July 2013[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Mossi people has been reverted.
Your edit here to Mossi people was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed ( is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 13:18, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

African art[edit]

Re these changes, where do they all come from? They are totally unreferenced - what is "this study"? Please see WP:RS and WP:COPYVIO. You need to add citations to sources. As it stands the lengthy preamble is much too long for this summary article, & the whole thing might be better dispersed in other articles - Burkina Faso, Art of Burkina Faso, Mossi people, African mask etc, with just a brief summary here.

The content was copied and pasted from here [1] Theroadislong (talk) 21:17, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Which is "Copyright 2002 by Christopher D. Roy" - so will need rewriting to avoid self-copyvio, or a release of the copyright (somewhat fiddly). Johnbod (talk) 02:04, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
