Shall I AFD this as it is a poor article? ♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:03, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Rather let me have a go at adding info to it. There does seem to be some historical significance. And I have already linked a couple of articles to it :) Gbawden (talk) 12:05, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Exactly. So why not ask me to expand articles like Aangan rather than going straight to AFD? I've always supported the work you do on here. Given that most articles really need improvement and we have thousands of dubious articles, working together in good faith can only improve the website.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:21, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry. I didn't check who the page creator was and when I saw your name I realised that I had probably made a mistake. I have been trying to de-orphan articles and when I came across Aangan it looked like other articles that are created and just dumped. So in trying to clean out the rubbish I AfD'd your article. Once again my apologies Gbawden (talk) 12:29, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
That's OK, thanks for withdrawing. I've created Template:Nasir Hussain. He seems a pretty notable director. There are a lot of undeveloped stubs for Hindi films though. I'm pretty sure most can be expanded. If you come across one in future can you let me know? ♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:43, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
On an additional note, any chance you could archive your talk page? It's a whopping 372kb and takes a while to save even on my state of the art PC!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:45, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
I have been meaning to do this. let me see if i can figure it out Gbawden (talk) 13:32, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Naval Station Durban[edit]

Just letting you know that I've started an article on Naval Station Durban. Basically all I have so far is a paragraph on the current upgrade efforts and another on the original construction of "Naval Base Durban" during WW2. The history in-between will need some more research effort. I'll see if I can find some useful material on my bookshelf - which mostly covers the Border War/Struggle era. Meanwhile you are of course more than welcome to add to the article. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 16:54, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I will look in the books I have and add stuff on Monday when I am at the office with good internet Gbawden (talk) 06:13, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

I took a look at your sandbox - wow it's busy![edit]

The piece you have on SANDF Joint Ops looks almost ready for mainspace - once you add references of course. When you do take it to mainspace don't forget to add a note somewhere (a hatnote would probably be best) that the "Division" in the title does not refer to Division (military) but is used in the sense of "department". I hate how the SANDF is so sloppy with their abuse of terms that are supposed to have very specific meanings in a military context. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 09:53, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

I must really do a clean up :) I started stuff and left it when I realised I might not be able to meet GNG. Thanks - I will try reference it and move it. On another note - List of South African admirals - Yeah or Nay? The aussies have a similar list and I thought it might be useful Gbawden (talk) 09:57, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Greetings and... reply[edit]

Greetings Gbawden, thanks for your note regarding the proposed deletion of Slipstream – The Best of British Jazz-Funk. I wasn't particularly concerned about the proposed deletion, especially as I'm not too sure what the current policy for compliation albums is. However, precisely the following item on my Watchlist was another compilation album, Festen er ikke over... det er kake igjen, which you seem to have no objection to. At least the former has a reference, while the latter has none whatsoever. Am I missing something here? Regards, --Technopat (talk) 09:18, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Greetings again. Thanks for your reply. I agree with you that the label's motives in releasing the compilation are as you state, but that would certainly be applicable in both cases. Many, if not most of the bands included in the British compilation do actually do justice to the title, so I would argue that that compilation is relevant in the UK context–at least–just as the other would be in the Norwegian context–at least. However, as I mentioned above, I'm not up on the latest policy regarding compilation albums. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 09:41, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Not sure that a compilation album's notability is affected by the fact that it consists of works by one or several artists. On the other hand, regarding relevance, the British album is included in The Blackwell Guide to Soul Recordings, which possibly tips the balance slightly more in favour of "keep": Part Nine: Great Britain & the European Continent - Basic Recordings. I'll add that ref. to the article now. Regards, --Technopat (talk) 07:03, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Post mortem[edit]

Not only did he not live long enough to achieve much, he appears to have gone on composing (as opposed to composting...) for two years after his death. Indeed, his death took place a year after he was dead, if the article was to be believed. I deleted as hoax. If it wasn't, they can produce some evidence. Peridon (talk) 14:35, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
