Book Infobox[edit]

please note that the Preceded by/Followed by feature of the book infobox is only meant to present related works in a series, not simply the works the writer has done before/after the one discussed. Thus, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, for example, is followed by Ulysses which presents the same characters and continues Dedalus's story. Exiles, though chronologically coming between the two texts, does not relate to them otherwise and so should not be included in the infobox. Thanks. AshcroftIleum 04:48, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

As I've commented on your own Userpage, I won't fight you over the editing of Infoboxes; there's more important things to worry about in this life. But I don't agree with you. An encyclopaedia is useful in so far as it helps a reader who consults it to find out about something. If the encyclopedia requires that reader to have acquired arcane - and, in this case, fairly pointless - knowledge of its own rubric, it becomes less useful.
The way the Joyce boxes were set up before you edited them, it was possible to scroll through Joyce's work at the click of a mouse and gain a sense of the chronology of its production. That's useful, and gives Wikipedia an edge over, say, the Encyclopaedia Britannica. You might not recommend it for every author, but for Joyce - who published a grand total of seven books in his lifetime - it works well.
Your reasoning for breaking those links - that only Ulysses is technically a sequel to A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - may be correct, but it gives a misleading impression of both works. I have never heard anyone describe Ulysses as a sequel to Portrait, nor does Wikipedia itself (currently) make such a claim. I would agree that, of all Joyce's work, those two plus Pomes Penyeach and Exiles are the most directly autobiographical, in the sense that they contain characters whose lives very closely resemble Joyce's own. Nor does a Wikipedia Book Infobox itself indicate that "preceded by" and "succeeded by" refers only to sequels. An ordinary reader would assume, as I did, that in those particular boxes, the expressions were referring to the order in which Joyce produced his works.
By all means, edit as much as you like on Wikipedia pages, including this one. But in this instance, your editing has weakened Wikipedia. That's is a pity because - as I can see from some of your other contributions - that you have some talent both as a writer and an editor.

Persian literature[edit]

Hi!

Persian literature was previously a GA. However it was silent about contemporary literature. I added information about "contemporary persian literature". The section needs copyediting and also shortening. In case you are interested in the subject, I would like to ask you to help me in improving the article. Thanks alot.Sangak 16:29, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your kind helps. I watch the article closly as it is undergoing copyedits. I will recheck everything when the first round of copyediting is finished. Thank you very much. Take care. Sangak 09:30, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

PS: I am working on Abbas Kiarostami. It is now a FA candidate. It would be great if you could take a look at it and comment on it here for further improvements. Sangak Talk 16:52, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:53, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:People on sunday.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:People on sunday.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude2 (talk) 03:09, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 12[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Saigyō Hōshi, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Basho (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 11:09, 12 April 2012 (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)
