Thanks for informing me. It's dealt with now. BTW, reverting isn't too hard: have a look at Meta:Help:Reverting and you should be able to figure it out without too much trouble. If you want, you can practice it in the sandbox. Oh, and it's cool to see an ethnomusicologist here. I'm a music theorist, myself. OK, see you later! Heimstern Läufer 19:10, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Guido Adler[edit]

Dear Rikyu, do you think you might attempt to write some more in this article? It's an idle inquiry, but it started so well and the subject was so interesting...! And the missing years sound so fascinating. I have only a very short bit about him in my 1924 dictionary. And are you at all interested in Otto Abraham (b. 1872) the musical psychologist and collector of phonographed Japanese, Turkish and Indian melodies? I can't find a wp article for him at all, and again I have just a short notice. b/w, Eebahgum (talk) 23:51, 30 January 2008 (UTC)


Thanks for your comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Indosphere. It prompted me to look for more references on Indosphere, which might be useful as resources for the article. I've responded to your comment on the AfD page. Please take a look when you get a chance. Regards, deeptrivia (talk) 19:29, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello again, Rikyu. Abecedare and I have severely edited the Indosphere article, removing everything that was unreferenced. I does require a round of expansion, to include more references, but I am wondering if you would like to take a look to see if there is still something that needs to be chopped off. Thanks a lot for your time. Regards, deeptrivia (talk) 01:45, 12 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi, this is in response to your edit here [1]. The first edit was a map that that was missing Georgia, which was leftover vandalism from banned user User:Selma Kaufmann. The difference is subtle but can be seen here: [2] [3] The second was a political map that seemed out of place in the physical geography section. As such, I could've left a more detailed summary, however English is a second language and at times I am a little hasty with edits. Hope this explains it better.

Geek.Kon, external links[edit]

Just a heads up: external links are usually be added to the bottom of the article, in a section typically titled "External links." I moved the link you added to Geek.Kon in just this way. You can see the change I made for reference. (The other option is as citations using <ref> tags, but that wouldn't have been appropriate in this situation as it wasn't citing a particular claim. Thanks for the contribution! — Alan De Smet | Talk 22:43, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Isawa Shūji, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Meiji (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.
