I'm no expert, but it looks like you moved everything to a /archive 21 sub-directory. If I'm reading it right you moved a page to :

  • User talk:TomStar81/Archive 21/Archive 10

when you wanted it at

  • User talk:TomStar81/Archive 10

am I guessing correctly? do you want me to put them back the way it was? — Ched (talk) 07:59, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

  • nevermind - looks like JJMC89 is taking care of everything. — Ched (talk) 08:14, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
    Yep, all sorted now. — JJMC89(T·C) 08:14, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Varma (given name)Edit

Hi TomStar81. I wonder if you would consider restoring this article. Its history has been a battlefield but it is important to know the background. Varma is both an Indian surname and a Finnish given name, and the given name has been repeatedly dragged into the continuing problems with the article on the Indian name. Varma (given name) was separated most recently when the main article was rewritten, for the umpteenth time, to refer only to Indians. Without Varma (given name) there is no coverage at all of the Finnish name, which seems unnecessary, especially as the article - unlike many name articles - is referenced. Best wishes, Ingratis (talk) 13:53, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Tom, any reason you deleted this page rather than participate in the talk page discussion? I'd rather discuss this here than on the Admin page. Your choice. Rklawton (talk) 21:57, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
