hi[edit]

please see this aticle Chaim Walkin and rate it's importance if you feel so. --Korach (talk) 11:08, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh ye of little faith[edit]

You should trust the Israeli Harry Potter fans, who updated the Wikipedia article minutes after I updated my blog. — Preceding unsigned comment added by woggly (talkcontribs)


Six-Day War[edit]

Thanks for your note. I've been quite frustrated on that page, particularly with Paul Kuipers, who refuses to actually engage on the Talk: page, and instead just uses it for WP:CIVIL violations. Because of his belligerence and edit-warring I've had to withdraw from editing it entirely for over a week now, even though there's useful information I'd like to add in various sections. I'm hoping if more neutral editors start working on the article it might calm down enough for regular people to start editing again. Jayjg (talk) 21:49, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I hope you're right. I tried an edit today - let's see what happens. Jayjg (talk) 02:30, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of Tagalog Wikipedia article[edit]

I was surprised that you have deleted Wikipedia Tagalog without informing the editors or posting a message in Tambayan Philippines. The argument about Wikipedia:CSD#A7 is a classic example of systematic bias. Please remember that English Wikipedia is NOT US/UK/CA/Aus/NZ-only Wiki. Thank you. Starczamora (talk) 05:09, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Deletion of my articles[edit]

Hi Yonatan,

Ma Nishma? I am new to wiki, and I got my articles deleted. I didn't get a chance to modify them to fit wiki rules, can you help me?

Thanks --Meravmarci (talk) 14:25, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Could you please send me the articles, pre-deletion? Also, as you are an administrator,could you please intercede in the dispute over software developer Nova Development? Thanks?

WikiProject Judaism Newsletter[edit]

Shavuot celebrates Moses receiving the Ten Commandments.

What's This?
Shalom aleichem sports fans, and welcome to the first of what I hope will be a monthly newsletter with the need-to-know information about our fair WikiProject. If you have any questions or comments, or would like to recommend a story for the newsletter, click here to leave a message on the Newsletter Coordinator's talk page.
In the News

  • WikiProject Good Articles is doing sweeps over all our current good articles to ensure they still meet criteria. For more information and how you can help, check out WikiProject Good Articles Sweeps.
  • GA status for the article Jew has been put on hold pending a few minor revisions. A list of things that need to be done to return this top importance article to its proper status can be found here.
  • Jerusalem is a Featured Article Candidate! Go forth, my people, and !vote!

To Do

  • One new Judaism-related article was created this month, the long requested Hebrew Punctuation. Thanks to Epson291 for creating it. Remember, folks, there are over forty standing requests for Judaism articles, so whenever you get the opportunity make sure to go create a few.
  • In the right column you will see a listing of our most popular articles. All of these articles got 170,000+ page hits in the past month, and they should be on everyone's watchlist so we can keep them vandalism-free.
  • Spread the word! No, not the Word... (well, you can do that too) I'm talking about inviting knowledgeable users to join the project. You can proclaim your undying love of WikiProject Judaism in methods mild to wild, check the project template page and member list for examples. We also now have a flashy advertisement, to use it add {{Wikipedia ads|ad=148}} to your userpage.

Haredi Judaism

I have proposed Haredi Judaism be merged into Orthodox Judaism, i would appreciate if you read my Merger proposal impartially, and resolve it by a consensus of at least 10 wikipedians. ephix (talk) 12:26, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Judaism Newsletter[edit]

Worship of the Golden Calf

Now with 200% more Jewishness!
Yes, folks, we're moving on up. This newsletter is now the newsletter for both WikiProject Judaism, WikiProject Jewish History, and WikiProject Kabbalah. In the future, I may split them, but for now I think we'll be just fine with one. As always, any questions or comments should be directed to me, L'Aquatique.

A Special Dispatch
Just a note, not aimed at anyone in particular. By order of the administrative cabal, it is officially not cool (and possibly dickish) to call someone an anti-semite when they aren't being anti-semitic. Anti-semitic is a very charged word, and it's important only to use it when you're absolutely sure it applies, lest it become the subject of a Godwin-esque law. Remember Hanlon's Razor: never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
In the News

  • A new class on the importance scale has been added- C Class- which covers articles better than start but not quite to B Class yet. It is up to the WikiProjects to decide whether to adopt them or not. Currently, there has been little discussion within our Projects, so if you feel strongly either way be sure to note so at your Project[s].
  • There is a proposal to reword the section on NPOV regarding religious articles. Please see Wikipedia_talk:NPOV#Religion section - Disputes between historians or scientists and religious_views to weigh in.
  • Thanks largely to the efforts of Xyz7890, a new navbox has come into being featuring Halakha topics. See: Template talk:Halakha to join in the conversation about how it can best be improved.

To Do

  • The Simple English Wikipedia is beginning a project of creating and improving articles related to religion, including Judaism. At the present time, volunteers are needed to propose our most important subjects for articles to be created. The official working list is here and a more extended list is here. If you are unsure of proper topics, you might try checking our lists of top importance level articles: Judaism and Jewish History. (WikiProject Kabbalah currently doesn't have such a list)
  • [Simple English] WikiProject Christianity is considering running a monthly drive wherein two or three top importance articles from English Wikipedia are simplified and moved over to S.E. They have extended an offer to work with us in creating a similar project for Judaism related articles. For questions or volunteer opportunities, please contact User:John Carter.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah is in dire need of an article rating system for quality and importance. If you are familiar with that system and have some time on your hands, please create one. It could also use some infoboxes...

