Hello, Guaka. Welcome to Wikipedia.

A few tips for you to start going. (I'll send more if I see that I can help you :-)

  • Check out Wikipedia:Welcome, newcomers + the links in there.
  • Sign your stuff on talk pages with ~~~~ It will convert to your username + the time.
  • If puzzled, put a question on Wikipedia:Village pump, or feel free to ask me on my talk page if it's a very general question.
  • Have fun.

Thanks for your contributions. I'm having serious trouble locating fr + nl for List of company registers, since I speak only very little french and no dutch at all. If you could google into this, it'd be great. List of company registers is very important for Consumerium --Juxo 12:47 5 Jul 2003 (UTC)


Hello Guaka,
I too am Dutch and I just happen to see your contribution on VPRO. I think you should refrase some sentences to make it a bit more clear for non-Dutch people. If you don't mind I'll do it for you. And, on your personal page: maybe you want to change 'disprove' into 'disapprove' ?
For the rest - vooral doorgaan Groet, Harm 21:06 5 Jul 2003 (UTC) Toira 16:16, 31 August 2006 (UTC)


Hello Guaka, I'm afraid that my programming skills may not yet be sufficient to even attempt to extract data from Wikipedia's SQL files with Python. My programming experience consists entirely of one C programming class, and although I am trying to teach myself some stuff over the summer, I have never seen an SQL file or a Python program at work. However, keeping that in mind, I will do what I can :-) --Nelson 16:12 11 Jul 2003 (UTC)


Why did you redirect structural information theory to a page with every word in the title capitalized? Wikipedia article titles are not capitalized without reason. A lot of us keep moving such articles by newbies to pages with appropriately non-capitalized words. In the text of the article, "structural information theory" was not written in capital letters. Michael Hardy 16:51, 19 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Well, I know. But how can I easily change the title of a page? Also, I started writing it non-capitalized, and then I realized that the capitalization is not really necessary. Guaka 18:02, 19 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Guaka, thanks for adding the Wiki links into my user page, but it wasn't necessary! I know how to link to wiki articles but i left out the links because I want people to view my page (and read it all), not click off to a page about a band or a movie. No harm done :-) but if I'd wanted links I would've put them there!! Regards, --Richard Corbin 22:13, Aug 25, 2003 (UTC)


Hello. I notice you've linked several articles to filter. But filter is a disambiguation page. I've changed some of those links so that they go to electronic filter. Michael Hardy 18:55, 25 Sep 2003 (UTC)


Hi - I noticed your edit on the anti-semitism page. Since I was the one who added the bit you asked about, I thought I'd contact you about it. Looking back on what I wrote, I think I probably put too much emphasis on it, but my main source was a statement by Abraham Foxman, the director of the Anti-Defamation League: "These findings undoubtedly create the climate in which anti-Semitism flourishes and in which governments rationalize it." I was putting particular emphasis on the last part, taking this to mean that governments are merely trying to disguise/rationalize anti-semitism (presumably with arguments that it's merely political opposition to Israel). In retrospect, however, the case looks a lot weaker than I thought it was, so I have no objection to the removal of the statement (as someone has already done). (The source of the League's statements is "http://www.adl.org/PresRele/ASInt_13/4390_13.htm", just in case you'd like to read the whole thing... again, I think I overemphasised a minor part.) Thanks. - Vardion 12:35, 22 Nov 2003 (UTC)


Why I reverted[edit]

Read User talk:210.72.12.71 for why I reverted. It was done in a hurry (because the Anon made like 50 bad changes to zh: or something), hence the accident. It has nothing to do with the interlinks being the uppers or downers. They're both ugly. --Menchi (Talk)â


New pages...[edit]

Most users abandon their new pages after creating them; usually it's necessary to jump right in to correct egregious formatting errors, POV, or copyright violations, and I'm pretty bold about doing that when I'm watching Special:Newpages. Sorry if I stepped on your toes... feel free to keep what's good in my edits and ditch the rest. This is a wiki, after all :) -- Seth Ilys 02:09, 13 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Maybe you should be a bit more patient, like say 10 minutes or so ;) Guaka 13:10, 14 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the translation of Consumerium into nl. I hear consumers in nl. are quite conscientious so it's good to spread the word about this project to Dutch people. --Juxho 18:28, 27 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Learning project[edit]

