Lincoln[edit]

Several different editiors have removed the "Ethopian ancestry" section from the article. I think the onous must now be on those seeking to add the content to make a case for it on the article's talkpage. WjBscribe 01:00, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

August 2007[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. We invite everyone to contribute constructively to our encyclopedia.

The OLF page has been recently improved and the problem solved. Jack248

Kenya article[edit]

Hi Jack. I noticed that you added the following to the Kenya Article: "Cushitic-speaking people, as termed by Schloezer, from northern Africa, moved into the area that is now Kenya beginning around 2000 BC. Arab traders began frequenting the Kenya coast around the 1st century AD." I'm a bit confused by what you added. Who is Schloezer. Also can you add a reference to this. Thanks so much. --PatrickFlaherty (talk) 19:25, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

October 2008[edit]

Information.png Welcome to Wikipedia. The recent edit you made to Ethiopia has been reverted, as it appears to have removed content from the page without explanation. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thank you.   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 17:03, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi, Welcome to Wikipedia. Thanks for dropping by with your concern. The Edit i made about Ethiopia was simply replacing with the appropriate source. I have also provided an Edit explanation in the Edit summary. Regarding the sources, if you go back a few weeks into the page, a couple of random sources that don't have any relation to the sentence that ends with the phrase "culminating in its victory over the Italians at the Battle of Adwa in 1896 with the military leadership of Ras Makonnen, and ensuring its sovereignty and freedom from colonization" were randomly added. I removed those unrelated sources after carefully checking them and reading their topics and replaced them with a textbook previously quoted appropriately. This source has been correctly used before for the phrase above and related topics so it is important that the sentences always match and reflect the sources given. I will put back the source but if you have any questions or concerns let me know in this talk page ahead of time. thanks Jack248 17:18, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

RE:Arab and Ottoman support[edit]

You're right to state their importance in the latter half of the war, but the section you wrote was on the war itself. If you discussed perhaps the Imam's specific dealings with the Turks and Arabs (not just that he had Turk and Arab musketeers and cannoneers), then it would have been more appropriate, though. Try rewriting it with more specific information if you have it. Otherwise, add it to the Ethiopian-Adal War article, which is in need of a lot of work. — ዮም | (Yom) | TalkcontribsEthiopia 05:56, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Somalia[edit]

If you dispute the content of the article please take your concerns to the talkpage and we can discuss it over there. --Scoobycentric (talk) 23:12, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

July 2009[edit]

Hello, I've reverted Meles Zenawi back to the previous version. I don't see how your edit summary ("edits seems accurate, though lacks sources" [2]) justified the restoration of the text. Thanks, -- Gyrofrog (talk) 13:14, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Refugee article original research[edit]

Hi. I reverted your edits to the refugee article because they constitute original research. You need to provide sources to back up your claims that asylum seekers move for economic reasons. Citing some sources that claim that individual asylum seekers have done so is not enough - the sources need to establish that this is a notable phenomenon. Even if it is, I'm not sure that the information belongs in the refugee article since refugees by definition meet the criteria for asylum. Cordless Larry (talk) 21:51, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

June 2010[edit]

black lions (gang)[edit]

Hello. It looks like you meant to include a reference on black lions (gang), but you ended up just including a tag for a reference without specifying what. You might want to have another look at that. Thanks, Morwen - Talk 13:22, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Oromo Liberation Front may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

OLF page[edit]

Hello mate, you added a section called '"Abyssinian Colonialism" terminology dispute' to the Oromo Liberation Front page. I've added that info under the "Colonial Claims" subsection under Criticism of the OLF. If you think it deserves it's own section, feel free to undo my revision but I would suggest you leave it because it looked out of place between the History section and the Alleged Terrorism section. I would also like to point out that one of the articles you used as a reference (Oromo History 101) has been disputed as being incorrect and there have been suspicions as to who its alleged author was.
