Bulgarians are not Turkic[edit source | edit]

Bulgarians are not Turkic. Bulgarians are the old local population called also in the past "Thracians" (Edoni, Kekoni, Sarmati, Misi, Geti, Mirmidoni, etc.). There are many ancient documents about that, and also in addition, there was a DNA test that proves 40% of the DNA that today's Bulgarians are having is same as Thracian rulers, that are found on our lands. And the most close nationalities to us are Macedonians, Romanians and people from North Italy regions. On of the Byzantium history writers mentions that: "Asparukh (the "creator" of Bulgaria in 681) came with hundreds of thousands of Bulgarians and others, to TAKE BACK the lands, that he owns by his father's and born right!". β€” Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.70.119.40 (talk) 10:43, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Question on how to improve Jonas S. Chartock[edit source | edit]

Hello πŸ‘‹. While patrolling recent changes, I ran into the Jonas S. Chartock article. Which appears to read like a resume, and had a number of external links that seamed to be promotional. I tried to clean up the page a little. My question is three-fold:

  1. Do you have any feedback on the changes that I made?
  2. What are some things I can do to further improve the article?
  3. Is this article even noteworthy enough to justify existence?

Some thoughts I had:

  • The Music section seams mostly irrelevant as it reference bands that are themselves don't have their own articles and are probably not noteworthy enough to merit an article.
  • I'd probably say the same for the acting section also seams irrelevant because although many of the films are on IMDb, they are not high budget films/series/shorts and are probably also not noteworthy enough for an article.
  • There are a lot of awards listed in the "career in education service," I'm not sure they belong in the article either because the awards themselves aren't from notable sources.

I realise that this discussion should ultimately be in the articles talk page, but as a relatively new editor, I was hoping to get some general guidance first.

motevets (talk) 18:39, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

When I read "Jonas S. Chartock ... is a social impact entrepreneur", I automatically translate it as "self-promoting bullshitter". So I am an unsuitable person to make impartial comments. But your removal of direct external links is clearly supported by Wikiafripedia policy. Maproom (talk) 22:41, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Motevets, your changes seem fine, but I would suggest reviewing its notability before doing further work. The article was nominated for speedy deletion on 4 September by an IPA on the grounds that it wasn't notable, which failed as the reason wasn't on the list of speedy deletion criteria. If it is not notable it could be deleted via proposed deletion or articles for deletion nomination. TSventon (talk) 00:54, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Template trouble[edit source | edit]

Hello, I created the template Template: Brass instruments and somehow also created the template Template: Brass Instruments. Now they seem to be broken. I thought titles weren't case sensitive like that. Now on pages, like Flumpet it shows the template incorrectly (see how Bore is red-linked on that page). Can anybody help me remedy this? | Why? I Ask (talk) 19:30, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Why? I Ask, "Bore" appears to be fixed now. Only the first character is always capitalised, even if it is linked using a lowercase character; everything past that is case-sensitive. β€”Tenryuu πŸ² ( πŸ’¬ β€’ πŸ“ ) 20:02, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Tenryuu, are you sure? On the template itself it's fixed but on the actual pages (i.e. Flumpet) it's wrong. Also, If I type in Template:mUsiCal InstrUMENts it still leads me to Template:Musical instruments but it's not the same case for my predicament; they link to two different pages. Another question, why does it go Template: Brass Instruments β†’ "V" (View this template) β†’ Template: Brass instruments? - Why? I Ask (talk) 20:18, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Why? I Ask, have you tried purging the page? I clicked on "Bore" in the template in Flumpet and it brings me to Bore (wind instruments); I'm assuming that is the intended destination. Text in the search field is less case-sensitive, but page titles are; see WP:NCCPT for more information. β€”Tenryuu πŸ² ( πŸ’¬ β€’ πŸ“ ) 20:50, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
@Why? I Ask: Note, too, that if you type something in the search box at the top right of the page, and it results in only a single search result, it takes you directly to that page, even if what you typed is not an exact match (this may be configurable IIRC, but it works that way for me). If I type Template:MaTtEl in the search box, it goes directly to the {{Mattel}} navbox template; however, {{MaTtEl}} is a redlink and transcludes an error. β€”[AlanM1 (talk)]β€” 22:13, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Tenryuu, I added some screenshots (I hope that is fine). See how on the actual page, the template isn't right? (Bore not linked, Flumpet missing). But in the editor (I used visual) it loads correctly. I wanna know why that's happening. I have replaced it over and over but no dice.

