Edmund Wragge[edit]

Hi Rumping! Thanks for the comment re "essay" . I am the original author on this. Any idea how to fix the "multiple issues" condition? (Rodclarkeca (talk) 16:39, 22 June 2010 (UTC))


I have reinstated the redirect from List A cricket to Limited overs cricket. The reasons are given in the edit notice. It seems you think the number of links to the stub justify keeping it but this is not the case. The fact is that it was a stub that was not being expanded and it was superfluous to the main article, which encapsulates all its content.

We do not keep articles for the sake of it. If anyone searches for ListA they will immediately find all they need at Limited overs. --BlackJack | talk page 08:35, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

I think this redirect was wrong, since there were substantial incoming links and the content was not in the target of the redirect. I also think that you were wrong to repeat the redirect a second time when you knew you didn't have consensus. At the very least you should have merged the content. --Rumping 17:04, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

RE: 'Conributions'[edit]

Oh, I never noticed that; anyway it isn't my writing in the first place :) HarrisonB - Conributions 08:56, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Why *?[edit]

Hey Rumping. How's that you caught that so quickly? These categories are odd things to have on your watch list. At any rate, I was trying to have all 5 subcategories of People from North Holland to show on the first page. Currently only Zaanstad is on the second, and, despite the warning that other subcategories may appear on other pages, I find it very likely that people assume that the four they see is all there is (and subsequently categorize people from Zaanstad as "People from North Holland", think someone is not in wikipedia, etc.). Any idea why the subcategories are spread over the pages and how else one can avoid that? When the number of members is large, a subcategory currently may be completely obscured. Afasmit 15:44, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

I was looking for vandalism, though I accept your changes were not. I also spotted the issue you raised - you wmight want to contribute at Wikipedia talk:Categorization#Large categories and subcategories --Rumping 15:51, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Your Recent Edits to the St. John Ambulance Article[edit]

For doing what I've meant to do but never found the time to, and probably doing it a lot better than I ever could - restructuring the St. John Ambulance article to take the emphasis away from the order of St. John, and towards the society as it actually operates now.

Speedy deletion of Template:LondonSE[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:LondonSE requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{tranclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 04:26, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Interval arithmetic[edit]

Hi, can you please move the text that is in German into your userspace, such as User:Rumping/Interval arithmetic and translate it there? We are feeding complaints from people about the article being in another language and as this is the English Wikipedia there should be no other languages in any articles. Thanks! -Pilotguy contact tower 19:12, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I am slowly translating this in parts, but if somebody else wishes to contribute, I suspect that they are more likely to find it at the current location. If somebody removes the remaining German text then they are free to do so, but that would make it less likely to ever be finished. Moving it to userspace would be too much of WP:OWN in my view. --Rumping (talk) 10:03, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi, unfortunately, I've read your message on my discussions not until today. I've read your translation and corrected a few minor things. From my point of view, you did a very good job! Regards Alexander Dreyer (talk) 21:06, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for your kind remarks. I suspect there may be more issues, as my German is extremely weak, and although I understand mathematics in general, Interval arithmetic is new to me - which is why I tried to translate it. --Rumping (talk) 22:16, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
I have to say Thank you, too. (Never found the time to do the translation myself.) I think you got the things right. Maybe, one could clarify one or two things. (It's a hard subject.) But, one should wait for the contributions (and discussions) of other users. I'll have another look at the article, after some time. --Alexander Dreyer (talk) 22:30, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Euro sign edit[edit]

About your contribution to the euro sign article [4] — there was nothing wrong with your edit, but I just want to point out that neither Wikipedia nor the world is under any obligation to adhere to the EU's "specifications," as discussed on the talk page and in the article itself. The official logo form and the accompanying rules that the EU thrust upon the Eurozone are discussed and illustrated generously, and a well-rounded article on the sign would feature the actual adaptation of the thing. Which has nothing to do with rules, but with how typographers and shopkeepers are creating the sign.

It's just getting tiresome that people keep changing the article into that old EU press release. SergioGeorgini (talk) 15:42, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

I agree that the EU rules are absurd, but given they exist, it just seems sensible to be closer to them if there is no cost of doing so. --Rumping (talk) 20:07, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Ulong, New South Wales[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Ulong, New South Wales, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Ulong. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case.

