Native American studies[edit]

I'd like to add the very good European Journal of Native American Studies (Christian Feest editor) to the article-list, but perhaps only if it is known and available in Northamerica.--Radh (talk) 06:48, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 01:18, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Mark Harrison[edit]

Hello,

I am letting you know that an article you have been involved in editing, Mark Harrison (comic artist), has been nominated for deletion as part of a series of AFDs based on the deletion nomination of List of Magic: The Gathering artists. If there is anything you can do to improve the article further, your efforts would be appreciated. 204.153.84.10 (talk) 22:20, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Tiffany Midge[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Tiffany Midge, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.hanksville.org/storytellers/midge.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tiffany Midge[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Tiffany Midge requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. —KuyaBriBriTalk 18:10, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Tiffany Midge[edit]

I've copied my reply that I wrote on the talk page of the article below in case it gets deleted before you see it.

":I'm afraid that this does appear to be a copyright violation and so will need to be deleted. The source given is the tagging is [1] and this would appear to be much older than the wiki (as it shows a copyright of 1997) and in the absence of any information to the contrary I'd have to assume the above wiki is a copyright violation of that page. However even if the article has been released under the "GNU Free Documentation License 1.2" as the wiki page states we still could no accept it as that is no longer a compatible licence for wikipedia - see WP:CFAQ. Also you should note that it is against policy for a page creator to remove a speedy tag - they should add a hangon tag instead."

Dpmuk (talk) 18:39, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

I am afraid I agree with Dpmuk, but it looks like there is a good chance we should have an article. The basic list part should be too simple to be copyrighted, and I would be happy to restore that to your userspace for you to work on, if you would like. Good luck, - 2/0 (cont.) 19:08, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Tiffany Midge[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Tiffany Midge has been proposed for deletion because under Wikipedia policy, all biographies of living persons created after March 18, 2010, must have at least one source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

This article about a living person contains no sources not affiliated with the subject, a requirement for notability. To avert deletion and remove this tag, at least one such source must be provided.

If you created the article, please don't take offense. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners or ask at Wikipedia:Help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Sebwite (talk) 15:51, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Tiffany Midge (copy)[edit]

Hi -

I included reference to Norma Wilson's discussion of Midge in her book. This is an independent source. I have now included reference from the Cambridge Companion to Native American Literature. Please let me know if this does not meet the criteria. Vizjim (talk) 06:02, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

For now, I think it is good enough to be de-prodded. But it still needs some improvement. The more sources, the better. I found that there are 247 items listed when entering her name into Google Books. I would recommend doing your own work do place as many relevant sources there as possible to prevent the article from being challenged. I also recommend adding the article to one or more categories where it may belong.
I am not a deletionist, and I do not plan to propose it for deletion. I only came across this article when doing New Page Patrol, which I do occasionally. Being the creator, I recommend you try to improve the article as best as you can. Sebwite (talk) 22:00, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

New wikiproject?[edit]

Hi, I'm researching the possibilities of creating a new WikiProject:Indigenous peoples of the Americas because articles about indigenous peoples in the Caribbean, Central, and South America, especially contemporary peoples, are woefully neglected and cross-regional exchanges tend to be ignored. Would you have any interest in such a project if it were created? Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 22:36, 6 February 2011 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. In Kim Shuck, you recently added links to the disambiguation pages Polish and Native American (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.

List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas[edit]

Looks like you've been taking a WikiBreak, but would you care to comment on a possible rewrite on the criteria for inclusion in List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas and share your thoughts on some authors with questionable notability that I've moved over to Talk:List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas. Thanks so much! Cheers, -Uyvsdi (talk) 20:17, 7 July 2012 (UTC)Uyvsdi

Speedy deletion nomination of Juulchin Tourism Corporation of Mongolia[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Juulchin Tourism Corporation of Mongolia, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:02, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

William S. Yellow Robe: Thank you!![edit]

Dear Vizjim, I really really really appreciate the push to create the Bill Yellow Robe page. I *think* I have done it now, and will be thrilled to have you do any editing you see fit. I'll also surely try to work on the other articles you recommended. In fact, I have my class this spring (mostly college seniors/juniors) working on Wikipedia articles about Native American authors, though our focus is specifically New England writers. So I'm very gratified to find other Wikipedians looking out for us new contributors, and for this topic!Ssenier (talk) 19:27, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Vizjim, I am one of Ssenier's students working on the Native American authors articles. My page has been awaiting review for about 2 weeks, and I was notified this morning that my page was denied. I investigated the situation, only to find that the editor who denied it appears to be a new Wikipedia user without any edit history. While the lack of many sources for my article is an issue I recognize, I'm wondering what I can do about this denial, and/or about this editor who seems to lack the credentials to deny my article. Thank you. Ame283 (talk) 15:14, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Good afternoon Ame, I hope you do not mind me following you here. My credentials arise mainly from my career as a military leader in the 19th century, but in these difficult modern times I specialise in retail therapy. I believe the link to my edit history is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Arthur_goes_shopping - I trust that this is helpful.

Your request for undeletion[edit]

Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that a response has been made at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion regarding a submission you made. The thread is KISA (NGO). JohnCD (talk) 10:27, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

ENG203N[edit]

Hello,

Not sure if this is how to send someone a message on Wikipedia but here's to my first attempt.

Hope you like our page up until this point.

User:ENG203N (Chris)

The suggestion is great, I find it interesting, but would you mind explaining how I could 'watch' this project in its entirety? Or do I have to 'watch' individual pages that I would like to contribute to? ENG203N (talk) 14:40, 19 March 2014 (UTC)


Bibliography[edit]

Woops. Okay I'll make sure I change that around then. Still trying to add any information that may be vital for this page's survival in the wiki world! I did want to ask though, can a foreword be used as a reference? I mean, it's a very brief biography of the author but I have the impression that it's not considered a great source. Compared to others at least. Thank you very much though for the suggestion. I e-mailed your university e-mail to ask for a title for the assignment. I do realise how silly that was because you were abroad, but Annetta also told me that we do not have to do it after all. Is that true?
