Nominations for delisting[edit]

Hi Moshe!
As per request I've added those images for delisting --Fir0002 09:02, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

List of circulating currencies[edit]

You recently added the Micronesian dollar to the list of circulating currencies page. The link you provided is a picture of a coin minted in 1989 [1]. If you can find any evidence that the Marshall Islands has minted any commemoratives since 2003, the entry will stay on the list. Otherwise it will have to be removed. – Zntrip 03:40, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick response. The Nauruan dollar is on the list because the last minted coin, that I could find, was in 2005 [2]. I guess I’ll have to remove the Marshall Islands dollar unless we ever find out about a new minting. – Zntrip 04:57, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Learning Esperanto[edit]

Hi, you wrote on my user page about learning Esperanto. I would recommend you go to www.lernu.net and take the free lessons there. If you have any more detailed questions, feel free to email me: chuck at tejo.org. Best wishes!

HS[edit]

Hi there, MosheA. Sorry I took so long to get back to you. The reason I restored the quotation marks around the word "supremacist" in the external link to the CCIR on the Hispanic supremacy article was because, if you read those quotes, they are subject to a wide variety of interpretations. Some may express hostility toward us gringos, but that is not the same as an outright declaration of supremacy. But aside from that, these quotes are listed by a group that is claiming that "Hispanics" and Latinos in the US and our organizations are supremacist. Therefore, I feel it is important not to take their word for absolute truth. Please let me know how you feel about this issue. Gracias, --Rockero 06:20, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Commons Image deletion[edit]

Hi. I can't delete images, here or at Commons. Wikipedia and Commons, although connected, are different and an admin, who are the only people who can delete images, at Commons aren't always an admin here at Wikipedia, and vice versa. However, there are things you can do, such as using this template at Commons. I have put it on the image you wanted deleted already for you. Putting this template on an image that is duplicated will let the admins that can delete images know that the image should be deleted, and they will do so. I hope I've cleared some things up for you. That is a nice image by the way. =) --MECUtalk 19:32, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the barnstar![edit]

Hi Moshe!
Sorry for taking so long to get round to thanking you properly, but was engaged elsewhere! Anyway thanks a lot! --Fir0002 01:10, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: 63 x 927 = 58401[edit]

Have you tried communicating with the user himself? Often, simply advising inexperienced users that their contributions aren't helping the encyclopædia (and I'd agree that many of this user's edits are trivial) is enough to get them to either stop or contribute more constructively. In addition to this, however, I'd note that the user isn't doing anything strictly disruptive – that is, they're not violating any policies. Thanks,--cj | talk 22:51, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Aramaic Wiktionary[edit]

Seeing your knowledge in Aramaic, I believe that you may be interested in something that has been recently proposed on Meta. If you'd like to help us get the Aramaic Wiktionary established, please add your name to the "Users interested in forming an editing community" section, and voice your support in the section labeled "Arguments in favour". Thanks! :-) אמר Steve Caruso (desk/AMA)Give Back Our Membership! 06:28, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

User:Arab League[edit]

Mahrib (is it "maah-reeb" or "maaCH-[guttural]-reeb"?) Masjid (is it "mas-jeed" or "mas-yeed"?) Hijab (is it "hee-jab" or "hee-yab"?)

ok, for a start i dont think there is such word as Mahrib, i think you mean Maghrib..

the gh is a sound made like a growl, made by an angry dog...

as for Masjid, it is pronounced Masdjid mas- is prounounced like Mass (as in mass communication) but the a is not extended, but rather short like the word (but) but with an A instead of the U, as for the j, it differs in Accents, Egyptians pronounce it a "g" for greece, while in East Arab World it is pronounced a normal "J", while in West Arab World it is pronounced "DJ", and it is the correct form.


and for Hijab, the H in the Hijab sounds like when you have something stuck in your throwt, or the same sound of a gas leekage, or like a lizards voice... and is found in the Hebrew language as well, not sure which one exactly, and the j is always pronounced as a J, G, or DJ... we never pronounce a J into a Y like in Spanish...

i hope i was helpfull.... NB: youv been to alot of countries, but not one Arab country, you should go there...

