List of the ultra-prominent summits of North AmericaEdit

 

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of List of the ultra-prominent summits of North America, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: List of the most prominent summits of North America. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot was mistaken and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 23:58, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from List of mountain peaks of the Rocky Mountains into List of the major 4000-meter summits of the Rocky Mountains. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 14:01, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Highest points in GreenlandEdit

In the page "Helges Halvo-Pandebrasken High Point, Greenland" on Peakbagger [1] the peak is named as the "Helges Halvo Island (Highest Point)". But no such island exists. Helges Halvo (Halvø means peninsula in Danish) is a small peninsula at the eastern end of Skjoldungen Island. There are no high peaks on that small peninsula, the highest peak is at the other end of Skjoldungen in the NW, as mentioned in "Prostar Sailing Directions 2005 Greenland and Iceland Enroute, page 101:

"Skjoldungen (63°20'N., 41°30'W.), a large island over 1,500m high in its NW part, stretches 27 miles in a NE/SW direction. It is separated from the mainland by Sonder Skjoldungesund (Inugsuarmiut), to the SW, and Nordre Skjoldungesund, to the NE."

Regarding the name "Helges Halvo Island", it is a bogus name based on this somewhat sloppy UNEP link that unfortunately has been often used as a reference for a while. Thanks for your attention. Xufanc (talk) 04:06, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the information. Information about the geography of Greenland is quite sparse. Peakbagger.com has tried to provide information about the mountains of Greenland, but much of it is of questionable accuracy. I'll update the mountain lists in the next few days. You may wish to contact peakbagger.com directly. Thanks again,  Buaidh  16:42, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Your old percent Template:ChangeEdit

Hi there,

Thanks for making that percent change template many years ago. I'm wondering if you would be able to help me find a solution to a little glitch in the template. In my sandbox you can see that a reference placed by one of the input numbers turns the output percent into a NA. If the reference is placed at the end, it appears only in the output column.

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)Edit

Hi. I was wondering if you would be interested in contributing articles to Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)? It needs contributors to increase diversity of content from different countries and bring about large scale improvements. The idea at some point will be to host a National Contest related to your country of interest. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:15, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Latin American 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

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. 00:27, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia: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 Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia 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. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to!

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open!Edit

 Hello, Buaidh. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and AustraliaEdit

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest! Cheers.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:12, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

WashingtonianEdit

I don't understand this edit. Why are you again adding a link to a disambiguation page and a reference that isn't a reference? I'm not expert in this matter, but since "Washingtonian" is listed in the GPO source, and doesn't explicitly connect it with Washington state (i.e. it just says, basically, "use these" and then also lists e.g. "Puerto Rican"), I don't see why it wouldn't be included in that column. If it isn't in that source, then you'd need to add another reliable source to support including it (rather than just a note and a dab page). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 00:04, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Washingtonian is listed by the GPO as the demonym for the State of Washington only. Please read the GPO Style Manual. The reference is a note of explanation. Yours aye,  Buaidh  00:08, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
I have. Hence what I said above. It has a list of demonyms "for natives of the States". Surely if we assumed DC would be included in such a list, they would not list Washingtonian twice. On the other hand, if we assume literal understanding of the description "States" then why would we not also recognize that it says "natives" and not "residents" (when many natives aren't residents and many residents aren't natives).
In any event, if you would like to argue that it is not in the GPO to use it for DC, then you'll need to add a source for the unofficial usage. There are multiple duplicates, so no need for an unsourced note. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:52, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Only states are states. DC is excluded. For a PhD you certainly are stupid.  Buaidh 
What a peach. That quick with the personal attacks from someone with 150k+ edits is disturbing. Regardless, it's been a joy, but if you're going to fuss about "states are states", perhaps fuss also about "natives are natives", or, when fussing over sources, don't add original research at the same time. I'll go ahead and leave it at that. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 14:03, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not a peach. I'm an elderly curmudgeon. You continue to argue your point even when it makes no sense. Sorry about the insult. You're not stupid. You're just overly persistent. Yours aye,  Buaidh  15:23, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
