Just in case anyone wants to talk to me.... Peridon (talk) 20:42, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

The rest of this is archived somewhere. There's a nice little bot comes in and tidies up. (Could do with one at home...) A very kind person has organised an archive box that even has a search bar in it. (No beer, though....)

PLEASE ADD MESSAGES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE SO THAT I WILL SEE THEM. I LOOK THERE FIRST. Post at the top and you risk being missed altogether. Thanks. Do put a heading inside == == and sign with ~~~~. If you don't get a reply from me (or one of the stalkers...) within a reasonable time, you've probably not read this. If you have read it and ignored it, it's your own fault. If you haven't read it, READ IT NOW. Another reason to post at the bottom is that if you post at the top and someone else posts at the bottom, I'll see their message, but won't suspect there's another. Up to you. Ignore this if you want. Just don't blame me.

Actually, I don't like raisins, but do like grapes. Peridon (talk) 18:42, 24 January 2015 (UTC) I like this message.

Remaking Conejo[edit]

the notoriety is such that we're in a better position to judge it.

While most hip hop fans or non Californians may not have heard of the rapper, the impact is quite pronounced in the rap genre. Please do not delete. Thankyou. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nyc media research (talkcontribs) 07:22, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

your assistance please...[edit]

You deleted Runa A. Sandvik after it was tagged with A7, in 2016.

I request you graft the deleted revisions to Runa Sandvik. Geo Swan (talk) 02:17, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Hello, Geo Swan. Peridon is offline at the moment so I'll handle your request. I took a look at the old article and there was nothing in it of any use to you. I will make a note at Runa Sandvik that this current article is very different from the deleted one and is not eligible for speedy deletion via WP:G4. --MelanieN (talk) 03:10, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Oops - brain fart. It wouldn't have been eligible for G4 anyhow because it was speedy deleted, not deleted per an AfD. Oh well, I'll put the note on the article anyhow. --MelanieN (talk) 03:18, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
  • @MelanieN:, thanks for taking the time to take a look at my request.

    I think you are overlooking a factor. You wrote that the deleted versions would hold no value to me. Well, restoring the deleted versions would tell me the identity, or identities, of other contributors who were interested in Sandvik. 2016 was two years ago. If they weren't competent to write a policy compliant article then, if they were still around, they may have learned enough to be a competent contributor now. It could be worth discussing Sandvik with them.

    So, yes, I would still like to examine the deleted versions. I think we are agreed that, even if the current article could be considerably expanded, most contributors would agree it measures up to our inclusion criteria. My interpretation is that this means there is no policy basis for keeping those versions hidden from all but administrators. Geo Swan (talk) 05:11, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Geo Swan: I can certainly userfy the deleted version to you if you think it might be helpful. Here is is: User:Geo Swan/Runa A. Sandvik. If you can find something usable in it, more power to you. --MelanieN (talk) 19:54, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
@Geo Swan: @MelanieN: It looks like the page was a copyvio I'm afraid... Adam9007 (talk) 20:33, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
It has now been deleted as such by RHaworth. Adam9007 (talk) 20:40, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Interesting. Thanks, Adam. And Geo, trust me, you aren't missing much - except clear evidence of why it was considered to be advertising. MelanieN alt (talk) 23:59, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Looks like it must have been copied from her linkedin page. No wonder it looked like advertising. And you wondered about the person who wrote it, whether you might be able to get them interested in the article: they have not edited here in several years. MelanieN (talk) 00:41, 30 July 2018 (UTC)



Can you restore the Camp Gilboa Listing, or shall I build a new one?[edit]

Please let me know if the original Camp Gilboa listing can be re-activated for me to edit, or if I should create a new listing.

You deleted the Camp Gilboa listing on Sept. 9, 2014 because: (A7: Article about a company, corporation or organization, which does not indicate the importance or significance of the subject)

For the following reasons, Camp Gilboa is important/significant:

Camp Gilboa is one of six Habonim Dror North America (HDNA) camps. Three of the other six HDNA Camp Galil, Camp Gesher, and Camp Tavor have Wikipedia pages, I would like to create or (if possible) improve upon the previous Camp Gilboa listing.

Below is a partial listing of the media coverage Habonim Dror and Camp Gilboa have received in just the past few years.

Camp Gilboa and Habonim Dror North America have achieved increasing attention in the world of Jewish camps, Jewish youth groups, Zionist youth movements, progressive Judaism. For example: "The seven Habonim Dror camps, spread across North America, are pioneering a new gender-neutral form of Hebrew this summer. They hope to set an example that Hebrew-speakers worldwide might someday follow." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2016/08/11/what-does-a-gender-neutral-kid-call-themself-in-a-gendered-language/?utm_term=.57efbf381a7b

“The Habonim experience informs many of the things I’ve done in my life, whether it was to get involved in the struggle for Soviet Jewry when I was in high school and college, or whether it’s the kind of issues I take on as a public official,” said L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who attended Habonim for eight years, from the age of 10 through high school, mostly at Camp Gilboa in Southern California. http://jewishjournal.com/culture/religion/126306/

"Habonim Dror Cultivates a Sophisticated Take on Jewish Identity" https://www.thedailybeast.com/habonim-dror-cultivates-a-sophisticated-take-on-jewish-identity

"Being upfront about Israeli faults and Palestinian perspectives is better for young Jews and for Israel in the long run, said Dalit Shlapobersky, the director of another Habonim Dror camp, Gilboa, in California.

"after decades of slow decline, Camp Gilboa appears resurgent... Read more: https://forward.com/news/320827/a-socialist-camp-by-east-la-camp-gilboa-is-on-the-rise/

"In 1982, Gilboa closed down due to years of declining enrollment. But in 1995, alumni raised money and reopened the camp, purchasing the current site near Big Bear in 2011. In recent years, enrollment has increased, with around 200 campers each summer." https://www.jweekly.com/2016/01/15/hike-swim-fix-the-world-kids-mix-it-up-at-gilboa-camp/

Building Progressive Zionist Activists: Exploring the Impact of Habonim Dror, authored by Prof. Steven M. Cohen and Steven Fink describes evidence of the life-long impact that the Habonim Dror youth movement has had on its participants. The report draws upon a survey of nearly 2,000 alumni of Habonim Dror camps and other programs, ages 20 to 83. Dr. Cohen sums up the study findings. "The Habonim Dror experience often seems to exert a powerful impact upon identification with Israel long after the alumni have completed their active involvement in the movement..." http://www.hdcamps.org/



Please let me know if the original Camp Gilboa listing can be re-activated for me to edit, or if I should create a new listing.


Thank you,

emids Technologies[edit]

Hi, I created a page for emids Technologies in 2011 and you had deleted it. Can I go ahead and re-create that as we are looking at tagging it under https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_companies_based_in_Nashville,_Tennessee . Here is the link to the company's webpage http://www.emids.com. There are companies of similar size listed under the list of companies based in Nashville, Tennessee ~~arnieroy~~