User:Willowridge[edit]

Please investigate User:Willowridge; he is going around doing subtle vandalism (such as changing people's birth years). I already posted a warning on his talk page, but I'm not an admin. Thanks, --MosheA 20:57, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

P.S. - Am I allowed to warn vandals if I am not an admin? If not, then I heartily apologize for doing so.

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention! I reverted some inappropriate edits performed by this user.
Indeed, you are allowed (and encouraged) to warn vandals. —David Levy 21:44, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

your account on french-speaking wikipedia[edit]

Hi!
I received your message from my user page. I checked your contributions on fr wiki, and there is no pb. I just removed page fr:Utilisateur:MosheAMosheA which seems to be a mistake (you removed everything in it). The account on fr-wiki fr:User:MosheA is well created. You can use it as you like :)

Aramaic Wiki[edit]

Hallo,

Ich gesehen Ihr Aramaic Wiki seite, und von dort, ich gesehen alle von Ihr andere Wikis. Ich habe ein Fragen: tuten Sie alle von dieser Sprachen-Wikis, oder gibt es ein extra Weise in welcher es tuten? Vielen dank, --MosheA 04:03, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

bitte antworten mir auf Anglish, wie Sie kannn sehen, das mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut :)


I am having logins on about 210 Wikipedias at the moment. I made one edit at least on each of those (beyond my user page), almost always adding or altering an interwiki link, or, maybe, several over the time. Whenever I stumble over an opportunity to do something on another language Wikipedia, I do. Of course I am unable to read or understand all those languages, and some scripts. Nevertheless, I am capable to navigate them, using the native language interface almost everywhere, since I memorize where functions are located by screen layout. Also, it does help to use the generic (english) names of some special pages.
I get to the right pages following interwiki link chains, starting from a language I know, usually adding Ripuarian, and possibly others ones, that I have collected along the way. Sometimes, I cannot do what I want, since existing interwiki links and their backwards links are ambiguous. If there are no images, or helpful international words in the foreign language pages, I am lost, and unable to decide what their exact meaning is. I must leave linking these pages to others, then.
I think, or hope, I caught enough of your German, to give a useful answer. By the way, tuten is to honk as with the horn of a car; I believe you meant tuen = tun, which is both to do and some of to make (but not to create) -- so I have choosen to understand what you wanted to say as: Do you do something in all of those languages' wikies? and the answer is Yes as written above. Just tell me if I am wrong, or gave an incomplete answer, or if you want more comments in order to improve your German :-)
Many greetings --Purodha Blissenbach 01:48, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: Hemicorporectomy[edit]

I have no proof that the blog is bullshit. What made me suspicious was the tick-the-box matter of fact description of the reasons why the writer claimed the op was required (and by this I don't mean any lack of emotion, just the reasons/background seemed totally lacking in personal medical information and had no detail on how his supposed congenital condition had deteriorated to the point where the surgery was necessary). One paragraph introduced this and then he went on to explain how he also had to have a tracheostomy as well. Again all too convenient with no alternate or experience of previous treatments mentioned. There was no follow-through, no plausible post-op or rehabiliative information given at all.

Finally, the blog was one entry only. I suspect it was the work of a quasi-surgical/hospital sexual/emotional fantasist who got drunk one evening and laid it out in one go and unsurprisingly never got around to filling in the rest of his alleged extraordinary experience.

To summarize then: it was the tone of language, the lack of personal info and any info on the surgical/nursing care or personnel, no realsitic descriptions of possible prosthetic or rehab plan, no follow-up and what extra details were given are all suggestive of a hospital-hot wannabe dreamworld crasher. You'd be amazed at what we get in the ER on Saturday nights - a lot of people find the whole scene a turn-on. As someone who is no stranger to such wishful-thinkings, this blog struck me immediately as fake for the above reasons and also because people sadly are attention whores given half the chance and an interesting reason that wastes people's time. I deleted the link but will go over it in more detail if you wish. However, trust me on this one - it was bullshit all the way. Plutonium27 22:11, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

