Dear Dwpaul, I am Manuj Bhaskar, the actor who has played the character of Ved Vyas in the 2013 Mahabharat by Swastik Pictures. The name of some Atul Misra that was showing earlier was an error. Kindly do not re-edit the correction that I have made. Thank you. Regards, Manuj Bhaskar - Actor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Manuj Bhaskar - Actor (talkcontribs) 05:16, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

There are numerous incidents on the Web of "Atul Misra" mentioned as the actor playing the role of Ved Vyas in this production, and none at all that I can find of you "Manuj Bhaskar" doing so. I remain unconvinced that you are who you claim to be and that your edit of Mahabharat (2013 TV series) is legitimate, but at least for the time being I will leave this for other editors to sort out. However, please be aware that I am watching your edits and will revert any where I can find reliable sources that show them to be false. Dwpaul Talk 13:53, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Camillo Bregant[edit]

It makes not much sense, when you fudge between, while i was trying to correct my article aboot Camillo Bregant. It would have been better, you correct it yourself, and i woulndnt have so much efforts, although my english is not so bad.--Hamilkar1893 (talk) 13:36, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

@Hamilkar1893: It was, and is still, entirely unclear what it is you were trying to "correct" with this edit, and time had elapsed since you made it with no further edits. Also, this (direct insertion of the asterisk or dagger character) is not how notes and footnotes are inserted in Wikipedia articles (assuming that's what you intended to do eventually). See WP:FOOT for discussion. Dwpaul Talk 13:44, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

A little bit slower would be appropriate and do not be so arrogant and know-it. I try to bring in from the German an interesting article. Look at the other military articles--Hamilkar1893 (talk) 14:21, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Please focus on improving the article rather than arguing with me; rather than resolving the issue, your comments above about me could be interpreted as an uncivil attack on another editor. You have indicated that your edit was constructive, contrary to my impression at the time that it was not. Both viewpoints could be valid. I will be interested to see the constructive effect of your editing on the article, when you actually complete the changes you claim to have in mind. So far, I have not seen them.

@Hamilkar1893: So I have taken your advice and looked at some other military articles you have edited, e.g., Eugen Bregant. Here also you have used a notation that includes "*" before the birthdate and "†" before the date of death. It is entirely unclear to me what you are intending to indicate with this notation, and it is not part of Wikipedia's conventions pertaining to the formatting of dates of birth and death in biographical articles. What are these notations supposed to signify? Dwpaul Talk 15:19, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
@Hamilkar1893: I think I have found the answer here (second paragraph):

[I]n European typography, dates of birth are marked with an asterisk and deaths with a dagger ...

However, this is not the European Wikipedia, and this is not how our Manual of Style here calls for dates of birth and death to be formatted (see MOS:BIRTH#Dates of birth and death). Please stop inserting these characters in this fashion in articles here. Dwpaul Talk 15:28, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

In German wiki one uses * for born and "†" before the date of death, if you have a look, you will see, that all the articles in German are in this way. For example You should also see my anger, i was working for more than half an hour - for nothing. The article exists also in german, italkian and slovenian language. --Hamilkar1893 (talk) 10:45, 22 August 2014 (UTC) the german version of an article concerning a british general, all articles in slovenian, german, swedish etc. are written in this way, it seems to be, that in english they are going a special way like always very egocentric.--Hamilkar1893 (talk) 10:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC) I have tried to improve the article about Camillo Bregant. Do you mind to have a look at it?--Hamilkar1893 (talk) 10:10, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Keegan Allen[edit]

Hi! So, I wanted to explain why I made the changes on Keegan Allen's page. Is known that he was born in California, so I went to the California Birth Index online page, and I searched for Keegan Allen, but there wasn't a Keegan Allen born in 1989. If you search for Keegan Allen in the C.B.I. , the only Keegan's you're gonna found is a Keegan born in 1984 and in 1987, so I assumed it was the Keegan born in 1987, because Keegan's mom last name is Snyder, and this Keegan's mom last name (born in 1987 - on the California Birth Index) is Snyder.

Thank you (: - 12:50 / 22-08-2014 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lovelessnessxo (talkcontribs) 11:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The key word above is assumed. All content introduced here, especially in biographical articles, must be verifiable using published sources which must be cited with the new content.

I recently completed a journey across America, I walked 1,600 miles from Oregon to Eastern Nebraska, where I then rode a bicycle the next 1,600 miles to Connecticut. How do I get this posted on Wikipedia --Donnaswalkacrossamerica (talk) 17:57, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

@Donnaswalkacrossamerica: Visit Wikipedia:Requested articles and submit a request by following the instructions there. If your accomplishment is notable (by which I mean it received sufficient independent coverage in reliable sources to make it verifiably so) then another editor will probably take up your request. Please do not write the article yourself; see WP:Autobiography. Dwpaul Talk 02:02, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
