Ideas for vital articles (10'000)[edit]

Hello fellow vital project member, I had many ideas for additions to the vital 10'000 whilst away and busy. But thought I would ask others opinions of the almost 100 articles that came into my mind before flooding the project talk page with them. If you have time let me know which articles you like and which you dislike, I am still looking for removals as well by the way. (I listed my ideas on my own talk page, here).

requesting a favour for article sugaspott[edit]

hey how are you i was hoping i could reach out to you about the creating of or restoring the article sugaspott which was deleted some years ago

i intend to work on it and gather a general consensus of approval before publishing it

since the time it was deleted, sources that where not available to show notability have slowly emerged over the internet and i suppose i figured maybe i can request the making of the article which i have already done and now also looking for editors who may feel like they could help. Since the original articles' deletion, i came to terms with the fact that in the greater interests of the bigger picture the right thing was done, i somehow now need help to do the same thing the right way

see i thought there was nothing to lose. I have so far created a request for an article to be made and i was hoping you could assist me in making this article, editing this article, preserving and protecting this article. i appreciate that you may not have the necessary time to execute such a request but i figure it may not take you very long. i cannot make it myself as it is about me and as you will see from the following link i have already tried -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Sugaspott - and failed. when i failed for the last time prior to now, i decided that it was not necessary and that my time was better off invested in other avenues. and then in the course of time the BBC put this on their website -http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/f7fcc586-7bd3-4872-9927-620da58b6421- after i received some airplay from Tom Robinson. that page stipulates that a biography can only come from Wikipedia. Now i have this monster of bureaucracy to tackle and because they oft end up with heated exchanges and ill mannered thoughts i beg for some resolve and assistance.

I appreciate that i may not be as important as barrack obama but believe me sir i have contributed much less on a par to our society as have the following individuals, for illustration purposes only, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cokni_O%27Dire ,https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maskiri, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlord_X,

thanks

any help would be appreciated and i will be grateful for

Pre-1500 Indian rulers on the VA/Expanded list[edit]

Hi Gizza! Thank you for your input in WP:VA/E – your thoughtful and eloquent contributions have been much appreciated. I need your help with something. What I'm about to say might not be news to you, but before the 1500s we have just two rulers of India on the list: Chandragupta Maurya and Ashoka. In other words, we have nobody to represent India's political history in the 1700 years following the Ashoka's death in 232 BCE. This seems unacceptable to me, and I'd like to replace some of the less notable Western figures on the list (that's easy, there are many to choose from) with Indian ones. But my knowledge of Indian history remains extremely poor despite my attempts to read up on it.

As a start, I have made a list of eight rulers who I think might be suitable additions, and I wanted to see what you think of them before I put them up for general discussion. I wanted to add figures that were clearly vital, but I also tried to represent a range of geographic regions, ethnic and religious backgrounds, and time periods. That second consideration forced me to leave out some people I otherwise wouldn't want to, but I thought it would be impractical to start with more than eight people since I don't want to overwhelm the forum with these proposals. I'd welcome any feedback you have. I've also invited User:Redtigerxyz to join the conversation – I hope you don't mind. Thanks!

Short explanation[edit]

Hey Gizza! I've been using the dates posted at the top of the page to determine when 30 days ago is. Because August has 31 days, 30 days from Melody Lavender's post would be on 14 September, not 15 September. Nevertheless, I realize that it would be overly bureaucratic to not allow votes added shortly after 30 days—I just wanted to explain that I'm not closing things ahead of schedule!

Hinduism barnstar[edit]

Hi Girik,

I saw you created the Hinduism barnstar, but I can't find any more information about it and I'm really curious. Where did the idea for the barnstar come from, and are they widely distributed? (Basically - what makes the cut to earn a Hinduism barnstar?)

Also, are you a 'Wikimedia seward'?

Let me know, thanks!

Pageview Tool[edit]

Hey Girik! A couple days ago at the help desk, I mentioned how I might try taking a stab at making that multi-page view counter. My plan is to let users input 3-5 articles, and then display the data in a graph - either bar or line, or perhaps both. I'm also considering having the data available in table form. Is there anything else you think would be useful? Any input would be great. First time taking a jab with JavaScript, so I'll see how this goes. Thanks, ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 06:00, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Aaaaand I'm done. Launched a working version at http://tools.wmflabs.org/traffic-grapher/, if you'd like to try it out. Let me know if it works fine, and if you run into any problems. Still got some things to add or change, but that's for the future. Learned quite a bit of JavaScript from this, so that's a plus. Cheers, and have a great 2015! ~SuperHamster Talk Contribs 02:09, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

Palmyra[edit]

If you're going to add anything to an article in the future, please provide a reliable source to accompany it. Adding something without a reliable source cheapens the article and casts doubt over its authenticity. Also, please check to make sure the information is not already there. There's a whole section dedicated to ISIL moving into Palmyra so you were simply repeating yourself for no reason at all. Adding unsourced material can lead to it being deleted, such as the case here. CassiantoTalk 06:54, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for closing; CFD needs help, as a lot of the old regular crew have moved on.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:03, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Signpost exit poll[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, you recently voted in the ArbCom election. Your username, along with around 155 other usernames of your fellow Wikipedians, was randomly selected from the 2000+ Wikipedians who voted this year, with the help of one of the election-commissioners. If you are willing, could you please participate (at your option either on-wiki via userspace or off-wiki via email) in an exit poll, and answer some questions about how you decided amongst the ArbCom candidates?

  If you decide to participate in this exit poll, the statistical results will be published in the Signpost, an online newspaper with over 1000 Wikipedians among the readership. There are about twelve questions, which have alphanumerical answers; it should take you a few minutes to complete the exit poll questionnaire, and will help improve Wikipedia by giving future candidates information about what you think is important. This is only an unofficial survey, and will have no impact on your actual vote during this election, nor in any future election.

  All questions are individually optional, and this entire exit poll itself is also entirely optional, though if you choose not to participate, I would appreciate a brief reply indicating why you decided not to take part (see Question Zero). Thanks for being a Wikipedian

The questionnaire[edit]

Dear Wikipedian, please fill out these questions -- at your option via usertalk or via email, see Detailed Instructions at the end of the twelve questions -- by putting the appropriate answer in the blanks provided. If you decide not to answer a question (all questions are optional), please put the reason down: "undecided" / "private information" / "prefer not to answer" / "question is not well-posed" / "other: please specify". Although the Signpost cannot guarantee that complex answers can be processed for publication, it will help us improve future exit polls, if you give us comments about why you could not answer specific questions.

Detailed Instructions: you are welcome to answer these questions via usertalk (easiest), or via email (for a modicum of privacy).

We do promise to try hard, not to make any mistakes, in the processing and presentation of your answers. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact column-editor GamerPro64, copy-editor 75.108.94.227, or copy-editor Ryk72. Thanks for reading, and thanks for helping Wikipedia.
