Hello and welcome[edit]

I reverted your addition to the Yemen article because the text was lifted from the website that you cited. One look at the website and it was clear that it is not a recognizable authority on Yemen. Happy editing. Dawnseeker2000 15:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Well I looked around and found that I may have acted too abruptly. The website claims the material is from the United States Department of State. That may very well be true. There are other websites that contain the same material.
If it is indeed material that was generated by the US government then it's likely in the public domain and has a non-copyright status. We could then use the material and put the {{StateDept}} template on the article which states the same. This would be a much preferred method than linking to a relatively no-name website as the source of the material. Dawnseeker2000 15:44, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Shanghai[edit]

Hi!

Thanks you for finding a source for the unreferenced demographics in Shanghai. However, the source (from 2004) of course differs from the census of 2000 where the data are allegedly from. Could you please edit the part according to your source? Thank you! -- BsBsBs (talk) 14:11, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Earthquake, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Magnitude (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