@Why? I Ask: I see the Bore redlink in the first screenshot. It doesn't happen for me here. Questions/ideas:

  • If you click on the Bore link, what happens? What address is shown in the resulting window's address bar and what's in the title bar at the very top of the browser window?
  • Have you cleared your cache (Ctrl-F5 on most browsers)?
  • What browser are you using? Can you try a different one?
  • If you bring up a private/incognito browser window and go to the Frumpet page (as an anonymous non-logged-in user), is the link still red?
  • Unrelated, the Cornu, Helicon, Mouthpiece, and Falset items all point to disambiguation pages (i.e., they need to be pointed to the correct pages, e.g., [[Cornu]] β†’ [[Cornu (horn)|]]).

β€”[AlanM1 (talk)]β€” 08:59, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Reply to AlanM1 by user: Why? I Ask
  • Bore (wind instrument) instead of Bore (wind instruments); I originally put it wrong when I first made the template and later corrected it * Yes, I have as well as browser history (restarted computer as well)
  • Latest stable version of Google Chrome
  • Logging out seems to work and show it correctly but why would it not work if I'm logged in?
  • Thank you for pointing that out; I'm refraining from making any edits to the template though in case it messes something up further Why? I Ask (talk) 09:17, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
@Why? I Ask: Did you clear your cache (Ctrl-F5)? Also try clicking here to purge the server-side rendered page cache (and then clear your local cache again). β€”[AlanM1 (talk)]β€” 09:49, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
@AlanM1: Alright, purging it seems to have worked. Thank you for your help, it is greatly appreciated. One last question; do you know why I had to purge this particular page to see it load correctly and not any of the other ones that use the template? Why? I Ask (talk) 10:04, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
@Why? I Ask: Sorry, no. It is odd. β€”[AlanM1 (talk)]β€” 10:18, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Redirecting a page[edit source | edit]

I would like to nominate a page for redirection. The article Delta FM is pretty much redundant now. When the station closed it merged with Kestrel FM. This page then redirected to The Breeze, which now in turn should probably redirect to Greatest Hits Radio as The Breeze has also closed. Therefore, I would like to to nominate Delta FM to be redirected to Greatest Hits Radio. I have attempted to do the nomination myself but got very confused. Any help would be gratefully received. - Funky Snack (Talk) 08:36, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

