The Great Wall of China: DocumentaryEdit

1, 2, 3, 4. Geng Zhou, a soldier of Qi Jiguang, is a fictional character, but he is the second main protagonist, then he could have an own page. It could also be created the documentary page: Behind the Great Wall. Please, can you help me, because I'm too busy?

July 14, 2-7pm: Annual NYC Wiki-Picnic @ Roosevelt Island

You are invited to join us at the "picnic anyone can edit" in the lovely Southpoint Park on Roosevelt Island, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the USA. Remember it's a wiki-picnic, which means potluck.

This year the Wiknic will double as a "Strategy Salon" (more information at Wiknic page), using open space technology to address major questions facing our social movement.

2–7pm - come by any time!
Our picnicking area is at Southpoint Park, south of the tram and subway, and also just south of the Cornell Tech campus.
Look for us by the Wikipedia / Wikimedia NYC banner!

Celebrate our 13th year of wiki-picnics! We hope to see you there! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Wikimedia New York City Team 21:36, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Discussion on WP:ROUTINEEdit

Greetings, I started a RFC at Wikipedia talk:Notability (people) that concerns an issue you mentioned at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wink Hartman. I do not know how to mass send notification to others involved, or if it is necessary, but I did mention the AFD and you might have interest. I am also notifying @Cbl62:, @DGG:, and @Paulmcdonald:, not because of any !votes but as admins likely to close, and opinions concerning inclusion or exclusion, at the location. If I have made any errors please feel free to correct them or whatever action might be necessary for the discussion. Otr500 (talk) 19:30, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

The page has been deleted. Here are few links for the person. He has been appointed as Advisor to Odisha Adarsha Vidyalaya . Can there be a wiki page on Dr Sahoo. Some credible citations are — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sadhakm (talkcontribs) 10:37, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Out of those I don't see any that would constitute significant coverage of the subject except for sources which are not considered fully independent, such as a CV or interview. What matters is quality, not quantity. -- King of ♠ 04:10, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

unblock queryEdit

You unblocked wnt, with a rationale about "having learned their lesson" in your judgement. Did you discuss this with anyone else before doing that, such as the blocking or reviewing admins? cygnis insignis 04:21, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
