DYK nomination of Envisioning Asia[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Envisioning Asia at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! BlueMoonset (talk) 16:01, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Skr15081997, there was a further comment after your most recent post there; there are also several paragraphs in the article that are still uncited. Please return right away if you wish to continue pursuing this nomination. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 14:43, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
Please see new note on your DYK nomination. Yoninah (talk) 20:04, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
Skr15081997, it is important that you respond to your nomination promptly if you wish to continue pursuing it. I hope we hear from you soon. BlueMoonset (talk) 02:24, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

MP categories[edit]

Why are you adding the parent category Category:21st-century British politicians to articles which have the category Category:UK MPs 2015–17? Is there any policy, or has there been any discussion, to support what looks like over-categorisation? Or have I missed something? PamD 07:49, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

@PamD: This isn't over-categorisation, all those MPs are indeed properly categorised. There's no harm in categorising them by century. For instance, see Category:20th-century American politicians. --Skr15081997 (talk) 07:53, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
But as Category:UK MPs 2015–17 is a child category of Category:21st-century British politicians, as I understand it this goes against "if a page belongs to a subcategory of C (or a subcategory of a subcategory of C, and so on) then it is not normally placed directly into C.", at Wikipedia:Categorization#Categorizing_pages. Why do you think this should be an exception? We could just as well also put them into Category:21st-century British people or Category:British politicians, but we don't. PamD 08:11, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
@PamD:, I see no harm in categorising politician articles by century and if the article has the Category:21st-century British politicians then Category:21st-century British people and Category:British politicians are not needed since both the "British politician" and 21st-century British people" have been included in Category:21st-century British politicians. --Skr15081997 (talk) 08:40, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
Agree with PamD (talk · contribs) - unless this has been previously agreed elsewhere, this goes against categorisation guidlines. Optimist on the run (talk) 09:20, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
I agree too. Can you undo this please? DrKay (talk) 15:51, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Skr, this clearly contravenes the long-established guidance at WP:SUBCAT. Please revert your edits; if you don't do it yourself, others will do it for you, and you risk being blocked for disruption. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 17:02, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Notice of noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard regarding over-categorisation. The thread is "Mass cat-a-lot reversion of User:Skr15081997 required". Thank you. Optimist on the run (talk) 14:58, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

WikiCup 2017 July newsletter[edit]

The third round of the competition has finished in a flurry of last minute activity, with 288 points being required to qualify for round 4. It was a hotly competitive round with all but four of the contestants exceeding the 106 points that was necessary to proceed to round 4 last year. Coemgenus and Freikorp tied on 288, and both have been allowed to proceed, so round 4 now has one pool of eight competitors and one of nine.

Round 3 saw the achievement of a 26-topic Featured topic by MPJ-DK as well as 5 featured lists and 13 featured articles. PanagiotisZois and SounderBruce achieved their first ever featured articles. Carbrera led the GA score with 10, Tachs achieved 17 DYKs and MBlaze Lightning 10 In the news items. There were 167 DYKs, 93 GARs and 82 GAs overall, this last figure being higher than the number of GAs in round 2, when twice as many people were taking part. Even though contestants performed more GARs than they achieved GAs, there was still some frustration at the length of time taken to get articles reviewed.

As we start round 4, we say goodbye to the fifteen or so competitors who didn't quite make it; thank you for the useful contributions you have made to the Cup and Wikipedia. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 3 but before the start of round 4 can be claimed in round 4. Remember too that you must claim your points within 10 days of "earning" them (some people have fallen foul of this rule and the points have been removed).

If you are concerned that your nomination, whether it be for a good article, a featured process, or anything else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. It would be helpful if this list could be cleared of any items no longer relevant. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Speedy deletion nomination of Virendra Singh (Bhadohi)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Virendra Singh (Bhadohi) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a real person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". 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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Third highest-selling[edit]

Hi there, re: this, might I please trouble you to please be more specific about the sales accomplishment? Surely it wasn't the third highest-selling album in the world, was it? If not, more specifics would be appreciated. Third highest-selling album in India? Third highest-selling Hindi-language album in India? I don't know how we can determine what the achievement was when the source fails to indicate any of that info. Unless there's another source that's clearer, it would probably be wiser to cut the content than make guesses as to what they are trying to communicate. Indian journalism fail, perhaps. Thanks and regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:00, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello Cyphoidbomb, BOI must have listed them as highest-selling in terms of sales in India, but you have a valid point; since they haven't stated any criteria explicitly I agree to your view. Thanks for pointing it out. --Skr15081997 (talk) 12:52, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
Much obliged, thank you. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:22, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Ah Toy[edit]

Hi, Skr15081997. Some time ago you mentioned that "A search for "Ah Toy" at Newspapers.com gives a good deal of results. I can create some clippings". So could I ask you to create some clippings? --Алый Король (talk) 02:46, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Алый Король, a search for "Ah Toy" at Newspapers.com does yield a good deal of results but almost all of them are for a Chinese man named Ah Toy and his court trials. I will have to dig deeper for relevant results. By the way, this article can be helpful to you. I searched Google Books and there are several relevant results. Once I find some news sources on her, I will post them at WP:RX. Regards, --Skr15081997 (talk) 11:01, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
