WikiAssignment 5[edit]

Hi Jeremy, would you be willing to swap review articles with me? I was out of town at a conference and all the other review spots seem to be filled. So, you would review my writing on the cottontop tamarin for me, and I could work on Common side-blotched lizard. Please let me know if this works, since I have no other articles to review for class!

Disambiguation link notification for November 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. 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.

Your GA nomination of Algonquin Provincial Park[edit]

The article Algonquin Provincial Park you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol unsupport vote.svg; see Talk:Algonquin Provincial Park for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article. Finetooth (talk) 02:51, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Polistes exclamans on hold for GA[edit]

Hey User:Jeremy.winkler, the Polistes exclamans article that you started for class, I peer-reviewed and subsequently nominated for GA has been reviewed and put on hold. There are a bunch of great suggestions/comments by Choess, but many to get through. Check here: Talk:Polistes exclamans#GA Review. Want to work on this in tandem when you start getting the chance? It would be great to get this article refined and up through to GA status. We can talk about this in class on Tuesday if you'd like. Nsavalia23 (talk) 21:00, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Synalpheus regalis GA nomination[edit]

I have begun review of the Synalpheus regalis article. There are a few points which need addressing before I continue the review. Thanks —Andrewstalk 06:21, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Wash U GA nomination[edit]

I reviewed Washington University in St. Louis's article for potential Good Article status, and I'm sorry to say it's not ready for listing at this time, mostly due to uncited material. You can see details on the review page. Thanks for your editing, and good luck with further revisions of this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 21:38, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of The Winkler Theory[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as The Winkler Theory, is not in accordance with our policies. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. The page has been nominated for deletion, in accordance with Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion.

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 "Click here to 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. Dawn Bard (talk) 20:35, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

  • As reviewing administrator I have declined this speedy deletion nomination, because I accept that it is not a joke or an attempted deception; but it is still not suitable for Wikipedia, and so I have proposed it for deletion: formal notice below. The reason is that an encyclopedia is not a place to publish new and original ideas. This is explained in Wikipedia is not for things made up one day, which is written mainly for people who have invented a joke religion or a new word, but the arguments presented are still applicable and will provide a useful explanation of several of Wikipedia's principles. The fundamental reason why this is not suitable is the policy Wikipedia:No original research, which includes: "If no reliable third-party sources can be found on a topic, Wikipedia should not have an article about it. If you discover something new, Wikipedia is not the place to announce such a discovery" and "Do not combine material from multiple sources to reach or imply a conclusion not explicitly stated by any of the sources."

Proposed deletion of The Winkler Theory[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Winkler Theory has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not for publishing original theories.

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.

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most geography, wildlife and women articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 55 African countries, so should be enjoyable! Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African wildlife articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance. If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing any article related to a topic you often work on, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Might be a good way to work on fleshing out articles you've long been meaning to target and get rewarded for it! Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:55, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
