Ambox warning pn.svg

The article Algoa Bus Company has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article, which appeared to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. NawlinWiki (talk) 17:56, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Stellenbosch to bid for Wikimania 2012![edit]

Hi Crazy Dude!

The nascent South African Wikimedia chapter has decided to bid to host Wikimania in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 2012. This would be the first Wikimania in South Africa, and would be a great advertisement for our country. Please take a look at meta:Wikimania_2012/Bids/Stellenbosch. If you can add to the discussion, please do. If you feel that you are able to do anything to help, please join the Wikimedia South Africa mailing list and let us know. Even simple messages of support are valued!

Best regards,

David Richfield

South Africa 2011 AYC[edit]

Thanks, I've tracked down a few players from news reports on the 2011 African Youth Championship squads page. Are you the same crazydude from SkyScraperCity? TheBigJagielka (talk) 20:49, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Template:African football[edit]

Hi dear, I saw that u maked changes in Template:African football by adding All-Africa Games in the youth competitions, I saw that u put the reason that's because it's U-23 competition.
However All-Africa Games is same as the Olympic Games, it's true that there are the U-23 teams wich participate, however, till 1991 the A team participate on the game. And from 1991 each team add 3 or 4 players with more then 23 years.
Because this, I changed and put the competition in its place. Greetings. --Faycal.09 (talk) 14:15, 16 Octobre 2011 (UTC)

First Division Currie Cup attendance[edit]

Hello Crazy.. Still dont really know how to use this. But i used the crowd attendance figures obtained from the SARU website. However, i totalled them all up and that was the figure i obtained. However that is not the complete crowd attendance, 3 matches were not available, so the total average should be out of 30 matches instead of 33.

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited South Africa national football team, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bata (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Inviting you to WikiAfrica Incubator![edit]

Hey Crazydude22,

WikiAfrica invites you to support the Africa Incubator

WikiAfrica is pleased to invite you as a self-declared African Wikipedian to evaluate the Africa Incubator. WikiAfrica has created the Africa Incubator to support and assist new authors, as they create their first articles and learn the ins and outs of contributing to Wikipedia.

The Africa Incubator is a ‘soft landing’ for new authors to develop articles that relate to Africa. It assists them in becoming compliant and knowledgeable of Wikipedia principles and rules. Based within the Wikipedia framework, the Africa Incubator is fully interactive and enables feedback, assistance and forums.

This is where we need your help! For the Africa Incubator to be successful, it needs the intervention, interaction and experience of Incubator Mentors. We are looking for a pool of active experienced Wikipedians to consistently participate in ’owning’ the Africa Incubator. Incubator Mentors will assist new comers through the editing process. They will also help test and expand the Africa Incubator, and will play a vital role in encouraging newcomers to be Wikipedians for life

Please visit WikiAfrica Incubator to give us your honest feedback and evaluation. WikiAfrica is a ground-breaking project that is designed to Africanise Wikipedia by generating and expanding 30,000 articles over two years. Find out more about this project here WikiAfrica. To get involved, contact Francis [wikipedian@wikiafrica.net] Twitter: twitter.com/#!/wikiafrica Facebook: www.facebook.com/WikiAfrica

2013 AFCON squads[edit]

Something existing elsewhere on Wikipedia is not an argument for including it, per WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS. These kind of tables violate WP:OR. GiantSnowman 18:38, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

There are no "rules" - merely my opinion. But I suggest you read WP:OR (and WP:NOTSTATS). GiantSnowman 19:11, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
