Thank you for your feedback, Matthew! I did some tweaking on the Levenger Company page -- could you have another look-see when you have a chance? Many thanks!! Heather Grattan33 (talk)Grattan33Grattan33 (talk)

Guess What?

You're not doing any favors here so stop acting like you are. The pronunciation section is needed to help describe how rhyging is spoken. It's an obscure name/word. Also, stop deleting the Boston band Rhyging from being mentioned in this article. The band exists, and it's NOT falling under the category of advertising by merely mentioning it's existence. You try to come off like you're helping but you're really just erasing valuable information there to help teach the public. If you think it "won't be taken seriously" that's your own oppinion. If you're really that concerned about the 'Rhyging page', then maybe you'd like to help by doing a little research and try and add something instead. Until then, stop being a robot. Bless


String category

Can you please stop putting the megatar article under your "stick instrument"? The name itself is a violation of a tradmark you put into this article. This is the third time you do this, and the third time i tell you to stop it. This time the stick company people themselves went in and corrected it, as you can see in the history page. I advice you to change the category name into "two-handed tapping instruments" or something similiar, or it will be uselss. User:GaryOpenhill (talk) january 15th, 2009

Faculty of Sport and Tourism

Thank you very much for you help, I did my best to correct the omissions and the article looks much better now! I do have a question, as well. Would it not be better suited to leave "TIMS" in the title name, as it is the integral name of the Faculty? "Faculty of Sport and Tourism" looks somewhat generic to me. I am still struggling with where to post what, being new to all this. I hope this is the place. Anyway, thanks for your support, once again. Mladen.tomic (talk) 15:15, 12 May 2011

WCI banner.png

Hi MatthewVanitas,

The First WikiConference India is being organized in Mumbai and will take place on 18-20 November 2011.
You can see our Official website, the Facebook event and our Scholarship form.

But the activities start now with the 100 day long WikiOutreach.

As you are part of WikiProject India community we invite you to be there for conference and share your experience. Thank you for your contributions.

We look forward to see you at Mumbai on 18-20 November 2011


Hi. I appreciate your contributions to the Kodava page very much. It is true that the Kodavas were exempted from the Arms Act, but the support of some government soldiers and officers from the Kodava community shouldn't be seen as support from the entire community to the British in 1857. This could be misinterpreted by any bigot who might read the post. Infact the British on the other hand saw the small-numbered community (then numbering a few thousands) as being harmless. (source: G. Richter's book "Gazetteer of Coorg") 1857 saw great uprisings in North India. On the other hand, near Kodagu, a few Muslims took arms against the British. Government men from Kodagu, who were from the Kodava community suppressed them. In 1837 the revolutionaries were led by Guddemane Appaiah Gowda while their oppressors were led by the Coorg Dewans. But the revolt was not due to Gowdas alone nor oppossed by all Kodavas. (please see this link: It is noteworthy that there were freedom fighters from the Kodava community as well (Gandhians who preceeded C. M. Poonacha). Apologies again for having removed your text. Many thanks. Theonlynitin (talk) 14:35,18 August 2011 (UTC)

Wikimedia Stories Project


My name is Victor Grigas, and I'm a storyteller at the Wikimedia foundation. We're telling stories of Wikipedia users, editors, donors, programmers and staff to paint a picture of who uses Wikipedia - for the 2011 fundraiser.

I am in the process of planning a trip to India to gather stories from Indian Wikipedians in face-to-face interviews (possibly on video).

My primary goal is to conduct 15-20 interviews, and hopefully enough of my interviews will make compelling stories that will effectively solicit donations from the public. These stories may also be used for other communication purposes by the foundation.

I found your userpage on a list of prolific Wikipedians and thought I’d reach out to you. Prolific editing is always a good story to tell!

If you are interested in participating, please contact me via my email:

Thank you for your time!


About me: I have been a Wikipedia editor since 2005, and have a background in film, video and audio. My userpage can be found here:


Hey Matthew,

Your advice on a school article

Hello, Matthew. I see that you wrote what seems to me to be a very good attempt to help a new editor at Talk:Bandaranayake Central College - Veyangoda. That page has now been deleted, and, since the editor in question may not have read your message before the deletion, I have copied it to his/her talk page, at User talk:Manowiki123#Explanation for major edits. I trust that is OK. JamesBWatson (talk)