This message was placed automatically, and 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 and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 10:22, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes the bot is confused. Look at [5] and [6]. I moved content from a disambiguation page to an article. --Rumping (talk) 10:27, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Integumentary system[edit]

I believe making this a redirect to "skin" is appropriate since it is synonymous with "skin" (see the footnote on that article). Also, all the content of that article is found elsewhere in other skin articles, so no information is lost. What are your thoughts? kilbad (talk) 00:42, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

There seem to be about 500 incoming links[7]. To me this seems to suggest that given people could have linked to the easier Skin, there might be something worth saying about Integumentary system or variants of that word. Some of this may result from skin being seen as an organ, while integumentary system being seen as a system, plus the use of templates. I find the footnote in Skin rather argumentative instead of encyclopedic. As a more general comment, your method of destroying before rebuilding is not how I expect Wikipedia to be edited.[8] --Rumping (talk) 01:10, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Indeed it seems Skin appendages or adnexa such as hair and nails are part of the integumentary system but not part of the skin. Animal scales are other examples.--Rumping (talk) 01:26, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
First, let me apologize for causing any problems. I certainly only wanted to improve wikipedia, not worsen it.
  • With regard to the Integumentary system and Skin, I believe these two terms are synonymous. If you look at the first chapter of James, William; Berger, Timothy; Elston, Dirk (2005). Andrews' Diseases of the Skin: Clinical Dermatology (10th ed.). Saunders. ISBN 0721629210 the authors clearly define the skin as (1) all its layers and (2) adnexa. Lookingbill (one of my favorite derm texts, see my user page for full reference), also states "The skin has four general components, the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue, and appendages." Therefore, it would seem, the term "skin" includes the adnexa (i.e. glands, hair, and nails). However, I will be honest and say I cannot comment on "animal scales" and I am a dermatologist, not a veterinarian. With this being said, perhaps we could merge skin into "Integumentary system" and redirect it that way?
  • As far as the content of the Integumentary system article, almost all of it is found in other derm related articles, with citations (see the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue, and appendages for example); therefore, perhaps we could remove the redundancy, and link to those other articles? The disease section is another example. It has a very short list of diseases and uncited, poorly written content. We could simply add "see also" links to skin disease and list of skin diseases? As it is now, the integumentary system article has no citations, along with some misinformation.
  • With regard to the integument redirect, this term is not synonymous "Integumentary system", as it has often been used to describe, for example, the capsule of a virus (a concern which as been brought up by other users). Therefore, perhaps we could remove the redirect and add a disambiguity page?
  • With regard to the skin type redirect, in dermatology, skin types are divided into (1) glabrous skin and (2) hairy skin. However, as it currently is, skin type redirects to Human skin color#Skin tone variability. Therefore, perhaps we could make this its own article discussing glabrous skin and hairy skin (and skin tone if you like), or make it a disambiguity page?
Overall, I simply want to improve the current state of dermatology related articles found in wikipedia, hence why I started WP:DERM. I appreciate all the work you have done, and hope we can work together to sort some of these issues out. Thanks again for your input! kilbad (talk) 04:54, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
With the rational given above, would you be ok if I made some of the changes I outlined? kilbad (talk) 15:43, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
As I said earlier, I thought your edits at Skin and Integumentary system were more unhelpful than helpful. It seems others agree.[9] --Rumping (talk) 05:30, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Advice about your signature[edit]

You can use the following code for your signature since you apparently don't want a userpage:

--[[User talk:Rumping|Rumping]]

This code will display your username, and when your username is clicked, it will take users directly to your talk page. Many users who do not want a userpage use that type of signature. Please note that you will have to check the check box "Raw signature" in order for the code to work properly. Users can change their signature at Special:Preferences. -- IRP 21:29, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Is there any problem actually caused by simply redirecting User:Rumping to User talk:Rumping? --Rumping (talk) 05:30, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Names of the Irish State[edit]

Hi, you recently reverted an edit where I reverted a user trying to insert the following into an article: The state's national football team, while often referred to (including by itself) as "Ireland", officially plays as the "Republic of Ireland" because Northern Ireland also fields a team in international competitions and in 1954 FIFA was no longer prepared to tolerate two teams called "Ireland". Can you help me understand why you believe that this is relevant in the article? It appears in the "official description" section, but it has nothing to do with the official description. Is there some dispute over the description and you're using the football team as an example of something? Thank you. --HighKing (talk) 15:56, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

