I put the references I found, in Brazilian editions, as it is in Brazil and it really was a great rider and keep running until today at 56 years of age, I believe deserve to be on wikipedia because in addition to pilot this person benemerita and too activist in favor of animals.

Dear Sir, I apologize but meant that the profile of Marcelo Monte, is real and not harmful, I don't question your profile completely, put in the footer of the page the little references I could find, because in Brazil very little writes about Motorsport, because a few readers, book d Pilots a Stock Car Brazil is one of the few references, I met Mr Marcelo Monte in Jerez Spain, when the same tracks as coach a young driver from Brazil, admired your person, your story and found good score his biography, to knowledge of future generations, but if you find that the mélhor is delete, I accept the fact and only sorry, cordially — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mathias karl estress (talk • contribs) 17:52, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

I have completed my review of Boyle Roche and passed it as a Good Article. Congratulations! This is a fine piece of work, and it's been a pleasure working with you to fix the last 1% or so to bring it to this status. Choess 01:36, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
Hello, when you want to link to the article about something British, please do not link to British, as that is a disambiguation page (which nothing should be linked to). Instead link to the one of the options found on that page such as United Kingdom or Great Britain by writing out [[United Kingdom|British]] or [[Great Britain|British]].

Maps and assessment
Sure, I can do some maps for 104B and 481 (that is, once the Maps task force settles on a proposal). Once the proposal's set, those maps'll be my first priority. (BTW, if you'd like to take a look at and/or comment on the proposals, check this page out. Any and all input is welcome.)
As for NY 104B, I juggled for a minute or so on whether to make 104B start-class or B-class. I think what caused me to rate it start-class was the short route description. I see your point completely - it's a very short road in the relative middle of nowhere, so writing about the road would be difficult. Still, if a couple more lines of description were added to the route description (maybe the names/numbers of the county roads it passes, general progression direction (north-south, etc), for example), I'd probably be inclined to upgrade the article to B-class.

According to the FTC John Mackey is a trust-creating robber barron http://www.wholefoods.com/blogs/jm/archives/2007/06/
- Well I do think we need to include modern RBs in the list, although this term was frequently used in the 1800s, it is important to note RBs can certainly exist in any time. In fact, I would argue that The term may now be used in relation to any businessman or banker pursuing various allegedly anti-competitive or unfair business practices. But you are certainly right that we shouldn't only include one modern person in the list.
As to the libal issue, including Mackey (or anyone else) would carry no more legal liablity than if I created a list of assholes and threw a bunch of names on it, as these are often subjective terms rather than objective and false facts. Mackey is pursuing various anti-competitive & unfair business practices according to the FTC. (of course so are many others, and I have no objection to including mulitiple modern day RBs). XM 16:22, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
- Haven't heard back from you. Added J. Mackey back to the list. If you come up with some more modern day robber barons, please feel free to add them so JM isn't the only one on the list. XM 18:24, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

OK. I tries again. Thank you for your patience, and little tutorial, it is appreciated. I used new quotes from songs this time, as they actually mention BC or a place name of BC in them so it seems to better comply. I couldn't find a template to use that had notes very well, so just indented it in. I could only find the place name of New York City, which I combined with your notes. There were not too, too many places on wikiquote as theme pages. I found that interesting. I will have to see what the other Canadian portals link to on wikiquote.

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, just let me know and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 17:44, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
You reverted a fix to Esterel Studio, such that the article now links 'IP' in the phrase 'hardware IPs' to IP Address. "Hardware Internet Protocol Address" is a non-sequitur, whereas "hardware Intellectual Property Core" is a commonly used phrase, as described in the article Semiconductor intellectual property core. I didn't want to reedit an article after you reverted my edit, so I came here to request that you fix the link to point to the correct meaning of hardware IP. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:10, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

Hey there, just wanted to let you know that I removed a warning template on User talk:22.214.171.124.

- Put a /citation needed/ tag on unsourced informations is not a vandalism. The real vandalism is putting false sources in order to remove the citation needed tag, as done by Special:Contributions/126.96.36.199 who, as you can see, removed a sourced information saying it was "wrong". I think this IP is a sockpuppet of Special:Contributions/Hap791, a monothematic user. I think also this user spreaded all around the web the false information about the "philanthropy" of ms. Ferreyr.

