Shay Laren[edit]

What are you doing? More than a dozen edits, and none of them right. Please stop. There's a "Show preview" button to prevent the need for so many unhelpful edits. Valrith (talk) 17:56, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Shay Laren (porn star)[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Shay Laren (porn star) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, 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), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay.

Speedy deletion of A 968[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on A 968, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, 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), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay.

Proposed deletion of 100 runs ODI cricket partnerships by Sri Lanka[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article 100 runs ODI cricket partnerships by Sri Lanka, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Lacks context to even identify the subject.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 15:05, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Dehiwala Zoo[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Dehiwala Zoo, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing no content to the reader. Please note that external links, "See also" section, book reference, category tag, template tag, interwiki link, rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article don't count as content. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the page and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

May 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Sri Lanka Army. When removing text, please specify a reason in the edit summary and discuss edits that are likely to be controversial on the article's talk page.

Dehiwala Zoo[edit]

First, your edits to this article are nonconstructive. Second you are replacing your edits without giving any explanation whatsoever.

"Visitors can obtain great experience" and "during this allurement moment" are not even correct English!

The other material that talks about the show schedules is promotional. Wikipedia is not a programming guide.

Your edits are nonconstructive, unexplained, incorrect, and contrary to Wiki policies. Piano non troppo (talk) 11:45, 1 August 2009 (UTC)


Proposed deletion of Livestock in Sri Lanka[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Livestock in Sri Lanka has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:NOTABILITY

While all 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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The Speedy Deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and Articles for Deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. RP459 (talk) 18:28, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I tried to clean some of this article up because I found it interesting (knowing little to nothing about Sri Lanka), but I think it could still use some more sources to ensure that it's not later removed or prodded again. CopaceticThought (talk) 06:34, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

University of Peradeniya[edit]

Please have a look here for my reply, concerning your total reversion of all my edits to the university article. - Adrian Pingstone (talk) 18:35, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Dehiwala Zoo[edit]

You have reverted my hundred or so edits to this article. You don't realise that, although the information in the article is good, your grasp of English is not, so very major editing was needed. I won't waste my time by providing examples because I provided examples after you reverted all my edits to University of Peradeniya and yet still you revert me.

If this vandalism continues I will apply for a block on you so that you canot edit Wikipedia for a period. Your contributions are valued but only if you allow others to edit your English. - Adrian Pingstone (talk) 07:54, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka[edit]

WikimediaSrilanka-Usergroup - Logo-Vertical.svg
Dear Ebaran,

Thank you for your contributions to the Wikimedia Projects. As an editor from Sri Lanka, you are warmly invited to join the official Wikimedia Community User Group Sri Lanka and to subscribe to its mailing list, Wikimedia-LK.

The user group currently includes volunteers from Wikipedia and other projects, from the English, Sinhala, and Tamil speaking communities. It is the Wikimedia-approved platform for editors from Sri Lanka to enable wider collaboration, for both online and offline projects.

With your support, we hope to organize cross-project content improvement drives as part of online projects, as well as organize in-person edit-a-thons, training sessions, photowalks, and other such activities, in the near future. The ultimate goal(s) of these initiatives is to improve the overall coverage and quality of topics relating to Sri Lanka, as well as encourage new editors to join the Wikimedia community, while simultaneously empowering and retaining our existing team of editors.

There are no mandatory obligations for members who choose join the community, other than the usual editing rules for online projects, and the friendly space policy for in-person projects. You may also (or instead) subscribe to the mailing list, where any member could initiate discussions with volunteers across projects, notify members of events and meetings, stay up to date with competitions, organize your own events, and so on.

See you on board, and Happy Editing!
