Hi & welcome to Wikipedia! I'm glad you are interested in Egypt and translate articles into Chinese. Opinions differ on the early kings of the 1st dynasty, and I don't have many books about Old Kingdom but Dodson & Hilton's Complete Royal Families of Ancient Egypt agrees with Wikipedia on that Hor-Aha was not the first, and the first pharaoh was Narmer or Menes (who might have been the same person, or father and son). But another book puts Narmer into the predynastic period. It really depends on whether you consider Narmer a 1st dynasty pharaoh or a predynastic one. Since he unified Egypt, maybe it wold be fair to consider him the very first pharaoh.

Ian Shaw's Oxford History is pretty good as an overview but wouldn't trust it in everything. It has some errors (for example it states that Nefertiti was co-regent with Akhenaten, while this is a theory only and several scholars don't accept it). I don't know the other two books you mentioned. – Alensha talk 18:41, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, of course. But I'm not really an expert, I'm just studying Egyptology (it's my first year at the university). There is a Wikipedia:WikiProject Ancient Egypt with more knosledgeable editors. – Alensha talk 19:53, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Heka[edit]

Hi! Yes, it should be replaced. I'm glad you noticed the error. Do you have an image that shows Heka? – Alensha talk 17:53, 18 February 2010 (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.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
