JSTOR[edit]

Hi there. You're one of the first 100 people to sign up for a free JSTOR account via the requests page. We're ready to start handing out accounts, if you'd still like one.

JSTOR will provide you access via an email invitation, so to get your account, please email me (swalling@wikimedia.org) with...

  • the subject line "JSTOR"
  • your English Wikipedia username
  • your preferred email address for a JSTOR account

The above information will be given to JSTOR to provide you with your account, but will otherwise remain private. Please do so by November 30th or drop me a message to say you don't want/need an account any longer. If you don't meet that deadline, we will assume you have lost interest, and will provide an account to the next person in the rather long waitlist.

Thank you! Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 21:53, 20 November 2012 (UTC)


User:Writ Keeper's removal[edit]

User:Writ Keeper is removing Talk Page content under copyright issues on Rizana's Letter Deletion Discussion.61.245.165.22 (talk) 17:36, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Rizana Nafeeks' Image[edit]

Since 9 editors including 3 administrators(including Jimbo Wales) agreed that the image qualifies under fair use, I have added back the image to the page Execution of Rizana Nafeek. User:Future Perfect at Sunrise removed it. There is a revived discussion going on currently. Please let others know whether still you believe the Image has a Fair Use value?61.245.172.21 (talk) 15:06, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Personally, I think it is a waste of time discussing about the letter, we have an article about her and that's all it is going to be, a copy of a letter in Tamil language has no additional encylopedic vlaue in an English article. This time can be spent somewhere else of all included. Kanatonian (talk) 15:55, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for February 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kanchipuram, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Burmese (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.

Tamil-Brahmi[edit]

That's an interesting claim. However, you need a reference, and it should be explained in the text. — kwami (talk) 01:21, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
