Speedy deletion nomination of Iana Kasian[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 Iana Kasian requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, 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 from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 02:16, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

  • It's a little frustrating, quite time-consuming, and more than a little discouraging to have a new article both prematurely tagged for deletion while it's still being created, and to also have competitive and redundant editing happen simultaneously, while still expanding sources. I imagine all to be quite well-meaning, but give an editor a reasonable chance to finish a new entry that is clearly in progress. Thanks AHampton (talk) 03:14, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Ideally, editing should not be competitive, but complementary, as competitive editing may quickly lead to edit warring. Consensus can be reached in article talk. -Mardus /talk 04:31, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Do not modify entered text in Talk.[edit]

And never, ever modify existing content in talk pages, especially in talk pages of other editors, and even if it's your own text. It's a huge no-no. -Mardus /talk 03:40, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

"And, never, ever..."? I added to my own note that I had just written because I had forgot to answer to your Murderers category comment in the edits notes. I couldn't find the talk link for the page. (I'd thought you meant well, but high-handedness is as discouraging as simultaneous, competitive editing.)
'Never, ever' really does apply to existing content in talk pages. An editor can change their own comment only to fix typos or improve wording to avoid ambiguity (as I very occasionally do so myself), so long it does not significantly change the nature and spirit of what was previously stated. For phrases, you can use the <strike></strike> tags, but use those with care. If you've changed your mind about something, then adding a new line with a signature is the safer option.
If you want to add new discussion points, then do so from a new line, instead of editing an existing comment. -Mardus /talk 04:28, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Oregon[edit]

Hi AHampton,

You are invited to join WikiProject Oregon, a group of editors working on improving articles about Oregon. I thought you might be interested, based on some of your contributions to Wikipedia. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:36, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi @Another Believer: Right, except we're nearly done packing up to move to Ohio, as it happens! (Just when I was getting to know Oregon!) Appreciate the thought, but I guess we're moving on up... in a northeasterly direction! AHampton (talk) 00:23, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Interview invitation to follow up the invitation to join a WikiProject[edit]

Hi AHampton,

Hope you are doing well! In the past several weeks, you might receive an message from a senior editor inviting you to join a WikiProject. I want to have an interview with you about your experience and thought on it.

The interview will be about 30 - 45 minutes via phone, Skype or Google Hangout whichever works best for you. You will receive a $10 gift card as compensation afterwards. Please let me know if you could help. Thank you! Bobo.03 (talk) 15:08, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Bobo.03. I didn't know interviews happened on Wikipedia. I've seen projects pop up that looked interesting, but my mom life is a bit hectic and unpredictable, especially when/if kids are ill; I do hate to be unreliable, so haven't joined any. Having said that, it is very nice to be asked anyway. Thanks!

Your edit on Jaguar Land Rover[edit]

Hello. I have reverted your edit since the article is written in British English, and "marque" is the proper British English term for cars (i.e. the British English equivalent to US English "brand"...). - Tom | Thomas.W talk 17:01, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, @Thomas.W:, my mistake... I'd read it as French. AHampton (talk) 03:56, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

August 2018[edit]

Hello, I'm Oshwah. An edit you recently made to Neta Snook Southern seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. 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. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 17:11, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Not sure why anyone would think a typo is a test, especially considering my previous edits to that page, but glad you caught it. (A test of what?) AHampton (talk) 04:50, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Beeganism[edit]

Hello Alicia. On my Talk page, you said: (Seems impossible that mine is the first note on your Talk page, yet I see no others. Note: after dealing with a Talk page comment, I delete it, indicating it's been read, but it remains in history). Point taken on "beegans," but I wonder why you deleted the whole reference? I'd never heard of beegans until I saw it there, which someone else had questioned, and so added a source of that very name (admittedly, without vetting the source), because the item is about language, and not substantive to the topic. I'd have found a more academic reference, if necessary (though language evolves from all sectors, and academic ones are historically among the last sources to include new language or terms); I don't think the item should just be deleted, though — I, for one, would not have known the term existed had I not seen it there, for instance. Why not just "better source" tag it? Curious.

As my edit note stated, use of the word is fringe and with undue weight for a source absent from the scientific literature, (WP:RSUW). The term "beeganism" has no hits on Google Trends, and has no results when searched on the US National Library of Medicine database, PubMed. It's likely a fad (WP:NOTFORUM), is somewhat promotional (WP:SOAP), and is not encyclopedic to include it. Following you here on your Talk page, so I'll watch for any response. Good luck! --Zefr (talk) 23:17, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your considerate response... I actually got the education I was looking for (after seeing your credentials). How refreshing! Much appreciated,AHampton (talk) 00:47, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