Hi, Moshea! I'd be glad to adopt you, or at least give you some guidance, if I can. As for wanting to become an administrator, I would certainly encourage you to try, but we should talk about a few things in RfA before you apply. I would also ask you to seriously consider if you want to be an admin or not. There was a time when I wanted to be an admin, but the process of attaining adminship is so corrupted and broken that I discovered there was really no way I'd ever fit the lofty expectations at RfA. Hope to hear from you soon. Kntrabssi 16:13, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Cornish[edit]

Certainly there are fluent speakers, although their estimated numbers vary from single digits to the low three figures, depending on how forgiving your criteria of fluency are. There are also about five or ten native speakers, whose parents were Cornish revivalists. Myself I've learned Cornish with books that I've ordered from Cornwall, or bought there myself; correspondence (by letter and email); and from websites. There are a number of online resources I could point you to, but Maga links to a lot of them, so you could try there first. Kernewek Dre Lyther and Teer ha Tavaz have online courses. It's an exciting time to be joining the language movement, because in September the Cornish Language Partnership is expected to outline an official spelling system, or at least move us one long step in that direction. Meantime, there's a good bit of new government money coming in for language activities, which is immediately evident from the newfound sleekness of a number of Cornish language websites.

Cornish II[edit]

Hey Moshe, its me, the hemicorp-stalker nurse! I live in Cornwall now - indeed all my folks are from the county and those that moved to London in the 70'[s (like my parents did to look for work and where I was born) are now back home - and I can assure you there are Cornish speakers alive and well. Some families insist on it being the first language at home and it is taught in schools as an alternative to GCSE level. I can speak a few lines and even had a Cornish-1 Babel template on my usepage. I got rid of it as -in my opinion - not being able to hold a factual conversation with a patient precludes me from claiming I can speak a language. Plutonium27 14:55, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Images transferred to Commons[edit]

OK, I went through your upload log and you had six images appropriate for transfer to Commons.

I noticed some of these could also use better image descriptions. Thanks.--Pharos 20:50, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

I think the issue here is that IMDb is a user-edited website like Wikipedia, and so is not considered a WP:RS. Often using a "standard response" message like Ward3001 did can obscure communication—but don't sweat it, I receive such messages too from time to time, and it's no shame to get such a message. But it is better if you and Ward3001 would express yourself in your own words, rather than with standard messages. Thanks.--Pharos 21:07, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

WP:CVU status[edit]

The Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit project is under consideration to be moved to {{inactive}} and/or {{historical}} status. Another proposal is to delete or redirect the project.

Reena Roy[edit]

Fantastic section on Reena Roy.

Is it possible to add this picture to her review?:

http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q307/reena_roy/reenaroy.jpg

—Preceding unsigned comment added by Armaan888 (talkcontribs)

Firstly, million thanks for replying to my message. Secondly, my sincerest apologies for not using Wikipedia discussion properly but I am new to this site and this is my first post. With regard to the copyright issues on Reena Roy's pictures, I find it strange that Wikipedia is more than happy to virtually "copy" my profile of Reena Roy and present it on here without my permission, but cannot "copy" a picture because of copyright.
80 per cent of Reena Roy's profile on this site is directly copied from my website http://reena-roy.tripod.com. It has now been copied to so many sites including Wikipedia and nobody even knows I originally wrote it. I also noticed other actresses like Rekha and Parveen Babi have their pictures in their profile (taken from screenshots of their films Silsila and Amar Akbar Anothony). Why can't the same apply to Reena Roy?
Anyway I cannot get involved with the stringent and somewhat strange issues of copyright at Wikipeida. I just wished Reena Roy would also have her picture here as she is my favourite actress. Additionally, I am not complaining that a slighly adjusted version of my profile on Reena Roy is being used on this site. I happily give Wikipedia my permission and copyright. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Armaan888 (talkcontribs)

Elvis Presley's anti-Semitism[edit]

Just for your information. Elvis's anti-Semitism is mentioned in Mark Crispin Miller's academic study, Boxed in: The Culture of TV (Northwestern University Press, 1988), p.191. The chapter on "The King" is partly based on accounts by the members of the Memphis Mafia who reportedly spent day and night with Elvis. Certainly these guys must have known whether Elvis had anti-Semitic tendencies. Onefortyone 04:22, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Marshall Islands and Nauru[edit]

Information about the Nauruan language[edit]

Hi MosheA,

Firstly, I want to apologize for this extremely late answer (your question on my Dutch language talk page dates back to July 15, 2007), but I am very busy in real life nowadays and my activities on the Wikimedia projects are almost nil.

