Information.svg Please do not move a page to a title that is harder to follow or move it unilaterally against naming conventions or consensus, as you did to Prohibited degree of kinship. This includes making page moves while a discussion remains under way. We have some guidelines to help with deciding what title is best for a subject.

Your editing actions before proposing and during the deletion debate have been highly inappropriate. I suggest you thoroughly read Wikipedia:Guide_to_deletion#You_may_edit_the_article_during_the_discussion and all of the other advice regarding AfD ettiquette. Polargeo (talk) 14:39, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
As you point out, there is indeed a rule that you not rename an article during a deletion discussion unless you post this on the deletion discussion. However, while I technically did violate this rule, I only added parentheses to the title after I withdrew my deletion nomination, so that the discussion was effectively over. If this really caused some sort of problem for you, I am sorry. Khin2718 (talk) 19:15, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Your removal of cite-supported material I had added[edit]

I see that in this edit you removed some material I had added along with my citation of a supporting source. Please explain. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 00:25, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your contribution. It was not deleted, only moved inside the next paragraph, and supplemented:

A 1994 study found a mean excess mortality at the first cousin level of 4.4%.

Also, a 1994 study found a mean excess pre-reproductive mortality rate of 4.4%,

OK. Thanks. I missed that. I was just quickly looking for it so I could click the link to the cited source to check on something. Cheers, Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 01:18, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Cousin Marriage in the Middle East[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Cousin Marriage in the Middle East has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Reads like an essay, may be original research.

While all 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 {{dated prod}} 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 {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Davnor (talk) 20:22, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Turkish nomads and cousin marriage[edit]

Khin: I like your pages! First I had found your map of cousin marriages. You might like to like to one of my sites, Network Analysis and Ethnographic Problems, which deals with a book we did on Turkish nomad ethnography and which deals with cousin marriage, especially Father's brother's daughter marriage. 76.88.119.23 (talk) 23:35, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
