Thanks a ton for making that section. I was curious, what do you mean by: "(note that I've copied this from Jimbo's talk page)"?? Charles35 (talk) 04:06, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Notice of Dispute resolution discussion


Hello. This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard regarding a content dispute in which you may have been involved. Content disputes can hold up article development, therefore we are requesting your participation to help find a resolution. The thread is ""Breast Cancer Awareness" article and talk page".

Guide for participants

If you wish to open a DR/N filing, click the "Request dispute resolution" button below this guide or go to Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/request for an easy to follow, step by step request form.

What this noticeboard is:
  • It is an early step to resolve content disputes after talk page discussions have stalled. If it's something we can't help you with, or is too complex to resolve here, our volunteers will point you in the right direction.
What this noticeboard is not:
  • It is not a place to deal with the behavior of other editors. We deal with disputes about article content, not disputes about user conduct.
  • It is not a place to discuss disputes that are already under discussion at other dispute resolution forums.
  • It is not a substitute for the talk pages: the dispute must have been discussed extensively on a talk page (not just through edit summaries) before resorting to DRN.
  • It is not a court with judges or arbitrators that issue binding decisions: we focus on resolving disputes through consensus, compromise, and explanation of policy.
Things to remember:
  • Discussions should be civil, calm, concise, neutral, and objective. Comment only about the article's content, not the other editors. Participants who go off-topic or become uncivil may be asked to leave the discussion.
  • Let the other editors know about the discussion by posting {{subst:drn-notice}} on their user talk page.
  • Sign and date your posts with four tildes "~~~~".
  • If you ever need any help, ask one of our volunteers, who will help you as best as they can. You may also wish to read through the FAQ page located here and on the DR/N talkpage.

Please take a moment to review the simple guide and join the discussion. Thank you! EarwigBot operator / talk 20:29, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Middle name of Alex Linder

Why is the source that states his middle name is Ruedy "hardly" a reliable source? It's his own network, he mentions his name there. (talk) 06:00, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

Damietta raid articles

Hello GabrielF! A few months ago I had requested a few articles on the Sack of Damietta (853) on WP:REX, and you had volunteered to provide them, but it probably dropped your mind. You don't have to rush into it, especially during the holiday season, but could you please be so gracious as to have another look? The articles are :

  1. Kubiak, Władysław B., "The Byzantine attack on Damietta in 853 and the Egyptian Navy in the 9th Century". Byzantion 40 (1970): 45–66. ISSN 0378-2506
  2. Levi della Vida, Giorgio, "A papyrus reference to the Damietta raid of 853 A.D.". Byzantion 17 (1944–5): 212–21 ISSN 0378-2506
  3. Rémondon, Roger, "A propos de la menace byzantine sur Damiette, sous le règne de Michel III". Byzantion 23 (1953): 245–250 ISSN 0378-2506

Kubiak alone would be a great help, but if you can find all three, I'd be grateful. If, on the other hand, you cannot provide them, don't worry, I'll find another way. Thank you in advance and sorry for bothering you. A happy Christmas and New Year season to you! Constantine 12:48, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
