Saladin[edit]

Please stop. If you continue to vandalize pages, you will be blocked from editing Wikipedia.


i was not vandalizing it, all i did was facts, i was going to put referancces. tell me what was wrong.

As far as I am concerned, you put in a lot of spelling mistakes, non-standard Wiki-Links, and unsourced material. Saladin was not a "scientest", or even a scientist. He did not unify "the Muslims", but some groups of them in the middle east. Andalusia, for example, was not involved. Raynald_of_Chatillon may have been an asshole, but no chronicler claims he died in anything but an execution. And so on. You seem to have a very much idealized image of Saladin, However, Wikipedia is bound by a neutral point of view. We do not glorify people. We describe them as well as we manage, good deeds and faults. --Stephan Schulz (talk) 22:48, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Mohammed Mahmoud Khalil palace[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Mohammed Mahmoud Khalil palace requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. NuclearWarfare (talk) 21:24, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

How to stop speedy deletions...[edit]

I've noticed you have a few recent articles that have become tagged for speedy deletion. I have had similar things happen to me recently, until I figured one key thing out: REFERENCES.

Every single thing you say in Wikipedia must be verifiable with EXTERNAL references...that means, the website of that specific location does NOT count, as it is officially related to the original article.

I can pretty much guarantee that you will NOT have deletions (or even arguments about your input on other articles) if you do the following:

  • include at least 2 (recommend 3) unrelated external references in every new article
  • establish NOTABILITY in the original article (as in, "why does REALLY this matter to 8 billion people")

All the best in your editing! BMW(drive) 21:41, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

I have added 2 more referances--Ashashyou (talk) 06:00, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Pssstt...and don't forget, ANY time you type on a TALK or DISCUSSION page, you must use four Tilde's (4 x ~) in order to "sign" your message :) BMW(drive) 22:50, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you--Ashashyou (talk) 06:01, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

List of palaces in Egypt[edit]

Hi. I've been updating this page (as you can probably see) - I've incorporated your latest changes, and included references - where I could find them - you might want to double check to see I haven't added any errors. CultureDrone (talk) 09:39, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Oh - and where you had 'abolished' (done away with), I presume you meant 'demolished' (building removed) -I've changed them to "demolished", but please change it back if this wasn't what you meant :-) CultureDrone (talk) 09:41, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind help--Ashashyou (talk) 09:47, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok - if you can stop editing the page, I'll have a look and see if I can sort things out. I'll drop you a message when I've finished. CultureDrone (talk) 13:15, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok - it's sorted - all you'd done is miss off an </ref> tag on one of your references, so it was taking everything on the page after that as part of the reference - an easy mistake :-) One comment - if I were you, I'd add a description to your references - having them listed at the end as just {x}<> isn't very helpful - if you could add a description of what the link is, it would look better :-) CultureDrone (talk) 13:22, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks i figured what was wrong, thank you again.--Ashashyou (talk) 13:23, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Hi Ashashyou, i think that you are right,the category is about the metropolitan areas in Egypt not in the world so i apologise for this unmeant error .--Elmondo21st (talk) 19:12, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Kamal el-Mallakh[edit]

The article is a good idea. But the sources, despite being in another article, aren't 'reliable sources'. -- WP:RS. But I've added some on the talk page of the article to give you a start. One line really isn't enough, the best thing to do is create an article on a subpage of yours until it is ready, to make sure it doesn't get speedy deleted. And make sure you have good sources. There are also quite a few books that mention him. Read this also [1]. --Doug Weller (talk) 11:42, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Masalla Matarayyiah 2.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading Image:Masalla Matarayyiah 2.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the image. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thanks again for your cooperation. Sdrtirs (talk) 21:00, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Image without license[edit]

Unspecified source for Image:Khedive Ismail- El Raml-Alexandria1.jpg[edit]

Copyright-excl.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Khedive Ismail- El Raml-Alexandria1.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 18:52, 24 July 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? --MifterBot (TalkContribsOwner) 18:52, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Geriatrics contribution[edit]

Hi Ashashyou. Thanks for elaborating on and adding further contributions from other Arabic physicians. I only recently became aware of Avicenna's contributions to geriatrics, but had no idea about other Arabic contributions to the field. You can access the article I cited for Avicenna here:

http://ageing.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/citation/16/1/58

However, I think you'll need to check if your institution has a subscription to the journal, in order to access the article.