The name of the national football team which plays its home games in Dublin is the "Republic of Ireland". It is the representative team of the state which has its capital in Dublin, so its name is relevant to the question of the name of the Irish state. In fact the point was in the article before you were "bold" twice today[10][11] though I do not think your edit summaries fairly described what you did.--Rumping (talk) 17:27, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for responding. I don't see any problems with my edit summary. I've continued the discussion on the Talk page. BTW, looking at your other edits in this area, I think they're pretty fair. Hopefully we can reach an understanding on this point - I'm open to understanding why the point is being made - perhaps it just needs a little more work. Thanks again. --HighKing (talk) 01:09, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Estadio Usach[edit]

Hi, I deleted that article because that stadium is abandoned about 4 years ago, no professional or even amateur team plays in there,the information writed is wrong, too, S.Morning has not play a single game in there since 2004 or 2003 they play in La Pintana, but if you think, that it shouldn't be deleted... my mistake.Bye Kyosukekun (talk) 02:32, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the message. Next time you think a page should be deleted, rather than blanking a page, you should try using the methods at WP:AFD or WP:PROD. You may be correct, but after what happened at the similar Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Haman Stadium on a minimal article, others might not delete it. --Rumping (talk) 10:23, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Put a request at WP:RM. But it seems clear that his name in Latin was Sanctus Seraphin (as he wrote on his violin labels, e.g. [12]) while his name in Italian is Santo Serafin(o).--Rumping (talk) 09:42, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Puzzling edit[edit]

I find this edit puzzling. After the edit, the article no longer identified Robert Langlands and Diana Shelstad as the people that the concept was named after, and no longer linked to orbital integral and a couple of other concepts, and no longer began by telling the lay reader that mathematics is what the article is about. Also, where I had put G(F), with the G and the F properly italicized per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (mathematics), you had G(F) with no italics. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:02, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Removed prod from Tim Buckley (artist)[edit]

I've removed the proposed deletion tag from this article because PROD is only for uncontroversial deletions. Not only has the article already been through one deletion discussion (see here), which would automatically make it ineligible, but based on this discussion people are still currently objecting to its deletion. If you still believe the article should be deleted, please bring it to AfD, thank you. -- Atama 04:13, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Fine. Feel free to sort the problem out. Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tim Buckley (artist) says (February 2007) redirect and merge to the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del. But Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ctrl+Alt+Del says (March 2010) get rid of this article, Redirect to the keyboard combination Control-Alt-Delete. It would clearly be insane to redirect Tim Buckley (artist) to the keyboard combination, and the consensus seems to be that he is not notable beyond the webcomic, and that the webcomic is not notable, but nobody has agreed to delete Tim Buckley (artist). My prod was designed to complete that step, but no doubt you can find a better way.--Rumping (talk) 11:12, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Taken to AfD, since the information was previously merged to another location, which was then deleted. Please feel free to comment there, thanks. --Taelus (talk) 11:30, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Lowgraded astrocytoma[edit]

I hope we are both content with the current position. I was patrolling short pages. Usually I aim to revert them (in case of vandalism), expand them, redirect them, or propose them for speedy deletion. But at the time[14] there were only 28 characters and they did not mention astrocytoma or brain disease.

Athletics Federation of Pakistan[edit]

Hi Rumping. You removed my deletion. I think 'Athletics Federation of Pakistan' should be accurately and specified described by own article. Montell 74 (talk) 19:35, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

If you see someone's redirect you do not like, you have some options, including:
  1. Redirect it somewhere else
  2. Write an article (even a stub)
  3. Raise it at Redirects for discussion, suggesting it is deleted

Thanks, Justin W Smith talk/stalk 15:15, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Merge of station articles[edit]

I have not checked whether the two stations whose articles you recently merged were really one even although their existences did not overlap, but the resultant article is confusing for if they count as one why are they in different districts? Readers should not be puzzled.--SilasW (talk) 08:36, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Globe Road and Devonshire Street railway stations were the same location (naturally on the corner of Globe Road and what was Devonshire Street), and at some stage used the joint name (see [15]). As for Mile End or Stepney, I simply merged the articles. I would say it was in both, and that Mile End was part of Stepney. But feel free to choose whichever you prefer. --Rumping (talk) 08:58, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Butt does not suggest that they are the same station. Normally, in such cases, he uses the code "RO & RN new name" on the old station, and "RO & RF old name" on the new one. In this case he doesn't; there are separate entries for Devonshire Street, Mile End (p. 79) and Globe Road and Devonshire Street (p. 104). I am also concerned that a cut-and-paste move/merge has been performed; what should have been done was that one article should have been moved to the new name, and then a WP:FMERGE performed. However, whatever process was used, it should really have been discussed first: see Help:Merging. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:17, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
They are clearly in the same location on the same track where Globe Road and (former) Devonshire Street meet. Before we had Devonshire Street railway station and Globe Road railway station with no link to the combined name, despite maps and other mentions of the combined names. So I was bold and merged them. Since this is Wikipedia, you are of course free to undo what I did in the WP:BRD tradition.--Rumping (talk) 12:44, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Re: Skype[edit]

