Philip the Arab[edit]

According to Bowersock, Roman Arabia, p.122 : "Philip was an Arab from the city Shahbaa, at the edge of the Leja's near the western slopes of the Jebel Druuz"

And the Wiki article claims that the Syrian emperor was called "Arab" because he was born in the Roman province only. Irfan Shahid also supports that the man was of Arabian background. (and some others)GoulGoul1 (talk) 21:13, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Ni'ilya and Al-Sawafir al-Gharbiyya both qualifies as DYKs presently, however, they both still have the Coord missing...If you could fix that, and possibly nominate them, it would be great. Say, "Did you know.... that the depopulated Palestinian villages of Ni'ilya and Al-Sawafir al-Gharbiyya both were mentioned in the 1596 Ottoman dafter?" Huldra (talk) 22:08, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for expanding these @Huldra:. Just nominated them, but I'm not too confident about the hook. If you think of any alternatives, let me know. Cheers --Al Ameer (talk) 23:55, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello, it is good to see expansion has started on User:Al Ameer son/Ramadan al-Shallash. Are you happy for me to tweak the wording while it is still in userspace, or would you prefer I wait until it is in mainspace? MPS1992 (talk) 19:53, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

@MPS1992: That would be great. I got way off track, as I'm wont to do, but decided to tackle this draft now because al-Kharrat is slated to appear on the Main Page soon. I'm about to expand it considerably in the coming hour. Please feel free to copyedit whenever you like. Cheers! --Al Ameer (talk) 20:53, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Request![edit]

Hello Al Ameer son, can you improve the introduction of Arabs article, I've added the sources for the ethnic group, but the introduction need to be improved. Regards--Marlo Jonesa (talk) 03:09, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

@Marlo Jonesa: I fixed some of the grammar and flow, but a good lead needs to reflect the body of the article. Since—last I checked—the body is in bad shape, the lead won't be much better. Eventually, all citations should be moved to the body, not the lead. But that can be implemented later. Cheers --Al Ameer (talk) 17:37, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
Great changes, thanks!. In fact the entire article needs extensive work, I'll work on it with time. Regards--Marlo Jonesa (talk) 09:02, 24 January 2017 (UTC)
There is a problem on a template [disputed – discuss] can you explain this in the talk and there also GoulGoul1 doesn't stop messing like sock puppetry.--Marlo Jonesa (talk) 05:06, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Very funny Hailes. Last time I checked, you're the one who has multiple accounts who were banned for not knowing how to behave. I don't remember ever attacking the Arabs article with any heavy editing like you do. My only complaints are in sentences, so if I were you, I would think several times before trying to "accuse" me of anything. Meanwhile, you were never able to give any reasonable answer to any of my questions. GoulGoul1 (talk) 22:16, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

@Yoninah: Having reviewed the nomination page, I'm not sure I'd be of much help, unfortunately. A few of the sources seem unreliable or dead links (#14, #20), and many are Arabic-script sources, where I'd be useless.

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e. as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time, and that you have not been inactive from administrative tasks for a five year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. Further, following a community discussion in March of 2018, Administrators suspended for inactivity who have not had any logged administrative activity for five years will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts. — JJMC89 bot 00:04, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Commons cat[edit]

Dear Al Ameer son,

I am not sure you realise, but with the new wikidata link, we don't really need an external link, like this, anymore. The commons cat for Maaraba, Daraa can be easily reached on the left side, under the heading "in other projects" where it says: "Wikimedia Commons". Huldra (talk) 20:53, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
