DYK for Villa AlbergoniEdit

 On 25 April 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Villa Albergoni, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Villa Albergoni, a 16th-century Italian country mansion, was featured in the 2017 film Call Me by Your Name? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Villa Albergoni. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Villa Albergoni), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

September 2019Edit

  Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

I noticed your recent edit to Humayun's Tomb does not have an edit summary. Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing →   Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. Thanks! Tamravidhir (talk) 05:33, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Category:Jewelry retailers of Japan has been nominated for discussionEdit

A discussion is taking place to decide whether this proposal complies with the categorization guidelines.

Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Delhi moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Delhi, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

Agatha Christie bio editEdit

Hi Gryffindor,

Thanks for the recent addition of the link to 'Dame' on the Agatha Christie bio page. As the link is also provided above Agatha's picture to the right on that page I'm hoping you would agree to leave the initial 'Dame' in the text unlinked please - I think it just looks better to have that initial presentation of her full name and title all in bold and unlinked. What do you think?

In this context, the same could be said for the linked 'DBE' which also appears with the picture and is also essentially linked later in the first paragraph of the page. Can we remove that link in the first line of the bio too? RLO1729 (talk) 19:53, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Move discussion for Jō-anEdit

Hello! You moved this page from "Jo-an (teahouse)" back in 2017 -- this appears to be an error, because the reading is じょあん (syllables: jo-a-n), not じょうあん (syllables: jo-o-a-n). I wanted to make you aware of this, in case for example you had the misconception that everywhere "jo" appears it should be "jō". Imaginatorium (talk) 04:50, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Sanskrit terms in common use in EnglishEdit

Hi, I note your recent edits. The criterion for using italics for a term is that it is definitely seen as foreign rather than English. This means that terms borrowed from other languages which are in wide use and effectively assimilated into English, like Divan (Persian), Chaise longue (French), Influenza (Italian), Yoga and Asana (Sanskrit) and so on are not italicised. Etymology alone is no guide to this: English has thousands of once-foreign words in its dictionaries. I do hope this is clear. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 17:27, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Chiswick,

The rule is stated here MOS:FOREIGNITALIC. Asana is not a term that is generally known or understood in English, unlike words like pizza or spaghetti despite their non-English origins. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 17:33, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Gryffindor, I know the rule, but Asana is a well-known term in English and has been in rather wide use for at least the past 50 years, if not 100 (Ngram). Merriam-Webster assures me that the term was first used in English in 1811, indeed, and since the advance of modern postural yoga from the 1920s by Yogendra, Kuvalayananda and others, it has become very familiar. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 17:39, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Questions, answers from Talk page of Deadwood bonsai techniquesEdit

Hi, Gryffindor;

I've posted an answer to a question you left on Talk: Deadwood bonsai techniques. The answer's on the same page following your entry. It's probably supererogatory now, as I saw when researching my answer that you had already moved forward with my favorite suggestion. I hope that addresses the question for you. If not, I look forward to your feedback or other involvement. Thanks!

Orphaned non-free image File:Austrian Trade Union Federation (OGB) logo.PNGEdit

 

Thanks for uploading File:Austrian Trade Union Federation (OGB) logo.PNG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently 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 for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BegbertBiggs (talk) 19:13, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Sanskrit terms adopted into English and widely used are not subject to MOS ForeignEdit

Hi, and thank you for your efforts to standardise word formatting on Wikipedia; many of your edits are certainly helpful.

However, there are numerous terms in Yoga and Hinduism that have been widely used for many years, and can be found in the major English dictionaries (such as Oxford, Merriam-Webster).

For instance, Brahmin has been used in English for centuries; from the 15th century as "Brahman", from the early 19th as "Brahmin".

I have previously explained this kind of usage to you, and the logic involved: when a term is widely used in English, it is no longer "foreign" whatever its etymology.

To save having the same discussion at 100 yoga pages, let's discuss this please at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Yoga.

I am sorry to say that repeated application of your approach, given that you have been told the matter is, to say the least, not agreed with other editors, is becoming disruptive. I will revert those of your edits that are clearly contrary to policy because the words are no longer "foreign", and hope very much that you will understand the reason for this. Many thanks for your co-operation. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:38, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