Hello Guaka, since you are multilingual I thought you might be interested in this project I started for learning, up to now mainly vocabulary. It is described and discussed on my user page, if you are interested please let me know there. Get-back-world-respect 14:45, 5 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Hi Guaka, since moved pages seem to be dropping off watchlists now, I thought I should let you know that the recyclopedia talk page has moved to Talk:Recyclopedia/Delete. I've added some links to the latest available version of the article there before it was deleted. Angela. 20:44, 25 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Hello, you pledged support for the Wikimedia Commons project a while ago. You suggested you could code , along with User:Guaka and User:Eloquence. It seems, to me, to be the time to get this project off the ground and formulate a final roadplan - and start the coding for this project. Are you still interested? --[[User:OldakQuill|Oldak Quill]] 19:42, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Sesame Street[edit]

Sesame Street is up as a possible featured article. Would you mind putting your ideas in to the discussion, as you've worked on the article? See Wikipedia:Featured_article_candidates#Sesame_Street. -- user:zanimum

Wikinews vote[edit]

In case you haven't noticed, there is a vote going on about whether we should launch the Wikinews project under m:Wikinews/Vote.--Eloquence*

Wikinews demo up and running[edit]

Hi!

I'm writing to let you know that the Wikimedia Board of Trustees has approved the first stage of the Wikinews project. There's now a fully operational English demo site at demo.wikinews.org. This will be used for experimenting with various review models and basic policies before the site is launched officially in about a week. demo.wikinews.org will become the English version later.

You voted for the Wikinews project, so I'm asking for your participation now. Everything is open, nothing is final. What Wikinews will and can be depends in large part on you. There already is a global Wikinews mailing list for discussing the project. If you are interested at all, please subscribe -- coordination is of key importance. There's also an IRC channel #wikinews on irc.freenode.net. Realtime discussion can help to polish up articles.

If you're looking for something to do, check out the articles in development and articles in review. Or start a new story in the Wikinews workspace, or ignore the proposed review system - it's up to you. I hope you'll join us soon in this exciting experiment.--Eloquence* 01:59, Nov 17, 2004 (UTC)

Open Government Information Awareness[edit]

Could you please update the Open Government Information Awareness article that you started? The project appears to now be defunct, and the article consists of nothing but a quote from the old website. You could add a link to the archive of the site, but I don't know if it is worth keeping an article on the project now that it is "no longer maintained". ~leifHELO 06:09, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Unverified image[edit]

Thanks for uploading the image

I notice it currently doesn't have an image copyright tag. Could you add one to let us know its copyright status? (You can use {{gfdl}} if you release it under the GFDL, or {{fairuse}} if you claim fair use, etc.) If you don't know what any of this means, just let me know where you got the image and I'll tag it for you. Thanks, Kbh3rd 02:27, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)

N'Ko[edit]

Hi, thanks for your comment on my Talk. Good work on Bambara language — it still needs a lot of work, but so do virtually all Mande languages. I'm sort of working geographically close to them with my work on the Senufo languages (Mali/Burkina Faso/Côte d'Ivoire), so I might dig into Mande soon. It's an extremely interesting phylum.

I gather that you're Dutch — well, I'm Dutch too, as you probably can see from my username :). Je bent dus Bambara aan het leren? Groet, mark 21:00, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hoi. Ik had eigenlijk niet eens echt goed gekeken naar je username. Had ik dat gedaan, dan had ik misschien gedacht dat je uit Zuid-Afrika komt. Bambara is wel leuk. Totaal anders dan de IE taaltjes die ik tot nu spreek (m.u.v. het verwaarloosbare beetje Japans). Zit je toevallig in de buurt van Bamako? :) Oh, en nog proficiat met je administrateurschap. Ben het zelf op de Limburgse en de Bambara Wikipedia. Maar dat heeft natuurlijk niet zo'n prestige als deze bijna (of juist nu intussen al meer dan :) 500.000 pagina's tellende gigant. ;) Kanbe! G-u-a-k-@ 20:50, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hoi! Dingemanse is een Zeeuwse naam, ik kom dan ook uit Zeeland. Nee, ik zit helaas niet in de buurt van Bamako al hoop ik er zeker nog wel eens te komen. Ik spreek ook geen Bambara; wel Ewe en Swahili, omdat ik Afrikaanse Taalkunde studeer. Bedankt voor de felicitatie, ik hoop een goede admin te zijn! Groet, mark 23:41, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)

edit at PXE[edit]

hi!

