Category:Members of the States-Provincial for North Holland[edit]

Ok. You contest the deletion. But the category is still empty. We don't generally leave empty categories lingering around the project. If you truly believe that this is a useful category, please populate it. If it remains empty, it's useless to the project. - TexasAndroid (talk) 13:49, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi, I agree that the category should not remain empty, therefore I asked a question (Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Categories#How to respond when someone makes massive changes in categorization) how to revert the bad move of the category to Category:Members of the Provincial-Council of North Holland. It took much time to contest all those deletions of the old categories (ther were 11 more of them), so there remained no time to revert the moves. Also I thought perhaps a moderator has some tools to do it quicker than I can. Bever (talk) 03:03, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
    • Hmm. No tools, no. There's a bot that does mass recategorizations, but it's mostly for implementing changes from WP:CFD. If the original move came out of a CFD debate, you may be out of luck in getting them auto-moved back. If it was done manually be a user, your best path forward might be to propose a rename back to the old names. Interesting situation. - TexasAndroid (talk) 14:40, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
      • I have put a list of all categories on my sandbox page. I still have to sort out the correct explanation and placement and templates. Bever (talk) 22:27, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

December 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm Babitaarora. An edit you recently made to Assemblywomen seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Babita arora 07:09, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

No, this was not a test edit. Please read the edit comment before reverting. Bever (talk) 07:19, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

International Boxing Union (1913–1946)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of International Boxing Union (1913–1946), and it appears to include material copied directly from

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

For the record, I did not create a new page which may or may not have a copyright problem. It is a copy from this old version of the old article International Boxing Union which I have split into two articles about two non-related organizations with that name.

Responded on article's talk page. ~ RobTalk 05:11, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hello. :) Thank you for attributing your split. When you split or copy content in the future, can you please add {{copied}} to the talk page as well as adding the URL or direct wikilink in the edit summary? It is very helpful in avoiding such confusion later. Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia explains a little more. I'll add it for this case. :) Thanks. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:45, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

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.
