  On 14 August, 2006, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article The Three Dancers, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

Nice article and story for the tagline! Enjoyed reading it. Cheers -- Samir धर्म 06:55, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Town names pronounciationsEdit

Reply from Xn4Edit

Hello, the Greatgavini. You wrote on my talk page "Unfortunately, one or more of your edits have not conformed to Wikipedia's Neutral Point of View policy, and have been reverted." I'm always happy to be corrected, but if you could tell me which edit(s) this refers to and in what way it/they did not conform, it would speed up my learning curve. Greetings, Xn4 07:01, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Ah, I didn't mean any of your edits are POV! That's just one of the welcome notices available, and thinking that they're all similar, I put that one on your talk page. I see now it does have some extra stuff about NPOV, but I think it's more for warning you rather than for informative purposes. I'll change it to a more suitable one. All the best, -- THE GREAT GAVINI {T|C|#} 07:37, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

If it was not intended, then the correction would certainly be appreciated. Regards, Xn4 07:43, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

It has been corrected. -- THE GREAT GAVINI {T|C|#} 07:45, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. --Mal 01:47, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Re: Flanking maneuverEdit

The MoS says:

"

  • Articles should use the same dialect throughout.
  • If an article's subject has a strong tie to a specific region/dialect, it should use that dialect.
  • Where varieties of English differ over a certain word or phrase, try to find an alternative that is common to both.
  • If no such words can be agreed upon, and there is no strong tie to a specific dialect, the dialect of the first significant contributor (not a stub) should be used.

"

Since the article name is "Flanking maneuver", we should not include other spellings of the word per point one. I have made a redirect Flanking manoeuver to the article already, so there should be no problem. Point two and point three are invalid; per point four, the article should use the dialect of the first significant contributor, which is me.

The examples you gave are single words, whereas an alternate spelling could be provided. However, "flanking maneuver" is a term, and a variant of only one of the word is best not included. See Aluminium battery for example, where the word Aluminium could be spelled Aluminum.

The sentence I removed is: "spelled flanking manoeuvre in Commonwealth and other countries" Incidentally I find this sentence a bit strange and confusing, which is one of the reasons I removed it. "other countries" can mean any other country in the world - whereas it should be any other country in the English-speaking world only.

I have now linked the word "maneuver" into its article, which included the different spellings - hopefully any confusion from Commonwealth readers will be cleared.

Thanks for the compliment :). Unfortunately I made typos throughout the article. Aran|heru|nar 04:14, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Courtesy notice of proposed deletionEdit

I've added the "{{prod}}" template to the article List of English words of Romanian origin, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not and Wikipedia:Notability). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree, discuss the issues raised at Talk:List of English words of Romanian origin. If you remove the {{dated prod}} template, the article will not be deleted, but note that it may still be sent to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Lagringa 23:01, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Firstly, there is no deletion notice on the article, and secondly I've re-added pastrami because the article of the same name states the word is from the language, and Online Etymology Dictionary thinks so too. An unsupported theory (the "definitely not Romanian" one) which contradicts another article in this encyclopaedia is probably not worth going by. -- the GREAT Gavini 15:20, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Someone removed my deletion tag. I've got no problem with adding pastrami. The information that was there that said it wasn't from Romanian looked pretty detailed and convincing. I still question whether one word justifies a whole article on the topic, and I'm not too optimistic about finding more. Lagringa 18:36, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Sarie.jpg)Edit

Thanks for uploading Image:Sarie.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Fair use rationale for Image:Screaming_Trees_and_Donna_Dresch.gifEdit

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Screaming_Trees_and_Donna_Dresch.gif. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Le Tigre album.jpg)Edit

  Thanks for uploading Image:Le Tigre album.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Speedy deletion nomination of Soledad PuértolasEdit

A tag has been placed on Soledad Puértolas requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. -Zeus-u|c 23:33, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Language-population update projectEdit

Hi. The 18th edition of Ethnologue just came out, and if we divide up our language articles among us, it won't take long to update them. I would appreciate it if you could help out, even if it's just a few articles (5,000 articles is a lot for just me), but I won't be insulted if you delete this request.

A largely complete list of articles to be updated is at Category:Language articles citing Ethnologue 17. The priority articles are in Category:Language articles with old Ethnologue 17 speaker data. These are the 10% that have population figures at least 25 years old.

Probably 90% of the time, Ethnologue has not changed their figures between the 17th and 18th editions, so all we need to do is change "e17" to "e18" in the reference (ref) field of the language info box. That will change the citation for the artcle to the current edition. Please put the data in the proper fields, or the info box will flag it as needing editorial review. The other relevant fields are "speakers" (the number of native speakers in all countries), "date" (the date of the reference or census that Ethnologue uses, not the date of Ethnologue!), and sometimes "speakers2". Our convention has been to enter e.g. "1990 census" when a census is used, as other data can be much older than the publication date. Sometimes a citation elsewhere in the article depends on the e17 entry, in which case you will need to change "name=e17" to "name=e18" in the reference tag (assuming the 18th edition still supports the cited claim).

Remember, we want the *total* number of native speakers, which is often not the first figure given by Ethnologue. Sometimes the data is too incompatible to add together (e.g. a figure from the 1950s for one country, and a figure from 2006 for another), in which case it should be presented that way. That's one use for the "speakers2" field. If you're not sure, just ask, or skip that article.

Data should not be displayed with more than two, or at most three, significant figures. Sometimes it should be rounded off to just one significant figure, e.g. when some of the component data used by Ethnologue has been approximated with one figure (200,000, 3 million, etc.) and the other data has greater precision. For example, a figure of 200,000 for one country and 4,230 for another is really just 200,000 in total, as the 4,230 is within the margin of rounding off in the 200,000. If you want to retain the spurious precision of the number in Ethnologue, you might want to use the {{sigfig}} template. (First parameter in this template is for the data, second is for the number of figures to round it off to.)

Dates will often need to be a range of all the country data in the Ethnologue article. When entering the date range, I often ignore dates from countries that have only a few percent of the population, as often 10% or so of the population isn't even separately listed by Ethnologue and so is undated anyway.

If Ethnologue does not provide a date for the bulk of the population, just enter "no date" in the date field. But if the population figure is undated, and hasn't changed between the 17th & 18th editions of Ethnologue, please leave the ref field set to "e17", and maybe add a comment to keep it so that other editors don't change it. In cases like this, the edition of Ethnologue that the data first appeared in may be our only indication of how old it is. We still cite the 14th edition in a couple dozen articles, so our readers can see that the data is getting old.

The articles in the categories linked above are over 90% of the job. There are probably also articles that do not currently cite Ethnologue, but which we might want to update with the 18th edition. I'll need to generate another category to capture those, probably after most of the Ethnologue 17 citations are taken care of.

Jump in at the WP:LANG talk page if you have any comments or concerns. Thanks for any help you can give!

Proposed deletion of File:Gvf.jpgEdit

 

The file File:Gvf.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

unused, low-res, no obvious use

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 files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

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

Proposed deletion of Israel MaimonEdit

 

The article Israel Maimon has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.
