woman author[edit]

Hi WikiJedits - I saw your discussion on Wikipedia talk:No original research; I'm curious who the author is? I'd like to point out that it is important for antiracist scholarship to have access to information about racist materials ... anyway, it is my firm belief that we can talk about racism and adequately explain racism without falling afoul of various WP policies. so if you'd like a second opinion on the material let me know. --Lquilter 15:35, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

NOR Request for arbitration[edit]

Because of your participation in discussions relating to the "PSTS" model in the No original research article, I am notifying you that a request for arbitration has been opened here. I invite you to provide a statement encouraging the Arbcom to review this matter, so that we can settle it once and for all. COGDEN 00:09, 13 December 2007 (UTC)


I have answered your question and fixed the problem. STORMTRACKER 94 Go Irish! 21:10, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

RE: Sri Anirvan[edit]

Regards- Amondal (talk) 02:50, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Please do a google search with "Anirvan" "Aurobindo". You may get good references. I think, it will be good if we can provide brief summary of the books. No doubt this will be tough task. --Amondal (talk) 03:49, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Thats a great work. Yeah, Bengali fonts are displaying perfectly. It may not be possible for me to provide brief summary immediately. I will try my best to do the same. In the mean time you may also ask Dwaipayanc (who edited the article few days back) to take a look on the article. --Amondal (talk) 03:10, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Good show![edit]

Original Barnstar.png The Original Barnstar
I award the original barnstar to WikiJedits for taking initiative in blueing a red link and thus, creating his first non-stub article, Sri Anirvan, which, without doubt would be followed by many more substantial contributions. --Gurubrahma (talk) 06:54, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Sri Anirvan[edit]

I'd be including content from the Banglapedia link and cleaning up the article a bit. Keep up the good work. --Gurubrahma (talk) 06:54, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Times Online[edit]

Thank you SO much for all your help with the Times archive; without your help I'd still be chasing randomly around the internet. When I tried again, the Times site was working (must have been a fault earlier) and I was able to register and view those pages. The 18th had just what I was looking for: copy from a French paper, followed by their own comments, including "it is affirmed that there was on the 10th a bloody battle between Lord Wellington and Marshal Soult." The earlier papers referred only to Wellington's movements prior to the battle, so this seems to be the first reference. That Times site is BRILLIANT and I (like you) am so excited to have found it. Thank you (again). Gwinva (talk) 02:00, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Angelina Napolitano[edit]

Hi there! The above piece is fine as per what the docb project looks for in an article. In general, you might want to limit your use of blue links, red links and the citations somewhat...(but that's my personal bias). Keep editing and "be bold". --Stormbay (talk) 02:47, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Royal de Luxe[edit]

Thanks. You've done a lot of work. I'll see what I can do to help, but my time is limited. --Cbdorsett (talk) 05:05, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Wikijedits, you are a wonder! Thank-you so much for translating the page. I'm really very grateful. And so quickly, given there was so much! I'll have a search on google and see if I can find where all the information came from. I'm not sure what part of the world you are in, but given your username, I think you might have been interetsed in a tv prog I saw the other night : 'Bring Back Star wars', in which Justin Lee Collins reunited various Star Wars stars (the little robot guy, the Boba Fett guy, the little teddy bear guy and Darth Vader himself, plus Lando Calwhatnot, the tall wooky guy and Princess Leia in LA.

White horse plus[edit]

Happy you took it up, it is fascinating isn't it, and different from the other WH articles. Be glad to help, soon as I can. :) Julia Rossi (talk) 22:12, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

PS just been there and it's brilliant – start class or more already. You're good! When you're ready, pitch it to DYK. You could do better but here's an example hook,
  • ...that the white horse in mythology is associated with the sun chariot, warrior-heroes, fertility or an end-of-time saviour, sometimes with seven heads?

