RoverBot[edit]

Hi there RoverBot. I am afraid that, per our username policy, your username implies this is a bot account and you will most likely have to change it. All our bots, you see, are named SomethingBot, like User:CiteBot, or User:LinkBot.

  • If you go to this page you can see about changing your username; or
  • If you don't mind loosing you two current edits, you can merely create another account - though you would need to stop using this one.

Sorry for the rough welcome! Cheers, S.G.(GH) ping! 13:15, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

No problem. Hope RoverDingbat will work!

Why thank you, that was very kind. I hope you enjoy writing here. Good luck. S.G.(GH) ping! 12:35, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

WikiProject India Tag & Assess 2012 Contest[edit]

Hello friends, we are a number of editors from WikiProject India have got together to assess the many thousands of articles under the stewardship of the project, and we'd love to have you, a fellow member, join us. These articles require assessment, that is, the addition of a WikiProject template to the talk page of an article, assessing it for quality and importance and adding a few extra parameters to it.

As of March 11, 2012, 07:00 UTC, WikiProject India has 95,998 articles under its stewardship. Of these 13,980 articles are completely unassessed (both for class and importance) and another 42,415 articles are unassessed for importance only. Accordingly, a Tag & Assess 2012 drive-cum-contest has begun from March 01, 2012 to last till May 31, 2012.

If you are new to assessment, you can learn the minimum about how to evaluate from Part One of the Assessment Guide. Part Two of the Guide will help you learn to employ the full functionality of the talk page template, should you choose to do so.

You can sign up on the Tag & Assess page. There are a number of awards to be given in recognition of your efforts. Come & join us to take part in this exciting new venture. You'll learn more about India in this way.

Disambiguation link notification for July 13[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Kavita Singh, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Punjab University (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.

Re: J. Bronkhorst[edit]

Hi RoverDingbat, thank you for your message. Sorry for the delayed replay... I'm just returning from a week off line. If I understand this correctly, Johannes Bronkhorst probably shouldn't be redirecting to Johannes van Bronckhorst, and I was about to change this but noticed there was a few articles currently making use of the existing redirect. I see that this redirect was created by User:Jane023, who may be the best person to contact to achieve a fix that satisfies everyone. I must ask though... are you happy with the article name "J. Bronkhorst", or are you looking to get it moved into the "Johannes Bronkhorst" name-space?  -- WikHead (talk) 17:20, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
