Abdeslam Serghini[edit]

Hi Peter. I am writing regarding the discussion on this page I am the author of the article and I put some comments on the talk tab of that page, but no editor is responding or willing to discuss the matter further with me. I don't even know if the editors saw my comments on the talk tab. Also, I am not sure either that this is the right way of contacting you (editors don't have a visible email or clear way of how to contact them, and please ignore my ignorance on the wikipedia subject and how it works). I agree with you that the article is very badly written and I also agree with you that it should be edited and corrected and not deleted. Some of the editors keep arguing that Abdeslam Serghini may not be notable (famous). I am from Morocco, and I am an expert on the "Sufism" field and I know all the past great scholars in Morocco. I know 100% that he was a great scholar. He taught the grand-father of the current Moroccan King. The royal family in Morocco know about him. Notability is not an issue. The editor CoffeeWithMarkets even go further by saying notability is not inherited. What CoffeeWithMarkets does not know is that those influential figures in Morocco, most of them were the student of Abdesslam Serhini, and it was the professor who taught them the activism and the one who initiated the movement in the first place. The reason the students were more famous later and more mentioned on the Internet than their professor, that is a different story, which I can explain in a different place (not here). Concerning the non-relevant (or bad) references I included in the article (some of them were mirrored by other sites, which I did not know) is because one editor told me that only English and French references can be included. I could not find any good source in English or French to include. There are however a great number of sources in Arabic, but I was not allowed to include them. I also mentioned in my comments that I have the book of Abdesslam Serghini (one of his many lectures was recorded and published as book. The book includes a detailed official biography). I am willing to upload the book, and collaborate in anyway needed to make the article well written. However, and very unfortunate, I am not hearing anything from the editors. Please advise me what to do. I have a huge respect and love for this great scholar and he deserves to be on wikipedia. I can even contact the royal family in Morocco and provide a confirmation from them that he was a very notable great scholar.

Thanks Peter. I can be notified by email at — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 19:23, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

University of Leeds accommodation[edit]

Peter You contributed to the deletion discussion last year. I have hopefully improved the article and would appreciate your comment. I am considering renaming it University of Leeds halls of residence although Nottingham uses upper case H and R? I have added to the list and included partnership buildings as there will probably be 100% privatization eventually. Keomike (talk) 17:33, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

The Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pantacles of Athens discussion has closed as a consensus "merge."

History of blast furnace iron production in Great Britain and in RF[edit]

Hello. I do not know if it is interesting to you but there are two articles — History of blast furnace iron production in Russian Federation and History of blast furnace iron production in Great Britain. You can understand the text using Googl translator. I am sorry for trouble. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 17:40, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Post Towns in the US[edit]

I wish we had this term in the U.S. because many people in rural areas identify strongly with their mailing address "city" even if they live far outside their city limits. For instance, I'm rewriting the Felton, Delaware article and 90%+ of the population who identifies as living in Felton is outside the municipal limits and that's hard to explain to an (urban) American reader.

About User:Basicdesign/sandbox[edit]

Hi, I'm an AFC reviewer, I have just declined the above-mentioned draft. I see you had previously (in February 2014) been involved with helping the draft-writer. I left a review note briefly explaining the problem. I hope you could help as it certainly looks like a worthwhile article - if the terminology problem can be resolved. I think WikiProjects such as Technology, Mining or Archaeology could also be of assistance. (Removing the "discussion" above the start of the actual article to the Talk page would help "declutter" the page. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 09:46, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Proposals re British, English, Scottish & Irish politicians by century[edit]

Please see my two proposals to create categories for English, Scottish & Irish politicians by century Discussion of 8 January 2016. Hugo999 (talk) 22:09, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

A name of the category[edit]

Hello. Wich variant for category's name is better and more correct in the English language - cooling system of blast furnace or blast furnace cooling system? I'm going to create this category in the Wikimedia Commons. Thank you. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 18:33, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

  • The latter would be perfectly acceptable, but does it really need a category? Peterkingiron (talk) 16:54, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

The name of the profession[edit]

Hello. Look, please, on the upper left corner of this picture File:The Pennsylvania railroad. What is the English name of the profession of those men who are on the top of the blast furnace and charge it? Dictionaries I have do not contain this word. How do you call a wheelbarrow on their hands? Have it a specific name or not? Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 16:38, 25 February 2016 (UTC)

  • I assume the men are filling a blast furnace. If so, I would call them "fillers". I am not sure that there is a specific name for the barrow, though I suspect that it would have a precisely defined capacity. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:53, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. But have you ever seen the name of the profession in the literature? Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 17:17, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
I will allow myself to trouble you once more. I'm a little surprised that the English language does not have a special name for this profession. Well, I think that there may be such a category name: "Blast furnace fillers", "Blast furnace chargers" or just "Fillers" or "Chargers". Which variant you choose? Please, answer my question, I'm going to create a category in Wiki commons just after your reply. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 12:32, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
I think I have seen them called fillers, but I cannot think where. A furnace would have a founder (who was the chief workman), a keeper to oversee the furnace when he was asleep and a couple of fillers. However this was not a particularly skilled occupation (certainly not a "profession"). He might bee referred to as a filler at a blast furnace. Peterkingiron (talk) 17:17, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Ok, word "fillers" is main. But wich variant is better, "Blast furnace fillers" or "Filler at a blast furnace" or "Fillers at blast furnaces"? I need your opinion as of a man who are a native-English spiker. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 22:17, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Any of these would do, buy furnace(s) should only be plural if the same man was filling several of them. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:11, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
Ok. Thank you for your answers. Blast furnace chip worker (talk) 18:02, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

3rd party opinion of experienced wikipedia user wanted[edit]

Article in question: Batn Rabigh Caravan Raid

On above article I quoted Sahih al-Bukhari, 5:57:74 . This primary source EXPLICITLY mentions Sa'd was the first to shoot an arrow for Islam,

The secondary sources in Batn Rabigh Caravan Raid also EXPLICITLY mentions Sa'd was the first to shoot an arrow for Islam.

I have been accused of violating WP:SYNTHESIS. What is your opinion, is this synthesis? --Misconceptions2 (talk) 21:29, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

  • If that is what the sources say, I do not see why WP should not repeat them. If other serious sources say something different, or deny the event, they should presumably be referred to as well, to give a NPOV. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:17, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

A new section in CFD[edit]

I started a proposal at village pump here for a new section in CFD called CFRc (Categories for recategorization) where users who like to change sub- or parent-categories, can ask the experienced community.

deletion proposal[edit]

The category was empty because Betty Logan removed all the pages tagged under the category without discussion. The user has seems to be been blocked before for moving pages without consensus.

Sahitya Akademi Award[edit]

At Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2016_April_14#Category:Writers_who_have_returned_the_Sahitya_Akademi_Award you mentioned that the subject article does not have a list of awardees. Its actually a forked list at Lists of Sahitya Akademi Award winners, which in turn has links to language-wise recipients. Just fyi... §§Dharmadhyaksha§§ {Talk / Edits} 11:37, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
