Kizuna bridge[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Kizuna bridge, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Kampong Cham District. 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 moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 20:58, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

The Kizuna bridge description under the Kompong Cham district should be removed as a new page is created for that bridge itself

--Laurentleap (talk) 21:02, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Kizuna bridge[edit]

I also feel two pages are unnecessary, hence why I redirected it. There isn't enough information to justify an article, particularly when it is covered sufficiently elsewhere. As a result of the redirect, anyone searching for "kizuna bridge" is directed to the other page, which includes info on the bridge. Ironholds (talk) 20:01, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

I don't have anything against it, except that it was unreferenced and already covered. If you can provide reliable sources covering the bridge (and the bridge, not covering the town with a single mention of "kizuna bridge") and write enough to justify an independent article, I'm fine with putting something back in. Until then, it stays as a redirect. Ironholds (talk) 22:35, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

List of countries by Muslim population[edit]

Bonjour! Your deletion [1] of Islam in Ecuador from the List of countries by Muslim population has me puzzled. After checking the source, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life's October 2009 report, 'Mapping the Global Muslim Population: A Report on the Size and Distribution of the World's Muslim Population', I re-inserted the text in question. Please let me know if I am mistaken. Merci beaucoup! — Kralizec! (talk) 14:07, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Deletion discussion[edit]

Can you help with Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Meng Keo Pichenda? We need Khmer speakers. Fences&Windows 22:15, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Sorry I'm not fluant in Khmer, I'm only learning

--Laurentleap (talk) 21:39, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

No problem. The article was kept. Fences&Windows 21:06, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Keo Sarath[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Keo Sarath 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 important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles 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. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

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 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 19:05, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

You can post the article again, but you need to include references from independent, reliable sources so that we can verify that Sarath meets notability standards. This is now a requirement for biographical articles on Wikipedia. It would help if these were in English, given that the subject is not from an English-speaking area. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 20:27, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

July 2011[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Germany. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Cognate247 (talk) 15:25, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Pilot Polder Andijk[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Pilot Polder Andijk has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

no sources, no context, notability in doubt

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —EncMstr (talk) 05:15, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Re: A cookie for you![edit]

You're most certainly welcome Laurentleap, thanks for the cookie! :)  -- WikHead (talk) 09:26, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In Delta Works, you recently added a link to the disambiguation page Lock (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. For more information, see the FAQ or drop a line at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 10:33, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Feu maritime at fr.wiki[edit]

Salut Laurent, please note that Leading lights are a special sort of maritime signals, so an interwiki link to the very general fr:Feu maritime as you introduced is not suitable. Please consider also changing the interwiki links at the French article to more general articles. De728631 (talk) 20:55, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for writing IJgeul! :-) Romaine (talk) 09:43, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User Laurentleap:drift[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.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. This is a notice that the page that you created was tagged as a test page and has been or soon may be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Yasht101 14:21, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry: this page hasn't been deleted and won't be deleted unless you change your mind and want it to be deleted. I've moved it to User:Laurentleap/drift, because the title "User Laurentleap:drift" makes the software think that it's an encyclopedia article. To make a page show up in your userspace, you absolutely must place a colon between "User" and "Laurentleap", because that's the only way that the software will know what you're trying to do. Nyttend (talk) 14:32, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
By the way, if you're trying to get information, the reference desk is a good place to go for help. It's divided into several sections for different kinds of questions; for example, there's a science desk. Nyttend (talk) 14:33, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of List of cathedrals in Cambodia[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 List of cathedrals in Cambodia requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. 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.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

Ways to improve English Phonotypic Alphabet[edit]

Hi, I'm Anne Delong. Laurentleap, thanks for creating English Phonotypic Alphabet!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. I hope you will add more information about this interesting alphabet. Please add some inline citations. Good luck with your editing. —Anne Delong (talk) 02:22, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Marker Wadden[edit]

I really don't understand the speedy deletion of the article Marker Wadden. It's a project which, I understand, will start in 2014. Is it because of the lack of references ? That strange attitude is discouraging. --Io Herodotus (talk) 20:56, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

You have to demonstrate notability using reliable sources. Don't be discouraged – this is a basic filter needed to deal with the mass of daily articles. Even an article by an admin like myself would be deleted if it doesn't clearly show the notability of the subject. INeverCry 23:26, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry I did not respond to you sooner -- I'm not nearly as active at WP as I once was. I am also not an admin, so I am afraid I cannot be of help. Sorry. - Realkyhick (Talk to me) 01:33, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Your move of Netherlands (terminology) to Netherlands (toponymy)[edit]

I just noticed this move. Was there a problem with the former name of the article, and had you discussed the move with anyone before you made it? Please note that the word "terminology" in a common one in English, whereas while "toponymy" may be technically more precise, it is a word that no one other than a professional geographer is likely to have heard of. Unless there is some reason not to, I am inclined to return the article to its original location, but I will be glad to consider your reply first. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 20:48, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

I thought etymology is too vague and toponymy would be more accurate. That's all.--Io Herodotus (talk) 09:01, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

Sala delle Asse[edit]

You beat me to it! I was just about to create this article. Great minds think alike... Leonardo da VinciTalk 16:15, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I've adjusted the lead to what I think it translates as, also added a link for the castle. Leonardo da VinciTalk 11:40, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

"Axis" doesn't make sense in English, even though it might technically be a direct translation. Anyway, I would trust "Google translate" about as far as I could throw it. In my experience it has made many errors. Even if it were correct in this instance, sometimes an adjustment is required to give meaning in translation as every language has its own rules for semantics. Leonardo da VinciTalk 12:03, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

It could be the axis of the castle or something else. Where did you get your translation from? ('tower' or 'wooden boards')--Io Herodotus (talk) 13:10, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

HERE is one. HERE is another. Its called simply a "Tower Room" HERE, which may be the most scholarly of these (as opposed to blog-like). Translating "Sala delle Asse" may not be the same as translating "Asse". Sometimes translating phrases gives a different meaning than single word translations lumped together. Perhaps the aforementioned references could be included in the article to avoid future disputes on this matter. I may be mistaken but I'm sure "Google Translate" can't be used as a reference! Some people give Google Translate the same credibility as Wikipedia.... :-O Leonardo da VinciTalk 14:25, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
I've substituted "translation" for "In English". If you can source a more reliable translation than "Google Translate" please let me know, otherwise I'll keep looking myself when I'm not too busy. Leonardo da VinciTalk 21:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
