Talk among people, not robots
Norawashere inspired me to take some responsibility for this page upon realising that people do actually see and use it - hence I'm adding this section about contributions from people. At some point I might learn how to use this page properly to reflect my discussion on various articles and projects, but that's not high priority right now. Alixos (talk) 00:06, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Cobi, I am in total agreement with your statements about not wanting to participate in the discussion about gender bias if such participation is not part of the solution. I am very new to Wikipedia and I have not made many edits although I have spent countless hours reading circular tutorials and policy rules and statements in an effort to develop some feeling that I knew what the heck I was trying to do. I strongly believe that systemic changes are needed in order to support all editors. If all groups are solicited and all participants are "held by the hand" while they are getting started as an editor, I think that would go a long way towards building relationships and decreasing the phenomenon of disappearing editors.
I see what you mean about the 'the' and the page that you posted gave me a good laugh.
Hi! I'm not particularly "active" these days - I've only just noticed Wikipedia:Meetup/Adelaide/Meetup 17 and thus am sorry to discover I missed it. I'd be interested to know what happened. Cheers, Pdfpdf (talk) 13:22, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Your submission at Articles for creation
Proposed merger with Lands inhabited by indigenous peoples
Greetings. I noticed your new article, Ancestral domain, and I think that the topic is already taken up at Lands inhabited by indigenous peoples. Would you consider merging your content into that page? If you'd like to discuss this with other interested parties, I set up an area for discussion at Talk:Lands_inhabited_by_indigenous_peoples#Merger_proposal.2C_Ancestral_domain. See WP:Merge for more information. —Largo Plazo (talk) 11:31, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
Nomination of Ancestral domain for deletion
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ancestral domain until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. —Largo Plazo (talk) 13:19, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia.
I noticed an article you worked on. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:
- commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
- common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).
This even applies for infoboxes.
Thanks and my best wishes.
Week 6 of WIKISOO
Hi Alixos! Just checking in as we head into the final week of the Writing Wikipedia Articles class. You can look through last week's ether pad notes, check out your homework assignments from Week 5, and watch last week's lecture on YouTube - all right here. Check out my note from last week (above) if you're still diving into your Final Project... or head over to the course talk page to see if anyone else is having the same issues you are! Looking forward to seeing you in the last live webinar of the session tomorrow. Big WikiLove. -Sara FB (talk) 23:20, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi Alixos, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