Or I can nominate you, Julia Rossi (talk) 22:22, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Sure, I'll nominate you and give you a link to it. Meanwhile I'll help with those other things. :) Julia Rossi (talk) 22:30, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

DYK Nom[edit]

Hi Wikijedits here's your link[1], and your article is currently near the top. If you would like to change it or can think of something more "hooky" just say, Julia Rossi (talk) 01:58, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Please find suggestions here[2] for an intro para, and subsets of mythologies. For starters. If your images are all copyright-cool (or from wiki articles) their layout looks okay to me, Julia Rossi (talk) 02:38, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for that – I wasn't sure. Did you see my comment about genetics vs visual/symbolic importance of "white"? I'm not sure how to put it, but the horse as "white" looking is more important in this context than what is a genetically white horse. Also, I couldn't find the ref but I found a comment that whiteness in horses was a breeding intervention, so the connection with domesticating horses way back and formulating legends involving them, and what that does for myth might be interesting. Julia Rossi (talk) 09:12, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Did a bit more as you suggested, and tucked the kinds of traditions under a common title – tweak as you feel fit. Had another thought, the degree of paleness seems to be a key, esp with the one that is rose petals er, leaves on a saffron field which suggests a kind of palomino or dappling– and grey being light. (It's hidden in edit text of the Iranian tradition section). So, maybe a section that discusses this with refs. I put it here for later, anyway. Also put the eight feet iinto the hook unless it's too long that way, what do you think? Julia Rossi (talk) 09:34, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

DYK for White horse %28mythology%29[edit]

Updated DYK query On 25 November, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article White horse (mythology), which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

BorgQueen (talk) 01:41, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Congrats WikiJedits <two thumbs up> :) Julia Rossi (talk) 05:56, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
You're very welcome and it's such a good article. More people will come along to edit since it's been dyk'd. And yes, the dyk page is getting more complicated with up to five queues of noms in waiting. I don't know how the eds do it either. Keep up the good work, Julia Rossi (talk) 21:58, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Ref Desk Rich/Poor[edit]

Nice research on the Rich vs. Poor Calorie topic. It is a common thing lately for answers to be opinion or personal knowledge. I try to look things up when possible, you went way beyond. rock on.10draftsdeep (talk) 02:08, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi! I replied to your information request on my talk page. for continuity. Richard Harvey (talk) 17:54, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

White horse (mythology)[edit]

Hi WikiJedits, there is a discussion about a segment of this article regarding whether mythology surrounding the white donkey (in reference to Jewish tradition) should or should not be included in a "horse" article. As there is only one editor on each side of the issue, I am inviting some of the folks who were actively involved in creating the article and adding substantive content to take a peek and weigh in. Thanks Montanabw(talk) 22:41, 9 June 2010 (UTC)



Dear WikiJedits! Please let me know, is Your request still open? Possibly I can help ... Please answer on this page, thank You, Doc Taxon (talk) 15:54, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Hello Doc Taxon, I'd much appreciate any help you can offer! Let me know - thank you. Best, WikiJedits (talk) 18:26, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Okay, please let me know, what you already could prove true and what you are looking for? Doc Taxon (talk) 14:24, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
Hello! I have copied something about Graincourt. It will be a first file, I am still investigating. How can I transmit the file to you? Doc Taxon (talk) 09:27, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi Doc Taxon, sorry for the delay. I haven't been on here for a while. Thanks very much for the additions to the article – I think you filled in the name I'd not been able to read, which was what I wanted. Thank you!
I have no idea how to transfer a file – I have never done this on Wikipedia before. Let me see if I can find out. Some of the regulars on the resource exchange desk seem to be uploading them to Windows Live sites or Google sites but I do not know how they set this up. Best, WikiJedits (talk) 18:02, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Let's discuss on on this site here... Put into your preferences your email adress and I can contact you by wikipedia email without to read your email adress. Doc Taxon (talk) 18:16, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
okay: if you don't want to give me your email-address, you can download some stuff about Graincourt here:
Please download this file and let me know about the successful download. Thank you very much, Doc Taxon (talk) 15:39, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
Email sent in reply - I hope this works! WikiJedits (talk) 00:02, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
File sent back by email. I hope, you can open it now! Let me know the incoming and if you can use the stuff. It's all I could find. Cheers, Doc Taxon (talk) 12:02, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
