a typo. I mean...it does sound kind of weird, right? MezzoMezzo (talk) 10:07, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Very good page idea, and a suggestion[edit]

Hi. I saw your page 'List of places named after peace', a very good idea, thank you. On the anti-war and peace template I've changed it to 'List of places named Peace', which might be a good name for the page. I'm remembering Peacefield, John Adams and John Quincy Adams' home, as I type this, don't know if you've included it or not. Just wanted to both suggest the name tweak to see if you like it and to thank you for a nice page. Happy New Year to you, yours, and theirs. Randy Kryn 10:34 4 January, 2015 (UTC)
