Sorry about that, stubs won't be deleted if they're accidentally not marked as stubs, but there wasn't any context to "Named after Cornelius S. Hurlbut, Jr. (1906-2005)." What was named after him? A fruit? A building? A mineral? It fit Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion. A good solution, I find, is to keep external links saved in your userpage or a subpage before the article is created, if you've found the links but don't have time at the moment to write the article. Anyway, the links were: http://www.webmineral.com/data/Hurlbutite.shtml Hurlbutite and http://www.gia.edu/gemsandgemology/620/24039/this_weeks_news_details.cfm C. S. Hurlbut.

Survey Invitation[edit]

Hi there, I am a research student from the National University of Singapore and I wish to invite you to do an online survey about Wikipedia. To compensate you for your time, I am offering a reward of USD$10, either to you or as a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation. For more information, please go to the research home page. Thank you. --WikiInquirer 09:16, 16 March 2007 (UTC)talk to me

Re: Devanagari to IAST[edit]

Hi sorry but I don't know of any program that converts Devanagari into IAST. But I think User:Dbachmann may know of a program. He is an expert in the fields of Indology and historical linguistics. Regards, GizzaDiscuss © 11:20, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Wow thanks, that was a fruitful suggestion. Dbachmann gave me an informative answer, then Shreevatsa noticed my query and provided a rather nice tool that he happened to have written. Ask and you shall receive, fast! :-) --Kai Carver (talk) 09:22, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

Sherbrooke War Memorial[edit]

Thank you for improving the article Sherbrooke War Memorial. It's way better! And OMG... I tought "cod" means "call of duty" (not fish), thanks for correcting this! --Grafik.muzik (talk) 13:16, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

OMC...? ;-) You're welcome!
By the way the differences between the French and the English in that inscription are interesting
Épitaphe du cénotaphe de Sherbrooke.jpg
The French honors the survivors too, mentions sons but not daughters, and omits both country and god.

TRS-80 proposed split[edit]

Hi there,

I notice that you recently contributed to the TRS-80 article and wondered if you were interested in adding your opinion to the discussion on the proposed article split. If you have no strong opinion either way, or don't wish to contribute, please feel free to ignore this message. Thank you for your time. Ubcule (talk) 16:08, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Ways to improve Peak Scientific Instruments Ltd[edit]

Hi, my first page was deleted for spam.

I am not trying to sell anything or enhance SEO just wanted to create a page.

Is it just a case of not having enough relevant citations for the page? I was having some difficulty citing properly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brp18 (talkcontribs) 12:51, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. I will try again, I see there is a draft page submission so I will try along this route with relevant links and hopefully 2nd time will be the charm. Brp18 (talk) 13:33, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Kaicarver ,

The Wikipedia Asian Month will begin in less than an hours, and once again, thank you for signing up! Let's help the world know more about Asia! Below are a few reminders for you:

  1. Please check out the rules here. Some rules have been adjusted—the most important being that on the English Wikipedia, stubs may be expanded with some limitations.
  2. Do take the time to read the Q&A if you have any questions, or ask on the talk page.
  3. The list of participants has been alphabetized so you can more easily find your name and report your contributions.
  4. There is a template that you can use on your user page. {{Template:User Asian Month‎}}

Enjoy the Wikipedia Asian Month :) --AddisWang (talk)

Invitation from Wikipedia Asian Month 2016[edit]

Thanks for partipating Wikipedia Asian Month last year, and I hope you enjoy it. Last year, more than 7,000 articles contribute to Wikipedia in 43 languages in Wikipedia Asian Month, making us one of the largest event on Wikipedia. We will organize this event again in upcoming November, and would like to invite you join us again.

This year, we are lowering down the standards that you only need to create 4 (Four) articles to receive a postcard (new design), and articles only need to be more than 3,000 bytes and 300 words. We are also improving our postcard sending process, e.g. making the postcards right now, and collecting the address after the event ends without waiting other languges.

Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors". We will send you both digital copy, and a paper copy of the Ambassador certificate.

Thank you for considering! --AddisWang (talk)

Welcome to Wikipedia Asian Month![edit]

Hi there! Wikipedia Asian Month is about to start. Here is some information about participating in the event:

  1. Please submit your articles via this tool. Click 'log in' at the top-right and OAuth will take care the rest. You can also change the interface language at the top-right.
  2. Once you submit an article, the tool will add a template to the article and mark it as needing review by an organizer. You can check your progress using the tool, which includes how many accepted articles you have.
  3. Participants who achieve 4 accepted articles will receive a Wikipedia Asian Month postcard. You will receive another special postcard if you achieve 15 accepted articles. The Wikipedian with the highest number of accepted articles on the English Wikipedia will be honored as a "Wikipedia Asian Ambassador", and will receive a signed certificate and additional postcard.
  4. If you have any problems accessing or using the tool, you can submit your articles at this page next to your username.
  5. If you have any question, you can take a look at our Q&A or post on the WAM talk page.

Best Wishes, Addis Wang

Wikipedia Asian Month 2017: Invitation to Participate[edit]

Sun Wiki.svg

Hello! Last year, you signed up to participate in Wikipedia Asian Month (WAM) 2016 on the English Wikipedia. The event was an international success, with hundreds of editors creating thousands of articles on Asian topics across dozens of different language versions of Wikipedia.

I'd like to invite you to join us for Wikipedia Asian Month 2017, which once again lasts through the month of November. The goal is for users to create new articles on Asian-related content, each at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words in length. Editors who create at least four articles will receive a Wikipedia Asian Month postcard!

Also be sure to check out the Wikipedia Asian Art Month affiliate event - creating articles on Asian art topics can get you a Metropolitan Museum of Art postcard!

If you're interested, please sign up here for the English Wikipedia. If you are interested in also working on other language editions of Wikipedia, please visit the meta page to see other participating projects. If you have any questions, please visit our talk page.

Thank you!
