Happy Holidays!Edit

Hi! Thanks very much! Happy Holidays to you!

Happy HolidaysEdit

Thank you, Abishe, I really appreciated, and hope you enjoy the Christmas, too :D !

Can I ask you a question ?Edit

Hi, Abishe, again, thank you for your note. Can I ask you something: I created My account: Giangkiefer, in 2014, but, since then, I have only 4478 edits (I created over 60 articles and edits many other articles). I had seen your user account, you created the account early in 2017, but since then you have 100.000 edits. I've seen many other accounts, many of them also have 100.000 edits. Can you explain it to me. I don't get it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Giangkiefer (talkcontribs) 1 January 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 26Edit

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited 2019 Sri Lanka floods, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hakmana (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 07:37, 26 September 2019 (UTC)


Hi, can you improve this and remove the tag?♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:33, 26 September 2019 (UTC) @Dr. Blofeld: So sweet of your suggestion and I will try to fix the issue. I think you created the article in 2011 and now I can see it is PRODED for mainly depending upon IMDb source. I want to search for other sources and since the film was a 1996 release, it will be quite unsure about the availability of reliable sources. But I really like your request because it is a pleasure to discuss with a veteran editor like you and I will cherish these moments. Hope I can help you out before 30 September 2019. Thanks. Abishe (talk) 14:44, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Abishe, I had been tracking this article from WP:India watchlist and had been looking to improve the sourcing. When I finally came to dePROD it, I found that you had already beat me to it. I was glad to see that and added couple of sources I had found. Good work. --DBigXray 09:52, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!Edit


After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

The Signpost: 30 September 2019Edit

WiR stub contestEdit

Hi there, Abishe. Thanks for participating in the contest. I've been checking article length and see that Risa Sugimoto is still too short (730 characters, 121 words). Nicole Schafer almost reaches the mark but not quite. All the others are fine.--Ipigott (talk) 08:06, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

@Ipigott: Oh! I am terribly sorry for my error and it is unfortunate that I breached the guidelines. I will try to expand a bit. Hopefully I can solve this issue. Thanks Abishe (talk) 08:20, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
You certainly don't need to apologize. It's not too easy to explain the concept of "running text" or "readable prose". Those used to submitting articles for DYK are more familiar with it but the Wikipedia tools come up with all kinds of different statistics on an article's length. Maybe you are right that we should have adopted clearer rules on the article listings from the start but when I asked for comments on our ideas page, no one made any suggestions. Now that we've started on this path, I think we should see how things evolve over the next couple of days before introducing any changes.--Ipigott (talk) 10:39, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
@Ipigott: Thanks for your sweet reply. As what you have said here, we can see how this campaign would go on for a next couple of days. Hopefully many volunteers will take part in the contest. Abishe (talk) 12:32, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Hey Abishe, Thanks for reviewing Anat Lelior that I created! Nice to meet you. I'm also a huge cricket fan! Sri Lanka are a great team! Still remember the 1996 World Cup very well :) Wondering if it would be possible to create another page I created Zeev Farbman Thank you MaskedSinger (talk) 15:25, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

@MaskedSinger: Thank you for the sweet gesture and for this heart touching message. Keep improving Wikipedia. Never expected a message from you. Keep growing and I wish you for your success. Abishe (talk) 16:41, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Priyani WijesekeraEdit


The article Priyani Wijesekera has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails to establish the notability of the subject. Simply being the ambassador to another country does not confer notability. Receiving a Zonta Award is not notable. Needs more than mentions in passing, requires significant coverage.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi there, first, thanks for all you do on WP, but I wanted to let you know that there was already an article on this handball player. I've redirected this more full name to the already existing article. Onel5969 TT me 14:13, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
