Tiina Wilén-JäppinenEdit

You wrote that Tiina Wilén-Jäppinen died on December 4. How did you arrive at that date, does the Finnish source say so? The Mirror reports it happened "at midnight on Saturday", which is somewhat ambiguous, but Saturday would be December 3. Yle News reports Wilén-Jäppinen "was killed along with two journalists that wrote for the local Uutisvuoksi newspaper in Imatra late Saturday evening", so that's again December 3.

Proposed deletion of David BurhaniEdit

 

The article David Burhani has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG and WP:NFOOTBALL

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles 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 article 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.

Proposed deletion of Deepak Anand (director)Edit

Hello, Jonny Nixon. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Deepak Anand (director), for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

Hi. Thankyou for your participation in the challenge series or/and contests. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible.

The articles done may also count towards the ongoing challenge. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:19, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Alan GarciaEdit

@DoctorSpeed: Yes, I'm well aware he died, I removed unsourced information at the time actually. Did you see my edits towards the article afterwards when more reliable sources became available? Thanks, —Jonny Nixon (talk) 21:12, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I actually supported your efforts to move the assassination to the "On the News"section on the main page—thanks for that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DoctorSpeed (talkcontribs) 17:15, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
