Why this?[edit]

I wonder why you deleted my edit at a talk page?[1] Yogesh Khandke (talk) 01:40, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, this was my mistake, I didn't mean to do it. Can you please repost your comment? Y-barton (talk) 21:18, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Golden Buddha[edit]

It looks like I left an ambiguous edit summary - when I said "remove gallery and link to commons cat" I meant I was removing the gallery and adding a link to the commons category. The article previously linked to the commons category for the Wat Traimit temple, but a more specific category exists for the statue itself, so I used that one instead. --McGeddon (talk) 08:24, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cylinder of Nabonidus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page William Albright (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.

Cylinder of Nabonidus move[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Cylinder of Nabonidus a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. Kolbasz (talk) 20:31, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, Kolbasz. Sorry for my inexperience, but now the article has been moved and I'll try to improve it. All the best. Y-barton (talk) 03:13, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Copying[edit]

Generally you shouldnt copypaste text between articles the way you copied some of the text I wrote for the Champollion article to the one on Young - it creates potential copyright and plagiarism problems. Please see WP:Copying within Wikipedia.·maunus · snunɐɯ· 04:26, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Maunus! I don't quite understand what you're saying. Please explain. As far as I know, there's no copyright on Wiki text. Y-barton (talk) 05:20, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Actually there is copyright on wikitext, but it simply requires attribution to the user who originally wrote it, and that is what is missing when you copy text from one article to another without noting in the edit summary that you copied it. You should read the link I supplied above to learn more about the specifics of copyright on wikipedia and how it affects copying between articles.·maunus · snunɐɯ· 05:29, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Great that you are working on Young btw. Robinson's 2006 biography is really recommendable as a source for that article.·maunus · snunɐɯ· 05:31, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, it's kinda hard to give credit to someone you don't know. Wiki articles are by definition anonymous, so when I copy from one Wiki article to another one (as is sometimes appropriate), most of the time I have no idea who wrote that particular passage that I’m copying.
As far as Young article is concerned, I just performed some basic rescue on it. Clearly, nobody has updated that info since 1908! (Old Britannica article) :)
It's amazing how that whole thing was politicized back then... It's all about “We the British did it best - anyhow!”. Sounded really like stone-age sort of politics... a trip into the past... :)
Improving Champollion article is kind of hard, because it's already pretty good. But lots of related articles are really messy. I just did another rescue attempt on Writing in Ancient Egypt – that was pretty bad! Cheers, Y-barton (talk) 01:51, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

A cup of tea for you![edit]

Meissen-teacup pinkrose01.jpg Hi Y-baton, thanks for your contributions to Chinese archaeology articles, such as Yueshi culture! This subject badly needs contributors like you. Zanhe (talk) 07:45, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
I've expanded the article a bit, and I think it's nearly ready for DYK. However, there are a few unsourced paragraphs, do you happen to have sources handy for them? If not, we should probably remove them. There's plenty of other material to add from existing sources. Cheers! -Zanhe (talk) 07:49, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you Zanhe! I'll try to add some refs as soon as possible. All the info I've put into the article is based on good sources. I'm definitely interested in expanding Wiki coverage in this general area. I'm particularly interested in the Xia dynasty, and in clarifying the Erlitou culture connection. All the best.

Qumran silver hoard may be even more iffy[edit]

If interested, see Qumran talk section. Your edits did bring the section closer to recognizing some proposals as a minority view. CoralapusCoralapus (talk) 16:41, 2 March 2016 (UTC)Coralapus

Thank you, Coralapus, and I agree with what you wrote. Good to know it's a minority view! :) So it's all the more surprising that Lönnqvist's problematic material was sitting there already for years, before I got to it!
I did some digging in article history to see that this matter was actively promoted back in 2011. For example, here (26 April 2011). Thus, some of this new material that you offer now already was in the article. Then it was removed. So there were some disputes going on back then.
But, regardless, the task now is to improve the article further and to add some of this material again. Shouldn't be so hard... Y-barton (talk) 19:33, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
