2014 elections in India
Canadian articles can use both date formats
Despite the fact that Canada is a Commonwealth country, articles related to Canada may use either format, per MOS:DATE TIES (Articles related to Canada may use either format consistently.). Thus, we use the first date format used in this article, which in this case was mdy. Thus, per WP:RETAIN (The date format chosen by the first major contributor...), there is no good reason to switch the article to dmy dates. Canuck89 (have words with me) 22:01, October 22, 2014 (UTC)

I saw your odd claim that "if they were anti-Zionist they wouldn't be in the Knesset" in a recent edit summary. There is nothing to stop an anti-Zionist parties entering the Knesset, and the anti-Zionist Balad (part of the Joint List) have held seats since 1999. Please only make edits like this if you are familiar with countries political systems. Thanks, Number 57 12:13, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
Sky full of fireworks,
November 2015 Sinjar offensive
Hey Lihaas, I would propose you withdraw your merge proposal on Talk:December 2014 Sinjar offensive#Merge because it tends to hold back the WP:In the news candidacy of the November 2015 Sinjar offensive. Regards, PanchoS (talk) 13:17, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Third GECF summit, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Al-Shabaab (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

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.

RT source on Russian Jet thingy
Please stop using the RT source. I removed it because the reference you gave had NO bibliographic information, NOR did it give any link. Feel free to add it back if you can provide enough information and/or a link for someone else to find it. Thanks --Jayron32 14:29, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Strange removal of content
Can you please explain why you removed this? Your edit summary says "rvt IP vandalism", but my edit was in no way vandalism. Actually my edit was On 20 November Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was summoned and a spokesman for the Turkish foreign ministry said the Russians “were bombing civilian Turkmen villages, not fighting terror”., yet you didn't even have the decency to notice you removed the content but not the reference. I added reliably sourced content, yet you removed it. I find that to be quite suspicious behaviour.--18.104.22.168 (talk) 06:19, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Lihaas. I saw that you removed images from the 2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown as "copyvios". However, in copyright there is a term called "fair use", which allows Wikipedia to include images which we don't have the copyright to, if the images are included for educational purposes and are not replaceable with free alternatives. As the specific images were released by their respective governments, they are uniquely informative, in a way that a user-generated replacement would not be. In addition, both maps obviously lose no potential commercial value, since they never had commercial intent in the first place, an important consideration for fair use. To be specific, the images fall squarely under point #9 of Wikipedia:Non-free content#Images, "Images that are themselves subject of commentary", as the images represent the claims of the two governments. Thue (talk) 08:23, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
- I've just re-restored the map, and concur completely with Thue's comments above. This isn't a copyright violation given that a strong fair use claim can be sustained. Nick-D (talk) 07:14, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Lihaas, given the above and your recent edits, could I suggest that you take a short break from the 2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown article? While your edits are in good faith, I think that you're getting carried away. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 11:13, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Just wanted to formally say thanks for adding content to 2015_Russian_Sukhoi_Su-24_shootdown page. The reactions from leaders of other countries that are neighbouring Turkey and also that are part of NATO, I believe is very important content to draw a more detailed picture of the relationships and political atmosphere. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hammer5000 (talk • contribs) 11:36, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed maintenance templates from Wikipedia. When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. --John (talk) 14:52, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
Please stop edit warring against talk page consensus
You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on 2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.
Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:
- Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
- Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.
If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If you engage in an edit war, you may be blocked from editing.
You've been around long enough to know that this was totally unacceptable given that there was agreement on the wording at Talk:2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown#Misleading lede and that you'd been pinged to explain your previous revert there. Edit warring against a talk page agreement without bothering to even comment in the discussion is pretty awful conduct. Nick-D (talk) 22:10, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