I erased a section of the article that mentions Croatia in the antemurale christianitatis myth article. I noticed the automated message, and decided to contact you. There is no antemurale "myth" in Croatian culture. Pope Leo X branded Croatians and Croatia as bulwark of christianity, so it is not something "invented" by Croats later during history. The other nations mentioned in the article are correctly portrayed, especially Serbians and Albanians. After the Kosovo battle in 1389. Serbian kingdom vanished, only to reappear in 1878. after the Berlin congress when it was officially recognized as independent. (they did have two uprisings in the beginning of 19th century, but they were officially recognized only after the Berlin congress in 1878. ) There was no Serbian kingdom or land during that period, everything else is just a Serbian nationalist myth! So the antemurale myth, is obviously present in Serbian culture, but not in Croatian. Serbians also falsely claim that they settled entire Croatian military frontier, and than defended Europe from Turks. However, this extract from a Wikipedia article shows that Military Frontier was dominantly Croat inhabited, but also inhabited by other ethnic groups because Croatian demography started to decline.
According to the official Austrian census from 1850-1851, the population of the Military Frontier numbered 958,877 inhabitants.
Population by ethnicity:
Croats = 480,494 (50.1%) Serbs = 310,964 (32.4%) Romanians = 113,723 (11.9%) Germans = 37,875 (3.9%) Slovaks and Czechs = 8,822 (0.9%) Hungarians = 4,985 (0.5%)
Lastly, there is a heated historical debate regarding "Serbians" in the Croatian Military Frontier. Historians believe that there was between 25000 and 36000 thousand Serbs who fled into the Croatian Military Frontier, and they were led by patriarch Arsenije Čarnojević. When he settled he saw that a part of Croatian Military Frontier population was orthodox, but not Serbian! They were Vlachs. Vlachs originate from today's Romania, it was called Wallachia by the German officials of that period. Germans asked these Vlachs to settle in the Croatian Military Frontier (because of the fall in Croatian HDI during that period), and in return, Vlachs asked for certain rights. Germans awarded them with Statuta Valachorum. As you know Serbians have an autonomous Church called Serbian Orthodox Church. So Čarnojević started a proces of Serbianisation (there is a Wikipedia article about this strange phenomenon) of these Vlachs which lasted roughly between 150 and 200 years. After some period they were Serbianized and they started to furiously deny their Vlach origin (they were possibly ashamed of it?) and they started to create more and more problems for Croats, as they were constantly used as a tool of a Greater Serbian aspirations towards Croatian territory. This culminated in 1991. when they created a puppet state within Republic of Croatia called "Republic of Serbian Krajina". Lastly, their "lordship" in Republic of Croatia was put to an end by a swift military operation called Operation Storm 95.
There is also a historical source called "Ethnographic map of austrian monarchy by Czoernig from 1855." In this source it is visible that there was more Croats (625028) in the Croatian Military Frontier than there were "Serbians" (222062).
I registered with a normal account as I want to contribute more to the article. Since I showed in my last post and substantiated with a couple of references that there is no myth about Croatia as bulwark of Criatianity is it OK if I now erase the section about Croatian antemurale myth, or should I add those sources that state otherwise and leave the article as it is?
What's up with your latest revert at Waiting for the Rain? The page has been very heavily vandalized, and I tried to get rid of it by restoring an old, cleaner version. Why did you undo that? Sideways713 (talk) 14:24, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Dear Ubiquity, Cossacks were the military estate of the Russian empire. They belonged to different civil estates as well. (This is why Kornilov mentioned both his father's Cossack ethnicity and military estate and his father's peasant civil estate in his appeals). The civil estate called Cossacks as well united the part of the former Ukrainian (Malorussian) Cossacks, which were much less numerous. All surnames of Ukrainian Cossacks of Jewish origin, mentioned in the article, were surnames of Cossacks, promoted to nobility and not to the civil estate of Cossacks after the disbandment of Cossack regiments. There is now human trafficking in Russia, where adolescents are explained that Russian Cossacks contrary to Ukrainian ones have never been Orthodox Catholics. Traffickers distribute wild rumors, that Russian Cossacks have always been Orthodox pagan LGBTs ("circular asses") having nothing common with heterosexual people, especially Jews, to recruit children into their pagan "circular asses". But Mikhail Sholohov chose a Jewish actress to play his Aksinya character in the "Quiet Don" movie, because her anthropological type was suitable only. Most probably, there were less atamans and colonels of Jewish origin on Don just because the much bigger faction of Don Cossacks considered themselves of Jewish origin and prayers to the Holy Mother were efficacious, in their opinion, even without atamans of Jewish origin . When empress Elizabeth had ordered not to send Don Cossacks of Jewish origin to Europe, the Don Cossack Host archive was fired.