I disagree with this proposal. The Delta FM article contains historical information which is not currently also present in the Greatest Hits Radio article (or elsewhere), and would consequently be lost by a mere redirect. I notice also that Kestrel FM now redirects to Greatest Hits Radio Berkshire & North Hampshire, which is apparently an ongoing entity separate from Greatest Hits Radio.
So, we have (at least) five variously related extinct and extant stations to deal with, which if merged as far as possible, would make for confusing reading. It seems to me that it is less confusing to maintain separate articles that include clear indications of these stations' historical relationships.
This is not to say that the four articles as they now are could not stand further clarification, perhaps by devising a diagram to show their relationships, and I could see an argument for restoring Kestrel FM as a separate article. {The poster formerly known as 87.81.230.195} 2.122.2.158 (talk) 11:16, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
I think you're missing my point here. I was asking for someone to put in a RfD for me. What you say about Greatest Hits Radio Berkshire & North Hampshire being separate from Greatest Hits Radio, that's not true. It's a networked radio station. - Funky Snack (Talk) 15:39, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
In which case, ought we to not have (at least) two separate articles about it/them, but rather sections for the geographic subdivisions under GHR (eliminating GHRB&NH as a separate article)?
You are right that I missed your point, and I'm still not quite sure what it is, but since I have no particular interest in the subject matter (despite being a Hampshire resident) I think I'll bow out of further participation in this issue. {The poster formerly known as 87.81.230.1905} 2.122.2.158 (talk) 04:23, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Just because something has ceased to operate it does not necessarily mean that it is no longer notable. There are plenty of such organisations (and in fact people ) who no longer exist which are still notable.. Some of them have passed on their work to other organisations because they have been taken over or because they were privatised ore sold off in bits. Some of them have just been wound up ,or in the case of people ,died. Would you say the following are no longer notable: Queen Elizabeth I, Britiish East India Company, British Railways, Royal Leicestershire Regiment, Czechoslovakia, Austin Motor Company etc? I think what is required is a statement in the Delta article to the effect that it merged with Kestrel. If Kestrel has an article of its own it should be blue linked in the Delta article, which is in fact what happened. Whether Delta was itself notable in the first place is a different question. So is whether a notable person or thing can become forgetable with the passage of time. Delta has been out of business for ten years. I think it would probably take longer than that. William Wyggeston (or Wigston) was notable in the early 16th century but he may or may not be notable now. (he was a wealthy wool merchant and philanthropist and was several times Mayor of Leicester) I haven't checked if he has a wikipedia page. Hope this helps.Spinney Hill (talk) 08:15, 8 September 2020 (UTC) I have just checked and he does have a page.

If you are indeed the holder of the copyright, then you have the power to license it in a way that Wikiafripedia will accept it (see donating copyright materials; but I suggest you don't do that, because it is very unlikely to be appropriately neutral| in tone. Remember that Wikiafripedia is basically not interested in anything said by the subject of an article about themselves, or by their associates: it is only interested in what people who have no connection with the subject, and have not been prompted or fed information by the subject, have chosen to publish about it. So your material on the band is irrelevant to Wikiafripedia: you need to find some independent sources about it. You also need to read about editing with a conflict of interest if you hve not already done so. --ColinFine (talk) 13:36, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

new addition: Isobel Sarah Frye[edit source | edit]

Isobel Sarah Frye is a lawyer and social justice activist.

Frye was born in Cape Town, South Africa, on 8 December 1971, the second daughter of Jennifer, a high school teacher, and John Frye, an Anglican priest.

Frye spent her formative years in constant motion as her father was transferred to parishes in the Eastern and Western Cape. She became politicised in the 1980s primarily due to her father’s work. Frye joined NUSAS when she enrolled at UCT to study a BA Llb in 1990, in its last days.

Frye worked as an attorney at Walker’s Attorneys as a commercial litigator from 1996 to 2002, becoming one of the first two female directors. She then left and joined the Black Sash as their National Advocacy Manager until joining NALEDI, the research service NGO of COSATU in 2004.

Frye is the founding director of not for profit research organisation Studies in Poverty and Inequality Institute (SPII) in 2006. She is one of the foremost commentators on a universal basic income grant in South Africa. She has represented Community Constituency in policy negotiations at NEDLAC since 2002. Frye was appointed one of the first National Minimum Wage commissioners byt eh Minister of Labour in January 2019. β€” Preceding unsigned comment added by 197.91.136.239 (talk) 12:50, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello, IP user. If you think Wikiafripedia should have an article about Frye, you are welcome to try creating one (but be warned that creating an article is one of the most difficult tasks there is for an inexperienced editor). Posting this material here will probably have no effect whatever. My suggestion would be to create an account, spend a few months improving existing articles and learning how Wikiafripedia works, and then, when you feel ready, read your first article and think about creating a draft about Frye - provided you can find the reliable published sources necessary to establish that she meets Wikiafripedia's criteria for notability. --ColinFine (talk) 13:39, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