Regards, Jagged 85 (talk) 00:28, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Notify[edit]

Dear Ashashyou can you please check Talk:Ain_Shams_University#Merger_proposal Can you enhance the articles? Best regards--Puttyschool (talk) 14:57, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm listing short accurate data from the web site, please provide a referance for your changes.--Puttyschool (talk) 19:03, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
OK, Thank you for all the help.--Ashashyou (talk) 19:05, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Dear Ashashyou, Ain_Shams_University_Faculty_of_Medicine is revised by a neutral admin. The words that he removed, after analyzing them, I found that they must be removed or changed according to the wiki guide. So please keep it and do not change it any more, about the clinical units, I kept them on the talk page, they form a long list, and will not add more than treatment of million patients/year, they are included, and intensive care units are more significant. I believe that any wiki article must show what will interest the international user not only the local user.--Puttyschool (talk) 14:35, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Cardiogeriatrics[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Cardiogeriatrics, 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Paul Ghalioungui[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Paul Ghalioungui requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Category:Dinosaur Fauna of Egypt, which you created, has been nominated for deletion, merging, or renaming.

I do think that there is potential for a dedicated article instead of a category, or perhaps even an article about the dinosaurs of northern Africa in general, as several genera are found in more than one such country (particularly Algeria, Morocco, and Egypt).

Geriatric medicine in Egypt[edit]

Hello. I wanted to salute your extensive WP contributions. Additionally, since you are the principal contributor to Geriatric medicine in Egypt I wanted to give you a nod that I cleaned up some of the article elements. Most of these edits should be uncontroversial. However, there were some sections that I judged were of excessive detail and I removed them to enhance the article generally. If your knowledge and experience suggests that these redacted portions have meaningful value, please add them back.FeatherPluma (talk) 13:52, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Flint stone bracelets and armlets of Egypt[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Flint stone bracelets and armlets of Egypt requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be a clear copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. DoriTalkContribs 08:20, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

May 2012[edit]

Your addition to Nawamis has been removed, as it appears to have added copyrighted material to Wikipedia without permission from the copyright holder. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other websites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. You may use external websites or publications as a source of information, but not as a source of article content such as sentences or images. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. And other articles. Most of your recent edits have been copy and paste from websites. You've had enough warnings about copyright violations (mainly images) in the past that you should be aware of our policy on copyright (and note that minor changes are not enough). I'll also note that generally blogs (except where there is editorial supervision) are not considered reliable sources (see WP:RS). That's a minor point however in comparison to the copyright problem. I need you to demonstrate that you understand our policy on copyright and how you will avoid violating it in the future. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Flint stone bracelets and armlets of Egypt[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Flint stone bracelets and armlets of Egypt has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

After three weeks of being blanked, I think it's time to simply delete this page.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

New medical organization[edit]

Hi

I'm contacting you because, as a participant at Wikiproject Medicine, you may be interested in a new multinational non-profit organization we're forming at m:Wikimedia Medicine. Even if you don't want to be actively involved, any ideas you may have about our structure and aims would be very welcome on the project's talk page.

Our purpose is to help improve the range and quality of free online medical content, and we'll be working with like-minded organizations, such as the World Health Organization, professional and scholarly societies, medical schools, governments and NGOs - including Translators Without Borders.

Hope to see you there! --Anthonyhcole (talk) 21:15, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I'm Olowe2011. Ashashyou, thanks for creating Miko Peled!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. —Preceding undated comment added 15:22, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Epeefleche. I noticed that you made a change to an article, but you didn't provide a reliable source.

If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. LIsts of people --even within articles -- require that names not be included if there is no wp article, and no appropriate independent RS refs. See wp:listpeople.

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

Egyptian place[edit]

Hello Ashashyou,

I am looking for a bit of help from an Egyptian editor on Wiki, and you appear to be one of the few who is currently active. I see you are a member of the military history project, so I wondered if you can simply help me identify a historical place in Egypt which I have been unable to find on Google?

The place is somewhere in Sinai, said to be on the edge of the Sinai desert, and is referred to as El Saliyeh or Salalieh by historians. Napoleon Bonaparte fought a small battle there in 1798 against the Mamelukes, but apart from a few French and British sources dating from the 19th century I cannot find any modern references to such a place to help me find it on a map. Perhaps it was renamed following an internal conflict or for other reasons?

Would appreciate if you have any information regarding the modern name and location, assuming it still exists.

Thanks, Ma®©usBritish{chat} 16:10, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Medical Translation Newsletter
Issue 1, June/July 2014

Wiki Project Med Foundation logo.svg
TWB.svg

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?


IEG grant
CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [4]

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

March Madness 2017[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other 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 military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

Proposed deletion of Disc of Sabu[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Disc of Sabu has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This is a fringe story that's doing the rounds. No reliable sources, just an echo chamber of speculation. Specifically WP:FRINGE and maybe even WP:HOAX.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

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

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

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.
