church disambiguation pages[edit]

Hi Ketiltrout, i notice a couple of edits on my watchlist where you have revised church disambiguation pages, including this edit to the First United Presbyterian Church page. Could I ask that you stop and discuss, before editing more? Because there are a few hundred of these, I think, and it is not obvious what is best formatting, but we don't want some editors going one way vs. others going another. On that page, I do agree that some editing was called for. I will edit there now, to what I think it should be, then can we discuss? sincerely, Doncram

Deletion discussion about Basler Turbo BT-67[edit]

Hello, Ketiltrout,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether Basler Turbo BT-67 should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Basler Turbo BT-67 .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

EDO[edit]

I do not agree with what you've done. Pretty much all of the major uses are lower case (Edo, Edo State, Edo period). If you must merge them then the dab page should be at Edo (disambiguation) instead. —Xezbeth (talk) 04:56, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Also, why have you removed valid entries from Ego? Why are you removing descriptions? Are you by any chance using Dabfix? —Xezbeth (talk) 05:04, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Edo I'd support a move to Edo (disambiguation). I merged the pages into EDO because that's where Edo (disambiguation) was originally split from. Had I done it the other way, I think it would have essentially been a copy-paste move.
Ego I found one entry (Willy William) I shouldn't have deleted. I put it back. Thanks for catching it. The only other entry I can see that I removed was the Macklemore song, which is not mentioned in the target article. Are there more? Regarding descriptions, my reading of MOSDAB is that descriptions should only be used to disambiguate otherwise ambiguous terms in the dab list. An entry like European Gravitational Observatory is self-describing and doesn't need to be further disambiguated on that page. I do not use Dabfix.

Gibberish text in Ethiopia-related article[edit]

I don't know if you have any specific interest in Ethiopia, but I saw that you had made some sensible edits, and since I see no WikiProject:Ethiopia, I don't know who to refer this mess to. I don't know how it can be handled but hopefully someone does. --Thnidu (talk) 16:25, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Never mind. I found the anonymous insertion of that text, with WikiBlame, and restored the valued text it had replaced, as well as the first word of the article. --Thnidu (talk) 16:54, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

Straža redirect[edit]

I believe it should be redirected Straza --> Straža as most of places have that name.

Also, resulting Straža is duplicate of Straza in Wikidata. AndrejJ (talk) 08:28, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

On the English Wikipedia, because English speakers are generally unfamiliar with diacritics, consolidating different DAB pages with variant diacritics into a single page is somewhat the norm. Among English speakers, letters like "Z" and "Ž" aren't generally considered distinct (unless the speaker is familiar with, say, Serbo-Croatian).
But thanks for reminding me about those WikiData entries. I meant to check them but then got distracted by other matters. I believe you're correct: they are duplicates. I've done my best to merge them: I've moved EN DE and IT to wikidata:Q2289970 since that's going to be more helpful for everyone. Unfortunately, the presence of both ceb:Straza and ceb:Straža (which also appear to be duplicates) means they can't be fully merged. Cheers,—Ketil Trout (<><!) 00:29, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Archana (Hinduism)[edit]

Notice

The article Archana (Hinduism) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Fails WP:GNG. Unsourced for over a decade and no obvious redirect targets.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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 page 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.

Speedy deletion nomination of Day of mourning (disambiguation)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Day of mourning (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is a redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.
