Category:Articles which may be biased[edit]

Back in 2006 you've [1] added a line to the Wikipedia:POV check page, referring to the Category:Articles which may be biased. However, this page doesnt work or exist (anymore). Can you fix it or remove it? -- Eiland 10:17, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

This is Wikipedia, where anyone can edit. If it needs to be fixed, you can always fix it yourself. -- ShinmaWa(talk) 18:10, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

The article has been fixed, and so now isgoing to the next stage: Speedy deletion.Harrypotter 23:10, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Robin Wood (environmental organisation)[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Robin Wood (environmental organisation) 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 a person or group of people, 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 indicate the subject's importance or significance 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 biographies.

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 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 would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 17:05, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

STOP[edit]

You have mangled the List of civilian nuclear accidents article and perpetrated a edit war over the contents.

This was noticed on the administrators' incidents noticeboard.

Please stop editing the article for the time being (talk page is ok and strongly encouraged to work out the dispute peacefully). I and others are going to have to clean it up. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 23:39, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Leonid Savin[edit]

I am somewhat puzzled as to why you think Mr Savin is not notable. The fact that some people involved in friends of the earth maybe embarrassed by the way he infiltrated them, just as he also infiltrated Peoples Global Action is not sufficient reason. Clearly he is notable as regards the Hoverla action, and that should be plain to anyone, even if they do not see his previous manouvres of no significance. I am also puzzled why you consider straight talking about the New Right malevolent?Harrypotter (talk) 00:04, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

See the Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Leonid Savin (2nd nomination) thread. -- Eiland (talk) 12:08, 6 June 2008 (UTC)


Your Edits to Core damage frequency[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Core damage frequency. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform a large number of reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring, even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Please do not repeatedly revert edits, but use the talk page to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. If necessary, pursue dispute resolution. DustiSPEAK!! 23:21, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

GreenFacts[edit]

Hi, Eiland. Could you kindly contact me at you best convenience, concerning the changes you made recently to the GreenFacts page. Indeed, some of them are incorrect, but as the former General Manager and still Vice-president of the organization, I would not like to revert them to avoid any potential conflict of interest. My contact detail are in my user page. Thanks, --Jacques de Selliers (talk) 20:03, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

I have added the "Criticism" talk section in the GreenFacts article concerning your modifications. Could you kindly reply? Thanks, --Jacques de Selliers (talk) 11:07, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Energy security[edit]

I'm very disappointed at the cherry-picking of the countries you listed as sources of uranium in Energy security [2], leaving out the largest producers (Canada and Australia). The actual list after all is in the short second paragraph of the Intro of Uranium mining (which you made a wikilink to [3]), virtually impossible to miss. Simesa (talk) 23:00, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, I wasnt the one who said it were "stable" countries. I didnt read the entire mining article, just linked it. My action seems to have gotten it fixed :) -- Special:Contributions/Eiland (talk) 12:29, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Contemporary circus[edit]

I'm curious, why do you think Circa doesn't match the definition of a contemporary circus? I've never seen one of their shows, but from the descriptions of their shows in reviews and on their website ("...reimagining circus as a contemporary artform...") ("Circa’s signature style – combining poetic physical beauty, extraordinary circus skills and an immersive use of sound, light and projection – is a thoroughly new kind of circus..."), it sounds like the quintessential nouveau cirque. It's character/relationship-based, it mixes traditional circus skills with modern dance and multimedia, the troupe performs in theaters, etc. etc. How would you categorize their shows? AtticusX (talk) 18:44, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Oh wait, I see what's going on. There are two companies called Circa: the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army, and the Brisbane-based Circa. The former is what you were saying was not a contemporary circus company... Yeah. AtticusX (talk) 18:46, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Robin Wood (environmental organisation)[edit]

Hi, Eiland. Regarding your question here, no, my recreation of the Robin Wood article was entirely original using the sources I found. I did notice the redlinked title on your talkpage and, after googling it, felt it certainly qualified as a notable subject and deserved at the very least a stub. I have restored your 2 edits from three years ago to the history of the article. Please feel free to work on expanding the article. Cheers. CactusWriter (talk) 18:13, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Elcert[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.

A tag has been placed on Elcert requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". 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 the page's talk page 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. 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.

Evelyn Waugh[edit]

Last October you added content to the Waugh article relating to his perceived antisemitism. I have moved this from the "Second World War" section to the "Character and opinions" section, which sems more appropriate. I have also modified the wording; to say "This is later understood as deriving from..." etc implies a general consensus, when you are stating the opinions of a particular observer. My main concern, however, is that the sourcing is incomplete. In what publication did Jonathan David Bittner's article appear? Who published it, and what is the date of publication? The link you have provided is not informative. Brianboulton (talk) 16:31, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your conscientious editing. In fact, I derived the information in first instance from the second quote, but as that is an old source and in print only, another editor complained, I believe even deleted it, so I reverted it and googled another reference, which is the one you are asking about, and I cant help you any further with that. For further question I'll have to point you to the second reference, which is only in print.If you really want to know more, maybe ask the author, Ton Heuvelemans, I think he's at http://nl.linkedin.com/pub/ton-heuvelmans/10/b7/3b5.
