Smalltalk[edit]

Hi, I was told that you moved Smalltalk from "Academic" to "Industrial" in Template:Major programming languages small. Could you please explain your justification for this? —Sean κ. 16:36, 19 May 2005 (UTC)

Regine Velasquez[edit]

Just to let you know that Wikipedia style is to place punctuation outside quotation marks (unless the punctuation is part of what's being quoted), and that we use the serial comma. Also, the subjects of articles shouls be referred to by their surnames, not their first names. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 10:22, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for your response; my apologies for suggesting that you hadn't used commas correctly — you had of course. However, the placing of punctuation outside inverted commas does indeed apply to titles (even if they did imply full stops, which I don't think that they do, that wouldn't explain placing commas inside inverted commas). I agree, though, that your work on the article improved it immensely. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 23:18, 14 August 2005 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels[edit]

Hi thank you for joining the WikiProject. Being a small group currently there is still plenty of scope for influencing things and making your contribution count. We are about establishing standards for Novel based articles and writing articles that meet our own and others high standards, and to improve Wikipedia's diet of articles on Fiction books, otherwise called Novels. If you have any questions, do ask. Please be very welcome. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page) 09:34, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

John Kinnamos[edit]

Hi Allan,

I'm sorry to say I don't know for sure. But Iohannes Tzimiskes is listed under John I Tzimiskes, so I suppose John can stay. Thanks for fixing double-redirects - that was slack of me. Cheers, Slac speak up! 23:31, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Disambiguation style[edit]

Thank you for your work on NUC. Unfortunately, disambiguation pages do not follow the same stylistic rules as normal pages. In particular,

  • there should be only one live link per entry.
  • entries should show their true names and not use piped links.
  • alphabetical or chronological order is good, but when there is a small number of "most important" items, those should be placed at the top.

Please see the disambiguation style guide for more information. If you have any questions not answered there, drop me a note or try the help desk. By the way, I have already brought NUC into line with the guidelines. Matchups 12:33, January 26, 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I tried going through the history to figure out who had done what and I think I inadvertently attributed to you issues which had been introduced by subsequent editors. I will try to be more careful next time. I generally sign my posts and probably forgot because I had my handle in the body of the comment; I've corrected that omission above.

Byzantine literature[edit]

Yes it's the 2007 version and don't worry, I'm not using their text. I rewrote the meaning of their text in my own words. I can't see how this could be cited with greater precision. Btw I kept the sections of the catholic encyclopedia, eventhough I believe they should be removed. Miskin (talk) 15:54, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Valesius[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Valesius, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

Notability tag on Edward Catich page[edit]

Hi there! The Edward Catich page was not proposed for deletion. It seems this subject may indeed be notable, but that notability should be established through independent sources, not just through a bibliography of books written by the subject. I therefore tagged it as requiring more sources to establish its notability. Please see the guidelines on independent sources. You mention in your message on my talk page that search engines link to sources that verify this subject's notability. Those may include independent sources that the article could link to. Respectfully, --lightspeedchick (talk) 23:13, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

RTTS[edit]

You've done an edit or two on RTTS. It's been nominated for deletion, according to some twisting of WP policy. Could you weigh in on this? --141.160.5.251 (talk) 20:44, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello AllanBz! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 2 of the articles that you created are tagged as Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. if you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 2,420 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. George A. Spadoro - Find sources: "George A. Spadoro" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
