Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Deadose, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages San Gabriel River and Kichai (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Was Voltaire wrong about William Penn's 1683 treaty with the Lenape Indians?
Hi! In case you are interested, there is a discussion here about William Penn's 1683 treaty with the Lenape Indians, and specifically whether Voltaire's famous quote ("...a treaty never written, never broken") from his 1764 Dictionnaire philosophique was incorrect. If you have time, your input would be appreciated. Thanks! --Guy Macon (talk) 11:37, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Pertaining to the Nomlaki article. The two people of note are not Paskanta. That's all I am making sure of. That they do not get affiliated with Paskanta. LunchboxCFD
If you're going to make accusations, back them up. You speak of a "frenzy" of moving articles. Which articles? I mentioned two of them, and gave my reasons; are there any others you mean? — kwami (talk) 21:38, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
That doesn't answer the question. I could say you should be banned because [this]. Presumably whatever I have a problem with is in there somewhere, but how are you supposed to know where? How am I supposed to respond if you won't say what the problem is? The list you link to is full of redirect creation, spelling corrections, punctuation corrections, etc. In the past month, precisely three moves have been challenged: One (Halkomelem) where per BOLD I reverted an undiscussed move by Skookum, and then reverted again; one (Parnkalla), where I rejected the idea that "Parnkala" was the language and "Parnkalla" the people (or something equally spurious), and the original mover accepted my correction; and one (Bosnian pyramids) where everyone agreed the article needed to be moved, but we ended up choosing a slightly different wording. So I've committed a *single* edit-warring move in the past *month*. That requires a ban? I don't get it. You've moved articles in a disputed context, as you admit in the discussion. Should you be banned too for contributing to the problem? What are the criteria here? — kwami (talk) 18:20, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Chickamauga Wars article title
You might be interested in the discussion of a new title for Chickamauga Wars (1776-1794). You have contributed to the article in the past. Your thoughts would be appreciated at Talk:Chickamauga Wars (1776–94)#Requested move. — ℜob C. alias ALAROB 20:53, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Isleta Pueblo wikithon
Saw your name on my watchlist - does this mean you have returned to WP? Hope so. This is incredibly late notice for you, but we are doing a wikithon on Native literatures tomorrow (Thursday 12th) at Isleta Pueblo. I presume there's no way that you could attend, but I would very much welcome any and all suggestions you might want to make to improve the project page for the event, or suggest other articles that should be worked on.

Osiyo! Would you take a look at Cherokee Wikipedia?
ᎣᏏᏲ! Updated a few pages today with material from the Cherokee Phoenix, and discovered a batch of recently added one-word articles about stars and planetary moons. Are these articles legitimate? --Djembayz (talk) 03:00, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

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.

WikiConference - Indigenous People's Day Programming
Hi Uyvsdi - I am reaching out to you because I am helping to plan and organize Indigenous Peoples' Day programming during WikiConference 2016 and I think your feedback about our direction would be very valuable. If you are interested, perhaps I can share our vision and what we have planned to date? Input during the conference from Wikipedia users who focus on these projects and adding this content is also an important piece of this. Thanks! Kellyjeanne9 (talk) 21:17, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite
Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant!♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:56, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
