List of massacres in Turkey[edit]

Hello, I am writing this to you in order to inform you that some Turkish-related articles have for quite some time been hijacked by a group of editors whose only goal, it seems, is to negatively portray the Republic of Turkey, its predesseccors and its people as warmongerming murderers. This has especially become a problem in the article of List of massacres in Turkey where they only allow information about Turks killing others, and delete all reliabely sourced information about massacres against Turks/Muslims. By doing WP:OR, discrediting sources and authors, source falsification, distortion and tag bombing.

Sources which state the number of Muslims casualties during the Greco-Turkish war is persistently being deleted.

Your help is needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:23, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Trailing zero[edit]

Hi Lambiam,

I'm contacting you with regards to an edit you made to the Trailing zero article in 2008 (see here) which left a broken syntax equation that has not been fixed yet. I'd fix it myself but I'm not sure what you were aiming at and before simply removing the content I thought I'd ask you to see if you'd be willing to fix it yourself. Thanks a lot. Regards. Gaba (talk) 17:19, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

An AfD you may be interested in...[edit]

Hello Lambiam,

I noticed that you had concerns for the Lifestyle of the Ottoman Empire article way back in 2007. I want to say that I was in the same boat as you. I nominated it for deletion here. Just to let you know. Thanks, Étienne Dolet (talk) 04:30, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Conway criterion[edit]

Hi Lambiam - Thank you for fixing my blunder in Conway criterion. What was I thinking? One of the existing references sufficed to supply the needed citation but I am researching more examples to cite.--Foobarnix (talk) 16:54, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

The article Eric Burns (communications professional) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Sources include brief mentions, quotes, blogs, broken links; nothing remotely close to verifying that he qualifies for a Wikipedia page.

While all constructive 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.
