Question from Germany about Montreal
Hello @Philg88:, maybe my english is not perfect to understand this phrase correctly: Montreal (Listeni/ˌmʌntriːˈɒl/); (pronounced: [mɔ̃ʁeal] ( listen)) officially Montréal in both Canadian English and French, ...  I did this.
This part I read - die offiziele (richtige) Schreibweise für Montreal ist Montréal in both Canadian English and French. Is my interpretation Ok or wrong? I am asking because of a chance in wp:de. The new text: ... offizieller Name ist auch auf Englisch "Montréal" Quelle: englisches Lemma).

- Hey Maxim, long time no hear. As far as I know the common name in English is without diacritics, i.e. "Montreal". It always appears in British newspapers and books that way. Best, Philg88 ♦talk 15:52, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
Hello. Good morning. I hope that you arew doing fine. You have to help me. Long back, I had created a new page named Kunwar Singh in 2005. I find that it was deleted to make way for another similar page name of the same person. I request you to restore the deleted page and merge both the pages to preserve history of the page - to ensure fair dealings. I do not know How it can be done. You may move the presently existing page to Babu Kunwar Singh and then restore the old page as Kunwar Singh and then merge both the pages as Kunwar Singh. Thank you. I am giving the links: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Undelete&target=Kunwar_Singh
- Hi Bhadani and thanks for the message. I don't have a lot of experience in history merges so I'll ping an expert. Perhaps Anthony Appleyard will help you. Best, Philg88 ♦talk 09:48, 5 November 2016 (UTC)
Request for deleted article on George Lakey
Hello, I was in the process of writing a Wikipedia article on George Lakey, one of, if not the, main creators of modern non-violent action theory and practice when I noticed that there had already been an article on him that had been taken down. The given reason for the removal was that it did "not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mgifford/George_Lakey
This seems odd to me, given that he is very well known in the peace and resistance movements. In fact a book trying to discredit non-violent politics, "Critique of Nonviolent Politics From Mahatma Gandhi to the Anti-Nuclear Movement" by Howard Ryan mentions George Lakey nine times in the first 40 pages.
His notability is clear to me and I hope now to you. The text of the original with its references could be of great value to me in creating a new article worthy of both George Lakey and Wikipedia, so I am requesting the original George Lakey article text. Alternatively if you consider it appropriate or, perhaps you could reinstate the original.
- @DavidsBlake: Hi there and thanks for the message. The George Lakey article was moved from the main article space to a user subpage for the simple reason that it shows no evidence of notability according to Wikipedia criteria. There are no references given and very little content so for now it has to stay where it is. If you wish to create a new version, suitably referenced, please do so and submit via the article wizard.

Thank you Philg88, If it has no references, it is probably not of much use to me. Thank you so much for looking into this, and I suspect with references a George Lakey story will be a fine addition to Wikipedia. Thanks again David Blake — Preceding unsigned comment added by DavidsBlake (talk • contribs) 15:15, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
