Proposed deletion of Suburban Souls[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Suburban Souls has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable book

While all constructive 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.

Pronunciation of "ə"[edit]

In view of the comment you left at User talk:Hortimech2014, you might be interested in the discussion I started at Template talk:IPAc-en#Mouseover for 'ə', suggesting that "about" is a bad example. -- Dr Greg  talk  17:16, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lauri Love[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Lauri Love has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

I see that you followed the advice at FAC and opened a peer review – only for a bot to close it immediately. I imagine that's because the closure of the FAC is not complete, and the system doesn't allow a PR to be open a the same time as a FAC. I suggest you wait a day or so, until the FAC closure is formalised, then reopen the PR. Meantime I'll start looking at the article and making notes. I'll also see if other useful eyes are prepared to chip in and help improve the article. Brianboulton (talk) 09:15, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

I have looked in at the peer review and left some comments. The article, which I much enjoyed, has the potential to become a featured article: the facts, the coverage, the sources are all there, but they need working on. Because I see potential in the article I have been pretty unsparing in my comments, but they are kindly meant, and I shall be happy to give advice or help if you ever feel in need of either. As a purely personal comment, and one to be ignored if you disagree, I find the existing referencing layout heavy going. As Brianboulton has contributed above, I take the liberty of pointing to one of his many featured articles – here – as an example of reader-friendly referencing, with four easily-distinguished sections: explanatory footnotes, citations (including web references), books cited, and further reading. Be that as it may, do let me know if I can be of use to you. Tim riley talk 12:59, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

My unexplained reversion[edit]

I fat-fingered my reversion of your edits on List of genocides by death toll and so there was no summary of my edit. I wanted to let you know that the reason I removed the entry is that, even if the numbers were true, there is no assertion of genocide in the provided reference. Even if there were it would be a hugely contentious assertion to make and so starting on the talk page would probably be the best course of action. Sorry for any confusion.
