Disambiguation link notification for February 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cygnus OB7, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cygnus X. 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.

Proposed deletion of Tortit[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

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

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (companies) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page here in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back through WP:ECHO or by leaving a note at User talk:Piotrus. Thank you.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Turkish border killings 2018[edit]

Hello OtterAM,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Turkish border killings 2018 for deletion, because it appears to duplicate an existing Wikipedia article, Syria–Turkey border#History.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Quds Day[edit]

is covered by the 1RR. You are currently at 2 reverts. nableezy - 19:58, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

Actually zero reverts. OtterAM (talk) 19:58, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
Really? Good luck with that argument. More reverts will result in a report. nableezy - 20:31, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
I undid somebody's edit ONCE. And, that was to offer up an alternative suggestion, not a revision to a previous version. OtterAM (talk) 20:34, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
And prior to that you removed material on it being a protest against the occupation of East Jerusalem, which has previously been discussed on the talk page for example here. Every year somebody thinks that because they see this in the news that they must remove facts in an encyclopedia article they dislike. I was hoping that wouldnt happen again this year, but alas you proved me wrong. nableezy - 20:57, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

June 2018[edit]

Please do not introduce incorrect information into articles. Your edits could be interpreted as vandalism and have been reverted. If you believe the information you added was correct, please cite references or sources or discuss the changes on the article's talk page before making them again. If you would like to experiment, use the sandbox. Thank you. Mhhossein talk 05:29, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

You've got this 100% backwards. This article is an embarrassment to Wikipedia in its present state. According to your version, Quds Day is primarily a festival for Berlin Jews who hate Israel rather than a political gimmick of the extremist regime presently in control of Iran. We could have worked this out with the RfC that I started, but instead you resort to violations of the page's 1 revert rule. OtterAM (talk) 05:57, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Are you going to enhance the quality of the article by committing Original Research? You've fabricated self made materials and pushed them in the article. Don't do that again. --Mhhossein talk 17:27, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

quds day image[edit]

Hi. Do you really think it is necessary to tag the article as disputed neutrality over the picture? Youre disputing the entire articles neutrality because of the picture in the infobox? That this is being edit-warred over is kind of astounding to me, but regardless of which picture ends up being used, thats enough to put a banner questioning the entire article? nableezy - 05:24, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Nomination of Tortit for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Tortit 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/Tortit until a consensus is reached, and anyone, including you, 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. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:37, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited How to Cook in Palestine, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page British Mandate of Palestine (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

File:How To Cook In Eretz Israel.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:16, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