Thx for some corrections at the pxe-article, but why did you take the general description of pxe out of the TOC?

Nirkus

You mean why I removed the ==About== header? :) Well, it is normal for an encyclopedic article to give an introduction. So the header is a bit redundant. After the intro comes the more detailed stuff, of which the TOC is an overview. I hope this make sense. :) Also, vielen Dank für alles was du am Artikel verbessert has! Vielleicht kannst du noch ein paar Links nach Bootfloppys oder so hinzufügen. Tschüss, G-u-a-k-@ 02:14, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Hehe! I'm done with this. :P The next project is to write a libpxe & a pxe daemon with C++ for linux/unix.. *learning :> Btw: Sprichst ja auch deutsch! *g Nirkus
Viel Spass dann! C++ ist nicht meine favorite Sprache... Ich spreche lieber Deutsch ;) G-u-a-k-@ 13:27, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Issues about school articles[edit]

In November 2003, there was a VfD debate over Sunset High School (Portland). The debate was archived under Talk:Sunset High School (Portland). What to do with the article is still being contested and has been recently re-nominated for VfD at Wikipedia:Votes for deletion/Sunset High School (Portland).

I am writing to you because you have participated in such debates before. There still does not exist a wikipedia policy (as far as i can tell) over what to do in regards to articles about specific U.S. public school. My hope is that a real consensus can come out of the debate, and a real policy can take shape. Take part if you are so willing. Kingturtle 02:42, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I'm sorry, don't feel like joining the discussion right now... G-u-a-k-@ 12:03, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

N'ko (strange comments on Unicode)[edit]

Moved to Talk:N'Ko

Guaka,

Could you please explain the meaning of these comments since it seems you wrote them ?

" In 2004 a proposition presented by the Irish delegation was approved by the working group (WG2). The Technical Unicode committees was blocked by Canada, declaring that the Kamasere accents and three old characters, "Old Ja", "Cha" and "Ra" should be removed — a decision considered political by the other WG members. "

You may email me at patrick.andries<à>xcential.com. I'm one of the Canadian members and I'm astounded by the comments hereabove...

Patrick, you shouldn't be astounded. The discussions on the Unicode-Afrique list have gone far and wide. When I was in Mali, I was interviewed for television, and one of the questions they asked me was about "the Canadian problem". The N'Ko community is bitterly opposed with Canada's opposition to the encoding of N'Ko, and rejects the technical suggestions Canada has made, in favour of the encoding as it stands. As you have been told a number of times. Evertype 06:58, 2005 Jun 24 (UTC)

eerste nl.wikimedia.org ontmoeting[edit]

ik zou iedereen graag willen uitnodigen te overwegen of zij een rol willen en/of kunnen spelen in de oprichting van een nederlandse wikimedia-organisatie. een eerste ontmoeting wordt momenteel georganiseerd, zie daarvoor hier, op de nl.wikimedia.org wiki. er zijn nog vele stappen te nemen, en meer wikianen nodig, om e.e.a. op verantwoorde wijze verder te ontwikkelen.

Bambara project[edit]

I got in touch with a friend who could help you translate those passages and is interested in the Wiktionary project generally; he's former Peace Corps and spent much of his service compiling Bambara language resources. If you'd like, you can e-mail me I'll put you in touch with each other that way (he's not a wikipedian... yet...). Thanks! --Dvyost 6 July 2005 13:16 (UTC)

Wikinews[edit]

Hi Guaka,

So what do you think of the current wikinews effort? I remember you were excited about it this time last year. Have you become a member? Would you be willing to write a little about how you perceive it, after your recent travels and its growth? Cheers, +sj + 8 July 2005 18:52 (UTC)

Bambara in IPA[edit]

Hi Guaka,

You'd posted a question on the IPA talk page.

A couple thoughts: For an orthography, of course, you only want to mark one tone (or perhaps not mark tone at all, though I expect that would be rather confusing with Bambara). In a phonetic transcription, I personally would only want to do what you have (transcribing only low tones) if I were making a theoretical claim that the low tone is phonologically marked, that a default syllable has high tone, and that a low tone is something more than the default. However, if I felt that both high and low tones were equal, in a symmetrical system, then I would want to transcribe them both explicitly.

