Hello, UriBudnik, Welcome to Wikipedia!
I hope you like working here and want to continue. If you need help on how to name new articles, look at Naming Conventions, and for help on formatting the pages visit the Manual of Style. If you need general help, look at Help and the FAQ, and if you can't find your answer there, check the Village pump (for Wikipedia related questions) or the Reference Desk (for general questions). There's still more help at the Tutorial and the Policy Library. Also, don't forget to visit the Community Portal — and if you have any more questions after that, feel free to post them on my New-Users' Talk Page.
Additional tips:
Here are some extra tips to help you get around Wikipedia:
  • If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username.
  • If you want to play around with your new Wiki skills, try the Sandbox.
  • Click on the Edit button on a page, and look at how other editors did what they did.
  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too. Always sign comments on Talk pages, never sign Articles.
  • You might want to add yourself to the New User Log
  • If your first language isn't English, try Wikipedia:Contributing to articles outside your native language
Happy editing!

I did not know that about MacArthur. Thanks for informing me. The information is not in the Judo article, which I checked before making my change to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I guess I would want to read some source or something before re-adding it, and I think it would be more appropriate for the Judo article tna in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Wanted to set up a possible collaboration with you to get some of these MMA stubs filled out and a few of the nonexistant articles written. Been too busy at work to write all of the articles in Royce Gracie like I wanted to, but I should have the chance this evening and over the weekend. Your work on martial arts pages in general made me figure you would be the man to ask. Hit me back at my talk page and lets get started should you have the time! --Aika 18:04, May 19, 2005 (UTC)

Prey (novel)[edit]

Thanks for deleting my mistakes section in the Prey (novel) article, I have transferred it to the article discussion section (which I was going to do anyway) and hopefully it clarifies a few things.--Mohamo July 7, 2005 07:32 (UTC)

Yom Kippur War move[edit]

Regarding the move of that article to a new title, you might want to look at Talk:Territories_under_Israeli_control#Article_title_dispute. Jayjg (talk) 05:21, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

My pleasure. Jayjg (talk) 12:47, 30 September 2005 (UTC)

Another motion to move Yom Kippur War[edit]

I am notifying the people who voted in the previous poll a few weeks ago that another motion to move Yom Kippur War has been made. See Talk:Yom_Kippur_War#Requested_move - Raul654 19:23, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

translation on Mexican General Election[edit]

Uri, I feel that my version of the translation is best. The reasons are: 1. Political slogans should be short and sweet. The original is indeed short: "Mover a México para que las cosas se hagan." This is direct and pithy. The translation I made is similarly short: "Moving Mexico so that things get done." In my opinion, "moving" does not mean simply "changing direction". Also, 2. In English literature, "moving" certainly does connote "activity". Witness a famous translation from the Koran: "If Mohammed will not come to the mountain, the mountain will come to Mohammed," which gives rise to the common proverb "moving mountains" (i.e., to get things done). There is another proverbial expression, "moving heaven and earth" to get something done. So, "moving Mexico" certainly does fit with traditional English expression regarding activity and action. The version "putting Mexico in motion" does not dovetail neatly with the original, and it is overly wordy. glasperlenspiel 05:33, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Link policy[edit]

I don't know of an "official policy" - but my "rule of thumb" has been to eliminate multiple links within the same paragraph or even in a section. One link per section, for example. What confused me about your edit is that you left mutliple copies of that link in the article (see the infobox as well), but you took out that one. - 12:21, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Talk:Boston Tea Party[edit]

Howdy, I noticed that you and I seem to post in one or two articles dealing with progressive issues in political science/sociology. There's currently a debate beginning in Boston Tea Party as to whether the article should include the category [1]. It meets definitions set in the articles Terrorism and Definition of terrorism, however, there are several self-proclaimed patriots who watch BTP who refuse to recognise the fact. The simple criteria for terrorism generally seem to be intimidation or destruction of property in order to change public policy or public opinion while a state of war has not yet been declared. Some users would rather use recent acts of terrorism as a yardstick, rather than using a firm definition, and hence lose their ability to discuss matters calmly. Would you be able to pop in to the Talk page and join in the discussion? Thanks much, samwaltz 05:31, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Tree of Tenere.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Tree of Tenere.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Samuell Lift me up or put me down 03:11, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Tree of Tenere.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Tree of Tenere.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:18, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
