Disambiguation link notification for September 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chalosse, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Chalosse Noire. 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:08, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Fixed already by another kind editor; dab page was intended link. Should have used Chalosse noire (disambiguation). Do better next time. Moonraker12 (talk) 16:49, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations[edit]

Excellent work on the Balnabari article so far. I think that you've made enough expansion to it that it doesn't even need the new-page template anymore.--Mr Fink (talk) 18:27, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Matriculation exam (Finland)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Matriculation exam (Finland), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.entrance.examsavvy.com/2010/10/abitur-in-finland.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.)

Speedy deletion nomination of Matriculation exam (Finland)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Matriculation exam (Finland) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://www.entrance.examsavvy.com/2010/10/abitur-in-finland.html. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Copying text[edit]

Hi Moonraker12. Please remember the proper attribution guidelines as suggested at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia -- like the use of links and templates. This can help our investigation into copyvio tags -- and whether or not they are proper. I've gone ahead and added the copy template at Talk:Matriculation exam (Finland) for you. Cheers.

Bramante Staircase[edit]

Hi, I have previously edited the article about the Bramante staircase to reflect the fact that the original staircase does not seem to be a double helix version. If you have a look at any picture of the old staircase there is nothing to suggest it is in fact double helix, however there are articles on the internet suggesting it is, such as the blog entry from insight vacations referenced in the wiki. Even in the picture from this blog it looks like a spiral staircase without double helix. Instead of editing the article I would just like to ask if you have more insight in this. Regards, Erik — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.16.182.160 (talk) 09:36, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello Erik:
In answer to your question, I was guided by the previous draft of the article which said the Momo staircase was inspired by the original (and was named the Bramante stair for that reason), and from what it said on the Insight website; also that it was said to have inspired other, double helix stairs (like this one).
Whatever it might look like, the sources used are pretty categorical about it, and (as they are charging good money from people to see it) they could hardly do so for long if it wasn't, could they?
Anyway, if you have something to the contrary, (a source saying it isn't so, for example, to avoid Original Research territory, open a discussion on the page, and we can see what anyone else thinks. Happy editing, Moonraker12 (talk) 19:23, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Wilseder Berg and Good King George[edit]

Hi Moonraker, your edits were clearly in good faith and I was happy with most of them, but I just felt the construct "George IV of the United Kingdom" sounded very odd. I know it's the title of the article, but Wiki articles sometimes have odd titles for the sake of disambiguation. He would normally be called just "George IV" or "King George (IV)" if it were clear that we were in Britain, but we're not, so some sort of dab is needed and the most common by far is "of England" - about ten times more common that "of the United Kingdom" or "of Great Britain" on Google books. So if WP:COMMONNAME is the criterion it's the clear choice. But, as you say, there were no other King George IVs, so we could just go with that. HTH. Cheers. --Bermicourt (talk) 13:10, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
