Bahá'í Faith and the Holy Spirit[edit]

Interesting idea. You have some resources to suggest? And let me introduce you to the idea of draft space in wikipedia - make your url http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Splashen/Sandbox and you have a place to work on a draft. Of course you can comment on folks talk page like I am here and ask for help.... Smkolins (talk) 11:41, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't, I'm afraid. I do know that they believe in the Holy Spirit(as many other religions do), and since there are articles about other religions' beliefs in the Holy Spirit(Christianity included), I thought that the Baha'i view should be added too.--Splashen (talk) 16:06, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Moses[edit]

re this -- can you please stop adding the category? You have done it, you have been reverted and asked to explain yourself, and you should now use the talkpage to establish why you think this category is applicable. --dab (𒁳) 22:06, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Moses was the Founding Prophet of Judaism. That's why I have added him to the Category of Founders of religions.--Splashen (talk) 22:25, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Julian T. Pinter[edit]

Hello, Splashen. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Julian T. Pinter, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks,  Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 05:56, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Julian T. Pinter for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Julian T. Pinter is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Julian T. Pinter until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. -- Blanchardb -MeMyEarsMyMouth- timed 14:58, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Minor edits and List of founders of religious traditions[edit]

Please respect the definition of "minor edit" and restrict your use of it to typographical and similar cosmetic edits which do not change the sense of meaning of the article. This is fully defined at WP:Minor edit. Furthermore I should appreciate an explanation on the talk page of your recent edits to List of founders of religious traditions While many of the changes affect my edits I think those of other editors are involved as well and are questionable. For example, "Blood right of inheritance" is not a religious 'tradition' within the meaning of the term. The notes you eliminated supply important information to help the reader avoid misunderstandings and were place there to avoid overloading the table. Thank you. Jpacobb (talk) 22:39, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your note on my talk page. My statement that you introduced Abraham and bloodright of inheritance into the list was based on the comparison between my last edit and your subsequent ones. Strictly speaking, you reintroduced Abraham along with Moses, Solomon and John the Baptist. I'll deal with some other points on the article's talk page. Jpacobb (talk) 19:08, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Information icon Hello, I'm SummerPhD. I noticed that you made a change to an article, List of tomboys in fiction, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

January 2016[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 20:46, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rishma Malik [edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Rishma Malik has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. PKT(alk) 17:51, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

What sources can I use for references?--Splashen (talk) 17:54, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Splashen - the best answer I can give you is to repeat the message above - read through reliable source for good guidelines. Rishma's LinkedIn page is not a good reference. PKT(alk) 21:25, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

I redid the references. I hope I did it to Wikipedia's approval.--Splashen (talk) 01:53, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rishma Malik[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Rishma Malik has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Still nothing here for actual independent notability and substance since it's only an IMDb-esque listing, and there's no automatic inherited notability from anything or anyone and the listed sources here are only listings, mentions and other similar. Her career shows nothing convincing for WP:ENTERTAINER and, higher yet, WP:NOT because Wikipedia is not IMDb.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Bradv 02:35, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