Thanks; I had no clue the Skype extension did that. I've disabled it, as I never use it. --Limetom 05:16, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I too had no idea that Skype would do that. --LittleOldMe (talk) 17:38, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Titin redirects listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

I've started a discussion to address the redirects associated with Titin. Since you edited one or other of the redirects at some point, or discussed it on one of the talk pages, I wanted to notify you of the redirect discussion. Carcharoth (talk) 11:36, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks - but I was only cleaning up vandalism --Rumping (talk) 16:51, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Coord precision[edit]

Hi, re this edit - six decimal places is likely to be too precise. Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject Geographical coordinates#Precision, in which it is stated that 0.000001° is approximately equal to 11 cm of latitude, or to 5.57 cm of longitude at a latitude of 60°. Railway stations can be several tens of metres wide, and several hundred metres long. A precision better than 10 metres is therefore unnecessary; this roughly corresponds to 0.0001°, four places of decimals. Most railway station articles use an accuracy of three or four decimal places. Also, by constructing the {{coord}} template in that manner, the coordinates show near the bottom of the article; to match other railway station articles and show upper right, at least one other parameter is needed: the essential one is |display=title --Redrose64 (talk) 11:24, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia - the free encyclopedia anyone can edit. The Anome did [16], so I did [17] and then you did [18]. I did what I thought was easy to improve the article. You did too. So everything is fine.--Rumping (talk) 12:12, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Skype again[edit]

Thnx for pointing something out. Not that I have the foggiest what you might be talking about. I don't intend to be rude, but since I merely reverted what I assumed to be a vandalism, I do not claim responsibility for introducing that part - just for restoring it. Didn't even notice the skype-thingamagummy. Regards, --G-41614 (talk) 12:02, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

The combined effect of the anon's edit and your undoing it can be seen at [19]. The Skype text seems to have arrived during your edit. It is typically caused by people that (a) use Firefox and (b) have a Skype add-in which highlights telephone numbers. You may also have seen a warning contained at MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-skype which suggests how to avoid the problem in future. If you don't have Firefox or Skype then I apologise. --Rumping (talk)

Skype warning template[edit]

Re {{subst:uw-skype}} - you've not served one on me (mainly because I don't have Skype, in turn because my telephone works without it...), but today I've seen you use the message on other talk pages. I have occasionally had to fixup bad edits caused by Skype, as here, so I would have used the template on that user if I'd known about it... have you thought about getting it added to Template:Singlenotice/inner and also to Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace#Single-level templates? --Redrose64 (talk) 13:05, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

I had thought about it, but given that Special:AbuseFilter/313 was supposed to deal with the problem, I didn't follow through then. I have now.--Rumping (talk) 00:19, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
Face-smile.svg Thank you BTW there's no need to copy the above back to my talk page - when editing my talk page you should have seen this message: I like to keep conversations in one place - it causes less confusion. --Redrose64 (talk) 12:12, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
If I keep it here it looks as if you are stalking me (see above) ;) --Rumping (talk) 12:39, 3 June 2010 (UTC)
No, not WP:STALKing: I noticed it with this edit - I have that user's talk page on my watchlist, because I have left messages there in the past, one or more of which remain unresolved. --Redrose64 (talk) 13:14, 3 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) 18:39, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. The whole thing looks far too complicated, but if this tool is helpful, I may use it.--Rumping (talk) 21:20, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Technical terminology vandalized again[edit]

You seem to be on top of the vandals to this page, and I'm new and have no idea how to proceed. I can't even figure out to what version it should be rolled back! Thanks for whatever you can do. Bearhair (talk) 23:30, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Climate change probation[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to the encyclopedia! In case you are not already aware, an article to which you have recently contributed, Climatic Research Unit email controversy, is on article probation. A detailed description of the terms of article probation may be found at Wikipedia:General sanctions/Climate change probation. Also note that the terms of some article probations extend to related articles and their associated talk pages.

The above is a templated message. Please accept it as a routine friendly notice, not as a claim that there is any problem with your edits. Thank you.