Accident different page :)
Sorry that was an accident wrong button push :) I was trying to edit the Historical Jesus section and pressed wrong button. I was confused by the weight that the article attributed to testimonies of Tacitus and Josephus about Jesus as a historical figure, while dismissing any other point of view.
Records referencing Jesus by Josephus have been universally acknowledged as a editorial forgery by Eusebius. (reference Nathaniel Lardner, Adolf von Harnack, Charles Guignebert, Dr. Gordon Stein). The testimony of Tacitus has been also put into question because of it's historicity: the term Christiani was not yet invented at the time of Tacitus (evident from writings of Seneca), no contemporary christian theologian like Tertullian (a Tacitus scholar) or Clement of Alexandria ever mentions this passage. The article also mentions nothing of the fact that there is no evidence of village under the name Nazareth existing in the time attributed by New Testament to Jesus.
The whole article needs an overhaul as it presents the issue of historical Jesus in a bias of christian apologist point of view. It favors sweeping theological dismissals over historical objectiveness. An example of such bias is using Robert Van Voorst, a christian theologian and pastor, for a final judgement on validity of evidence. His conflict of interests in evaluating the matter is painfully obvious and can hardly be considered as valid. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:49, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Moving Toyshop, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Strangers on a Train (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.
user edit warring on Goodluck Jonathan page
Hi there, I am not well versed in handling edit wars, but there is a user user talk:FRANKBISTORY that is continuing to undo constructive edits to the Goodluck Jonathan page, and since I saw your name in the history of edits there, I was hoping you could help. I apologize if this isn't the correct protocol, but I don't really know what the right protocol is! Thanks. Rockypedia (talk) 01:02, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

I fixed punctuation on the Planet V article, and you broke it again.
The second paragraph of the Planet V article contains this sentence fragment, which due to an erroneous period renders an incomplete sentence:
"While long-lived this orbit was unstable on a time-scale of 600 Myr. Eventually perturbations from the other inner planets drove Planet V onto a high-eccentricity orbit which crossed into the inner asteroid belt."
I corrected this grammatical error, and received a message that I had made "unhelpful edits" which were reverted. If I'm not allowed to fix this obvious mistake, then perhaps you'd like to do so, or at least explain why fixing a blatant grammar error was "unhelpful." 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:48, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

I noticed you restored well-sourced material that was blanked from Robert Garcia (California politician). There is currently a discussion on the article's talk page and the BLP noticeboard about, essentially, the ongoing blanking of the same material. If you have the time or interest, please take a look.

Hello, I'm 18.104.22.168. I noticed that you made an edit concerning content related to a living person, but that you didn’t support your changes with a citation to a reliable source, so I removed it. Wikipedia has a strict policy concerning how we write about living people, so please help us keep such articles accurate. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.
Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:16, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Please stop adding unreferenced or poorly referenced biographical content, especially if controversial, to articles or any other Wikipedia page.

