Invitation to take part in a study
I am a Wikipedian, who is studying the phenomenon on Wikipedia. I need your help to conduct my research on about understanding "Motivation of Wikipedia contributors." I would like to invite you to Main Study. Please give me your valuable time, which estimates about 20 minutes. I chose you as a English Wikipedia user who made edits recently through the RecentChange page. Refer to the first page in the online survey form for more information on the study and me.cooldenny (talk) 01:20, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Care to take a look?
Since it seems you're interested in these sorts of topics, I wanted to know if you wanted to take a look at this new wiki article I wrote up. If you do, tell me what you think of it. Thanks.--Yalens (talk) 19:25, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
- That looks like a good start, but I think it can be expanded significantly. I have full access to a lot of the books and articles written on the history of this region. I'll help you out soon. Machinarium (talk) 20:37, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
Copy and paste moves
Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give a page a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.
In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you. Good luck!

- Sorry about that. I accidently mistyped the title when moving. I'll be more careful in the future. Mash Talk 22:26, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Your opinion (and help?)?
Could you look at this and tell me what you think? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Yalens#Khazars_and_Jews._Sources). On the one hand, I feel like its not that important an issue. On the other hand, I would much rather see Chechen, reliable (in my opinion, not his though, even though one derives from published sources and the other was a public official) sources prevail over largely sourceless opinions... --Yalens (talk) 16:18, 27 August 2011 (UTC)
Template:Criticism of Islam sidebar has been nominated for merging with Template:Criticism of religion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. Thank you.
Rex_Germanus! I know that it is you. I already recognized you a few months ago. You are not allowed to edit Germany-related articles but you put a citation flag to Old High German in the Charlemagne article. You would love to see your Old Low FRanconian also known as Old Dutch wouldn't you? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:38, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
- 1) who are you?
- 2) who or what is Rex Germanus? Machinarium (talk) 16:21, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
- I see, a user who edited before I edited wikipedia, banned for being generally uncivil. I am not him. But I see where you're coming from since he edited Dutch-German related articles. But I began editing totally different topics, whereas he seems to have edited exclusively Dutch related articles. He also seems to have held warped views that I have never agreed with. If you're not convinced you can log into your account and ask for an investigation. I have lived and edited from a single location for years and I can prove that if necessary.

Dispute resolution survey
Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite
Hello Machinarium. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.
Please click HERE to participate.
You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 01:33, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
