Dorit Reiss[edit]

Your change of the article's name from Dorit Rubinstein Reiss to Dorit Reiss was inappropriate. You should have discussed it with someone. Her formal name in professional circles is Dorit Rubinstein Reiss, not the truncated, and frankly unacceptable, name you used. You might have taken a bit of your time to put it on talk? The problem is that I don't know how to revert your error.

I thought one of the primary attributes of Wikipedia is that we discuss big changes. And you changed someone's name arbitrarily. Explain to me why you did this? Oh wait. I don't care. SkepticalRaptor (talk) 05:40, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, I'm willing to explain, but if you don't really care and are just here to voice your frustration, I won't bother. Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 10:08, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
I think the redirect should be the other way, as she typically identifies as Dorit Rubinstein Reiss. I can fix that for you if you want? Guy (Help!) 20:18, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Do you have evidence for that? In that case I would be fine with it, otherwise I would rather maintain the simple name. Greetings, Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 20:40, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Humanism Ireland cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Humanism Ireland cover.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 04:05, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Michael Marshall (skeptic)[edit]

Hi! Just saw that you created a page about Marsh, but I'm not entirely convinced that he's independently notable. Almost all of the sources are only mentions of him or pieces written by him, and none appear to be directly about him. I'm tempted to AfD the article but I know you've put a lot of work into it so wanted to get your thoughts on the sourcing first. Thanks, Sam Walton (talk) 10:36, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

What would convince you he is independently notable then? Two BBC radio interviews, at leat five BBC news articles, 2 in the Telegraph, 2 in the Mirror, 2 in the Daily Mail, 1 by Huffington Post UK. All of those are national news media in the UK and not written by, but about him. Are those articles all entirely about him? No, but they don't have to be: "Significant coverage is more than a trivial mention, but it need not be the main topic of the source material." He acts as a spokesperson for both the MSS and the GTS in many instances, or leads campaigns, projects and investigations. The Olivia Solon article is entirely based on Marshall's investigation, half of the Penman article as well. Others like the Damien Gayle give him quite some space to explain his opinion on the main topic of the article. Also, his Stockholm lecture is broadcast by the Swedish public broadcasting organisation. I think that's rather solid, but I'm interested to hear your opinion. I'm somewhat surprised that you would raise this question, seeing your own excellent article on the Good Thinking Society, the sources and contents of which partly overlap with Marshall's page because they're closely intertwined.

Request for Help on Sources[edit]

Hi! I've read your article Template:Ancient Syria and Mesopotamia. It is an excellent chart and may be the only territorial timeline in EN wiki. I would like to male a territorial timeline myself: could you share me the sources you used to make this timeline? Thank you!Ez zjc333 (talk) 06:01, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Hey Ez,
Thanks for the compliment. I used primarily Dutch language sources, but it shouldn't be a problem to find the same historical data in English works.
  • L. de Blois & R.J. van der Spek, Een kennismaking met de Oude Wereld (2004). Bussum: Uitgeverij Coutinho.
  • Encarta-encyclopedie Winkler Prins (1993–2002). Microsoft Corporation/Het Spectrum. (several articles)
  • Xavier Adams & Liek Mulder, Historische Atlas (1997). Baarn: Uitgeverij Nijgh Versluys.
  • Various articles on English and Dutch Wikipedia.
Note that not all dates are accurate to the same degree, and some are arbitrary to a certain extent. There is, for example, no agreement amongst historians when the Neo-Assyrian Empire began: some say around 900 BCE, others place it much later during the reign of Tiglath-Pileser III (r. 745–727 BCE). My dating of the 3 Hittite periods should also be taken with a grain of salt: it's just an approximation. Good luck! Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 14:24, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Nederlandse,
Sorry for my tardiness. Thank you for your response. The suggestion of Encarta is really great. It seems that I cannot readily get the English version of the other two books, but I will keep searching. Once again thank you very much: without you I may even don't know where to start.Ez zjc333 (talk) 09:17, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
Hi Ez,
What period and region would you like to cover? I may be able to recommend you some books or other media. Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 10:10, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.
