Controversial move[edit]

Without any discussion, you moved Postage stamps and postal history of Great Britain to Postage stamps and postal history of the United Kingdom that is not the common name which all the philatelic literature know the topic as. Did you even read the talk page where this was discussed previously? Please discuss on the talk page before you make such a move. ww2censor (talk) 19:53, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Apologies, I looked only briefly at the talk page. Please feel free to request a move back, I am not an expert on this subject. I'm not sure why this is controversial though as the article clearly discusses Northern Ireland. The Celestial City (talk) 20:06, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
I have reverted the page move. Favonian (talk) 20:26, 3 November 2010 (UTC)
It is the WP:COMMONNAME and the authoritative philatelic literature, dealers, societies and collectors use this naming structure even though they include Northern Ireland (and usually Ireland pre-1922). It appears to be a throw back to the early days of stamp collecting from the later part of the 19th century and has become the accepted nomenclature. Some people, who don't know the topic think it is wrong but after more than 100 years it is unlikely to change any time soon. Thanks for your understanding. ww2censor (talk) 20:35, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Peter Bossman: not a mayor yet[edit]

According to [1], the first constitutional session will be held on 12 November 2010 at 10 am. No. 6: "5.Poročilo Komisije za potrditev mandatov članov občinskega sveta in ugotovitev izvolitve župana in ugotovitev izvolitve župana Občine Piran" (translation: "The report of the Commission for the confirmation of the mandates of the members of the municipal session and the finding of the election of the mayor of the Municipality of Piran"). At that session Peter Bossman will only become mayor! --Eleassar my talk 11:45, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Civil Rights Movement[edit]

Hi, in my comment at Talk:African-American Civil Rights Movement (1955–1968)#Proposed_Move I've informally suggested Civil Rights Movement (United States, 1955–1968) (etc.) as an alternative. What do you think of that? (replying there, if you choose to reply, would be preferable to me - thanks). --Born2cycle (talk) 18:03, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Disappearance of Joanna Yeates[edit]

Because of where you live, I think you have a better perspective of the impact of the Yeates case, but you will need to demonstrate that to the other editors who have proposed deletion under WP:NOTNEWS. I left some advice on the article's talk page as well as with the originator of the article. As the deletion proposal allows a seven day window for improvement to the article, I recommend exercising patience for a few days to see if the media coverage provides additional material to reinforce notability before attempting to delete the proposal as it would likely go straight to an WP:AFD vote. KimChee (talk) 05:58, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

It appears a different editor missed my suggestion and an AfD discussion has been initiated anyway. KimChee (talk) 05:33, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank You![edit]

Treble Clef Barnstar.png The Featured Sound Main Page Proposal Voter Barnstar
I was truly humbled by the overwhelming community support for the recent proposal to place featured sounds on the main page. The proposal closed on Tuesday with 57 people in support and only 2 in opposition.

It should take a few weeks for everything to get coded and tested, and once that is done the community will be presented with a mock up to assess on aesthetic appeal.

Finally, I invite all of you to participate in the featured sounds process itself. Whether you're a performer, an uploader, or just come across a sound file you find top quality, and that meets the featured sound criteria, you can nominate it at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates. Featured sounds is also looking for people to help assess candidates (also at Wikipedia:Featured sound candidates.)

Thanks again for such a strong showing of support, and I hope to see you at featured sounds in the future.

RM alert[edit]

There's a move request discussion going on at Talk:Foreign relations of the Palestinian National Authority#Requested move, with which you were previously involved. I'd be grateful if you could contribute to the new discussion. Nightw 11:31, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

RM alert[edit]

The move request at Talk:Foreign relations of the Palestinian National Authority was closed, so we're now taking suggestions for an alternative. As you were involved in the previous discussion, I'd be grateful if you could contribute to the new one. Please lodge your support for a proposal, or make one of your own.

Completely new abortion proposal and mediation[edit]

In light of the seemingly endless disputes over their respective titles, a neutral mediator has crafted a proposal to rename the two major abortion articles (pro-life/anti-abortion movement, and pro-choice/abortion rights movement) to completely new names. The idea, which is located here, is currently open for opinions. As you have been a contributor in the past to at least one of the articles, your thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.

The hope is that, if a consensus can be reached on the article titles, the energy that has been spent debating the titles of the articles here and here can be better spent giving both articles some much needed improvement to their content. Please take some time to read the proposal and weigh in on the matter. Even if your opinion is simple indifference, that opinion would be valuable to have posted.

To avoid concerns that this notice might violate WP:CANVASS, this posting is being made to every non-anon editor who has edited either page (or either page's respective talk page) since 1 July 2010, irrespective of possible previous participation at the mediation page.

Wikipedia talk:Noticeboard for India-related topics#So called "Dominion of India"[edit]

Re. your change "Union of India → Dominion of India — I propose this article is moved back to its original title. Under the Indian Independence Act 1947 (see text), the two states which were established were the Dominion of India and the Dominion of Pakistan. "Union of India" is ambiguous as it can refer to the republic as well as the dominion." Excuse me. That is not correct. The state established under the IIA was named simply "India", not "Dominion of India". Read the Act. Its in s.1. Beyond that, even if you are unlikely to agree with me, I'd like more input at the above where I have started a disn. Its gone stale. Not enough interested editors who are bothered with details.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