Your knowledge of the Dutch language is not a problem at all - on the contrary, I like it very much when others try learning Dutch.

You asked me about my interest in Nauru, well, Nauru interests me like every other country on this world does, but a little bit more, mainly because of the remoteness of the country, and the fact that very few people know something about it. Within a few years, I'll probably travel to Nauru, but any real plans regarding this are still absent. Mainly on Wikipedia, I have read and written lots of things about Nauru, and, together with Palau, Kiribati and Tuvalu, it is one of four countries in which I am most interested of the world's 195.

My personal knowledge of Nauruan is, for the moment, still very basic, as sources about the language, as you already said, are extremely scarse, even on the Internet. I can only recommend you, apart from Delaporte's feeble but very well-known dictionary, the grammar pages compiled in the Wikipedia namespace of the Nauruan Wikipedia edition, only and completely in the English language but somewhat chaotic and never confirmed. Friendly greetings and lots of success, Belgian man (talk) 19:42, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Hemicorporectomy[edit]

Jesus-Jumped-Up-Christ-on-a-Motorbike, that was 2 years ago! Did that piss-poor, pitiful piece of perversion-pretense really manage to stay up for that long? Oh well, that's blog-world for you and so it goes. Am I Jewish? Not halachically: I am a typical East End of London cultural car-crash. Jewish (Russian) ancestry on the side that doesn't count (paternal); on my mother's side I am of Cornish and general Celtic (Protestant) descent (so lay off the Cornish language - I can remember about 50 words, just enough to impress the tourists with, but won't say I can actually speak it). I have spent a combined total of over 3 years in Israel between 1985 and 2002, mostly in Haifa and Red Givatayim. I tried to avoid Al-Quds. You can therefore probably accurately guess my views on the tragic situation in the region. Anyway, as a result of being bred from this religious and nationalist mess - and from spending a couple of years also living in the USA - I'm an atheist and a socialist.

Disappointed[edit]

Moshe, this edit was very disappointing to see. Several editors have made repeated attempts to have you read and understand WP:MEDRS. You seemed to start to get it, because after the discussions about WP:MEDRS, here you suggested that content from 2002 should be removed per WP:MEDDATE (and it was removed at your prompting), and also in the same comment you made note of WP:MEDRS's emphasis on the use of reviews (secondary sources). That was great. So can you explain what happened in this edit? That edit added new biomedical content based on a source from 1893 in addition to sources from 1924, 1932, 1996, 1999 and 2002, in addition to introducing other problems, like basing biomedical content on popular press magazine articles and old primary sources when secondary sources are available. You know that WP:MEDRS-compliant, up-to-date secondary sources from the WHO are available because we discussed them specifically. I have been trying to assume good faith that you were still simply getting up to speed on understanding and applying WP:MEDRS, but after these events, what am I supposed to think? I'd like to give you the opportunity to self-revert your edit as a gesture of good faith. Would you please do that? Zad68 13:05, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Psalms 44:23[edit]

First off, I am very confused as to how one is to communicate with the creator of a page. I can't even explain all the clicks that lead me to you.

But it appears you edited a page that I have a question on.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brit_milah#cite_note-Rabbi_Yaakov_Montrose.2C_2011.2C_pp._29-32-5

That's the page and the source.Shmuel Wosner particularly asserts that the act (of circumcision) ought to be painful, as per Psalms 44:23.

