It's nice to come across other editors on Wikipedia who are actual shogi players. I think there lots ways that many of the shogi-articles already on Wikipedia can be improved and there's lots of new articles that can be added. I'm trying to do some of that myself, but it would be better if there was some kind of structure to work within where people really interested in shogi could get together and discuss shogi-related articles, etc. That's why I made a proposal to start a new Wikiproject called Wikiproject Shogi. Please check out the proposal and let me know what you think. Of course, it's Wikipedia so everybody is welcome to participate, but it would also be nice to have actual shogi players involved too for advice and suggestions. - Marchjuly (talk) 00:59, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
- I think, it's very proper idea, and I wish to start the same project in ruwiki for a long time. The only thing that stops me is that 1) in ruwiki I'm still the only editor, who regularly makes shogi articles (although there's some good help from others), 2) 1,5 yrs in wiki, but still low experience (especially zero in starting projects), 3) very bad english, not enough for writing articles and 4)big gaps, when I live offline. So, I'm ready to help this project, but there's a big need to spellcheck my contrubution, and it would be non-regular. I could help a bit with translations from jawiki and ruwiki, but not in a very big amount.Shogiru (talk) 09:12, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
- Thank you for supporting that proposal. Please don't worry about your English ability. Obviously, since it's English Wikipedia, one's English ability is somewhat important; it is, however, not the only thing that matters. Even though I'm a native English speaker, I don't consider myself to be an expert on the language. We all have our strengths and weakness, and we all make mistakes. One of the nice things about Wikipedia is that it's pretty easy to correct any mistakes that are made. - Marchjuly (talk) 04:15, 12 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Alan Baker (philosopher), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Shizuoka (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.

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Gonbad-e Qabus.JPG
A tag has been placed on File:Gonbad-e Qabus.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an image page for a missing or corrupt image or an empty image description page for a Commons-hosted image.

This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.
