Welcome to Simple! I hope you are happy editing here and being a Wikipedian. Some helpful pages to start you off are Wikipedia:Useful, Help:Contents and Wikipedia:Policy.

If you want to meet and talk with other members, you can visit our version of the "village pump" at Wikipedia:Simple talk. Just remember that you should sign your messages on Talk pages by typing "~~~~" (four tildes) at the end of your words.

We have a special page that describes how to write Simple English articles. If you want some ideas of which pages to work on, read Wikipedia:Requested articles.

We are also focusing on core articles until this Wikipedia grows.

Even though it is a good idea to research an article (like looking at the discussion page) before making large changes, do not be afraid to be bold! Any changes you make that are not perfect can be fixed later.

Finally, if you have any questions on how things work, don't hesitate to ask me. The best way to do that is to leave a message on my talk page. Happy editing! Blockinblox 17:05, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Slavoj Žižek[change source]

Per this ...

From the source, a direct quote

Žižek’s work, which reflects this paradoxical situation in a number of ways, has made him one of the world’s best-known public intellectuals.

but you deleted

and has been called "one of the world's best known public intellectuals,"[1][2] and "the thinker of choice for Europe's young intellectual vanguard."[source?]

with an edit summary of "rm cited nonsense and uncited quote"

but, it is in the source The New York Review of Books by John Gray at the London School of Economics

Might this have been an error on your part? (talk) 07:08, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Here is more. (talk) 07:09, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Per, how about changing the sentence fragment to "acccording to John N. Gray in a 2012 New York Review of Books article Žižek has become 'one of the world’s best-known public intellectuals.'"? The reference seems worth keeping, even if the excerpt is not the interesting part. (talk) 00:33, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
