April 2013[edit]

Hi Stavros1, "Dont let the buggers get you down".

  • Sorry to see you go, you had many good articles. Regards --palmiped |  Talk  10:43, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Stavros, please don't leave. You've done some great work on Norfolk hotels. I've expanded Pikes Hotel, Ibiza, easily meets requirements. The problem is that we do have some guidelines to hotels and 2 star and low quality guesthouses rarely cut the mustard. We don't have to cover every hotel and guesthouse but cover the more notable ones. Ibiza Rocks Hotel I'm pretty sure is notable and maybe the 3-star historic hotel in Norwich also up for deletion. Don't give in, let's try to save as many as we can huh?♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 15:45, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Well, you either grow a thicker skin or deprive yourself of contributing to a website which has obviously been an enjoyable hobby for you. If you leave they beat you and you lose out. There are ways to diminish difficulties with other editors, but I agree, people usually come looking for trouble rather than vice versa. I frequently have deletions to do deal with when I shouldn't have to, but unfortunately many people here are lazy and at times clueless. There is a staggering amount missing on Norfolk listed buildings, your choice, but I'd hope you'd still want to contribute regardless and remember that some editors here like what you do. ♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 19:04, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank You. Will takes some time to think about your obsevations.  stavros1  ♣  21:09, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
This pompous editor from Vancouver is enough to make anybody storm off in a huff! So many lazy editors on wikipedia who do nothing to help improve content and don't at least try to scout for sources. Generally I try to assume good faith and try to work with people, but when they resort to pass tagging and still continuing to argue their point long after it has clearly been expanded to meet GNG I turn sour. I've expanded the Manor hotel article too. Ibiza Rocks Hotel in the town is really not my thing but the sources have proven that its clearly notable at the AFD. Not really convinced on the notability of the other 2 star hotels in Norfolk. I think you'd be best avoiding those sorts of hotels, stick to the historic hotels and inns which are notable architecturally I think.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 21:17, 9 April 2013 (UTC)


No worries, but if you do decide to stay, my advice would be to get rid of the lesser notable hotels in the Norfolk template, 2 star hotels are rarely notable unless they are listed buildings, even 3 star hotels may not be notable it depends but in my opinion do often tend to meet guidelines. 4 and 5 star are notable, stick to those first. Unfortunately hotels have a very hard time on wikipedia and even the most diverse and prolific of editors often reject them and show a disinterest in editing them. Me, I love historic and luxury hotels which have a long history/or and architecturally grand, but I admittedly feel rather different about the regular 2 star type hotels which every town has several of unless the buildings are really notable. The Leading Hotels of the World in my opinion is priority for hotel work on wikipedia, those are really notable hotels.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 06:34, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Stavros please stay. Your work is much appreciated. Other editors take a look at his Norfolk lifeboat articles. Don't let the buggars get you down. (Northmetpit (talk) 10:03, 11 April 2013 (UTC)).

Pikes Hotel, Ibiza kept, there you go.♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 18:42, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Ses Feixes Wetlands[edit]

Hi Stavros 1

your article about Ses Feixes Wetlands is great ! Might we use it for a spanish Wiki-page translating it or at least parts of it? Would you allow me ? Saludos--JanManu (talk) 10:07, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Stravos 1, that is very kind of you, letting us use your article or parts of it for a spanish and the catalan WP site. Thank you very much.--JanManu (talk) 15:30, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hi Stravos1, Welcome back we missed you.Northmetpit (talk) 10:32, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for message. Do tend to agree with your comments on unhelpful editors. It's a shame really because the majority of people on here are OK. I try not let them get at me and I will continue to use my knowledge if any in helping to compile wiki. Cheers Northmetpit (talk) 14:36, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Archaeological sites of Albufeira[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:Archaeological sites of Albufeira requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

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. —swpbT 13:44, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
