why you deleted my edits on the historical regions of china category page

from my knowledge, those links i added are factual and correct, even though they might be outdated? Moresnet (talk) 07:05, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

@Moresnet: If you had read the link I put in my edit summary you would have understood why I reverted your edit. That was not the correct way to add a category to an article. You should add the category (if relevant) at the at the bottom of each article, not adding links to articles on category pages, Wikipedia:FAQ/Categorization#How_do_I_add_an_article_to_a_category?.

Re Deletion discussion of Patrick McGuire (solicitor) article

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Deletion_sorting/Scotland

Hi Shellwood,

As an editor with a COI, I have declared clearly my association with Patrick McGuire and worked hard to create a neutral article about this notable Scottish solicitor. The current page does not represent his work well and is not up to date. The sources are indeed not comprehensive. I drafted a more thorough and well-sourced page in my Sandbox and asked for it's approval, but the page has been deleted. Can you advise as to how I can show Patrick's notability when the suggestions for improvements I make are deleted very speedily without, or so it seems, full review by a number of other editors. Heartmusic678, recently added some requested updates so they therefore must feel the additions helped the page. Could you offer some advice, please, it would be very much appreciated. Kind regards ShimsCabot (talk) 10:06, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

@ShimsCabot: Hello, and thanks for your message. Have you considered engaging in the current deletion discussion? If you can prove that McGuire meets WP:GNG and enough contributors agree to keep it, the page can be saved. Hope this helps, Heartmusic678 (talk) 16:55, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
@Heartmusic678: Hello, and thank you for your suggestion. No, I havn't engaged as of yet, but I will do. I had hoped that my Sandbox redraft version of the page, which had many reliable sources, such as BBC News and a number of top Scottish Media outlets, would help prove notability, but as it has been deleted, I am back to square one in my attempts to improve the current page. I will keep on trying and again, many thanks for your assistance. ShimsCabot (talk) 17:09, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
@ShimsCabot: You're welcome. You will definitely want to include the sources form your redraft in the deletion discussion. Someone should be able to check whether they are independent and reliable. Heartmusic678 (talk) 19:30, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

COVID-19 total figures

Hi Shellwood, thanks so much for updating several of the countries in Template:COVID-19 cases in Asia and Template:COVID-19 cases in Oceania. Appreciate your help in updating these figures. Just a suggestion, one way of calculating the total figures for case numbers, active cases, deaths, and recoveries is to copy and paste content from the tables on a Microsoft Excel document. Then use the average formula to generate total figures. Hope this helps and keep up the good work. Andykatib 09:35, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

@Andykatib: The problem is that the definition of being recovered from covid-19 varies across countries. I have always seen this as problematic when making total figures based on that, you can go ahead and update the total figures I'm not going to go there. Remember that we are all volunteers here, each one do as much as they see fit. Shellwood (talk) 10:44, 15 January 2022 (UTC)
@Shellwood: Thanks for getting back in touch. Have to admit I was not aware about the variation in recoveries across different countries. Will do my best while remembering that we are both volunteers. Will be happy to update the total figures but will be careful due to the issue with recoveries that you highlighted. Cheers.
