Sociology of food[edit]

A tag has been placed on Sociology of food, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Victao lopes (talk) 23:14, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

I am the administrator reviewing this speedy delete request. I have declined it because I noticed it was added only 2 minutes after the article was first created, which may not have given you time to add any significant content. Please fill the article in soon if you wish to add additional content. If it remains in an empty state after a day or so, it can be deleted then. Best, --Shirahadasha (talk) 23:30, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Births / year of birth missing categorization[edit]

Hi! I've noticed you doing excellent work going through people needing birth cats - thank you! Am I right that you're keeping people you've put in Category:Year of birth missing (living people) up on those pages? I'd envisaged deleting those ones too, so others could see that they had been processed: what do you think would be most useful? Dsp13 (talk) 16:39, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Re: Births / year of birth missing categorization[edit]

Yes, I am currently working on removing people who are listed in Living people needing categorization by year of birth, which have been classified under (xxxx births). I had considered also (as you mentioned) removing those within Category:Year of birth missing (living people), but since they had not (technically) been "categorized by year of birth", I decided to leave them. As far as useful, I think having them in both increases the likelihood of proper categorization, and I have been putting them in Category:Year of birth missing (living people). If you do decide to remove those, let me know, and I won't bother, and thanks. EmanWilm (talk) 17:50, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

If you do want to leave them, maybe when you get to the end of a batch you could mark the ones left as having been categorised in this way - e.g. Batch XX 'only year of birth missing (living people) remaining' or whatever - just so people who come to the page will know the status of the different batches there. What do you think? Dsp13 (talk) 23:35, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

No problem, I'll label them appropriately EmanWilm (talk) 15:58, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I have added this info right under the batch numbers for the ones I've completed so far (batches 11-15):
  • only red links or year of birth missing (living people) remaining
let me know what you think.--FeanorStar7 (talk) 22:59, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! That should stop us wasting effort by going over the same material. I'm afraid I'd quite like to continue simply deleting the batches which I've gone through - it's a bit quicker, and the backlog is so huge that I just want to attack it as quickly as possible. If you've got strong objections to that, then do let me know, & I'll fall into line! Dsp13 (talk) 23:48, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
I agree with what EmanWilm said on his talk page about leaving the ones with year of birth missing in place because otherwise they might slip thru the net; on the other hand that category is there and if someone is working thru that list they will see it. If the person is not in the LC authority file, I don't do much more searching since there are so many; but there are times when I think it will be likely the birth date will be in the file (if the person is a published writer or musician) and usually I can get a birth year and thus can improve the page; so I don't have strong feelings, just observations. Anyway, my 2 pennies. -- FeanorStar7 (talk) 06:43, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Using Dschwen's excellent Link & category intersection tool allows a query for living writers with year of birth missing (takes a while, returns 1500 or so results) which looks good for running past the LC authority file.Dsp13 (talk) 12:33, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

World Future Council[edit]

I'm wondering why you've removed this category from Ibrahim Abouleish's page? Is he no longer part of the council? hgilbert (talk) 21:06, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, I see the category has disappeared. hgilbert (talk) 21:31, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Rookie of the Year (album)[edit]

This edit is inexplicable to me. Yes, the category needed to be created, but it is standard to have a category for "Artist name albums". I've reverted it and created the category. If my actions were erronious, please let me know. Thanks. - SummerPhD (talk) 14:13, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Place of birth missing[edit]

Hi. I noticed you are adding Category:Place of birth missing. This category (and the one for living people as well) has to be place in talk pages. Please read instructions given in the category's page. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 00:50, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Category:Place of birth missing (living people) reads "This category is for the discussion pages of living individuals whose place of birth is not indicated." So it goes to talk pages as well-- Magioladitis (talk) 23:39, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

I have removed the dated PROD template from CHEIF EXECUTIVE OFFICER. PROD is for articles only, not for redirects. Redirects may be taken to WP:Redirects for discussion. Cnilep (talk) 21:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Red Link Recovery/Capitalisation/42[edit]

I've been working my way through this page, but I'm going to stop for now because I see you editing it, too. Would you mind letting me know if you plan to finish it, so we don't conflict? Thanks! --Auntof6 (talk) 08:00, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Actually, no. I will continue to edit those pages as I see fit, this is a team effort, and I have absolutely no intention of altering how I work, simply because you were working on the same page. If there is a conflict, there is a really simple solution, hit the refresh button. I have been working on ALL the pages, for months. Thank you for your help with the project, but if you have any further comments on my work, please keep them to yourself. EmanWilm (talk) 16:34, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
Whoa! I wasn't commenting on your work, I was trying to coordinate what we were doing. Sorry for bothering you: I'll try to remember that you don't care to coordinate. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:15, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation links repair[edit]

Hi, I noticed you changed the link on Pinchas Menachem Alter to Bar Mitzva. Just wanted to let you know that the actual page is called Bar and Bat Mitzvah. Yoninah (talk) 20:13, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Templates with red links.[edit]

Hi. Please don't remove templates from the 2005 TRL pages. Their presence on those pages indicates that they are very old redlinks, and should be given top priority. Cheers! bd2412 T 20:39, 1 May 2010 (UTC)

OK EmanWilm (talk) 20:40, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. It's fine to remove things from the 2006 pages, they are just a snapshot of no particular importance now. bd2412 T 20:48, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see now, it turns out that if I had taken 10 seconds and read what was at the top of the page... yeah, sorry about that. EmanWilm (talk) 00:39, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
No big deal. I'm glad you're helping on this project, it's one of the bigger ones. bd2412 T 00:41, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Deletion of Template:WPC copyright guide[edit]

Hi there, I just noticed that this template has been deleted without even notifying me as creator that it was up for discussion. This was not an exact duplication of Template:WPOCopyright despite their visual similarity. This would have been evident if anyone had bothered to check all the links. Note also that it was not unused. It was transcluded here. They contained different links for Online research in the Guides section. Template:WPC copyright guide linked to a different Guide which was written for the needs of Wikipedia:WikiProject Composers. What's done is done, and I've got round the problem by linking the two different Guides in Template:WPOCopyright, although cumbersome. But I would greatly appreciate it if you would please not propose for deletion Template:WPC online research. This one likewise is especially adapted for WikiProject Composers despite its visual simlarity to Template:WPO online research. Or if you do, please leave a notice on my talk page. Thanks, Voceditenore (talk) 14:54, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'm sorry I missed one, tragic.EmanWilm (talk) 14:59, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion, guidelines for use at WP:MINOR). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and all users will still be able to manually mark their edits as being minor in the usual way.

For well-established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 20:20, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

United States presidential election in Alaska, 1996[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of United States presidential election in Alaska, 1996, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: United States presidential election in Wyoming, 1996. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 23:47, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Presidential Elections[edit]

First I would like to say thanks for contributing to presidential elections at the state level. I have worked my tail off over the years to create and add information about presidential election results at the state level. I'm really happy to see more wikipedia contributers. Just a few suggestions:

  • In the infobox, remember that a candidate needs at least 5% of the vote. Ross Perot fits this criteria in most states in 1992 and 1996. However, Nader hit that threshold in only a few states in 2000.
  • In the infobox, only one decimal point is needed (for example it's 5.8% not 5.77%)
  • Try to add as much information as possible. In the 2004 presidential election, I put pre-election predictions, polls, campaign visits, etc. The more information, the better.
  • Look at the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections at the state level. Refer to them.

Thanks a lot. Continue the good work!--Jerzeykydd (talk) 22:55, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