They are credible, KingoftheWoods, but most of them are not independent of you; and the two that are (the New Scientist and Quill and Quire reviews) are about your books, but say almost nothing about you. It follows tht an article about you based on those seven sources would have almost no content. --ColinFine (talk) 17:10, 7 September 2020 (UTC)


I am an author who has written over 50 books, translated into up to 20 languages (e.g. The Bestiary) with some of the most reputable publishers in the World. My books have been reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement, Time Magazine and Sunday Telegraph as well as LA Times and Detroit Free Press. Someone created my wikipedia page in 2003 and it suddenly disappeared to be redirected to a fan type page for the brilliant JRR Tolkien.

My university has a special collection of my books and awarded me a "distinguished alumni" award. My books have been in print and are still selling in the bookstores and on line. I am at a loss to prove validity for Wikiafripedia. My books are me. Please help?


KingoftheWoods (talk) 17:43, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Also, in looking at my peers and contemporaries who have wiki pages, my page had more sources. I did not create my page, it was created at the beginning of Wikiafripedia and this year, I tried to rectify some information. Is my university a credible source, if so, maybe the information here will help https://www.uvic.ca/alumni/impact/home/awards/distinguished/2015-DA-bios/index.php

I read through the notability and would like you to reconsider putting my page created at the beginning of Wikiafripedia back on line KingoftheWoods (talk) 18:00, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

KingoftheWoods, It is not the number of sources cited, but their quality and content that matter. Merely because a person has published books, even many books, through major publishers does not make that person notable. Critical reviews published by independent reliable publishers can contribute to notability, as described in WP:NAUTHOR, but the reviews must themselves be cited, and secondary sources about the author are also usual. Also, please beware of the fallacy known here as Other stuff exists. Attempting to reason that some other article is in some sense not as good but is still around and therefore the article in question should not be deleted or redirected almost never works. Either the answer is that there is some relevant difference in circumstances, or that the other article has just not been nominated for deletion yet, but should be. Among the over 6 million articles here are at least hundr3eds of thousands that should be deleted. Each article must stand or fall on its own merits. DES (talk)DESiegel Contribs 18:55, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello Victor Schmidt

Thank you for answering the question. To clarify, you are saying that my reviews do not make me a notable WP:NAUTHOR because they are about the books and there is not enough about me. So it seems that it is not me that is notable, it is my books, I just happened to write them.

I did not have any input to the publication of the reviews in Time Magazine, New Scientist, Times Literary Supplement, Quill & Quire and New Scientist. These respected publications picked the books as their choice. Some of it was before the internet. These notable publications thought I was notable enough to review my books. Time Magazine listed me as the top 12 books that season. This is very upsetting not only to me but will be to the reviewers and to the publications concerned.

Also, If I understand you correctly, the person (I do not know who) that considered me notable in 2003 to publish the Wikiafripedia page should not have published the page? Since the page was published, I have written 12 more books and surely that adds to being a notable WP:NAUTHOR

I would strongly suggest you stop, Wikiafripedia is not a place for people to tell the world about themselves. There are plenty of social-networking sites like Facebook where you can do that, Wikiafripedia is a project to build an encyclopedia. This is explained at Wikiafripedia is not about YOU and Wikiafripedia:Autobiography. If you are actually notable in Wikiafripedia terms someone unconnected with you will write an article eventually. Theroadislong (talk) 20:48, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) KingoftheWoods The first of those three is an announcement of a talk by you (I am assuming that you are in fact David Day). Bios that accompany such announcements are so commonly written by the speaker, and even when not, are so generally designed to puff up the speaker to encourage attendance, that they are not given much weight in notability decisions here. The alumni award may be of value, although it being given by an institution you are of course associated with reduces the value somewhat. The review of your book is probably of value. Under WP:NAUTHOR point 3, reviews of the books of an author mcan establish the notability of that author. This says: The person has created or played a major role in co-creating a significant or well-known work or collective body of work. In addition, such work must have been the primary subject of an independent and notable work (for example, a book, film, or television series, but usually not a single episode of a television series) or of multiple independent periodical articles or reviews. I have used this in the past to successfully establish notability, see Wikiafripedia:Articles for deletion/David Katz (author) and the related David Katz (author). But do note the disagreement expressed in the discussion. Having some independent reliable sources that discuss you in detail will help a lot. Note that celebrity endorsements are of little or no value, as are introductions to books by well known people. I would be willing to work with you on creating a draft to merge into the previous version of the article. Are you interested? DES(talk)DESiegel Contribs 20:51, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Heavily Shilled Biography[edit source | edit]