Yes, now that I see what you're doing, it's fine -- except that in at least one edit (the first one I looked at) you removed material carelessly so that the next paragraph started in the middle of a sentence, and that looked like vandalism to me. I agree that an edit summary would have been helpful. I certainly wouldn't have even looked at something marked "removing unsourced material from articles on living people." ubiquity (talk) 18:36, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
- Right. I corrected that minor error. Ubiquity, you're doing good work here, but please check (or keep on checking) content. Thanks, 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:39, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Reference Errors on 28 July
Hello, I'm ReferenceBot. I have automatically detected that an edit performed by you may have introduced errors in referencing. It is as follows:
Hi, I was wondering - how is even defined what articles can be in an encyclopedia? I found the article on Japanese Wikipedia and it seemed like something big enough to have its own page on the English Wikipedia, too. Is there a project page that has when pages are not important enough to be an article of their own?
- That is a very good question. I looked at WP:GEOFEAT, where it says "Buildings ... can be notable as a result of their historic, social, economic, or architectural importance. They require significant coverage by reliable, third-party sources to establish notability." Your article had no references at all. Can you find some English sources that mention the temple? Then you can establish notability. The mere fact that the building was covered in Japanese WP does not make it notable for English WP. If you can only find Japanese references, perhaps the temple is only notable in Japan. ubiquity (talk) 18:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Rim Fire Recovery Project
Hello! You curated the article Rim Fire Recovery Project and noted many problems with it. In addition to those problems, I believe the subject may not be separately notable from the existing article Rim Fire. The author of this article added a section about the Recovery Project to Rim Fire, and I have copyedited that section and cited references. I have now proposed that Rim Fire Recovery Project be merged/redirected to Rim Fire. I'd appreciate your opinion on the proposal. Thanks. --MelanieN (talk) 22:16, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
I understand that you deleted Language Beta in good interests but the language was a development of my own and was on the move of posting the whole language, infobox and other details. Please rectify the mistake or at least reply. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tarun Sepuri (talk • contribs) 12:37, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
- I did not delete it. I am not a mod and couldn't delete it if I wanted to. I did suggest that it qualified for speedy deletion, because as it stood it didn't provide enough context to make sense, and moderator Amatulic apparently agreed with me. If you wish to resubmit it, I suggest you work on it as a draft for a while, or in your personal space, until you at least get enough material and sources to illustrate what the language is for and why it is notable. Since this is your own language, I also suggest you take a look at Wikipedia:Conflict of interest and Wikipedia:Notability. If you simply write up a description of the language, with no external sources to indicate notability, I can promise you it will be deleted again — not through any action of mine but because this is the way Wikipedia works. ubiquity (talk) 13:45, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
- @Tarun Sepuri: Articles that don't provide context or sense for the reader do not belong in main article space. We encourage you to work on draft articles in your own user space or create it in Draft space. Better still, because you clearly have a conflict of interest (you have an association with the subject) you should submit your article using the Wikipedia:Articles for creation process.
- Please see also Wikipedia:Golden rule for a general overview of what we expect to see in any article before it can be accepted.
- You also seem to be under the misconception that Wikipedia is a hosting service for publishing anything you believe has value. It most certainly is not, and we have a strict policy on that, primarily WP:NOT#OR as well as Wikipedia:No original research. That is, Wikipedia is not a publisher of original thought or original work. If it hasn't received significant coverage in multiple independent reliable sources, Wikipedia can't have an article on it. ~Amatulić (talk) 16:21, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