Please note that the page concerned is under a 1RR editing restriction, if you are unfamiliar with what this means you are advised to request clarification before making any edits to the article. It's probably best to resolve any disagreements on the article talk page before adding contentious text. By the way, this notification goes to all editors on the relevant articles. Thanks, dave souza, talk 17:44, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

It is interesting then those controlling the article remove relevant referenced information from that article and then use this notice to warn off those they are challenging. You might consider the four points at the start of the essay on Wikipedia:Wikilawyering. In any case, you have succeeded in driving me away from that article for a period, as has happened before. --Rumping (talk) 20:50, 8 July 2010 (UTC)


Hi, Wikipedia policy is to minimise the use of copyrighted material, and therefore having three practically identical images violates at least two of our policies, image overuse for obvious reasons, and replaceability because the working of the scrollbar can easily be explained in the text (which it is). They probably also fail the necessity clause for the same reason. Similarly, there is not a POV issue because the issues are clearly explained in the text. Black Kite (t) (c) 09:47, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

I disagree with that analysis. I think there is a POV issue if we use five logos rather than twelve, given that (as states) the majority of the remainder have already complained about being almost invisible. The images are not "almost identical", since the key copyrighted elements (the browser names, logos and descriptions) are very different. More seriously, this should not just be about creating reasons for applying CSD criteria, but should be subject to a proper discussion in a proper location. --Rumping (talk) 10:06, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Discussion should either take place on the talkpage or at a Files for deletion discussion for the two other images. Our non-free image policy is very clear here; non-free images are not used unless they are minimal, necessary and non-replaceable. Please do not re-instate the additional images without explaining exactly how they meet these three criteria of WP:NFCC (1, 3a and 8) as required by the policy page. Also, it is not Wikipedia's place to pass judgement on the rights or wrongs of an argument between MS and other companies, only to report that such a disagreement exists. Thankyou. Black Kite (t) (c) 10:18, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
Indeed. I think I started something at just before your message, and you have already responded there. It may not be for Wikipedia to pass judgement, but it is for Wikipedia to provide background information in an NPOV manner, and in my view a single screenshot does not.--Rumping (talk) 10:37, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)[edit]

Hello. Re: Your comment: "but it is in existing reference". Could you point me to the exact minute (I presume you mean the Melbourne DVD?) that supports the reference to Dracula. And, if it does, it will need to be reworded to clarify whose interpretation it is (Meat Loaf's? the director's? "Meat Loaf says that some people have interpreted..."?). I own the DVD that you claim supports the statement and will be able to verify it immediately. The JPStalk to me 19:37, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I am not worried about Dracula; I am looking at the four things he say he will never do. They are clearly in the existing references (currently #8): the middle of [20] and the bottom of [21]. Do what you like to Dracula. --Rumping (talk) 19:58, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh, you meant the lyrics. Yes, we had to remove some because one of the reviewers thought we'd quoted an excessive amount. I'm not so bothered about that. I'm more concerned about ensuring that everything is referenced correctly, without original research. The JPStalk to me 20:45, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of CA-Cricket Presents[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 CA-Cricket Presents requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

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. 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. Fleet Command (talk) 12:27, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

I don't feel strongly - it was a stub to replace a redlink. But it doesn't really meet the CSD criteria and is a fairly harmless though potentially useful article.--Rumping (talk) 09:44, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

London Conference of 1838–39 listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect London Conference of 1838–39. Since you had some involvement with the London Conference of 1838–39 redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion (if you have not already done so). Rationale: "Treaty of London (1839)" has never been referred to as "London Conference of 1838–39". Pdfpdf (talk) 16:23, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

  • There was a London Conference in 1838 and 1839, and it led to to the Treaty of London (1839). That is good enough for me. Redirects are cheap. --Rumping (talk) 18:04, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi. When you recently edited Bermondsey by-election, 1909, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page South East London (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Criticism of Wikipedia[edit]

You commented in the RfD discussion about Criticism of Wikipedia at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2012 August 5#Criticism of Wikipedia. That discussion was closed as "moot" due it having been unilaterally converted to an article during the discussion. I chose to boldly implement the apparent consensus of that discussion and the previous discussions linked from it, and reverted it to a disambiguation page. That action has been reverted due to a perceived lack of discussion. I would welcome your comments at Talk:Criticism of Wikipedia to see if consensus can be reached again for an dab page, article or redirect. Thryduulf (talk) 00:39, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Raising of Jairus' daughter[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Raising of Jairus' daughter has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No need for separate article (info can be included in the Miracles of Jesus article), per WP:BKD.

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. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
