Attention Birthday Committee Members![edit]

I just have a few general announcements to make to all members of the Birthday Commitee:
  • First, I will be going on a Wikibreak from June 13 to Semptember 10. I really hate being gone for that long, and have to choose someone else to run the committee for those few months. I've asked Mr. Turcotte, and he agreed to it, and knows who to ask next if he changes his mind.
  • Second, I've decided to make some membership requirements. They're pretty easy to comply to, so pretty much anyone who asks will get in. New members now need 100 edits, to have not been blocked at all over the last 3 months, and to not have been blocked for anymore than 48 hours total since joining the site.
  • Third, if you still haven't posted your birthday on the project page, please do so.
  • Fourth, if you'd like to make some new "Happy Birthday Templates," feel free to do so, but I'd like to see and approve/disapprove of all of them first. I'll probably say yes to all of them, though.
  • Fifth, the WP:BDC project page needs to be cleaned-up a little. I'll get working on that, but if anyone else has changes they want to make, feel free.
  • Finally, we need a new template to welcome new members with. If I have time, I'll do it. Please use the name "Template:Birthday Welcome" for it.

New Birthday Committee Bulletin Format[edit]

Birthday Committee Bulletin Board

I just have a few announcements.

  • A new sub-discussion page has been formed to discuss the possibility of a change to the membership requirements. I am aware that while I think that they should be raised, others feel that there shouldn't even be any. Please post your opinion on Wikipedia talk:Birthday Committee/Membership Requirements Steveo2 11:03, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Please see the BDC Talk Page for more news, including the possibility of a merger with Esperanza. Steveo2 11:19, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
  • While Steveo2 is gone, I will take his place as Current Leader. If you have any comments, ideas, or any questions feel free to contact me. Mr. Turcottetalk
  • We added a second First Edit Day Template a few weeks ago. We have also added four Happy Adminship templates in the past few days as well. Be sure to wish users a First Edit Birthday and Adminship anniversary. The users and their dates can be found on the Esperanza Calendar on the Project Page. Enjoy. Thistheman
  • Many thanks to Draicone for adding headers to our Birthday Committee pages. They look wonderful! Thistheman
  • Remember the rules for new birthday templates. You only need my approval if the template is drastically different from the ones already existing. (Just to be clear, I realize I have no right to dictate which templates you can make and keep. However, only the ones I approve will appear on the Wikipedia:Birthday Committee page.) While Steveo2 is gone you have to get my approval. Mr. Turcottetalk
  • If you'd like, you may post on this bulletin board. It's found on Template:BDC Bulletin 1. You may use it to suggest new policy changes, or anything else you think is too important to only go on the talk page. Sign all announcements that you add. Mr. Turcottetalk
  • Everyone is doing an excellent job wishing people a happy birthday and getting the word of our committee out. Thanks everyone! Mr. Turcottetalk
  • As we reach 140 members wished by committee members, I'd like to point out that we're only limited by the number of people listing their birthday on the Esparanza calendar. So shouldn't we focus on encouraging users to add their important dates, so that our 15 odd members (and any new ones, like me!) have enough work to go round? --Draicone (talk) 14:37, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Ker (king)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Ker (king) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A single king of ancient libya, unsourced, and his reign apparently only lasted 5 years. Unsourced tag has been in place for over 2 years with no sources being added

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.
