Minor edits[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Stone of Scone, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. Mutt Lunker (talk) 17:55, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

J. Max Davis[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of J. Max Davis, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.brookhavenpost.co/letter-brookhaven-mayor-on-his-experience-as-mayor-and-a-look-forward/30503/.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

Categorization[edit]

I notice that you are adding performers to categories related to work they have performed. Please note that it is highly discouraged per WP:PERFCAT. That is, this, this, this, etc is inappropriate.

I would also argue that, unless the person for example founded said city, people should not be categorized like this or this, etc. Instead, if such a category exists, categorize them in e.g. Category:People from Oakland, California. Nymf (talk) 11:59, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of David Wolfe (nutritionist)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on David Wolfe (nutritionist) 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 credibly 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 read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Gronk Oz (talk) 18:25, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Sacred Chocolate[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Sacred Chocolate has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

not seeing adequate sourcing, awards seem to be insignificant

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. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 01:01, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Nomination of Sacred Chocolate for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Sacred Chocolate is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sacred Chocolate until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 04:22, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Glacier2009,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether David Wolfe (nutritionist) should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/David Wolfe (nutritionist) .

Disambiguation link notification for April 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Heartland Model, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Alma. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

British Empire stub[edit]

It seems very very odd to see brit empire stubs on items that are clearly sufficiently identified as being within a particular scope of Australian topics. Australia was a member of the british commonwealth from 1901 - it seems from an Australian perspective, to attribute a sovereign state within he commonwealth as having aspects of the british empire after 1901 as a curiosity and anomaly... Is there anything that you can point to that indicates that Australian things after 1901 deserve the tag? JarrahTree 01:01, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps as an error; I was busy finding stub articles generally related to the British Empire, in which Australia played a significant role, historically. Australia fought alongside the British Empire in World War II, and had significant ties to Britain through the 1970s, if not the 1980s. Glacier2009 (talk) 18:49, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry to sound anything but conciliatory on this, when Australia was first a member of the Commonwealth in 1901, the empire was still expanding, but Australia was a component as a dominion, not implicit part of it - a typical orientation for Australian and British subjects of the importance of the Empire in entering the first world war. The Australian support for British Empire in WW II was as strong as the first world war, but by the 1950s - it was a member of the british commonwealth, at that stage the Empire was going either literally or specifically. The literature on the demise of the colonial british empire is vast, ties is one thing, being a component of an Empire is not something to tag onto australian stubs, unless you can show very very good reason. JarrahTree 00:39, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
The best way of clarifying this is that if you read British Empire, Australian colonies ceased being colonial parts of the empire, with the acheivement of nationhood in 1901. It became a dominion. The dominions of the 'Empire' are in wikipedia, in wikipedia projects of their own. Australian ties, be it legal, political or administrative do not constitute full membership of the Empire as when it was a collection of colonies. To tag any Australian articles post 1901 is missing the point of what constitutes empire topics or subjects, which in relative terms are things that relate to the London based imperial entity and its larger or broader reach. There are course weird exceptions to the rule, Australians could still go to the privy council in England as late as you say, but that did not mean we were component parts of the empire at that stage. cheers JarrahTree 00:55, 3 May 2016 (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. 08:55, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia[edit]

Thank you for making sure to attribute the source of the material when you included some text from other Wikipedia articles. While I think what you did is fairly clear, I'd like to direct your attention to the best practices approach, which will make it easier for reviewers if you find the need to do it in the future:

Please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia for the ideal way to copy material within Wikipedia.--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:43, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
