Your contributed article, Anglo-Danes[edit]

Ambox notice.png

Hello, I notice that you recently created a new page, Anglo-Danes. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as yourself. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page - Danelaw. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will to continue helping improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Danelaw - you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think that the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. — ZjarriRrethues — talk 08:04, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Your message on my talk page[edit]

Hi Davido488 - sorry for the delay in responding. I'm not entirely certain what you mean by a "belligerent list", but I suspect you are talking about an information box that lists which countries/combatants were involved in a war or battle. That's not particularly an area where I personally am familiar, but a good place to inquire might be WikiProject Military History. I'm going to also post this message on my talk page and ask other editors who watch it to also make some suggestions, so you might want to "watch" that page to see if you get any helpful suggestions.

Hello there Davido thanks for dropping by. I'm glad to see you're proud of your Englishness (that kind of thinking is fortunately on the rise these day's) alas that may impede you here on Wikipedia my friend since the British far outnumber Englishmen like us on this site and that's all Wikipedia is about, numbers.

James Cook's nationality was changed a few months ago by GeorgeHi, in completely none partizan faith of course (look at his userpage!), but when I changed it back it was, of course, because I'm an English nationalist. That's what happens here I'm afraid, different rules for different people. Keep trying to find sources though but be careful about edit warring or they will try to block you. If you find quite a few good sources then feel free to drop by and I'll help since it is ridiculous what these people are doing. You'll notice these other editors never seem to question the ethnicity of Scottish or Welsh people on Wikipedia.
Also I've noticed you've run into Justin A Kuntz. He's not a very pleasant person to deal with I'm afraid.....

Kind Regards --English Bobby (talk) 16:24, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:40, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
