Edwin Taylor Pollock[edit]

I've just completed an article on Edwin Taylor Pollock, one of the three governors of American Samoa during that territory's Mau movement. As you contributed to that section, can you look over my work and let me know if I have any major gaps or recommend additional research material that I can draw from?

Hi JRP

I don't know how to answer your email so I am editing it, hopefully you see this response... Feel free to send me your paper. It's May now so probably it's quite late for you... In any case, best wishes

Samoan Islands[edit]

I reverted your edits to Samoan Islands dated May 7th because of major formatting issues, the bulk of it lacking explicit citations, and considerable overlap with either the Samoa and American Samoa articles or coverage of either of those topics in such depth that it might have warranted coverage there, but not in the more general topic. Because of the citation issues and the slightly astandard tone of the article, I was initially afraid that it might be a WP:COPYVIO, although I found no evidence of this upon further review. Also, I spotted a couple of lines that hint at WP:NPOV issues, such as the largely unexplained & slightly overreaching statement: The indigenous land issue is vital for all Pacific Islands and speculation such as it is the influence of these ties that will probably most determine how the Samoa Islands develop politically.

Check out WP:STYLE for the Wikipedia's style guide, and give it another shot. Also, if you'd like to draft a new version of the article without overwriting the current one with your work in progress, you may do so in a sandbox. Follow this link: User:Taulapapa/Samoan Islands to create a temporary draft on a page that's unlikely to attract any unwanted attention prior to publication. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. MrZaiustalk 12:39, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Implicit divestiture[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Implicit divestiture, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

wikipedia is not a dictionary

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Fa'afafine. Thank you. NeilN talk to me 17:51, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Actually I was re inserting information that was previously deleted. But I will put it back again with references next time. Thnx for input. I guess you're an editor and not a contributor.

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Taulapapa. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:23, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