National Archives of Burkina Faso
I am setting up some basic articles for the various archives WP does not presently cover (in parallel with the Archives wikia wiki) - and there is more information than for the Arquivo Histórico Nacional (Angola).
- I am not sure the one in Angola deserves an article either. Basically, both articles simply state that Burkina Faso and Angola have archives. Can you tell us anything about the archives? How big are they, when were they built, how many people work there? Why do YOU think they're important enough to need articles? ubiquity (talk) 18:14, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
- An appeal to the collective wisdom of Wikipedia :)
The gaps (including the red links) in the coverage of archives are there - so even 'something basic' is better than nothing.
- Why should anything be done with them? What makes them notable? Why do you want to write about them. When I look at these articles (including the one on Austria), all they say is "This country has an archive." Every country has an archive. I don't see how that's interesting. Can you tell us something about the archives besides the fact that they exist? ubiquity (talk) 15:10, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
- WP has coverage of archives by continent and (continent topic:title) setups - I am trying to fill the gaps: and too many of the archives articles generally are little more than one sentence long.
The Austrian Archives page needs a 'add material translated from the corresponding German Wikipedia page (Österreichisches Staatsarchiv)' request.
- I have no suggestions, as it's not an interesting subject for me. You are the one who wants to write about it. But try some of the suggestions on the Help Page under the heading "I'm Stuck". Also, I started deletion discussions for the pages on the archives of Burkina Faso, Andorra and Austria. Participate in the discussions, perhaps someone there will have ideas as to how you can fix the articles. Or perhaps you can win people over to your point of view, and the pages will survive. Or perhaps we will find that I'm simply wrong, and the pages are OK as they are. ubiquity (talk) 16:20, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
- Ubiquity, I was coming here to ask that you take a (second) look at WP:BEFORE. Inclusion in the encyclopedia is based on notability, not on the state of development of the article. Particularly in the case of National Archives of Austria, you could easily have verified the notability of the topic - even if you disagree that national archives are inherently notable as major government agencies, which is Jackiespeel's position - by looking up the corresponding article on de.wikipedia and noting not just its length and the fact it already had 2 interwikis, but the number of references. Your arguments for deletion are all about the state of the article, which is not actually a valid reason for deletion. In addition, you AfD'd these articles shortly after their creation, without prior notice to the creator (or any attempt to improve them yourself). Editors work in different ways; please consider giving new articles a day or two to be improved, with a note to the article creator if there are several, or fixing obvious things yourself rather than going straight to AfD, which requires a comparatively large expenditure of editor attention - and would be daunting for a new editor. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:15, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
- I read the discussions in the deletion arguments, and I understand. Thanks. ubiquity (talk) 17:35, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of evilswarm exciton knight
Hello, I saw the message as to why you decided to delete the new page I created. I get that the page doesn't have much of description, but that's due to the fact that I'm new with making pages for wikipedia. The page I created is linked to the trading card game Yugioh, and the reason I made it is because it is intended for other people who want to learn more about to either put in their decks or to know how to get aroud the card when it is played against them. If you have other questions, by all means ask them — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maskedbrawler (talk • contribs) 17:46, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
- (talk page stalker) @MaskedBrawler: please see the comment I made at your talk page regarding the relevance of such content. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:14, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Maskedbrawler, I did not delete your article (it's still there). I couldn't even if I wanted to as I am not a moderator. I did recommend that it could be speedily deleted (a form of deletion for articles which clearly do not meet wikipedia requirements), because, reading it as is, I had no idea what it was about. I understand from looking at other similar pages that it's also a copyright violation. You can, if you want, address these issues by writing a lead sentence on the order of "Evilswarm exciton knight is a card in <game it comes from> that does <whatever it does>." Then clean up the article to use sentences to explain the stuff you want to explain. However, I agree with WikiDan61 that Wikipedia is not a game wiki, and that, therefore, even if you clean up the article to answer my issue, it will probably get deleted eventually anyway. See What Wikipedia is not, especially Wikipedia is not a game guide. ubiquity (talk) 18:29, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Martha Crenshaw Page
Hi thank you for the message in my talk page, regarding the Martha Crenshaw page, it is still in progress. Martha Crenshaw was at St. Andrews in a counter terrorism conference, and I have asked her to view the page to check the article, the one posted was from the Stanford, the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), and Martha's own curriculam vitae; everything can be verified. The picture was taken by me at the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence. Thanks again for the message, please note the article is still in progress and Martha Crenshaw is one of pioneers in Terrorism Studies. Best wishes, --Cyril Thomas 20:19, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
- The most important thing is to get some independent references that confirm what you've written. Perhaps it may seem odd to you, but having Ms Crenshaw review the page is not nearly as important as having independent, verifiable sources that other people can check. Unfortunately, anyone can claim they are Ms Crenshaw, or that she has personally verified the page. If you have decent secondary sources, no one will have to worry about your article's veracity. I recommend you read the article Wikipedia:Verifiability. Good luck! ubiquity (talk) 20:41, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
- Hi thanks again, Martha Crenshaw is not reviewing she is only correcting any mistakes (like the dates and "chronographical" errors) in my original article (which was not published yet). The references I have added were from decent secondary sources as I have pointed out, from FSI (Stanford) and National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). Hope that clear the issues. Thanks again, --Cyril Thomas 20:51, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Getting confused here. WP:A7 is for something that "does not indicate why its subject is important or significant" and A7 clarifies that this is "distinct from verifiability and reliability of sources, and is a lower standard than notability". But you're concerned about verifiability rather than significance, and I've shown that it meets notability per WP:NBAND.
If you're worried it doesn't meet WP:GNG for lack of references, shouldn't that be a prod or AFD rather than a speedy? (I'm assuming "band contains two notable musicians" is enough to hop the very lowest bar of "indicate why subject is significant".) --McGeddon (talk) 19:35, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
- No problem. Even then, though, you reverted the A7 template back with the edit summary "You must show at least one reputable reference to assert significance" - but this isn't the case. I forget this myself sometimes, but even a spurious, unsourced claim of importance is enough to keep a speedy at bay. They actually have this clarified at the top of WP:NMUSIC, so I guess it comes up a lot! --McGeddon (talk) 19:49, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Patience, my dear Ubiquity. You will notice one of the few things I did put in the article, from the outset, is an interwiki link to the :de: article, which has an abundance of sources.