My question is how is Psalms 44:23 interpreted to mean the act of circumcisions out to be painful? Which depending on what version of the bible used (I can't specifically find a Torah version) is Arise, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, and cast us not off to the end. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.78.229.11 (talk) 16:21, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Shalom 184.78.229.11,
Thank you for your comments and welcome to Wikipedia! For info on how to use talk pages, please check out the talk page guidelines. If you're on someone's talk page, click the "New section" on the top right (next to "View history") to start a new section. Also, consider creating an account - this is totally optional, but it's easy, free, and will make things a lot smoother for you.
Regarding your comments on brit milah: the source I used was the secondary source "Halachic World - Volume 3", which provides interpretation and exegesis on the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and other halachic works. I don't know how familiar you are with the language of Biblical Hebrew and Biblical exegesis in general, but there's really only one authoritative version of the Hebrew Bible, the Masoretic Text. In this authoritative text, Psalms 44:23 states: "כִּי-עָלֶיךָ הֹרַגְנוּ כָל-הַיּוֹם נֶחְשַׁבְנוּ כְּצֹאן טִבְחָה", which translates to something like "For Thy sake, we are killed all day; we are counted as a sheep for slaughter." Check out the Hebrew version of Psalms, and click the "Hebrew/English/Transliteration" tab, and scroll down to 23 (כג). The many versions of Christian Bibles differ from the single Jewish one, so I would not be surprised to see Psalms 44:23 differ between editions amongst the former.
The actual quote from the source I reference is: "He [Shmuel Wosner] says that the fact that chazal teach us that the pasuk 'For because of you we are killed every day' (Tehilim 44:23) refers to Bris Milah, this implies that the act is supposed to be painful."
Hope that helps! --(Moshe) מֹשֶׁה‎ 17:13, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Lead and sourcing[edit]

Hi Moshe, need to clear up a few things with you:

  1. Please review WP:LEAD. The lead summarizes the most important points of content in the body of the article. This means that there should not be anything in the lead that isn't already covered in the body of the article. There should never be sources in the lead that are not first used in the article body. There should never be new information in the lead that isn't already covered by the article body. I've seen a few times now where you've added new information or sourcing to an article lead and that information or sourcing isn't first worked into the article body. Please don't do that any more.
  2. Please review WP:MEDASSESS. A policy or position statement from a medical organization isn't a commentary from an individual or group of individuals. A commentary can be used to source the views of the individuals. A policy or position statement can be used to source the view of an entire medical organization. One way you can tell the difference between the two is to find the index for the source on PubMed and look at the Publication Types and MeSH Terms. For example, look at the MeSH Terms for PMID 22926180, the AAP's 2012 policy statement, and you will see it says "Organizational Policy", "Pediatrics/standards", "Societies, Medical". Now, look at the Publication Types for PMID 23509170, Frisch 2013, it says "Comment". I know you're interested in editing biomedical information in this area, so it is your responsibility to please start paying attention to the types of sources. One of the reasons I enjoy editing biomedical articles in general is because overall the sourcing is clear, well-categorized and accessible, and disagreements can generally be resolved quickly if the interested parties will do their homework first.

Just curious why...[edit]

Hi Moshe, can I ask you what benefit is added with this edit? It appears to add a second source that supports existing uncontroversial content that is already well-sourced and has never been reverted or otherwise challenged, as far as I can remember. Fundamentally there's nothing wrong with adding a second source like that, I guess, but I'm just puzzled as to why. Zad68 03:26, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Why not? It's well-sourced, but I only see one source backing it up. I was just adding another source saying this. --(Moshe) מֹשֶׁה‎ 03:47, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Racial/Nazi Pseudo-Science[edit]

Hello there. This is in regards to the Arabs page. You did a good job taking down the racial-pseudo-science rubbish about head sizes or whatever. Sadly, such long-proven quackery is rearing it's ugly head aagin on the same page. Namely, the Identity section, as the very first paragraph. Dated from 1932 as well! I'll be starting a section called "Racial Pseudo-Science" to remove the sourced section. I'd really appreciate any thoughts, or any help and input, so that we may hopefully reach a consensus and remove that crap. Thanks. SaSH172 (talk) 11:00, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
