Languages other than English: English is the only language in which I am fluent. Although a user talk page has been created for me in another language, I did not create or request it, only found out about it after the fact, and generally have not contributed to Wikimedia in another language (except for quoting). Unfortunately, while I wish I knew many languages, I don't. Also, I don't generally trust translation services. Please communicate in English and I will do likewise. Thank you very much.

I am not a lawyer.

Category recreation[edit]

Re Category:Wikipedia sandboxes, you can go right ahead as far as I'm concerned - I deleted some random notes that weren't an attempt at a category, just a misplaced attempt at a sandbox! BencherliteTalk 15:13, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Done, although I have no idea what you were referring to as random noncategory notes. I made an error with the new redirect but an editor fixed that, so all's well now. Thanks. Nick Levinson (talk) 16:27, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry about the second link not working. I am not sure why this happened.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:51, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
Done. Thanks. The link probably didn't work because the link included the word "DATE" instead of the date or a way of retrieving the date. Nick Levinson (talk) 16:46, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Karen Silkwood Article[edit]

Greetings Nick I just have 1 question, are you an editor of Wikipedia articles ? If not do you know of any persons that are articulate in building Wikipedia sites ? Thank you for your ear, time and patience.

Done here and answered at the next topic/section with the same title. (Please identify yourself on your posts by using four tildes ("~~~~"); on my laptop's keyboard, the tilde key is above the tab key and needs the Shift key, but if you don't have a tilde on your keyboard there's a clickable four-tilde string on the talk edit page, just below the main editing field, where it says "Sign your posts on talk pages".)

I do edit articles. Given your first question, I'm not sure what you mean by "building Wikipedia sites", which is far more complicated than editing articles and for which I don't know experts by name, although they can be found. If you don't want to build a site all the way from nothing to completion, if you're more specific about what you do want to do it'll be easier to find someone who can help with what you're looking for.

Sources in list[edit]

Re this, see WP:Source list: "Lists, whether they are embedded lists or stand-alone lists, are encyclopedic content as are paragraphs and articles, and they are equally subject to Wikipedia's content policies such as Verifiability, No original research, Neutral point of view, and others." for a sensitive topic such as this one. Every entry should have an inline reference. VQuakr (talk) 03:23, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Done here and continued at Talk:List of rape victims from modern history#propose deleting the Unreferenced tag. Please feel free to participate there. Nick Levinson (talk) 01:54, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Category:Terms for males[edit]

Category:Terms for males, which you created, has been nominated for possible deletion, merging, or renaming. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the Categories for discussion page. Thank you.

Done here. I have no strong opinion on this; treating like the female parallel is probably fine and that'll likely happen, so I don't need to weigh in. Thanks. Nick Levinson (talk) 20:35, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Nomination of List of rape victims from modern history for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article List of rape victims from modern history is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of rape victims from modern history until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Secret account 02:00, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Done here but discussion may continue at an appropriate page. Deletion occurred before I logged in and knew of this. I've since responded at the closer's talk page, per the procedure. Nick Levinson (talk) 19:14, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