Combining tone marks and nasalization is a pain in the ass. One possibility is to use the ogonek (ą, ę, etc.) for nasalization, which gets the nasalization diacritic out of the way of the tone diacritics, but you'll notice that it isn't supported for <o>. (Actually, it is supported by Unicode, but not by many fonts.) (The ogonek was supported in older versions of the IPA, and is still reasonably common, mostly for just this reason.)

Regardless of what you do, however, most people will not have fonts installed that will display both tone and nasalization on a single vowel. I don't know of any good solution to this. Your solution of adding a tilde for nasalization after the vowel is probably as good or better than any. But good luck trying to combine tone diacritics with /ɛ, ɔ/ reliably!

By the way, is nasalization phonemically contrastive in Bambara after nasal consonants? If not, then you don't need to indicate it, since you're giving a phonemic trascription, and that will take care of a huge fraction of the phonetic nasalization. Also, if /ɛ, e/ and /ɔ, o/ aren't distinguished after nasal consonants (as is the case for the Gbe languages, for example), then you can transcribe them <e, o> and avoid many of the problems with the tone marks.

Not sure if this answers your question. ?? --kwami 10:32, 2005 July 14 (UTC)

Pronoms/prénoms[edit]

Merci beaucoup pour cette réponse, mais il semblerait que nous nous sommes mal compris. Je cherche des prénom (c-à-d des nom propres), pas des pronoms. Il se trouve que je travaille à une histoire que j'ai situé à Bamako (pour des raisons trop complexes pour les expliquer ici). Faute de sources sur les prénoms (alors que je n'en manque pas vraiment pour le snoms de familles), J'ai dû me rabattre pour les personnages bambara (le troisième étant une fillette peule) sur des noms de sonorité appropriée, mais provenant, si mes sources sont exactes, du Yoruba.

C'est pourquoi j'apprécierais tout renseignement sur les prénoms en Bambara. Circeus 20:39, September 1, 2005 (UTC)

Ah, d'accord. :) C'est pas grave pour le Wiktionnaire, maintenant les prenoms bambaras sont tres completes. Mais, j'ai juste commence a ajouter quelques prenoms, voir fr:wikt:Catégorie:Prénoms bambaras... Guaka 07:46, 21 September 2005 (UTC)

Hitchhiking[edit]

Thanks for the link, I had absolutely no idea such a great project is going on. I have quite a h-h past and roughly half of the states I have on my user page I visited that way. I'll take a look and see if I could help. //Halibutt 15:53, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

I do not agree with this statement: ""Many current-day hitchhikers combine hitchhiking with hospitality exchange networks for many of the same reasons (cheap; social political reasons; meeting people)."" This MAY possibly apply to SOME countries in Western Europe, but certainly NOT to most if not all countries in Central Europe, all countries in the East of Europe and most if not all countries in Asia. In Eastern Europe (Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia) the share of hitchhikers in hospitality exchange networks is close to 0%. A high share of people who hitchhike there do not even have access to PC and web. The statement is too much of a generalization. Frank Verhart, 11 dec 06

Senegal Fast Food[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me. I see you speak a bit of Bambara, and I was wondering if you knew the song "Senegal Fast Food" by Amadou & Mariam. If you do, do you know if the second chorus (after the "quelle heures est il en paradis?" bit) is in Bambara, and if so (this would be too good to be true) what the words are in either English or the original language? If you can't help, don't worry! Thanks Abbyemery 17:59, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Yeah. It's Bambara. I don't recall the song perfectly. Is it something like "a be she faga"? That would be about cars killing animals and people... Cars are bad. Guaka 17:00, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

CouchSurfing wiki?[edit]

Hi Guaka, fellow CouchSurfer,

Your interests are very interesting.

I don't know if you saw the couchSurfing forum topic philosophy behind CS- changing the world?? In this posting I suggested a wiki as a possible way of continuing the discussion.

As you're into wikipedia and also couchsurfing, and considering your interests, I thought you might possibly be interested in making a comment there. Cheers. --Singkong2005 (t - c - WPID) 10:34, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi! I'll be at the CouchSurfing collective next week and will bring up this topic :) I guess you already found the Hospitality Exchange wiki on which I did some work as well. Guaka 19:26, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Trio Mocoto[edit]

Please see: WP:BAND bogdan 19:39, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Right. You need to write more than a one-sentence article, and you need to explain, in the article, why the band meets the requirements of WP:MUSIC. NawlinWiki 19:59, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I've temporarily moved the article to User:Guaka/Trio Mocoto. Please work on it there. Again, the article has to assert why the band is notable. It's not enough to say "they're a samba band", or to link to the AllMusic description. If you want to have the article so badly, you should be willing to write a description of the band, and why they are important, yourself. NawlinWiki 20:04, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

