Hello, Akitora, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Yeah, the above is all just boilerplate, I'm afraid. But this isn't. Welcome to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Don't spend too great a proportion of your time at "AfD": it's easy to develop a jaundiced view of humanity there. Writing articles is where it's at. -- Hoary (talk) 10:21, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Seems you took that to heart: excellent work! -- Hoary (talk) 13:16, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks mate! - wasn't hard, just copy paste and chasing up the citations :) Nice to know someone is out there making sure I don't go crazy with power :) Akitora (talk) 22:19, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikiproject Terrorism, we're glad to have you aboard! We could use your help in our discussions, as well as ideas to help improve the project's coordination! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. Sherurcij (Speaker for the Dead) 21:20, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Ancient Japan[edit]

Hello. You've been adding a lot of stuff to Category:Ancient Japan. Please note that the category states:

This period is including the Japanese Paleolithic, Jōmon, Yayoi, and Kofun periods of Japanese History

Much the literature, to name a few, is Nara period which is well after Kofun. I think it is appropriate to remove a number of stuff from the category. Bendono (talk) 12:31, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Noted - I'm going back through and double checking - they are all articles from subclasses of Ancient Japan so I didn't give it much thought at the time.Akitora (talk) 12:24, 11 April 2008 (UTC)


Hi, glad to see someone working on this. I got bogged down on the dates of the main periods, which are no where near as clearcut as the article suggests (making the article in fact a very bad source for the dates, although some of the links at the bottom are pretty good). If you can figure out how to get the dating to match current research that would be great!Doug Weller (talk) 11:25, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Wouldn't it :) I'm actually going to go one step further after reading the criticisms of Prof. Charles Keally and invite him to rewrite it for us as the expert! We'll see...
Good luck. By the way, he told me he isn't sure how long his web pages will be up, so you might want to take copies of them.

And he's been criticised (maybe on a talk page here, I can't recall) for being out of date....Doug Weller (talk) 12:50, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Anaparambil Joseph John.JPG)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Anaparambil Joseph John.JPG. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:30, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Canberra meetup invitation (August 2016)[edit]

I'll be in Canberra from the 29-30 August, there is a planned meet-up at King O'Malley's (though I'm open to suggestions) from 6pm on the 29 August. Sorry for the short noticed, only had the trip confirmed this afternoon. Bidgee (talk) 10:55, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:02, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
