NHS categories[edit]

I don't think that we can put all NHS trusts in England into subcategories any more. Too many don't fit, and are not stable configurations. For example many teaching hospitals and DGHs also run community services. So do many Mental health trusts. But generally the community services are subject to a periodic tendering programme.

The only really clearly defined categories are foundation trusts and non-foundation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rathfelder (talkcontribs) 10:53, 24 November 2013

Patan, Udaipur[edit]

Hey I saw your edit of Patan, Udaipur I'm having some trouble with this article. The creator is set on including every person who lives in the village to the page. I cannot have it deleted because its a village but I am also on my second revert so my hands are tied. What do you recomend? --Youngdrake (talk) 17:06, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Youngdrake: I know how you feel, Boraj Tanwaran (talk · contribs) has recreated the page Boraj Tanwaran(BT) and then added a lot of genealogical information to it. AGF but I suspect this is sourced to a page the editor wrote themself. They have stopped removing the speedy tags, but keep asking if they can remove them. I have advised them that they arent allowed to.
I'm not sure about "can't have it deleted", as the 'BT' village page they created was taken to AfD here and deleted because its existence was not reliably sourced. Even the Hindi version of the page was nominated for deletion.
3RR doesnt apply to vandalism, though that's debateable here, or IIRC to unsourced content. 220 of Borg 09:24, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
The BT page has 'just' been deleted. :-\ 220 of Borg 09:45, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot I had given up hope! Sorry if I was inncorect about the policy I'm still quite new. --Youngdrake (talk) 11:47, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Don't take anything I say as 'gospel' I haven't read a lot of WP policy in detail, just 'picked it up' as I went along. :-o At least the editor here isn't malicious. (Just not listening.) See here for an account hopping 'spammer' that created a pile of pages about themself today under BS page names. Don't be surprised if the 'BT' page is re-created. --220 of Borg 12:48, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Said so! Boraj Tawaran, slight spelling change, created @ 16:30! --220 of Borg 16:54, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I'd just like to say, I've had a look through your userboxes, and I really appreciate that you've given blood 77 times. Quite a lot, I personally really like that there are people willing enough to help people they may never meet, whether that's giving blood or something else...

Basically, thank you, I think it's amazing.

Thanks for notifying.[1] I had lost touch with these pages due to huge rise of new pages on my watchlist. But never too late, I've opposed that proposal. Seemed pretty childish too.

I want to tag more articles for years wikiproject, but list is too high, have a view.[2] OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 10:22, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Manchester Village Spartans RUFC[edit]

Thanks for your help/corrections for the new page for the Village Spartans.

Can bother you to check the new content to make sure it's all ok? I've tried to uploadthe club logo but it wont let me - any chance you could help me out here? a Thumbnail of is or the larger one is at


@Btvs4232: (Don't forget to sign any talk post pages by typing ~~~~) - I've uploaded the logo (you have to copy it to your own computer and then upload it using the "Upload file" link on the left of the page), and tweaked the page quite a bit. I've used the standard template at {{Infobox rugby team}}, copying the usage from Bristol Bisons. There's scope to include diagrams of the kit, but I don't know how your rainbow striped arms would work out. I'm sure if you can't figure out how to do it you could find someone at Wikipedia:WikiProject Rugby union who could help. Good luck. PamD 18:14, 22 July 2014 (UTC)


The section "Reception and Controversy" on is a stub though (talk) 07:52, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

@ But that's no reason to label the whole article as a stub. Add {{empty section}} (as I've done) or {{expand section}}. There's a lot to learn about editing Wikipedia but it's an interesting journey. Happy editing! PamD 09:23, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Many Thanks[edit]

Thank you for your patient notes. As you can tell, I am beginning to enter the world of reviewing new articles. Your instruction and intention is well-received. I will re-read the guidelines for reviewing new articles and stick with the backlog of older articles that already have been tagged. Thank you again.

Semi-protected edit request on 30 July 2014[edit]

Since it was discovered,gold has evoked many emotions, the foremost of which is greed. When this precious metal was discovered in South Africa it was no different, and countless men have risked all trying to get their hands on it...legally or otherwise. The need to protect the gold on it's journey from deep within the bowels of the earth to bank vaults and jewellers' workshops was, and is, is paramount importance. Mark Corby was one of the men employed in the endeavour and his book takes you behind the scenes to meet the colourful characters who spent their days guarding it, the men from a myriad of tribes and cultures who mined it, the people who tried to steal it, and the people who controlled all. Mark's stories form an integral part of the South African mining industry, culture and history. Note to Editor: This is the back cover of the book I have authored - the 'bot' found it on scrib and I really don't understand why I cannot post the article??? Markcorby (talk) 11:05, 30 July 2014 (UTC)


I make apologies in advance as I am really not sure how this all works! I have submitted text but apparently it needs permissions or something. I am the author and copyright holder of the text.

Could you please kindly explain what I have done wrong or not yet done.

Many thanks.Markcorby (talk) 11:11, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Mark, and Welcome to Wikipedia. (I've taken the liberty of moving your signature to the end of your words, as it had got into the midst of the last couple of lines)
There are various problems here:
  1. For some reason you were trying to edit my personal User Page. It's "semi-protected" so that it can't be edited by anonymous or very new editors - in fact there's no reason for anyone but me ever to edit it. I don't know why you were trying to edit it, but it was the wrong place for you to be editing. The semiprotection, set up against vandalism, has prevented an accidental edit.
  2. You shouldn't be creating an article about your own book. Please read WP:COI. If your book is reviewed in "Reliable sources" (Newspapers etc, not just blogs), wins a recognised award, or otherwise becomes "notable" (see WP:Notability (books)), then you should start an article as a WP:DRAFT and ask someone else to review it before it becomes an official article. Or wait for someone else to create the article because they know about the book and think it worthy of an article (though if they can't show evidence of "Notability" it will probably be deleted). Not every book which has been published is appropriate to have a Wikipedia article.
Ah, going to your talk page to notify you of this reply I see that you've already created a draft article with this text. I've still no idea how you came to be trying to add it to my personal user page! PamD 12:46, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