The Judaism Newsletter[edit]

Sir Moses Montefore, a Jewish activist who died 123 years ago this month

"Censorship" of names of G-d
There is an interesting discussion currently taking place regarding whether or not it is acceptable to censor (i.e. G-d, HaShem->YodHey) names of G-d in articles to protect Jews who may be reading or editing the article. You can weigh in here: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Judaism#Yahweh.

Article Cleanup Lists
User:B. Wolterding has generously offered us use of his bot to generate lists that show which articles of ours are tagged for cleanup. You can read more about this service here: User:B._Wolterding/Cleanup_listings and if you would like to take him up on his offer, contact him on his talk page.

In the News

The Jewish Barnstar
The New Jewish Barnstar
  • There is a collaboration drive to get Holocaust in Lithuania to good article status. For information about how you can help, see the talk page or contact User:Piotrus.
  • WikiProject Kabbalah's only Featured and Good articles have been removed from the WikiProject, on the grounds that neither article (Diane Keaton and David Beckham, respectively) actually mention the subject's affiliation with Kabbalah. If you have sourced information linking either of these people to Kabbalah, please add it so the articles can be returned to the WikiProject.
  • After a rather heated discussion, there are now two barnstars for use by the Jewish WikiProjects, {{The Jewish Barnstar}} and {{The New Jewish Barnstar}}, and you can choose which one you would like to use.. Remember: barnstars are for rewarding users who are doing good work on the project or on Judaism, Jewish History, or Kabbalah articles, and anyone can give anyone else a barnstar. If you see a user who you thinks deserves a thank you, give them a barnstar!

To Do/Help Requests

  • If you have some spare time on your hands, we could use an article about a Kabbalah scholar named Moshe Idel. According to HG there are quite a few sources easily available, you can contact him if you have questions. Be sure to nominate it for DYK if the finished article is eligible.
  • The folks at Shimon Peres need some assistance from someone familiar with both the Hebrew calendar and language to help them figure out the subject's birthday. If you can help, please see Talk:Shimon_Peres#Birthday.

New Members

New Articles

  • Bezalel Rudinsky (thanks Shirulashem!}, Jewish tartan (thanks Briangotts!), Hebrew spelling (thanks Epson291)
  • We get a lot of articles that are being created and not announced! By announcing new articles, you attract attention to them, and the more people looking and editing the better they will get. If you would like your new article to appear in the newsletter, add it here for Judaism and Kabbalah and here for Jewish History.

You beat me to it.[edit]

I was going to add Koman Coulibaly to the flagged revisions trial but then I noticed you already had. Seems like a perfect candidate. Let's see how it goes. I also mentioned the trial on the talk page so folks understand what happened. Ronnotel (talk) 18:34, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Heh, tbh I haven't been active on wikipedia for... I guess it's been a few years now so I wasn't even aware of the ongoing trial, some other admin added it to the trial earlier - I just didn't notice it so I semi-protected it... Yonatan talk 18:47, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Hi Yonatan, just wondering whether you could do anything regarding the mysterious speedy deletion of International Feng Shui Association ( as well as the taging for deletion for two of the photos that I already obtained permission to use them on restricted basis ) ?

Here is the same content that I wrote in the Talk page:


Like any associations for any disciplines such as the IEEE, ACM, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and American Institute of Architects, as spear-heading non-profit association is needed in order to establish a common code of conduct, share knowledge, promote to higher level such as Fellow of an organization and meet up for general meetings. The International Feng Shui Association is essential a non-profit Feng Shui organization like the professional or non-profit organizations mentioned above. It has a number of world renounced GrandMasters in its core committee that would serve to advance the field as well as promote deserving practitioners to Masters or Grand Masters grade upon reaching the required benchmark standards.

No other Feng Shui organizations in the world is of this magnitude and reach-out. So this page was created to help promote the art / meta-physics of Feng Shui. This is an international organization that attracts renounced speakers and participants from all parts of the world including USA, UK, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Mexico. It is not a local club level organization whereby it is organized by less qualified enthusiasts.

I am very sure people from all over the world would interested in Feng Shui would be looking forward to events organized by this association. Making it easier to reach out to search for them.

In case you are thinking that I took money to write this page, I assure you that I did not. As you could see, I have been contributing to Wikipedia because I like the contents in Wikipedia and has been benefiting from speedy search for information. So I thought it would be nice to educate or less the readers know about the facts that I wrote (which I am more familiar with) especially if they are useful. However, I also admit that I had taken courses conducted by one of the renounced GrandMasters but my writting of this page is independent of him ( he did not even know I wrote this page when I wrote it). Also I am currently not a member of the association.

I hope you would be undeleting this page as it is useful and took some effort to research, write as well as get copyright permissions from the respective organization for use in Wikipedia.


Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.255.2.61 (talk) 05:33, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Notice of change[edit]

Hello. You are receiving this message because of a recent change to the administrator policy that alters what you were told at the time of your desysopping. The effect of the change is that if you are inactive for a continuous three year period, you will be unable to request return of the administrative user right. This includes inactive time prior to your desysopping if you were desysopped for inactivity and inactive time prior to the change in policy. Inactivity is defined as the absence of edits or logged actions. Until such time as you have been inactive for three years, you may request return of the tools at the bureaucrats' noticeboard. After you have been inactive for three years, you may seek return of the tools only through WP:RFA. Thank you. MBisanz talk 00:20, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
