Indonesian Wali Sanga[edit]

I am very sorry but I fail to see why or how the Wali Sanga are in anyway related to Ali al-Uraidhi ibn Ja'far al-Sadiq - could you possibly explain please? SatuSuro 07:28, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Silsilah are not really sufficiently to cover the requirements of what WP:ABOUT - they tend to come from one source - there are rarely any WP:RS - and can in effect lack any WP:V - literally they are WP:ONESOURCE - I would like to not query the issue - but really - to claim any connection between the claimed descendants - it is insufficiently covered - if you were able to find alternative sources - it would help... also if you are going to add see also = please do not just tack onto the end of the list - please try to at least insert in alphabetical order! If you are reverted by other editors - dont take it personally - just find more references!

If you cannot - then you need - with a lot of WP:AGF - to understand that the average wikipedian editor has not met the tradition of silsilah and the connections that are claimed that cannot be proved in reasonable levels of independent third party sources. You will have to simply try harder to find alternative reliable sources, some editors might not be as understanding SatuSuro 09:15, 3 February 2010 (UTC).

February 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions. Please remember to mark your edits as "minor" only if they truly are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes, or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. RDavi404 (talk) 14:32, 8 February 2010 (UTC)


I just noticed that Ghulat already exists; as the latter is by far the more standard term, I think it would be a good move to merge and redirect Ghali there. Gordonofcartoon (talk) 17:51, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

3RR Violation[edit]

You are in violation of 3RR (3 Reverts) rule on Copt. Please revert your own change immediately, otherwise I will be forced to report this violation. Thank you for your understanding. --λⲁⲛτερⲛιξ[talk] 09:29, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. If the edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

You have been reported for 3RR Violation here. --λⲁⲛτερⲛιξ[talk] 09:48, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

May 2010[edit]

Please stop indiscriminately marking your edits as "minor". A quick review of your recent edits shows that you have marked most of them as "minor", although most of them do not match that description. As Rdavi404 has already explained above, a minor edit is one that requires no review. In other words, typo fixes, small formatting adjustments, vandalism reversion, etc. -- stuff that is 100% uncontroversial and typically not so much fact-oriented as presentation-oriented. When in doubt it's safer to not mark edits as "minor". Thanks! AtticusX (talk) 14:34, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Muhammad ibn Abdullah al-Aftah[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Muhammad ibn Abdullah al-Aftah has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Hoax. Work cited is non-existant - completely unverifiable.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Claritas § 15:59, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Thilo Sarrazin‎[edit]

Please do not categorise people unless there is clear evidence in the article backed by reliable sources for the category. WP:BLP, which is policy and not optional, says "Category names do not carry disclaimers or modifiers, so the case for each category must be made clear by the article text and its reliable sources".

Baloch people[edit]

The more you argue over this the more I'm convinced that you are User:SyedNaqvi90, and I didn't accuse you of turning all Baloch to Shias. In Wikipedia you must cite a reliable source, it's useless to argue without providing sources. This person (Strider11) is also using multiple IDs.

Invitation to take part in a study[edit]

I am a Wikipedian, who is studying the phenomenon on Wikipedia. I need your help to conduct my research on about understanding "Motivation of Wikipedia contributors." I would like to invite you to Main Study. Please give me your valuable time, which estimates about 20 minutes. I chose you as a English Wikipedia user who made edits recently through the RecentChange page.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