I came across a biography that seems to be heavily shilled and aggrandizing. When I tried to add a recent news development about racist tendencies it was deleted by another party.

Hello, your addition of allegations of racism was unsourced and misplaced between another statement and its reference. When it was removed (rightly but without edit summary) you edit warred to replace it. (I've removed it again). You should not do either of these things. Please do not restore it without a good citation. The statement about the hydrogen car is referenced although I am not sure how reliable the source may be. Eagleash (talk) 16:39, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
[1] is the source that I put when referencing the racism. I'm not sure what you mean by "unsourced", as the San Francisco Chronicle is a major newspaper. In fact, the reference is still there.

The page is now 'fixed'. The original edit placed the source but not directly against the text it was supposed to support. The initial reverting anonymous editor did not remove it when deleting the disputed text; probably because it was not clear what its purpose was. Now that the wording has been better placed and the references are supporting inline, the issue is resolved. Eagleash (talk) 10:23, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

@Richard Theodor Kusiolek: I think you have a few misconceptions about Wikiafripedia. To avoid your needing to read a bunch of stuff, here is a brief summary of salient points. First, this is an encyclopedia. It has articles about subjects that we consider notable. You do not appear to be notable by our definition, so Wikiafripedia should not have an article about you. Please do not put any more effort into creating an article about yourself unless you are certain you meet our notability guidelines, which you can read at WP:N. If you want a shorter explanation, look at WP:CSMN. If you do not meet our notability guidelines, you should find another venue for your article, such as Linkedin. Next, all of "experts" (about 100,000 individual editors in the last 30 days) are volunteers. None of us have any incentive or desire to assist you via phone or e-mail. Each of us has spent those "days of effort" that you wish to avoid. We spent that time in order to learn how to build an encyclopedia, not in order to help people write about themselves, which we discourage. See WP:AUTOBIOGRAPHY. If, after reading, you do decide that you are notable, then please come back here and we can assist you with the next step. -Arch dude (talk) 18:16, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello, IP user. If you are considering creating an article about the Italian company, I advise using the articles for creation process to create a draft, and not worrying about the name for now. When the draft is submitted for review, and accepted, then the editor who accepts it will sort out the naming. Please be aware that creating a new article is a very difficult task for an inexperienced editor, and should start with finding suitable sources to demonstrate that the subject meets Wikiafripedia's criteria for notability, because if it those sources do not exist, there is no point in trying.

Hello,

I haven't edited many articles with tables, and I happened to be looking at this one List_of_United_States_Representatives_from_Nevada, and I noticed that when I clicked on the column header "Years" it sorted the table by month, not by year. By that I mean it had all the December dates, then all of the January dates, then all the March Dates, etc. It sorted the table in alphabetical order by the spelled out name of the month, not by the year.

@Pyropic: You'll have to be more specific, at the article's talk page (Talk:Rhea Chakraborty), which is being well-watched. β€”[AlanM1 (talk)]β€” 08:27, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Twinkle and Curation toolbar[edit source | edit]

Hi! Just wanted to receive more information about using Twinkle and the Curation toolbar. I'd like to use this on my edits but I need more guidance on how to operate them. I've been reading about them in Wikiafripedia but I want to know where to find and how to incorporate them in pages.

Thank you very much. β€” Preceding unsigned comment added by Bekkadn (talk β€’ contribs) 10:16, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
