Virgin Islands Creole list[edit]

I noticed that you've restored a list that I removed but you don't seem to have justified the reversion. Perhaps you could elaborate on your motivations. Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 21:11, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, to be fair I should have simply parsed the list down rather than delete it outright. I noticed that you created List of Virgin Islands Creole phrases but Wikipedia is not a place for indiscriminate lists. I think we should put the list back in the original article (that is, merge the two) and make the list much smaller. Preferably items that are more unique, exotic, or interesting (I know this is subjective, but "dat" for "that" and "I's" for "I am" are not noteworthy lexical examples by any account). Also, I went to Jstor to see if I couldn't find resources on lexical items and it seems that there's a dictionary
Valls, Lito. 1981. What a Pistarkle: a Dictionary of Virgin Islands English Creole. Cruz Bay, VI: Prestige Press.
If you can get ahold of this, then that would substantiate a number of examples (although, admitedly, not necessarily any phrases). Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 20:10, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

List of Virgin Islands Creole phrases[edit]


A proposed deletion template has been added to the article List of Virgin Islands Creole phrases, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest 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. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. 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. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of the page.

Public holidays in the US Virgin Islands[edit]

Hi, I am just wondering why you removed my addition of holidays to the Public holidays in the United States Virgin Islands page. All three days were properly sourced from reputable publications. If I made a mistake somehow (since someone who lives in the USVI probably knows better than I do), please let me know. Thanks! Stainedglasscurtain (talk) 22:06, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Collaboration for your alma mater[edit]

Brown University has been a recurring candidate for the Universities Collaboration of the Month but it has been short the votes necessary to win on several occasions. If you'd like to see a concerted effort to improve the article on your alma mater, please drop by the collaboration page to cast your vote. Also feel free to help improve our current collaborations during their last few days. Cheers! -Mabeenot (talk) 22:19, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Saint Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands[edit]

I hav reverted your edit to that page given that you have removed referenced material without explanation. I'd kindly ask that if you are going to reinstate this removal, please explain it. Thank you. (talk) 00:33, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi Vgmaster,

Do you maybe have a reference for this change? If there really is scheduled service from Dominica-Canefield again, all mentions of Dominica should be disambiguated on other pages.

Greetings, Gertjan R 13:21, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

No reference, but I had a recent conversation with the airline CEO and pilot, and he said he flies regularly scheduled service from STX to DCF twice a week.Vgmaster (talk) 23:11, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! Greetings, Gertjan R 08:52, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

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.

I'm trying to WP:VERIFY the edits you've just made: [1][2] with regards to USVI being an observer in CARICOM. Do you have any links to support this? I haven't been able to come up with anything. TDL (talk) 00:47, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Caribbean Community, but we cannot accept original research. Original research refers to material—such as facts, allegations, ideas, and personal experiences—for which no reliable, published sources exist; it also encompasses combining published sources in a way to imply something that none of them explicitly say. Please be prepared to cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. TDL (talk) 02:50, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

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)
