Nwankwo Okoro, others[edit]

I came across this article while fixing links to disambiguation pages. A disambiguation page is used when a word can have more than one meaning. You linked both "warrant" and "chief". Are you talking about a type of warrant officer?

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 04:49, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Greetings, brotha. Thank you for getting at me about the Nri article. And thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. I know my sources are almost entirely western (I do have one good source published in Nigeria), but I believe wholeheartedly in their authenticity. Still, I welcome your edits and input in this subject. I have MUCH to learn about my fatherland (which I strongly believe would have been in Nri or close to it since the Aro and Aro mercenaries took many slaves from that region). Thank you very much for the links, too. I don't have time to check them right now but will make sure to get to them. As a side note, the reason I stick to mostly western publications is that I know the White World cannot attack them. I believe in using their own institutions against their own prejudices. That's also why I did the revert on your edit to the list of Nri rulers. But if you could lend a hand in locating a published list of kings dating back to the 11th century, I'd much appreciate it. I know that there were interrugms between the reigns of the different eze Nri, which probably account for the disparity in different lists and the time difference. Anyhow, thnx and I'll stay in touch. :) Scott Free (talk) 05:36, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Also[edit]

Thnx for the links they were great. I knew nothing about the Nsude pyramids! Thnx for the insight. I also wanted to put you onto some of my pet projects. You can tell from my userpage I'm deep into all things African specifically Atlantic African in the pre-colonial times. My biggest mark here on wiki has been the Mali Empire page. I did 90% of the research and editing on that baby and its my pride and joy. I also did most of the Oyo Empire page. I used th Nigerian book for most of that page. I hope to bring the Ashanti Empire and Oyo Empire pages up to the level I've done with the Mali Empire. But of course that requires more research. Take a look at those if you haven't already.

Akpan Okon[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Akpan Okon, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. If you plan to expand the article, you can request that administrators wait a while for you to add contextual material. To do this, affix the template {{hangon}} to the article and state your intention on the article's talk page. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this.

Ibom[edit]

I recently noticed that you created the page Ibom. This page, however, provides no real context as to where the village is located to anyone not familiar with Arochukwu. Could you please put what country it is in in the article? Thanks, ErikTheBikeMan (talk) 22:50, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Most certainly. ErikTheBikeMan (talk) 23:18, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Igbo people is a FAC[edit]

Hello LIL T,

I noticed that your edits usually revolve around the Aro people, the Igbo people, and the rest of the southeast of Nigeria, so I wanted to inform you that the Igbo people article has been nominated for Featured article status, by me, on this page. Ukabia (talk) 16:32, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

December 2009[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed content from Ikwerre.

WikiProject Igbo[edit]

Hello Lil T, it's been a while and I don't know if you're still active, but I've created a WikiProject for Igbo topics and I'm inviting you to become one of the participants. If you would like to be listed as a participant just go to Wikipedia:WikiProject_Igbo#Participants and put your user name down. You've made valuable contributions to Igbo related articles on Wikipedia and I think you should be noted as a participant. Later. Ukabia - talk 04:16, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
