Neomodernism[edit]

American "dialog"[edit]

Hi. I changed the spelling of dialog because Platonic writing is always called "The Socratic Dialogue", and so for consistency the rest of article should use that (British) spelling. Batmanand | Talk 09:19, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Essendon Keilor College[edit]

G'day. Just a note telling you that by this diff to Essendon Keilor College you reverted to a prior version that contained libellous material. Please take care to ensure you are reverting pages to a legitimate and not vandalous version by using the "show preview" function before each edit. Thankyou, Jpe|ob 12:30, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

It just demonstrates the need to be absolutely sure that you are reverting to a version that you want. Happy editing! Jpe|ob 01:34, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

copyright permission[edit]

Could you tell me how i can show copyright permission. you deleted some quotes on balagangadhara article. --SV 19:36, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

to add to the previous, the book from which the quote was made is itself in the public domain [1]. So i will go ahead add revert back to the older version of the article. --SV 19:41, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Persian language writers and authors[edit]

per your comment here [2] could you take another look and help improve the article? Weiszman 22:35, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

actually, the reason I wrote to you was because of your comment above [3] You don't need to be an expert in Persian literature to help improve the general outlook and flow of the article, and consider renaming it as per your suggestion. Weiszman 23:22, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Graff, Missouri[edit]

Human settlements are interesting, even small ones. Perhaps more substantial info would be why the place was called that way, who made that decision, all the subsequent local history, and some pictures. But eh...Zigzig20s 00:41, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Wargames Research Group[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

Another editor has added the "{{prod}}" template to the article Wargames Research Group, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the editor doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and has explained why in the article (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia or discuss the relevant issues at its talk page. If you remove the {{prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

  • I don't understand this -- how is being blocked 'directly' any different from being blocked? I am the only person who can use this proxy as I have a userid and password on it. So it is not an open proxy. m.e. (talk) 16:13, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
    • Being block directly means that there would be a record of the block here. If you are blocked from editing, you need the proper template to request an unblock, or else there is nothing we can do. nat.utoronto 17:40, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wargames Research Group and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Proposed deletion of Wang Lao Ji[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Wang Lao Ji, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Ironholds 16:01, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

My apologies. In future may I advise using a sandbox? When I write new articles I create them in my userspace and then transfer them when I feel they are "complete" for now. Ironholds 16:14, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Equivalents of Duke in other European languages[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Equivalents of Duke in other European languages has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A list of translations of a word is outside the scope of Wikipedia (see WP:NOT#DICDEF). The proper place for this content would be in the "duke" article at Wiktionary ([4]). Additionally, verifiability and notability have not been established.

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.

Speedy deletion of Equivalents of Duke in other European languages[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Equivalents of Duke in other European languages has been nominated for speedy deletion because it is an unencyclopedic list of dictionary entries. Content here constitutes translations and transliterations of a word without contextual information, thus it is suitable content for Wiktionary (where it already exists) but not for Wikipedia. Asserted to be non-controversial maintenance. See CSD G6.

The creator of a page may not remove a speedy deletion tag from it. Only an editor who is not the creator of a page may do so. A creator who disagrees with the speedy deletion should instead click on the Click here to contest this speedy deletion button which appears inside of the speedy deletion tag. This button links to the discussion page with a pre-formatted area for the creator to explain why the page should not be deleted.

Andy Carr, a senior librarian at SLNSW will also be helping out.

If you are unable to attend in person, we will also be collaborating online. Details and an attendee list are at Wikipedia:Meetup/Sydney/September 2013. Hope you can make it! John Vandenberg 09:32, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

There is a backstage pass coming up to be followed by an editathon in the State Library of New South Wales on 23 November. This is the first time that an Australian cultural institution has opened its doors to us in this way and will be a special opportunity because the Library is providing: one of its best rooms; its expert curators (along with their expertise and their white gloves); a newly launched website (containing new resources); and of course, items from its collection (including rare and usually unavailable material) which we can look at, learn from, and use, to improve WP articles. For example, on the chosen topic (Australia and WWI), the Library holds many diaries and manuscripts from the period.

As you can see from the Library's project page, they have connected this editathon with their own work. They have already set out a wide range of resources to make things easier for us. Please sign up on the editathon project page if you can participate either online or in person with other Wikipedians. Hope to see you there! Lankiveil (speak to me) 11:09, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
