Editing Wikipedia:WikiProject Israel/to do2[edit]

Hi Salome1969! Please take great care when editing the page Wikipedia:WikiProject Israel/to do2, because it could ruin the formatting for all WP Israel tags. Thanks, Ynhockey (Talk) 18:19, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Amos Ke(i)nan[edit]

Hi Salome1969! The person who contributed to that article most is User:Nudve, and you can contact him at User talk:Nudve. However, it appears that Amos Keinan is indeed the common English spelling. All sources in the Wikipedia article except one (including media like Haaretz and Ynet) use this spelling. If you can provide a sufficient amount of evidence that Kenan is the common spelling, we will gladly move the article. For more information, see WP:COMMONNAME and WP:HE. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 19:52, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi again! It is good to know that family members of notable people with articles on Wikipedia come here to edit. Even so, you must understand that Wikipedia has certain policies about verifiability, according to which we cannot take family connections as evidence. Can you name specific books that you want us to check to verify the spelling? -- Ynhockey (Talk) 20:58, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Hi. First, let me say I did not create this article, I just rewrote it recently. When I first found it, Amos Kenan did not even exist as a redirect, and I created it. I considered moving it, especially considering Kenan is the name that appears in the English translation of his books. However, as Ynhockey says above, there are many sources that use Keinan, so I decided to keep it. I'm willing to consider a move, but I think that in such borderline cases, WP:HE should probably prevail. Cheers, Nudve (talk) 21:05, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

First, some sources do spell Keinan, and not just kids. See, for example, here or here. Or, to use a different analogy, Israeli roadsigns spell Qiryat Shemona but Wikipedia spells it differently. Second, all discussions on Wikipedia are public. Third, please sign your comments using four tildes, like SineBot says. Cheers, -- Nudve (talk) 05:43, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you can contact me by e-mail at ynhockey at gmail dot com or on MSN Messenger at ynhockey at hotmail dot com. Cheers, Ynhockey (Talk) 20:18, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 22:15, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
