"The avalanche was down,
the hillside swept bare behind it;
the last echoes died on the white slopes;
the new mount glittered and lay still in the silent valley."
Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

Deletion of previous contributionEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

You deleted my last contribution (regarding Andronovo culture) with references to Asko Parpola (2017) and Shubleya et al. (2019) and replaced them by previous references to Witzel (two papers) and Parpola (2015) and Narasimhan et al. (2018). Within your sources I did not find ANY reference to dating of Andronovo, except in Parpola (2015) which mentions the "outdated" beginning around 2000 BC, but you anyway quote it as having 1800 BC, on the other hand Narasimhan et al (2018) do not mention any dating for Andronovo neither. If my contribution is going to be replaced, it should be by a better quoting. --Lic. Carlos (talk) 15:45, 8 August 2019 (UTC.

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:Indian religions portalEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:Indian religions portal requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Mycenaean GreeceEdit

Might I ask you to keep an eye on Mycenaean Greece, as I only occasionally edit Wikipedia? The 2019 consensus across multiple fields is pretty damn clear that the Mycenaeans and their language/culture descended from the intrusion of a population descending from the original Proto-Indo-Europeans into the mainland of what is today Greece; I have made a handful of sourced edits making that clear. Another editor, who rather reminds me of a banned one prone to socking, quite clearly wants to pretend that none of this ever happened. Hölderlin2019 (talk) 02:53, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

@Hölderlin2019: I've put it on my watchlist. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 07:21, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

The Genetics WarsEdit

Just FYI since I see you've been following the dispute, I've asked Doug Weller to look into the Turkic/East Asian genetics wars currently raging here, see User talk:Doug Weller#Edit warring over genetics between Hunan201p and DerekHistorian.--Ermenrich (talk) 00:16, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Poor Doug Weller... what a job! Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 06:27, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
I think most of the genetics info is in violation of WP:SCIRS requirement that human genetics only be sourced to review articles, so probably most of the areas they're edit-warring over should just be deleted.--Ermenrich (talk) 18:36, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Turkic people and Hunan201pEdit

Hey, the last edits of Hunan are pure POv pushing, as he deleted a sentence which is a direct quote from the reference. This: “However, western Turkic peoples sampled across West Eurasia shared an excess of long chromosomal tracts that are identical by descent (IBD) with populations from present-day South Siberia and Mongolia (SSM), an area where historians center a series of early Turkic and non-Turkic steppe polities.” is written in the reference and he deleted it saying it is not in the reference. Maybe he can not read... could you please reinsert it? Thank you!213.142.96.62 (talk) 10:01, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