I still think that if someone wants to remove an article so badly, and actually removes it, should at least inform the person who started it. Guaka 20:48, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Maybe you should also inform the people who started the articles? Makes things clearer. Guaka 20:05, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Band vanity articles are, in fact, speedy deletion candidates. These were clogging the deletion discussions like you wouldn't believe and every one of them got blown out anyway. It was changed to a speedy criterion to speed things up. We delete these things wholesale on a daily basis. As far as contacting the folks who start them, the instructions on the edit page talk about notability and vanity. Trouble is, these same folks don't read the instructions. :) - Lucky 6.9 22:41, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
Not to mention that informing the creator every time an administrator speedies an article would greatly increase the time it would take to get through a CAT:CSD backlog. -- Steel 22:47, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

vandalism on ff@wiki[edit]

Hi Guaka,

there was some vandalism on ff@wiki where you are sysop. I reverted the vandalism by the user and reverted his page moves, too. Unfortunately, it was not possible to move every page back because he sometimes edite the redirecting pages. But you can now simply go through ff:Category:Candidates for speedy deletion and follow the eventual instruction on the pages I have proposed to be deleted, just like "delete, then move AAAAAAAAAAA to here" (and delete the obsolete redirecting pages).

Fass (onomastics)[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Fass (onomastics), by Sgeureka, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Fass (onomastics) fits the criteria for speedy deletion for the following reason:

Housekeeping - cleanup per WP:SU


To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Fass (onomastics), please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. This bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate Fass (onomastics) itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. Thanks. --Android Mouse Bot 2 11:57, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

File source problem with File:IndusTree-AmeracsSumic-45kbps.ogg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:IndusTree-AmeracsSumic-45kbps.ogg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 10:23, 25 May 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Papa November (talk) 10:23, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion(s) by adding your comments to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Impulse Tracker. Please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).

You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate.

Saving the List of ecovillages[edit]

Guaka - Although we've never crossed paths before on WP, I was disappointed to see your Deletionism sucks comment on the List of ecovillages deletion debate. If you are as your comment suggests, an inclusionist, then you should fight for the life of this article, not deride those who prefer to delete it. IMHO, the WP:NOTDIR arguments being made are invalid and I will eventually weigh-in along those lines. You should weigh-in with your position and rationale as well. But, in the interim, if you are sincerely interested in saving this article, I suggest the following:

  • 1) Expand and source the lead-in. Ecovillages are notable, so a list of them should be notable as well. Make the inclusion criteria bullet proof. Find and use 3rd party sources whereever practical.
  • 2) Instead of linking entries to external websites which give the appearance of a directory, provide multiple in-line citations that support the entry in the context of the inclusion criteria. Wikilink only those that have WP articles.
  • 3) Expand the descriptions for each entry to further enhance the understanding of the entry in the context of the inclusion criteria.
  • 4) Finally, if possible, add a few images along the right side to brighten up the page and give the reader a glimspe of what an ecovillage is all about.

I've captured some of these ideas in an essay Creating a Better List which might help you make some of these improvements. I understand this is a bit of work, but that's what inclusionists do, they work hard to improve articles and make WP a better encyclopedia. Good Luck.--Mike Cline (talk) 17:18, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up.
You might have noticed that all the recent additions to my talk page are about how people feel like removing stuff I started or wrote a couple of years ago. I've lost my interest in contributing to Wikipedia because of the petty and annoying rules and dealing with politics.
Maybe this is the consequence of having contributed a lot before many these rules started popping up. But it doesn't make it less frustrating. I took the occasion to just copy it to an inclusionist wiki and write down how I feel about deletionism. Guaka (talk) 14:31, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:26, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dandin Group[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 Dandin Group 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, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Dewayne Hendricks[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 Dewayne Hendricks 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, a group of people, an individual animal, an organization (band, club, company, etc.), web content, or an organized event, 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.

Are you an inclusionist?[edit]

Are you the same Guaka who started Deletionpedia? If so, would you say that you are an inclusionist, as the philosophy of inclusionism seems allied with the philosophy behind Deletionpedia. Vorbee (talk) 17:26, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes. Yes.
I also lost interested in Wikipedia a long time ago. Guaka (talk) 14:25, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
