Proposed deletion of Ruth Crisp[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Ruth Crisp has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Proposed deletion per WP:N. I couldn't find any secondary sources on this individual other than the obituaries included in the article itself.

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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi, I've responded to your concerns on the DYK page. The slumping technique is not localized to telescopy and has been used in e.g. pottery for thousands of years. However, the application to telescopy is quite new, especially the technique being used on NuSTAR. Astro interest (talk) 20:37, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Sidney Pollard[edit]

Hi Msrasnw, thanks for starting the Sidney Pollard article. I have expanded the article some more by translating the German Wikipedia article here, but you might want to check a thing or two. Thanks. -- Mdd (talk) 14:23, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

THanks - I'll have a look. (Msrasnw (talk) 11:55, 17 February 2015 (UTC))

This article has issues; you can resolve them before I approve its DYK nomination. --George Ho (talk) 04:56, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I have replied on the DYK nomination page for Lilian Knowles‎ and your talk. (Msrasnw (talk) 11:54, 17 February 2015 (UTC))

Recreated article[edit]

Hi, I was looking at the articles at AfC, and I noticed that there is a draft of Santosh K. Mehrotra. It looks like it has the same problems as last time. I thought you did a good job on that article and still think the outcome should have been different. Despite my bad arguments. Anyway, it's there if you want to look at it. – Margin1522 (talk) 19:24, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Oh dear. Yes I think there will be the same problems again. I think the afd last time was unfair and some of the deleters should have been in my view more considerate. This seems a common problem those wishing to delete doing so not based on knowing the subject or evidence but as a reaction against autobiographical things. I was very disappointed with some of the contributors there and the deleting administrator. People are often reluctant to change their minds as they think it makes them look weak or something. I had a little draft of a trimmed down version but someone wanted it deleting. Anyway I don't know how to proceed. I guess the author of the draft won't engage with debates either and hasn't realised that a much terser article would have a much better chance of getting on. I think it is very funny how someone with the profile of Mehrotra doesn't get to have an article because of the self promotion/coi things and the difficulties with Indian sources. Best wishes, (Msrasnw (talk) 23:32, 8 March 2015 (UTC))

Disambiguation link notification for April 3[edit]

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

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:04, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Any particular reason for this revert? Reverts are not normally considered "minor edits", BTW. PC78 (talk) 20:02, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

No worries, thanks for letting me know. PC78 (talk) 06:38, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Removal of rollback[edit]

This type of request should go at WT:PERM. But I'm here, so I can help you... you have been accidentally hitting rollback? I'm happy to remove rollback for you but I would like to first make you aware of confirmationRollback which is a script that requires confirmation before rollback is performed. This should alleviate the accidental rollbacks. If you still wish to have rollback removed, please confirm here and I will do it for you. Best MusikAnimal talk 23:05, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Dear MusikAnimal, sorry to have bothered you and have asked in the wrong place. Yes I think it best just to remove my right to rollback. I was planning to do things which might have needed it but I think I am not so suited to that role. Thanks very much in advance (Msrasnw (talk) 23:11, 11 May 2015 (UTC))
Removed. And for the record, you bothered no one! Wish you all the best, and should you want rollback again don't hesitate to ask. MusikAnimal talk 23:17, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Louis Auguste Say[edit]

Hello. This page that you created Louis Auguste Say, is a duplicate of Louis Say. Both pages are terrible and I will try to improve Louis Say with in-line references. Since his company was named Louis Say & cie, I think we could drop the middle name, don't you think? Do we need to ask an administrator to merge the page you created with Louis Say so that there is a redirect? I have created redirect when the page did not exist, but not when it is already here. Btw, if you want to help me improve Louis Say, please feel free to do so. Please reply on my talkpage. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 00:30, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

They have now been on Wikipedia for a month an if there was more info it should be there by now.

My suggestion is that they need to have done something more in their field than be hired by a Newspaper for a controversial study.RonaldDuncan (talk)

Hi have done a bit more research on both experts, and I think that Michael Ashenden could have an article, but it needs a few more sources. e.g. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17586597 rather than your previous source linking back to the Sunday Times article you need to bring out he was on the UCI panel, and some of his other work. It may be best to refer to Robin Parisotto in a Michael Ashenden article.

Proposed deletion of Linda Bostock[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Linda Bostock has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No citation to independent sources (only something written by her co-author that barely mentions her, to establish the mere existence of her and the book series she has written with the co-author), no indication of real notability. No prestigious awards and honors listed. No journal editorships or prominent positions identified.

While all constructive 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} 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 {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.

Hubert Parry[edit]

After your recent excellent incursion chez Stanford I am emboldened to ask if you could be suborned into working on Hubert Parry's article. I had a go a few years back, and then a really excellent editor took the baton and made major improvements before the demands of real life obliged him to leave off. We are getting a lot of British composers up to FA, and it would be good if Parry could be got up to that level. Pray ponder. Quite understand if the answer is a firm No, of course, but nothing venture, nothing win. Tim riley talk 20:39, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Msrasnw. Thought I would let you know that Koos van Ellinckhuijzen has passed away.
